Subject: George Bush continues to ask OTHERS
George should have gone on to tell his personal story of sacrifice, how he left his life of privilege to fight communism on the front lines of Viet Nam... And George could have mentioned the financial sacrifices that he has made as a person of wealth to pay for the war on terror... And most especially George Bush could have told of his family’s personal sacrifice when his own children, led by the "family values" so sacred to Republicans, joined the armed services in this war effort with its solemn religious implications...
George Bush knows what sacrifice is, and he knows he doesn't want to get anywhere near it himself...
Subject: Hold Gonzales Accountable (No "Torturer
Possibly most frightening is the certainty that, as his master's loyal servant, an Attorney General Gonzales would erect legal barriers further separating from public scrutiny an already unprecedentedly secretive administration (e.g., Cheney's secret energy task force; the inconclusive, buried Plame case, etc.).
If Gonzales is confirmed, how will the FBI work in a Justice Dept. led by a Torturer General? What will happen to the Freedom of Information Act? In how many ways will the intolerable USA Patriot Act be exploited to further erode privacy and individual liberties? Will Gonzales protect the right to vote (for Democrats)? Why should he?
As legal counsel to Gov. Bush in Texas, Gonzales produced sloppy briefs concerning death-row clemency appeals that ignored some convicts' innocence; in other words, briefs designed to justify Bush's predisposition to deny clemency.
Senators should not "save their ammunition"
for Supreme Court nominations. That's like saying,
"I'll wait until the fire comes up to the
second floor, then I'll really use my bucket of
water." Senators should fight hard now and
train their muscles for more effective resistance
to the Supreme Court nominations.
Subject: RE: the "Fools for Christ" Scalia headline
I am a liberal and dislike Scalia's politics very much, but I also consider myself a Christian, one who is, at his best, a "fool for Christ." This phrase, from I Cor. 4:10, doesn't mean one should be a Dubya-like ignorant person in life; rather, it means that one should share his faith chiefly by example, by living against the grain of the world, if need be, in order to show one's faith. I like your site, but BuzzFlash shows a Dubya-like ignorance by suggesting that being a fool for Christ is to be a Republican idiot. I don't see it that way. Nor does Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton or Al Gore or the millions of other liberal Christians. Please wise up. Your ignorance will not cause me to become a Republican (that, for me, would be something like a sin), but you will cause me to stop visiting your site.
Subject: Define the Rethugs!!
Democrats need to define, rather than be defined by the Rethugs. More and more talk is being made of the pResident wanting to change Soc. Sec., because Social Security is going broke. Well we all know the bastard is lying!! He repeats this lie everywhere he goes and if this keeps up, Bush will get away with it, like he has everything else!
Democrats need to have a commercial stating that Soc Sec is NOT in danger of running out of money with HARD FACTS and ACCURATE FIGURES and the statement: "People lie (with a pic of GWB), . . . . .Numbers DON'T!" George Soros, we need your help NOW!
Just an idea, but I think it would work if we can get a commercial out now, and run it day and night and keep repeating it over and over and over again! You know what they say, if you say it enough times it must be true...well we can play this game too.

Subject: That disgusting sound you hear is George W. Bush sucking
the life out of this country
That one paragraph so infuriated me that I have been unable to let it go. Last week I wrote a letter to the editor (Tennessean, still not published) expressing my frustration that George W. Bush would have the gall to ask my grandchildren to serve in a cause "larger than your wants" when he himself refused to do the same thing only 30 years ago.
This self-indulgent hypocrite is so wrapped up in the security blanket of his yes people that he’s lost touch with the realities of his own self-serving past. This is the guy who refused to serve in Vietnam, opting to spend his service in a stateside champagne Guard unit.
Excuse me if I just can’t find it in myself to turn a blind eye to the hypocrisy of this warmonger who would ship my grandchildren off to die in a war of choice while he and his lounge in the comfort of their pampered compounds.
I wonder if George has asked Jenna or Babs to,"Make the choice to serve in a cause larger than your wants, larger than yourself"?
In case you don’t know the answer to that question I’ll tell you, HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Believe me when I say, "You will never see a Bush of any gender
risk their life in the defense or service of this country," they’re
too busy trying to suck the life out of it.
Subject: Bush has no mandate for war! Democrats in the mainstream

Subject: Forget The Democrats!
Everyone keeps clamoring that the Democrats should do this or the Democrats should do that in the next election. My advice is forget the Democrats. Ralph was right, there is not a nickel's difference between them. Another thing, no one is talking about replacing the touch screen vote machines, they will wait until 6 months before the 2008 election and say there is not enough time to do anything now wait until 2012. Man! when will we wake up?

