BuzzFlash Editor's Blog

Mark Karlin, Editor and Publisher, BuzzFlash.com

As we mentioned in our first BuzzFlash Editor's Blog on November 12, stick with us for awhile as we see how this new addition to BuzzFlash unfolds. I'll be suprised as you will be, and I'm the one writing it.


It's quite a stunning explanation of how they feel the presidency should run. For example, they think that when Reagan left office with very high approval ratings, it was like dying rich. They think the president should be down to single digits if he's doing things right, because he's such an authoritarian figure, he's not going to be terribly popular. Well, Bush looks like he's trying to fulfill that image for them.

Dr. J.'s Commentary: Why Torture?

In my Commentary of Nov. 8, 2007, "A Torturous Debate," I discussed the genius of the Rove-inspired (if not still Rove-directed) Georgite propaganda machine in causing the torture discussion during the confirmation hearings on Judge Mukasey for Georgite Attorney General (sic) to focus on the question of the definition of waterboarding: is it or isn't it?

Dave Lindorff: I Saw a UFO, Too

It was predictable that just as people in the Democratic primary states are starting to notice that of all the candidates running for the party's nomination, it is Dennis Kucinich who stands solidly for everything they care about -- ending the war, impeaching the president and vice president, establishing universal government-funded health care (with the blood-sucking insurance industry out of the picture), ending trade agreements such as NAFTA that just ship U.S.


As a college student in the 1970s, I avoided history classes after receiving a mediocre grade in the first one that I did take. Studying Texas history in the Houston public schools for a mandatory three years just hadn't prepared me for Western Civilization 1-2. In retrospect, I wish I had stuck with history.

Water under the bridge. We all make dumb choices when we're 18.

Rainlillie: Nancy! Set the Table!

by Rainlillie

Nancy, set the table! The American people are hungry, so put a large bowl of truth and a side dish of integrity on the table. I'd also like to see a huge serving of subpoenas for those who have failed to turn over important documents and are impeding investigations.

Let's not forget to add a side dish of courage, it seems the Democrats aren't getting enough of this dish, they're suffering from a major deficiency, which is why they appear so weak.

Cindy Sheehan: Never Again

by Cindy Sheehan

The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today:
My own country, I cannot be silent.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is the day that our nation "celebrates" Veteran's Day. For most people it is a day to sleep in and catch up on shopping, chores, and other errands. For me and too many others, it is just another especially hard day in an endless litany of hard days since Casey was killed in Sadr City on April 4, 2004.

One day a year to honor our veterans is a noble gesture, and I'm sure veterans of all wars appreciate the tribute. But when one of every four homeless persons is a war veteran, it's time to overhaul the system that offers such tragically inefficient service to our soldiers and give them more than a patriotic song and march.

Democrats and Republicans can't seem to get on the same page with any issues, but on taking care of our veterans, they need to unite and take real action.
