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.

The New Chair
I am very happy to Have Howard Dean as the Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The reasons I like him is because he is not afraid to say what he means and in a party chair I don't think they have to parse their words as much. His job is to rally the troops. I also think another attribute that he has is that he already has a grassroots organization in place which gives him and the party a good base to start from. Another quality that he has is that he is frugal. I remember when he was still in the Presidential race the stories going around about how cheap he is. I think having someone who is wise with money in this time and place will be an asset. I also think that those who perceive Dean to be this raging liberal leftist, mostly Republicans and conservatives, will find that to be incorrect. Overall I think Dean was far and away the best choice of those running. I also hope all those who ran will rally to help this chair. I would really love to see many of them involved like Simon Rosenberg, Donnie Fowler and Wellington Webb. All of us need to get/stay involved as well. Write a letter to the editor, get involved locally and you can also contribute financially, see below. I believe the future is bright with our new leader but we all need to help in any way we can.
