George Lakoff: A Call for Progressive Unity

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by George Lakoff and the Rockridge Institute

I have long been advocating unity among progressives of all stripes, including those on the Democratic right. The far right's dominance of the Republican party make it urgent that those who oppose the far right, even on partially progressive grounds, unite.

Election: If Republicans Win, Bush Requests More Troops to Iraq, If Democrats Win, Baker Moves Major Policy Change.

The new Army planning to keep current troops levels in Iraq into 2010 is a very honest plan based on the current policy. Note this Army contingency does not mean American troops stay into 2010 and then leave. It means the current projection, based on the current policy, is troop strength remains at current levels and our presence will, in fact, continue long after.

Rory O'Connor: Time Is on His Side

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Rory O'Connor

Rick Stengel is a man of nuance in an increasingly unsubtle media world. What's more, Stengel believes much of the rest of America stands with him.

Democrats should push back against every dishonest excuse and every evasion of responsibility by the partisan President and his acolytes who have done enough damage to our security for a lifetime.

Lets get this straight: Bill Clinton had a policy towards Korea that worked for eight years that included a strong military, and included diplomacy, and resulted in North Korea holding back from nuclear tests that have taken place on George W. Bush's watch.

The most interesting electronic mail of the last couple of weeks hasn't been the sorry collection of Instant Messages sent by former Rep. Mark Foley to male pages, his billets-fou to the post-pubescent. (As Robin Williams said on David Letterman Monday night, "Time to get our boys out of Congress.")

Norman Solomon: Welcome to the Nuclear Club

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Norman Solomon

Moments after hearing about North Korea's nuclear test, I thought of Albert Einstein's statement that "there is no secret and there is no defense; there is no possibility of control except through the aroused understanding and insistence of the peoples of the world."

During the six decades since Einstein spoke, experience has shown that such understanding and insistence cannot be filtered through the grid of hypocrisy. Nuclear weapons can't be controlled by saying, in effect, "Do as we say, not as we do." By developing their own nuclear weaponry, one nation after another has replied to the nuclear-armed states: Whatever you say, we'll do as you've done.

To men and women of faith, in my title I suggested a Google because I do not ask you to believe me, or anyone else, in this politically supercharged election. In this case the truth is more repugnant and immoral than any political comment could fully describe and I suggest you research this yourself and talk about the results with fellow believers.

Jack Abramoff made a fortune of money, then donated a fortune to Republicans, lobbying for the Marianas. These Islands in the Pacific are an American territory not subject to all U.S. laws and on these islands, horrific, disgusting and sinful acts are committed especially against women and children.

by Cindy Sheehan

While Democrats are jumping for joy and Republicans are scrambling like Keystone Kops and falling all over each other to cover their asses, 25 of our brave young children have been killed in Iraq.