Yeah sure, Gonzal'ass' never remembered trying to excuse the governor, of all people, from jury duty. I guess if I did something unusual for the governor of my state, people would just think I'm a little short on memory. It's bad enough that anyone will take this kind of crap on the street, our democratic representatives are going to take it in the Senate. So when the DNC comes to me again for a donation, since they're so used to it, I'll tell them to "eat shit"!!

Subject: Why is the US thumping the Bible?
Republican, Democrat, Right, Left, it doesn’t matter; this is a question for all of us. Is the United States thumping the Bible at the rest of the world?
The message is apparently coming across loud and clear internationally, yet it’s not a message we ought to be sending. It’s almost one of hypocrisy. Whether they listen to the newly re-elected President Bush give his inaugural speech, or listen to the missionaries claiming to be aid workers showing up in their refugee camps, again the message is coming across loud and clear. The United States is sending a very bad impression to the rest of the world, that our mission is Christian. From our preaching President, to what could be called a Holy War in Iraq, to the proselytizing of needy victims in Sri Lanka after the Tsunami’s...
I ask: Where in GOD’S name is the separation of church and state? At a time when our intentions are constantly being questioned around the world, I’m quite certain that a Christian mission is not one we ought to be sending. Not only is it coming from our so-called humanitarian aid workers but loud and clear from our Commander in Chief. I find it anomalous that today everyone is so shocked by the preacher-like words of President Bush. It can’t be because his message is new, because it’s not. And I don’t think it’s because they agree or necessarily disagree; but because time & time again the man seems to ignore the separation of church and state and comes across as sounding like his Presidency is actually one of missionary work.
Whether you are Christian or not, this is most certainly a horrible message to send from the leader of the free world, especially now. In the end I think it would be juvenile to believe that elected officials can somehow check their faith at the door of their offices. A person's faith makes up a lot of who they are as a living being, but I think it is just to, not only assume, but insist that, when addressing the public or public policy, it is certainly to be kept in check. There is the line that must not be crossed, period. Our nation, our public is not a Christian public, it’s a free republic.
Just ask the Jews, Muslims, Atheists, and dare I even say it, the gays of this country. If not, where’s their voice in this so-called land of freedom? Our elected officials are elected to govern this nation, not use their office for their own religious movement. To do so would make the United States guilty of living such a blatant hypocrisy.
The world hears us thumping; do you?
Subject: Stand for something or fall for anything
Subject: Torturing the Enemy
Putting some panties on the head of the enemy or allowing a dog to
scare the hell out of an enemy does not rise to the level of 'torture.'
Your articles are structured and written to lead your readers to the
conclusion that we are committing acts of torture as severe as Saddam
or the insurgents in Iraq so frequently perform. This is hardly the
case and you know it. Next time you and your writers sit down to do
a story denouncing the United States and its institutions, I suggest
you download and view the videotapes of the be-heading of innocent
people. Then you will truly know what torture is.
Subject: Remember When...
Remember when the republicans to a man and woman refused to vote for Clinton's tax bill stating that it would kill the economy? Remember when the republicans shut down the government and almost caused a constitutional crisis (something they are very good at doing, btw)? Remember when the republicans lambasted and criticized a sitting president while he was conducting foreign policy by bombing Yugoslavia (not something I necessarily agreed with then or now)?
Why, oh why, can't I see the democrats unite as a bloc and refuse en masse to vote for any of Bush's nominees? Why can't the democrats get together and have someone emerge as a whip who demands that the party vote the same way on every single issue that is dear to their constituents and against the republicans? There shouldn't be any one democrat who votes for that war criminal the prevaricator Condi Rice. There shouldn't be one democrat who votes for anything that Bush can turn around and use to show bipartisan support. There shouldn't be one stinking democrat who is permitted to call him or herself with that label who does vote for any of this administration's disingenuous attempts to erode the bedrock on which this society was built.
Any democrat who does side with the nazis running this government, and I use that term in the truest sense of craven, murderous, ideologues who seek nothing less than the complete destruction of our republic, should be expelled from the party and allowed to side with the republicans as a republican. Cut off the funding from the DNCC or the DNSC; let the turncoat approach his/her constituents hat in hand and explain why it was so important to vote against the interests of the United States and in his or her own self-interest.
The Liebermans, and Reids, and Pelosis, and Kerrys need to be shown the door with a footprint on their butts. Kerry might be introducing some legislation related to children's health care, but where was he when it counted? Lying on his back, legs in the air and smiling, conceding the most important election of this century to the idiot from Crawford and his criminal cabal. Time for some serious soul-searching, folks.
Jeb Bush is already making his play for the White House in 2008 by proposing that the federal government cede control of Medicare to the states. This will be a distraction from his brother's frontal assault on social security, but it demands a national response from the democrats. It calls out for someone in the democratic party in Washington to name this for what it is: An attempt to distract people in Florida (with its large senior citizen population) from his brother's attempt to derail social security while at the same time allowing the republican party to create another crisis that needs to be addressed. Just so happens that the crisis again involves a stitch in the social safety net.
Speaking of tearing the social safety net, someone needs to tell Bill Clinton that we don't really want him to run again. He put the first cut in the safety net by condemning millions of children to poverty, thanks to his welfare reform. No thank you Bubba, your politics suck worse than Monica and I won't swallow that load again.
Let the republicans be the ones who cut and paste the constitution to allow Arnold to run for president; the democrats should not be a part of amending the constitution. I don't want Clinton anywhere near the government ever again, Mr or Mrs. What he allowed to happen to the party and to the country thanks to his libido is inexcusable.
We need to send a clear message that the policies and representatives
of the Democratic Leadership Council are moribund and that anyone
pimping their line will be ostracized by democratic voters. Let's
see someone with a set of cojones stand up in Congress and issue a
challenge to these republican thieves. Throw down the gauntlet, for
chrissakes. If it was good enough for Cheney to tell a senior democrat
to go f**k himself, then it's good enough for a true representative
of the democratic party to tell Cheney and his entire stable to go
f**k themselves. And that includes the turncoat democrats who are
only in it for the fashion.

