BREAK THE GLASS CEILING! VOTE FOR HILLARY!

 
NO ONE DOUBTS THAT HILLARY CLINTON IS QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! We have the opportunity for the first time to break the glass ceiling for a woman to become president of the United States!  We must take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!  Hillary Clinton is highly intelligent, has excellent credentials, possesses extensive foreign affairs knowledge and experience, has six years as a successful senator, possesses excellent campaigning and fund raising skills, has unsurpassed organizational skills, has compassion for the people, spent eight years as the most trusted counsel to a successful President, and on and on. 
 
Women especially should vote for Hillary!  Now, I like Obama; he’s energizing and exciting and he has so much to offer and his election would break another glass ceiling that I want dearly to see broken.  The problem is I don’t think the American public is ready to break that ceiling as much as I wish they were.  Five years ago I would say to my friends that I really would like to see Hillary as President but I did not want her to run because I just didn’t think she could get elected.  I didn’t think the American public was ready to vote for a woman president and if she ran Democrats would lose the office to a Republican.  Our desires to see a woman president could not be allowed to cause us to lose the election and I felt sure it would if she ran.  Now, five years later, there’s no doubt in my mind that Hillary can win the general election; there’s been an unbelievable change in the public’s willingness to vote women into office and I think they are ready to vote for a woman to be President.  Unfortunately, people will SAY they will vote for an African American for President but I don’t think they are being truthful.  There is still far too much racism in this country for an African American to actually win the general election.  I hope with all my heart that this will change as rapidly as the discrimination against a woman for president has seemed to change.  But, until it does, we must vote for the one who can win the office of President. 
 
If you are a woman and you are torn between voting for Hillary and Obama or if you have decided to vote for Obama, you need to think about whether you will ever again in your lifetime get a chance to actually see a woman elected to the highest office in this country.  There are several male candidates in addition to Obama who are qualified and deserve our votes (like Edwards and Biden).   We must choose one candidate to run against the Republicans.   
 
All of our Democratic candidates are highly qualified but only one of them can get elected AND break the glass ceiling for a woman to be President of the United States and that’s Hillary Clinton!  We may not agree with everything Hillary says; we won’t agree with everything any candidate says.  Come on women!  Don’t miss this opportunity to put a woman in the White House!  Get out and vote for Hillary and get all your friends to vote for her!  We’ve waited long enough and now we can do it if we make the effort to support Hillary when she needs us the most!  Put signs in your yards and on your vehicles, write letters to editors, donate time and money to her campaign, do whatever you can to help put a woman in the White House in 2008!

WE WANT OSAMA CAPTURED OR KILLED! DAILY CHANT!!!!

 
WE WANT OSAMA CAPTURED OR KILLED!  WHY HASN’T OSAMA BEEN CAPTURED OR KILLED?  The American people should chant this over and over and hold demonstrations until the White House gets the message that their smokescreens are not going to work anymore! 
 
Why have they not found Osama?  With all of the technology our military and CIA possesses, there is just ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE as to why they have not captured or killed him by now!  Five years! and they still have not captured or killed him!  Who do they think they are kidding!  They could locate ant number 155 in an ant hill in my back yard if they wanted to and I know they have that capability!  So, what is the real reason why they have not captured or killed him in FIVE YEARS?
 
I don’t know about you but I’ve had it with all their lies and excuses.  The American public should demand that they capture or kill him within the next three months or everyone at the While House (including Bush and Cheney), all of the top brass of the military, the CIA, the NSA, Homeland Security, etc. should resign!  Talk about incompetence!

STOP Corporations and Organizations from Using Private Information

 
Congress needs to pass legislation to prevent corporations and organizations from using an individual’s private information without the written consent of that person!  We should not have to "opt out" in order to prevent someone from using our personal and private information!  It’s OUR information and they should not be allowed to use it at their whim without our consent, dammit! 
 
