IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-----
“We the People”"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Every so often I will print a response to one of my articles or “letters to the editor” of the newspapers I write to, and then my rebuttal. They are interesting and sometimes even funny. In this case it is my home state of Rhode Island and the Providence Journal. I simply can’t respond to all of them, but some just beg to be educated. Read on: (Last names omitted)

The tone and content of recent letters by Fred Comella suggest he has a vendetta against President Obama. He whines about about a whole litany of tribulations that include our financial woes and our soldiers fighting and dying. It wasn’t President Obama who started two illegal wars based on lies that will carry a price tag of over $1 trillion before they are finished, besides the tragic loss of life and suffering resulting from these conflicts.
It wasn’t President Obama who gave a $700 billion tax break that mostly helped the top 1 percent. These events along with others sent our economy into a free fall. I wonder if the name George W. Bush rings a bell with Mr. Comella? President Obama did accomplish what Bush couldn’t: the extermination of Osama Bin Laden, who must have been Comella’s worst nightmare.
Comella seems to exist in a state of constant terror. With Bin Laden gone, his imagination appears to conjure other demons to dread.
Now while I have been told that contributors letters to the Providence Journal should not attack the author but rather the content of his/her writing, it seems the Journal has made an exception in my case. Nonetheless, they have always been fair with me and printed many of my letters so I bear no ill will.
Regarding the content of Anthony’s letter, let me respond in kind and for the record. George W. bush enforced UN Resolution 1441, and subsequent resolutions with majority support of the Security Council and the U.S. Congress. Additionally, the Afghan War was initiated to seek out and destroy the forces which launched the attacks of 9/11. Once again facts are cast aside and replaced with (Bush hatred) and Left wing Rhetoric. Moreover, for all the Lefty vitriol concerning President Bush’s intelligence, he must have been pretty damn smart to fool all those Democrats of superior intellect in Congress. And I won’t even begin to address how many of those “lies” are now being vetted and proved correct. Frankly, the notion that our brave men and women have died in vain, as it seems Anthony is suggesting, is outrageous. I would add here that Seal Team 6 killed bin-Laden after receiving the “proceed” order from President Obama, and as initiated by yes, President Bush.
And would those tax breaks Anthony mentions be the ones President Obama has signed off on yet again this past year?
I am not asking that The Projo print this as simply a rebuttal, but rather in the vein which they have done so in the past, that of fairness. This is America and we are all entitled to our opinions, hence the Op-Ed page. And while I’m certainly not frazzled by the volume of email I receive, some of which can be “very negative”, sometimes the discussion begs both sides. I do not live in a “constant state of terror” Anthony, but I do fear my son’s America will look very different if this President’s policies are allowed to take root unchecked by our Republic, that’s all…
I think that when you have a media outlet claiming to be a journalistic watchdog but receiving monetary assistance from the likes of George Soros and other far Left radicals, there are understandably questions. And when you throw in the fact that this media outlet enjoys tax exempt status claiming to be an “educational entity”, there are more questions. And when that outlet circulates internal memos highlighting how its members should search out and destroy the characters of members of a another particular media outlet which they see as having “opposing views”, there are even more questions. And finally, when that media outlet is in bed with a branch of the federal government in the way that “Media Matters” is in bed with the White House these days, one has to ask what the hell is happening to journalism in America? Are certain agencies now simply mouth pieces for the government? It does not take a history major to see what’s coming with another four years of the Obama Administration.
It is ironic though, that when we Conservatives bring attention to the important issues of the day and question this Administration’s policies regarding those issues, we are labeled as hate mongers, obstructionists and partisans with a “vendetta”. And yet when the Left wing attempts to blame the fall of Rome on George W. Bush while simultaneously attacking the personal lives of those who would challenge the so-called “main stream media” version of things, they are hailed for their journalistic prowess by the Arianna Huffington’s of the world.
Every day it becomes more apparent that this election will be about much more than just the economy. Rhetoric rules the day and cold hard facts are ignored for the sake so-called bi-partisanship. You can be sure there is nothing bi-partisan about anything going on in Washington. Things are changing right before our very eyes and there are some who are content watch our founding principles slip away, and others still who wish to hasten America’s decline…
