    Default President Bush And Vice President Dick Cheney To Be Arrested Upon Visiting Vermont

    Vt. towns approve Bush 'indictment'

    By JOHN CURRAN, Associated Press Writer


    Voters in two Vermont towns approved measures Tuesday calling for the indictment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for what they consider violations of the Constitution.

    More symbolic than anything, the items sought to have police arrest Bush and Cheney if they ever visit Brattleboro or nearby Marlboro or to extradite them for prosecution elsewhere — if they're not impeached first.

    In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012-1,795. In Marlboro, which held a town meeting on the issue, it was 43-25 with three abstentions.

    "I hope the one thing that people take from this is, 'Hey, it can be done,'" said Kurt Daims, 54, who organized the petition drive that led to the Brattleboro vote.

    The measure in Marlboro isn't binding because it didn't appear on the warning for the meeting, according to Nora Wilson.

    "It was emotional. There were heartfelt speeches on both sides," Wilson said.

    The question put to voters in Brattleboro referred to "crimes against our Constitution" but did not specify the allegations.

    In Brattleboro, a steady stream of voters paraded into the Union High School gym to cast their ballots on a day when school board elections and Vermont's presidential primary were also on the slate.

    Voters interviewed after casting ballots said they saw the article as an opportunity to express their frustration over the war in Iraq and Bush's tenure in general.

    "I realize it's an extreme thing to do, and really silly in a way," said Robert George, 74, a retired photographer. "But I'm really angry about us getting involved in the war in Iraq and him (Bush) disrespecting the will of the people."

    Ian Kelley, 41, a radio DJ, said he didn't vote on the article.

    "It's not a good reflection on the town," he said. "Do I like either of them and would I vote for them? No. But I don't think it's cause to arrest them."

    Barbara Southworth, a 66-year-old nurse, said she would have voted against it.

    "I forgot to vote because it was on the flip side," she said.

    The White House press office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, but a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee denounced the indictment effort.

    "It appears that the left wing knows no bounds in their willingness to waste taxpayer dollars to make a futile counterproductive partisan political point," said Blair Latoff. "Town people would be much better served by elected officials who sought to solve problems rather than create them."

    That about sums it up, although I would love to see the local police try to get past Secret Service to do it.

    It would be rather funny to see the local sheriff try to get through the Secret Service.

    Local Sherriff - We are here to arrest President Bush.
    Secret Service - Bang!!!

    Default How Bout this one!???

    Charlottesville’s show of solidarity with Tibet has drawn the ire of the People’s Republic of China. City Council voted to fly the Tibetan flag over City Hall March 10, the 49th anniversary of China’s invasion of Tibet, Henry Graff reports for NBC29. The Chinese Embassy emailed City Councilors: “The action taken by City Council not only interferes in China’s internal affairs, but also departs from the established policy of the U.S. government against the Tibetan independence.” Mayor Dave Norris vows to hang tough in support of the city’s 66 Tibetan residents, who plan a march through town on Tibetan National Uprising Day. No word on whether Charlottesville will be booted from the Olympics.


    I live in a town 3/4 full of idiots! I mean could this be any more stupid? What a total waste of time, brain power and what an insult to those of us in Cville that want to stay to F*CK out of China's business with Tibet. I apparently am not considered important enough. (I do not hug trees, although I recycle/ I do not protest the war, although I think there may have been a better way to deal with Sadam) What it boils down to in this town is this: if you aren't a bleeding, tree hugging, Jesus questioning liberal well.... your opinion is worth nada!
    Can you tell I'm a bit peeved about this. That whole Arrest thing in Vermont is a absolute trash. Hopefully Cheney will be packin' when he visits and his life will feel threatened (we all know the legal terms for self defense right?)

    I think we should open up a seperate country for all these jackasses. Let them play colonist/seperatist for a few months with no govt support. They'd fold like an old rusty lawn chair!
    *****
    I do not hate liberals BTW, please don't take it that way. I dispise THESE kinds of liberals.

    I'm done, whew I feel better!

    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    Bush should use his line item veto powers to scratch any federal funding that comes across his desk that would be headed to that town. That way, when their infrastructure crumbles and they have no money to pay their police, he can stroll through town and give everyone the bird.

    Bush doesn't have any line-item veto powers.
