How Many Did I Speak For?

Denver-

Thus far I have heard from exactly 18 sports media members who have sent me a "thank you" for responding to Kenyon Martin last night, after he verbally abused me in the Nuggets locker room.

These notes have come from people (some surprising individuals) here in Denver - as well as from many more outside the area - who thanked me for giving back to Kenyon Martin as good as Martin can dish it apparently to some folks who were previous victims of his thug personality.

In addition, the backing and support from my employers at the Radio Colorado Network, as well as from FSN Rocky Mountain, has been exceptional.

In my employers minds, this is clearly a case of a player who went well over a line and acted in an aggressive and hostile manner without provocation at all.

Let me be clear - and I have stated this in the previous blog message I wrote, Kenyon Martin cursed at me three times last night before I ever responded on my own.

The collective group of media personnel respected Martin's requests to have a ten foot perimeter as he got dressed last night. Not all players by the way are like this. Carmello Anthony for instance routinely allows the media to surround his locker stall as he gets dressed following games.

After Martin was finished putting his clothes on, we as a collective media group approached again. This time, as the individual who was furtherst to Martin's left, I wanted to make sure it was okay to now approach, which is why I asked him, "is it okay to talk now?"

Martin of course, responded with profanity once again, and once again, the media herd retreated to safe Kenyon distance.

I'll reiterate, that a few seconds later, hoping to lighten the atmosphere and hoping to make Martin see that I was not at all attempting to agitate him (although on the other hand I could have actually have cared less if he was agitated by me or anyone else) I mentioned that I would expect him to be in a better mood considering he scored a Nuggets career high of 34 points, and the fact that Denver registered a much needed victory.

It was at this point that Martin said something I couldn't make out (his back was to me) and asked him to clarify.

After responding that it was his suggestion that I go and fuck myself...I asked him what he said again just to make sure I heard that right, he repeated his line...before I decided to tell him that he could do the same.

From a recent Rocky Mountain News story:

Jim Gray, an ESPN reporter who grew up in Denver, was a sideline reporter at Wednesday night's game. Although he didn't see the incident during the game, he reported Friday on ESPN's SportsCenter that afterward he and two colleagues were walking out when they saw

Martin and three of his friends.

"He was going through a profanity-laced tirade," Gray reported on ESPN.

"And he was very angry and very upset and very loud.

"And at the time he happened to be signing some autographs for a couple of young fans. There were women around, some young people."

Gray went on to report that Martin, through a flurry of expletives, was saying, " 'There's absolutely no way any of these fans are going to talk to me in that manner. There's no way they can say what they want to say to me without them suffering some kind of a consequence. They can't talk to Kenyon like that.' And then he went on, and it was very loud and very boisterous."

From Nuggets General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe in the same RMN article:

"We take these things very seriously, and we don't condone any type of foul language, whether it's on the court or within earshot," Vande-weghe said.

If that's the case then where was the Nuggets personnel on the scene last night to admonish their player for his conduct and choice of words to this talk show host?

Sure the Nuggets staff and security personnel has an obligation to protect Nuggets employees - but certainly anyone covering an event should be given some protection and courtesy as well.

Both of my employers today have told me that not only do they back me 100%, but they also believe that I should in no way accept the Kroneke Sports decision to revoke my media credentials to cover Nuggets games at the Pepsi Center.

As both of my employers said to me today: you have done nothing wrong. They have offiered their full support and backing and I will be contacting both Nuggets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe as well as NBA Commissioner David Stern on Monday morning for further clarification.

I still at this moment, harbor not an ounce of regret for my words to Martin - considering the way that he approached me and showed me no respect whatsoever.

The entire episode is on tape - and I'll be releasing the audio soon enough.

To those who have thanked me for telling Martin something that they have wanted to for a long time...you're welcome.

Kenyon Martin: Garbage To The Core

Denver - He had just finished with a Nuggets career high of 34 points. 

He had just answered questions the previous day - denying having anything to do with having a few of his friends confronting a fan at the Pepsi Center for telling him to start earning his 14 million dollar a year paycheck. 

He had just led his team to an impressive win over a tired and sloppy Dallas Mavericks team which entered the game with a 13 game win streak. 

But Kenyon Martin was still miserable. 

