I've got some good stuff on CNN to post, but right now I'm too disturbed. Two articles I just read (and will post shortly) have me reeling --- literally mourning for the country we USED to be. It's gone, all of it. Our freedoms have been stripped from us when John Ashcroft hustled his insane "Patriot Act" through congress --- and he's not done yet --- he's waiting for war to unveil the new, improved "Patriot II" which will further strip us of rights we have had as citizens for over 200 years.
New Yorkers were not allowed to peacefully march in protest of this war. Ashcroft had a hand in that one too. Those who express opposition to this immoral war are routinely called "unAmerican" and much, much worse. Tens of millions of people around the world who marched against the war were reduced to "thousands" in the soundbites repeated over the airwaves by sneering, condescending Presstitutes.
We have an unelected "Leader" who is pushing our country (and the world) to the brink of destruction. Our elected Representatives have failed us --- signing Ashcroft's horrible bill WITHOUT EVEN READING IT. The rightwing media in this country is busily shredding the last of the remaining post-9/11 goodwill of the people of the world and, in the process, convincing vast numbers of Americans that "we don't need no stinkin' feriners".
It boggles my mind when I look back at the last two years. Simply amazing and stupefying. The list of atrocities is so long, so fast moving, that it really makes my head spin. I can't keep up.
that the Bushies were planning this war since before they stole the election,
but I guarantee you, 9 out of 10 Americans have no clue. Because our "Media" lies to us. The same Presstitutes that savaged Al Gore and knowingly spread lies and fabrications about him. They are to blame, they did this to us. CNN and Faux News were the leaders of the pack. They should be held accountable.
