Dear PFC. Bradley Manning, Your honor and your courage has truly inspired me. I became interested in the truth when I was younger; I became semi-serious about the truth when I became a writer; and–now–I am completely serious about the truth today, thanks to you. You have inspired me to be a journalist. I believe […]Read More Letter to Bradley Manning
Dreams of nurturing bleed into my memory. Fantastic thoughts of silence educate my loss. So it was, and so it will be till I die. When I remember my place in a historical moment, and forget my place in the warmness of her heart.

George […]Read More Don’t worry anymore! George W. Bush says Prism is A-OK because he put it in there to protect the country. . .trust him!
Note: I wrote this years ago. Couldn’t get it published anywhere so I’m posting it here. ========================================================================================= I saw the traitor. He sat beneath me, his eyes fluttering nervously and his breathing erratic and short. Tears welled up in his eyes as his fate was proclaimed. This man was a traitor. He had sold us […]Read More Che Lives or the Execution

In every article that I read (or try to read) about the NSA leaks from the mainstream press, there is always a distinct focus on Glenn Greenwald, the reporter who broke the story, or Edward Snowden the whistle blower. Very rarely is there an article where the fact that billions of phone calls and internet […]Read More Why does the mainstream media keep missing the point about the NSA?
