Check out this website!! All over the country people are planning a national day of impeachment-if you are in the Naples area please feel free to email me at for details on the event for Naples.

My heart goes out to the grieving families at Virginia Tech. No one should ever have to lose a loved one to senseless violence. That is the same reason we need to end this senseless war in Iraq. As of this writing the number of dead americans (the same ages as these young people at Virginia Tech) is up to 3316. I never thought we would end up with this many lost lives. So many people who never got to live up to their full potential. I do not understand a goverment that sends its nations young into a war with no plan and no understanding of what they were getting into.

This president has violated the constitution, he has broke the laws, he has lied and our kids have died. Impeachment is the only answer. The power is in the hands of the people. Please join me in impeachment rallies on the 28th of April. It is never too late to make a difference.

The above picture is just one of the many troops who have died for this lie. Please do something. If your not outraged, your not paying attention.

Goodbye and Good luck to MSNBC and CBS

To truly be liberal and believe in equal rights for all, one must support equal rights for all. I do not agree with what Don Imus said and it is high time people in this country start realizing that just because you do not believe someone should be taken off the air for an ignorant ill-concieved remark does not mean that I am racist. Quite the opposite as there are radio stations and television stations and comedians that make fun of white people i.e-cracker, whitey, the man, honky ad nauseum and yet there is never a big ruckus over those remarks. There are rap lyrics in particular that are much more harsh towards women and particularly black women than anything Imus said.

Personally, if something offends me, I do not expose myself to it again. That is why we have freedom of choice. The first amendment is so important they made it number 1!

I am afraid this entire debacle is going to set race relations back 40-50 years and that is a damn shame. Instead of MSNBC and CBS deciding to take the opportunity presented them to open a dialouge and perhaps to get others involved in changing the way women, especially black women are portrayed in music, and the like, they chose to kowtow to Reverend Al Sharpton and his ilk. Why? This man profits from the people he claims to be supporting-he has not met with these young ladies, he has not offered his hands up in prayer with them, he has used the public airwaves to preach his brand of Christianity and he has used them to fight ignorance with more ignorance, all ofthese things are wrong! The black community should feel very outraged at him for profiting and making his livelihood from the people he says he is "protecting". Since when? And when is he going to apologize to the Duke lacrosse players? When will he be held accountable for his words and actions?

If you want to call him on his radio show and voice your opinion-he is on Monday through Friday 1pm-4pm and the number is 1-877-532-5797.

Let freedom ring for all Americans. Not just the select few.

Thank you.

Yes Bush can be impeached!

Following please find the articles of impeachment against GW Bush and cronies.

Articles of Impeachment


President George W. Bush


Vice President Richard B. Cheney,
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice,
Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, and
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. - - ARTICLE II, SECTION 4 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard B. Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales have committed violations and subversions of the Constitution of the United States of America in an attempt to carry out with impunity crimes against peace and humanity and war crimes and deprivations of the civil rights of the people of the United States and other nations, by assuming powers of an imperial executive unaccountable to law and usurping powers of the Congress, the Judiciary and those reserved to the people of the United States, by the following acts:

1) Seizing power to wage wars of aggression in defiance of the U.S. Constitution, the U.N. Charter and the rule of law; carrying out a massive assault on and occupation of Iraq, a country that was not threatening the United States, resulting in the death and maiming of over one hundred thousand Iraqis, and thousands of U.S. G.I.s.

2) Lying to the people of the U.S., to Congress, and to the U.N., providing false and deceptive rationales for war.

3) Authorizing, ordering and condoning direct attacks on civilians, civilian facilities and locations where civilian casualties were unavoidable.

4) Instituting a secret and illegal wiretapping and spying operation against the people of the United States through the National Security Agency.

5) Threatening the independence and sovereignty of Iraq by belligerently changing its government by force and assaulting Iraq in a war of aggression.

6) Authorizing, ordering and condoning assassinations, summary executions, kidnappings, secret and other illegal detentions of individuals, torture and physical and psychological coercion of prisoners to obtain false statements concerning acts and intentions of governments and individuals and violating within the United States, and by authorizing U.S. forces and agents elsewhere, the rights of individuals under the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

7) Making, ordering and condoning false statements and propaganda about the conduct of foreign governments and individuals and acts by U.S. government personnel; manipulating the media and foreign governments with false information; concealing information vital to public discussion and informed judgment concerning acts, intentions and possession, or efforts to obtain weapons of mass destruction in order to falsely create a climate of fear and destroy opposition to U.S. wars of aggression and first strike attacks.

8) Violations and subversions of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, both a part of the "Supreme Law of the land" under Article VI, paragraph 2, of the Constitution, in an attempt to commit with impunity crimes against peace and humanity and war crimes in wars and threats of aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq and others and usurping powers of the United Nations and the peoples of its nations by bribery, coercion and other corrupt acts and by rejecting treaties, committing treaty violations, and frustrating compliance with treaties in order to destroy any means by which international law and institutions can prevent, affect, or adjudicate the exercise of U.S. military and economic power against the international community.

9) Acting to strip United States citizens of their constitutional and human rights, ordering indefinite detention of citizens, without access to counsel, without charge, and without opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge the detention, based solely on the discretionary designation by the Executive of a citizen as an "enemy combatant."

10) Ordering indefinite detention of non-citizens in the United States and elsewhere, and without charge, at the discretionary designation of the Attorney General or the Secretary of Defense.

11) Ordering and authorizing the Attorney General to override judicial orders of release of detainees under INS jurisdiction, even where the judicial officer after full hearing determines a detainee is wrongfully held by the government.

