No More Petitions - Just Action!

by Timbre' Wolf Sunday, Jul. 22, 2007 at 8:48 AM

But take my word for it, if you want to see a change, GIVE UP ON CONGRESS doing the right thing. As it has been said, Democrats don't want to wrench excessive, ubiquitous, executive power away from the Republicans - they simply want it for themselves in just under two years.

(San Francisco) - If you're still holding your breath for Congress to impeach Bush/Cheney you'd better have some serious lung capacity. Only 15 congress folk have come out in support of impeachment.

While polls show that a 54% majority of Americans support impeachment proceedings only about 3% of Congress does. ( 3.448% to be exact).

The appellation "Representative" is clearly a misnomer.

I am asked daily, through email, to sign yet another petition to try to right this-or-that injustice - and the problem is almost always caused by some stupid Bush administration antic.

There is only one chance, one hope, one way to solve these myriad problems...get Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney out of office. .

The bastards have shown us, repeatedly, that they do not care about the will of the American people.

If Congress will not impeach,

If the FBI will not investigate blatant "color of law" violations,

And if Military officers continue to chose retirement, over upholding their oath to protect the constitution against domestic enemies,

then all is lost.

It's a simple game. It is logical.

There will be another "terrorist" attack. Iran will be blamed and will find itself senselessly attacked. All natural national treasures will be opened for drilling. The rights of all Americans will be severely, and probably irreversibly, violated - make no mistake - there will be torture. And, finally, there will be no 2008 election in the interest of maintaining "National Continuity."

It is also a strong possibility that the USA will be attacked...not by Muslim extremists but, rather, by other "first world" countries. Hitler showed that you can only piss off the rest of the world for "so long" before they come after you. Remember that Dresden was once a beautiful city full of art, music, theater, culture, architecture - probably a little like your place of residence.

I will not sign another petition. Like Cindy Sheehan, I am tired and I feel used.

FYI: I resisted the Afghanistan and Iraq wars BEFORE they were started and BEFORE they became unpopular. Hell I resisted the FIRST Iraq war and Regan's threat to Iran and Vietnam years before all of this. But America seems economically addicted to these cyclical major wars; as well as the constant and continuous "skirmishes" where ever leaders are not in concert with US economic and ideological will.

You should sign the petitions - but all that you will be left with, at the end of the day, is your name on the wrong list. Since I'm already on that list, and I don't see any improvement what-so-ever, I don't see any value in continuing to sign petitions.

If you really want to make an impact I would suggest asking any military officer, that you can find, to uphold their oath - by force if necessary - to remove the Bush administration for violating the Constitution three times and committing countless illegal acts according to the Supreme and Federal Courts. The definition of an "enemy of the constitution" would certainly include someone who has willfully and unapologetically violated it three times and continues, unabated and unchecked, to do so.

If you really want to make a difference hound the FBI to investigate and prosecute the Bush administration for it's rampant assault on the American and Iraqi people with it's extensive color of law violations. The FBI's track record on these matters is deplorable but who knows...if we're lucky the administration has pissed somebody off over there.

But take my word for it, if you want to see a change, GIVE UP ON CONGRESS doing the right thing. As it has been said, Democrats don't want to wrench excessive, ubiquitous, executive power away from the Republicans - they simply want it for themselves in just under two years.

Spare me the "you're so cynical" emails. I'm NOT cynical - I'm just skeptical, and with good reason, and I have observed that certain courses of action are ineffective. In My Opinion, we must get much more creative to find EFFECTIVE ways to deal with this problem.


In 1990 Timbre' Wolf moved to the plains of Oklahoma and built a pole house so that he might live intentionally. Chopping wood and carrying water was a reality of his existence for the next decade.

Invited through a dream to attend a Sac & Fox sweat lodge, Timbre' Wolf was embraced as a long lost brother, by the tribal elder Ronnie Harris. Because of this arrangement there are men nearly his age who call him "Uncle." Timbre' Wolf holds that honor close to his heart as one of the most precious experiences of his life. Such a regular at the sweats, Ronnie "named" Wolf Lodge Pole which resulted in a good deal of jocularity among Timbre' Wolf's "nephews."

Timbre' Wolf has been heavily involved in music from the time he was four years old. First listening intently and pounding out rhythms, as he fell asleep at night, then as a vocalist in a regionally renowned boy choir, and later as a pianist, classical clarinetist, jazz saxophonist, and finally as a composer studying with Aaron Copeland's student and Curtis graduate Michael Hennigan.

Wolf campaigned for anti-war candidate George McGovern while in seventh grade and has protested every war since. Timbre' Wolf is rarely seen, publicly, without his guitar.

Timbre' Wolf is currently involved in an extensive Visualization Art Project in which he is running for President of the United States.
