http://www.nationinstitute.org/tomdispatch/index.mhtml?pid=233 I'm not sure why our Government would like to keep us in the dark about which corporations helped the Iraqi's in thier quest to develop 'weapons of mass destruction' as they are called now. Look at the date on this article from Truthout
"There's an old saying in Tennessee—I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee—that says, fool me once, shame on—shame on you. Fool me—you can't get fooled again."
U.S. President George W. Bush, Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002
I doubt that Mr Bush is a moron. Misguided corporate greedhead ... Have you read "Fortunate Son" By Jim Hatfield? It is a really well documented, well written book that portrays him as anything but stupid. Could Bush be a sociopath? Yeah, I know it sounds a bit over the top, but give it a read if you have the time. It covers Mark Crispin Miller's book " Bushes Dyslexicon" as well and offerers a chilling insight.
Here's where you need to go to listen to what is happening this Martin Luther King weekend in DC, events around the Peace Rally. We listened to NPR as well as DC Indy Media during Bushes Inauguration, I lost all faith in NPR. Indy Media spoke of all the anti-Bush folks gathered at Liberty Plaza and you know he drill, each president gets out there and walks for a bit - well BUSH DIDN'T. He got out a few blocks away. NPR never mentioned this discrepency with tradition or its reason. So yeah, NPR is good for Prarie Home Companion and This American Life but otherwise- Corporate News
Daily Audio News sources: Amy Goodman's "Democracy Now!" is great, as are "Pacifica's Peacewatch" and "Free Speech Radio News." Along with my favorite weekly internet radio news show "Counterspin" All at WebActive. Now that's easy , all in one place. Give 'em an ear.
A final quote from Aldous Huxley taken out of an article from FAIR.
"There is, of course, no reason why the new totalitarianisms should resemble the old," Huxley foresaw. He observed that "in an age of advanced technology, inefficiency is the sin against the Holy Ghost. A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers. But their methods are still crude and unscientific." Written in 1946 (the FAIR link goes to it, they produce the show "Counterspin"- check thier homepage out too. )
