Thank You Michael J. Fox (Deluded Fool from Sarnia)

With Robbie Thomas (who is not psychic, by the way) having "postponed" his whole tour, I'm sure many were wondering what it was that I'd have to write about.  Thankfully for you, a letter to the editor appeared in our local paper today from an old friend (and by friend I mean "tool that I've pointed out before"), Michael J. Fox (Sarnia).

Before I get into Michael J. Fox (Sarnia)'s most recent letter to the editor, let me explain something about him.  Okay, skip that, his complete failure to grasp the bible as a bunch of made-up crap is clearly shown in his post.  I need not say more.

The title of the letter to the editor is: "FREEDOMS CAN BE LOST QUICKLY"

Oddly, the majority of the letter refers to many nations becoming "less free" in 2009.  He goes on to say that our freedoms in Canada are being dismantled too but makes no reference of any.  The final "paragraph" of his letter, however, tells it all.  He says (and I paraphrase) "The world will never know true freedom because some dead palestinian is never coming back (he may not have ever lived) if you believe my man-made book that I claim was inspired by my non-existent god.  RAmen."  or something like that.

Sorry Michael, your article is incoherent at best.  Your final paragraph assures us that you haven't shed any of your delusions, too.

Here's the letter to the editor:

Sir:The world became less free in 2009, according to Freedom House, an independent watchdog organization that monitors the status of human freedom around the world.

"For the fourth consecutive year, global declines in freedom outweighed gains in 2009, as measured by Freedom House's annual survey of political rights and civil liberties. This represents the longest continuous period of decline for global freedom in the nearly 40-year history of the report." (Freedom in the World 2010: Global Erosion of Freedom -Jan. 12, 2010).

They found declines in freedom in 40 countries, including authoritarian states that became more repressive, and setbacks in countries that had been trending more positively in recent years. the Middle East remains the most repressive region overall and Africa showed the greatest declines in freedom.

The worst of the worst, ranked "not free," include nine countries and one territory -Burma (Myanmar), Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Tibet (ruled by China), turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Freedom is a precious commodity. Currently only 46% of the world's population live in countries ranked as "free."

I ask, what is the definition of freedom, but I say to Canadians, watch your back. Our freedoms are being dismantled every year. We may wake up one day with all of our freedoms eroded.

What the Bible prizes is true freedom. When Jesus Christ returns to the earth, all humans at last will know and bask in true freedom. But for now, in a world devoid of true freedom, watch your back.-- Michael J. Fox Sarnia

Welcome to Sarnia. Our news sources are horrible. Did you see what George Hayes said about Robbie Thomas? He has it on his website. I didn't mind George Hayes until that crap.

Is Michael J. Fox competing for the title of town idiot with Michael Shoesmith?

I'm sure that George Hayes was only doing his job and probably regrets saying what he said. Robbie Thomas paid for air time, what are they to do?

As for our news sources - I think that to the paper and the radio stations it appears that their listeners/readers are more delusional simply because non-believers don't write letters to the paper claiming their non-belief. It's also not near as giggle-worthy to read about a logical and thought-out opinion that is based on evidence.

The whacky crap that people like (and I use the preface "Mr." loosely) Mr. Fox and Mr. Shoesmith send to the paper could simply be published by the editors for the same reason I post letters/press releases - because we're seriously entertained at the inanity. Being able to re-print their crap makes my day. (I just wish they'd do as I do and point out the absurdity.)

This is response I just read about Robbie Thomas Tour. In John Rames statement I read where self-proclaomed psychic Andrew Brewer ran around L.A helping get his good buddy Robbie a venue and ticket sales and air time for his tour. A while ago I just read a statement by Andrew Brewer the He is not doing readings anymore"feels guilty about charging for them."And is moving on to other things. Is there some kind of connection here???
