Jules Carlysle: T'was the Night Before Ji'had

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Jules Carlysle

Listen my friends, to the story I tell…
About fighting terrorists and doing it well.
It began in the fall of two thousand and four
The Intelligence Service heard whispers and more…

Brash kids ran their mouths in the public domain
Sought like-minds for meetings by bus and by train.
On Web sites and chatrooms espousing radical ways
They were found out completely in a matter of days.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Just like a Repuglican “chickenhawk,” the Repuglicans who are up for re-election don’t want the public to know they’re pro-war! “These Senators, of course, are from the WINO caucus -- they are Waverers In Name Only who say they're 'wavering' in their support for Bush's policies, but keep voting against any measure that would actually force a change in those policies.” Actually they’re the same Repuglican cowards they’ve always been, they don’t even have the backbone to back up their pro-war votes.

That goes without saying but what would
Amaze me though
Is hearing Bush at a McCain speech shout,
"Don't tase me, bro!"

The war on voting rights continues. In the latest development, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear an appeal of a voting rights case over whether or not government identification requirements discriminate against the poor and minorities. The lower court opinion under review was written by an appeals court judge who believes voting distracts citizens from their most important duty: shopping.

Shirley Smith: We're in a World of Hurt

BuzzFlash,  

Baiting people and then killing them, this is out and out murder; of course, so was the Bush GOP's "shock and awe," followed by the invasion of the US into Iraq. Then there are the random killings by mercenaries, whose actions we are told do not come under any kind of law. Come on. How many people believe that if these mercenaries were hired by another country to kill Americans . . . do you really think they would not be punished by the Bush GOP, especially if the target happened to be US government officials?

So Pres. Ahmedinejad of Iran comes to the U.S. And boy, is the U.S. Right hot and bothered about his visit and what he wants to do here (inside the 25-mile radius from the UN within which foreign dignitaries on the Administration's s__t list must stay). First, he wants to visit the site of 9/11. Apparently forgetting that Iran delivered an outpouring of sympathy when the horror occurred, that Iran, a Shiite country, despises the Sunni bin Laden (and he doesn't like them much either), that Iran provided material aid to the original U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and still doesn't like the Taliban and certainly doesn't like the fact that under yet another Georgite-mismanaged war they have made a strong comeback, the U.S. Right launched a general "how dare he?" That of course fits right in with the current campaign to drum up Islamophobia using any convenient Muslim target regardless of politics (except, of course, the Bush-partners Saudis).

Cindy Sheehan: Petty and Cruel Dictator

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I heard that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at Columbia University because Columbia's president wanted to foster a "free exchange of ideas." Even though I am not an Ahmadinejad supporter, I know he was elected in Iran in a knee-jerk and understandable response to the USA's bloody unnecessary invasion of Iraq, as many reactionary governments have been elected in that region and all over the world in response to the spreading U.S. corporate and military empire.

Voters Deserve to Know: Would Giuliani, McCain, Romney, and Thompson Stand with Bush and Veto Children's Health Care?

Washington, DC -- The leading Republican presidential contenders have stood stubbornly behind President Bush on issue after issue and now they also appear to be standing behind his threat to veto health care for low-income children. America's voters deserve to know: Would Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Fred Thompson veto the children's health care bill that Congress will likely pass today?
