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 Judges Made Them Do It
The need to shield judges from outside threats - including those from elected officials like Senator Cornyn - is a priceless principle of our democracy. Senator Cornyn offered a smarmy proclamation of "great distress" at courthouse thuggery. Then he rationalized it with broadside accusations that judges "make raw political or ideological decisions." He thumbed his nose at the separation of powers, suggesting that the Supreme Court be "an enforcer of political decisions made by elected representatives of the people." Avoiding that nightmare is precisely why the founders made federal judgeships lifetime jobs and created a nomination process that requires presidents to seek bipartisan support.If Republicans had any sense of decency left they would make this man leave office.
I couldn't agree more!
But as a person from a state with a crazed idiot Senator of his own (Santorum), I have little faith that the GOP will do anything.
They like the guys on the front line to be frothy, nuts, and blindingly ignorant of what it really means to be an American. Let alone a person of character, ethics, and honest morals.
At least that sure is how it looks to me from the cheap seats.
