Psychiatrist Says Bush Needs To Be Impeached .

This sign is still up!!! Psychiatrist says Bush needs to be impeached for the good of "we the people".

"We the people" have been and are being badly abused by the Bush administration. We've been disenfranchised by Diebold, a major Bush donor. Our Congress, our elected Representatives, have been corrupted, intimidated into going along with shredding of the Constitution.

The incoming Democrats, whom we elected in protest, plan to play ball with Bush. We've been lied into Iraq and our taxes are being used to support all kinds of atrocities there. Our reputation as an honorable nation has been destroyed, and hatred has been stirred up against us all over the world. Our treasury is being drained, the public sector, on which we rely for essential services and infrastructure, is being starved. Rampant cronyism and ripoffs go unchecked.

Our land is being defiled with pollutants, clearcutting, exploitation of pristine areas. Standards of cleanliness and safety have been lowered or ignored. Public utilities are being "privatized", including the health care system, the prison system, the energy system, so that the public welfare is subordinated to profit. The commons is being destroyed.

We are being systematically stripped of our freedoms. Freedom of the press has all but vanished, and the TV networks and major newspapers have become propaganda organs. Freedom of assembly and speech are being threatened. Individual privacy has disappeared. Habeas corpus is no more. Our future is being mortgaged. We are leaving our kids an overheating planet, since the Bushies won't acknowledge global warming, let alone do anything about it. We are leaving them an enormous debt, and a set of laws that allows fascism to be imposed at will.

Our emotions are being manipulated by the constant fake terror alerts. Meanwhile we are being terrorized into submission to Bush, with reports of concentration camps under construction by Halliburton, warrantless tapping of our phone calls and emails, scary legislation like the Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Act, and the Military Commissions Act. I could go on and on- you, reader, can add your own outrages to the list. The point is, "we the people" are being abused by the members of the Executive Branch, whose job it is to carry out OUR will, the will of "we the people". As a people, we are now depressed. We feel helpless to stop the depredations.

Our massive repudiation of the Iraq occupation and the Bush administration at the polls seems to have been pointless. The Iraq occupation is escalating again- more troops, more money for Halliburton and Carlyle. The Democrats has said that "impeachment is not on the table".

A feeling of hopelessness and dread of what the future will bring is hanging over us.

We are like a wife trapped in an abusive marriage, who feels that duty and economics prevent her from leaving. Perhaps she still feels some love and loyalty to the husband who mistreats her. Perhaps she feels she deserves ill treatment, or that she's too weak and pitiful to do anything about it. She becomes depressed and resigned to a dismal life. When a woman is being abused by her husband, it is commonly accepted that he is committing criminal acts, and needs to be brought to justice. First of all, she is separated from him, and he is served with a restraining order to prevent further abuses. Safety first. The case is then investigated by the District Attorney, and if enough evidence is found, he is indicted and brought to trial. If convicted, he may serve some time, depending on how bad the abuse has been. All this helps the victim to realize that it is wrong to be mistreated, and that justice is on her side. She regains a sense of power and self-esteem, and is able to manage her life. She sees some hope and happiness ahead.

We the people need to separate from Bush and Cheney. The mechanism for this is impeachment. Pelosi's plan to "work with" Bush is co-dependence, allowing the perpetrator to continue his abuse. In this case, enabling the criminals to continue their ripoff of the public amounts to co-conspiracy, opening the Congress people who go along to criminal charges. A statement by House leaders of intention to investigate for impeachment, and a REFUSAL to cooperate with Bush plans to escalate in Iraq, etc, etc, would amount to a restraining order, preventing further harm to "we the people". Safety first. This should be followed by a thorough investigation and impeachment by the House, which acts as the "district attorney"- the attorney for "we the people". Impeachment = indictment. The evidence will surely be strong enough to warrant conviction by the Senate, even if the Democrats do lack a 2/3 majority there. Public airing of Bush and Cheney's high crimes through the House investigation will force the Senate to convict, and eject them from office. They can then be tried as ordinary citizens in a regular criminal court.

We the people will become empowered, as we are supposed to be under our Constitution. We will be able to restore paper ballots and ensure fair elections. We will be able to address the pressing problems of global warming, budgetary crisis, nuclear pollution, and all the other ills which we will inherit from 6 years of Bush's plundering. Our self-esteem as a nation, and our reputation among nations, will be restored.Impeachment is the only way this can happen. Impeachment is peaceful, legal and democratic.

