Subject: "The Worst Thing About Stupidity Is Its Insistency!" -- Sam's Despair
CLUELESS GEORGE is at it again! The President of the United States actually stood by a filing cabinet in Parkersburg, W VA and stated that Americans should not believe the treasury bonds were worth anything as a guarantee for Social Security benefits in the future! We buy those bonds, Europe buys those bonds, Asia buys those bonds and yet there is Mr. Bush undermining the revenue and the confidence for them and discouraging anyone from making a purchase! Meanwhile, Mr. Bush and his scripted circus act are traveling through the U.S. and are driving harder then Tiger Woods at the Masters to convince a wary American public his plan has merit! All Mr. Bush's policies reflect a unilateral attitude to do it his way or no way!
This is one time, and hopefully the beginning of many times, the American people WILL NOT CONFORM to his one party rule. As far as his ill-thought policies like this one, let's hope he is walking a beaten path that will lead to nowhere, and this will be the first of many ”nos” he gets that will not only make him a political lame duck, but a political dead duck!
All Intelligence investigations clear Mr. Bush and cohorts despite Mr. Bush and others insisting they never manipulated anyone, never lied about facts later proven untrue, and never ignored obvious pre-war intelligence and omitted dissenting opinions! Their propaganda was NEVER challenged by the media. They also reject the idea they manipulated information to shape their war policy. Also it’s not their fault about mistakes in judgment in enlisting Chalabi! Mr. Bush, Mr. Gonzales, Mr. Cheney, Mr. Rumsfeld and Mr. Bolton have never done anything wrong, yeah right!
More cover-ups? There have been accusations about the Pentagon trying to keep the American public from knowing or constantly seeing our seriously injured soldiers! They have been transporting them at night to avoid the bad publicity. Mr. Bush and the Bush/Rove political machine have been instrumental in banning coverage of photos of the coffins of our honored dead soldiers! We also know the media does not report TOTAL deaths or injuries of our soldiers or Iraqis, so this is just more subterfuge! Unfavorable news out of Iraq is inhibited by both the Iraqi government and the Bushies!
Lies of omission are not new in the Bush deficit of honesty! In
fact lies, and misrepresentations of policies, falsehoods that led
to war, budgets that DO NOT contain all the costs and questionable
Administration appointments all lead to the truth of George W. Bush,
as we can conclude the “Truth is brought by a lame messenger!”
Subject: An Open Letter To Judge Roy Moore of Alabama
I'm a JEW, God gave the Ten commandments to Moses, a Jew, on Mount Sinai, thousands of years before Jesus, a JEW, ever walked this earth. Jesus was not born as a Christian nor did he die as a Christian. Jesus died as a Jew. Jesus will get seen as a Jew from now to eternity.
I resent people such as you attempting to use the TEN commandments given to the Jewish people, not Christians, to make this United States into a Theocracy. We do not live in a Christian nation. I also resent you calling this United States a christian nation especially when my people walked this earth thousands of years before christians ever walked this earth.
As a Jew, I don't view myself as one of the chosen people, but neither should you, and we should not have a chosen religion either in this country. If you want people to see your religion in practice they can go to church and they can watch real christians tend to the poor and also not stop government from helping the poor, like most Republicans appear to do.
I notice many fake christians appear to bellow about sexual morality and reproductive matters when they instead should appear the first ones to go to a homeless shelter and wash the feet of homeless people and serve them meals. Preaching morality limited to sexual and reproductive matters without good works makes a person a fake christian in my view.
Since you appear to talk about adultery and homosexuality, you might want to save your loudest bellowing criticism for these adulterers: Former Republican speaker NEWT GINGRICH, Republican representative HENRY HYDE, Former Republican Representative BOB LIVINGSTON, and these homosexuals: Republican national committee chairman Kenneth Mehlman, Republican political consultant Arthur Finkelstein. I suggest you look to your Republican Party for immorality first.
As far as religion goes, I would say that God wants people to be
honest, kind, generous and not act as hypocrites, which in my view
you appear. When I see you wash the feet of a poor man next to the
graven image of the Ten Commandments you had manufactured, then
perhaps I would have some respect for you. Until then I will look
to God for my morality and not you.
[BuzzFlash Note: For the record, on Mehlman, see "GOP national chair avoids question about his sexuality" (PrideSource.com).]
Subject: Great interview with Barbara Ehrenreich
Congratulations on your interview with Barbara Ehrenreich. I've
read Nickel and Dimed and identified with it, even though
I'm one of the overeducated/underemployed population. (Lesson to
any kids reading this: DO NOT major in English unless you really,
REALLY want to teach or publish academic blah-blah. I was an English
major because I wanted to become a Great Writer. OK, stop laughing.)
At least my letters appear in Buzz every now and then.)
Exactly. If you choose the right parents -- as Dubya obviously did -- nothing is impossible. Your financial screw-ups are fixed by Those in High Places; the rest of your messes are wiped up by the Nickeled and Dimed classes; best of all, your foot is solicitously placed on each rung of the ladder no matter how many times you fall off and land on your head.
If you're poor, you're probably (a) not favored by God -- and
after all, He knows best; or (b) as Ehrenreich says, you made the
wrong "choices." What?? You didn't go to college because
you couldn't AFFORD to? SHAME on you: if you'd chosen the right
womb to implant in, you might have made Skull and Bones. What??
You were poor and had kids??? How STUPID of you. Of course, you
aren't entitled to birth control or abortion or even sex education;
not only are they an abomination to God, but you couldn't afford
them anyway. Your lot in life was Abstinence Only -- even if you
died at 80 alone and childless. And poor.

Subject: Iraq Body Count ...
Anyway, I remember reading out of Iraq numbers that were at 50,000
body count and around that time, the US put a stop to the counting
and of course, the US military was not reporting these numbers.
Since then, I have seen the 100,000 and read one article that said
it was probably closer to 200,000. These seem more realistic with
our weaponry used on this Country. Reports were coming over the
Internet through other papers back then. I wonder what al Jazeera
has to say about body count today. I would believe them if they
said 20,000 Iraqi civilians were killed.

Why? The DEMOCRATS are running for office against the republicans. AMERICA'S DECLINE AT HOME AND ABROAD was brought on by the REPUBLICAN PARTY. THANK THE REPUBLICAN PARTY FOR THE WAR IN IRAQ. Thank the REPUBLICAN PARTY for outrageous gas prices. Thank the REPUBLICAN PARTY for high real estate taxes. Thank the REPUBLICAN PARTY for the escalating supermarket prices. Thank the REPUBLICAN PARTY for low wages, no jobs etc., you get the idea?
Bush isn't running for president again (?), don't you think it's
best we attack the REPUBLICAN PARTY for all the ills of AMERICA
instead of the leader and his little tails from now until 2008?
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!
