- All informed Americans know that our
joy and happiness founded upon individual wealth and freedom is about to
end. American government has destroyed everything the people of this
once great nation have created, built and fought and died for. Hardworking,
decent, honest people have lost their rewards thanks to the efforts of
arrogant, spineless, non-working gutless politicians and their bureaucratic
stooges at all levels of government in America.
- Parasitic politicians endlessly seeking
payoffs, bribes and power have consistently lived off the fruits of workers,
entrepreneurs and paycheck earners while they in turn merely flap their
gums and continue to slit the goose that provides their very means of power
and wealth. They support laws that make middleclass start-up business
ventures in America extremely unprofitable and have virtually abolished
the "mom and pop" entrepreneurship formerly so vital to our economy.
Big corporations continue to buy away our means of communicating with our
representatives in government so that now it is only they, the corporate
and lobbying interests, that are represented. Soon, it will all come
to and end; what a shame!
- America is imploding. Our own government
planned and executed 9-11. That in itself is a monumental and towering
shock. But the majority of Americans, not just Ed Asner and a handful
of experts in the know, are actually aware of this most horrific crime
ever perpetrated by one group of humans upon another. The victims
of the criminal Bush regime's 9-11 mass genocide, devised to create a false
Iraq flag for an unnecessary war, were just going about their business
and taking care of themselves and their families' financial needs.
The victims were only laboring to earn a living that would result in tax
revenues as well for the government that so ruthlessly killed them.
- Airplanes, once in the dreams of every
little boy that wanted to grow up to become a pilot, and every little girl
that wanted to grow up to become an airline stewardess, are now looked
upon as symbols of death and destruction. Our rotten government has
polluted God's creation so badly that kids today no longer dream of becoming
president, or a nurse, or a fireman or policeman. They aren't even
sure if they will grow up to become "persons."
- The real crime committed by the despicable
felons in Washington and the Israelis in the Pentagon, is their imparting
on US the realization that short of desiring the nuclear carpet-bombing
of Washington DC, or the defeat of our own troops, or simply moving out
of this god-forsaken national cesspool of filth and corruption, there is
little we the people can do about it. Our government has enslaved
US all already, never mind the Halliburton concentration camps under construction.
- The Israeli nuclear blackmail used against
America to force US into wars in the Middle East is now being used against
US also. Either the criminal Bush regime will hit US again with yet
another 9-11, and this time with a nuclear weapon, or they will simply
launch a nuclear attack upon Iran. Either way, our government will
let US know that dissent, disagreement or articulated and expressed opposition
to their agenda of mass murder, destruction and endless war, will simply
not be tolerated. Either we're with them, or we are with the enemies
of the American political state.
- The members of both houses of the United
States Congress are totally complicit with the criminal Bush regime.
I keep hearing suggestions that they are just cowards, but I don't believe
that for a moment. The bottom has completely dropped out of Bush's
approval ratings. Most Americans believe correctly that the Bush
crime machine did 9-11 and lied about Iraq and Saddam. And that includes
those who still support Bush and his cabal of gangsters. Their rationale
is that our beloved president knows what's best for America, so even if
it did take lies to get US to support removing the evil Saddam, it was
well worth it. But Congress would easily be supported by a massive
solid base of Americans if they moved to remove Bush before he launches
another 9-11 or the nuclear strike on Iran but they won't.
- I had hoped that the Libby trial and
the upcoming indictment of Bush's "Porky Pig," Karl Rove, might
provide impetus for some congressional action regarding impeachment; but
that won't happen. The GOP has the majority which provides the media
with an excuse to keep backing and covering for the pro-Israel Bush regime.
And it should be painfully clear by now that there isn't a dime's worth
of difference between the two political parties in crime.
- The imminent nuclear attack on Iran will
launch the best distraction possible for a war criminal president, for
historically the only acceptable truth originates from the victor.
In the case of Bush, victory will be at hand the moment the bombs hit Iranian
soil. And just as in the case of Iraq, "little thought will
be given to the aftermath of war." In fact, everlasting wars
are preferable to terminating even a bad war. Should that cause one
to reflect upon a "good" war, sad to say, such a thing has never
- Should one ponder the American Revolution,
it too wasn't at all necessary. If you think it was, then please
explain how we are better off today under the Bush dictatorship than the
comparative beneficent rule of George III when taxation was without representation,
but now with representation, it is tyranny. Are you reflecting upon
Lexington and Concord, when George III's troops were on their way to confiscate
arms and ammunition from the citizen militia? Consider what elements
of the American police state did in the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans.
Reflect upon the spirit and intent of the Second Amendment, and reflect
upon all the illegal gun controls our Israeli legislators have saddled
US with. The American Revolution is yet another example of excellent
war fighting founded upon failed diplomacy and reason.
- But as regards the exact launching of
our relatively short-lived constitutionally limited republic, July 4, 1776
can indeed be considered the starting point. The Declaration of Independence
was a great beginning, but the ink wasn't even dry yet when this criminal
ship of state started taking on water. The simple-minded offer that
the Revolutionary War was necessary due to the injustices of George III's
taxes. The easily fooled will point to the Stamp Act, or the tax
on tea, or perhaps the Boston "Massacre."
