A petition to take back our freedoms
I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written a real blog post, but I wanted to make sure everyone knew about this: A petition to bring articles of impeachment against the Bush administration. If you have the time, please read the articles. For those of you who don’t like to read and would rather watch something (or even listen to it), please check out these links: Hearing on Limits of Executive Power: Dennis Kucinich
If you support our troops…
I know I’m way overdue for an update, but I had to post this. I’ve also tried to stay out of the political posting this season, but I thought I’d post this. The mainstream media has done an excellent job of squelching a fine candidate: Ron Paul. Yes, he has very libertarian stands and that’s what appeals to me: he believes that the federal government should only take care of what is outlined in the constitution.
Racism on the left
This is quite funny to me. When commentators on the right make supposed racist comments, they get hammered. When cartoonists or columnists on the left make outright racist statements, they get published in the New York Times, Washington Post, and the UK Mirror. Don’t believe me? I submit to you these links: Pat Oliphant Doonesbury Danziger UK Mirror Clarification: I find this funny because of the hypocricy of people that tear into one side and not the other.
HR 467/SR 124
There’s a resolution going through the House and Senate right now regarding the genocide going on in Sudan. I would urge you to send Representative Dennis Hastert, Representative Tom DeLay, Senator Bill Frist, your congressperson and senator a message letting them know you want action on this issue. For those of you that have more time on your hands and live in the D.C. area, there is a die-in being held in Lafayette Park tomorrow (July 22) to raise awareness about the atrocities that are happening in Sudan.
The videos and pictures are horrid. I can’t think of a more apalling thing to happen during a time of war. Yet during all of this evidence against American troops, another American hostage was taken. I also have my own cartoon. Another shocking atrocity was brought to my attention today: Sudan, a nation that has not abolished slavery, has recently been appointed to the UN Human Rights Commission. Nothing says Human Rights like government sponsored ethnic cleansing.
