      steps outside of the Embassy, don;t see how either the U.K. or U.S. can arrest him.

        And Seth {en’d}Rich him

          13. My thoughts exactly. nt

          Democracy, in this late stage of capitalism, has been replaced with a system of legalized bribery. All branches of government, including the courts, along with the systems of entertainment and news, are wholly owned subsidiaries of the corporate state. Electoral politics are elaborate puppet shows.- Chris Hedges

            15. Friends of ours are starting an online news network

            for yhe expressed purpose of exposing the quid pro quo sins

            Of our nation…

              16. We need all the alternative news sites we can get, MSM is one big fail. nt

    3. Step out of line, the man takes you away.

    I’ve been waiting for something to happen
    For a week or a month or a year
    With the blood in the ink of the headlines
    And the sound of the crowd in my ear

    You might ask what it takes to remember
    When you know that you’ve seen it before
    Where a government lies to a people
    And a country is drifting to war

    There’s a shadow on the faces
    Of the men who send the guns
    To the wars that are fought in places
    Where their business interests run

    On the radio talk shows and TV
    You hear one thing again and again
    How the USA stands for freedom
    And we come to the aid of a friend
    But who are the ones that we call our friends?
    These governments killing their own?
    Or the people who finally can’t take anymore
    And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone

    And there are lives in the balance
    There are people under fire
    There are children at the cannons
    And there is blood on the wire

    There’s a shadow on the faces
    Of the men who fan the flames
    Of the wars that are fought in places
    Where we can’t even say the names

    They sell us the president the same way
    They sell us our clothes and our cars
    They sell us everything from youth to religion
    The same time they sell us our wars

    I want to know who the men in the shadows are
    I want to hear somebody asking them why
    They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
    But they’re never the ones to fight or to die

    And there are lives in the balance
    There are people under fire
    There are children at the cannons
    And there is blood on the wire

      8. Too true, nice pick. nt

      A reasonable request: Reduce daily TV viewing time by 1/2 hour starting now. Ask others to do the same, follow through with them, break the media habit. FI - Simple and straight forward, just like this place, solutions without the bullshit.

      14. TY, so timely, must remember this has been going on forever, but today people

      are waking up.  Nothing’s changed, but now  at least we see it for what it is, I hope.

    9. Jullian is far from out of the woods.

    Even if no other country goes after Assange, I am afraid the US is going to be putting more and more pressure on anything keeping our government from getting what it wants. That is making an example out of Julian for sharing dirty secrets. Freedom of the press is dying.

    The DNC can try to squash us but we'll just come back stronger.

    12. How many now will agree this is a police state?

    Without charge…. without cause… they can just pick you up and take you away. There is so little difference between the US and other countries with goon squads and drug wars and military junta that we can all recognize it. We can simply join hands and admit it now.

    Call yourself a recipient of the Bill of Rights and you’re a liar now.
