Mr. Sugg goes to Washington 

If enough of you vote for him Nov. 5

Far more serious -- and barely reported by the mainstream press -- was that last summer the American military played mock war. A retired general commanded the forces of an unnamed Middle East nation -- clearly Iraq -- and in the make-believe war, he won. The Bushies took away the general's communications and otherwise tried to hogtie him, and he still won. So, the War Party simply declared themselves victorious and slammed the lid on the embarrassing story. But the general wouldn't keep quiet. Neither have numerous other generals and admirals who oppose the war. Retired Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni, former head of Central Command, which would run any war against Saddam, said of the Bush hawks: "I'm not sure which planet they live on."

Oh, by the way, trick-and-treat scare guys in the GOP want to panic voters by claiming the terrorist threat is as great today as it was before Sept. 11, 2001. Duh, then what have we spent the hundreds of billions of dollars on? And why have we disemboweled the Bill of Rights? And why have we jailed thousands without charges or evidence -- and not indicted any of them in connection with 9-11?

If this administration's policies and bellicosity can be defended, I'd sure love to hear Mr. Linder. But, so far, all we get is:

No comment.

So, I'll paraphrase Mr. Linder in his party's smirks at Clinton: Should we reward the Republicans for not telling the truth?

You know you'll always get a comment -- and The Truth -- from soon-to-be Congressman John F. Sugg, aka Senior Editor John Sugg. Don't forget to vote Nov. 5. If you live in the 7th Congressional District, write in John F. Sugg -- don't forget to include the "F" as in "freedom." Seriously. He's a bona fide write-in candidate. Contact Sugg at or at 404-614-1241.
