Bill Sykes' Newsletter from America.
An ex-Brit gives his views-(without fear
or favor)---of the American Scene
The last word:
As 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 the 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
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
