Freedom of ______; You Fill in the Blank! By Humorist Will Roberts

Being on the road as much as I am, the Internet is the best

way for me to keep informed. All I know is what little I read
on the Internet. In the past two weeks, I’ve been through
four states (Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Georgia).
My travels as a rope-spinning humorist allow me to go
wherever anyone still likes a cowboy that can put a spin on
This, I tell you my friends, is becoming few and far
between. Well now anyhow, I seem to be rambling on, so
I best be getting to the point. I don’t want be accused of
WASTING your time, or WASTING my life away writing
senseless dribble, or WASTING my education on this
little hobby of mine, or “Wasting Away in Margarettaville”
for that matter.

Seems to me, we might want to stop using the word
“WASTE.” No more “wasting” our time, “waste” is our
new “four letter word.” Ya’ see, certain politicians have
been using this word to describe the loss of folk’s lives in
Iraq. Little did they know that using that word would be
so hurtful. My only response to that is, “Sorry but the truth
hurts, doesn’t it?” It’s always a “waste” when we don’t eat
what others don’t have or we don’t use talents we have been
given or someone DIES before their time. Seems our freedom
of speech has been cut down at the knees and it would
be best described as “freedom to say whatever we want as
long as everyone agrees with our words.”

If we start attacking ALL our words, we might have to
talk to Webster about updating more often. It’s getting so
hard to express oneself nowadays that when I walk down
the street, I don’t know whether to say “good day ladies”,
or “girls” or “women.” If I say what I think the politically
correct want me to say, like “good day females,” folks would
think I’m ill. I will continue to THINK things are a “waste”
until we figure what word we should replace it with.

P.S. Isn’t it funny that it was politicians that made the
remarks and other politicians that objected to their usage.
Hmmmm?? I smell an election year coming. Hey politicians,
get back to work and stop “wasting” our time.

P.S.S. A word to the wise, IF the word you want to use is
not in Webster’s you might just want to find another word.
Mrs. Ann Coulter, “a bundle of sticks” is one definition
for the choice word you used to describe the presidential
candidate. However, maybe it was not the best choice for
expressing your freedom of speech.

Your friend,




Will Roberts’ Weekly Telegram

Will Roberts’ Weekly Telegram as a political variety radio show strives to bring disparate and often refreshingly unusual viewpoints that can be respectfully shared and explored.

“All I ever knew I read in the newspaper” was not only a famous Will Rogers quote but also the honest truth. Rogers scoured any and all newsprint he could get his hands on, which made for some incredible viewpoints. Will Roberts has updated that quote, “All I ever knew I read on the Internet.”  With millions of news events being sent to the web, Will is sure to never run out of things to say.

In a world where talk radio has become talk at you radio, Will is embarking on a territory that has not been touched in a long time, the world of communication. People talking to each other.

A Crackpot’s Potshot at American Politics
by Will Roberts

Will Roberts has retained the wit and country mannerisms of Will Rogers, both on stage and in his writings. The daily articles on world events and politics are as typical of our times as Rogers’s daily sayings and Sunday articles of his day. I know you will enjoy the way Roberts has kept the legacy of a great journalist, skilled roper, actor, and an American icon in his writings today.

Doris Coke Lane Meyer, Grand-niece of Will Rogers
