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

Disney Forbidding Distribution of Film That Criticizes Bush

A few excerpts from this article
"Michael Eisner asked me not to sell this movie to Harvey Weinstein; that doesn't mean I listened to him," Mr. Emanuel said. "He definitely indicated there were tax incentives he was getting for the Disney corporation and that's why he didn't want me to sell it to Miramax. He didn't want a Disney company involved."

This is classic
"It's not in the interest of any major corporation to be dragged into a highly charged partisan political battle," this executive said. (I wonder if he said that with a straight face?)

Good question
Mr. Moore, who will present the film at the Cannes film festival this month, criticized Disney's decision in an interview on Tuesday, saying, "At some point the question has to be asked, `Should this be happening in a free and open society where the monied interests essentially call the shots regarding the information that the public is allowed to see?' "

A simple way to make computer voting safer
Paperless touch-screen voting systems have triggered a controversy — invisible ballot systems may represent the biggest bamboozling in the history of voting. But even if we make vapor-ballot systems disappear, problems with computerized vote-counting will remain.
