My First Petition Ever
WITH HELP FROM Clement Clarke Moore and
Rima E. Laibow, MD
T'was the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, they all were too soused
With toxic compoents of deadly vaccines
To control populations these are excellent means.
The Children we nestled all snug in their beds
While vapors of mercury damaged their heads
The doc in his smock and the nurse in her cap
Were newly empowered to inject kids with more crap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter
Away to the journal I flew like a flash

Tore open the wrapper and scanned table of trash
The print on the paper, all glossy and bright
Gave the luster of science to the drug company hype
When what to my wondering eyes should be seen
But a company study on how safe are vaccines
With a famous first author, so very renowned
I was totally convinced because his name I found.
More soothing than opera, more comfort I gained
And he skewed all the data, and called them by name:

"Now, Measles! Now Tetanus! Now Pertussus and Meningitis!
On Mumps! On Human Papilloma! On Reubella, On Hepatitis!

To the top of the charts, to the top of the census
Now vaccinate! vaccinate! Vaccinate all! must be the consensus!"

As dry tears before the autism behavioral spectrum fly,
When a parent's tears are all shed, no tears left to cry.
When doctors mislead, because they are misled,
And lives are destroyed because neurons are dead
Not from dangers unknown, but from profits protected,
And rights trampled down and freedom neglected.

As I shook off the "pseudo" that enwrapped the junk "science"
I did some clear thinking about the logic's defiance
The great man's first authorship was "science for hire"
His reputation was tarnished: the great man was a liar.

A bundle of vaccines he had flung on his back,
He looked like a snake oil salesman just opening his pack.
His eyes - how they twinkled! If every one takes them,
Vaccines are a money machine - if you make them!
Of course, there are problem of autism and death,
Just deny all the science, tell parents their crazy and then hold your breath;
 'Cause the propaganda machine is working just right,
And the lobbying money gleams bright in the night;

New Jersey, the home of Corporate Merck,
Has a commissioner who'll sign, while smirking a smirk
Clever elf, the commissioner, knows he's not staying
After December. Just who will be paying?

A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
His kid's not autistic: He's got nothing to dread!
He said for the good of all moms who work,
He wants them injected with products by Merck,
And laying a finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the corporate ladder he rose;

He finished his job, to his team gave a whistle,
And the spent needles flew like a poisonous thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, e're he took year-end flight,

"Vaccinations to All, Autism's all right!"

                             An Overdue Visit

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the nation
Friends of Freedom knew it was a special occasion.
Lady Liberty stood taller just off the shore
Her torch shining brighter than a few weeks before

But it wasn't the flame turning her cheeks all rosy
It was thoughts of Snowe, Feingold and Nancy Pelosi
And leaders from every side of the aisle
Who would soon bring the Bill of Rights back into style.

The Amendments had all hurried out of their beds -
Which was no easy task, they were nearly in shreds -
And they rushed to the window on papery feet
As a jolly old man flew right over their street.

"Could it be!?" they inquired as the roof shook and trembled
And they crept toward the mantle, peaceably assembled,
Just as someone emerged from the chimney with flair
In a shiny red suit, with a shock of white hair

And a top hat, and pants all in red, white and blue -
"Wait a minute," the Amendments exclaimed, "Who are you?"
"Don't be frightened my children," he said, "it's no scam.
"You can't have forgotten your old Uncle Sam!"

"Holy crap!" said Free Speech.
"Stop right there!" yelled Bear Arms
And Privacy cried "Who shut off the alarms?!"
The Fifth remained silent, but Uncle Sam said
"We've been having some trouble, but Freedom's not dead."

The Amendments were cautious. "It's just been so long
"We've seen Liberty lost, we've seen so much go wrong.
"The President's trying to mangle and warp us,
"The Fourth is in tatters, so's Habeas Corpus!"

The old man sat down - he had had quite a ride -
But he told them "Don't worry, the Law's on our side,
"'Cause the nation's fed up and more people are crying
"For Justice and an end to illegal spying,

"And secret abductions by the CIA,
"And laws that would take women's choices away,
"And Gitmo tribunals and secret detention,
"And other intrusions too numerous to mention -

" "Not so fast," said a grinchity voice from above
And Don Rumsfeld pushed past the Fourteenth with a shove.
He was covered in soot and he looked kind of scary.
It seemed like his Christmas had not been so merry.

The Amendments said they weren't happy to see him:
"You tried to throw all of us in the museum!
"You've done so much the Constitution forbids!"
"And I would have gone on, but for you meddling kids!"

Uncle Sam told him "Rummy, your plans just won't do,
"So we've got a brand new timetable for you!"
And as Rumsfeld retired and crept into the night
The Amendments cried out "Have a good secret flight!"

From the distance they heard him reply with a snort.
"Bye-bye, Rummy!" they answered, "we'll see you in court!"
Uncle Sam rode the chimney up out of the room
And, like Frosty, he said "I'll be back again soon."

But they heard him exclaim "Oh, and just one more thing! "This year, when the holiday bells start to ring,
"Try to honor religion. Honest faith can't be wrong.
"It's America, can't we all just get along?

"So, on Christian," he cried, "Muslim, Hindu, and Jew!
"On Quaker! On Shaker! And Atheist too!
"On Buddhist! On Taoist! And to show we're not chickens
"We'll file a few lawsuits defending the Wiccans!

"Your belief is your right, so get out there and savor it.
"Uncle Sam's not a preacher, and he doesn't play favorites!"
So this holiday season, whatever you do,
Warmest wishes for Freedom, from the ACLU.

Impeachment is PEACHY!!!!


When "Commander In Chief" first aired, I had doubts about whether I'd give in and watch it week after week. In spite of my
disgust for politics, I thought I'd give it a try. At the onset, I was hooked. In this political climate of greed, corruption, power mongers and control mongers, "Commander In Chief" became my bright spot. This show took me to a place where the reality of how a woman could guide a people, and what that could look like, looked wonderful.... and realistic. So much so, that again, in a much stronger reaction, I wondered why the heck the US had NOT had a woman for president, or a person of color!

Then came the hiatus, and the slot-hopping, and time-shifting. And soon, it was gone. What the heck happened?! Have
some of our Government dipped their fingers into something NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS?? Possibly, especially when it's election time around the corner. I was furious when I saw all around that it was being cancelled! So, out of this desperate need to DO something, in the midst of my personal frustrations with so many things, my petition was born.

On August 1, 2006 (just a couple months after starting the petition) I gathered all the names and comments, and headed to the Post Office. That same day, another person (off Care2) who had his own petition going mailed his in as well. When all was said and done, together we delivered approximately 1800 signatures!! Now, it may not seem like much, and my petition only brought in 600, but in the context that I had it up for only 2 months, I'd say that it was an excellent turn out. So, we printed out a stack of signatures to send to ABC. So far, we haven't heard anything back (big surprise).

In the meantime, I still have the petition open. The people at ABC now have the direct link to it, and I figured more people would want the chance to speak out.... and they have. It's now rounding up past 800 signatures! Thank you to all of you who participated! It's my hope that a show such as "Commander In Chief" can bring to our consciousness as a country, that
politics can be played with integrity, genuine interest in "the
people", and that the first choice does not ALWAYS have to be war!
