The truth about Hillary


The former first lady, Hillary R. Clinton, has announced her formal candidacy for the Democratic nomination of president. If the party selects her as president it would be a grave mistake. It would be a solidifying of the Democrats' timidity, an embracing of a hollow middle ground where it becomes more Republican-lite than a true opposition party. Of course there are the dumbasses that can't resist the cool factor of voting for a former first lady, or the need to vote for any female Democrat running for president. But I think in the end, most Democrats will look into their souls and realize that not only do they no longer want to be the party of timidity, they'll realize that Hillary doesn't really stand for much at all. I mean what the heck are her core values? It sure beats me!

Hillary stepped away from universal health care when it failed during her hubby's tenure in office. Now, in her recent announcement, she says she wants to secure health care for "more" Americans. Well, *more* could be 100 or 1,000 -- sure is a hell of a long way from universal health care. Recent legislation Sen. Kennedy has been introducing goes a longer way toward a more just and progressive goal. This is another sell-out for Hillary.

Hillary has flip-flopped so many times on the Iraq War and Occupation (which I now simply cut down to one word: Quagmire), it makes onlookers dizzy, and makes Kerry look like an innocent altar boy. In her recent announcement she says she wants the "right end" to the military involvement in Iraq. What possibly could be the right end? Another 3,000 U.S. soldiers dead and another 100,000 Iraqis dead? And for what purpose does this quagmire continue for one more day? What could possibly make this tragic and costly quagmire "right"? It seems Hillary wants it two ways here -- and the reality is she can't.

In the final analysis, Obama and Edwards are stronger and more progressive candidates than Hillary. They also would likely appeal to more independents during a general election than the polarizing and often vilified Mrs. Clinton. They have staked out more progressive positions, and clearly posses stronger leadership skills.

I remember reading an article a couple years ago about Hillary and Bill during their school years, it relied on many of their school chums as sources. Turns out Hillary always loved power, and although she fell for a guy who wanted to be a professor, she betrayed her own heart to go for Bill who was going places. Evidence of a true megalomaniac.

I just hope most Democrats see the light, until then this Green will just watch from the sidelines.

A Proposal for We The People to Institute Positive Change

Hello sisters and brothers, subjects of the United States Empire, it has become clear the elected representatives on Capitol Hill no longer truly represent us and our best interests, but rather are serving their elite major campaign contributors. They serve the interests of the extreme rich and large corporations, certainly not the average American worker, student, or retired individual.

In order to improve our government, we, a collective of dedicated social justice activists, propose three demands to those who have power to legislate within the Federal Government. We list those demands here, and will then discuss how to make sure they pass into the law of the land:

1) Universal single payer health care, something that nearly all other developed nations of the world already possess for their citizens. We, as human beings, have a right to good health and to never be financially crippled in this pursuit of our own well-being. We demand that Congress pass House Resolution 676 and a Sen…

Steve Mihalis, a great friend and man of peace

May we all take up the cause as Steve did, and perhaps more importantly in the *manner* that he did.

I spoke with Steve by phone a week before he passed. He was in a whole lot of pain and the drugs were not helping. I forced back tears, as I was talking with him. The conversation was too brief, as was the time I knew this great guy. As I ended the conversation, I said "Steve, you know what? There's a whole lot of us in D.C. who love you." He just responded that he loved all of us, as well.

I had been arrested with Steve a handful of times, as we resisted the empire's wars and its unjust detaining and mistreatment fellow human beings. He always arrived in DC with a smile and open arms for a hug and a kind word, or two, or three.

Steve never had an unkind word for anyone. He became very involved with the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance over the last four years, and that's how I got to know him better.He always provided this wonderful source of positive ene…

Civil resistance intensifies to evil policies so far this year

In honor of Independence Day, I was originally going to write a piece talking about the loss of our republic to the military-corporate empire we live in now, but I thought I would just save myself the additional frustration and post Max from Baltimore's report on civil resistance actions and trials thus far this year! Thanks Max...

Thanks to all of you who were able to risk arrest or to support such protests against the Iraq War. Let us continue to take the risks of peace. This list of appeals, arrests and legal cases is not all-inclusive. Please send additions, corrections and updates to mobuszewski at verizon.net. Included are arrests and pending cases in 2008.
