What I’m Listening to

A co-worker told me to watch last Friday’s edition of Bill Moyer’s Journal on PBS. The show was all about impeachment, specifically, how important it is that we impeach President Bush right now. That if we don’t do it we are setting a precedent for future presidents. When I went to the website I found I could subscribe to a weekly podcast of his program. And I did just that. And I listened to the “Tough Talk on Impeachment” show that was on last Friday. Can I just say? You need to watch or listen to this. It’s very interesting. It’s not just some crazy liberals sitting around saying that we need to impeach Bush (me, for example). One of the guys that is interviewed is Bruce Fein, the man who wrote the first article of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, and the man who wrote a more recent article for Slate calling for the impeachment of Cheney. There are some VERY interesting points made in this program. You should seriously watch this .

And while you are there, watch “Buying the war.” It’s about how the mainstream media failed to do their job in the lead-up to the Iraq War. Can we impeach them, too? Just asking.

The Podcast can be found the usual way, search the iTunes store for “Bill Moyers” and it will come right up. It’s free and you can download the archives, as well.

Don’t believe it

When the president shows up in New Orleans a year later, hugging Mayor Nagin, who publically cried and demanded that the federal government “get their asses down here” to help, don’t believe it. When some rich guy drives a fake FEMA truck to D.C. saying that he “wants Bush to be president four more years” (can you say Shill?) don’t think that the President cares. Because he doesn’t.

You need look no farther than the fact that it took SEVERAL DAYS for him to even respond to the devestation. And then he FLEW OVER IT.

It is pitiful. I am still so pissed about this. I will be mad about it forever. Bush is despicable.

Want a little bit of a laugh (or a gag, depending)? read the Harriet and George letters at The Smoking Gun. I could only get through about 6 of them before I had to look away. ugh! Talk about major ass-kissing. Thanks Dianne!

My hubby also sent me this link today, with the comment, “Harriet Myers is a freaking Evangelical Christian!”

I am upset about her being an evangelical christian, too. why? because I used to be one and I know the extent to which they wear thier religion on thier sleeve. I don’t mind somebody being a Christian. I mean, I still am one, I guess. (although I’ve kind of grown weary of the Focus on the Family, neo-christian types). But I am really against those who think everyone needs to believe what they believe. And that is the nature of the Evangelical Christian belief. They have been called to enthusiastically and ardently spread the Word of God. So, it kind of bothers me that we could have somebody on the Supreme Court who is also an evagelical Christian. It just seems to me that her beliefs could get in the way of making rational descisions.

oh, and my hubby also sent me this interesting link, too.

So, to put this in context, Bush is doing a “heck of a job” which translates to “complete and utter failure.” Why? because that is how Bush described the job of Micheal D. Brown, “Brownie, your doing a heck of a job!”.

Isn’t American English interesting?
