BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

We have entered the Bush realm of CRAZY! “Bush seeks expanded military tribunal role:The White House is seeking legislation that would allow people not affiliated with terrorism to be prosecuted in military commissions -- with far fewer rights than afforded civilians.”If you truly value “freedom and democracy,” the time to speak up and out is NOW!

* * *

“Collateral damage” expectations and apologies don’t bring back the dead children, and that is the reason why saner men in saner times found negotiation and diplomacy the better solution for our differences. When you don’t see any dead terrorists, or any evidence of having destroyed “the missiles,” and you do see one dead child, and the rubble of what had once been home, you have to know war is not the answer!

* * *

"We discussed a lot of issues. The Prime Minister has laid out a comprehensive plan. That's what leaders do. They see problems, they address problems, and they lay out a plan to solve the problems.” It sounds like a skit written for some satirical comedy program, something to instigate a belly laugh from the audience, but unfortunately, it’s the opening statement during a joint press conference from the president of the United States of America! It’s gone beyond “regular guy” now, it’s become international idiot!

If only the Repuglican Representatives were as concerned about the illegal alien occupying the White House as they are about some undocumented workers here in the U.S. seeking a better life for their families! This guy crossed the borders into Washington D.C. illegally (having had fewer votes in 2000 and Repuglican-hacked electronic voting machines in 2004)! He speaks a language, foreign to anyone with an education above kindergarten, and is unable to convey an organized thought. His mannerisms and character project a thus far unknown (to honest hard working people) culture, reflective of over indulgence and extravagance based entirely on satiating an insane over-inflated self image. And if you want to talk about crime, since coming to Washington, he’s committed more crimes against “freedom and democracy,” against the Constitution, against humanity, than all those who legitimately occupied the Oval Office territory. It’s time to arrest him, and send him back from whence he came!

In response to his refusal to publicly appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee Donald Rumsfeld made one statement that stood out over all others: "Let's be honest …”, something he’s totally incapable of being!!! Rumsfeld’s time has come and gone, his grand idea of “streamlining” the military and creating a smaller, leaner, more technological, cost effective, fighting force has failed. And if the wisdom of not throwing good money after bad has any meaning at all, NOW would be the time for Bush to give Rumsfeld his token medal and move on to someone who knows how to get the job done and isn’t afraid to be honest with the Senate and ultimately the American people.

And there are still those who think “gasoline” is necessary to take that Sunday drive! Oh, how the “oil” industry and the automobile folks have been concealing the truth, let me count the smoggy ways!

* * *

“An early draft of the new law prepared by civilian political appointees and leaked to the media last week has been modified in response to criticism from uniformed military lawyers.” These days whenever I read something like this I suspect that the “leaker” is actually a “mole” attempting to test the public waters of acceptable and/or unacceptable! It’s a despicable lot of sneaky rats we have in government today, and we have found we can’t trust a thing the Repuglicans do or say! We must let them know this “new law” proposal is entirely unacceptable!
