    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak my mind. I lost my job this
    past year. When Bill Clinton was president I was secure and prosperous, but
    in the last year, we had to close our operations. We simply could not
    compete with foreign labor. This foreign labor worked for low pay under very
    bad conditions.

    They worked very long shifts, and many even died on the job.

    This competition could hardly be called "fair." I was forced out of the
    place where I had worked for 34 years.

    Not a single government program was there to help me.

    How can Bush call himself "compassionate"? Far worse, I lost two of my sons
    in Bush & Blair's evil war in Iraq. My sons gave their lives for their
    country, and for what? So that Bush's oil buddies can get rich? And the
    pain of losing my sons is indescribable.

    While it is trivial next to the loss of my sons, I regret to say that I also
    lost my home. I simply have nothing left. How can Bush call himself a
    Christian when he neglects people like me? I am a senior citizen with
    medical problems. I'm not in a position where I can begin a new career. I
    was reduced to the point where I had to live in a hovel, all because of
    President George W Bush.

    And when the authorities found me there, did they have any compassion for my
    misfortune and ailments? No, I was arrested. Mr. Bush, I dare you to look me
    in the face and tell me you are a compassionate man! I dare you to look me
    in the face and tell me you are a Christian. If I had any money left, I
    would donate it to the Democratic Party.

    If Al Gore had been elected in 2000 I would still have a job, a home, and
    most importantly, my dear sons! I hope you lose the election.

    Truly yours,
    Saddam Hussein
  2. In fairness you'd have to file that alongside the similar letter Bush senior received from an unemployed hispanic fellow named Manuel Noriega. :D

    Now, now. Noriega was provided with a private flight to the US paid for by the government, free room & board, free medical and free sex for the remainder of his life. He was permitted to publish his less than national best seller, America's Prisoner: The Memoirs of Manuel Noriega. He can hardly complain about being inconvenienced in the same manner as Mr. Saddam.
