The latest crazyness from "The PEN" (The People's Email Network)

Yesterday, I received the following from "The PEN." Some of my comments are
interspersed in parenthesis, and colored red.
Take ALL Tax Cuts Out Of Economic Stimulus Package, They Won't Win A Single Republican Vote Anyway

Haven't We Learned Yet That Tax Cuts Do LITTLE To Stimulate The Economy (Apparently you haven't learned that tax cuts DO stimulate the economy.)

The whole reason we are in the economic perilous straits we are in right now, is the lunatic Republican fixation on tax cuts, (BZZZT!! WRONG. The WHOLE reason we are in this mess is the way the Democratic led Congress and Senate screwed up the Credit industry, insisting they make home loans to people who really couldn't afford it. IF you want some one to blame, look to Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank and who ever else was responsible for the Fanny Mae debacle.) which all competent economists (read left wing loon economists) agree are the WORST way to boost the economy. People need real jobs with real wages, and until they get them they will not have any taxes to cut. And until people have jobs, and are making money again, the economy does not have a prayer.

But even so, president Obama tried in a bipartisan way (Bipartisan my ass. The current Democratic version of bipartisanship is we make the laws and you sign on the dotted line, or else.) to build lots of tax cuts (and even more in Democratic pork) into the package for the Republicans to try to placate them, hundreds of billion of dollars worth. And what did the Republicans in the House do? They just spit in his face. Not ONE Republican voted for the bill, not one!! (THANK the GODS and GODDESSES!) All of the tax cuts need to come out, all of them, and be put into infrastructure building jobs instead. And then we'll have a bill that actually works for America.

No Tax Cuts For Stimulus Action Page:

People like Rush Limbaugh have said straight up they just want our new president to fail. (You obviously don't listen to the man, if you did, you'd know how wrong you are.) That's how much they hate America, (Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?) after all the damage they have done, they just want to do more. And whether the rest of the Republican party says it out loud or not, they just want to sabotage any possible recovery so they can seize power again. (You really are stupid, aren't you.)

So what's the point of crippling our own recovery plan with yet more tax cuts (Don't forget the pork that was put in too.) which have NEVER worked in the past, and which even the Republicans DO NOT support? Instead, we say take ALL the tax cuts out, and then let's have a national debate on why Republicans are obstructing the change(Change? Looks to me like business as usual, for a Democrat controlled congress and Senate that is.) that America voted for in such overwhelming margins. (I wouldn't call 53% to 46% an overwhelming margin. That's a difference of what? Four or five percent. A winning margin to be sure. But overwhelming? Hardly.)

No Tax Cuts For Stimulus Action Page:

And because it is such an important action, every return page from every action page on our site from now on will include the new Local State Prosecutor lookup, where you can instantly get the contact information for the district attorney in your county, to write or call or fax them to demand they prosecute Bush and Cheney for the murder of citizens of their county, in a war based on patently false pretenses in Iraq. (I would think, the detainees in Gitmo would be more likely targets for murder prosecution, since many of them pulled the trigger.)

Renowned former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi (No wonder he's "Former prosecutor.") has laid out a compelling case for charging both Bush and Cheney with the premediated (I think you mean "premeditated.") murder of American service men and women, for starting a war with Iraq on patently false pretenses. By using this new lookup page you can instantly get the mailing address, phone, fax, and in many cases also the email of your local prosecutor. This action is SO critical we have also dedicated our entire main site homepage to it.

Local Prosecutor Lookup:

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not asking anyone to file a "formal" criminal complaint yourself. Common sense tells us that a state prosecutor will only act, in the exercise of their OWN discretion, if they believe there is a non-frivolous case to bring. But by speaking out, we can let them know there is community support for them to do so.

We cannot depend only on the single chance of Attorney General Nominee Holder taking aggressive and righteous action. There has been entirely too much "sweep it all under the rug" talk in the White House transition. But there are nearly 3,000 county level state prosecutors in the country. (Who have absolutely NO JURISDICTION to file a case) (I think this next word should start with an uppercase "A." I mean, really, dude, get a spell checker or something.)and they aren't ALL complacent toadies. So as much of an improvement as Holder may be, only pressure from all flanks will compel him to act. And some state prosecutors, prosecuting their own cases, is just the formula.

It seems the entire corporate media is trying to sing the same song of inaction, to try to smear as being "hateful" anyone who loves and wants to restore the constitution. What a smear on the idea of upholding the rule of law to characterize anyone who thinks that monstrous war crimes actually ought to be prosecuted as just being out for "revenge". (Odd, I don't hear you crying about prosecuting the war criminals we have in Gitmo. Or is that just us seeking revenge?)

Friends, the same demons and their proteges who committed all the crimes which now so shame us will be back even stronger before we know it, unless Bush and Cheney are prosecuted now. Now we learn there was not a single member of the media who was not illegally and systematically wiredtapped. (I think they meant "wire tapped") We were that close to a totalitarian police state,(And with Obama in Office, we are only getting closer.) and we have but a small window of opportunity to keep from endorsing the crimes of the future, by prosecuting NOW (Really? You want to prosecute the National Organization for Women???) to the full extent and duty of the law.

Imagine what it would be like if we found just ONE crusading state prosecutor to respond to the call of destiny. Imagine what it would be like if a DOZEN or more suddenly sprang into action, because of our many letters, and phone calls, and faxes and emails. We can open up an whole new third front, and keep it open.

And after you use the local prosecutor lookup, from the same page you can also request one of the new "Convict Dick & W" caps from the same page, complete with a little embroidered cowboy hat on the "W". Yes, a tiny cowboy hat for a very small man, the Cowboy from Connecticut, our first presidential felon to be, George Bush. It's perfect. (I take back what I said earlier. You're not stupid. You plain out nuts.)

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
