Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.

No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Yours,

Michael Moore

P.S. That annoying mother, Cindy Sheehan, is no longer at your ranch. She and dozens of other relatives of the Iraqi War dead are now driving across the country, stopping in many cities along the way. Maybe you can catch up with them before they get to DC on September 21st.

ARE WE FINALLY ASHAMED ENOUGH TO STOP REPEAL OF THE ESTATE TAX? (take action now)

No, the subject of this email is not what the head of FEMA said in blaming the poor people of New Orleans for not escaping on their own from a looming category 5 hurricane bearing down on them, but that's what he really meant. Hundreds of thousands of people already drowning from the policies of this serve the rich only administration were totally abandoned and left to face the rising flood waters alone. So what does the Republican National Committee do? They issue an urgent action alert to contact members of Congress to push through repeal of the estate tax next week. Well we can do action alerts too. Tell them to PRESERVE the estate tax.

Then the president said, "So you're treading water in your attic with water up to your nose. That's fantastic, how uniquely American." No, he didn't actually say that either, but what he did say in his lying incompetent ignorance was that he'd did think anybody had anticipated this catastrophe, where for 5 years they have systematically purged from government anybody who ever tried to tell them the truth. After decimating our federal budget to finance more and more caviar for the rich is it any wonder there was nothing left for critical levee repairs in New Orleans, about which they could not have had more notice? And now they just want to prescribe more of the same poison.

You can use the one click action page above to not only instantly transmit your personal message to all your members of Congress, you can now send a Letter to the Editor of your nearest daily newspaper all at the same time. There is more information on the site about the estate tax policy issue, and also check out http://www.OpEdNews.com, the best source of real news and opinion on the web. Write your members of Congress now and tell them to take some personal responsibility for putting an end to the criminal negligence of George Bush.

THE NATIONAL GUARD MUST COME HOME AT ONCE

And while we're on the subject, what the hell is our National Guard doing in Iraq anyway, besides aggravating more hatred of our country and fueling the fires of yet more terrorism? Bush called Katrina the greatest natural disaster to ever hit this country. No, Mr. Bush, YOU are the biggest disaster to every strike America. You were off golfing while the experienced people you then fired begged you to do something about the terrorists about to attack our country, and then you just used that as an excuse to wreck our budget, our military, and now we've lost an entire major American city, sacrificed at the expense of your greedy cronies. We need the National Guard back home before it is too late for us all, and we must DEMAND it happen now.

http://www.usalone.net/nationalguard.htm

We must reach out to our fellow citizens every way we can. Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

If you would like to optin to alerts like these, you can do so at http://www.usalone.com/optin.htm
