Subj: And We're Okay With That?
...and we're ok with that? America is OK with that? Now that we know what went on during this time? Flying private jets to avoid terrorist attacks and he's chasing whores in New Orleans!
Jesus for the life of me; What planet am I on?
Your headline should read:
FBI Agent Holding Moussaoui Warned SECRET SERVICE Weeks Before 9/11!
This is HUGE!!!! The President's bodyguard was warned of a specific threat (i.e., hijacked airliner as a missile)
Bush should be impeached and put on trial in the Senate. (Cheney should be on trial for Halliburton deals with Sadam)
Subj: 1 + 1 used to be equal to 2
OK Moussaoui's in jail, suspected of plotting a MAJOR terrorist attack, FBI agents are warning Washington of an impending attack on the capital, that probably involves Moussaoui, and yet THEY CANNOT LOOK AT HIS COMPUTER!
But let the Police stop you and get a "wiff" of cannabis smoke, they'll have you in handcuffs, dogs will be called in, and they will discover a seed if that is all you have in the car. But a terrorist plot?
Something my fellow Americans does not add up here.
As Dr. Phil would say, I think we just got to the crux of the matter on Iraq and removing Saddam.
After all, everything our tantrum-throwing, little-tin-soldier-boy President does is about him, him, him, him, him.
Maybe a psychologist should look at this man before thousands of young Americans die in Iraq in a war that could be settled by other means.
A BuzzFlash Reader
Yesterday, flanked with a handful of Democratic Senators and Representatives who support his resolution for Iraq, Bush held a press conference that was purposely timed to draw attention and the press away from the Daschle-Gephardt press conference at the Capitol building. With Democrats close to his side, Bush stated that we would be "soon speaking in one voice."
Now this is the scariest prospect I have heard yet! Please find out if you had a Democratic Representative or Senator attending George's propaganda press conference and let them know your disgust!!

This is an email I sent to the author of the article from the Associated Press who wrote GORE ACCUSES BUSH OF ERODING FREEDOM. I decided to take the suggestion from one of your readers to hound the reporters who keep saying Bush won the 2000 election.
This poem is composed entirely of actual quotes from George W. Bush. The quotes have been arranged into verse by Washington Post writer Richard Thompson. Too good not to share, especially as it's National Poetry Month.
Subj: AP and Denver Post say 2000 Protesters, Reuters Says 500 Supporters
Somebody is spreading lies and my money is on Reuters....
* * *
About 500 chanting anti-war demonstrators marched through downtown Denver within earshot of the hotel where Bush was speaking. About the same number of supporters had already lined the streets near the hotel, some carrying photographs of Bush.

