Sheehan to Try to Meet with Governor About War


ABC News 10
Written for the web by Elizabeth Bishop, Internet News Producer

Vacaville mother and anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan plans to go to the State Capitol today to ask Gov. Schwarzenegger to pull California's National Guard troops out of Iraq.

So far, the governor's office has not agreed to meet with Sheehan.

Sheehan has toured the nation protesting the war since her son, Casey, died in Iraq last year. In August, she camped outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, hoping to meet with him to confront him about the war.

Sheehan wants to deliver a letter to the governor. The letter reads, in part: "California is suffering each day as its law enforcement, corrections and firefighters are called to a war in Iraq which does not protect the people of California, leaving the state in a weakened position. California tax dollars are also disproportionately spent on this war. California men and women are killed and maimed in this war, and their families are left in ruins, as I too well know."

This COMMIE MOMMIE has too much time on her hands.

This woman and her supporters should be tried and shot for treason against the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. These people are being supported by terrorist cells and those who wish Americans to be divided, like Vietnam, for an easy win. Please see what the communist leader at the time of the Vietnam war, has said about protesters in the U.S. If you don't think they are America's true enemies then you must be part of them. It's time for America to unite in her strengh and weed these people who promote division of the people by any means, which includes violence on Americas soil. Please gather at each of their rallies and show them true AMERICAN PRIDE.
A.V.M

are the traitorous bastards claiming a grieving mother who sacrificed her child is a "traitor".

Those who should be shot as traitors are the same who would violate the constitution by attempting to silence dissent through their rhetoric.

To get away from her, Casey RE-ENLISTED.

Pathetic.

Yes, that's how he referred to her too.

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it."
-- Edward R. Murrow

"The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair."
-- H.L. Mencken

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
-- Theodore Roosevelt

"Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear."
-- Harry Truman

"Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed -- and no republic can survive"
-- John Kennedy

Weed out the dividing people? Start with Newt Gingrich and Karl Rove. They are America's true enemies--enemies of freedom, forthrightness, fair trade, and fair taxation. I've been to a bunch of America's anti-war rallies. The "protest-the-protestors" who are "brave" enough to show up hide their bold faces behind their placards and refuse to have their picture taken. They would be so great in battle, I'm sure.

All of these "neopatriots" with their yellow ribbons need to sign up themselves or at least send their kids and relieve our soldiers in Iraq. Reply and I will be happy to set you up with an Armed Forces application from the Department of Defense.

Yet another freeper who likes to babble showing his complete ignorance. Why don't you go to Iraq, little boy?

Why aren't you strapping on a suicide bomb belt? Thought so.

oh, nice comeback. In case you hadn't noticed, we ARE going, unlike you cowards.

When do you want to pass the swastikas out?
This mother gave up her child for Dubya's dubious cause- no proven link between Al quaeda and Iraq; No WMDs. All the Militant Islamists of 9/11 were from saudi Arabia, and bin Laden was an Afghan freedom fighter in the 80s supported by the Reagan Administration. WTF?!?
This is not a personal attack on Geo Bush. His POLICIES are ruining the USA. I hope you are a military veteran- if not, go join up and fight if you believe in this so strongly.
1st Amendment Rights forever!

(Capitalism), eventually becomes a monopoly as in archer daniels, walmart,the five giant corporations that own the main st. media. etc. It ends up destoying competition and becomes a plutocracy. And no-one will know it. In turn, because it now controls all banking world wide,and most of the worlds business as well as most dems and even more repugs,unless this one paragraph can convince you to look up the bilderburgers, trilateralist, and the c.f.r. you can close your mind and call me a commie liberal or you can check these sites out, are you cool aid drinkers aware of the disaster our country is in right now

The only commie here is you . Your ilk is sending all our jobs to China and then calling anti war Moms who lost sons communist. Shame on you, go to china and youll fit right in.

Been there. It stinks.

This COMMIE MOMMIE needs a job.

I bet the "terminator" is just as scared of her as Shrub was! Hey, that's American "machomen" for you; they only like women who say "Yes Sir!", "No Sir!", "Thee bags full Sir!" just so they can continue deluding themselves about what big machomen they are.

Come on Women of America! You go for it Girls! Cindy for President"

Alan

I was wondering why Mrs. Cindy Sheehan , with all her energy she could put it to better use. Why don't she go down on skid road @ help the poor people she has a lot of help Misheal Moore and other that are her followers. She could take blankets @ect to the flood victims. What a waste of money @time to get some strokes to feed for her ego. BEENER

She's learning to be lazy from Jesse Jackasson. Why work? Stupid people will give her money.

