Kucinich must need our support in order to carry on during a time like this. I can't imagine how difficult (to say the least) it must be to carry on with a Congress as obstructionist as this current one is. Couple that with the death of his brother, the media black-out and the result is devastation. Kucinich surely needs to hear from the public, especially right now.
While we sit and complain bitterly about our Congress, the moves toward fascism, and all the things of which the people on this website are so aware----and I truly appreciate everyone here for it----I would like to suggest that in order to practice the solution to our problems, it would be very important to offer encouragement to the few good Congresspeople we have....
At the same time, I want to suggest that it's absolutely important that we keep our eyes (and minds) open to "Foul play," even if the coroner says otherwise. I put not a thing past two men who already have a track record of revenge: Valerie Plame is only one example. Remember the true story of a guy who talked with Cheney in a public mall, telling him that he was upset by the Iraq War? A half hour later, the guy was arrested in the mall by the Secret Service, was threatened with having his 8-year-old son put in foster care (right in front of his son, who was with him and thank goodness the mother showed up to whisk the child away before the Secret Service could). Fortunately the man was released from jail of his own recognizance, since obviously he did nothing wrong. He called the experience akin to "Tianenmen Square in America".
Then we have the Katrina victims who were abandoned to die, the wars based on lies for which we pay to have our own kids murdered for no reason, etc... ..
Can we put foul play past Bush and Cheney when Dennis Kucinich's brother just so happens to drop dead at just the moment that Kucinich is writing articles of impeachment against Bush? I would suggest not.
Why would there be foul play involved? To target a brother dearly loved by Dennis would be enough to slow Dennis's campaign and impeachment efforts in their tracks. Particularly to target a brother with a history of mental illness and one attempted bank robbery would be strategic, opening up a can of worms which would discredit Kucinich, once again. What else is new.
The fact that the brother was found face down on his apartment floor and that according to the coroner there were no signs of violence or "Foul play" means nothing. Lots of things can mimic a heart attack and leave no trace of their presence behind: What about pumping his apartment with gas? What about poisoning his water supply? Anything is possible, especially when under the Patriot Act the FBI now can enter our homes based on "an authorized investigation" without any judicial review--or even Congress's knowledge. Did Dennis's brother have a history of heart disease? This has not been mentioned by the press. They say he stopped taking his psychotropic medications all of a sudden, and while that could be true that also could be what they want us to believe....
