BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

The Repuglican mind-set---keep the incompetents in place during the tumultuous times they’ve created, otherwise the American people may find out there are those who really can do the job a helluva lot better!

 * * *

Sorry to say, but this is just another example of Bush getting someone else to fight his battles for him!  Typical bully tactics!

* * *

BREAKING NEWS: God doesn’t have anything to do with the impending WWIII and/or the Apocalypse as we are currently being led to believe!  In fact it’s a bunch of lunatic Repuglican chicken-hawks, with a few Neo-cons thrown in and a whole lot of radical fundamental religious extremists who are doing their very best to “bring it on”!  Frankly, there is no difference between these guys and the Jim Joneses the David Koreshes and that wacky bunch of loonies in San Diego aka Heaven’s Gate, except this time they’re trying to get the whole world to drink their brand of Kool-aid!  Come on people, don’t be lulled into a cult-driven suicide, wake up to the insanity, we are not a bunch of sheep to be led into oblivion!

* * *

It’s about time for someone smarter than G.W., Dick, Condi, and Rummy to do something while there’s still time to regain some dignity and credibility for the United States of America! This notion that it’s not good for our national image to impeach an imbecile while this country is at war is a pile of bulls**t!  It’s become quite obvious that not to impeach Bush and his fellow inmates is turning the whole country into a mirror image of absolute lunacy!  It’s time to show the chicken-hawks what it’s like to fight a real battle!  There have got to be a few brave souls left in Washington, a few good men and women who have the courage to be patriotic enough to step up to the line and fight for America and the American people!

Forgive me for being somewhat behind the times, but having been on vacation without benefit of a computer, the news about “Gutting Labor Rights for Nurses and Millions of Others” is one that slipped by!  Having worked in both union and non-union hospitals, I know first hand what unions can do for the quality of patient care and believe me when I tell you the quality of care where nurses' unions have a say is far better!  Thanks entirely to the nurses' union in California, standards of care and nurse to patient ratios are written into California law, you can be assured that nurses are doing their utmost to make sure the best care possible is available to you.  A majority of nurses still believes in putting the patient first and union nurses' efforts are generally directed towards quality and safety for the patient.  The bottom line and the profit margin are the major considerations for a whole lot of non-union hospitals and even though nurses strive for better care, nurses have no real administrative input without the “clout” of a union behind them!

"Today Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has approved that request from General George Casey who wants those battle-tested troops with their Stryker armored vehicles to patrol and provide security in Baghdad. The families are getting the news today that those troops who thought they were coming home have been extended for up to six months additional duty in Iraq."  I wonder, is Bush still planning a month’s vacation down on the ranch come August?

* * *

And America thinks George Bush won the last election!  HA, it was handed to him on a silver platter by the Supreme Court of the United States in 2000 and again in 2004 by the Repuglicans and Diebold!  What do you want to bet if the Democrats ever regain some degree of power in Washington, the Repuglicans will be all over everywhere shouting voter reform from the rooftops and the snow covered mountains in Alaska!

This is what happens when a spoiled brat frat boy with a rich father bites off way more than he can chew!!! Unfortunately, a whole lot of innocent people suffer his mistakes!  “But the record of failure goes deeper than that. It began in the president's first week, when Bush decided he would not repeat what he perceived as his predecessor's mistake by allowing his presidency to be mired in the fruitless search for Israeli-Palestinian peace. Even though Clinton had got tantalisingly close, Bush decided to drop it. While Henry Kissinger once racked up 24,230 miles in just 34 days of shuttle diplomacy, Bush's envoys have been sparing in their visits to the region. The result is that the core conflict has been allowed to fester. Had it been solved, or even if there had been a serious effort to solve it, the current crisis would have been unimaginable. Instead, Bush's animating idea has been that the peoples of the Middle East can be bombed into democracy and terrorised into moderation. It has proved one of the great lethal mistakes of his abominable presidency - and the peoples of Israel and Lebanon are paying the price.”

“BLITZER: She's pushing hard for an international peacekeeping force -- the secretary of state -- but she and the president don't want U.S. troops involved. KING: They don't want U.S. troops involved. They say the U.S. military is stretched too thin.”  Out of the mouths of babes and the ignorant, sometimes comes the most profound information!  Note the “they say,”  and just who do you think will jump on this tidbit?
