About Me

My photo
I'm a simple man, not a simpleton. The worst thing any of our leaders can do is to get those two things confused. I'm a warrior for those things I believe in. I stand up for my friends, family, God, and country. All I truly want is for the government to stay as far out of my life as I can get it. Oh and just in case you haven't guessed it; I'm conservative in my bones.

An Email From Us All

This is a copy of an email that was sent to my wife. She passed it along to me and I thought I'd put it up here. Feel free to copy and disperse as you see fit. The phone number is legitimate and I have decided to call the woman and give her my support.

April 17, 2009
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington DC 20500

Mr. Obama:

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct
on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an
adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or
of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world
that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the
United States of America. You are responsible to the citizens of the
United States. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other
country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the
United States, telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care
about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World
War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of
the peoples of Europe? Are you brain dead? What do you think the
Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history
of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United
States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read
the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United
States? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the
principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come
directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all
Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the
Saudi Arabia CEO. You don't show Great Britain , our best and one of
our oldest allies, the respect they deserve, yet you bow down to the
king of Saudi Arabia. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can't find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation
because you don't want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a
mosque in Turkey. You offended our dead and every veteran when you
give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German
people from themselves. What's the matter with you?
I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have
the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be
ashamed of yourselves, all of you.
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the
American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves
in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic,
the Fannie Mae and the Freddie Mac gangs. What do you intend to do about
them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in
bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic
pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average
House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with
my employer. You haven't said anything about that. Who authorized
that? I surely didn't!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210
million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million
more than the AIG bonuses, which are bad enough. In fact, Fannie and
Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million. Not a bad
take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage
at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have
right now.
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and
not caring about what you idiots do.
We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly
fed up with all of you.
I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything
you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities.
I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get
a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
An ordinary American.
P.S. This is going to email addresses everywhere...it's past time for
all Americans to wake up!

This woman has put it on the line in ways that many of us in the blogging community wouldn't, she put her name and location as well as her job out there for attack. Support her by sending this to everyone you know.

Sorry she refers to him as sir. I do not think he deserves that title. Great letter otherwise.

Greywolfe said...

Well, at least she didn't call him "Mr. President". I still don't think he deserves the title. Not until I see a copy of his original Birth Certificate.

Joe said...

That was a clear and well written letter.

Does she have a blog that we can link to where she has posted the letter?

If not, I will link to this post and try to get people to read it here.

Greywolfe said...

As far as I know, Joe, she doesn't have a blog. Thanks for the links though, and feel free to copy it and send it through your email chains (if you have one. I don't.)
