This wasn't written by me, all written by someone who goes by the name of Terrorist240x, but I thought it was worthy to share with you lot.

All this was written on a different forum, and compiled out of 4 different posts, so it might not make entire sense all the way through.
I don't know if anyone already has a topic like this, if so, I'm sorry but I don't really have time right now to check it. Anyway, here's the information, its very long.


I dislike Bush for the following reasons:


He signed the PATRIOT Act, which violates 9 out of 10 admendements of our bill of rights, while as president he is supposed to uphold the constitution. These acts essentially allow the government to spy on you without a court order or warrant, confiscate your records without such, and even detain you, try you in a military tribunal without a jury, and if they feel inclined, execute you without a court order or probable cause. Thankfully, I know of no such case where this has happened yet, although many have been detained and haven't been heard from.

He signed the Homeland Security Act, which also does the same as the above Patriot Act in regards to our constitution.

He violated Posse Commitaus which prevents the military from searching civilians, by essentially allowing them oversight of airport searches. This is illegal.

The Iraq War violated our constitution again, due to the fact that it violated international agreements. Article IV clasuse II of the constitution states "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding." Since about 10,000 Iraqi civilians and near 600 American soldiers have died as a result of combat in this illegal war.

He is allowing companies like Lockheed Martin and Boeing to price gouge the tax payer, often chaging the government 20 times more for an item than what it is worth. This is why our defense budget is so high. We could keep the same military strength EASILY on half the defense budget we have.

We need a fiscal conservative, who will do everything he can to keep this country out of deficet. Bush is the largest spender in recent history.

Bush's administration houses plenty of corruption, case in point, according to Dick Cheney's financial disclosure report, he owned over 400,000 shares in Halliburton worth millions and also recieved over $100,000 a year in deferred compensation, then proceeded to give Halliburton the no-bid contract to Iraq.

Our food supply is contaminated. The FDA allowed mad cow milk to be mixed in with other milk and shipped around the country, stating that it is safe to drink, even though a few in Britain got the disease from milk(They were vegan). Bush has no intention to have the laws requiring that cattle not be fed parts of their own dead enforced. Meaning, anything you eat or any product from a cow that use you could end up killing you. The odds are extremely rare, of course, but someone ended up buying that mad cow meat that entered our market and someone drank that milk or ate products made from it. Add to that that chickens are fed parts of dead cattle, as are pigs. Feeding herbivores meat can also cause them to develop BSE, although it's much more rare than if they were to cannabalize their own kind.

Bush lied about the WMD, and in fact, in 2001, Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice stated that Iraq was no threat and that Saddam no longer had WMDs or the capacity to make them. Both back tracked on their statements to support Bush in 2003.

The Bush administration has allowed certain teachers unions to be declared terrorist organizations.

The Bush Administration used the Homeland Security Department to bust up the dockworkers strike in 2003, threatening the strikers with terrorism charges for disrupting economic activity if they didn't get back to work.

The Bush administration has detained American citizens without a court order or a warrant. This is illegal according to the U.S. Constitution.

Donald Rumsfeld acknowledges that the Department of Defense cannot acount for more than 1/4 of what it spends. Most estimats, however, suggest that 3/4 of the money we spend on defense is unnacounted for. Since 1997, our government has not been able to account for over $3 trillion.

Bush has plenty of bonds in the U.S. treaury, meaning, when this country goes into serious debt, he's going to rake in tons of cash on the interest, thus he has a desire to push this nation into debt as far as possible.

Bush is allowing our environment to be destroyed.

In the 2000 election, between 4 and 6 million votes were illegally "dumped" acording to MIT and CalTech, and another 1.5 million were completely disenfranchised, due to people sharing the same names as convicted felons, ballot errors, ect. That's between 5.5 and 7.5 million votes that were not counted in 2000.

Bush had intellegence data stating that terrorists were soon to strike. He didn't read it, he was out vacationing in Texas. Since then, he has repeatedly tried to halt the investigation after the investigators his administration appointed are starting to point fingers at his administration.

The economy has not been "up" as reported. The numbers are being manipulated. Inflation is thus being counted as actual GDP growth, when it is not supposed to be.

We've had a net loss of over 2 million jobs, meanwhile large companies like General Motors are recording record profits.

We are running out of affordable oil, and little is being done to adress this. In fact, Bush is encouraging more oil use through tax breaks for vehicles of a curb weight over 6,000 pounds. This affects all of us, remember the fuel crisis? Well, econocrap SUCKS.

Bush is allowing the auto industry to hold back alternative fuel vehicles despite that the technology is finally here for them. He is also allowing the power industries to deregulate themselves, laxing emissions standards. The consequence? Because of air pollution, 50,000-100,000 people in America die premature deaths from various respiratory illnesses caused by it, more than terrorism, drunk driving accidents, AIDS deaths, and homicide deaths in America combined.

Bush allowed California energy companies a waiver for price gouging California electricity consumers, totalling $9 billion that energy companies ripped off of California energy consumers. This is enough money to make a significant impact on bringing the state out of debt.

Bush has allowed John Ashcroft to prosecute Greenpeace for "Sailormongering". Their crime? Protesting a shipment of mahogony wood that was illegally harvested from rainforests. They boarded the frigate carrying a banner. They commited no acts of violence. Sailormongering is a term used to describe the act of boarding prostitutes onto a ship to seduce sailors and have relations with them in exchange for money, and dates back into the 1800s. If prosecuted, Greenpeace could be shut down.

Bush's "tax cut" is now netting companies profits, meaning, many pay no taxes and RECIEVE money from the government. That comes out of our pockets.

Bush is pushing electronic voting machines that have no paper trail. They could be tampered with and no one would ever know or be able to prove it happened. Worse yet, he has allowed Diebold to withold the machine's coding from the public. This is illegal, due to the fact that these are public elections, not private ones. Add to that the fact that certain counties in California that used these machines had the majorty of their vote going to governor candidates people hardly even knew about, which statistically just couldn't happen, meaning, California was rigged. Bush allowed this.

This isn't even 1/100 of the abuses Bush has commited to this country. He is turning america into an extreme right-wing version of the USSR, a corporate police state. The deomcrats, however, are also to blame.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards voted on this bogus war.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards voted on the PATRIOT and Homeland Security Acts.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards said nothing about Bush's lies.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards are not asking about Bush stonewalling the 911 investigation.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards are not calling the Bush administration for the fact that it is manipulating statistics to make the economy look good.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards signed the "tax cut".

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards show no concern that California energy consumers got ripped off.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards show no concern that the California election was rigged with touch-screen voting machines that lack a paper trail.

Meaning, it isn't just Bush. It's nearly all of Congress. This is a definite problem.

I'm out of time right now, but if any of you want sources to all of this, I'd be more than happy to provide.

He is absolutely the WORST president we have ever had. There are so many grounds on which the constitution of the United States specifies that he should be impeached.


This is an utterly depressing topic, really. No matter who wins in 2004, the people of America still loose. We are fast becoming a dictatorship, a corporate-run one at that. That is the reality of the post modern world.

Feel free to pick my argument apart. I'll be ready to throw out plenty of sources when you do, but I just don't have the time right now.

The sad thing is that it's all about the oil. We've hit peak production. Sure, we might have 100 years of oil left, but that oil is NOT going to be cheap or affordable, and since demand keeps going up, prices are just going to continue along with it.

Securing Iraq means securing 12% of the world's oil.

Securing Iraq also means Dick Cheney gets richer once his stock reaches a certain point.

Securing Iraq also means Bush can use it as another excuse, like 911, to keep shredding our constitutional rights.

Securing Iraq also means Bush can install another puppet, like Reagan did with Saddam in the first place. Repeat the cycle all over again when the puppet screws up. Like Saddam, this man will probably kill his own people and the U.S. will always keep a blind eye until he screws up. In which case, instead of letting the UN handle it like their supposed to, we'll repeat the cycle over again, first imposing sanctions that starve the people of the nation, then bombing their infrastructure to the stone age, then we'll not allow the inspectors to do their job and claim Iraq has WMD anyway, and then kill a few thousand ourselves and spend a hell of a lot of taxpayer dollars.

Securing Iraq also means Bush can put out rigged voting machines, and people won't question their validity because he's a "war president".

Securing Iraq also means that we have an excuse to not pursue alternative fuels because we just got a big chunk of the world's oil reserves, but when peak production of Iraqi oil is achieved, we'll be screwed again.