12) Authorizing secret military tribunals and summary execution of persons who are not citizens who are designated solely at the discretion of the Executive who acts as indicting official, prosecutor and as the only avenue of appellate relief.

13) Refusing to provide public disclosure of the identities anby the U.S. government in the United States, including in response to Congressional inquiry.

14) Use of secret arrests of persons within the United States and elsewhere and denial of the right to public trials.

15) Authorizing the monitoring of confidential attorney-client privileged communications by the government, even in the absence of a court order and even where an incarcerated person has not been charged with a crime.

16) Ordering and authorizing the seizure of assets of persons in the United States, prior to hearing or trial, for lawful or innocent association with any entity that at the discretionary designation of the Executive has been deemed "terrorist."

17) Engaging in criminal neglect in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, depriving thousands of people in Louisiana, Mississippi and other Gulf States of urgently needed support, causing mass suffering and unnecessary loss of life.

18) Institutionalization of racial and religious profiling and authorization of domestic spying by federal law enforcement on persons based on their engagement in noncriminal religious and political activity.

19) Refusal to provide information and records necessary and appropriate for the constitutional right of legislative oversight of executive functions.

20) Rejecting treaties protective of peace and human rights and abrogation of the obligations of the United States under, and withdrawal from, international treaties and obligations without consent of the legislative branch, and including termination of the ABM treaty between the United States and Russia, and rescission of the authorizing signature from the Treaty of Rome which served as the basis for the International Criminal Court.d locations of persons who have been arrested, detained and imprisoned

We have to remember-this war was not started to "liberate" people who did not ask for our help, this war was started and based on a lie-one that Dick Cheney is still repeating. This is a gross abuse of power.

Don Imus has hijacked the airwaves!

Stop and read before you take that too literally. I am not refering to the ignorant remarks he made, I am refering to the extensive over-coverage on the news. Seriously I want to know how many more troops have died for a lie, I want to know what is going on in North Korea I want to know if the democrats are going to back down or if Bush will finally realize he can not have an unlimited check anymore. There are much more important issues going on right now that the media is blantanly ignoring.

I obviously am not a huge fan of Imus however, he is a good person he does do alot of good deeds and he said a stupid thing, we can all agree on that can't we? But how come Al Sharpton who as of this writing has not even met with the Rutgers team, has become this mans judge and jury? As a reverend should he not be expressing a little more forgiveness and a little less hate? I think Al Sharpton is a well spoken man with important messages to be heard but when he comes across as more of a racist than Imus, I feel he needs to rethink how far he has fallen away from the Jesus he preaches of.

Personally, I feel like it is time to take Imus off the news every day all day long and get back tothe business of reporting the news and I feel that the good reverend needs to get back to tending his flock and off of my tv. It is all well and good to say change the channel but one can not do that when every channel is carrying the same thing. One thing for sure can already be said about this controversy-it has given the womens basketball team at Rutgers more press than they have ever recieved, and we all know the old saying that even bad press is good press-so in conclusion while I feel his remarks were out of line I also feel it is beyond time for the public flogging to end. Come on America-why are we so obbsessed with gossip and scandal that we let ourselves be diverted from all of the other issues around us?

As Keith Olbermann says-good night and good luck.

Hope everyone had a happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Ours was not bad. I was watching a special on CNN the other night entitled "What Would Jesus Really Do" and it was really interesting. It seems that the right and the left have both been guilty of sying what Jesus would do but how does anyone know for sure?

I tend to agree with the left though-Jesus would want programs to help the poor, Jesus would not agree with being pro-life only until the child is born then not giving a damn if it was being taken care of or even wanted. Jesus did say "Judge not lest ye be judged" yet the right is consistently judging people whos lifestyle or culture is different from their own. I think the right is going to have alot more explaining to do than the left. The left has higher success rates in their marriages than do the right, the left by and large raise more well-adjusted compassionate children as a rule and dammit-we are just plain better looking! :) Had to throw that in for fun :)

Seriously though-have you ever looked at the men and women at these pro-life rallies? NO one will have sex with them-they do not ever have to worry about being in the position of trying to decide what the best answer is for an unwanted pregnancy. Are these pro-lifers also against birth control? I had one tell me that having your tubes tied (which I did) is just as bad as an abortion!! This is truly how the most radical amongst them think, I do not know if they all feel that way, but a portion of them do, I have met them. They even believe if your a victim of rape or incest you should still have the child and just give it up for adoption! Yeah that is an idea I can really get behind (not) carry your violent attackers child for nine months watch your body change daily from something you had no control over, possibly have to have a C-section so now there is also an outer scar of an internal one. These people who say these things have never dealt with being sexually abused themselves (refer back to last paragraph) so it is easy for them to judge. They claim to be christians yet they do nothing to help a brother or sister out? How christian is that?

As for me, the jury is still out-I see things daily that make me think there has to be a God, then I read and watch things nightly that make me think"there is no way there is a God". I think religio is different from sprituality and shuld be for the very reason that many like myelf do not go to church. I do not go to church because of the people-theres Joe who beat his wife and kids last night but is sitting here like a good christian on Sunday-theres Maggie-she has slept with everyone in town and yet here she sits on sunday looking like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth when we all know who was in her mouth last night. Yet they sit and act so holy holy holy on sunday. (the above mentioned names and scenarios are fiction created by me to explain a point).

Spirituality is more of a serene experience whereby you know if you are truly a good person. I do not think I am a bad person because I do not go to church, but if I see my neighbors kids hungry and I do not feed them, yes I am a bad person. I truly believe in the golden rule-treat others how you want to be treated. If we all did that what a kinder gentler world we could live in.
