MoneyMess

Dear Citizen,

I normally send letters to the candidates but it in this case they are innocent. America you are the culprit. You, alone, are responsible for this widening gap between the rich and the poor. You constantly chose to elect people who grew up with a silver spoon AND a golden fork in their surgically altered lips and then you whine when they don’t understand your needs and your problems.

Of all the 2008 presidential candidates only about five of them have a net worth of less than a million dollars. Do you understand what this means. Only one percent of Americans have a net worth of 1 million dollars or more and yet we choose from within this elitist rank to lead the rest of the 99%.

Do you want the numbers?
When Edwards talks about poverty and goes does to New Orleans to launch his presidential campaign and then we find out that he has a net worth of over 30 million dollars (NOT CENTS) and spends $200 on a haircut whose fault is it when he becomes president and fills the state, health, agriculture department with his cronies.

We have done this before. The last president was from their ilk, he filled these positions with people who have never been in touch with humanity. People like Micheal Brown are put in charge of FEMA, Harriet Miers, Alberto Gonzales, Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney and the list goes on. It is one thing if they lost touch with humanity but when you went to prep schools since the age of 5, lived on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and have never been to public school or taken public transportation or been to a public hospital can we really seriously expect you to miraculously feel our pain and understand our needs.

I used to wonder why but just looking at the amount of money that these people have explains it all. It really does.

It is like expecting Paris Hilton to understand bargain shopping on the streets of Calcutta.
It is like expecting Donald Trump to get a 12 dollar hair cut at the local barbershop.
It is like expecting Rosie O'donnel to understand the word silence.
It is like expecting African politicians to understand the world ethics.
It is like expecting Ahmadinejad to appreciate an XBox 360

Seriously people.

Still not convinced?
Rudy is tied with Edwards at 30 mil. Here what makes it so crazy, a couple of years ago, 6 to be precise he told the divorce court that he only had $7,000 assets under his control. So, either he managed to perform a miracle and become a multimillionaire in 6 years or he lied to the judge.Chris Dodd is at 1.5 mil, even Obama whose father was a goat herder has the luck of the Irish and sits on about a million bucks.

Here is the scary one.
Romney the current republican leader in this race is at 350 mil
Can you understand such a sum?
Can you really expect him to understand your life? Your pain, your fears?

Forget this, I'm tired. Look we created this mess. I'll save the solution for my next letter tot he masses.

O by the way the others, I didn't forget them, they filed for an extension. Obviously they have sooooooo much money they need more than a month to count it all.

Nonsense.



We created this mess.
We did.


Realistically pissed

Mitt Romney's Immigration Ad

Mitt,

I am not picking on you. You have received two letters from me in the past two weeks and might be getting the idea that I spend my time nit picking your campaign strategy. Far from it, we have been friends since law school and so I feel that I would be remiss if I failed to caution some of your rash decisions.

There comes a point in the campaign when silence is a better reply. Everyone knows where you stand on immigration. There are three republicans who are polling at above 10 percent, McCain is from Arizona and was one of the crafters of the original immigration bill from last year, Guiliani is from New York, the melting point of the U.S., everyone knows were they stand when it comes to these issues. We have heard you in both debates speak about how immigration reform is actually amnesty.

Say it once, people hear you.
Say it twice, they take notice.
Say it three times and they start thinking what is wrong with him.

You run the risk of sounding foolish by creating an ad against a bill that has yet to be discussed on the floor of the House or the Senate. It is like you are trying to use fear before it is warranted. You have created a 60 second reply to a question that you refused to answer at a town hall meeting. I know you have the funds but remember the presidential election is still over seventeen months away.

Crying wolf in the middle of the day is foolish.
Crying wolf in the middle of the day, in the middle of the Atlantic is stupid.
Crying wolf in the middle of the day, in the middle of the Atlantic when sharks surround a ship is plumb loco and nonsensical.


I speak as a friend.

Wolfowitz Resigns

Dear Paul,


I know that this is a trying time for you. I have tried to stay out of this out of respect for Rachel but I can hold my silence no more. Don’t worry this letter is not going to cut you down to size; I believe that the opposition has already taken care of that. This letter is also not going to shine the microscope on your mistakes because the media has done an adequate job of that. Some might even say that they were more concerned about your lover than they were about African debt. So no, this letter neither berates nor admonishes you. Instead this is a letter of reflection. Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

Remember when we started thinking of invading Iraq. I remember in the days prior to September 11 how we thought of ways to ensnare Saddam only to have Osama confidently knock on our front door and punch us in the face. I remember as Deputy Secretary of Defense how you convinced Pres. Bush and the American people that the war in Iraq would be just. Many referred to you then as one of the framers of the Iraq war but in recent days they have all forgotten and kicked you to the curb.

