Regime Change Begins at Home

Michael Moore is my new hero. It would have been easy for him to accept his first Oscar and gush about how much he owed his producer, et al; but he chose to shoulder his responsibility to speak out against the war. The fact that he wasn't allowed to continue is too bad, but beside the point.
I was fortunate enough to hear a recording of the entire speech, which he delivered a few days later. The man is funny and apparently fearless. We need more entertainers and high-profile people with the courage to take on greedy bastards.
"TIME'S UP!" Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney, Mr. Rumsfield, Mr. Ashcroft, etc.

My first post; more to follow. Consider it a threat.
So, it's like I don't spend enough time in front of a computer screen already, right? I'm a web developer and spend 8-10 hours a day with my butt in a chair and my hands on a keyboard or mouse. But I'm curious about Blogger's tools.
More importantly, I'm frustrated with the political "leadership" we're stuck with for at least the next two years. Perhaps by November 2004 enough people will understand the damage that's been done to our diplomatic relations with other countries, our safety and well-being, and our constitutional freedoms, and we'll be able to vote the bums out. (I suppose it's too much to expect that he'll be voted out for issuing orders which result in the killing and maiming of scores—who can guess the number before this invasion and occupation is over?—of innocents. Too many of us seem to accept this part of war, apparently having lost our ability to empathize.)
Regime change, like charity, begins at home.
