Imagine knowing you are going to die

I can’t imagine knowing your going to die…It’s a possibility anytime even if you just get “pushed around.” Even if you “only” grab her by the arms there is always a sharp corner where you can get hurt, there always is the loss of hope that destroys a man like this.

when you loose hope…you have nothing else to loose, you don’t value your life….why would they value your’s??

Please please wake up if they really loved you they would change or not do it. IT is NOT love..get out.

Quick notice

This is a bulletin about Bush, Impeachement and the lies he said to start a war.

If your not interested, don’t want to know, or don’t believe stop reading now~ Holly

Top 30 Reasons Why GWB Should Be Impeached

George Bush Should be Impeached

Bush has committed several acts which justify impeachment. Click on the link for more details.

  1. Bush lied to Congress and the American public about the reasons for invading Iraq.
  2. Bush conducted illegal wiretaps of American citizens.
  3. Bush violated International Law by invading a sovereign country for illegal purposes.
  4. Bush violated the Geneva Convention by torturing prisoners of war.
  5. Bush held prisoners without formal charges and without legal representation. [1]
  6. Bush used government funds for domestic political propaganda. [NYT] [2]
  7. The Bush team used uniformed military personnel for Republican party political purposes. [1] [2]
  8. Bush was negligent in his slow response to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
  9. Bush shows contempt towards our Constitution and our democratic ideals.

Bush Misled America about the Threat from Iraq

If Saddam Hussein was an immediate and serious threat to America, as the White House claimed, then Bush might have been justified in invading Iraq. But it appears that Bush misled the public, the Congress and the UN by consistently overstating the threat from Iraq. By lying to Congress, Bush violated US Laws related to Fraud and False Statements, Title 18, Chapter 47, Section 1001 and Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, Title 18, Chapter 19, Section 371.

  • Lie ..1 – Uranium from Niger – Bush said “The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.” in his State of the Union Address.
  • Lie ..2 – Iraq and 9/11 – Bush led people to believe that Iraq was involved with 9/11 by repeatedly linking them in his speaches. This was so effective that at one point 70f Americans actually believed Saddam was behind 9/11. Bush has since admitted that this was not true.
  • Lie ..3 – Congress Knew – Bush has stated that Congress had access to all the same information that the White House had. Thus he should not be blamed for making the mistake of going to war. But Bush was briefed many times about the falsehood of various stories and this information never reached Congress. [ZNet]
  • Lie ..4 – Aluminum Tubes – Bush, Cheney, Rice and Powell said that aluminum tubes Iraq attempted to buy were intended for use in a uranium centrifuge to create nuclear weapons. These were the only physical evidence he had against Iraq. But it turns out this evidence had been rejected by the Department of Energy and other intelligence agencies long before Bush used them in his speeches. [NYTimes] [MotherJones] [CNN]
  • Lie ..5 – Iraq and Al Qaeda – Bush still insists that there was a “relationship” between Iraq and Al Qaeda. But the 9/11 Commission released a report saying, among other things, that there was no “collaborative relationship” between Al Qaeda and Iraq. The nature of the relationship seems to be that Al Qaeda asked for help and Iraq refused. Al Qaeda was opposed to Saddam Hussein because Saddam led a secular government instead of an Islamic government. [ZNet] [CNN]
  • Lie ..6 – Weapons of Mass Destruction – Bush insisted that Iraq posessed weapons of mass destruction but his “evidence” consisted mostly of forged documents, plagiarised student papers, and vague satellite photos. The United Nations was on the ground in Iraq and could find nothing. After extensive searches Bush was finally forced to admit that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction.
  • Lie ..7 – Mobile Weapons Labs – Bush and his team repeatedly claimed that Iraq posessed mobile weapons labs capable of producing anthrax. Colin Powell showed diagrams of them at his speech before the UN to justify invading Iraq. These claims originated from Curveball, a discredited Iraqi informer who fed Bush many of the stories related to WMD. On May 29, 2003, two small trailers matching the description were found in Iraq. A team of bio-weapons experts examined the trailers and concluded they were simply designed to produce hydrogen for weather balloons. But, for over a year, Bush claimed these were part of Iraq’s bio-weapons program. The expert’s report was suppressed and only recently made public. [WashPost]
  • Lie Factory – The Secret Propaganda Team – Bush wanted so much to convince people of the need to invade Iraq that the White House set up a secret team in the Pentagon to create evidence. The Office of Special Plans routinely rewrote the CIA’s intelligence estimates on Iraq’s weapons programs, removing caveats such as “likely,” “probably” and “may” as a way of depicting the country as an imminent threat. They also used unreliable sources to create reports that ultimately proved to be false. [Mother Jones] [New Yorker] [Wikipedia]

