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

By now I'm sure we are all getting very tired of the Jeff Gannon/James Guckert(JG/JG) affair. I have to admit I've taken delight in watching the wing-nuts take up for a homosexual/male prostitute that wrote for GOPUSA/Talon News whose columns were lifted from GOP documents verbatim for "news reports" and whose questions were inspired by Rush Limbaugh. The wing-nuts have also tried to say the whole prostitution part of the story is just the left going after his personal life when we all know that prostitution is the world's oldest profession. The most disturbing part of this whole story is not that he was allowed in and was able to do what he did. It's that none of the "crack White House Press corps(e)" had the wherewithal to "out" him, as a fake reporter, before the bloggers did. If I had gone to school, paid my dues, and done all the other things it takes to get into the "crack White House Press corps(e)" I would be pissed off to see a Republican shill jump right in and start asking questions. But I assume that once a reporter has paid those dues it's mighty nice there and if you rock the boat you'll be back on the street. So why are the bloggers forced to do this? That's the answer to this question, If journalists won't point out the liars, who will?
