hype vs. facts
19 October 2004 - Orange County Register
Corinna Hensonís vitriol-laden
monologue against President Bush is a perfect example of what
an uninformed public will swallow when it relies on media hype rather
than bothering to educate themselves on the facts.
donít "send our jobs overseas", businesses do, when they encounter
increasingly more onerous and needless government regulation - regulation
Bush is trying to roll back so fewer jobs are lost in the future.
canít legally possess automatic weapons - itís ridiculous to think
Bush "allows" it. Automatic weapons have been banned from being
owned even by law-abiding citizens since 1934, and neither the so-called
"assault weapons ban" nor its sunset changed that in the slightest.
could be right, however, in questioning the reasons for the Iraq
war and the hostile-to-liberty PATRIOT Act. Itís too bad for advocates
of freedom that both major party presidential candidates strongly
support both our imperialistic foreign policy and the PATRIOT Act.
