In the Name of Love by Cindy Sheehan

http://cindysheehanssoapbox.blogspot.com/2011/05/in-name-of-...

Thirty-two years ago today, I was very pregnant with my first child. In those days, of course, we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl and the pre-natal care usually consisted of a few blood tests and getting to hear the baby’s heart at every appointment.
With the June 5th deadline looming, on Sunday May 28th, my husband and I, went to an air show in Long Beach, Ca where we decided on the names: it would be Julie Anne for a baby girl or Casey Austin for a baby boy.
Well, lo and behold, the very next morning, I went into labor, one week early and on May 29th, our healthy, 8lb 2oz baby boy, Casey Austin, was born. We were thrilled and Casey, the perfect baby, was the apple of our eyes. Very quickly, boom, boom, boom, three more came: Carly Anne, Andrew Patrick and the baby, Jane Elizabeth.
As for mothers all over the world, my family was my life. As parents, we made our share of mistakes, but everything we did from May 29th, 1979 and forward was for and about our family.
One of the hardest things to do as a mother is to let your children grow up and make their own mistakes. Human beings usually don’t learn from the errors of others, but have to make their own. On Casey’s 21st birthday, he made a huge mistake: he joined Uncle Sam’s Army and 55 days before his 25th birthday, he was killed in Iraq in one of The Empire's Wars for Profit, Iraq.

Correct...

"He is also not a Corporatist." He is a communist, nationalizing the majority of industry and controlling the media. State control is not Freedom.

He's a friend of liberty for sure. /sarcasm

He's NOT a "communist"


He's a socialist.

Canada is also socialist too (free health care, free education, retirement, etc.) by the exact same definition.

And he is not "controlling" the Media, rather he is preventing American CIA-front "News" organizations from stealing the airwaves and advocating acts of violence, subversion, and chaos.

Now in America, someone can get fired and kicked off the airwaves if they just use certain words (like "nigger"). And if someone advocated actual violence then they'd clearly be gone too. So the Media is actually far more restrictive here in the U.S., and I think that it is great that Chavez refuses to tolerate the CIA interventionist bullsh*t.

When the CIA loses, freedom does finally have a chance to occur. Venezuela deserves to have their own free, self-determination about their Country, and have a happy socialist environment if they want (no different than Canada) -- even if you don't approve.

And the CIA should be kicked outta there!!!
Go Hugo!!

Communism\Socialism

The varying degrees of totalitarianism do not celebrate liberty.

Wrong site.

Cindy is a moron

she met with a dictator named Hugo Chavez....yeah.hypocrite on a pulpit.

"Clark_Kent" is the moron



1. Hugo Chavez is not "a dictator". He has been elected to the public office of President by the people there in three straight Democratic elections (despite attempted inteference and bribery by the American CIA), and he has also survived an attempt at a bloody Coup d' Etat perpetrated by the fascist mass-murdering American CIA.

2. Unlike America, Hugo Chavez never started any Wars in his life. He is not a Warmonger, and he (like Ron Paul) correctly opposes the crooked U.S. Foreign Policy of shame. He is also not a Corporatist. All this hatred by the United States Government directed at Hugo Chavez is precisely because he has defeated the forces of Corporatism in his own Country, and succeeded at reclaiming the control of Venezuela Oil for the benefit of their own society (and driven away the profiteers). American Oil Monopolies and the CIA (the real "dictators" here) are pissed -- and that's where all the demonization comes from.

3. Hugo Chavez has not only used Oil revenues to benefit the poor people and for social uplift in his own Country, he has also sold cheap Oil into America as well for people who qualify for assisted Home heating oil plans. This is the type of guy who America smears as "an enemy", while they simulataneously prop-up and support murders and tyrants throughout the Middle-East. In fact, it is actually America, and the American Government that is the real "Dictatorship". For we are the Country of perpetual War, no more Bill Of Rights, Human Torture, and legalized bribery masquarading as a "political system".

4. Given a choice between suffering under a bunch of lying Totalitarian War Criminals and Fascists like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Barack Obama, etc. .. I would much rather have a leader in this Country who, like Hugo Chavez, was a peace oriented, humanitarian, who was strong enough, smart enough, and principled enough to stand up and oppose crooked Corporatism, CIA violence, and War Crimes.

__

FYI: The few men of peace that we have, such as Ron Paul, has no animosity towards Hugo Chavez -- its only the fascists like yourself who do.

LOL

I know of a news organization in Venezuela that host their servers here in the U.S. because they get raided by Chavez's goons on a regular basis.

They have to pay their provider in cash though back channels because they are under constant threat from the Chavez administration.

That guy sure is a freedom lover let me tell you.

This is what happends when progressives invade

the Ron Paul websites..they think they know so much and then they attack anyone like myself who actually does know the difference between freedom and slavery.I recognize Hugo Chavez as a dictator.plain fact.

This is what happens when the CIA invades the Ron Paul

websites. They try to spew their ugly CIA propaganda, sound-bites, and false history on the readers to justify their murderous rape and pilliage of the World.