Securing Iraq also means that it becomes a colony of the U.S., in which they supply the raw materials, we manufacture goods, and then force them to buy the goods. Remember why the revolutionary war started in America, folks?

Securing Iraq also means that Bush can use it as an excuse to harass dissenters.


I'm thoroughly disgusted with this war and even more so why other nations keep falling in line with America's government, despite that the citizens of those nations are outraged at this. I can't wait until I can finally kick the oil habit. I'll have 100% American horsepower powered by 100% American made electrons, buddy! And not one drop of blood shed to fuel my car with Foreign oil.

Why wait for Detroit? My philosophy is **** Detroit.

Okay. You want to see the sources to why I hate Bush?

I am going to again list the accusations I made against him, in bold.

He signed the PATRIOT Act which violates 9 out of 10 admendements of our bill of rights, while as president he is supposed to uphold the constitution.

First, let me list the Bill of Rights within the U.S. constitution so you have a grasp of what this act entails. Then after each violation, I will supply text from the bill.

Bill of Rights

Amendment I:Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment III:No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Amendment IV:The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment X:The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

That above is the Bill of Rights. Now, here is the proof Bush signed it into law:

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning and welcome to the White House. Today, we take an essential step in defeating terrorism, while protecting the constitutional rights of all Americans. With my signature, this law will give intelligence and law enforcement officials important new tools to fight a present danger.

The Patriot Act allows the government to wiretap your computer, put cameras anywhere in your home, tag your car, ect. ALL without a warrant. This is a violation of the 4th amendement.

The Patriot Act allows the government to classify dissenters commiting an act that 'may' be harmful to human life as terrorism. So is a protest obstructing traffic, in which there is a remote possibility an ambulance might be trying to get through in the future? Are they at the same time trying to influence the policies of their government? Now it's terrorism. Also, if you donate money or give aid to a demonstration or an organization such as Greenpeace or Amnesty International, and the government classifies them as terrorist for engaging in dissent that 'may' pose a threat to human life, you too could be detained, even if you gave them cash or help before they were classified as such. 1st amendement violation.

`(B) appear to be intended--
`(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
`(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
`(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
`(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.'.
(b) CONFORMING AMENDMENT- Section 3077(1) of title 18, United States Code, is amended to read as follows:

`(1) `act of terrorism' means an act of domestic or international terrorism as defined in section 2331;'.

The Patriot Act allows the government to detain without court order or a warrant anyone within American borders if they deem necessary. This is a violation of the 4th and 6th amendements.

The Patriot Act allows the government to confiscate your property without a warrant or court order if they classify you as terrorist, even if you were excersicing your constitutional rights and not harming anyone. This leaves open the possibility of them using it to house soldiers, since it becomes their property, even though illegally. This violates the 3rd amendement.

SEC. 806. ASSETS OF TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.
Section 981(a)(1) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting at the end the following:

`(G) All assets, foreign or domestic--
`(i) of any individual, entity, or organization engaged in planning or perpetrating any act of domestic or international terrorism (as defined in section 2331) against the United States, citizens or residents of the United States, or their property, and all assets, foreign or domestic, affording any person a source of influence over any such entity or organization;
`(ii) acquired or maintained by any person with the intent and for the purpose of supporting, planning, conducting, or concealing an act of domestic or international terrorism (as defined in section 2331) against the United States, citizens or residents of the United States, or their property; or
`(iii) derived from, involved in, or used or intended to be used to commit any act of domestic or international terrorism (as defined in section 2331) against the United States, citizens or residents of the United States, or their property.'.


The Patriot Act allows the government to try you in a military tribunal. If the offense is capital, then this violates the 5th amendement. Without a jury, then this is also a violation of the 7th amendement. The Act allows the government to force prisoners to incriminate themselves. Also, due to Bush wanting to designate people as enemy combatants without allowing them to prove their innocence, this is in direct violation of the 5th amendement.

See President Bush's Military Order in link below:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2001/11/20011113-27.html

By the authority vested in me as President and as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Authorization for Use of Military Force Joint Resolution (Public Law 107-40, 115 Stat. 224) and sections 821 and 836 of title 10, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Findings.

(a) International terrorists, including members of al Qaida, have carried out attacks on United States diplomatic and military personnel and facilities abroad and on citizens and property within the United States on a scale that has created a state of armed conflict that requires the use of the United States Armed Forces.

(b) In light of grave acts of terrorism and threats of terrorism, including the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, on the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense in the national capital region, on the World Trade Center in New York, and on civilian aircraft such as in Pennsylvania, I proclaimed a national emergency on September 14, 2001 (Proc. 7463, Declaration of National Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist Attacks).

(c) Individuals acting alone and in concert involved in international terrorism possess both the capability and the intention to undertake further terrorist attacks against the United States that, if not detected and prevented, will cause mass deaths, mass injuries, and massive destruction of property, and may place at risk the continuity of the operations of the United States Government.

(d) The ability of the United States to protect the United States and its citizens, and to help its allies and other cooperating nations protect their nations and their citizens, from such further terrorist attacks depends in significant part upon using the United States Armed Forces to identify terrorists and those who support them, to disrupt their activities, and to eliminate their ability to conduct or support such attacks.

(e) To protect the United States and its citizens, and for the effective conduct of military operations and prevention of terrorist attacks, it is necessary for individuals subject to this order pursuant to section 2 hereof to be detained, and, when tried, to be tried for violations of the laws of war and other applicable laws by military tribunals.

(f) Given the danger to the safety of the United States and the nature of international terrorism, and to the extent provided by and under this order, I find consistent with section 836 of title 10, United States Code, that it is not practicable to apply in military commissions under this order the principles of law and the rules of evidence generally recognized in the trial of criminal cases in the United States district courts.

(g) Having fully considered the magnitude of the potential deaths, injuries, and property destruction that would result from potential acts of terrorism against the United States, and the probability that such acts will occur, I have determined that an extraordinary emergency exists for national defense purposes, that this emergency constitutes an urgent and compelling govern-ment interest, and that issuance of this order is necessary to meet the emergency.

Sec. 2. Definition and Policy.

GEORGE W. BUSH

THE WHITE HOUSE,

November 13, 2001.



This act leaves no oversight for those tried in a military tribunal, leaving open the possibility of an 8th amendement violation, in the case torture or some other coercive but unconventional means is used.

`MANDATORY DETENTION OF SUSPECTED TERRORISTS; HABEAS CORPUS; JUDICIAL REVIEW
`SEC. 236A. (a) DETENTION OF TERRORIST ALIENS-

`(1) CUSTODY- The Attorney General shall take into custody any alien who is certified under paragraph (3).

(D) were released from detention.


The provisions in this act are non constitutional, and thus only the states may pass such a thing, but then again, it cannot violate the bill of rights in the U.S. constitution. Violation of 10th amenedement.

And finally, all of those above usurp your rights as a sovereign. This is a 9th amendement violation.

There it is, 9 out of 10 violated from the (un)PATRIOT(ic) Act.

Not only that, but if Bush would have got the entire PATRIOT II passed, it would have also violated our 2nd amendement. Unfortunaterly, he still managed to get most of the other provisions slipped in another bill at like 2 A.M. They expand upon the violations of our civil liberties.

For a more analysis of the Act that covers more than what I did, click on this link:

http://www.bordc.org/Repeal.pdf

He signed the Homeland Security Act, which also does the same as the above Patriot Act in regards to our constitution.

Again, I will use the same format as the PATRIOT Act.

You know that information that the government can confiscate from the PATRIOT Act? The Homeland Security Department can gather it. Again, this is in violation of my 4th amendement, dammit!

