[DUCHESS NOTE – This past weekend I received the below tidbit from Linda in TX. In April 1968, Coretta Scott King delivered the address her late husband was to make. The passage below is from that address.]

Ten Commandments on Vietnam
Thou shalt not believe in a military victory. (applause)
Number two: thou shalt not believe in a political victory. (applause)
Number three: thou shalt not believe that they, the Vietnamese, love us. (applause)
Number four: thou shalt not believe that the Saigon government has the support of the people. (applause)
Number five: thou shalt not believe that the majority of the South Vietnamese look upon the Vietcong as terrorists. (applause)
Number six: thou shalt not believe the figures of killed enemies are killed Americans. (applause)
Number seven: thou shalt not believe that the generals know best. (applause)
Number eight: thou shalt not believe that the enemy's victory means communism. (applause)
Number nine: thou shalt not believe that the world supports the United States. (applause)
Number ten: thou shalt not kill. (long applause)

[DUCHESS NOTE – These “Ten Commandments” from the King address can very much be applied today, just change Vietnam for Iraq.]

McKinney Introduces Bill to Impeach Bush
In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia representative Cynthia McKinney announced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney Introduces Articles of Impeachment, Faces Vicious Attacks by Media
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has introduced articles of impeachment against George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleezza Rice. In doing so, she alone has spoken for the 51 percent of Americans who Newsweek says want Bush impeached. Read McKinney's remarks.

[DUCHESS NOTE – I’m sending a hearty BRAVO to Congresswoman McKinney in showing courage and doing the right thing. Naturally the heavily controlled right wing media will viciously attack her for pursuing truth and justice. They are sick buggers! I suggest we ALL call or fax the congresswoman’s office, and even your own representatives, to give her support.]
