from day one the bush admin has told us to shut the F*#@* up and accept the lies dished out about 911 and the invasion of Iraq.

People are finally starting to demand some answers, and it's not the mainstream media!

if u want to take a look at the unanswered questions, see this film online... http://www.loosechange911.com/

Harry Taylor stands up to Bush. Apr. 22nd, 2006 @ 04:12 pm
woolymths
I assume most are aware of this but I haven't seen anything about it in any of the communities or on the news.. So I'm linking this just in case..

Posted by Thinkprogress.org on April 6, 2006, "This morning in Charlotte, a Bush PR event on the war on terror went off-script when a man named Harry Taylor took the microphone."


There's the script and a video link

You could also go to thankyouharrytaylor.org to thank him for his courage to say what he did in front of all of Bush's followers. I'm amazed he spoke as clearly as he did. I would've been shaking. Especially when Bush starting walking to the front of the stage sheilding the lights to get a better look at him. Then Bush went on to saying that he wouldn't apologize for what he's done, when Taylor clearly wasn't implying that he should.

Riddle

On his trip to Great Britain, George Bush had a meeting with Queen
Elizabeth. He asked her, "How does one manage to run a country so
smoothly?"

"That`s easy," she replied, "You surround yourself with intelligent
ministers and advisors."

"But how can I tell whether they are intelligent or not?" he inquired.

"You ask them a riddle," she replied, and with that she pressed a button
and said, "Would you please send Tony Blair in."

When Blair arrived, the Queen said, "I have a riddle for you to answer
for
me. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it was not
your
brother. Who was this child ?"

Blair replied, "That`s easy. The child was me."

"Very good," said the Queen, "You may go, now."

So President Bush went back to Washington and called in his chief of
staff,
Karl Rove. He said to him, "I have a riddle for you, and the answer is
very
important. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it
was
not your brother. Who was this child?"

Rove replied, "Yes, it is clearly very important that we determine the
answer, as no child must be left behind. Can I deliberate on this for a
while?" "Yes," said Bush, "I'll give you four hours to come up with the
answer."

So Rove went and called a meeting of the White House Staff, and asked
them
the riddle. But after much discussion and many suggestions, none of them
had a satisfactory answer. So he was quite upset, not knowing what he
would
tell the President.

As Rove was walking back to the Oval Office, he saw former Secretary of
State Colin Powell approaching him. So he said, "Mr. Secretary, can you
answer this riddle for me. Your parents had a child and it was not your
sister and it was not your brother. Who was the child?"

"That's easy," said Powell, "The child was me."

"Oh thank you," said Rove, "You may just have saved me my job!"

So Rove went in to the Oval Office and said to President Bush, "I think
I
know the answer to your riddle. The child was Colin Powell!"

No, you idiot!" shouted Bush, "The child was Tony Blair!"

"...reserving marriage as a union between a man and a woman, there is one way to do so, without the courts making the decision. That's through the constitutional process and obviously I think that's the way to go, because I am concerned that courts are making this decision. This is too important a decision to have a handful of judges making, on behalf of the American people"
i a have an idea. how about instead of the courts making the decision or one man, how about this... let it up to the indiviuals to decide. afterall, as americans and having all these freedoms shouldn't our sexual preference also be our choice?

When asked “Can we win?” the war on terror, Bush said, “I don’t think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that the — those who use terror as a tool are — less acceptable in parts of the world.”
wait. every week he specificly says "we will win". so, our aim isn't to win afterall, its just
to make terroism less acceptable.

"What is necessary to defeat that sentiment that causes people to be suiciders and just kill innocent people for the sake of religion or a fake religion? And my judgment on that is the best way to do it is to spread freedom.."
to spread freedom because that's what god told him to do. because "fake" religion should not be tolerated.

"I think they pray (bin laden...etc) to a false God, otherwise they wouldn't be killing … like they have been."
he seems to forget that many people of christian faith have also spilled their share of blood over the years and "in the name of god".

"Well, I -- first of all, I would never justify -- I would never use God to promote foreign policy decisions."
yet, he said god told him to do it. maybe bush is more confused then i am.

"Where we see suffering we will help."
i can think of a few thousands katrina victims who probably
see things differently.

"If I worried about polls, I wouldn't be doing my job"
in other words who cares what the people want.

"I think a lot of people are glad, I know a lot of people are glad we're there. And they're glad we're helping them train their troops so they can take the fight."
he should know that over three fourths of them want the U.S. out and almost half support bombing ours asses while there. perhaps he is waiting for god to tell him its okay for troops to leave. he says god told him to go in the first place so who wouldn't expect further instructions.