Bush Conducted Illegal Wiretaps of American Citizens

Bush has admitted to authorizing the NSA, a secretive spy agency, to conduct warrantless wire taps on American citizens. The spying even extends to postal mail. The NSA has also been collecting phone records in an attempt to build a database of every phone call that is made.

Latest News: 8/18/06 – In response to a lawsuit filed by the ACLU, US District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that the wiretaps are unconstitutional.

  1. The Bush wiretaps violated US law because he was required to get approval from FISA. He can start a wiretap of a suspected terrorist at any time but must then seek approval to continue within 72 hours.
  2. Attorney General Gonzales claims HJR114 gave Bush authority to conduct the wiretaps. But HJR114 only grants use of the “Armed Forces”. HJR114 does not explicitly suspend the Constitution. Also HJR114 requires “The President shall, at least once every 60 days, submit to the Congress a report on matters relevant to this joint resolution, including actions taken pursuant to the exercise of authority granted in section 3”. Congress was not notified of these wiretaps. [HJR114]
  3. Bush may have bypassed FISA because he wanted to listen to and analyze all international signals, not just those of suspected terrorists. He knew this was blatantly illegal so he hid it. Bush says “We use FISA still. But FISAs is for long-term monitoring. What is needed in order to protect the American people is the ability to move quickly to detect.” Then later “There is a difference between detecting, so we can prevent, and monitoring. And it’s important to note the distinction between the two.” The distinction is that “detecting” requires listening to lots of calls with a computer to see if someone says certain keywords like “bomb” in Arabic, or maybe even “impeach Bush” in English. Monitoring is listening to a specific suspected terrorist. The problem with detection is that you have to listen to all calls, including yours and mine. [This NY Times article confirms this interpretation. Also CNN.]
  4. More evidence that Bush wants to listen to all signals is in Bob Woodward’s book “Bush at War,” on page 303. ” Bush summarized his strategy: ‘Listen to every phone call and close them down and protect the innocents.'” [WaPost]
  5. Investigators may have found that Bush applied for an expansion of wiretap capability from FISA, was rejected, and then went ahead and did it anyway. [FindLaw] [FAS]
  6. Bush claims going through FISA is too slow but legal emergency wiretaps helped capture terrorist Mosquera.
  7. According to a report in USA Today, the NSA is collecting the phone records of tens of millions of Americans – most of whom aren’t suspected of any crime. The agency’s goal is “to create a database of every call ever made” within the nation’s borders. The stated goal is to be able to identify who is involved in a network of terrorists. But this same technique can be used to determine who is involved in a network of political activists who might, for example, oppose the Bush administration. Under Section 222 of the Communications Act, first passed in 1934, telephone companies are prohibited from giving out information regarding their customers’ calling habits. All of the major telecommunications companies cooperated with this program except for Qwest. Joe Nacchio, CEO of Qwest, was troubled by the fact that there was no FISA approval and that the program was so pervasive.
  8. 8/18/06 – In response to a lawsuit filed by the ACLU, US District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that the wiretaps are unconstitutional.

Notes

It is ironic that Bush prevented the FBI and other Investigators from investigating possible terrorist links by the Bin Laden family prior to 9/11.

Impeachment for Violating International Law

George Bush has committed war crimes in violation of the UN Charter and the Nuremberg Charter.

Synopsis: Bush attacked Iraq, against the decisions of the United Nations, and thus violated the UN Charter. Planning and committing a war of aggression is a violation of the Nuremberg Charter. According to the US Constitution these international treaties are part of the “supreme Law of the Land”. Bush has violated the Nuremberg Charter and the UN Charter and is, therefore, subject to impeachment.

