Taking the People's Demand to Capitol Hill


Starting Tuesday, a huge truck with this billboard on the side will begin driving around the U.S. Capitol.

On the other side of the truck will be this:

Velvet Revolution owns the truck, so there's no expense there, but signs cost a heck of a lot to produce. VR is looking for ideas for more signs and for the money to pay for them:

this sign could be painted with letter stencils, red black and white paint in 2 hours. use this http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/to create photos on a home printer the size of the truck and paste them with glue and a roller. 50 bucks max

Make it count.

I don't think you need any more ideas, those are fine, just get more trucks or try to find the money to put them up on real billboards, and find a good lawyer to sue the billboard company if they refuse to post it. Combine the donation page and this page... I'd like to give $ but I can't figure out where to give.

I love the passion of the idea, but I hope the truck doesn't make impeachment seem too "fringey", too radical an idea to actually happen. If impeachment seems to be coming from the far left as an idea, it will be almost untouchable by the middle.

I do think this kind of "direct activism" has a great deal of influence over the 500-1000 people who took us to a war based on lies/misinformation, ordered the wire taps, approved the torture.

People forget that the "public" never had a chance to vote on war with Iraq. They'll never get a chance to vote on impeachment. The people who need to be "moved to action" are congressmen and they will ONLY act with direct pressure from the public.

The message has to be clear and direct. They have to know exactly what the public wants.

Congressmen have to be shown that folks smart enough to earn a living, raise kids, pay mortgages, mail tax checks and speak in complete sentences know when they've been betrayed, deceived and abused by an administration who thinks FISA isn't really a law . . . it's just a silly suggestion from congress.

N.

What about starting this movement in every state...first capitals... then cities and trying to get local people to have trucks with the same sign driving the streets on a regular basis.

Taleban in Texas for talks on gas pipeline

The 1,300km pipeline will carry gas across Afghanistan's harsh terrain
A senior delegation from the Taleban movement in Afghanistan is in the United States for talks with an international energy company that wants to construct a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan across Afghanistan to Pakistan.

A spokesman for the company, Unocal, said the Taleban were expected to spend several days at the company's headquarters in Sugarland, Texas.

Unocal says it has agreements both with Turkmenistan to sell its gas and with Pakistan to buy it.

The Afghan economy has been devasted by 20 years of civil war
But, despite the civil war in Afghanistan, Unocal has been in competition with an Argentinian firm, Bridas, to actually construct the pipeline.

Last month, the Argentinian firm, Bridas, announced that it was close to signing a two-billion dollar deal to build the pipeline, which would carry gas 1,300 kilometres from Turkmenistan to Pakistan, across Afghanistan.

In May, Taleban-controlled radio in Kabul said a visiting delegation from an Argentinian company had announced that pipeline construction would start "soon".

Kabul
The radio has reported several visits to Kabul by Unocal and Bridas company officials over the past few months.

A BBC regional correspondent says the proposal to build a pipeline across Afghanistan is part of an international scramble to profit from developing the rich energy resources of the Caspian Sea.

With the various Afghan factions still at war, the project has looked from the outside distinctly unpromising.

Last month the Taleban Minister of Information and Culture, Amir Khan Muttaqi, said the Taleban had held talks with both American and Argentine-led consortia over transit rights but that no final agreement had yet been reached. He said an official team from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Turkmenistan should meet to ensure each country benefited from any deal.

However, Unocal clearly believes it is still in with a chance - to the extent that it has already begun training potential staff.

It has commissioned the University of Nebraska to teach Afghan men the technical skills needed for pipeline construction. Nearly 140 people were enrolled last month in Kandahar and Unocal also plans to hold training courses for women in administrative skills.

Women face working restrictions under Taleban rule
Although the Taleban authorities only allow women to work in the health sector, organisers of the training say they haven't so far raised any objections.

The BBC regional correspondent says the Afghan economy has been devastated by 20 years of civil war. A deal to go ahead with the pipeline project could give it a desperately-needed boost.

But peace must be established first -- and that for the moment still seems a distant prospect.

Please make these great signs into bumper stickers so we can carry the protest everywhere!

I love it! I sent an email with another idea, but I love what you've got so far.

EVICTION NOTICE: GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE AND TAKE KKKARL WITH YOU!

Where do I send my donation to support this sign?

RNC
Washington, DC.

Remember -- Keep those $$$ Coming.

I need to understand this: In the past, the President said that he obeyed the low and every eavesdropping or search of an American Citizen was according to FISA low. Recently, he said that FISA low is too old to follow.

Are citizen free not to follow old laws? What is 'old'? Is 1986 old? Are citizens free from following old lows (such as paying property tax, not killing etc? Where is the limit, and when is a low 'too old' to follow? And when the President said that he had been following FISA, had he forgotten that he signed it some 30 times?

