Just kicked in another $100. It’s not much, but hopefully it will help meet your goal.

Keep up the good work. People like you help the rest of the world wake up to the insanity of our reality.

I’ve got a 13 year old and a 7 year old and I am scared to death about the draft talk (a 10 year plan for Iraq, God knows what for Iran and now Syria, and a decimated military mean they’ll be needing more meat for the grinder). I’m old enough to remember what it was like during Vietnam . I remember my mother crying because young men that she had taught in high school were coming home dead or maimed. I’m no pacifist but I’ll be damned if I sacrifice my children for the wrong war for the wrong reasons at the wrong time in the wrong place. No one should have to give their life for the sake of corporate profits – and that goes for miners as well as soldiers.

I’m tired of the dog and pony show politics of this war. I’m sickened by the war profiteering and the overall corruption of Bush Co. and the GOP in general. Whenever I hear “the Democrats were corrupt, too, when they were in power” I want to scream. There’s a difference between stealing big and stealing little. Neither one is right, but I’ll take the little over the big any day (beside the fact that the Dems were still doing some good things).

Most of all, I’m sick of the attitude that we work for Washington , instead of Washington working for us.

Who do we have to blow to get these idiots impeached? ; )



Big hug, Shari.  You know I appreciate your ongoing support!


I feel the same way you do and have ever since Jeb Bush stepped over his own Florida Supreme Court and went to the US Supreme Court to get his brother elected president.


Stealing is a Bush family value, eh? Whether it be elections or oil or our civil rights.


I know how you feel about your children and the draft.  I have a 21 year old who will graduate next June with a double major, Chinese and Criminology. I sure don't want him to be drafted either.  I believe Americans would reject any draft talk, heck, most Americans are against the war.


I know of no Democrat who lied to us into a pre-emptive invasion of a country and then outed a CIA agent whose husband was a critic of the president's claims AND took away most of our civil rights at the same time. And yet the Democrats have been as effective as a wet noodle in fighting these mad men.


To answer your question: "Who do we have to blow to get these idiots impeached? ; ) " --  Bill Clinton? Just kidding.


Thank you again.
