You Must Now Fight For Your Rights

"Slick public relations campaigns, the collapse of public education—nearly a third of the country is illiterate or semiliterate—and the rise of amoral politicians such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who posed as liberals while they sold their souls for corporate money, have left us largely defenseless."
Below is a good article about taking a stand, Chris Hedges is one of my favorite writers and should be listened to. The Obama Administration has lost all credibility and should be impeached.

Power Concedes Nothing Without a Demand
by Chris Hedges

The liberal class is discovering what happens when you tolerate the intolerant. Let hate speech pollute the airways. Let corporations buy up your courts and state and federal legislative bodies. Let the Christian religion be manipulated by charlatans to demonize Muslims, gays and intellectuals, discredit science and become a source of personal enrichment. Let unions wither under corporate assault. Let social services and public education be stripped of funding. Let Wall Street loot the national treasury with impunity. Let sleazy con artists use lies and deception to carry out unethical sting operations on tottering liberal institutions, and you roll out the welcome mat for fascism.

We must be about the business of telling the powerful, go to hell, we will not take this anymore. See ya in the streets, tomorrow and next week stand with those who know that we are in deep shit and must stop the bleeding.

There's really not a lot of difference when you come down to actions rather than words. There's a new movie out that calls out Obama and the liberals who won't fight for the people's rights, I haven't had time to see it all yet but it looks pretty good:  http://911blogger.com/news/2011-03-12/lifting-veil

fighting terrorism since 1492 15.Mar.2011 12:30

the colonial whisperer

The Indigenous Peoples of Great Turtle Island, from the land of the Inuit to the land of the Incas, have been
fighting the terrorism inflicted on them by the christianized europeans, for over 518 years, and to lesser extent,
from judaism and islam. The Indian wars have never stopped, and our resistance is fertile.
1492 was a home invasion.
The colonials should take their own advice and go back to where they came from.
