Will Durst: Spanking the Diaper

Written by
I don't know if you've heard about this, but it's exactly the kind of news that compels perfectly sane people to throw their arms up in the air, bang their foreheads against brick walls, and devote the rest of their lives to eating raw cookie dough out of plastic tubs in the basement while watching Jessica Fletcher overturn police incompetence on the Biography Channel. And what the hell is "Murder, She Wrote" doing on the Biography Channel in the first place? But that diatribe is best left for another day.

Cindy Sheehan: The Price of Freedom: 24

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

The Price of Freedom
24

Becoming a disabled vet during a time of "peace", I saw things, did things that you average Americans could not fathom. All for the sake of our freedoms. Who cries for my shipmates lost at sea? It was peacetime so no attention was called to it. Who stands out when a pilot goes down on a trianing mission? Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, die every day. EVERY DAY! it's the life we lead. It's a dangerous job, and I did it for the love of my country. The greatest freedom YOU have is not having to worry about weather or not our military will defend you. It is thier(our) duty. It is not a choice. We accepted that when we signed up. No one forced us. And we did not get to pick or chose whom we would defend. I lost friends and loved ones both in peace and in war and thier sacrifice is greater than your lose. But to you, it appears, we should sit on our hands and let madmen destroy the world. So Sorry, I have seen it first hand, this cruelity called terrorism.

I think the ground in Iraq would seem
Infinitely more like firma terra
If Maliki wasn’t such a dead ringer
For Yankee cut-up Yogi Berra.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

by Dave Lindorff, co-author of "The Case for Impeachment"

New Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), is calling President Bush's invasion of Iraq a "stark blunder" and says that his new scheme to send 21,500 more troops into the mess he created is just digging the hole deeper.

BuzzFlash,

This sounds so much like a GOP plant. I don't think the Democrats are going to bite the hands that got them into power. This is something Bush would do and has done, kill the messengers. But, not the Democrats. The only people the Democrats need to go after for accountability is this criminal Bush administration and all of their supporters. This is something the Republicans would do. Can't Congress pass bills that don't have those crazy tack-ons or create problems where no problem exists. People, such as bloggers are not lobbying for money like those on "K" Street or buying government favors. Or, is this in there, so the damn thing will not pass. If this is the results of GOP and Democrats and their bipartisanship, then they all should have to pay for it the next election around.

NEWS RELEASE

January 19, 2007

Washington, DC- Tomorrow, Kansas Senator Sam Brownback will announce his candidacy for the GOP Presidential nomination giving the American people their first real glimpse into his rigid conservative ideology. Despite his rhetoric on "real compassion", Senator Brownback has seemingly put ideology first, voting against the needs of hard working Americans, protection for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, benefits for our veterans and against advancing medical research during his years in the Senate.

Shirley Smith: The Bushes Looking Ahead?

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

I could be wrong, because I don't know all of what is going on with the Bush library and SMU, but, isn't old man Bush a Methodist. I think this is another ploy to hide what this Bush administration has been to the American people.

The world is upside down, and one brave first lieutenant tries to set it right. The U.S. war in Iraq is illegal and immoral, says 1st Lt. Ehren Watada. In thus choosing reality over fallacy, and refusing to deploy to Iraq with his Stryker brigade, the 28-year-old Honolulu native faces six years in the brig when his court-martial begins next month at Ft. Lewis near Seattle.

Subject:How To Get Away With Mass Murder

The Pentagon wants to execute detainees based on hearsay and coerced testimony.

The document was hailed by Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, top Republican on the House Armed Services, who said, "Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, and his cohorts are a step closer to trial."

Well, well, well......the cycle is complete. Osama has gone from the "mastermind behind 9/11" to "wanted dead or alive" to Bush "doesn't think about him anymore" to "Osama has been marginalized" to this latest piece of distraction from a Bush lackey: "Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks ... " Not even a mention of Osama? Osama who?
