AH! The power of Positive Thinking!
To quote Carmen Escala, Ph.D.: Thoughts are energy. The more you think a thought, the more you feed it. The more you feed it, the more it grows. Let's grow it!

I have seen the outpouring of approximately 60 tons of donations in 30 tractor trailors from my very small northern state collected in less than 36 hours to be sent to our southern neighbors hit by Katrina... I have seen the prayers of my family, friends, congregation, and others prove to make a difference and (hopefully will help those in need in the south)... I have seen the prices at the gas pumps in less than five hours increase three times since the coming of Katrina -- price gouging? I think so!!!... And I have seen the horror on the faces of families left without any comfort or BOTTLED WATER even flown in and dropped to them by any means possible for FOUR DAYS!!! when it was certainly possible because the news choppers were able to get to them to take pictures...
Now. When we have greed and corruption from two stolen elections, an administration with a GRE score of 444 and their hands in the "cookie jar", I do not place any fault on our neighboring countries or other members of the UN, to whom we are related by treaty, to wonder at our incredible and abject disintrest (as an American population as a whole) in ousting Bush, Jr. If Jeb is elected? We're sunk and should get our just deserts.
Last but not least -- Caring for the environment? Who would put a game headhunter in charge of the fish and game department? -- sorry, I just had to get that one in... Do we trust someone like that to help in ANWR?

Why do not Congressmen and women ask George W. Bush to resign. Millions of lives will be saved with him out of the White House, and there will a lessening of the increase in numbers of the poor here and abroad It is too much to comprehend: Americans worshiping at the shrine of this unthinking, unfeeling, crook, now occupying what used to be the most coveted position in the world. He has made a mockery of it. RESIGN OR BE IMPEACHED--take your pick Mr. President.

It is a nightmare. Check the records and you will see how much his actions compare to those of Adolph Hitler and his Henchmen.
George W. Bush (Mr. IQ 92) said early in his first term that he would like to be a Dictator. He is a joke, but a joke that is not funny.
He is destroying our once beautiful country. He is destroying the world.

The important reason not to impeach the president is that will leave Dick Cheney in charge. He's even worse than Bush.

Dickie Cheney, a.k.a F-you Cheney ,is a really great "VICE" War president and a true Halliburton War Hero. He is scheduled to receive much revered ,Rush Limpbag "Golden Anal Cyst Award" at the next White House Fund Dinner & Sex Orgy. Mary Carey, noted GOP porn queen will do him , uhh, do him the "honors" and Ace Talon White House reporter, Jeffy Gannon,is scheduled to jump nude out of the cake. Annie Coulter , noted NEOCON virgin will play the lead role in the Juarez style "Dog & Pony Show" and Tucker Carlson will lapp dance Karlie Rove, the official White House Pimp-Madam. Please RSVP for your dinner tickets . All monies will go the Halliburton Widows Fund which is overseen by F-You Cheney & Scooter Libby; very truly yours, Jeffy Gannon, Ace Reporter & White House Stud-Whore

WASHINGTON TIMES NEWS ALERT: Our intrepid White House reporter has just "Outed" Bad Bob Novak. Jeffy Gannon stated that" Bad Bobby Novak is really my "Toy Boy". This story has been "leaked"to Karl "The Maggot" Rove & F-Y "Scooter" Libby, the two anonymous White House "sources" and Pimp-Madams. Jeffy further states "We must all see this through"" SunFatMoon@WashingtonTimesFAUX-NEWSdesk

p.s. I do! marycarey@GOPpornqueen.com

That is a great idea and I love your descriptive synopsis on how it should go down. I find it absolutely amazing that no one has taken these guys out (of office) yet. I believe you would agree that America is hardly recognizable today, and getting worse every day. Civil Liberties? Freedom of Speech? Where did they go?

Have ya'll (yes, I am from Texas but don't tell anyone) noticed that the only people baby shrub will speak in front of is our military who are ordered to listen and appear interested? And, has anyone seen Cheney lately. Or Rummy? Are they hiding?

