SOME LIBERAL NEWS & PEACE RELATED ITEMS TO START OFF YOUR WEEKEND

STEALING AMERICA: Vote by Vote
New Feature-Length Documentary by EMMY-winning, OSCAR-nominated Filmmaker Ms Fadiman
http://stealingamerica.org/
[Duchess Note – As Robert Steinback of the Miami Herald said, “If it was tainted once, it can be tainted again”. He is so right. The neocons and Republicans stole 2000 and 2004 elections. Wanna make a bet they do so in 2008. We Americans must come together in a peaceful, nonviolent manner and protest the crimes of these individuals. They are stealing our country out from under our feet bit by bit. Its time for change and it has to happen NOW. As Gandhi said, “be the change. . . .” Also, thanks to Linda in sharing this link.]

What Kind of Peace
"What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children - not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women - not merely peace in our time but peace for all time." -- President John F. Kennedy at American University 10 June 1963

[Duchess Note – Fox News O’Reilly has always been a lying mad ranter. He’s now trying to label Foley as a Democrat. LOL Soooo false! Right-wingers are trying to say Democrats are to blame for it all, which is utter nonsense.]
