Cowards or Pigs
Mark A. Goldman                                                                       Dated:  1/9/06


It is clear that the Democrats are conspiring to sit on their hands until and unless they are able to regain majorities in the House and/or Senate… a total abdication of responsibility and the height of cowardice. 

They are unwilling to fight unless they know they can win. If they had any guts they would file articles of impeachment and if they can't prevail they should shut the government down completely until these criminals are removed from office either by way of impeachment or by running out the clock.

The Bush Cabal should have been shown the door a long time ago. These people are criminals. Anyone who is paying any attention at all can see that they are destroying the Constitution and the fabric of our society. They are guilty of national and international crimes not to say anything about their absolute incompetence in every aspect of governance except one: their ability to hold onto power. All they know how to do is fan the flames of fear, claiming that they alone can eliminate its source. The only problem is... they are the source. 

In all likelihood, Bush was never legitimately elected to office and never had the right to make any of the appointments or decisions he's made so far. And the Democratic clowns in DC want to give him another 11 months to continue the carnage. Not one member of Congress even has the courage to say that Bush deserves to be impeached. 

This government should be shut down. Every day it is in session it does more harm than good. Every day innocent people at home and abroad are being impoverished, maimed, tortured, humiliated or killed because of the treasonous criminals who occupy the White House, the Senate, and the House. 

Bush is a despot and our only strategy so far has been appeasement. We tried that with Hitler. It doesn't work. And a Human Rights award won't make a hero out of a politician. All it will do is give him something to hide behind. He'll point to it to prove how worthy he is.

We are our own undoing. The Democrats and Republicans all know that we are afraid of voting for anyone who is not a Democrat or a Republican. All Democrats have to do is nothing, or maybe look like they're doing something, since doing nothing or pretending to do something will always appear to be better than the degenerate alternative. And the Republicans know the Democrats are cowards. Cowards or Pigs… take your choice.  What a choice!

Bush and his "base" are at war with America, its Constitution, and every sovereign nation on Earth. They're not going to succeed. But every day we allow them to try, they pollute our consciousness with more injustice, deface our dignity, and mock our humanity. 

Doesn't make you proud to salute the flag.  And it's a disgrace that we still ask our children to.
