Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Congressman Calls for Blackout of News from Killing Fields of Falluja to Protect Us from Truth

KAIT - Jonesboro, AR: Fallujah Video has congressman calling for reporter ban:
"CAPITOL HILL The videotaped shooting of a Fallujah combatant by a U-S Marine has evoked strong emotions in the Arab world and on Capitol Hill.

Texas Democrat Sylvestre Reyes (sil-VEHS'-tree RAY'-uhs) says it's time to rethink the presence of embedded reporters in combat zones. During a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee, Reyes compared it to a football game, saying 'we don't want to know everything that's going on on the field.' Reyes says this is not censorship. In his words, 'We should not be providing the Al-Jazeera the kind of propaganda they've had the last couple of three days.'

Marine Corps commandant General Michael Hagee disagrees, saying embedded reporters have actually worked very well and inform the American public about 'what these great young Americans are doing over there.'"
