Subj: Bush - High Risk
We were talking over the weekend about drug testing. We drug test our dog catchers, but the people who literally hold our lives in their hands do not have to take drug test, such as George Bush, who is in a high risk category due to his past, congress and the senate. Why is that?
Ps. If Noelle Bush had been a poor black or hispanic......her behind would be in prison right now.
Subj: Yahoo! News - Terror Charges Filed in Virginia in Sniper Case
Here we see the KEY to this whole sniper thing!
"Terror" charges are to be filed against the sniper.
Isn't it interesting that the sniper and Timothy McVeigh were both Gulf War Veterans?
A BuzzFlash Reader
I would like to thank you for your clear and unbiased presentation of the Bush administration's policies and its despotic conduct both abroad and at home. President Bush has used the tragedy of 9/11 to undermine our civil liberties, to further his blatant desire to award his wealthy corporate allies, in addition to manipulating the media into presenting him as some sort of hero. I think a quick glance at the actions of the president and vice-president (if we should go so far as to use such legitimizing terminology for criminals) on 9/11 we will see that these men have associated themselves with heroes although their actions on that fateful day undermine any sort of heroic conduct on their part. While men and women were rushing into the world trade center to rescue the victims of that horrible attack, George Bush the second was being flown to rural Kansas, far away from where he should have been. Dick Cheney, that lecherous corporate puppet, was taken to a secret underground bunker instead of being taken directly to the pentagon to aid those in need. When we look at the actions of these two individuals, who are supposed to represent the bravery and courage of ordinary Americans, we see the true nature of these men: they ran and hid instead of facing the danger, they set themselves above and apart from the ordinary citizen, they then had the audacity to connect themselves to the true heroes of 9/11 when their actions present them as cowards. A true commander and chief should have flown directly to New York and Washington and helped drag the bodies from ground Zero, he should have shown that even the president of the united states will face terror eye to eye. Instead, he and his vice president hid, yet the media does not make this point known. Bush and Cheney are cowards, and we should never forget their actions on that day when hundreds of men and women died rescuing victims, they died as Americans, whereas Bush and Cheney live as aristocrats and oligarchs.
I am deeply saddened by the tragic death of Senator Wellstone, his wife and daughter as well as his campaign aides and the pilots. The respect I had for Senator Wellstone is beyond words. His adherence to his principles, no matter what, was and will continue to be a beacon to me on what to look for in a representative. I can only hope that his pride in being a Liberal with a capital L will allow others to now stand up and say to all republicans "Hell, yes, I am a Liberal, and very proud to claim that title, as Paul Wellstone did!"
I am Canadian, yet many of us here knew of Paul Wellstone, what he stood for, and cheered his no vote on the Iraq resolution.
Subj: Jeb is CSS ...............He's desperate.
After reading the following comment from Associated Press, I realized that I had heard the name CSS prior to seeing it in the AP story.
"Poe said he asked the caller the name of his company, and the man replied "'California' and then something I couldn't understand."
When POE asked again, the caller said he was calling from "CSS." " (Quote from AP)
Around September 15th I had sent, by email, an article (about Jeb Bush) from www.DemocraticUnderground.com to Jeb Bush. The next day I received an email from Jeb referring to me as a "maggot kat". I responded to this email telling Jeb that my name was Magginkat, that maggots were something that swarmed around the Bushes.
Jeb replied that I was sick and unworthy of any more of his time!
Likewise I thought......No big deal.
However upon reading the AP story above the words CSS jumped out at me. I knew it sounded familiar for some reason.
This morning I discovered why. I was reading notes scribbled on index cards that I keep around my computer, and ran across the most interesting one....
On or about Sept. 19th, I received a call from a guy who asked if I would participate in a poll regarding Florida's election.
The first half dozen or so questions were ordinary enough but after that came a series of the most biased questions that I have ever heard. The poll was nothing but a Jeb Bush propaganda poll.
I asked the young man conducting the interview for the poll who he was and where the sam hill he came up with such a poll. He did admit that he had never seen a poll as biased as this one.
He would not give me his name but he did say he was with CSS in CA and that he was a political science major doing this to earn money for college.
I called Democratic Hdqtrs in Tallahassee this morning and left this info for Bob POE
Jeb bu$h is CSS and he is getting desperate.......
