Scoop Feedback - Not the Patrick Ryan

Scoop welcomes your feedback. Please click here to send your views to the Scoop editors.

I just want all my friends in New Zealand and elsewhere to know that I am not the Patrick Ryan who wrote the hate-filled, mis-spelled diatribe about anti-war protestors.

I currently live in the US and the sad thing is a lot of Americans think this way because they are so incredibly ignorant about anything that takes place outside their own borders (and within them for that matter). They absorb all the bullshit on Fox News and truly believe that America is doing the right thing (and always does the right thing).

Fortunately there are millions of Americans who don't think this way and hopefully George Dubya and his kennel of lapdogs (or is it the other way round?) will get their's at the next election (if any of it is fair).

You'd think that a man who "won" the Presidential election on 535 votes in Florida ... on the back of 35,000 voters wrongfully disenfranchised by brother Jeb and that disgusting Katherine Harris would have a little more humility.

Sadly, the same press who went wild over Clinton's affair with an intern has no apparent interest in the way democracy was stolen by this intellectual dwarf and his rabid controllers. Most of the press here in North America should be prosecuted for lying to the public on a regular basis and perpetuating (perpetrating?) an enormous fraud. As for the Democrats ... the way they rolled over and asked for their bellies to be scratched was revolting. Michael Moore had it right ... it's all artificial.

I think America is doomed unless the people wake up soon.
