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.

Joint 9/11 testimony raises speculation
Chairman Thomas H. Kean, asked at a news conference a few weeks ago about the White House's requirement that President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney appear together before his commission on the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, quipped: ''Well, we recognize that Mr. Bush may help Mr. Cheney with some of the answers."
One man's take on our Presidential choice
Kerry's DLC versus The Pirates
Let's be clear about the choices available to American voters in November. History, most notably the historical weakness of the U.S. Left, has dealt the cards. Yet a fraction of those who claim to be progressives, misreading history and oblivious to the evidence of their senses, pretend that there is no overarching reason to do everything humanly possible to defeat George Bush in 2004. They claim there is "no difference" between the contenders: it's Tweedledum Bush or Tweedledee Kerry, and "nothing will change" whether one wins or the other.
Another man's take on our Presidential choice
It almost goes without saying that there are a few things wrong with this country right now. There is one thing in particular, though, that seems to be the root of all of these problems. I'll give you a hint: it starts with a 'G', and ends with an 'eorge W. Bush'. Did you figure it out? Millions of Americans already have.

Punditry's puzzlement is allayed by one consensus: that in times of war, the president gets the benefit of the doubt. Columnist Joshua Micah Marshall put it best last Friday in the New York Times: "The president has cast the nation on what is essentially a war of choice. To admit that the president blew it is to say the same of the public that followed him into the conflict. And like its leaders, the public ... doesn't like admitting it was wrong [and] will go to great lengths to avoid doing so."
