I just got this forwarded to me: I was going to write you a letter about what a pathetic liar George W, Bush is -- but then I figured, hey, why waste your time telling you something you already know! You already know that his planned invasion of Iraq is a ruse meant to distract the public from the real issues, those issues being the following: 1. The number of people unemployed since he "took" office has risen by 35%. 2. We had a federal SURPLUS of $281 billion when he was inaugurated; today we have a DEFICIT of $157 billion. 3. TWO MILLION jobs have been eliminated since Bush began his occupation of the Oval Office. 4. The stock market is down 34% since January of 2001. 5. Another 1.4 million people now have NO health insurance, making it a total of over 41 million Americans who can't afford to get sick. 6. Only 13 corporate crooks out of HUNDREDS have been indicted, and none of them have been the close personal friends of Mr. Bush. THOSE are the real issues facing us, not some phony excuse for a war. But, like I said, you already know that. You know that Bush is lying through his smirk when he says Iraq has "weapons of mass destruction." He has not offered one shred of evidence to prove this. Not one! You know he is lying when he says that there is a "connection" between Saddam and bin Laden. Even members of his own administration have admitted that is not true. It's just one lie after another, and I applaud those three congressmen who went to Iraq this week and told it like it is -- and demanded that the sanctions which have already killed a half-million Iraqi children be ended. Sen. Trent Lott said "they should come home and keep their mouths shut." I say, we need more damn Democrats with that kind of courage and with mouths like that! Which brings me to the real point of this letter. The Democrats. I have never seen a more lame bunch of cowards and appeasers in my life. They are ready to bow down before Bush and give him what he wants to wage war against Iraq. This pathetic excuse of a party is an embarrassment to us all. The fact that they let Robert Torricelli run for re-election in New Jersey, knowing how dirty he was, shows just how capable they are of handing the Senate over to Bush and the Republicans come November. They have blown it over and over again, and lots of good people I know who keep putting their faith in the Democrats are just giving up -- and that is the worst thing to happen in a free society. What are we going to do? Left to their own devices, the Democrats will not only hand both the House and the Senate to the Republicans in November, they will guarantee that Bush gets his second undeserved term in 2004. We must not let that happen. This year's election was theirs for the taking. Just look at the state of the union Bush gave us: Bush cronies caught stealing from the corporate till, Bush and Cheney caught breaking the law in the '90s, the economy in the toilet, and Bush failing to do the only real job he had to do since 9/11: Get bin Laden! What a disgrace! Yet the Democrats could not even find enough candidates to offer a REAL challenge to the Republicans in nearly 200 House districts for the November 5th elections. What an appalling excuse of a party. OK, I know, there is not much we can do about this now. But we all need to get busy and ensure that this whole rotten system is rocked by the disgruntled millions come election day 2004. Otherwise, we have no right to complain. In the meantime, we must stop the Bush attack on Iraq. We must find out now, as W says, "who is wid us and who is agin us." I am asking each of you to please sign the petition I have posted here ([URL=http://www.michaelmoore.com/petitions/peacepledge/index.php]http://www.michaelmoore.com/petitions/peacepledge/index.php[/URL]) and on my website ([URL=http://www.michaelmoore.com]www.michaelmoore.com[/URL]) informing the Democrats that whoever amongst them votes for this war, we pledge NEVER to vote for them again. I will personally see that your on-line signatures are delivered to every member of Congress. I guarantee your voice will be heard loud and clear. Go to [URL=http://www.michaelmoore.com/petitions/peacepledge/index.php]http://www.michaelmoore.com/petitions/peacepledge/index.php[/URL] and sign the petition to the Democrats: "You're Either With Us Or You're Fired." Then let's figure out together what we can do to turn things around by 2004. Thanks for taking the time to do this. We have no other choice. Yours, Michael Moore

What an ass... I do believe the AR15.com Army should be mobilized to subjugate this liberal moron with a deluge of right-wing email. Get him, guys! Edited to add: I sent 4 emails to Moore so far, including a scathing comment in his petition to congress... I hope Gephart reads what I put in there!

