LINK - to events! Now we know, WE CAN"T WAIT!



Our world and our country are in big trouble in so many ways! Get together and make some noise! Drown out the BU**SH** and try to look forward.
You can care about this country and our people, very much, and be very against those that are working against our rights, our common good, our democracy, harming our world in so many ways, constantly lying to US, and pushing US into more hateful war.
Sincerely more than ever I believe dissent is patriotism.
I do not support terrorism. I am NOT happy that Osama and his right hand man are still out there, (I know they are NOT a high priority of the Bush regime) -while around a hundred thousand people are DEAD because of this war based on LIES, and now the talking points pundits are easing the way for acceptance of the once considered UNTHINKABLE possibility of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on people that have NOT attacked US, in a land where we earlier, installed a cruel puppet ruler-the Shar of Iran. I sincerely believe the Bush regime (Bu**sh**INC.) are ruthless and will gladly kill thousands of innocent people, and harm millions more, for their selfish goals.
I absolutely hope Bush will be impeached! here is a (in Jan. 30th mag.) recent article by a former congressperson; Elizabeth Holzman in the latest Nation magazine;
I have been deeply troubled by Bush's breathtaking scorn for our international treaty obligations under the United Nations Charter and the Geneva Conventions. I have also been disturbed by the torture scandals and the violations of US criminal laws at the highest levels of our government they may entail, something I have written about in these pages [see Holtzman, "Torture and Accountability," July 18/25, 2005].

Poll: Americans Favor Bush's Impeachment If He Lied about Iraq ...A war of aggression was carried out by the US -the ultimate crime against humanity-as defined by the US sponsered Nuremberg trials. Therefore impeach Bush ...

Washington Post re: yesterdays disappointing Tally

I think genuine concern and compassion for people is an admirable quality, funny how often the far-right folk look down on those who CARE; about the "little" or just regular folks. Alito has a pretty close to ABSOLUTE record of coming outright against individual rights, and consistantly siding with the big bucks.
Well above is a link to the tally, of those who did what they could for US, the brave ones. Sure more dems will vote against Alito today- but it will likely be a token effort. These are the ones who actually stood up for what they believed; http://blogs.washingtonpost.com/cam...call_of_th.html

Below-excellent NY times article concerning big scary picture.
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/26/o...thur1.html?_r=1
Judge Samuel Alito Jr., whose entire history suggests that he holds extreme views about the expansive powers of the presidency and the limited role of Congress, will almost certainly be a Supreme Court justice soon. His elevation will come courtesy of a president whose grandiose vision of his own powers threatens to undermine the nation's basic philosophy of government — and a Senate that seems eager to cooperate by rolling over and playing dead.
It is hard to imagine a moment when it would be more appropriate for senators to fight for a principle.

1-800-426-8074 Tell your senators NO Unitary EXECUTIVE

The democrats (and others who care) should stand up for our democracy and filibuster! You can use this link to write your choice of a local or national newspaper! http://www.moveon.org/lte/lte_t.html?zip=27410<e_campaign_id=44 This Unitary Executive idea is just un-American.
Alito's extreme views on presidential authority indicate that he will 100% back the Bush regime's power to detain American citizens without trial, torture at will, and spy on private conversations. Also, I am pro-choice, and let's face it, that along with many other rights, will become history under the Bush regime, with Alito on the Supreme Court. Alito will 100% stand UP for the Bush regime,for corruption, and against our rights and our democracy.

Bushit!

Here are a couple of very IMPORTANT and informative books, you can order them from BUZZflash.com and support our right to free and factual news.
http://www.buzzflash.com/premiums/index.php

"Whenever power is unchecked and unaccountable it almost inevitably leads to gross mistakes and abuses. That is part of human nature. In the absence of rigorous accountability, incompetence flourishes." - Al Gore so true

Protect Your RIGHTS, and our democracy. ACTION link


---------------------------------------------- http://www.nocrony.com/

Alito is on the record stating that he believes in a dictatorial model of the president (Unitary Executive) Robert Bork himself stated the other day he believes conclusively that Alito still holds that view. THAT is ENOUGH evidence to justify a filibuster on Alito, much more important than his banal plesantries and weeeping wife.
Also let's face it, the far religious right is hapy as can be that the 'right to choose' (and so many more rights) will likely soon be history.

The one click form on this page will send your personal message to both your Senators, with the subject "Filibuster the Alito nomination." At the same time you can send your personal comments only as a letter to the editor of your nearest local daily newspaper if you like. Please also follow up with phone calls on the tollfree numbers 888-818-6641 and 888-355-3588.

Picture of my grateful child and Grateful child website-LINK!


Old picture of my daughter-from the Syracuse Newspapers-many years ago. We just happened upon an anti-nuclear protest, and joined in. My sister just came across it and sent it to me, and I am very grateful.
Here are some more important links from the grateful child page. http://www.gratefulchild.org/projects/gcweb/gc/html/charities/
SAY NO to WAR! Women and those who love US!!!!! http://www.womensaynotowar.org/article.php?list=type&type=100
Alito said a "good judge" has no AGENDA, but he sure does!
He is all for the far right's BU**SH** agenda, more power for them, and less accountability.
He helped develop the infamous signing staements that Bush uses more than any predecessor to interpret (try to dictate what they should mean) newly passed bills, and more or less claim they do not apply to him, like he did with McCain's anti-torture bill.
Got democracy? Want it? Tell them to vote NO! http://truemajority.com/ petition, and letter writing and many other important petitions - here; http://capwiz.com/pdamerica/home/ This is a very useful resource, we all should bookmark!

Bush used a signing statement to blunt the impact of the McCain amendment banning cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of detainees in U.S. custody. When Bush signed the bill, he reserved the right to bypass the law under his commander-in-chief powers.

Congressman John Conyers writes, "This administration must be held accountable for its misdeeds," adding, "I am taking steps against the Bush Administration's handling of the Iraq War and its collection of intelligence. I am going to need you to stand with me in fighting for accountability.

Tens of thousands of PDA members and other concerned citizens will call Members of Congress, urging them to cosponsor three bills: H.Res.635 to create a select committee to investigate and to make recommendations on grounds for impeachment, H.Res.636 to censure Bush, and H.Res.637 to censure Cheney.

Time to tell them; IMPEACH BUSH NOW! link


Impeachment Checklist 1. Familiarize yourself with "The Question.": "The Bush administration simply cannot answer this one question - if time was of the essence, why didn't they conduct the searches and get the warrants after the fact, something that is allowed under the FISA law? They conducted the searches alright, but they never once sought the retroactive warrants." 2. Send an email to all of these media folks and ask them "The Question." 3. Sign Senator Boxer's petition. 4. Contact your Senator. 5. Contact your congressman. 6. Contact Congressman Pete Hoekstra too. 7. File a Freedom of Information Act request HERE. 8. Sign John Conyers' petition to censure and investigate impeachment. 9. Join the guerilla marketing campaign. 10. Make a donation to ImpeachPAC. 11. Join the Impeach Bush Coalition. (Thanks to Redneck Mother for inspiring the list.) (Copied with permission from Bulldog Manifesto)