In assisting the Secretary with the responsibilities specified in
section 101(b)(2)(A), the primary responsibilities of the Under Secretary
for Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection shall include-

(1) receiving and analyzing law enforcement information,
intelligence, and other information in order to understand the nature
and scope of the terrorist threat to the American homeland and to
detect and identify potential threats of terrorism within the United
States;

(2) comprehensively assessing the vulnerabilities of the key
resources and critical infrastructures in the United States;

(3) integrating relevant information, intelligence analyses, and
vulnerability assessments (whether such information, analyses, or
assessments are provided or produced by the Department or others) to
identify protective priorities and support protective measures by the
Department, by other executive agencies, by State and local government
personnel, agencies, and authorities, by the private sector, and by
other entities;

(4) developing a comprehensive national plan for securing the
key resources and critical infrastructures in the United States;

(5) taking or seeking to effect necessary measures to protect
the key resources and critical infrastructures in the United States,
in coordination with other executive agencies and in cooperation with
State and local government personnel, agencies, and authorities, the
private sector, and other entities;

(6) administering the Homeland Security Advisory System,
exercising primary responsibility for public threat advisories, and
(in coordination with other executive agencies) providing specific
warning information to State and local government personnel, agencies,
and authorities, the private sector, other entities, and the public,
as well as advice about appropriate protective actions and
countermeasures; and

(7) reviewing, analyzing, and making recommendations for
improvements in the policies and procedures governing the sharing of
law enforcement, intelligence, and other information relating to
homeland security within the Federal government and between such
government and State and local government personnel, agencies, and
authorities.


If a business purposely doesn't protect their employees from hazards to save money, and someone happens to get hurt because of it, they can voluntarily send this information to the HSA and be granted immunity. This violates many parts of the Fair Standards Labor Act.

SEC. 204. INFORMATION VOLUNTARILY PROVIDED.

Information provided voluntarily by non-Federal entities or
individuals that relates to infrastructure vulnerabilities or other
vulnerabilities to terrorism and is or has been in the possession of the
Department shall not be subject to section 552 of title 5, United States
Code.

No one can subpoena the secretary, or the homeland Security organization, thus, if they are suspected of corruption or crime, no one can legally obtain any evidence of such unless the agency VOLUNTARILY hands the evidence over. Put it this way, when Nixon was given a subpoena by Congress to hand over the tapes, he was legally obligated to do it. He didn't, and he was going to be tried for the crime, thus he resigned. The Homeland Security Organization OR the Secretary is essentially free from any such possibility, meaning if they abuse their power, there is nothing anyone can do about it.

The secretary has access to anything a witness states AND has access to the names of confidentially protected witnesses. 5th amendement violation.

SEC. 710. AUTHORITY OF THE SECRETARY.

(a) Notwithstanding the last two sentences of section 3(a) of the
Inspector General Act of 1978, the Inspector General shall be under the
authority, direction, and control of the Secretary with respect to audits
or investigations, or the issuance of subpoenas, that require access to
information concerning-

(1) intelligence, counterintelligence, or counterterrorism
matters;

(2) ongoing criminal investigations or proceedings;

(3) undercover operations;

(4) the identity of confidential sources, including protected
witnesses;

(5) other matters the disclosure of which would, in the
Secretary's judgment, constitute a serious threat to the protection of
any person or property authorized protection by section 3056 of title
18, United States Code, section 202 of title 3 of such Code, or any
provision of the Presidential Protection Assistance Act of 1976; or

(6) other matters the disclosure of which would, in the
Secretary's judgment, constitute a serious threat to national
security.

(b) With respect to the information described in subsection (a), the
Secretary may prohibit the Inspector General from carrying out or
completing any audit or investigation, or from issuing any subpoena, after
such Inspector General has decided to initiate, carry out, or complete such
audit or investigation or to issue such subpoena, if the Secretary
determines that such prohibition is necessary to prevent the disclosure of
any information described in subsection (a), to preserve the national
security, or to prevent a significant impairment to the interests of the
United States.

(c) The Secretary shall notify the President of the Senate and the
Speaker of the House of Representatives within thirty days of any exercise
of his authority under this section.

Subtitle C-United States Secret Service

If the Homeland Security Agency or the secretary deems fit, they can legally aqcuire your property without any compensation and can withold any compensation. Guess what? You no longer have personal property or rights to it. Don't you think there is something just a little bit wrong with this?

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary, in
accordance with regulations prescribed jointly with the Administrator of
General Services and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget-

(1) may acquire replacement real property (including interests
therein)-

(A) by transfer or exchange of the Department's property
with other executive agencies; or

(B) by sale to or exchange of the Department's property
with non-Federal parties;

(2) by lease, permit, license, or other similar instrument, may
make available to other executive agencies and to non-Federal parties,
on a fair market rental value basis, the unexpired portion of any
government lease for real property occupied or possessed by the
Department;

(3) may make available by outlease agreements with other
executive agencies or with non-Federal parties, any unused or
underused portion of or interest in any real or related personal
property occupied or possessed by the Department; and

(4) may deposit the proceeds of any exercise of the authority
granted by this subsection into any account in the Treasury available
to him, without regard to fiscal year limitations.

(e) Upon the written request of the Secretary, the Administrator of
General Services shall delegate to him all responsibilities and authorities
provided by law to the Administrator for the care and handling of the
Department's surplus real and related personal property, pending its
disposition, and for the disposal of such property.

(f) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary may
retain, from the proceeds of the sale of personal property, amounts
necessary to recover, to the extent practicable, the full costs (direct and
indirect) incurred by the Secretary in disposing of such property,
including but not limited to the costs of warehousing, storage,
environmental services, advertising, appraisal, and transportation. Such
amounts shall be deposited into an account available for such expenses
without regard to fiscal year limitations.

This organization can spend as much money as necessary to carry out the "provisions" of this act. This leaves plenty of room for abuse, and since the secretary who directs this cannot be subpoened, this leaves an infinite chance for corruption and stealing of funds, and no one can do a thing about it. Also, those Health records of yours gathered with provisions in the PATRIOT Act and within Section 212 of this monstrousity, for example, could be sold to medical insurance companies and then they could trade it among each other creating a "blacklist" of people they will refuse coverage based on these records. Guess what? You have no say in it either! The same can be said for school records being sold to employers and using test scores/ grades/ permanent records to bar people from working for them. Sure, both these things have gone on for a while, but at least you could do something about it to prevent these records from being given to companies and such, but now you don't have the opportunity to keep this stuff private. Also, since they can track every website you visit and thing you type with a computer, this is the ultimate spyware. They sell that information to companies which will now flood your machine with ads and have an even greater chance of getting a sale. This is just sick. Not to mention, plenty of 5th amendement violations.

There are authorized to be appropriated such sums as may be necessary
to carry out the provisions of this Act. The Director of the Office of Management and Budget, in consultation
with the Secretary, is authorized and directed to make such additional
incidental dispositions of personnel, assets, and liabilities held, used,
arising from, available, or to be made available, in connection with the
functions transferred by this Act, as he may deem necessary to accomplish
the purposes of this Act.

This act allows the government to forcebly vaccinate people, even if the vacine isn't thoroughly tested and is experimental, and grants the company that makes the vaccine immunity if anything goes wrong. Meaning, if the vaccine you were forced to take, whether or not there was any threat, permanantly disables you or harms you in any way, you won't be able to sue the government or the company for any damages. Lets say it paralyses you, and you then can't work anymore. Too bad. You're ****ed. Again, 4th amendement AND 9th amendement violations.

SEC. 304. CONDUCT OF CERTAIN PUBLIC HEALTH-RELATED
ACTIVITIES.

These acts essentially allow the government to spy on you without a court order or warrant, confiscate your records without such, and even detain you, try you in a military tribunal without a jury, and if they feel inclined, execute you without a court order or probable cause.

Just read the rest above when I outlines our amendement violations, and you'll see what I mean with the government being allowed to detain you if they wish, and yes, execute you without a court order under certain provisions.

Also, what I didn't mention, was the Total Information Awareness program. It wasn't specifically listed in the Homeland Security Bill, but it was appropriated by provisions in the bill. It allows the government to take all of that info, log it into a database, and share it with whoever they please, even the private enterprise. Again, 4th amendement violation and it essentially kills our privacy. Of course, the media said it's been dead. That's again false. It's had two name changes. Terrorist Information Awareness. after that, Multi-State Terrorism Information Exchange, also known as MATRIX. However, MATRIX, does not affect the entire nation. It affects certain states, enough to cover over 70 million Americans, and if you count in the fact that if you travel to these certain states you will be affected, it does then affect ALL Americans. Here's some info on MATRIX:

http://www.aclu.org/Privacy/Privacy.cfm?ID=14240&c=130

And if you're unfamiliar, the TIA:

http://www.cdt.org/security/homelandsecuritydept/021210cdt.shtml

If you live in Connecticut, Florida, Michigan, New York, Ohio, or Pennsylvania, then you are constantly affected by it, and if you've travelled to any of those states, you've been likely monitored as well. Also, the states of Alabama, California, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah have been participating in it, up until scandels where the information has been repeatedly abused have been reported. But essentially, the TIA is still alive and well, thanks to Bush allowing it to happen and signing the Homeland Security Act into Law.