UN & Nuremberg Charters part of “the supreme Law of the Land”

Article VI of the US Constitution states that:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;”

Because Bush violated International Laws that we agreed to by treaty, then he is also violating the supreme Law of the Land which is an impeachable offense. Note that it says “or which shall be made” so treaties signed after the Constitution was adopted are still covered.

Violation of The United Nations Charter

Chapter 1, Article 2 of the UN Charter states:

3.All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.
4.All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.

Bush lied to the UN and to Congress about the seriousness of the threat from Iraq, and invaded Iraq in defiance of a vote from the UN Security Council. His actions inflamed the Arab world and set a dangerous precedent for any other country that wants to defy the UN and start their own war.

Violation of the Nuremberg Charter

Principle Vl of the Nuremberg Charter states:

The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under; international law:
a. Crimes against peace:
i. Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or
a war in
violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
ii .Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment
of any
of the acts mentioned under (i).

Bush’s invaded a sovereign country that had not threatened the United States and had no ability to do so. Bush had been making plans to invade Iraq even before 9/11.

Argulets and Talking Points

Bush Violated the Geneva Convention by Torturing Prisoners

On 6/22/04 Bush saidWe do not condone torture. I have never ordered torture. I will never order torture. The values of this country are such that torture is not a part of our soul and our being.” Is that true?

The evidence below shows that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Gonzales are guilty of violating “Federal Torture Act” Title 18 United States Code, Section 113C, the UN Torture Convention and the Geneva Convention by ordering and condoning the use of torture.

  1. 1/25/02 – White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales wrote a memo advising the President of “the threat of domestic criminal prosecution under the War Crimes Act,” a federal statute, for torturing prisoners. He advised Bush to invent a legal technicality –declaring detainees in the “war on terror” to be outside the Geneva Conventions –which, he said, “substantially reduces” the chance of prosecution. Gonzales was later promoted to US Attorney General. [Nation]
  2. 2/7/02 – Bush took Gonzales’ advice and signed an order declaring that members of Al Qaeda and the Taliban are not covered by the Geneva Convention. This gave the green light for torture and illegal detainment of prisoners.
  3. Bush moves prisoners to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and holds them for years without charges, trials, or access to lawyers. This is ruled illegal by a Federal Judge on Jan 31, 2005.
  4. Bush sets up secret prisons run by the CIA in foreign countries to escape US laws against torture. Rice claims European countries supported this plan. [WashingtonPost] [CNN] [FindLaw]
  5. 9/26/02 – Canadian Maher Arar was arrested at JFK airport and sent to secret prison in Syria for torture under “extraordinary rendition” program. He was released a year later without charges. He sued the US government but the suit was dismissed by a federal judge David Trager on 2/17/06 citing the need for secrecy. He wrote, “One need not have much imagination to contemplate the negative effect on our relations with Canada if discovery were to proceed in this case and were it to turn out that certain high Canadian officials had, despite public denials, acquiesced in Arar’s removal to Syria.” Thus the reason for the secrecy is not for national security but simply to avoid embarassing guilty parties in government. This sets a dangerous precedent that may allow Bush to kidnap and torture anyone he pleases. (Search CNN for news of this case and find nothing!) [Wikipedia]
  6. Dec ’02 – Alberto J. Mora, the general counsel of the United States Navy, tried to halt what he saw as a disastrous and unlawful policy of authorizing cruelty toward terror suspects. His 2004 memo details his unsuccessful struggle with the White House to stop the torture. [NewYorker]
  7. 12/31/03 – German national Khaled al-Masri says he was abducted by the CIA arrested in Macedonia and flown to Afghanistan. He was then tortured for five months and released. CIA has admitted making a mistake in this case.
  8. April 2004, photos of prisoners being tortured at Abu Ghraib prison make headlines around the world. Low ranking soldiers are convicted of torture charges, falling on their swords for the White House. [Wikipedia] [NewYorker]
  9. October 2005, Senator McCain adds an amendment to a defense bill that would outlaw torture by the United States. Bush and Cheney fight this tooth and nail to block this amendment but eventually give in after the McCain amendment is weakened by the Graham-Levin amendment. When Bush signs the bill he adds a signing statement that basically says he can ignore the prohibition against torture under his powers as “unitary executive” and “Commander in Chief “.
  10. 6/29/06 – Supreme Court rules in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld that the Geneva Convention applies to prisoners at Guantanamo.

too leave or not too leave?

