LAND OF THE FREE, AND HOME OF THE BRAVE? ISN'T THAT HOW IT GOES? YUP, THEORETICALLY...

QUOTE:

The Land of the Silent and the Home of the Fearful

By Dave Lindorff

The only demonstrably true statement George Bush
has made in his sorry eight years in office is that the
Constitution is "just a goddamned piece of paper." While
it wasn't the point he was making, when he reportedly
shouted this at a couple of Republican members of
Congress who were questioning the constitutionality
of some of his actions, he was right that the nation's
founding document is only worth the parchment and
ink it's composed of, unless people use it and defend it.

McCain: The Most Reprehensible of the Keating Five

The story of "the Keating Five" has become a scandal
rivaling Teapot Dome and Watergate

By Tom Fitzpatrick

You're John McCain, a fallen hero who wanted to become
president so desperately that you sold yourself to Charlie
Keating, the wealthy con man who bears such an incredible
resemblance to The Joker. He poured $112,000 into
your political campaigns. He became your friend. He
threw fund raisers in your honor. He even made a
sweet shopping-center investment deal for your wife,
Cindy. Your father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was cut in on
the deal, too. Continue

Rep. Dennis Kucinich: “Wake Up America!”

Rep. Dennis Kucinich

Former presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich
delivered one of the most passionate addresses Tuesday
night. “Wake up, America. We went into Iraq for oil.
The oil companies want more,” Kucinich said. “War
against Iran will mean $10-a-gallon gasoline. The oil
administration wants to drill more, into your wallet.
Wake up, America. Weapons contractors want more.
An Iran war will cost 5 to 10 trillion dollars.” Continue

War With Russia Is On The Agenda

By Paul Craig Roberts

Thinking about the massive failure of the US media
to report truthfully is sobering. The United States,
bristling with nuclear weapons and pursuing a policy
of world hegemony, has a population that is kept
in the dark--indeed brainwashed--about the most
important and most dangerous events of our time.

John McCain Discovers America

By David Michael Green

Our economy is in shambles, though the president insists
that the ‘fundamentals’ are just fine, and McCain’s former
chief economic advisor, Phil Gramm, told Americans
that there was no real recession going on and they should
just stop whining about it. Continue

America on the Couch

By Mike Whitney

America is a country badly in need of therapy. We don't
know who we are anymore; everything is topsy-turvy.
It's like we're suffering a national identity crisis and need
a turn on the couch. There's just been too much change
too fast and no one really knows what's going on. Even
stanch conservatives are in a daze from the daily overload
of bad news. Continue

Bye Bye Barry

By Joel S. Hirschhorn

The final results are in on this historic November day.
Despite the hundreds of millions of dollars he raised,
Barack Obama has lost the 2008 presidential election.
American voters have boldly spoken truth to arrogance.
Turned out that all those pre-election opinion polls
that showed Obama’s inability to get over 50 percent
support were prescient. Much of the public was never
comfortable with Obama, though he clearly was so
comfortable acting like he already was president.

"In our age, there is no such thing as 'keeping out of

Economic Free Fall?

By William Greider

The nation, meanwhile, is flirting with historic catastrophe.
Nobody yet knows how bad it is, but the peril is vastly larger

that the United States is now utterly dependent on foreign
creditors--Japan and China lead the list--who have been
propping us up with their lending. Continue