NOT TRUE!!! Go to Impeachbush.org the entire administration is listed for impeachment - which is where they should be - then to the world courts in the Hague for crimes against humanity.

I could not agree with you more! I am German living in the US and all this rhetoric coming out of Washington is very similar to what the Nazis used. This country deserves better.

Please co-sponsor HR 375.

Left a message with an aide for Pete King in NY, urging him to co-sponsor and asking "why" if he won't.

Impeach Bush. When he started the war in Iraq he knew oil would be affected. He could have put the speed limit across the country to 55 miles per hour to save gasoline, but then Halliburton and all the other greedy oil men and women would not reap the profit they are reaping today. He also wanted us to have an oil shortage so he could rape Alaska.He is without a doubt the worst President we have ever had. The war was utterly the worst thing any president has ever done.
GET HIM OUT OF OFFICE NOW - WITH ALL THE OTHER NO ACCOUNTS IN HIS ADMINISTRATION. I SHOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE ASHAMED TO BE PART OF HIS IDIOT IDEALOGY.

to a war crimes tribunal. Current american politicians have no stomach for another impeachment. We'll have to wait for the world community to come and take George, Dick, Karl, Myers, Libby, Rumsfeld, et.al away and give them what they deserve.

I know, I know, but a man can wish can't he?

Many years ago I read, "The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire" and "The Dumbing Down of America". I have lived long enough to see both become reality. I now know that you can fool most of the people of this country all of the time. The shrub from Texas is doing just that with his bible banging retoric. God forbid anyone would or could THINK for themselves.

We are rapidly becoming a 4th world country in the sciences and compassion for our elderly and children. "I know"; your can always have another child to replace the one that is lost to disease or work in the sweatshops. The elderly; they are just a drain on our rescources so they should be left in the brush for preditors. That takes care of those two problems.

The shrub and company need more money from oil so the rest of us can choke on smog and drink fouled water. While we are at it, why don't we cut down every tree on the planet. Then we don't have to worry about trying to save anything for our decendants.

When the people of California are willing to elect the Schwartzanazi because he is a tough guy in the movies..... Well maybe it is time to move to New Zealand or Australia. A Mars colony is looking better all the time. ;->

I have come to believe that organized religion is the most evil concept to every be conceived by men. More people have died in the name of GOD than any other reason. Think about it!!!!

I have,for many years, felt anguised by the level anti-intellectualism in this country. We could not possibly use the advances, the enhancors of life, that are presented to us if we were a stupid people. Organized religion is the opiate being used to dumb down the masses. Our society is not one of analytical thought but rather stimulus response. This is how we end up with an illegal presidency that creates an illegal war and the masses rally to defend this presidency and their unethical behavior. The masses are not using their ability to analyze the truth. The masses listen to the ministers of death as they spew their message of hate and intolerance and then go forth to "kill in the name of the Lord". How sad these truths are. How sad that the mass programming of America has been so easy to achieve. The formula for this control of the masses is well understood by the power brokers. The liberation of the masses, their deliverance to analytical intelligent self determination, can only be achieved through this same formula of mind control.

I totally agree with the above statements. America has become totally ignorant and blind to everything Bush and his croannies are doing. What has happened to the people of this once great country? This thing and his men have slowly stripped away our freedoms that this country was based on by our forefathers.

We no longer have the freedom of speech, expression, and with Bush and Jimmy Swaggart, we will soon lose our freedom to believe how we choose. Yes, organized religion I believe, has become the worst evil in America. I equate them with the MOB. These so-called "christians" preach MORE HATE and INTOLORANCE than anything else. That's NOT what Jesus meant when he said,"Love your enemy."

Also, Bush and his religious counterparts talk about the sin of abortion, well what the hell is Bush doing to our soldiers in Iraq? He is systematically KILLING our sons, daughters, husbands, and family members for OIL, then trying to cover it up with the terror threats he is so good at pulling out of his ass!!! Bush is AMERICA'S WORST SERIAL KILLER in the history of this country. He and all his buddies should be tried for mass murder and put away in prison where they belong!!!

"America has become totally ignorant and blind to everything Bush and his cronies are doing."

