3 YEARS
Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq.





At least 2,314 U.S. troops have been killed since the war began
and at least 17,004 have been wounded.

About 37,795 Iraqi civilians have died in the war, although a
study in 2004 found that more than 100,000 civilians could
have died as a result of the war.

HAVE WE HAD ENOUGH YET?

V for Vendetta
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.


This movie looks awesome. Check out the official website and the trailers.

quote:

Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked vigilante known only as "V." Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself--and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.

Freedom in Iraq?
According to Bush and many other war supporters, the Iraqi's are better off now. The girls can go to school and the women are free to walk to streets without fear and get jobs. If only this was true. Next time a war supporter tries to play "we are freeing the Iraqi's" card, send them a link to this article:

quote:


The large number of civilian deaths - many in Baghdad, where 25 percent of the population lives - has created a climate of fear where parents are afraid to send their children to school, women spend their days huddled inside their homes, and husbands send wives and children abroad.





Let Freedom Ring?
(NOTE: The animation linked above was the second animation I had ever made, so it's not as good as my more recent ones, but I still think it applies to this subject.)

Happy Valentines Day!
Happy Valentines Day to everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I have been sick with a virus. Peace Takes Courage is still a one-gal-show, so when I'm sick PTC goes without updates.


So, Cheney shot somebody. Here's what I have to say about it:
BIG DEAL! Please can we have this media attention about the growing amount of evidence against him in the Valerie Plame case? PLEASE! Cheney accidentally shooting someone is actually going to work in his and Bush's favor because it's taking everyone's attention away from the important issues like, oh i don't know, the worsening situation in Iraq, the domestic spying on U.S. citizens, and many more issues our nation is facing.


Contagious Festival Update:
Peace Takes Courage is currently in 7th Place. Help keep PTC in the top 10 by clicking this link: http://ptc.cf.huffingtonpost.com/
and please, please, please post the link in your blog, on a forum you are a member of, or email it out to friends and family. Thanks!


New Animation on the Way:
I'm going to start working a new animation today and hopefully it will be up by the end of this week. Keep a look out for it!

LIVE Blogging: SOTU
8:59 - Waiting for Bush to take the stand... justices are walking in now.. i'm already feeling sick. Wolf Blitzer rambling on CNN and Chris Matthews on MSNBC... I won't even bother to check FOX. I'll stick with C-SPAN.


9:03 - Condi, Rummy, and the rest of the gang are walking in. Alito looks like a ADHD kid on Ritalin. Still waiting on Bush. Laura is standing with her black guy on one side and Afghan woman on the other side. I don't know if I can take this - and Bush hasn't even started speaking yet.


8:05 - Still waiting on Bush. They are probably having problems getting his earpiece to stay in. I'd like the see the Democrats have little or no applause when Bush enters, but somehow, with the cowardly Democrats we have right now, I don't think that is going to happen.


8:06 - Bush coming in now with his fellow Republican cronies from the House and Senate. He has to stop and shake hands and act like he wants to catch up with all the "little people." Dear Lord, Please let the power go out in D.C.


8:08 - He finally made it to the stand. Dang (yeah i'm from the south) HOW LONG ARE THEY GOING TO KEEP CLAPPING? Cheney has his usual evil smirk on his face.


8:10 - Now they are clapping again. wassat


8:12 - He's talking about Coretta Scott King now. Everyone is clapping again. Now's he's babbling on about how it is his "Honor" to lie to America... Ok maybe not those words exactly.


8:13 - He says's the State of the Union is strong... big surprise. WOW his first word tonight - Isolationism
NAILED IT!


8:14 - It's time for 9-11 refrences. And don't forget WMD's, Terrorists, Freedom, and Democracy. I'm gonna hurl.


8:15 - Iraq is better off - women are better off - and their freedom depends on US. They love us there - and they want us to stay. Happy Happy Joy Joy!


8:17 - Terrorists us fear against us. I agree with him on that. He does use fear to control the American people. Now he's saying we love our freedom and we will fight to keep it. Another thing I agree with him on. All Americans need to STAND UP and DEMAND TRUTHFUL ANSWERS!


8:19 - Cue Applause - Bush: "The U.S. will never surrender to Evil." REALLY? I thought we did that back in November 2004.


