Reason #897

I can't even count the reasons why I love the San Francisco Bay Area -- the weather, the restaurants, the beaches, the different characters of the cities...not least of these is the politics. I realize I live in an exceedingly liberal area and it is not in any way, shape or form representative of the country at large. I literally would not survive in a more conservative part of the country. Not that I'm a raving lunatic or anything, I just think everybody should stay out of everybody else's business.

In September 2003 and again in September 2005 the City Council of my little beach town called for an investigation into impeaching Bush and Cheney. Last week the news came out her big sister San Franciso's City Council is working up a resolution calling for the "full investigation, impeachment or resignation'' of those two yokels. Their alleged crimes include:

-- Waging an unnecessary war in Iraq.
-- Authorizing torture of terrorist prisoners.
-- Failing to respond adequately to Hurricane Katrina.
-- And not to be forgotten -- ordering the secret wiretapping of U.S. citizens without a warrant.

Read the entire article at SF Gate if you're interested. Discuss amongst yourselves, and enjoy the tunes. It was 73 today, so sunny and warm D. and I ate our Valentine's Day lunch outside on the restaurant's patio.

Found you via (I can't remember who's) IF blog . . . just wanted to say hello and glad you're a Canadian expat that got it right! I am a former Vancouverite living in . . . Pennsylvania. Not exactly a fair trade.

I love SF, one fav. is Chinatown, I'm a Dim Sum addict.

Some day, some day, I will make it over there. Anywhere that wants to impeach that jackass is good gravy!

I love how liberal SF is, how beautiful it is, how many great restaurants are there.

Can you do something about the housing costs so all of us can move there?

Right on. I LOVE THE BAY AREA! I snatched my hubby from there & hope to move back soon.

You are SO lucky to be living in such a beautiful city, with liberal thinking people. Imagine if all of the US thought that way, perhaps the Bushman would never have been elected in the first place.
