Washington, DC USA

On March 17, 2007, the 4th anniversary of the start of the criminal invasion of Iraq, tens of thousands of people from around the country will descend on the Pentagon in a mass demonstration to demand: U.S. Out of Iraq Now! 2007 is the 40th anniversary of the historic 1967 anti-war march to the Pentagon during the Vietnam War.

Mandate For Peace :: Jan 27, 2007

United For Peace...

Once again the folks at United For Peace and others are planning a day of non-violent resistance to the War In Iraq and the escalation of which Bush so proudly defies the public with.   I am sad to say I will not be able to make it to this one as my wife and I did for a similar event on September 24th, 2005.   I hope many people are able to make it...

Our new lawmakers need to look out their windows and see people marching in the street.   They have been given a Mandate For Peace and it is time they acted upon it.   Who will be the last to die for Bush's lies.

More importantly, who in congress stood by and did nothing to stop Bush.   They have been given Democratic Leadership as well as prominent Republicans who are standing up and saying...

 NO  TO  BUSH 

It is time to set this country on the road to repair before the Madman is taken from behind the wheel.   His license to kill needs to be revoked...   Now...!!!

Jan 27 - War Protest March - D.C.

Bring the Mandate for Peace to Washington DC on Jan. 27


Tell the New Congress: Act NOW to Bring the Troops Home!

Join United for Peace and Justice in a massive march on Washington, D.C., on Sat., January 27, to call on Congress to take immediate action to end the war.

On Election Day the voters delivered a dramatic, unmistakable mandate for peace. Now it's time for action. On January 27, 2007, we will converge from all around the country in Washington, D.C. to send a strong, clear message to Congress and the Bush Administration: The people of this country want the war and occupation in Iraq to end and we want the troops brought home now!

Congress has the power to end this war through legislation. We call on people from every congressional district in the country to gather in Washington, DC -- to express support for those members of Congress who are prepared to take immediate action against the war; to pressure those who are hesitant to act; and to speak out against those who remain tied to a failed policy.

Methodists: No To Bush

Tells Bush NOT at SMU...

Some very influential people in Dallas and the Methodist Church have taken it upon themselves to tell SMU to Say :: No-To-Bush.   I'm talkin' 'bout retired Bishops and others from all over the country...

Methodists: No Bush library at SMU

DALLAS - A group of Methodist ministers from across the nation launched an online petition drive Thursday urging Southern Methodist University to stop trying to land George W. Bush's presidential library.

Protect SMU.org

We the undersigned express our objection to the prospect of the George W. Bush library, museum, and think tank being established at Southern Methodist University. As United Methodists, we believe that the linking of his presidency with a university bearing the Methodist name is utterly inappropriate. We urge the Board of Trustees of Southern Methodist University and the South Central Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church to reject this project.

KSFO :: Hate Speech

Stop Hate Speech Now

The Spocko Blogswarm has expanded to include support from Media Matters.   They have highlighted the Hate Speech Radio programming of KSFO radio which includes choice Hate Speech by Coulter and her ilk.

Media Matters is taking one more step by providing this petition to ABC Disney to stop their support of such abuse.   If you are interested in more info, see my post on World of WingNuts, which explains and links to Spocko, Blogintegrity and the Hate Speech Agenda of the WingNuts.

If you have a blog, drop a footnote to one of you posts linking to the Spocko Blogswarm.   - fc

MEDIA MATTERS
FOR AMERICA

Hate has no place on the airwaves

Recently, the major television networks have given a platform to conservative hate merchants like Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, and Melanie Morgan.

Coulter's column is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, one of the country's largest syndicates. Beck was recently hired by CNN Headline News. Morgan broadcasts from a radio station owned by Disney. And all three -- and countless others like them -- are regularly given guest spots on cable-news networks.

The fact that these right-wing pundits -- who have called for the execution of public officials and others -- are given a platform in the major media is unprecedented.

We, the undersigned, urge the media to stop allowing these hate merchants to spread their venom and abuse. America deserves to hear honest, reasoned debate, not rants from professional hatemongers.