Power to the people! In the name of the Prince of Peace, who taught us to speak truth to power.

"Frankenstein Farming"

CONSUMER groups have warned of "Frankenstein farming" after US food chiefs declared meat and milk from cloned animals safe to eat.The US Food and Drug Administration concluded cloned animals were no different from conventional livestock and food from them will not need to be labelled as such.

But the UK Food Commission, Britain's independent food watchdog, condemned the proposal as "a giant step in the wrong direction".

If the FDA fully approves cloning, which is still on hold pending public consultation, US farmers will be able to export produce from these animals without any labelling.
The proposals have horrified animal welfare and consumer groups.

A report by FDA scientists Larisa Rudenko and John C. Matheson concludes that cloned animals are "virtually indistinguishable" from conventional livestock and therefore no labelling is required.

In time, fast-growing, super-size animals could be made capable of delivering big profits for farmers.

Consumer groups say not enough is known about the effects of eating cloned animals because the technology to produce them has been available only for a few years.
They also point out many people might have an ethical objection and will want labelling to ensure they are allowed to make an informed choice about what they buy and eat.
Carol Tucker Foreman, of the Consumer Federation of America, said the FDA was ignoring research showing cloning results in more animal deaths and deformities than other reproductive technologies.

A UK Food Commission spokesman said: "I think consumers would be rightly wary and suspicious. We don't know if there would be any health risk, but many people would feel it is somehow wrong. It is a giant step in the wrong direction."

By The Light Of Morning

Even Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is now admitting that Bush misled us, saying, "I was wrong. I am not pleased about it at all and I think all Americans should be concerned about this." O'Reilly on Good Morning America, as quoted in Reuters, "Pundit O'Reilly Now Skeptical About Bush", 2/10/04:

U.S. Presidency to be Outsourced

WASHINGTON DC -- Congress today announced that the office of President of the United States of America will be outsourced to India as of May 1, 2007. The move is being made to save the President's $400,000 yearly salary, and also a record $521 billion in deficit expenditures and related overhead the office has incurred during the past 5 years.

"We believe this is a wise move financially. The cost savings should be significant," stated CongressmanThomas Reynolds (R-WA). Reynolds, with the aid of the Government Accounting Office, has studied outsourcing of American jobs extensively. "We cannot expect to remain competitive on the world stage with the current level of cash outlay," Reynolds noted. Mr. Bush was informed by email this morning of his termination. Preparations for the job move have been underway for sometime.

Rupinder Singh of IndusTeleservices, Mumbai, India, will be assuming the office of President as of January 21st. Mr. Singh was born in the United States while his Indian parents were vacationing at Niagara Falls, thus making him eligible for the position. He will receive a salary of$320 (USD) a month but with no health coverage orother benefits. It is believed that Mr. Singh will beable to handle his job responsibilities without asupport staff. Due to the time difference between the U.S. and India, he will be working primarily at night,when few offices of the U.S. Government will be open. "Working nights will allow me to keep my day job at the American Express call center, "stated Mr. Singhin an exclusive interview. "I am excited about this position. I always hoped I would be President someday." A Congressional spokesperson noted that while Mr.Singh may not be fully aware of all the issues involved in the office of President, this should not be a problem because Bush was not familiar with the issues either. Mr. Singh will rely upon a script tree that will enable him to respond effectively to most topics of concern. Using these canned responses, he can address common concerns without having to understand the underlying issues at all. "We know these scripting tools work," stated the spokesperson."President Bush has used them successfully for years."

Bush will receive health coverage, expenses, and salary until his final day of employment. Following a two week waiting period, he will be eligible for $240a week unemployment for 13 weeks. Unfortunately he will not be eligible for Medicaid, as his unemployment benefits will exceed the allowed limit. Mr. Bush has been provided the out placement services of Manpower, Inc. to help him write a resume and prepare for his upcoming job transition. According to Manpower, Mr.Bush may have difficulties in securing a new position due to limited practical work experience. A greeter position at Wal-Mart was suggested due to Bush's extensive experience shaking hands and smiling no matter what the circumstances. Another possibility is Bush's re-enlistment in theTexas Air National Guard. His prior records are conspicuously vague but should he choose this option,he would likely be stationed in Waco, TX for a month,before being sent to Iraq, a country he has visited."I've been there, I know all about Iraq," stated Mr.Bush, who gained invaluable knowledge of the country in a visit to the Baghdad Airport's terminal and giftshop. Sources in Baghdad and Falluja say Mr. Bush would receive a warm reception from local Iraqis. They have asked to be provided with details of his arrival so that they might arrange an appropriate welcome.

