Hmm, thanks to Chris Dodd we’re finding out it only takes one Senator with some guts, not 67 Dewey Decimal Rules and Regulations cowards, to stop Bush, Cheney, and the Repuglicans in their tracks! SenatorChris Dodd on Thursday single-handedly blocked a bill to legalize unconstitutional spying and immunize criminals who have engaged in it.”

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

We're not just computing brains. We're also sensory and emotional creatures. When we come to media, we're along for the ride, and the quality of the ride is not just a function of its truth value, it's also a function of its emotional and sensational value.

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Just A Reminder

Excerpt from g w bush's address to the nation on Sept. 20, 2001:

Americans are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what we see right here in this chamber -- a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms -- our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other ... These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They stand against us, because we stand in their way ...

Welcome to the “Wonderland”, created by George Bush, Dick Cheney, and mainstream corporate media in America! A “looking glass” of smoke and mirrors designed to shape opinion and bend reality as only the Bushies can do! “…the big Bush ‘withdrawal’ plan is to reduce the number of Army brigades by one and then,"[t]wo of the [Guard] units will be full combat brigades heading to Iraq." The supposed pending ‘withdrawal’ amounts to reducing the number of U.S. troops by 3,500 and INCREASING it by how many? Well, according the AP report, "All together, the Guard announcement would involve about 20,000 soldiers."