As the media contingent entered the Nuggets locker room following the game and moved over to Martin's cubicle, Kenyon asked me and everyone else to "back the fuck up while I get dressed". 

Okay. No problem, Kenyon. 

Martin finished getting dressed and the herd of media peoples again moved toward his locker. 

I asked Martin just to make sure if it was okay to approach now? 

The not too gregarious Martin responded with more profanity by saying, "I told ya'll to back the fuck up." 

So we moved a few steps back again. 

Hoping to lighten the mood a bit I said to Martin that I expected him to be in a little better mood coming off a 34 point game and a victory. 

Martin with his back turned to me muttered something that I couldn't understand, so I asked him what he said? 

He asked me if I thought he stuttered. 

No, I replied, I just couldn't hear what you said. 

Martin then responded by telling me to go fuck myself. 

Go fuck myself?  Where did that come from? What did I say to illicit such a vulgar response? 

Thinking quickly on my feet and realizing that I was being verbally abused by an absolute creep, as well as by a person who has told other media personnel the same exact thing - and gotten away with it - Kenyon Martin was the last person who was going to treat me with no respect as he has done with plenty of others. 

"Fuck you, Kenyon", was my response back to this jackass. 

"No fuck you", Martin shot back. 

The next thing I know is that Nuggets locker room personnel, including their director of media Eric Sebastian, are surrounding me and asking me to leave. 

Their player who just verbally tried to beat on me? Nothing. Protect the investment - no matter what… which of course is how it is when you are paying someone (even someone as despicable as Kenyon Martin) 14 million dollars a year. 

Then came the kicker from Sebastian who obviously took the same media relations course that Pierre Lacroix did. 

"And you're credentials are going to be revoked", said Sebastian. 

This was the final straw as far as I was concerned. 

First I get a player telling me to go fuck myself for no reason at all, then I get shown the door when I stand up for myself and indicate an unwillingness to be bullied by this repulsive excuse for a human being, THEN on top of that you're gonna take my credentials away? 

Can you say Deja vu?

Haven't I been here before? 

The last time this happened I simply stood still and allowed Pierre Lacroix to verbally humiliate me while asking if I could only get a word in to rebut his ridiculous accusations. 

This time I wasn't going to simply stand still still, smile, and swallow this garbage from the piece of garbage that was throwing it at me in front of about 25 other members of the media. 

To make Sebastian clear of how I felt, I took my credential off on the spot and threw it to the ground and told him to have at it. 

Lacroix was the last pro sports executive who was going to hang a credential in front of me and take it away like the neighborhood bully does when he takes his ball and goes home. 

If the cost of retaining my self respect - and the respect of anyone else comes with me losing my credential to cover the Nuggets live and in person, then so be it. If the situation remains as it is as of this writing I have no regrets as to the way I defended myself. 

Ironically enough, just hours before this Kenyon Martin episode I was detailing my thoughts on what a jackass Kenyon Martin is on my television program Raw Sports on FSN Rocky Mountain

I have no question that had it been any other member of the attending media in that room tonight, they would have taken Kenyon Martin's words with a smile and cowered in fear whilst the big bad Kenyon took their respect and stomped it onto the carpet inside the Nuggets locker room. 

The problem with media personnel being abused and humiliated at times by players and coaches is in the fact that 99.9% of all media will take this crap and wait for it to happen again and again. 

I too have taken grief and unjustified language from other athletes at times covering both professional and collegiate sports. 

99.9% of the time I have walked away and simply avoided answering back. 

Not with this scumbag though. No way. 

I can watch the Nuggets on TV as well as I can watch them in person.

Kenyon Martin can kick around other members of the Denver media who choose to take his crap and ask for more whenever Kenyon feels like going street on them the next time.

 

But it won't be me.

NOTES...2-9-06

Denver -  

I thought the column by Westword columnist Michael Roberts was fair and as objective as possible for a guy that clearly doesn't like me too much. 

The response from most I've spoken with has been very positive. 

I didn't like the fact that Roberts called Benjie Kaze a "de-facto" Producer...Kaze is the guy who makes virtually all the programming decisions at FSN Rocky Mountain, and happens to be a terrific individual who is also blessed with great instincts for what works and what does not work on TV. 

I obviously, work. 

