The B.U.S.H. Boycott, Phase I: My Experience...(correction...)

by grassroots Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2004 at 9:15 PM

B.U.S.H. Boycott in Action... Phase I, November 22, 2004

The B.U.S.H. Boycott...
mvc-012x.jpgcdwlva.jpg, image/jpeg, 768x1024

Great experience at my savings & loan!
Told teller and bank manager about the boycott to bring U.S. soldiers home from Iraq.
Both agreed that it was a good idea.
Withdrew a symbolic $9.11.
Will redeposit $9.11 in the bank when all soldiers are home from Iraq.

I then emailed Ed Royce, my congressman, informing him of my participation in the B.U.S.H. boycott.

Receipt of $9.11 included.
B.U.S.H. Boycott, Phase 2, December 22, 2004
B.U.S.H. Boycott, Phase 3, January 20, Inauguration Day!

This is an enjoyable, educational boycott!
PLEASE JOIN!!

B.U.S.H. BOYCOTT, $9.11

by grassroots Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2004 at 9:15 PM

B.U.S.H. BOYCOTT, $9...
mvc-014x.jpgqwc1ns.jpg, image/jpeg, 768x1024

Here is the withdrawal that I made today
at my credit union: $9.11,
I told the teller that I was withdrawing CASH out of my account, and that I would redeposit it when all U.S. soldiers were home from Iraq. She was very interested in what I had to say. She has a brother-in-law in the Navy, not deployed to Iraq, and a son, 15, who is in ROTC. She is very worried about the war and her son's future.

I spoke with the bank manager about the boycott, and she was openly supportive.

Both were invited to participate in the next two B.U.S.H. Boycotts to bring United States Soldiers home from Iraq, December 22 and January 20, Inauguration Day!!

It's important to create new ways to engage politics.

So let me get this straight.

You withdrawal $9.11 (that'll surely break the bank) in an homage to the 9-11 attcks on the US by Islamists as a protest against Bush for fighting back AGAINST these same Islamists.

Curious.

Perjaps you should follow this logic to it's natural conclusion and send this fortune of yours staright to Al Queda or Hezbollah or any number of the myriad global groups of murdering islamic savages.

But of course, it's Bush's fault that muslims continue to attack the civilized world on an almost daily basis.

error in your logic

by more rational Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2004 at 3:51 AM

The attack on Iraq was not against the terrorists, but against Iraq.

Unexpectedly, the Ba'athists didn't fight back.

Subsequently, terrorists within Iraq (unconnected to the fallen regime), and outsiders coming into Iraq have organized resistance against the US.

The Al-Qaeda terrorists who were involved in the WTC attack, are. today, somewhere... but do we even know where anymore? Are they still in Afghanistan?

The Bush administration has failed to go after Al-Qaeda, and squandered our resources in Iraq, where we're losing support from the populace. Nobody is really taking the idea of democracy in Iraq seriously anymore... which is exactly how the Bushites want it.

They want to install an authoritarian regime there. Might as well start calling the next puppet Saddam 2. (Look, this is not some far-out predictions. I think we've *always* installed "democratic authorities", aka pseudo-democracy with corrupt elections, whenever possible. Look at Japan or the Philippines. Those only became really democratic in the 1980s.)

The one silver lining to this could be this: if the US can put this lousy chapter in the war to a close, it'll scare a lot of secular (or somewnat less than militant Islam) Arab nations to align with each other, and ally with the US. This will rebuild the anti-democratic, anti-populist, and exploitative relationshps we've created with our dictator allies in the region.

Now, if the US fails, and exits Iraq, leaving it a mess, who knows what can happen? Things could really go to hell, with other countries invading Iraq. This probably won't be the outcome... because eventually, the UN would intervene to mop up what Bush screwed up. But this ending isn't good at all either. It could involve an extended economic recession as our budget recovers.

Welp... some good could come of this. If things go bad, they'll know who to blame. And, the various progressive groups will have some more credibility. The far left, particularly the Communist groups, will have a pretty easy time organizing the newly discontented. We'll get to see how the other 1/3 of the eligible voters votes.
