Why We Blog?
It is simple...it is for the People, for their rights, liberties, and justices. It is because we have pledged our allegiance to the republic for which it stands.
When there is a constitutional crisis facing the United States it becomes necessary that every American learn about it.
When the world watches as the folks in New Orleans drown and the President strums his guitar there needs to be questions.
When FEMA says it will stop payment for hotel rooms across the country for 12,000 families made homeless by last year's storms, everyone needs to know.
When an UN inquiry says the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, which at times amounts to torture, violates international law it is necessary to inform folks.
When the whopping budget deficits that the Bush Administration has ballooned via the tax cuts for the wealthy demand draconian cuts in 141 domestic programs, led by a $36 billion cut in Medicare spending for the elderly over the next five years, people need to know about it.
When Cheney orders Libby or others to leak classified information pertaining to the War in Iraq to reporters in an effort to bolster the Administration's claims about weapons of mass destruction, the people need to know.
It is for humanity, pure and simple.
