I am sort of confused?

When I was only protesting George Bush, his administration and the wars, I received a fair amount of media attention, especially when we were in Crawford the first summer. As time wore on and the novelty of having a mother speak out against the atrocities wore off, the coverage dwindled, but never down to practically zippo until I ran for Congress against a “liberal,” Nancy Pelosi.

After the Summer of Camp Casey and Katrina, it became really popular to protest and hate George Bush. George Bush slank out of office as the most detested president in American history. However, from the time Casey died until today, my focus has shifted from blaming George Bush only, to blaming the entire system: The Military-industrial-Congressional-Prison-Media-Banker Complex…or whatever you want to call it.

I have integrity. I oppose war, torture, economic oppression and environmental degradation no matter who is in the White House or what political party he belongs to. I have been one of President Obama’s earliest and most ardent critics, but where’s the media coverage when I protest the carnage now that Obama is president? Where’s Air America calling me to comment on the war crimes that Obama has already committed? Why won’t most “progressive” online sites print my articles anymore (except Oped News and MichaelMichael.com)?

One time when Bill O’ Reilly heard that I criticized Obama…he criticized me!

What is the bias? Is it always towards the Robber Class?

I will do what I think is right, no matter if anyone pays attention, or not.

I just think it’s weird.

  3. Cindy, you are important. Please do write more. Every voice that helps expose the intentions and actions of the elite is desperately needed. And your voice is eloquent.

  4. An Obamaite is no different than a Bushie.

    Bad for this country.

    Cindy got her first sniff of the stinking mess and sees that it doesn’t matter who is in charge (it is still run by the Corptocracy)

  5. I agree, Cindy! Apparently, the MSM thinks that support means to never question! I miss hearing from you very much…

    We have neo-cons (in more ways than one) and neo-liberals…ther is no MSM news channel that you can watch without being told what to think.

    When MSNBC came out with Olbermann, Matthews (well. less. so…lol), and Maddow, I thought that it was refreshing and funny. Then, they became a neo-liberal parody for the Democrats and I just couldnt watch anymore.

    I watch BBC and pbs, sometimes, I try to watch Democracy Now (my pc is SO old!), and read online. I try to watch Aljazeera, when my browser doesnt stop me and say, “this browser does not support hate” (???). Iread naomi Klein and dandelion salad!

    But I miss Ms. Sheehan—