Protesters Greet Bush at Fund-Raiser
Protesters Turn Out to Greet President Bush at Denver Fund-raiser
D E N V E R, Sept. 27 - In a scene reminiscent of antiwar protests of the 1960s, at least 2,000 people gathered Friday outside a fund-raiser featuring President Bush to rally against a possible war in Iraq.
* * *
More than 2,000 protestors gathered in front of the City and County Building and marched down 16th Street to the Adam's Mark to protest a possible U.S. attack on Iraq.
When the group arrived at the Adam's Mark, they encountered a small group of Bush supporters. "We thought we were the majority, until this army showed up," said Bush supporter Kevin Keeling, 19, of Boulder, who studies political science at the University of Colorado.
I too had the unfortunate experience of owning a First USA credit card. I too paid my bill on time and suddenly began noticing late charges attached to my monthly statement. I'd call First USA and let them know I paid the bill 2 weeks early and their response was "I'm sorry, but your payment was posted after the due date."
Little did I know this was a scam until I started doing a little digging on the web. Apparently I'm not the only one they did this to. There's a class action suit filed by thousands of people who experienced the same thing. Apparently First USA cut back on employees and didn't have enough to post customer payments on time. Is that a crock or what??
Needless to say, I transferred my balance to another card and guess what? They tacked on a late payment for that! I absolutely refused to pay it and they continued sending me new monthly bills with additional penalties and late fees accruing each month. After a year of this nonsense, they turned me over to a collection agency who harassed me day in and day out. I stuck to my conviction to NOT pay these criminal thieves and I guess they eventually gave up.
Subj: It's a national disgrace
is okay to spend $200+ billion to attack Iraq, but Hamid Karzai has to
go begging with his cap out for a piddling $4.5 billion. Read the Sept
27 New York Times, Powell Urges Nations to Fulfill Afghan Pledges. Technically
it's our "allies" who owe the money but why are we stiffing
Afghanistan over it? Couldn't we just cough up the difference? It's a
national disgrace. On another note, it wasn't a bad day. But we mustn't
drop our guard. The elections are coming up, and the Bushocracy have a
lot riding on being able to destroy Iraq. We don't know what they'd do
if we got in the way of their blood and oil lust. Probably smash us with
their "Eager Mace" (the name of the war games they decided they
had to conduct on the border of Iraq while this delicate, painstaking
diplomacy is being carried out (by other nations. Heavens, I didn't mean
ours.) Last thing. The inspections WERE used for espionage. U.S. officials
copped to this in a New York Times article of a few years ago: January
8, 1999, entitled: "U.S. Used U.N. Team to Place Spy Device in Iraq,
Aides Say", by Tim Weiner. They'd "inspect" and then "bomb."
Their comment about this is that people "shouldn't be surprised"
that many of the same people and institutions they'd inspected would be
bombed the following day. Yeah, and we shouldn't be surprised, either,
that the Iraqis freaked out. You can read a free abstract of the article
BuzzFlash, you're a solace. I guess that's it for now. Peace, all.
Subj: Iraq Opposition Coverage Question
Is it just me or does every major news outlet/publication seem to give more space to the Administration's view than the opposing view that theoretically the story is covering?
I am trying to answer a lot of people who wrote in this one.
To all you people who heard the same thing I did this time, at least three times this week, Bush has used that sorry story about how evil Saddam is, "of course he's evil, he tried to kill my Dad!" So, we should all lose our loved ones, because his father went to war for oil and made Saddam mad and the man put out a contract on him... Hey man, its about oil!!!
And, if the government ever thinks that Buzz is too detrimental to them...then, we will all just have to take to the streets..and fight!!!
And, I agree totally with Randi on the draft thing...put the Media elite, the Bushes and the Cheneys and the Ashcrofts..in! Also, the Limbaughs, the O'Reillys, the Delays...Jeez, we could go on forever with the bunch that got out!
And, most of us have to realize that Rush and the Fox network could take anything and turn it into a lie, to benefit their side!!
As for the dozen or so Dems who are afraid of the backlash, at the polls, ask them how many of them ever lost someone they dearly loved in a senseless war, which Viet Nam was...we all know that now. ...Getting those seats in government is lot more important than killing dozens of Iraqis and our young! Of course, when it comes to this kind of coward, who really cares of what political bent they are!!!
How low can you go?????
Good one, Buzz..........Shirley, St.Louis
It took me a long time to see it , but the right wing is right! They say America has lost it's moral fiber, they're right! The thing is that they are looking the wrong way. They feel no shame in stealing an election. They feel no shame in telling lies about their enemies. They claim to follow Jesus at the same time they ignore the teachings of Jesus. They claim we are un-American when at the same time what they ignore is the Bill of Rights. This shows NO MORAL FIBER! We must hold up a mirror to these people!
Subj: Not Fooled in Tampa
Well now wait just a minute. Bush and the republicans keep saying over and over every time someone mentions the economy (BUSH'S FIRST PRIORITY IS PROTECTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!) So what? Bush can't walk and chew gum at the same time? Bush and Cheney have lots of time for vacations and fundraising, how about spending a little of that fund raising time on getting some domestic work done? :):):)
An open letter to Tom Daschle,
Good for you. Don't back down just because the Repug pitt bulls are frothing again. If Cheney comes out of hiding to bark and snarl at you, stand your ground. Good for you for telling Bush off. Of all the nerve - telling a wounded WWII veteran, Senator Inouye, Senator Kerry, Senator McCain, other veterans that they did not care about national security. Bush, Cheney, and Ashcroft were the ones who nicely avoided VietNam. Bush went into the Air National Guard, with Daddy's help, and was AWOL at that. Remember there is still a $3500 reward from veterans for anyone who can prove Bush showed up to duty, and nobody has come forth yet to my knowledge. How dare he accuse these veterans of not caring about national security.?!

