Opinion/Editorial/Commentary - An Open Letter To One Of The Johns -- I'll let you figure out which one for yourselves.
(An Open Letter To One Of The Johns)
I was quite amused at your comments regarding Dick Cheney’s military record versus yours. You seem to be upset that people keep pointing out that you’re unfit for command. I believe you said that your two tours of duty would speak for your record. If four and a half months makes up two tours of duty my oldest son has already had two tours of duty in Iraq. Unlike you he is volunteering to go back. My youngest son using your math (which explains a lot about you by the way) has now had seven tours of duty in Iraq. You have been most vociferous about the swift boat ads and very silent about your friend George Soros. I know you also love Michael Moore’s dishonest work and are quite pleased with the things he so often makes up. You are unfit for command.
I heard that you think we needed to open a dialogue with the terrorists instead of shooting back. I would like to point out that they opened a dialogue with is when they hit the World Trade center the first time. What exactly is it that you want to say to them in this dialogue? They’ve been talking to us for quite a while now. I was mildly amused when you stated that the European Union wants to cut a deal with Iran to thwart their nuclear dreams. In case you haven’t noticed that didn’t work very well with North Korea. They have announced their intentions to even supply the terrorists with nuclear weapons. They got a bit quieter after Iraq.
You often say that the country is ready to change course. If that’s the case, why do you keep bringing up all of those idiotic failed policies? Most of you on the left were very upset when Bush announced he was stepping back from the ABM treaty. You want to talk about failed policies? That’s a doozey. We in the west followed it and you left-wingers thought Russia did too. They ignored it. You passed laws that made it illegal to keep track of groups, which are hostile to the United States and virtually all security investigations were shut down. Look at us now. I’m more than a little disinterested when I hear you question the abilities of the FBI. You and yours were the ones that screwed it up in the first place.
I know you’re very concerned about the possible disenfranchising of voters in Florida. The ones you’re probably most concerned about are the some sixty thousand voters who vote in both New York and Florida. As you’re probably aware because you read such things in New York papers with a sense of delight, sixty-eight percent of those people are Democrats, sixteen percent Republicans and sixteen percent the standard independent who is a rudderless citizen and votes based on last minute emotions. Just a suggestion here between you and I; Maybe you could get a bunch of votes in Florida by passing a law that will make it illegal for hurricanes to go there. Those that can’t follow simple instructions like removing chads from their ballots could easily be swayed by passage of such foolishness.
I’m certain that you’re starting to detect a pattern here. Yes I think you are an idiot. You are most definitely unfit for command no matter what anyone says. I’m just curious. Have you ever held a real job? I mean other than finding a richer woman to run off with? Most of us have to work so we aren’t too pleased to see you talking about undoing Bush’s tax relief. This is the dialogue you opened with us. I really have to wonder what stupidity would be in any dialogue you decide to open with the terrorists. What a brilliant tactician.
I just thought I’d drop you a line to tell you that your dialogue isn’t with me. I have values and they are solid. You and the other John are really no more than a couple of Johns out for the night. Your dialogue is more with the rudderless members of our society. Those are the people to whom you speak. You appeal to those who are tantalized by the thoughts of OPM (pronounced like opium) or Other Peoples Money.
You have shown yourself to be a Socialist and as such are unfit for command.

PS. Looks like that disarm America law is about to go away doesn’t it.
