Naked biker draws stares

By Shea Drefs, Arizona State University

An unknown naked young woman was spotted riding a bicycle around the Memorial Union Wednesday, police and witnesses said.

Tempe resident Elizabeth Brown, 23, said she was eating outside the MU at about 11 a.m. when she saw the woman riding toward the union.

"She was just wearing a Sun Devils baseball cap and a pair of sneakers," she said.

The woman had "Pro-choice" airbrushed on one leg, "Impeach Bush" on the other and "No oil" on her chest, Brown said.

Strategy for meeting with Congresspeople on impeachment

Work with the campaign office
By Carol Wolman, http://www.opednews.com

Congresspeople have two offices, a congressional office, which handles their current business, and a campaign office, which handles their upcoming election, which occurs every two years. Staying in Congress is a prime goal, as committee assignments and power depend on seniority,- the number of times the person is re-elected. Therefore, the campaign office is ongoing. Often the same staff covers both offices locally.

Time to Impeach Bush

By BONNIE ERBE, Scripps Howard News Service

Those blasphemously "liberal" media outlets have once again deprived the American public of widespread coverage of nothing less than startling poll results. The non-partisan polling firm Zogby International last month found that by a margin of 52 percent to 43 percent, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush "if he wiretapped American citizens without a judge's approval."

PATHWAYS TO IMPEACHMENT

Our Representatives must act on behalf of "we the people".
By Carol Wolman, http://www.opednews.com

Impeachment is a legal process similar to arraignment, whereby a public official is charged with criminal conduct. In the case of the president and vice president, the House of Representatives acts as the prosecuting attorney, for the people. Its job is to investigate allegations of wrongdoing and, if warranted, to bring formal charges. The case then goes to the Senate, which acts as judge to find the official guilty or not guilty.

Why Peace Organizations Should Work for the Impeachment of Bush and Cheney

By David Swanson

1.-Impeachment is where people's energy is, all over the country. If we want a large and growing and democratic movement, we should listen to our members.

2.-Exposing the lies and the crimes related to this war is, more than anything else, building opposition to the war, as well as to future wars. There is no better way to expose the crimes than to demand an investigation that could lead to impeachment. (As demanded by H Res 635.)

Warrantless wiretaps, lying for war are impeachable acts

By KARL FORSYTH, Anchorage Daily News (Alaska)
http://www.adn.com

Twenty years ago, Neil Postman wrote in "Amusing Ourselves to Death" that meaningful political discourse had become impossible due to our ridiculously short attention spans, a phenomenon he attributed to the impact of television. Today, we continue to marinate in a flood of context-free entertainment/news fragments and sound bites, leaving us profoundly distracted and politically incoherent (but well-entertained). The bad news has only recently become apparent. Unprecedented abuses of political power are occurring on our watch. The abuses are getting more blatant by the day, yet we remain complacent. We're in danger of becoming the biggest banana republic in the world.

Mainstream arguments for impeachment

By Clarence Lusane, Pittsburgh Tribune Review
http://pittsburghlive.com

As the crimes of the Bush administration mount, it becomes increasingly difficult to avoid talk of impeachment.

As a result of his continuing abuse of power, the impeachment option is making its way from the margin to the mainstream. Legal scholars on the left and the right argue that Bush may have committed "high crimes and misdemeanors," as stated in Article II, Section 4, of the Constitution.
