Subject: news in The Netherlands
On the 20.00 h news here in The Netherlands yesterday,
they showed a bunch of Republican-financed shouters
harrassing Democratic lawmakers that were arguing
the case for the Health Care Reform, the mob screaming their
heads off to prevent any normal discussion about
the Reform taking place.
Then they showed some Regurgican-members of Congress
claiming that "Obama's health care will force you to
euthanise your elderly parents", and then a statement
from that lying religio-nut triple A no-brain Palin claiming that
the Health Care Reform will force people that
have a baby on the way with Down syndrome to come before an
"Obama- tribunal" that would decide whether or
not the baby would be allowed to be born. She ended her statement
saying that the Health Care Reform is "plain
I felt sick to my stomach from this. Isn't it
illegal to knowingly and willingly lie like this? Isn't that called slander?
Couldn't a (civil) lawsuit be filed against these
practices and these people? And also, can you, being from Oklahoma,
which from your descriptions I consider a perfect
setting to study the life cycle of the Republican species in the wild,
explain how the fuck they develop into such misinformed,
What do they teach kids at schools there?
Or is this something that people are being taught
by their parents / family / peer pressure?
Keep up the great work, in my opinion you and
Mr. Obama are the best PR your nation can have,
and it's needed because with stuff like that
on the news and remembering the WPE one could think
that Americans are just plain batshit crazy…Thanks!

The center of America is full of ignorant people.
I have this theory: People who live in Seattle, Portland, San
Fran, LA, Boston, New York, Miami etc
have seen and met people from other countries and cultures. They
are more accepting of Blacks, gays,
foreigners etc but that open-minded attitude never made it as far inland
as Oklahoma or Kansas.
Obama was right in the campaign when he said middle America tends to
stick with guns and God.
The reason is they are scared and they need someone to hold their hand
and say, "It'll be all right."
These ignorant, racist bigots are usually nice people - if you're white.
But their minds are closed and anyone who tries to educate them is
The worst part is they're so proud that they're stupid.
They ridicule places like New York, if you can believe that.
Each election, they run Rethug commercials here saying,
"We're not like New York - we have Oklahoma
values," which means "Screw the niggers."
Bush and Palin are perfect examples - they are extremely proud
of their ignorance.
Bush used to brag, "I make decisions by the
seat-of-my-pants," which is probably a
to you but it means, "Fuck
education, I make decisions based on my feelings" and that's
how America fell.
McCain is another one. He's from the Grand Canyon state, Arizona.
Everyone with a brain knows the Grand Canyon is like 17 millions years
McCain knows this, but to get endorsed by the religiously insane, he
"The Grand Canyon is only 3,000 years old
and back then people rode dinosaurs to church."
In America, to win the Rethug primaries, you have to either be
super-stupid or act super-stupid.
These are the people who are outraged at "that
illegal Kenyan" in the White House.
How could a once-great country surrender to religious insanity?
