perata is trying to busheet: i.e. double speak
perata is attempting to put a resolution on the california ballot for the presidential primaries in over a year from now that will vote to end the occupation of iraq - the bill looks FANTASTIC except it is busheet - perata is appearing to be anti-war when he is really doing it way too late - and not where he really has power, which is in the state senate - if he presented this as a bill for the senate to pass, then he would be another one of our greatest heroes!
this is my response to him:
senator perata - this is a weak, bunk attempt at pretending you are against the war - this is one of those many political instances when you 'appear' to be anti-war while you are NOT.
is this really the very best you can do? if it is, we will work to make sure you are defeated in your next election attempt or at the very least recalled.
do you really think putting a resolution on the ballot that will not begin to go into effect almost TWO years from now has any genuine impact on ending war NOW?
why don't you really stand up, pretend that the u.s. soldiers and the iraq people who are being killed TODAY are your family members, or even you yourself! then act accordingly.
why are you willng to allow the deaths of at least hundreds of u.s. soldiers and hundreds of thousands if not more iraqis to be on your hands?
if you really think a resolution is the way to go, why don't you call for a special california election NOW! we certainly were able to pull that off immediately when arnie pulled his coup!
PLEASE, senator perata - if you have ANY consciousness at all, PLEASE do this IMMEDIATELY!
Peace, Zanne Sam Joi - one of your constituents - who speaks for several thousand of your constituents!
