While I am a Dead Head, I don't consider myself a Trekie but ST:TNG has re-entered my life with a different purpose. I have been watching it dubbed in Spanish. While I know people who watch Soap Operas to learn a language, that isn't my style. But, ST:TNG always impressed me because of it's better society message amid technological advances.
Here, I just wanted to add a page of information about how to donate to WikiLeaks through alternative means. This page comes from my using Tor to get the WL mirror.

Sorry about the title but I couldn't really come up with a summary. I personally hate the Left vs. Right definition of the political spectrum. It may be OK for those with an IQ similar to that of a carrot but thinking that political positions can be placed along a line is, well, dumb. For as long as I can remember, if forced to come up with a position for someone with a low IQ, I try to get them to at least see that a ring is a better representation.
