Bill Sykes' Newsletter from America.
(October 2005)

An ex-Brit gives his views-(without fear or favor)---of the American Scene

The last word:
Naive TextAs this is meant to be the final edition of this newsletter, (See October 2005 edition Part B), I cannot let the opportunity go by to once again put my thoughts on paper as to what I think of this President and his Administration.
First and foremost I must mention that I consider the American people to be generous to a fault, but unfortunately they are more than a little naïve in the field of politics and foreign policy and have the unfortunate habit of allowing themselves to be mislead, (conned), by big money interests into voting for the most unlikely person to be President of this great country.

Many Americans have the audacity to believe that the American way of life is the only way of life and is an ultimate demonstration of what the people of this world should imitate and adopt. This has been aptly apparent during the reign of this President in his attempts to convert the ever-growing race of Muslim people into accepting subservient democratic ideals. President Bush has demonstrated an arrogance of purpose, a poor grasp of the English language, a less than intelligent approach to the democratic ideals and workings of local and foreign governments, and apparently has been judged by many people worldwide to have a mental capacity comparable with that of our forebears the early primitive Neanderthal humans.
I would suggest that the time has come for this President, and a number of the members of his administration, to either resign or be removed from office on Resign Textthe basis of their total incompetence in governing the United States with a complete disregard for the best interests of the American people.

The Democratic Party, who as members of the loyal opposition cannot be fully absolved from the blame by not challenging the actions and decisions of this President, his senior Administration appointees and the members of the Republican Party, when those actions and decisions were not in the best interests of the people of the United States.
The United States Constitution defines that all decisions made by the American President and the ruling political party shall be in the best interests of the American People in order for them to live as declared in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence published in Congress on the 4th of July 1776. I quote: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, (which of course is stretching the truth), that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure those rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principals and organising its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness".
To view my less than adequate political leanings, I would suggest that you to read the paragraph "Up front and personal - What you see is what you get", which can be located in the November 2004 edition of "View from America".

Leave them laughing as you go:
(A humorous article received from reader John in Canada).
A recent fire destroyed the personal Library of President George W. Bush. Both of his books were lost in the fire. A Presidential spokesperson said that the President was devastated, as he had not finished colouring the second one. Comment: As I have said previously a number of people worldwide see this President in a very different light to the Republican supporters who voted him into power.

Some of the information gathered for this newsletter is gleaned from American and International media sources, (including the Internet), and as such is quoted as accurately as possible. I try to obtain confirmation n on each subject from several outlets, so the text is a mixture of composite news items and personal comments and therefore the reader must make his/her own judgement as to the reliability and degree of accuracy of the subjects discussed.

Eric (Bill) Sykes. (California).