Saddam Santa in the morning light

NORAD Keeps Track of Santa

Despite being pounded by the Holiday Blizzard of 2006, North American Aerospace Defense Command remains on alert for the nation and ready to track Santa Claus, according to NORAD officials. “NORAD Tracks Santa Operations Center is schedule to begin operations as scheduled at 2 a.m. Christmas Eve,” said Michael Perini, Director of NORAD and U.S. Northern Command Public Affairs.
More than 800 Santa tracking volunteers will cycle through the center answering telephone calls and e-mails from children around the world wanting to get a fix on Santa Claus’ whereabouts.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command annually "tracks" the flight of Santa Claus and associated reindeer across the skies on Christmas Eve, posting sighting data and imagery of the icon on its website.

If they can track Santa,Where in the fuck was NORAD on 9-11

Neither Rain Nor Snow...

Ten foot long & waterproof

This was up for more than 24 hrs
Rain can't stop these! I again am using the plastic rolls (windowtreatments) I found, so let it rain!
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country... Corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
Abraham Lincoln, 1864

This sign say "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
James Madison

Ho Ho Ho

I wonder if Saddam Santa has WMD's in his bag...


History is written by the victors.

It is with this notion that I am trying to understand the statements of President George W. Bush during his recent visit to Vietnam, in the shadow of the ongoing war in Iraq.

Bush stated there are lessons we can learn from Vietnam to help us achieve victory in Iraq. His two lessons: That it takes time for freedom to triumph, and that "We'll succeed, unless we quit."Trying to make sense of these lessons requires a greater leap from reality than I am willing to take. Are we to assume that Bush thinks the U.S. could have won the war in Vietnam, and that country would be a better place today, if we hadn't left, if we were still there bombing them into oblivion? But then, that contradicts Bush's other statements, on how Vietnam has improved since we quit the place 31 years ago."For decades, you had been torn apart by war," Bush said. "And today, the Vietnamese people are at peace and seeing the benefits of reform."

All of these statements are even more surreal when you add in the image of Bush standing in front of a bust of Ho Chi Minh, visiting with government officials who defeated the American forces, handing the U.S. its most serious military defeat to date. Yes, there are lessons to be learned from mistakes of the past. But first, we must recognize the mistakes, or we will be doomed to repeat them. And when it comes to the war in Iraq, we are in a serious déjà vu state of mind.

Let's take Bush's central strategy for victory, that "as the Iraqis stand up, we'll stand down." Boiled down, this means we train the Iraqis to take over the fighting so American forces can start coming home. This is Richard Nixon's Vietnamization doctrine with a new coat of paint, but the same tired engine under the hood.If you want a lesson from history, here's a good one:

Vietnamization didn't work, even with a far more cohesive military force than we have in Iraq, armed to the teeth with our best weapons. Meanwhile, the U.S. military is afraid to hand over any heavy weapons to the Iraqi forces for fear they will use them on each other, and on coalition forces.

What do you say when your current policy is failing worse than the old failed policy it was based on?Maybe we should ask Henry Kissinger. He had a front-row seat for Vietnamization. He has also been one of the main figures advising Bush to stay the course in Iraq. Yet now, he has come out to say the war in Iraq cannot be won militarily. Maybe this old warhorse has started to learn from his own history.Perhaps the real lessons of history need to come from the winners of these conflicts.

In The Associated Press story of Bush's visit to Vietnam, the reporter spoke to Huynh Tuyet, 71, a veteran of the war who lost a hand fighting against American forces. "Even though the Americans were more powerful with all their massive weapons, the main factor in war is the people," he said. "The Vietnamese people were very determined. We would not give up. That's why we won."

