Bush's Wiretaps: Impeachment not Immunity
Two years ago, the NY Times revealed George Bush has been illegally wiretapping our phones and emails for years. Bush publicly admitted signing the authorizations for illegal wiretaps over 30 times.
Bush's warrantless wiretaps are a flagrant violation of the Fourth Amendment. And under the 1978 FISA law, the penalty for each of Bush's illegal wiretaps is up to $10,000 and 5 years in prison. Bush may have wiretapped millions of Americans, so he should not only be impeached, but he should spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Incredibly, "Bush Dog" Democrats led by House Majority Steny Hoyer not only refuse to impeach Bush - they want to immunize Bush and his co-conspirators, the telephone giants, so they never pay a penny or spend a day behind bars for their crimes.
Congress needs to hear from all of us today . Email your Representatives to demand impeachment, not immunity:
If you have time, call your Representative and Senators at 202-225-3121 and politely express your outrage and your demand for impeachment, not immunity, for Bush's illegal wiretapping.

Speaker Pelosi, Here is the Proof You Requested
On Tuesday's Ed Schultz Show, Nancy Pelosi struggled to explain why she opposes impeaching Bush and Cheney. She said if anyone could prove Bush committed impeachable offenses, they should contact her.
Of course violating the Fourth Amendment and FISA is impeachable, and it's proved by Bush's confession (see above). Rewriting laws with signing statements is impeachable, and it's proved by the statements posted on the White House website and by a GAO study finding that in many cases Bush has proceeded to violate the laws he claims the right to violate. Refusing to comply with subpoenas is impeachable, and there is no dispute that Bush and Cheney have refused to comply.
The evidence collected at http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/keydocuments proves that Bush and Cheney intentionally misled the nation into an illegal war of aggression. Numerous victims prove the practice of torture.
In sum, here are 10 provable reasons to impeach Bush and Cheney that you can send to Congress right now:
10/21-23 No War No Warming
Join a global movement rising up against war and global warming by participating in a massive intervention in Washington DC or your own community. We need to take immediate action to:
- STOP the war in Iraq and future resource wars by ending our addiction to fossil fuels.
- SHIFT government funding to rebuild New Orleans and all communities suffering from racism and corporate greed.
- GO green and promote environmental justice with new jobs in a clean energy economy.
10/27 National Mobilization to End the War in Iraq
70% of Americans want to end the U.S. Occupation of Iraq, but Bush wants to keep us there for decades - no matter how much it costs in U.S. or Iraqi lives and treasure.
Regional events are planned in 11 locations around the country on October 27th. Now is the time to start planning your busses, trains, and car pools.
11/9 Warmup for 12/7 National Caucus
When it comes to choosing our Presidential candidates, why does Iowa take priority over the rest of the country?
The National Presidential Caucus was created to give citizens across the country - Democrats, Republicans, and Independents - a chance to gather in small groups (up to 50 people) to discuss the candidates and vote.
Of course this vote is informal and will not choose any delegates for the convention. But it will get a lot of media coverage and will be a lot more meaningful than the polls - particularly for longer-shot candidates whose lower poll rankings reflects the Corporate Media's bias against them.
The full Caucus will be held on Friday December 7, using Meetup-style tools to help citizens connect. There will also be a Preliminary Straw Poll & Caucus Warmup on Friday, November 9, 2007
A New Kind of Shirt
There are two ways to handle a criminal president, and we must in the current case accomplish at least one of them, but preferably both. The first is impeachment. The second is criminal prosecution. One way you can help make this happen, as well as receive compliments and cheers just for walking by, is to buy and wear this new shirt. Here are close ups of the front and back:

A BRIEF ASIDE: That's five hundred dollars for the car this morning and five hundred for the yard and home. I think that's 277,500????
Oh and Tampa Fire DepartmentNaziBrigade, I didn't get time today to post the Pinellas boy but that's still on the agenda. Can anyone GUESS why?? Because EVERY time I look up some obscure or not so obscure Tampa Fire Brigade 'firefighting/stalking' vehicle is in my rearview mirror. Four times in less than 12 hours. Has that happened to any of you readers today??
Fire Brigade: See you in my rear view mirror. As usual. Pretty soon they'll be sending your paychex direct deposit to MY account. Because I deserve them more than any of you. Propsters.
Notice how this occurred AFTER I blogged it?? Which means that obviously these 'men' and 'women' read my blog closely. AND, they are all kindsa irritated that I followed their thug into the parking lot and took down his tag #. (after I took his picture AFTER he made it a point to glare at me in his hip fireman shirt) See, it's OKAY if they stalk me but it's NOT okay if I document it. It's okay for him to perform his manly behavior, right? Well, if it's so okay he won't mind if his mama sees his face on the WWW. She'll probably be VERY proud of him. Women actually DO these guys. WOMEN !!! Ask for MORE for yourselves. For gad's sake.
Extremely malicious behavior.
When I put tag #'s here they ARE being picked up. So put that up your hose and deal with it. All you had to do was stop.
Or throw your fucking lunch pails at me.
Which I guess you DON"T intend to do because sure as rain you'll be pulling behind me from Kirby street tonight or elsewhere. Gad.
And, that'll be five hundred for the house, the yard, the car tomorrow .... and the gate is extra.
Do you want his photo posted??? Because he's on video glaring at me, too. It's very obvious, very criminal behavior in light of the current circumstance.

I don't care what you talk about but keep sending letters until they publish one. They're very selective with WHOM they publish because I see the same names over and over. Don't let a few people speak for ALL of us.
And call your congressman and talk to her of Inherent Contempt. Do it. And hug everyone you can reach.