And again, proof Bush signed the Homeland Security Act into law:

Today, we are taking historic action to defend the United States and protect our citizens against the dangers of a new era. With my signature, this act of Congress will create a new Department of Homeland Security, ensuring that our efforts to defend this country are comprehensive and united.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/11/20021125-6.html

...although many have been detained and haven't been heard from.

Here's a mention of people illegally detained by this fascist government according to amnesty International, some immigrants, some citizens of this country, and many have trials not open to the public:

http://www.amnestyusa.org/amnestynow/ashcroftraids.html

They fall into four categories. More than 725 have been held for alleged immigration status violations; about 120 for federal crimes unrelated to September 11; an undisclosed number for state criminal charges; and a similarly undisclosed but assertedly small number as federal material witnesses, purportedly to preserve their testimony for a criminal proceeding. The Justice Department has been especially closed-mouthed about the largest group of detainees, the more than 725 people held on immigration charges. It refuses even to name them and has ordered them tried in secret, with proceedings closed to the public, the press, legal observers, and even family members.

To add insult to injury, not allowing the public or the media access to these detainees is in violation of the Geneva Conventions.

On January 11, 2002, the United States announced that it was refusing to abide by the 1949 Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners of war in its treatment and internment of those taken prisoner in Afghanistan or Pakistan by the United States. The Third Geneva Convention, which provides specific guidelines for treatment of prisoner combatants, is a part of the "law of nations" and is a mainstay of international humanitarian law. The United States explained that the prisoners were not actually prisoners of war, but were in fact "unlawful combatants."

http://www.iacenter.org/geneva_usrefuse.htm

This is illegal because it violates Article VI clause II of the Constitution, which states:

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.articlevi.html

He violated Posse Commitaus which prevents the military from searching civilians, by essentially allowing them oversight of airport searches. This is illegal.

It was violated when he had military oversee the airport searches.

The Posse Comitatus Act states simply:
Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act in 1878 to end military occupation of the defeated Southern states during the Reconstruction period. Southern Democrats had complained bitterly about the oppressive use of the military in a law enforcement role. The Act incorporates a founding American principle of keeping the nation's military forces separate from and subordinate to the "Civil Power.''

http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Civil_Liberties/Posse_Comitatus_Law.html

The Iraq War violated our constitution again, due to the fact that it violated international agreements.

The U.N. did not approve of this war, thus violating the "Uniting for Peace" Resolution. Again, the U.S. government violating an international treaty also means it's violating Article VI Clause II of the U.S. Constitution.

All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.
-- Article 2 paragraph 3

All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.
-- Article 2 paragraph 4

Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defense shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.
-- Article 51

The International Court of Justice shall be the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. It shall function in accordance with the annexed Statute, which is based upon the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice and forms and integral part of the present Charter.
-- Article 92

All Members of the United Nations are ipso facto parties to the Statute of the International Court of Justice.
-- Article 93 paragraph 1

The General Assembly or the Security Council may request the International Court of Justice to give an advisory opinion on any legal question.
-- Article 96 paragraph 1

http://www.un.org/aboutun/charter/chapter1.htm

He's also used banned weapons, such as Depleted Uranium and violated the Protocol Additional to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, and by conducting strikes in residential areas without proof of threat. Again, international treaty violated by U.S. government under Bush, thus Bush violated Article VI Clause II.

It is prohibited to employ methods or means of warfare which are intended, or may be expected, to cause widespread, long-term and severe damage to the natural environment.
-- Article 35 paragraph 3

The civilian population and individual civilians shall enjoy general protection against dangers arising from military operations.

[C]ivilians shall not be the object of attack. Acts or threats of violence the primary purpose of which is to spread terror among the civilian population are prohibited.

Indiscriminate attacks are prohibited, [including an] attack which may be expected to cause incidental loss of civilian life, injury to civilians, damage to civilian objects, or a combination thereof, which would be excessive in relation to the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated.
-- Article 51 paragraphs 1, 2, 4 and 5 (excerpts)

http://www.icrc.org/web/eng/siteeng0.nsf/iwpList277/43489F2081CC0007C1256B660059087A

And for proof the bastard used Depleted Uranium and strikes on Residential Neighborhoods without proof of threat:

BRITISH and American coalition forces are using depleted uranium (DU) shells in the war against Iraq and deliberately flouting a United Nations resolution which classifies the munitions as illegal weapons of mass destruction.

http://www.sundayherald.com/32522

In retaliation, American troops backed by Bradley fighting vehicles swept through Iraqi
neighborhoods before dawn Saturday, blasting houses suspected of being insurgent
hideouts with machine guns and heavy weapons fire.

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20031108/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq&cid

Further to note:

Bush has also violated the Treaty on the Limitation of Anti-Ballistic Missile Systems.

Each Party undertakes to limit anti-ballistic missile (ABM) systems and to adopt other measures in accordance with the provisions of this Treaty.
Each Party undertakes not to deploy ABM systems for a defense of the territory of its country and not to provide a base for such a defense, and not to deploy ABM systems for defense of an individual region except as provided for in Article III of this Treaty.
-- Article I
Each Party undertakes not to deploy ABM systems or their components except that:

within one ABM system deployment area having a radius of one hundred and fifty kilometers and centered on the Party's national capital, a Party may deploy: (1) no more than one hundred ABM launchers and no more than one hundred ABM interceptor missiles at launch sites, and (2) ABM radars within no more than six ABM radar complexes, the area of each complex being circular and having a diameter of no more than three kilometers; and
within one ABM system deployment area having radius of one hundred and fifty kilometers and containing ICBM silo launchers, a Party may deploy: (1) no more than one hundred ABM launchers and no more than one hundred ABM interceptor missiles at launch sites, (2) two large phased-array ABM radars comparable in potential to corresponding ABM radars operational or under construction on the date of signature of the Treaty in an ABM system deployment area containing ICBM silo launchers, and (3) no more than eighteen ABM radars each having a potential less than the potential of the smaller of the above-mentioned two large phased-array ABM radars.
-- Article III

Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons

Each nuclear-weapon State Party to the Treaty undertakes not to transfer to any recipient whatsoever nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices or control over such weapons or explosive devices directly, or indirectly; and not in any way to assist, encourage, or induce any non-nuclear-weapon State to manufacture or otherwise acquire nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices, or control over such weapons or explosive devices.
-- Article I

Each non-nuclear weapon State Party to the Treaty undertakes not to receive the transfer from any transferor whatsoever of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices or of control over such weapons or explosive devices directly, or indirectly; not to manufacture or otherwise acquire nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices; and not to seek or receive any assistance in the manufacture of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices.
-- Article II

Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production, and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.
-- Article V paragraph 1

Each of the Parties to the Treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control.
-- Article VI



Both of those above are violated with Bush's plan to use "mini nukes" and bunker busters. Again, another Article VI Clause II violation.

Since about 10,000 Iraqi civilians and near 600 American soldiers have died as a result of combat in this illegal war.

I just proved above that the war is and was illegal. But 10,000 Iraq civilians and almost 600 American soldiers? Yup. That's the grim reality.




The link below lists how the data was compiled and from where. These were civilians specifically killed in combat and incidents related to combat.

http://www.iraqbodycount.net/editorial_aug0703.htm

There are as of today 551 American soldiers dead in Iraq due to combat. And a link keeping toll of the number of dead American soldiers:

http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ops/iraq_casualties.htm

He is allowing companies like Lockheed Martin and Boeing to price gouge the tax payer, often chaging the government 20 times more for an item than what it is worth. This is why our defense budget is so high. We could keep the same military strength EASILY on half the defense budget we have.

One example:

The government employee, Ken Pedeleose, an industrial engineer and nine-year veteran with the federal Defense Contract Management Agency, had accused Lockheed Martin of billing the Air Force $714 for a rivet and $5,217 for a one-inch-long bracket for the C-5. Each aircraft required hundreds of the items.

The government-recommended price for the rivet is $53 and $258 for the bracket.

http://www.montereyherald.com/mld/mcherald/news/local/6548047.htm

That means 92% spent on the rivet and 95% spent on the bracket went straight to lining the company's pocket. Our tax dollars at work. Those are 8% and 5% efficiencies respectively, although that may be an extreme example. The bracket cost 20 times more than it should have, the rivet 12.5 times more. I think it's a safe bet at least half we are paying for defense spending is either wasted or lining someone's pockets.

