It’S Obvious; Not Libel



I have been addressed in print in the Roundup over the past few years as a Marxist thug, a communist, a Nazi, a hippie, a socialist, just to name a few. I have been accused of being loyal to Soviet Russia, Red Communist China and North Korea by those who rail to me about their right to free speech.

This despite the fact that I have publicly stated in print, in the Roundup, that I served in the U.S. Army from September 1966 through July 1970; including volunteering to go to Vietnam and spending two tours there ... and yes, I was honorably discharged with the rank of sergeant.

Our president has been called much worse, in print in the Roundup. He has been accused of the same lies directed at me plus a lot more. He has been called everything but a white man ... pun intended. Most all of these statements directed at President Obama fall under the heading of libel.

Two weeks ago I submitted a tongue-in-cheek note that was published in the Roundup, stating the truth as most reasonable people see it: there will not be a Republican in the White House for at least 11 years — and I am accused of libel in the Roundup.

Furthermore, it is common knowledge, especially among credible news pundits — not Rush, not O’Reilly, not the bimbos on Fox, who wear the tight skirts hiked up to their ... — that Michele Bachmann spouts outrageous lies and that Sarah Palin was so far out that a movie was made about her campaign antics, yet I am vilified for stating the obvious.

I wish to offer my thanks to Ted Paulk for his service to his country 1966-1970, for his two tours in Viet Nam, and to remind him that for accusations of being a Marxist thug, a communist, a Nazi, a hippie, or a socialist to be “libel,” the accusations have to be false.

Based on the ideology expressed by Mr. Paulk over the past few years, and the actions and expressed intentions of the man illegally infesting the White House since he managed to usurp that office, the accusations are demonstrably accurate – and I am not the only one to say so: Members of the President’s own party have said so, and Progressives who willingly admit to Marxism and/or its precursor, Socialism, have provided both men with fervent support.

If you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen!

First of all...I do not understand why your letter was printed at all. It has no point except your whining. You call your last letter to the editor a ton-gue-cheek note....It was not. It was an attempt to stir up bad feelings between both parties. I haven't seen any liabilous comments. You accuse other people of lies....back it up.

Mr. Paulk; The personal credentials presented in your letter are not necessary and are of little value. Because you served in the Vietnam era, as did I, does not preclude you being of whatever political persuasion that you wish. You may well be a Marxist or whatever. So ? One thing that I have not seen in labeling you is one that I will add : you appear to be an attention-seeking dolt. It's not libel; It's my opinion.
