UP IN SMOKE...A letter to Mr.Bush and the MSM about Our Children's Need for Health Insurance




*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
Dear Mr.Bush,
We know you care about issues that make You look "good", or exploit your sense of Righteousness. We know that you say you hear Voices from God giving you Guidance ( aka the Voices In Your Head or the whisper of Jim Beam).We know that you like those photo opportunities with children, like the little white TBall Players they drag to the Whitehouse Every Spring. Or let us not forget the Children of Human Shield Elementary In Florida that you were reading the Goat Book on Sept 11,2001. My you cared so much about them that you stayed a full 7 minutes after our Country had been Attacked and you even made your first heartfelt ( pantspissing /witless) speech to the masses, in front of those same poor photo-op children .We know that you care so much about children that you susposedly say you gave up The Drink when your own Children were small, as you like to tell large crowds with short memories.We know that you don't give a shit about the current known 9 MILLION Uninsured Children in this Country, or the 20 million working class families that have those children. We know that if the Parents are uninsured that is their fault for not being responsible, that is what you said last week when you were in Cleveland. ( That was the very same speech you were busy terramongering and fearmongering, in case you forget, you said the Terrorists were coming to get Our CHildren.)

[[ See the Funny Thing is that after that "Speech" , I even then thought So OUR Children are not worth Protecting or Taking Care of , but Mr.Bush wants us to be very scared of Someone Else Hurting Them. We know that Mr.Bush didn't want us to think HE is the Bogeyman trying to hurt OUR Children. But now we know that In all of His alcohol addled Imperial Wisdom he plans to VETO a Bill that would provide Coverage for the Children of this Country, MILLIONS of Children. There are short little below-the-fold articles in the Sunday papers, but god-forbid NO Big Embarrassing stories on such an issue, hence I don't even have any links for you.]]

And Mr.Bush , We Know that you have Friends, and that Your Friends NEED Your Help, more than Our Children. That's right, I mean we know it would be so Unfair for the Cigarette Companies to suffer because of you wanting to help Our Children get the Health Care Coverage They Need and Deserve.We know that 2nd hand Smoke only causes Asthma and Lung Cancer, but Joe Camel taught us how much they too love the Children.We know that taxing Cigarette companies in the end would have horrible painful effects for the Cigarette Companies, and that you could not watch such suffering. (Your "empathy" for Scooter taught us that just this month). We know that you know you ONLY Veto Bills that affect Life, so we know you will Kill this Bill that would have saved Millions of Lives. We know the faces of these Children will not haunt your sleep, because the Dead and Dying will not comfort your delusional dreams of grandeur.

What would you do Mr.Bush if Millions of Parents and Moms and Dads came to DC and said that We Know Our Children Matter ? And that we don't want them Dead HERE or in Iraq ? Because Mr.Bush, we are Parents and we are Sick and Tired of you taking Care of Your Big Corporate Friends and Killing and Hurting the Children of the United States and the World. 9 Million Children Matter. And we know that when you sign That Veto, that their chances for a stable Healthy Future will merely go Up in Smoke, Every Child Left Behind. 9 Million Children.

We Know when You sign the Veto for Health Insurance for 9 Million Children we may as well start buying cemetary plots for those Children , OUR CHILDREN. So see those photos, we will save them for their Obituary articles. maybe you could just start choosing which children Live and which die, just look at the photos and Choose. You are the Great Decider, so go ahead and Choose, after all they are just Children. ( They will never know that you signed their Lives away).

ADDENDUM: A short note to the MSM, instead of covering Paris Hiltons Skinny Ass Jail Term, or some other drivel start Covering what matters. CNN Shame on you for deriding Micheal Moore for attempting to investigate and bring light to Our Health Care Crisis that is effecting more than 47 million people. He was Right, you FUBARED the Iraq War Coverage From DAY One, and you even have failed Basic Human Stories at Home. Do Something Right, Cover a story that Effects Our Greatest Resource. Our Greatest Resource in this World is NOT Corporate Interests or OIL, it is OUR CHILDREN.