I have noticed something odd.

The movie is not paid for and they owe money for the stock footage they obtained from news sources. The event was held at Frank Dorrel's house. He wrote "Addicted to War," a book about war for younger people.

Subject: John McCain what a Maverick
I just saw McCain on the Sunday talk circuit. For a long time I came to believe that his name was John "he's such a maverick" McCain. The fact that the mainstream media can call him a Maverick is just another example of how out of touch with reality they are. McCain is a media creation pure and simply. I love the fact that McCain is back out there as a foreign policy critic, after Bush is safely elected and he can stop whoring for the president.
I give the man credit he was smart enough to realize how elections are decided in this country and realized it's better to be installed as a senator, and mouth the words of the monied elite, than it is to drive a cab. And as for the big media outlets they wouldn't know a maverick if they fell over them and chances are they wouldn't put them on their stations anyway.

Subject: Where do you dump the body?
Where do you dump the body? That is the first problem after a homicide. I once read of one ingenious murderer who killed his wife and realized that as long as he had control of the body, no one would accidentally find the corpse, and that crime would not be found out. So he took the body and moved to another state and continued with his life as if nothing happened. He continued to renew her magazine subscriptions, answered letters from relatives, opened a new bank account, cashed her social security checks, paid her taxes, all to make it appear that everything was normal and to hide the fact his wife was murdered in a calculated act of spousal betrayal. He kept the corpse in the attic, all dressed up and sitting in a chair with religious music playing on that radio. He would even talk to her lifeless body so to keep his spirits up and maintain the psychological frame of mind necessary to not let his behavior betray the secret that she was dead.
In this day on January 20, 2005, the deceased is Democracy, which was murdered by the current Republican administration on the night of November 2, 2004 in a fatal fraudulent election. Now the body has to be hidden to conceal the homicide. The current government has decided that the best way to conceal the homicide is to pretend that the victim is still alive and convince everyone else that Democracy is alive. So the government and its co-conspirator, the mass media talking head personalities, have decided to have a birthday party in Democracy’s honor. The invitations have been sent out, limousines are out in force, an army of relatives are singing the praise of dear Mrs. Democracy and what a great person she is. There is music, balloons, confetti, dancers, fireworks, speeches, and parades! How could anyone doubt that she isn’t alive?
But in all the excitement nobody actually asked to see Mrs. Democracy. We just get a written message conveying to us that everything is wonderful, and thank you so much for your attending the party and for all the nice things said about Lady Democracy. And we get to see an old video of her vacationing in Florida last year.
The problem that the husband who killed his wife had, however, is the body began to rot. It rotted, and rotted, and rotted, and started soaking through the carpet, and then the floor, then to the room below. Flies in the millions, big green flies, filled the attic until the attic windows turned a florescent metallic green as millions of flies covered the windows blocking out the sunlight. Maggots emerged in moving white masses, gorging the body cavities until it began to jerk and squirm, looking like it was alive again. But this was only a discomfort for the husband living in the house. Soon a stench filled the house and started waffling out into the community with a faint odor that at first only the neighborhood dogs noticed, causing them to howl and bark. Nobody in the neighborhood could figure out what was wrong so the dogs were tied up and ordered to stop barking. And then one day, one hot day, while the neighborhood families sat down to dinner, it happened. The ripe stench of rotting flesh began to seep out of the house; the body that had been concealed in the attic could stay there no more. The smell of rotting flesh overwhelmed the entire community and people started to gag and vomit. The source of this nauseating putrid stench was unmistakable to everyone.