Of course the powerful, well-connected PARASITES (data miners, corporations, and organizations including credit bureaus who thrive on using people’s private information) testify before congress and whine that if congress passes legislation requiring them to get consent before using people’s private information, congress will essentially be putting them out of business! 
 
Well, my response (and I would guess the majority of the American pubic’s response) to putting the parasites out of business is this:  THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN THE BUSINESS OF BUYING AND SELLING PEOPLE’S PRIVATE INFORMATION IN THE FIRST PLACE AND CONGRESS NEEDS TO PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS IMMEDIATELY!!!

WE WANT OSAMA! WE WANT OSAMA CAPTURED OR KILLED!

The truth is they are not incompetent; they know exactly where he is and they are deceiving the American people about why they have not captured or killed him  AND THE PRESS IS LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH THEIR LIES by running around after all the distraction stories the White House puts out and getting lost in all of their smokescreens! 
 
Every newspaper, magazine, TV News Program, Cable TV News program, and .com news web sites should have at the beginning of their reports EVERY DAY the question:  WHERE IS OSAMA AND WHY HAS HE NOT BEEN CAPTURED OR KILLED! until he is captured or killed! 
 
And we the people need to devote some of our time each day to holding demonstrations asking for Osama’s head until the White House realizes they have no choice but to get him!!!

Press MUST Ask WHY Cheney and Rove Outed CIA Agent! Lie Re WMDs

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press, the REAL IMPORTANCE of the story re the outing of Plame as a CIA covert operative is WHY Cheney and Rove outed her!  Their purpose was not to out a covert CIA agent; their purpose was to discredit Joe Wilson! 

They HAD TO DISCREDIT Joe Wilson because President Bush had said in his State of the Union speech that Saddam was acquiring WMDs from Niger.  Joe Wilson had reported back to the CIA, and thereby Cheney and Rove, that Saddam WAS NOT acquiring WMDs from Niger!  Chris Matthews at MSNBC is the only journalist I have heard ask this question!

Since President Bush had included the lie re WMDs in his State of the Union speech to support his war on Iraq and both Cheney and Rove had known it was a lie, they had no choice but to discredit Joe Wilson!  Also, discrediting Joe Wilson in the press created a smokescreen for them.  It kept the press from asking why they allowed a lie re WMDs to remain in the President’s State of the Union speech supporting a war on Iraq! 

THE SMOKESCREEN IS STILL WORKING!  Just listen to the coverage of the Plame case and you will seldom if ever hear anyone bring up the REASON Cheney and Rove acted as they did!  If I have learned anything about the Bush administration and Rove, it’s to always look in the direction to which they are NOT pointing! 

Rove WANTS the press to concentrate on what he feels they can’t prove—that he committed a crime by outing Plame.  I guarantee you Rove DOES NOT want the press questioning when Cheney received his copy of Wilson’s report and what actions he took as a result of the report!  Don’t believe me?  Ask Cheney, Rove, Bush, Snow, etc., when (not if) the White House received its copy of the Wilson report and what actions they took.  Guarantee you that you will get an evasive answer and then a quick smokescreen will appear! 

If the press grabs on to the question of when the White House received its copy of Wilson’s report and continues to pester them with that question, suddenly, out of nowhere, you’ll see a “new” potentially embarrassing story that will come out as a huge smokescreen and distraction.  Of course, the “new” story will not contain anything which can really get any of them prosecuted or removed from office!  But, the press will no longer be asking the question of when they received their copy of Wilson’s report and what actions they took!  ABRACADABRA!

PROOF That Cheney and Rove LIED re WMDs!

The REAL IMPORTANCE of this story is that it is PROOF that VP Cheney, Carl Rove, and others in the White House INTENTIONALLY LIED to the American public re WMDs by allowing the lie to be included in Bush’s State of the Union speech!  The lie was included in the speech to make sure the American public would support the Iraq War!  They DID NOT want the public to know what they knew–Saddam was not getting WMDs from Niger!

The following chain of events are PROOF that the White House intentionally lied to the American public re Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction to gain support for an unnecessary war on Iraq:

  • Vice President Dick Cheney triggered a CIA Weaspons of Mass Destruction investigation by asking if there was any truth to the rumors that Saddam was acquiring or attempting to acquire Weapons of Mass Destruction from Niger.
  • Valarie Plame, a covert CIA operative, recommends the CIA send her husband, Joe Wilson, to investigate the rumors.
  • Joe Wilson reports to the CIA that there is NO TRUTH to the rumors that Saddam was acquiring WMDs from Niger!
  • Since Cheney had triggered the investigation, the CIA WOULD HAVE GIVEN A COPY OF WILSON’S REPORT to VP Cheney.  THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT VP CHENEY AND CARL ROVE KNEW THAT SADDAM WAS NOT ACQUIRING WMDs FROM NIGER! 
  • VP Cheney and Carl Rove DO NOT have the LIE removed from Bush’s State of the Union speech since doing so would negatively affect American public support for Iraq war!
  • President Bush includes A LIE in his State of the Union speech that Saddam IS ACQUIRING WMDs from Niger and uses this as major reason for attacking Iraq!
  • When Joe Wilson writes a newspaper article exposing the truth that Saddam was not acquiring WMDs from Niger and VP CHENEY KNEW THE TRUTH WHEN HE ALLOWED BUSH TO LIE TO THE PUBLIC IN HIS STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH, VP Cheney and Rove are furious and do all they can to discredit Joe Wilson. 
  • In the process of trying to discredit Wilson, VP Cheney and Carl Rove knowingly out a CIA covert operative, Valerie Plame!

AND NOW, the White House is hoping the press and the American public will concentrate on the intentional outing of a CIA agent and NOT FOCUS ON THE PROOF THAT WE DID NOT NEED TO ATTACK IRAQ!  THE PROOF IS STARING US ALL IN THE FACE AND THE PRESS MUST FOCUS ON IT AND NOT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH PRE-EMPTIVELY ATTACKING IRAQ WITHOUT GOOD REASON!  They came into office with the clear intention of attacking Iraq and now that we have the proof we need, the American press must be diligent in getting that proof out to the American public!

MSNBC and Press Failing Public with 15 Second Soundbite of CIA Outing Testimony!

MSNBC provided gavel-to-gavel coverage (4 to 5 days) of the Anna Nicole Smith debacle but today is only giving a 15 second soundbite coverage of Valerie Plame’s testimony to Congress today re her outing as a CIA agent by Vice President Cheney and Carl Rove!  No wonder the public is not up in arms about such a criminal offense by the White House cronies; THE PRESS IS ONCE AGAIN NOT DOING ITS JOB of reporting important events to the people of this country! In addition to Valarie Plame being outed as a CIA covert operative, all of the CIA agents who worked with her and their families were put in danger! 
 
Valerie Plame’s husband, Joe Wilson, had reported back to the CIA and thereby the White House that Iraq was not acquiring WMDs from Africa! VP Cheney and Carl Rove in their attempt to discredit Joe Wilson outed Plame as a CIA agent! 
 
The REAL IMPORTANCE of this story is that VP Cheney, Carl Rove, and others in the White House INTENTIONALLY LIED to the American public re Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction when they knowingly allowed a lie to be included in Bush’s State of the Union speech!  The lie was included in the speech to make sure the American public would support the Iraq War!  They DID NOT want the public to know that Saddam was not getting WMDs from Niger and THEY KNEW SADDAM WAS NOT GETTING WMDs FROM NIGER! 

MSNBC IS DOING A DISSERVICE TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WHEN THEY ONLY REPORT A 15 SECOND SOUNDBITE ON THIS STORY THAT INCLUDES CRUCIAL INFORMATION ON HOW WE GOT INTO THIS UNNECESSARY WAR WITH IRAQ AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING US INTO THIS WAR!
