compiled by The Old Hippie Because To Give Up Would Be Fatal


In the hope that some are still trying to determine the current reality of our once great nation, still attempting to spread the "word" to others, even in the face of the successful, and "getting-away-
with-it-smirking," suppression of the flow of unfiltered information, and the arrogantly open use of propaganda within our nation, even while facing insane, unreasonable, and undeniable ignorance, apathy, and denial from so many fellow citizens.

"Leaving aside some of Bush's truly nutball twists of mind (like the idea that Egypt is about to show the way to democracy in the Middle East; never mind that they're currently under "emer-
