SUBJECT: I cancelled my AARP membership

Lisa:

I told them the reason for the cancellation was that they were too much in the pocket of the current illegal and immoral administration for my liking.

I said that Bush and his pack of rich buddies don't know what it's like to have to work for a living, live from paycheck to paycheck and to have to pay a small fortune for medical care and prescriptions. They will never have to live on Social Security (that is, if that's still around after they get finished).

I also said that Bush doesn't give a damn about "ordinary" people and I don't want to belong to an organization that lets him run roughshod over us.

Dear Terry,

Thanks for writing.  Good for you! Bush really made sure seniors would have a nice holiday season this year.  A republican tampering with Medicare is sure to backfire.  I had planned on depending on Medicare when I retire--guess I am going to have to find another way to pay for what I have paid into since 1968.

I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving anyway!

Lisa

Newsday - November 26, 2003

"If George Bush was here today, I'd probably kill him," said Irene Lannon, 80. "I don't mean I really would," she said with a laugh, "but he makes me mad."....
 


 

 

"It can happen." -Judy Tenuta


I wrote this after reading about the attack on 2 soldiers in Mosul who's bodies were brutalized after they were killed. I am so Outraged by this senseless war for Vain Glory, Oil and some kind of starting block towards Corporate America taking control of the Middle East. I am fricking sick and tried of all the deaths, ours and theirs. My writing style isn't the best but I hope you like what I wrote anyway.

Dear Whitehouse Selected

Here’s from the soldier
Who’s friend was brutally killed
In the desert sands of Iraq

The ones coming home

In body bags

From the men and women
Praying and crying
Themselves to sleep
Wondering if tomorrow
Death will come their way


Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
And
Go to Hell


Here’s from the innocent civilians
In an unjust war
Terrorized, maimed and killed
By invading soldiers
Who are just following orders

Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
And
Go to Hell


Here’s from the mothers, fathers,
Sisters, brothers, wives, husbands
Fiancées and children
Of those war dead
Coming home but never seen by the public


For the wounded
With missing limbs
Mental trauma
Unexplained illnesses
And other injuries

They ain’t the same as
A year ago
Never will be


Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
and
Go to Hell


Here’s from the families
Of those who died on 9-11
For your Dark hearted
Political and Financial
Profiteering at their Loss


Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
And
Go to Hell


From dissenter’s
Who you and your press
Branded Un-American, Un-Patriotic, Traitors
The careers you tried to destroy

For Max Cleland, Robert Byrd, Cronkite
Howard Dean, Wesley Clark, Tim & Susan
Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Al Franken
The Dixie Chicks, Mellencamp, Springsteen and Steve Earle


Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
And
Go to Hell


Here’s from the World
Nations once united
By 9-11 outrage and sorrow
You tried to use this support
To start another World War
But with Arrogance and Ignorance
You flipped them off and went it alone
When they said No


Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
and
Go to Hell


Finally
Here’s from the American Public
Those who predicted the increase in Terrorism
Who feared the senseless deaths
Who know you were lying


Here’s from the Innocent Americans
Who trusted you
Who in their naïve love of Country
Bought your Bullshit
Who now feel Cheated and Cheapened


Dear Whitehouse Selected
F YOU
And
Go to Hell!!!!!