What if your at a park with your child one day and pick up a ball or a juice cup, or look at a magazin only to realize in horror a few seconds later your child is gone?

What if your daughter has had some arguments with her partner and all of a sudden she “disappears”?

What if your daughter doesn’t have arguments, and likewise disappears?

what do you do? Do you go home, stay home, look for them?

How can you ? Where would you go? What if they come to your house or back to the park? What if your in one place when they are in another?

This is a nightmare that many parents are living, have lived and or will face.

Imagine walking that line of resignation, hope and desesperation all the time.

As a mother that would be torturous to my soul.

Wondering if your child is alive, fed, mistreated or murdererd. The percentages scream murder after 48 hours…..M*U*R*D*E*R*…..No parent wants to ever imagine that. No  parent wants their child to be missing or killed.

How do you tell a parent of a missing child their isn’t enough “funds” to continue “the search”. How do you tell a parent to go home or try to get some sleep? How can we, as a society, expect them to ever “return to normal”…..would we?

This is just a small blog to get us thinking. To maybe, just maybe, influence you to look at the ‘have you seen me’ mail for a few seconds more. PLease take the time to care, take the time to realize how devastating these parents lives have been made. Time to think before we speak and act, so before you throw away that “have you seen me” piece of mail take the time to think what if that was my child? look for a few more seconds, think about it, then look again.

Please contact any of the offices below for more tips or to report a missing or found person.

The Great Death Penalty Debate

***Read Disclaimer and Warning before posting a reply****

A personal struggle of mine.

I am pro-life to an extent. I hate the war because how can you send normal (non-murderers) people to kill people, to teach other people, killing is wrong?

However, by the same token. When is enough, enough?!?

We, America, are very tolerant of too much, yet way too incredulous and blind sighted in many other things.(hint= ongoing war, other nationalities, and cultures)

I feel we have way too many opportunities for people to cop out of their responsiblities. For example, oh…say…MURDER. Lawyer says “You’r honor so-and-so was NOt in their full mental capacities when they stabbed so -and-so 12 times”…..hmmm No crap Sherlock. Anger is known to derail rational train of thought.

I get angry ALL the time, I don’t go and murder people. Of course they were out of there reasonable functions hence why the Penal system was created. We have general society for the rest of us who do not behave savagely when angered.

Now to the meat of this blog. While searching under grieving and Domestic Violence articles I ran accross at least 3 “protests” to the Death Penalty. Okay, here is the dilema. As a grieving Parent I wish that on No One, no parent, at all. Murderers have parents. Who am I to decide who lives? However, as Aunt to a 2 year old with no mother, and sister to a savagely murdered woman I have questions.

I have a inner battle with this, a BIG one. One second I want these savages to live and Suffer knowing what the finished result of their massacre was. However, why should we, Tax Paying, Law Abiding, Non-Murdering Citizens pay for it?

That is a double slap to the face. Not only o murderers ruin lives, but the very lives they ruined have to live knowing a portion of their taxes support these criminals lives. Anyhow, On these petitions to save these murderers lives, there are quotes from the bible, their families, and friends, and the murderers. Where is our quotes? Where are the murdered families quotes and stories? Who asked us permission before our family member was murdered? My sister wasn’t allowed to live after begging them not too kill her.My sister wasn’t offered her favorite meal, and a sterile, comfortable, peaceful environment. My sister, and countless other homicide victims, were NOT offered a Cumbaya song, a jesus loves you and a last goodbye.

As a matter a fact Raping pedophiles who slaughter their prey are “ill” and “need help”. Okay, obviously, but where were the poor innocent victims help?

