Out The Instigator

Call out the Instigator
Because there’s something in the air
We got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
You know it’s right!
not backing off. I tried to remove myself from the political realm of
the US, what BushCo is turning into an Evil Empire, but the blatant
audacity of George commuting Scooter’s sentence (he’s not
ruling out a full pardon —and you know he will) has dragged me
kicking and screaming back in. I can’t sit back and let this BushCo
drag our country further down into the murky quagmire of Fascism and
violence, taking the rest of the world with them!
I have sat quietly back these
past five weeks as the slaughter in Iraq sorrowfully surges along with
George’s bloody escalation—and as the philosophical opposition
to the war has soared to almost four out of every five Americans. I
have remained silent when Senator Barack Obama said that impeachment
is only reserved for “grave, grave” breeches! Well, BushCo
has created hundreds of thousands of graves dug by their lies and greed.
For cripes’ sake, George admitted to breaking the FISA Act (which
is a felony) that also breeched the 4th Amendment to our Constitution
that already prohibited illegal search and seizure. How was Bill Clinton’s
offense graver than George’s, Dick’s, or Scooter’s?
Did we ever think that the criminality and arrogance of the Nixon White
House would be eclipsed in our time with nary a “baaaah”
from the Sheeple in Congress?
George has said that America
doesn’t “do torture” when we have all seen the images
of torture from Abu Ghraib (don’t believe your lyin’ eyes)
and know that hundreds of people sold to the US Army for an immoral
bounty are incarcerated within the inhumane confines of Guantanamo Prison
which is right in our own back yard.
I have had to bite my tongue
– HARD — as the George and Dick crime cabal, (formerly known
has the executive branch) have claimed that their offices are not to
be held up to the same standards of accountability and control as any
other entity in the human race, governmental or private.
It has been recently reported
that Nancy Pelosi said that impeachment is not “worth it.”
Her faulty reasoning is that impeachment would take too much time because
they don’t have the votes. If they could “whip” their
own Democratic caucus into shape to defend and protect our Constitution
and the people of Iraq and our soldiers as they whupped, cajoled, threatened
and browbeat the caucus into attaching “non-binding” time
lines onto the last war funding bill, then impeachment would not only
be possible, but likely.
The recent commutation of
I. Scooter Libby’s sentence, however, was the straw that broke
my camel’s back of exhausted ennui. Patrick Fitzgerald is a thoughtful
and thorough prosecutor who did a heroic job of bringing at least one
of the Bush Crime Mob to justice. Even though we were all very pleased,
we knew that it was not enough and that Mr. Fitzgerald would delve deeper
into the feces infested executive branch. The lawlessness of the Bush
Administration has reached wild west proportions and the inmates definitely
have control of the US(A)sylum.
A very dear friend of mine,
Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus, is being harassed by the
Air Force for “Conduct Unbecoming an Officer and a Gentleman”
because “The Rev” fulfills his duty as an Officer and a
Gentleman honorably by protesting Iraq and the Fascist Bush Regime almost
constantly. The Rev is still in Individual Ready Reserve so the Air
Force believes it is within its parameters to pursue the charges, although
every “Officer and Gentleman(woman)” should be protesting
the atrocious mistakes in the Middle East. After The Rev’s hearing
on July 12th, (in Macon, GA) he is going to begin a “symbolic”
walk from the Reverend Martin Luther King’s grave (Atlanta, GA)
to DC — I am going to be there for him and to begin the march,
but I am not going to make it symbolic.
We are going to walk from
Atlanta, GA to Congress beginning July 13th and ending up in DC on July
23rd to send the mis-leaders back home to face the music of justice
in their own districts.
It is about time us “peasants”
(in the eyes of the Fascist Ruling Elite) march on DC with our “pitchforks”
of righteous anger and our “torches” of truth to demand
the ouster of BushCo. I have a dream of the detention centers that George
has built and filled being instead filled with Orange Clad neo-cons
If Congress won’t dig
BushCo’s political grave, it is the People’s job to do so.
Thomas Jefferson said that we need a Revolution every 20 years, or so,
to keep our Republic honest. Over 225 years have passed since our last
Revolution (if you don’t count the War Between the States) and
we are long overdue for one. Turn off your TVs, kiss your pets goodbye,
bring the kids and flock to the federal seat of corruption, or join
us on our walk there, for a People’s Accountability Movement to
be in the face of the Criminal BushCo and the Complicit Congress for
the last week of session before they go on their undeserved vacations
(why do they get vacations when the Iraqi parliamentarians don’t?)
On the eve of our first revolution:
You know it’s right!
Author’s note: Please,
I already see “Attention Whore Back.” If anyone thinks that
I am going to walk hundreds of miles in the Deep South during July for
attention, then please join us! We will be publishing our route and
plans for Accountability events along the way, within the next few days.
