BuzzFlash,

With Bush Republicans, charity begins and ends at home . . . their home. Have Americans noticed that when Republicans talk about bootstraps, this country becomes strapped with debt, death, and destruction?

If you know anybody who still supports Bush's and Cheney's criminal war against Iraq, have them watch a short news report aired on July 16 on ABC News titled Exclusive Look at Soldiers on the Front Line. (Note: You will have to go to the page and click on the headline) It will sicken you and anyone who watches it.

The massive earthquake that shook Japan this week nearly killed millions in a nuclear apocalypse.

It also produced one of the most terrifying sentences ever buried in a newspaper. As reported deep in The New York Times, the Tokyo Electric Company admitted that "the force of the shaking caused by the earthquake had exceeded the design limits of the reactors, suggesting that the plant's builders had underestimated the strength of possible earthquakes in the region."

As Congress debates whether to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, George Bush is trying to buy time. He and Dick Cheney have no intention of ever pulling out of Iraq.

MUST READS: Republicans Have Ignored the Real Terrorists

Washington, DC - Today, the Washington Post and The New York Times shed more light on the National Intelligence Estimate released yesterday that confirmed what Democrats and experts have been saying for some time-the war in Iraq has kept us from fighting the real war on terror and enabled terrorist networks like Al Qaeda to rebuild.

This amount is no doubt much higher than had been planned
But now (phew!) Roger Mahony won't have to take the stand.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

If anyone is really interested in why Bush doesn't give a damn about anything, how many soldiers are dying in Iraq, the Constitution, the polls, his legacy, the Repuglican Party, Congress, etc. etc. etc., it can be found in this not so little tid-bit from "retired diplomat, former U.S. Ambassador Dan Simpson"---"There is also the late-at-night, eerie concern that Mr. Bush has in his head some sort of scenario where, for reasons of national security - real or drummed up - the 2008 elections will have to be postponed and he will get to stay on. My suspicions have at their base the feeling I have that, given their operating style now, this bunch will not leave the White House easily in 2009." A terrifying but highly probable happening! Impeach now!!!
