This Is What Democracy Looks Like!
Tens of thousands of people across the country continue to gather to protest the short-sighted greed of the Bush Administration. Endless Wars and mounting debt for our children is their legacy crafted with human pain.

It's articulate. It's passionate. Mostly, it is real Americans speaking the truth.

Shaking the Bushes: 
How the Bush Family Makes Their Money

How is it that the Bush campaign raised $440 million in their first presidential election and even more last time?  How did George the Junior make his money in the 1990s?  What has George the Elder been up to since 1992 and what crimes has he been party to?   And how exactly did Jeb Bush keep black voters from the polls in Florida?  Greg Palast, award-winning journalist and author of the recent best seller, "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy",  tells the story of the Bush family and how they got to be so rich and powerful ... but don't make any connections!   Why?  The answer reveals more about the Bush family and their friends than you may want to know.  Don't miss this one!

Not In Our Name!  A Vigil For Peace

To commemorate the anniversary of the September 11th tragedy in the name of peaceful tomorrows, and declare that the grief of our people is not a cry for war, the War Resistor's League organized a dusk till dawn vigil at New York City's Washington Square Park which began the evening of September 10th, 2002.  Songs of Freedom was there along with thousands of others, including speakers from many nations, musicians of all kinds, and citizens like you and me concerned about the real truth behind the pending war and this country's sad legacy of dominant intent all over the world.  People were there to bare witness to the history of brutality and the potential of peace.  Although you may not have seen your brothers and sisters making their stand in coverage by the major media, you can join them tonight as you witness this episode.  I hope you do!    
In Peace and With Strength to us all!  - Joel Landy