"now let's work together to rebuild Iraq, rebuild Afghanistan, fight AIDS and hunger, deal with slavery, like sex slavery, and deal with proliferation. Let's work together on big issues."
yea, why don't we work on big issues. lets deal with these issues within our own damn country. he wants to protect us for terrorists but doesn't care if we starve.

"I believe America, given its position in the world, must use our power to promote freedom."
our power? is it any wonder why people like bin laden think that america is about world domination?

"....make sure that Iraq is not a safe haven for terrorist plotting. That's been pretty much the stated objective all along."
well, what about the 39 other countries that have bin laden's jihad branches?and who knows how many other regimes there are. bushs acts as if Iraq is the only place that terrorists can be.
and i thought it was to get those weapons of mass destruction. no wait, it was to get bin laden. no, that's not right. we were after saddam because even though bush said in late 2001 that saddam was no threat, he became one in 2003 all of a sudden and to quote bush "don't forget this is the man who tried to kill my father."
well if bush sr. would have kept his nose out of saddam business and stayed in the U.S. saddam would not have had reason to be after daddy.

Some Numbers Apr. 3rd, 2006 @ 02:20 am
bakushin
72% of U.S. troops serving in Iraq believe out troops should leave within the next year.
of course Bush doesn't want us to know that even our troops want us out. day adter day, year after year, he just keeps babbling on about how troops must remain in order for the U.S. to obtain victory. victory of what?

how are we suppose to know that turnging iraq's world upside down is going to work if troops never leave?

i think there'll always be permitted american presence there. why wlse are we building "little americas" throughout iraq? millions upon millions have gone into huge bases as well.

87% of all iraqi's want an end to the U.S. occupation and 47% support attacks on the U.S. troops.
well, they don't want us there and haven't from the beginning. many americans no longer want our troops there. how can Bush ignore the numbers?

our troops are fighting for their freedom supposedly and half of them support bombing our asses anyway. so, why the hell are we there?

there is an estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
i am against illegal immgiration. key word "illegal". i don't think its fair that those who are not citizens have jobs that i could have, get government benefits that i'm not even entitled to. the home countries of these immigrants should do more for them instead of getting made at the U.S. for wanting to put a stop to it. they come here for work, well, i want work too. i can't find it here. doe that mean i should go into some other country and expect their government to ignore the fact that i am there illegally and let me work without paying taxes to contribute to their country?

according to bush immigrants do the work that "americans won't do". maybe bush should step outside his circle and see exactly what some americans do to support their families. maybe he should ask the milllions of umemployed citizens what they would and would not do.

Pissed off all over again.... Mar. 31st, 2006 @ 11:53 pm
blue_sky_miner
I was just browsing the net and came across a video of that dirtbag "president" sitting for five minuts doing absolutely nothing as the planes hit the towers on 9/11. He didn't move. He didn't even ATTEMPT to move. He sat there in awe of a children's book while citizens he was suppose to serve died tragic deaths.

One major thing I still don't not understand is why didn't the secret service move him away to a safe location? His schedule was publicly available that day and anyone, terrorists included, could access it. Yet he sat there, endagering not only himself, but the children in the classroom as well. Why did'nt anyone make him leave?

It just pisses me off all over again to think that ignorant putz is running a country. Good lord help us... we're fucked.

I was thinking earlier about joinign an anti-bush LJ community and found this one to be the best (and most intelligent) by far.

A little about me: Native Californian, moved to Utah a couple years ago. Presently stuck in the middle of a conservative wasteland.

Greatest moment: Well, ranking up there towards the top (alongside my marriage and college graduation) is giving Bush the finger as his limmo drove by during his tour of Sacramento a few years back. I was standing on the corner with a bunch of idiots who were actually clapping as as he made the turn in front of me, he smiled and gave the "thumbs up" sign. So I gave him the finger in return. He saw it and visibly cringed.... awww memories !

Well, don't know how often I will post, but will try to drop by on occasion...

I know a lot of people are aware of such topics.. but not enough.
Every American should watch this.
and this, concentrating on the Pentagon.


Everyone, this is at least worth thinking about. I know that through it all I always wondered why I thought our country was more in control, had better security and had more intelligence.

Because it does.

Maybe this is why we haven't had an attack since. No one knows why we haven't. Especially after seeing the incompetence with Katrina. We've just been told that security has changed since 9/11. But really.. it looks like it's up to ourselves to find out the truth.

So all this news about the hurricane, and there is going to be a congressional inquiry into what happened... so they are going to spend money on people to more or less point the finger on who was the most repsonsible.. wouldnt that money be better allocated towards the rebuilding down there? because what good is it going to do if we know who didnt do anything a few weeks ago? are we going to make them sit in the corner or spank them? Yes the relief effort was a little slow, yes they need more help down there. but this doesnt seem to be building houses or cleaning out dead bodies.. maybe someone here can fill me in on what I am missing.. thanks

So, where the hell is our national guard? IN IRAQ. Now, when our country needs them the most they are oversea's for no reason that I can see. Sadly, since we got in that mess we can't just leave...then it would all be in vain. Watching Anderson Cooper on CNN was ridiculous, because he was obviously in shock and the devastation in those southern states is horrible. There is going to be more death from the after math than the storm itself. I don't think Bush is doing enough. Obviously, there was no way to stop the storm, but we could have been way better prepared for it and its aftermath. It is sickening to think there are people dead and dying down there with water over their heads and no food, water, medical care, supplies...Do I blame people for looting? Hell no. Bush just pisses me off...we need our national guard! THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE THERE FOR.

I just had to rant.

Bring Them Home Now Tour
From Camp Casey, Crawford to Washington DC

From George Bush’s door step to Communities along the way, We Demand That:

* Elected Representatives Decide Now to Bring the Troops Home
* We Take Care of Them When They Get Here
* We Never Again Send Our Loved Ones to War Based on Lies!


We are currently at a significant turning point in how the American public views the war in Iraq. As the death toll in Iraq rises, Cindy Sheehan’s vigil near President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of Americans. Bush’s approval rating is falling. The voice of military families, who have lost loved ones and those with loved ones in harm’s way or about to deploy, can activate the American people. The voice of veterans, both of this war and of previous wars will also build the movement to end the war. Together these critical voices can demand that President Bush make the decision now to bring the troops home.

Hey, My name is Meaghan, I`m new to this community...I`m mostly just going around ranting and raving about my thoughts, so I thought why not say what I think about Bush..

Okay, first of all I understand why we would go to war after somebody bombs us, but not with the totally wrong country. What I am EXTREMELY upset at is that there might be a draft. My boyfriend would have to be drafted obviously & the only reason I wouldnt is because I have bipolar and shit, and it just bugs me that all of us know he`s going to send all the poor & middle class kids to war, HIS kids arent going to be out there fighting, oh no not his precious children, he has to bring everyone elses out there to fight,die,& get hurt, while his whole family is at home watching tv or ordering people around. That's unfair and wrong. In my point of view, He`s a fucking idiot, and if he wants to go to war at least go to war WITH THE RIGHT COUNTRY. Now all the other countries fucking hate us, So if the war gets bigger none of them will help us, and all of this is because of a narrow minded piece of shit president who has a fetish for getting oil.

Another thing, maybe this is just me....But doesn't it seem weird that Bush one the election...I mean, maybe I`m wrong...But EVERYWHERE I went I saw anti bush everywhere, and bush jokes & parodies. It seemed not alot of people liked him, & were just fed up....but then he won the election?....idk im probably just being stupid but that does rub off on me wierd. I mean you can basically go anywhere and shit on Bushes name without worrying, cause pretty much you just expect that they hate him. It's just my opinion , but I think that something was going on in that election.

Alot of the stuff I said may be out of the wrong point of view, or the wrong facts & shit, but im only 15 , yet i still know bush is a fucktard.

Day one in Crawford. Aug. 24th, 2005 @ 02:30 pm
memorycatcher
After all the tribulations to get here we finally have landed. That’s right; I am now far enough away that you can get away with almost anything with out my knowing it. Or will I?

When you first arrive in town you are encouraged to stop at the Peace House in downtown (if you can call it that) Crawford and check out what is happening that day and get a feel for the place. It is a great place to stop in, escape the heat and talk with like minded people. It is covered in posters, cardboard torn into pieces big enough to write a message to president bush. There are people helping cook, helping clean, making phone calls, greeting new people, writing up press releases and so much more.

When you first get there, a team of volunteers gets you orientated, explains the rules and the events of the day. Today was about a million degrees outside so the volunteers were absolutely melting but they were still friendly and helped us get our bearings. I was disappointed that there was no dancing or singing of show tunes.

