- If you took the time to watch the Boston
Legal video, the closing argument was very much addressing what is wrong
in America today.
- Boston Legal
here to play the video.
- Alan: Last night, I went to bed with
a book. Not as much fun as a 29 year old, but the book contained a speech
by Adlai Stevenson. The year was 1952. He said, "The tragedy of our
day is the climate of fear in which we live and fear breeds repression.
Too often, sinister threats to the Bill of Rights, to freedom of the mind
are concealed under the patriotic cloak of anti-Communism."
- Today, it is the cloak of 'anti-terrorism.'
Stevenson also remarked, "It's far easier to fight for principles
than to live up to them."
- In 1952, Adlai Stevenson was lamenting
that the fear of anti-communism was breeding unnecessary fear...that that
fear was being used to create oppression.
- The world used to look up to America,
but it has not for about the past 17 years...thanks to the sleaze of the
past three presidents and actions our government has put forth on the basis
- General Douglas MacArthur, who was born
and grew up in my former hometown of Little Rock, AR http://www.arkmilitaryheritage.com/
even warned Americans when he retired from the U.S. Army:
- "Our country is now geared to an
arms economy bred in an artificially-induced psychosis of war hysteria
and an incessant propaganda of fear."
- ~ General Douglas MacArthur
- Today, 'anti-terrorism' is indeed being
used in the same manner to create fear and oppression. It is being
used to literally change the fabric of this nation and the freedoms we
have always enjoyed under our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.
- If you dig deep enough, you can learn
all about Bridas Corporation and what our government did from 1993 through
October 2001 to take that Afghanistan pipeline away from an Argentine oil
and gas company.
- Why did we attack? Because of 9-11...and
if you do enough research on it, the Official Story can be proven in a
court of law to be The Official Lie.
- I must have skipped school when they
were teaching Cowering 101, for I refuse to surrender my freedoms in exchange
of being protected by Big Brother, especially when our Government proves
every hour of every day how inept it is at doing anything right. It
goes even further, for they cannot do anything honorable, decent, or with
honesty or integrity, either.
- If any protecting has to be done, I prefer
to do it myself for I know the government would screw it up.
- I chuckle when I receive an email labeling
me a 'Jew' (I am Christian, always have been), or a 'bleeding heart Liberal'
(I do not have Liberal ideas in my head, I'm quite Southern and very conservative).
My email updates seem to be educating many but at the same time they
are drawing out the worst in some who think the anonymity of the Internet
somehow grants them the right to be and let's call a spade a spade
a belligerent ass hiding behind a keyboard.
- Every poll shows that Americans clearly
know the Bush Administration and Congress are corrupt and not to be trusted.
But in this mid-term election year, many voters will blindly go to
the polls and re-elect the same thugs they know are corrupt. We have
become a nation that seems to be afraid of its own shadow, and we as citizens
do not do what the Founding Fathers intended when they formed a Republic
ruled by the citizens through the power of the vote.
- We hear the incessant talk about Mom,
family values, the flag and Christianity, all wrapped up in DC-doublespeak,
and fail to see that we have the government we deserve because we keep
re-electing them back into office. People clearly want change, but
they refuse to take the simple step of civics and send the thugs home,
cast them from power with the vote.
- A Third Party effort does not draw support,
it draws out the worst of both the Republicans and the Democrats to crush
anyone who would stand up for America and for the changes that are long
- I was raised by the premise, if a dog
bites me, the first time it is his fault; if the dog bites me a second
time, it is my fault. I have sent out requests for people to sign
certain petitions such as for FBI Translator Sibel Edmonds who furthers
the cause of truth. She can identify for the world who was behind
- 9-11 and it was not 19 wily Arabs. It
was foreigners and Americans. That is why Bush-Cheney put a gag order
on her, for they do not want Americans to know that Americans were behind
- It amazes me how many Americans send
back an email telling me they are afraid to join a petition because it
will put them on some list. Well, they are already on the damned
Big Brother list and have been since birth.
- "A government afraid of its citizens
is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of government is tyranny!"
