Cindy Sheehan: At What Price, Safety?

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I am consistently amazed at things that right-wing nut jobs throw at me to justify their support of an unjustifiable war. Seriously, when you watch Generals, Ambassadors, Senators, Congressmen, and pundits who still cheerlead for a miserable, failed, and murderous policy, you can almost see the skepticism in their eyes, too. They know they are lying for their masters now, if they, like George and Dick, didn't always know they were lying.

"[Palast] said you won the 2004 election - isn't that amazing?
There were multiple reports of disenfranchising of Black voters on the day of the election in 2004 in Florida and Ohio. ... How could you concede the election on the day?"

Amy Branham: Iraq IS About Oil

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
By Amy Branham

Alan Greenspan said so in his new book. Iraq is about Oil. Gee, thanks for finally clearing that up! Mighty kind of you, Sir. May I ask, though, why in the hell didn't you come out with this years ago, before the war actually started? You could have done a lot of good, saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of lives if you had opened your mouth and told your truths before now.

GOP's Dirty Tricks Begin

Washington, DC--In today's New York Times, Bob Herbert takes a closer look at a Republican sponsored ballot initiative being proposed to change the way California distributes its electoral votes -- a change that the GOP believes would allow them to pick up seats in California and win the White House. This initiative is just more of the GOP's "dirty electoral tricks" by the same national Republican players that funded the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Herbert says, "This crowd is no more interested in genuine electoral reform than Britney Spears is."

Rumors about the secretive Blackwater company
Have gotten louder and have long persisted

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Regarding Hillary Clinton’s Health Care Proposal: “CROWLEY: No sale on the Republican side. Rudy Giuliani called it ‘a scheme that includes more government mandates and more big bureaucracy.’ Mitt Romney said ‘it was Washington health care born and bred. In her plan, we have a government insurance, instead of private insurance. In her plan, it's crafted by Washington.’” To anyone who thinks privatization is a better, more efficient way to provide services to the consumer, take a long hard look at what privatization did for health care in these United States! Heath care has become a behemoth that only the rich can afford. And the Repuglican Party that owes their souls to the lobbyists on K Street, the Repuglican Party that represents corporations, conglomerates, and the almighty dollar, want to keep it that way!

Last Tuesday, the 6th anniversary of 9/11, was actually the first since the tragedy that I spent the day at home, not going to Ground Zero or attending other memorial services. Instead, I tuned the TV to Channel 11, so that even as I went about my business, the annual naming of the 2,750 victims unfolded within easy earshot.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

On mainstream political reporting: "... the entire way the arc of the story is told ... it never ever looks into the merits of anybody's claim on either side. ... You never, ever, ever assess the merits. You describe them. You compare them to other things. And then you bring in an expert. And every single story has that same formula. ... It's up to citizen journalism and populist journalism, like we're doing online and in progressive radio, to do basic, basic, basic reporting. It's embarrassing."

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Another lying Republican on a local level in Seattle. Again, finding a Republican today, who can run on truth, honesty, and justice . . . well, awards should be given for such finds, because it seems they are becoming extinct. Even those who might be considered honest, still support this criminal and treasonous Bush administration, and that makes them an accomplice to all of the high crimes and misdemeanors.
