Kucinich Offers Impeachment Articles Against Bush

Cusco Carmen emailed me a link to cbsnews.com that had information about Rep. Dennis Kucinich offering 35 articles of impeachment against Pres. bush.  I had heard nothing about this.  It seems that our media is still afraid (or too complicent) to confront Bush.  Has anyone else heard about this?

Thanks Carmen.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) introduced 35 articles of impeachment against President Bush on Monday night, reading the resolution into the Congressional Record.

Kucinich, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination this year, unveiled a litany of alleged illegal and improper acts by Bush, including war crimes.

Kucinich has introduced a similar impeachment resolution against Vice President Cheney. That resolution was referred to the House Judiciary Committee, which has taken no action on the measure. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top House Democratic leaders have stated that there will be no consideration of impeachment proceedings against Bush, calling the idea “off the table.”

Kucinich and other liberal Democrats, including Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), have sought the removal of the current administration, arguing that Bush and Cheney have lied to Congress and the American public about the reasons for invading Iraq in 2003 and abused their offices in order to conduct the “War on Terror” following the 9/11 attacks.

Name the series that this quote comes from.

If you don’t get it, check the read more link to see plenty of more great quotes from this groundbreaking series.  I took the whole thing from Wikipedia.

Huey:: Mr. Jones, it’s Huey. You ready?
James Earl Jones::Young man, I told you last time this isn’t funny. You’re going to get us both in trouble.
Huey:: Last time, I promise. Hold on. [Opens a three-way call]
George W. Bush:: [Answers the phone] This is Bush.
Huey:: Mr. President, please hold for Darth Vader.
James Earl Jones:: [In full Vader voice] President Bush, this is Darth Vader… I wanted to thank you for helping spread Evil throughout the galaxy!

United Nations World Food Program will cut in half its food supplies to the people of Darfur.

Last week, the United Nations World Food Program announced that it will cut half its food supplies to the people of Darfur because of a lack of funds and relentless attacks on its convoys.

Millions of Darfuris depend on this food supply. Without it, they will be pushed even closer to the knife-sharp edge of starvation.

Inaction is not an option when so many lives are at stake.

Congress is preparing to vote on a bill that will significantly increase funding for humanitarian aid and peacekeeping in Darfur. Your representative needs to hear from you NOW because the men, women, and children of Darfur cannot afford any more delays.

Tell Representative Saxton to support funding for security and humanitarian aid in Darfur.

Additional funding for Darfur can bring hope to the thousands who have weathered half a decade of genocide. It can provide peacekeepers with training and equipment to protect Darfuri civilians. It can deliver disaster and famine assistance to families desperately in need. And it can help the people of Sudan move towards democracy and determine their own path to peace.

We must meet our obligation to the people of Darfur. Congress has the purse strings. You have the voice. Make sure your voice – and the collective voice of hundreds of thousands of Darfuris – is heard.

Urge your representative to stand up for Darfur and fully fund peacekeeping and humanitarian aid.

With the United Nations World Food Program cutting its food aid to Darfur, the clock is ticking faster and louder than ever - we must act quickly to try to fill this crucial gap.

After you have sent a message to your representative, please click here to ask your friends and family to do the same.

Thank you for your tireless dedication to the people of Darfur.

Best regards,

Colleen Connors
Save Darfur Coalition

Quote of the (past) day.

“Dude, if Americans tolerated as much shit in their socks as they do in their president, they’d have mushrooms growing out of their badword ankles.”

2008 - Uncle Tom Award

With so-called black men like this, we don’t have to look for white people to take us down.  This is the most despiscable thing I’ve ever heard.

Oh by the way, Fox calls this man honorable.

Is America ready for Chris Rock as President?

I’m not saying Barack Obama is the “perfect” candidate

The other day I was listening to Joe Madison on satellite radio and a caller and he were talking about Obama’s campaign.  Madison often talks about how black people are undervalued, underestimated and marginalized in politics and within American culture.  On this particular day, I heard both of them saying how if Barack Obama were to become president that we would no longer be undervalued, underestimated and marginalized.  While I heard this, I didn’t really listen (at the time).  Today, it really hit me. And I realized how powerful that statement was.  While I don’t believe things will change overnight, can you imagine the paradigm shift, if the most powerful leader in the world were a black man?  Our kids and grandkids would have a completely different mindset about what black people can and cannot attain.

