    Should a war criminal be permitted to speak on the Fourth of July at Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello?

    The Thomas Jefferson Foundation, a private nonprofit, owns and operates Monticello with a professed mission of preservation and education. Call Monticello right now and ask them to uninvite Bush: (434)984-9822. Then let the Daily Progress newspaper in Charlottesville know that you've done that: enewstips@dailyprogress.com

    In Charlottesville on July 4th: Join us for a colorful nonviolent exercise of our First Amendment rights at 8:30 a.m. at the first parking lot on the right on Rt. 53 just east of Rt. 20. Or attend the event at Monticello, open to the public.

    The Unitary Executive is scheduled to disgrace the grounds of Thomas Jefferson's house, Monticello, in Charlottesville, Va. During a July 4 naturalization ceremony, immigrants will swear to "support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic" at an event besmirched by the presence of the Constitution's leading domestic enemy. Jefferson's Declaration of Independence from King George faulted him for harassment by his troops, elevating the military above civilian power, denying people a fair trial by jury by transporting them overseas to be tried on false accusations, and other abuses that have been matched by our current King George. He has claimed the power to ignore laws, to rewrite laws, to adhere to secret laws, to discard habeas corpus, to spy without warrant, to detain without charge, to torture, to murder, and to lie the nation into wars of conquest. All citizens, old and new, have a duty to support and defend the Constitution, a document that requires the impeachment of a president as criminal and abusive as the current one.

    For information on the protest, including housing if coming from out of town, call 434-961-6278.

    Please bring posters, signs, costumes, banners, props.

    The man shouldn't be allowed to speak anywhere unless it was from inside a jailcell

    How would u go about uninviting the president of the united states? Given todays media it would look bad on them.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Maybe you could get the flame war started under the podium where King George might speak, you know, don't burn em, just smoke em out !!! LOL !!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>His Speaking at Monticello probably cannot be stopped, but it would be great if enough protestors could fill the hillsides around that beautiful place and drown him out with lines of the Vietnam War protest song "AINT GONNA STUDY WAR NO MORE", and GO HOME BUSH, or SEND KILLER BUSH TO JAIL, but it would all be lost on that sorry SOB because he does'nt have conscience enough to recognize all the horror he's caused
