Good Day Everyone...
Every day most of us who consider ourselves freedom fighters immerse ourselves in the daily news. We read the headlines, scan the blogs and listen to our favorite patriot radio talk shows and gain insights, information and inspiration.
But sometimes it's so exhausting, isn't it?
I wanted to give you a heads-up this morning that I went to Republic Media to check in (GREAT response to that Lakotah Nation story, by the way!) and found that we have a new Republic Media Correspondent and I found her first piece rather refreshing. Jamie Nieman is a 33 year old from the midwest and she has some opinions to share with us all regarding today's culture. She starts out with a rant and a challenge regarding the FX cable TV network.
What I find refreshing about her is a very basic, down home feel in her presentation. She's not talking down, and not pontificating, but she's got a way of just laying it out there to ya' in plain old terms and isn't afraid to voice a strong opinion. I sort of feel like I'm sitting on the front porch listening to someone's mom go off about what she saw Johnny watching on TV last night. No pretense. No mental gymnastics. Just flat out American Midwest straight talk from the heartland.
In today's day and age of serious and depressing news being spewed all over us every moment of every day, I found Jamie's article made me smile a bit. Mostly because I know that this is someone who truly cares and truly believes what she's writing about.
You may not agree with her and that's cool, but check her first blog post out and engage in debate and discussion with her regardless of what you think. I believe that's what she's looking for; simply to get people to observe, talk and get moving on some aspects of our culture that she sees as important.
Sick to Death of FX! Read It Now
I'm glad that she chose Republic Media as the vehicle by which her voice may travel this vast web of information and I'm proud to have her on board as our latest correspondent. Please drop by, say hello, voice your opinion and let's keep her busy!
Frankly, I'd like to see more of this sort of thing on our site. Citizen journalism doesn't always have to be so tough. So many of you have great ideas and wonderful opinions but I know for fact that many are simply intimidated on some level and don't ever get the ball rolling on publishing for various reasons, but mostly I've found that those who want to contribute but don't usually don't because they feel that they don't have the time or experitise to 'do it right'. They're trying to emulate what they think a journalist should be and thinking about it too much.
That's not the point of this site.
The point is simple. Post your thoughts in written, video and audio form. Period. It doesn't have to be pretty. It doesn't have to be full of detailed research. It doesn't have to be perfect. All it has to be is you. Honest. Straight forward.
You never know who you will touch with what you may think was the most insignificant thought or slightest opinion. All of our voices are important. That's why we built this site. For you.
My hats off to Jamie for using this wonderful tool to express her opinion. Hope this serves as a motivation for some of you to jump in the game as well. If you need help getting started, that's what we're here for. Don't be a stranger....
