Since we are remembering great music of days gone by....This was one of my favorites...( okay anything by Earth,Wind and Fire....)always reminds me of Summer Nights....sitting up after waiting tables...and bartending....reminds me of sitting on my Fire Escape, barefoot.....early 20's...clove cigarettes...( I know- shame on me)...3 Dollar wine....and soggy nachos....early Eighties...Blasting my stereo....and wishing Reagon would not be President much longer....wishing for Something...wishing for Something Better....

Dennis Kucinich is reading his Impeachment Resolution against Bush into the Record LIVE on CSpan.....Go Dennis...Somehow the "Fantasy " song is Good Background Music for This.....He is still trying to Do Something....about this
Criminal Regime.....( Me ...at this point...I am thinking Crimes Against Humanity....War Crimes Trials...but
that is just me....yeah here I sit...Wishing...again...for Something....)

Need Something GOOD to read?? Head over to SKippy's and he has a link to Freeway Blogger's Latest Adventures-He got Busted...yup....BUT it has a Real Interesting Ending...Head over...

And then, do you wonder HOW is it here in Ohio???is there trouble Economy wise? .....go read Jolly Roger's post at Reconstitution....really amazing post...

So it is STILL Hot as Hades...even after a Huge Thunderstorm....

Way to go Dennis! God that list must be sooooooooo long-- poor guy could be reading till into the wee hours.
I feel that Nancy Pelosi has becsically obstructed justice with her impeachment off the table blockade.
She has dis-served this country by not allowing impeachemnt to move forward.
Maybe the judiciary committee can finally get McClellan to testify, under oath & bust these criminal acts.
To date they just decline to come testify- as if it is optional.
So frustrating!

Anyway, although yesterday was a beautiful day in the 70's & we ate dinner outside for the first time this year- today was lightly raining & cool, sometimes windy.

Crazy weather.

funny though it is so hot where you are at & not so long ago, you were writing about how you were sick of snow & ice. I used to live in the modwest, so I know it often feels like one extreme or the other. the humidity does me in. So I hope you can stay cool - as a kid I practically lived in the local park pools all summer.

Ideas like impeachment or war crimes trial, can only be realized, with a movement from below. The Democrats don't lead.

Fran:::
Denis is STILL reading the Crimes into the Record- I think he started at 9:30PM, it is NOW 11:51 PM...omg...35 Frigging Counts...holy cow...( at this rate he could be there all night...)

About McCellan...apparently he is going to testify- WhooooHoooo...( maybe we will get that watergate summer after all???)....Wexler wants hearings..yeah...and so does Conyers...

we will see...
Now about the Heat...
It really is relentless- and 10 days ago I still had heat on...I know , I should not whine...but the extremes- esp the Heat is really wrecking me...
( I know I know...)

Good to see you ....Summer will come there...in the NW it is always soooo late....but so beautiful....

enigma4ever said...

Hey Renegade...
I know...I hear you...I realize I am just dreaming...War Crimes, on a bigger level...a different level.....sigh...Hey I have a good new post with a great Song over at ENIGMA CAFE....and Pelosi...what the hell was her problem...

okay...can't rant too much..my head will explode...

must stay calm....more iced tea...

Kellybelle said...

I'm loving this heat. I just put some frozen turkey burgers on my legs to cool off. Old school air conditioning.

McClellan said he'd testify against Bush et al?

enigma4ever said...

Kellybelle:::
tooooo funny...I had Frozen Peas on my head earlier- because my head was hurtin from the heat !!! ( yeah I know I am weather whimp...for sure...)

Yeah- Scotty said he would and will testify....I will bring popcorn for that..for sure....

OK, I know I am "a bit" older than you. For me, summer night music is "Lovin' Spoonful": like Hot Town Summer in the City (if I could link, I'd send you directly to YouTube), or Do you Believe in Magic, or Did'cha ever have to Make up Your Mind, or Nashville Cats!

It is fantastic weather here, not even using the A/C now. No humidity to speak of. Wierd summer weather for us, we should be in the 100's around now. I spent the afternoon gardening. Then tonight, we watched the ISS/Discovery zoom DIRECTLY overhead!

enigma4ever said...

DK:::Allll goood songs...and I remember them too...and the Space Station was overhead....wow...very cool...

Of course, reading this list into the official record makes Kucinich (and his supporters) feel good but, I liken it to masturbating over having actual sex.

