What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

War in Iran - uranium in the news

"I sure wish I could be wrong about it." That, was what Seymour Hersh, a writer for the New Yorker said about his report in the April 17, 2006 issue of The New Yorker on the Bush administration's escalating tensions in Iran with a $4 million covert operation.

He writes in part:

"The Bush Administration, while publicly advocating diplomacy in order to stop Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon, has increased clandestine activities inside Iran and intensified planning for a possible major air attack. Current and former American military and intelligence officials said that Air Force planning groups are drawing up lists of targets, and teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to establish contact with anti-government ethnic-minority groups. The officials say that President Bush is determined to deny the Iranian regime the opportunity to begin a pilot program, planned for this spring, to enrich uranium."

There's a June 30, 2008 update and Hersh said the escalation is only increasing. He gives an interview that you can listen to by clicking here. Once you're there click on the "New Yorker OUT LOUD" link in the upper left corner of the page. Or click here as well.

My prediction dear readers - that the U.S. will be at war with Iran soon after the election is shared by many.

Wait - there's more:

"It is hard to imagine that anybody could fail to act given what we're all watching on the ground in Zimbabwe." That was the quote of the day from Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, on the runoff election in Zimbabwe where men, women and children are being shot, stabbed, beaten and tortured on their way to and from the polls..according to Amnesty International more than 80 people have been killed so far and untold numbers tortured, beaten or attacked. And all we have to worry about in America is a parking place close to the polls.

What has that got to do with this blog? Well - in some parts of the world (soon to be this part of the world when the New World Order takes over) people are willing to risk their lives to stand up and make things better. Not all those killed were voting - but voters turned out in spite of the risks.

Hersh - bless his soul - dared to confront the Bush White House and expose their plot...if history proves correct Hersh, at some point in time will "decide" to commit suicide as everyone who tangles with the White House does....odd don't you think? I only hope he gets his hands on the real info about 9/11 before that happens.

Bloggers - citizen journalists, targets of bullies, assault victims - you are not alone. You can stand up. Others have and are and are going to continue to do so. As am I. Even if I end up living in my van again - I won't shut up. What Media General has done and is continuing to do is WRONG.

I am inspired by those around the world who won't shut up or back down. You should be inspired too!
