Subject: Let's get Al Gore running again
I first want to thank you for posting my thoughts to your readers and my letter to former Vice President Al Gore. It has been brought to my attention that I did not provide the contact information where your readers can then contact Al Gore where many can plead for him to run in the 2008 presidential race. So, below I have now provided the contact information for Al Gore's Tennessee office: Gore's contact information:
The Office of the Honorable Al Gore
I ask that you do post this so that we the people who are sick of the corruption, criminal behavior, greed and the many lies told to us, can write this honorable man stating that we have had enough. There are many who feel through these actions that they are ready to give up on the political process and I too have had those moments as I wrote in my thoughts posted on your site.
In my moments of despair, disgust where I do feel like giving up, I read what Al Gore stated in the third debate of the 2000 presidential campaign where he said, "And I want to tell you what I tell them: Sometimes people who are very idealistic and have great dreams, as young people do, are apt to stay at arm's length from the political process because they think their good hearts might be brittle, and if they invest their hopes and allow themselves to believe, then they're going to be let down and disappointed.
"But thank goodness we've always had enough people who have been willing in every generation to push past the fear of a broken heart and become deeply involved in forming a more perfect union. We're America. And we believe in our future, and we know we have the ability to shape our future."
It has also come to my attention that some feel he did not fight hard enough for this race, but my answer to them is that he fought for those votes to be counted through the courts for 37 days. Upon his concession speech some were quick to anger, which caused me to say to many, "One man can fight a battle, but he needs an army to win the war and America did not come to Al Gore's side to become such an army."
Also during this time, his family was terrorized as many gathered outside his home (The Naval Observatory) and chanted, "Get out of Cheney's home!" over and over. How soon do many forget that? Al Gore could have faded into the background never to be heard from again, but time after time he has given many powerful policy speeches where he condemned the Iraq War and the Patriot Act. He was ridiculed by the Democratic Party leadership for his endorsement of Governor Howard Dean when he was running for president. Senator John Kerry had this to say when he learned of Al Gore's endorsement of Gov. Dean, "is about the future, not about the past." I seem to remember reading a Buzzflash.com article written by Monica Friedlander concerning vote counting where Senator Kerry had this to say about the voter fraud that took place in the 2000 presidential election: "Stop crying in your teacups," he told an audience in response to outcries about the stolen election of 2000. "Get over it!" ("He is impatient with Democratic oratory about the 'stolen' election," a July 2 article in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer noted.)
Subject: Gays Sent to Battle
Apparently the U.S. Armed Forces is so desperate for bodies that they're allowing OPENLY gay service members to do battle in Iraq. So I guess they're not "good" enough to marry but they are just fine to slaughter and be slaughtered in this insane war.
Subject: Chickenhawk Down
Q. What do you get when you cross a chickenhawk with a dove?
A. Nothing. A chickenhawk can't get it up for peace.
Let's all send Viagra to the White House and Pentagon and maybe these people will stop having to kill to get their thrills and we can all relax a little around here. (note to bird-flu birds: please stay away. we are already under attack by a flock of the flightless yellow-eyed neocon thumper. Thank-you).

Subject: Open Letter to CNN concerning Daryn Kagan
Do we have to watch Rush Limbaugh's mistress on CNN's Live Today ever again??
When a right-wing drug addict is reading his love letters from his apparently right-wing CNN mistress on the radio, that's where I depart from CNN.
Let's see, "This is great. This sounds like you wrote this speech. This sounds like you giving this speech."
Yep, it's GONE.
"On the October 6 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh read a "note" that, he said, came from his "mistress in Georgia," an apparent reference to CNN anchor Daryn Kagan. According to Limbaugh, his "mistress" said of President Bush's October 6 speech on the war on terror, "This is great. This sounds like you wrote this speech. This sounds like you giving this speech." Limbaugh said he agreed: "And I was going, 'Rah, rah. That's exactly right.' "

Subject: The President's First Veto
Astounding! Here's the guy who's scaring the hell out of us with his BS about imminent threats and his phony perpetual war on terror, now saying that he's going to veto legislation that would outlaw the use of torture, when said outlawing is exactly what's needed if we the people are to change the world. It'll be our jump-start to glory.

