My main intent is to expose the fear-mongering machine; and with any luck, disarm the machine by arming people with information. It's real news that the mainstream ignores, things I consider to be smokescreens, plus a few ideas on what to do about it all. Please see the bottom of the blog for older posts and a wide variety of resources that I consider need-to-know info.

Will the US be Duped into Another War?

Sign the open letter for media intervention.

As far as the media goes, I firmly believe that when it comes to every single thing we suffer, struggle against and try to overcome as Americans; there are TWO sole causes that lead us to those problems: Corporate Interests & the Media - they are the poisonous partners that make it all possible. The press is the ONLY corporation protected by the Constitution - and for good reason. They have a constitutional duty to serve the people's educational interests, not other corporations' interests. That media thing, is OURS - and I want it back!

What a great way to illustrate the "1984" style propaganda machine that is the fifth branch.

The point that people are missing because of this propaganda is that control of the middle east is, and has been sought after for a very long time. It has been called the "key" to the oil industry amongst other wealth boosting industries. Our country will say anything to justify the invasion and occupation of foreign countries as long as it lines the pockets of the upper echelon.

About Me

My photo
I had been writing a News & Politics column for an online magazine for a little over three years, and just last fall opened this blog to continue publication. I also had the pleasure of being the associate producer for a progressive talk radio host for about a year. Alittle of everything... I've advised small businesses, and I paint all kinds of things (boxes, figurines, greeting cards, personalized children's and other dish-wares, decor...). I still paint when I can, but mainly I'm manage a wholesale company for a Fair Trade, eco-friendly Jewelry & Homewares designer/producer out of Bali called, Verlu. You can see a full catalog of our line on the website, and there is now a list of our retailers for you to visit too. "Wear in everybody's Good Health!"
The political opinions expressed in this blog are in no way related to Verlu. The proud Progressive in me is thrilled to say I'm working with a company that operates in a manner respectful to both Mother Earth & Humanity; however, Progressive Mews is not meant to reflect any opinion - aside from my very own.