Subj: Bush Being AWOL
In response to the letter written by the reader to wrote this letter:
"I was informed that because of the nature of the crimes; deserting one's country during a time of war, that there is NO statute of limitations, and these crimes, if proven, can still be prosecuted today."
Actually, this part of the letter isn't true.
First and foremost, Bush could not be charged with the crime of Desertion (under Article 85 of the UCMJ). For the crime of Desertion, the government must prove that the individual left military control, with the intent to remain away permanently. If a person returns to military control voluntarily, they cannot be charged under Article 85, as they obviously did not intend to remain away.
Second, court-martial jurisdiction ends once a member is discharged. Once discharged, the military cannot recall the person to stand court-martial (with the exception if the member is still in the inactive reserves or retired). Because desertion and AWOL are military (not civilian) crimes, even if Bush was guilty of AWOL (under Article 86), he could not be prosecuted by court-martial today. There is no longer any jurisdiction.
It is true that there is no statute of limitations for Desertion, but that assumes the individual deserts and is captured later. Such individuals are still in the military, as individuals in an AWOL/Desertion status are not discharged. Once discharged (as Bush was), the military has no legal authority.
Subj: Republicans silencing Native American Voices in New Mexico
As a regular visitor to your site, I thought you might be interested in a recent controversy in the race for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District. The incumbent, Heather Wilson (R) is running against Richard Romero.
In 2000, Wilson sponsored an amendment, which subsequently passed, to H.R. 4, the House Energy Bill, that could hand out millions of taxpayer dollars to uranium mining companies for groundwater clean-up projects. One of the companies eligible for this taxpayer giveaway is Uranium Resources, Inc. (URI), a Texas uranium mining company, that has an appalling environmental record in Texas. URI owns a company called Hydro Resources, Inc. (HRI) that plans to mine uranium in the villages of Crownpoint and Churchrock, located on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. The people of Crownpoint and Churchrock overwhelmingly oppose the proposed mines - not only because of the deadly legacy of uranium mining on Navajos, but also because the type of mining to be done, in situ leach (ISL) mining, will probably contaminate the sole drinking water source for 15,000 Navajos. If URI is the beneficiary of Wilson's largesse, HRI will certainly benefit.
On October 23, 2002, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released an issue ad taking Heather Wilson to task on her environmental record, specifically her proposed giveaways to the uranium mining industry. This ad featured several members of the Crownpoint community stating that Wilson has received tens of thousands of dollars from mining interests and now seeks to give a little back with the uranium subsidies that will likely destroy large portions of a pristine aquifer on the Navajo Nation. Every assertion in the ad was factually accurate and verifiable.
On October 24, 2002, the Albuquerque Journal, on page D3, reported that the local ABC affiliate, KOAT (www.thenewmexicochannel.com), had pulled the LCV ad because it had received a letter from Wilson (there are conflicting reports about whether the letter was from Wilson or from the RNC on behalf of Wilson) complaining that the ad was misleading. Later that day, all the local stations had pulled the ad. That evening, the local CBS affiliate, KRQE (www.krqe.com) aired a story about the controversy and its programming director admitted that all the assertions contained in the LCV ad were accurate. None of the Navajo community members who would be affected by Wilson's amendment were interviewed.
KRQE subsequently aired interviews with some community members, but the piece aired on Saturday night. None of the other local TV stations ran any pieces about the censorship.
The race for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District has been contentious and promises to be close. If Wilson's real environmental record were made public, she would certainly suffer politically. This is just another example of how the Republicans have gone to great lengths and have outright lied to gain political advantage. This time, however, the consequences could be devastating to hundreds of Navajo families.
Subj: "Mondale condemns Social Security privatization"
FOR THE RECORD.
I have heard some right-wingers stating that Walter Mondale favors privatization of Social Security. That is a LIE. Here is the headline and link to prove they are LYING.
I have also noted that some pundits and talk-show hosts do NOT correct Republicans and right-wingers who make that outrageous claim. I hope all BuzzFlashers will make mental note of this headline and follow this link to read the article.
And PLEASE write letters, or make phone calls, to correct any LIE or MISSTATEMENT Republicans or right-wingers make on this issue.
Right-wingers LIE for sport; we tell the truth to hold onto our democracy.