Some have sent me messages concerning the "lighting" on the set of Raw Sports. They make some valid points (although some have severely distorted the issue) but there is really little anyone can do to improve the situation that much at present. 

Raw Sports is a mobile show, in that I am always moving from one point to another often times. With other FSN produced programs fixing the lighting and making certain there is enough illumination is much less of a problem. Studio shows done with anchors situated in one place allow the set at FSN to concentrate most of the lighting adequately enough throughout the telecast. 

By the way on the next edition of Raw I'll be joined by Nuggets radio caster, Jerry Schemmel. 

I had a guy call in the other day to the radio program and say that Ron Nickel (Sr. VP RCN) had huge stones to allow me to do the program without any interference from management. 

The truth of the matter is that I'll never do another radio program with my name on it that doesn't allow me total and complete creative control with the same as far as content is concerned. 

On today's radio program I again detailed how grossly distorted this racial "problem" is at CU in Boulder. To read people in the Denver Post covering this story, one would get the sense that the CU situation is unique in America. It is not. Far from it, although the papers continue to reference this issue as though taking to the streets of Boulder for a black person is as risky as a white person strolling down Martin Luther King Blvd. in Harlem at 3 AM. 

The scumbag himself, Al Sharpton, failed to make it into Boulder to address the famous Blue Ribbon panel that has been assembled by CU President, Hank Brown. Sharpton cited troubles with the plane that was supposed to bring him to Colorado from New York the other night. He did appear on the O'Reilly Factor that evening however. 

Another scumbag by the name of Donald Trump (does this moron deserve a beating or what?) has been told that his organizations proposal for the historic Union Station are not welcomed. Thank goodness. The less Donald Trump like characters in Colorado, the better. Trump needs to get a respectable haircut soon. He should. 

George Karl and his thin skinned nature appear ready to explode any day now. He told yours truly to basically shut-up the other night after I asked him at what point does he begin to get angry with his underachieving basketball team? Karl has mentioned that one of his dreams is to one day coach the NY Knicks - with Karl's not liking to be second guessed at all the NY media would have him in hives before a quarter of the season was completed...if he was the coach of the Knicks. 

By the way, what is the longest recorded funeral on record? Coretta Scott King's lasted six hours the other day! In addition it was turned into a mud slinging event by people like Jimmy Carter, a black Reverend who ground an axe that day, and to a lesser extent by the former dirtbag himself, Bill Clinton. Clinton's digs at fellow mourner George W. Bush were more subliminal than the other two smileys. 

Looking forward to getting the Conversation Friday program back out on the road...tomorrow the show originates from C.B. & Potts in the Flat Irons Mall complex where it will be with each succeeding Friday broadcast. If Bruce The Fierce shows up, lunch and drinks are on me, sir. 

But will the WebGuy show up? 

How about Kris Olinger? 

Donna Starr should be a keeper by the way. 

Sports, Politics, Life...& Everything In Between.

 

There is no other show like it.

 

Grin & bear it. Bear it? "Bare" it? Bayer it?  Whatever.

I've Been Thinking About...

I've been thinking about...

The fact that this witch hunt in Boulder that makes the University of Colorado look like a racist institution to many people here in Colorado - and across the country, is a disservice of the highest order to many of the good folks who attend - and work for, this fine university.

I've been thinking about...

The fact that nobody cares about two things coming up in the next few weeks:

1-The Winter Olympics.

2-The Baseball World Classic.

I've been thinking about...

How many people continue to come into the state of Colorado in record numbers almost every single day...legally, of course. I believe that whomever becomes the next Governor, should seek to immediately close off all borders to our beautiful state their very first day in office. Far too many people are finding out just how good we have it out here. Go back!

I've been thinking about...

Mike Roberts upcoming feature story on yours truly that will surface later this week. I've already gone on record and said that if the tenor and tone of the column is even slightly positive, I'll walk around Invesco Field 162 times for any charity that may be interested in sponsoring the event. Fat chance! Expect Roberts to fire away with daggers and spikes.

I've been thinking about...

How much I'm always looking forward to the "Tuesday With Terry" segments I do each week with Denver Post columnist, Terry Frei. I get the sense that my audience eagerly awaits these chit chats too. Come to think of it does Terry Frei ever sound more enthused to do any other radio program? I didn't think so.

