  •  Good addition! (4.00)

    It took a lot of time to do these --
    I have Senators and other stuff still to post.

    I also wanted to focus on those still in office,
    who might want to eat their words. For some reason I left out DeLay---guess I removed him from office in my mind!

      •  Great to hear you protest that (none)
        person every week!! Bravo!! Can't stand her!!! she is a major bozo in every way isn't she?

        Whenever I hear about protests around the country I am cheered! They are never carried in the national media so one never knows what is going on. I live in Florida--Cliff Sterns R--now, and I have problems with legs that keep me from protesting actively. I write him lots and lots of emails though.

        Keep on keepin on!

      •  i was thinking the same thing (none)
        i'm remember cornyn & several texas GOPers got all high & mighty with Clinton but won't raise a peep about their fearless leader George.

        btw, here's your fearless leader as he has JUST learned a SECOND plane has hit the towers (he already knew Tower 1 was hit BEFORE he entered the photo op).

        is incompetence impeachable?

      •  Yes! (none)
        Here is what I pulled out on her. I hadn't quite decided how much I would use in my Senate diary, but I'm including it all here so that you can pick and choose what you would like to use. I cut and paste these out of the official record so as not to make any transcription errors. I don't have date (it would be during the Senate Trial in early '99) and page numbers handy, but if you need them just let me know. Also, I don't think Clinton was ever convicted of perjury, I still need to verify that. Just haven't had a chance.

        Senator Kay Hutchinson
        I do not hold to the view of our Constitution that there must be an actual, indictable crime in order for an act of a public officer to be impeachable. It is clear to this Senator that there are, indeed, circumstances, short of a felony criminal offense that would justify the removal of a public officer from office, including the President of the United States.

        Manifest injury to the Office of the President, toour Nation, and to the American people, and gross abuses of trust and of public office clearly can reach the level of intensity that would justify the impeachment and removal of a

        Lying is a moral wrong. Perjury is a lie told under oath that is legally wrong. To be illegal, the lie must be willfully told, must be believed to be untrue, and must relate to a material matter. Title 18, Section 1621 and 1623, U.S. Code.

        Whoever knowingly uses intimidation or physical force,threatens, or corruptly persuades another person,or attempts to do so, or engages in misleading conduct toward another person, with intent to--
               (i) influence, delay, or prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding;
               (ii) cause or induce any person to
                   (A) withhold testimony or evidence    from an official proceeding,              
                   (B) alter or destroy evidence in    an official proceeding;
                    (C) evade legal process summoning that person as a witness or produce evidence in an official proceeding to which the person has been summoned;
               (iii) harass another person and thereby hinder, delay, prevent, or dissuade any person from attending or testifying in an official proceeding; or
               (iv) corruptly influence, obstruct, or impede, or endeavor to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice;
        is guilty of witness tampering and/or obstruction of justice.
             Title 18, Sections 1512 and 1503, U.S. Code.

        The President of the United States engaged in a
        pattern of conduct, performed acts of willful deception, and told and disseminated massive falsehoods, including lies told directly to the American people, that were designed and corruptly calculated to impede, obstruct, and prevent the plaintiff in the Arkansas Federal sexual harassment case from seeking and obtaining justice in the Federal court system of
        the United States, and to further prevent the Federal grand jury from performing its functions and responsibilities under law,

        I, therefore, vote ``Guilty'' on Article II of the Articles of Impeachment of the President in this proceeding.

    •  You were projecting with DeLay - (none)
      He's like a roach that just won't go. You spray it with Raid, crush it, flush it down the toilet, and twenty seconds later, it pops up in the bowl still kicking...

      I think, therefore I am NOT A REPUBLICAN!!!
