Neighbors Eye Amps, Weigh Wattage

Annoyed at being on an amplifier’s receiving end for hours every Saturday afternoon, the neighbors who live in and around the 700 block of 8th Street NE are learning what it takes to be on the sending side of amplified speech. We’ve been shopping for our very own amplifier.

I don’t think any of the neighbors would say the endeavor has been fun. But we realize the community’s quality of life is at stake. So we scraped together a meager budget to broadcast our troubles.

Amplifiers have specific purposes, we’ve learned. Our criteria: It must be battery powered and it must project the human voice loudly.

With so many makes and models from which to choose, we nearly opted for a guitar amplifier with mega-wattage. “Nay,” said the rep, “It won’t project a voice very far.”

So he steered us to the LIB6000 Liberty MAS Sound System. It will suit all our needs for the June 11 Amplified Free Speech Day. And we were able to simply rent it for a price that was within our budget. With 50 watts, the spec sheet promises 117 decibels at the “speech projection in mode,” whatever that means. “It means loud,” said the rep.

We’ll take it.

you are a drama queen and a prude. Go back in your home and let the people be free.

If it's drama you want, head to the corner of H and 8th Streets NE some Saturday afternoon.

And yes, we do go back into our homes and apartments, where we still can hear the blaring noise.

Peace...

Furious Zion AKA Anya (His Hebrew name)AKA James Henry of VA is a FRAUD!!!! He hides behind his so called beliefs to defraud people; especially women. He's a DECEIVER of the worst kind because he wears sheeps clothing. During the week, he poses as a business man trying to help you make money. On the weekend he's on that corner blasting garbage. So in other words, he's a thief, stealing money, dreams and now the peace and quiet of an entire community.
God will not be mocked! You've hurt his anointed and you will be judged in this life and in the resurrection.
