Poster: Nick Wheeler, NYC
Caption: from Obama (I hope): Yes, I am going to have RIck Warren, who equated gay marriage to incest and pedophiliac marriage, at the inauguration because I am going to give everyone a voice. I will ultimately move on the anti-war (which might even include Afghanistan and Pakistan), progressive, grassroots, average champaign contribution of $82, anti-torture (which McCain was also for), closing gitmo, and maybe some other good stuff I mentioned in my agenda. Although I supported FISA, hired a patriot act attorney general, a couple Rubin economic advisors Volcker, Summers and Geithne (even though Greenspan has basically admitted the free market doesn't work), an expert who said Hamas was at fault (without mentioning that Israel too broke international law, way to start diplomacy) my main aim is to restore democracy and end suffering.

Poster: Kathy from the South Pole
Caption: Santa, all jokes set aside; because it is just not funny any more, a lot of people are hurting, from investment frauds, mortgage abuse, give away our tax payer money to businesses that do not have to be accountable sense the beginning of this, so called war in Iraq, which is actually an invasion by the United States, including the lives that have been taken in the name of... democracy; now that is funny, not to mention, the 700 billion dollar bailout? I see the kid looking at his watch and my list is long, I have not started in about Global Warming, but Santa, I believe I do believe in miracles and with hope, prayer and compassion from all,we can survive with our dignity, so Santa, all I want for Christmas is for this administration to pay for their incompetence and derelict of duties to their country and constitutional obligations. It seems that impeachment may be out of the question, but accountability is not. What they have done is criminal. God Bless You Santa, for you have your work cut out for you this year to answer to all those in need.
