The President has asked for the full funding for the U.S. occupation of Iraq with no timeline for withdrawal. This is the only way, he says, it will be known throughout the world, as well as on the frontlines (however one might define them) that we as a nation are united in "supporting our troops." It appears clear to everyone at home and abroad (except, apparently for the Georgites and their Privatized Ministry of Propaganda) that a substantial majority of the American people does not support the war and wants the troops to come home, now. But, he says, a) that he's got to have the money with no timeline, and b) that he wants to meet with the Democratic Congressional leadership to discuss reaching a common ground.

He said this in Elko, Nevada which has
Five brothels in that location
Which reminds me what a whore McCain
Is for the Bush administration.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"... the Bush administration ... micro-managed every aspect of the [Iraq] occupation to disastrous consequences ... The economic reconstruction of Iraq has been a failure for everyone except the U.S. corporations that have ripped off U.S. taxpayers to the tune of many billions of dollars ... a military surge has been ordered to provide a social order for Iraq that this president's policies have destroyed." The "surge" is also designed to cover Bush's "cut and run" with the money in the end! All that's needed for that realization is to look at his past history -- the sale of Harken Energy stock, the intricate underhanded dealings using local government to obtain real estate for the Texas Ranger's stadium and subsequent sale of his interests! Who among us could get away with such a deal??? The guy is dangerous and the sons and daughters of America are making the ultimate sacrifice. This time around his dealings, his plots and schemes have cost more than 3300 American soldiers their lives as well as thousands of innocent Iraqis their lives!!! Impeach and prosecute!!!

"If Hitler's still alive, I hope he's out of town with a musical."

So said the great comic writer and Broadway veteran Larry Gelbart, meaning there are fewer more hellish and excruciating tribulations in the arts than suffering through the birthing pains of a live show with songs as well as dialogue.

Watching Bill Moyers' special on his return to PBS, "Buying the War," I was struck by the stark contrast between the yeoman work of then Knight-Ridder (now McClatchy) reporters Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel, and everybody else in what used to be called the journalism profession.

Impeachment is moving inexorably into the mainstream.

On Saturday, April 28, people across the nation rallied to spell out the word "Impeach" with their bodies from coast to coast. Most of their efforts went unreported in the nation's complicit, propaganda-organ-like corporate media, but the effects of the effort were still felt.

BuzzFlash,

I say, "crime may not always pay," because it depends on how high up the perpetrators are in our government, or so it seems, since Bush can still claim 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as his address, and that's not the first crime scene. AWOL and suspicious stock trades, and not to mention some of the cruelty done for fun.

New York City: When I grew up, one of the most popular TV shows was "What's My Line?," a quiz with stars guessing what contestants did for a living. It was fun, upbeat, and positive.