Subj: Sixty Minutes--Ashcroft shutdown of FBI investigation
Did you see "Sixty Minutes" last night? A translator was fired from the FBI for doing her job too well. She was told to slow down, stall and not do her job well. Her work was erased, because her supervisor wanted more money for more translators and that could only happen if work piled up. When she went above the supervisors head--after all this was after 911-- she was eventually fired and her incompetent supervisor promoted.
She filed a "whistleblower" suit and Ashcroft is working on shutting it down. An internal affairs man for the FBI says this kind of incompetence happens all the time and the incompetents are always promoted while the lower level people are usually fired for whistle blowing.
Definitely a piece for BuzzFlash and the mess our FBI is in.

Subj: I JUST HEARD A WHOPPER ON CNBC
I was listening to Power Lunch on CNBC out my left ear while copying the mail here, and I heard a discussion regarding whether or not Americans blame Bush for the state of the economy.
They stated that "never before have Americans been so "middle of the road", in the center, and not concerned about who occupies the white house (my interpretation).
They said that people evenly blame Clinton, Congress, and Bush (without naming bush....they call him the "present administration).
I feel like I am loosing my marbles here. That's what they want me to feel. But it is actually ANGER.
Let's get out the word: AMERICANS DO BLAME BUSH AND WE DO CARE AND WE ARE CERTAINLY NOT CENTER OF THE ROAD ON THE ISSUES!!!!!!!
I e mailed cnbc TV power lunch and told them how WRONG they are and reminded them that they LIE because they are BOUGHT WHORES, OWNED BY THE CONSERVATIVES.
Subj: Bush family bad genes
I agree with the BuzzFlash contributor who surmised that the Bush family has bad genes. I totally agree. My father, who was incidentally a moderate Republican and voted for people from both the Democratic and Republican party, always raised us to never call anyone names. I never in my life recall my dad calling anyone names or putting labels on anyone. The disgusting Bush family, however, spawns namecallers. Bush senior called then Vice President Gore Ozone Man (wish we had a little ozone) and called a reporter an idiot because he asked a fifth grade geography question of Junior which Junior couldn't answer. So Poppy got all angry and called the reporter an idiot. I think when Barbara Bush called Ferarro a bitch, she must have realized that it takes one to know one. Even my Republican mother says she thinks Barbara Bush is a vicious woman. What is with the Bush brand of Republicans? I was raised by Republicans who were moderate. They accepted and encouraged me to be a Democrat because they knew that is what I wanted. All they wanted me to do is vote, regardless of which party affiliation I chose. My Republican Dad drove me down to the Democratic headquarters to do my first campaigning. This breed of Bushes is against everything my Christian parents raised me to do. They did not believe in namecalling and that is a down side, which is one of a million, that the Bushes have. Read my lips. "No new Bushes." Get them out of all offices everywhere. They are a lowlife bunch of crumbs.
Subj: As the 'Big Dog" comes to help, Hawaii Democrats tie up governor's race!
I am pleased to be the bearer of good news from the mid-Pacific. Trailing in the polls by double digits (43%-31%) only six weeks ago, Hawaii Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mazie Hirono has caught up with GOP front-runner Linda Lingle with but one week to go -- it's all tied up at 40%-40%:
To give you and BuzzFlash readers a clearer picture of how this race is currently trending, almost 4 in 5 "undecideds" are AJAs (Americans of Japanese Ancestry) and Filipino-Americans, who are often notorious in their aversion to polls, but who have historically voted for Democratic governors in a big way. On the GOP side, Ms. Lingle's support comes primarily from the "haole" (Hawaiian work for white people, literally translated in English as "without breath" -- no kidding!), who make up approximately 33% of the islands' population, and that support has pretty much maxed out. Despite having raised over $6 million and outspending Ms. Hirono almost 5-to-1, Ms. Lingle has simply been unable to close the deal with most Hawaii voters. Although anything can happen in the final week, this is without a doubt a very ominous trend for the GOP.
And finally, the "Big Dog" himself -- Bill Clinton, our last lawfully elected President -- will be arriving in the islands on Wednesday, October 30, to accompany Ms. Hirono on a barnstorm tour of the entire state!