At a Wednesday staged press conference photo-op Bush said: "Soon we will be speaking with one voice"! This sounds like a very scary prospect to me!! VOTE DEMOCRATIC! THE LIFE YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN!

"There will be a high level of suspicion focused on that prior association [with Sen. Gramm] if it looks like the SEC is being protective or is not asserting remedies against Wendy Gramm that it is asserting in other cases," he explains.
** Enron directors escaping discipline? **
Enron's outside directors will likely escape disciplinary action by the SEC despite two formal inquiries that have heaped blame on them for behavior that helped cause the company's collapse.

Thank you so much for writing about Congresswoman Patsy Mink. She was one of the brave fourteen people in congress who stood up and said no to Bush on January 6, 2001. She worked tirelessly through the night to try to get a Senator to stand with her to refuse to let Bush be elected. Not one senator joined the courageous fourteen representatives in the House to refuse to accept the illegal Florida electors. I wrote Patsy a thank you letter (I don't live in her state) and she wrote me back a wonderful letter. I don't know if everyone realizes what a warrior for democracy she is. I hope they will remember her with cards and flowers. Thank you, BuzzFlash, for telling us about her grave illness. I am praying for her and will send her a card and some flowers.

So Bush uses Air Force One to raise millions? It's time for a name change: Air Fundraiser One.
Subj: An Endless Battle for Position
Yes, I remember those dark days when the Democrats were afraid to express an opinion for fear of being labeled anti-Patriotic, while Mr. Bush's party sold pictures of him riding around on Air Force all day on September 11, 2001. It seems that no matter what the Republicans do, things don't become crass and political until the Democrats actually initiate a debate, the way they are supposed to do. You're right, we are rushing into a war with Iraq, but why? No one really knows and no one, including the Washington Post was asking the hard questions. It was Al Queda that attacks the US on 9/11, not Iraq. Now that a debate has finally begun, maybe the public can get some real answers, and who knows, maybe the Democrats spine will grow to the extent that they will not support a resolution to have this coward of a president (Oh, I forgot, the Washington Post doesn't know that Bush joined the Air Guard to avoid serving in Vietnam or that he was AWOL from there for a year) send brave young men and women into Iraq to kill women and children so that the Republicans can avoid discussing this pitiful economy and corporate scandal.
Oh, I almost forgot the most important reason for going to war with Iraq, Saddam tried to kill Mr. Bush's "daddy".
I say keep up the Political Battle Democrats, debate is what this country is about, otherwise, we would have a one-party system.

Subj: MUST SEE!!
Sorry about the loud subject line but please notice what appears to be the police dressed in yellow in this picture (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/2285861.stm). It appears to me they are actually ESCORTING the protesters through the streets to insure the public safety, NOT waiting with weapons to attack them or round them up as our police did in Portland, Stockton etc.
To me this is an amazing look at the illusion of American 'freedoms' versus the reality of the freedoms in Great Britain. It makes a mockery of our Constitution and the government that pretends to support it.
Don't know how to pass this tidbit on to your readers but thought it important enough for your attention.
Thanks so much again for your web site and keep up the good work.
Just wanted to let you and your readers know that today, Saturday, Sept. 28, I saw 200 Montana residents rally and march for peace in Missoula.
People of all ages and all walks of life spoke out and marched down Higgins St. to express opposition to US involvement in Colombia's civil war and the push to invade Iraq.
Carrying signs and chanting against another oil war, the peaceful demonstration grabbed the attention of shoppers at this morning's street market. Passers-by honked their horns in support.
In one of America's most conservative states, it was heartening to witness so many people come out and march for justice and peace.
I'll post a report, interviews, and photos to Seattle Indymedia within a couple days.
I think before Bush is allowed to send our children to their deaths he should come clean with why he was moved to the top of the list to get into the national guard and then where was he for those 18 missing months out of the guard!