- --Thomas Jefferson
- That in a nutshell is what is wrong with
America. We have let them supplant our Republic form of democracy
with tyranny, and most sit back and do nothing about it except bitch and
- Where is the outrage that 9-11 was done
to put this nation into a war mindset for the same idiotic, bogus 'Global
War on Terror' we see and disapprove of?
- Where was the outrage about the WMD being
fabricated regarding Iraq, and thousands of dead Americans, tens of thousands
wounded, hundreds of thousands exposed to DU?
- Where was the outrage about Abu Ghraib
and the torture, or torture at any other CIA / DoD prison for that matter?
- Where is the outrage that thousands have
been imprisoned as alleged terrorists but the 'government' has yet to convict
even ten of them?
- What are the thugs afraid of? They
are afraid that the falsehood of the 'Global War on Terror' would be exposed
if they let these people talk or have their day in court. The United
States government does not want you to hear the truth.
- Where is the outrage that they pass law
after law, voted on heavily by both sides of the aisle, undermining the
very Constitution they swore to uphold when they took office?
- Where is the outrage about CIA renditions?
Is it because Clinton-Gore started it and Bush-Cheney kept on doing it?
Are the Liberals afraid that such an admission will hurt them at
the polls in November 2006 and November 2008? If the truth hurts,
let it hurt...and then let the healing begin.
- Clean out Washington, DC! If you
want your country back on the right track, clean out Washington, DC.
- "Experience hath shewn, that even
under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in
time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."
- -- Thomas Jefferson
- We have had leader after leader try to
warn us - yet we have so many citizens with eyes that cannot see the truth,
and ears that do not want to hear the truth.
- "If Tyranny and Oppression come
to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
- -- James Madison
- Many are slammed, branded a heretic or
'un-American' or harassed for merely speaking out against the insanity
coming out of our government and the policies it makes to justify the actions
- In World War II, the French and English
were afraid of the growing German economic power and it had to be crushed.
Guess what, today Germany is an economic powerhouse compared to France
or England. It poses the question who really won that war?
- In Vietnam, it was the incessant fear
of the 'Communists' taking over Southeast Asia. Guess what?
- In Desert Storm, the George H W Bush
Administration fabricated the case to go to war. Why? Iraq
was becoming not a threat, but an embarrassment to the other Arab nations
in the region and building its nation into a Westernized European-style
country. The Royal Families of the other Arab Nations were afraid
that their citizens might start demanding more than the crumbs they get
now. Former Iraq Ambassador April Glaspie is still under a gag order
so she cannot tell about the falsification of Desert Storm.
- Is the world a better place thanks to
George H W Bush? Not hardly. Hundreds of thousands of veterans
are being ignored and their lives are ruined because they were sent to
die, be maimed or have their health ruined all for a lie.
- In Bosnia, this nation sat idly by as
many were slaughtered until Clinton ran into his peccadillo regarding Monica
Lewinsky, then he decided to intervene to stop the ethnic cleansing. Guess
what? They never did convict Slobodan Milosevic.
- Is the world a better place thanks to
Bill Clinton and Al Gore? Not even close. We just polluted
another nation with DU and really did not accomplish anything.
- In Afghanistan, we took over a pipeline
with military force following 9-11. Our government does not want
you to know that.
- In 'Iraqi Freedom', the entire world
knows that Bush lied and many have died. Many more will die thanks
to the DU pollution we have liberally spread around the entire Middle
- Is the world a better place thanks to
George W. Bush? Do I feel safer with Mighty Mouse George in the White
House? Not even for a second, but I will not submit to fear.
I skipped Cowering 101 in school.

for temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." ~ Benjamin
- There is an event coming up in April
in Washington, DC, and if this nation truly wants to start implementing
change about 1 to 3 million US citizens that are not veterans need to go
and stand up with our veterans.
- Washington, DC is already panicking about
this upcoming event because they know it will shed light on their wrongdoing
for the entire world to see.
