The "demcracy thieves" continue to do their mastery. My newest motto to things that go bump in the night against our US Constitution in the Bush/Cheney administration is, "Hey, man; they're Republican."

In others words, in the case of US Attorney General Mukasey's recent refusal to hold grand jury hearings for contempt of Congress by members of the Bush/Cheney government, we are not surprised. But...if Pelosi and the Dems cave's all-out political war at the grassroots level in America.

Already, many of us are identifying people across the nation to take the places of those in Congress up for re-election who have defied the US Constitution in the name of politics. And for way too long, too many of us have been calling for impeachment hearings against Bush/Cheney.

And our nation continues to suffer at the hands of democracy thieves! But we are not dumb, and we will not remain silent in the face of this madness:

We know that things will not immediately get better if Obama is elected president--he's the right choice, a good person, a savvy legislator and advocate for the people--but we know our country is in the biggest, swirling, hurricane we've been in since the Great Depression. And mending it, avoiding drowning in it, has become nearly, I repeat...nearly... impossible. The ship is battered and torn and listing mercilessly. Without the concerted and organized work of the people under a strong and LONG leadership of a good government, we will sink to the bottom.

I've said this before and I will say it again: NOT ON MY WATCH!

You know this already, if you're reading this, but we are drowning in this Bush/Cheney quagmire for only ONE reason: we have allowed them to continue their corrupt and illegal activities for 7-and-a-half years!

Think of it...WE LET THEM do this to us!

Well, let our response to this latest "choice" by Mukasey (aka Bush/Cheney) to ignore the US Constitution be these warning shots across the bow of that churning ocean of pain we are being sucked into day after day after day:

1) We WILL fight even stronger for immediate impeachment hearings against ALL who have been involved in this aggregious disloyalty to the people of the United States and the world. And if this is not done while the Bush administration reigns, we WILL go to The Hague after they are out of office!

2) We WILL NOT stand by and wait for "a good person" to be elected and hope that we can, then, get back our democracy.

3) We WILL FIGHT NOW to show that we will not tolerate self-righteous behavior among any leaders who ignore the will of the people, ignore the well-being of the infrastructure of the US, call a clear "recession" a "slowdown," and hide the REAL "evil-doers" in the shoreline scrub-bushes (pun intended) until someone else is in the White House.

4) We WILL have justice that is honest and real and purposeful without the ersatz Justice Department and the corrupt Mukasey, and without the cowering US Congress, if this is what they once again do in the face of this contempt!

These are "Democracy Thieves" and they must be brought down and held accountable NOW, and We, the People WILL do it if the US Congress OR the US Supreme Court will not.

We're seasick as hell, and we're not going to take it anymore!
