Democracy and free speech in the USofA ... hey, it's a concept!

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | 'Our voices are lost in the tide of intolerance sweeping America' - " ... A relative tells me that a history teacher tells his 11-year-old son, my nephew, that Susan Sarandon is endangering the troops by her opposition to the war. Another relative tells me of a school board decision to cancel a civics event that was proposing to have a moment of silence for those who have died in the war, because the students were including dead Iraqi civilians in their silent prayer. A teacher in another nephew's school is fired for wearing a T-shirt with a peace sign on it. A friend of the family tells of listening to the radio down South as the talk show host calls for the murder of a prominent anti-war activist. Death threats have appeared on other prominent anti-war activists' doorsteps for their views. Relatives of ours have received threatening emails and phone calls."

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
