Hell No--We Won't Go

The purpose of this site is to expose corruption and injustice in forms that affect the lives of many. Sprinkled in-between is strong opinion on matters of public interest, in addition to stories that the owners of this site feel are important to offer to our wide, global audience of readers.

We exist to level the playing field and to try and fill the void that the mainstream media cannot or will not report on for a myriad of reasons: laziness, conflicts of political and advertiser interests, a lack of time and workforce power, and sometimes the deliberate suppression of information the public should know about.

This site has been successful in its purpose if our readership and traffic are indicators of the popularity of truth-telling.

But someone is really upset with us, enough to make threats that wade into the area of a federal crime. They want us to shut up, go away and stop talking about what we cover. Maybe they are uncomfortable with having their misdeeds on the worldwide web for a mass audience to peer into. Maybe they're just too accustomed to getting away with 'it' as a matter of the accepted norm.

They shouldn't be, but that's what the state media has allowed them to do for years--operate right out in the open without harsh examination no matter how much they do to the regular folks. Or the environment. We think that's wrong on so many fronts it's hard to know where to end that miles long list of egregious, and sometimes criminal behavior.

'Let's lean on Max and his gang a little harder so they'll be quiet.'

We've upset the usual suspects with some of our reporting and commentary. We've upset some in the media who sit on lofty perches and sneer down on bloggers as ankle biters outside the realm of "serious journalism." How dare anyone have an opinion, and dare to write about it, unless they are reporter with a mainstream media outlet.

We dare to.

And we'll continue to do it.

As long as there is corruption and injustice to write about it, we'll write about it.

No amount of threats or pressure will silence what we have committed to do in the name of exposing wrongs.

Would you expect any less from us our readers?

What say you to those who hide behind anonymous threats of "homes are so fragile....you're debt is now due and payable isn't it?"

Doesn't it sound similar to the the old capos who would send their henchmen into a place of business, in an attempt to intimidate a reluctant-to-being-shaken-down owner: "You have such a beautiful store here, it would be a shame to have it burn to the ground."

Yes, it kind of does sound somewhat similar. The intent is clear.

And to them we say: not just 'no' but hell no, we won't go.

    Once upon a time, journalism was about more than headlines and advertisers. It was "fair and balanced". But that is up to groups like Max and his team of honest and honorable people. Go for the gold! Keep the truth coming!

  5. There once was a time where you had real journalism vs yellow journalism. The main stream media has blurred the two. Thank you for speaking the truth and not cowing to advertisers and coalitions.

    True to historical record, this proves once again that Alabama is a very dark place.

    John 3:20---Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

    Keep exposing them,Vincent Confidential!

  7. What does that mean: homes are fragile?
    Sounds like a really evil and potentially deadly threat to me!!!!
    Par for the course with these types, F em Max, keep right on with what you're doing! You know there are some strong laws against this kind of thing.

  9. So now the Big Bad Mules, um wolves, are huffing and puffing and trying to blow the VAC house down. My money is on Max and the gang--the ones with real backbone and real balls. You must have really struck a nerve. Watch your backs, VAC, but at the same time give yourselves a big ole pat for the great work you do.
