If you have free speech, yes you have that right.

Speaking of gluten free - i tried it once. Turned out either i have a mild gluten allergy or consciously picking the food I ate based on nutritional values made a significant difference in my disposition. I was more pleasant to be around, more energetic, had less ailments, was more regular in bathroom breaks, and overall felt better.

Of course that was not a proper study and it just as well could have been a placebo effect moving in. I'm back to my old ways again with a few exceptions and do not see much of any reversal though.

Coming from a government that does unconstitutional things against the people, hiding behind force and threat of force against innocents. Fuck off, Obama administration, you are not American, not legitimate, and not a government of a free people operating under the rule of law

that's not how it goes, sadly. Instead hyper-intelligent twats with no engineering ability nor common sense nor understanding of end user needs squat and crap in the open source and closed source pools and either render existing good software nearly useless, or displace the good with their diseased bloated wares that have shit for UI. E.g. GNOME3, Unity, systemd, Windows 8.x etc. and etc.

There is no grasping at all here. If they permit you to hold an event in a park, i am not free to have a touch football game at that time in that same space where i could otherwise.

The line is clearly drawn at a fugitive speaking. A Polanski film wouldn't be the same unless it was Polanski himself making a speech. His music played by either recording or cover band would be the same.

What is at play here is whether or not government has the right to restrict fugitives from special uses of public property. Seeing how they can suspend a fugitive's license, It is clear that they can.

You are very wrong, any competent physicist would tell you so. You have made a religion in your mind about science.

We already know our models such as quantum theory and general relativity are incorrect; they break down in certain situations.

We already know the useful "laws" we use are just approximations, e.g. ohm's law, hooke's law, boyle's law, etc.

You are correct.

There is also nothing in the constitution that says any entity must allow you to use their property at the exclusion of others in order to express your speech. That's what this is. They want to have a concert on public grounds that will in essence restrict other from freely using the same said grounds and the city said no if a wanted criminal and fugitive from law would be a party of it.

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
