Alan Maki responds to an e-mail from Brian Melendez MNDFL head

I guess it just goes to show you that our elected officials and those supporting them don't care about anything. Just being elected, enjoying their high title, and doing nothing, except being rich, lazy bastards. It makes me sick!!

These people running the Democratic Party make me have to puke.

I have received similar letters and phone calls from Democratic Party officials.

I got an e-mail from several of these DFL honchos demanding I remove their names and e-mail addresses from my blog telling me they have had too many people writing them. Who do these people think they are?

All the problems we have in Minnesota and these Democrats have't made an attempt to solve a single problem us poor people are experiencing.

I am glad Alan Maki made this letter public. Maybe if more people would do this we could hold these Democrats to something for a change.

An e-mail from Brian Melendez the head of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party.

Mr. Melendez who is the head of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party sent me this e-mail:

Mr. Maki,

Enough already.

Give Gaza a rest. Just let us enjoy our victory in electing Barack Obama.

You take up a cause and you try to push that cause down our throats. What don't you understand? We don't care about your diatribes about Gaza.

You started out demanding justice for casino workers claiming a little smoke is harmful to their health. Let them get another job if they don't like the opportunity we have given them. With you it is always demanding. Your list of demands is never ending.

You started with your casino workers. From there you went to demanding single-payer health care and this has turned into your demand for socialized health care because we didn't give you and your casino workers single-payer as soon as you demanded it.

You harp endlessly about Iraq.

Now you have taken up the cause of Palestinians and you are bashing our best friend and ally, Israel.

No, you aren't satisfied with taking up one of your issues at a time. Now you put them all together like they are related in some way and shove then all down our throats.

We are getting fed up with you. We have a big tent. Apparently our tent is not big enough for you and all your causes. Please pack up your tent and move elsewhere. Might I suggest you take your tent to Gaza.

Just leave us alone and give President Obama a chance.

Brian Melendez, Chair, MNDFL

My response:

Mr. Melendez,

Too many "causes” for you, eh?

Well, how many different promises does the Democratic Party make to voters to get elected, which you conveniently ignore once elected.

For your information, all the "causes" I am involved in are related. These problems, you call them "causes," all stem from this rotten capitalist system.

Might I suggest that you move on... perhaps find yourself a job working in one of your beloved smoke-filled casinos.
