Another whiner

Look Whose Life Bush Destroyed

While doing a search on the Web today we came across this fascinating "letter" posted on e-thepeople.org. Take a gander:

Bush cost me my job, my kids and my houses

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak my mind. I lost my job this past year. When Clinton was president I was secure and prosperous, but in the last year, we had to close our operations. We simply could not compete with foreign labor. This foreign labor worked for low pay under very bad conditions.

They worked very long shifts, and many even died on the job.

This competition could hardly be called "fair." I was forced out of the place where I had worked for 34 years.

Not a single government program was there to help me.

How can Bush call himself "compassionate?" Far worse, I lost two of my sons in Bush's evil war in Iraq. They gave their lives for their country, and for what? So that Bush's oil buddies can get rich. My pain of losing my sons is indescribable.

While it is trivial next to the loss of my sons, I regret to say that I also lost my home. I simply have nothing left. How can Bush call himself a Christian when he neglects people like me? I am a senior citizen with various medical problems. I'm not in a position where I can begin a new career. I was reduced to the point where I had to live in a hole in a ground, all because of President Bush.

And when the authorities found me there, did they have any compassion for my misfortune and ailments? No, I was arrested. Mr. Bush, I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a compassionate man! I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a Christian. If I had any money left, I would donate it to the Democrat Party.

If Al Gore had been elected in 2000 I would still have a job, a home, and most importantly, my dear sons!

I bet this letter-writer also decries the Patriot Act as some sort of jack-booted, Nazi-like shredding of the Constitution.

The 'if butt' folks are sure a noisy lot! This guy failed to plan and save for the potential we all face in the workforce...losing our jobs. If he was riding the companies disability band wagon, which it sounds a bit like he was, he should have known up front that nothing is forever. Losing one child at war much less two is certainly devastating. I have to wonder if they themselves had never considered the possibility of not returning home. I find it hard to believe that they had no clue when they signed, went to boot, and then trained for their MOS that combat/deployment wasn't a reality.

Foreign labor, which is being used illegally by companies, is causing hardship for us. The president isn't the only one who can change things, and actually he ISN'T the one. If Bush decided tomorrow to ______________(insert your favorite 'to do ' item here), it won't make it happen with out a bunch of those pesky house and senate folks. As for living in a hole and getting arrested, well....aren't there tons of Democratic sponsored/run shelters for the homeless? Why didn't this democrat get his favored food stamps and welfare? Public housing too?
I think the letter is BS.

Uh, did you read until the end?

Hang on, does anyone believe this is anything but satire?

Try this...

'Bush gave me everything I wanted and more.'

I have been rather busy lately, but with the US government doing its utmost to secure Iraq and finally liberate the populace from terror, I can safely go on the internet without being picked up by goons today, and deliver a big thank you to George Bush and his wonderful team in Washington.

To my friends in the American governemnt,

I could hardly believe it when I got all the cred for the 9/11 heist. I barely knew the guys that did it, but I'm proud of them, and I wish they could see me now. I know they'd thank you too.

First, I would like to thank George Bush and the gang for getting rid of Saddam Hussein, the secular bastard, and giving the people of Iraq a real shot at establishing a government and constitution that would shine in the eyes of Allah.

Secondly, for killing many of our brothers in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last three years, martyring them to heaven, and spurring others to join us. That was a real morale booster.

Thirdly, for opening up the market in Iraq. I hope that our organisation can do some really effective work there in the future on behalf of our brother Arabs, Persians and the proud Kurds of the North.

Fourthly, for taking the eye off the ball when I really needed it, not just the US but the whole world, with the artful dodge in Iraq. When I think that you could have sent 130 000 troops to Afghanistan to look for me instead of invading Iraq, I get all choked up. You really shouldn't have!

If I could make a tiny complaint, I was rather enjoying being badd-ass number one, and it was helping me a lot, so, now that you've got Saddam, could you start talking about me again? I mean, it's going to take a little doing, seeing as mad Saddam killed a million (neat trick with the figures!) of his own people, and the Base has only killed a few thousand foreigners. I know you don't count your Muslim and Arabs hits, but it would really help if you included those figures in our tally in order to make us public enemy number one again (save the darkest brush for me!) Anyway, I've been working on a few stunning ideas ideas that should help you help me, if that's what you're waiting for.

By the way, connecting me to Hussein may have been good politics for you, but I really don't want to be associated with that heretic. No one buys it in the Middle East, thankfully, or you could have made things very tough on me.

Anyway, thanks for diverting your attention these past few months. All the intelligence time and man-power you spent building the case for war really took the heat off and I can't thank you enough. I promise to give you a real doozy of a show next time. I'll try and do it just before your elections; you've been so great, I'd do anything to help.

In the meantime I'm hoping you'll go the extra yard and invade Syria. Of course, the real treat would be to go for Saudi Arabia. Then I could tell my folks I was right all along (not to mention getting rid of a rogue regime I've been repudiating myself for years)!

When I wanted war with the West, God sent you as his emissaries. Thank you George Bush, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, Doug Feith, Colin Powell (however unwilling), Condi Rice, John Bolton, Donny Rumsfeld and all the neo-cons and hangers-on in the US admin. Keep up the good work!

Allah akbar,

Ussama bin Laden.
