The "signature" attached by Fred LeFebvre is as follows:
"Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted."Just one example in the use of that signature attachment may be found in the comment made by Fred LeFebvre when he wrote,
"I am ALL FOR citizens united. The story points out that even with citizens united however that corporations don't hold any more sway than unions do which has always been the big crying jag thrown by union members. You haven't really been on the board long enough to know what I think so you might just ask next time. I am all for all types of free speech. And more is spelled m-o-r-e in case you use it again, unless you were trying to spell moron, in which case you don't need help."that you can see for yourself in the following link to the "NOT THE STORY LINE YOU'VE HEARD" SwampBubbles message thread.
What I find interesting that Fred LeFebvre uses the terminology "freedom of speech" in his signature attachment in a way that seems to me that it infers that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the user's speech anywhere and everywhere from being abridged by anyone in anyplace under any and all conditions. The fact of the matter is that the aforementioned inference is nowhere close to the truth. Indeed, the real fact is that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution only protects the free exercise of speech from being abridged by the government of the United States of America.
Freedom of speech in the United States as protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution does not apply to internet social media or to private employers or to newspapers or to anyone or anything that is neither the United States government nor an appendage of the United States government. AND, then, even with the very precise and specific limitation as applied to the government of the United States of America, there are exceptions.

Oh, as an extra to the main topic of this Roland Hansen Commentary, I am providing you with a couple links to learn about the organization for which Fred LeFebvre proclaims his support when he wrote "I am ALL FOR citizens united." Check these out:
