27. I looked through it
giving it a cursory glance - looks great but I didn't notice anything about transparancy being returned to elections by not allowing private corporations to count the votes using secret software and leaving no paper trail. Did I miss it?

I find it so much more to my thinking than KOS.

16. Me too, it has New Day in America written all over it.
I think thought that my anger and denial is moving into sadness. It's like someone died and I miss them.

5. Thanks, excellent recommendations. I hope we can keep this effort
sustained and we need a direction to go in. the step by step process I followed through this site and PDA and others has been VERY effective. We should continue this chain.

11. Yes, your blog is my new favorite. BTW, what's the best way...
...to send you a suggestion (not about the blog) that is perhaps a page long? PM from DU? An email from here? Something else? I promise not to abuse your ears, but I would like to be able to send you this via a route such that you will actually see and even open it. Thanks!

13. Research the Anthrax scare of 2001
If we can find that the White House was involved in those activities, Bush and Cheney will be legitimately gone.

17. Why did the White House go on Cipro
Why did the White House go on Cipro Beginning September 11th?
Were they psychic?


Nearly a month before the first reported outbreak, White House officials start taking the powerful antibiotic Cipro to treat anthrax. By the end of the year it will be known that the Ames strain of anthrax used in the attacks against Sens. Leahy and Daschle was produced by CIA programs coordinated through Fort Detrick, the Batelle Memorial Institute and the Dugway Proving Ground.

FBI & BUSH ADMINISTRATION SUED OVER ANTHRAX DOCUMENTS

Judicial Watch Wants to Know Why White House Went on Cipro Beginning September 11th

What Was Known and When?
(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption and abuse, said today that it has filed lawsuits against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) and the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) for those agencies failures to produce documents concerning the terrorist anthrax attacks of October 2001, under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

14. Will follow the recommendations in the kit, but in the meantime
I seriously believe we should also concentrate on impeachment. We may not survive four more years.

The impeachment site headed by Ramsey Clarke is:

19. Thx for the link. I'll pursue as many action items as possible. One more
There should be one more component of the action plan.

We need to combat disinformation.

We need to write congress about re-establishing accountability in the media. There used to be a law regarding the accuracy of claims in commercials...we should get that back.

24. I'm slow but...
...can't get inspired at this level when the last two candidates we elected never got to be president. Not asking for therapy, but having once witnessed the death of the equal rights ammendment, the efficacy of the anti-gay marriage ammendment with the (hypothetical electorate) to re-appoint Bistch, just looking for the ramp where I can get on board for constitutional ammendments as a remedy for the rape of democracy? :shrug:

26. Thanks! Just what I was looking for!
This is what I was asking on Thursday evening when I decided it was time to move forward. Thanks for all you do. I've loved you at TO for a long time, and I've sent your blog link to everyone I know so they can stay informed. I respect your point of view. You have taught me a lot.
