Over 800 prisons are ready to receive those Americans who are subversive, who are dissidents, who would defend the U.S. Constitution. “Lock ‘em up an’ throw away the key!” say the republicans. It’s a cinch the republicans will be more inspired and efficient at imprisoning Americans then they were at saving them from Hurricane Katrina. Bill O’Reilly is the quintessential republican. He doesn’t want to entertain any notions of disparate thought, meaning any thought at all that isn’t in march step with his own, or more accurately Rupert Murdoch’s “Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!” philosophy. Bill screams, bug eyed, while the monster which is his insanity, and his vanity, perches casually, while smiling sardonically, from his shoulder. When his “guest” is banished, and Bill collects himself to comment, his plaintive note begs forgiveness for his hatred, his intolerance, the foul intent he routinely exhibits to an audience as vacant, and as assuredly disconnected from truth, as himself.

Rupert Murdoch is a foreign national who, as the owner of Fox News, and Bill, has contributed enormously to the ignorance of many Americans. Just as Sarah Palin incites her audiences to hate, Murdoch, with far greater frequency, encourages his viewers to despise liberals broadly, and any subgroup of liberal belief or substance whom Murdoch may falsely include. He is a despicable old man, an empty being who only exists to rake his take over onto his side. His time has elapsed as a purveyor of tabloid journalism, but poor Rupert is condemned to repetition. His understanding of the World is confined to how much he can take from it. Poverty has cursed the poor bastard, and he hasn’t the intellect to know it.

To understand exactly how disgusting a greed monger he is, one must realize that Murdoch‘s beliefs are not with one party or another. He sees the opportunity to assassinate one parties character for monetary gain and acts upon it. The fact that his deceit has influenced U.S. policy does not concern him. Only his fat bottom line enters his regard while he, a foreign national who won U.S. citizenship for no other reason than it was required from a business perspective, contributes daily to the undoing of U.S. concerns. The man needs to be deported, persona non grata, and his ill begotten gains seized. He is unwelcome here, as evidenced by his various, right wing media outlets, that a broad spectrum of Americans abhor.

If, by some circumstance a populace is inspired, as America’s revolutionaries and the Founder’s of the Constitution once were, an army will rise up and crush the ones who would enslave them. The U.S. Constitution was very intelligently constructed to thwart histories repetitious oppression of ordinary people who want nothing more than to be left in peace, to live their lives as well as they know how, and to overcome obstacles on their own terms. But freedom comes with a steep price. Constant vigilance is required to keep the George Bush’s, and the Rupert Murdoch’s, at bay.

Murdoch is a foreign national and by all intent is practicing terrorism in the United States. The U.S. is better than that. O’Reilly, apoplectic with rage as he threatens to throw his guests from the set, is hardly a newscast, or a helpful contribution to the nation’s political dialogue. He’s cheap theater at best, and the fact that’s he’s somehow been elevated to a credible source that reflects public opinion is testament to how far the nation’s expectations have sunk. Murdoch has been the instrument driving those low expectations. First Amendments Rights were not meant for the likes of Murdoch to corrupt public thinking.

Shouting “fire” in a crowed theatre is Murdoch’s pathway to profit. Rupert uses the First Amendment to benefit himself to America’s detriment. He’s the lowest form of parasite - one that feeds from the fear, the suspicions, the paranoiac anxieties that exist in every human being and can be coaxed forth by such evil as Murdoch, and he is evil. The man deliberately misleads a nation of naïve people to increase his personal wealth. The cheap, conniving bastard. A simple test. If Fox is incapable of surviving a fact checking assessment, by an independent party, for the truthfulness of its broadcasts, then it must be unceremoniously booted from the air. How about it Rupert? As a nationalized American can you accept such a simple challenge? Can’t you? No? Of course not. Fox is far too profitable to expose to honest, public scrutiny.

So now what? President Barrack Obama is a good man. His first act as president should be asking for the resignations of those justices on the Supreme Court who voted to appoint the foolish Bush. Immediately afterwards, he needs to restore American’s Constitutional Rights. Next, the way that campaigns are financed must be from public dollars with absolutely no input from the “K” Street lobbyists who should be tarred and feathered and run out of town. The Fairness Doctrine must be restored. The public owns the airwaves. They are not intended as the property of a nationalized citizen such as Rupert Murdoch to air his stupidity and disloyalty to America over his Fox News Channel. Right wing radio and television hosts are terrified that the “Fairness Doctrine” will be restored after Reagan did away with it. What is it they’re so afraid of? The short, and brutally honest answer is, Limbaugh, O’Reilly, Coulter, don’t have the slightest chance of prevailing in a debate, a discussion, or an argument regarding current political events. They simply lack the intellect to carry them through the most remedial functions of intelligent debate. They depend on the fact that no one will question their ridiculous claims. They owe their “success” if one may refer to it as that, to the absence of the rejoinder, the rebuttal, the alternative view. They are leeches, who exploit the lowest common denominator of public gullibility and ignorance, to awake a resentment, an anger, that will sell their word and realize profit from deceit.

Commonality of purpose is the devotion of all citizens to maintain the peace and freedom that is endemic to the here and now, and binds each citizen to one another in mutually declared loyalties. There must be freedom, and even the two extremes of Good and Evil recognize this, even though democracy often seems to dilute the truth, and accept evil. This is the fundamental conflict between conservative thought, and progressive belief. Free choice is left to humanity, as it has always been. Temptation is certainly present, but Good and Evil avoid conflict, neither desirous of visiting Armageddon upon the World. That will be humanities choice, and certainly Evil will celebrate its victory over men. But a victory of sorts will also belong to Good, as men are allowed their freedom to choose, even unto their eradication from existence.
