Should Bush be IMPEACHED? MSNBC is asking US!

Makes me proud to be an AMERICAN again! (some might complain that his was DUed, but I am sure it was Freeped too. So it likely balances out. The 8% were mostly the freepers:)

I'm making MERRY MERRY MERRY!!!! Thanks MSNBC for asking.
Do you believe President Bush's actions justify impeachment? * 155600 responses MSNBC POLL -
WOW! MERRY Christmas
Happy Kwanza! Happy Hannukah! and a
UPDATE- 185835 responses by 1/1/2006
NEW- PLEASE TELL them! Take the POLL- might still be running!
They need to hear from as many of US as possible ASAP! Thank you!
Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial. 86%
No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching "high crimes and misdemeanors." 5%
No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching. 8%
I don't know. 2%
This is BIG! Please tell everyone you can!

Demand they Restore our Democracy! PETITION to support HR550 bill

Verified Voting is an absolute necessity in order for our democracy to be restored! That the republican leadership is keeping this vtally important bill from coming to the floor for a vote is reprehensible. They should not be serving in our congress if they do not even believe in US democracy, and they don't! They believe in making whatever selfish gains they can via corruption, and kissing up to their even more well connected and corrupt leadership.
Please sign the petition and then you can do more: Call your members of Congress right now on one of these toll-free numbers, 888-818-6641 or 888-355-3588. Tell them, "OUR democracy matters"!

The WAR on Christmas Subterfuge -(related Consortium article link)

What is it really about?
Bush is JUSTIFIABLY down, down, down in the polls, so they need to rally, around something, and as usual ATTACKING the perceived EVIL "liberals" is a no brainer ROVIANESQUE technique.
Here is an excellent article that exploeres the real meaning of the Bush regimes and their Spew on Cue Crew's Merry CHRISTMAS war.
....political operatives who can turn the Christmas celebration ..... a traditional message of love, peace and tolerance into one of anger, conflict and resentment.
... the American Right in extracting a “war on Christmas” out of a few well-meaning gestures to non-Christians, such as using the greeting “Happy Holidays,” is a testament to the investment conservatives have made in media over three decades.
.... the Right now can take a few scattered anecdotes on almost any topic and heat them up into a hot-button issue.
This “perception management” capability is now so powerful that even the most absurd notions can be made convincing to millions of Americans.....

Bush himself-or his crafty handlers like to play it both ways-for sure-remaining above the fray-so he sent 'Happy Holiday' cards out-very nice ones-and did catch some flak for it from some on the far-right. I guess they like to shake his tree once in a while to remind him THEY are his base.

Making regular folks feel threatened by a silly non-exsistant war on Christmas is a distraction, a useful device.
Please it is very worth reading the entire LINKED article - actually a wonderful site for an in depth HISTORY of the Bush regime- VERY FACTUAL!!!! FACTS not just smears.

CO-OPTING Merry Christmas by the BAH HUMBUG Party!

There is no war on Christmas but the far-right/repubs have succeeded once aain in making the 'dem/lib' side (when their is no side to this issue actually) play defense in another game of their dirty dodge ball.
Remeber - "framing" -those of you who have read the George Lakoff's "Don't Think of an Elephant" (see above link for more useful information) this is another case of the far right using-actually trying to Co-Opt Christmas.

I find my self almost compelled to call my beautifully decorated now inspite of having fallen over CHRISTMAS tree a Holiday tree, funny I never did before. What changed?
I often said Merry Christmas and send out a variety of Christmas Cards- Season Greetings often to non-christian friends, and occasionally eveyone- just based on what struck my fancy.
I have a manger and am not anti-manger- although sympathetic to the issue. I'm for reasonable inclusion of traditional, classical and especially fun songs Christmas/ Holiday /Seasonal songs.

I (and most liberals I know including non-Christian friends-(by culture/religion or choice) are almost 100% on the "side" of what I sincerely consider the true meaning of Christmas- the values that Christ (according to the 'story' for non-beleivers) exemplified in his life on earth;
charity; compassion, concern, caring and courage.

