The Case for Impeachment: The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush from Office

This is well worth the 1 1/2 hours it takes to listen to it. Amazing

Dave Lindorff and Barbara Olshansky are co-authors of "The Case for
Impeachment: The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush
from Office. At a symposium held at Robin's Bookstore in Philadelphia,
the authors argue that President Bush's administration threatens basic
freedoms and the American system of checks and balances. The co-authors
review several of what they consider impeachable actions by President
Bush, including lying to Congress about the need to invade Iraq for
possession of weapons of mass destruction, refusing to cooperate with
the congressional 9/11 Commission probes, and obstructing justice in
protecting the person responsible for revealing that former Ambassodor
Joseph Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, was an undercover CIA operative.
The authors suggest that impeachment should be a key issue this election
year and impeachment legislation should be submitted to the next House
Judiciary Committee.

Rights mean nothing if you don't know them

This is a very informative video on what to do if you are pulled over, questioned on the street or have the police show up at your home. It is not only the guilty that need their rights respected. Civil rights apply to all of us. Narrated by retired ACLU director Ira Glasser.

TerrorStorm by Alex Jones

A very compelling description of how 9/11 was an inside job. The full size Google video is here.

Why are you afraid of terrorists?

When I was 10 years old the old folks (parents) around me were digging bomb shelters in their back yards. The Cold War threatened every one of us with the risk of instant nuclear annihilation. Today I hear we should live in fear of 11 guys with box cutters possibly crashing an airplane into an office building I don't work in.

What's wrong with this picture? Should we give up the civil liberties that so many of our predecessors have died for in the light of this seemingly trivial threat? What form of cowardice allows us to believe that an attack on America is a bigger problem today then it was 10 or 20 years ago?

Comments are welcome, let us know why you are feeling threatened.