Subj: A series of troubling quotes by GW Bush
Here is a list of troubling quotes by GW Bush that I have been accumulating in my mind for the past year. When the dots are connected and the quotes put into context they are enough to scare the willies out you! Couple these quotes with the fact that Bush sat at Booker Elementary school while 3000 innocent people died, and his lying statements to the press since about what he KNEW and when he KNEW it! And then combine them with stolen elections, its enough to send your heart to your knees!
These quotes have been haunting me night and day. I don't have links to the press sources for these quotes, but I have either read the articles that contained them or have seen him make the statements on television before they were censored or scrubbed! I never forgot them!
Not long after terrorist attack on 9-11-01, Bush told a group of his Christian Right supporters: "God has called upon me to save the world from terrorism"!
Later this was changed and I heard him say: "History has called upon me to save the world from terrorism"!
Then changed again, Bush recently said: "History has called upon us to save the world from terrorism"!
In his speech at the Pentagon with Rummy by his side, on 9-11-02 Bush said: "We must fight to protect the innocent and to keep the lawless and merciless from inheriting the earth"!
In Nashville on September 17, 2002, Bush said in a fundraising speech for Lamar Alexander: "This is the war to determine civilization"!
Now at the White House propaganda press conference on September 26, 2002 (after Al Gore's speech, and Tom Daschle's scathing rebuke) Bush said: "Soon we will be speaking with one voice"!

