Impeach Bush

It’s natural for us Americans to be so sick and tired of the failed Bush Administration that all we want is to be rid of him, but it would be very unhealthy for America to let these criminals get away without so much as an investigation.

We don’t know if they’re guilty, but they have all admitted to criminal acts from ordering torture (while lying to us about it) to outing a huge CIA under-cover operation with the release of Valerie Plame’s identity. It’s time to investigate.

We can’t continue to allow one Republican president after another to go unpunished. It only encourages more presidents to push their limits, the limits our founding fathers put into the constitution to prevent this kind of activity. So, what’s to stop Obama from becoming even more of a tyrant than Bush, knowing that Americans are all a bunch of panty-waists too afraid or spineless to pursue justice. The best way to ensure future criminal presidents is to fail to prosecute when we have reasonable evidence to suggest a crime. And, I’m talking about a real crime, here, not concentual sex in the White House. I’m talking about treason and federal crimes like spying on the opposite political party and on the average American family.

It’s time to impeach! Shirking our duty, regardless of which party we support, would deal a huge blow to the future of America.

Impeach Bush NOW!

Governor Gibbons Failing at Record Rates

It is almost a complete consensus that the only way we can dig ourselves out of the disaster of the past 25 years of Conservative rule is to put money in the hands of the spenders. It’s painfully obvious that the past 25 years of “Free Market” nonsense and “Free Trade” foolishness is coming home to roost. Thank you, Conservatives.

Paul Krugman has a good piece in the NY Times regarding the important role state Governors will play in the recovery process:

But even as Washington tries to rescue the economy, the nation will be reeling from the actions of 50 Herbert Hoovers — state governors who are slashing spending in a time of recession, often at the expense both of their most vulnerable constituents and of the nation’s economic future.

These state-level cutbacks range from small acts of cruelty to giant acts of panic — from cuts in South Carolina’s juvenile justice program, which will force young offenders out of group homes and into prison, to the decision by a committee that manages California state spending to halt all construction outlays for six months.

Now, state governors aren’t stupid (not all of them, anyway). They’re cutting back because they have to — because they’re caught in a fiscal trap. But let’s step back for a moment and contemplate just how crazy it is, from a national point of view, to be cutting public services and public investment right now.

So now is the time to invest in the public – and what is Nevada’s Governor Gibbons doing? He’s trying to cut the pay of state employees, he’s cutting services that are intended to keep the most vulnerable in our society from suffering and dying, and he’s continuing the nausiating mantra, “no new taxes”. Sorry, Jim Gibbons, but everyone – but you – knows that your actions are the worst way you could handle this emergency. You’re a true Republican, through and through. Nevada! It should be painfully obvious to you by now that this man is in over his head. Time to remove him before he can do any more harm.
