a question that no one I know seems to be able to answer to my satisfaction
is George W. Bush so popular with veterans?"
mean, when I was in the Marine corps and being shot at, he was a
draft dodging coward and a hypocrite to boot, if you believe
what he has to say about his opinion on the Vietnam war.
far as I have been able to find out there is not a single person that
ever remembers flying with him in the National Guard He completed
his guard service in Alabama while living in Cambridge
with never a show up and yet most vets and current service
people I know love him to death?
well most of my fellows jar heads and they weren't particularly sophisticated
but they were pretty good at weeding out the weak, and the phony's
or if not weeding them out, at least recognizing them
and here they are now (it seems) I mean it is always possible
that it is just a big managed pr scam sucking it in for
this chicken drug sucking unaccomplished coattail riding
moron? go figure Al Gore as inarticulate as protoplasm
comes hated the war didn't have to go and enlisted and went
(and the story I heard) was given a CIB but doesn't wear it because
he thinks he doesn't' deserve it and was trashed by veterans
I know that they have been dumbing down the schools since I quit
high school but can they be that dumb? Can vets and soldiers
be dumber than lice?

A Reply from John, an Airline Pilot and Former Air National Guard
Just a few comments on the
letter from "Jerry". First off, President Bush was not a draft dodger.
President Clinton was. President Bush served his country in the National
Guard as a fighter pilot. I am both a veteran from active duty and
the National Guard, and I want to point out that there are quite
a few soldiers in the Guard who are very proud (and have every right
to be) of their Guard service. The President served in the Texas
Air National Guard. While I did not know him, I have talked
with many former Air Guard pilots (as an airline pilot, these are people
I come into contact with on a daily basis) who served the same time
he did. They knew who he was. Many critics mention how he didn't
finish his tour. His unit was transitioning to a new aircraft
that would've required expensive schooling. The Air Force offered
him the chance to either get out a little early (since he was due to get
out in a few months), or extend his tour for a number of years.
He chose to get out early. This sort of thing happens all the time
in these types of jobs. The military doesn't want to spend
the money training someone on a new system if that individual is going
to separate very shortly thereafter.
As far as Al Gore is
concerned, he enlisted in the army as a journalist. He was stationed
in Alabama. (Ft. McClellan). His enlistment was timed perfectly
with his father's bid for reelection. His father was known as a very
liberal, anti-Vietnam War politician in a very conservative state.
It was thought that young Al in uniform would help win some votes.
(Al did accompany his father throughout most of the campaign).
When his father was defeated, Al was ordered (didn't volunteer) to Vietnam,
where he served around 6 months or so. As far as his being awarded
the CIB, that is strictly an army infantry award. To date, I know
of no one! that has been awarded the CIB that was not infantry qualified
at the time of the award. If Al was given the coveted award
as a journalist, I would think that there would be more said about
Just some thoughts.
Mr. Bush became President, I said who ever gets this next term in office
will have the toughest presidency of any President, ever! Now we
can see that this is true. President Bush has and will have a tough
time and I don't think any man is better qualified to do the job and he
has shown us that he is for all Americans and has proven that he can handle
the job better than anyone thought possible. We all need to give
him all of our support and thanks. But keep reading below and look
at the links too. These have even surprised me. There is one thing
that President Bush recently said on May 2007, speaking of terrorist, "They only
have to be right once, We have to be right One Hundred Percent of the time.

- Behind the Iran-Contra Affair
- George W. Bush: Son Also Rises
This episode of Biography from the A&E network was produced in 1999,
and while it offers a look at the life of George W. Bush, the narrative
ends before the 2000 presidential campaign began. As Bush's father served
as president and his grandfather was a U.S. senator from Connecticut,
the role of Bush family, which wielded influence in banking as well as
politics, is explored. A childhood spent in Texas (after his birth in Connecticut)
is described, and people who knew George W. as a child and later as a teenager
at an exclusive New England prep school recall him for having a sense
of humor and sociable demeanor. His life as a fraternity president at Yale
is mentioned, and there are passing references to a hazing scandal
and "partying." But there really is little controversy raised by this program
beyond later noting that as an adult "years of partying were beginning
to take their toll." Bush himself appears on camera and talks cheerfully
about giving up drinking as he entered his 40s. Texas journalists, including
Molly Ivins and Bush biographer Bill Minutaglio, appear to speak
about Bush's entry into politics and his run for the Texas statehouse.
Viewers seeking a generally upbeat overview of Bush's life before running
for president will no doubt enjoy this program, though it's fair to note
that it breaks little new ground. --Robert J. McNamara

