LETTER: Bush Took My Job, Killed My Sons

Posted on 01/24/2004 8:17:13 PM PST by decimalsanddollars

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!

Regards,

Saddam Hussein

You shouldn't do that! I'd almost had a heart attack from the anger welling up in me before I glanced down to the signature!

Read the signature.

I read the first part and was ready to call for a Viking Kitty strike. Then I hit the last line.

Good grief, it was a joke. Look at the signature.

Except for the signature, it reads like some insane liberalism leaking out of DU. I suspected it was a joke even before I got to the end, because it didn't mention "Cheney" or "Haliburton".

Omit the signature, and it would gather hundreds of "right on, brothers" at DU. Sign it "Saddam Hussein", and it would still get dozens.
