Hello from Dallas, Texas,

I left Acapulco and arrived in Houston a few days ago and after an hour wait to have my papers checked and be interrogated like a criminal I dropped off my luggage for a connection to Shreveport.  The Bush crime family international airport is a huge and unwieldy place and I was delayed through customs. I looked at the connecting bag checkers who put luggage on the belt and none of them seemed to be in any rush at all.  In fact, almost all the bags were sitting beside the belt and from time to time a person would meander through and look at a bag.  I pretty much knew my bag was gone at that point and it was.

Happy Friday! Quite a week in the USSA: DOMA is dead, and everyone is now equal to pay the government off to get married... as Doug Stanhope said, "Baby, this love we got is so good, we got to get the government involved in this!"; the Wendy Davis filibuster showed what a joke elected officials are; and Edward Snowden is escaping government persecution by defecting to…Russia?

If you wish to speak the truth, then leave America. On American soil, the truth will not set you free; it can kill you.

Julian Assange knows this. In 2010, his organization WikiLeaks released hundreds of thousands of confidential documents; they pulled back the curtain on the lies and atrocities that constituted the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan

Why People Tolerate a Total State

[Editor’s Note: The following post is by TDV contributor, Wendy McElroy]

“Why do so many people not realize America has become a total state?”

Anyone who points out the politically obvious and is accused of panic-mongering has considered this question. The NSA's massive spying, the TSA frisking their children, the IRS targeting people politically, the longest war in American history, the militarization of law enforcement, the indefinite detention of prisoners at Gitmo...nothing, nothing seems to budge some people from the belief that the US is the freest, grandest nation on earth.
