In The News: CindySheehan_091005Sometimes I look at what I think Senator McCain would be doing, and what Obama’s doing and I can’t discern any difference." --Cindy Sheehan. The anti-war movement which hasn't 'moved' much since the bulk of US troops in Iraq began 'moving' to the 'Stans is on the move again. Cindy Sheehan and some friends ("61 people in total were arrested at the protest,") chained themselves to the White House fence yesterday. She recently said "It's been change in the wrong direction", and HER direction is a new domicile... She's moving to Washington , D.C.

Meanwhile, "Liberal" San Francisco says "YES!" to war:
As the world awaits Barack Obama's decision on Afghanistan Commander General Stanley McChrystal's request for another 40,000 pair of "boots on the ground" in the Afghanistan War, and Barack Obama appeals to NATO to view the Afghanistan War as their own, the City of San Francisco prepares to host its annual all forces military recruitment drive and military festival, also known as Fleet Week and the Blue Angels Air Show, from October 8th to 13th.

In 2007, I studied the official procedures for scheduling a Blue Angels Air Show on the FAQs page of the Official Website of the Blue Angels Air Show and learned that, in order to have a Blue Angels Air Show, a city must submit a request to the Secretary of the U.S. Navy by the end of September, a year in advance, so I called California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, and Representative Nancy Pelosi to ask who had requested the 2007 Blue Angels Air Show. Barbara Boxer's office called me back the next day to say that "it was a local request," and gave me San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's telephone number: (415) 554-6141. [In Full]

Folks, your children are going to ask you some day in the not-too-distant future: "What did you do in the 'anti-war' daddy (mommy)?". "How come I have to use 10 year old school books and the teachers keep quitting because they have to sleep at homeless shelters and keep getting sick but they don't have health insurance?"

Get on it, or your children may not HAVE much of a future. See the next piece.

The president and Secretary of 'Defense' Gates are going to visit the war's 'financial planners' and a bi-partisan group of lawmakers from congress today. President Obama has been told it will cost TWO - THREE BILLION DOLLARS MORE EVERY YEAR to send 40,0000 extra troops to Afghanistan for whatever the duration might be. The president will also visit the National Intelligence Center where he may make a speech explaining why we're there at all. Expect lots of presidential smiles, 'hope for something-or-other', and not much in the way of truth.

An 'aside' from Da' Buffalo... Why isn't president Obama giving this speech to draft age college students? IS he attempting to carry on BushBoy'z tradition of only speaking at friendly, safe audiences about controversial, and potentially nation destroying (our nation) issues?

A dissembling and analysis of General Stanley McChrystal's pre-programmed war "Infomercial" speeches about the nature of our war on Afghanistan, via CounterPunch... "'60 Minutes' and the General by Bruce Jackson".

In Honduras the coup makers have allegedly revoked the decree of martial law (("...has promised to suspend a decree that suspended civil liberties.) but the legitimate president is still sitting in the Brazilian embassy where the coup's deadline for them to either 'turn him over or be forcibly shut down', has passed. A first hand account from Edgard Garrido, Reuters photographer, until recently, holed-up in the Brazilian embassy with the legal president of Honduras Manuel Zelaya. Narco News Bulletin has more on the situation in Honduras, including a link to this article at Earth Island Institute "INTERVIEW WITH ZELAYA: Terms Being Offered 'Aren’t Sincere'"

They ARE taking over the government! Our Federal 'Czars'... What are they doing? We're going to find out. The one responsible for the pay scale of the financial and banking executives who had been 'bailed out', Kenneth Feinberg, has made a decision to limit the cash payouts executives will receive by 'regulating' their excess earnings and bonuses which will be paid as 'stocks' that won't be eligible for cashing-out for a number of years (enforced stock 'options'?). That rule will be built into federal regulations, eliminating the need to clear it with congress.
