Silence is Consent

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.
- Thomas Jefferson

Some interesting things
Chris Floyd, from Friday
Client State
The years of George W. Bush's sour misrule have been disastrous for many of his staunchest supporters. The Heartland folk have seen their jobs taken, liberties curtailed, communities withered, states bankrupted, prices hiked, schools neglected, pensions gutted, air poisoned, water tainted, and their children killed and maimed in an unjust war for profit that's made the world more dangerous. Yet still they swear allegiance to a leader whose every action -- as opposed to the honeyed hokum of his speeches -- expresses nothing but vicious contempt for those he governs.
This is just wrong. Did you read or see Catch-22?

"I had a son in October. I haven't met him yet," said Sgt. Eric Wing, 24. "I was mostly wanting to get home for him."

Some people compare a military deployment to a marathon--a task requiring physical and mental pacing. Under that comparison, the soldiers of the 2nd Brigade of the 25th Infantry Division had nearly completed their 26.2 miles when they found out they would have to run even farther.

"Like any soldier over here, we're all ready to go home," said Sgt. Matthew Yost.
I wonder if these two are related in any way?
