A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Marjorie Cohn

As Congress debates whether to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, George Bush is trying to buy time. He and Dick Cheney have no intention of ever pulling out of Iraq.

Cindy Sheehan: Give War a Chance

Journey for Humanity and Accountability: Day 9

Being in the Deep South has been a very interesting experience. As George's approval numbers hover down somewhere in Congress's range and approval for their war is shrinking, we have encountered very little opposition to our message, but the opposition we have encountered has been vile, abusive, and potentially dangerous.

Over the last several election cycles, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its powerful corporate backers have been silently purchasing state Supreme Court seats across the country. As a result, many state supreme courts, which were once fair and neutral, now favor big business interests. This in turn has left average citizens without a voice in our court system and is making our system less democratic.

"Out of control, elitist power mongers" would be the best phrase to describe the political mindset of the Bush Republican machine. The current Bush Administration and their Senate allies are completely unwilling to bend to majority rule on the Iraq War or the other major issues of today. In the Republican elitist world, the people are to be ruled over instead of represented by Republican officeholders and judges.

The 59,130,092 Americans who voted for the re-election of "Bush-Cheney in '04" need to make some serious amends to the nation and world they have destroyed. They could start by burning their voter registration cards and making a commitment to never again darken the voting booths of this former democracy with their grossly incompetent, hopelessly inept electoral decision-making. Get a hobby, people. Grow vegetables, learn an instrument, take up knitting, do anything, but please, please don't ever cast another vote. You have proven incapable of being a responsible citizen, so don't even try. It's OK, we will forgive you if you promise never to vote again.

If a remedy is constitutionally required, the facts below dictate that House impeachment hearings begin soon. Speaker Pelosi is taking calls on impeachment -- pro or con -- at 202/225-0100.

The President and Vice President have committed high crimes in their conduct of national security. The high crimes constitute grave breaches of Commander-in-Chief authority, and apply equally to 9/11 and Iraq. Investigating these crimes can end the war in Iraq, cause the President and Vice President to resign, and change the direction of our country.

Journey for Humanity and Accountability: Day 7

The Journey for Humanity and Accountability took a two-day hiatus in Charlotte, NC while I traveled home to the Bay Area to attend the memorial service of a dear friend of mine. The rest of the group used the time in Charlotte to repair tires, rest, catch up on e-mails, and help work on the next few stops. In the meantime, to the consternation of the Democratic blogosphere, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has 7 more days to put impeachment back on the table. Very few people on these blogs recognize the fact that it's not my fault that Ms. Pelosi is not doing her job.

Day One

"La Toya Jackson."

The famous name drew laughter as it was read from the roll at the main New York County courthouse, 100 Centre Street. Hers was just one of a few hundred names read on a Monday morning four weeks ago, folks who had been called to serve on a state grand jury in Manhattan.

How do we get from where we are to where we need to be? We know there is a big gap between here and there. The people of this country need to act in the millions in visible and unmistakable ways if we are to have a chance at driving Bush and Cheney from power, repudiating what they stand for, and creating a wholly different political atmosphere.
