Sent to CNN, 12/21/01:
jaw actually dropped when I saw Anne Coulter on Sound Off with Paula Zahn
this morning. Does your staff do ANY research on the credentials of the
people you put on the air?
could call it "God and Patriots" (subtitle-"The Lord Hates
Liberals"). Sounds like a winner to me.
I've just been informed that CNN had Ann Coulter on this morning and introduced her as a "constitutional law expert" instead of the bigot and anti-semite that she is.
In addition, on their website they have a link to the ridiculous Bush 2004 "100 Day Terrorism Report" and they don't identify it as the fluff piece it is.
In addition to notifying your readers, what do you suggest we do to start some sort of boycot of CNN until they agree never to have that bigot Coulter on again? We need to put the pressure on them that the right-wing would do in a similar situation. I look forward to hearing your suggestions.
Keep up the good work, and I am sending a $50 contribution.
Sorry, I just don't buy it. How many cockpit tapes have we heard that have captured the last, frightening moments of a plane & its crew? We heard the Egyptian Air tape of the captain fighting with the co-captain...This just raises more suspicion.
Here's an interesting tidbit I read in a recent Vanity Fair. Deena Burnett called the FBI after her husband called her. During that call, she apprised him of what had happened with the other three hijacked planes. The FBI put her on hold...apparently for sometime. Something sounds so wrong about that. A woman calling in with a report of a first hand account and they keep her waiting????
Can we organize a boycott of ABC, citing Stossel's horrendous conduct? It might also be a means to build an important bridge between us and the Greens, who are concerned with environmental causes. If we could build a nationwide campaign and leak it to competitors that the boycott will occur, maybe we can actually accomplish something. Scalia's nomination is another area where we need to contact our senators en masse!!!
Keep up the good work.
I support the military and the war against Terrorists but I do not support Republican domestic policies nor do I recognize George W Bush as my president. I consider George W Bush an illegitimate pResident.
"Would George W Bush consider the creation of America by General George Washington, the original George W, unnecessary Nation Building?"
"Have US soldiers fought to defend America for over 200 years so Republicans can mistreat the poor, the elderly, the disabled, to ruin the economy, to bust unions, to ruin the environment and to create a theocratic police state?"
"Did soldiers fight wars and defend this country so the Republican Party can destroy democracy in the form of stealing the 2000 presidential election by disenfranchising millions of voters, then enlisting the Supreme Court to install him as president?"
More people in this country voted for Al Gore in 2000 as well as in Florida but the Republicans tampered with the voting and counting process.
The Republican Party leaders remain stuck somewhere between the 19th century and 1929.
George W Bush lost domestic prosperity and has no domestic purpose. His administration got caught by surprise and lost the Twin Towers and part of the Pentagon.
No amount of flag waving will change the facts about this illegitimate president. I love America but not the domestic policies of the Republican Party.
The Emperor has no clothes.
RE: Enron and the Bushites
Gee, do you think the rabid Republicans who harassed and besieged President Clinton for eight years over Whitewater -- a $200,000 land deal on which the Clintons LOST their investment -- will go after GWBush and his minions concerning their involvement with Enron? Don't hold your breath; the rabid Republicans are NOT equal opportunity badgerers.
What was that quaint phrase about "restoring integrity to the White House"? Hmm.
Oh, duh. I said this as soon as the head dope suggested this asinine email scheme. I have a better tip: ignore the moron; find the U. S. military's site and use the email system they have set up to correspond with those serving their country.
I watched the Noonan appearance on 'The Daily Show' and, in defense of Jon Stewart, he did get his gibes in at both Noonan and Reagan.
point he brought up was Noonan's preference for Bush I and Reagan and
attributing it to the fact that she worked for both. He then asked wouldn't
she be inclined to defend Clinton had she worked in his administration.
He looked rather unconvinced as she spouted her usual "oh, but SO
many who worked for him hate him", especially when no names were
Then, when Noonan blathered about Clinton's "493 scandals vs. Reagan's 1", Stewart said, "Yeah, but that one was a doozy." He then proceeded to poke more fun at Reagan by referring the "Teflon President" title and saying that it was like Ronnie was rubber, Clinton glue...
