A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

While John McCain, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney boast about the success of the "surge," April is turning out to be the deadliest month of the armed conflict in Iraq.

Cindy Sheehan: Number 3291

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

Out of war, nations acquire additional territory if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few -- the self same few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war.

The nation is deeply divided along party lines over Bush's Iraq War policy. Republicans seem to largely support Bush and Cheney on the issue. Independents, third party supporters, and Democrats are overwhelmingly opposed.

This is Repuglicanism at its worst, read it, and vomit! "Since President Bush came into office, the Justice Department has made 'voter fraud' prosecutions a high priority. Yet, not for lack of effort, they've barely been able to find any examples of it. The grand effort has boiled down to a program to send a few handfuls [of] folks -- mainly black -- to jail for what are in almost every case notional or unintentional voting infractions." Racism isn't limited to just Don Imus's egregious words and insults in this country!

I'm not a fan of Gwen Ifill on PBS
Because she seems to lean to the right
But she clearly is professional in her
TV appearances night after night.

Don Imus called her "a cleaning lady"
And to her defense I will gladly come
This falls under the heading of hateful
And sails many blocks beyond dumb.

Subject: Racism

Correct me if I'm wrong, but with this Imus/racist situation that is being discussed all over the blogosphere and t.v. does anyone remember where Ronald Reagan chose to make his first campaign appearance in 1980? Philadelphia, Mississippi!! the home of one of the most violent, horrific civil rights murders in our history. Three young civil rights workers brutally slain by the KKK. If we're going to have a discussion on race then let's have a discussion and let the chips fall where they may. Racism anyone? The beloved St. Ronald was as guilty as the next. And as long as I'm criticizing Reagan, I'll toss in homelessness to boot!!

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Governors across the nation are lambasting President Bush for ordering over 12,000 National Guard soldiers to Iraq later this year. The deployments will not only weaken security at home but also further what one called "the Bush administration's failed policies."

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"Jeb Bush part of global trio touting ethanol" -- Headlines like this beg the question, has the Bush family invested in Corn and/or Sugarcane Futures??? When Oil men start touting ethanol, then money has got to be the basis for the switch!
