And we call this progress?

Mr. President,
Besides, your comical mangling of the English language, your actions have given some words like "democracy and “diplomacy” the patina of a dirty word.

Because the United States has been the lone superpower, it’s only normal for many nations to take their que, or at least use your platform of fear-mongering to justify their own repressive activities. Their real reasons are no-doubt as varied as your justifications for war.

While your real reasons for invading Iraq are under constant debate; your “public” rational for war set up the premise to forego diplomacy and years of established protocols when you decided to preemptively invade Iraq. Other nations adjusted their foreign policy with yours.

Israel was one of the first countries to use the “Bush” philosophy to “wall in” the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. They played the terrorist card to cut off fuel, electricity, and water to the Palestinians. They used the same cards to strafe the Palestinians at will.

Israel’s latest outrage involves a new policy which has created a
bitch of a time for the Palestinian Americans who live in the territories. They are told they need a new visa. If they leave the Palestinian territories to get the new three-month visa stamp, they may not be allowed back. If they stay, their current Israeli visas will expire. Many say their previous applications for formal residency in the Palestinian territories were rejected by Israel or conveniently lost them in the system. Many Palestinians believe Israel is doing this as another way to retaliate against them for electing Hamas members to their government. You and Israel have shown your support for democratic institutions in the Mid East as long as they elect leaders you approve of.


Many people want to blame you for everything that goes wrong, but the tensions between the Israelis and the Palestinians were there before you were the president; the area has been a a tinderbox for decades.

But, your lack of effort in trying to solve this root problem in the Mid East, plus your well-received approach to foreign policy by the war-hawks in Israel, set the Palestine territories ablaze. The repercussions from this alone helped spark a major recruitment drive for radical Islamists.

The recruitment drive for more anti-American insurgents followed your unwarranted invasion of Iraq. The ensuing disastrous military operations were like rocket boosters that pushed many Muslims to drop their studies, pick up assault rifles, and improvise explosive devises to drive out the infidels. And so your war plods on. The bloody scythe of violence continues to swing away, cutting down thousands of Iraqis and our young American soldiers like so much wheat in hellish field over your precious oil reserves.

There is no let up but the war has finally turned the corner everyone kept talking about; it is now grown into a civil war. The Sunni leadership in Saudi Arabia is as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. The constant violence has prompted Saudi Arabia to
build a fence along the 560 mile border with Iraq to keep the violence and the refugees at bay.


Saudi Arabia is not the only country that wants to keep the people from an axis of evil country away from their country.

China has also
begun building a huge barbed wire and concrete fence along its border with North Korea.
tens of thousands of refugees began trickling across the border into northeast China for a while now as life became tougher and tougher. China expects thousands of North Koreans refugees to trek across the Yalu and Tumen rivers after you and the UN impose stricter sanctions. According to a Sun Times article, a local farmer claimed that soldiers began putting up the fence near his farm on the same day that N. Korea claimed to set off their nuclear bomb test.

I can’t imagine why N.Korea would want to show the world
they have nuclear weapons? Israel didn’t brag about it when they covertly build their nuclear weapons. My guess is that they were baring their teeth at you junior; to show they are not a toothless tiger like Iraq. They actually HAVE weapons of mass destruction.



Back home in the good old USA, you also got into the fence building business when you recently
signed a law that will pay for hundreds of miles of new fence along the U.S. Mexico border just to appease western Republican lawmakers running for re-election. Vincente Fox, Mexico’s outgoing president and Felipe Calderon the new president have both complained to you about the new fence and your broken promise to set up a guest worker program and turning your back on millions of immigrants who made the mistake of looking for a better life as they worked in the shadows for generations.

America always had a "tolerate-hate" policy towards illegal immigrants because they served a purpose in the agricultural business world. They worked cheaply, around hazardous pesticides, with no legal recourse or protections.

Many may have been paid under the table but they could not escape the local taxes attached to all the goods and services they paid for which boosted the state and local economies for years.

Now, you have symbolized how compassionate America really is towards their plight of those living in the twilight world where sons and daughters may be born on American soil but they themselves, regardless of how many decades they lived here, are on the cusp of being loaded on INS wagon back to their home countries, leaving their homes, their jobs, their families behind. Racist Americans point to any and all incidents involving Hispanics to paint the whole race in hues of crime and thievery, who steal American jobs and threaten to infect American culture.

Its a complicated problem for sure.

Since you inadvertently boosted the recruitment of people that want to strike out at the United States we need to have secure borders more than ever. But how do we address the existing issue of dealing with undocumented immigrants living in our country who have filled a need in our economy for almost a century?

