State of Union Smugness

RECEIVED Thu., Feb. 3, 2005

Dear Editor,
   George Bush, on his State of the Union smugness, is promising me, a baby boomer in her 50s, the security that FDR promised my deceased parents. However, he says that my son and grandchildren must privatize and have the sense to buy into Google before Google went $200 today.
   Frankly, I want my Social Security D.C. investors to look into the crap in environmental Texas, calculate Pennsylvania and offshore San Diego, and then tell me that George Bush has an inkling about the economic situations Jenna and Barbara Jr. will be facing come 10 years from now.
   I am so grateful that Jenna and Barbara are paying for my retirement, and too bad the oil well my great-grandparents bought in Brazoria County is running out.
   I mean, I know Sixth Street policing of spaced and high kids is important, but …
Love and peace,
Luisa Inez Newton
