Impeach Obama? 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!

Tax Revolt n the Declaration of Independence, our fore-parents listed the train of abuses that King "George" III (the king of Great Britain at the time) perpetrated on the American colonies. The differences between our "Mad King George," and the one that reigned over these states, 232 years ago are slim. Before my son, Casey, was killed in Iraq, I was like these Americans. I dutifully obeyed stupid laws and paid my taxes...

US Bringing World to the Brink of Nuclear War The U.S. has long invaded and provoked weaker countries like Afghanistan and Iraq which have little hope of retaliating but nonetheless use what resources they have to fight off U.S. imperialism. However, provoking Russia in places like Syria and Ukraine seems to be the height of arrogance and stupidity on the part of the U.S.

Peace is not an absence of war: it's an absence of preparing for war or an absence of using violence... Today is the 67th anniversary of the "day that will live in infamy." Likely, if you were alive 67 years ago, you were a very young person. I know a few people who can still remember when the Japanese attacked a US naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, but I remember the stories that my parents told me about that day.

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.

All Power to the People In true populist fashion an election revolution must begin in this country. We must not "waste"- our votes on candidates because of the "lesser of two evils"- illogic. Voting for the LOTE is like saying to oneself: Should I vote for Satan or Beelzebub? Voting for a 3rd party or Independent candidate that reflects your values not only allows you to hold your head high, but sends a message to the corrupt duopoly of Dems and Reps

Money Trumps Peace...Sometimes "Money trumps peace" should be the rallying call of all the Democrats and Republicans who are exploiting our tired and wounded soldiers in the field to justify handing BushCo more money to complete his mission of totally decimating the Middle East for the oil companies, construction contractors, and defense industries.

The Fierce Urgency of Now Today as we commemorate the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, we must also acknowledge the violence of his death at the hands of the machine that has only grown more powerful and rapacious over the years. We must also acknowledge the violence of the inconceivable racism here in America that recently raised its demented head in such places as Jena, LA, New Orleans and my own backyard: Bayview-Hunter's Point, SF, CA.

Ask Not What... The only reason that our military is under such a great burden is because politicians like Barack Obama have voted consistently for billions of wasted dollars to continue BushCo's abominable occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead of increasing the Pentagon's already bloated budget, a true peace candidate would be calling for immediate withdrawal of forces from these countries so our military can begin the healing process

Stains Today on the 6th anniversary of the opening of a black stain on the soul of America, Guantanamo Bay prison. I was going to write about the necessity of the base being closed and the prisoners charged, tried, or released, but another stain has been nagging at me today. The hidden stain of female members of the military being abused by fellow soldiers, Marines, or sailors is one that is regularly ignored or glossed over...

Mother's Day 2008; Peaceful Idealism v. Political Pragmatism Some women have lost their only child to the ravenous war machine and they somehow go on. One specific mother has her family intact and can callously sign blank checks to pay for war (that are really nothing but death warrants for other people's children) with only the life and health of her political party in her heart. Another mother can talk about "obliterating" an entire innocent country filled with mothers and children

Cindy Sheehan: Open Letter to Reps Pelosi and Conyers; We the People are Setting the Table Now We the people are shocked that you two are already stridently saying over and over again that impeachment is "off the table." Since the historic Nov. 7th elections, I have talked to a boat-load of Americans who want impeachment on the table. We activists worked hard to make these elections about national issues, like the illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq, and the culture of corruption...

A New Direction to Disaster A response to Karl Rove's Wall Street Journal Op-ed and the Dem Congress' Iraq policy; In Karl's diatribe against the failed 110th Congress he makes all kinds of misleading and scurrilous claims about Congress. I NEVER thought I would agree with the Master of Sleaze about anything, but taking no joy in my agreement or conclusions, I do agree that the 110th is pretty pitiful, but for obvious different reasons.

Hey George I came across the below exchange that you had with Matt Lauer on the Today Show. I would like to respond to you as an American.

Cindy Sheehan: Another Open Letter to George I hope you realize that your demented policies and miserably failed leadership style is responsible for the thumping that your party took this week. Even though I couldn't be a secret first hand witness to your political demise, it was good to be in front of your soon-to-be-vacated premises in DC.

Me, Hugo and George "While the world seems to be coming apart at the seams, it is also important for our mainstream, corporate-owned media to get their facts straight and report the news truthfully and with integrity instead of being tools for war and greed... George Bush is an out-of-control criminal who needs to be impeached for his lies, removed from office for his transgressions, and imprisoned for his crimes against humanity."

Breakfast with Dennis Kucinich Dennis gets the fact that Nov. 7th was a peaceful overthrow of war-time politics as usual. He realizes that America did not turn out in flocks to vote for the Democrats, because the Democrats have no clear, and yes, even, very confused platforms and polices, but Americans voted for a new direction in this country, especially a direction that leads us out of Iraq.

Military Tribunals and You Madam Justice's fabled scales are heavily weighted to benefit the wealthy or the established ruling class. Ask any person of color or poor citizen here how the American justice system works for them. There is no place for secrecy or suppression of dissent in any free, open or democratic society. In allowing these military tribunals to continue the very cornerstone of human rights is being shattered.

Women's Issues All people who are in the human category deserve the rights to: good paying (union) jobs; a living, not minimum, wage; healthy food; clean water; warm shelter; health insurance; and good and accessible (for all) education. All people have the fundamental human rights to live in environments that are also healthy and free from war and violence or to marry or partner with whomever they choose as consenting adults.

Come Together, Right Now! Now after nearly 5 years of the illegal occupation of Iraq and over 5 years of the immoral occupation of Afghanistan, we all know, even those who watch the propaganda news networks and are in denial, that this war is not only gone horribly wrong from day one, but is a sham based on deceit.