Should we pay for the sins of past government administrations because they looked the other way as immigrants travel across the Rio Grande at will?

The political hell-hole you dug the last five years for the Republican Party forced you to support vigilante, militia extremists agenda. The wall you approved of and the National Guard you sent set a policy which is leaving millions of undocumented worker's families, composed of Hispanic and American nationalities, in limbo.

Several cities and states have chosen to look at this as a "black or white", "with us or against us" issue. I wonder where people across the nation got that notion that everything can be reduced to such simple options?

They taken up the banner and enacted discriminatory measures to either drive out or discourage any assistance to undocumented workers regardless of their situation or record of contribution.

Additional walls and use of our National Guard troops may have seemed like an expedient way of appearing to shore up our porous borders but I'm afraid you made many more enemies than friends. The ripples you made in this pond will reverberate for years.


Building fences and walls have become so fashionable these days it has become this season's “black.”

But doesn't erecting a fence equate to a diplomatic failure?

Doesn’t building a fence give in to a narcissist nationalist xenophobic agenda?

Doesn’t a fence make the people who built it a target of more hatred and future violence?

We hear that globalization is the key to our business survival and yet as nations we want to separate ourselves from people that have a different amount of insoluble pigmentation in their skins, or that speak a different language, or have different religious and cultural traditions.

And yet all of these issues are somehow more tolerable in the global business world. Why?

Does the potential of a monetary reward grease the skids? Does greed allow people to tolerate cultural differences?


Ironic isn’t it; the Berlin wall comes down only to have other walls around the world go up.

And we call this progress?

As a leader of the most powerful nation on earth you set a fine example and you have certainly made your mark, alongside other leaders who destroyed so much as they strove to stubbornly attain their vision of life as they thought it should be.

How about some more cake?

Mr. President,
Do you wake up some mornings wishing your Florida minions hadn't worked so hard to assure your presidency?

But, hey, every once in a while the clouds part and some sunshine peeks through.

Congratulations to you and Cheney for your work on having the "
torture bill" known as "The Military Commissions Act of 2006" and the "you can detain anyone" bill passed. It’s like having your cake and eating it too.


These laws allow you to decide what constitutes "torture" and they also provide anyone from your government, immunity from any lawsuits for anything any of your interrogators are doing, will do or have done to anyone.

They also provide you with the ability to claim anyone in the United States to be charged as a suspect without legal access to any information that substantiates the reasons for their imprisonment. In legal terms, habeas corpus has been suspended for anyone you choose to define as a "combatant."It could be someone who buys an Arabic paper, downloads Arabic news, speaks with a "potential" terrorist, knows a "potential" terrorist, or writes critical articles that you believe are "aiding the terrorists."

It's better to step on a few 200 year-old quaint rules here and there; imprison/torture thousands of innocent foreigners and Americans, than miss one "potential" terrorist. Besides, most Americans don't care as long as you don't mess with their guns and freedom to raise hell on a Saturday night.

It was about time you had some good news.

It's been a heartache lately in the mainstream media with Iraq, Afghanistan, Foley, North Korea, Iran, Abramoff, and disgusted Evangelists.

The terrible news from the National Intelligence Estimate that states our presence in Iraq has fueled a ton of anti-American nut jobs across the world, the steady stream of resignations and indictments of Republican lawmakers, the increased violence in Iraq's civil war, the increased violence in Afghanistan, Iran's refusal to stop their nuclear power program and all the "telling" books recently published with the help of trusted members of your administration have been a bitch on your poll numbers.

Whew that's a boat-load of bad news!

Your "attack and discredit the messenger" machine has never been so busy.

I feel for poor Condi as she tries to head off an
arms race in the south east while you announce that your space program takes precedence over any other country, beginning a "space arms" race." It all sounds a little contrary to me.


You are pushing countries not to build nukes while you clearly intend to build up your space weapons systems.

You can't seem to change your pattern; this sounds like another "I will have my cake and eat it too" approach to foreign policy.

Hey, Japan, and South Korea, "You can't have any nukes, but I will build space weapon systems and you can't do anything out there unless you are my buddy." In your patented, typical "my way or the highway" approach to foreign policy, your administration's has refused to enter negotiations or even less formal discussions on the potential weaponization of space.

According to Theresa Hitchens, director of the nonpartisan Center for Defense Information in Washington, said that the new policy "kicks the door a little more open to a space-war fighting strategy" and has a "very unilateral tone to it."

