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

Social Security is not broken and therefore does not need to be fixed

It looks like the sheep may be waking up, Army misses recruiting goal. There were are couple of interesting things in this article. First it looks like bribery isn't working anymore,
The February shortfall is especially worrisome because it comes as the Army is trying to lure recruits with the largest enlistment bonuses it has ever offered: up to $20,000 to some recruits willing to sign on for four years. The Pentagon has also been adding thousands of recruiters for the Army and other branches.
And Second because of this paragraph:
Doug Smith, a spokesman for U.S. Army Recruiting Command at Fort Knox in Kentucky, attributed the shortfall in part to competition from the improving economy and parents' fears that their children could be injured or killed in Iraq. As of Wednesday, nearly 1,500 U.S. service members had died in Iraq since the invasion in March 2003.
It just have one question. Why do these kids parents hate America? Isn't this a fight for the future of civilization. Good vs. Evil. Are they with the terrorists? Once again, if this fight is so noble, like WW II, wouldn't families be willing to sacrifice their loved ones for the future of civilization?

Shame on you Senators!
When Democrats Join the Dark Side

The trouble here is that the relationship each Democrat has with his home-state business interests is the relationship every Republican has with every business interest. The bankruptcy bill enjoys unanimous GOP support in the Senate. It's a familiar pattern: Noxious laws enjoy support from a coalition of all the Republicans plus a rotating handful of Democrats who have ties to interested parties. Almost all the Democrats are on the side of the angels on almost every issue. But it doesn't take many Democratic defectors to give the Republicans a majority.
A lesson in Hypocrisy from Chris Floyd.

Another crazy Texas Republican Congressman: "Nuke Syria".
