"OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE" IS A DEAD MESSAGE. HUMBUG...! OH, REALLY? YOU'RE SURE ABOUT THAT, HUH?

QUOTE:

A Nation in Silent Anger

By Manuel Valenzuela

Can you feel the betrayal of millions who for decades have
been made to believe in the American myth of a nation
benign and altruistic, only to become aware that only
wickedness, greed and criminality define the Empire, that
beyond the smoke and mirrors America’s government is
ruthless, corporatist and concerned only for the interests
of the elite? Continue

"Are We Headed For Another Great Depression?".

My talks with Elaine Meinel Supkis

By Mike Whitney

Our empire won't retreat from its distant borders but these
same borders are bankrupting us for we never recovered
from the Vietnam War, we literally papered over the
mess which remained and continues to poison our nation.
The military/industrial complex is not making us rich, it
is making us poorer. And the paper being laid over all this
is the same paper the Germans used in 1924 to paper over
their own bankruptcy: printed money. Continue

We Soldiers Once Assumed Our political Bosses Would Not Lie To Us. That Is Over

By Leo Docherty:

We realised the issue was not replacing tyranny with democracy,
but gaining long-term access to oil. Blair, in bowing to
American oil-mad energy hunger, had deployed the British
Army on a lie, a much bigger lie than the one about WMDs.
Today, the appalling sectarian violence killing hundreds of
Iraqi civilians every week is the direct result of our invasion
and botched occupation. Continue

QUOTE:

We're All Responsible for Iraq

By James Reston

The hypocrisy toward our troops is another instance of moral
and political guilt. When a person flaunts his patriotism and
then tolerates the exploitation of soldiers, then that citizen is
morally culpable for that outrage and a participant in it. Continue

A Few Reminders

By Charley Reese

A few reminders: Iraq is not our country. Our invasion
and occupation are illegal, being in violation of both
international law and our own traditions. We were lied
into war. We are still being lied to. Both the Bush
administration and the Democrats intend to maintain
American troops in Iraq indefinitely. Continue

QUOTE:

The War on Free Expression

By Stephen Lenderman

A play on Thomas Jefferson's words might be that "All
tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good
conscience" to be denied their First Amendment rights
to speak, write and otherwise communicate freely and
openly without fear of recrimination in a state they want
to remain democratic but won't without that right. Today
our freedoms are jeopardized in an atmosphere of
heightened fear with too few people aware how threatened
their most important one of all is at a time there's risk
they all may be lost without a concerted effort to save
them. Continue
