I tag every American citizen reading this blog to . . .

post the embed to this clip (Thanks, Rain) on their websites and to tag other bloggers to post it, and so on.


Here's the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2Vbe2w18s8&eurl=

Copy and paste the embed link on your Blog, and paste the YouTube link above with it so others can find it and embed it.

Whether you're a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or any other stripe, if you believe in the fundamental freedoms and rights guaranteed under the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, I fail to see how you can argue with what Keith Olbermann says.

This is not a chain letter. I fully agree with what Olbermann says on this, as an American citizen first, a parent a close second, and a journalist a close third.

Fronty:

This is the most honest piece of broadcast journalism -- a full 10 minutes -- that I can ever recall.

You have tagged only Americans, and of course I will honour that.

But if one 10-minute collection of words seems ever so illustrative of the world's biggest problem at the moment, this is it.

I wonder how many Americans have seen this. Is it a local news broadcast? National?

America's actions and Bush's Boobs have affected the entire planet in an unbelievable, history-changing way.

As a Canadian, with a leader who has simply jumped on Bush's lap and mimicked and supported his policies and approach to world affairs, I only offer my support for this brand of journalism and for this message and for Fronty's attempts to spread the word.

WW,

No offense meant to you or any other citizens of other countries, and please do feel free to be tagged. But I really feel that Bush is a problem allowed to exist by American citizens, and that he should be isolated and forbidden by all legal and constitutional means to cause any more trouble for this country.

And for that reason, yep, I believe that we - America's citizenry - are obliged to take responsibility to ensure that the social contract delineated by the Constitution should be restored to its proper conduct.

Go back and read the first sentence onthis post. See how easy it is to assume that every American citizen has their own website? Haha!

This guy should be giving the Democratic response to Bush's next disarray of the Union Speech. He sure as hell said it like it is, without pulling punches!

No offence taken at all, completely understood.

I will consider myself tagged in an ex-officio, NGO kinda honorary capacity. Important point for me was to let me know I support your thoughts and wishes completely.

i know and appreciate that WW. It's just frustrating that, for the last 6 years, I had no editorial input at the papers I worked at as a reporter to say that Bush was an illegitimate abberration of this country's political process.

Now that I've been an editor for the last two and a half years, I've had one idiot reader say I should have had my hands cut off so I'd know how Iraqis suffered under Saddam Hussein. I've had my idiot advertising colleagues cave when confronted by an advertiser who claims I'm being anti-American by pointing out what a gang of intellectual criminals has managed to hijack the American political and governmental process.

I'm not surprised how so many in other 'free world' countries can look at Bush in wonder and criticize him, but it chills me to no end that my own countrymen cannot take the responsibility they have as citizens to question, criticize and demand changes in the very government it gives its government.
Two centuries and almost one century ago, saying that would have earned arrest and trial under the Sedition Act. I wouldn't be surprised if the Sedition Act gains a third life, since so many of my own countrymen in my own community are quite willing to accuse me of being all but a treasonous piece of crap.

I bought the product after my hairdresser used it on my hair once. It was great. The hair stays smooth and frizz-free until your next wash. Don't have to worry about

doing it again the next day. Love it.
