At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.
The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"
"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."
IN DEFENSE OF MINORITIES!

Old White Men
Change the demographic a tiny bit and ask yourself what they would have said of 500,000 black people. Would the mainstream media have said that they didn't matter because they were black?
And this is my point: There is nothing wrong with being white. There is nothing shameful about being white. There is nothing wrong with assembling with other people from diverse states and locations who also happen to be predominantly white. However, there is a mood in the United States that there is. The Tea Party Movement is made up - at least 65% - of women. It's not a 'woman's movement', but if you go to a Tea Party gathering, you'll find that mothers and grandmothers constitute a majority.
Is MOTHER a dirty word? Everyone alive has one, even homosexuals. However if you're a mother with kids, who works and struggles with all of the things that women deal with -- and admire Sarah Palin for doing the same, you're labeled by the mainstream media as a nazi, hatemonger. When did Sarah Palin say ANYTHING hateful?
The mainstream media would have people believe that if you're over 40 years of age, that your opinion somehow needs to be discounted in favor of younger (more naive) people, who haven't earned their stripes. Whatever happened to, "Honor thy father and thy mother?" Do journalists have naturally stupid parents whose opinions are destructive to America? It makes me wonder. Maybe. Clearly that's the assumption that can be fairly made if you listen to the news outlets discount any gathering of people who can be categorized as parents.
The mainstream media has increasingly difficult times maintaining ratings -- because they've made themselves irrelevant. They don't report the news, they strive hard to MAKE the news. And they do it (apparently) by pandering to special interest groups by discounting "White People", "Women with Children", "Working Americans", "Legal Citizens", "People over 40", and so forth.
I'm fed up with the mainstream media.
