We know that the president's world
Has long been sealed hermetically

For those in the U.S. House or Senate inclined to sustain a presidential veto of a bill that will provide basic health care to more than 3 million additional American children, ask yourselves this question: Are you willing to explain your decision to a schoolroom of fragile young children who cannot afford treatment for whooping cough, measles, leukemia, or juvenile diabetes? Are you willing to explain this to them, human to human?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to the United States has prompted an outcry, including protests and tabloid headlines calling him "evil" and a "madman." The Bush administration, which maintains that "all options" remain on the table with Iran, should vigorously pursue the diplomatic option, instead of moving inexorably toward the military option.

Jules Carlysle: T'was the Night Before Ji'had

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Jules Carlysle

Listen my friends, to the story I tell…
About fighting terrorists and doing it well.
It began in the fall of two thousand and four
The Intelligence Service heard whispers and more…

Brash kids ran their mouths in the public domain
Sought like-minds for meetings by bus and by train.
On Web sites and chatrooms espousing radical ways
They were found out completely in a matter of days.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Just like a Repuglican “chickenhawk,” the Repuglicans who are up for re-election don’t want the public to know they’re pro-war! “These Senators, of course, are from the WINO caucus -- they are Waverers In Name Only who say they're 'wavering' in their support for Bush's policies, but keep voting against any measure that would actually force a change in those policies.” Actually they’re the same Repuglican cowards they’ve always been, they don’t even have the backbone to back up their pro-war votes.

That goes without saying but what would
Amaze me though
Is hearing Bush at a McCain speech shout,
"Don't tase me, bro!"

The war on voting rights continues. In the latest development, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear an appeal of a voting rights case over whether or not government identification requirements discriminate against the poor and minorities. The lower court opinion under review was written by an appeals court judge who believes voting distracts citizens from their most important duty: shopping.
