To Blog or Not To Blog

To Blog or Not to Blog
The Blogosphere Insurgency MANIFESTO

As my tagline says I am an American citizen. I have an interest in current events, history and a fascination with the ever-dirty world of Politics. This Blog was started for several reasons. The first being my belief that the Mainstream Media for the most part has been compromised via corporate ownership, through media consolidation and vertical integration i.e. a handful corporate entities controlling all the media outlets and thus keeping a vise like grip over all information. Information that, I believe, makes for an informed citizenry and a healthy Democracy. It is also my opinion that these corporate entities will do anything to ensure that the status quo and profits are maintained and will and have censored or quashed any questioning or critique of the existing power structure.

The undeniable emerging power of the Blogosphere and its ability to drive the political debate as in the case of the Rathergate phenomenon or the proven falsification of the documents related to Pres. Bush’s military service or lack there of. If it were not for the Blogosphere, the whole Downing Street Memo affair would have been totally ignored by the Mainstream Media and what, I and an increasing number of Americans believe, was Bush’s decision to go to war, by any means necessary, long before the war was launched, would only be suspected and not documented and verified as it has been by the DSM. Truly, The Blogosphere is the digital equivalent of the underground press in the 1960’s that was extremely useful in the rallying of a generation and the bringing down of the repressive and corrupt Nixon regime.

I am no fan of the current administration or it’s policies. I will admit that I voted for change in the last election and was deeply dismayed that a little over half (no mandate mind you) was uninformed, misguided or just plain to damned stupid to see the half truths and plain lies for what they were.

Also, I sense a change coming i.e. the Bush Administrations fall from grace as any so-called "political capital" gained from the election has been thoroughly pissed away and Bush’s plummeting poll numbers show the majority of Americans are starting to see the monkey show for what it is. This slide, I do believe, will continue unabated, as Joe Six-pack and Suzy Housecoat see a lackluster economy sputter along with descent paying jobs leaving our shores, as the fiscal stability of the country is undermined from massive debt and the future of generations to come is mortgaged to the hilt for the benefit of the multinationals and special interests, and as Iraq continues it’s spiral into an aimless quagmire, as the Administration parades one new justification after another for this “Cluster” as the our brave men and women in the military bear the brunt for the lies, mistakes and blunders of this Chicken Hawk and his Neocon/Corporate handlers. With these reasons and other scandals to come, in time it will become glaringly obvious to even the most dimwitted Mullet sporting Red State Rube that this administration founded and sustained by a myriad lies, rampant incompetence and corporate profiteering is taking the nation down the road to ruin.

I will chronicle and offer my insight into the events as they happen. Check back often for additions and enjoy the ride as this lying Lame Duck, his administration and legacy circle the drain…. Because god knows I will.

What I sincerely cannot understand is why you invest so much energy into denegrating your own country, and seemingly none into condemning those that are dedicated to killing us and the lifestyle we (and you, presumably) enjoy.

Hey Suzie,

The last time I checked free speech was guaranteed by the constitution, but then again you right wing clowns will do anything to start up democracy everywhere else in the world and then shut it down here in the US all under the guise of supporting the Pres. and his ill thought out policies.

A recent study conducted by the Gov. found that Dubya's policies have helped to contribute to the quadrupling of Terrorism worldwide. It's a good thing that Iraq is now the frontline of the WAR ON TERROR…yeah right. Hopefully, the same won't happen here, but given Bush has cut funding to Frontline responders IE Police etc. it probably is only a matter of time. Don't you have something better to do than post on some "FRINGE ANTI-BUSH SITE"...like calling back your recruiter? He wants you to stand in for the Bush Twins in Iraq.

Hey Suzie,
Your beloved president blieves in "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth!" - who is a terrorist, those who bomb inicent people with tools that your tax dollars pays for(and I am sure you are so proud of this!) from 5000 feet above the air or those blow inicent people in a subway!

As Gandi(the anti-bush) said, "an eye for an eye leaves everyone in the world blind! Just like you are (blind!!)!

Wow, Joe! You must be really proud of the articulate and eloquent responses of your supporters on this blog. Indepth and thought-provoking insights like that are really making me re-think my position.
As for you...still no anger or harsh words directed at those who murder commuters or saw the heads off of hostages? Please enlighten us.

The anger and harsh words for those scumbags and the policies/Lies that Blair supported that helped bring this upon his people will be forth coming tonight. Unlike uniformed and misguided clowns like you, I have a job and have other obligations than to sit in front of THE FOX NEWS CHANNEL and try to memorize what the current Party line is to Parrot.

By the By, did you call your Recruiter yet, they still need you on THE FRONTLINE OF TERROR in IRaq
