SCOTUS: Innocence is No Excuse. Thou Shalt Kill!

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

A Letter by me at Salon.com

SCOTUS: Innocence is No Excuse. Thou Shalt Kill!

“In States across the country only pro-death jurors are allowed to sit on a capital case.

“As both the Innocence Project and Amnesty International have pointed out, wrongful convictions are commonplace.

“Only turkeys and the politically connected get pardoned.

“The injustice system in the United States functions on fabricated and falsified evidence, coerced testimony, exclusion of exculpatory evidence, over-charging, and plea bargains. The U.S. has a higher proportion of its population in jail than any other country in the world, and that’s not because it’s citizens are more criminal.

“The public has been brainwashed by TV shows like “Criminal Minds”, where the presumption of guilt is always correct.

“What better way to let the world know that we have become the Fourth Reich than by executing the innocent?

“The Supreme Court has effectively ruled that innocence is not a defense and endorsed murders by the States.”

Fox Censors Alec Baldwin’s Phone-hacking Joke out of Emmys

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

As reported by Mary Elizabeth Williams in a Salon.com article titled Can’t Rupert Murdoch take a joke?”“As part of a pretaped satirical bit that was to air during the opening of the show, Emmy-winner Alec Baldwin played a fictional network president talking on the phone - - and worked in a zinger about Rupert Murdoch listening in.” Baldwin had tweeted “Fox did kill my NewsCorp hacking joke. Which sucks bc I think it would have made them look better. A little.”

In a Letter responding to that article I wrote:

Fox IS a Joke and Murdoch is Evil

“Alec Baldwin’s joke was funny, timely, and fit in with the roles he plays. The censorship was inexcusable but understandable given that the phone hacking most likely was done by Murdoch et al on a much larger scale than has been disclosed so far.

“When Murdoch took over the Wall Street Journal and Barrons I stopped reading them because I’m not into fiction. That’s also why I don’t watch Fox “News”.

“More important than the question of Murdoch not being able to take a joke is the question of what evil deeds he’s planned and been perpetrating in furtherance of a unitary Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” owned and directed by himself.

“How sad that his henchmen would reach down to squelch even light hearted jokes. Alec was right. Now Fox and NewsCorp look even worse.”
