t r u t h o u t - Cindy Sheehan | What Really Happened

What is happening to our nation? There is no good or evil. There is right and wrong and what happened last night was wrong. Part of me is not surprised but most of me is saying, "I cannot believe that this has happened."

"That's when the enormity of my loss hit me. I have lost my son. I have lost my First Amendment rights. I have lost the country that I love. Where did America go? I started crying in pain."

I totally understand Cindy. I totally understand.

It's disgusting an infuriating... I can't even spell correctly right now.

The fuckhead is here in Nashville today. Some of the managers went to support him.

How could anyone support such a monster?

It is more of a "state of emergency." I am in disbelief that anyone could support Bush anymore. I'm even concerned that he has MORE support from his die-hard wingnuts. My mom is one - she told me that Bush must know what he is doing since he has information we don't. YES - information illegally retrieved! I won't be surprised when one of us gets a visit from the feds about something we write on our blogs. It will happen.

It makes me sick...

I think it was funny that they also threw out that congressman's wife for having a tee-shirt that said support our troops!

I think we should take some tips from China on dissent, don't you?

The follow up to the story is that it's illegal, and has been for decades, to make political statements of ANY sort in the House Chamber. So I feel better that the "support the troops" lady got kicked out too.

I didn't know this fact until a little while ago, so anyhoos, those are the facts...

Yeah, it’s quite the little slice of heaven we have made for us in this nation.

People’s apathy scares me more than anything else.

I've been roughed up by police just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I think our freedoms are largely an illusion.

Heavy, heavy sigh.

For all practical purposes, the USA has been not much more than a police state since the McCarthy Era of the 1950's.

There are tons of "Executive Orders" - orders signed by the President - that have the force of Law.

The climate has gotten considerably worse than McCarthy's time, especially following 9/11.

But it could get far, far worse, if Mr. Monster decides to upgrade his "authoritah" some more - under the right conditions, he could probably make himself dictator for an undefined period of time.

Lincoln did during the Civil War when he suspended habeas corpus and basically imprisoned anyone who spoke out against the war.

However, if Mr. Bush were to do such a thing, he would likely have an ugly situation on his hands like King Georgie III did 230 years ago.

Unless of course, we have become such sheep that we find ourselves simply nodding wanly in agreement to the Dictates of Almighty W, and going about our daily business feeding at the teats of Wal-Mart and her sisters.

Channel that anger into action. Join the fight in any way that you can.

If we sit on the sidelines and do nothing, we don't have any right to complain.

Teddy Roosevelt said it best:

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910
