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 watched a little of the Republican Convention last night. It didn't take long for me for me to get tired of them all singing the 911 song. It goes something like this, "Ooooooh, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911..." It's not hard to learn and from what I saw McCain and Guliani had it down pretty good last night.
They are also taking great pains to make sure that if any undecided voters are watching that they will not see what the true face of the rulers of the Republican Party is. No you will not see DeLay, Santorum, Frist, Ashcroft, Rumsfeld, Perle, Wolofowitz nor will you see the religious zealots like Bill Bennett, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell or Ralph Reed. The mean/divisive face of the Republican Party will be hidden all week. Instead what you will see is the Pro-choice, indifferent on gay marriage, love minorities and women, nice/inclusive Republicans like McCain, the Governator, Guliani, Pataki and Laura Bush. Except for Wednesday and Thursday when "Unka" and the President come out to rub the "wing nuts" tummies. Make no mistake about it, even worse than this term, if reelected the compassion and the conservatism will be gone. If given another term all the crazies that are hidden this week will be back, remember none of them have been relieved of their duties. Without having to worry about reelection everything is fair game.
So when your President is caught saying "sensitive" things like this:
When asked whether we can "win" the "war on terror" Senator Kerry said: "Can we win? I don’t think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that the — those who use terror as a tool are — less acceptable in parts of the world.”He is only doing it to make him look like he has a brain. And when he says this:
Mr. Sanger: So this— the mistake is specifically what?And when Cheney says this:
THE PRESIDENT: Well, it's a — it's a miscalculation of the — what the conditions would be like after a swift victory, because we never dreamt it would be that swift.
And so the fundamental question is, what are you doing about it? And what we're doing about it is dealing with it. We've got a flexible plan. In other words, a plan —
Q Was it flexible fast enough? I mean ...
THE PRESIDENT: Well, David, that's what historians and that's what people like yourself could judge. The point is, it was flexible. And we're now dealing with it, and Iraq is headed toward elections.
...he believed that decisions about same-sex marriages should be left to the states, contending that "freedom means freedom for everyone."It is nothing but them running to the middle and trying to look compassionate again. They will say that good people can disagree on the issues but once they are reelected they will never say that again.
This article goes through a few things. The fake face being put on by the Republican Party this week and also brings up the point that the truce in Najaf was done to get it off the front pages this week.
In God, and terror, we trust
The war in Iraq is part of the "war on terra". You're either with us, Republicans, or with the terrorists. Be afraid. Be very afraid. And count on us to deliver you from fear - somewhat. Fear not what you can do to support us, fear for the world if you don't.

Press Corps Keeps Anti-Kerry Distortions Alive
A group of Vietnam veterans called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth have managed to dominate campaign coverage recently with a series of inaccurate and unfounded allegations about John Kerry's Vietnam War service. But instead of debunking the group's TV ads and numerous media appearances, the press corps has devoted hours of broadcast time and considerable print attention to the group's message.
Perle on the problems at the Pentagon
2d probe at the Pentagon examines actions on Iraq
Richard Perle, a former assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration and current adviser to the Pentagon, said the investigations are baseless and politically motivated.
"It's pretty nasty, and unfortunately the administration doesn't seem to have it under control," said Perle, calling on the administration to defend Feith more vigorously.

"The Deafening Silence of the Religious Right"
Since GeeDubya is running on a platform that he says God told him to do what he has done with our country, one would think that those who are "blessed" to have God's ear, would be front and center stage, shouting at the top of their lungs about the "goodness of Jesus" and so on. Yet, there is silence coming from these individuals, and they won't be in attendance at the party for God's Own (so they think). Why is that?
Have you seen this?
Republican Rep. Ed Schrock of Virginia announces retirement following claims he is gay
Schrock, 63, cited unspecified allegations in a statement he released Monday as the reason he decided not to seek a third term for Congress. He said the claims "have called into question my ability to represent the citizens of Virginia's Second Congressional District."
I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.
I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.
God Bless You.
