Dear Friends,

Just a short note from Paul...

Regardless of your political persuasion, I would like to share with you a letter I received, concerning the plight of a certain senior citizen.  It reads:

Dear Sir/Ma'am:

I am a senior citizen...

During the Clinton Administration I had an extremely good, top-paying job. I took numerous vacations and had several vacation homes.

Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change...for the worse. I lost my job. I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War. I lost my home. I even lost my health insurance.

As a matter of fact, I lost virtually everything and I became homeless. Adding insult to injury, when the
authorities found me living like an animal, instead of helping me, they arrested me.

I will do anything to insure President Bush's defeat in the next election. I will do anything that Senator Kerry wants to insure that a Democrat is back in the
White House come next year. Bush has to go.

I just thought you and your readers would like to know how one senior citizen views the Bush Administration.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.

Sadaam Hussein


Hi Amrik,
              my name is Charanpal Singh Bal, 25 years old and from Singapore. I find your website terribly disgusting and distateful. You are a homophobe. Your recent editorial was embarrasing for me to read, to say the least. To have made your pathetic lack of analytical ability less embarrasing, you could have mentioned what US forced did in Nicaragua for instance.

Do not take this too personally, ur experience wif the thugs of Boeing shld have showed u how capitalists and politicians come together to screw people over in their own immediate interest. Instead of working against these 'power elitisms' u have apparently joined one urself. I, for one who doesn't agree with ur politics, do not have at my disposal any strong-arm tactics [nor do I see any justification to use them.period.]. But I do have these words above and this is all. You suck.

Congrats on being given life membership to the Eisenhower Commision and that letter with Georgie inviting you for dinner was great too. Hope dinner was good.

(too) sincerely,
Charanpal S. Bal

 The reason you're not getting helped is because Republicans don't care
 about people like you. Sorry. Not only are you a minority, you're a
 casualty of their economic policies. Whatever griefs you have with
"liberals", I suggest that you rethink them. I found your website on
 accident believe it or not trying to find Boeing dental plan
 information. Yours is a labor dispute, not a political one. Your allies
 might not be who you think they are...
