Support Truth

Get the book

Last night, I started my apprenticeship with Pedro Gatos, dj at KOOP radio, 91.7FM who hosts his show 'Bringing Light into Darkness' from 6-7pm, Monday nights. Pedro recently retired from County gov't, and having just returned from Camp Casey this weekend where he met, for the second time, Dennis Kyne. Dennis is a Gulf war veteran, a disabled war veteran, an activist and someone who has been speaking out on the state of the American military. An article he wrote about depleted uranium might be something some of you remember, especially those who live in the Bay area; What Happened to the Test Tube paradigm?
Last night's interview that Pedro had while Dennis was en route to New Mexico for a speaking engagement was very interesting and I wish I could post the transcript or an online streamline version or something but..we're not that far yet!

I realized while listening to his comments relating New Orleans (he and other Veterans for Peace set up shop post Katrina to help out when no one did), the wild spread use of depleted uranium etc. was, that I have learned and uncovered so much since I started blogging. Snippets of his commentary rang true and made sense because of a bigger overall picture I have been developing of the real state of this Union, and how by sheer vigilance in reading and self educating, so many others who are in the dark (and who for the most part wish to stay there), could know it too. The information IS out there. It is not like Nazi Germany where German citizens could say, oh, we did not know these things happened. All the moral, legal, and economical violations that are occurring are happening right under our noses. It is when you channel surf and you see local cable tv where someone is talking alternative news, do you stop to listen for a bit? Or do you automatically dismiss it and move on to something that will lull you to sleep at night?
Here is to Independent media,; independent voices, Austin's community radio, KOOP 91.7FM.
Seek to know the truth.
