4. I also think this is a good question.
What good are investigations and checks and balances if you don't follow through on them?

2. Who does your hair?
What do you think of Lindsay?

What do you think of Britney?

What do you think of Paris?

and

When can we expect articles of impeachment to be drawn up against anybody?

10. Will Rove, Miers and others be charged with contempt of Congress?
Why bother to issue subpoenas when they refuse them with arrogance? How many people are allowed to declare executive privilege?

13. I agree, impeachment, but also with follow up questions that address the
usual replies, such as, not enough votes, too busy with passing legislation that bush will veto, etc. afterdowningstreet.org has a lot of background if you care to brush up.

17. What the hell happened this weekend? Why did the Dems cave again about wiretapping?
Follow it up with "We know that you are personally doing more than your part to continue the investigations and keep the pressure up on the White House, to get to the root of the crimes and Constitutional transgressions perpetuated by this adminstration, and we Thank You and praise you for that. But what the hell's going on with the rest of the Democrats in Congress?"

19. Thanks for the questions
Thanks for all the suggestions. I will check out afterdowningstreet as suggested.
Great question Karmageddon, I had already planned on asking about the democrats cave of FISA,
and what is up with them. Maybe he will shed some insight, but really what can he say. He voted the right way, as he usually does. Should be interesting. Thanks again for the questions.

20. Yes. I have a few...
1. Will he be re-issuing a subpoena for Lt. General Kensinger?
2. Will you be calling Sibel Edmonds to testify asap? If not, WHY?

Thanks for the opportunity to share my questions with you. I hope you have a informative interview with Rep. Waxman. :hi:

22. Are Dem's afraid BushCo will launch another false flag attack
against the United States if Bush doesn't get full totalitarian control of the country. Is that why they acquiesce to the destruction of the Constitution. Is that why they continue to fund an illegal war. Is that why they refuse to hold Bush and his minions accountable for their crimes. Isn't that called appeasement. Don't they know that it didn't work during WWII and won't work now? Why aren't they investigating 9/11 just to let BushCo know we know what they did on 9/11 and they won't get away with it again? Why aren't they fighting Bush's Nazi regime when it's easy, when all it takes is a vote? Do we really have to wait until WWIII when the rest of the world bands against the U.S. to be liberated?

24. Re: Ignoring a Subpoena
Shouldn't there be an automatic penalty that can be quickly imposed
for not appearing before a Committee after receiving a subpoena (e.g. Miers, Condi Rice)?

28. I'm dissappointed in some of his answers as well
And I did miss a couple of follow ups I wish I would have asked. Like wouldn't he consider lying to start a war a High Crime, or Misdemanor, but like he said, they just don't have the votes. Thank You for the feedback
