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.

Far graver than Vietnam
"'Bring them on!" President Bush challenged the early Iraqi insurgency in July of last year. Since then, 812 American soldiers have been killed and 6,290 wounded, according to the Pentagon. Almost every day, in campaign speeches, Bush speaks with bravado about how he is "winning" in Iraq. "Our strategy is succeeding," he boasted to the National Guard convention on Tuesday.
Don't forget your President last year invited the resistance in Iraq to attack our soldiers. - LH

Woman interrupts Bush speech
A WOMAN wearing a T-shirt with the words "President Bush You Killed My Son" and a picture of a soldier killed in Iraq was detained today after she interrupted a campaign speech by first lady Laura Bush.
Police escorted Sue Niederer of Hopewell, New Jersey, from a rally at a firehouse after she demanded to know why her son, Army 1st Lieutenant Seth Dvorin, 24, was killed in Iraq. Dvorin died in February while trying to disarm a bomb.
Wouldn't a compassionate conservative engaged this women, asked about her son maybe? Remeber Iraq and Saddam Hussein had NOTHING to do with 9/11. - LH
Watch out what you put on your car, depending on where you work
Bumper Sticker Insubordination
The same is true of Lynne Gobbell of Moulton, Ala., who on Sept. 9 was fired from her job at Enviromate, a company that makes housing insulation, for driving to work with a Kerry-Edwards bumper sticker in the rear windshield of her Chevy Lumina. The person who did the firing was Phil Geddes, who owns the company and is an enthusiastic Bush supporter. (Although Gobbell hasn't done any proselytizing for Kerry at Enviromate, Geddes distributed a flyer to all Enviromate employees explaining why they should vote for Bush.) Here is how Gobbell related her story to Clyde Stancil of the Decatur Daily News:

Quiet Calls for Change
Scott Lewis, an Army Reserve sergeant home after 15 months in Iraq, spoke just a few words. "We need some new ideas in Iraq," he said. "People criticize John Kerry for changing his mind about Iraq, but I think that's actually a strength. And I'm a Republican."
