Wake up people!
Who is this Bush administration really serving?
What have they done for you lately?
January 20, 2005
The American response to diminishing fossil fuel,
declining air quality and traffic congestion? Build and buy bigger
Humvee's and invade Afghanistan and Iraq. Now they plan and scheme
to invade Iran even before poor Iraq is put back together again
by American firms generously handed hundreds of contracts by this
administration in a winner takes all in your face gesture to deride
any nation which dissented over the invasion. Gone are the days
of world community. The UN is made a laughing stock. Now it is
back to "the law of the jungle" and "might
The net result of renewing the arms race has been to make the
world a more dangerous place. Bush ended the long standing Intercontinental
Ballistic Missile Treaty and is installing a new generation of
long range missiles in Alaska. Gone is the era of nuclear
disarmament. "Global economy" and "spreading democracy" are
euphamisms for economic imperialism or American mercantilism. The "War
on Terrorism" is a euphamism for a war on dissidents.
wages his wars without consulting the State Department, the
CIA or the Pentagon. He has filled his private councils with
advisors from the American Enterprise Institute. In his second
term he is canning anyone who disagreed with him in his first term
sycophants around himself.
The Bush administration is laying seige to the environment and
is selling off public lands. It is once more trying to ram drilling
for oil in the Alaska wilderness through Congress without debate.
Bush is trying to privatize the Social Security system. Nothing
in his policies is intended to help middle America and the working
class. He has cleverly used the fear factor of 911 to force his
Congress has been a rubber stamp giving Bush unusual authority
under the War Powers Act eventhough a "War on Terrorism"
is not really a war but an artifice existing only in the abstract
and could go on forever with enemies imagined or real everywhere
and nowhere and he is bankrupting our children's generation to
pay for his follies.
Osama bin Laden is still on the Bush payroll; witness how Osama
emerged from hiding after all this time just prior to the presidential
Americans to vote for Kerry. This was a perfect way to use the
fear factor to get the swing voters to vote for Bush because "By
God, he is not afraid to bomb our enemies."
Who has benefitted from 911? The military-industrial complex and
the intelligence community! Their Iraq war against imaginary WMDs
has created the largest national deficit in US history. Meanwhile
our public schools lay off staff and go wanting for materials at
best and at worst they close down. The Patriot Act has assaulted
our civil liberties. We are living in another McCarthy Era.
What does Bush think he has? A mandate? Nearly half the popular
vote was against him. The Republican Party is the rich man's party.
who is not wealthy who votes Republican is either a masochist or
a hopeless dreamer who believes that somehow by association with
the Republican Party they too will become rich..."Voodoo Economics,

Wake up people! Who is this administration
really serving? What have they done for you lately? All they
have done for you is make air travel into a major pain in the ...
not any safer...
Where is the national debate, where is the dialogue
in Congress, it is time to argue...
And while we are about that, it is time
to question the Keynesian Economic theory of Grow and Grow which
has been driving this
global economization for the past 40 years... has putting multi
corporations in charge of the world and in charge of your life
really improved the quality of your life? I think not. Where
is the end of a philosophy which preaches that if an economy
growing it is failing?
Every day I look at world more and more
crowded and competitive, and with depleting resources. I see
technology being used to replace human jobs as cashiers in retail
and airline passenger checkers and telephone receptionists.
to become of all the people whose jobs have been lost to
so that a capitalist can cut his costs?
Look how the flight
of capital has destroyed entire sectors of our economy like
farming and manufacturing so that capitalists can take advantage
labor in China. In 30 years when all the workers of the
are demanding the same pay and a clean environment what
will the capitalists
