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.

What a piece of shit Senator Mel Martinez is. The Only question I have for the Orlando Sentinel is, when this happens again will his third strike mean he's out?!
Media Matters does a day by day on how this right-wing lie gets spread. If anyone knows it's David Brock, Dissecting a right-wing smear. This is a case study on how all the wing-nut liars latch on to the same point. The funny part is that now that everyone knows they were wrong, dare I say lying, will they acknowledge it?
Thank God all of those Republicans in power are for a "Culture of Life" right? Hunger-Based Lines Lengthen at the Faith-Based Soup Kitchens
The budget debate in the Republican-run Capitol presents a Hobson's choice between the House's five-year, $30 billion-plus in program cuts for the poor and the Senate's $2.8 billion in cuts - one-tenth the pain, but focused most heavily on nutrition programs. The compromise cuts are likely to lean toward the House, levying more than their fair budget share on the poor, even as President Bush and the G.O.P. leaders argue that still more upper-bracket tax cuts are somehow justifiable.For some reason, call me crazy, I don't think would give tax cuts instead of helping the poor!
The Carpet Bagger Report takes it to Bubble Boy:
Bush’s very expensive bubble, which carefully shields the president from any kind of dissent, is pretty tough to pop. Nevertheless, the top two Dems in Congress are doing their level best to lure our shy president out of his shell to deal with Americans who aren’t pre-screened sycophants.Pelosi and Reid have a challenge for the "war" President
Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid sent the following letter to President Bush today, inviting him to participate in a National Town Hall on Social Security, to hear all sides of the debate. Democrats have been traveling across the country listening to the concerns of their constituents about Social Security privatization, holding hundreds of open town hall meetings. The Democratic Leaders would like to work with the President to ensure that he too, hears from those who oppose privatization, not just handpicked participants who support his plan.
