I’m AMERICAN again!
Thursday November 09th 2006, 7:33 am

now the King really has the shits....


For the last 3 years, when asked, I’ve been demurely admitting to being Canadian.

In 2003, when King George took my motherland to his illegal war against Iraq, I applied for and was granted Australian citizenship. I retained my US citizenship so I could (continue) to vote against His Highness. I had lived in Australia for 7 years at the time.

Americans don’t care when asked if they are Canadian, but Canadians take great offence when asked if they are American. I’ll never be able to shed my instantly recognisable American accent, but Australians are courteous enough to first ask anyone who sounds American if they are Canadian.

Well, today, I’m able to once again hold my head up and say that yes indeed… I’m an American.

The new Democratic leadership under SPEAKER PELOSI (chew on that, Karl fuckin’ Rove…) looks like it will have the political will to begin to hold King George accountable. With control of both houses of Congress, the Dems have the votes not only to impeach but to convict the King.





…and by the way, it was grassroots activists and BLOGGERS who won this election, not the Dem Leadership Committee.

Take a moment, and help convince Nancy Pelosi to Impeach..

The day the nation demands impeachment is upon us. Sacks and sacks of mail are about to arrive in Nancy Pelosi’s office initiating impeachment via the House of Representative’s own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635).

There’s a little known and rarely used clause of the “Jefferson Manual” in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.

That’s where we come in. In addition to a House Resolution (635), or the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial. ImpeachforPeace.org has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.

You can initiate the impeachment process and simultaneously help to convince Pelosi to follow through with the process. Do-It-Yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information in the blanks (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.

I agree, I absolutely wish the US would indict Bush for war crimes. It would be fantastic if that happened to the short chap also!

While it will be great to see Howard out of office, there isn’t really much to jump up and down about regarding what might replace him.
