Oliver North, Ice-T and the U.S. Constitution

Oliver North continues to show his contempt for the Constitution. How dare someone who so blatantly and admittedly "circumvented" the Boland amendment become a spokesperson for morality in this country.

The same amendment that allows North to be so well paid to express ideas that many Americans find both disturbing and repulsive also protect Ice-T's expression.

It is not popular music, or Murphy Brown for that matter, that is destroying the moral fabric of this country, but rather that segment of our society and government that feels it is above the law and for whom the Constitution is merely an inconvenience.

I'm no lover of rap music, but I'd rather listen to Ice-T's music than Ollie North's pseudo-patriotic rap any time.
