Sent to me by my cousin, someone he knows actually sent this! Good man.

A Letter To The White House!!!!!!!!

No matter what one's personal politics, this letter -- to our President from one of our citizens -- is interesting to think about. We may agree with some of what he says, all of what he says, or none of what he says, but we must agree that he is passionate and unafraid to speak his mind in our free country.

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC20500

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 king of
Saudi Arabia. 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 bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. 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.. 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.

Sincerely,

cc: Senator Barbara A.. Mikulski

Interesting that they're all Dems.

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses

Yes they are Democrats

And, they are all from Maryland. It's hard to believe that one State could be shackled with such an array of socialists.

The true Americans are those who write the letters and take part in the democratic process. the real losers are the ones who acuse people of racism or bigotry if they disagree and fail to go along with the status quo.

I understand you are the raving liberal who comes here to get people riled. Are you capable of having a rational discussion, or just another online version of that Jeneane Garafolo fella?

I have asked samD not to delete your stuff. Here's the deal with global warming; it's bullshit, and the only scientists who support it are the ones who want grant money. I have no interest in this subject, as nobody on your side of the issue can answer a simple question about global warming; so what? For every scientist or study you show supporting it, there's a scientist and study countering it.

If you have other things to do and haven't found any decent conversation here, why come back?

Not a horse, ivantank

They fart and I think methane is a greenhouse gas, right? Does the flatulence and respiration of a horse produce more greenhouse gas than a human riding a bike? That's gotta be good for $100,000,000 in federal grants.

I rode an oxen once.

he/she/it confuses me. People like her are a bit ambiguous (sp). I have not seen her vagina to confirm her gender, nor would I want to take the chance. I imagine she spends time on the casting couch to get screentime, as she has no talent, so that means exposure to a decent variety of viruses. I'm still waiting for something intelligent from you. Nothing so far.

Oxen is plural. You can't ride an oxen. You can, however, ride an ox. Jeez, dumbass. Oh. You can't see a smile online. Sorry.

I said oxen. You never saw my rodeo ride (a brace of oxen virtually flying around the arena). Or maybe I was blinded by the "meats", screen couch kleiglights or Quest for Fire torches !

Global Warming is bullshit. It's politicized junk science. Meteorologists can't tell me for certain if it's going to rain two weeks from now, how are they going to tell me the world is going to flood in 100 years? You want to lower CO2 levels? Ban the oceans. They put out more CO2 than humans do by a huge margin. Ma Nature is a bitch and she'll do as she pleases. Global warming is as boring a subject to me as what Michelle Obama is wearing. I couldn't care less and this will never end, because in 15 years, when your Global warming crap is finally debunked, you libs will have another cause designed to tell everyone else how to live.

Anarchy?

It's as useless as communism. They are both completely against human nature. It's a worthless belief.

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your uneducated bullshit ass with us today.
As I read your rants and raves, I understand what we are dealing with is someone who decided that for once in their great life, to actually vote and give it to someone who does not do anything for "its" citizens or "its" country.
I Love This Country, I Dislike what you assholes are doing to it.

Gun Control= the theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

Keep this coming, we need to educate the people. Did you read about Pelosi and her grand scheme of national registration?

Dammit.

I just spent ten minutes going off on beatmeat and when I hit post comment it was gone. I had some good stuff in there too. Maybe I should not reply directly next time.

It's alright, I got let some steam off anyhow. I was just encouraging the global warming thing so that when people fill the streets with electric cars diesel prices will drop and I can afford to drive my pick-up for peanuts.

GOODMORNING from

the next stop in NASCAR nation. can i say that nothing that mr. mincemeat has said convinces me that he will practice what he preaches..so i just can take them seriously..and there is alot of tectnolgy out there to help us with reducing our consumption of fossel fuels. but why the fuck is it so expensive to use?? like solar panels?? i drive a chevy impala that has an engine set up to burn corn fuel...can't buy it anywhere..why??if the goverment was really intrested in helping the climate the shit would be and should be less expensive as a incentive not as a way to make even more money on the public

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

Mr. Bombastic.

I guess you forgot that one where Mr. Bush said he his Austrian was a bit rusty. By the way, you can bash Mr. Bush for alot of things, he was weak on illegal immigration and he too bought into the green movement to a certain degree in my opinion. He was far from my favorite president, but he came into office with a bit of a recession on his hands too. The uber inflated .com stocks started to meet with reality and people were losing their ass in the stock market. As for my "Messiah" comment, I have yet to see anyone want to paint a picture of President Bush with a crown of thorns and outstretched hands. I'll take the simple country rube who shares more closely my views over an eloquent speaking snake in the grass who renders the fabric of our great nation with hostile takeovers of our economic infrastructure.

If you wish to discuss firearms, let's talk. If you prefer to espouse things of a questionable nature, I would rather you take your dog and pony show to some other corner of this world wide web that your mentor Al Gore invented. Maybe he will invent a time macine next and you can rail against the coming ice age and save a dinosaur or two.

Lala land!

I just remembered some more things that bearmeat said and got pissed off again. Hey bare pickle, your going to call me ignorant and say I've lost credibility? I make plain my issues with your "Messiah" (Oops, I said it again). I didn't write a letter to the President about a make believe S.T.D. contracted from fauna. I disagree with T.A.R.P., I disagree with gun control laws, I think that Presiden Obama should have talked with our allies first and not slummed it up with our enemies and accepted anti U.S. propaganda. I'm sure theres a miriad of other issues I have with our Marxist in Chief and I'll openly say those too. You can go ahead and make light of peoples percieved inadequecies, both physical and mental. I however am in disagreance with ideas, and will not knock a man for a limp.

Now I shall drag my knuckles a bit. Here is a great idea for you to help global warming. Take the recycled cardboard tube from a roll of recycled paper towels. Go to the nearest cow pasture(by bicycle of course). Present said cardboard tube to the nearest bovine offending co2 emitting orafice. Inhale deeply and enjoy.