I've been thinking about...

All of this pomp and circumstance given to Coretta Scott King after she died. I'm all for paying proper respects, but my goodness! You would have thought some major world figurehead had hit the dirt with all of this fanfare. Is she even in the ground yet? God Bless the women...but please stop acting like her death is on a par with the second coming.

I've been thinking about...

The fact that isn't it just like the twisted and mentally challenged Democratic bozos, to go ahead and turn the Coretta Scott King funeral into a political opportunity? Bashing the current President was former President Jimmy Carter - and a Minister on the scene...children on a sugar rush don't get as bad as these people do.

I've been thinking about...

How I could really care less that Warren Moon is the first black quarterback in the NFL Hall Of Fame. I mean really now. Why should anyone be surprised that Warren Moon is going into the HOF?? He was an awesome quarterback in the CFL & the NFL. The fact that he is a black man - and pointing that out - is an insult to him and to his race.

I've been thinking about...

All of this talk about how to rebuild New Orleans. The amazing thing to me is in hearing the local politicians (including the "Chocolate City" Mayor) continue to talk about getting the Mardi Gras districts up and running asap. Sensational priorities! How about building a "new" New Orleans? You know, one with a moral fiber, one that is less dependent on the negative stereotypes that came to define that city in the past? How about a city with a "new respect" a new identity - less sleaze, less prostitution, a more prosperous and brighter future? How about some authentic and positive structure for New Orleans? A new city defined by new parameters - where people would enjoy going to for reasons other than to act like a jackass? Here's hoping they fumigate this treacherous habitat - give it a fresh new coat of paint - and get rid of the miscreants who pillaged and raped the town of any respect it may have had in the days following Katrina. Lastly someone tell the people in the Crescent City to stop looking for various handouts, to pull up their bootstraps, and to make something happen for themselves. Stop depending on the Government to answer your every need. Work!

I've been thinking about...

Every time I watch the PBR on OLN, I get an opportunity to listen to PBR President Tye Murray, butcher the English language with regularity. Hey Tye, I know you're a Cowboy from Texas, but please learn proper diction, will ya please? You're only the President of the toughest sport on dirt for crying out loud!

I've been thinking about...

How while there is an abundance of almost everything within the Rocky Mountain State - I feel there is a definite lack of strong, independent, fundamental, bible teaching,  bible preaching (KJV Only) church's in the state. If this doesn't change soon - then I'm simply gonna start my own church. Say I won't.

I've been thinking about...

A terrific book I am nearly done with. If you're like me and have a fascination with the "Old West", then the definitive book on the life & times of Wyatt Earp can be found in: Wyatt Earp, The Life Behind The Legend...authored by Casey Tefertiller. This is a fantastically detailed account on the life of one of the Old West's most misunderstood characters. Recommended reading for sure. Buy it here:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0471283622/103-4634611-0559841?v=glance&n=283155

I've been thinking about...

How few good movies are worth going to the theater to see these days. On Super Bowl Sunday they announced that the re-make of the "Poseidon Adventure" would be coming out this summer. Is this the best that Hollywood can offer? Other flicks scheduled to be released later this year include:

>Mission Impossible 3

>Miami Vice (The movie)

>"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest"

>"The Da Vinci Code" Movie Preview

>Casino Royale (New James Bond)

>The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (A Western!)

>X3

>Cars

>Over The Hedge (Animation)

>World Trade Center - Flight 93

>The Shaggy Dog (ONLY for the extremely stupid & most infantile audiences)

>Basic Instinct 2 (Are they kidding?)

>My Super Ex-Girlfriend

>Superman (Again?)

Frankly I've stayed away form the movies the last several years - based upon the junk that Hollywood continues to churn out...this year it appears that the pickens are slim once again.

I've been thinking about...

How much I am looking forward to the start of Spring Training and the Rockies season...really.

I've been thinking about...

How much I was digging The Donna Starr Show on KOA Radio this past Saturday. Bright, charismatic, personable, knowledgeable...one of the better talk show hosts I've heard lately. 

I've been thinking about...