Check and Balance

Impeach / Convict

It's nice to see people finally coming around to the idea that Impeachment is the only option we have to save our country from the ruinous policies of George W. Bush.   It's not like he has not given reasons a plenty.   Bush's entire reign of terror aimed at the destruction of our Constitution has documented time and again his utter disdain for the rule of law.

The Bush Administration is the Wal-Mart Impeachment Super Store with aisle after aisle of marked down Impeachment causes.   The Red-Light Special of the Week turns out to be his signing statement that supposedly allows him to open first class mail.

Fear not entrepid Impeachment Shoppers, the Cheney, Addington support and guidance for more and better signing statements is still in full operation.   No outsourcing of jobs here folks.   Nothin' but good ole homegrown NeoCon ideolougues cookin' the books for Corporatistic Facism comin' to a neighborhood near you...   Soon...

Wherein I Am Reluctantly Dragged Against My Will Into the Pro-Impeachment Camp

My Left Wing

Well, when a destructive person hell-bent on saving his own ass or taking everything and everyone down with him continues to bluff, threaten and up the ante, the only pragmatic thing to do is to call that bluff before the ante gets too expensive for well-meaning people to contemplate.

And Impeachment really is the only option left. This was really crystalized for me in a thread on Free Republic of all places, where a commenter ironically named "Founding Father" really laid out the bare bones of the matter in a thread on Bush's laughable plan to balance the budget by 2012:

Constitutionally speaking, the President doesn't have to spend money congress appropriates; the President, through his justice department doesn't have to enforce laws congress passes; the President, again through his justice department and other executive departments doesn't have to enforce any federal court ruling (remember Andrew Jackson), I could go on but you catch my drift...

[skip to later comment by same author]

reply to: However, the President refusing to enforce Constitutional laws isn't among those checks within the Constitution.

Sorry, I didn't realize I needed to point out the obvious, which is the President refuses to do so because he doesn't believe the law is constitutional and since he has equal standing with the other branches the judicial branch can do nothing and the legislative branch has only the impeachment/conviction option.

As batshit crazy and on the wrong side of the issue as he is, the guy is right: Impeachment is the final pragmatic check and balance on a President who behaves like an Emperor. To many of these people, it is the ONLY check or balance on such a president. Indeed, in the minds of Bush and his legal team, a President can literally get away with almost ANYTHING and it's not a problem (as Nixon said, "If the President does it, that means it's legal")--after all, if the Congress finds him to be out of control, they can always impeach him! That's the check and balance!

So what we have now is a President who figures it's okay to open your mail without a warrant--after all, who's to stop him? If Congress thinks it's such a bad idea, we'll just move to impeach, right? Because if we don't move to impeach, it shows we just really didn't care bad enough--or that we figure we've got more to lose than he does.

And like the childish, addictive, irresponsible criminal he is, he'll use the same logic to continue upping the ante, calling our bluff, and DARING us to do something about it.

Phone Cards For Wounded Vets

Working For ChangeThis is a very touching thing that can be done for the Vets who have survived Bush's WarMongering.   If you can possibly help, I know the Vets would appriciate it...   - fc
Phone Cards For Wounded Vets
to injured veterans at Veterans Administration hospitals.

Support the veterans who've served our country by sending them a phone card so they can call their loved ones over the holidays.

Veterans Administration (VA) budget cuts in recent years have left many of our nation's veterans at VA hospitals without the means to call their families over the holidays. These long distance calls are generally not covered by the VA, and many vets just don't have the financial resources to call all their loved ones.

So Working Assets, Veterans for Peace, CODEPINK, Iraq Veterans Against the War and Gold Star Families for Peace have teamed up on a project to thank our veterans by sending them phone cards loaded with 125 minutes of domestic long-distance calling time. We'll purchase these cards and deliver them to VA Medical Facilities (Facilities Locator & Directory) all over the country on December 18th. (If you want to join in delivering the cards to a VA hospital near you, just click on the link you'll see after making your gift.)

$10 will cover the cost of phone cards for three veterans. $20 will buy six phone cards. $33 will buy ten cards. $100 will buy phone cards for 30 veterans to call home over the holidays. 100% of your gift will go directly to buying phone cards -- so please give as generously as you can.
