rabid and irresponsible corner of the republican party


I've never heard of Keith Olbermann from MSNBC before, but man, I'm impressed. This is the most searing "j'accuse" of the bush white house that I've ever seen. The video is ten minutes long, but it is totally worth it. At least hang on to around the 5:00 minute mark when Olbermann starts his "I accuse you of..." speech.

Wow is right. That is a pretty intense little bit of footage, thanks for sharing it.

I personally am against government, as we know it today. There are two fundamental laws that govern the world. If either of these two are broken, chaos, greed, anarchy ensue. I've yet to hear a a logical argument against these laws. If you think about them, you can hold them up to any situation, and Justice will prevail if these laws are followed. That's quite an intro to such simple rules. Without further a due, here they are:

1: Do all you have agreed to do.
2: Do not encroach on others or their property.

Government, breaks the second. Think about this, if everyone on earth respected and obeyed those laws, there would be no need for government. Government is a man-made entity, and decidedly corrupt and, dare I say, Evil.

My great, great, great, great with several more greats in there, grandfather was William Bradford, the spiritual leader of the Mayflower, and the American people when they first arrived in what is now the United States of America. If you look at what those people said, and did, and what America is today, you would be absolutely amazed at how far apart they are. Even in research of early America, it is hard to find the truth. Good luck finding those original manuscripts that have not been water down so as to make them less offensive and more "politically correct". Some would say that they are, oh no, religious! Heaven forbid.

Anyway, I guess that it makes me sad to see this going on, and what America is today, when comparing it to its roots. America was founded on freedom for all. Even American society is against that. I believe in freedom of religion, speech and thought. I allow freedom to everyone for all of those. Yet, I am often labeled a bigot, redneck, intolerant for some of my views. How can that be? If you make a law that does not allow me to act on what I believe, or if society in general is against it, and takes action to make me stop, that again violates law #2. If the argument came up that what I was doing was harming others, I would be breaking rule #2. These two laws in conjunction with each other are incredibly powerful.

For rule number one: if a county elects a leader, to be a representative of the best interests of the people, and lies, or pursues his or her own interested ahead of the people that he has agreed to lead, he or she has broken rule #1.

Very simple, very deep, very controversial.

Just a thought and a long comment.

Olbermann is the man. One of the few not afraid to tell it like it is.
