As some readers have noted recently, I have been using GOOGLE search as an indirect barometer to measure the buzz by which Americans and others around the globe are discussing the topic of impeachment for our infamous President George W. Bush (select) and his mentor, Vice-President (select) Richard Cheney.
Discussion on the web can take a variety of forms. They can be educational.
They can be pro, con, neutral, or just for the sake of curiosity by a variety of writers on the web, i.e. those who are just in general interested in the topic of “impeachment”.
On Monday July 23, 2007, I had reported rise of interest in the key words “Bush”, “Cheney” and “Impeachment” of 300 more results in less than ¾ of day.THE BUZZ TODAY
Today, I would like to report the total increase since that time has risen by almost 110,000 since July 22 or so when I began to keep track
At noon today (September 5, 2007), there were 2,110,000 results for these three items:
That is a continued rise of about 5.5% in less than 55 days. At that rate, results will be over 3 million some time after Christmas.INTERPRETNG THE TREND
I would like to encourage readers to discuss the meaning and meaningfulness of this barometer.
In my opinion, the barometer is far from scientific, but it implies that not enough Americans and peoples around the world are taking impeachment serious enough.
For example, since the majority of the Democratic-led Congresses are ignoring the voices of so many already calling for impeachment, I would like to recommend that in the run up to these key dates--like between September 11 and September 15--that America’s newspapers and talk shows get calls from our listeners and taken to task for not doing what is right!
Action and Voices are needed to bring the Wall of Silence down in the Halls of Government!
EXERCISE our American Rights to take law breaking presidents and vice-presidents to task for malfeasance or whatever crime-against-humanity applies!
Get the Daily Show to run at least one series of jokes about the topic , etc. !
Call your friends!
Hold a Die-In!
Write a story about how the world would be a better place if suddenly Cheney and Bush would resign!
Move forward Impeach NOW!
Get the World’s respect back by showing the world that American Democracy can, does, and will work!
