Urgent from Stewart Rhodes: Give Me Your Top Ten Unconstitutional Bush Actions

I am about to write a blistering rebuttal to a neocon, Bush kool-aid drinking diatribe that acts as though the Bush years never happened, and only under Obama was the Constitution subverted. As usual, these neocons totally ignore the incredibly destructive, unconstitutional, treasonous actions of the Bush Admin and only complain about what has happened in the past three years, as if they were in a coma till January, 2009. I cannot at this time disclose the document I am rebutting, but I will post it, along with my rebuttal, after I am done.

Please help me by adding your top ten list (or top 20!) of Bush Admin crimes against the Constitution.

I think I already have a pretty decent list, but let me know if I am missing anything.

My top ten list of Bush Admin crimes against Constitution:

OWS is misguided statists

These list of "grievances" comes from these people. When you read them, please note that they find almost no fault with the powerful central government that stomps on individual liberty.


-They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage. (Just another example of people not wanting to pay their bills or abide by legal contracts.)

Father who lost FDNY son on 9/11 says memorial is no place for fakers

Because his son was a true hero of 9/11 he has no tolerance for fake heroes.

"Every day that I wake up, my son Firefighter Jimmy Riches of Engine 4 is still gone," says retired FDNY Deputy Chief Jim Riches of Dyker Heights. "Still dead in the terrorist attacks of 9/11. There is never closure. So on the 10th anniversary ceremony at Ground Zero the only difference will be that I will have to look at the faces of Rudy Giuliani and George W. Bush in person. I have too much respect for the dead to confront these two lying politicians at that ceremony."

Ant and the Grasshopper (2 versions)

(Forwarded from Friend)

This one is a little different ...
Two Different Versions ...
Two Different Morals

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

Be responsible for yourself!


Bush Advises Hillary Campaign

It seems Bush is betting on Hillary being the next POTUS. Perhaps he knows something we don't? Two stories got my attention, on subsequent days. In the first, Bush predicts Hillary will get the Democrat nomination. In the second, Bush is apparently working with Hillary and others to adjust their positions and maintain the flexibility to stay in Iraq. I consider this an attempt to trap us all in that country for the next presidential term or two.