There is stories of the ripple of effects that the convicted murderers lives and families lives will have. All it will destroy, if they are executted.

Well where is The VICTIMS stories?!? Where is the story of the baby who was shot? Where is the story of how now there is one more messed up child to grow up parentless? where is the story of how we can’t lay down at night because we see the bloody mattres…or how we can’t erase our loved ones phones numbers out of our cell phones, or how about how we can’t go no where without being questioned if we “really” think so-and-so “did it” or asked about the murder or legal process?! Where is our story and protest?!?

Nobody had the curtosy to ask me if I wanted my sister to die. She wasn’t given a notice, a last meal, a last visit.

okay.woosah….calm down. This really was NOT supposed to be about me.

(returns to subject at hand)

Why do we hear so much about the killers and so little about their victims? Why is it that the heinous acts they committed are so conveniently ommited? I am a God fearing person. I believe in God and therefore don’t believe in murder, God gives life, not I, but if I’m pro-death what does that make me? Where do I stand?

I have so many conflicting views on this subject. I don’t believe we should go around serving death sentences at every “murder”. For example if a murderer accidently (by hitting them too hard or in the wrong place or accidently) killed a person then depending on the circumstances of that victims death, that should be the Killers sentence.

However singing Kumbaya, chanting Jesus loves you so a particularily heinous murderer doesn’t get LEGALLY executed isn’t exatly what God had in his intentions when he said “forgive thy brother”….or is it?

By the same token, isn’t it heinous that as a nation we still have killings? This is a barbaric act. Thou killed so thy shall kill you. hmmm I’m not too sure about that.

I think if we were too serve swift, quick punishments we will see a trickle effect of barbaric killings dwindling. Think about it…..if killers can’t plead mantal insanity, and get easier “hospital stay” jail time they’ll just cop out, or “tattle” on their accomplices and still get away with less than they deserve.

When will we stop providing irresponsible people cop outs? We are all handed negatives in life, some of us make pictures out of them. Why should people be treated differently? Okay their childhood sucked….well a Lot of peoples did too….I’m not a criminal, or a drug addict, drunk, racist and I was hardly raised perfectly.

The truth is people need cop outs and excuses so they can justify their meaningles existence or their horrible, senseless actions.

In the words of Martin Luther King “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.

Having somebodies child, son, uncle, cousin, or sister legally executed is still hurting their family. It’s still an injustice, so what do we do?! Someone is going to suffer. In all reality, personally, yes back to me, hey it’s my blog.., Any horrible thing that can happen to my sisters murderer is NOT going to change what happened to her. It’s NOT going to bring her back, it’s not going to change what and how it was done to her and US.

Executions should still be legal though. You have child rapist/mutilators, savage serial killers, and personal cases such as mine. If murderers felt they were going to suffer or die maybe, Just MAYBE, we would begin to see a trickle effect of murders dwindling down. Think about it.

What are your views or opinions on the Death Penalty?

What is your opinion on the blog?

**dedicated to all the victims of homicide and my Sister Brenda**

**Disclaimer and WARNING**

Abuse, threats, name calling too other replies by other members or visitors will be deleted. I am Not suggesting I want to become a murderer nor insinuating this should be criminals or a particular persons demise, I am just speaking of the great debate. I am not high School drama promoter, take that elsewhere, this is NOT that type of Blog. If you have an opinion, post it by all means and or your thoughts. ~ Holly

Myspace…..

myspace is currently the world’s fifth most popular English-language website, the fifth most popular website in any language.

It is a FREE site in which profiles, pictures, videos, friends, and family can express themselves and keep in touch.

Myspace is still (mistakingly) thought of as a ‘teenager or dating’ site. It’s original purpose WAS to bring people together and maybe Dating. However, I know of NO ONE who uses myspace to actually find a long term partner.

MySpace is a social network. However as of lately, it has become a haeven for awareness, non profit organizations, “angel” or memorial sites, and a slew of many other causes including music, books, and not limited to even murder and or Domestic Violence Awareness.

Which, brings me to the purpose of my writting this blog.

There is a whole movement going on in the “myspace world” to spread Domestic Violence Awareness or DV as I will most likely refer to it during this blog and throughout my site.

