The Silence is Deafening

It's 2 weeks til D(ecision) Day.

D for Democracy Day? Guess we'll be waiting to see what happens.

The Chicago Tribune endorsed W today, for his commitment to keepin the country "safe," in the words of John McCain, makin sure we leave a better and safer tomorrow for our children.

WHO's feeling safe these days? Not me.
Been having nightmares about hydrogen bombs wiping out the eastcoast.

"Pounding" resistance cores in Fallujah. This builds democracy? I guess that's why Karzai doesn't care if only 20% of Afganistan was able to vote in the presidential election last week.

I wonder how many Iraqi's will be left by the time January rolls around and their elections take place.

I've been reading Arundhati Roy's latest book, An Ordinary Person's Guide to Empire. In it, she says:

''Free elections, a free press, and an independent judiciary mean little when the free market has reduced them to commodities available for sale to the highest bidder."

I wonder what free elections, free press, and independent courts really mean in this day & age to the free market-crazed in the white house, the press rooms, and the board rooms...

Check out for peeps who are redefining what free elections and democracy really should mean.

peace out.
