The CIA and me
While I was in the U.S., I have been shown documents proving that Dictator Mubarak stole from Egyptian public money. Therefore, I tried to run for president of Egypt in Oct 1999. I started to prepare myself for presidency three and a half years prior to the election. Unfortunately, CIA interference and severe harassment has obliged me to discontinue my campaign. The CIA tried twice to assassinate me thereafter in Dec 1996 and in May 1997. If the CIA had left me alone, the events of Sept 11 wouldn't have occurred. I can prove that to Congress MPs in the American embassy in Cairo upon request. President Bush sends foreign aid over a billion dollars every year to Egypt. The American Tax-payer shouldn't finance corruption in Egypt any more. Please, tell your senators and House representatives to stop sending more foreign aid to Egypt until Dictator Mubarak returns all the money he has stolen from the Egyptian public money to the Egyptian people. Egyptian people hate Dictator Mubarak so much. Only a civil war can remove corrupt Dictator Mubarak from power.

Important vital message of national security
The president, congress, and the federal law-enforcemrnt authorities should stop trying to take Social Security from the American Citizens who are unaware of the fact the benefit of Social Security is one of their guaranteed civil rights -- another little government secret like Roswell that the US Government keeps from the American People. Instead the Federal Government should stop this illegal hacking activity which is an invasion of privacy that the US Cosnstitution guarantees to each and every American Citizen. If the American Citizens only knew how easily the law-enforcement authorities could fuck-them-over any time they were in the mood to do so through their personal computer with an Internet connection, every single American Citizen would stop using the Internet altogether.

Rhymes for the times
Morality created legality
Reality creates necessity
From prosperity to fatality
It's all part of life's recipe

Democratic Party's lament
Rehnquist is dead.
Who gives a shit?
We're losing the country
Bit by bit.
