Something a little more serious....a lot more serious

David Hicks still remains in Guantanamo. The Australian government have down nothing to help him. They have colluded by their silence. Please sign the petition to try to bring each of these illegally held prisoners a little closer to some form of justice. This situation is apalling.

as Molly Ivins wrote .."What happened to the nation that never tortured? The nation that wasn't supposed to start wars of choice? The nation that respected human rights and life? A nation that from the beginning was against tyranny? Where have we gone? How did we let these people take us there? How did we let them fool us?For more of Molly's posting follow this link "
This is the question we should be asking now? How did we let this happen to us?

It is the same question we must ask in Australia and the UK.

Robyne, neither link worked. I'm not sure why, but neither the petition nor the link to Molly Ivins worked.

But the question is almost unanswerable: what happened to America? It actually began with the Reagan "revolution" and his brand of ultraconservatism. And I fear we cannot put the brakes on it.


R .... I posted some links at the PM
on adding music clips. see the comments.

I pray that divajood is wrong!! If we don't put the brakes on, and soon, you'll find the lot of us residing in those lovely detainment camps that Halliburton built here on our own soil ( U.S. that is). I think I'm beginning to see more and more people wake up to the fact that there is a movement afoot, not just here in the U.S., but globally as well, that has the potential to make Hitler look like an amateur...
