More Attacks On Our First Amendment Rights

Last Sept Laura Berg, a nurse for 15 years for the Veteran's Administration, wrote a letter to the editor critical of the Bush administration. I can't believe the response from the VA.
The agency seized her office computer and launched an investigation. Berg is not talking to the press, but reportedly fears losing her job. (...)

V.A. human resources chief Mel Hooker had said in a Nov. 9 letter that his agency was obligated to investigate "any act which potentially represents sedition," the ACLU said.

What did she say in that letter?
Did she call for someone to assassinate Bush or for a coup to overthrow the govt?
Let's see...
Laura Berg, a clinical nurse specialist for 15 years, wrote a letter in September to a weekly Albuquerque newspaper criticizing how the administration handled Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War. She urged people to "act forcefully" by bringing criminal charges against top administration officials, including the president, to remove them from power because they played games of "vicious deceit." She added: "This country needs to get out of Iraq now and return to our original vision and priorities of caring for land and people and resources rather than killing for oil....Otherwise, many more of us will be facing living hell in these times."...(more)
Amen Laura Berg! She's right on, and NOTHING she wrote should have ever been called into question on grounds of sedition.

We need to throw this dictator wannabe out of office ASAP. Our democracy is at stake.

Via Buzzflash:
"If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck
of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator," Bush joked.

"A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about
it, " [Bush] said.
