All these criminals who have seated themselves in the Oval Office, by devious and criminal actions, against the will of the people, all must be impeached, all must be incarcerated where they can do no more harm. And it must be done now. In the interest of justice to the injured we must also take back the wealth these criminals have stolen from us and from the world, for only with it can we hope to save the globe and repair its ability to host life. These are hardened criminals of the worst type. People who torture the helpless and the innocent are filth.

As a journalist, it was my job, and the duty of all journalists, to inform the people, to tell them the truth, all of the truth, and nothing but the truth. Shame to those who did and still do otherwise.

Each and all of us who took the creed and the way of the pen and plow, rather than that of the sword, we all know that only fully informed citizens who are reaching toward a democratic government can hope to achieve such governance of, by and for the people with the information we glean and deliver. We are responsible for the damage done.

Shame on the media that have, become as corrupt as the corporations to whom they toady, that have become a tool to corporate evil and corporate greed and by this shameful exhibition have criminalized the profession meant to rank as the highest and most honorable and that should exist as a tool of justice.

Shame on the media that have shamed all of us. We the world's writers, know that we are in a large proportion responsible for this world at war against the innocent, for the millions of horribly injured who will never walk again, see again or breath without pain again, for the thirsty and the hungry-shame on you.
