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.
