Free Radio San Diego 96.9FM is a direct action organization. What's direct action? Direct action means that you engage in something that directly gives you want you want to achieve. Let's say we want to have a community radio station. You could go protest in front of Fox, CNN, NBC, ABC, Clear Channel, Jefferson Pilot, etc.

Or, you could simply go about creating that station, which is direct action. We wanted a community radio station, and rather than sit around and beg people to give us the scraps from their tables, we built the damn thing ourselves from scratch.

Not all laws are legal. Imagine a black man who would try to vote in the 1940's. Or someone guilty of Sedition for speaking out against the government. The laws that are enforced by the FCC are created by and for extremely powerful and wealthy media giants whose singular focus is to turn a profit.

Our government exists to serve the people, we do not exist to serve it.

Terrorists are working to obtain biological, chemical, nuclear and radiological weapons and the threat of an attack is very real. Here at the Department of Homeland Security, throughout the federal government, and at organizations across America we are working hard to strengthen our Nation's security. Whenever possible, we want to stop terrorist attacks before they happen. All Americans should begin a process of learning about potential threats so we are better prepared to react during an attack. While there is no way to predict what will happen, or what your personal circumstances will be, there are simple things you can do now to prepare yourself and your loved ones."


"What is the meaning of yellow times?
Today we live in an age of yellow journalism, where the mainstream media sensationalizes their content in order to increase circulation and increase profits.
By putting television shows such as Survivor on the cover of their newspapers, or nicknaming a horrible conflict as a showdown, these guilty parties have given up on real journalism. During these yellow times in which we live, YellowTimes.org offers you an alternative. Find out more..."


"Earles' history is the stuff of legends, particularly to his fans. They know how Steve, out of nowheresville Schertz, Texas, son of an air traffic controller, dropped out of 8th grade to go on the road, and lie on ratty Austin couches with his Texas troubadour heroes. Townes Van Zandt, whom Steve called "a good teacher and bad role model" once had his prize student tie him to a tree, in an unsuccessful self-invention to stop the older man's drinking. They know, too, how Steve went to Nashville, where he wrote a bunch of songs, raised much hell, and, in 1986, made Guitar Town, a legitimately great record, a latter day Grapes of Wrath for the pick-up truck set, still a most eloquent expression of lefty redneck/populist complaint."
