Beyond angry

President Bush…

A good Christian walks the walk.

I’m a person who has made many mistakes, but you know what? I’m going to call you to the mat.

What you have done, and are doing, is wrong. It is, in my opinion, an axis of evil, what you have created with Karl Rove and Dick Cheney.

Jesus didn’t watch the lepers from afar, call them “the good folks” of Nazareth and then let them suffer with hope of supplies and relief arriving “any day.” No, Jesus went into their midst and TOUCHED THEM WITH HIS HANDS and heart. He heard their cries for help and went to them IMMEDIATELY. He LIVED AMONG THEM.

I find your acts, and those of your administration, to be blatantly racist. Not only against African-AMERICANS, but those living in poverty.

Mr. Bush, this is the journey of a Christian:

To be amongst the SUFFERING, to help others with kindness and change their lives with LOVE and GENEROUSITY. To TAKE ONE’S SHIRT OFF and give it to someone in need. To LAY DOWN one’s LIFE for another. And to do it every minute of every day. Not just when it is convenient to your plans.

This was the VOW and OATH you took when you STOLE the leadership of this great nation. To SERVE and PROTECT. Not TAKE AND DENY. Your lies have caused IMMENSE chaos and separation in this country. Your true colors are not red, white and blue. The color betraying you, finally, for ALL to see is yellow.

I am beyond angry. I am pissed off BIG TIME.

While I’m telling you all this, let me say I can NOT believe Condeeleeza Rice isn’t speaking up on behalf of Black Americans, women and children, the elderly, the poor. What kind of woman isn’t affected to the CORE by this extreme, intense and relentless suffering??? Women nursing need nourishment to nurse; you can not feed a baby from your body when you have nothing to give. There is no greater suffering than to hold a baby in your arms and watch it die. Also, they need diapers and wipes to prevent diaper rash (which can be severe and even kill children if not attended to immediately…); women on their periods need supplies and sanitary conditions.The elderly are DYING in their wheelchairs.

MR. BUSH we don’t need you. The people of this nation have a deep and generous heart you will never understand. We took action IMMEDIATELY because we understand suffering and fear. We want to help!!!!!! We have TAKEN ACTION.

You have really SCREWED UP. You could have made this world the place it was meant to be…people caring for people and living a life in peace. After 9-11, you had the GREATEST OPPORTUNITY EVER…EVER!!!… to move forward with LEADERSHIP and you turned it into a self-opportunistic corporate picnic. You have been the pawn, and participant, in the biggest scandal this country will EVER know and endure.

THIS SEEMS FUTILE at the moment with so much suffering and misery, but that is what some of the rich/elite don’t get…WE ARE CAPABLE OF RISING UP above our suffering to create the world your money can not buy.

WE WILL NOT GIVE UP. We WILL move forward and be a mass of protest, of anger without violence, and use our ANGER for good, for motivation, for change.

Do not let another minute go by without making the change begin now.

Promote the good you SAY you want to have happen.

Mr. Bush, GET TO WORK RIGHT NOW AND STOP IT. STOP FOOLING AROUND WITH INNOCENT LIVES. THE BLOOD OF A NATION IS ON YOUR HANDS. GET IN THERE AND GET DIRTY, GET BUSY, GET MOVING, GET THE ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION AND ALL THE CONGRESS TO GO WITH YOU AND FEEL THE LOSS WITH YOUR OWN HANDS. HOLD A DYING CHILD AND KNOW YOU COULD HAVE SAVED THAT LIFE. COMFORT THOSE THAT NEED COMFORT. BRING WATER TO THE THIRSTY. BRING ALL YOUR CLOTHES THAT WE, THE TAXPAYERS, HAVE PAID FOR AND GIVE THEM AWAY!!!!!!!!! SHOW THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY WHAT GIVING MEANS!!! BE A LEADER!!!!MOVE MOUNTAINS BECAUSE YOU CAN, BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE POWER TO DO IT. HEAR GOD’S CALLING AND USE IT NOW!!! DO IT! DO IT!!!!!!!

    You have said it all for all of us. When I think of what this government does for all other nations, it makes me think of the most two-faced person I have ever run into.
    How can we as a nation forget about our own? We have to keep our own citizens strong before we can attempt to strengthen the rest of the world.

    This is what has been forgotten by the glory-seekers of this present (and some past) administrations.

    God’s will WILL be done. I think we all are hearing and seeing that in these trying days.

  2. Right On! Power to the People! You really said it well! Who voted for this guy any ways?

    Amen, Sara! I am angry, too. And sad. The loss and the suffering of all our beloved brothers and sisters is devastating. We are one of the richest countries in the world and our government has allowed this to happen to our own. But if there is a light in all of this, it is that this tragedy has awakened the slumbering and complacent. I am seeing action and generosity in some of the most inspiring ways– as my colleagues, friends, and family offer their money and even their homes to those displaced by Katrina. This pattern repeats itself across the country, as step forward to do what the government is unwilling to do– offer hope and real solutions and support.

    God Bless, and thanks for your words. Your music has meant so much to me for so long, and it’s wonderful to know that a soulful and loving human being is truly at its heart.

  4. Amen, Amen,

    I’m embarressed as a conservative and as a Texan. President Bush has totally let us down. I grew up in Louisiana, my wife and I spent our honeymoon in New Orleans, it’s one of the places where she, my son and I go each year to spend time together. It’s a great city and to see the people there hurting with no support, pisses me off. As Sara said, we are a great nation and despite our leaders, we will rise up and do great things. President Bush your legacy is going to be one of someone who stood on the side lines during the crisis.

    Love and Mercy to all the people in Lousisiana, Missisippi and Alabama. Love and Mercy to us all.
