When your humble dissenters at Dissent Channel started this blog, we hoped to lend our voices to the many others who were sick to death, fed up, and otherwise disgusted by what was happening to our democracy, and, attempt, no matter how feebly, to record the madministration's wrongs. We knew it would be an uphill battle, a herculean task, Sisyphean, even, but we were willing to make a go of it. Okay, so here and there we've added our voices, but it's gotten too damn hard to keep up with all the rampaging ruin of the B*shCo machine. Are we not human? Do we not bleed? Yes and yes. And we do have jobs. And lives. And pets. Not to mention that I am on a news hiatus in defense of my mental health (don't you worry your pretty little head about it, Bill Frist). Jeebus!

So your pals at DissChan humbly apologize for getting on with our lives and not even touching upon the topix below, but we are happy to present these fine bloggers, who are dedicated to the task of braving the torrent. They haven't even blinked, bless them (maybe they don't have pets?):
