U.S. companies sold Iraq the ingredients to make the weapons of mass destruction that "justify" a US invasion. Of course, we didn't mind Iraq using WMD in the Iran-Iraq war--where we funded both sides so they could kill each other. The military's July "war games" were rigged. Sadly, the war ... continue reading

I'm with Stupid and Today is the Day

Dear friends, Today is, frankly, a day I thought I would never see. It is the day my book goes on sale to the public. That should be a simple event, as it happens every day with dozens of books that find their way to the bookstores of America. But ... continue reading

It Was Headed to the Shredder, Now They Say It's a Bestseller. Go Figure.

Dear friends, Thanks for all the letters since my email to you last week about the struggle I've been through trying to get my book released. And thanks for ordering it. The response has been overwhelming. Two months ago, it looked like 50,000 copies of Stupid White Men might head ... continue reading

Fahrenheit 911

Dear Friends, I'd like to tell you a little tale, a personal story of what it is like to fear losing your freedom of speech, how it feels to be drowned in a wave of patriotism which threatens with all its might to suffocate your ideas and stifle dissent. For ... continue reading

George W. in the Garden of Gethsemane

Hail George, Conqueror of Evildoers!

Dear George W. Bush: Hats off to you, sir, for a job well done! The Soviets tried for ten years to do what it took you only two months to accomplish in Afghanistan. How did you do that? It's funny how a couple months ago there were all these Taliban, ... continue reading

All I Am Saying Is Give War a Chance

Dear Friends, It's about time! I was beginning to worry that George II didn't have it in him, that he might wander off to vacation in Omaha again. But finally, the bombs are raining down on Afghanistan and, as Martha Stewart says, that's a good thing. Oh, don't get me ... continue reading

Lost in America, Closer to Home

Dear Friends, We have made it to Columbus, Ohio for the night and are staying just a couple of blocks from the state capitol building where Governor Rhodes gave the order on May 4, 1970, to send the National Guard to Kent State. There they opened fire on hundreds of ... continue reading

Somewhere in the Land of Enchantment

Dear Friends, Our second day on the road back to New York City... I am awakened by the sounds of the Star Spangled Banner coming from the lobby of the hotel where we have spent the night in Flagstaff. The memorial service has begun at the National Cathedral in Washington, ... continue reading

Crap. The Sequel: The Crap Ends Here

Dear friends, Well, the mail has been pouring in since my last letter. It's been running about 5 to 1 in support of my view that Bush's "reversals" of Clinton's last-minute orders were not only made possible by Clinton's 8-year postponement of them, but were not even reversals -- as ... continue reading

Why Don't We All Just Cut the Crap Right Now

Dear friends, Well, 101 days into the Junta and the fear mongers are having a heyday, aren't they? Even good liberals and Democrats have joined in the mantra. To listen to them, you'd think George W. Bush had opened the gates of hell and unleashed the legions of Satan upon ... continue reading

A Christmas Appeal to President Clinton

Dear President Clinton: Today, you begin your last month in office. There are many things my friends and I wish you could have accomplished in these last eight years. I'm sure you feel the same way. There are a few things, though, you could do in the next 30 days ... continue reading

We Need 3 Electors with a Conscience

Dear friends, There is still one more chance to stop the theft of the 2000 election. On Monday, the electors will gather in their respective state capitals to cast their votes for President. If just three of the Republicans' 271 electors switch their votes, Bush loses. I have to believe ... continue reading

Let's Look on the Bright Side of Life!

Dear friends, Hail to the Thief! On this dark, dark day in American history, I prefer to see the next White House as half-full instead of half-empty! That's just the kind of kooky optimist I am. Instead of brooding over the antics of our Supreme Court Jesters, I'd rather focus ... continue reading

The Machine Raged On Me

Dear friends, I just put a dollar bill in the soda pop machine.  The machine rejected my dollar bill!  Does that mean my dollar bill can no longer be counted as a dollar? After all, the pop machine refused to accept it as a legal tender. But it IS a ... continue reading

Get Ready, Folks -- Those Democrats Are About to Cave. Should We?

Dear friends, As I write this, the Supreme Court is deciding what to do. And the Democrats are running for cover. They are expecting to lose. They always do. No faith in their own position. No guts. The pundits are screaming for Al Gore to throw in the towel. He ... continue reading

Blame Monica!

Dear friends, For the past week I have suffered this unbearable guilt that I may have put George W. Bush in the White House. I thought back to the time I first met with Ralph Nader and, secretly, we hatched The Plot. Our goal? To make this country suffer, suffer, ... continue reading

Stop Bush's Theft of the People's Will!

Dear friends, It's after 5am on the East coast and things couldn't be more insane. At 2:20am, they declared Bush the winner. Gore called Bush and conceded. One hour later, all hell broke lose. Suddenly, Bush's 50,000 vote lead in Florida had dropped to 500! Gore, getting ready to take ... continue reading

A Final Election Day Letter

"...the vice president spoke candidly about criticism from local filmmaker Michael Moore that the Clinton administration has ignored Flint while trumpeting economic improvements in most other parts of the country. Moore and others have charged that Gore's recent interest in Flint is merely a symptom of a candidate willing to ... continue reading

How Gore Can Win

Dear Gore Voters or Those Frightened Enough to Vote for Gore: Thank you for your 20,000 e-mails. Please consider this letter my olive branch to you. I had not heard from most of you until after Gore blew the third debate. Suddenly, everyone realized Al might lose. No one, including ... continue reading
