For the Love of God, Can't you Make him Stop?!
A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
On President's Day (Feb 20th), Gold Star Families for Peace, Veterans for Peace, and Code Pink are sponsoring an action in Houston, Tx. near the elder Bush's estate called, "For the Love of God. Can't you make him stop?"
We will be demonstrating in front of George, Sr. and Bar's church, St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston from 4pm to 7pm on President's Day on Monday, February 20th. And we have something to say to the Bush family (who apparently send their women to fight their battles): Bring Her On.
Mrs. Bush can read my sign with a big picture of my son, Casey, on it which will read: Your Son Killed My Son, Make him Stop!
George, Sr. says that I will have to deal with "Barbara." Well, SHE will have to deal with me and she will have to deal with: Amy Branham, whose son, Jeremy, was killed while in training to be deployed to Iraq; Juan Torres, whose son, John, was killed in Afghanistan while he was trying to expose the active drug trade on his post; Beatriz Saldivar, whose nephew, Daniel Torres, was killed in Iraq; Dede Miller, whose nephew, Casey, was killed in Iraq; and Bill Mitchell, whose son, Michael, was killed in the same incident in Iraq that my son was killed in.
We have some questions for Barbara so we hope she will come. Here are a few of our questions:
If you think that this war is such a "noble cause" why aren't any of your children, or grandchildren in combat over in Iraq?
Do you think that any of us wanted to trouble our "pretty minds" with images of flag draped coffins? Only for us, they weren't images. They were actual flag draped coffins carrying our dear loved ones. Not only are we troubled by these images, they are imprinted on our hearts and souls forever.
About how much money do you think the Bush family has raped from America over the years from war profiteering?
Did you ever wash Little George's mouth out with soap for lying?
Lately, we have heard from Larry Wilkerson how the intelligence and all of the pre-invasion posturing was a "hoax" how do you think that makes us feel? Our children are dead because of a trick played on the world by your son and his administration.
How many innocent Iraqis have died and how many are your family willing to have die before the travesty in Iraq ends?
I am sure that we will think of many more questions between now and next week.
So, we Gold Star Families for Peace, invite you Mrs. Barbara Bush, to a Tea Party in front of your church on Feb. 20, 2006 at 4pm in the afternoon. Come and "deal" with us. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
We will set an extra place at our Tea Party for Truth for you. Come join us.
