We are screwed if we CAN'T as a country
I was in class today writing again and (the class) started talking about Memorial Day and the young dead men that came from our community. 25 people directly from our naval base (sea bees) were in the newspaper with their dates of death. All except two died after George Bush landed on the aircraft carrier and said "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED". 22 young, minority, unhealthy men. From ages 19-26 died for the wealthy, old, white gentlemen that sent us to war. (At this time not one person in the House of Representatives had a family member of their own in the armed forces.) I'm not saying we shouldn't have gone to war that's up to you and your whole moral standing. But I’m saying as humans. We have not taught ourselves to rise against violence yet. It’s amazing how we can blast people off into space, and how I can talk to someone half way around the world or even in the next room by pushing buttons on a box not even having to yell. And how we can genetically engineer tomatoes to grow until their as big as your grandma's butt. But we still can't figure out how to solve our problems without violence. In other countries there are nuclear bombs a lot of them to. And it scares the fuck out of me knowing that at anytime, if someone doesn’t get what they want millions of people will die. If you saw the new Indiana Jones and the simulation test screen it shows a fake community being demolished. We will burn slowly and painfully, our children will melt, and our shadows will be burned into the ground. If we launch a nuclear bomb people will die in a way NO ONE should. 82% of Americans want our troops to come home. 82% we live in a democracy and 82% of the people want our troops back. Do you think the head haunchos give a fuck what we really think? And back to the violence it starts within us. PEACE. If we as Americans cannot start excepting each other for our differences, and if we don’t stop, picking the things out that make us so different we are fucked as a species. The human species is screwed if we can’t do that.

Subject: FW: Fwd: To be Republican

The Bergen Statesman September 11,2004

Things you have to believe to be a Republican today:

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with communist China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all humankind without regulation.

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's cocaine conviction is none of our business. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.

You support states' rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the right to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '70s & '80s is irrelevant.

Try to figure out why stem cell research is taboo, but creationism makes a lot of sense.

Feel free to pass this on. If you don't send it to at least 10 other people, we're likely to be stuck with Bush for 4 more years.

Friends don't let friends vote Republican
