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.