Though I agree with this writer, what he's not thinking about is how the repugs turn a disaster into a win. What happened in Florida during the presidential election happened again during the primary, in Florida, also. What happened in Florida during the election and primary, also happened in Bexar County (San Antonio) and it happened because of someone within our Democratic party. We can work like hell and get the Dems to get out the vote but if they are not given good instructions, the same thing will happen. Bexar County is also going with a new system. I served as a poll judge and you can't believe how many people didn't realize that if you accidentally vote using a repug ballot, you can have it declared invalid and get the correct ballot. People need to be informed as to their voting rights. THAT'S the biggest problem for the Democrats. And the repugs are all for keeping voters ignorant about their rights. Just my opinion.
Re: With a Little Spine, the Democrats Can Turn Back the Bush Barbarians at the Gate
Hallelujah! As a responsible American citizen, I am TIRED of Democrats ceding the moral high-ground to Repubs....
with special Kudos to Mr. Bill McBride, who yesterday in the televised debate with "Jeb" took it to the governor from the starting bell to the last moment....
Subj: DC Protests
My cousin was in DC today for the protests against Dubya's dictatorial rush to war with Iraq. He says that so far not one TV station has even reported the protests. My cousin claims there were at least ten thousand people there. And this isn't news? All the best.....
Insanity of America's right-wing lunatic "Morality":
Billions and billions for bombs and wars, tax cuts for billionaires, while slashing funding for family planning and ignoring poverty, hunger, and misery that breed despair, crime... and, yes, "terror".
Regarding the protests in Denver, it is just a shame that the loudmouthed Repugs have to get bullhorns and scream for their Bush over the protests. We need to get smart and get louder bullhorns and drums when we protest. I am thinking of playing the song "War" by the Temptations, all at the same time on several handheld huge blasters. It gets the point across more than chants even.
Subj: What kind of monsters support Bush
Many Bush supporters claim to be wonderful, caring Christians. I have proof that most of them are far from it. Denise Spencer was protesting Bush in Denver. A Bush supporter said the most un-Christian like thing I have ever heard to her. They threatened to call child services and take her baby away. This is the type of intimidation and bearing of false witness that many Bush supporters perpetrate against their fellow human beings. Does that tell you that Bush is a man of God if he attracts supporters like that? It is important to notice how vile his supporters are.
I remember how excited I was when "Deep Throat" on Capitol Hill was sending you anonymous postings about what was going on up there....It was much too short lived. It sure would be interesting to get a perspective on what's really happening right now, especially within each party's divisions over the Iraq "resolution."
Any chance, Deep Throat, that you are still reading BuzzFlash's Mailbag? How 'bout doing your patriotic duty towards PEACE NOT WAR and letting us in on who's saying what? We need to know...we have the lives of thousands of innocents at stake here.
We need to know who will be voting their conscience, so we can support them.
elaine in Petaluma
Aloha from your friends in Hawaii,
I was watching the Capital Gang on CNN. An argument about about the future debate in congress on Iraq was happening with Shelby- R (Senate Intelligence Committee). One reporter stated he hoped the congress took the debate seriously since "only one member of congress has a child in the military." The name of the congressperson was given, but I missed it. If this is true, the debate now SHOULD BE that congress is more than willing to send 18, 19, and 20-year-olds to war as long as they aren't THEIR kids. This battle cry was heard in the 60's and many of us remember it well. It can be proved, in this war talk, the politicians and chickenhawks could be silenced. Enough said!
The Uniter-not-a-divider dismissed Al Gore as irrelevant.
Brit Hume stated with a straight face that Ted Kennedy "attacked" George W. Bush. I listened to the speech. I read it. Brit Hume, you're the very thing you claim to detest, a liar.
Frank Luntz, the pollster who repeatedly told viewers that Al Gore doesn't know who he is - because he changed his clothes and grew a beard - has grown a beard.
The democrats have reportedly given Bush NINETY PERCENT of what he wants in the Homeland Security bill. So why aren't the democrats repeating at every bend and turn that IT'S THE UNITER'S TURN TO COMPROMISE? When will they blow the cover off this phony?
Oh, and since the passage of the bill rests on whether Bush will have the ability to hire and fire, why aren't the democrats asking the obvious: Would you trust your job in Bush's hands?
Bush the lunatic finally let the cat (partially) out of the bag the other day when he stated at a fundraiser "... he (Hussein) tried to kill my dad."
So this is it, eh? A war of vengeance?
This is not what civilized nations do, it's what street punks do. It's a drive by shooting on a massive scale, with tens of thousands (possibly millions) of innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire.
This is EXACTLY the type of adventurism by the executive branch that Article 1, sec. 8, paragraph 11 was intended to prevent.
Keep up the good work, and thank you. America thanks you, and the rest of the planet thanks you.
I saw an ad on PBS tonight for Frontline Oct.3. Thought you and your readers might want to know.
Home-pages of the House of Representatives that have online polls, most regarding Iraq and homeland defense (my eyes are killing me):
BuzzFlash - check this sh!t out.
this particular article blew my mind.
here's the most important point:
While the rest of the dissent about the upcoming October television campaign spectacle/war on Iraq is going on, little things like this cropping up need to be kept in the limelight as well, lest we lose our focus as a party.
A BuzzFlash Reader
I can't believe that I am writing these words. But I just witnessed the "MOST" amazing McLaughlin Group program!!
John McLaughlin "just trashed, sliced, diced, and completely pooh poohed" Bush's Lunatic War Ideology strategy!!
He completely "silenced" John (moron) Barone and gave complete and unfettered deference to Eleanor Clift!!
You have to "see" this show and "see" if I have it right???? It came on here in Princeton, New Jersey at 5:30AM due to NBC's coverage of the Ryder Cup golf classic.
Are [we] witnessing an epiphany here????
What happened to the First Amendment Zones in this weekends protest in Arizona and Denver? No Mention of them in any of the articles on protesting in those Dictator Bush states. The Anti war protesters seemed to be able to get close to the sites where the Dictator was fund raising. Has Justice dept. changed the rules for those states or is it just because it is so close to elections? Either a change in the law has occurred without announcement or it is selective enforcement based on political motives.
John Ferrero in Seattle
Have you ever noticed that the SF Gate is one of the few newspapers that doesn't kiss up to Bush. All the other papers have downplayed the anti-war protests, and when using pictures, they are always careful to focus on the loudmouthed Bush supporting person in the middle of a crowd of anti-Bush protesters. The photographic focus is always on the bigmouth Bushie. Moreover, they always mention that there were Bush supporters there, as if to try to brainwash people into thinking there is widespread support for our rogue president. Thanks, San Francisco Gate, for reporting it like it REALLY is! I was disgusted that the Houston Chronicle wouldn't even cover the protests there. Yahoo had to come take pictures. What a sorry excuse of a paper you are, HC.

