A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

New York, New York (Mediachannel.org): TV News comes alive when celebrities or former presidents die. That's the time when news ghouls come out to play.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

The horror of what happens because George Bush is incompetent and is sticking his nose and American troops into a civil war in Iraq, is mind-blowing!!! "Hersh: U.S. Funds Being Secretly Funneled to Violent Al-Qaeda-Linked Groups ... this president is really taking his notion of executive privilege to the absolute limit here, running covert operations, using money that was not authorized by Congress, supporting groups indirectly that are involved with the same people that did 9/11"! Then there is this: "American aircraft are bombing terrorist targets that have been chosen by US and Iraqi forces ...  the air-strikes were aimed at insurgent strongholds ... the hideouts of Sunni insurgent gangs linked to al-Qaeda." Obviously the moron's left hand doesn't know what his right hand is doing, so his solution is to bomb both Sunnis and Shiites with American troops in the middle!

If you knew that your group was making a float for the 4th of July Parade, you would find time to make your costume and help with the float. Far more important are the priorities of the federal budget. If we get to work and demand a well-pruned budget that faces not only our real military needs but also the urgent national needs -- such as reducing global warming and improving healthcare for our people -- we can change budget priorities. Forget making that costume and express your patriotism by helping to shape a budget that will make our national future more secure.

The Bush Republicans seem to be playing a very cynical political game concerning the Iraq policy debate. The overwhelming majority of policy experts and the American public has already concluded that the Bush White House policies pursued in Iraq have been complete failures. The policies were ill-conceived in design and executed poorly at the political level.

Out of the '08 presidential race
This could give Mitt a shove
But may increase DVD sales for
The first season of "Big Love."

 

I wonder if Connecticut voters will open their eyes
And realize he’s good for the Jews but not the GIs.

 

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO


BUSH EXTENDED FAMILY PHOTO taken January 20, 2005

Yet, not one -- not one -- of any of Bush's children or his nieces and nephews have volunteered for service in any branch of the military or volunteered to serve in any capacity in Iraq. Not one of them has felt the cause was noble enough to put his or her life on the line.
