URL Round Up

There's a great new Tennessee blogger: William Burton. He's East Tennessee, but we won't hold that against him, especially not a writer as good as this. His An American's Statement to the World is making the rounds of the Internet, for good reason. I'll be adding him to my links list ASAP. My thanks to South Knox Bubba for bringing him to my attention.

The stupidity and bias of some reporters (Oh, OK, most of 'em.) is a wonder to behold sometimes. This guy weepingly reports on someone who purportedly was "disenfranchised." Well, read the damn story and you'll see that the guy was inconvenienced at best. This isn't journalism, but advocacy writing by someone who doesn't have a clue. You want disenfranchisement? Try South America or Africa or Southeast Asia. Speak up against the government and you're jailed, tortured and killed. Vote wrong and you're maimed or killed. Run against the government and you're "disappeared" until your butchered body is found. This clown was just lazy. He should be ashamed, but sadly, in today's America he probably hasn't a clue either. And he can vote.

Until next time.