Blame the corporate media. Their propaganda keeps the average citizen confused about who the real enemy is. It's the few families that are more than merely rich; they're wealthy, and they're using that wealth to degrade our quality of life for their profits.

The wealthy also own the corporate media outlets, and use them to help those in power, who are also funded by the wealthy.

When W was first invading Iraq, it was found that Fox News viewers were the most likely to believe obvious Bush Administration lies, such as "the Iraqis were responsible for 9-11". National Public Radio (NPR) listeners were found to be the most informed, with the lowest percentage of their audience believing the lies.

Now the right wing has taken over NPR. Recently on NPR I heard some frantic spinning to get the radio audience to believe that "intelligence failures" were responsible for the Iraq invasion. NPR is now a propaganda outlet for the right wing, just like Fox.

For an antidote to the corporate media, read commondreams.org -- the best source of progressive news on the Web.

Thank God for people that are on this website. Been on others, but wow, the intelligence. So relaxed, despite my looming horror for the United States.
I am a citizen of the United States.. I have however, recently moved to France.. as I said I would, when I knew that Bush would take the election.. no matter what.
Just like Kennedy... We would not get out alive.
Kerry had NO chance. A Leader.. the best we had choice of... taken away and replaced by a monkey with not even the sense of a stick.
The tragedy, the deception... appauling.
I had to get out...
Not to escape.. well, maybe, but also... to breath.
I couldn't sleep under the blanket of deception any longer.
I wish my internal system were stronger, that I could have fought harder against it there, but will do so from here, just as easily.
This is sickening, espcially now, amidst the tragedy of what is taking place in Louisana. OMG.,, it makes me physically ill.
There is no leadership... never has been.
Just businessmen.. In it for themselves... and only like minded indivuals. anyone who speaks out.... disappeared.. as it were.
the american public... like anyone... Needs leadership. And in the face of absentee leadership... will follow anyone we give them... incuding a monkey on a stick. only a monkey, doesnt' kill and maime, and steal, and pillege... man does.
we have the sense, the heart, the money, the mind power, and the spirit to stop them. We must.. we must come together.. Write letters,,, stand at the top of buildings and scream at the top of our lungs until something is done.
The consitution of america says to do so.
God Bless,
melissa

We know Cheney is one of the contributors to the fight for oil. The BRITISH were given permission to purchase our oil companies (under "Beyond Petroleum".) They can drill in the Arctic Preserves and Prudhoe. I was one of the group which took oil companies to Prudhoe BAY IN 1955. TAXPAYER MONEY PAID FOR THAT TRIP UNDER THE GUISE OF FIXING THE Dewline -AT Point Barrow, Alaska. It was'nt broken. We were there while Seabees and other personnel (Frogmen,etc) were doing the ice breaking for the ships which went around to Prudhoe Bay for investigation of sites. Admiral Towner was the leading officer of the group. THE USS Eldorado was the command ship.

Yesterday, I spent some very uncomfortable time with some of my husbands friends. They are educated, intelligent successful professionals who believe that the US should simply take what it wants[oil or whatever] and kill anyone that stands in the way. In this way, they are very much like our president. That is the policy of the neocons, take what you please, and kill anyone who tries to stop you. This man even laughed at the horror in Iraq yesterday in which many Iraqi women and children either drowned or were trqamples to death when rumors of a suicide bomber were circulated in a crowd during a religious ceremony. This man even suggested that this is a way to "kill all of them off, and we will just take what we want"And this person is a respiratory therapist, and his compliant and all agreeing wife is a registered nurse.{nice to know all that compassion might be taking care of you the next time you go to the hospital?}

I understand what you're saying & I just cannot believe where these people operate from, certainly not their hearts. Where's the compassion???

Many people are educated scared Bush followers & think that their hero will save them in the end, so they need to support him & be just like him. He will NOT save them. Take a look at what's going on along the Coast with hurricane Katrina.

Try not to pay any attention to these people, because they really do have their eyes "wide shut". I can't imagine how these people function during the day & sleep at night.

