"Just think about it...where would we be? My Memorial Day Reflections
This is my Memorial Day reflection. Today, finds Tour de Peace, and me, in Greenville, Il...we are on a figurative downhill ride to WashedUp, DeCeit now. It's been a wonderful experience, so far, and I am including a recap in this newsletter. I won't ever say, "Happy Memorial Day," because war is nothing to celebrate, ever. Have a great day, and week. Love & Peace Cindy

War Control
(14 comments) After the recent tragedy in Sandy Hook, Ct, the predictable blather became the recycled "debate" about "gun control." However, I think the discussion needs to be around "War Control." Besides saving millions of lives, while the Pentagon just received over 600 billion of your tax dollars and needs to be shoved over the Fiscal Cliff, pushing War Control could also save OUR Social Safety Nets...

Inscrutable Icons of Liberaldom
(2 comments) If we want to have any success as movements and people, we need to realize that there are forces loyal to the Democratic Party that glom on to people and movements to steer what could be actually affective towards electoral politics, usually in favor of the Democrats on the Liberal side of the political spectrum.

Justice For Casey Sheehan And Hundreds Of Thousands Of Others
(2 comments) Did Obama just forget about the heavily fortified 104-acre US Embassy in Baghdad that employs 3,000, or the enormous US consulates in Basra and Erbil, that will eventually employ about another 3,000 people -- or the thousands of paid mercenaries that will remain after the end of this year?

Police State Much?
(7 comments) The Constitutional Lawyer turned POTUS is committing atrocities against peace, justice and human rights at a pace that Bush and Cheney only dreamed possible. If Obama can't have one of us arrested or executed on his orders, then he will gladly diagnose our principled questioning as a mental disorder.

I'm not the Deather
(6 comments) All I do know for sure is that this Empire is the Empire of Death--and to call someone who questions the fables, a "Deather" is just blatant demonization and a reactionary response to fortify the fraud.

The USA MATRIOT Act
(2 comments) Here we live in a country where the government has no legitimate right to rule over us! If the Congress can abrogate the Bill of Rights and its enumerated power (Article I, Sect 8, Clause 11) to declare war, then it has abrogated itself!

USA MATRIOT ACT
(4 comments) Sick to the death of the devious, mislabeled instrument of mass repression and tyranny, the "Patriot" Act, short for Eternal Patriarchy Act? Then why not explore the antithesis of this canard, what Cindy Sheehan calls the Matriot Act.

Once Upon a Time in the Evil Empire
(2 comments) Emperor Obama, and Emperor Bush before him, were installed in their positions by the same institutions that installed Mubarak and Karzai. The difference is, with our complicit media, many of us still firmly believe in the illusion of political "choice."

(19 comments) Arriving in London on November 5th, Guy Fawkes Day, reminded me that the robber barrons are still in power. The recent mid-term elections proved that people are tired and frightened and see the government as a disease.

Dissent in the age of Obama
(8 comments) Recently, the FBI raided the homes of at least eight anti-war/social justice activists here in the US. These raids have terrifying implications for dissent here in the US. The longer we Americans remain silent in the face of these injustices, the more they will continue to occur and escalate.

Did He Really Say That?
(4 comments) I can name a few institutions that have been made "stronger" since 9/11: The Police State and all its apparatus; the Military Industrial Complex and its tentacles: the Pentagon, the State Department, war profiteers, corporate media; Wall Street; the surviving banks; and especially the government. The rich are literally getting richer, and the poor are growing poorer.

(12 comments) Queen Nancy... You looked me right in the face in September of 2005 and with crocodile mist in your eyes (do you use Vicks Vaporub for your fake, tears like Glen Beck?) you told me that if the antiwar movement helped Democrats get elected, you would help us end the wars. You are nothing but a cold-hearted liar...

Impeach Obama?
(76 comments) Recently, I received an email from Veterans for Peace (VFP) Chapter 136 in Central Florida asking me for an endorsement of its resolution to impeach Barack Obama. First of all, I would like to commend the Central Florida chapter for its integrity and vision for peace that this resolution exhibits. In my own experience, it's not even popular to criticize Obama, let alone call for his removal from office. Kudos!

Requiem for the Antiwar Movement
(18 comments) Last week, the Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted to give Barack Obama 33 billion more dollars to prosecute two idiotic and ill-advised wars. Of course they did--it wasn't the first time since 2007 that a Democratic Congress voted to fund wars, and it won't be the last--do you all know why? BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS DON'T WANT PEACE--THEY ARE JUST ONE-HALF OF THE "WAR PARTY."

We lost a lot of time giving Obama a "chance," and thousands have lost their lives and their ways of life. ..., you can't be intellectually honest with yourself, or your own heart and support the Democratic Party.

Officially FUBAR!
(12 comments) All of this posturing and speechifying is nothing but a distraction from the fact that our economy is FUBAR, the Gulf of Mexico is FUBAR, the wars are FUBAR and Wikileaks is set to come out soon with another video of a bombing incident that killed over 100 civilians in Afghanistan and was covered up. When Obama appointed McChrystal to this job, he knew that he had already covered up the murder of Spc. Pat Tillman.

Keep the Change!
(7 comments) The “restive anti-war movement” will not do anything it thinks will compromise Democratic chances in the 2010 midterms. I have 2 questions to ask of the “restive anti-war movement.” 1) How did the people of Iraq/Afghanistan lose value as human beings when the Democrats took over power in 2007? 2) How did the people of Pakistan lose their value as humans when Obama became president at the beginning of the year?

The President Exhibits Crazy Speech Patterns
(8 comments) As I listened to clips of Obama's speech to the VFW on Aug. 17th, 2009, I was wondering if his speechwriters were on vacation and they just recycled an old Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rice speech. While the so-called left is focused on the health care debacle and is allowing the so-called right to define the debate when it should be: Medicare for all, and all for Medicare; Obama and his neocon foreign policy team are preparing...

Passing Propaganda
(4 comments) When I see the riots on the streets of Tehran (in the mainstream "news" why is it said that those people are "bravely standing up for their rights", but when people "bravely stand up for their rights" in Oakland, they're called "thugs") I am reminded of the staged media event of the pulling down of Saddam's statue early on in the sanitized and mass-marketed invasion of Iraq.

War is Unsuitable for Children: Another YouTube outrage
(1 comments) The US Military has held up to 6000 juveniles in its torture prisons in the Middle East and there has been rape and torture reported to individuals as young as 10 years old! How can any human being torture another human being, much less a child? These stories remind me of the most horrendous slasher movies, but they are not the pretend product of twisted fantasy, but are factual and mind-blowingly real.

The Day of the Dead
(5 comments) Say we assign, in an arbitrary way for purely illustrative purposes, an average height of five feet for every person killed in Iraq and then line those people up from head to toe. That gruesome line would stretch from Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon... 950 driving miles up Interstate 5. If we count the Iraqis who have been forced to flee, we would have to go back and forth between Los Angeles and Portland another four times.

More than 80 Iraqis were killed in Baghdad alone on July 9th: dozens of people just in one city on one day who would be alive if not for BushCo.
