The Secret Service, who can’t seem to limit their sexual and drunken escapades when in Columbia, now have the power over our free speech thanks to HR 347.
Under this new law (as of last Thursday), the Secret Service will be able to limit the peoples right to protest if they decide it is in the interest of the President’s safety. If you violate their directive, it will be considered a felony.

The law is not limited to buildings or locations as the title suggests, but seems to be “roving” and follows persons protected by Secret Service wherever they go.…Read more: KrisAnneHall.com
