WITHOUT YOU THERE IS ONE LESS VOICE FOR JUSTICE

NO DEMOCRACY SURVIVES AN APATHETIC POPULACE

I may not be Cindy Sheehan. I may not agree with everything she believes. But basically, I can't argue with what she has written below. I too am tired of the "sit back and take it" attitude when I fundamentally disagree with Bush's behavior as my national leader and representative. I disagree with everything his actions stand for. I think his behavior has been criminal. And I think Congress is wrong to turn the other way. And I think Americans have gotten used to letting the status quo politicians in
Washington, D.C. do what they want as long as our daily lives can remain the same. No one really wants to start a revolution unless it's for the sake of power. No one looks to turn their lives upside down. But if this country is going to be a democracy - it needs to start behaving like one. "We the People" means all of us need to pay attention to what our governmental officials are doing in our name

and

hold

them

accountable.

It's our country and we need to make that clear to those politicians in Washington, D.C.

It's not the President's government.

It is our country. It is our government.

Let's take it back.

Ban paid lobbyists.

Let the people speak and let the people be heard.

Get a voice or be willing to be voiceless.

We need the poor people to vote these rich people out of government.

We need to act like free people.

Freedom needs to be exercised

or you don’t have any.

When people hear that I am an activist about Darfur, they thank me

Like I’m Enough.

But I’m NOT Enough.

Cindy Sheehan is not enough.

Michael Moore is not enough.

Without you, we have one less voice for justice.

We have one less voice for equal opportunity.

We have one less voice for the voiceless.

It is time to stand up and claim our rights.

No one is going to do that for you.

You have to do it for yourself.

There are plenty of people who don’t want you to know

that they are political crooks.

Because if you get off your apathy

and see what they are doing to you

to your families,

then they won’t be able to have power over you.

Open government must be demanded,

even in the United States of America.

Call Out the Instigator

By Cindy Sheehan

I’m not backing off. I tried to remove myself from the political realm of the US, what BushCo is turning into an Evil Empire, but the blatant audacity of George commuting Scooter’s sentence (he’s not ruling out a full pardon -- and you know he will) has dragged me kicking and screaming back in. I can’t sit back and let this BushCo drag our country further down into the murky quagmire of Fascism and violence, taking the rest of the world with them!

I have sat quietly back these past five weeks as the slaughter in Iraq sorrowfully surges along with George’s bloody escalation -- and as the philosophical opposition to the war has soared to almost four out of every five Americans. I have remained silent when Senator Barack Obama said that impeachment is only reserved for “grave, grave” breaches! Well, BushCo has created hundreds of thousands of graves dug by their lies and greed. For cripes’ sake, George admitted to breaking the FISA Act (which is a felony) that also breeched the 4th Amendment to our Constitution that already prohibited illegal search and seizure. How was Bill Clinton’s offense graver than George's, Dick's, or Scooter's? Did we ever think that the criminality and arrogance of the Nixon White House would be eclipsed in our time with nary a “baaaah” from the Sheeple in Congress?

George has said that America doesn’t “do torture” when we have all seen the images of torture from Abu Ghraib (don’t believe your lyin’ eyes) and know that hundreds of people sold to the US Army for an immoral bounty are incarcerated within the inhumane confines of Guantanamo Prison which is right in our own back yard.

I have had to bite my tongue---HARD---as the George and Dick crime cabal, (formerly known has the executive branch) have claimed that their offices are not to be held up to the same standards of accountability and control as any other entity in the human race, governmental or private.

It has been recently reported that Nancy Pelosi said that impeachment is not “worth it.” Her faulty reasoning is that impeachment would take too much time because they don’t have the votes. If they could “whip” their own Democratic caucus into shape to defend and protect our Constitution and the people of Iraq and our soldiers as they whupped, cajoled, threatened and browbeat the caucus into attaching “non-binding” time lines onto the last war funding bill, then impeachment would not only be possible, but likely.

The recent commutation of I. Scooter Libby’s sentence, however, was the straw that broke my camel’s back of exhausted ennui. Patrick Fitzgerald is a thoughtful and thorough prosecutor who did a heroic job of bringing at least one of the Bush Crime Mob to justice. Even though we were all very pleased, we knew that it was not enough and that Mr. Fitzgerald would delve deeper into the feces infested executive branch. The lawlessness of the Bush Administration has reached wild west proportions and the inmates definitely have control of the US(A)sylum.

A very dear friend of mine, Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus, is being harassed by the Air Force for “Conduct Unbecoming an Officer and a Gentleman” because “The Rev” fulfills his duty as an Officer and a Gentleman honorably by protesting Iraq and the Fascist Bush Regime almost constantly. The Rev is still in Individual Ready Reserve so the Air Force believes it is within its parameters to pursue the charges, although every “Officer and Gentleman(woman)” should be protesting the atrocious mistakes in the Middle East. After The Rev’s hearing on July 12th, (in Macon, GA) he is going to begin a “symbolic” walk from the Reverend Martin Luther King’s grave (Atlanta, GA) to DC---I am going to be there for him and to begin the march, but I am not going to make it symbolic.

We are going to walk from Atlanta, GA to Congress beginning July 13th [the Rev's hearing has been postponed for a month...so our walk will be starting on July 10th from Camp Casey] and ending up in DC on July 23rd to send the mis-leaders back home to face the music of justice in their own districts.

It is about time us “peasants” (in the eyes of the Fascist Ruling Elite) march on DC with our “pitchforks” of righteous anger and our “torches” of truth to demand the ouster of BushCo. I have a dream of the detention centers that George has built and filled being instead filled with Orange Clad neo-cons and neo-connettes.

If Congress won’t dig BushCo’s political grave, it is the People’s job to do so. Thomas Jefferson said that we need a Revolution every 20 years, or so, to keep our Republic honest. Over 225 years have passed since our last Revolution (if you don't count the War Between the States) and we are long overdue for one. Turn off your TVs, kiss your pets goodbye, bring the kids and flock to the federal seat of corruption, or join us on our walk there, for a People's Accountability Movement to be in the face of the Criminal BushCo and the Complicit Congress for the last week of session before they go on their undeserved vacations (why do they get vacations when the Iraqi parliamentarians don’t?)

Our lives like dreams endure

and reach out over the universe.

Nothing real is to itself alone.

There are sidestreams to rivers,

there are overtones to thought.

Great love reaches out

and is involved in the world’s purposes.

Our loves are only symbols of an unknown immortality.

Where communion is deep,

there exists no separation at all,

for what needs telling those we love is understood already,

and what is supposed to be gone and past

is often more real than ever.

Through the sculpture of experience,

that part of ourselves which survives, like cloud, resolves continuously.

This is the spirit of my hope and my religion.

Cedric Wright

Words of the Earth

“NEVER AGAIN”

Words that mean nothing without political will.

Where there is a will there is always a way,

and where there is no will there is no way,

Mr. Bush

STOP AND PREVENT GENOCIDE

What good is a democracy that loses its moral compass?

>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:

CALL THE PRESIDENT AT 202-456-1111

Email: president@whitehouse.gov

Send him a message that what you think counts.

His address:

White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, D.C. 20500, USA

Did you know that citizens who live in Washington, D.C. do not have a voting representative in the U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives? It is true and
it is wrong. That is unAmerican. That needs to be changed. Those who live in Washington, D.C. know more about what is going on in our federal government than any other city in the country. They live there. I say let them choose our next President. : )
