It has finally broken into public acknowledgement that Bush has been using our taxpayer money illegally to spread his lies and propaganda and to enrich his family and corporate backers. This proves what we have been saying- that mainstream media prints and broadcasts propaganda, not news, and certainly not the truth. http://www.sacobserver.com/government/011305/armstrong_williams.shtml He did it to foist his erroneously-named "No Child Left Behind" bill which should have been named "No Bush Left Behind" which is defrauding the public education system out of much-needed funds www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=04/03/12/1534244 and he is doing it again to hijack Social Security. Read about it in the following articles: www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A2304-2005Jan11?language=printer Ask Congress and the FCC to investigate and stop these abuses: http://www.freepress.net/action/petition.php?n=payolapunditry This is the type of scum-ball propagandist they hire http://www.bluelemur.com/index.php?p=536
Social Security can be considered one of the major hallmarks of progressivism : It turned what was formerly almost sure poverty for millions of aging Americans into a secure retirement. But George W. Bush's plan would remove that security, throw seniors' retirement to the stock market, and bring in a windfall for Wall Street. The good news is that not everyone in Congress—including some Republicans—is on board with the plan . That's why it's so important to tell your elected officials now that you don't want to see Social Security privatized. Whether you act with MoveOn or with the AFL-CIO, make sure you act now!

George W. Bush is going to be taking one pledge on January 20. The rest of us can take another one: to make sure that we actively protect Americans' freedoms and civil liberties, despite what our government might do to chip away at them. The ACLU's Freedom Pledge is a simple statement that you're committed to values of freedom and will work with like-minded individuals to protect them. The goal is 100,000 signatures by Inauguration Day and ultimately 400,000. ACT NOW http://www.aclu.org/refusetosurrender/?orgid=EA111704A/
Here's a slew of Bush assaults to protest! Please sign their letters of protest: http://www.nomandate.org/action/

Kentucky Senate thumbs its nose at the Kentucky Constitution and its court system! Dana Seum Stephenson did not meet the constitutional qualifications to run for the office of senator in her state; however, today she was sworn in as the newest member of the Kentucky State Senate. A judge had already ruled that Stephenson did not meet the state's residency requirements—she has not lived in Kentucky for the required six years. Yet Senate Republicans quickly swore her in and hung her engraved brass nameplate as a show of their power.
Democrats protested the decision to seat Stephenson. Democratic Senate floor leader Ed Worley said "I refuse to participate in what I believe to be the greatest single act of pure, raw, ugly politics as I have ever seen take place in our Capitol."
Even non-Democrat members of the senate were disgusted by the decision—Republican Sen. Bob Leeper threatened to resign over the debacle. Virginia Woodward has challenged the validity of this senate vote and asked the Franklin County Circuit Court to stop Stephenson from undertaking any senatorial duties. The court will hold a hearing on Monday.
Sen. Bob Leeper said he will register as an independent later this week, becoming the lone independent in the General Assembly and the first since 1984. Later, in a telephone interview, he acknowledged there could be political retribution from Republicans, perhaps in terms of lost committee assignments. The 2005 legislative session resumes on Feb. 1 and is scheduled to end March 22. Support Senator Leeper for refusing to follow in the corrupt and unconstitutional actions in Kentucky! Send letters to the Kentucky reps and to Kentucky and national media about the illegal actions of the Republican party. You can thank State Senator Bob Leeper for standing strong for the constitution and for ethical conduct at his email email@example.com You can give the rightful winner your support. Visit her website for details and support http://virginiawoodward.com/ Kentucky activists, please submit supporting opinions to your local media and vote NO to Repub-driven request for another vote at http://www.fox41.com/
The 2004 Election fight is not over. Continue to visit www.votecobb.org for action items to keep pushing to investigate and prosecute the guilty. Also continue to check the Democratic mindset for positive changes at: http://www.democrats.org
This is CRITICAL. Continue to send information about the shortcomings of electronic voting machines and the evidence of Election 2004 fraud to as many of our Congressmen as possible. We must continue to expand our base of in-the-know Congressmen so they know that this election was stolen and that many criminal activities were used to install Bush into power. They perhaps do not know so we must make it easy for them to know. We must also point them at the news suppressed by the media. Do this at least for your own 2 Senators and Representative and also for your State legislatures. This will send the message that WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY and WE WON'T GET OVER IT!

