As an American I Apologize to the entire world for the Cheap, Common, Lying, Fool who has pilfered and retained through trickery and LIES, the title of president of the USA.

I never thought I would say that I am ashamed of my country....but I say it now with Defiance, Anguish, and the most intense Indignation born of shame.

I am ashamed of the system of "education" which discharges blank slates of indoctrination and obedience and arrogance into the world, making it a worse place for normal human beings.

I am ashamed of the tens of thousands of goons who scream "USA, USA, USA" at the buffoon's vulgar rallies....screams that speak not to love of their country so much as HATE for all the others.

I am ashamed of "statesmen" who ate "Freedom Fries" instead of French Fries.

I am appalled and ashamed of the embarrassing Low-Brow, Right-Wing, openly Vicious ,and Utterly misleading commercial talk-radio of limbaugh, hannity and many, many local variants of the slime-fest all over America trying to steal a quick buck by lying for the interests of big business uber alles !

I am ashamed of a "culture" that fears and loathes learning as much as it celebrates ignorance, crudeness, and vulgarity.

I hope all English speaking people around the globe will eavesdrop on American commercial "talk radio"and hear with their own ears in order to fully understand what American media have come to.

The world needs to know how mercilessly and thoroughly milllions upon millions of Americans are propagandized and indoctrinated every minute of every day by the Goon Squad of corporate radio Bunko men.

Britain, and the rest of the world need to hear just how dangerous are the malicious smears and lies told to Americans by low-brow, rightist "talk radio" creeps with little knowledge of American history and culture, let alone World history and cultures.

For their own good and their very lives, the people of the planet need to comprehend how relentless is the routine of coarse, ignorant, drivel with which benighted Americans are deluged minute by minute.

I urge the English speaking people of the world people to actually LISTEN in to the low-brow, rightist commercial radio which poisoned America like a Tsunami of Polonium; turning our once proud land mean and dumb and ugly beyond recognition.

I am asking people around the world to listen to this filth and to warn their countrymen and women about it.

This "radio" of which I speak is THE reason why many in America yet defend what is palpably Indefensible to the entire civilized world.

America needs to be shamed by the spectacle of the normal people of the world hearing the ignorant and hideous jingoism and militaristic agitation that is routinely accepted as "commentary" on its cheapened and low-brow media and by what it has become as a consequence.

For the health and very life of America and everyone in the world, there finally needs to be some standard of Truth, Ethics, and Civility asserted on our media.
