Thank god for the new media

Dear George:

Thank you for hard work and determination during these last 4 trying years. To sum it all up it in one sentence that is an open ended question that LIBERALS don't want to face or remember.

Why has the mainstream media decided not to show clips from 9/11 anymore? They can bitch all they want about Fox News but the truth is that Fox at their best get 2-3 million viewers a night vs. the big 3 (CNN is irrelevant any more) they get avg. of 22-23 million.

Why during this war on terror does the media push us away from it when it is the central focus of everything we are involved in.

Thank god for the new media and new ideas of the Republican Party.

p.s. As I stare down at my paycheck today and see the $68 taken out every week for social security. Thank you for trying to make sure that money will be there when I retire. Hopefully in a private account where I will get a better return and I will either own the nest egg or my family will access it.

Thank you

Not the right thing to do

Dear President Bush:

I have heard that you want to cut out social security, that’s not the right thing to do. I draw disability. I have fibromyalgia and restless syndrome and some other health problems that keep me from working, I’m not one to take advantage of it, and I only get $599.00 a month and $23.00 in food stamps. Have you ever tried to live on $23.00 a month, I live in government housing, I’m not married and never will be. People are crazy out in this world, I stat to my self. It’s just me and my cocker spaniel he is my companion. I have been married twice.

It took 2 years to get my disability and my apartment I had to live where ever. Thank god I have a stable place. I can’t stand on my legs for a long length of time. It seems to all be in my back and legs and now it’s moving down in my right arm. It’s severe pain. Have you ever tried living on $599.00 a month? Please help people like me. I can’t sit at my computer for a long length of time, my back and my neck goes to hurting. This is supposed to be the richest country in the world, but as it’s starting to look it’s the poorest. Our government doesn’t help the homeless, and I know how that feels.

Please help getting our troops home - they were fighting before our troops ever went over there, that’s all them people know, I think they believe in another god. Not the one we worship over in the states here. There are too many people dying these days. I am Baptist, and if wasn’t for God I wouldn’t be where I’m at now. I pray everyday and every night, thank God he grants my prayers.

Please don’t take my pay away from me or my apartment. That’s all I have to live on. Please just help us all, we need your help. I’m not trying to be ugly; we just need your help. Thank for answering prays. I wish I was rich and then I wouldn’t have to depend on the government. Please just sit and think about what said. Thank you for reading this letter.