No one has a right to try to co-opt those VALUES, although they are of course free to share, and many conservatives do of course.
Not IMHO the ones who are actually declaring this 'war on Christmas' although some of their frightened followers do. the far right again is trying to arouse anger and mistrust, even hate.
That seems to be what Christmas is to them - just another weapon in their perceptual mangement arsenal.

Demand a reasonable EXIT Plan! LINK you may add your comments.
The realities in Iraq are compelling more experts to support an exit strategy of some sort. As Bill Clinton said this week, "It seems to me the best thing to do is to heed the wishes of all the leaders of Iraq...who say they want us to draw down our forces."
recommend buying this mag. makes a nice adult HOLIDAY stocking stuffer.
The Atlantic Monthly | December 2005
If America Left Iraq
by Nir Rosen- who spent over a year reporting from Iraq.
there is MUCH more to the article but her is one line;
The longer the United States stays, the more it fuels Sunni hostility toward Shiite "collaborators." Were America not in Iraq, Sunni leaders could negotiate and participate without fear that they themselves would be branded traitors and collaborators by their constituents.

Conspiracy of Silence < Every American Should See This Video> This is an excellent article with links to the rough cut video. The investigative report was even advertised in the TV guide, when it was going to be shown on the Discovery Channel in the US. Someone ordered that it not be aired, and for all copies of the video to be destroyed.
Serious stuff; the apparent murder of an investigator and his 8 year old son-their small airplane blew apart in mid air, and perhaps even the mysterious death of former CIA director William Colby, apparently are related.
From an Iowa NEWS TV report
"Some people suggest Jeff Gannon to be the product of government training. An operative who uses sex to black mail government officials. Others....suggest Johnny Gosch became Jeff Gannon to expose the criminals who kidnapped him, destroying his life and putting his family through hell."
J.G. perhaps has 2 or 3 lives, is he trying to overcome years of brain washing? Will we ever know the real story? Will he ever be able to tell US? More links; What happend to Johnny? Another incredible article, a must read. PLEASE!
It discusses the arrest of a photographer who documented the White House child sex ring, and Hunter Thompson's mysterious death. and much more related information.

Tell Congress to say "NO" to terrible budget cuts LINK

Many hard working Americans would be hit hard, and the usual suspects would be rewarded with tax breaks.
This budget would cut over $50 billion from critical services including Medicaid, food stamps, and student loans. Then they want to pass out $70 billion in tax breaks to the rich!
We can not afford this! We can not afford anymore BU**SH**! We can't wait!

Sunday, November 13, 2005

WE can't and shouldn't just take it anymore.

The far right and their spew on cue crew, have become more hateful and dangerous. We need to demand our congress make tough decisions and take meaningful action now. - see the above link and www.worldcantwait.netPosted by Picasa

Nov. 2 photos and flickR WCW Group link

Ann Wright had a long career as a Diplomat, til she quit in protest of the Neocon's war. She was wonderful, as were all the speakers!

From all over OUR Country- World Can't Wait Rally photos- LINK

Thousands of protesters staged rallies on Wednesday across the United States against the policies of President George W. Bush, including the war in Iraq and response to Hurricane Katrina.
I was so pleased that Michael Moore linked some news articles and the above photo link.
The event I attended in NY was fantastic. Around 4 thousand people Rallied at Union Square hear several dyanamic, determined, concerned and caring speakers SPEAK the TRUTH concerning the BushInc.'s crimes and callousness.
Then we marched chanting Join US, Join US, Our world can't wait. ETC. Some did join in , many cheered and applauded, some waved scarfs from apartment windows.
The Time Square rally was also wonderful and the Reading of the Call amazing!
I hope this is a call to our Democrats that they better STAND UP for the truth and really do something worthwhile as well! Because we can not, and will not, wait much longer!

Our World Can't Wait - PHOTO Chain

The World Can't Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!
Mobilize for November 2, 2005!
SIGN UP TO HOST AN EVENT another nice resource for Nov. 2nd.
ANNOUNCING a PHOTO album and World Can't Wait GROUP at flickR WCW Group my pics but also recommend searching anti-war or whatever you are interested in- MANY great photos.
OH BTW one thing cool about Groups on FlickR you can both delete extremist hate spew and threats, and ban a repeat offender from the group.

