MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

And, again, the same message that has been repeated many times . . . more proof that anything made by the human can be hacked by the human and sold. And still today, after all of the proof of the fraud, our nation depends on computer voting machines for the people's vote.

Shirley Smith: Time Wasted

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

This quote is from an e-mail sent by Democracy Now about today's program.  

There isn't time Representative Conyers says. If Bush and Cheney were held up with impeachment charges as they should be, they would not have more time to kill more people, and destroy more of this country's democracy. That should not be a matter of time. We've had over six years of time putting up with this criminal regime, and these people in Congress talk about "time?" That sounds too much like Pelosi and her excuse. What excuse are they going to use when the Democrats lose?  

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

DNC PRESS

Washington, DC- Two years ago, Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana and Mississippi, one of the worst natural disasters in the history of America. In the weeks and months following the disaster, the Bush White House and Republican-led Congress did little to help the survivors of Katrina, despite Democratic efforts to do so. Democrats took action just seven months after taking control of Congress, working to make sure the people of the Gulf Coast had the resources needed to rebuild the region. The reconstruction efforts are far from over, and Democrats are committed to getting the people of Louisiana and Mississippi the resources they need to finish the job.

With the Bush administration clearly pushing for war with Iran, as crazy as that would be, not just for an already over-extended, burned out military, but because of the havoc it would wreak on the global economy, it is time to call attention to a few points that are being ignored.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Adolf Hitler’s private army: “By the time the Nazi Party gained power in 1933 Himmler's SS had grown to a strength of 52,000. He was also made head of all German political police outside Prussia….the SS was now the principal instrument of internal rule in Germany”  Shades of Germany’s SS -- history repeats itself. “How about the CheneyBush Administration ‘outsourcing’ our military, our intelligence-gathering, our nation's soul … In short, CheneyBush have created what amounts to their own private legions -- soldiers, intelligence analysts, security guards, construction experts, supply specialists, et al. -- in effect, a ‘mercenary’ force bought and paid for by the American taxpayer.”

Monday, Monday. Can't trust that day. The GOP always seems to purge its leadership ranks on Mondays -- just when I'm sweating the deadline for this column, so I have to start all over. I swear, it's the work of that vast right-wing conspiracy. Go pick on somebody your own size, dammit.

Breaking News: The Army officer in charge of the interrogation/torture operation at Abu Ghraib in late 2003 is being court-martialed. My first thought was: Finally an officer is being held accountable. In view of the repeated rebuff to my own attempts to stop the torture and identify those responsible, however, you will perhaps excuse my skepticism that justice will be done.
