Tired of being lied to by Bush administration

Letter to the editor

Posted: Sunday, February 22, 2004

I think it's possible Fidel Castro has taken to watching our late-night heroes, the comics who can say nasty things about our leaders and get away with it, well, because some of the baser comments are stingingly true.

The trade embargo has most definitely not worked, Bush can't debate a Cuban ninth-grader, the war on poverty is forgotten, the war on drugs was lost until 9/11, and the war on terrorism probably wouldn't be being fought if oil didn't burn.

I don't know about you, but I don't want Bush worrying about a free Cuba, I want him to backtrack until we have a free America. I was frustrated recently over a personal banking matter, (I wasn't getting my way), the bank manager invoked 9/11 and the Patriot Act as the reason I wasn't getting my way. I'm just stubborn enough that when I got home I printed out the Patriot Act, and read the whole thing. I knew it was a scary document, but I didn't know it was that scary.

I'm tired of being lied to by this administration; if you believe the Bush administration's lies about taking Saddam out because he wasn't nice to his own people, then can you say Rwanda?
