“I believe in opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone …” — Crash Davis, Bull Durham

That’s not quite what we believe at The New American Dream Radio Show.

We believe that Crash Davis believes what he believes because he has been brainwashed by American newspapers and American culture.

We believe there is so much more … so much more … that Americans live on lies, subsist on lies, but it’s not really living.

Your brother-in-law, Brad, tries to send you to Siberia with a roll of his eyes at the Thanksgiving adult big table because you have dared to ask one of the taboo questions about 9/11, or the moon, JFK, Sandy Hook, Boston — but you, because you listen to The New American Dream Radio Show — know that you are not alone and that you have a right to ask any goddamn question you want.

And so, that’s how it’s going to go from now on …

Just as they said in the fake anthrax letters … they want us to be afraid … those murderers who are in the same house with us … but we are not afraid.

We will ask any question we want … and in the end … truth will win out and peace will break out … as the empire crumbles …

That is what we believe.