Remember our undergrad. years at Cornell in the math department. Life was grand, the stuff we got into, all those proofs that we mysteriously solved. WOW, how time flies. The march with Martin Luther King Jr. in ’63 changed us a lot and we started going divergent paths.

I miss those innocent days, when we not defined by what we said, when we could say one thing and do another. We could talk about corruption and be corrupt; we could philosophize about the merits of capitalism and be socialist in our dealing with others. Maybe you thought those days still existed, is that it? Is that why you did something so stupid as to give Shaha a raise. I mean we always talked about nepotism and cronyism in Africa. You narrowly missed the bullet on the Iraq fiasco and now this.

I lied, I thought I could reminiscence without highlighting your flaws but honestly there are too many of them recently. I mean the whole thing with the CPA in Iraq, I could lay the current insurgent attacks at your feet but I won’t. Instead I will stop this letter and hope that my son can keep your daughter sane during the upcoming onslaught from the media.


Nostalgically yours,


Kafo

MItt Romney Words

Dear Mitt,

How is the weather up there in Masschusetts? How is Ann doing? I would ask you how you are doing but all I really have to do is look at the latest poll numbers. You are leading both McCain and Guiliani when it comes to raising funds. The Republican base loves your platform on the issues that matter to them. You look the part and it now seems that you have the backing of the Righteous Right. What more could a guy ask for?

Sense.

A guy could ask for a little bit for common sense. You see not only are the leading the pack when it comes to funds you are also ahead when it comes to gaffes. Did you know that? Well if you have temporary amnesia let me take the time to remind you of some of your recent mistakes. Let me start with the insane idea of bumper stickers.

First not France and Hillary = France. SERIOUSLY. You think that by picking on France you can force citizens to forget the Iraq war, gas prices, immigration reform, social and moral issues.

Telling a fox news host that you like a science fiction book titled “Battlefield Earth” is not exactly a strategy for the books. Were you trying to engender yourself with trekkies or the youth of our nations? Everyone who is into sci-fi knows that this is a terrible book. So not only did you mange to alienate the conservatives you also announced to the world your horrible taste in reading. I could talk about how Presidents are supposed to be presidential but I think you get the point.

In the hunt. On April 3 you said "I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I've been a hunter pretty much all my life."and then on April 5th you said "I'm not a big-game hunter. I've made that very clear. I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will. I began when I was 15 or so and I have hunted those kinds of varmints since then. More than two times." I mean this not only made people think that you suffered from amnesia and had a case of the flip floppies (John Kerry) it also gave journalists something to research. Do you really want people looking at your voting record when it comes to the Second Amendment.

I’ll stop now. I could go on and mention Good Hitler references and Free Cuba quotes but hopefully you get the idea.

Stop talking; Solomon says in the book of Proverbs that even a fool is thought to be wise when he is quiet. So please for the sake of the Righteous Right sanity keep those thoughts to yourself.

Persnicketyly yours

George Tenet's Book

Dear George,

I’ll make this short. I’m angry you do not get to receive the congressional honor of BS and then the next moment start pointing fingers.

No, not the next moment, you were too much of a sissy to stand up for what is right. Like seriously, as Director of the CIA, I expected more form you. You were a doormat for Rice and Rummy and now you think that by writing a tell-all book that you can rectify those mistakes.

You screwed up.
You gave the nation bad intelligence. You helped create this disaster so please get off your stupid horse and smell the roses. Right now no one really cares if it was you or Rice or Rummy or Wolfowitz. All we want to know right now is how to get out of this mess. Telling us how it began will not really solve the issue.

Here is what really really infuriates me. The book is not about the American people. No. It is not about laying blame at the feet of the guilty. No. it is not about rectify past wrongs. No. It is not about the thousands of dead American soldiers. No. It is not even about the ten of thousands damaged Iraqi lives. No. It is about money.

I’m out.

I hope that I don’t see you at the conference this weekend because I might just cause a scene. Why don’t I just put it this way. Do not come to the conference.


Once a member of your team

I'm Sprung

His message said I miss you and i got all gaga

Mii, who prides herself on being level headed has spent over 2 hours trying to find a way to stay in Indy. I hate snow, but for some reason unbeknownst to my wonderful brain, my brain (the other half i seldom use) is going to give up a snowless existence.
