<quoted text>As I stated, efforts to get rid of Piers Morgan have failed. Your assertion that "a large majority of people" disagreed with Morgan's comments (what you describe as "rant") about the second amendment borders on the ludicrous.
If you are as passionate about the first amendment as about the second amendment, you will recognize that Piers Morgan has a right to say things you disagree with. If I were to use your criteria for ousting someone from the airwaves, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly et al, and the Fox News channel would disappear.
Like all rights, misuse is not protected. I can own a gun and use it in defense but the second amendment says nothing about using it for murder. The first does not give one the right to lie or abuse the truth. Piers keeps throwing the U.K. and gun deaths in our face but the U.K. was a land of tyranny and the people lived at the whim of a royal family who was the law of the land. Only after the U.S. fought off that dictator and formed a government of the people did England get with the program. They still live with that prehistoric belief of a royal family who's ancestors executed citizens by the thousands. Get into this century and shrug off that royalty crap. We can lead you to the tree of knowledge but can't make you eat.

Actually, Eternal Cynic is correct. The POTUS is chief in charge of the federal executive branch of government, he doesn't preside over the people, he doesn't preside over congress, he doesn't preside over the supreme court. In fact, he lacks the authority to tell a citizen to do a single jumping jack.

Despite your condescendingly petty tone, I'll reply to a couple of your more ludicrous comments.

If you want to blame the current British royal family for its ancestors' behavior, then I can blame today's Catholic Church for its murderous and savage past history. While I'm at it, I might as well blame today's white Americans for the purchase and savage treatment of slaves in our shameful past.

Today's Royal Family is more about celebrity and entertainment than about what they did when they had real power. We have Beyonce and Justin Beiber.

Yu are mistaken about the first amendment. It does give people the right to lie. If it didn't, most Topix contributors would be facing criminal charges. Piers Morgan is by no means the only TV personality to support gun control. The fact that he is a British subject is irrelevant.

But you miss the point of the U.S. setting the standard for human rights all over the world. Before us most countries were ruled by royalty or emperor. We were really the first large scale democracy. Yes we too took a while to get it right but we expanded rights not infringed more of them. I don't care what you call the royal family, it is an antique in the modern world to have a royal family that lives of the blood of the working class. It would be the same to have Hitler's family live a lavish life style off the German peoples back. Then tell us we should be more like them. We are the most powerful superpower the world has ever known. We are the only country to send men to the Moon (more than once). We have been the blueprint for human rights and a government that answers to the people for the whole world since the founding of the U.S.A. I think we are doing just fine and until the rest can run with us then why take advice from some lowly commentator who has never accomplished anything in his life.

Opps forgot to address the lie part. I can yell fire in a crowded building if it's on fire but can't do it with intent to harm. I can make an observation of you and render an opinion but I can't make up lies and defame your character. You have the right to vote but only your ballot not mine. Your rights do not supercede mine. You can't use your rights as an excuse to infringe on mine. You can face criminal charges for what you say on here.

I've tried to understand how the UK government works, it's an extremely complex and confusing system compared to the USA's Constitutional Republic.

We never expected Morgan to be deported, the petition was mainly put up as a way to let it be known that a large majority of people strongly disagreed with his rant against the 2nd Amendment
You called that one! Lame, the reply doesn't mention Piers Morgan, deportation or Morgan's comments. It's just a campaign speech for gun control.

Yes, there is liberal bias in the media. That has nothing to do with the petitions on the White House site.
I contend liberal media bias blinds our press from Obama's misdirection and demagogy. As long as journalists act like the press wing of the Democratic party, we've lost the fourth estate's role in government accountability.

eternal cynic wrote:
You again overlook there is a petition to impeach Obama on the site as well.
That petition proves my charge of misdirection; only Congress can impeach so creating a impeachment petition on the White House's official website only serves to confound low information voters and protect Obama from real accountability.

Anyone can start a petition to deport anyone.
And that's the problem; it's not the administrative branch's role to host petitions.

There is no violation of civil rights unless the government illegally acts on the petition.
Obama is unconstitutionally abridging our freedom to petition the Government for a redress of grievances with a sham. His reply to the Piers Morgan petition is proof; he doesn't even mention Morgan, deportation or the complaint against Morgan's speech in his reply.

The reality here, the petition is irrelevant. Our government couldnít possibly legally act on the petition to deport Piers. Now, there would be a way to get rid of Piers. Pressure CNN and Boycott any company with advertisements in that time slot. Perfectly legal.

I absolutely find what Piers has said on the issue of gun control highly objectionable. However, I do support his right to say what he did.

The White House in no way is behaving unconstitutional by hosting the petitions. The website in no way hinders citizens from petitioning the government. Itís not the official method of petitioning, itís simply an additional method.

That people think that a Subject coming from another country and actively campaigning against the Rights of US Citizens in this country is protected by the First Amendment is an indicator of how unAmerican the population of this country has become.

What a bunch of ignorant fools.

It's called conspiracy but only in a society that gives a damn about Liberty and the protection of it.

I'm not saying he should be deported - hopefully his hyper-emotional, anti-philosophical, whining frightened ass will feel unwelcomed enough to just leave - but I AM saying that the BILL OF RIGHTS does not protect someone who actively seeks to undermine its' very purpose.

That would be absurd wouldn't it? There are no moral or legal protections in this country for those who seek to "transform" it from a federalist Republic to a sterile, centrally planned UK-style anthill. None. Read the Constitution if you don't believe me. Go study philosophy if you don't believe me - an no, marxism, tribalism, collectivism, and nihilism are not philosophy.
