Drop Trish a Thank You Note

This song now graces three patriotic Websites and has been used privately for several video productions. It's also now playing in the Military Courtesy Room at the Hancock International Airport in Syracuse, NY, and will soon be included on a compilation Americana CD (more on that project later).
"Thank a Soldier" is available to be recorded by others, so if you know of anyone who is looking for patriotic material, please send a note back! Thanks.


Thank A Soldier and a Marine

Dick Cheney, Patron Saint of Torture

Steve Weissman, Truthout: "'Hitler gave anti-Semitism a bad name,' as many high-born Europeans used to say, yearning for the good old days when all right-thinking people could disparage Jews in public. Former Vice President Dick Cheney is similarly giving torture an odious reputation, all in his zeal to prove himself the rightist thinking guy in America."

Mother's Day 2009

May 13, 2009
Dear Tim,
We had a blast at the Mother's Day vigil in DC last weekend! Thanks to the hard work of so many dedicated women for peace, the White House cozy came together so we could spread our message that "We Will Not Raise Our Children to Kill Another Mother's Child!" We sang, danced, and shared stories and ideas with mother's from all over the world. Please visit our Mother's Day page for photos and videos: http://www.codepinkalert.org/section.php?id=401 "Arise then...women of this day! Arise, all women who have hearts! From the bosom of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with Our own. It says: Disarm! Disarm!"— Julia Ward Howe, Mother's Day Proclamation, 1870

Roxana Saberi freed!

Dear Tim,

When Roxana Saberi, a 32-year-old American journalist was sentenced to eight years in prison on trumped-up charges of espionage, you and thousands of other Amnesty supporters immediately responded by sending over 26,000 letters to the Iranian government in less than 24 hours.

Your letters worked! Roxana was just released from prison today after an appeal court in Tehran reduced her sentence to two-years, which was then suspended.

Senator Byron Dorgan from Roxana's home state of North Dakota credited the happy outcome to the international pressure generated by the case.1

Amnesty International worked closely with other human rights organizations in a world-wide effort to obtain justice for Roxana.

Thanks for standing up for Roxana!

Elise, Zahir, Steve and the rest of the Iran rapid response team

Truth and honor

This is profoundly important.

80% of our law officers and military are thoroughly decent human beings.

They're willing to put their lives on their line to defend their country and their communities.

They need to know they have our support when they take the difficult step of upholding the law against corporate/government criminals.

DEADLINE LIVE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Gen. Janis Karpinski On The Coming Release Of More Toture Photos

In the current vacuum of information from the mainstream media, Jack Blood interviews General Janis Karpinski, the very person who was scapegoated by the Pentagon for the abuses at Abu Ghraib. In this revealing interview on April 28th, 2009, Jack Blood and Janis Karpinski talk about the bigger picture and the role of 9/11 in creating the atmosphere for these war crimes. In a letter addressed to a federal court, the Department of Defense announced that it will make public by May 28 a "substantial number" of photos depicting the abuse of prisoners by U.S. personnel. The photos, which are being released in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union in 2004, include images from prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan at locations other than Abu Ghraib.

Banksters Win One, Lose One in Congress

Bernie Horn, The Campaign for America's Future: "Yesterday, the US House of Representatives handed bankers in the credit card industry a defeat. But almost simultaneously, mortgage bankers won big in the Senate. Senator Richard Durbin lamented that the banks 'are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place.'"

Saturday 02 May 2009
Bill Moyers and Michael Winship, Truthout: "Your opinion of Obama's first 100 days depends, of course, on your own vantage point. But we'd argue that as part of his bending over backwards to support the banks and avoid the losers, he has blundered mightily in his choice of economic advisers."

Let's learn to speak American

We in America let us all unite and learn to speak American. Great Grand Mother use to say those Bloody Brits. She left Ireland while the Brits were starving us out. Potato Famine, wrong they cut back on our rations. We may have left Ireland, the Brits however never took away are spirit for freedom. Let us Focus on LOVE & PEACE. Lord make us all instruments of your Peace. LOVE & PEACE Tim Nolan

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
