"You Can't Handle the Truth!"


People...

The following stories have pushed me over the edge: I can't take it anymore.


The Republican Agenda for 2006: Tax Cuts for a Favored Few
($69 BILLION!)

NSA has massive database of Americans' phone calls

("The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.")

So...fuck it...I've reached maximum density with the latest news from Bushworld. Every single day...is a freakin' onslaught.

Iraq, Iran, the return of the Taliban in Afghanistan, war profiteering, Plamegate, Hookergate, $4 gas, Dick, Don, Tom and Condi, domestic surveillance of "left-wing" organizations, immigration reform, reform of any kind, the "new" cold War, FAUX, HUD, Santorum, Hastert and Frist - the what commission?! - Rove, Rove and Rove, yada yada yada, blah blah blah.

On top of that...Skull & Bones has Geronimo?!

I've come to the conclusion that - and, please, excuse my French - they're gonna continue to fuck us in the face...they're gonna continue to take as much money from the National Treasury as is humanly possible...and they're gonna set up the next few money making schemes (natch wars)...until we wake the fuck up and run these lizard-people out of DC.

It's out of control...and I've lost the ability...to be eloquent.

On that note, a few words from Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Goodguyland):
By controlling what you know, they hope to control what you think.

It is the solution to their Iraq dilemma. You don't have to mislead people, as the President did, if the American people simply do not know at all.

That's what this assault on free speech is all about.

The President and his Administration are doing everything possible to impose censorship. They know that secrecy is the fastest, most effective way to silence dissent.

Before us are two choices: the free flow of information, or the outright control of information.

America is strong because of the protections within the free flow of information--it's our First Amendment to the Constitution.

But the President and Republican majority want to tell you what to think through the outright control of information.

Geoffrey R. Stone, author and law professor at the University of Chicago, wrote an article in the New York Times the other day called "Scared of Scoops."

As the writer points out, the Administration's primary tactic is intimidation.

When in doubt, they try to make you afraid.

When unpopular, they try to make you afraid.

When they are losing their hold on power, because of their record, they intend to make you afraid.

The only reason you know this President has no energy plan for America is because he can't hide the price of gasoline at the pumps.

He'd make it a secret if he could, so don't be surprised if the President tries to classify the price of gasoline as a national security matter.

In a nation where free speech is the last line of defense against absolute power, they don't want you to know, because the more you know, the worse they look.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: When some of our leaders (and media folk) start sounding like Prof. Chomsky? There's still hope.

More later...
