I wonder

April 20, 2010

I wonder if braawak ever considers the Bill of Rights before he opens his stammering mouth. I ponder this thought often. Hell, I wonder if he knows the difference between the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. His apparent ignorance knows no bounds.

I was thinking about the Bill Of Rights today, specifically “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Even for a simple person that never spoke the King’s English, this is pretty simple stuff. Lets talk about the press part. If you were to be allowed, no, granted, unfettered access to the President on the condition, explicit or understood, that you would only ‘report’ in a positive light, then you are NOT part of the ‘Press’. You are a scribe, a White House staff member. If you claim ‘press’ status in these circumstances, you are actively subjugating the Spirit and the Letter of the Constitution.

Conversely, if you were the President and spent a lot of time attacking a portion of the Press, then you too, fail to understand the Constitution. You too are subverting its intent and spirit. Power attempting to silence the voice of the Republic.  What if access was granted only to ‘friendlies’ and never to ‘hostiles’? Suppose a particular Press Agency groveled before the anointed one in order to get inside stories so they could continue to sell the yellow sheets. This just may be something along the lines of sedition. It is certainly selling out America.
