I honestly thought this was some kind of viral joke when I first saw it but after looking around, it seems to be horribly true. A small Arkansas town is attempting to pass a law banning groups from meeting to discuss anything about the town without first getting permission from the town itself and filling out paperwork for permission to discuss the town.
This is nuts but it looks like it’s true. The Council has moved to ban all groups from discussing the city, even in their own home! That’s right. It would be illegal to discuss city matters in your own home.
Thankfully, the Mayor is vetoing the bill but he said he believes it will come back in another form.
