Sorry if this has been posted already, I didn't see it anywhere.

Following an objection by Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), a vote has been postponed on “contempt resolutions against White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former presidential political guru Karl Rove for failing to respond to subpoenas” regarding the U.S. attorney scandal. Specter, who asked Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) for a chance to “revise the draft resoltions, warned that the whole matter could end in federal court.”

We are all feeling the same way. Sometimes you just have to laugh at how incredibly stupid these idiots are. The American people are waking up FINALLY, and most of them don't believe their bullshit anymore. Even people who used to believe them. I truly didn't think *ush was arrogant enough to welcome Wolfowitz back, but then I should have. The creep has no shame.

Edited to correct spelling

Dear Senator Kucinich,

Please hand deliver my email urging immediate impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney to Madam Speaker Pelosi.

Dear Madam Speaker Pelosi:

Any elected senator or congressman who takes the oath of office, swears to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. In my opinion, and the opinion of countless other americans, including constitutional scholars, that means it is their duty to impeach not only Vice President Cheney, but also President Bush, for crimes committed since they have taken office.

It is illegal to lead America into a war under false pretences, and this has been proven to be the case. Any President or Vice President who knowingly breaks the laws of the Constitution must be impeached. If we do not impeach them, then our Constitution has become just another piece of paper.

Thank you for your time.

I hope this hasn't already been posted. The neocons are trying to revive the electoral college grab in California. Article from Sacramento Bee today.

I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I
and you are you: whatever we were to each other,
that we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in
the easy way which you always used. Put no
difference into your tone, wear no forced air of
solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we
enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for
me. Let my name be forever the same as it always
was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the
ghost of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as
it always was; there is absolutely unbroken
continuity.

I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near, just around the corner..........
All is well.

Canon Scott Holland


Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family OMC. This poem was given to me when my parents passed away. I keep it on the wall in my living room along with their pictures. I got and still get great comfort from it. I hope it does the same for you.

for President Eisenhower in the last few years. I never really studied him because he was a Republican and was slightly before my time. He saw what was going to happen with corporatism in our society and warned against it. Looks like he warned us about milatarism also. Thank you for posting this. I am going to copy and keep it.

He doesn't have a chance in winning with the media so focused on the top three candidates. I found the support they have from the pharms and insurance companies very disturbing. I am going to email all three and ask them why they are taking money from them when those industries are so busy ripping off the American people. Dennis is so right on with HR 676, I don't know why more people aren't hollering at the top of their lungs demanding it.

Best vote I made in that state election. Thank God, McPherson didn't do a good enough job of "fixing" the vote. Not that he didn't try. She's kicking ass and taking names. He shouldn't have had the job to begin with. Typical sleeze bag republican.

I listened to some republicans calling in on Cspan this evening and it seems the tide is turning. After tonights debate there were as many pubs against *ush as there were for. It suprised me. We need more people in office like Debra. Honest, hard working and patriotic.

Not to be judgemental but I really don't like this post or the question. We will forever be apart as Americans unless we can somehow rise above and come together. I know the past few years have been horendous and the republican party has gone to hell with dishonesty and shameful behavior, but the majority of the people who follow them are in the dark about whats going on. Most of them are used to being led around by the noses. We need to keep fighting to get the word out and to demand accountability from government. I can see it happening all around us now. It's like the damn is just so close to bursting. More and more news outlets are starting to report on more than just right wing talking points. I know Fox and CNN are probably lost causes but look at whats been happening at MSNBC.

I hope you are wrong and they don't wish anything of the sort. Maybe I'm naive but in order for this country to survive, we need to be united. Maybe thats wishful thinking but more and more people are waking up to the fact that we have all been lied to and used. My wish is that one day *ush will wake up and find himself alone.

At any rate, I adore Elizabeth Edwards and wish the very best for her and her family.

Right, and your not a right leaning neo con. You may have forgotten but your half lost the election to those hippies. You might want to check them out. They actually believe that every religion has values. That people actually have the right to worship whosover they choose. That peace is always better than war. Just ask the families of those who have died in this illegal war. If all you care about is winning something, why don't you try winning in a way that will help America. Maybe work on Global Warming, or something important. Your article is just an attack on American citizens who have just as much worth as you. Only, they seem to be a little smarter than you.



Thanks for your time.

That is why she came out spinning today saying she couldn't recall as usual. I remember watching it and I remember her with her hand up taking the oath. Am I wrong?

And welcome to DU Wholetruth00!

Edited to welcome.

I have signed so many petitions, I've lost tract. I hope this gains momentum. If it does it will reach the MSM and they'll have to acknowledge it. I am going to email other networks and ask them to report on it.

that Valerie Plame was about to come forward and present information that in fact Saddam had no WMD? Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want but nowadays I am exactly that. Nothing surprises me anymore.

I wonder what happens to unused ballots? Maybe they should be preserved in future elections also. If there is suspicion that punchcards were punched prior to an election, you could then go to the unused cards to check them for tampering.
