Subject: Bush and his Military And Rove
What is it with bush and the military? Is this his solution to everything? This creature really scares the hell out of me.
What about rove? Is he going to escape after all the treasonous acts he has committed?
Subject: GOP: party of torture, racism & poverty
Maybe there are people who still believe the Republican Party is a grand old party, based on high ideals and moral integrity. Just don't tell that to the GOP leaders in DC.
Under Bush/Cheney, the White House is not only advocating torture (which is known to produce unreliable intelligence), they are threatening to veto a defense budget if it contains language banning torture. This makes the Republicans the official party of torture. Welcome to the illustrious company of Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler, Mr. Bush. I am curious if the people who voted for Bush/Cheney last year realize they were voting for an inhumane torture policy, a policy in direct conflict with the Geneva Conventions.
As to the racism charge, I only need two words: Hurricane Katrina. It is obvious from the lack of response to Hurricane Katrina that Republicans are comfortable promoting racism with their policies, or in this case, lack of policies or planning. This is why Bush got a measly two percent approval ratings from blacks a few weeks ago.
The poverty charge is obvious: 33% of Bush/GOP Tax Cuts went to the upper 1%, who are mostly millionaires. Last week congress voted on a bill to cut spending by some $50 billion dollars. Virtually all this money hits hard at poor people, from food stamp cuts to Medicaid cuts, this was a nasty slap in the face of poor people in America. These harsh cuts will drive up the exploding poverty rate, which is being fueled by Bush's stealth class warfare policies, including tax-cuts heavily skewed toward the already wealthy.
What makes these budget cuts most disgusting is the fact this upcoming week, this same congress is trying to ram through $70 billion in tax cuts, with the vast majority going to rich people and rich corporations. The Republicans really are a Reverse-Robin-Hood, robbing from the poor to give to the rich.
So it is official, the Republican Party is the party of torture, racism and poverty.
Are you still glad you voted for the worst president in history last November?
PS - You can easily expand this list. How about the party of fiscal irresponsibility (exploding deficit)? Or how about the party of propaganda and lying (anything Bush/Cheney said about WMDs prior to Iraq)? Or how about the party of corruption and money laundering (DeLay, Frist, Abramoff, Ney...)? The list goes on and on.
Subject: What the Democratic Party Think About The War Now??!!
With all the shouts of happiness and jubilation about the new found "backbone," if you look closely at the attitude of the Democrats in the house and the senate toward the war, you will find that nothing had changed, and that most of them still support continuing the war in Iraq. Many of them especially the "honorable" senators, Clinton and Biden, even want to send additional 80 thousands more troops??!! They are saying regardless of how we got into the war, we cannot cut and run, which is exactly what the Bush administration is saying. "dah" So, they will continue supporting the war regardless of the expressed desire of the majority of the Democratic base to stop the war. So, What is the reason of these shouts of happiness and jubilation??!!

[BuzzFlash Note: We like Larry Beinhart's advice on this question: The road out of Iraq (Baltimore Sun). Watch for an upcoming BuzzFlash interview with Beinhart, too.]
I was just reading about the 2000 men.... and all of the planes, helicopters, cars and MONEY it took to protect the "IDIOT" on his trip to Argentina.......Money paid by "WE THE PEOPLE" I always hear this "master of disaster" telling about how he MUST protect the American people.........Hmmmmmmmmm ...... WHO IS PROTECTING WHOM ??????? I surely don't remember it costing all of this..... to protect BILL CLINTON....when he went abroad.........It seems to me that I remember seeing him down in the streets shaking hands with people wherever he went...........
Subject: Prince Chas. covered, Bush ignored by Denver electronic media
The three main network newscasts on Sat. (5 Nov) evening, along with Fox 31, did not once indicate the trouble Bush was having in South America. Americans had no idea about the riots protesting Bush's plan, and the fact Bush got his hat handed to him.
Riots were shown in Paris with little information.
Prince Charles and Camilla were given quite a bit of air time.
Most Americans, I dare say, have no idea where Bush is at present. In the true sense of the joke, take this man who calls himself president...please.
