    Meet The New Boss, Same As The Old Boss

    It's Over. NO IT IS NOT!

    The first amendment has been killed. Next, the second amendment. And soon, all rights will be gone. We bow to our great lord, corporation.  If you don't understand this, it is partly your fault. You'll pay for saying anything against them. Nothing is free... ...Goodbye, free...

    What ever happened to the Constitution?

    America was founded on principles, but now all principles of any kind have been thrown out the window. It matters how rich you are, not how you behave. Politicians can get away with everything if they have enough money and know the right people. They are above the law. Stop...

    Oh, my America. Falling apart at the seams, she is. No one knows how to darn or sew anymore. We just sit here and watch people on television do it. America also lets television speak her mind. How many times have you caught yourself repeating a pundit's rant, and wondered...