We're getting screwed, on this war, on what we pay as taxes, and where that money goes. We are getting raped up the ass, harder and harder each year. Again, we need Bush out because he allowed this to happen.

We need a fiscal conservative, who will do everything he can to keep this country out of deficet. Bush is the largest spender in recent history.

Simply put, Bush has
turned out to be the largest spender in American history.

http://www.gold-eagle.com/editorials_03/ing082203.html

Also, I will compare the budgets between Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, and the current Bush Jr. within their respective Fiscal Years (Fiscal year means the budget the president leaves for the next year, thus, before Reagan came in in 1981, Carter had already layed out the Budget for 1981, even though after January 20th of that year, Carter was no longer president.)

President/Fiscal Year/Budget Size(Billions)

Reagan in FY 1982- $745.8
Reagan in FY 1983- $808.4
Reagan in FY 1984- $851.8
Reagan in FY 1985- $946.4
Reagan in FY 1986- $990.3
Reagan in FY 1987- $1003.9
Reagan in FY 1988- $1064.1
Reagan in FY 1989- $1144.2
Bush in FY 1990- $1252.7
Bush in FY 1991- $1323.4
Bush in FY 1992- $1380.9
Bush in FY 1993- $1408.7
Clinton in FY 1994- $1461.9
Clinton in FY 1995- $1515.8
Clinton in FY 1996- $1560.5
Clinton in FY 1997- $1601.3
Clinton in FY 1998- $1652.6
Clinton in FY 1999- $1701.9
Clinton in FY 2000- $1788.8
Clinton in FY 2001- $1863.9
Bush in FY 2002- $2011.0
Bush in FY 2003- $2140.4(estimate)

http://www.gpoaccess.gov/usbudget/fy04/pdf/hist.pdf

As you can see, Bush has made the government the largest it has ever been. His increase from Clinton's 2001 FY budget to the 2002 year Bush had full control over was almost TWICE the largest increase Clinton ever made.

Bush's administration houses plenty of corruption, case in point, according to Dick Cheney's financial disclosure report, he owned over 400,000 shares in Halliburton worth millions and also recieved over $100,000 a year in deferred compensation, then proceeded to give Halliburton the no-bid contract to Iraq.

I think this below covers that:

18-10-03 Dick Cheney is under pressure to give up pay and shares from Halliburton as controversy about the links between the oil company and the US vice president refuses to die. Opposition politicians are drafting legislation that would strip Mr Cheney of deferred salary of roughly $ 500,000 and well over 400,000 share options.
The vice president ran the energy company between 1995 and 2000 and will receive back pay every year until 2005. Critics say this gives, at the least, an appearance of a conflict of interest as Halliburton wins lucrative contracts to help rebuild Iraq.

Mr Cheney insists he has no involvement with Halliburton, telling: "I've severed all my ties with the company." Even a promise to give any gains from the stock options to charity has not satisfied opponents.
An amendment put forward by Democrats to the planned $ 87 bn Iraq spending bill would require Mr Cheney to give up all of the Halliburton money.

He was paid $ 200,000 in 2001 and $ 160,000 in 2002 in deferred compensation agreed when he left the company. He will get similar amounts for the next three years.
Mr Cheney holds 100,000 options to buy shares at $ 54.40 by the end of 2007, 300,000 to buy shares at $ 39.50 by the end of 2009 and 33,333 at $ 28.13 also by the end of 2007. Halliburton shares were priced at $ 24.09, meaning they have to rise somewhat before Mr Cheney is in the money. The vice president put his personal wealth at somewhere between $ 19 mm and $ 87 mm in a filing to the Office of Government Ethics.

Democrats have been suggesting for some time that links between the Bush administration and top corporations are not in the public interest. Halliburton, in particular, has been a target of allegations that it overcharges for contracts it seemed to win without any competition.
So far Halliburton has been paid $ 1.4 bn from a possible $ 7 bn for repairing Iraqi oilfields. The company points out it has been working for different US governments since 1919. It employs 100,000 people.


http://www.gasandoil.com/goc/company/cnn34601.htm

Our food supply is contaminated. The FDA allowed mad cow milk to be mixed in with other milk and shipped around the country, stating that it is safe to drink, even though a few in Britain got the disease from milk(They were vegan). Bush has no intention to have the laws requiring that cattle not be fed parts of their own dead enforced. Meaning, anything you eat or any product from a cow that use you could end up killing you. The odds are extremely rare, of course, but someone ended up buying that mad cow meat that entered our market and someone drank that milk or ate products made from it. Add to that that chickens are fed parts of dead cattle, as are pigs. Feeding herbivores meat can also cause them to develop BSE, although it's much more rare than if they were to cannabalize their own kind.

Or course, meat from the cow did enter our food supply:

After diseased tissue was removed, the cow's meat entered the food supply, but Veneman said Americans should not be concerned about the safety of beef. She added that she intended to serve beef for Christmas dinner.

However, the USDA doesn't seem to mention the methods used to slaughter the cattle and strip the spinal cord. A saw is used to split the spine before it is removed. This aerosolizes the infected tissue. Meaning, it turned the affected nerve tissue into a vapor and that spread to other meat. If your body absorbs just one of those proteins and begins to actually replicate just one, then you're royally ****ed.

Also, the FDA said milk from the mad cow is safe to drink, and it has entered our food supply:

Washington (Reuters) - WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Milk from the Washington state dairy cow infected with mad cow disease is safe to drink, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday.

Of course, that milk isn't safe to drink.

"A 24-year-old vegetarian has been diagnosed with Cruetzfeld-Jacob disease. Scientists fear that milk and cheese may be the source of infection."

London Times, August 23, 1997 Michael Hornsby

http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/opinions/articles/0103satlets033.html

Rendered cattle are still often fed to other animals:

However, two major concerns remain. FDA inspections indicate that many feed producers are not fully complying with the new rules, and the FDA has not yet imposed fines or sanctions. Also, loopholes remain in the FDA rules.

For example, non-ruminant animals, such as pigs and chickens, are still fed the rendered remains of cattle, and those non-ruminant animals could then be fed to cattle, leaving a line of potential contamination open.

Humans who eat cattle infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (known as BSE or mad cow disease) can develop "new variation" Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (nvCJD), which, like AIDS, is considered to be 100 percent fatal.

http://www.organicconsumers.org/madcow/worries6201.cfm

And here is what the man who slaughtered the cow has to say about it:

The USDA had told the world that the mad cow had been slaughtered here, but it was not in the food chain. A blatant lie.

It was one of many. I walked out with the news crew at lunch time because I can't stand a government cover-up. They asked me "was the cow in the food chain?" I told them of course it was, it's meat. Where else would it be? They asked me if the cow was a downer. I told them no, it was just an old cow.

The USDA had us taking brain stem samples from downers and back door cripples only. Since we only had a few walkers on this trailer full of downers, we just killed her along with them. We took a brain sample from her head because the USDA gives up $10 per sample.

If we would have unloaded her in the pens, we would have never caught the BSE. How many other walkers have BSE? We will never know. The USDA only tested the downers and cripples and only at our plant. We had only been taking brain samples for about a month when we found this one.

http://www.counterpunch.org/louthan01202004.html

Now, I just want to make things clear. I'm not trying to scare people into avoiding cattle or cattle products, but to say that no one is going to get sick from this would be to lie. someone is going to end up eating that contaminated food. Of course, it will only be a few hundred people at most, meaning, you have about the same odds of winning the lottery. But the fact that our government under Bush is allowing this to go on is DISGUSTING.

Who knows, that may not have been the only cow anyway. Here is a nice, fat list, of articles showing the lies the USDA and FDA have told the american people:

http://organicconsumers.org/madcow.htm

Although, you should note the source. They do have an agenda themselves, but that doesn't mean you should discredit them altogther. Look at where they get their info for each article first.

All in all, this is a very depressing picture.

Bush lied about the WMD, and in fact, in 2001, Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice stated that Iraq was no threat and that Saddam no longer had WMDs or the capacity to make them. Both back tracked on their statements to support Bush in 2003.