Wow, the Democrats are scared? Why? I completely expect them to secure the Senate this election. If they get the house, I'll be bummed, but pessimist I am, I grant them continued control of Senate.

I have yet to see his first gun in a picture anywhere. Any fool can send $25 to the NRA & claim to be a "member" & thus their bullshit has "merit". Hell, I could join the NAACP or ACLU or NEA but that still would NEVER make me a liberal.

moore is an anti-gun weenie. I don't know if you guys remember his crap t.v. show called "tv nation" that ran on fox years ago. It was a "documentary" type show which only had one purpose: to make fun of non-socialists. The one episode called "Gun Night" was utter bullshit complete with the discredited "43 times more likely" quote.

Who is this friggin idiot? He sounds like another over educated yankee moron. Am I right or what.

I saw his new movie at the cannes festival this year. Let me tell you it is extreamly anti gun. He gets heston in an interview and makes him look really stupid. He gets the interview by tricking heston by saying he was an NRA member. I think he won camera De' ore this year which is a really big deal as they made a special exception for him (they dont allow documentaries). The name of the movie is bowling for coloumbine. Those of you that like south park are in for a little suprise when you see it also. The south park guys decide to make a nice cartoon about the nra and gun owners.

Michael Moore = Pud Licker

Actually, with the exception of his views on the Iraq thing, I agree with much of what he's saying. Think about it. The Democrats are a bunch of spineless wimps, and too many Republicans are in bed with white collar criminals and fast buck artists. Do I agree with his "solution"? Abosolutely not! However it wouldn't break my heart to see a bunch of the rascals, in both parties, thrown the hell out. The good news? It's always been that way, ever since the country was founded; and the country has still survived and prospered [:D] That's one of the greatest things about the United States. It keeps on surviving the best efforts of the political hacks and crooks to screw it up and take it over for their own selfish purposes.

Michael Moore is an anti-gun SOB. See his latest documentary about the US gun culture: http://[url]www.theunion.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?Site=TU&Date=20021002&Category=NEWS&ArtNo=110020013&Ref=AR[/url] This last weekend, I sat through the trailer of the movie at a local theater. I was fuming by the time it ended, and my wife had to tell me to calm down. The typical slimy stereotyping liberal movie characterizing gun owners as careless murderers.

Out of her list of "ails" that she blames bush for, I would like to know exactly why he is responsible? I understand that most people beleive that the sun will not come up if the president decides it won't, but he doesn't have any control over any of these things. Doesn't she understand the historical cyclical nature of our government?

Hell I signed the pledge. I don't have much intention of voting for many Dems anyway. I do on occasion. I added a choice message for them in the comment box.

No, in this case I completely agree with him. But he left out one important detail--who is really responsible for the shape we're suddenly in--8 years of the Clintonistas, anyone? anyone? Seriously, there is no difference between a big government Republican or a big government Democrat. The piddly issue of partisan politicans is all just a charade for the benefit of the masses. Ours is really a one-party system. Nothing would be different if Gore were president right now. Okay, we might not have gotten that miniscule, pathetic excuse for a tax cut for which we're supposed to be rejoicing. My state taxes have gone up, along with many extra little "fees" and "surcharges" (aka TAXES GODDAMNIT!!!) We're being eaten alive, and all the pols want to do is fight another meaningless war.

For those that aren't familiar with Michael Moore, he's an independent film director and industrial watchdog. His usual efforts are exposing corporate treachery and government waste of taxpayers dollars. His rise to fame was the result of a documentary he made of his attempts to interview the ceo of GM. He normally questions why a company can be laying off thousands because of poor business, yet upper managment all gets raises. That kind of stuff. I once heard him on the radio talking about the company that owns the makers of Payday candy bars. They started this big employee pride /incentive thing that resulted in the most productive, highest grossing year for the factory, then put it up for sale soon after. Their hopes were to make it attractive to buyers, when in fact it was more than worth keeping! He's like anyone else with a big mouth, opinions, and access to the media. For everything good he does, he cancels it out with something stupid.
