Matt Capell (I love him like a brother) sent me this yesterday all the way from Italy:
Questions to ask the Bush administration and John McCain:
When we consider the almost half of the money spent on the Iraqi and Afghanistan war effort to "bring Democracy to their countries" has been stolen and/or remains unaccounted for, yet more is constantly being allocated:
Are there families living in abject poverty and ignorance all over the United States...children starve to death in the United States too. Check out Appalachia before you answer.
The United States continues to let the medical profession and the insurance industry and the drug merchants keep universal health care and affordable medicines from every citizen? Check out how many elderly citizens choose to buy medical things and pay medical bills before they buy food? See how many elderly are living on canned pet food.
The United States does not revere teachers enough to pay them in many cases a living wage...Teachers should be at the top of the pay scale. Why are schools underfunded and understaffed?
Why is every person who truly wants to not able to go to college and get a college degree including room, board and expenses?
Why is there little effort to rid ourselves of mid east oil dependency when there is plenty of oil in the US, Canada, Mexico and the gulf?
Why do we let the big oil companies rape the economy while huge profits are being made? Why have we not built any nor improved our refineries in years and years?
Why is the tax rate so low for the rich and so high (relatively) for the middle and lower economic portion of the population.
Why are soldiers coming back to the United States after fighting a war not afforded either adequate health care or educational benefits?
All these and others could be paid for in cash right now with the monies that have been stolen by the so called "freedom war" and war on terror.
The big question is:
WHY DO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PUT UP WITH THIS ANYMORE? IS THERE A REASON OR ARE WE JUST STUPID?
