Subject: Great webpage!
Date: 6/7/99

Thanks for helping to expose the hypocrisy of George W. Bush. As is to be expected, the mainstream media conveniently ignores his past. It is very likely that in the year 2024 America will witness the battle of two former potheads for President.
I guess I should say alleged former potheads. Al Gore is at least honest enough to own up to his past. Unfortunately, neither politician will bring any lessons learned while waiting for the doobie to make its rounds to their campaign. Both will no doubt profess to be "tough on drugs" and commit billions more to a counterproductive drug war.
And why not? It is a great political tool which inspires the prison, alcohol, tobacco, advertising and pharmaceutical industries to donate big money to unscrupulous politicians. Who pays the price? Minorities of course! And the taxpayer. This lifestyle war costs billions and helps fund numerous duplicative and bloated government agencies. Not to mention the prison system with the highest incarceration rate in the world.
The "Land of the Free" is well on its way to becoming a police state, yet no one in the mainstream media is willing to make this known. The Washington Post runs articles on the violence, corruption and public health problems caused by the drug war almost daily, yet is seemingly staffed with morons because it fails to make the connection that the drug laws are the cause of these problems and not the drugs.
The lessons of alcohol Prohibition are lost on today's weasel politicians. I realize I'm preaching to the choir here. In conclusion, good job on the webpage. If you need help writing material I'd be happy to contribute. Its definitely a worthy cause.

Here is something that I feel I should share: It has come to my attention that a person called Bush is also the governor of Florida. This came as a surprise, as I am a resident of that state and I don't recall the election. This lapse may be in aid of previous drug use that occurred in the forty or so years before I grew up. I am not sure. I did, however, contact the authorities in Tallahassee and was informed that a Mr. "Jeb" Bush was in fact holding office there for at least "The next few years." Evidently, the first order of business for the new Chief of State was to ram through piece of legislation that makes it ok to give residents "School Vouchers" so their offspring may attend private schools at taxpayer expense. To qualify for this, the student must be enrolled in a so called failing school. (One might infer that such a school would be any one in which the student body was not entirely composed of white people.) This law is evidently very popular with The Catholic Church as well as the many "home grown" religions that litter this part of the south. Now maybe it is just a coincidence that Florida and Texas both have governors that share the same surname. A more sinister scenario would present itself if, by some horrible accident of fate,they were somehow related. If this is a possibility, then it is also possible that there are more than two. I, for one, plan to go to the local library and research this possibility. I am sure they have some sort of "book of governors" or something where I will be able to ascertain if there are more than two Governors Bush lurking in this great land. I will let you know what I find out. I enjoy your site and am sending it's URL to my friends and enemies alike.

I was reading your website and noticed that you called George Dubya Bush "an unsuccessful Texas businessman." I am not sure that is a completely accurate statement. You might want to investigate how much he sold his interest in the Texas Rangers for; he earned a considerable profit. Of course, he managed to earn that profit because he and his co-owners convinced the people of Arlington to fund the construction of a new ballpark, so it was more than just friends of his famous father who bailed him out.

You might also look into how much influence he actually has in Texas. Although He would undoubtedly carry the state with a large majority of the votes, it won't be because he is such a powerful and influential governor. After all, Texas' constitution severely limits the governor's power.

Good work. I'm glad someone is taking Bush seriously. I'm sure you know that 1996 and 1997 federal laws require the INS to send legal immigrants to their countries of origin for past criminal conduct, including very minor drug offenses. And now a ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has authorized the INS to revoke the citizenship of naturalized Americans with criminal pasts that pale in comparison to the allegations against this would-be president. Of course, since Bush is a natural born citizen he gets to stay, but should he be president?

One of the most unfair debacles throughout the country is the working couple that sacrifices extensively to have the money to send their child to a private school so that the chance for a good education is achieved. the 5-6,000 dollar range... This is in addition to the taxes paid to support the public schools. Seems to me, the funds expended on education...should be a tax deductible item..especially the low and moderate income of two working parents. If no voucher system...give help....this can be a powerful message for the electorate in 2024..... Goget'em Joe, San Diego

You had a feature about Bush and religious leaders. Don't forget that Bush contacted THE religious leader himself when it came to capital punishment. When Bush had to decide whether or not to spare converted Christian Karla Fay Tucker from the death penalty, he "resorted to prayer", or words to that effect. Please review his televised press conference offered on the night of her murder, I mean execution. Bush didn't mention what words God used to advise him to allow the killing to proceed; perhaps the Lord said "Stick her good"?

