Support The Levin-Reed Amendment: Tell Your Senate Representatives To Dump Bush!

During the previous week, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill to return the lion's share of our fighting men and women back from Iraq by April 1, 2008. The Senate of the United States is currently giving consideration to comparable measures, sponsored by Senators Levin Democrat of Michigan and Reed Democrat from Rhode Island. It is a bipartisan amendment to the 2008 Defense Authorization bill which will require

President Bush to start reduction of the number of US troops in Iraq within four months. That means getting many troops out of Iraq by April 30, 2008. It also means transitioning the mission of the remainder of American military forces there. Change the strategy so the mission becomes enforcement and protection, further prepararation of Iraqi Security Forces, and counter-terrorism missions.

We believe all U.S. Senators should allow the Levin-Reed amendment to come to a full, in the Senate. The vote is scheduled for today, July 17, 2007. Our troops are caught in the midst of a contentious and counter-productive civil war. We need a new strategy in Iraq. Senators your continued refusal to allow the Senate to vote on this issue is extremely damaging to our troops and our entire country.

The Levin-Reed legislation is a real alternative to the president's failed Iraq policy, and represents a critical first step in ending the occupation of Iraq.

We also believe as do many Americans, the President's "stay the course" strategy is wrong in Iraq. Clearly these policies have failed. We can not understand anyone who is compelled to continue supporting such unsuccesful policies.

The Iraqi Prime Minister has recently stated Iraqi forces could take control of their security at "any time" American troops want to leave. The Iraqis say they don't need American troops. A majority of American citizens wants to see our troops begin coming home.

Even the president has said our troops have accomplished their military mission, albeit rather premaaturely. They toppled a dictator, secured the country for multiple elections, and have given the Iraqi factions ample time to come together and work out their differences. The continued presence of American troops in Iraq significantly arouses anti-U.S. sentiment. American occupation severly prevents the Iraqi security forces from "standing up" as they need to do. American troops need to receive the ord to "stand down".

We ask Republican senators and Senator Joe Lieberman, and those Democrats would consider participating, to refrain from joining a filibuster of the Levin-Reed amendment. We ask you to help the people and to allow the vote to go forth.

Abandon this misguided loyalty to the President. Replace any biased view of the reality of what is happening on the ground in Iraq. Obstinace, you utter resistance to facing reality will cost both our armed forces and our country. It is a price we, the American people recognize we are no longer willing to pay.

Paris Hilton: More Boobs in the News

Clark Dark, YouThinkWhat, here with entertainment news, and I do mean entertainment!

No, this is not a story about Geroge Walker Bush, nor his father George Herbert Walker Bush or anyone associated with the adminstration or the president's family. This is real news; the kind of news the government wants you to focus on. Do not file this under "News You Can Use".

Paris Hilton, celebutante, businesswoman, model, actress, recording artist and now ex-convict, was rumored to have had breast surgery. According to those who watch her constantly it is only rumor.Hilton's breasts have undergone another metomorphisis. She's returned to looking like a soft boy.(Read that "flat-chested".)

The Hilton hotel heiress/hotchee sparked rumours of a boob surgery when she was photographed with a more voluptuous figure. Aamerican Paparazzi recently snapped pics of La Hilton partying at a Los Angeles hot spot nightclubs to toast her release from the big house.

Now that she's back to her original size, as seen in photos of her posing on Malibu beach, California, all rumors about plastic surgery have died.

Some fashion experts say the change is due to Hilton changing her brassieres. The people who know about thiese things, both lingerie and what Hilton wears under her clothes, say she's wearing different foundations to achieve different effects depending on the event.

HR 2956: Legislation to Reduce US Troops in Iraq by Spring 2008

"No one man can terrorize a whole nation unless we are all his accomplices." - Edward R Murrow

For the third time in fewer than 6 months the United States House of Representatives has spurned President George W. Bush's bungled management and faulty leadership of the war in Iraq.

On Thursday, July 12, 2007, a coalition composed of Democrats and some Republicans , manged to pass a bill. This group of politicians created yet another piece of legislation for regarding our troops in Iraq. By a vote of 223-201, a handful of Republicans and most Democrats moved to support the bill.
HR 2956, would require U.S. forces in Iraq to be reduced to a "limited presence" by April 1, 2008. The bill was conceived and sponsored by Armed Services Chairman
Ike Skelton, a Democrat from Missouri; this law would require the military drawdown to begin in 4 months or 120 days.
