I'm pissed off. And judging from the polls, most of you are too. We're in a war without end that we don't want to be in, our economy is in the toilet, and we don't have healthcare. Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, the play was fabulous. Well not really, the Executive branch of our government has gone amok, the Constitution is in crisis and our democracy is hanging by a thread. Not only are we not too wild about our President, we like our Congress even less.


There is presently a serious possibility that America will come under martial law before the 2008 presidential election and be irretrievably turned into a totalitarian state. If this happens there won't even be a free election in 2008. We can and should eliminate this ominous threat to national security by impeaching Bush and Cheney now. But the man in charge, John Conyers, is afraid of what Fox News might say about him.

Dave Lindorff: Martial Law Threat is Real

The looming collapse of the U.S. military in Iraq, of which a number of generals and former generals, including former Chief of Staff Colin Powell, have warned, is happening none too soon, as it may be the best hope for preventing military rule here at home.



Why nail Gonzales so Bush can just pardon him? Does anyone think that he won't pardon him? It runs in the family. Why not go for the chief bananas of this republic, plus Gonzales?  



This won't go away, but it says a whole lot for our military, doesn't it? They have really ruined their reputations along with this criminal Bush GOP regime. How many other people have been killed by their own military service members? We know that many Iraqi people have been killed for no reason other than they were just there in front of a US gun. Rather than pursue a killer, the military just covers it up, as if they don't owe this family a thing, and if he hadn't been so well knowN, would the US military have ever been questioned? How far up did those orders to cover up come from, I wonder? But US military can go to jail promptly for being against Bush's invasion, and for just speaking out. Now they are after the protesters, too. Talk about morality. When are these treasonous dictatorial actions going to be challenged?


Congressional hearings are underway to reauthorize federal agriculture policy for 2007. Misguided federal policies currently favor agribusiness, and keep most farmers in a kind of indentured servitude, telling them they must use every fertilizer and additive available just to keep up with what is subsidized -- and their loan payments. Agriculture expert Michael Pollan ("The Omnivore's Dilemma") writes that the current system essentially launders federal money for big agribusinesses like Cargill and ADM.

Amy Branham: Issues

by Amy Branham

I'm tired of hearing about the next Presidential election already. I'm tired of hearing who has raised how much money and I'm really sick and tired of hearing about Hillary and Obama, Romney and Giuliani. I don't give a damn how much Edwards spends on a hair cut. I don't care how many wives Giuliani has had, and I really am not interested in Romney's religion or anything about Hillary. Frankly, I'm tired of the Bush/Clinton/Bush cycle and hope with every fiber of my being that we get out of that this election term.
