I saw an article in my local paper today under the byline of one David Espo of the Associated Press. At the time I knew nothing of Mr. Espo. After reading the first sentence in his article it was obvious that he had neither taken a basis civics course in high school or college nor did he have a functional knowledge of law, rights, the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution.
Here is part of the sentence that made me want to learn more about Mr. Espo,
“…congressional Democrats put the final touches Thursday March 25, to historic legislation enshrining health care as the right of every citizen.”
Wow! I would advise Mr. Espo not to go on the “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader” television quiz show. Even my fifth grade son knows that our rights as American citizens do not come from Congress, Democrats or laws. Our rights, if you would like to look at Declaration of Independence, come to us from our Creator. A few of them are listed there. Here is why we believe our rights come from the Creator, Mr. Espo: because then only he can take them away!
Furthermore, Mr. Espo seems to think that because Congress passes a law that is “enshrined.” I am not sure if he knows what that word means or perhaps this unbiased “journalist” was speaking metaphorically. In a democratic republic like ours laws are open to challenge. As a final note on this one sentence Mr. Espo seems to think it covers “every citizen.” Even those how foisted this unwanted scam on the American public admit it still leaves millions uninsured.
I thought I would do a little research on the undereducated Mr. Espo. I wanted to find out how someone who demonstrated such enormous incompetence in so few words could hold a job. Perhaps he had just had a bad day at the word factory. Imagine my surprise when I found a number of internet references to what I will politely term “misstatements” in Mr. Espo’s work.
His reporting on redistricting in Texas, ( http://unitelater.com/s9y/index.php?/archives/140-David-Espo-Incompetent,-or-Propagandist.html ), on voting for judicial nominees, (http://www.all-encompassingly.com/third-grade-insights-from-david-espo/) and a number of other topics as reported on the News Busters ( http://newsbusters.org/people/david-espo ) show him to be nothing more than a left wing propagandist. This is to be expected since he works at the Associated Press the media arm of socialist causes everywhere!
