The 1st Amendment and the Free Press

“There’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason it will never, ever,  EVER be fixed.It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it. Be happy with what you’ve got.Because the owners, the owners of this country, don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the BIG owners! The Wealthy… the REAL owners! The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions.

Forget the politicians. They are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought—and paid for—the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want.  Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want:

They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that! You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shitty jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street—and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later ‘cause they own this fucking place! It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it! You, and I, are not in the big club.

By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care! Good honest hard-working people; white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue—these are people of modest means—continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don’t give a fuck about you….they don’t give a fuck about you… they don’t give a FUCK about you.

They don’t care about you at all… at all… AT ALL.  And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth.

It’s called the American Dream—because you have to be asleep to believe it.

— George Carlin

Okay, so it’s a George Carlin rant. But, even for those of you who despised Donald Trump, he made a few relevant points. Some had to do with the minimal time under the statute of limitations to sue for certain offenses, like defamation, false reporting, and outright character assassination in the media. For those of us who bought the Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Expression aspect of life in these here United States, it was Jefferson who knocked down Adams when he was about to get the Alien and Sedition Act passed that prompted his actions.

For those of you who wisely stay away from opening your mouth, attending demonstrations, and writing about politics — all of which I did and caught 4 years from a corrupt Hamptons D.A. prompted by the Town of Southampton and that beacon of honest reporting, the Southampton Press, for it — the time may be coming where that may not be possible. Of course, fascism is always an option. Unless you start ponying up to bring your elevated blood pressure into the courts if you still believe they’re honest. But, word to the wise, stay away from Suffolk County. It was the Feds who got D.A. Spota, not the State Supreme Courts. Take it from me I know what I’m talking about. That game was carefully controlled by Spota (now in prison for operating a criminal enterprise out of his District Attorney’s Office) and his pals like Frank McKay of the Independence Party. Nothing has changed. And, with a $9,000 dollars a month pension which he collects while in prison and $17 million in cash awaiting Spota’s release, a Club Fed might be just the time he needs to plan his next moves. No fences, tennis, a pool, and great food.

I just published “Up & Away,” the first of several books coming this year. Soon to be available to those who’d like to experience four plus years behind bars without the financial and emotional devastation. And, I can always sit and read about myself on the internet compliments of a hit piece ordered by John Sutter and written by Lincoln Anderson — still available more than ten years after the fact on The Villager, now available through Schneps Media who bought them out. They claim to be a “Community publication” which looks suspiciously like a company who figured out how to collect an ever-expanding wellspring of advertisers as if it were a Ponzi scheme that keeps acquiring new money-losing newspapers to maintain its existence. And, theres no limit on how long a company can publish articles on the internet if you don’t file a lawsuit within one year for defamation. Cute.

Stay Tuned.

  1. You were the Steven Donziger of corrupt politics long before his current problems. Your story is chilling and should be at least as well known as Donziger’s plight. I look forward to reading your new book.

    • They’ll be a few of them. First will be the story of my four year stay in prison. Second will be the story of
      how and why it happened. Obviously, the AUSA’s were reading my articles and blogs. Spota is now in prison.
      I’d never heard of Donziger. I helped get Tankleff out and then I took his place for going after the Town of Southampton, their racism, and corruption.