On his part, the sarcasm was fairly dripping and the facial expressions were telling. Noonan was, at least a few times, visibly uncomfortable. Other time--being a conservative and, thereby, totally devoid of a sense of humor--his remarks went right over her head.
Stewart may be polite and appear that he is cutting someone some slack, but he has a very sly way of getting his point across.
Note: We agree that Stewart is a master of wit and sarcasm, and, with
correspondents Colbert and Carrell (both Second City veterans), the show,
by far, offers some of the best satire on TV. However, we think Stewart
pulled his punches with Noonan.]
I could have written this piece word for word. Thanks, Gloria, for articulating what must be for many of us a new way of life. I, too, was a news junkie - now I, too, watch re-runs and old movies! I escape the unreality of cable news & my disgust of Bush's half-ass war; the ugliness of the Afghan bombed out terrain....ad nauseum, ad infinitum. I loathe Bush's mediocrity, Rumsfeld's cockiness, & their complete oblivion to the majority of Americans who voted against them. I see their bravado in this "war." I see their comfort in war talk. I see an administration grooving on this 'crisis' seemingly just coming into their own now that we are bombing people's brains out, many thousands of innocent people whom we never hear about (foreign news reports are that about 4,000 innocent Afghans have been wiped out by our bombs). I am sickened by a country that used to be mine. I await its return.....
too bad w does not want gifts sent to him. I was going to send him a dictionary.
With that tool he could look up words he does not understand, like;
The list goes on and on.
Every freedom loving person, spread the word. Wear your BUZZFLASH t-shirts.
Thank you BUZZ for real news not (Giraldo style),
seems painfully apparent to me that the only reasonable and moderate Republicans
Where You Are
<< No more digging through your old email for that story about Bush's latest transgression -- if you got it from BuzzFlash, it can be found somewhere on or through the site. >>
****EXCELLENT!!! I do send a lot of articles found on your site, and when I reply to the occasional right-wing lugnut, I need to verify my facts. This will make things soooo much easier!!!
Thank you BuzzFlash!!!
Got your email about your new archive links. And just when I thought you couldn't get any better. Thanks for a fantastic site. Hope you can use my donation -- and thanks for the T-shirt. Keep buzzin'!
wanted to let you know that Ray
Taliaferro just talked about your web page. He talked about how he
goes to your web page for all your great links, and stories. He said he
wanted to thank you for the great links. He was talking about "What
is Bush covering Up..." in particular tonight. Ray is on KGO
810 in San Francisco, 1am- 5am, Mon-Fri. He came on at 1:08 and you
were his first topic. He loves your links and thinks you do a great
I'm so glad you posted the commentary about Ms. Janis Besler Heaphy, the publisher of the Sacramento Bee, who was heckled off the stage at Cal State University Sacramento's commencement just as she began to talk about civil liberties.
When I first saw this story on Sunday, I looked up Ms. Heaphy's email and sent her a supportive note. If any of your other readers want to email her, her email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I've made a personal to commitment to be more active in sending supportive notes to the more and more people that we see coming under siege and repression for simply trying to remind others we have a Bill of Rights in our Constitution. A fact that can never be re-affirmed enough.
This is a text-book case for the old adage: "Use it or lose it... " ...our First Amendment, that is...

who gets fired for expressing opinions not on the GOP/Bush PR talking

The case that deregulation was the dumbest idea ever proposed by conservatives continues to mount. Keep in mind the article below is from a trade group that is mildly in favor of dereg.
should be making this more of an issue. Unlike macro economic policy,
where cause and effect of public fiscal policy are latent and hard to
connect, here we have a specific cause and effect.
I just don't get it. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is on the Bush bandwagon when it comes to his leadership in handling the war. Democrats and Republicans praise him to the hilt and so many feel he should be Time Magazine's person of the year. Yes, they have managed to form a strong coalition -- after 9/11 would we expect less even though the Bush Administration had previously thumbed their noses at the rest of the World?
If my memory serves me correctly Osama Bin Laden was going to be smoked out of his hole. Bush has a thing about that -- the other day he mentioned how the governor of Louisiana hunts rabbits and smokes those little bunnies right out of their holes. The bravery of those gun-toting animal hunters is indeed impressive & so are Bush's way with words.
