President Obama went to the UN this week and delivered a speech that stressed the point that Muslim countries should use the "freedom of speech" principle to ignore a film that they say is offensive to their religion. Would he be just as tolerant of the freedom of speech principle if some Muslim clerics arrived in the United States and preached that NFL team owners should be permitted to have multiple wives harem style?
Is Religious freedom available to the Native Americans who
believe that peyote should be used in some of their religious ceremonies?
Are any young Americans becoming enthusiastic about reforming the Lincoln Brigade and going to Spain to help the miners fight against the miserly mine owners?
Is there any talk about forming a new Lincoln Brigade and
sending the boys to Syria
to do for Syrians what Ernst Hemingway et al did for the Spanish people in the
During the last week of September of 2012, Rush Limbaugh in a casual toss away line unveiled the concept of "media fraud." It was his contention (has he been sipping the Coolade seved in the employee mess at the Amalgamated Conspiracy Theory Factory?) that all the polls predicting that President Obama will steamroll over Mitt Romney in the November Election are part of a concerted, coordinated premeditated effort to cast doubt on the "upset" victory news for conservatives who "know" Mitt will get the most votes on the electronic voting machines.
Wouldn't any political party that plans to use covert
methods of election cheating be wise to launch a preemptive strike aimed at
media credibility as a way of discrediting any subsequent voting results that
defy logic? If the electronic voting
machines are going to be manipulated to deliver an "upset" victory to Mitt
Romney wouldn't it be wise to start criticizing the media's credibility now?
Isn't the leftist media always goading the hoipolloi into selecting Barabbas?
Did Barabbas have a horse that could participate in a
dressage competition or did he just ride a fast quarter horse (for quick
getaways?)? Is there really a place
called "Rose's Cantina" in El Paso? Do you know where the only foreign military
base inside the United
State is located? Shouldn't every American military base be
named "Fort Bliss"? Speaking of the Museum for the U. S. Cavalry, isn't it remarkable
that Errol Flynn did such a good job of portraying General George A.
Speaking of a massacre, can't Karl Rove invoke the Whitlam rule and replace Mitt Romney on the Republican ticket before he makes political history similar to that achieved by Alf Landon and George McGovern?
Ahhh, but won't the concept of "Media Fraud" (essentially)
lay the foundation for a counter-conspiracy propaganda blitzkrieg
substantiating a Mitt win (via the electronic voting machines with no
verifiable results) that contradicts all expectations? So it is that the results of the November
election have already been rendered irrefutable and thus irrelevant. (Whatever!)
The People who expect honest results from the team that gave George W. Bush two disputed "Touchdown!" calls haven't been paying attention. Do they skim read the Gospel of St. Ayn Rand?
The party that wins the White House in November will proudly
proclaim that Democracy is alive and well in the USA. The party that loses will hold a press
conference on the campus of the Amalgamated Conspiracy Theory Factory and label
the election a fraud and a farce.
In "The Fountainhead" St. Ayn Rand wrote: "Don't bother to examine a folly -- ask yourself only what it accomplishes. . . . You don't have to be too clear about it. Use big words. . . . The farce has been going on for centuries and men still fall for it."
Now the disk jockey will play Andy William's "Hawaiian Wedding Song," the tearjerker classic about football, "The blind man in the bleachers," and AC/DC's song "Walk all over you." We have to go look for a good photo for next week's column. Have a "Mr. Gotti says: "Get in the fuckin' car!'" type week.
