To riff on Rush Limbaugh,

22 Feb

the First Amendment does NOT prevent one from criticizing the press. It just gives you, me, and everyone the legal right to express opinions without fear of legal/govenment retribution. That’s it. The press have no more or less freedom of speech than you or me. They are NOT in a privileged position. So some “reporters” need to get off their high horse and recognize that.

A free press is important, but really the bedrock issue is free speech. You don’t have to be a NY Times reporter to have that, and a NY Times reporter has no more of it than you or me. The NY Times reporter is no more immune from criticism than you or me. If they are full of crap, they can be called out on it without any damage whatsoever to the Constitution. So I would say to NY Times reporters to quit your whining and kvetching and defend yourself! AndĀ take that weak sauceĀ and get out of here, you freakin’ loser…

Criticizing the press is just NO problem, Constitutionally or morally. THEY need to tell us why we should believe them over a dog-faced baboon, to quote Socrates. Otherwise it is just a bald-faced appeal to authority, and I don’t buy that, even a little. Upon what grounds are they standing? Why should I believe them?

Shut the heck up!

19 May

Say the loony Democrats. No, it won’t pass. But don’t be confused, this is battle space preparation.

The Democrats are on record as being against free speech. Disgusting! We all need to hope and pray (and act) that it will fail so miserably that they won’t try it again. This is really crossing the Rubicon. The Democrats should be in the minority for two generations over this.

It’s getting to the point that the only real option is Civil Disobedience. Please, not in my day.