8:21 - "We are rebuilding Iraq" (really?) The number of Iraqis living below the poverty line has increased since the fall of the regime of Saddam Hussein in 2003 to one-fifth of the population. And, Only 49 of the 136 projects that were originally pledged to improve Iraq's water and sanitation will be finished, with about 300 of an initial 425 projects to provide electricity. "We are proud to their allies." Really, because according to a Zogby poll Majorities of Iraq's Sunni Arabs (82%) and Shiites (69%) favor U.S. forces withdrawing from Iraq.


8:22 - There it is - "I am confident. We are winning." I guess 2,000+ U.S. deaths and "30,000 more or less" Iraqi civilian deaths, counts as winning.


8:25 - Now he is using the "Support Our Troops" card as usual. Apparently, to support our troops you have to support the man who sent them to die when he lied and continues to lie.


8:30 - Now he's preparing for his next war - Iran because they are making Nukuler weapons.


8:30 - He's talking about terrorism again. He's trying to play the fear card again. And there is it - Pass the Patriot Act. If you don't pass the Patriot Act WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!


8:34 - He is defending the warrentless wiretaps now. Apparantly, Grannies Against Bush are a threat to America. We must wiretap fellow Americans (without warrents) because it's best for America. If we don't then the Grannies will attack.


8:38 - Our Economy is good. Don't listen to the Democrats. They don't want Americans to have a good economy. Don't mind the fact that the Bush Admin is spending BILLIONS of dollars on the war that they lied about (although that obviously isn't enough to give the troops armor). Cut taxes. Cut taxes. Make tax cuts permenant.


8:41 - He'll cut the deficit in half by 2009. Don't mind the fact that there wasn't a deficit before Bush came into office. His dad likes him and Clinton (heh heh heh)


8:46 - Buy American. (applause) Secure the borders. (applause) We have made health care affordable (wow.. that actually didn't get hardly any applause). Pass medical liability reform because it doesn't matter if your doctor screws up, you don't deserve any money - accidents happen. (applause)


8:49 - Oil is bad and we should use less (even though the country we invaded has plenty of it - by chance of course.) We will research alternative power sources for cars (although scientists have already discovered bettery alternatives.)


8:52 - America should be creative. No child left behind is wonderful (even though it has cut funding for schools). Kids should learn math and science. "America should become a more hopeful nation". The number of children born to teenage mothers has been falling over the past 10 years. (Boy, that will change now that Alito is on the Supreme Court and Roe v. Wade is out the window.)


8:53 - "Never give into the belief that America is in the decline" - Even though it is.

8:54 - Roberts and Alito are good judges. Thank you to the Senate for confirming them. Thank you Democrats for being cowards. Bye Bye Sandra (applause)


8:56 - Fetus - Embryo - Embryo - Fetus - Unborn child. (applause)


8:57 - Bush and other Republicans are VERY ethical

8:59 - Black people have AIDS. George W. Bush loves Black people. George W. Bush wants to help Black people with AIDS.


9:01 - You should be optimistic of America's future.

God Bless America

On the State of the Union
I'll be live blogging Bush's State of the Union speech tonight. I thought about skipping the speech but I guess I should know what lie(s) bush is telling us this time around. It was three years ago at another Bush State of the Union speech that the President stood before Congress and told us a 16 word lie that caused a war: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

I thought about skipping out on the SOTU address, but decided against it. There is no doubt that I get angry everytime I watch Bush lie to our nation, but it's better to angry than clueless. So I guess I'm watching the SOTU because I'm wondering - "What lie(s) will he tell tonight?"

IF YOU'RE NOT OUTRAGED YOU'RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION!

The List
Below is a list of the 19 Democrats who voted in favor of cloture yesterday. Because of their votes for cloture, Alito is headed towards an easy confirmation. Phone and email them to let them know how angry you are. They won't be getting our votes in the 2006 primaries.

It's Over
It's over and Alito is headed to a easy confimation.

You can thank the so-called "Democrats" in Senate.

quote:

With a vote that broke largely along party lines, the Senate voted Monday to end debate on the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to be the next associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, scuttling the eleventh-hour attempt of some Democrats to block Alito’s confirmation.

With the passage of cloture by a vote of 72-25, a final vote is set for 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday, requiring a simple majority vote. Cloture requires 60 votes.
