Nurse Ratched has a press release concerning the Virtual March on Washington. Be sure to e-mail the info to your non-blog reading friends. It is a simple way to do something good for people willing to give their all for our country; while waking up the folks in power to the reminder that Patriotism includes caring for the troops, not merely exploiting them.
Did you know that a US Marine of the rank of Private or Corporal , ranks that make up a majority of the Corp, brings home less than 10,000 dollars a year? I knew our service people are not getting rich but this is shameful. If a Marine Corporal is married, or married with kids his pay would have his family ranked as 'poor' by US Census Bureau standards.
Over at Blah3 we see that Mandy Kleinburg who lost her husband Allan on September 11 as he worked at the World Trade Center on the 89th floor is calling for support in getting full disclosure from the White House of materials pertinent to the official 9/11 investigation.
Read Ms Kleinberg's testimony to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States. We have spoken of her bravely advocating for the truth in this matter before
Here is contact information for the commision:
National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
301 7th Street, SW
Washington, DC 20407
Here is the web address of 9/11 Citizens Watch, a group advocating the full investigation of that horrific event and all that surrounds it.
Thanks to The Memory Hole plain people like you and me can access the documents of the Congress' Joint Inquiry into 9/11- materials that, oddly enough contain information, much of it previously published, that the Bush Administration would like to make retroactively "classified" so as to keep secret.
William Rivers Pitt offers a bit of 9/11 history, a bit of context as to the "why" part of the equation. The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States should be free to judiciously look into the circumstances arund the events of 9/11; it will be offering to history the "how" concerning those earth shaking events, events that have come to shape the very foundations of what it is to be American. Think PATRIOT act. Think "pre-emptive attack on the evil forces that perpetrated 9/11" sic. The present regime has used the horror of 9/11 to change the mental and spiritual landscape of America. We need the truth. It will help us to claim our country back.
Call and write. Bush and Company have seemingly slid out from under the pall of their intimate connection to Enron. They have gotten away with an attack on a small poor oil bearing nation thats population consists half of children. They are putting our environment up to the highest bidder and starving our economy with war on the back of tax cuts to the rich.The list goes on.
This inquiry can open peoples eyes to the attitude of money over Patriotism, cash over country- Profits over people.
It might sound dramatic but it is true: We need to have history reflect the truth both to wake people up to the present political reality here in America and to save future generations. Please call. Write. Read and share what you learn; talk to everyone you know. We can source the basis of our concerns to popular media, this is no "conspiracy" subject- let the facts speak. Our world has been profoundly effected. We really can make a difference.
The White House Phone Numbers:
Write Mr Bush and Mr Cheney. You know who represents you in Washington.
We can make a difference.
