- Former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca has just finished a book
entitled "Where Have all the Leaders Gone" in which he excoriates
Dubya, our traitor and chief, by acknowledging that the war in Iraq, its
subsequent occupation and our continuing presence there are ALL based on
a "pack of lies." Gee - thanks Lee; where the hell were you when
this became obvious more than four years ago?
- Iacocca's book looks interesting enough based upon its
excerpts, a few of which actually indicate Iacocca "gets it."
But one wonders if he really does? One excerpt in particular suggests that
Iacocca knows about the neo-Bolsheviks in Washington, but alas, even this
great man is apparently hesitant to call a "spade a spade."
- "Who are these guys anyway? Why are we in this mess?
How did we end up with this crowd in Washington? Well, we voted for them
-- or at least some of us did. But I'll tell you what we didn't do. We
didn't agree to suspend the Constitution. We didn't agree to stop asking
questions or demanding answers. Some of us are sick and tired of people
who call free speech treason. Where I come from that's a dictatorship,
not a democracy... And don't tell me it's all the fault of right-wing Republicans
or liberal Democrats. That's an intellectually lazy argument, and it's
part of the reason we're in this stew. We're not just a nation of factions.
We're a people. We share common principles and ideals. And we rise and
- Now, If I were to actually write Iacocca a letter, it
would look something like this:
- Dear Lee,
- Who indeed! Lee, you're not doing us any good by tap
dancing around the answer to your own rhetorical question. You know as
well as I do who it is, why won't you say? Who has done this before Lee?
Precedent was set more than ninety years ago when the same Bolshevik ideologues
took over Russia in much the same way, suspending any and every tenet of
human decency and pretty much for the same reason, to prevent public criticism
and exposure! They're doing the same thing now Lee, but they're doing it
behind the cloak of other minorities; you've got to know by now that the
entire point behind the initiation of "hate crime" legislation
[and the associated "hate speech" provisions] is ultimately to
suppress criticism of them. Lee, they are the ones that injected the idea
that our Constitutional guarantees of free speech are "hateful"
and "treasonous," you've got to know this. This isn't something
our Yale cheerleader thought of by himself [Damn him anyway]. Lee, are
you going to stand silently as they continue this assault on our right
to freely speak our minds. Are you going to let allow our society to go
down the drain or are you going to do as Henry Ford did before you and
tell the truth? In your book you implored the reader to "wake up,"
but you apparently haven't finished your nap yet. Why?
- One of your "nine C's of leadership" includes
"character". You wrote:
- "A leader has to be a person of character. That
means knowing the difference between right and wrong and having the guts
to do the right thing A leader must have courage; I'm talking about balls."
- I'm waiting Lee, when will you grab your balls and do
the right thing! I promise I'll be behind you all the way, as will most
of America. You don't actually believe the media's rhetoric do you? You
ought to know by now that anyone that matters no longer pays the mainstream
establishment media any attention nor lends it any credibility they
used up all their capital and more covering up 9-11. Lee, nobody of any
consequence believes CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc wake up!
- Lee, I know you know who is behind the war in Iraq and
why it was launched in the first place. You don't seem to have a great
deal of faith in the "popular" idea that the Iraq war is about
oil, a convenient but unsupportable scapegoat/chimera, based upon the following
excerpt which clearly reveals, at least in my mind, that the reasons you
list with questions marks behind them, probably aren't the real agenda:
- "He [Bush] has sent our troops (not to mention hundreds
of thousands of innocent Iraqi citizens) to their deaths -- for what? To
build our oil reserves? To avenge his daddy because Saddam Hussein once
tried to have him killed? To show his daddy he's tougher? The motivations
behind the war in Iraq are questionable, and the execution of the war has
been a disaster. A man of character does not ask a single soldier to die
for a failed policy."
- You rightly excoriate Bush and Congress for being apathetic
and uninvolved, for spending more time on vacation at the ranch than in
Washington, but you neglect to mention that there really isn't any reason
for them to be in Washington based upon the undeniable fact that our government
is being run from New York and Tel Aviv anyway. How come? If you're afraid,
you'd be a helluva lot safer by coming out and emphatically stating this
than beating around the bush and making these people paranoid that you
might just become a loud mouthed populist at some point in the future.
Another way to absolutely guarantee your own safety is to make it perfectly
clear now that you are not going to apologize for any comments you might
make in the future. In order for the media to capitalize on "nappy
headed hoe" type comments; the media has to be certain you'll apologize.
Refusal to do so completely neuters them and makes them look stupid.
- In your book you wrote that "charisma" is an
important quality in a leader and that people tend to follow a leader "because
they trust him." Lee, this is an important point and I'm glad you
brought it up. You see Lee; the majority of the intelligent people in this
country no longer trust Bush or the Republican Party. But here's the kicker,
they no longer trust the Democrats either. Both parties have squandered
the good will of their base they have spit in the face of their constituencies,
when they open their mouths, they habitually lie, and the American people
have figured it out. Lee, you don't expect us to believe that Hillary Clinton
is really a frontrunner do you? Obama? John McCain? Rudy Giuliani? Come
on Lee, too many people already know that these people are handpicked front
men, millions upon millions of people have already seen every last one
of them prostrate themselves before AIPAC, we aren't that stupid. One of
them will undoubtedly be elected in 2008 but it won't be because they received
the majority of the vote, it'll be because another election gets hijacked
and "good people" like yourself refuse to stand up and say so.
You wake up!
- Another thing Lee, you seem to insinuate in your book
that Bush failed as a leader on 9-11 because he sat with a perplexed look
on his face for twenty minutes in a Florida classroom after being informed
that America was under attack, as if there was really anything else he
should have been doing. Lee, are you the last person on the face of the
earth that believes the "official government version" of what
happened on 9-11? It was an inside job stupid! Bush did what he was instructed
to do, nothing! This isn't to say that a coward of the magnitude of Bush
would have been able to do anything were he not complicit, but nonetheless
our traitor and chief did just what he was suppose to do, and that was
nothing. It's okay Lee, you can say this too, everyone knows it; it isn't
a secret and/or a "conspiracy theory" any longer it's pretty
much mainstream, although the media would like you to believe otherwise.
I live in the heart of Texas at present and it's difficult for me to find
any Bush supporters anymore, they took off their bumper stickers a year
ago [When Bush exposed himself fully by insisting that America absorb 20
million illegal aliens] and I haven't found anyone in the last nine months
that will openly admit to believing in the governments version of 9-11.
Sure, some of them might go home and tell their husbands/wives they still
believe that load of bullshit, but they're too embarrassed to admit as
- Lastly, I couldn't help but note this paragraph you wrote:
- "I have news for the gang in Congress. We didn't
elect you to sit on your asses and do nothing and remain silent while our
democracy is being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity.
What is everybody so afraid of? That some bobblehead on Fox News will call
them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a
- Thanks Lee, you took the words right out of my mouth.
Now, why don't you grab your balls, take your own advice, and tell us all
just how kosher Washington DC has become?