Colin Powell and condoleeza Rice, caught on tape. You can't find this on TV anywhere in America, everything's censored. Gee, they love contradicting themselves, don't they?

http://www.evuk.co.uk/censorshipjp.wmv

Colon Powell, February 2001 - "He has not developed any significant capabilities with respect to weapons of mass destruction; he is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors."

Condoleeza Rice, July 2001 - "We are able to keep arms from him, his military forces have not been rebuilt."

I don't even think I need to cite Bush's lies, you know what they are. If you want me to quote what he has said, I'll be glad to do so though. L-I-A-R. Regardless of your opinion, it can be proven. Bush lied. He didn't exagerrate, he didn't mistate. He lied. Result? 10,000 dead Iraqis, $100+ billion cost to the taxpayers, Dick cheney gets richer, and if we can kill off all of the dissenting Iraqis who keep sabotaging our plans to steal their oil, the oilfields will be ours. You want opinion though? I'll give you mine. The ****er should be impeached, and then handed over to an international court.

The Bush administration has allowed certain teachers unions to be declared terrorist organizations.

And the part of the article showing this:

WASHINGTON — Education Secretary Rod Paige called the National Education Association, the nation's largest teachers union, "a terrorist organization" during a private meeting with governors Monday.

NEA President Reg Weaver shot back, "I think it is absolutely pathetic, and it is not anything to joke about."

Weaver's union, which represents 2.7 million teachers and other school workers, has been highly critical of President Bush's "No Child Left Behind" law. The union says the law imposes new requirements with inadequate funding and unfairly penalizes schools if students' test scores don't improve from year to year.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-02-23-paige-remarks_x.htm?POE=NEWISVA

The Bush Administration used the Homeland Security Department to bust up the dockworkers strike in 2003, threatening the strikers with terrorism charges for disrupting economic activity if they didn't get back to work.

http://rwor.org/a/v24/1161-1170/1170/docks.htm

But these are times when the U.S. government has declared itself on permanent war footing and threatened, "You're with us, or you're with the terrorists." When the ILWU refused to go along with all the demands of the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA)--the grouping of port operators and shippers--the dockworkers found themselves face to face with Big Brother and accused of being a "threat to national security."

The Bush administration has detained American citizens without a court order or a warrant. This is illegal according to the U.S. Constitution.

See above a little towards the top on the violations of our civil liberties. I posted links to an amnesty International article on this.

Donald Rumsfeld acknowledges that the Department of Defense cannot acount for more than 1/4 of what it spends. Most estimats, however, suggest that 3/4 of the money we spend on defense is unnacounted for. Since 1997, our government has not been able to account for over $3 trillion.

The low estimate is $1.1 trillion, and this is coming from the defense department themselves:

We reported that DoD processed $1.1 trillion in unsupported accounting entries to DoD Component financial data used to prepare departmental reports and DoD financial statements for FY 2000.

http://www.whereisthemoney.org/1.1trillion.htm

This, of course, is what Rumsfeld approved of to be released. In reality, it could be far more than that.

Here's the link to the over $3 trillion that is likely missing from defense spending:

US GDP is roughly USD$10 Trillion a year - ten times USD$1 Trillion – and three times the $3.3 Trillion unaccounted for by the DoD.

http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0305/S00158.htm

Bush is allowing our environment to be destroyed.

Do you really want me to explain this one? Just say yes and I will. Otherwise, I don't even think I'll waste my time on it, there's just too much.

In the 2000 election, between 4 and 6 million votes were illegally "dumped" acording to MIT and CalTech, and another 1.5 million were completely disenfranchised, due to people sharing the same names as convicted felons, ballot errors, ect. That's between 5.5 and 7.5 million votes that were not counted in 2000.

PASADENA, Calif.- Though over 100 million Americans went to the polls on election day 2000, as many as 6 million might just have well have spent the day fishing. Researchers at Caltech and MIT call these "lost votes" and think the number of uncounted votes could easily be cut by more than half in the 2004 election with just three simple reforms.

And the extra 1.5 million:

Bush had intellegence data stating that terrorists were soon to strike. He didn't read it, he was out vacationing in Texas. Since then, he has repeatedly tried to halt the investigation after the investigators his administration appointed are starting to point fingers at his administration.

About the Bush administration knowing about the terrorist threats:

A brief prepared for senior government officials at the beginning of July 2001 contained the following language: "Based on a review of all-source reporting over the last five months, we believe that UBL (Usama bin Laden) will launch a significant terrorist attack against U.S. and/or Israeli interests in the coming weeks. The attack will be spectacular and designed to inflict mass casualties against U.S. facilities or interests. Attack preparations have been made. Attack will occur with little or no warning".

http://www.buzzflash.com/contributors/04/01/con04035.html

About the stonewalling:

The federal commission investigating the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington charged July 8 that its work was being hampered by the reluctance of federal agencies to hand over documents or provide witnesses for unimpeded interview by commission staff.

A statement issued by the Republican chairman and Democratic vice chairman of the commission, former New Jersey governor Thomas Kean and former congressman Lee Hamilton, singled out the Pentagon for criticism for withholding information relating to NORAD, the joint US-Canadian air defense command, which failed to mobilize jet fighters in time to intercept any of the four airliners that were hijacked on the day of the attacks.

The commission has sought millions of documents from 16 federal agencies, but the vast majority of the documents have not yet been produced, even though the commission has used nearly half the time it was allotted by Congress for conducting the probe. It is due to present its report by May 27, 2004.

The statement issued by the commission warned that “problems that have arisen so far with the Department of Defense are becoming particularly serious.” It appealed for fuller cooperation by the Bush administration in the remaining months of the inquiry.

We are running out of affordable oil, and little is being done to adress this. In fact, Bush is encouraging more oil use through tax breaks for vehicles of a curb weight over 6,000 pounds. This affects all of us, remember the fuel crisis? Well, econocrap SUCKS.

We are running out of *affordable* oil. We have hit and passed peak production and we will have less available oil supplies on the market at any given time, meanwhile, worldwide demand keeps rising.



The world is not running out of fuel, Groppe said, but a long-term price rise is probably unavoidable. "Early in my career, I bought 5-cent (natural) gas ... we ran out of 5-cent gas. Some years later, we ran out of 15-cent gas, and we ran out of 25-cent gas. Basically what we've done now is we've run out of $2 and $2.50 gas, and we're going to be moving up to the next level."

http://www.courier-journal.com/business/news2003/06/25/biz-front-oil25-5558.html

And, in regards to the SUVs, you can see that people who don't need them for their business can still take part in the offers, such as motel owners.

The deduction for business owners, approved in May by President Bush as part of his federal tax-cut package, gives a deduction of up to $100,000 for new or used vehicles that weigh more than 6,000 pounds. Aside from Hummers and Cadillacs, the choices ranged from the Dodge Durango and the Ford Expedition to the Lincoln Navigator and the GMC Yukon.

Dealers across the Valley pledged to stay open late on New Year's Eve to handle the rush of customers, many of whom came straight from their accountants' offices after receiving advice about the tax deduction.

"Most of these people have done a lot of research to make sure they qualify for the program, and now they're coming back and buying the vehicles," said Eddie Espinosa, general manager of Kachina Cadillac Hummer Saab in Scottsdale.

Phyllis Tsai, 27, drove to Scottsdale from Snowflake to buy a new Hummer H2. Tsai, whose boyfriend owns a motel in the northern Arizona community, said they jumped at the chance to own a Hummer after realizing the 2003 write-off deadline was Wednesday.

"To me, a vehicle is a vehicle, but my boyfriend was really excited about it," said Tsai, who was the last customer at Kachina before the dealership closed shortly after 8 p.m.

But to Dave Bresnahan, the Hummer is much more than just a vehicle. In the eyes of his three sons, buying the "sunrise" orange Hummer for $55,000 made him the hippest dad in the Valley.

Bush is allowing the auto industry to hold back alternative fuel vehicles despite that the technology is finally here for them. He is also allowing the power industries to deregulate themselves, laxing emissions standards. The consequence? Because of air pollution, 50,000-100,000 people in America die premature deaths from various respiratory illnesses caused by it, more than terrorism, drunk driving accidents, AIDS deaths, and homicide deaths in America combined.

One such case if the Auto and Oil industries lobbying against CARB and trying to get it ruled unconstitutional. They eventually dropped the mandate.

