Dear Mr. President
THOUGHTS FROM WOODY CREEK
SUNDAY, AUGUST 21, 2011
I await with baited breath to hear Obama’s economic message when Congress returns after Labor Day. The trouble is that it's a political ploy. Obama is not going to seriously talk about re- building our economy; he is going to lay out talking points he knows the Republican Congress will not vote in just to build a case for re-election in 2012.
Mr President, let's be serious and lay out a vision for a tax structure that is simple and fair.
Oops... I forgot; the Republicans have all signed pledges to support a tax structure that is archaic and regressive.
Mr. President, please lay out a future foreign policy that is based on peace and not war. A policy that will allow us to invest in the Peace Corps and not the Armed Forces. A policy that will reduce military spending.
I forgot again... those Republicans. How can we reduce our military and still dominate the world?
Mr President, please paint a vision of an economy structured to grow with common sense regulations and rules.
Of course both parties have their special interests to protect.
Mr. President, show us the way to work together and get things done!
Oops and double Oops... those pesky republicans who's only agenda is to get you out of office will be troublesome when it comes to getting positive stuff done.
I guess that speech will just be political after all.
There is some shit we won't eat... and there is so much shit we are starving to death.
