    i think there is a limit to free speech. As long as it is not offending anyone you speak as much as you want.

    There shouldn't be it seems lately that people have taken the first step toward a totalitarian society and put limits on free speech, soon people will be sacrificing freedom for liberty!

    Of course there is a limit and there should be. You shouldn't have the right to cause harm to someone else with your speech.

    Yes; slander and libel are forbidden. Also in some circumstances you are limited even further; when under oath, telling any lie is a crime, although of course it's done often enough :P Also some discriminatory statements are forbidden, and of course serious threats.

    Yes, there is a limit.

    - You can't say anything that will hurt someone.

    - You can't yell out "FIRE!" in a crowded theater; that will just cause mass chaos (bomb threats included).

    Sure, if you threaten Bush, you will most likely go to jail, even if you have no intentions of wanting to do him any harm.