Meanwhile, the White House and GOP sent out Bush apologist Karen Hughes to shill for Ms. Lingle today at a $500 per head fundraiser this morning at the posh (of course!) Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki.
A mismatch if there ever was one ... Hawaii loves the "Big Dog", but thus far most people have reacted to Hughes with a collective "Who dat?", which is a local pidgin English expression for politely expressing the question, "Who the hell is he/she?"
I'll keep you and BuzzFlash readers posted.
P.S.: This morning, the Honolulu Advertiser's lead editorial endorses the late Congresswoman Patsy Mink over her right-wingnut yahoo opponent, GOP State Rep. Bob McDermott: "For the public's sake, vote Mink on Nov. 5." I'll forward the link.
Subj: Belinda Berner's threat to cancel the Sun-Sentinel
When I read Belinda Berner's letter suggesting that she "might" cancel her subscription to the Sun-Sentinel for endorsing Jeb Bush although the paper is published in the heart of the democratic stronghold in Florida, it struck me that she ought to do it immediately.
The far-right leaning media is THE PROBLEM as we have seen once again by their failure to report accurately on the recent protests against the Bush rush to war to divert attention from his countless failures. That is why I love BUZZFLASH; it offers an alternative.
I refuse to subscribe to my own local paper the LA Times because of its consistent far right-wing slant and failure to report almost anything negative about this corrupt administration. Sending money in the form or subscriptions to these papers is like feeding a cancer. However much one might like the other local news that comes with these rags it is long past time to cancel your subscription Belinda and choke off their revenue. Should the Sun-Sentinel or the LA Times decide to start publishing the unbiased truth, you will see their articles appearing more and more on BuzzFlash.
I sent some pretty big checks to a few progress Congressional candidates, but I plan to send another big check soon to BuzzFlash--far better than sending my dollars to the LA Times.

It is appalling that the Boy King would display his boredom and arrogance in front of world leaders this way. Why is he getting paid $400,000 a year plus all of the perks, if he can't even fake being reasonably involved and interested? He is such an embarrassment to all of us when he is on the world stage. It's bad enough that we have to bear his goofiness here in the U.S., but to see how inept and unfit for the Presidency he is when among world leaders is truly depressing.
Subject: Anti-war march in San Francisco
I am disappointed again at the sorry coverage of the important worldwide anti-war marches. When I went to the BuzzFlash site and to others I expected dozens of links to newspaper articles reporting the anti war demonstrations and yet there was such minimal and lackluster reporting by the media on these events.
Well, I was at the San Francisco march and it was anything but small or lackluster. It was big and it was loud and it was packed! Bart (the Bay Area Rapid Transit) which covers hundreds of miles around the Bay Area was using the same number of trains they do on weekdays (a train every 15 to 20 minutes) and by the time the trains arrived at the Embarcadero exit there was standing room only, which happens only during rush hour on a normal day.
People swarmed out of the underground station like a constant river for hours. The sight that greeted the people pouring out of the subway station was awe inspiring. What everyone saw was wall to wall people with their banners and their signs and their giant puppets as far as the eye could see, even for those who were lucky enough to climb onto a high place. Drums were beating and musicians were playing and people were dancing in the street.
I saw groups I've never connected to peace marches. Groups like a contingent of men and women in doctor's coats with a sign claiming they were "BAY AREA PHYSICIANS FOR PEACE". "GRANDMOTHERS AGAINST WAR" were truly a bunch of little old ladies, some with canes and wheelchairs, and one young man dressed impeccably in a West Point uniform carried a sign saying "WEST POINT GRADUATE AGAINST WAR". I saw a very brave young man holding a sign that said "REPUBLICAN AGAINST WAR". And I saw hundreds of cameras and camcorders, so if some of you have pictures send them to BuzzFlash!
There was an estimate of 80,000 people there and I believe that estimate is an an accurate one. I made my way to the front of the demonstrators and stood on the sidewalk to watch the marchers go by. They started at the foot of Market Street and walked the 12 dozen blocks to the Civic Center. Market Street is very wide. It has 4 traffic lanes and two trolley car tracks, which makes it as wide as some freeways.
From where I watched I couldn't see the other side of the street because there were so many people. And it took TWO HOURS for all the marchers to walk past me. TWO HOURS! Imagine how many people walked past me in that time. My feet and legs were aching from standing in one spot for so long.
