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.

It Only Matters The Day You Sell It
As this Social Security fight heats up it is good to keep in mind that there will be swings in the debate but the only thing that matters is what the vote is on the day it happens. Like my Father has always told me about the stock market, "There's only two days that the price of your stock matters, the day you buy your stock and the day you sell it". In other words all the prices of the stock in between didn't matter. Now, back to Social Security. So some days it may seem like no way Bush will get his plan passed and other days it will look like smooth sailing for his plan. The only time it will matter is on that day when they finally vote on whatever plan is on the table at that time.
Also remember that many different things may have happened by then. Remember, as Ms. Rice said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon; that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile". In other words who ever would have thought 9/11 would have happened and all the opportunities for this administration to put things over on the sheeple in this country. Even though she later said, "I believe the title was, "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States." Showing that they knew the attack was coming. You're going to see things like this, Top GOoPer says Bush's plan is dead and then a reply from the White House, White House brushes aside Social Security criticism. This is an attempt to take your eye of this subject. To make you believe that since the Republican chairman of the Ways and Means Committee says it's dead then you no longer have to worry about it. Don't believe that for a second. The plan is to kill Social Security and has been since it was first passed. In this administration and it's followers minds the fight will not be over until Social Security is dead.
