I used to be afraid of the dark. Then I realized that the feeling was mutual.
I really canít take this anymore. This is Monday, August 30. Iíve listened all day to every talk show host talk about the Glenn Beck religion rally. Yet to this day none of these blowhards will mention the major travesty committed against Michael Savage by Britain. [Notice I didnít use the term Great Britain]
With the two year abomination of Savage being banned from entering Britain, a complete affront to free speech, these multi-millionaire talk show hosts canít even mention this. Hypocrisy is amusing only to a point. But then it borders on propagandizing the American public, which is illegal.
This is because they are bought and sold by the Republican Party. They claim to be merely Conservatives, but they are nothing more than whores for the GOP.
The mere fact that those who pretend to uphold the Constitution are, by childish high school behavior, unwilling to even speak about an atrocity committed against one of their own makes me physically ill.
Itís like the Stepford Wives. But fat.
I am very truly ashamed of so-called Conservative talk radio. And thereís not a day that goes by when I donít thank God I registered ďNo PartyĒ.
In closing, let me mention one thing: When I was interviewed on the Savage Nation I was asked what people can do to change whatís happening to this country. I was at a loss. But after long consideration, I arrived at the conclusion that if people really want change they have to vote locally and keep on top of their representatives. If you think for one minute you have any influence on a Presidential election, you need your head examined. Itís all a lie. Do you think for one moment that people who gain power are going to give it up to the unwashed every 4 years?
Forget it. Love yourself, your family, your neighborhood and your city or town.
Some used to say that the only certainties in life are death and taxes. Cute. But the truth is this: If youíre for sale, youíre a whore. If you want to gain power in this world, you have no conscience. If you are both, youíre either in the White House or Congress.
