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 rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.

"Karl Rove’s Master Plan: A One-Party America," for BuzzFlash.com by James Moore, Co-Author of "Bush's Brain"
While everyone analyzes and complains about his tactics, Karl Rove has his eyes on a grand strategy.
The Swift Boat Veterans for Lies is but a tiny piece of a schematic Rove has been carrying in his head since his salad days in Texas. Bush’s Brain will die happy the day he achieves his two greatest goals. The first of these is to turn the U.S. into what is fundamentally a one-party system.
