A phenomenally good investigative journalist...

...needs YOUR help!

Forgive the fundraising post, but Robert Parry's virtually unique Consortium News site (peruse it here) needs financial help.

I can't tell you how many times I've heard, "Yeah, everything sucks, but what can I do?"

Well, here's what you can do: give some money to someone working on actually bringing facts and rational analysis to an increasingly wide public.

Without breaking through the informational barriers in our society, nothing will change. As should be clear to everyone now, the Democrats will not save us, even with the White House.

I'll make the obvious pun: If you don't like the thrust of our media-political system, Parry it!

I have just bought his latest book, Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush. I have read his other books, and they are top-notch. This is my Xmas gift to myself and to my wife! Of course, if you can give more, please do.

Donations are tax-deductible; honest and dedicated investigative reporters…

Hugo Chávez Public Address in NYC (September 17, 2005)

Make up your own mind; here's a full speech by The Second Most Evil Human on the Planet. Click on the title of this post for various audio options. Of course, you don't need to listen to this, as it was carried on all mainstream media outlets with entire accuracy.

Especially the part of the speech in which Chavez admits making a mistake in over-reacting in his oratory to attacks by the Bush crew on himself or Venezuela. Clearly, this relates to the UN speech -- and I bet you can't find any reporting of this admission anywhere in the mainstream media.

“What Would Jesus Buy?”: As Holiday Buying Frenzy Begins, New Film Tracks Anti-Consumerism Gospel of Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping

Happy Black Friday. Keep shopping -- don't worry about the global warming effects of mass-produced, globally distributed pointless products, losing jobs in America, Wal-Mart killing independent stores, sweatshop/slave-labor produced products. It's Christmas season, after all. Burn all that electricity to compete with your neighbor; Jesus will want all of us for a sunbeam once the Rapture comes....

"Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act" Raises Fears of New Government Crackdown on Dissent

The bipartisan attack on the already-dead republic continues...America continues shopping. Thank you, Jane Harman (D-CA).

This bill focuses on the internet, especially on net neutrality: tier the internet to block or very much slow anything that falls under the very vague (purposely so) definitions about "extremism" or "terrorism."
