Our freedoms and security, fought and died for by Canadians and their allies, are under attack. The biggest threats to our freedom are too much government, the eco-lobby, and censors posing as human rights commissions. Our biggest security threat is Islam.

Obama scares all who value Freedom

I found a remarkable letter today about what concerns all conservatives about President Obama at the Conservative Grapevine. The CG referenced Chuck Norris' website, and from there I followed the link to Snopes which confirmed its validity. This letter is from an influential businessman, Lou Pritchett, who has 36 years of experience dealing with politicians. He does a masterful job of explaining the reasons why we should, and must challenge the mainstream media and Obama worshippers about the threat to what used to be the most free country on earth.



Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth 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.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core..

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd
and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett


From Snopes:

Origins: Lou Pritchett is a former vice president of Procter & Gamble whose career at that company spanned 36 years before his retirement in 1989, and he is the author of the 1995 business book, Stop Paddling & Start Rocking the Boat.

Mr. Pritchett confirmed to us that he was indeed the author of the much-circulated "open letter" quoted above:
I did write the 'you scare me' letter. I sent it to the NY Times but they never acknowledged or published it. However, it hit the internet and according to the ‘experts’ has had over 500,000 hits.

Asshole Awards

I read about too many assholes to write about them all at length. The world is full of them, and they will always be with us. At least we can still have fun outing them.

Here then is my first nominee. I'll find some way to summarize them as I go on.

#1 Ben Wizner

"This kind of desperation is caused by the uncertainty of not knowing whether one will ever be released or even charged," said Ben Wizner, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney."

He was commenting on the fifth terrorist suicide at Guantanamo. What an asshole. If they all killed themselves, the world would be better off and the Gitmo issue would be over.

The article at Fox News


The article discusses the Obama "plan" to close Gitmo even as 65% of Americans oppose that. Then there's the nasty business of the Real ID Act:

The Weekly Standard found another sticking point: the 2005 Real ID Act, which then-Sen. Obama supported, expressly bans any foreigner from entering U.S. who "has engaged in a terrorist activity, endorses or espouses terrorist activity or has received military-type training from a terrorist organization."

What sayeth thou now, Comrade Obama?