The park and the streets in the Civic Center were overflowing and the whole place felt like a carnival where food venders had set up their tents, and Latin Americans pushed their ice cream carts through the crowds. There was a large group of people holding a silent vigil and sitting in a circle with signs inviting others to join them.
But along the entrance to one of the Federal Buildings as well as at the front of another building with a sign identifying it as "Corporate Headquarters" there were police standing in riot gear. Only this time the fences were fencing them in to guard the buildings. They were probably the most photographed people there. At the government building about 40 or 50 of them stood at the ready, shoulder to shoulder holding their weapons and staring grim faced from behind their full face visors. They refused to answer questions or talk to anyone. It was a sight that brought a sober moment to many faces. Some people laughed, but I could see that most were imagining what could happen if things got out of hand. San Francisco has a history of violence demonstrations and many of us remember how it was during the Vietnam war riots.
All of us, the 80,000 in San Francisco, the 200,000 in DC, the thousands in other American cities, and the hundreds of thousands in other countries in the world joined on October 26, 2002 for these anti-war demonstrations so we won't repeat Vietnam ever again if we are able to have any say in our future. And I know that there are millions who couldn't make it but who wanted to go to one of these demonstrations. I'm proud to think that I represented many who wanted to be there.
Subj: Jeb Bush is a smirking liar
I can tell you why Jeb Bush ordered that those calls be made, telling people to turn in their absentee ballots late. He can't stand to have the votes sent in on time. He knows he will lose. It is impossible for Jeb or anyone else in his genetically warped family to do anything without some sort of deception in it.
I just returned from the San Francisco protest against the Iraq War. (Pictures: 1 2 3 4 5) I flew down from Seattle to meet up with friends who drove up from Los Angeles. We saw contingencies from as far away as Colorado and points east. We started at the Embarcadero around 11 A.M. and it was already jam packed. When the march finally began, we could not see the front or the back of the line. We chanted, sang and talked with others from all over the country. About 2/3 of the way down Market Street we stopped for a bathroom, refreshment break. As we stood alongside the street marchers just kept coming. I was holding a sign which read "Seattle says NO WAR", and a blowup of my Honorable discharge from the United States Navy. Every few minutes I'd hear a cheer and a "Yea, Seattle". Many veterans came over to shake my hand. One gave me a pin with "Veterans for Peace, Abolish War" on it. The crowd represented a huge cross-section of Americans. Every race, color, creed and point of view were represented. THIS WAS TRULY WHAT AMERICA LOOKS LIKE! When we resumed marching, nearly a half hour later the crowd was still passing by and we could not see the end of the line. We estimated there had to be close to 100,000 people at the peak of the event. We could not. at first, get into civic center at all, because we were backed up onto Market Street! Young at heart, but not young in body, we decided to stop and rest in our car, which we had parked about a block or two from the center. We watched as thousands of people started to head out. Many had evidently made the march and then decided not to stay for speeches. They had made their statement. A half hour or so later, we made our way into civic center. There were still a good 50,000 people there. It wasn't until about an hour later that we finally saw a channel 7 news copter fly over. We walked around and took pictures and talked to veterans, seniors, and anyone who wanted to talk... which was just about everybody. We even talked with the police who surrounded thew governement buildings. Got to protect those buildings, you know! No thought to the fact that they are supposed to be owned by us!
We were exhausted. We headed home and turned on the news. They were still talking about the D.C. sniper, Winona Ryder, and various other extremely important issues of the day such as the traffic accident in the east bay! In San Francisco, KRON T.V. spent ten minutes on their "top story", the Giants/Angels baseball game! They showed exactly sixty seconds of the protest, then returned to another five minutes of Giants coverage! CNN virtually ignored all of the protests.... showing one close-up of Jesse Jackson and a few protestors in Washington. No danger of letting the American people know how many protestors were there, and no pictures of the protests in other countries. We were disgusted and immediately I called CNN. Of course, on a Saturday, I got some flunky who hardly knew what I was talking about. The voice of the American people does not seem to count to them. Do we all have to become "snipers" in order to make the news? What kind of sickness is this?
