Give this teacher and true American a standing ovation. This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was brave enough to attach her name to it.

The  White House
1600  Pennsylvania Avenue
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 king of Saudi Arabia .... You didn'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.


Every real American

P.S.  I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'.................PLEASE
SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL's past time for all Americans to wake

Here is a thought and a challenge!!! They have no money and dont know where to get any for budgets!!!! I do!!! I think someone ought to do what a lot of these corporations are doing to people out here now. Fire everyone up there, take away their big salaries, bonuses, expense accounts, cars, etc AND insurances and let them learn to live on maybe a whole $10k to $15k (if your lucky) year Social Security or our big minimum wage like the most of us. They say they all know and understand BUT I beg to diff...they have all had and got money. Most have NEVER had to figure out to rob peter to pay paul and how to scronge for food and or pay for meds. OR how to go without.
Think if we "cleaned house" and bought in people that care about our country..that would be willing to make more money than they do now but make less than what is being wasted up there now and also bring back real moral values again that we could come up with something close to the trillions of dollars for budget cuts. I NEVER thought it would get to this point but over the years I and many others have come to be really and truely ashamed of how our government is run and how like children they have all become. Time for some big changes. Let some of us mothers that know how to scrimp and keep our homes together the best we can show the government how to.

I called the school to see if I could speak to her and the person on the phone from the school told me that she did work there but no longer was employed there . I have Great concern as to where OUR country is headed . Being a child of the 60's and have spent my whole life watching the Government and Praying for a politician that I was willing to suport . However the disclosures about Washington , the senators and congress members making money on inside information , voating themselves raises and bonuses , continual bailouts using our tax dollers w/o our concent continues to fuel my apathy toward the Govt. and officials . It makes me sick ! ! !

Sorry folks, the lady did not write it.
The lady is real, her name is correct, and she is/was a teacher at the school in MO.
The writer is said to be Franklin T. Bell of Columbia, Maryland, and apparently he acknowledges that he was the original author.

I don't get it, why will a fourth grade teacher from Missouri lose her job for freedom of speech ? I can't be that stupid .