They are threatened by President Chavez (who was elected by his own people unlike George W. Bush) because he stands-up to the CIA, and refuses to give in to their inflitration, threats, and phony News front organizations.

Anyone who is rooting for the CIA rather than Chavez in this situation is no friend of Liberty, and Ron Paul himself knows that Chavez is a man of peace, and clearly no "dictator" --as the phony, lying American CIA and State Dept. would have us believe.


Thank you

You put it so well
Thank you.

Find any WMD yet?


It is the American CIA sponsered News Outfits that have been rightfully restricted there because they openly advocate for violence and subversion.

Good for Chavez!! I'm glad that Chavez has the balls to fight back. It's about time that someone on the World stage finally stood-up to the fascist, corrupt, mass-murdering American CIA -- which, in fact, is responsible for much of the disinformation that we are spoonfed (and that sheep like you blindly believe in).

Good luck finding your WMD...
LOL indeed!!

Whatever.

That's why they have to sneak their cash out of the country because god knows the CIA couldn't pay through halfway normal channels.

He's no Jesus. He is just another megalomaniac in power, just one of the many crime families in control with his little piece of the world to torture.

It is America that does the Torture.


Unlike America, Chavez has no 'Gitmo', no "Patriot Act", and no phony, criminal Global Wars and illegal Foreign Occupations.

So as America has mass-murdered over 1,000,000+ innocent people, and supports closed E-Voting machines with no verification whatsoever ... it is kind of funny really for anyone in America to call somebody else a 'dictator'.

Chavez's outspoken opposition to this Dark Empire proves what side he is on. And other Latin American countries have adopted similar attempts to reclaim their National Sovereignty (as they should) and fight the enslaving U.S. CIA monster.

Nope. The only "torture" here comes from The United States Empire.

word war on dp.,

LB, this is what I like about DP, there are many informed and vigilant members who quickly make corrections to errors, and refute the lies. This makes reading DP so informative, and some exchanges so enjoyable. Great, stay "On".
You have used many terms to describe the monster, add some more if you have seen the "Confessions of an economic hitman", = for cia as Collecting Interest for America, or the Usurious $atanic Agency. If you have seen John Pilger's documentary videos about south america you will agree. In one interview an ex-cia officer said - our job is to protect the reserve currency status of the U$ dollar. Even the stamp on the one-dollar note is that of the pharoh, with the one-eye of the ugly ogre ogling from the apex of the pyramid, a symbol of tyranny.
Hoping the Liberty movement gains strength and takes charge of america, As Soon As Possible.
with best wishes.

Its good to know that butt kissing is around DP still

the NI4D apologists and communist,and marxist apologists sure do come out of the woodwork .

Hey, who invited Dick Cheney?

.

corrected ,

thanks. I had ignored the foul comment from CK, no 'superman', the clerk with no vision. Corrected above from -1 to +

As Cindy explains: “We are

As Cindy explains: “We are not anti-American, we are anti-Imperialism”. She just plain got tired of all the misinformation spread here in the USA about President Chavez and the people’s Bolivarian Revolution. For only one example, the National Endowment for Democracy (an Orwellian named agency receiving federal money to subvert real democracy) spends millions of dollars every year in Venezuela trying to destabilize Chavez’s democratically elected government. Meanwhile, back at home in “the freest nation on earth,” we enjoy a President who keeps us safe by killing American citizens (anywhere in the world) who are only suspects – without trials!
Somehow, I doubt this interview (or this observation) will be noticed or covered by the Mainstream Media.

Get the story straight, Clark_Kent.
Boy, you're no Superman. You're just a typical Mainstream Media reporter.

Cindy is in a position to develop a

world-wide movement of parents who have lost children to war. Non-partisan, across all statist borders, the grief and demand for peace and end to killing must be universal. And of course here in the belly of the Beast, the movement should be biggest and loudest and most insistent.

whatever you are smoking

is extremely potent. Cindy is not a messiah.

Cindy almost went to Tripoli Libya

her friend Cynthia McKinney went and this is her first report shocking report:

The sad thing is

that we seem to get war presidents whether we vote Demmican or Repulocrat. (Remember Clinton's bombing the aspirin factory in the Sudan?)

Drone attacks on Pk,

LL, Somalia is in east Africa, near the Gulf of Aden.
Add to the current list of bomb attacks = Pakistan.
We often get news of drones firing Hellfire missiles over N-W-Pakistan, - CIA and Pentagon say they are hunting terrorists but thousand of civilians have been killed unjustly, and many homes destroyed. At the same time they fund and arm some outfits that run bombing campaigns against the Pk govt security forces, then boldly announce we are avenging the killing of Osama-bin-Laden. False-flag operations are creating a crazy situation, ordinary folks do not know who are the bad guys or the good guys, which leads to fear, confusion, plus disturbance of daily life.

Drone Attacks?

No, say it isn't so! Has anyone had any success shouting one down?
Any pointers?

Where is PK?
Is that near Pennsylvannia? Drones have been sighted near Pennsylvania.
Very dangerous critters.

Between the drones and the clones (cops) what's a freedom loving rebel to do?

Lol oops. I think it's right

Lol oops. I think it's right next to bolognia.