If you want my feedback, I would urge you to change your "there ought to be limits to freedom" slogan. Even though I understand what it is you are communicating, slogans need to inspire thought or action, such as "give me liberty or give me death".

To whom it may concern:

I recently read about your site in the New York Times on June 9, 1999. I went to the site and was quite impressed with the professional manner in which it was constructed. I support your campaign to reveal the truth about GWB. I have a question, though. I recently heard, perhaps out of context, that GWB earlier in his political career said that, "Jews don't go to heaven." Now, I don't want to accuse him of being an anti-semite(yet) because it could have been taken out of context, or could just not be true. However, I was wondering if you had the resources and time to research this, because if this is true I really think the public should know. I don't know if you are even the group to go to, but I figured I'd start with you since you are already a thorn in his side. If possible, can you please let me know the results of any of your findings. I would really appreciate any and all efforts on your part. Thank you for your time and consideration. I'll be waiting for those T-Shirts.

Great web site.

I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry when I heard about GW's quote "There ought to be limits to freedom." May God have mercy on his soul if he attempts any limits on my freedom.

Anyhoo, I also wanted to pass along a mildy amusing anecdote involving GW's brother Jeb. Jeb was campaigning for his father back in '88 when he stopped by my high school to talk with the students. He didn't realize that the high school he was visiting was located in an area that was decimated economically by Reagan's farm policies in the early 80's. Nor did he realize that some of the students actually read up on the news and would ask some particularly sticky questions.

I started the assault by asking what his father's role was in the Iran-Contra scandal. This threw him for a slight loop but Jeb responded by spouting the official line that VP Bush was not in the loop on that scandal. Then I dropped the bomb on him -- I asked "Well, then, how does that fare for someone who wants to have the #1 job in America, that while holding the #2 job, as well as being the former Director of the CIA, that he was NOT AWARE of what was going on with the Iran-Contra Affair? This question brought a prompt end to Jeb's campaign stop in my high school and he gave me a look of such contempt that I had to restrain from laughing. I trust the Bush family about as I can throw them.

Fight the power!!!

Those who step into the political arena, and attempt to convince other's of their political opinion, should be registered and pay whatever fees and fill out whatever paperwork is required of a political action committee. That is why, after I called my mother, and exhorted her not to vote for Bush, I registered myself as a political force. My listed expense was my nineteen cent phone call.

In the area discussing people's incarceration for small-time drug distribution, a description of the effects that prison has been demonstrated to have on people would be compelling. I believe that studies have shown that people who go to prison essentially turn out to be much more likely to commit criminal acts. Further, the prison industry is a "booming" one in this country and is becoming big business, which could make one question whether stricter sentencing legislation may be fueled in part by people with interests in keeping up prison populations (the actual increase in prison populations in staggering, though again I don't have the data on me)...

Finally, let us not forget the destruction of one's mental (and often physical) health and general "life" that frequently comes from incarceration--this is particularly tragic when people are jailed for minor offenses.

Dear Zack,

Heard your interview with Amy Goodman on Pacifica this morning. I was pleased to discover your expose-the-truth-campaign against G.W. Bush.

The issue which you highlighted, people serving dramatically long sentences for non-violent/drug offenses, is extremely distressing.

I recently heard a story about a 60 year-old woman in Inglewood, CA who was sentenced to 20 YEARS in prison for a conviction of cocaine posession. I was appalled to learn of such a grave injustice.

Are there any progressive methods which we, as concerned citizens, can take to change this ludicrous policy. I am sickened to know that a 60 year-old grandmother will be holed up in prison until her 80th birthday - if she doesn't die a broken woman in the "pen" first, that is.

I appreciate your efforts to expose the enormous hypocrisy of the slimey Bush offspring. Don't let (not that I even remotely think you will) G.W.'s attempt to put limits on freedom stop your pursuit.

Kudos, Carmen/LA
