Because freedom can't protect itself
I would like to keep commenting on this website because I am also a detainee of President Bush's detention system set up after 911. My detention prison is actually compliments of Rupert Murdoch and other neocons who provide the administration with the ability to invade the privacy of totally innocent American citizen's homes using tv satellites and cable. The only word to describe this is arrogance. Granted they claim they are fighting a war on terrorism (I have a hard time believing anything they say since this happened to me); but, when they have figured out that you are not a terrorist, shouldn't the spying and harassment stop? Also, what gives them the right to provide the information they obtain through spying to their "allies" in our community. It's really laughable when these "allies" feel they are entitled to the information. In their opinion, it was wrong of us to complain and talk about other people in the privacy of our own home. It was wrong for me to express my opinions on 911 and the war in Iraq in the privacy of my own home. But, the greatest sin in their eyes was that I figured out their neoconservative agenda to merge the American Catholic church with the US Government so that our government can continue with their Imperialistic agenda. However, these same people do not think it is wrong to spy, eavesdrop, and harass innocent people, including innocent children. This is because(and I have written this before), their idea of freedom is their own personal freedom to do whatever they want to whomever they want at the expense of the freedom of others. I'd like to make an additional comment on an article I read today. It says and I quote - Seven correspondents in the Wall Street Journal's China bureau have apparently written a letter to four board members at Dow Jones & Co., urging them to stand fast to their decision not to sell to Rupert Murdoch. Among other things they wrote that Murdoch "has a well-documented history of making editorial decisions in order to advance his business interests in China and, indeed, of sacrificing journalistic integrity to satisfy personal or political aims." All I can say is that the man doesn't even know what journalistic integrity means. Not only does he have the talk show hosts of his network mocking me with personal information they have obtained through eavesdropping while they are reporting the "news" but also he condones giving that information to others. This man's only goal is to further his own neoconservative political agenda at any cost using all means available to him and, considering he owns news outlets throughout the world, his means are unlimited. Believe me, journalistic integrity is the last thing on this man's mind.
