A Letter To Obama From Harold B. Estes

Sarah Palin posted a link to this letter in her FaceBook entry Nov. 28.

November 20, 2009

Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes.
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation”
” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world,”America is mean-spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)
I’d say shame on the both of you but I don’t think you like America nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”
Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British ? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War ? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers,husbands,and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around because we stand for freedom.
I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American.If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts who was putting up a fight ? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president. You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.
Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

There is nothing more to say.

Climategate

Is there any doubt that if the global warmists had succeeded in getting the US Senate to approve the Kyoto treaties some 10 years ago, that the decline in global temperatures over the last few years would not have been hidden by the East Anglia CRU?

In fact, wouldn’t the results have been championed as PROOF of the success of the UN, success for Big Government action, and validation of everything the AGW hysterics have been saying?

Is there any doubt at all?

Four Washington police officers ambushed

“A scene out of a horror movie….”

LAKEWOOD, Wash. – Four police officers were shot and killed in a bloody Sunday morning ambush at a Lakewood-area coffee shop, officials said.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Ed Troyer called the ambush “a targeted attack” on the four Lakewood police officers as they were preparing to start their shifts at about 8:30 a.m.

Officials at the scene said one or two gunmen burst into the Forza Coffee Co. outlet at 11401 Steele St. South, shot the four uniformed officers as they were working on their laptop computers, then fled the scene.

Global warming means big business for Copenhagen

Hopenchange means big business for Copenhagen. Especially in the sex business.

City leaders report that business is brisk in the sex trade, and that evenings mean big bucks, as many global warmers, politicians and civil servants are reported to have availed themselves of the city’s prostitutes.

““We’ve been extremely busy. Politicians also need to relax after a long day,” says ‘Miss Dina’, herself a prostitute.”

Perhaps this is the kind of capitalism that the socialists approve of. Or, maybe after screwing over the public through the cap and trade tax plan, the Goremons need some time to unwind.

Emissions trading, indeed.

Grim Reaper Update

jseedubya posits this update to the Grim Reaper thread

“The Reaper happens to be an old friend of mine, Seedub – a confidante, if you will. I choose to disclose this fact to you not, as I’m sure it will seem to many, in some vein of shameless name-dropping, but rather out of concern for you.

Don’t get your hopes up about Obama:
A while ago, in the Reaper’s very presence, I surmised that your favorite politician was Ted Kennedy. Forgive my interference if undue or unfounded.”
