If the people of the US knew what’s being done in their name and with their tax dollars, they’d be literally up in arms. The corporate media, acting in furtherance of their owners’ class interests, do their best to keep us distracted, confused and impotent.

Dear, dear Kathy, Your very poignant writing makes me want to crawl on the asphalt, concrete, or gravel that will punish myself with. (And yes, Mom taught me not to end a sentence with a preposition.)
