YouTube Campaign to Impeach Bush

YouTube, how do I love thee? I got a msg in my YouTube inbox today from drachnid01, wondering if I'd be interested in watching his video response to freesouljah's YouTube Campaign to Impeach Bush. Man, I love the way that all those tubes on the internets are interconnected... it makes life very interesting.

So - was I interested in drachnid01's video response? HELL YES! It's a brilliant piece of work. Here it is - a good dozen reasons to impeach both Bush and Cheney for their War of Terrorism:



Nicely done, drachnid01 - that's a pretty full-on set of reasons you got there.

So now let's track backwards and see the original video from freesouljah that inspired drachnid01. Follow me down the tubes, people!



Gotta love freesouljah - what a mellow dude!

Now if you watched that video, you'll see that it in turn was a response to warren25smash's YouTube Get Out Of Iraq Campaign - which currently has over 33,000 views. Here it is:



...and so it goes on. warren25smash posts a whole lot of videos on YouTube - he's a very angry, very passionate person, who's got a lot to say about Bush and the war on Iraq. He's getting pretty well known for swearing on his videos - and I can't really say I blame him. The insanity of Bush makes me swear on a regular basis. I just don't do it much on YouTube...

Speaking of responses to Dubya (that's Mister 28% to you!), I rather liked Senator Jim Webb's response to Bush's lacklustre State of the Union address last night. Here's Jim:

Regarding the economic imbalance in our country, I am reminded of the situation President Theodore Roosevelt faced in the early days of the 20th century. America was then, as now, drifting apart along class lines. The so-called robber barons were unapologetically raking in a huge percentage of the national wealth. The dispossessed workers at the bottom were threatening revolt.

Roosevelt spoke strongly against these divisions. He told his fellow Republicans that they must set themselves "as resolutely against improper corporate influence on the one hand as against demagogy and mob rule on the other." And he did something about it.

As I look at Iraq, I recall the words of former general and soon-to-be President Dwight Eisenhower during the dark days of the Korean War, which had fallen into a bloody stalemate. "When comes the end?" asked the General who had commanded our forces in Europe during World War Two. And as soon as he became President, he brought the Korean War to an end.

These Presidents took the right kind of action, for the benefit of the American people and for the health of our relations around the world. Tonight we are calling on this President to take similar action, in both areas. If he does, we will join him. If he does not, we will be showing him the way.

Right on, Jim! In addition to showing him the way, would you mind also showing him the door? Now? Thanks, man.

It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. Comments can be sent to elected representatives and local newspapers at your option. The participation page is at:

Since this campaign began, three members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents. Make your voice heard, and let others know!
