Resign or face impeachment

TheHill reported Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) told Vice President Dick Cheney to “resign or face impeachment” Thursday night as three more House Democrats lent their support to a plan to impeach the vice president.
Go ahead. The Reppublicans screwed up by impeaching Clinton when they knew no Democrats would vote to convict. Go ahead and make the same mistake.
“The vice president holds himself above the law, and it is time for the Congress to enforce the law,” McDermott said in a floor speech. “For the good of the nation, the vice president could leave office immediately.” McDermott was one of three House Democrats to come out in favor of impeachment Thursday, along with Reps. Keith Ellison (Minn.)
The Muslim
and Hank Johnson (Ga.). Including the three lawmakers, seven members in June have shown new support for impeaching Cheney.

PakTribune reported Punjab Chief Minister, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has said that Benazir Bhutto is also guilty like blasphemer Salman Rushdie.
Did she write a book? Was she knighted by the Queen? Oh well, let's just kill her anyway.
... He said that Benazir, who remained Prime Minister of Pakistan twice,
Aha. The real reason. We want to make sure she does not become Prime Minister a third time.
has forgotten the name of Islam
Isn't is Islam???
while living abroad and is disturbed for support of blasphemer Salman Rushdi.

He said that those who are supporting blasphemer Salman Rushdi are not only enemy of Pakistan and its masses but are also enemy of Islam and Muslim Ummah. He said that the people cannot tolerate blasphemer Salman Rushdi and his supporters. He said that the people will never support such party which is against our country, religion and people.
Muslims must have a very weak faith if it can be threatened by one book, or a few cartoons, or a quote fro a 14th century person.
He said that the future of democracy is safe in the country and the forthcoming elections would be transparent and fair.
As long as we kill all of those blasphemers.

Iran fuel rations spark violence

BBC NEWS reported At least 12 petrol stations have been torched in the Iranian capital, Tehran, after the government announced fuel rationing for private vehicles.
That makes a lot of sense. Not!!! You don't like fuel rationing, so burn down a gasoline station.
Windows were smashed and stones thrown at the stations, and there was traffic chaos as motorists queued to buy fuel.
Did anyone say that fuel rationing is unIslamic?
Iranians were given only two hours' notice of the move that limits private drivers to 100 litres of fuel a month. Despite its huge energy reserves, Iran lacks refining capacity and it imports about 40% of its petrol.
Maybe they need nuclear powered cars.
The country has a large budget deficit largely caused by fuel subsidies and the inflation rate is estimated at 20-30%.
Unrest is good. It will prompt even harsher actions by the government, which will foster even more unrest. Maybe they will topple to government from within.
The BBC's Tehran correspondent, Frances Harrison, says Iran is trying to rein in fuel consumption over fears of possible UN sanctions over its nuclear programme. Iran fears the West could impose sanctions on its petrol imports and cripple its economy.

Gore blames scientists for climate crisis

Independent reported In an extraordinary outburst aimed at America's failure to tackle global warming, Al Gore says that if scientific agreement on the climate crisis had been reached sooner it would have been easier to "galvanise the public and persuade Congress to act".
As if there were really scientific agreement on it now. In reality the press has just agreed to says that the scientists that cater to GW are the only real scientists, and to hide the opinions of those that disagree with them.
The failed presidential candidate claims that the stronger scientific consensus he knew was about to emerge meant "we in the US were about to shift into high gear in addressing the climate crisis". Mr Gore argues that if he had made it to the White House, he would have been able to use the office as a "bully pulpit" to achieve change.
So it's the scientists fault you lost? Could it be bad publicity on that internet you invented?
"The nature and severity of the climate crisis had seemed painfully obvious to me for quite a long time," claims Mr Gore, writing in a new foreword to a revised edition of his book, Earth in the Balance, being published this week.
Then why when you were VP did Clinton not submit Kyoto to the senate for approval? Did it have anything to do with the 95 to 0 vote they made which said they would reject the treaty?
In a swipe at the scientific community, he says: "I wish that we could have had in the 1990s the deafening scientific consensus that has emerged in more recent years."
Unfortunately we listened to both side back then.
Mr Gore accuses his nemesis, President George Bush, of having taken "virtually no steps to address the problem. Worse, he and Vice President Cheney have led the nation in precisely the wrong direction."
Bush's ranch is more enviromentally proper than your huge new house.
He goes on to detail how the Bush administration reversed a pledge to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant, pulled out of negotiations on the Kyoto treaty and replaced key scientific advisers with ones suggested by oil giant ExxonMobil.
The treaty was already finished, and Clinton signed it. He just could not get the Senate to approve it. All Bush did is reverse Clinton's signing something that would never be approved.
The point of no return will be reached within 10 years, the former vice president says, and we cannot wait any longer to solve the crisis. He blames a focus on instant gratification for the "exclusion of long-term consequences in our decisions and policies" and writes about his "mission of solving the climate crisis". His Oscar-winning documentary on climate change, An Inconvenient Truth, became the surprise box-office hit of 2006.

Mr Gore claims that concerns over the environment formed his "principal agenda for eight years in the White House". But he is light on details of what he did while in office, beyond a brief mention of his work with the Kyoto treaty (which was never ratified by Congress).
He claims a lot, but is always light on the details, because they show that he is lying.
During his tenure as vice president, America's carbon dioxide emissions shot up far faster than at any time in modern history - by 15 per cent, compared to just 1.65 per cent during President Bush's first term.
It's a good thing we got him out of office.