I know football season is over with (Pro Bowl aside), but I'm already looking forward to CSU-CU on September 9. If Mark Driscoll is reading this, please put the game in Ft. Collins? By placing the game at Invesco Field you put dollars ahead of sense...you also sell out the Ft. Collins & northern Colorado community that you plead with to come to your other games at Hughes Stadium.

I've been thinking about...

How it is an absolute travesty that Major League Baseball still hasn't awarded actual ownership of the Washington Nationals to anyone yet?

I've been thinking about...

The Colorado 14ers - a new CBA franchise slated to tip off this coming October at the spanking brand new Broomfield Events Center. What has me additionally intrigued, is the CBA style of "points", that gives each team an opportunity to "win" quarters. The CBA is structured with a points system very much like that of the NHL. So if a CBA team loses a ballgame - but wins two of the quarters played, they collect valuable points in the standings. Should the NBA look in this direction? For instance the Nuggets lost last night to Golden State, but by virtue of them winning the 2nd quarter (outscoring the Warriors 33-24) they would have at the very least come away with points. I actually like it. It gives each quarter played much more relevance.

I've been thinking about...

What people in the Nation of Cote D'Ivoire has been surfing this website??? Please identify yourself!

I've been thinking about...

Lastly for now - as a member of the Constitution Party, I've been thinking about my party's response to the President's recent State Of The Union address, and here it is:

President Bush's 2006 State of the Union address, while undeniably a superb piece of political gamesmanship, highlighted the fundamental disconnect between most of the President's positions and the principles of constitutionally-limited government.

This is hardly a new development, since the leadership of both major parties has treated portions of the Constitution as a dead letter for generations. Nevertheless, as the only national party whose platform is 100% constitutional, we are duty-bound to remind the American public of what is really at stake with issues like terrorism, welfare, social security, and other matters attracting attention in Washington.

We agree with President Bush that our strength as a nation flows from the freedoms that we enjoy, and that we must strive, and, if necessary, make sacrifices, in order to protect those freedoms. But love of freedom and love of country are not necessarily the same thing.

While we applaud the outpouring of genuine patriotism in the wake of 9-11 and the heartfelt desire to support the men and women serving in America's Armed Forces, we must point out that our freedoms are guaranteed in the final analysis by a United States Constitution that not only safeguards certain God-given rights but also imposes very clear restrictions on the powers of our own federal government. Love of freedom, therefore, must include a reverence for the Constitution and respect for the limits it places on power.

Unfortunately, many of our leaders in Washington have shown that they are willing to use crises to justify extra-constitutional expansion of government powers. Since 9-11, we have witnessed a significant expansion of executive powers to search without warrants, imprison without a trial, and pursue alleged criminals without accountability to due process.

We heard President Bush argue for reauthorizing the Patriot Act, a bill that was rushed through Congress without proper scrutiny by lawmakers, and which embodies the old cliche about the devil being in the details. The Bush Administration is also completely unapologetic about authorizing the CIA and NSA to conduct domestic espionage, another extremely dangerous precedent that could become a pretext for further abuse of executive power by future administrations.

We have also become involved in two major overseas wars, neither of which was authorized by a Constitutionally-mandated Congressional declaration. The fact that we have not fought a declared war since World War II is not an excuse for cavalier disregard of this critical limit on the powers of the Executive branch, which was intended, as Alexander Hamilton explained in the Federalist Papers, to ensure that the American President would not possess the power of an Old World monarch to start wars at his own discretion. Nor are the various political arguments in favor of military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan justification for ignoring the Constitution. The power to start wars is easily abused, and has been exploited throughout history by unscrupulous despots to solidify their hold on power. If we continue to grant president after president carte blanche to wage war at his personal whim, we should not be surprised to see greater and greater abuses of this power, and more and more frequent resorts to military action all over the world.

Some in Congress have protested that the Bush Administration doctored the evidence to push America into war in Iraq. But few of those Congressmen were willing to hold President Bush accountable in the first place, by insisting that a Declaration of War be debated and voted upon.

President Bush made it clear that his vision, like that of most of his recent predecessors, is for America to continue to be militarily engaged all over the world, overthrowing hostile governments and waging an open-ended war on terrorism. He derided those who oppose such a course of action as "isolationists." America has never been isolationist, but it was once very sensibly non-interventionist. The Founding Fathers themselves were keenly interested in trade and diplomacy, and many of them were well-educated in foreign languages, culture and history. But they did not want America transformed into some kind of global policeman. They understood that America neither possessed the resources nor the moral authority to impose her will on the entire world.

