Silence is Consent

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.
- Thomas Jefferson

Jo Wilding Reports Under the Guns of Fallujah
Trucks, oil tankers, tanks are burning on the highway east to Falluja. A stream of boys and men goes to and from a lorry that's not burnt, stripping it bare. We turn onto the back roads through Abu Ghraib, Nuha and Ahrar singing in Arabic, past the vehicles full of people and a few possessions, heading the other way, past the improvised refreshment posts along the way where boys throw food through the windows into the bus for us and for the people inside still inside Falluja.

Deep Dark Truthful Mirror
"Face it: a nation that maintains a 72% approval rating on George W. Bush is a nation with a very loose grip on reality," Garrison Keillor wrote in the summer of 2002, right about the time it became obvious that America had slid into an alternate universe. "How else could we explain Condoleezza Rice's insistence, that, despite warnings from French intelligence, G-8 Summit organizers and Tom Clancy novels, nobody could have predicted that terrorists would fly airplanes into skyscrapers?," I wrote that August, without realizing the extent of the Twilight Zone absurdities and oddities yet to come.
