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.

I believe that one of the funniest tricks in politics is the one Tom DeLay is trying to get away with. This guy, "The Hammer", as he likes to be called is a no holes barred, win at any cost politician. But now, when the heat is on, we are being led to believe that Tom DeLay was just an innocent bystander in the doings of Texans for a Republican Majority (TRMPAC). Now to think that Mr. DeLay -- who needed a Republican majority in the Texas Legislature so he could redistrict Texas out of turn -- was not in the know about what his committee was doing much less running the show is naive. Which means this headline, Documents Suggest Bigger DeLay Role in Donations, is overstating the obvious. My larger point is that Whenever a politician is campaigning, like your President, they want us to think he is smart, hands on, and directing what should happen next. If they get in trouble though, like Dubya or Ronnie, it's a whole different story. All of the sudden they were not involved and out of the loop. So watch this, Tom Delay and Ronny Earle, from 60 Minutes on Sunday, if you haven't already. You can see my Congressman John Carter make an ass out of himself, if nothing else.