So, I have a suggestion. How about we organize a "March on the Media". Let's surround CNN headquarters and all of our local T.V. stations. If they won't come to us, lets bring it home to them! Let's let the media know that this is a "government of the people" and that they cannot black us out. This is not the TASS news agency. They have an obligation to serve the people of this nation... or get their licenses pulled. I might also suggest that we all start a petition to CNN, Fox, MSNBC, etc. demanding that they cover the voice of the American people. If anyone has ideas, feel free to Email me.
Thanks for allowing me to be sick to my stomach again! I couldn't help it, I just had to subject myself to the horror of listening to "Let the eagle soar"! Just had to do it! It was just as bad and hilarious this time as the first...I have a better computer this time, so the sound was clearer (you notice I said clearer, not better)!
Folks, I am from Missouri, we have always had this nitwit around who has this little bitty brain, who Mr. Bush appointed to a job, just like he does all the House Impeachment Managers who lose their elections. Just think how many have. McConnell, Rogan, Bryant (I think) and my favoite Bob Barr is about to, I think! There are more, but Old George will find a place for them! Ashcroft was a dimwit governor..and he is now a dimwit Atty. General.
Someone help me remember all the impeachment managers who have lost their jobs since the impeachment....not counting Lauch Faircloth...the Manager of all Managers!
I have lost count, and you know, it hasn't been that long...so, I am thinking that there were people out there voting who never forgot that incident!! I sure never will! Had Clinton done anything at all that Bush has, he would have been impeached for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th. and 5th. time, etc.!
Thank you for letting me rant! Sometimes, it feels good..and You are so very good for letting us do that!
We do love you, Buzz!

Subj: Tribute to Paul Wellstone
FOR THE PEOPLE
leaders wouldn't lead
the wisdom of a Franklin,
heroic as Washington,
like our greatest heroes,
putting his future last
put right high above might
Copyright ©2002 by Natasha Hull-Richter
My sister went to Carleton when Paul Wellstone was a professor there. Today I asked her whether she remembered him or had had contact with him. She said that she had had only had one interaction with him. She had been behind a table at some campus event selling raffle tickets to raise money for Parkinson disease research. This was in conjunction with a Parkinson disease patient who was also a Carleton professor (Michel Monnot) who was going to walk across the country for Parkinson's. No one was coming up to her table, and then Wellstone was the first person to approach her. He bought a ticket and then talked to her for a while about the cause and encouraged her to keep up her good work of donating time to this cause. Paul Wellstone has been my hero in the Senate for some time, but I had never asked my sister whether she remembered him. I'm not surprised that she had such a story. She was horribly sad with the news of his death.
Wellstone would have wanted everyone to just keep working for the things we care about. I hope we all get to see another politician like Paul Wellstone. What an amazing and wonderful person he was.
Subj: So when is Bush going to Iraq? November 5th maybe?
I guess Bush plans on going to Iraq on election day so that there will be no news coverage about Florida or any of the other elections around the nation. Also, people will tend to be more glued to their tv and not go out and vote. I am wondering if that is his plan. Whew, these Republicans consume a lot of energy, always having to second guess their next dirty trick and stay one step ahead of them. I never had to take a nap in the middle of the day when Clinton was president. Now, I am tired all the time.
Subj: Republican Presidents create terrorists
Look at the terrorists we have had:
Republicans have been bad for this nation forever. You have to spend lots of energy because of them, being constantly on your toes for what dirty tricks they will pull and what terrorists they will train next. Believe me, if we would listen to Democrats, we would not have these problems.
Woodrow Wilson explained that if we had the League of Nations back then, we would not have problems with another war. They did not listen to him, so we ended up with World War II. Now we have the Palestinian-Israeli situation. This goes on and on. Republicans are dangerous at the helm of a ship. They spawn terrorists, for one thing. Can you think of any terrorist that was spawned during a Democratic administration?
Then they try to brainwash people into thinking that it is a good Christian thing to be Republican. That was never a though process prior to 1980. I have attended Baptist churches over the span of most of my life and that thought process didn't creep in until Reagan came along and slowly but surely, Republicans started to hijack buzzwords like "morality" to try and sucker the voters. We had kicked out the most Christian president we ever had, Jimmy Carter. Don't buy this rhetoric. I say, don't ever vote for a Republican again. They spawn terrorists.
