Now, I wonder who the conservatives think is the most dangerous man/woman in America?  Probably, Florida Congressman Alan Grayson, that the conservatives want everyone to know Blackwater rescued.

It is disgraceful that corporate private mercenaries work for the military to the extent that Congressmen are at the mercy of private industry.

The United States military should have been available to rescue Congressman Grayson when he needed rescuing, NOT private corporations mercenary army.  It appears to me the private corporations were letting Congressman Grayson know they are Al Capone, and their mob rules.

Gravel emerged as one of the few true heros of that time.

A politician with conviction enough to read the pentagon papers on the floor.

Inside ‘The Most Dangerous Man in America’

How ironic that the title of this excellent documentary
was derived from an actual Dangerous Man, Henry
Kissinger, a miscreant with few equals.

anyone interested in the history of the
Cherokee nation should try to find a book published
many, many years ago about the history of the
Ridge family…
Chief Ridge got his name from being a ridgerunner
in the late 1700
His son John, either recieved his degree from
Harvard or Oxford , can’t remember, but was a
lawyer that lobbied on behalf of the Cherokee Nation.
He lobbied against removal for many years until
he saw there was really no other option, then
helped negotiate the removal….
Once removed and sent to the promised lands
of Oklahoma, He, his Dad, Sam Watie and others
were murdered for their negotiations.
It is another very sad story of American history.
The Cherokees had assimilated into the culture
thrown on them…their farmers were produceing
about a bale of cotton more per acre. Their printing
presses were printing in two or three languages
Many had been European educated.

his Papers of the war survived my book burning from
a few years back..I was censoring myself,

only a few others survived this self-infliction.

Dee Williams ...Bury My Heart and
Gloria Jahoda…The Trail of Tears..

I never have read them….each time that I try
i have my own trail of tears

The beautiful King James version my mother presented
to me before she died.
and a W.E.B. DuBois READER edited by Paschal

Dangerous to whom?  Not the populace.