Osama has escaped and according to the New York Times, virtually the entire top leadership of the Taliban has survived the American bombings and eluded capture by the American-backed Afghan forces. Now, being a woman, I know little to nothing about war tactics but common sense would tell me when the bombing could not produce any further productivity, who did we send to get those evil doers out of the caves? The Afghans. We all know these guys switch sides all the time. How easy it would be for these afghans to be bought off or perhaps feel sympathy or stand in awe of OBL and his top men, thus allowing escape. It would be very risky for our guys to have done that job -- nevertheless to let OBL & his top guns get away is failure. Our reliance on the Afghans from the onset of this war was not too smart considering their history has been less than admirable.
When I garden and go after a weed, I fully understand if I do not get the entire root that weed will come back and flourish. OBL and his top leadership are the roots of the Al Queda organization. If they are not captured or proven dead, I would consider what has been accomplished to date far from successful.
On the home front, the anthrax terrorist -- no arrest. I agree wholeheartedly with BuzzFlash's analysis of this situation, so there's no need to say more. Now the assault on our civil liberties -- we all know the Bush Administration has been very successful in that area. Other areas?
Yes, I expect our President will be Time's person of the year because of his handling of this war. Isn't Time magazine part of a corporate conglomerate? I think the odds are very much in his favor.
Bush affidavit re the funeral home:
For Sen. Daschle and Sen. Harry Reid! If Limbaugh, O'Reilly, and other
rw Chickenhawk cowardly commentators complain, remind them that Daschle
received a cowardly Anthrax Letter from other RW terrorists... which Makes
Sen. Daschle a survivor of a terror attack. And While Bush, Cheney, Armey,
and DeLay all RAN FOR THE HILLS, Sen. Daschle vowed to Keep the US Senate
working for the American people in the days immediately after the terror
Last night I saw an interesting story on NBC News [BF Note: See two letters
above]. It seems a Florida funeral business is in hot water for doing
some pretty disgusting things with bodies. It has a history of misplacing
them and of digging them up and throwing them out to make room for others.
There appears to be a large investigation going on now. Interestingly,
the funeral company is non other than SCI, the same outfit which bought
its way out of being investigated in Texas and got the funeral commission
here effectively closed down by making hefty political contributions to
a Governor named "Bush." There is a governor by the same name
in Florida. I wonder if he can protect SCI the way his brother did. Or,
is it possible the media will wake up to what happened in Texas?
I am the webmaster of www.oreilly-sucks.com, I have wrote you guys before. BTW Thanks for putting my link up a while back, I got 4000 hits the first day and 3000 hits the 2nd day.
you guys might like to see this, www.townhall.com
has a web page listing 60
Here are a couple examples:
In the source code html of the above web pages it has this for the title of the page:
[title] TownHall.com: Conservative Columnists: Bill O'Reilly [/title]
I made a web page documenting it and did screen captures with paint shop pro of the web pages at townhall.com just in case they try to cover it up and change it to columnist instead of conservative columnist.
You can post it on BuzzFlash.com if you want to, here is the url, check it out:
How can he deny being a conservative when he is listed as a conservative columnist?
His name is 2 spots above Robert Novak on the list.
This morning I read the story you posted about the riots that have broken out in Argentina.
After reading the article, I immediately brought up the Google search engine: Bush & Argentina. I just knew that somehow the Bush Family Evil Empire was involved, even though their name is never mentioned in this article. Had to be. (Excerpt: "This is happening because of this savage economic model.") Here's what Google gave me:
I think it's funny (not really) that just about any tortured country's name you put into a search engine, add a '& Bush', you come up with yet another example of the Bush Family Evil Empire's sticky, nasty, dirty, puppet-controlling fingers stuck in something that reeks. Like Iran & Bush, Iraq & Bush, Somalia & Bush, Gorazzafoo, Ohio & Bush.....doesn't matter. Anywhere the economy is tanking, the people are getting screwed, the oil is flowing, and the fundamentalists all eventually look the same, you find the name of BUSH.
