Censorship in Our Time

If you are at all interested in politics, censorship, or the power of a family to squelch a story, go to today's special broadcast/transcript on Democracy Now about the book Fortunate Son which the Bush family literally had burned (yes, burned) during the early part of the 2000 George W. Bush campaign for President.

The way the Bush family has covered up GW's crimes and whitewashed the criminals of the Regan and Bush I administrations (and brought back many of the same officials who were found guilty of crimes in those presidencies) smacks to me of the troubling and disgusting people who say that we survivors "make up" the abuse. The false memory syndrome people have been proven wrong, yet they keep bringing the stuff up. Bush keeps bringing the lies about the war and about his presidency before the people while ignoring the difficult truths in the past.

So, there's my rant for the day.
Wishing you peace and calm, even though I don't have much of it above,
