It’s happening all over again. Iraq is pretty much a quagmire, getting worse by the day, regardless of what the talking heads on television will tell you.
But the thing that will destroy the war hawks is the net. Because you see – video can be uploaded and shared very easily.
Cindy Sheehan was recently arrested when she and a group of people tried to present a petition to the U.S. Mission to the U.N. And members of the group captured the protest and arrest on video .
I’d like to pose this open question to both U.S. Mission staff, the NYPD and more importantloy the Administration of George W. Bush.
What part of that ‘god damned piece of paper'(Dubya allegedly called the Constitution that in published remarks.) otherwise known as the United States Constitution, did you not comprehend?
I’m particularly incensed that the first amendment that allows me to post this is also being used against peaceful demonstrators. It’s all over, the blush has come off the rose. I hope we don’t see another Kent State – but maybe that is precisely what we the people need. An event perpetrated on us by our own government so heinous that we all have to stand up, including those who do the bidding of our overlords.
For those who need a refresher, the 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
But now I see where the Bush Administration and the neo-con hawks everywhere get their motivation. The 1st Amendment states only that Congress shall not make law abridging the right. But a President has full rights to do so. Maybe we do need to create a new constitutional amendment that includes all three branches of government in that statement.
