Happy ImpeachmentDay! link to info and petition


Human Rights and Impeachment Day

Ten Reasons to Impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney
I ask Congress to impeach
President Bush and Vice President Cheney for the following reasons:
1.
Violating the United Nations Charter by launching an illegal "War of Aggression"
against Iraq without cause, using fraud to sell the war to Congress and the
public, misusing government funds to begin bombing without Congressional
authorization, and subjecting our military personnel to unnecessary harm,
debilitating injuries, and deaths.
2. Violating U.S. and international law
by authorizing the torture of thousands of captives, resulting in dozens of
deaths, and keeping prisoners hidden from the International Committee of the Red
Cross.
3. Violating the Constitution by arbitrarily detaining Americans,
legal residents, and non-Americans, without due process, without charge, and
without access to counsel.
4. Violating the Geneva Conventions by targeting
civilians, journalists, hospitals, and ambulances, and using illegal weapons,
including white phosphorous, depleted uranium, and a new type of napalm.
5.
Violating U.S. law and the Constitution through widespread wiretapping of the
phone calls and emails of Americans without a warrant.
6. Violating the
Constitution by using "signing statements" to defy hundreds of laws passed by
Congress.
7. Violating U.S. and state law by obstructing honest elections in
2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.
8. Violating U.S. law by using paid propaganda
and disinformation, selectively and misleadingly leaking classified information,
and exposing the identity of a covert CIA operative working on sensitive WMD
proliferation for political retribution.
9. Subverting the Constitution and
abusing Presidential power by asserting a "Unitary Executive Theory" giving
unlimited powers to the President, by obstructing efforts by Congress and the
Courts to review and restrict Presidential actions, and by promoting and signing
legislation negating the Bill of Rights and the Writ of Habeas Corpus.
10.
Gross negligence in failing to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane
Katrina, in ignoring urgent warnings of an Al Qaeda attack prior to Sept. 11,
2001, and in increasing air pollution causing global warming.



BE happy, but keep working...


This (R) was my Christmas card to BU**SH**'s Whitehouse last year.

Sadly so much more harm has been done in a year. So many more hearts broken.
But people who care can help broken hearts heal.

Posted by Picasa Please keep your spirits up and keep working for PEACE, and justice. Happy hopeful holidays!

Hello from WDC!


Gold Star Mom's for Peace and Col. Ann Wright. One mother of a soldier that is still serving said what really bothered him was that often they do not know who they are killing, they often just can not tell. She also sent him tons of food because where he was stationed was hours from the cafeteria, and I guess the army doesn't deliver. He did not have time often to go for meals. He also reminded her that the number we usually see-of soldiers killed in action are only those that die- DOA of very shortly there after, around twice that number die from serious injuries -head injuries etc. days or weeks later, so the actual number of soldiers KILLED in BU**SH**'s war is close to 9000! Several thousand more are still alive but so severely injured they likely will never even know they are 'home'.

Got Habeas Corpus? nope LINK to article/video OLBERMAN!


It's getting spookier by the day.

Quote:
Today, thanks to modern, post-9/11 thinking, those rights are now fully alienable.
The reality is, without habeas corpus, a lot of other rights lose their meaning.
But if you look at the actual Bill of Rights — the first ten amendments to that pesky Constitution — you'll see just how many remain.


Wear orange. Wear orange armbands. Decorate yourself and the city with orange Emergency crime tape to symbolize those being disappeared and tortured in our name.http://www.worldcantwait.net/
feel free to print BU**SH** graphic on orange note cards and distribute, or just draw or print your own message

Also important, sad and related: 655,000 Iraqis have died because of the war ?!
"Deaths are occurring in Iraq now at a rate more than three times that from before the invasion of March 2003," Dr. Gilbert Burnham, lead author of the study, said in a statement.
The study by Burnham, of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