Hello,

Absolutely fucking fantastic - you should supply art and files to people in other cities ( you got a van you can drive a billboard ) - MSM won't report truth so take it to the streets. Nice - So Simple - So Brilliant!!!

Idea - many news, morning etc shows now have what is called an open environment. Windows open onto street so you can see passer bys and traffic - Some even have parking directly in line of site. Circling a fox station ( or any MSM ) while broadcasting live or recording will guarantee a TV presence - and be hilarious.

What a beauteeeeeful sight.

I think this is great. However, I think you need to change your statement about 9/11. They orchestrated the events. You can't plan for a war in Afghanistan for October 2001 prior to 9/11 unless you're absolutely certain something like 9/11 will happen. The only way to be absolutely certain is to make it happen.

You are a complete idiot!

Can't improve on that sign...it says it all...How about bumper sticks, front lawn signs, signs for demonstrations, mugs, flyers for our congressman, postcards, t-shirts, caps and anything else I am forgetting...you forgot AWOL...there is no statute of limitations on that one...even though his records are lost... We have to have this everywhere for the republicans to understand this guy is ruining their party....and maybe they will do something...it has to be everywhere...

I know I'm probably going to be monitored for posting this, but I really don't give a crap! Those are the best signs EVER!! I will definitely donate to get more like them up. Get these pigs out of office ASAP!! Keep up the good work!

And reported.

Someone from the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy will contact you.

Resistance is FUTILE!

THATS EXACTLY WHAT WE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT YOU REPUBLICAN MORON. HITLER VREATED HIS SECRET SS TROOPERS TO SPAY AND KILL HIS FELLOW COUNTRYMEN ... YOU PROBABLY STILL WET THE BED GIRLY BOY ..COME TO SOUTHERN MISSOURI WE WILL SHOW YOU THAT RESISTANCE IS FUTILE

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

My god fix it!!! That Bright red makes you guys look like commies!!!
Redo it and do it in some american colors. Then get the guy out!!!

We WANT to look like Commies!

DUmmy!

Take a look at an American flag sometime. It's called the RED, white, and blue.

YEAH! Do it!

SUNG to the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town:

Oh! You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why:
MARTIAL LAW IS COMING TO TOWN !
Rove's making a list,
He's checking it twice,
He's gonna find out
who's naughty or nice.
MARTIAL LAW IS COMING TO TOWN !
Carl sees you when you're sleeping,
He knows when you're awake.
When he finds out you're liberal
HE'LL BURN YOU AT THE STAKE.
So...You better watch out, You better not cry stop playing dead, I'm telling you why.
MARTIAL LAW IS COMING TO TOWN !
Small little kids, who cuddle and coo,
Soon will be shipped to Abu Ghraib, too.
MARTIAL LAW IS COMING TO TOWN !
Little Tinhorns ,Delay and his chums,
Steal all the loot, While Rummy burns towns
MARTIAL LAW IS COMING TO TOWN !
The 'Cons who thrive on K street,
Will have a jubilee.They're gonna build a Reichstag, and tear down democracy !

So...You better SPEAK TRUTH, You better not cry , DONT PANDER TO BUSH I'm telling you why.
MARTIAL LAW IS COMING TO TOWN

The billboard would make a great bumper sticker.

Right On Citizens... Right On!!!

It's amusing, but these kind of take our money and spend it on a gimmick trick didn't work in the 2004 Elections. I contributed thousands in 2004 and was let down by candidates that didn't fight for every vote. I'm not wasting money of these sideshows.

Think about things logically and you'll see things as they really happened, as they really are.

1) It takes many years of training to be able to pilot a large commercial jet. A flight school would train a student on basic, simple flight priciples, start with a small trainer and steadily build upon those lessons. A flight school would not train a novice to just master the the in-flight skills. An FAA certified flight school would teach a step-by-step course. Flying commercial jets without learning first how to take-off or land makes no sense. Don't believe it that the terrorists who struck us on 9/11 were not professional, highly-trained pilots.

2) Two successful, pinpoint attacks on the World Trade Center would require the perfect combination of training and timing. Think about it, we are being told that semi-trained pilots were able to fly for about 40 minutes without communications and without prompting a response from NORAD. And these pilots were able to home in on two structures right next to each other in a very crowded city. Don't believe it that the terrorists who struck us on 9/11 were not professional and highly-trained pilots. The lack of a NORAD response only makes sense if you understand that these planes were allowed to fly undisturbed.

3) The Pentagon was hit at just the right angle. Some very good flying for semi-trained pilots. No, the pilots who flew the plane into the Pentagon were highly trained.

