Reality Check


Dear Editor,

Somebody should get Andrew G. Benjamin to the Ideological Detoxification Lab before he ends up in a straitjacket! It is sad to see a seemingly good mind spew forth such a distorted description of "Reality." Here, in fact, is the Reality that the "Genius" in the White House has produced:

Reality #1: a U.S. military defeat in Iraq that is going to turn Iraq into an extension of Iran and possibly lead to a regional war that will threaten our supply of oil and send it to $200 a barrel. Reality #2: the needless deaths of thousands of our troops (the war would be a "walk in the park") and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Reality#3: billions in war costs and tax cuts (skewed to the rich) that threaten to ultimately crush the economy with enormous debt and hyper-inflation. Reality #4: Housing foreclosures and personal bankruptcies that are at an all-time high.

Reality #5: Corporations making grotesque profits with little of those profits going to workers and most of it going to upper management salary increases and/or exporting of jobs overseas. Reality#6: the allowing of American businesses to evade pension obligations to workers. Reality #7: the failure to address the future solvency of Social Security. Reality #8: the failure to bring some measure of health care assistance to children and needy families.

Reality#9: the failure to enact a comprehensive immigration policy that can prevent the economic havoc currently being inflicted on our border states. Reality #10: a total failure to fund Homeland Security measures. Reality #11: the destruction of American world moral and political authority. Reality #12: a majority of Americans who are now in fear for the future of their country.

Mr. Benjamin, take off your ideological glasses and take a look at the REAL world!
