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.

Not A Coincidence
The last time our current president's poll numbers were this low and his domestic agenda was tanking something horrible happened. Most Americans don't remember that part of the pre-9/11 Bush Administration. The "s"elected president was having problems until then. It's hard to remember what life was like back then, right? But we probably wouldn't have had tax cuts and more tax cuts, and definitely not the Patriot Act without it. As far as most Americans were concerned it was all just a coincidence.
Well it's almost four years later, the beginning of a new term, our president's poll numbers are low and his domestic agenda is tanking. That's deja-vu all over again as far as I'm concerned. If the American people bought it once they'll buy it again. What Batman are we up to now? I've lost count. I will not be surprised if something horrible happens again, will you? I'm not predicting something here, I'm just saying I won't be surprised if something does happen. As Thom Hartmann recently pointed out, this administration is out for one thing, raw political power. They currently have lost that political power, I even saw Karl Rove on TV yesterday it's gotten so bad. The only question, I believe, is to what length will they go to get it back? So before the new product roll out in September keep all of this in mind:
Why did the Administration wait until September to make its case against Iraq? White House chief of staff Andrew Card told The New York Times last week, ``From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August.''If it happens again, it's definitely not a coincidence.
