Yes, folks, this has made the rounds for the last couple of years and may not be new to you, but it’s worth repeating again today…especially in light of the latest Obamacare mandate requiring insurance companies to provide “free” contraceptives to all employees; even for those who work for religious charities, hospitals and institutions, completely disregarding the First Amendment.
Lou Pritchett, former executive for Procter & Gamble, did pen this letter, and told Snopes that even though he submitted it to the NY Times as an op-ed, he said they neither acknowledged it nor published it. Yet, it’s received world-wide attention due to the popularity of the message.
Here is his never-published letter:
Dear President Obama:
You are the 13th President under whom I have lived and, unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
If you’re like me, and you’ve been somewhat perplexed by some of the things the Obama Administration has been doing, you need look no further than a blog posting from 2008 by one of the founders of the Weather Underground; Mark Rudd.
Back in ’08, it appears Rudd was trying to assure his fellow radicals and progressives that what Obama was going to do would have reason, and in the end, they would all be able to understand it in retrospect. Believe me. Nothing this president has done has been without reason, either by action or inaction. His choices, after reading Rudd’s piece, are all very clear to me now.
To begin with, Rudd explains how Obama got elected in the first place, and why he positioned himself the way he did in his piece titled “Let’s Get Smart About Obama:”
Obama is a very strategic thinker. He knew precisely what it would take to get elected and didn’t blow it. He used community organizing methods to mobilize a base consisting of many people who had never voted before or who regularly don’t vote.
From tonight’s episode of the show, Glenn demonstrates (to me, at least), exactly why Obama is failing us as a leader. B-HO never talks to or with us; he always talks AT us. And he NEVER extolls the virtues of America…only tries to highlight her downfalls.
Shame we can’t get this kind of passion from “Teh Won.”
Unfortunately these days, law enforcement deaths have been happening all-too-frequently. In the past 24 hours alone, 11 officer have been killed. In 2010, line-of-duty deaths rose 40% from 2009 statistics, and 2011 is getting off to a rocky start. I am praying for all of our law enforcement officers out there, as well as our first responders, firefighters, and anyone else who runs to the face of danger while the rest of us are running from it.
Glenn, I agree with you that we should find out how to donate to donate to local LOD death funds to help support the families and children of the fallen. God knows America owes her public safety professionals every bit of gratitude we can muster. And we must forever shun those violent extremists, left or right, communist or anarchists, who still target LEOs (or as they still call them “pigs,” which is totally disgraceful).
If you do nothing else this weekend and this upcoming week (hell, for the rest of your lives while you’re still standing), please see how you can help with families of fallen officers, and as important, when you see an officer, make a concerted effort to shake their hands, tell them how much you appreciate them, and implore them to be sure and wear their vests.
Today’s Glenn Beck show was a very somber yet thought-provoking one. Living, breathing, sentient beings are turning against one another, and for stupid, idiotic reasons. Since when did we think it was good for the Republic that we be fighting amongst ourselves, instead of uniting together again like we did on 9/11 & 9/12/01?
Unfortunately, our priorities are all fouled up. The man-on-the-street interviews done by many TV hosts show the sad state of intellect and knowledge that is going to be the death of this country if we don’t wise up.
Glenn makes a great point about this very subject. Why is it that “The Jersey Shore” has record-breaking ratings for MTV, yet most of the viewers of these shows cannot name many elected officials when shown their photos? Why do we ALLOW ourselves to become so focused on the “Entertainment Tonight” shows of the world, yet refuse to pull our heads out of our asses long enough to at least pay attention to some of what’s going on in the real world?