Subject: Keystone Cop Administration
Hey, can the rage; this is funny stuff!
Polls go down; alarms go off, distraction accomplished. It is a well-known fact that most reporters cannot concentrate on more than one news item at a time.
Administration wisdom (oxymoron noted) says that we aren't really against the war we just need to have it explained to us better. Yeh, Georgie you got some serious "'splainin' to do." Just send Bush out to explain to us about why he is right and we're wrong. It worked so well for Social Security. (Personally I think they just want to keep him out of Washington)
Bush is the king of Corruption and cronyism. He also leads the field in the lack of competence and accountability. Democrats should be ashamed. Whatever sins you may have committed in the past this administration has outdone you once again. Whatsamattawihyou?
New York says it has a terror threat, Homeland Security says, "no you don't" and so it goes. Hello Mr. Left Hand, do you have any idea what Mr. Right Hand is doing? DO YOU?
I just checked on the U.S. national Debt Clock and right now the country has a deficit of $7,983,672,643,090.82. The population of the U.S. is about 297,374,683. That means your share is $26,847.18. Want to write a check for that or would you like to put it on your Master Card? The National Debt has continued to increase an average of $1.62 billion per day since September 30, 2004. Want to talk about them late charges Sweetie?
You should pray that no other national disaster is imminent. Please Lord, no hurricanes, tornadoes or earthquakes for a while. Not until FEMA figures out what to do with those truckloads of ice they are moving all over hell's half acre. You know, I have never claimed to be a genius, but wouldn't it have been a whole lot cheaper to just dump the damn ice out somewhere rather than giving it a tour of the country? Like they say you just can't make stuff like this up.

Subject: Hitting the nail on its head
That's how accurate BuzzFlash's Headline today on our politicos unwillingness to impeach those two mass-murderers who are simultaneously front and cover for the powers that be. We the people have only two options left as to what sort of world. Either we continue to wait for those f-----g politicos to, for the first and only time in their lives, really do something that's of, for and by the people or we the people take matters into our own hands and change the world We have to begin changing it immediately, though, because there's no time to waste. By the end of this century the Arctic ice will have completely melted, which is certainly a nasty and cruel legacy to leave to one's loved ones in that it amounts to nothing more than a one way ticket on the dead end straight ahead. So which of the two options will we the people choose?

Subject: They've Shown Their Hands
I can't understand why more liberal news sites aren't raising holy hell about Bush's threat to veto the defense bill solely because it limits their "right" to TORTURE!
My word! Have we become so inured to their horrors that we can't muster any outrage when the (so-called) President of the United States objects to an amendment that limits his ability to torture human beings? What has the United States become?
Isn't one of the reasons they've given for ousting Saddam Hussein that he tortured people?
Isn't that what the Communists and the Nazis did?
And now the leader of America is saying that a ban on torture would "hamstring" his efforts to wage his illegal war!
We need either to trumpet this from the rooftops until Mr. and Mrs. Thick Average American grasps the implications of it--
--or we need to give up and let the neo-fascists win.
They stole power by taking a series of blowjobs and a "cigarjob" and making them seem like the worst crimes ever and harping on it until repetition drove it through the thick average skull.
Are we to write a headline and post an article and act like, oh, well, it's just Friday's outrage -- aren't they awful -- and aren't I wonderful for being against them?
This is f'ing torture we're talking about.
Most people can't get their minds around what it's like to be tortured. To most it's just something that Vietnam vets, foreign people, or movie characters go through. But torture f'ing hurts. Torture makes a healthy mind wish for death.
Torture is something other countries do.
And that this evil clown prince has shown his approval of it by threatening to veto an amendment against it is something we should be trumpeting on for weeks to come -- until Mr. and Mrs. Hypochristian realize that torturing someone is just a little bit worse than getting an extramarital blowjob in the White House.
If we don't beat the drum for weeks about this then those of us who consider ourselves as patriots standing up against the tyranny of the Bush Gang will have dropped the ball.
If we don't stuff this down the throats of the American people then we're just killing time with our anti-Bush sites and blogs.
This evil man who demands the right to torture is the same man who said, a little while back:
"I understand the anguish that some feel about the death that takes place."