Can Mrs. Clinton Lose?

My boss told me about this little gem from the WSJ written by Peggy Noonan.  Wow!

If Hillary Clinton loses, does she know how to lose? What will that be, if she loses? Will she just say, “I concede” and go on vacation at a friend’s house on an island, and then go back to the Senate and wait?

Is it possible she could be so normal? Politicians lose battles, it’s part of what they do, win and lose. But she does not know how to lose. Can she lose with grace? But she does grace the way George W. Bush does nuance.

She often talks about how tough she is. She has fought “the Republican attack machine” that has tried to “stop” her, “end” her, and she knows “how to fight them.” She is preoccupied to an unusual degree with toughness. A man so preoccupied would seem weak. But a woman obsessed with how tough she is just may be lethal.

Does her sense of toughness mean that every battle in which she engages must be fought tooth and claw, door to door? Can she recognize the line between burly combat and destructive, never-say-die warfare? I wonder if she is thinking: What will it mean if I win ugly? What if I lose ugly? What will be the implications for my future, the party’s future? What will black America, having seen what we did in South Carolina, think forever of me and the party if I do low things to stop this guy on the way to victory? Can I stop, see the lay of the land, imitate grace, withdraw, wait, come back with a roar down the road? Life is long. I am not old. Or is that a reverie she could never have? What does it mean if she could never have it?

Obama takes on question of his Christianity

This is just sickening to me.  The last thing I care about is the religious preference of a person because what comes out of their mouth is less important than how they carry themselves.  I know many people that consider themselves members of religions that act as if GOD doesn’t exist.  They belittle others and act like heathens.

Who cares if Obama is a Muslim, Christian or whatever?  No religion has a patent on good behavior.  It is really sad that people choose to stoop to these sort of tactics.  Regardless if he is Muslim, Christian, or Atheist, if he pledges to support the Constitution then he should be trusted to do that.  Hell, we trusted Christian George W. Bush to do it and look where we are now.  Do you actually think that Bush’s version of Christian vows are supportive to the cause of Christianity.  Is Bush a good ambassador for converting people to Christianity?  I don’t think so.  Let’s keep religion out of politics.  Or, better yet, let’s all be good Americans and let people choose their own religion without proselytizing or berating a person if they choose something different than you do. 

OK?

By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer Mon Jan 21, 7:22 AM ET

Barack Obama is stepping up his effort to correct the misconception that he’s a Muslim now that the presidential campaign has hit the Bible Belt.

At a rally to kick off a weeklong campaign for the South Carolina primary, Obama tried to set the record straight from an attack circulating widely on the Internet that is designed to play into prejudices against Muslims and fears of terrorism.

“I’ve been to the same church — the same Christian church — for almost 20 years,” Obama said, stressing the word Christian and drawing cheers from the faithful in reply. “I was sworn in with my hand on the family Bible. Whenever I’m in the United States Senate, I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. So if you get some silly e-mail ... send it back to whoever sent it and tell them this is all crazy. Educate.”

Obama is referring to a debunked chain e-mail circulating widely on the Internet that suggests he is hiding his Islamic roots and may be a terrorist in disguise. It says he was sworn into the Senate on the Quran and turns his back on the flag during the pledge.

There are some truths in the e-mail’s details. Obama’s middle name is Hussein. His father and stepfather were Muslim. And he spent part of his childhood in Indonesia, a largely Muslim country. But he attended secular and Catholic schools, not a radical madrassa.

What’s the matter with people?

Why don’t people understand what voting is all about?  I’ve been hearing more and more people say this or a variation of it, “I’m not voting for [insert candidate here] because I don’t think [insert candidate here] will win and I don’t want to waste my vote.”

What’s the matter with people?  Elections aren’t popularity contests!

The problem is that so many people pay too much attention to published polls that they forget the purpose of THEIR individual vote.  They feel that if a poll says that candidate X is ahead, then that candidate is the only viable one running.

NH is an example of the fallacy of that type of faulty thinking.  Obama was ahead in almost every poll yet he lost to Clinton.  This should be proof enough to explain it.

Has anyone else heard this mess?
