To prevent drifting aimlessly, we need some Moorings

Here's a quote from Michael Moore's recent Letter to All Who Voted for George W. Bush

"Do you believe in Jesus? Really? Didn't he say that we would be judged by how we treat the least among us? Hurricane Katrina came in and blew off the facade that we were a nation with liberty and justice for all. The wind howled and the water rose and what was revealed was that the poor in America shall be left to suffer and die while the President of the United States fiddles and tells them to eat cake.

That's not a joke. The day the hurricane hit and the levees broke, Mr. Bush, John McCain and their rich pals were stuffing themselves with cake. A full day after the levees broke (the same levees whose repair funding he had cut), Mr. Bush was playing a guitar some country singer gave him. All this while New Orleans sank under water."

Read Michael Moore's full letter. The site, for the few of you who have not visited it yet, is a great place for other related writing, by Moore and others who question the establishment. On one of the pages, Dubya's current nemesis, Cindy Sheehan, asks What Kind of an Extremist Will You Be?

A local 'dissent page' would be a great place for many different views, culled from Pakistani Blogs, Helpline Trust's mailings, and other sources, and be a lot more effective than the scattered posts within a myriad blogs. MM's Links section might generate a few ideas.

Are you listening, Warrior and HM?
