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.

Anybody even want to talk about that?

The public: misled
The case for war: exaggerated
And who was to blame? No one
