At times, when I am not writing a column, I do take the time to write letters to the editors of various newspapers and magazines. I have even taken the time to write the broadcast media sharing my opinion on one subject or another.
In fact this letter sent into Lou Dobbs Tonight by me was read on-air this past Monday night: “Dear Lou, Welcome back and we sure did miss you. You must be wondering where to start as the continued war on the Middle class rages on. We the people need a voice of reason and most of all sanity coming from you, Lou.”
While the mainstream print and broadcast media may not like what we have to say and may not print or air them, I still feel it important. This way they have a way of gauging the anger that resides out here in mainstream America.
As they pontificate using the same pundits over and over, there is little voice given to your average John and Jane Q. Public. You know the backbone of this country. The ones who toil and sweat with corporatists hoping we will buy their products advertised within the mainstream media.
Tonight, I wrote yet another letter blasting President Bush. As I read it, my blood began to boil. I would love nothing more if each and everyone reading this were to fire off a letter to the Washington Post. Below is the one that I just fired off tonight.

Subject: Just go away, President Bush
I could not get through reading your article, Bush Deplores American Timidity without blowing a gasket. I paid much attention to this quote of his, "We have lost sight of what it means to be a nation willing to be aggressive in the world and spread freedom or deal with disease. And we have lost our confidence in the ability to compete internationally," Please, President Bush do not include we in that statement since you are the one that has lost sight. You are the one who has dictated to this country and the world for far too long. Bush speaks of freedom when freedom of speech has been assaulted in this country? He speaks of dealing with disease as he cuts the budgets to health programs and delivering health care to children in this country? Americans do have confidence to deal with the world. It is he who has destroyed how we stood on the world stage.
On the same day which former Vice President Al Gore won the Nobel Prize, I only think of what we could have had. The Supreme Court in its despotic ways should have stayed out of the people’s business. It is because of Bush, Cheney, and the Supreme Court that over 3,800 of our soldiers are now dead and one million innocent Iraqis are dead. That would not have happened under a Gore administration. For that I am certain of.
As you will see, I was hopping mad at our esteemed president and I use that term in the most sarcastic manner. While they may not print it, I felt it needed to be shared with the American people as President Bush chose to chide ‘we the people’.
Anytime that you see an article with Bush giving ‘we the people’ a directive, what plans he has in the works or his conduct of this war, just get to your keys and fire off a letter. Let us do so in defense of all those who have died during his administration.
