Thomas L. Friedman off the rails

We at Tea512 take being American seriously; we love the freedom and the ideals of this country. There are times you hear things that make you scratch your head. Then there are other times, you want to kick a hole in the TV screen. Last night on the Glenn Beck Show, he had on Thomas L. Friedman as a guest. Friedman was on shilling his new book Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution–and How It Can Renew America. He is an opinion writer for the New York Times. His theory is that this countries government is too big to get anything done. He wishes we could be like China for a while, as it would be easier to get thing accomplished. Can you be anymore of shithead! China, did he actually use a communist country as a way to get things done? You must be kidding, if this was China even for a day, we would not be able to write this, and even if we posted to the Internet, nobody would be able to read it. Then let us look at Friedman’s life, he would not be able to write things in the NYT and hide behind freedom of speech. He would not have been able to be a reporter from foreign lands giving the real scoop on the effort, only saying what the government wanted him to say. He would not be working for one of the biggest and most recognized media conglomerates in the world, he would be working for a state agency. This is so insane on every level. The country may be two big to get everyone to agree on a correct course of action, but that is because everyone’s voice is heard. In China, it is one-person rule by party (Communist) but there is no will of the people. This is what makes America great and why people still flock her looking for freedom. It is why when they found Saddam Hussein in a nine-foot square hole in the middle of 167,400 square miles; he had a suitcase with American currency, Benjamin Franklins. Thomas L. Friedman was born in Minnesota he went to Brandeis University, received a B.A. degree in Mediterranean studies then a Master of Philosophy degree in Modern Middle East studies from Oxford. We believe without any apprehension, Mr. Friedman there is no way any American problem can or should be solved by being China for a day.

BUT THE TREMOR TORE MY PAD APART