Do you smell it yet?
Subject: sacrificing children
I was reading Cindy Sheehan's article on the sacrificing of children to Bush's war when I thought that in a nation that defines itself by its religiosity, a good strong visual against the sacrifice of children in wartimes would be to hold a rally or demonstration using the biblical direction to Job to sacrifice his son. The performance of however many (the more the better) anti-war mothers and fathers pretending to sacrifice their white shrouded children, as in biblical times, upon stone altars would certainly create some controversy, no? It would be a visual emphasis to the pain suffered by all those parents who have had their children sacrificed to this unilateral and unjust war in Iraq and any others to follow.
My heart cries out every time I hear that one more human (human, as in every person regardless of nationality) has died as a consequence of the actions of an administration that has most of its leaders blissfully ignorant of the physically true and real visuals of war.
I am not an American, but I am certainly aware of the political machinations of many countries. I read. I also know that Bush is pressuring our country to accept the failed missile defence thing that most Canadians reject. That is, unless they follow and support our Canadian version of Bush; our minority leader, Steven Harper, [he of the original Reform (Deformed) Party, then renamed the Alliance (Alien) Party, now presently, the New Conservative (translation: neo-con) Party: the bland jerk party], who would take away as many of our freedoms as Bush has yours. He wanted us to join you and send our children, too, but I and many other women wrote our Prime Minister saying that we did not want our children to die. Not to say that we had an effect at all since Chretien, then Prime Minister of Canada, would not go against the United Nations, much to the relief of us mothers.
Though neither of my children are in the military, the thought of them dying in an obviously trumped up war was abhorrent! That so many mothers in the States are losing their children, as are mothers in Iraq and elsewhere, is reprehensible! War is not the answer and we all must band worldwide to stop wars everywhere and for whatever reason.
Go Cindy, go! Hold those accountable to their actions, bring them to justice. The world needs peace and tolerance and less consumerism (oil). People deserve to live and to let others live.

Subject : Please stop appearing on FOX "News"
I suggest asking Dems to stop making appearances on FOX "news" stations. Every time I turn on FOX and see a Democrat they are being put on the defensive and used as a punching bag. In addition, their appearance on this network only lends credibility to their claims of being a source for news. This network is far from a source of news but more of a propaganda tool of the far right. This weekend I saw Dianne Feinstein ready to sell out the party after being asked a couple of leading questions by Chris Wallace. Stop appearing on this network, let them become exactly what they want to be. A right wing tool. Maybe then people will realize what a fraud this news network really is and tune out.

Subject: Social Security Fixed Fairly For All ....
President Bush's private personal savings account plan for Social Security endangers the financial security of America's retirement, and transfers hard-earned money to brokers and financial managers. There is a simple solution that Congress seems to be ignoring: Eliminate the cap on the Social Security tax. Let the $100,000,000, the $1,000,000, the $100,000, and the $10,000 earner all pay the same percentage of income into social security. Wouldn't this simple fix guarantee the security of Social Security forever? Shouldn't this idea be at the top of the conversation. Shouldn't Congress "save or reform" Social Security in a way that serves the interests of hard-working Americans, and stop extending extra privileges to the rich? Why is no one suggesting this obvious idea ?
