A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Micah Tillman

I dream of a day when the statement, "Either a Republican or Democrat will be elected President" is no longer a certainty. Viable independent, third-, and fourth-party candidates are the heroes of this hope. I want to walk into the voting booth feeling like I have a real choice.

The killing in Hawijah, Iraq of 18-year old Corporal Jeremy Shank of Jackson, Missouri (population 12,000) merited an article in the Southeast Missourian. Cpl. Shank was killed on Sept. 6, 2006 and I was in that part of Missouri when his body came home for burial. According to the Pentagon, Shank was on a "dismounted security patrol when he encountered enemy forces using small arms."

The nuke power industry now wants $50 billion and more in loan guarantees to build new atomic reactors. As it strong-arms Congress, the warnings of the great Dr. John Gofman, who passed away last week at 88, loom ever larger.

The obvious reason for this
It would appear to me is
Karl knew Dick was as evil
And conniving as he is.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

George Bush and his minions want us to think there’s progress in Iraq, but I ask you, how can they claim progress anywhere when they can’t even take care of the “Homeland” as evidenced by the recent “GAO evaluation of the massive Department of Homeland Security”?  “JOE JOHNS…When it comes to emergency preparedness and response, which is what you want your Homeland Security Department to be really good at, a new report indicates the feds have pretty much flunked. SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D), LOUISIANA: This report is sort of the definitive authority that virtually nothing much has been done, missing 18 out of 25 marks, a nation still unprepared to prevent or respond to a catastrophic disaster…JOHNS: Claire McCaskill used to be the auditor for the state of the Missouri. She says the problem isn't the grading system; it's the failures GAO found.”  Hmm, its time for America to “kick” some “ass” out of office!  Read my lips, IMPEACH-IMPEACH-IMPEACH!

Robert Greenwald: The Real Rudy

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Robert Greenwald

"It's just not possible."

That was the sentence we heard over and over from families who had firefighter sons, brothers, husbands and fathers killed on 9/11, from experts on emergency response, and from investigative journalists. It was just not possible that Rudy could so distort what happened on 9/11 and his role on that terrible day.
