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.

Iran, Nukes, The Says Handful and Ohio
Are we supposed to act like the last two years didn't happen? This man is a proven liar wants us to believe that he's telling the truth this time:
The United States has intelligence that Iran is working to adapt missiles to deliver a nuclear weapon, further evidence that the Islamic republic is determined to acquire a nuclear bomb, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said Wednesday.Look, there is one fundamental question that is never asked and therefore left unanswered. Why does Iran, or any country that doesn't have them want nuculear weapons? The reason it is a fundamental question is because of the way the non-answer is used. The non-answer is that eveyone just assumes that Iran or Syria or any country that doesn't have nukes is all of the sudden going to start nuking other countries if they get one. Therefore they cannot be allowed to have them. That is an incorrect assumption. Now the real answer goes back to Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) and the idea that nobody wins a nuclear war, remember the movie War Games? Or in this case their assured destruction. So why do these countries want nuclear weapons? Let's start with another question and answer first. Do you think we would have attacked Iraq if they could have proven they had a nuclear weapon? The answer is no. Why not? Because, like North Korea has shown, once you have one you are now a member of the club and have to be dealt with and therefore can no longer be invaded or shall we say pushed around. If Iran gets a nuke and they automatically used it on the US or Israel what would happen to them? You know the answer. That's why the question is never asked and answered. A nuke is an insurance policy against the ivaasioin of their country. That is why they want one. Also becoming an upper echelon member in the world club means you can now use the swimming poll and the tennis court. Remember if you can't invade Iran how can you steal their resources and turn their people into Insurg.. I mean their country into a capitalist democracy? So to recap they don't want a nuke to blow up the world, they just want to be left alone.
Call your US Representative, if he's an R, and see is he is a member of the Shays Handful.
Scary but true voting stories from Ohio
Hearings on Ohio voting put 2004 election in doubt
Most importantly, the testimony has revealed a widespread and concerted effort on the part of Republican Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell to deny primarily African-American and young voters the right to cast their ballots within a reasonable time. By depriving precincts of adequate numbers of functioning voting machines, Blackwell created waits of three to eleven hours, driving tens of thousands of likely Democratic voters away from the polls and very likely affecting the outcome of the Ohio vote count, which in turn decided the national election.
