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.

Moral Values and Hypocrisy

Moral values in voting and in practice
Believe it or not, the crazy liberals of Massachusetts have the lowest divorce rate in the country, even though they tend to care more about secular issues such as the economy and healthcare than "moral values" when voting in a presidential election.

Rule change to shield DeLay
Republicans have used Democrats? ethical lapses, including a check-kiting scandal at the House bank, to their political advantage. In 1987, then-Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) told The Washington Post: ?[You] now have a House where it is more dangerous to be aggressive about honesty than it is to be mildly corrupt. ? We have in Wright, [Majority Leader Tom Foley (D-Wash.)] and Coelho a third generation of Democratic leaders, the first that has never served in a minority. ? You now have a situation where I think people feel almost invulnerable.?What a difference 17 years makes. None actually just switch the D for an R at the end of the names and it is the same game.