Harassment, name calling, and smears by far right nut cases are not just for the famous. Far right extremist also try to dominate the world of blogging. Some people from the far right, who promote violence against "liberals' oddly, seem to want constant attention from them, or they keep whining. Because I have a real life, work, family and travel plans. I will not have time to baby sit, and clean up the constant spews they post in the blog comments. I also by my choice, do not wish to be linked, to a blog, that reeks of hate and BU**SH**.
The comments are not a big deal in this blog- this blog is meant to simply inform-by providing links; to information, and actions folks can take to help our country and our world.
I discuss and debate issues on a couple other sites, which are somewhat moderated-eg: Most personnel attacks and threats are not tolerated. Unfortunately on this blog system - evidently the only way you can prevent meanspirited remarks, threats, and name calling, are to close your comments.
So because I am not interested in hearing from one IMHO sick dude, in need of constant attention, sometimes 10-20 times a day, I have to close MY COMMENTS. Oh well. Life goes on, and hope is in the air!

Bush Crime Commission LINK

There is now a great deal of information on the meetings that happend last weekend in NY. Also You can still write Cspan -link on site above, and request they cover this important event.
BTW the president's close friend Ms. Harriet Miers is no longer a contender for Supreme Court judge. Many of US are happy about that. This could NOT happen at a better time. Will he go more extreme to win back the FAR right, or find a truly qualified and moderate candidate like Judge Ed Prado? Who has been appointed by republicans and endorsed by democrats.
More later , on a break at work.
It is clear that senators would not be satisfied until they gained access to internal documents concerning advice provided during her tenure at the White House -- disclosures that would undermine a president's ability to receive candid counsel," Bush said(
So maybe it is NOT such a good idea to nominate one's own lawyer, and close personnel friend as a Supreme Court Judge? DUH!

Campaign against Depleted Uranium link

How many civilians have also died? Estimates range from 30,000-100,000. I also would like to know the truth about Depleted Uranium, I have included a link above.  Posted by Picasa

Bitter Fruit a tribute to our fallen.

A caring visitor Posted by Picasa by Paul Fusco Focuses on the families and funerals Sad but well done. Even if you do not have much time, worth taking a look and listen. If you have to you can advance to the end.
A Message from Cindy Sheehan There was a man there who had several signs which among them said: "Saddam loves Cindy." This man didn't care that Rumsfeld ... was buddy, buddy with Saddam and gave him or sold him tons of WMD's before he became our enemy. I told this man that he didn't bother me, and he told me I don't bother him either. Well, if I don't bother him, why did he come down and make signs and march for hours screaming that I kill our soldiers? We found out why. He was making 60 dollars an hour to do so from some non-profit, right wing group.
The BushInc. have a history of making Bilions in the defense/WAR industry as well as oil, 'The Iron Triangle'.

Vigil in my home town to support our troops and

bring them home ASAP.

Around 50 people came with their candles. We talked quietly, some prayed. More than 100,000 people signed up to meet at 1,354 candlelight vigils (registered on 1 site- more small informal ones likely took place) They took place Wednesday evening in all 50 states, and of course in Washington DC, to remember and honor our fallen soldiers and ask, "How many more?"

Above title link will take you to the World Can't Wait site, Progressive Dems, Cindy Sheehan, Cornel West, Howard Zinn and many more wonderful people have emdorsed this action on NOv. 2nd.

Being a Good American the far "RIGHT" way LINK

OK let's have a little more fun while we wait for Merry FITZmas! Click above link.

BUT seriously consider this 2000 soldiers have now died- so many more hurt : If you can not make it to an 'event'elsewhere, PLEASE make the effort, to GATHER with your family, your friends, neighbors or even alone, and come out to your sidewalk, perhaps gather on an intersection, light a candle.
Pause, prey and/or think for a few moments, about our fallen and hurt. Think about all that has happend to US and why.
Then come in, and when you have time; Write and or call your congress people. Tell them we need them to act in good faith for our common good NOW.
I suggest 7PM (after the news-hate to think some will not come out at all because of breaking news) but many are saying 6:30PM. Whatever works for you of course (or not). See below for additional resources for contacting congress etc. Take care.
