Earth to Al Gore....
(2 comments) I'm beginning to believe all this "effort" of yours isn't about our future at all, but about yours Al. I hate concluding this. What are you doing Al. We don't need to be educated. We already are. We get it. We got it five years ago. We need someone willing to step up and to take the power.

A man without a country; The price of Truth.
(5 comments) 9/11 was the beginning of the end of both the United States as we thought we knew it, and of any sense of loyalty I would feel in the end. Take note of the word "thought", for over time, I have learned that everything I knew, or thought I knew about my country, was simply wrong; a lie.

Why no one in the media will tell you the obvious and what should be done.
(1 comments) The "mainstream media's" "interests" are the true fountainhead from which all that has been committed against the American people has prospered in it's murderous perversity.

Six puppets, one flower child, and an angry old bastard who really should be your President.
(18 comments) "The only thing worse than soldiers dying in vain, is more soldiers dying in vain" The debates last night were like watching paint dry but for the presence of Mike Gravel, former Senator from Alaska.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi: this is pathetic, heartbreaking and treasonous. You MUST relieve Bush of command.
(8 comments) The ONLY way you "own" the results in Iraq, is if you allow this to continue. You have, and at this point, if you fail to act, you will indeed own the outcome, for you will have endorsed Bush's actions by default.

The slaughter of 32 innocents April 16th in Virginia would have been called an "improvement" in Iraq.

And yet this man is still employed by Fox "News"
(3 comments) How many times has O'Reilly lied, distorted, attacked rape victims, gays, Mexicans, women, hurricane victims, child rape victims, slandered political opponents, and in some cases actually called for the deaths of named political enemies? Mediamatters.org has collected SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINTY SEVEN instances, word for word, all documented.

The only solution for Iraq is one which has never been discussed.
The Iranians can be dealt with and must be. But first the American people are going to have to understand that not only does Bush have to go, but so does the idea of claiming the oil for Chevron and BP. The alternative to accepting this is going to be unimaginable and ultimately will completely destroy what little is left of the United States as a Democratic Republic with relations with other nations. It just won't fly.

Don't cry for Scooter; why he's going to be just fine (but you're not).
The key neo-cons within both parties intent on continuing the decimation of your civil liberties and continued construction of a monstrous policy of interventionism for the corporate interests who stand to profit, are being protected. The partisan politics of Bush's "failures" are both shallow, and useful as diversionary cover for an unseen agenda by a so-called "global elites" from both parties.

9/11: If I knew nothing else about it, I'd know this.
(5 comments) I want to talk about Bush, Cheney, and what they've done SINCE 9/11. Because if I knew nothing else about 9/11, I'd know this: Their "conduct" has demonstrated a number of things which are now beyond debate in this country by anyone serious:

Want to End the War Right Now? Subpoena Cheney
Senate resolutions condemning Bush's escalation are not only ineffectual, they waste precious time as a rogue administration stands ready and willing to plunge America into another world war to insulate itself from prosecution.

What Al Qaeda's post mid-term elections propaganda really means
(8 comments) Al Qaeda knows it's ambitions in Iraq are absolutely dead if the United States leaves. Al Qaeda wanted the U.S. to topple Saddam, as every scholar who knows anything about the Middle East knows. The USA has been fighting exactly the war Bin Laden wants us to fight, and so long as we are there, Al Qaeda is winning. Bin Laden's worst nightmare at this point, would be for the United States to withdraw, and focus on Afghanistan.
