DNC: Bush Renews Failed Renewable Energy Policy

Washington, D.C. - Today, President Bush will address the national renewable energy conference in St. Louis. Despite the White House's lofty rhetoric when it comes to renewable energy the fact is that America's dependence on foreign energy has increased under Bush's watch. The Bush Administration allowed their friends in the energy industry to write our nation's energy policy. Since then, America's working families have struggled to keep up with escalating gas prices.

To figure this out you didn't have to be
Mystery writer Dashiell Hammett
I'd bet that many White House staffers
Were loudly grumbling, "Damn it!"

This is like when Sen. McCarthy

Of government employees that he

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

If and when these "faith-based" Christian conservatives ever find out they've been used and abused, God help the perps! Frankly, it's impossible to really believe that those who lie, cheat, and steal are truly "faith based"! Given the current Repuglican culture of corruption, reality tells us God is not first and foremost within this political realm! And if money is the "root of all evil," then these moneyed politicians are about as evil as evil can get!!!

A just released study by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, published in the current issue of the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet, reports that the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq has led to the deaths of between 426,000 and 794,000 Iraqis. This is a substantial increase over the 100,000 dead that the same research group found through 2004, based upon a smaller survey, and it represents an astonishing 2.5 percent of the country's total population.

The grim news was widely -- though not universally -- reported in the U.S. media (my local paper, the Philadelphia Inquirer, blacked it out), but few news organizations reported the most disturbing finding of the study, which was that 31 percent of those killed were acatually slain by U.S. and "coalition" forces (actually by U.S. forces, since most of the other foreign forces working with the U.S., with the exception of the British, have not played combat roles, and even the British have largely operated in the south where fighting has been much less severe.

George Lakoff: A Call for Progressive Unity

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by George Lakoff and the Rockridge Institute

I have long been advocating unity among progressives of all stripes, including those on the Democratic right. The far right's dominance of the Republican party make it urgent that those who oppose the far right, even on partially progressive grounds, unite.

Election: If Republicans Win, Bush Requests More Troops to Iraq, If Democrats Win, Baker Moves Major Policy Change.

The new Army planning to keep current troops levels in Iraq into 2010 is a very honest plan based on the current policy. Note this Army contingency does not mean American troops stay into 2010 and then leave. It means the current projection, based on the current policy, is troop strength remains at current levels and our presence will, in fact, continue long after.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Well, it is the month of October and many of us are wondering about the hubristic threat of a Rovian October surprise, and if it would be deadly, because this is the administration for debt, death, and destruction ... at any cost.

Subject: Why is the GOP behind?

People have different opinions as to why Republicans are trailing in the polls this election season. Some say it's because of the Foley scandal. That's because Evangelicals took credit for electing Republicans they are now taking the blame for what the Republicans did. Putting a gay congressman in charge of the exploited children caucus who is trying to exploit children isn't what Evangelicals want on their list of political accomplishments.
