Vermont Moonbats Want Brattleboro to Arrest Bush & Cheney

(All well-dressed machinists like to sport red berets.)

The New England town meeting has been long admired as a rare surviving instance of direct democracy in action, which gladdened the hearts of the democratic principle’s admirers everywhere by remaining practical and effective.

All that was, of course, in the old days, when town meetings were attended by crusty old farmers notorious for skepticism and common sense. Today, alas! Vermont towns have frequently been taken over by trust-fund bolsheviks and hippie tree-huggers, who bring a very different approach to direct democracy. Given access to direct democracy, these kinds of arriviste dingbats are moving to try to arrest the president and vice president.

Brattleboro Reformer:

We’re planning to arrest, detain and extradite him,” said Kurt Daims of Brattleboro, an activist who has sought to impeach President George W. Bush and is now trying to up the ante. “There’s a fundamental question here. If Congress doesn’t do this, shouldn’t it be done anyway?”

Daims hopes to gather the 440 signatures necessary to place an article on the Town Meeting warning that would call for the Brattleboro Police Department to arrest Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney and cart them off to unspecified foreign entities.

“Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictment for consideration by other municipalities?” Daims’ proposed article reads.

“And shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictment, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro and extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them.”

Daims joined a group of eight like-minded activists Friday afternoon for their weekly impeachment march through town. Beating homemade drums and waving signs calling for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney, the protesters walked from the Brattleboro Food Co-op to the Municipal Building and dropped off a copy of the proposed article at the Town Clerk’s office.

According to Newfane Selectboard member Dan DeWalt, who made headlines when his town called for Bush’s impeachment in March of 2006, even if Daims is unsuccessful in throwing Bush in the clinker, his message could resonate throughout the country.

“Kurt saying ‘I’m going to arrest the president’ has no meaning. The town of Brattleboro voting to say they’re going to arrest the president does have meaning,” DeWalt said.

As to just where Brattleboro would send Bush if he was arrested, DeWalt said, “I know there are people preparing war crimes charges against him. I don’t know if they’ve officially been filed anywhere, but once they are filed that would give us a place to extradite him to next time he comes to town.”

Daims hopes other towns will be inspired by his quest and pursue similar courses of action — particularly Kennebunkport, Maine, where the Bush family spends its summers.

“We should do something Mr. Bush can feel. Maine is a very liberal state and I think this could pass in Maine, so then he couldn’t get to his million dollar family vacation resort,” Daims said. “They could arrest him there.”

There has got to be something in the maple syrup in that town!

Darn! I would have predicted that there would be homemade drums and a Food Co-Op in there, but I got carried away with the story before I could say it out loud.



John lynn

Hopefully he will arrest Hillary Clinton also since she voted for it??? Guess that’s not in the cards???

Just to get your panties in a bunch:

TOP TEN SIGNS THAT YOU ARE AN UNQUESTIONING CHRISTIAN

10- You vigorously deny the existence of thousands
of gods claimed by other religions, but feel
outraged when someone denies the existence of your god.

9- You feel insulted and ‘dehumanized’ when
scientists say that people evolved from lesser life
forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim
that we were created from dirt.

8- You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem
believing in a Trinity god.

7- Your face turns purple when you hear of the
‘atrocities’ attributed to Allah, but you don’t even
flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered
all the babies of Egypt in ‘Exodus’ and ordered the
elimination of entire ethnic groups in ‘Joshua’ —
including women, children, and animals!

6- You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and
Greek claims about god sleeping with women, but you
have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit
impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who
got killed, came back to life and then ascended into
the sky.

5- You are willing to spend your life looking for
little loop-holes in the scientifically established
age of the Earth (4.55 billion years), but you find
nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by
pre-historic tribesmen sitting in their tents and
guessing that the Earth is a couple of generations
old!

4- You believe that the entire population of this
planet wi th the exception of those who share your
beliefs — though excluding those in all rival
sects — will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of
Suffering. And yet you consider your religion the
most ‘tolerant’ and ‘loving’.

3- While modern science, history, geology, biology,
and physics have failed to convince you otherwise,
some idiot rolling around on the floor, speaking in
‘tongues,’ may be all the evidence you need.

2- You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it
comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be
evidence that prayer works. And you think that the
remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1- You actually know a lot less than many Atheists
and Agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and
church history — but still call yourself a
“Christian.”

You’re a bit confused, old girl. I’m a skeptic and a scoffer personally, but also a Conservative.

Cheers,

Finally! I wish more people had it in them to stand up and say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done. Maybe Congress will finally get the message and impeach those warmongers. Not only do I want to see Bush and Cheney held responsible for committing crimes against the Constitution (or in other words, the people of this country), but also I don’t want to see a precedent set that would allow future presidents to follow in their footsteps. Does anyone think that the Congress or the citizens of this country would have allowed President Bill Clinton to even break half of the laws that Bush and Cheney have broken? I don’t think so! I saw a wonderful T-shirt that read, “Will somebody please give Bush a blowjob so we can impeach him already.”

Just love how you call them “trust fund bolsheviks” nevermind the trust fund idiots in the GOP, and in the white house!

At least the recent Vermonters are supporting environmental causes with that ill gotten blue blood money!

Thanks to Susan for the top ten btw.