Honorable Senator xxx,
There have been thousands of irregularities, including intimidation in the 2004 Election and citizens want to know why nothing is being done to investigate.
Please join the chorus of voices demanding a recount or revote so that American
citizens can feel as secure as the Ukrainians that our voices are heard in this country too.
Please read the following formal document that details some of the documented problems.
Here is the link to the document: http://www.house.gov/judiciary_democrats/ohblackwellltr12204.pdf

Republican Ohio Secretary of State and mass media both desperate to hide the truth:
"TV Networks Officially Refuse to Release Exit Poll Raw Data; Mainstream media finally displays true colors" December 22, 2004
"Ohio GOP election officials ducking subpoenas as Kerry enters stolen vote fray"
December 28, 2004
Bush adminstration collusion with the media to broadcast and print propaganda instead of truth: http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/ballot_scamming.html
Real news and truth may be found at www.truthout.org , http://www.onlinejournal.com/
Please tell me how you intend to get these outrageous crimes prosecuted.
I trust you agree that electors and candidates should be chosen by voters and not by partisan secretaries of state or by corporate software companies and their technicians.
Join President Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Richard Lugar, Sen Biden, and Speaker of the House Hastert in calling for a fair, free election without intimidation. The people in a democracy have the right to be heard and their votes accurately counted at the ballot box.
Bush: "There's just a lot of allegations of vote fraud that place their elections, the validity of their elections, in doubt... The position of our government is that the will of the people must be known and heard....These elections ought to be open and fair....The only good deal is one that's verifiable…Any election in any country must reflect the will of the people."
White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan told reporters the Bush administration is calling on [Ukraine] to conduct a review of the election and not to certify the results until investigations of fraud are resolved.
Powell: "We cannot accept this result as legitimate because it does not meet international standards
and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse. ... We call for a full review of the conduct of the election and the tallying of election results….
...It is time for Ukrainian leaders to decide whether they are on the side of democracy or not,
whether they respect the will of the people or not."
Lugar called for a new vote because of "wholesale fraud and abuse...This is really hardball, and it
was systematic… It is now apparent that a concerted and forceful program of election day fraud and
abuse was enacted with either the leadership or cooperation of governmental authorities.
So ultimately a second vote but only if you have reform."
Biden: "Ukraine's leaders should immediately invalidate the election results, invite an independent
commission to investigate the numerous reports of fraud and protect all peaceful demonstrators."
Hastert: “In order for democracy to flourish, citizens must be able to exercise their votes freely,
fairly, and without intimidation. Hopefully, Ukraine’s election in three weeks won’t experience the
rampant voting problems, reports of fraud, and allegations of campaign corruption that marred last
Ukrainians have the right to be heard and their votes accurately counted at the ballot box.”
If ours is a democracy too, then the following statement should be backed by these same people:
Americans have the right to be heard and their votes accurately counted at the ballot box.
I demand that my vote count and that the votes of my fellow citizens count IN THE 2004 ELECTION.
Please add your name, your support, your signature to our cause - that electoral votes obtained through unlawful means or through fraudulent or criminal deeds be challenged and declared invalid.
I request that you add your name to Rep. Conyers' request for a GAO investigation and that you join with the House Democrats to challenge and contest the electoral votes for President and Vice President of the United States and for all other fraudulently- obtained positions.
And please share all of this information with your closest associates.
Sincerely from your constituent,
17. Here's a way to send a message about "morality" to both major political parties: I think they are screening the message however, because they did not accept my rant about fascism. So they want to keep it "sanitized" I guess. Still, the more the better. http://www.care2.com/go/z/19623
18. More petitions against assaults:
19. Evangelical leader James C. Dobson is threatening six Democratic senators if they block conservative appointees to the U.S. Supreme Court! Tell this SOB preacher where to go and give support to our 6 Democratic Senators he threatened: Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mark Dayton of Minnesota, Robert Byrd of West Virginia, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico and Bill Nelson of Florida. We should start digging up the dirt on Dobson. Send it to the media. http://www.democrats.org/media/index.html will get you your local media.
20. Here is an excellent way to get the truth out to the masses! Not my idea, just passing it on…Write the url www.boycott-republicans.com on your $1, $5 and $10 dollar bills. To get people to look at the truth, my favorite is www.truthout.org
21. Greg Palast www.gregpalast.com has been hired by Harper's!!!
And Harper's appears to not be allergic to the truth. Look at their October issue: www.harpers.org/Newsstand200410.html Keep this in mind when giving gifts to TV watchers/koolaid drinkers. If you subscribe, make it a point to let them know that you are buying because they hired Greg Palast and because they print the truth.
