I use to believe that old mantra 'This is the people's house..'
Before Bush it looked like this:

Now it looks like this:

Osama Bin Ladin has more ownership of the House than any of us.

The Carlyle White House
Politics – Former employees of Carlyle include President George H.W. Bush; James Baker III, Bush Sr.'s sec. of state; and G. W. Bush Jr., who served on the board of directors. Saudi BinLaden Group, sold its investment back to the firm a month after the 9/11 attacks. OSAMA BIN LADEN himself had a financial interest in Carlyle. Who owns the White House?

Kind of makes one wonder if while sitting around a boardroom table if bin laden agreed to play the bad guy..

Other owners:

Bought and Paid For

Bush has turned the election into an auction, an invitation-only opportunity for Corporate America to prove its loyalty to the president

Nearly one in five Rangers and Pioneers comes from the financial sector. This group of 85 bankers, stockbrokers and wealthy private investors --

Bush's economic policies -- particularly the sweeping dividend, capital gains and income tax cuts -- have lined Wall Street's pockets

These same firms have been at the center of almost every major corporate scandal from Enron to Worldcom to Martha Stewart. Yet Wall Street is banking on Bush to muzzle watchdogs like New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and fend off further regulation of mutual funds, derivatives trading and arcane, highly profitable tax-avoidance schemes. The Wall Street Journal reported that hedge fund consultant Lee Hennessee sent out invitations to a March 11 Bush fundraiser with this message: "The current administration is favorable to the hedge fund industry, and we need to do all we can to keep them in office."

The client lists of major Bush backers read like a corporate scandal sheet -- from Boeing and Wal-Mart to Tyco and the tobacco companies.
Real estate developers, who have donated at least $32.2 million to Bush campaign efforts since 1999, have helped shape the White House's anti-environment agenda.

We the people, will never get it back. Elections will let us think we have some power to attain control, but there's so much mistrust in that system now a days.

We could try to 'crash the gates' but I doubt even as a group that we have the spine or will to do anything that would require the kind of energy, organization, and capability to get it back.

All it seems we can do is this:

..endless chatter, distractions and arguments..

Because we are so afraid of this:

The Patriot Act's Power

They Image Hosted by did it with a lot of help from their friends. They will leave in 2008, smiling all the way to the bank.

Without Impeachment for all the world to see, The American Citizen will never get back the ownership of the White House and all the Rights that our founding fathers promised us.

I come to this conclusion by watching the candidates gather money- obscene amounts of money- to try to buy it back, but for who? Not us I fear.

The best we can do is buy a ticket for admission or REALLY really push for IMPEACHMENT!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    We just need to fumigate it to remove the bugs and pests.

    should still be on the table. bush leaves all this damage to follow for every future president.  How many will ask to have their power reduced?  It would take a very, very, good man or woman and I don't see any waiting in the ranks. Giving up power is hard work.

    It hasn't been a bloodless coup, but it has been extremely successful.

    We might get the house back, but it will be bugged and the 1% now knows how much easier it is to rule the world with a armed forces.

      •  Speaking of DeLay and "work" (0+ / 0-)

        The "work" he has had done on his face is SO disturbing. Some very bad feng shui of the face going on there. DeLay was already a chronic fake smiler, and now he has a permanent fake smile affixed to his gob.


        He could rid a house of any creature just by showing up. One look at him and everything would evacuate.
