BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIX MIX -- PENSACOLA, FL.
HE PUT IN HIS STREAKS.
HE BOARDED THE PLANE.
HE GAVE IT HIS ALL OR AT LEAST ALL THAT A PROFESSIONAL HALF-ASS CAN GIVE.
AND JUDAS CRIST!
IN FLORIDA, AS HE AND HIS OVERHANGING BELLY SHOWED UP TO STUMP FOR CHARLIE CHRIST, WHERE WAS CHRIST?
BULLY BOY WAS THERE. SWEATING LIKE A PIG. JEB BUSH WAS THERE. WONDERING WHAT KIND OF FUTURE HE COULD HAVE WITHOUT LEGALLY CHANGING HIS NAME AND ASSUMING SOME SORT OF DISGUISE?
GOODNESS, EVEN KATHARINE HARRIS SHOWED UP AND JEB & BULLY HAD DONE EVERYTHING TO GET HER OUT OF THE RACE EXCEPT T.P. HER HOME AND GIVE HER AN ATOMIC WEDGIE.
BUT THERE WAS KATHY. TOO MUCH MAKE UP AS USUAL. GRIN A LITTLE TOO TIGHT. GRIP ON REALITY A LITTLE TOO LOOSE.
NO 1 HAD THE HEART TO TELL HER IT WAS OVER. SHE WAS THE GIRL BULLY BOY. OR WAS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?
AS KATHY HARRIS WAVED AND WAVED TRYING TO GET JEB AND BULLY BOY'S ATTENTION, CHARLIE CRIST (WHO HAS BUILT HIS CAMPAIGN UPON REASSURING VOTERS THAT HE IS NOT GAY -- HE IS NOT GAY -- HE IS NOT GAY) HIGH TAILED IT OVER TO JACKSONVILLE TO GRAB SOME FACE TIME WITH JOHN MCCAIN.
DID BULLY BOY FORGET TO SHOWER? DID HE FORGET HIS DEODORANT?
FOR SOME REASON, EVERY ONE WAS AVOIDING HIM.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
"In Iraq, I found myself being the problem instead of the solution" -- Ivan Brobeck quoted by Alison Bodine (Fire This Time). Today, he became the latest US war resister to return from Canada to the United States. Quantico Marine Base in Quantico, VA is where he expects to be processed. Brobeck enlisted in the Marines and, as Jim Fennerty explained to Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!) last Friday, there are different processes for different branches and Fennerty believes that Brobeck will "be placed in the brig" and very likely face a court-martial -- which wasn't the case for Darrell Anderson whom Fennerty also represented. Courage to Resist has posted the twenty-year-old war resister's open letter to the Bully Boy. Speaking with Nora Barrows Friedman on yesterday's Flashpoints Brobeck shared: "I'm sort of trying to teach them to open their eyes. It's easy to forget basic stuff in Iraq."Ivan Brobeck in is own words via Pacific News Service:
I was in the Marines. I joined in June 2003, and after boot camp in March of 2004 I was sent directly to Iraq. This wasn't at all unsettling to me. You see, I went into the Army because I wanted to fight the bad guys. In school during history classes I learned that the Army and Marines had done all these wonderful things, and it all sounded so patriotic and I wanted to do the same. I wanted to fight for freedom.
I didn't care, and I still don't care, if I died fighting for a good and noble cause which is what I wanted to do.
In Iraq, I found myself being the problem instead of the solution. A problem in a normal town, in the life of normal people, like the people here in Toronto, trying to go about their life and risking getting shot at by me. Innocent people getting killed for misunderstandings, and for even more trivial things. I found myself in situations with my partners where we had to shoot at speeding cars, at people that probably were just trying to get out of our way.
All these insurgents, as they call them, they're not. They're people who have nothing left. There was this guy who was mad at us because we had killed his family. Wife, children, everybody but him had been killed. He was seeking some kind of retribution. That is not an insurgent, that's a desperate man.
My ethnic background is Salvadoran; my mom is from El Salvador. So the fight against tyranny is something that is dear to me, considering the history of El Salvador. I believed that the war in Iraq was a just war, and it was not. Now, before I get involved again, I really have to see somebody overcoming my country with weapons in hand.
Ivan Brobeck, Darrell Anderson, Ricky Clousing, Mark Wilkerson, Ehren Watada Camilo Meija, Pablo Paredes, Carl Webb, Stephen Funk, David Sanders, Dan Felushko, Brandon Hughey, Joshua Key, Jeremy Hinzman, Corey Glass, Patrick Hart, Clifford Cornell, Agustin Aguayo, Joshua Despain, Katherine Jashinski, and Kevin Benderman are among those who have been part of a movement of war resistance within the military.
Focusing on one US war resister mentioned above (also a Fennerty client), Kyle Snyder returned from Canada last week only to discover that the same military that lied to sign up, was still lying. Noting the ABC News investigation that found the lies of recruiters continue, Elaine commented: "Will anyone get in trouble for the above? No. But kids will be lied to. Young adults and peole who aren't even 18 yet will be lied to over and over. They'll believe the lies. They'll assume no one in uniform would say something if it wasn't true. My friend, who's back from Iraq and speaking to students so that they don't end up over there, has so many stories like this. He's speaking about twice a week now and there is never just a handful of students who are able to share the kind of lies they've been told, it's always a large number."Why do recruiters lie? Because they can get away with it. Because they won't be punished. They can sign up someone, someone who is not even able to legally purchase a beer, to a 'contract' that could result in the loss of life and they can do so with any lie that can tumble out of their mouths because there is no accountability.
Information on recruiters and protecting schools can be found at Coalition Against Militarism in Our Schools, Counter-Recruitment and Alternatives to the Military Program and Campus Anti-War Network. Information on war resistance within the military can be found at Center on Conscience & War, The Objector, The G.I. Rights Hotline, and the War Resisters Support Campaign. Courage to Resist offers information on all public war resisters. Appeal for Redress is collecting signatures of active duty service members calling on Congress to bring the troops home.