- But compare the latter to 9-11 or the
first Pearl Harbor. Some of the more astute will cite the hassle
over colonial paper money based upon land values versus the Rothschild-backed
Bank of England's debt-based backing. But the war was fought for
the very same reason we are waging war today: imperialistic expansion.
American land speculators, particularly George Washington and Benjamin
Franklin, saw opportunities to create massive fortunes from the cheap acquisition
of virgin American lands in the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys. Of
course, George III and his nobles also had their sights set on these vast
territories of great potential. Both Washington and Franklin attempted
to finagle those lands out from under George III. Washington was
the more successful of the two.
- This brings us to the "greatest
document ever written," to quote the recently "unconvicted"
drug addict, Rush Limbaugh. The Constitution has always been considered
as the rule of law of the land. It has always been represented as
the document that ensured our freedom. But was it? Where is
your freedom right now? The Constitution basically overrode the Declaration
of Independence, the simple truth of the latter founding document being
reliance upon God and the ability of the people to remove errant, tyrannical
government. How does this ability to remove bad tyrannical government
stack up these days?
- If anything, the Constitution has been
proven a miserable failure. Why should anyone be surprised?
It was founded by statists! Washington wanted the ability to acquire
vast land holdings, fought hard and suffered to build America, and was
angry and furious at the government of the combined colonies because of
their inability to agree on military matters and to provide timely, needed
funding for the Continental Army. Does this problem exist today?
- And Franklin wanted the ability to acquire
vast tracts of land by forming a coalition to persuade the government of
George III to enrich him and his friends with favorable deeds and titles
to vast areas of real estate. Alexander Hamilton wanted a central
bank and control of the currency. Each of these Founders saw their
own special interests and opportunities best served by a strong central
government. And now we have it!
- Unlimited wars, unlimited imperialism,
unlimited slavery, and mass murder and destruction, and all brought to
you by the "greatest document ever written." No wonder
Limbaugh doesn't quote this great "living" document much anymore,
and offer comparisons to it and government actions and compliance.
The right political party is now in power.

- Far be it for me to correct Mr. Ted Lang.
My expertise in politics is virtually nonexistent, insofar is writing
political essays, let alone correcting the errors of same. However, I must
react strongly to the errors in your piece, "Land Of The Free - Home
Of The Depraved."
- Correction number one:
- You've got the wrong moniker. It's "Land
Of The Fee, Home Of The Knave!"
- And number two: **
- Those honest, hard working Americans
to whom you refer ... well, those honest, hard working Americans elected
those corrupt officials with nary a how-dee-doo over their qualifications,
their intellectual abilities or their accomplishments. With nary a glimpse
at their indiscretions and history of illegal accomplishments. Take, for
example, the "Whitewater" scandal. Take for example the records
of certain Democrat and Republican Senators and Representatives who
have maintained power in the face of murder, theft and corruption.
- How soon we forget. Most notably, we
forget when the rhetoric begins and these very same politicians open their
mouths and utter fantasy and falsehoodn comes out, the mutterings of the toothless
little Ebenezer Scrooge's of their parties' line. Remember Scrooge at his
regular eating place. He asks for more bread. The waiter tells him that
more bread would be extra. He then proclaims, "No more bread."
- If it don't pay, if it ain't free, it
ain't worth their time. Their time is best spent making money off of U.S.
Their time is best spent doing for themselves and not for you. It is not
what the Constitution demands, nor is it what we must demand from them.
That would be a government of, by and for the PEOPLE. Not the politician.
- So, to blame the politician is
an interesting point. However, never forget who elected them. Something
most political writers ease by as if it were the scenery on an executive
jet flying at 35,000 feet. What scenery?
- And number three:
- Ted Lang writes: "The real crime
committed by the despicable felons in Washington and the Israelis in the
Pentagon, is their imparting on US the realization that short of desiring
the nuclear carpet-bombing of Washington DC, or the defeat of our own troops,
or simply moving out of this godforsaken national cesspool of filth and
corruption, there is little we the people can do about it."
- What? Nothing we can do about it?
Good God of us all, but there are many things we can do about it. For one
thing, we can avoid voting for these crooks. We can DEMAND that our elected
representatives take action on behalf of US, We the People. But no. We
do nothing except bitch and moan. And when the time comes for us to use
our vote, we screw it all up. Big time.
- And pray tell, how many of you
have called, emailed, written or faxed your elected officials and demanded
a say in your governance? How many have demanded not taxing the gross profits
of big oil? No, because that will do nothing but fill government's coffers.
What you should be asking, demanding, is that some of those billions go
back into the pockets of the consumer.
- How many of you have demanded that your
government STOP all illegal immigration now?
- How many of you have demanded that your
elected officials honor their duty to you, the constituency, and not to
- Perhaps Mr. Lang has. I know I have.
But how many others? I would venture a guess that less than 1% of the population
has raised a finger to dial a number and place their demands with whom
- So, Mr. Lang. I do not object to one
word of your essay. I rather object to that which has been left out. The
people. We are the ones ultimately responsible. And to that end, we've
lost. Big time.
