Old Executive Office Building

Ever since my first trips to D.C. in the 70's - I have loved this building. Ones built in the so called modern age are bland, square and frankly - ugly!

So when I heard there was a fire in this building - I like so many others wondered if Cheney were trying to either burn down the building or create some havoc so that he could yet again get away with something. In chaos one can steal, pillage and do yet more damage to the constitution...

He and the shrub are fully capable of creating this type of diversion to deflect the news about the destruction of the CIA tapes.

And isn't it sad that we have come to a point in our country's life where we think that a vice president would or could intentionally burn down an historic building....but then again they destroyed Iraq's history and people - so why not here as well.

faux noise lies again

Faux noise is angry that Obama and Edwards refuse to do interviews on any of the faux noise programs. Poor babies. so what do they do - they continue the smear campaign against these two presidential hopefuls and think that will get them to appear on the station? DOH!

Watch this Brave New Films video

then go here and sign the open letter to Edwards and Obama in support of their decisions. [ You can also view the video at that page. ]

Impeach Cheney - YES

Robert Wexler - the Florida Rep said this:

The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccessary [sic] war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings.

If you agree - go HERE and sign the petition....

Impeachment is often understood - it does not mean that the person impeached is automatically removed from office - impeachment is the beginning of an investigate process that ends with the legal statement of charges. It is followed by a trial....

Why Pelosi started her term with the statement that impeachment i off the table amazed me then - but now we know that she is one who loves incumbents - both R's and D's I guess.

Why so few want to investigate these dangerous persons is scarier than the fact that they are so dangerous. Are they so scared of the shrub and cheney that they fear to take a deep legal look into the behavior of the last 6 -7 years [or more]. And if so scared - why?

Yea for the "pesky bloggers"

Remember when Nancy Pelosi told bloggers that she supported Wynn?
Though crediting activists for their "passion," Pelosi called it "a waste of time" for them to target Democrats. "They are advocates," she said. "We are leaders."
Well she is no longer a leader I respect. And ditto Harry Reid until a few hours ago when he tabled the FISA bill debate until after the Senate winter recess. While it is good he listened to and read the many phone calls and emails he got - why did he not lead on this issue before - why did he wait until he figuratively got hit on the head with it? He knew that the shrub had lied - he knew that this illegal wire tapping started BEFORE Sept 11, 2001 - in fact it started soon after the shrub was elected. And now mr 24% wants to retroactively immunize those telecoms that listened to you and me - and are still listening.

If I know that and the New York Times knows that - why did Harry Reid seem to not know it?

So keep up the pressure on all members of Congress - until they start listening to the people [and not illegally :-) ] - and stop listening to the money!
