B) A precedent is set for future presidents to believe that they, too, can literally get away with murder if the current Congress does not put a “check” on the Executive Branch’s run-away power-grabbing.

C) The country already is divided just by virtue of Bush and Cheney’s presence in office. Professionally-conducted hearings done in a fair and balanced way will avert the nation-wide division of the people. (And so will their stopping the passage of S. 1959, which itself is a legislative attempt to divide the country. Lt's call the Representatives on their act when claiming to be concerned about the division in the country!)

D) Last but not least, please remind the Congress members that we pay them taxes to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution: They work for us, not the other way around!

 As for Nancy Pelosi, I suggest to send her a get-well card written "To the US Constitution in care of Nancy Pelosi" and wish the Constitution a get-well message. Nancy Pelosi herself perhaps may respond to a card saying "We're thinking of you.... and hoping you are putting impeachment back on the table". Or "we're thinking of you...and hoping you will reconsider your decision to obstruct justice. Put impeachment on the table".

Perhaps obstruction of justice is a good talking point, wherever any Congressperson is blocking impeachment.

I suspect that Congress is putting a lid on impeachment because they are scared that their own complicity in many crimes to be uncovered by impeachment hearings will come to public light. Their votes to undermine our civil liberties are no small part in this "game". But of course it's their responsibility too if it comes back to haunt them. What the solution is to their dodging and covering up their act is an unknown to me: Any suggestions readers may have, please post them below! (Except, of course, "obstruction of justice" which is a legally-binding phrase, and is really the truth).

Please write your friendly underground editors (because the mainstream has blocked this matter, and in so doing are obstructing justice: Let's get 'em for it!) and use any talking points above you find helpful. In that letter be sure to request that readers call John Conyers’s office and their U.S. Representative to weigh in about impeachment. The most important thing we ever could do to stop the wars of aggression, preserve our freedom, bring our budget back to some semblance of progress toward the goal of balance, prevent The Great Depression from revisiting us anew, get child healthcare and stop global warming is to oust the enemies of all the causes above: Cheney and Bush.

Let’s focus in on this as a matter of first priority. Our children will thank us, and frankly so will I personally. How about ten minutes a day to help impeachment along?

Thank you all and very best wishes to everyone!