There were a couple of loud vocal performances of a different kind though. We arrived just as school was getting out and children were returning home on their busses. Three buses, the standard yellow kind, rolled past while I was standing out front. “Go Home” they shouted verily at us, obviously annoyed by the invasion of all of us liberals in their town. They hissed and snarled but I could only make out what one girl said, “Go Home!” I wondered why she cared so much. She was far too young to drive and be unconvinced by the traffic. She was probably indoctrinated by her parents. “Go Home” she said again, as if we didn’t get it the first time. I wanted to say, “Stop yelling at me and spend your time reading, thinking beyond what your parents say.” I didn’t say those things because it would have taken far longer than the 2 seconds to yell and if I tried, I would just be yelling at other protesters but directed at the bus. I also didn’t yell because she probably doesn’t know any better. Out here in nowheresville, Texas there aren’t 20 newspapers to choose from and internet isn’t as readily available. People are trapped with ideas regergrgated by bad politicians because they don’t know how to expose themselves to other ideas. New information can be uncomfortable and should be investigated only when most necessary if you are live in some parts of the country

I tried to get online at the peace house but I couldn’t. I couldn’t talk to my bayba just then and I was disappointed. I wanted to share our triumphant arrival. Donna then wanted to go to both of the camps and see which one she liked more. I had gotten directions to both camps before leaving.

We drove past camp 1. Camp one is the camp that you have probably seen on news reports and in the news paper. When I saw it, I literally had a new respect for Cindy. The camp is a long series of cars, tents and chairs set up along a drainage ditch. This isn’t any pseudo drainage ditch either; it is a real ditch with a long dip in the middle. People were lining up, happily sleeping in a ditch for the cause we all believe in. Tents are all different sizes, shapes, colors and some have been individualized by different posters and signs. Some of the posters just demand answers; some of the posters are more blunt or viral than that. Some people put the banner from the organization they represent on their cars to block the sun and to advertise their cause.

Ditchville is full of people who have been here since nearly the beginning; camp 2 is for newbie’s and those who might need a little more comfort. I think amongst those who have been here for more than ten days feel that camp Casey 1 (Ditchville) is the heart or the capital of the protest. It the place where it all began and hopefully it will be the place where it ends. The peace house may be a logistical center but the movement’s momentum comes from camp Casey 1.

The sheriff’s department has decreed that any car that doesn’t have all four wheels off the concrete will be towed. This makes sense because the town is very small and the roads are narrow. Every night they come by and if they have a bug up their butt they tow the offending cars away.

Everyone told her there wasn’t much room in camp 2 but I wanted to look anyways. It turns out there is more than ample room for tents there and we could have easily stayed. Excited I jumped out of the car and hoofed it to the tent.

Camp 2 was on land whose use was donated by a local rancher. The ground is flat; there is a beautiful meadow all around us. It is springing up with what look like mini sunflowers. There is a giant tent, rumored to have been used by “W” for a fund raiser, is an impressive sight. It is white, set against the greens and blues of this part of Texas; it stands about thirty feet high with three rises held by six giant poles. Each pole has at least one light the size medium television hanging off to illuminate it during the evening. There is a full kitchen including two gas stoves with ovens, tray warmers, cleaning areas, prep areas and serving counters. There is a team of volunteers that work seemingly around the clock to make sure that the protestors are fed and watered. You literally don’t have to buy any food once you are here.

Each of the camps has a medic, water, food, fun stuff to do, and great conversation.

Donna decided that she would ask permission to stay at camp 2. I didn’t hear what she said but I got the impression that she conceded the loss before the negotiations began. Donna had talked us out of a spot in the palace and we returned to Ditchville. By then all I wanted to do was be done with walking around. I set up my tent and made a b-line for the shuttle.

The shuttle runs to both camps and the peace house. It is run by volunteers and it isn’t strictly regimented. Shuttles are always air conditioned though. It is a nice break from the world to go in the ten minute drive and escape the heat. It is sooooooooo hot here.

I came to camp Casey 2 not knowing that it is so sophisticated, for a squatting area. It has a media camp and wireless internet access. CNN was there when we pulled into camp. I guess they are trying to catch a riot or something.

The stories are so interesting. People were all inspired by the same thing and different things as well.

I was befriended at the Peace house by a man named Darby. He bravely came from across Texas. Darby’s brother in law believes that the 9/11 attackers were from Iraq and in fact none were from Saudi Arabia. He became irate when Darby even suggested that he was wrong. Saudi Arabia is our friend he argued, Iraq is our enemy. Mr. Brother in Law got so angry he left the restaurant in a huff.

Darby had always been against the war, he saw through the bull sit bush was spewing. Still, Darby has to fight the good fight in the belly of the beast. When he heard about Cindy he did everything he could to get down here to assist her in her efforts. He lives four hours away and has made the trip to Crawford several times.

Tom is a professional bachelor. He lives in Louisiana on 57 acres in the bayou. Tom admitted to me that he wasn’t very knowledgeable but could see that the war is crap. He is a vet from Korea (I think). He is very mild mannered, even keeled and introverted. His lifestyle doesn’t allow much cross talk, communication and debate. He doesn’t have a television, he doesn’t subscribe to a news paper. He is exactly the kind of person you don’t expect to be at a protest, especially for a peace group.

