This has been some roller coaster ride. Not that we don’t appreciate it George, but your antics, and those of your friends and associates are really getting out of hand. Look, I know that I am not a part of your “base”, heh, heh, but I am an American, and that kind of makes me your boss, heh heh, so as one of your many bosses, I’m writing this to tell you that the American People know what time it is. Maybe you don’t realize it yourself, so I’m here to make sure you get the message, it’s time for you to quit thinking that you are the Decider and the Commander-in Chief, and all of the other things that you believe you are, because in reality, most people in this country believe that you and Cheney and Gonzales should be in jail rather than in the executive branch.

Tonight I listened to “Propaganda Tonight with Katie Couric”. She told us that we are about to be hit with another terrorist attack. Just how do you know that? I thought you said we are fighting them over there so that we don’t have to fight them over here. So she’s just kidding, right? You’re not going to tell me that now we have to fight them over there and over here at the same time? Is that what you are trying to tell us?

So let me get this straight, with all the new laws and directives, if they launch a terrorist attack on us here, and do the kind of damage that you alleged that they did last time, is this when you put on your military field jacket and proclaim yourself dictator for the good of the country? I’m not kidding here because you and all your friends are starting to freak me out. All this talk of terrorism and has gotten the people in this country really scared (not). I don’t want to sound glib, but this sounds like the other ten-thousand terror alerts that we have sat through before this one. So what makes this one any different?

Tonight I watched a re-run of “Law and Order, Criminal Intent” and Chris Noth was on the show. The character played by Vincent D’Onofrio asks him if he ever heard of The Patriot Act, Noth looks up and tells him “I read the original version, it was called 1984”, So how ‘bout them apples, George? Can you see what your country thinks of the crap your administration has shoved down the American People’s throat?

Let me tell you something Mr. “All Powerful Chief Executive of the Most Powerful Nation that the Planet Earth has ever Seen in History”, you have succeeded in getting most of your fellow citizens very angry, and that is saying a lot. Most people in this country could care less about politics, but in this case, even your average Joe Six-Pack is getting a little pissed off at seeing friends come back in body bags while you keep threatening people and rewarding your rich friends when they take their businesses overseas and while the oil companies gouge out the last dollar on the day before payday so that Joe Blow can buy a half gallon of gas to get to work. Don’t think that we’re too stupid to notice that the price of gas rose 33% before MemorialDay and the Big Oil Companies blamed it on “refinery breakdowns” and these same refineries were miraculously fixed just after the holiday. How much do you want to bet that the price of gas rises on the 1st of July, and then again the week before Labor Day? What business were you in before you got into politics? Oh, that’s right, oil.

But that’s not what’s got Americans pissed off, it’s the death and the destruction, that and watching our rights that we used to stand for gutted. We as Americans no longer have the moral authority to ask any nation on the face of the Earth to stop doing anything. Not while we imprison people and torture then without them even knowing what they are charged with! Sure, some of those people are terrorists, just like some of the criminals on the streets of America might be the scum of the Earth. That doesn’t give us the right to be as cruel and unmerciful to them, as they are to their enemies. We are supposed to be better than they are. That’s why we are supposed to be the “good guys”. What I can’t understand is why you and your fellow murderers can’t see that? You are probably the most hated man on the planet! You may think its Osama Bin Laden, but it’s not, it is you! You have caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Do you think that you can do this without paying some kind of price?

You claim to be a religious man? I really can’t believe that. I believe that you are killing people so that the Oil Companies can get this Oil Law passed in Iraq. That’s a terrible thing to say, but that’s what I believe. I also believe that you want to attack Iran. I also believe that if you are given the chance, you will not step down in January, 2009. I believe that if there is a natural or man-made disaster in this country, you will do whatever it talks to prolong your time in The White House. Just because I believe this, doesn’t make it so, I realize that. What I do know however, if not for you and your gang of thugs that took control in a virtual coup in 2000, more than half a million people would be alive today, raising their children and singing songs, writing poetry, making love top their wives and husbands and adding their gift of life to this world. You took that away from them. You and Cheney and Rumsfeld and Rice and all the others that can only see things their own way, have taken their most precious possession away from them.

George, the American People are slow to react, but once provoked they are also hard to control, and they never forget. If Nixon were alive, he’d tell you that. Think about what happened to him, and he didn’t do half of what you’ve done! The American People Know What Time It Is.