- Legislators Attempt To Head-Off
Veteran's March On DC
- By Staff Writer: Rick Townsend
- March 17, 2006,
- Lawmakers in our nation's capitol are
attempting to pacify this country's veterans and supporters of an upcoming
grassroots veterans' affairs demonstration planned for Washington, DC
- On April 25th & 26th Operation Firing
For Effect The Veteran's March will kick off a March and Rally in
opposition to proposed future cuts in veteran's services, and increases
in retired military health care cost. The demonstration will be held on
the U.S. Capitol steps and will address a wide variety of issues which
affect the future of veterans' affairs in this country. Thousands of veterans
and their family members are expected to attend the Rally, which will begin
at 8 am at the West Lawn of the Capitol building.
- Over the past 90 days there has been
a groundswell of Bills and Resolutions introduced addressing several veteran
and retired military issues. >From real legal representation for veterans
filing claims with the VA, to efforts to block TriCare health coverage
increases, our elected officials are scrambling to defuse growing anger
and discontent within this country's former military community.
- The Military Retirees' Healthcare Protection
Act, H.R. 4949, if passed, would prevent increases in TriCare enrollment
fees and pharmacy co-pays. This single Bill would affect over 3 million
military retirees and their families. H.R. 4914, if passed, would permit
veterans to hire an attorney when they disagree with a benefits claims
decision of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Currently, veterans
are not allowed to hire an attorney until the end of the administrative
appeals process, specifically, after the Board of Veterans Appeals has
rendered a decision. In addition, there is a 72.4 billion VA supplemental
funding bill in Congress. And yet another Bill would define veteran's health
care funding as a "Cost of War" to be addressed in the Department
of Defense budget. In short, the word "veteran" has been mentioned
more times in the past 3 months, than the past 3 decades.
- Organizers of Operation Firing For Effect
The Veteran's March are convinced their efforts to unite this country's
veterans has resulted in this recent flurry of activity and posturing on
- Vietnam combat veteran, Gene Simes is
the Chairman of Operation Firing For Effect The Veteran's March.
Simes said, "The introduction of these new Bills is not a coincidence.
Our elected officials are very aware of our plans and they know we are
- Event Co-Chairman, Gulf War One combat
veteran, James North explained The Veteran's March and Rally this way,
"Our objectives are very simple and straight forward. First, we want
to draw public awareness and media attention to serious problems facing
our former military personnel and their families. Second, we want to send
a message to our Congress and Senate demanding Veterans' Affairs issues
take precedence over special interest issues. Third, we want to send a
message to our deployed troops that we support them and they can count
on us to fight for the protection of their earned benefits and services.
Forth, we want to improve the State of Veterans' Affairs in this country
in an effort to increase enlistment and improve retention in the U.S. military,
thus preserve our all volunteer military. Fifth, we want to provide our
former military personnel and their families a voice in matters that affect
them," North said.
- Vietnam combat veteran and noted veteran's
rights advocate, Jere Beery is Public Relations Director for the Rally.
"I really don't think many Americans will be pacified or fooled by
the recent and sudden pro-veteran activity on Capitol Hill. We have to
influence the overall mindset of the entire Congress and Senate, and that
will take a great deal more than a couple of showboat Bills," Beery
- Jim North agrees with Beery. "The
problems facing our veterans will only be solved when the American people
demand our government provide and protect the benefits and services earned
by our troops. If we can find billions of tax dollars for Mars exploration,
surely we can find adequate funding for our veterans," North said.
"It's a simply matter of priorities," North added.
- Gene Simes and James North are very confident
of a good turn out in DC. "We are providing an opportunity for the
American people to voice their concerns about the future of veteran's affairs.
Our April 25th Rally will be merely the beginning of a much bigger movement
to insure veteran's issues take precedence over all special interest issues.
This is the message we are taking to Washington, DC," Simes stated.
- In a related story, yesterday the U.S.
Senate voted down Stabenow Amendment 3141 requiring mandatory funding for
veteran's health care. (46 YEA votes, to 54 NAY)

or put up with before you speak out?

to wake up and say enough is enough?