Automakers Drop Suit over California's Zero Emission Vehicle Mandate
California's Air Resources Board (CARB) introduced the first incarnation of the zero emissions vehicle (ZEV) mandate in 1990 to spur the development of battery-powered cars, a technology that the automobile industry now regards as infeasible on a broad scale. CARB originally required pure ZEVs to make up 10 percent of the state's market share, a level that it subsequently reduced to 2 percent.

In 2001, an updated version of the ZEV regulation was issued that did not initially allow credit for certain low-emission vehicles (LEV). Three automakers-General Motors, DaimlerChrysler and Isuzu-filed lawsuits against CARB in 2002, challenging that version of the ZEV regulations. The lawsuits were subsequently combined.

The chief allegation of the lawsuit, which was upheld by a federal district court, was that federal fuel economy laws preempted a portion of the rule. It was held that the state overstepped its authority and was setting fuel efficiency policy -- policy that can be set only by the federal government -- with the ZEV regulations. A federal judge in Fresno put the regulations on hold in June 2002.

As a result of the federal court ruling, the state retooled the ZEV rule, even as it appealed the decision.

http://www.ncsl.org/programs/esnr/0903cleanair.htm

And the 50,000-100,000 that die per year from air pollution:

According to the American Lung Association, scientists have estimated that the number of deaths in the United States associated with air pollution range from 50,000 to 100,000 per year. For every 75 of these deaths per year, there are 265 hospital admissions for asthma and 240 non-asthma respiratory admissions; 3,500 respiratory emergency doctor visits; 180,000 asthma attacks; 930,000 restricted activity days; and, 2,000,000 acute respiratory symptom days.

http://www.green-e.org/your_e_choices/health.html

This is far more people killed by smog than the number killed by terrorism(3,295 in year 2001), AIDS(17,000, thetruthunknown.com), car crashes(40,000, www.unitedjustice.com, 44% alcohol reltated), or plane crashes(200). This is more people killed by smog than the number killed by homicide(15,000, Bureau of Justice) as well.

Bush allowed California energy companies a waiver for price gouging California electricity consumers, totalling $9 billion that energy companies ripped off of California energy consumers. This is enough money to make a significant impact on bringing the state out of debt.

More recently, Sacramento has turned to a “bid to get about $9 billion in energy refunds for 2000 and 2001, when power prices soared and the state faced energy shortages and rolling blackouts.”

http://www.csulb.edu/~d49er/archives/2003/spring/opinion/v10n83-our.shtml

And about that waiver:

Sheriff Bush Lets The Bad Guys Ride Off In The Dark
Boston Globe


http://www.gregpalast.com/detail.cfm?artid=263&row=1

Bush has allowed John Ashcroft to prosecute Greenpeace for "Sailormongering". Their crime? Protesting a shipment of mahogony wood that was illegally harvested from rainforests. They boarded the frigate carrying a banner. They commited no acts of violence. Sailormongering is a term used to describe the act of boarding prostitutes onto a ship to seduce sailors and have relations with them in exchange for money, and dates back into the 1800s. If prosecuted, Greenpeace could be shut down.

US Government response

But instead of intercepting the contraband and prosecuting the smugglers, the US government is going after Greenpeace. Making this the first time in history that the US government has prosecuted an entire organization for free speech related activities, and they are trying to do it without a jury trial.

In context

The activists off the coast of Miami were continuing a long US tradition of protest and civil disobedience. This tradition stretches back to include the civil rights movement, women's suffrage and the Boston Tea Party. Plus, they were essentially acting as whistle-blowers - publicly exposing, and trying to prevent, the importation of illegally harvested mahogany wood.

Their action was a small, but important, contribution to a global effort - which helped prompt an agreement, at an international conference that November, to give mahogany greater global protection.

For its work on this issue, Greenpeace received praise from the European Union, and the government of Brazil... And now a landmark indictment from the US government.


Charges and what's at stake

- One violation of U.S.C. section 2279, which prohibits persons, "not being duly authorized by law for the purpose," from "[going] on board any vessel about to arrive at the place of her destination, before her actual arrival, and before she has been completely moored".

- And one count of conspiracy, under 18 U.S.C. section 371, to commit this offense.

Bush is pushing electronic voting machines that have no paper trail. They could be tampered with and no one would ever know or be able to prove it happened. Worse yet, he has allowed Diebold to withold the machine's coding from the public. This is illegal, due to the fact that these are public elections, not private ones.

Everything you need to know about the voting machines:

http://www.blackboxvoting.org/

Add to that the fact that certain counties in California that used these machines had the majorty of their vote going to governor candidates people hardly even knew about, which statistically just couldn't happen, meaning, California was rigged. Bush allowed this.

Counties using Diebold Touchscreens:

Alameda, Plumas

Counties using Diebold Optiscan:


Fresno, Humboldt, Kern, Lassen, Marin, Placer, San
Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Trinity,
Tulare.

There were a total of 1,403,375 votes cast in these
counties combined. The CA total was 7,842,630 at this
stage of the count. Thus 17.89% of all the state votes
were cast/counted on Diebold equipment.

I had earlier noticed some lower order candidates
(ones who couldn't affect the result) were getting
unusually large numbers of votes in Tulare county. I
decided to test to see if these and other 'fringe'
candidates might be used to receive skimmed votes in
other Diebold counties.

Method:


I added all the votes cast/counted on Diebold
equipment for each candidate and expressed it as a
percentage of their total votes cast state wide. The
following table lists: Candidate name, votes counted
for them in Diebold counties, CA state total votes
counted for that candidate and what percentage of that
candidate's total votes were counted in Diebold
counties.

It looks like, as one might expect, at the top of the
list as if there is a slight variance from an even
state wide distribution. However many 'lower ticket'
candidates have vote totals that ONLY correlate with
the use of Diebold equipment! I have included some
names chosen at random from the result list that show
that not all lower order candidates were used to
receive skimmed votes. Note that Diebold's counties
are spread geographically over the whole of
California.

I have checked background on the skewed result
candidates and they are not residents of the counties
where they got very high percentage results. In one
case, Palmieri, the candidate was surprised to hear
about Tulare county (I emailed him) and had not been
there nor had family or friends there. In fact, his
platform was "Don't vote for me." He described this
vote pattern as "strange."

State total 7,842,630.


Cast in Diebold counties 1,403,375
17.89% of the total votes cast.

Schwarzenegger 581,145 3,552,787-- 16.36%

Bustamante 447,008 2,379,740--18.78%

McLintock 186,923 979,234-- 19.08%

Camejo 39,199 207,270-- 18.9%

Huffington 7,498 42,131-- 17.79%

Ueberoth 3365 21378-- 15.74%

Flynt 2384 15010-- 15.88%

Coleman 1869 12443-- 15.02%

Simon 1351 7648-- 17.66%

Palmieri 2542 3717-- 68.3%

Louie 598 3198-- 18.7%

Kunzman 1957 2133-- 91.75%

Roscoe 325 1941 --16.7%

Sprague 1026 1576 --65.10%

Macaluso 592 1504 --39.36%

Price 477 1011 --47.18%

Quinn 220 433 --50.8%

Martorana 165 420 --39.28%

Gosse 60 419 --14.3%

Conclusion:


Based on the very unlikely distribution of votes for
some candidates (a meteor hit my car twice this week
sort of odds) a hand count of the affected counties to
compare with the machine reported count should be
done. This would show that the machines had been
tampered with to alter the results. As we already
know, it is not possible to audit touchscreen machines
because Diebold refuses to allow printing of a ballot
to be placed in a box as a back up for use in just
such an apparent tampering with votes.

For those who are unsure of figures:

California is huge and has a population similar to
many European nations. Lower order candidates had
little or no ability to spread any sort of message to
parts of the state beyond their own home and/or where
they have previously lived. One would expect some of
the 'fringe' candidates to do well in their home
county and then to have a very even distribution
across the rest of the state. That is not the case. In
Diebold counties (those who use machines made by
Diebold, a corporation that supports George Bush) the
results are skewed towards low scoring candidates by
unbelievably large amounts.

The probability of scoring twice the expected average
county percent could charitably be construed as the upper
limit of the possible. Some candidates exceed that
figure in Diebold counties by a four or five fold
margin. If you have done statistics, you know that is
so far beyond what might be expected that you would
reject it as defective data. If it happened to one
candidate in this election, I would be surprised but
might accept it. There are a large number of
candidates who have this same systematic pattern of
receiving skimmed votes.