But then my favorite saying is "what goes around, comes around".

Take care,

Sylvia :)

PS: People will eventually wake up to the fact that this is a greedy, arrogant Administration that doesn't care about the American people.

All I can say, is "are they insane?" Better not to have these people near you or, like you say, imagine yourself in their medical care? These kinds of friends are not friends, they are sick people that need help.

I fear that a large portion of our society, seems to have bought into the propaganda that says: " YOU HAVE TO HAVE......fill in the blanks.....because YOU WILL NOT FIT IN, YOU WILL NOT LOOK SUCCESSFUL, YOU WILL NOT BE TOP BANANA". Forget about the fact that they might be trying to get these THINGS and putting themselves into permanent debt, they might be taking drugs to calm fears and stresses as a result of buying things, houses and cars that they cannot afford BECAUSE they will FIT IN, LOOK SUCCESSFUL etc. Many have developed a ME ME ME attitude that does frighten me to death when I hear what are supposed to be citizens of a CHRISTIAN country, saying it is okay to take another countries security, kill it's citizens, steal resources and destroy it'senvironment while allowing many of our finest and youngest future citizens to be killed in the process without blinking an eye.

the German peoples>>> Goebbels was his secret weapon.

Rove is Bush's. Obviously these two vile men were and are masters of group psychology.

Life itself is essentially appropriation, injury, conquest of the strange and weak, suppression, severity, obtrusion of peculiar forms, incorporation, and at the least, putting it mildest, exploitation
- Nietzche

Wrong. Life is what we make of it. In 20th century America, our society was set up to protect the weak, and respect diversity.

The neocons are trying to change that. They have already changed a lot. We must resist them. There are more of us than them. All that is required for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.

U REALLY DON'T REMEMBER HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY KILLED WHEN THEY (IRAQS) WOULD HIJACK OUR PLANES AND BOMB OUR PEOPLE. THERE WERE MANY YEARS THAT WE TOOK THERE ABUSE! NOW IT IS BLAMED ON PRESIDENT BUSH! WHAT A CROCK!
HE DID THE RIGHT THING AND IF I WAS ABLE TO GO OVER THERE I WOULD! TO GIVE WHAT I COULD OF MYSELF. TO GIVE SUPPORT TO OUR SOLDIERS WHICH THEY NEED!! NOT ALL THIS NEGATIVE BULLSHIT!

READ THE NEWS STUPID. THE IRAQ DID NOT FLY THE PLANES , IT WAS THE SAUDI'S. SO WHY DON'T YOU GO ? , THEY'LL TAKE ANYBODY , EVEN IDIOTS LIKE YOU.

loll.
you are hysterical.
i hadn't read this, as i was too busy trying to be calm while posting my reply to the above individual, but then after reading these.. well was just gubiliant! is that a word.? anyhow, happy as hell.
not cause of what you said, necessarily, although lol. omg, but cause of like minded individuals... It often feels as if I've lost my mind, I can't believe this has really been let to continue.
I actually finally got fed up completely, and moved from the country. truly. moved to France. Do my bitching and trying to contact Representatives from here, to get this bastard and his cronies out of office now.
i fucking hate him.
anyhow.
God bless! lol.

Are you French?
I felt like leaving after the 2004 election.

We need the whole world to help us out with this Bush bunch. The largest organized crime syndicate this country has ever seen. Moron Americans like the poster (Wendee) are still standing in the way with their heads up their asses, obstructing justice.

Loved your comment!

I have lots of friends who feel the same way!

I hadn't thought of the OCS point of view before. HOW TRUE!

After reading this, all I could think was it's hard to beleive that someones (BRAIN) & thoughts can be so messed up! And to anyone that might agree with this redicilious statement PLEASE do yourself and others a big favor. CHECK THE FACT'S! Which is something you should do before commiting your self to killing people, or condemming a nations people to death. If you morons ever did bother to check the fact's, you would find that there was not one IRAQI involved in the 9-11 attacks, and that there is absolutley NO LINK between IRAQ and Alqeida, or any terrorist group, (WHICH IS OLD NEWS) In fact 9 of 15 of the terrorists involved in 9-11 were from SAUDI ARABIA.
In closing; It's time for all you gullable morons to check the fact's, AND TO THINK FOR YOURSELF, and to stop believing all the lies this bunch of thievs scumbag murderers(LIKE BUSH)that are currently in the whitehouse are throwing our way!

