The administration loves all private contractors
Because they define virility
And, more importantly, embody the goal of power
Without any responsibility.

People for the American Way

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Chafee defection expected, though puzzling to some.  Would that they all become Patriotic Americans rather than Repuglican poodles!  It’s time to stand up for real American values, it’s time to relinquish party affiliation and become true American citizens!

Jim Ridout: George Bush Feigning Success in Iraq

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by Jim Ridout

There has been a lot of talk this past week regarding the feigning policy of George Bush and the report given by General Petreaus. It has rallied the right. Freedom March has begun to run ads that are pro-war, which I believe are a first. Sort of a record breaker for them, to prey upon the misery and loss of families who have lost loved ones to assure them theirs that have departed this earth will be followed by many others if they have their way.

Mortgage defaults continue to soar;
The only closure available is fore.

Cindy Sheehan: At What Price, Safety?

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I am consistently amazed at things that right-wing nut jobs throw at me to justify their support of an unjustifiable war.

They know they are lying for their masters now, if they, like George and Dick, didn't always know they were lying.

There were multiple reports of disenfranchising of Black voters on the day of the election in 2004 in Florida and Ohio. ... How could you concede the election on the day?"
