Once in a while, I see Norman Lear. Not surprising. In Los Angeles' progressive community, it's bound to happen. Eerie how he never seems to age.

Monica Goodling resigned last Friday
Because the top aides for the POTUS
Have always felt this is the best day to
Do things they hope no one will notice.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

Last night we saw the gripping Academy Award winning best foreign film, "The Lives of Others." It’s an absorbingly bleak movie about how individuals in East Germany were under a 100,000 person police-state apparatus known as the Stasi.

I am in a stupor.

Can people really be so ignorant and manipulated?

I am standing on a busy intersection holding a sign that proclaims I am a "military family who speaks out." There is an air show going on at the air force base down the street.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

Well, rather than an apology, how about paying back the taxpayers their money for all of those years of bogus investigations and lawsuits, plus a bonus for all of the aggravation that the public had to put up with when President Clinton was trying to do his job? Day after day of nothing else on the news. It was a disgrace to this country, and today, with real crime in government, we don't hear a peep out of these do-gooders. In fact, supporting the troops by sending them off to a bogus invasion of another country seems to be okay with these people, who think death is much better of a reward than life. The thing about that kind of thinking is that not one of the dead has ever testified to that claim.

Shirley Smith: What Have We Got To Lose?

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

Typical response from such a criminal abuser as Bush. Pelosi let Bush know right from the start that she was not going to make him accountable. "Impeachment is off the table." (Impeachment should just be the beginning of what this Bush GOP administration deserves.) Bush assumes Pelosi is no threat, so he and all of the other GOP supporters will continue to discredit her.

Friends,

Here is the "other" story concerning Iraqi oil. Given their history and decades old fight for nationalization of oil resources, the union workers probably represent the overwhelming majority of public opinion inside Iraq (voiceless at this juncture). The so-called "privatization" of Iraq's most valuable resource (note 115 billion gallons of crude) seems the heart of the matter now. It lends credence to the postulate: to know the real story, "follow the money."

You'd have to call it progress when impeachment, which for almost a year has been a banned word in the corporate media and the halls of Congress, starts being discussed as a serious matter, even if it is only to say it shouldn't be done.

ANYBODY GOT $500 million collecting dust under the couch? If you live in Chicago, take a second look between those cushions. The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has let it be known that the people of the Windy City could pay out as much as $500 million if they are awarded the 2016 Summer Games.