I understand you feel this way.. but please forgive me, as I really mean no insult, we all have the right to feel as we do...
The politics of war.. is the leading, only main goal of government. The research is available, as I like to read, research, all information before forming an opinion, it keeps me safe from not thinking for myself, and when i did... I was truly horrified. As I interview people, as I am a writer, I was able to find more and more stories of injustice.
Governments years ago, Reagon, cutting funding to the mentally ill and throwing into his own personal politics, and giving money and sleeping with Saddam in a busines of selling weapons, and giving leadership and training by the US to Bin Laden.
Their children.. picture your own.. a foreign governement comes slapping US in the face, telling US on our own land how to live.. Not because we physically did, but because we sent them the weapons, to kill their enemies. And the tali ban forms in hatred of seeing Product of The USA on their bombs lying in their streets that have killed their children. We can't even imagine... I pray never will.
9/11 while of course tragic, is the closest we've ever come to seeing true devastation.
They live with it,.... every day... and at the hands of us.
It is not about politics.. It shouldn't be... We make it this way.
We set the stage for what they did. Bin Laden is brilliant. Mad. yes. but brilliant. Never make a brilliant man angry, you end up with Hitler.
It was tragic, but again.. Iraq had nothing to do with it.
Just because Japan dropped a bomb attacking Pearl Harbor... were we not partly to blame??????
These are just people. People that when you walk in their shoes, you may or may not find, that you would react the same. I know, in many cases, I at least know people who would act in vengeance, of a country that as we see now... The men that run it, are hell bent on greed, not our good.
The facts show, if you want to read them... Facts, That this administration is in serious error in judgement, in crimes against humanity.. for years every one has cut funding to poor areas, Bush did the worst... and then when tradedy struck, we couldn't help these poor people, because our leadership truly had its head up it's ass.
Can you even imagine a general in time of war acting this way?

Well.God bless you either way, may you find peace with the Lord.

Please stick to the facts. Iraq never did that. You can't blame innocent Iraqis for the actions of others. Meanwhile, Bush never did bring Osama bin Laden to justice. It's almost four years since 9/11/01 - what's the hold up?

You're a fucking idiot.

I **SUPPORT** our TROOPS. Thank you for your honesty. I will give you mine.

What I do not support is an Adminisitration that lies, bleeds its people who can least afford it, and kill its soldiers, sailors, and airmen and women for a cause that, while just, is ill-advised, ill-conceived, NOT WORKING, and false in that it is filled with twists, turns, and misdirections.

The terrorists have won. Their job was to make us look over our backs and lose our civil liberties. They succeeded. Have you heard of the Patriot Act? We will NEVER get our civil liberties back. We will NEVER have the chance to breath without having to remember a time when the Bill of Rights and the Constitution actually meant something other than just being pieces of paper with writing on them. We did not have to have the Patriot Act.

We did not have to go into Iraq. We did not have to make enemies of the general Islamic World. It was FANATICS, not the Islamic religion, and not the Iraqi people who bombed us. It was an Arabian (Bin Laden and his underlings), associated with the BUSH Administration!!! who pulled off the hijackings and deaths involved with 9/11. "We" went into Iraq for the Almighty Dollar. For the Holy Oil. For $$$. And for it, for the freedom of a nation that was conceived by the British colonials and was unstable prior to Sadam Hussein taking power and becoming its dictator, is now even more unstable and playing host to fanatics working to kill more of our Troops.

And now Bush has recently said we will be involved in the Region until at least 2009. Imagine how many of our men and women will be killed by then. Imagine how many of our Service Men and Women and National Guard troops will not be at home to protect our "homeland", to reach the needy of another Hurricane Katrina, to be with their families for celebrations and simple things like waking up next to a husband or wife, kissing them goodbye as they go out the door to work, for birthday parties, anniversaries, business lunches. To see their sons and daughters grow up in a free America. To date, to marry, to watch tv or write a comment on a website like this without having to worry about the Patriot Act's police coming to knock on his/her door.

