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 war of unintended consequences :
During the past century the United States has faced two brutal assaults. Within four years of the first, on December 7 1941, the US and its allies had mobilised, taken on and defeated two powerful enemies, Japan and Germany. Four years after the second, on September 11 2001, what real progress can the US and its allies honestly claim for the war on terror?What a great comparison.
I Don't Think Daddy And Bill Can Bail Him Out Of This One
There are many things that happen when tragedy strikes but when times get tough a separation occurs. Some rise to the occasion and other's shrivel. When the President read off of his grocery list yesterday all I could think was that this man is an empty vessel. This time there is no one to invade and no one to blame. It is a situation that screams for leadership which this man incapable of providing. It seems simple enough to me, GET THE PEOPLE OUT OF NEW ORLEANS! NOW!
The New York Times says it all, Waiting for a Leader:
George W. Bush gave one of the worst speeches of his life yesterday, especially given the level of national distress and the need for words of consolation and wisdom. In what seems to be a ritual in this administration, the president appeared a day later than he was needed. He then read an address of a quality more appropriate for an Arbor Day celebration: a long laundry list of pounds of ice, generators and blankets delivered to the stricken Gulf Coast. He advised the public that anybody who wanted to help should send cash, grinned, and promised that everything would work out in the end.Our President has been in over his head for a long time now and it's really starting to show now.
