“We never see the smoke and the fire, we never smell the blood, we never see the
terror in the eyes of the children, whose nightmares will now feature screaming
missiles from unseen terrorists, will be known only as Americans.” : Martin
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing
no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this
invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and
corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today.” : President
Theodore Roosevelt - 1906
“A great industrial Nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of
credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation and all our activities are in
the hands of a few men.
“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely
controlled and dominated Governments in the world — no longer a government of
free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but
a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.” : Woodrow
Wilson - From his Campaign Speeches, 1912
“If a baseball player slides into home plate and, right before the umpire rules
if he is safe or out, the player says to the umpire — ‘Here is $1,000.’ What
would we call that? We would call that a bribe. If a lawyer was arguing a case
before a judge and said, ‘Your honor before you decide on the guilt or innocence
of my client, here is $1,000.’ What would we call that? We would call that a
bribe. “But if an industry lobbyist walks into the office of a key legislator
and hands her or him a check for $1,000, we call that a campaign contribution.
We should call it a bribe.” : Janice Fine - Dollars and Sense magazine

By Jim Abourezk

to expose members of Congress to only their side of the story.
The Living Dead
By Michael S. Rozeff
A hundred or more years ago, when philosophers declared God dead; when science
shook faith; when socialism postulated new ideals; when the U.S. pursued
national power; Americans turned away from the beliefs, ethics, and practices that had brought them
bounty. And now, after many years, we can see clearly, if we would or could,
that we made a wrong turn.

Bush's latest Latino poodle dog who was awarded the Mexican presidency in
fraud-marred elections last July, pumping the flesh with Latin American
boogeymen Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales.
