A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by L M (Johnson) Tschudy

I have been watching the Senate's Business this past week and am totally horrified and repulsed with the cavalier manner and contemptuous disdain with which the Senate Republicons and Democrats have regarded not only the sons and daughters of America, but also with our Rule of Law -- specifically the U.S. Constitution, particularly Freedom of Speech and the Writ of Habeas Corpus.

Shirley Smith: Justice in Jena -- The Lack of It

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

That's right, march on that town in Louisiana. Americans have been told over and over that this country has succeeded in equal rights, but we Americans have seen them chipped away little by little as those Americans in this country who still think like the plantation owners of yesterday use their power in government to turn back any progress made in this country, based on the ideas that we Americans are not all equal if you are black, another color, poor, gay, or female.