Could this have anything to do with the incident last week where China "
painted" one of your satellites from the ground?

At the end of September, China has beamed a ground-based laser at U.S. spy satellites that highlighted the vulnerability of American space systems.

No one seems to know what China was doing; they might have been testing their capability to track satellites, not damage them, but even you are capable of only imagining their negative intents.

The House of Representatives tried to block a planned test of "Starfire," a satellite and star tracking program, for fiscal 2007 after they learned it could also be used as an anti-satellite weapon. But, somehow the funds were reinstated after the Air Force assured lawmakers it would be used only for tracking.

Yea, sure, and you don't believe in pre-emption of war either.

The Chinese incident emphasized the need to develop an international code of conduct for space. Currently, "We don't need no badges; there are no rules governing what 40 countries that have satellites, and about a dozen countries that have launch capability, can or can't do.

Go it alone buddy, those foreign bastards can't claim your oil or your private use outer space. My question is when will you get your fill of "cake?"

GOP assumes responsibility as long as Clinton is around to take the blame.

Mr. President,
All the GOP scandals show that Republicans take on responsibility for their actions like water adheres to a duck's back.

Hastert claimed to take responsibility for Foley's folly by blaming ABC news, Soros and ex-president Clinton.

Obvious to all of us in the real world, Hastert just took a tip from watching you handle your miscalculations and judgement errors, blame someone else, preferably a Clinton.

Beyond the glare of pedaphile-seeking reporters, some notable activities have occurred.

The shadow of conspiracy has again reached the marble steps of the White House itself and Karl Rove's aide, Susan B. Ralston,
suddenly resigned after the Abramoff investigation uncovered her complicity in that ongoing scandal. Ralston worked for Abramoff before joining Karl Rove at the White House.

A colleague of hers claimed," She was a key organizer of presidential events. She will be missed because she solves problems."

I wondered who she called on to solve these "problems?" Who were those "problems," Bush detractors, or nosy reporters? Abramoff's lobbying buddies contacted Ralston 69 times. I am sure Ralston consistently rebuffed her ex-boss's request for no-bid contracts.

The other White House official caught up in the probe was David H. Safavian, the procurement chief for the Office of Management and Budget, who was convicted in June of lying about his ties to Abramoff.

There is of course, another notable White House member caught up in illicit activities. "Scooter" Libby was also charged in the Valerie Plame spy scandal.

He is presently attempting to
deluge the court with sensitive information about nine national security issues, the names, and details about various terrorist groups. He, no doubt, hopes the court will provide Vice President's ex-chief of staff with a premise to throw the case out of court because it would compromise National security to divulge such sensitive information.

If you can convince a judge you need to expose "secret" information in order to properly defend yourself, it is as good as a "get out of jail" free card.

North Korea always wanted to be noticed; now they have the world's attention and you helped junior. You made Kim a star.

There is no way your limited imagination ever considered all the turmoil you have brought to the world.

You have been stumbling along in the dark, with a candle in a dynamite factory. Your limited imagination and ignorance of world affairs served as self-imposed blinders to double your difficulty of navigating among the world's powder kegs.

Your consistent mantra of fear mongering about a dangerous world has finally become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Following in the same theme of avoiding responsibility; even Republican presidential hopeful John McCain found someone other than his Republican-dominated government to
blame for North Korea's nuclear test, ex-president Clinton. Don't laugh he actually said that.

Rocket scientists were not required for Mr. Kim to realize nukes are the only deterrent which would give you pause before invading his country. He has a TV; he saw what you did to fellow "axis member" Saddam Heusein.
It is not the fault of the administration that refused to negotiate with North Korea directly, nope; it has to be Clinton's fault.

As far fetched as that sounds it makes perfect sense when your party has nothing to show but one disaster after another.

Meanwhile, Iraq is not the only country spinning away from your influence. Russia and China recently made international news.

Russia is consolidating its energy resources and refuses to share their resources with the international community. It may be my imagination, but it even looks as though they accelerated their consolidation of energy resources after Cheney charged Putin for using his country's energy as a weapon a few months ago.

Gazprom, Russia's natural gas company, recently
broke off talks with five international companies who were looking to buy a stake in an offshore field in Russia. This is not the first oil venture Russia has shunned nor will it be the last.

In conclusion, I find it fascinating that the world has recognized China as the only major power who can deal with North Korea and has significant influence with Iran as well.

China has come to the fore front in international affairs, leaving the United States just sitting in its own stew. Without a doubt, it has to be Clinton's fault.

