WHY DON'T AMERICANS CARE?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

since the release of the "downing street memo" I have seen very little press on it.

is it apathy?

are we morons?

have we truly bought into the idea that bush can do no wrong?

do Americans even know the memo exists?

have we given up?

DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

please pass this along to your friends and family and raise awareness about it.

they want this to just fade away...we won't let them dictate what is important.

and if over 1,600 U.S. servicemen and servicewomen killed in Iraq, the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, and over $200 billion in taxpayer funds going to this war effort isn't important, then don't know what is.

tell them what they did was wrong and they WILL be held accountable for it.

Nedhead - you mean sorry for the bad. It's not news and it's certainly not good.

Americans don't care because the Republicans have worked up so many people into a lather about distrusting anyone who says anything that requires questioning America and what it's doing.

In the early 20th century, there were 17 Socialist newspapers in Oklahoma alone. Socialism was very popular among farmers and working class people, not just the well educated.

Now, people have been trained to tune out anyone wo speaks differently than them or has a different opinion.

The British memo proves that the lead up to the Iraq war was all posturing. But nothing will come of it in America. Hell, if someone in the press asks Bush a question he doesn't like, that reporter is forever banned from covering the white house. It's basically blackmail: your silence or your career.

I think Americans are just too numbed by everything. Everything sucks about the economy, Iraq, etc. and too many people are interested in lightweight "news" about runaway brides and Michael Jackson. Who wants to think about something weighty like "is our president a thug who needs to be impeached?"

I think the blame can be spread around quite a bit. The executive branch and legislative branch of our government, the media and worst of all, the voting public. Unfortunately, we have allowed our leaders to grow fat and comfortable. And I think it is very simpleminded to just blame republicans.

Change doesn't often happen instantaneously. In history books it is represented as so. Unfortunately, change is the accumulation of many acts by many people over many years. And who knows what direction the wind may blow?

And I think people do care. Unfortunately, they may decide to base their opinions on "facts" that you and I may disagree with.

As Strider said, we have to keep on keepin' on. Despite the "police" state that some would like to believe we live in, I know that I am free to walk to the corner of Spruce and Market and yell out that Bush is the worst president ever, has committed serious crimes against humanity, and deserves to be impeached and tried before a war crimes court. And I would be allowed to get back in my car and go home.

John Conyers has a petition going regarding this memo. The MSM is in the dark, but at least a couple of reps in DC are rumbling. You can sign it here:
