as i have been tooling around today- folks have been asking what predictions are for 2008 or what we'd like to see. i won't write that post- as i have written enough doom and gloom in 2007 and need a break for a bit. i will say- that my one hope and wish for the new year is that americans become more self sufficient- stop waiting for other folks to do for us; stop relying on other people to bring us news or do our work for us. we are not the pampered elite portrayed in the american dream with the picket fences around the mcmansions.
we need to ferret out the truth ourselves and not rely on media to give us the news. they haven't thus far- why would we think that they magically would start now? i mean if the ny times is hiring bill kristol- what does that say to me? the fcc is paving the way for even more media monopolization- so- we have to seek our own truth. we have to stand up against torture and tyranny and dictatorial oligarchy. we cannot send proxies. it has to be us if it is to be at all. we have no other options if we want to save enough democracy to rebuild freedom for our next generation. it has to be us- because it is obvious it won't be 'the other side.'
please take a moment and read voices- if americans knew
