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 think Bob Woodward's book is propaganda. It tells us a bunch of things we already knew: Bush has been lying to the sheeple about when the decision to go to war was made. He has a tight, destructive relationship with the Saudis. He is told by God to do what he is doing. Cheney hates Powell, Powell hates Cheney. Bush won't admit a mistake (WMD). But I think the biggest bit of propaganda in this book is his attempt to make it look like Bush in "engaged". All the talk about when Bush decided to go to war, please. It's when the CEO President was told we were going to war. In all actuality it was done during the 2000 campaign. The White House seems pleased with the book. Unlike those written by former administration members. It's sad that Woodward, All the President's Men Bob Woodward, has sunk to a mouth piece for the White House.
In my state (Texas) a special legislative session is starting today. It's on the eternal problem of school finance. In my state they want to shift the burden from property owners to smokers, gamblers and those that like to frequent adult entertainment establishments. Further going to prove the point that there is no such thing as a tax decrease, just a tax shift. So for the sake of the kids smoke more, gamble more and remember to get a lap-dance so little Johnny can learn to read.
There is a truce in Fallujah where the so called insurgents are supposed to turn in their heavy weaponry. Do the Marines have to turn theirs in too? Oh yeah, this will work.
