Got this from Michael Moore's website



A Letter to All Who Voted for George W. Bush from Michael Moore

To All My Fellow Americans Who Voted for George W. Bush:

On this, the fourth anniversary of 9/11, I'm just curious, how does it feel?

How does it feel to know that the man you elected to lead us after we were attacked went ahead and put a guy in charge of FEMA whose main qualification was that he ran horse shows?

That's right. Horse shows.

I really want to know -- and I ask you this in all sincerity and with all due respect -- how do you feel about the utter contempt Mr. Bush has shown for your safety? C'mon, give me just a moment of honesty. Don't start ranting on about how this disaster in New Orleans was the fault of one of the poorest cities in America. Put aside your hatred of Democrats and liberals and anyone with the last name of Clinton. Just look me in the eye and tell me our President did the right thing after 9/11 by naming a horse show runner as the top man to protect us in case of an emergency or catastrophe.

I want you to put aside your self-affixed label of Republican/conservative/born-again/capitalist/ditto-head/right-winger and just talk to me as an American, on the common ground we both call America.

Are we safer now than before 9/11? When you learn that behind the horse show runner, the #2 and #3 men in charge of emergency preparedness have zero experience in emergency preparedness, do you think we are safer?

When you look at Michael Chertoff, the head of Homeland Security, a man with little experience in national security, do you feel secure?

When men who never served in the military and have never seen young men die in battle send our young people off to war, do you think they know how to conduct a war? Do they know what it means to have your legs blown off for a threat that was never there?

Do you really believe that turning over important government services to private corporations has resulted in better services for the people?

Why do you hate our federal government so much? You have voted for politicians for the past 25 years whose main goal has been to de-fund the federal government. Do you think that cutting federal programs like FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers has been good or bad for America? GOOD OR BAD?

With the nation's debt at an all-time high, do you think tax cuts for the rich are still a good idea? Will you give yours back so hundreds of thousands of homeless in New Orleans can have a home?

Do you believe in Jesus? Really? Didn't he say that we would be judged by how we treat the least among us? Hurricane Katrina came in and blew off the facade that we were a nation with liberty and justice for all. The wind howled and the water rose and what was revealed was that the poor in America shall be left to suffer and die while the President of the United States fiddles and tells them to eat cake.

That's not a joke. The day the hurricane hit and the levees broke, Mr. Bush, John McCain and their rich pals were stuffing themselves with cake. A full day after the levees broke (the same levees whose repair funding he had cut), Mr. Bush was playing a guitar some country singer gave him. All this while New Orleans sank under water.

It would take ANOTHER day before the President would do a flyover in his jumbo jet, peeking out the window at the misery 2500 feet below him as he flew back to his second home in DC. It would then be TWO MORE DAYS before a trickle of federal aid and troops would arrive. This was no seven minutes in a sitting trance while children read "My Pet Goat" to him. This was FOUR DAYS of doing nothing other than saying "Brownie (FEMA director Michael Brown), you're doing a heck of a job!"

My Republican friends, does it bother you that we are the laughing stock of the world?

And on this sacred day of remembrance, do you think we honor or shame those who died on 9/11/01? If we learned nothing and find ourselves today every bit as vulnerable and unprepared as we were on that bright sunny morning, then did the 3,000 die in vain?

Our vulnerability is not just about dealing with terrorists or natural disasters. We are vulnerable and unsafe because we allow one in eight Americans to live in horrible poverty. We accept an education system where one in six children never graduate and most of those who do can't string a coherent sentence together. The middle class can't pay the mortgage or the hospital bills and 45 million have no health coverage whatsoever.

Are we safe? Do you really feel safe? You can only move so far out and build so many gated communities before the fruit of what you've sown will be crashing through your walls and demanding retribution. Do you really want to wait until that happens? Or is it your hope that if they are left alone long enough to soil themselves and shoot themselves and drown in the filth that fills the street that maybe the problem will somehow go away?

I know you know better. You gave the country and the world a man who wasn't up for the job and all he does is hire people who aren't up for the job. You did this to us, to the world, to the people of New Orleans. Please fix it. Bush is yours. And you know, for our peace and safety and security, this has to be fixed. What do you propose?

I have an idea, and it isn't a horse show.

Yours,

Michael Moore

Let's see, the federal government spends more than $2,500,000,000,000 per year. But no matter how much it spends, it will never be enough for liberal asshats like Moore.

I thought he went on record as saying "There is no terrorist threat." So why then does he complain about being unprepared?


I swear, sometimes I think Michael Moore is a Republican spy, sent out to rile the liberals and feed them misinformation so that they stay liberal, needy, and clueless. Same with Cindy Sheehan. These people are so ridiculous it's sometimes hard to believe that they're serious.

I'd sure like to know what his solution to poverty is. There's been a war on poverty for 40 years and we've seen only more poverty. But I was told last week that it is a fallacy to expect that people who see the problems also should be pressured to formulate a solution.
Apparently, we accept an education system that turns out fat slobs who have no conception of healthy eating, and cannot string together a coherent thought.



"Horrible Poverty"?

Most of the "poor" people I've seen are well fed and live in apartments with indoor plumbing, electric lights, have TV sets, and video games.

I'm not saying that they aren't poor, or shouldn't aspire to better their lot. But there is very little dirt floor, shitting in a ditch, "horrible", poverty in the US.

Moore needs those people. Rational people don't buy his crap.

Plus, what has ruined the education system? A liberal teachers union whos goals are no accountability and growing bureaucracy.

I wonder if he ever stopped to think about that sentence..............Did Clinton ever serve in the military? Did he mind sending soldiers to Mogadishu? Did he wring his hands after the two Special Forces soldiers were killed by those subhumans and drug through the streets?............the answer is no, and he proves himself over and over to be a hypocrite

This is the shit I don't understand. It takes a while for what a president did to take effect and get noticed. Bill Clinton, the economic hero of the Democratic party owes a lot of his success to George HW Bush's decisions. And not to point fingers or anything, but the training and planning of 9/11 was planned well before Jr. took office. It takes a while for a decision to effect the country, you won't really know if he is a good president until years down the road.

ETA: we are the "laughing stock of the world" because we sacrifice lives to protect our way of life including freedom of speech and we still have ungrateful whiney ass pussies all over international news, it makes us look like we can't be taken seriously.

Shrub has left himself open to such criticism and mostly it is deserved. He has been a total disappointment AFAIC and I voted for him twice--Yeah, someone beat me with a stick.

This is our one shot at control of the Fed Gov't and we sell out to the socialists. Shrub is nothing but a RINO. Worst President since Carter and as I said in a previous thread, "he makes Clinton look good."

Dear Mr. Moore,

Does it bother you that your midnight snack consisted of more food than and of the hurrican victims ate the entire time that they were trapped? What were you doing while New Orleans was being flooded? Surely a man of your intellect and resources could have scrounged up some relief supplies and a couple of helicopters to help rescue people who were trapped in the area. I hear that you are planning a new "documentary" to expose the incompetence of President Bush during this crisis. Are you planning on donating all of the profits to the reconstruction of New Orleans? How many refugee families have you taken in? Will you at least donate a few of your T-shirts to be used as tents for the homeless victims of this tragedy?

I already know the answers to all of these questions. You are a hypocrite. You are also fat, unkempt and I'm sure that I wouldn't want to stand downwind from you.
