This is a free great resource packed full of useful and informative articles written by caring reporters, irrespective of age, race, occupation and individual interests. Salem-News.com is awesome! My favorite part is how morons aren't able to spam the site. I tried it but somehow this message ended up here, strange isn't it? The people at Salem-News.com even left my name up, and now they have my IP so they can turn me in for spamming... oh crap!

As the explosive revelation of E. Howard Hunt's deathbed confession, in which the former CIA agent and Watergate conspirator admits that he was part of a CIA conspiracy to assassinate JFK, continues to rage across the Internet, the establishment media remains almost mute on what is undoubtedly one of the biggest stories of the decade.

What War on Terror! What a dumb Mantra! The terrorists are our officials. Raping us and breaking our piggy banks. Pray to Larry Silverstein and Ruppert Murdoch. They own you.
