A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

I'm pissed off. And judging from the polls, most of you are too. We're in a war without end that we don't want to be in, our economy is in the toilet, and we don't have healthcare. Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, the play was fabulous. Well not really, the Executive branch of our government has gone amok, the Constitution is in crisis and our democracy is hanging by a thread. Not only are we not too wild about our President, we like our Congress even less.

There is presently a serious possibility that America will come under martial law before the 2008 presidential election and be irretrievably turned into a totalitarian state. If this happens there won't even be a free election in 2008. We can and should eliminate this ominous threat to national security by impeaching Bush and Cheney now. But the man in charge, John Conyers, is afraid of what Fox News might say about him.

Amy Branham: Issues

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Amy Branham

I'm tired of hearing about the next Presidential election already. I'm tired of hearing who has raised how much money and I'm really sick and tired of hearing about Hillary and Obama, Romney and Giuliani. I don't give a damn how much Edwards spends on a hair cut. I don't care how many wives Giuliani has had, and I really am not interested in Romney's religion or anything about Hillary. Frankly, I'm tired of the Bush/Clinton/Bush cycle and hope with every fiber of my being that we get out of that this election term.

Last week, a media advisory from "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" announced a new series of interviews on the PBS show that will address "what Iraq might look like when the U.S. military leaves."

A few days later, Time magazine published a cover story titled "Iraq: What will happen when we leave." But it turns out, what will happen when we leave is that we won't leave.

Journey for Humanity and Accountability, Day 16

Justice should be color-blind, but we all know that it still is not.

Historically, there are many cases, perhaps thousands if not millions, disputing the blindness of justice; but when I think about this contradiction, a few cases jump to my mind.

George W. Bush's presidential tenure has been marked by one coverup after another. But the masterful spinning of Karl Rove and a compliant media enabled Bush to get away with it. Now that the Democrat-controlled Congress is investigating Administration malfeasance, Bush's coverups have come cloaked in the guise of "executive privilege."

Former readers of Mad Magazine can remember a regular feature called "Scenes We'd Like to See." It showed what might happen if candor replaced customary euphemisms and evasions. These days, what media scenes would we like to see?

Journey for Humanity and Accountability, Day 14

I am lying in my hotel bed at the end of a very busy, productive, yet sad day.

About 300 people gathered today and marched the 3½ miles from the entrance of Arlington Cemetery to Congressman John Conyers' office to demand impeachment and accountability from one of the leading figures in American politics for the last four decades.
