Saxby Chambliss Stole Senate Seat Last Time

Tag: Elections

Will somebody ask the DSCC to stop having Cleland send out Emails claiming that Chambliss legitimately beat him and that therefore we should donate money?

Can everyone focus on election protection in Georgia, for the purpose of getting the Democrats 60 seats and denying them any more excuses not to enact the will of the public?

Bush Firing Disloyal Federal Employees

Tag: Public Policy

By David Swanson

Half the story has been told. On Tuesday the Washington Post reported that Bush is creating civil service positions for loyal appointees, in order to make it hard for Obama to get rid of them.

Bushies to Remain in Government

Tag: Political Ideas

By David Swanson

Not only is President Elect Obama talking about keeping on key Bushies like Robert Gates.

Not only is Bush transforming appointees into career civil servants, in order to prevent Obama from bringing in new people. (Read the WaPo story.)

But -- and this has not, as far as I know, yet been reported -- Bush is firing dozens of employees in various departments who have been whistleblowers or are known to lean left politically, and replacing them with loyal Bushies. Or so I'm told by a very good source. More info coming soon.

Veterans Occupy National Archives

Tag: Peace and War

By David Swanson

This was the second time that a group of veterans opposed to illegal wars and in favor of the rule of law had taken over the National Archives building in Washington, D.C. The first time, several weeks ago, a group of them had climbed onto a ledge on the front of the building with flags and banners. This time, they aimed higher.

Diebold Went Down to Georgia

Tag: Elections

By David Swanson

The 60 vote filibuster-proof majority for the Democrats in the Senate looks like it will come down to a run-off Senate race in Georgia, barring the appointment of some Republican senators to plum jobs in Obamaland or finally giving DC voting representation. If the Democrats do not get that super majority, they will have an excuse for ignoring the public will -- and you can bet your golden fiddle they'll use it.

What If Labor Opposed War?

Tag: Labor, Peace and War

By David Swanson

I think the peace movement and every justice movement in the United States should simply overwhelm Congress members during the next two months with one and only one demand: Pass the Employee Free Choice Act in January. This is, of course, the bill that the labor movement has been trying to pass for years, and that Democrats in Congress and President Elect Obama have committed to making law: http://aflcio.org/joinaunion/voiceatwork/efca
