Lasso Needs to Get a Clue
A recent Lasso post
attacked "environmental panhandlers and endorsed efforts by New Braunfels to shut down environmental canvassers. Canvassing organizations such as Texas Campaign for the Environment
and Clean Water Action
use canvasses to inform citizens on environmental issues and to identify and recruit supporters for environmental initiatives. A canvass on matters of public import is an activity clearly endorsed and protected under our First Amendment rights of speech and association. How exactly are we supposed to have an informed electorate if we are prohibited from speaking to one another?
