You are herecontent / San Francisco Bay Guardian Endorses Sheehan Over Pelosi

What's the matter? Are the people in San Francisco brain-dead? Why would they vote for a politician who thumbs her nose at their calls for accountability, sells them down the river while bailing out the thieves, and finances a war that they want ended? Please!
Cindy Sheehan is the most logical choice for anything person in her district. You have no idea how many of us wish we had a choice like her in our district.
I think it was because I mentioned that I would send Cindy money. The DU did not appreciate my pandering when I should be sending them money or maybe it was because I mentioned that Palestenians were Semetic. Cindy Sheehan is my choice except, she is not on my ballot.
I have written the site off as pro-Zionist, siteowner cannot possibly be for peace if they ban Cindy too!
We should get a room (Resonator's idea) ;-D
IMPEACH BUSHCO & RICO PNAC/AIPAC...PNAC is Bush/Cheney's "Helter Skelter" !
NO SPOILERS , PERIOD > WE MUST DEFEAT MCCAIN!!!
Apparently everyone and their grandmothers are getting kicked off DU (right AND left) , except Iraq warmongers , zealous Zionists, Israelfirsters. Skinner has completely lost his way , we may as well blow his popsicle stand for good!

All truth passes through three stages . . .
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
German philosopher (1788 - 1860)
We're entering stage two:
A year ago I joined the forum Liberal Underground.
I don't dwell on the Israeli/Palestinian issue because it's not something that dominates my priorities - the Iraq war and labor are my pet issues (I protested in DC '05) - but I saw a group of pro-Zionist campaigners with an obvious agenda in the forum, squatting like basilisks with tongues at the ready, really distorting the facts whenever Israel came up, and since there was no dissenting opinions rising to the challenge I took them on.
I was very soon labeled an anti-Semite and banned. All I did was state the facts. This was an education for me.
About a month ago I joined the forum Democratic Underground and in the Israeli/Palestinian forum I found the same thing going on, a sort of propaganda campaign to put Israel in the best light and the Palestinians in mud, so I politely and firmly contradicted the nonsense with backed-up facts.
Here again I was called an anti-Semite and banned. I realized that I'd been baited into violating some very strict and narrow rules applying to that forum.
A violation of these rules will get you banned:
1. NO links to Whatreallyhappened or any sites on an Internet hate site list that's 149 pages long.
2. NO posting that AIPAC (or other Jewish orgs) exercises undue influence in Congress or on our foreign policy.
3. NO saying that the attack on the USS Liberty was deliberate.
4. NO calling someone a "blind supporter" of Israel, a conservative, or an Israeli-apologist.
I posted an article by Charlie Reese, one of my favorite columnists who's critical of Israel's policies and the Iraq war, by way of LewRockwell.com, and the post was deleted with the warning that LewRockwell was a bigoted site and Reese a rightwing conservative, both unsupportable claims IMO.
Reese has some conservative views, but in many ways he's on the left and progressive. Labels don't work with him.
The restrictions I listed are accurate and spelled-out in the forum rules, and are also based on comments made by the forum moderator (Lithos).
I don't see how any meaningful, useful debate can take place under these restrictions, and what's too bad is that DU is one of the largest and most active boards on the net. Oh well.
Then I discovered a site called Prosemiteundercover.
It's made up of banned and active members of both Liberal Underground and DU, along with Israelis, and their gig is to read, post and archive every anti-Zionist, Israel-critical post on sites like DU, then go on an e-mail campaign to alert and complain to the mods and demand the posts be deleted and the poster banned.
They participate under different usernames and bait the posters that are critical of Israel, hoping to goad them into a hot response that'll get them banned.
This kind of covert intellectual Jihadism can definitely contribute to mistrust and resentment of pro-Israel Jews in general. But your take is correct IMO, the majority of Jews are reasonable and straightforward, you just have this fanatical and mendacious minority that suffer from cognitive dissonance and anger issues who exercise a disproportionate influence on public discourse and effectively poison the atmosphere.
While anti-Israel criticism on Liberal U. is non-existent in the face of the Israel-firster squatters, on DU in the Israeli/Palestinian forum there is critcism, but it's restricted to following a narrow and channelized corridor.
And the inability to bring up a range of subjects, facts and events that are inter-related to honest criticism of Israel hog-ties open discussion. Some stridently pro-Israel posters at DU have had their posts deleted and been banned for straying outside the strict rules themselves, many of them landing at Prosemite Underground.
This might be merely an attempt by the mod there (Lithos) and the Skinner to maintain the appearance of neutrality, but the fact remains that the majority of banned posters and deleted comments are from those critical of Israel, and the Prosemite Underground (and doubtless other) e-mails and alerts are still read and obviously acted upon by the mod and admin.
All this will backfire on those little nazis - a storm is brewing and when it hits, things are going to get ugly."
I thought sure you would want to ban Cindy Sheehan from the race to unseat Pleosi! She has the same values as Dennis Kucninich and Ralph Nader, but that's not important. After all, Ralph and Cindy are just spoilers and losers! Cindy has never won and election in her life, so she must be a looser just like Dennis, since she is running against a very powerful opponent. Logically, she is likely to loose, so she must be just a spoiler!
DAAAAHHHH.. "NO SPOILERS,PERIOD" - we must get rid of Cindy. She is "spoiling it" for Nancy!
We are SOOOoooo screwed!
Assuming, of course, that there will be no nationwide Election Day epiphany that sees voters reject both McCain and Obama (sadly, a pretty safe bet), which means politics as usual at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue regardless of which of these corporate tools gets to call the White House home for the next four years.
But a Sheehan victory in San Francisco would shake the elitist Washington establishment to its hollow core, signaling the beginning of the end of politics as usual.
Here's to hoping the people of San Francisco realize two very important points:
First - They have an awesome opportunity (some would say responsibility) to put not just their district but their country back on the path to government of, by and for the people.
Second - They need to ignore backhanded, defeatist endorsements like the one from the San Francisco Bay Guardian (which picks Cindy for all the right reasons, then essentially tosses her aside by calling her a long shot) and do what we all inherently understand is the right thing to do. Well intentioned as it may be, the Guardian's "endorsement" only gives currently undecided voters (who WILL decide the election) an excuse to fall back on the unacceptable stauts quo.
We're counting on you, San Francisco. Help us turn the tide.