What a feeling, and yet there is much more to come.

Mr. President,
I have been feeling oddly satisfied lately, almost peaceful. It is not the same feeling I would get for saying "I told you so" to those disillusioned people who supported you, it is better than that.

Now that many major media networks have jumped on the "Bush is incompetent" and "Republicans are Immoral" wagon," I don't feel like a madman yelling into the wind anymore. The winds are not on your back anymore junior, they have severly shifted into a strong headwind and there is a huge chorus of voices in the air daring to question your policies and propaganda.


You have made so many egregious errors how could they help it? You made it easy to disparage you and your administration, it has even become popular to "Bash Bush."

When you proclaimed Iran, Iraq and North Korea as your axis of evil, I was dumbfounded by the extent of your stupidity.

You are such an uneducated, unenlightened shit. You are so easily led around by Crazy-Man Cheney and the other neo-conservatives in your midst.

Did they whisper in your ear; "If you do as we recommend, you will be honored for years Mr. President"; "You will surpass your father's achievements"; You are special; Trust us; God wants you to do this; You are special."

So, what have years of "go-it-alone " and "don't negotiate with people you don't like " policy got you?


Iraq has sucked up almost half a trillion dollars, and thousands of liters of American blood with no end in sight.

It's hard to believe that the United States, the world's super power, invades a small Mid-Eastern country with an emaciated infrastructure; a fourth rate army, and you still found a way to screw it up.

Despite the notorious image you gave Iran they have not been deterred from continuing their work on nuclear power. Anti-American extremist Muslim groups have sprouted up like weeds all over the world. Anti-American sentiment in general has grown in every country.

Lebanon's fledgling democracy has been essentially destroyed when you allowed Israel to bomb their country to pieces.

The Ukraine's "Orange revolution" has come off the tracks and has fallen back into Putin's sphere of influence.

And now North Korea has reportedly exploded a small atomic weapon. It was a puny explosion about a half-kiloton according to a senior intelligence official. I seem to remember another large explosion they set off a few years ago which left a large crater. Our intelligence agency said it was probably created by conventional explosives. Perhaps Kim is, toying with your emotions again.

Your daddy's man James Baker has been sent to bail you out of another mess. Daddy always comes through doesn't he? His bi-partisan committee has been working on the Iraq quagmire and may report that Iraq should be split along ethnic lines with an equal split of oil profits given to each tribe. That's just a guess; of course.


I was so disappointed when Foley's folly became big news.

Forget the lies about getting us into war, Delay's money laundering Cunningham's greed, and Abramoff "pay for play" influence peddling. It doesn't strike a chord with a majority of Americans who believe Congressmen are corrupt; it's just something many Americans expect, but pedophilia, really hits home. Everyone loves children and knows how vulnerable they are.


Didn't you warn all your Republican congressmen to stay away from little boys junior, because just like Monica's dress, they might get some on them?


Remember Watergate? it is not the act so much as it is the coverup that can cause the Republican house of cards to fall.

So many lines so little time.

Mr. President,

Condi's trip to the Mid East is too little too late. The Israel occupation and their merciless bombing of the Palestinian territories have always the main issue and every President since Carter knew it except you.

Her visit to Israel and Palestine is a long time coming.

Although she has been here before, it was always for show, perhaps that is all it is now; a sort of holding action like freezing the opponent's kicker with a time out, until you start a second "shock and awe" campaign in Tehran.

It is the key to resolving many of our woes in that area of the world, but we have done kissed too many Israeli asses to be effective.

It will be up to a different administration to begin this effort in earnest, and they will be starting in a hole so deep they will be able to smell rice cooking.

I am afraid that despite whether IF this a good-faith effort, or not it is a wasted effort.

The news about ex-Republican representative Mark Foley has so many possible lines for late night comics and lampoon-type of news articles.

"Bush says Democrats soft on terrorists, while Republicans are soft on young boys."

"Do you know Republicans don't use bookmarks they just bend over a page."

"Pressure builds on Republicans, until they find relief in the back chamber."

"House needs to get itself cleaned out prior to meeting secretly behind closed doors."

"Republican tattle tail."

"Foley folly foments fear with fellow repugs."

"Republican pedophile claims clergy was cheeky."

"Hastert hasn't heart to hurt household."

"Bush sticks it to Foley but bends over for Hastert."


If the Democrats fail to win at least the House of Representatives this November, it may be time to seriously want to either buy an ample amount of brown shirts and some shiny black hob-nailed boots; join an underground movement, build a bio-shelter, or move out of the country.