Is it such an amazement that myspace is being used for this??

I mean, afterall, myspace IS designed to help like-minded individuals and organizations connect and share information, social networks are showing promise as low-cost, high-impact marketing channels because they are both highly visited and highly targeted. Hence the question, why not?

I personally think this is wonderful. Especially considering many young teens are so vulnerable, and in “relationships” often do NOT know how to recognize the first signs of Abuse, or realize how dangerous this truly is.

Sites like Murdered Domestic Violence and Domestic Violence Is A Crime! Are truly realistic, not sugar coated, helpful, resourceful and empowering! What a better tool than myspace to reach thousands?

There are many, many such myspace pages like these. I will be posting some of them throughout the blog.

What exactly is Domestic Violence? “Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, assault, battery, sexual assault or other abusive behavior permitted by an intimate partner against another. It is an epidemic affecting Americans in all communities, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality, or educational background”. Excerpt taken from here.

There is so much that DV covers. It can be an intimidating glance, a slap, a threat, rape,…wait, rape? YES rape. Your husband, boyfriend, partner CAN rape you. Just becuase you have willingly had relations before or just because you are “his” does NOT give them the right to take that from you. Dv is also hiding your keys, disabling your car batteries, taking your cell phone, throwing items to intimidate you. Yelling at you, and all around just making your personal safety feel questioned and threatned.

Women, or even men, reading this, I beg you if you feel a “dread’ a a heaviness in your chest, a sigh escapy your throat, a shiver up the back of your neck, start planning your escape now. Plan quietly, plan Safetly, and tread VERY carefully. Please visit HERE for stories of other people who were in your situation or for advice and tips.

I’d like to add a disclaimer here, myspace is a social networking site. The profiles I linked to are REAL people sharing their real time and knowledge with, at times, their personal opinions and biases. If you are in a dangerous relationship do NOT rely on the fact that you read a couple of awareness links I gave here. Go deeper contact the numbers on these sites. Call your local shelter. Most importantly BE SAFE.

Here are a few links to some outstanding myspace pages.

There are MANY more great ones out there, however for convenience purposes I only linked a few.

Abuse IS Real

You can’t Change What you Don’t Acknowledge

Angels of Domestic Violence

Murdered Victims of Domestic Violence

Survivors/Victims of Domestic Violence

So in conclusion to my original reason for posting, Myspace is JUST a tool.

Just as we choose our clothing, manners, vocabulary, and ourselves throughout the day has an impact on how and what comes our way, so does myspace behavior.

*words of wisdom from me*

If you can do a favor for someone today, make someone smile, or just enjoy the day, DO IT. When we all leave this life we are NOT taking nothing with us . All that will remain is what we were, our actions, deeds, our memories and the dread that was replaced with a smile that we brought today ~ Holly G. O.

What is it about murder?

That draws out the compassion, or the worse in us?

What is it about murder that makes complete strangers ask the grieving family, how, who, what, why, and how are they sure?

What is it about murder that makes the work of grieving that much harder to bear?

 I was browsing through a couple of sites today, (as usual) and was reading through the blogs at http://www.myspace.com/i_am_a_phoenix_rising

and on  Home Sweet Home here at wordpress.

I then decided NOT to make this Blog about me just keeping a journal, but instead, as a way for us to connect, for other people with the same question, for victims of violent crimes.

A place to share knowledge, thoughts, tips, grief, anger and maybe even interest.

I also work with grieving Parents in my personal time so there will be quite a LOT of tips, blogs, and links to forums for grieving parents here also.

Is a murder by a violent “EX” still considered a DV murder?

I am of the strong opinion of yes.

It doesn’t matter, In My Humble Opinion, if they have been separated for years or months. If the woman (most likely but NOT always) was abused at his hands, or his actions and words and he comes back to kill her later down the line, it’s still a result of D.omestic V.iolence to me.

 I have a LOT of opinions on thses issues, I also want to hear your views and opinions on this do you think and agree with me?…if so why? If you Do not agree, thats okay also, feel free to post a civilzed, respectful reason and I promise to communicate with you on the matter.