The United States of oil
No administration has ever
been more in bed with the energy industry -- but does that mean Big Oil is
calling Bush's shots? First of two parts.
By Damien Cave
Nov. 19, 2001 |
The Bush administration's
ties to oil and gas are as deep as an offshore well. President George W. Bush's
family has been running oil companies since 1950. Vice President Dick Cheney
spent the late '90s as CEO of Halliburton, the world's largest oil services
company. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice sat on the
board of Chevron, which graced a tanker with her name. Commerce Secretary
Donald Evans was the CEO of Tom Brown Inc. -- a natural gas company with fields
in Texas, Colorado and Wyoming -- for more than a decade.
Oil and the Bush Administration
by Mark J. Palmer Earth Island Journal, Autumn 2002
Last year, Vice President Dick Cheney hosted a series of meetings with a group
of energy industry representatives and lobbyists. From these meetings, the Bush
administration unveiled a controversial National Energy Plan, which consisted
chiefly of 33 billion in public subsidies and tax cuts for the oil, coal, and
nuclear power industries, as well as provisions to open up the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge for industrial oil drilling.
One participant was grudgingly revealed by Cheney early on: Former Enron CEO and
George W Bush's most generous campaign contributor, Kenneth Lay Cheney admitted
that he and/or his staff met at least six times with Lay on energy policy
issues. Congress member Henry Waxman (D-CA) subsequently identified 17 different
provisions of the Bush National Energy Plan bill that would have benefited
Enron. At least one Executive Order on energy policy was virtually identical to
draft proposals submitted by the American Petroleum Institute.
This is a good page to show who's who in the Bush Oil connections.
The National Enquirer OnLine
The Enron Corporation gave the Taliban millions of dollars in a no-holds-barred
bid to strike a deal for an energy pipeline in Afghanistan -- wile the Taliban
were already sheltering terror kingpin Osama Bin Laden!
Enron executives even met with Taliban officials in Texas, where they were given
the red-carpet treatment and promised a fortune if the deal went through.
Bush's War for Oil
Many progressives believe Bush invaded Iraq to steal its oil. My candidate
in the 2004 primaries - Dennis Kucinich - had the guts to say it on Meet The
Press in February 2003, which freaked out war whores like Richard Perle and
. Kucinich was challenged by Tim Russert to prove that oil
was the basis for Bush's war:
"I base that on the fact that there is 5 trillion worth of oil above
and in the ground in Iraq, that individuals involved in the
administration have been involved in the oil industry, that the oil
industry would certainly benefit from having the administration control
Iraq, and that the fact is that, since no other case has been made to go
to war against Iraq ... oil represents the strongest incentive."
George Bush likes to present himself as a straight-talking, regular guy.
But it's an act -- regular guys don't go to Andover Prep, Yale and Harvard
Business School, and straight-talking guys don't pretend to be regular guys
after growing up in one of the most privileged homes in world history. Not
only was Bush's dad president, his grandpa was a U.S. Senator and wealthy
Wall Street banker, and his mom's blueblood family owned (among other
things) the estate in Maine that Bush still hangs out at.
From the Webmaster: I would believe that
this was a war on terror and all of the above was just anti-Bush propaganda
but WHY DID THE OIL COMPANIES MAKE RECORD PROFITS DURING THE TIME OF
NATIONAL EMERGENCY? WHY? If this happened during World War 2, those
oil companies would be on the chopping block, but instead, our people are on
the chopping block.
How did all this come about to begin with.
It's because of the un-constitutional practice of campaign funding. As
soon as we had campaign funding, it allowed a person to gain access to
acquiring public office through contributions and not on their personal merit
alone. Looking at the debates several elections ago. Ross Perot and
Ralph Nader were not even allowed to attend the debates. This shows
that the Government took control over our government, the government by the people.
Former President Clinton said that "This is our debate, not theirs."
No! It's not their debate, it's our debate, the debate that belongs to
the people of the United States not to the politicians.
Our country was formed by and for the People of the United States not the
good old boys that are now placed into office by huge corporate or special
interest group campaign funding and
selective media coverage. This appears to be an illegal government because it
does not represent the people.
To fix this problem, all campaign funding should all go to a central fund
where all qualified candidates can equally draw from the fund and the media
should allow equal time on equal programs. An equal funding and media coverage would ensure that a
politician would be elected on their merit alone, not on the wishes of huge
corporations or special interest groups who want special favors by giving enormous campaign funding
This is the truth. This is what a true Democracy really means.
