Next Phase in Supporting the Petition

With less than two weeks until the inauguration, it is time for the next batch of work in support of The Citizens Petition. One that will take a fair amount of ‘grunt work’ and toil. But of course, many hands make light work!

The next phase, as I see it, is assembling ‘the case.’ What I have in mind is along the lines of a timeline of the major Bushco crimes, for presentation along with the petition…..and to use as a platform for promoting the petition on the blogs. Spelling out in as plain and concise….and frankly in as shocking a fashion, as we can.

From Cheney’s “Energy Commission” on…the truth is out there! Let’s do the best job we can in getting it all in one place in an easy to digest form.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to dump links here and in the essays to come. News stories, congressional reports, even anecdotes that document the crimes of Dick and George and their merry minions. I (and any one who wishes to volunteer!) will then go through them and try to assemble them in some kind of order and presentation that will be damning enough to get attention. The results will then be open to changes etc. just like the petition.

This will be in effect the appendix that we talked about when we were working on the petition proper. So search your memories, your bookmarks and teh google and see what you can come up with. And of course ALL ideas and input are welcome, both on this phase and any other ways to support and circulate the petition. We have given folks time for a breather so as not to become annoying spammers in support of the petition, but now it is time for the next Big Push, just before the inauguration frenzy. Once that has died down…and Holder has been confirmed (we might want to work a bit on supporting that as well, lol, considering that the Repubs seem to be shaking in their boots at the thought of accountability) we can make a fuss about presenting the petition.

Thanks in advance for the effort!

  2. … to Dennis Kucinich’s charges for impeachment, with links to all the supporting documents for the charges.

  3. any and all war crimes of the Bush administration, or focus on torture?

    I’d suggest the later since that’s what the petition focused on.

    Where’d you come up with that? Is there a guillotine scene in part 2? 😉

    Except what we didn’t find out about until later.  These are a good starting point though for picking things out.

    War timelines:

    That post 9/11 myth has been repeated so often that it’s become “common wisdom”. The warrantless wiretapping started about four weeks after Bush was sworn in in 2001.

    Noam Chomsky is so right when he says we are all brain-washed.

  5. … in blogging was the Plame case.  For me that’s where it started, even tho I know crimes were being committed right from the beginning of Bush’s selection.

    That’s a crime of the highest order.

  6. Buhdy just keeps wantin’ and wantin’!  O.K., buhdy, I’m not serious!  🙂

    Have a suggestion in terms of setting up this NEW project.  

    1.  I think setting it up in table form, with captions for each column.   9/11    Patriot Act    Waging War & Way

    Well, not necessarily those categories — those are just examples.

    But the point is if a number of people are working on the project, they could simply throw whatever they find into the appropriate category, such as Torture.  This way, everything that belongs together winds up together — thereafter, duplicates would be easy to eliminate, and entries could then be streamlined.  Depending on the number of categories, it could be broken up into sections.  This section containing x, y and z, the other containing a, b and c, etc.  

    Just initial thinking!
