A madman has ruined our country and helped set the world on fire!!!
He has committed War Crimes, domestic crimes, and crimes against humanity. And now he is about to retire to his ranch and drink himself to death. With no meaningful consequence and setting a precedent for Presidential Criminality that cannot be allowed to stand.
The Netroots helped elect Obama and give Democrats a near Supermajority (pending the outcome of the Georgia and Minnesota
pennant Senate races) and now is floundering about looking for something to coordinate on to flex it’s now even stronger muscles!!!
HELP!!! I am going through a personal transition (nearly over) and my brain is not fully functional yet, but there is IMPORTANT WORK TO BE DONE!!!
What I am going to describe below is a model of a whole hog effort. An all out push using all of our skillz and energy and creativity. We will scale back if needed, we will expand if possible!
And this is just my preliminary thoughts, I am sure to miss somethong , so please chime in. I do not want this to be my project, or even just a Docudharma project, though I certainly think we have the skillz and smarts here to do it. What I am going to roughly outline below is basically an ad campaign.
Much as with the Maddow Movement, which helped influence the network suits to give Rachel Maddow her own show, a netwide petition on What To Do With Bushco posted throughout the blogosphere and at Change.gov, as well as being sent to prominent and influential decision makers, WILL influence how the new Attorney General and the Obama Administration deals with the criminals and conspirators that have occupied the White House for the past eight years.
Whatever your personal opinion on how to approach this unique and ugly problem is, I think we can all agree that SOMETHING has to be done before we can truly move forward as a nation. To that end, let us start to discuss and prepare a draft for submission.
This is an ambitious project, if done correctly. As I say above, I am not yet fully recovered from my latest transition and in any case could not do this alone anyway. I need …………….wait for it………..HELP!!! I can tell you from my experience on the Maddow Movement that just posting at the relatively few blogs that I targeted there was a ton of work and took big chunks of time. And we need this effort to be even bigger. Many hands make light work, and there is a lot of work to be done, from assembling a succinct case against King George to coming up with a good draft to posting it far and wide. So let’s start the preliminaries now. We want this to succeed and so it must be as polished and professional as possible.
Here is what we need:
A name for the project. Not just as catchy advertising, bit also a name under which to post at the various venues we wish to reach. Buhdydhama may still have some cachet and influence at Dkos, but not elsewhere in the blogosphere. This needs to be bigger than me and very well done.
A three paragraph (approx) list of the most heinous and prosecutable crimes of George Bush and his horrible henchbeasts with links to further in depth info. Short and sweet but with plenty o punch!
A heartfelt poignant plea/argument for action. Again short and pithy.
Graphics! Headers, logos, illustrations, graphs etc.
Assembly and presentation into an easily “transportable” document that can work on every web platform and application.
Coordination and outreach. We will want at a minimum for other blogs to post a logo or graphic directing folks to the petition on a relatively long term basis. That means contacting and coordinating with them. Especially if you know other blog owners who would be willing to at least give us space, please speak up! Should we also think about coordinating with folks like After Downing St. and [Ralph Lopez? https://www.docudharma.com/show…
A list of such blogs and venues, and volunteers to post and monitor at those blogs. A list of influential people and how to reach them.
And finally…if we really want to do this right….money for advertising the petition.
Ok, so I woke up and started writing about this…even as I have written, lol, it has gone through changes. It is time to publish and see what you guys think. The first hurdle of course, is what to ask for A Truth Commission? Impeachment? The Hague? We need phrasing that covers all possibilities….imo, we are basically asking for justice, not a specific outcome. But as always it is up to US. Ain’t nobody else gonna do it!
Pardon the scattered nature of this piece pleeeeze! My mind is aswirl with the infinite possibiltities and happentracks and such now that it has been invaded by the idea, iow…..HELP!!!