He heard about Cindy Sheehan and looked it up on the internet. Subsequently, Tom stumbled on to information he was disgusted to learn. He learned and was outraged by the man who shot off his gun and the man who drove through the sacred cemetery. He felt that the people of the protest might be in danger and he wanted to protect them. “Let them go through me.”, he commented.

Tom was moved by Cindy and by the people of the community acting so hostile toward the protestors. Tom’s urge to protect the protestors, their beliefs and his country drove him to come to Texas.

Allen was my shuttle driver last night. He came because he finally felt there was a person he could rally around. He left his job with nearly no notice to come here for two weeks. His wife came here when Cindy first arrived. She was here for a couple of weeks. They, as a couple, are so motivated for the change that could be made here, that they are willing to sacrifice their jobs and their financial well being to participate in something so important.

I spoke with a secret service officer for about ½ hour. He told me where he used to work an explained why in the hell they do counterfeit money and protection. (We have all wondered.) He explained all those things that made me wonder. He also told me that they have a good idea of who is here. I guess that means I’m busted but he didn’t arrest me. (He doesn’t know everything I guess.)

I was up in camp two until six in the morning talking to people, writing in my blog. Day two tonight.

"I love democracy."

Random Thoughts Aug. 5th, 2005 @ 02:25 am
bakushin
(pres. bush had mentioned several times that he believes god wanted him to be president, that god is leading him down this path. this makes me feel uneasy. people normally get locked up for saying that god or the devil wanted him to do it. instead of getting locked up he become the leader of millions of people.)

The biggest problem with president bush is he can not keep his religious beliefs out of his political duties. he has made comments that basically said that if more people were christian then the world would be more peaceful. he makes it sound as if someone who is not christian could not possibly have a good heart and a sense a moral. he just can’t believe that religion is not what makes a person feel and think the way they do. he’s mentioned so many times that this war on terror is not a war of religion but a war against evil. if he believes that they why does the man make so many religious references? i don’t feel that any political leader should use their religion as a guideline on how to carry out their duties.

Politics and church are suppose to remain separate. i guess someone failed to tell him.

"If you're interested in preserving marriage as a union between a man and a woman, there is one way to do so, without the courts making the decision. That's through the constitutional process and obviously I think that's the way to go, because I am concerned that courts are making this decision. This is too important a decision to have a handful of judges making, on behalf of the American people," Bush said.

of course he is against gay marriage. the bible taught him that a man should have a woman. yet, in america all people are suppose to be equal which should mean we all have the same rights.

he misses the point that not all americans feel that marriage should be between a man and women.

The greatest freedom we have - or one of the greatest freedoms - is the right to worship the way you see fit. And on the other hand “I don't see how you can be president - at least from my perspective, how you can be president, without a - without a relationship with the Lord," he added.

“That's the great thing about America is the right to worship the way you see fit.’

if that’s the case then why did Bush also say "I don't think that witchcraft is a religion. I wish the military would rethink this decision."

"We Americans have faith in ourselves, but not in ourselves alone. We do not claim to know all the ways of providence, yet we can trust in them, placing our confidence in the loving God behind all of life and all of history. May he guide us now, and may God continue to bless the United States of America."

"This is an awesome job. With it comes big responsibilities, and my faith is going to help me handle the job. My faith will help me handle the responsibilities inherit in the job... and the pressures."

"God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East.”

“Separation of church and state [is] important in America. And by that I mean the people of faith should participate in the state, and there's a difference.”

"July 07, 2005

President Bush had another bicycle mishap. this time plowing into a Scottish police officer and sending him to the hospital.

Our steady leader has now fallen off a Segway scooter, slammed his head on Marine One, dropped his dog, desecrated a flag, choked on a pretzel, not to mention being violated by a turkey and outwitted by an umbrella."

President George W. Bush has nominated federal appeals court judge John Roberts to succeed Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

"Advocacy groups on the right say that Roberts has strong conservative credentials. But critics say Roberts has taken positions in cases involving free speech and religious liberty that endanger those rights.

And abortion rights groups allege that Roberts is hostile to women's reproductive freedom. They cite a brief he co-wrote in 1990 that suggested the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 high court decision that legalized abortion." - NBC4 (Washington)

I value my freedoms as a woman, including the right to choose. Since Roberts has already openly admitted infront of the supreme court that the Roe V. Wade case should be over-ruled, this is a big deal to fellow pro-choicers.
This whole thing is just a strong disappointment to me..
