New group wants Bush out
The Daily Texan (UT paper) ^ | 10/17/2005 | Jimmie Collins

Posted on 10/17/2005 10:16:39 AM PDT by WestTexasWend

Organization hands out fliers, graffitis to get message out - There are only 16 days until the beginning of the end of the Bush regime, according to the World Can't Wait, a new political organization. The Austin chapter plans to be on campus and around town handing out fliers and actively advertising their cause.

"This administration does not represent us ... even though they say they do," said Sonya Morales, head of the Austin chapter.

Today marks the fifth day of encampment outside the White House counting down to Nov. 2, the day WCW has organized protest marches in 40 cities and college campuses across the nation. Nov. 2 is also the one-year anniversary of President Bush's re-election to office.

"We're not just going to be the same old people sitting at tables on the West Mall," Josh Waldman, an Austin WCW member, said. "We're going to be making noise and getting attention."

Advocates of the organization have spray-painted information regarding the WCW Web site and its motto, "Resist or Die," on buildings and sidewalks on or near the UT campus.

Because the offenses occurred at an institution of higher education the graffiti "is considered a state jail felony," said Sgt. Leigh Glass, a spokeswoman at UTPD. The department will be investigating the owners of the Web site to find out who committed the crime. Morales said the organization does not advocate the graffiti but that it is an indication the organization is inspiring people.

According to WCW, the march is only one event in a string of others meant to change the current political climate to one similar to that during the Vietnam War.

"We want to bring things back to that type of movement," Waldman said.

While WCW's goal is to drive Bush's administration out of office, they admit that may not immediately happen.

"The office is built specifically so the president could ignore public opinion," said David Prindle, a UT government professor.

Public opinion polls as of Thursday showed 38 percent of the country believes Bush is doing a good job.

"Bush is not setting any records in unpopularity, but it is very difficult to remove a president from office," Prindle said.

"A Republican congress is not going to impeach Bush unless he's caught committing felonies in the White House," Prindle said. "Nothing in his character suggests he would resign ... and barring a stroke or cerebral hemorrhage, I don't see Cheney removing him from office."

Apparently this bunch has defaced a lot of the UT campus with spray paint since last Wednesday.

Strike back by cheering for Texas Tech this Saturday! :) GUNS UP!!!

Uh, yes he does. Says so right here in the Constitution. You may not like it, you are going to have to suck it up anyway. Don't these people have lives?

Oh sorry, rhetorical question.

These people seem particularly stupid - have they stopped to think about who becomes President if anything (God forbid) should happen to President Bush?

And that even if Cheny didn't want a second term then he would be in a positition to appoint a new VP and he he could help that person get another 4-8 years?


But that said, it's not going to be helpful to prosecute political graffiti on campuses as jail felonies... it will make up look like China.

psychosis [sy.KO.sis] (n).

“The inability to distinguish between what is real and what is imaginary. Psychosis is a term used to describe a severe mental illness. Psychotics are characterized by a variety of symptoms that most people consider abnormal. These include experiencing delusions, such as the notion that one is being persecuted or conspired against. Psychotics may see things which don't actually exist and hear Voices (i.e. God) when no one is around. They often exhibit compulsive, irrational, ritualized behavior, esp. when such behavior serves no purpose or is even harmful or disruptive to those around them. They show no concern for others but may exhibit total self-centered behavior. Includes sociopathy, schizophrenia.”

This is the really funny part: If (God forbid) anything would happen to Pres. Bush, we'd have Pres. Cheney, and if this bunch of wackos think he'd be a wimp on the GWOT, they've got another think coming.

Like the Clinton Klan represented Conservatives when they were in office? Get over it. You ran 2 wooden facsimili's for the Presidency instead of human beings. You take extremist stances and claim they are what the "people" want, and then whine when the "people" kick you out of office.

I'd rather see the perps put to work with turpentine and toothbrushes. Make 'em clean up their own mess - it would probably be the first time many of them had been held accountable for something they had done.

ACTUALLY attend your classes for just one day wacko clowns.. Ask your Professor "What is a Constitutional Republic"? Be sure to have an appointment scheduled with a competent mental health professional immediately after since the shock of encountering reality may do irreparable harm.

Oh, I don't know, any group that can get a bunch of know-it-all leftist college kids to actually get off their butts and do something like spraypaint public buildings can't be all bad, can they? / sarc

Besides, I predict they will be successful. In fact, I'm seeing the day clearly.. in my head... forming... forming... yes! On January 20, 2009, they will have been successful in removing President Bush from office! Mark it down. You read it here first!

Right you are Steven. He most certainly was.


I was referring to the Marines being under the Department of the Navy and how they get miffed when they are called "sea going bell hops".


A big Semper Fi to all my Marine Corps brothers!

Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

Your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it.

Your government puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

In an aside, we should see a good game this weekend.

When the President starts following the Constitution, he will represent us. Not before. And if you are going to pretend to be an authority on the Constitution, and lecture others on it, you should at least read it.

Your reasoning is flawed. Did you flunk logic? The President is the President.

Did FDR follow the Constitution? What about LBJ? What about most of our Presidents, especially the modern ones? If they failed to follow the Constitution, they were still the President. In the sense that they are the President, they do indeed represent the collective votes of the American people and are duly sworn in to act as the Chief Executive.

You can whine all day that "they don't represent us because ________________________". Constitutionally, they DO. Get over it.

Oh, that's right. You have read the Constitution. That makes you the decider of all that's right and true. NOT.

No, and they did not represent us. They represented Socialism, which is TYRANNY!

>>>What about most of our Presidents, especially the modern ones? If they failed to follow the Constitution, they were still the President.<<<

And they are still Tyrants, which means (in any logical mind) that they represented themselves, not us.

>>>In the sense that they are the President, they do indeed represent the collective votes of the American people and are duly sworn in to act as the Chief Executive.<<<

They are elected according to principles enumerated in our Constitution. If they ignore it as soon as they are in power, they are tyrants!

God help us...