And an apartment too.

Fuck all. Anyone who sees this woman as anything other than a grieving mom who doesn't want to see any more innocent lives crushed in the jaws of governmental corruption, greed and hegemony is a raving, blind sociopath, just like Jr the 'War President.'

You mean greedy mother.

You know dick about American pride. How about you enlist and show us some of yours? Too busy whining on blogs? I thought so. Run along, you pansy patriot.

Cindy Sheehan has sacrificed more than any of you people knocking her have for her country, and she has every right to ask questions. That's what America is about, not your stupid xenophobia and chest thumping.

I just came back from Iraq, junior, What have you done? She has every right to make herself look like a fucking ass. And I have every right to say she's making herself look like a fucking ass.

You lying whackjob. Youve never held a gun in your life. the worst youve done was jack off to war pictures, Shut the fik up chickenhawk coward.

In case you Freeper nut cases didn't get the memo, here's the First Amendment. Live it. Defend it.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

In case you can't read, lemme explain something.

Congress shall make no law - people telling Mrs. Sheehan that they're sick of her doesn't involved Congress or laws. People telling Mrs. Sheehan that she's an idiot who should just shut up are not passing any laws to violate Mrs. Sheehan's free speech.

So, explain how telling her to shut up violates her First Amendment right to free speech.

Sure, she has the right to say what she wants. We have the right to say that we disagree with her message and that we want her to go home and leave us alone.

Her 15 minutes are up.

Okay

Someone directed me to this site, said it needed a comment.

Now I know why

You, sorry but I HARDLY ever have the chance to do this anymore, seeing as I avoid you crazy types anymore...you sorry lot of fools thing some punishment should be leveled at a mother who lost her son in a war?

What in gods name are we fighting a war for then?? Freedom, free speech, she's supported by terrorists ARE YOU INSANE??

Nevermind. I already know you are.

Look, at this point, I ask the likes of you one and only one question. And it's a question I only ask you to ask yourselves, about everything Bush has done, the war in Iraq, Katrina response, and everything inbetween which you support with wild abandon the likes of which I could only describe in words you would NOT understand...ask yourselves just one simple question:

What if I'm wrong?

And know that there are literally millions of people all around you that believe you are wrong. We believe you are taking us to a very bad place, and I don't care anymore why, but I hope you realize that all the horrible things happening to so many other people will sound far, far different when they're happening to people you care about.

You might thing you don't care much about your neighbor. But you do. You don't care much about all us liberal types, you say, you are hateful, at this point. And I say, you won't like it when so many people, some you know and some you don't, wind up being hurt by the actions of this administration. You'll have only yourselves to blame, and at this point, few of the REST of us will have the courage to forgive you. Because we know, because we already asked ourselves

What if you're wrong

Oooooo, eeeeee, oooooo!

It is never ever treasonous to criticize the actions (or non-actions) of the government by the governed.
I insist on my personal right and my duty to care about and comment on how my country is led, and especially about what is done in my name.
Why else do we have the first amendment, our freedom of speech, especially in a country that prides itself in being a model for Democracy?

As a matter of fact, it is more treasonable NOT to speak up about incompetence and injustice if that is what we see in front of our faces.

Dad's neat. You're a bitch. Thanks for dishonoring our older brother. Maybe one day you can further embarrass us like you did him. At least he was dead and didn't have to life through your little temper tantrum. Lucky.

Go home DITCH BITCH! You're 15 minutes are up!

Seconded. Cindy, you're a loon. I hear you're headed back to Crawford... have fun you idiot.

Personally, I think the entire GOP needs to be tried for treason for bankrupting our country and making us less safe by pissing off every other country in the world.

But that's the culture of corruption that can only be associated with the Greedy Old Parasite party.

Bush violated the Congressional approval to invade Iraq:

"SEC. 3. AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES.
(a) AUTHORIZATION- The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines to be necessary and appropriate in order to--
(1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and
(2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq.
(b) PRESIDENTIAL DETERMINATION- In connection with the exercise of the authority granted in subsection (a) to use force the President shall, prior to such exercise or as soon thereafter as may be feasible, but no later than 48 hours after exercising such authority, make available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate his determination that--
(1) reliance by the United States on further diplomatic or other peaceful means alone either (A) will not adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq or (B) is not likely to lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq; and
(2) acting pursuant to this joint resolution is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorist and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001."

