ďIf a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.Ē

Politics


I Can't Breathe

By Gary Lindorff


Iím white.
But I canít breathe.
Iím suffocating.
Maybe Iím dying.

I tried to run
But I got caught
Thinking terrible thoughts about my twisted country.
Dangerous and dark thoughts,
Like a German might have thought
When the Naziís were beating up Jews.
And the zeitgeist was shouting at me to stop.
Donít shoot! I shouted,
Peeing my pants,
Iím white!
Iím the same color as Jesus!
But the zeitgeist
Wasnít a Christian.
Wasnít even a white cop.
He was a frigginí octopus!
And he wasnít interested in anything I had to say.
I only had enough air to get out one more lie:
I gasped,
America is awesome!
But I was falling
And my sight was obscured by a red curtain
As the zeitgeist pulled me down.



-- Gary Lindorff

"The only news organization in the US to be labeled a threat by the Department of Homeland Security"

ThisCantBeHappening.net was founded in 2004 as a blog by Dave Lindorff in a quixotic one-man effort to afflict the powerful. As the site gained recognition and readers, Dave realized that it would take more than one journalist to cause any significant degree of affliction. He approached three long-time colleagues, John Grant, Linn Washington and Charles M. Young, and asked if they would be interested in joining him to form a news collective. All three, sharing Dave's profound frustration with the shallowness and fawning complicity of the establishment corporate media (and with the establishment not-for-profit media, too), signed on with alacrity and a shared desire to raise hell.
