Email received on US hypocrisy:
loves you and shares your hatred of homosexuals and liberals. Greed and usury
are no longer a sin.
2. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed
him, a bad guy when Bush's Daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush
had to reinforce U.S. and British hegemony over the oil rich Middle
3. Trade with Cuba is wrong because that country is ran by a Communist dictator who is loved by
the masses, but trade with Pakistan, Nigeria, Uzbekistan run by dictators with horrible human rights record, hated by
the masses, this is in our national interest.
4. The United States should get out of the United Nations, that way we won’t have to repeated use our security counsel veto—which
we have done more times than all the other countries combined.
5. Better to have half our people go without medical coverage than adopt a socialist plan, such as in Canada, which they run at half the price and covers everyone. The rest
of the developed world must be nuts to have socialized medicine.
6. The best
way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches, while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay. If they don’t like, when their stint is over, they can work for Blackwater in
Iraq and receive 10 times the pay.
If sex education is kept out of kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex. Just
tell them don’t.
8. A good way to fight terrorism is to invade
an Arab country with lots of oil that didn’t support terrorists, and also for us to side with Israel. The Moslem zealots will understand.
How to blow a regime change: build permanent U.S. bases throughout their country,
deny their newly elected government real power, disband their military but allow them to keep their arms, take their oil revenues
and park them in the U.S., permit our contractors to import cheap labor from Pakistan and elsewhere, leave their utilities
and hospitals in shambles, and institute neoliberal (IMF) policies which have ruined their banking and manufacturing base,
and has greatly reduced salaries.
warming and the evolution of species is junk science, but the book of Genesis’s explanation of creation ought to be
taught in science classes
11. A president
deceptive statements about a one-time foundling of his penis by a female aid is an impeachable offense, but a president repeated
lying to the public and Congress about weapons of mass destruction for to justify a war in which millions (including Iraqis)
die is OK for a 'Decider'.
12. Our Supreme Court justices believe that it does not violate the Bill of Rights for police
to search without a warranty vehicles, homes, bank records, emails, and phone conversations; hold people without bail even
when they are not a flight risk; remove from judicial review the grand jury proceedings; permit a person to be tried twice
for the same crime if the charges are different; for military prison guards to torture our citizens, immigrants, and visitors
if they are housed in our prison in Cuba; and for employers to sample our bodily fluids for drug usage.
The public has a right to know about Bill’s sex life, but Dick Chaney’s energy planning meetings with Enron
and others is none of our business.
14. The media content is decided by 5 global corporations who both slant
the content and deliberately lie. The airwaves are no longer a public trust, because now the right
of ownership comes first, so decided the Supreme Court during Reagan’s administration.
He challenged the fair-and-balanced content requirement, and won.
By 'Executive Privilege' and crony appointments the Republican President can undermine environmental, food safety, product
safety, labor, and drug safety laws.
The liberal-biased corporate press (so we are told repeatedly) had unendingly criticized Bill & Hillary Clinton in the
90s, but realizes that Bush can do no major wrongs.
17. It is alright for politicians to receive funds from the very interests whom their legislation will affect. It is also alright for Congressmen to trade on insider information.
The free market system is the best of all possible, when all the restrictions are removed.
We don’t need pension plans or medical insurance paid for by employers.
Employees will work harder when they are competing with workers in China, Mexico, and India, therefore tariffs
and unions are unnecessary. Banks and financial institutions know best how to
make a profit, therefore regulations are unnecessary. Drug companies only need
to show that their medication is slightly better than a placebo for to get FDA approval.
Then they can spend billions marketing the drug as they see fit. And the
current depression is a result of government meddling with the market place.
19. Our citizens are the best in informed in the world, because they get nearly all their information from Fox,
MSN, and CNN news. We have an informed voting
public. Besides, god is on our side.
