...so, this is to Mrs. Parrish, who wrote the "We Noticed" letter:

Today I read your attack on our President. It's time we had a talk.

During the 2004 campaign for President, Americans watched as you made mockery of the American military by wearing a "purple heart" bandage on your chin, signifying how little you thought of someone who disagreed with your views.

YES, "We Noticed".

During one of the many speeches of your Vice President, Americans heard Dick Cheney say, flat out, that Republicans are the only ones that can keep them safe, even after allowing 9/11 to happen, and even after the debacle that was FEMA's response to Hurricane Katrina.

YES, "We Noticed".

When President Bush promised to get the perpetrators of 9/11 "dead or alive", then almost immediately lied about who those perpetrators were, while simultaneously not caring whether those perpetrators were ever brought to justice.

YES, "We Noticed".

Every time you and your ilk flat out called Americans who called President Bush out on above "Traitors", "Mentally Deranged", "UnAmerican," "Treasonous," and consisting of "Bush Derangement Syndrome," even though the majority of the entire world agreed with us...and no, we didn't forget Poland.

YES, "We Noticed".

When the pastor of your next chosen Vice President, Sarah Palin, made it clear that he believed the problem with America was that there were simply too many demons, and that your next chosen Vice President willingly had his hands laid on her, like some 19th century voodoo shaman. She never disassociated herself from that pastor, even when her campaign was falling apart because of it.

YES, "We Noticed".

When President Bush announced that we should "stay the course," we wondered why. Even if Iraq was a success, it would still be the wrong decision.

YES, "We Noticed".

You want us believe that you had any part in getting Barack Obama to the White House, even though you can't keep your racist undertones from a simple blog post. Well, KEEP THIS IN MIND: Prior to your voting for President Bush, he was a governor from Texas, and from what we can glean from the records available, not a very good one.

YES, "We Noticed".

All through his presidency, he surrounded himself with career politicians from two failed administrations: The administration of the only President ever to resign the office in disgrace; and the administration of the President who increased the national debt by the largest margin in U.S. history...until Mr. Bush came along. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country or her traditions...only their own pocketbooks.

YES, "We Noticed".

We are 9 months into his successor's term and every morning millions of Americans roll over and hit the Snooze button of the horrors heaped on them by him. His policies saddled working Americans with a tax increase (yes, 95% of Americans paid more in their taxes when he went out than when he went in) while cutting the taxes on his rich buddies that, along with his escalation of two needless wars, bankrupted this nation.

YES, "We Noticed".

You seek, by protesting, to further cripple this nation by appeasing the corporate interests that worked to stop healthcare reform, and very nearly did. You believe you are being oppressed by the government, when it is your corporate masters that are oppressing you, telling you that your civil rights are being violated when the only thing that is being violated is their bottom line.

YES, "We Noticed".

On September 11, 2001, there were no Democrats or Republicans. There was only Us vs. Them. And it was the administration you backed that turned everyone who didn't agree with them or you, including a large majority of the world and 1/3 of the population of the country you purport to be "saving", into Them.

YES, "We Noticed".

There were many of us who hoped, when Barack Obama took office, that you and the Republicans your kind elected would usher in a new era of bipartisanship. Instead, we have the "Party of No", who will not vote for anything a Democrat backs, even if they backed it previously. The Republican Party has failed you, and us.

YES, "We Noticed".

You believe that history will bear out your partisan rhetoric as anything other than what it is...a foolhearted emotional plea for the gullible. Every time you and your ilk open their mouths, you disgrace the memory of 9/11, and those who died on that day. Your bickering against a government that you supported up until January 20, 2009 is simply pathetic.

YES, "We Noticed".

You cannot see anyone who believes in things that you don't as anything other than an embarrassment. Be prepared to be embarrassed some more, because your 19th century ideal is just that...a thing of the past.

YES, "We Noticed".

We have noticed all these things. These things are the very reason the current President is in office. We will deal with you and your ilk. When you attempt your removal of your President from office, we will meet the charge head-on, if we must.

Take notice.