In 1820, for example, when Greece was fighting a valiant battle for freedom against a cruel and oppressive Ottoman regime, America was pressured to lend her support to the cause. President John Quincy Adams, on July 4th of that year, responded to those who would have involved America in an overseas quarrel by reminding his listeners that America "goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own... She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom.

The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force.... She might become the dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit....[America's] glory is not dominion, but liberty." This wise counsel is just as applicable today. Incidentally, the Greeks won their independence, fighting against one of the most powerful empires of the day, without American aid money and without American troops.

President Bush also took issue with what he and like-minded internationalists call protectionism. They accuse protectionists of building walls around America and trying to shut out world trade. We do not oppose trade as such. What we oppose are international agreements that deliberately hobble American industry. We also oppose unwise policies that not merely permit trade but throw open our borders, attempts to compromise our sovereignty under the guise of so-called "free trade" agreements like NAFTA and the WTO, and domestic laws that impose such steep taxes and regulatory penalties that American companies are given strong incentives to move their operations overseas.

President Bush rightly stated in his address that America still leads the world in talent. If that is the case, then why are so many talented American workers losing their jobs to overseas competitors? Simply put, it is because our own policies are making it prohibitively expensive to hire domestic workers for many functions. President Bush claims he wants to strengthen American workers and continue to encourage investment, research, and development. He stated "With open markets and a level playing field, no one can out-produce or out-compete the American worker." But his administration has done everything it can to give Mexicans, Indians, and Chinese a competitive advantage over American workers. The president simply cannot be given credit for sincerity in this matter.

The huge unpopularity of our government's immigration policy has forced our politicians to mouth pieties they disbelieve. The President said "Our nation needs orderly and secure borders. To meet this goal, we must have stronger immigration enforcement and border protection." The very reason we do not have immigration enforcement and border protection is that there has been a deliberate policy under administrations of both parties not to enforce the laws of the land. The President goes on to reject amnesty which he championed when he thought he could get away with it.

In fact, all our establishment politicians serve corporate interests who would further drive down wages for working Americans and dilute the American national character with Third World immigrants whose tragic national histories too often leave them with no ability to appreciate America's legacy of ordered liberty and the rule of law.

The President correctly pointed out that America has become addicted to foreign oil, especially oil produced in unstable parts of the world.

Yet he made no mention of the continual refusal of the federal government to authorize oil and natural gas extraction in places like the Arctic National Wildlife refuge, or of the burdensome regulations that have hamstrung domestic oil extraction for much of the last couple of decades.

President Bush, like almost everyone in Washington these days, believes that there are few problems that cannot be solved by the creative application of government power. In his address he recommended further federal involvement in education, health care, social security, and a host of other concerns. He said, for example, that "Our government has a responsibility to help provide health care for the poor and the elderly." In fact, nowhere is providing health care for the poor and elderly authorized in the U.S. Constitution. That these may be noble ends does not justify using unconstitutional means to attain them. The same may be said for federal government involvement in education, social security, welfare, and so forth.

To many Americans, this may sound cruel and heartless, because we have become so accustomed to demand that government provide for us the things that, in most cases, we can and ought to provide for ourselves. Those of us who champion limited constitutional government will always be at a rhetorical disadvantage to those who, like President Bush, prefer to disregard the Constitution and promise whatever they think will sell to a prime time audience.

But our vision is optimistic. We believe that only by returning to our constitutional roots will we make progress in paying off our colossal national debt, providing for our national security, and stabilizing our economy. We believe that ballooning costs in health care and education are best solved by less government intervention, not more. We expect our elected leaders to adhere strictly to their constitutional oaths of office, and make no apologies for holding them to their obligations. We want a strong America leading the worldwide cause of freedom, but by example, not by military force, unless absolutely necessary.

We applaud the growth of marvelous new technologies like the Internet, where the absence of government oversight has allowed unprecedented innovation and wealth creation. We look forward to the day when the blight of abortion is once again illegal. Above all, we hope for a return to the moral values that made America great in the first place, and pray that Almighty God will bless our nation as we move in that direction.
