If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

I do not like the statement, said by many, "We are at war". I haven't liked it ever since 9/11. I didn't like it in relation to Bosnia/Kosovo either. I don't believe a President should be able to call his use of the military a war unless he goes to Congress and gets them to declare war. Until that time he should have to refer to it as "My Unconstitutional Use of American Military Power". If a President was so sure about his case for war he should be able to sell it to Congress.

Questions for Paul Wolfowitz
Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz is scheduled to testify before the Senate and House Armed Services Committee this week. Rising violence in Iraq this month has forced the Pentagon to extend the tours of 20,000 soldiers originally scheduled to return home. The hearings will provide Congress with an opportunity to closely question Wolfowitz on his previous statements and predictions about post-war Iraq.