What makes sense is that the terrorists who flew the planes on 9/11/01 were probably Saudi Air Force fighter pilots who were just fanatical enough to go on these suicide missions. Why not? In World War II, the Japanese carried out a lot of suicide missions using planes.

You have to ask why our government would tell us something completely different. The government also stonewalled the 9/11 Commission and redacted 19 pages of the report that detailed Saudi involvement.

The government has been using 9/11 as an excuse to get away with all sorts of crimes against U.S. citizens and foreigners.

This is my logical conclusion about 9/11 and how it enabled Bush-Cheney to establish a dictatorship in the U.S.A. You probably never thought you'd be living here in the U.S. under a dictatorship.

But we have it now. A thoroughly weakened Congress, a stacked Supreme Court, warrentless domestic spying, torture, suspension of habeous corpus, concentration camps, the non-response to Katrina (read sometime about the Irish Potato Famine and you'll see how the British used that opportunity to punish the hated Irish. The Katrina response is a similar tactic to what the British used), propaganda, rigged elections, the confiscation of wealth through regressive tax policy, unprovoked war, outing of a CIA agent, suppression of the press, scandals, etc. etc. etc.

The most sobering truth has yet to play out. You'll see, Bush-Cheney will not leave the White House in 2008.

I love this idea. Any way we can get the "I" word out there helps.

It appears you are doing something worth doing out in D.C. with these signs. I couldn't agree more.

Mark in Mpls.

THANK YOU! This is EXACTLY what we need! We need a Tsunami of a wake up call to de-brainwash the masses. No more niceities. No more peace talk. No more hand-holding. Bush lies, spies and lets children die- ENOUGH ALREADY! The only way to save our Constitutional rights is the way we got them to begin with- with a revolution. THANK YOU!

impeach Bush and his criminal gang!

With nearly half the American electorate who believe President Bush actually is a great leader, talk of impeachment is futile. We live in a culture of lies. Just yesterday Katie Couric said this to Howard Dean: "Hey, wait a second. Democrats took--Democrats took money from Abramoff too, Mr. Dean."

That's the Republican lie of the moment, among a zillion others, and Bush followed up with even more bumbling lies during his hastily called press conference.

Impeach him? Get serious.

I don't have a billboard truck, or even a motor vehicle; but I'm still doing the best I can:

great idea! anything to get him out of office. Voting them out is not an option, because of the rigged Emachines.

Far Out.. I just downloaded it and will make a mini poster and drop it off everywhere; churches, postoffices, supermarket shopping baskets, fast food tables, gee I love to spread truth and knowledge, our Country is in dire need of it right now. Peace thru knowledge is the only answer.....

For so long I have dreamed of the Republicans losing control of both houses of the congress in 2006, followed by the impeachment of George W. Bush.

Then I think about who would then become president and I realize that, surprising as it might be, it could be worse. So I set aside the dream again for a while.

I guess I'm one of the naive ones who thought Bush and Cheny should have been impeached three yeas ago for war crimes and criminal endangerment of our military. Now we have torture, secret prisons, and the loss of 1000 lives in New Orleans due to the failure of sending in the military immediately. The domestic spying seems mild compared to death and destruction. Hey, but what do I know? I'm supposed to just go shopping and let them handle everything!!!!!!

The problem with New Orleans was not that the military did not immediately go in. FEMA's disaster response capacity was gutted and not replaced on the local, state, or federal level. They -want- you to think that the military should respond immediately to a national disaster, because that makes martial law that much easier.

Simple 3 panel of Bush head- same photo.

panel 1- facing left: caption = whatever he said about catching bin Laden after 9/11--dead or alive, smoke him out, etc.

panel 2-facing right: caption = "I don't really care where he is" quote

panel 3- facing left again: caption = "we should take bin Laden's warning seriously" quote

DERELICTION OF DUTY AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. IMPEACH NOW.

keep your eye on the prize!
http://patrickjfitzgerald.blogspot.com

To quote the man on the sign, "BRING IT ON" and I am certain all of "US" dems will be looking forward to BRINGING IT ON. As they use to say in the old "CROTCH" (US MARINE CORPS of yesteryear) - LOCK AND LOAD!!!

Bravo on your Patriotism!

But thinking ahead, please give the crews driving the truck a camcorder since one can anticipate the D.C. elements harassing illegally once again.

"Let all the poison that is in the mud hatch out."

.

There's already a grassroots push to sign the Capital Region with impeachment messages. Check out www.freewayblogger.com for some awesome photos. And their daily blog at freewayblogger.blogspot.com.

It's time for true patriots to stand up against King George... again.

And with the same results as the last time.

And the time before that......

And the time before that.....

And the time before that......

You guys are so funny!!
