BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

What a whole lot of knuckle-heads in Congress don’t realize---Americans are not unpatriotic when it comes to questioning the war in Iraq!  We are not against real DEFENSIVE action, we all love our country probably more than the Repugs can even imagine! It takes courage to speak up, it takes guts to question the dubious actions of powerful politicians, it takes nerve to support real “freedom and democracy”.  It takes a brave soul to disagree with that lunatic perched in the Oval Office today!  Repuglicans don’t have a clue, they don’t know the true meaning of valor!

* * * 

The results of having a man without a vision in charge, a “regular guy” if you will, a moron at best, an idiot at worst, whatever you want to call him, George Bush has managed to DESTABILIZE the entire Middle East with his insanity.  What began with a lie ends with the most dangerous situation America has ever imagined, and it's past time for these arrogant, war mongering, airheads to go!  We need someone who knows what they’re doing in Washington; we need someone with the intelligence (brain kind) it takes to govern America!

* * *

Actually it’s beginning to look like George Bush has accomplished at least one thing Saddam Hussein never did---Bush has ultimately given Iraq to Iran!

* * *

What Joe still hasn’t figured out is that, with a little partisanship, perhaps America would not be in the mess we find ourselves in today!!!  Had more Democrats stood up to the Bush administration and used even a little bit of logic, George Bush may not have received a free pass to wage preemptive unnecessary war, he may not have been able to order up torture and abuse, subvert our civil rights, and generally take America down the road to a dictatorship!  And if you really want to see what partisanship is about, all you have to do is take a gander at the radical side of the aisle in Congress, the Repuglicans, a group you willingly joined for whatever gratification you were obviously seeking!  We the public are sick and tired of Repuglicans who deliberately, with malice and forethought, throw stones in hopes of not being caught on their own petard!  We are sick of the hypocrisy, the lies, the subterfuge, the cover-ups, intimidation and manipulation, we are sick of the Repuglican party!  We want true freedom and democracy; we want a government of the people, by the people and for God’s sakes, for the people in America!!!

Have to wonder if someone handed him an AK-47 and told him to go fight the wars in the Middle East, how excited would Newt be about that?  These foolhardy armchair warriors aka chickenhawk Repuglicans have changed the fabric of American politics into the most dangerous, biggest bunch of liars this nation has ever had to endure!  How brave they sound blowing all that blustering hot air when it’s someone else doing the fighting for them, the whole bunch are just plain downright repulsive as well as yellow-bellied cowards!  Courage, valor, gallantry, heroism, guts, nerve and daring takes a lot more than meaningless speeches and TV appearances. Remember that old saying---“actions speak louder than words”!  “Duty, Honor, Country,” means a helluva lot more in my book than deferment!  How anyone can think these guys are better at protecting America’s safety and security is beyond me!

Ready set, and screw you to seniors all across America!  “Medicare reimbursements to doctors are set to drop by nearly 5 percent next year, an amount that physicians say could make it harder for elderly patients to see a doctor.”  Sorry Grandma and Grandpa, but tax cuts for the wealthy, the war in Iraq, and war profiteering take precedence over your needs to see a physician, over your life and death decisions, and all thanks to George W. Bush and a Repuglican majority in Congress!

* * *

If you think our image is tarnished now, just imagine what it will be if the Repuglican majority Congress allow Bush to skinny out of all the crimes he and the rest of his cabal have ordered up!  “The Bush administration has drafted amendments to a war crimes law that would eliminate the risk of prosecution for political appointees, CIA officers and former military personnel for humiliating or degrading war prisoners, according to U.S. officials and a copy of the amendments.”  Ultimately it’s our sons and daughters who will be adversely affected while the Bushies get off scot-free: “... the changes could affect how those involved in detainee matters act and how other nations view Washington's respect for its treaty obligations. ‘This removal of [any] reference to humiliating and degrading treatment will be perceived by experts and probably allies as "rewriting" the Geneva Conventions,’ said retired Army Lt. Col. Geoffrey S. Corn, who was recently chief of the war law branch of the Army's Office of the Judge Advocate General. Others said the changes could affect how foreigners treat U.S. soldiers.”

A different take on how soldiers feel about fighting in Iraq, and straight from a soldier's mouth: “... one private testifying that soldiers consumed whiskey and painkillers to try to cope with duty in Iraq.” It just goes to prove you can’t always believe the spin machine lies that come out of the Bush Office of Disinformation!