Speaker of the House, Nancy "Botox" Pelosi and her goon squad of Centurions like Steny Hoyer, Jerrold Nadler, and
Ellen Tauscher fully support Pelosi's decision to never order the Article of Impeachment.

They are focused on winning the White House and not getting bogged down in the circus-like atmosphere that would overtake Washington DC (and the nation) if the attempt was made to impeach George W. Bush for war crimes and violations of the U.S. Constitution.

I have always argued the process of impeaching Bush should have started within 6 months of the Democrats gaining control of the U.S. House. But Pelosi said, "Impeachment is off the table." I think history will show she was wrong and by doing the nothing as Bush's criminalty unfolded, her inaction harmed the country as much as anything carried out by Bush and Cheney.

X. Dell said...

I've always loved that song.

One thing that has always confused me. Getting an impeachment vote against Bush would require a tremendous effort. Getting one against Bush AND Cheney would be daunting. In that case, if Bush got impeached, Cheney would openly be president, and nothing much would have changed.

I'm holding out that someone, somewhere, someday, will rightfully try and convict them both for war crimes.

Larry said...

Impeachment is too late and will never get anywhere due to there are far to many Bush enablers on both sides of the aisle.

MandT said...

When Pelosi took impeachment 'off the table', I lost any confidence I almost had in her. I hope she gets booted next election.She went against the wishes of the general population, just like the war that these criminals started.It is not too late to hold them accountable--
E4E~send me all of the heat & humidity you don't want. I am just in heaven with this current heat wave. This is what we wait 9 months of the year for up here in the Arctic...:)

Ingrid said...

It is almost 30C here in Austin (sorry, don't know what the Fahrenheit is lemme check...ok, it apparenlty is 81F but feels like 85 due to the high humidity of 72%. That said, when I lived in Saudi Arabia on the gulf (eastern region) humidity would be over 95% and the windows would be wet with dew in the morning.. pfff. I just came back from a walk and I'm toasty!
speaking of impeachment.. the problem with only having a two party system is that you will continue to have issues like Pelosi being afraid to be impeachment on the table as the Democratic party want to be assured of a Presidential win. Also, don't discount the ordinary people..as long as theya re apathetic, refuse to take actual stands, we will, for now only have Dennis Kucinich taking a position. Kind of like, 'let the record show'.. he's taking a stand AND setting an example. It is not very interesting nor revolutionary sounding, but it is not even the people who need to go after things, well, kind of is.. but they need to go after election and campaign reform big time. That and creating multiple parties (like in the NL) so that we don't get this reactionary, ping pong politics where it is always about the power struggle.

Internet has returned to normal - the tech guy came yesterday and got us all fixed. The thing is, all those wires make me so confused.

So I did hear Kuchinich over at Dusty's this morning - not live, but still.

Ingrid said...

ps...looove that EWF song, it is my favourite one of them..

Ingrid
(ps.. I still need to email you personally, I was reading the Tao yesterday afternoon and thought of you.. later!)

enigma4ever said...

Ahhh, Internet has been iffy this morning- due to Thunderstorms rolling through......(I hope the Flooded regions did got get more...)Okay time to get caught up...

Ingrid:::
It is a great song...I saw above what you said about Saudi Arabia...dew on the windows...urgh...that is daunting...Ahhh, and you brought up the two party system issue....I agree...About Kucinich-and reading the Crimes into the Record...I don't think it will change anything- and it is way too late for Impeachment....but I am glad that it is in the record, and I agree with XDELL above- All of them should face War Crimes trials....

DIVA::
I did not listen to all of it, most of it...but he definently was very thorough on his list... glad you are back on...

Mandt::
I will be sure to send some humidity your way.....no problem....About Pelosi...I was so sick when she took impeachment "off the table" it was NOT her decision to make- she went against the Will of the People..and she also made life hellish for people like Wexler and Conyers...

Larry::
I know it is too late for impeachment...but I am glad he read the Crimes into the record- and like I said above- if there are ever Criminal trials....like Xdell mentioned...then that transcript would be or could be helpful...

XDELL:::
I am with you...war crimes...and as I said above- atleast now it is all on record...all of the 35 counts..
what this whole Regime did was horrific on so many levels...and if we ever want the rest of the world to respect us again...Some kind of trial will have to be pursued...Impeachment actually is not enough at this point...

Christopher::
you always have an interesting way of putting things...it is not just about impeachment , it is about making a record of the crimes...Pelosi , showed poor judgement, and it was very dissappointing....she lost alot of respect all across the board....and you are right 2006 was the year it should have happened....
