USS Yancey in the South Pacific 1944
as heroic wing mates are hit by Nazi flack over Europe 1944
My Dearest Uncle Howard,
So after all we get a Harvard educated, brilliant President Obama elected.
But for some distorted reason, we got a congress partly managed by a few with the same tragic and criminal sentiments that gave us the above mockeries of our democratic nation. Recall the republican leadership motto, prompted by the woeful loser John McCain, and the myopic, richest-man-in-the-US-senate McConnell and the egoist house republican, tanning booth Boehner. "We will not rest until we have gotten rid of Obama!" They all chanted that like a Sunday school prayer until some huckster like the money-power-mad Rove cautioned them to shut up. "You'll lose the votes that way, so quiet down. Here's how you can make a good sound bite for TV that is code for the same thing," he certainly told them. And they sat on their hands while President Obama and his staff dealt with the gigantic international banks that skinned the American people and our Federal Government for hundreds of billions of dollars. That same congressional gang declared that our Federal government should not pay it's debts. Therefore our Federal government's credit rating fell and your credit card interest went up. Lately that gang wants to throw more hundreds of billions of dollars down the drain with more military attacks on any loud mouthed hawker in a turban who condemns our nation and our democracy on Al Jazeera TV. Then they say Obama caused all of this. No question, that is a lie of the worst order. And you and all Southern people truly know it in your souls and in your minds.
It is simple. Liars like that gang disgust me, and their lies destroy the good works and dreams of our nation. So think about how you wish this nation to be down the road a few decades. Do we want a business-based, remote, uncaring government dedicated to the revenues of a few giant companies and the egos of a few self-involved, fast-talking thugs? Or do we want a government that cares about protecting the regular people like you and me from injustice and attack from home and abroad.
Obama's African-American ancestors endured the worst oppression and cruelest burdens imaginable by our white society. Now the Obama family survives and prospers. Yes, there will be troubles and challenges and problems for our nation just like any Southern family. Just like any regular American family.
President Obama has clearly shown again and again and again that he has the right stuff to make us a better family and a better nation.
This is why there is no other choice. Vote for President Obama.
