Cindy Sheehan: Vermont, Land of Hope

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

My recent trip to Turkey opened my eyes further to anti-American hatred. As more and more people in the occupied countries of Afghanistan and Iraq are being killed by American troops or by violence that didn't exist before America existed in their countries, the intensity of the hostility is escalating along with the escalating violence. At a "peace" conference I attended in Istanbul, I was appalled when attendee after attendee rose up from the audience to commend my fellow panelist, an Iraqi scientist, on the insurgency in Iraq that was giving the world "hope" by staving off the self entitled "mightiest military in history." I was as appalled because a violent insurgency was applauded as I am appalled that a violent regime in DC is still in power to continue devastating the world that encourages people to place their hope in the Iraqi resistance.

Obviously George has learned a thing or two from Poppy! "George W. Bush learned at least one lesson from his father: You want your federal prosecutors to be team players who will throw a political elbow or two when the White House needs some help ... George Bush is moving to ensure that he won't be sabotaged by ... independent-minded prosecutors ... the White House approved the firing of seven U.S. attorneys at the end of 2006 after the Justice Department identified them as insufficiently supportive of the President's policies." Key words here being "insufficiently supportive of the president's policies"! Would that include illegal policies?

Republicans opposing the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act are lying up a storm to swing public opinion against the proposed law. Their primary attack claim is that the bill denies workers a free, fair election by secret ballot. Unfortunately, there is nothing free or fair about the current system of voting on unionization. The law is tilted heavily in favor of company power and against the workers.

At this point in his sorry presidency
When his prospects are so bleak
He’d rather be yelled at by protesters
In a language he doesn’t speak.

"If you can't say anything nice about someone, come sit next to me." So read an embroidered pillow on a sofa in the salon of one of Washington's great dames, the late Alice Roosevelt Longworth.

Saying the word impeachment in some circles is like farting aloud. It has a stunning effect. We need to re-educate ourselves and our loved ones. We especially need to educate our political leaders and elected representatives, who are failing to do the job they were elected to do.
