During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

In the Company of Heroes...
The Looney Left-Wing Liberal MainStream Media has disgraced itself with the coverage of their Global War on Terrorism.
The absoulutely best coverage of the War is by Michael Yon. Instead of filing dispatches from the bar of the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad, he's out on the ground with the troops.
Other great coverage comes from people who are on the scene, not far away.
The Mudville Gazette has a link to this story:
People often ask what it feels like, of course I am happy to tell them what it's like. Imagine standing in front of your stove, turn it up to 130 degrees, now get inside of it, take your hair dryer and put it on full blast in your face. Don't forget to take a 500 watt light bulb and have it reflect off of sand colored surfaces into your eyes, no matter which diection you turn. For variety throw some talcum powder quality dust in your face. To complete the effect put on a 25 pound torso encompassing ceramic and syntehtic vest, add an 8 pound ceramic helmet, a T-shirt, long sleeve tunic, full length pants, wool socks and boots. Now imagine doing that everyday for 7 months, which is about the equivalent of the Iraqi summer. 130,000 men and women do it every single day, they don't do it for money, they don't do it for fame, they do it because they believe in something. They believe in an idea, an idea that America has a responsibility to do what we can to fight hatred, oppression and evil. We are a blessed nation to have so many give so much for so little in return. I am inspired everyday I am with them.

It is a national disgrace that none of this type of writing is being done by the highly paid, and underworked members of the Looney Left-Wing Liberal MainStream Media.