Excellent post and so very true of a leader of lust for oil, yet neglects the children in the country he supposedly governs.

dada said...

OMG Enigma...you weren't on that canvas longer than the count of two before you bounced up totally renewed! Way to go!

What's funny is this very same issue slapped me in the face when I first opened up the computer this morning, making it another morning where I planned to blog about something "frivolous," fun, like we used to enjoy before we all got "terra" filled by these assholes.

Anyway, so I blogged about this very same story, but oh my god, what a much, much better job you did. You kicked ass! Thank you so much E. Here's the computer link link to the one that set me off online.

Peacechick Mary said...

Great post E4E! This makes me so angry. I would, if I could, kick his sorry ass up and down Pennsylvania avenue. The man is a demented, ruthless beast.

Enigma4Ever:
After reading your post, I heard again today the song "Walking to Washington" by Meridian Green when i visited http://marchofthepeople.org and was again very impressed. I have kept thinking about the sentiment expressed there and in your post (What would you do Mr.Bush if Millions of Parents and Moms and Dads came to DC and said that We Know Our Children Matter ? And that we don't want them Dead HERE or in Iraq ?) as i have visited many other sites and blogs and keep seeing the questions expressed: When? How much more will it take? When are we going to take action.

I have no musical intrument talent but my desire to join the voices being raised every where i turn. I just wrote this today and if you, or anyone you know, might have some spare notes and inclinations laying around that somehow might mesh with these words, you are welcome to them. I call them:

What Day

What day do we the people take back our country...
what day do we the people occupy DC...
what day do we the people lose our apathy.

what day do we the people say no more fear-no more hatred...
what day do we the people chant no more war-not one more dead...
what day do we the people turn 98/2 percent on its head.

What day do we the people demand our 'leaders' tell no more lies...
What day do we the people forbid this war, no one else dies...
What day do we the people insist that equality rises.

What day do we the people restore to hope it's voice...
what day do we the people give wings to our love and joys...
what day do we the people do we finally deploy.

Today do we the people shining hearts all, put down our sorrow...
Today do we the people fiercely knowing down to our marrow...
Today do we the people courageously take back tomorrow.

E, I've never heard FUBARed used that way (as a verb, an action verb at that), but I like it!

balloflight, I don't think it needs music. It's perfect as is!

Aaron A. said...

Individual states shouldn't be trying to deal with this issue. It shouldn't have got this bad.

enigma4ever said...

Aaron: In 2009, when this hellhole administration is over- that will determine how BAD it really is...but you are right it should NEVER have gotten this bad...period.

Dk: yup , after Bush we now can use it as a verb...he should be so proud.

Aballoflight: You really have written up a good one- and yes, I really wish I knew someone that did play music , write music...but like DK said it really is great as it is....

Peacechick: I would gladly help you kick his sorry little ass up and down the Ave.

Dada: yup...I was going to do nice SoulFood pieces- but then I was furious when I read the news online at 5am, and so I had to write Something....thanks for link...

Larry: yup, when men lust for Oil that is ALL they can see....well, past the dollar signs...

vanillabirdies said...

Jim Beam and Nose Candy have had quite an influence on the man that somehow represents America.

You know, we've gotta find something else for Bush to represent.

Probably something with a long warning label.

Tina said...

Now now E... dontcha know that the Republican love for children begins at the moment of ejaculation and ends at the moment the kid pops out of the uterus? Sheesh... unless of course, you're the Mark Foley variety of Republican.... then.....

Just another effort to protect his buddies in the 'health care' industry. He's fiercely loyal to them as pays his bills for him.

Coffee Messiah said...

Nicely stated, although anything that has to do with the US, they'll never deal with.

Remember, it's been 2 yrs since Katrina and what does that look like?