Quote of the Day
Just a note, on 9/11 we were watching CNN and they showed some footage of Palestinian Muslims celebrating at the news of the terrorist strike against the USA. Did you know that the footage they showed was a few years old. One of our CBC staffers remembered it and dug it up in the library, it was actually pictures of Palestinians celebrating Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. I just thought that it looked like they were trying to 'create the news in their own image' (I know what the world is like, don't confuse me with the facts so to speak).
Thanks for the service guys, when I can afford it I will donate (paul begala's books sound good)
There is a documentary about the aftermath of the Gulf War by Werner Herzog, "Lessons in Darkness." You might want to review it and pass it on to your readers.
Last month I attended an Antiwar Rally in Philadelphia outside Senator Specter's office organized by MoveOn.org. I asked one of the organizers if he had ever heard of BuzzFlash.com and he said he had not. He asked to tell the fellow demonstrators about your site so he gave me the bullhorn and I told them about it and even spelled it out. Hope you got some more new visitors to your site. Would love to see of a representative of BuzzFlash on C-Span's Washington Journal sometime.
I usually don't send out photos, but this one was too funny. It was sent to me by a fan in Arkansas. Enjoy!
The Angry Liberal
It's only a daydream, but I do have a proposal that should interest the United Nations. I doubt that it would pass muster in the United States, but it should present an interesting debate. The United States and anyone who wishes to join in should be given full authority to wage war against Iraq. They will have full authority to blow up anything they want. After Saddam Hussein has been overthrown, the oil reserves of Iraq should be placed in a trust administered by the United Nations and any revenue generated from the trusteeship should be dedicated to relieving the poverty in the third world. Control of the trust would be vested in the General Assembly rather than the Security Council. If we still have to have a war, it will be very educational to see who opposes the proposal and what reasons they give for their opposition.
Hey Don, I guess it takes one to know one, huh? By the way, watch the oil on the doormat.
From Saturday's letters to the Editor in the NY Times
And who's going to stop him? The Democrats? What a joke.
the average American will thank Al gore for being the first to voice his anger against Bush's atrocious foreign policy. But I will tell my children that it was this website, and not Gore, who started it all. Keep it up. I would donate money to you guys if I wasn't broke as I am right now.

Subj: Please help me stop a pandemic
Letter to the Editor
Americans should discuss the possible risks we face invading Iraq, no matter how unpleasant. The CIA says we should assume that Saddam would use biological weapons if the survival of his regime were at stake.
Dark Winter was an actual simulation of a biological attack on the US. In the Dark Winter scenario, the biological agent was smallpox (Iraq was the last country in the world to have an outbreak of smallpox). Causing a smallpox pandemic would be as easy as infecting several individuals and have them travel by plane and hang around the airport while contagious. I've coined the word "bhoosh" to describe the wildfire spread of a bio-weapon through the population. In Dark Winter-bhoosh, the hospitals were filled. Bhoosh, everyone stayed at home ruining the economy. Bhoosh, the government was overwhelmed with a vaccination program. If Iraq had nuclear weapons, we would be more cautious invading. Nuclear blindness is the mistaken belief that the bigger the bang, the more dangerous the weapon. Clinton said that fear of a biological attack kept him awake at night. In the Gulf War, we threatened Saddam with annihilation if he used any weapons of mass destruction. Bhoosh would be Saddam's revenge from the grave. Ironically, we could inadvertently bring about what we are invading to prevent. CIA analysts have reported that Saddam wants WMD for prestige and security, not for an attack on US interests that would almost certainly bring a devastating US response.
Mr. President, please order an Intelligence Assessment on Iraq. In my opinion, Iraq has the military capability to cause a pandemic. We should debate the wisdom of going to war with Iraq with our eyes wide open.
Hey! you missed the best part! I read your link:
then followed a link from that page to:
"Your Feedback on Democrat Scare Tactics From Around the Country"
All the "attacks" are completely valid and they're crying their eyes out about them. What a hoot! Please put the page up and give BuzzFlash readers a good laugh!
eg: "Senator Johnson in a statement over the radio this last week accused the Republicans of Enroning Social Security through partial privatization. In other words if Social Security is privatized the results will be the same as in the Enron scandal."
-- Paul of Baltic, South Dakota
I went to the Republican feedback page (http://www.rnc.org/Attacks/GetInvolved.asp) and sent them this:
"People are saying the Republicans are close-minded, hypocritical, and greedy and that the policies of their party and their leadership are ruining this country. They're right."
Your reference reads "The Senate Should Reject Michael McConnell for a Position on the Federal Bench 9/30."
There is no mandate for Mr. Bush's fanatical views. Anyone who can count can verify for themselves that he was not elected to his office, either through popular vote or through the electoral college. He was installed by a corrupt Supreme Court, in a blatant political ruling so obviously legally incompetent and unsupportable that it removes itself from setting a precedent as a part of the ruling.
The Senate should summarily reject ALL Bush nominations through January 20th, 2005. They should reject all recess appointments, if any, immediately upon reconvening after such appointments.
This is not a T-ball game. We're in the majors, folks, all of us.