SIGN the Online Petition to depose The House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at http://www.petitiononline.com/everyman/ for crimes against the Constitution and "working behind the scenes with House Democrats, not to build a consensus for impeachment, but to do just the opposite!! To keep others from succeeding in their effort to hold this president accountable by means of impeachment!!"
CONTACT your Representative to introduce a Resolution citing "a question of privilege" and "declaring the office of speaker vacant".
I have great respect for you, but I have to tell you that as intelligent as you are--having gone to one of America's top schools--you are an idiot to sit on your hands and not take care of bush by having the criminal impeached. I have not met a person of sound mind who disagrees. Your best allies are Robert Wexler and Dennis Kucinich. Don't you realize that george bush will keep committing these crimes unless you give the go-head to democratic leadership to allow impeachment. By not doing this you are allowing your own defeat and it makes you look out of touch--as smart as you supposed to be. This guy has commited agregious crimes and your democratic buddies are standing around saying "what crimes". Is over 1,000,000 people enough reason. It should be more than enough. If you want win this election you better wisen up, and wake up. Even if you win, it doesn't mean that bush and his criminal buddies will actually let you win. I worry because every thing hangs on this. He won't hesitate to assinate you, or paint you as a terrorist. It is happening now. You never mention 911. I know that you know what really happened that day. And it wasn't all about foreign terrorists. It was about letting Big Business get away with ripping off California with the enery debacle, Worldcom, Enron, and the bush family's business Dresser Industries, who supplied asbestos to the World Trade Center. It was about starting the new world order, and bankrupting this country[project for a new american century---the wolfowitz doctrine. I really hope that you aren't a traitor like, bush, some members of his party, his Big Business buddies, and certain members of your party--do you notice how I don't CAPITALIZE his name. It is because he is not worthy of it. You have been holding out on letting impeachment happen. That is a drastic mistake. You are out of touch, or stupid to think that more that 80% of this country isn't enough reason to allow impeachment and let it propel you into the White House. By not impeaching him every day you are looking complicit with him. Your lip service doesn't add up when you don't stand up for JUSTICE that is not happening right in front of your educated eyes. You CONSTITUTIONAL lawyership doesn't matter,when you let the CONSTITUTION get shredded in front of you eyes. You claim of PATRIOTISM doesn't matter so much when you are letting a man kill our real patriots in a wars that you can stop by impeaching bush & cheney. What are you waiting for our whole country to die, before you grow a conscience!! I beleive that the democratic party was lied to about the reasons for war and therefore, were tricked into supporting it and paying for it out of our dwinding money. But it is time RIGHT NOW to realize that your fellow senators and congressmen don't have to worry about prosecution, due to the fact that you were tricked. So again I ask what the hell are you waiting for. As you can see approving for the $850 Billion, did very little beside make millionaires billionares. They want to break this economy and then commit more white collar theft by buying the smaller companies for pennies on the dollar. I know your educated mind can figure this one out. It's very simple--get the rich richer, and make everyone else go to poverty. Project for a New American Century, The Amero currency=Bankrupt America. This was all well planned out. The question is do you want to play this ignorant attempt to ignore the founding fathers so you can hopefully win an election with all the REAL possibilities of failing due to Electronic Voting FRAUD, disenfranchised voters being not allowed to vote for ridiculous reasons, being painted as terrorist, continuing to fund the war that you say you never wanted, bailing out the richest in America and being looked at as stupid for that, or do as the WISE FOUNDING FATHERS ORDERED YOU TO DO AS A PROTECTOR OF THE CONSTITUTION?? This shit makes me want to vote for Cynthia McKinney, and I wanted to vote for you. She seems to know what's up.
