I don't suppose this column will be getting you a job at The Washington Post. How refreshing to read such a candid portrayal of the boy king and his ongoing destruction of the Constitution, and Planet Earth. Zell Miller won't be happy with Creative Loafing.

I feel so assured that "progressive" (aka left-wing liberal) thinkers such as yourself are now protecting the documents that define us as a nation. It seems just like yesterday that another left winger by the name of Al Gore was explaining to the nation that the Constitution is a living document subject to changes in interpretation as the nation matures, or as liberal programs require. Conservatives in the past were the ones who quoted the country's founders. Hell, the very nature of conservatism is the rejection of ideas that stray from the original intent of the Constitution.
It does my heart good to see someone as obviously distant from the ideals of a free America as you are, rabidly defending the freedoms that Americans are naturally born to. I actually get a nice chuckle from the reversal of position. Although, I suspect that it is a temporary position as long as it is necessary to use to disagree with everything President Bush stands behind and represents. It also indicates that George the Tyrant (your name, not mine) is actually doing a pretty good job. The measure of success is the viciousness by which you "progressives" attack. Beautiful!

How incredibly articulate. I think I love you -- in a manly, tree-hugging kinda way. Is that wrong?

Outstanding commentary ("Declaration of Independence"). This unelected fool has convinced himself that he was "chosen" for this job by both God and the people. We couldn't have appointed a much worse person than the spoiled little rich kid.

"Wow -- it's so good to read words that I know I WANT to say, but just didn't know HOW to say them.
There are so many people out here who feel this way.
So, thanks, John.
You're a brave and wise soul.

Let me just say your article about our new dictator is absolutely wonderful and amazingly written! If only people would pull their heads out of their asses (or his) and read things like this, or heaven forbid do their own research, maybe we would not be headed down the nightmarish road that we are. Thank you for having the courage, intelligence and wit to write such a great article, even in the face of being prosecuted as a terrorist in this "new America." And please know there are so many of us out here that do agree and worry with you about the fate of our country and the futures of our children.

I have read Creative Loafing for years, yet until you started writing for CL, I never felt the urge to say something. You are a shining light. All of the "Patriot Games" articles (especially what you wrote), were so on the money. I wish that everyone in America could read your words. Maybe the truth would set them free.

It takes courage to call our corrupt fascist figurehead what he is -- the murdering tool of the fossil-fuel elite -- but I, for one, am glad you did. Your article may begin to blow the dust off the eyes of a populace distracted with media manufactured terrorist threats. A "besieged" mentality sells newspapers and keeps the peoples' eyes off the sweetheart deals being cut in the smoke-filled rooms. Journalism of this nature is patriotism at its best, and asserting the right of the governed to overthrow the evil-minded despots who lie, steal and imprison us for have the intellect to dissent is the first step in taking back this nation.

I see you still can't get a job at a real newspaper, huh fucko?
