Let's hear how we tried to bully those gentle folk rockers in the UK so bush could try to erase the evolutionary advances they gave us vis-a-vis THE BEATLES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It takes courage to stand up when everyone else is content to sit in fear or ignorance. It takes courage to demand the truth and work hard to get it. It takes courage to sometimes be in the minority and keep pitching until the rest understand. It takes courage to be a peacemaker when everyone else is screaming for blood. It takes courage to try when it looks too tough because you never know what you can do until you try.
For all our elected leaders who act like pawns in pathetic lockstep with the Administration rather than intelligent leaders, please remind them what courage is. Integrity and honesty are becoming lost qualities in Congress, but a few have stepped up. Let's celebrate those unfaltering individuals who continue to show courage and show them that they are not alone and we also are not afraid.

Thank you for your accurate and insightful reply. do you feel a growing sense of community as i do?, We were so demoralized by bushcos constant daily assault on our country/people and our way of life. It seesm as though it took Cindy to galvanize us, but now we are coming together in a way that is truly inspiring. Take care.

An honest person has no fear of the facts. Answer the questions posed by Congressman Conyers regarding the Downing Street Memos.

Dear Dems,
YOu have smashed all records for craven capitulation to fascist, un-Christ-like, un-American thugs in the White House.
Bravely done, lads and ladies.

tell us of your military service or are you one of the typical right wing nut chicken hawks?. Please go sign up and head out to Irag.

We need to save what is left of our beloved Democracy which is quickly being replaced by a Fascist Theocracy of the Religious Reich. If Clinton was impeached for a mere sexual act, then the Bush Regime MUST be held accountable for the lies as PROVEN in the Downing Street Minutes. It is as though the nation and the main stream media is held asleep by the desire to have a strong Father figure in control. Bush does not qualify as that figure! He went AWOL on the easiest of war time assignments leaving others to do the real fighting in Vietnam; now his propagandist spin projects the image of a strong tree cutting macho-alpha male! If we don't break through the lies and quite literally save our Democracy, we will all become 2nd class citizens in the neo-con Religious Reich theocracy! It is time to take action. It is time to ween the dependent 51% of the population from their father figure obsession for the sake of freedom! We must not let their fear of real freedoms take away ours forever! Thank you Cindy for holding the torch of freedom in our nation's present darkness!

Review Downing Street Memo

I agree with the previous statement:

An honest person has no fear of the facts. Answer the questions posed by Congressman Conyers regarding the Downing Street Memos

Americans have a right to know the facts.

The nation has lost respect for the political process and the word the the current administration.

The most significant form of support for our troops would be to bring them home and stop lying about the motivations for this war.

The Bush administration took the nation to war on the basis of a bundle of ever-changing arguments, few of which stood up once the fighting began. Ever since, the White House has tried to shore up its positions by discounting all bad news and shielding the civilian public from any war-connected inconvenience. But that strategy has very clearly stopped working. It is time for a somber acceptance of the war's costs, and some specific talk about what the nation's goals and strategy are in Iraq.Aug. 6 was the fourth anniversary of that fateful 2001 Crawford vacation day when George W. Bush responded to an intelligence briefing titled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States" by going fishing.This is a president who hasn't foreseen any of the setbacks in the war he fabricated against an enemy who did not attack inside the United States in 2001.
As of August 23, 2005, 1872 American troops and between 22,500 to 100,00 Iraqi civilians have been killed in the war in Iraq. Domestically, the bill for the war has reached $204.6 billion.
We should quit using the term "war", since it isn't now nor has it ever been "a war", its a police action for the oil companies, bankers and military industrial complex companies such as Halliburton oil, bechtel and the carlyle group. Our children are dying for "corporatism"! What is that?
In an article several months back that appeared in Harpers, Naomi Klein suggested that the dismantling of Iraq's centralized economy, coming as it did with massive layoffs, greatly fueled the resistance. Hundreds of thousands of laid off workers were attracted to fighting against foreign interests which had rendered them unemployed.
The USA has Muslim allies in the countries of Turkey, Pakistan and Saudia Arabia (and others), which could form a Muslim force to provide security for the Iraqi government,and you can support our troops by bringing them home alive.
IVAW (Iraq Veterans Against the War) is working with senators and congress people to draft the "Bring Them Home Now" Resolution, which calls for the immediate withdrawal of occupying forces in Iraq. Please be one of them!

..please support the attempted investigation of the Downing St. memos and the resulting resolution that would force this...thank you.

The country is at a crossroads right now, and very much in need of leadership that has the courage to do right thing. For almost five years now, millions have watched in frustration as a small group of greedy ideologues have taken over the country, with the aid of an enabling media.
The opposition party, (with a few notable exceptions), have done nothing to represent their constituents.
The country is going to go in a new direction, with or without the present leadership. You can decide now whether or not you will lead, or get out of way.

The destruction that the Bush regime has brought upon the world is insane. Congress was so quick to cave in to the fear mongering after 911 and sign away our civil liberties with the unquestioned passing of the Patriot Act. F.E.M.A. was put under the control of Homeland Security and we all see what type of security that meant for the poor folks in New Orleans. Hundreds of thousands of people have died, and Iraq is radioactive for the next 4.5 Billion years. We have yet to see all of the birth defects that American soldiers will be seeing in their children to come from exposure to depleted uranium. This is a subject that is hardly ever discussed. The Iraqi mothers have had to endure these horrible birth defects for so long they are afraid to give birth.The Iraqi mothers have had to endure these horrible birth defects for so long they are afraid to give birth. When these type of horrible birth defects happen to the children of American soldiers the administration will continue to lie about them like they did with Gulf war Sydrome and Agent Orange. It is sickeing to think of the evil and madness that is Bush , Cheney, Runsfield, Condi and the rest of them. The Bush family has a long history of war profitering and does not care about the horrors they commit to the rest of the world. All of these horrors- the crumbling schools,global warming and environmental devastation , New Orleans under water and people dying waiting for the Feds to respond,economy in ruins, and an illegal war that has killed untold thousands on both sides are direct results of an administration gone mad with greed.
The world cant wait! Drive out the Bush regime ! They must be held accountable . They are all war criminals!
