Things like this are happening every day now in 'America'.

A young blonde Icelandic woman's recent experience visiting the US

The story of Eva Ósk Arnardóttir:

During the last twenty-four hours I have probably experienced the greatest humiliation to which I have ever been subjected. During these last twenty-four hours I have been handcuffed and chained, denied the chance to sleep, been without food and drink and been confined to a place without anyone knowing my whereabouts, imprisoned. Now I am beginning to try to understand all this, rest and review the events which began as innocently as possible.

Please, read this, and share it around the tubes...

The thing that surprises me is not that this happened, but that it doesn't happen even more often, given our inability to support our own constitution.

It may indeed, be happening more often than we are allowed to know, eh? And now that the FCC has allowed MORE corporate media conglomeration, we will hear less and less of true news...I thought of starting a new blog called SAD AMERICAN.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