NONE OF THESE CONDITIONS WERE MET. Iraq was no threat to the US and Saddam was fully cooperating with inspections.

ILLEGAL WAR.

NONE OF THESE CONDITIONS WERE MET. Iraq was no threat to the US and Saddam was fully cooperating with inspections.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Ha ha ha ha ha ha.... 50 thousand comedians are starving and you are making jokes.

"(1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and"

Hussein operated 3 terrorist training camps in Iraq. Proven fact. What was he turning out there, girl scout cookies? He was also funding Palestinian suicide bombers, and other terrorists. And Patrick Fitzgerald (the Plame investigator) also named Hussein as in bed with Al Qaeda in 2 seperate indictments.
#1 Satisfied.

"(2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq."
Hussein was NOT in complaince with UN resolutions, as the U.N. is on record stating. What planet are YOU from?
#2 satisfied.

"NONE OF THESE CONDITIONS WERE MET. Iraq was no threat to the US and Saddam was fully cooperating with inspections."
Again, I have to ask what planet you are living on. Please go look up UN delarations. Hussein was NOT in compliance.

"ILLEGAL WAR."
Not because YOU say so. If it were illegal, why isn't anyone in congress impeaching the President? Just because you WANT it to be illegal, does not make it so.

"It's time for America to unite in her strengh and weed these people who promote division of the people by any means, which includes violence on Americas soil."

Go right ahead and call for murdering your fellow citizens because they disagree with you. Calling that American pride is sick.

I've named my baby "Paid For By Dummies."

COMMIE MOMMIE bought a COMMIE car.

Some people need to look up the meaning of "treason" and then take a good hard look at Cindy Sheehan and the real traitors, Bush/Cheney/Ashcroft/Powell/Rice/Libby/Rove/Gonzalez, etc.

People, get an EDUCATION. And studies show the more educated you are, the more liberal you become. So what does that tell you?

I think that if you get a LIBERAL education that the trend is toward LIBERALISM, Since most higher education is Staffed by liberals the tendency is to produce liberals. What do all this mean
NOTHING. Only proves "You can lead a horse to water and make him drink"

OMG!!! I must have missed something when I got my medical degree, 'cause I've been a conservative since the mid-eighties--before Rush, k?

It's gonna be a lot of fun when no indictments come down and all your DU heads explode. Please arrange for cleanup when it happens.

It's also gonna be fun when Cindyloon goes back to Crawford only to find out that there are major restrictions on the area around President Bush's ranch. BTW, did you all ever get the mess you left last time cleaned up? I thought you all treasured the environment.

One thing that really bothers me, moonbats: Cindyloon said after she left Camp Moonbat that she would camp out in front of the WH until President Bush came out to meet with her, yet she hasn't done so. I guess she LIED, huh. She should be Chimpeached.

Where did she get the money for the new wheels? I know she has no job except making a fool of herself. Doesn't it bother you that she may be a part of the culture of corruption?

And for a grieving mother, she sure doesn't look too sad. Actually, she looks like she's having the time of her life. I guess being adored by moonbats is more important to her than her other children and her sick mother. I think she should be nominated for Mother of the Year.

Many of us have been matriculated and we have no use for a recalcitrant person like the Ditch Bitch.

The same condeming words you use on Cindy are also the same as hers: Both are protected by the bill of rights.
So spew on my misguilded fools of the right, the more you scream and yell about Cindy Sheehan and how bad she is, the more you are supporting her freedom of speech. Knock yourselves out. The liberals of America thank you. :) Peace happens when war ends, not the other way around. Funny how that works.

Hey, Cindy-loo - have you figured out that the Pres isn't going to meet you for a second time yet? Remember when you said that ALL you wanted. You LIED. Your fifteen miuntes of pulicly pissing on your son's grave and service are over. Buh bye.

Please latch onto Cindy. Put her on a pedastel. Run her for President in 2008. It just shows how wacked out you all are. Does Cindy take a lot of drugs? Because she looks like her brain is fried in almost every picture, I've ever seen of her. Hillary is just a tool of the VRWC. ****Cindy 2008****

Hey, moonbats! Cindyloon said she was going to follow President Bush to the WH and camp out there after she left Camp Moonbat. I guess she LIED, huh. Chimpeach her!
