An e-mail from President Bush!


This morning we e-mailed President Bush, expressing our concerns about global warming, and President Bush actually wrote us back.

Well, okay, it wasn't really a response from President Bush, but it was from the White House.

Well, okay, it wasn't really from the White House, but it was from their automatic e-mail response generator.

Here's the reply (annotated for clarity):

"On behalf of President Bush [who is preparing for his month-long vacation while the world goes to hell], thank you for your correspondence [which we have no intention of reading]. We appreciate hearing your views [ha!] and welcome your suggestions [want to buy some swampland?]. The President is committed [he should be, anyway] to continuing our economic progress [down the tubes], defending our freedom [to deprive others of theirs], and upholding our Nation's deepest values [e.g., screwing everyone but the rich].

"Due to the large volume of e-mail received [and ignored], the White House cannot respond to every message [because a house can't read or write, silly!]. Please visit the White House website for the most up-to-date information [lies] on Presidential initiatives [e.g., his plans to clear more brush this year than last], current events [except the secret ones], and topics of interest to you [will the Wizard of Oz ever give Bush a heart, or a brain?]. In order to better receive [and ignore] comments from the public [suckers!], a new [but equally worthless] system has been implemented [by a no-bid contractor]. In the future [if there is one] please send your [futile] comments to comments@whitehouse.gov.

"Thank you again for taking the time to write [even if we didn't take the time to read]."

global warming

Ah yes, that "new" Democrat platform with Al Gore (and his fleet of SUV's) leading the pack.

How much gas did you burn in our air to see his dumb movie? How much resources were used up to make that stupid movie?

Like we are to believe that Democrats care?

Justadog: It is distressing that people have made global warming a political issue, because it's really a biological one. Hot planet = catastrophic changes for all living things, including Republicans. What's "dumb" or "stupid" about a movie that merely states that fact?

It's too bad you're so blinded by your hatred of Al Gore and all things "liberal" (such as concern for the environment) that you won't let a little light in and see what's really going on around you. This planet and all of its inhabitants are in trouble, and denial only makes the situation worse.

Can you prove otherwise?

Justadog.. just b/c some science hating oil tycoons politicized global warming, doesn't mean it's a political issue.

You are so blinded by your willful ignorance and quite frankly, you need to answer the question that your suck-ass blog asks every reader?

WHERE's YOUR BRAIN?

Answer: Up your ass.

With any luck , Just a Dog and people like her will be raptured out of here before climate change arrives with full force. Then maybe - just maybe - the rest of us can get on with the business of deconstructing the current civilization and creating something more sustainable, beautiful and livable.

Thank you for your intelligent response editor.

I really don't think Gore's movie states anything that hasn't passed the news stand recently. Do you think there was a reason he released his movie in a timeframe when the weather in the USA would be hot (summer) instead of releasing it at the start of winter? He did have good marketing advise. Sort of like ABC network doing a survey in the heat of summer asking people if they believe they are the victims of global warming. Get real!

I recycle probably more than anyone in this town. We have 1 vehicle, an electric lawn mower, etc - no gas powered anything except our little import. I do believe that all of the Earth's resources are limited, and everyone needs to be more concerned about toxic air and land and water.

However, to use the topic of global warming as some liberal political stance and turn this into some blame Bush issue, blame big oil issue, is absurd. For every scientist that supports the theory there is one to counter it. Heck, an article in the Seattle Times highlighted Mt. St. Helens as the state's #1 polluter! A quote from that article:

Since Mount St. Helens started erupting in early October, it has been pumping out between 50 and 250 tons a day of sulfur dioxide, the lung-stinging gas that causes acid rain and contributes to haze.

Those emissions are so high that if the volcano was a new factory, it probably couldn't get a permit to operate, said Clint Bowman, an atmospheric physicist for the Washington Department of Ecology.

All of the state's industries combined produce about 120 tons a day of the noxious gas.


That's just one volcano in one state. Obviously industry pollutes and it should constantly be checked and reduced. But our planet is dynamic as well. No one seems to want to talk about the magnetic pole reversals that happen about ever 800,000 years - and we are about due for another. Science studies have been noting signs this may be closer than you might think, and it very well will effect the heat since the magnetic fields protect us from very hot rays from Sol.

Anyway, it certainly should not be a political issue - but liberals have made it so. Long after we are all dead and gone the Earth will continue to change - for the colder, or for the warmer.

Justadog... you blame liberals for politicizing global warming?

What do you call someone who refuses to even talk about it? Someone whose hand is up big oil's ass? Someone who refused to sign the KYOTO treaty?

Neo-cons have politicized everything from our health to humor to the environment. Just because so few conservatives are on baord for any issues of substance (such as the environment) doesn't make it an issue that the left has turned political.

Again... I ask, where's your brain?

So, Dog, you believe that the *Democrats* are politicizing environmental issues?
Really, now…

Excuse me while I go have an asthma attack.

I just heard yesterday Pat Robertson now believes in global warming. But his basis for that seems to be because he's been sweltering this summer: observational, rather than scientific.

I'm tempted to write him and tell him it only feels hot to people bypassed in the Rapture for turning God into an instrument of hate and exclusion.