The California recall shows Diebold trying to affect
the election outcome by moving votes from high ranked
candidates to low ranked candidates.

By doing this, Diebold keeps the total number of votes
cast constant but robs some candidates of their votes.
Before anyone makes this a partisan issue - it could
be a Republican victim next time.

This isn't even 1/100 of the abuses Bush has commited to this country. He is turning america into an extreme right-wing version of the USSR, a corporate police state. The deomcrats, however, are also to blame.

Here's a rather lengthy compilation of Bush's abuses as president for the hundreds of things I didn't cover:

http://www.wage-slave.org/scorecard.html

Just read ahead, about the democrats.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards voted on this bogus war.

Although Kerry and Sen. John Edwards also voted to authorize the war in Iraq,
Lieberman was tarred for refusing to condemn President Bush's Iraq policy.

www.usatoday.com/news/politicselections/nation/ president/2004-02-03-lieberman-out_x.htm

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards voted on the PATRIOT and Homeland Security Acts.

Enough is enough let us have our rights back. Too bad Kerry,
Lieberman, and Edwards voted for the un-Patriot act.

adhallock.forclark.com/story/2004/1/27/14754/8552

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards said nothing about Bush's lies.

I have yet to hear either of them say that Bush lied about the WMD. If they have, please sent me a link.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards are not asking about Bush stonewalling the 911 investigation.

I have yet to hear either of them even mention this. If they have, please sent me a link.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards show no concern that California energy consumers got ripped off.

Show me something where they mention this.

John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards show no concern that the California election was rigged with touch-screen voting machines that lack a paper trail.

Again, show me where they even touch this. You won't find it.

My recommendation? Get your ass out and vote that ****er out of office. When and if Kerry gets in, don't stop there. B*tch at the moron, constantly, make him know that you want your rights back, you want your public infrastructure back, you want your environment to heal, you want him to cease taking handouts from corporations, you want him to be honest, you want him to think before he allows wars to happen, you want your tax dollars to be acounted for, you want a balanced budget, and that you dam well want him to bring integrity and honesty back to America's government. Because if Kerry gets elected and people stop caring just because a democrat is in office, then we have gone nowhere and our problems will keep getting worse, or at the very best, just stay where they are. As for Bush, he is the worst president we have ever had, with the most money-driven, power-hungry, dishonest, careless, crooked, Machiavellian administration that has ever ran this nation. Bush needs to go, along with his puppet masters we have come to know and(in my case) despise as Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, and Rice, and he needs to go for many more reasons than the ones I mentioned above. Want even more? Just take a look at the following link, there's hundreds:

http://www.wage-slave.org/scorecard.html

As for me, I dislike Kerry for the same reasons I dislike Bush. Unless he puts someone who isn't bought on the vice presidential ticket(Such as Dean, Mosley-Braun, or Kucinich), I'll most likely be voting for Nader...

But if you dislike Bush and want to see him go, you better get out, register now to make sure there's no problems, and vote. Those who simply remain apathetic to these violations of our rights, corruption in our government, and problems we face today and in the future are digging their own graves.

To all of you that happen to like him though, just to let you know, bush is making the government too big, too fast. What was said above in the violations of our liberties and the size of Bush's budgets is testament to that. In fact, there are hundreds of links I can point you to on the subject of conservatives and libertarians who want Bush out. They are very common.

All in all, the administration under Bush is fascist. There really isn't another way to say it

A similar list could be compiled for every president who has served during the past century. If bush were a perfect president, calling every shot exactly right... you could still make a laundry list like this full of biased claims that report half facts.

I'd like to refute many of these claims and point out the ones that hold water, but I don't have time.

Screw this... this is propaganda through and through.

The member is a total newb. who didn't even write this stuff.

This is just like the photos from Iraq thread.

Crap to stir stuff up from a member that has their own agenda.

That agenda is probably on a dozen different sites by now.

I suggest this thread go the way of anything else that dissappears. ;)

btw, if anything in the above is false, which much of it is, then this thread violates the AUP, which states that you may not post something that is purposfully wrong and misleading.

This is just another anti-bush person here to start trouble and try to act like they have a clue about the world.

btw, has anyone noticed how the terrorist, kim jung-il, the leaders of rouge middle-east nations like syria and iran, are all supporting Kerry for president and hoping that Bush is out in november?

If you ask me, the enemy of my enemy is my allie.
If the baathist of syria, Kim jung-il of N. Korea, and the terrorist all want G. Bush out, then maybe we should really think about who electing Kerry will really help? :odd:

btw, The "terrorist" that wrote the crap for the thread starter, and the person that posted it are both in the Kim jung-il/ terrorist/ baathist group... We don't need people like that here. ;)

I do not try and pretend to "have a clue" about the world, what everyone else does doesn't matter to me, I honestly don't care who wins the next elections, I merely found this information and wanted to share it with others.

I had this open in a word document, and I copied it from there Viper. I never said that I was anti-American, I just stated that these are reasons why Bush's government is corrupt. Simple as that.

If you don't understand, I will try to put it simply.

There are groups of political activist that take the time to write one message, then establish memberships with several internet message boards, then proceed to post that one message over and over again at the various sites.

They never have the intention of establishing an honest debate, they rarely come back to defend themselves or their comments.

This guy and this thread are perfect examples of this sophomoric political practice driven by often times, extremist and illegtimate agendas.

I think that should explain it, but if it didn't, just go look over the original post and the attitudes of the majority of members to weigh in on this thread.

I am certainly not a "political activist", and have no such intention to become one. If anyone actually reads my posts they will see what I am trying to achieve, an honest debate.

Well, basically, I hope the only other place I catch you is anywhere besides this forum. ;)

You can chill here, I will not be around too much.

Frankly, since you admitted to not writing what you posted, I have a hard time valuing the material in the post.

A great some of what is printed in that post is either unsubstantiated or strictly opinion. (note that there were some alleged facts as well as possible and actual facts. ) (not too sure though)

If you want to contribute to "honest debate" you should try looking at things from all sides, not just the one you found this stuff on.

You may also want to express your own views instead of posting an essay from an obviously anti-bush _______. (what, I guess, propagandist :confused: :lol: )

Anyway, I'm out of here for now, but dude, if you really care about this stuff, maybe you should try to do it for yourself and personally.

You know, some people might even consider what you have done to be something called "plagiarism". (COULD be, but is not since the thread starter cited "terrorist..." as the original writer.)

Anyway... :D

It is not plagiarism if you cite the source.

He didn't cite the source, his source cited its source... there is a difference.

Not that it matters, he didn't claim the work to be his own. That's the real argument why this isn't plagiarism.

Wow...that is horrible stuff. Bush has had a tough presidency, with 911, Afganistan, and then Iraq. And even though we didn't find WMD's, Saddam was exposed for being a ruthless dictator who killed thousands of innocent people and had regular contact with the same group responsible for 911. It was a matter of time before he was deposed. Bush did what he could to keep America safe. And while he did slip up, I feel secure as an American living in NYC that terrorists and the such won't be playing with Americans' lives. As was stated before, much of the information originally posted isn't credible, or even believable. It's propoganda. I can't believe he had the nerve to post this mental garbage.

Does it change anything from the original post, or even the concept of what I wrote in repsonse.

So if anyone wants to respond to my reply (240z seems to have a thing for that), try responding to the majority of the reply and not one small part while ignoring the rest.

Then again, I don't really care to have any responses... unless the future post in this thread are related to the original post, I suggest that replies to this thread are limited.
No straying off topic, no flaming.
No point to this thread. (if you want to bash bush, I think the iraqi photo thread should be plenty big enough for your comments. )

Later. :D

Wow I read a little bit of the opening post and I was shocked about how stupid someone can actually be.

You should support your government and your country. If you don't like it no one is forcing you to live in America. I mean if you think its terriable there are 200 other countries you can go live in.

The Bush government isn't corrupt, by your standards every president America has ever had is corrupt. Bush isn't that bad, sure he makes mistakes. He's not perfect.

And if you think you could do a better job then by god work your ass off and get on the presidential ticket. Its a free country and if you can gain enough support you have the ability to run for office.

It's things like this that bother. Why should I blindly support my government? If my government is wrong, and it is on thousands of accounts, I shouldn't support it.

No doubt the American government is probably one of the best in the world, but that doesn't mean every citizen should support it for the sake of supporting it. That's unamerican.