And you think that this Administration really thinks about all of that? Can you honestly think that he thinks about it at this level? Can you believe that he would send his son or daughter into harms way? That if his daughters were young men, that he would even THINK about war? About sending ANYONE to war? THEN he sure would.

Again, I support our troops. But NOT Bush. Plant Bush back in Crawford where he belongs.

notice how the idiot that replied first was not even able to make his case because he knows he has no real case. So he thinks he is doing good by being a fool. But his kind of idiot just brings more people to the side of right and justice.

you are a fool.. Bush one started bombing Iraq in his Iraq war one.
Bush 2 dummer that an idiot thought he coule finish the slaughter and steal the resorses of Iraq as well as make israel the most powerfull nation on earth. they already are the 5 th. most powerfull nucular WMD nation in the world. As a war time VET I resent my tax dollars paying for injustice and murder.

Your comment shows your ignorance. When exactly did Iraq or Iraqis bomb us or fly planes into our buildings? NEVER!!!!

Those who did were citizens of Saudi Arabia, members of Al Quada, and trained in Afganistan. There were no members of Al Quada in Iraq before we found it profitable to invade that country, but there are plenty of them there now.

Yeah idiot, the fight on terrorism is really going great. We are helping Al Quada to spread all over the world and to gain new members every day because of the action taken by this president and people who think like you do. By the way, big talk. The military is looking for people like you. I'm sure some young kid in Iraq will gladly change places with you.

Excuse me, but IRAQ did not hijack planes and fly into the WTC, Saudi and some others did.

Perhpas you should start reading and investigating facts instead of hiding behind the lies this administration continues to feed people.

The hijackers were SAUDIS!! They had nothing to do with Iraq. Can you Bush supporters name ONE action that Bush has taken against Saudi Arabia? Of course not. Bush is much too cozy with the Saudis. Educate yourself!

Statesman with guts - for a change

How much innocent blood has been shed as a result of this vile and corrupt administration. They should ALL be removed from office and TRIED FOR TREASON !

I'm sick of talking about all the mistakes this president-"select"-by-the-now-extreme-right-wing-Supreme Court has made. We now need to seriously plan, organize, and implement Bush's impeachment. We'll deal with Cheney and the rest of his cronies next. For now, we need to concentrate on getting Bush out of office. He's dangerous for this country, and the world. The rich keep getting richer, and the poor keep getting poorer. There is no middle class any more. No one can move up unless they win the lottery. We need to impeach him right now. An unjustified war, a terrible economy (REGARDLESS of what corporate-controlled media outlets say), insane oil prices, no respect for the environment, no respect for the intelligence he is given prior to our disasters (briefs on 9/11 that Condee ignored, briefs on the dreaded disaster that was predicted in New Orleans years ago), reducing the role of FEMA, promoting total incompetents in his administration...the list goes on and on. He's a dumb, meanspirited, but very AMBITIOUS individual who looks out only for self-interests, and those of his select few circles of rich white folks and corporations. He gets his way with everything, and he must now be stopped, once and for all. He's an embarrassing bully that I never call my president. We need to impeach him now. He's a brainless, heartless loser who's killing millions of people....both literally and figuratively, because he has killed their spirit.

it is time to remove bush and his cabinet.

He's got to GO!!!!!

George W. Bush, his cabinet, his parents need to step aside or better yet, be forced aside. This "group" has not done one thing to improve anything in this country or the world. They are truly an embarrassment and as if it wasn't already bad enough, Hurricane Katrina and the lack of immediate help from the federal government, really topped it off. I am waiting to hear from Democratic Congressmen,Senators, Governors, Mayors, Citizens. It appears Cindy Shehan and Chuck Hagel are the only ones speaking out. Where are these leaders? I'm horrified. IMPEACH HIM AND HIS CABINET!!!!!!!
