Impeachment off the table? We think not!

Admittedly, I am not a Democrat but an Independent, but a common goal is a common goal; the impeachment of President Bush. I've said it before on many a comment; what's worse, a speck a' sperm or a river of blood?

As I am on the list, I figured that was the reason for the email I received from the people and they're determined to go after the impeachment of Bush, grassroots style.
So here is the plan. Go to the Impeach for Change site. Never mind if you're Republican, Independent, or Libertarian or "other". The idea is to work across the country together to get the elected Democrats to go for impeaching Bush. Nancy Pelosi might have chosen Murtha which I think was a good choice, but the Democrats as a party needs to stand up and show backbone and really lead this country into a serious inquest into what happened, how, why and impeach Bush. We need to stand up for the men and women in uniform who've enlisted with the best intentions (never mind that I think it's because of propaganda patriotic beloney)to serve, and in turn got served a terrible raw deal and be some sort of offering to the God of wealth as if they mean nothing. Or the thousands and thousands of Iraqis. (for some serious, yet very graphic pictures of war casualties, go HERE. Be advised, it IS very gruesome but this is the reality of war)

Now lest you think I'm forgetting something, Cheney is included in the impeachment package. To sign the petition for impeachment for the both of them, go HERE!

To print copies of the impeachment petition, go HERE!

Now when you go to the impeachment for change site (note, the democrat site but never mind that), when you scroll down you'll see that some people do not agree on impeaching him while in office. What do you think? Personally, I think Bush and Cheney will be prevented from pulling any more stunts if they're being investigated while in office. Of course, we also should not forget Karl Rove and some other neocons, names elude me right now. So let's act as decisive as we did when we voted on November 7th.

It cannot be repeated enough; what's worse? A speck of sperm on a dress, or rivers of blood on our leaders' hands? Really.

It is funny how things change. Did you know that the origin of the name MoveOn was to move on from Clinton's sex scandal and Impeachment process? Now the same organization pushing for Impeachment of another president :)

Rogel, isn't that ironic indeed? It's funny though that sex or infidelty type issues carry a whole lot more weight in politics than people dying. I'm not trying to be melodramatic about it and I'd be the first to condemn immoral behaviour, but immoral for so many people seem to only refer to sexual orientation/exploits/behaviour rather than the killing of many people.
If you read the ten reasons for impeaching Bush, we're talking about a whole list of impeachable offenses. Clinton was not exactly a saint either, but I do think that his administration had good intentions for the most part, instead of this one in office.

I did not intend to argue about the impeachment - although the question of impeachment for political actions can, and should, be argued. I just pointed to the irony

Rogel, sorry I wasn't clear (I'm a bit sleep deprived these days). I knew that that is what you meant, and I agree with you on that :)

Wait a second, we are not supposed to agree - it is against the rules! :)

LOL Rogel, that means I'm still full of surprises OR that you are! I am glad though that even when we do, we can respect and hear each others opinion for what it is.
I better get back to making lunch,

I said the same thing. Who the hell do they think they are Republicans? If it is the "will of the people" these REPRESENTATIVES better buck up and do the bidding of the people they represent.

Well, I'm afraid to say that it doesn't look like BushCo will be tried. I'm very disappointed with the democrats - they've made clear they won't cut off funding for Iraq, they won't call for a just peace in the Middle East (by withholding funds from Israel) and they won't push for impeachment. Different people, same old crap.

Hi guys, sorry for being late in responding, I have my mom visiting (from Holland)plus busy with other stuff..
ok..Cyberotter,Heathlander, as an Independent I'd say, yep, same old same old with some little nuances here or there. However, the very progressive types are not giving up so Betmo, Thank You for signing! Dimitri my fellow compatriot (ok, technically I can't say that but once Dutch always Dutch)..I think you should. Why the hell not?? (to quote an infamous Texan candidate for Guv'ner)
btw..nice new pic D! I'm getting close to finally putting one on myself.. (I know I've all been waiting for it..)
I'll try to post again soon because I have emailed myself some links to remind me what I want to write about and poof, there goes my (free) time..

A picture tells a thousand words and witnesses the gruesome outcomes of this flawed war. It reminds me of the Vietnam War, when images helped turn the tide against the war. The parallels continue! Misinformation and untruths combine to form an unwinnable unjust conflict. But on this occasion the news has been filtered and distorted even more to form the basis of phony war on terror. Not many pictures either !!
best wishes
