There is something morally repugnant about claiming to support a war that involves the destruction of thousands of human lives unless you are truly committed to the cause this war advances. One test to see how committed you really are, is whether you would sacrifice your own life for it or the lives of others whom you love. If not, then you have no business underwriting others sacrificing their lives for the same cause. Those who fail this test are clearly hypocrites. Unfortunately, in America, there are a substantial number of such pseudo-patriots. Sitting behind the wheel, these bumper-sticker patriots take it slow, but play fast and furious with the lives of others. Safety first, at least for themselves -- unfortunately not for the service men and women who dodge land mines and the fire of automatic weapons in the hellish war that these "safe" drivers support.


Several years late and billions of dollars short: “A president with dismal approval ratings … obvious problems for Republican politicians … a green light for lawmakers on Capitol Hill and presidential candidates to put distance between themselves and an unpopular president.” Repuglican politicians gave George Bush a silver platter and the means to carry out every diabolical scheme he’s contrived during the last 6 years. “Snubbing” him now does not redemption spell!!! They are as guilty as he is for every rotten thing he’s done!!!

I have just completed reading a portion of the letters written by the wonderful chorus of Scooter sycophants to Judge Reggie Walton. I think they have convinced me that Scooter doesn't need a prison sentence; he needs to be committed to a mental facility for schizophrenic tendencies. No one understands the disconnect between the actions and character of Scooter. It is a clear-cut case of temporary insanity or demon possession.

Countering Terrorism - How Not To Do It


Editor's Note: This originally appeared on ConsortiumNews.com. This is their note that preceded the memo:

There's a famous, possibly apocryphal story about Lyndon Johnson visiting Vietnam during his presidency. On a carrier flight deck, he started striding toward a helicopter when a Navy officer said to him, "No, Mr. President, your helicopter is this way."

LBJ looked him in the eye and said, "Son, they're ALL my helicopters."

People such as Lieberman insist
Iraq these days is no longer a bummer
So, why doesn't "Joevember"
Vacation there the rest of the summer?


Since June of 2005, BuzzFlash has been honoring a weekly "Wings of Justice Award Winner
," generally nominated by our readers.

The "Wings of Justice Award" is meant to give recognition to, as did John F. Kennedy’s "Profiles in Courage," an act of patriotic courage on the part of an individual – or group. Some of the persons who have won the award might otherwise have even been supportive of positions we might disagree with, but at some point they stood their ground for the Constitution, truth and justice.
