Hey Al, tell us again about global warming

To the Editor:

In my last letter I was compared to Joe McCarthy. No, Mr. Bivens, Im not looking over my shoulder or searching every nook and cranny for commies. Theyve got the same constitutional protection as I do. Im just concerned about the piece-meal dismantling of our constitution that the ACLU, radical judges, atheists and homeland security are guilty of.

Now Nancy Pelosi and some of her cronies in congress are toying with the idea of merging the United States, Canada and Mexico into one nation called the American Union. What happens next? Do they abolish our constitutions and draw up a new document to cover us all? How many of our liberties do we keep from ours?

Remember Canada has little to no gun rights and Mexico has practically none. Canada is like Great Brittain. Over there if you shoot a burglar you go to jail. If you happen to use an illegal gun (which most are), its considered premeditated and you get three free meals a day for the rest of your life in prison. Switzerland has the best gun rights. No gun control. Everyone can own one and their crime rate involving a gun is almost nil. But dont try to go there. You get put on a 10- to 12-year waiting list and they can take you off the list at any time, for any reason.

Well, its January, 2010; do you know where your president is? He just got back from Hawaii. Hes out in Air Force One guzzling about 2,000 gallons of fuel per hour he doesnt want you to have. Wow. How many vacation days a year does that job pay? Hes always gone somewhere. Gee. I thought he found that birth certificate already. Try Kenya Mr. President. Ive seen a picture of one they say is on file there.

Id like to go back to Hawaii again but Ill wait til the president leaves office. They say he keeps the roads so congested since hes got first dibs on the highways and everyone else has to yield to his convoy of limos.

Ever wonder why Hawaii has three interstate highways? They have H-1, H-2 and H-3. When I was in Honolulu in 2008 I asked them that question. They told me it was to connect our three main military installations. Army, Navy and Air Force. Makes sense to me, but why not call it an Intrastate highway?

Where is Al Gore? Hes probably at the equator speaking on global warming. I was at glacier bay watching the calving process (thats when glaciers melt and large chunks fall in the sea) and I didnt see him. Then I went to Juneau to see the Mendenhall glacier and he wasnt there either. He must have been on the backside building fires so he could call his big buddy Robert Redford and tell him what was happening to the ice caps. Hey Al, come on back and tell us again about global warming. We keep forgetting and were freezing our butts off.
