First off, this poster is back to the Stone Age of the internet when he continues to howl away at the moonbatz.
This, in light of what it actually represents, which is the will of some educated people in a town in Vermont to hold people accountable for CRIMINAL ACTIONS (oh! my! Can that BE ...????) - then this posting idiot is just cranking up the heat for the benefit of the thought police.
How can we POSSIBILY want accountability from public officials at this late date of 2007? I mean, aren't we just CRAZY to want THAT???
Oh, I guess we'll just sit around another few years and let all the greedsoes run rampant over the planet, and let the Nancy Pelosis and John Conyers of this world sit back and run the entire planet into the stratosphere with nuclear waste, genocide, while drinking Remy and Martels from crystal goblets as the New Year rolls around -- without us uttering so much as a peep in defense of our own morality or for the good of innocent people in Irak.
Good little sheepsies, we must be!!
I am flummoxed by the ignorant ravings of the "right" .. or cointel pro .. I don't know which this one actually is. But I guess in their crowd this doesn't matter .. as long as you can point fingers at anything rather than looking at WHAT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE. A list of war crimes, single-spaced, 10 point type, no top or bottom margins, some 60-pages long, each and every entry cut WAY DOWN ... and people hurt all along the way as each entry is racked up.
Tell me, please, just WHO IS THE MOON BAT??? Too much time on the retired machine's hands? That guy ain't getting a good night's sleep either .. we are tired and tired and tired of trying to get the world to run on a sane basis. There is NOTHING UNHINGED ABOUT THAT. It is choosing the Land of the Living! Truly.

A town in Vermont is seeking arrest warrants for President Bush and Vice President Cheney on war crimes.
Folks, for the second time today, we must remind you that we can’t make this stuff up. These people are truly unhinged.
A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community.
“This petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence, and it draws on that tradition in claiming a universal jurisdiction when governments fail to do what they’re supposed to do,” said Kurt Daims, 54, a retired machinist leading the drive.
As president, Bush has visited every state except Vermont.
The town meeting, an annual exercise in which residents gather to vote on everything from fire department budgets to municipal policy, requires about 1,000 signatures to place a binding item on the agenda.
The measure asks: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictment for consideration by other municipalities?”
Thw town board should tell this collection of unhinged moonbats just exactly where to shove their petition. And in no uncertain terms.
It has far from widespread support, which goes to show that not everyone in Brattleboro is a candidate for the Funny Farm:
“I would not be supportive of it,” said Stephen Steidle, a member of the town’s selectboard, which oversees its government.
“It’s well outside of our ability. From my perspective, the Brattleboro Selectboard needs to focus on the town and the things that need to be done here.”
The unhinged crackpot thinks this little town has the authority to arrest, handcuff, book, fingerprint and put on trial the President and Vice President of the United States. Just exactly where did this rocket scientist study constitutional law?
Neither Bush nor Cheney broke any local ordinances or laws. Period. That’s the extent of their legal jurisdiction. And even the Attorney General of Vermont concurs:
Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell, a Democrat whose office has repeatedly sued the Bush administration over environmental issues, called the move “of very dubious legality.”
“I have not seen the proposal, and I’ve done no legal research on any of the issues,” Sorrell said. “But at first blush, if this passed, they’d have really uphill sledding trying to have it be legal and enforceable.”
People like Daims, so obsessed with hatred of two elected officials, have way too much time on their hands. The article describes him as a “retired machinist” at age 54. Maybe he needs to go back to work. Or find a hobby. Or something.
