* Activism

Veterans' 25 x 17 banner tells it straight to Obama at 555 PA Ave. NW, Washington, D.C.

Today at 1:00pm eastern time, U.S. military veterans hung an enormous banner on the front of the Newseum, wrapping their message around the First Amendment chiseled in five stories of limestone.

Opposed to the wars and occupations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Palestine, the vets' message said loud and clear: "MR. OBAMA: END THESE FUCKING WARS! WAR IS THE OBSCENITY."

Obama Worse Than Bush 01.Oct.2010 14:20

So Where's the Support for Impeachment from "progressives"?

First, because Obama has claimed the right
to assassinate American citizens whom
he suspects of "terrorism," merely on the
grounds of his own suspicion or that of the
CIA, something Bush never claimed publicly.

Second, Obama says that the government
can detain you indefinitely, even if
you have been exonerated in a trial, and
he has publicly floated the idea of "preventive
detention."

Third, the Obama administration,
in expanding the use of unmanned
drone attacks, argues that the U.S. has
the authority under international law
to use extrajudicial killing in sovereign
countries with which it is not at war.

Such measures by Bush were widely
considered by liberals and progressives to
be outrages and were roundly, and correctly,
protested. But those acts which may
have been construed (wishfully or not) as
anomalies under the Bush regime have
now been consecrated into "standard
operating procedure" by Obama, who
claims, as did Bush, executive privilege
and state secrecy in defending the crime of
aggressive war.

Unsurprisingly the Obama administration
has refused to prosecute any members
of the Bush regime who are responsible
for war crimes, including some who
admitted to waterboarding and other forms
of torture, thereby making their actions acceptable
for him or any future president.

So Why Should Only Republicans be Impeached? 01.Oct.2010 15:09

Remember the last ten years? There was no impeachment, justice or accountability for War Criminals/Treason. We were taken into a "profit driven" war for oil by power/money hungry, greedy murderous thugs $$$$$. War that was based on nothing but never ending LIES from the beginning. And now here we are.


Truth is always the first casualty of war. Never ending lies lead to never ending war.


There is no "justice", only---> Just Us.
