Follow up — battle of the on-line Petitions

Yesterday morning I wrote of the most important story ever…in the mind of no one…the effort of gun nuts to deport British ex-patriot and generally loathsome person Piers Morgan back to the United Kingdom.

But the Brits are not going to just sit there and take this Yankee rebellion…this time.

A group of them have gotten together and put together a petition to call “John Bullshit!” on the efforts to send Piers Morgan back to the UK.

The petition is worded less passionately than the one calling for the Briton’s deportation, reading: “We want to keep Piers Morgan in the USA. There are two very good reasons for this. Firstly, the first amendment. Second and the more important point. No one in the UK wants him back. Actually there is a third. It will be hilarious to see how loads of angry Americans react.”

So in summary, it is a matter of principle and this once, Piers Morgan is right.

But second, and most importantly, Piers Morgan is not in Great Britain and THAT’S the way they like it…in Great Britain.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
