A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman

The illegal destruction of federally protected 2004 election materials by 56 of 88 Ohio counties has become a fraudulent "dog ate my homework" farce of absurd justifications and criminal cover-ups.

Cindy Sheehan: The Other War

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I was sitting behind the stage at Union Square the other day when a young woman with a cameraman in tow approached me and asked me if she could ask me a "question." Seldom when I am approached to answer "a" question does it turn out to be just one question and this person looked like she was about 14 years old.

The kind of money being spent by the Bush Republicans can result in saved or lost lives. We all can see the results in the case of Iraq. Launching his optional war against Saddam Hussein, in the way he did, Bush has directly cost the lives of thousands of American soldiers and maybe a hundred thousand mostly innocent Iraqi civilians. We have failed as a nation to come to terms with the massive costs that are less direct and obvious but just as real.

During the 2006 midterm election, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi proclaimed to the nation and the world, that the impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney was "off the table." At that time the statement seemed more a campaign ploy than an actual policy. Those who honored the Constitution as the law of the land clearly understood that the Constitution, in whole or in part, could not arbitrarily be suspended. Therefore, it was inconceivable that Mrs. Pelosi would interject political ideology for Constitutional law and indiscriminately suspend Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution. To do so would be a categorical abuse of power, and as impeachable an offense as the abuses of power committed by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

It's time for Michael Vick to hang up his Falcons jersey. He should be immediately suspended from the NFL and, if convicted of dogfighting, thrown in the slammer. People who abuse animals belong in prison, not on the playing field. Anyone who is capable of the heinous cruelty detailed in Vick's damning 18-page indictment poses a danger not only to animals but also to fellow humans.

The United States has been in a prolonged Constitutional crisis since the Supreme Court showed it had been corrupted by partisan politics when the Bush vs. Gore ruling was issued in December 2000. The Bush Administration began by Republican politicians thumbing their noses at the rule of law. The past 7 years have been an unending assault on Constitutional government, American political traditions, and personal freedom.

Next week, in my upstate New York hometown, people will come from all over to attend the 47th Annual Pageant of Steam.

Farmers, aficionados, and the merely curious will wander a hundred acres of displays -- antique, steam-powered tractors and threshers, steam engines that pulled plows and powered machines to dig wells, cut lumber, and make shingles. Most of them still work.

It is time to think about the "unthinkable." The Bush Administration has both the inclination and the power to cancel the 2008 election. The GOP strategy for another electoral theft in 2008 has taken clear shape, though we must assume there is much more we don't know.

It must be hard to be a factory farmer these days. First there's the problem of finding workers.

If they appear to be legal, how do you know they're not undercover animal advocates with cameras who will make you an overnight animal abuse criminal on the Internet?

Journey for Humanity and Accountability, Final Day

Before I headed to our "Gather-In of Hearts" in Central Park West this afternoon, I was watching NBC's Meet the Press. Except for a brief excerpt about the Alberto Gonzales hearing this week, the entire show was about Obama vs. Hillary.
