"My Fellow Americans....."
How I remember
Franklin Delano Roosevelt using those words to endear an
entire nation and gain the trust of every person in this
country. Today, when and if we hear those words most
Americans cringe with the silent thought oh no, here comes
some more fetid fertilizer.....
How many of you are
happy about paying the sky high FUEL Prices that are
appearing on pumps from one end of this great nation to
Wanna BET that if....
the Republican Controlled Congress had been performing their
duties properly for the past eight years instead of doing
everything in their power to thwart, subvert, prosecute,
persecute and/or otherwise destroy the Democratic Clinton
Presidency, among other blunders,the gas prices might not be soaring?
Republican Big Oil Mongers
I'm wondering if the
member nations of OPEC really think they are getting away
with something? They'd better ponder what they are
doing with the jacked up pricing. The Republicans were
in control of the government and yet because they were so
pre-occupied with pursuing Clinton that they never saw the
gouge coming. Instead, the poor working stiff of this
country had to get the rude awakening at the gas pumps and
home heating fuel oil deliveries. Nice job there Mr.
Republican House and Senator Snow job.
Or, should we perhaps
look into how many big name Republicans are invested in
Oil? Especially in Texas. Maybe there is more to
the rise in prices of fossil fuel products than just an
artificial shortage induced by OPEC.
The OPEC nations and
the Republican Party will have to go a long, long way to win
back my vote of confidence.... Instead of allowing this
situation to persist this nation should NATIONALIZE our
fossil fuel resources and tell OPEC to go fly a kite!
We saved their collective raghead butts re: Desert Storm...
but now they want to "stick it to those decadent
American Devils". Well so be it! To the
Devil with them, one and all.
I, for one, am tired
of helping with my tax dollars, those nations who... once
they are protected, subsidized, up and running, turn on a
dime and spit at us. It is time the USA became a
dominant world power in the fuel area also. Perhaps
when the newly elected Democratic Gore Administration is in
office we shall see the greedy OPEC leaders taken down a peg
or, few dozen pegs.
Opportunity turned to Rust!
Either he is truly a Boy Governor or, his advisors and
planners are nitwits. Consider this. His One-Florida Plan which is, in
our editorial opinion, designed to methodically eliminate
Affirmative Action is not for this State or Nation. Not now,
One-Florida has hit
the nation hard, right in the face. First, "JEB"
Bush quietly appoints his campaign managing buddy and
heaviest contributor.. Jacksonville powerhouse power broker,
Tom Petway to the Chairmanship of the Florida
State Board of Regents... then that Board votes approval
of One-Florida a scant three months later.
Smell the rotten
fish yet? Ok, so we are not in Denmark.. but it STILL stinks to the high heavens!
Where?!? Florida is now MORE socially and racially
divided than it was in 1960!!
We saw demonstrators
and marchers, better than 45,000
strong, march on Tallahassee, the State's
capitol, this past week. Along with sit-ins in the
Governor's offices and candlelight vigils and singing at the
Governor's Mansion. Not one person participating had
or has a kind word for the Bush Boys.... better known in
this state as the Bushwhackers!
Bush Brothers - Truly a political disaster fully in the
Jews, Catholics and Blacks have been betrayed" was the
cry heard across the State.
Its quite evident that
Bush's plan was not very well thought out.
Take a look at this
and give it some thought... Had "Jeb" placed the
One-Florida Plan on a voter referendum ballot or, any ballot
in November, the amount of voter turnout would have easily
tripled with those voters known as the "silent
majority". Which are comprised mostly of those who
would love to see an end to Affirmative Action.
At the same time,
since they were out voting, it stands to reason they'd also
cast their votes in the Presidential Race.... since a Bush
was affording them an opportunity to do away with
affirmative action one could logically conclude that many,
many voters would also vote for a Bush... George W.
But now, with the
opposition vote all fired up by "JEB" Bush over
the Ramrodded Dictatorial manner in which he implemented
One-Florida... The entire South... not just Florida - the
opposition vote, all races and creeds, are going to clobber
a Bush... G.W. Bush, Jeb's Brother George is in for a very
rough go and I might add could easily loose the election due
to the Huey Long-like behavior of
"Jeb"... Yep... "Jeb's" Strategists and
planners are in a deep sleep. By the way, anybody know
where Reggie Brown was during all this "high level
Al Gore owes
"Jeb" a real thank you... "Jeb" has done
more to harm G.W. Bush's campaign than Gore can possibly
The whole thing
sorta reminds one of the "rush to defend" one sees
when a fire ant mound is kicked open... Jeb has kicked
open one heck of a mound with his force feeding of
