Will Roberts – Phoenix – California.
Well, I am back from Japan; Sept 18th was by far my longest day in history. I left Tokyo at 6 p.m. and got back to Phoenix, AZ at 9:30 p.m. the next day. Don’t bother doing the math; it is around 42 hours total. At about 14 hours, I hit the wall!
The only other people that have had a day that long might have been the folks on Wall Street recently. I was following the steps of Wall Street USA and Asia. Mainly on the count of the fact that I was there and if we needed someone to stand up for us Americans I would be there. I have a feeling that all the bad things happening to our country may only be the beginning. It may not be as bad as the great depression but it sure is depressing.
The past year this cowboy humorist has been worried that folks would not see the humor in my comments. So, I have decided that until things lighten up, I am in my BLUE period.
The President had some words for us today, but I don’t think you can call what Bush did in the last few days was a pep talk. More like a game of peek a boo; only Americans are not laughing.
If you have ever had a typing class you must be familiar with that exercise where you type out that paragraph about the duty of an American. “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country . . . Mr. Bush, where is that speech? We would even take it in written form, in an email, something. A time like this in our country deserves a Roosevelt speech. Not a side thought, we need a friend right now.
We realize that you might have some hard times and folks don’t think you have done your job right. But here is a perfect time for you to come out and offer help and assistants to all us Americans. My mother always told me “If you make a mistake, work real hard the next time to make folks forget about the last one you made.”
Mr. President, I know your hands are probably tied, by your own party. I bet, after all it is an election year and the Republicans platform this time around is, “Get into the open and stay out of the Bush’s.” I would have said HOG tied, but Republicans are staying away from hogs and pigs these days.
Republicans BEWARE, if you don’t let this Republican President have a little elbow room to move around with, you might be boxing your party into a corner. Lately your party has been stuck on this piggy reference, so I will lay it out that way:
One little piggy went to the market and came back with less cause his dollar shrunk. The other piggy came back to his home; it was gone because it was foreclosed. The other little piggies, well they went to a costume party, a Republican costume party and they all dressed so they did not look like a Republican piggy. But it did not work because all the other animals knew no matter what the piggies did, they were still little piggies.
