"Our (Election 2004) Fiasco Preview begins where the fiasco began last time: Florida. While The Sunshine State's 2000 debacle gave all of America 36 days of breezy, lighthearted fun, there were negative aspects as well, and the state has been warned by God four times this hurricane season alone to never let it happen again." – Jon Stewart

“It's the Red Sox and the Cardinals, they're going to play each other in the World Series, well, for the first time since 1967. I mean, think about what life was like back then. It was really different. We had a bad economy, an unpopular war, the President was from Texas. Thank God those days are over.”  -- Jay Leno

Yet Another Anti-Bush Poem
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Lost explosives -- many tons.
Feeling safer anyone?
Bush forgot to mind the store.
Must not give him four years more.

Fear mong'ring, they claim of John.
Just another Dick/Dub con.
No regrets, Bush says each day.
Time to tell Bush, "Go away!"

Tax relief, Bush swears we got.

The rest of my poem is here:

Will AHNC cease to exist if Bush wins?


AHNC will be four years old next month.  We're just getting started. I'll be there for you if you are there for me. I look at it as a form of symbiosis.

Hi Lisa and Dave,
I wanted to thank you for the tremendous job that you do. I also wanted to share the following links that I found interesting that you may want to add to your site:
On www.congress.org , you can pledge your vote (for what it's worth). This site also has one of the easier ways to contact one's senator, etc.
Here is a link to the Jon Stewart video shown on Crossfire: http://newmexiken.com/archives/2004/10/003988.php.
Thanks again for all you do. A donation is in the mail. I'm not just saying that!

Dear Judith,
Thank you for writing.
Our jobs here at AHNC are one of the few created under Bush. Ironic, eh?
Thank you for the links.
I am optimistic that Kerry will win. Bush can't rig the entire election--just Florida and Texas. But I am still keeping my fingers crossed.
Thanks for wanting to support us. Every little bit helps us put food on our family.
