BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

There is a man with political aspirations who should pay close attention to what happened to Joe Lieberman in Tuesday's primaries. A man who has also bent over backwards sucking up to George Bush! A man who would do well to heed the pulse of this nation, to hear what people are saying, if he truly intends to remain in politics--listen up, John McCain, for this country is tired of wimps who support an even bigger wimp, we are tired of the policies that subvert democracy, we are sick of the arrogance and the ignorance, we are disheartened at the corruption and the wheeling and dealing, we want our country back, and the only way we can get it is to make sure there is a big CHANGE in Washington, D.C.!

After having seen what Bush has done to the Middle East in Iraq, one would hope and, yes, pray, that Israel would not be drawn into a scheme orchestrated by the Bush administration! Alas, I am afraid that fighting in Lebanon is but another Bush preconceived plan to draw fire and thus support an invasion into Syria and Iran. And if the results in Iraq are an indicator, it doesn't bode well for Israel or for America!

* * * 

Hang on to your hats, bend over and kiss your behind good-bye, we're entering the realm of ratcheting up the fear level once again! Given the results of the Lieberman loss, the Repuglicans are afraid, very afraid, of losing their choke-hold on America, so they will bring out their best scare tactics to try and frighten the entire nation into voting for them. But this time it won't work, for we now know the main reason why we are so vulnerable. To borrow a phrase from the Repugs, "the fact of the matter is" the Repuglicans are the ones who have gotten us into this mess and they don't know how to get us out! Rooting out the source of our problems, getting rid of the Repuglican majority and the Bush administration would be a good start towards ultimate survival for America!

When will the nincompoops in Washington wake up? THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE BEING LIED INTO A PREEMPTIVE UNNECESSARY WAR! We do not like it when the Bush administration covers up all their dirty dealings along with their dirty laundry, we do not like anyone tampering with our civil rights, we do not like being spied on, we do not like the hypocrisy that's running rampant in the Repuglican party today! We do not like the arrogance, and the ineptitude, of a bunch of ne'er-do-wells who pretend to be something they aren't! We are fed up with the Repuglican culture of corruption! We are sick to death of today's tone in Washington and we're damn sure sick of George W. Bush! 

* * *

And while I'm at it, I'm also fed up with mainstream corporate media, the Washington Press Corps (Helen Thomas excluded), the name brand columnists who truly believe their inane opinions are gospel, the talking ditto heads posing as analysts and experts, the Rush Limbaughs and the Ann Coulters, they're all a bunch of wastrels who bottom feed on nothing but fear and loathing. Remember their dictum, "there is no truth, there's only what you can get the masses to believe." They are a disgusting lot, a disgrace born of Repuglicanism and bred to lie, slander, and war monger. They are all representative of the dark side of freedom and democracy, and everything that's shameful! It's no wonder we've lost stature in America, what with these slime balls on the loose to spread their wares!

Tony Snow: "Do you take the war on terror seriously?" Hmm, have to wonder why your boss G.W. didn't take it seriously? In case you've forgotten, Tony, way back in 2001, G. W. didn't just "ignore the difficulties and walk away," nooo, he chose not to interrupt his R&R, a month's vacation down on the ranch, even though he got a precise PDB warning "Osama determined to strike within the U.S." And that, Tony, is exactly what led to 9-11!

* * *

Sounds like a threat to me---"Newt Gingrich claimed there is a 'legitimate insurgency in Connecticut, which needs to be met head on.'" Statements like this make one wonder if this is the beginning of a not so subtle reason why Halliburton was given a no-bid contract to build thosedetention centers"! "These centers might be used for immigration, or for disaster relief, or vaguely '... to support the rapid development of new programs.'" As early as September of 2002, John Ashcroft discussed internment of even American citizens who were deemed "enemy combatants"! Has it come down to internment for those of us who aren't willing to kiss Repuglican behinds and embrace Repuglican insanity???

"DORNIN: Political analysts say that McKinney really misjudged her constituency ... that people just weren't buying a lot of her odd behavior. You know, there was, of course, the Capitol Hill clash, where she punched a policeman, and a couple years ago where she criticized the Bush administration, claiming that they had had -- they knew something about the 9/11 attacks." Love her or hate her, how you feel about Ms. McKinney is entirely up to you, but in the interest of fairness, it would behoove mainstream corporate media to quit pedaling half truths for storyline effect. Actually Representative McKinney was correct in claiming the Bush administration knew "something" about 9-11, as I remember it, there was that glaring Aug. 6th PDB that said "Osama determined to strike within the U.S." which should qualify as "something," and as far as "punching a policeman" goes, she wasn't charged with anything after a thorough and I mean thorough investigation, so stop this tabloid bullsh*t and fully report the facts!
