From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I refuse to pay the salary of ANY journalist through taxation! Either the company which hires them pays their salaries from corporate profits, or they are out on the street like so many hundreds of thousands of Americans without jobs due to the follies, caprices, spending sprees, and out-right unconstitutional actions of the Obama administration. I will not fund the liberal media!!! Their lackluster attempts to emulate the success of conservative talk radio and television failed simply because people were refusing to listen to their message! They failed due to lack of public interest and now they want to tax those of us who cannot abide them so we can be subjected to even more of their inanities? I don't think so! Their anti-constitutional attempts to turn this country into a third world Banana republic with Obama as dictator is sufficient enough cause for the FTC to end this charade immediately. I would more cheerfully ingest Hemlock rather than have to be taxed to pay for their drivel! Keep Americorps out of this issue entirely. It serves no just or legal purpose to have them involved! It's bad enough on Americans that nameless bureaucrats (many of them ideologues), write the actual laws enacted by Congress. (Meanings and intents change by the simple insertion of the word "shall" instead of "may"). It would be criminal to allow Americorps, and a highly suspect taxing process to further control and erode our God-given (Not government-granted), rights to protection from the tyranny of our own government. Obama is an egotistical megalomaniac who represents interests that are antithetical in every respect to the rules of law which have governed this country since its' inception. Do not further control my ability to seek those truths which have great value to me simply because there's a liberal out there somewhere whining that he is not being listened to by the masses! I think we've all had enough of their dogma to last several lifetimes. Do not force me to have to pay through taxation for something I do not want.
