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.

Time To Play Catch-Up
Iraq is still a major mess, no matter that the MSM doesn't see fit to talk about it anymore. Juan Cole has this weekends news from there. He also has a post about a conference call with bloggers that Wesley Clark had today. Remember there is still a War Going On In Iraq.
There is a question everyone needs to know the answer to. That question is, If Tom DeLay is the most powerful Republican in the House of Representatives why didn't he become Speaker of the House after Newt Gingrich was forced to resign? It's because the Republicans know that every day that Tom DeLay's face is on the TV or on the front page is a good day for the Democrats. Tom DeLay does the ugly, corrupt, illegal work of the Republican Party. If he is being exposed than the whole party is being exposed. That is why I believe his days are numbered. One reason is because he got the kiss of death from Cheney over the weekend, Cheney Calls DeLays Conduct Inappropriate. Sooner of later, when it becomes obvious that he cannot win reelection, he will resign so they can get a Republican in his seat before the next election. It may be sooner than you think, DeLay is losing support, poll finds.
Why media ownership matters
Americans believe these lies not because they are stupid, but because they are good media consumers. Our media have become an echo chamber for those in power. Rather than challenge the fraudulent claims of the Bush administration, we've had a media acting as a conveyor belt for the government's lies.Republican Senator Lies
WMD Commission Continues the Stonewall for Bush
On Thursday, President Bush's commission on weapons of mass destruction intelligence released a 692-page report that harshly criticizes the US intelligence establishment. It notes that "the Intelligence Community was dead wrong in almost all of it pre-war judgments about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. This was a major intelligence failure." That's no news flash. The Senate intelligence committee issued a report last July that said the same. But like the Senate committee, Bush's commission--cochaired by Judge Laurence Silberman, a Republican, and former Senator Chuck Robb, a Democrat--ignored a key issue: whether Bush and his aides overstated and misrepresented the flawed intelligence they received from the intelligence agencies. As I wrote about days ago, Senator Pat Roberts, the Republican chairman of the intelligence committee, promised last summer that his committee would investigate the administration's prewar use (or abuse) of the WMD intelligence after the 2004 election, but more recently Roberts backed away from that vow, claiming such an inquiry would now be pointless.Pointless for corrupt Republicans like yourself Senator. It's very important for the American people, like myself. It's all Curveball's fault.