The Iraqi people seem very determined as well, and there is no sign of them giving up. A recent poll taken in Iraq shows that a wide majority of respondents feel American troops provoke more violence than they prevent, and they want us to leave.

Maybe another important lesson to learn from Vietnam is that the country didn't start getting better until after we left.Bush didn't set out to repeat the Vietnam War game plan, yet it seems that is exactly what he has accomplished so far.

The only real debate left is whether Iraq will end the same way Vietnam did. Are we doomed to defeat, or is there a way to put the pieces back together? Whatever your viewpoint, it's clear we aren't going to achieve a result different than Vietnam unless we stop following the same script. And that's the best lesson we can learn.

Bringing New Meaning To ‘Firing Blind’

This is to hard to believe

Rep. Edmund Kuempel, a Republican from Seguin, about 30 miles east of San Antonio, has introduced a bill to exempt legally blind people from a Texas law that prohibits hunters from using laser sights or lights in hunting. Critics of the practice say the laser lights make the animals freeze in place, which diminishes the sport of the kill.

"It gets more people in the outdoors, ( I for one am staying out of the outdoors if there are blind ppl in the woods with guns) and gives them more pride in hunting, because it gives them a better chance of harvesting an animal," said Kuempel, an avid hunter. He noted that about 15 states allow blind hunters to use lasers.

"Hurry Up & Wait"

With Pentagon officials largely rejecting recommendations made by the Iraq Study Group to withdraw all U.S. combat forces over the next 15 months, President Bush warned yesterday that he would not be rushed into making a decision on a shift in policy.
Why rush it's not his kids dying + The Bush Crime Family & all his buddys are making way to much money. Didn't King George II do the same thing when Hurricane Katrina hit?

The Iraq Study Group was put together for the election & was never meant to be followed. It was formed to make it look like King George II cared.

As President Bush weighs new policy options for Iraq, strong support has coalesced in the Pentagon behind a military plan to "double down" in Iraq with a substantial buildup in American troops, an increase in industrial aid and a major combat offensive against Muqtada Sadr, the radical Shiite leader impeding development of the Iraqi government.
Isn't "double down" a gambling term for upping a bet? But they aren't gambling with poker chips they are gambling with LIVES!

This sign is 1/4 plywood nailed to the legs of an old billboard.

President fiddles around as people die

by James Ridgeway

What is going on in the United States? Why won't Bush take decisive action in the Hurricane Katrina disaster and send in the military? He has control of the world's mightiest military machine—thousands of planes, trucks, boats, expertly trained men and women. Where are these people? How can the National Guard be so close to providing help, as the public is told, yet still there are people dying on the sidewalks of a major city?

Where has the Congress been? Why has it taken so long to call an emergency session? Why can't the federal government act?

Look back at Bush as the crisis gathered: He sits on his ranch. Over and over, his government issues dire warnings of the hurricane that is coming. The mayor of New Orleans starts the evacuation. Bush sits there, still on vacation. The storm strikes. Still he sits there. Then he acts. What does he do? He extends a helping hand to the oil industry, releasing some oil from the reserves and cutting pollution control. But the price of gas rises to even higher levels. The industry need more profits. Only in America can an industrial giant get away with saying there's a shortage when they're swimming in surplus. And Bush? For him, it's one more payoff to his campaign contributors. And the people of New Orleans? They sit on the baking rooftops and sidewalks. No water. No food. No help.

Then Bush acts again. He is decisive. On Wednesday, he gets in his plane and flies—flies real low, okay?—over the devastation. And then he goes to Washington and, as the papers say, "mobilizes" the rescue effort. He says: "It is so devastating that it is hard to describe it. Nine-eleven was a manmade attack. This was a natural disaster.

"New Orleans is more devastated than New York— and just physically devastated as is the coast of Mississippi, so we've got a lot of work to do and we'll get it done."
How would he know? Bush was sitting in a bunker under a cornfield on 9-11 while New York organized its own rescue.

He would not go to New York on that day. And now the best he can do is look out the window of his plane at the hurricane. His government says he'd like to visit—maybe even tomorrow—but the White House wants to make sure the president doesn't impede the rescue effort.
So he sits in the White House while the people he governs, the people of the South, die in the heat because they can't get a glass of water in the wealthiest country of the world. No wonder there are looters.

The president mocks us all.,ridgewayweb2,67481,2.html
