Letter from Grandpa

John G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He’s a life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated. With the stock market crashing and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama. After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other Republican family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that her party is taking over.

Having lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse. Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.

Here is his reply:

Sweetheart,

I received your request for assistance.

Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I’m sympathetic to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed. With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our own…”The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan.” Let me explain.

Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc. We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan has changed. Your president is raising our personal and business taxes significantly. He says it is so he can give our hard earned money to other people. Do you know what this means, Ashley? It means less for us, and we must cut back on many business and personal expenses.

You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week. I can’t afford to pay her salary and all of the government mandated taxes that go with having employees. Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle the books. We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income to the Wal-Mart.

I’m also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this morning. He already knows about it and he’s upset because he will have to give up skydiving and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey the polar bears.

That’s just the business side of things. Some personal economic effects of Obama’s new taxation policies include none other than you. You know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts, etc., etc. But by your vote, you have chosen to help others — not at your expense — but at our expense.

If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call 202-456-1111. That is the direct phone number for the White House. You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote Republican. You said Mr. Obama is going to be the People’s President, and is going to help every American live a better life. Based on everything you’ve told me, along with all the promises we heard during the campaign, I’m sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me for the account number which I memorized years ago.

Perhaps you can now understand what I’ve been saying all my life: those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves. What Obama supporters don’t seem to realize is all of the money he is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans (the so-called “less fortunate”) comes from tax-paying families.

Remember how you told me, “Only the richest of the rich will be affected”? Well guess what, honey? Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich. On paper, it might look that way, but in the real world, we are far from it.

As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper. You understand what that means, right? It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less money; less money for everything, including granddaughters.

I’m sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over. I have no money to give you now. So, congratulations on your choice for “change.” For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash you have received from us, just since you went off to college, and compare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8) years. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the gift of our hearts.

Remember, we love you dearly….but from now on you’ll need to call the number mentioned above. Your “Savior” has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it from him.

Good luck, sweetheart.

Love,

Grandpa

    Thank you for giving this great read. View my very own!

    Read this. Tell me it isn’t true, say someone made it up. Go ahead and snopes the shot out of it. But you know this is how things are now.

    John G. Is 63 years old and owns a small business. He’s a life-long Democrat and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated. With the stock market crashing and eight years of war debt piling up and choking the economy, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

    John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Sarah Palin between Twilight Novels. Her politcal awareness stems from watching Fox and Friends in the morning while drinking Starbucks. After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other Democratic family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is screwed now because some Kenyan is president now.

    Having lost both roommates because they couldn’t stand how much of a twat she was, Ashley recently ran short of cash after blowing through all the financial aid and tax credits she received from the Federal Government and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse. Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.

    Here is his reply:

    Sweetheart,

    I received your request for assistance.

    Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I’m sympathetic to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed. With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our own…”The Ashley Economic Awakening Plan.” Let me explain.

    Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things. We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan has changed. Our former president and the political party you advocate for have destroyed the middle class and turned a surplus into massive debt we may never be able to repay. We have more people homeless and starving in the United States because of your support of failed politics that have devestated countless industries. You think that if you siphon our hard earned money to the super-wealthy that the investment will pay us back 10-fold ut the only thing that trickles down in trickle-down economics is shit.

    You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week. I can’t afford to pay her salary because you fought hard to prevent economic stimulus money from coming to our state – effectively killing our industry. Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle the books. We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income to the Wal-Mart. I guess you probably don’t mind that though since they’re a big business.

    I’m also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. His Health Insurance dropped him because the depression over losing his job was seen as a preexisting condition and they have refused to cover the medical bills from the chronic illness that worsened from not being able to afford a doctor.

    That’s just the business side of things. The economic effects of Obama’s new policies would have softened the blow but you took to the streets wrapped up in crazy theories about birth certificates until things fell through. Your selfish “fuck you, got mine” attitude.. it’s just too much.

    If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call your Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. Thanks to people like you, they’ve influenced policy for years and siphoned plenty of money to fatten themsevles from your friends. You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote Democratic. You said Mr. Obama is going to be the downfall of the country, and that it’s better to let every poor lazy person die a shameful death than remove the personal trainer from even one penthouse suite.

    Based on everything you’ve told me, along with all the angry rants we heard during the campaign, I’m sure theywill be happy to transfer some blood money into your bank account. Have him call me for the account number which I memorized years ago..

    Perhaps you can now understand what I’ve been saying all my life: those who support the politics and elected officials should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves. What Republicans don’t seem to realize is all of the money you’ve been redistributing to wealthy bankers and non-taxpaying Corporations (the so-called “real Americans”) comes from tax-paying families.

    As you said while campaigning for McCain-Palin, everyone should have to carry an equal share of the burden so the elite in America can prosper. You understand what that means, right? It means that saddling the cost of business on productive workers in your company so you can take your weekend resort-spa trip results in them having less money; less money for everything, including granddaughters.

    I’m sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over. I have no money to give you now. So, congratulations on your choice for “a great white hope.” For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the “socialism” you have received from us, just since you went off to college. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the gift of our hearts.

    Remember, we love you dearly….but from now on you’ll need to call your political masters. Your “Real Americans” have the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it from them.

    Good luck, sweetheart.

    Love,
    Grandpa

    We think that todays administration under President Obama or previous political parties had a goal of enforcing our immigration laws. But corrupt politicians intervened on behalf of the open border fanatics and special interest lobbyists. As with E-Verify that has become a spotlighted enforcement law, because it was originally nearly tabled by Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). But public uproar caused them to forcibly change their decisions and fully fund E-Verify for another 3 years. WITHOUT PUBLIC SUPPORT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CAVED-IN? Right now it is the–ONLY–true enforcement tool implemented, but it is only as good–IF–business owners are forced to use it. Even though hundreds of thousands of companies have now decided to apply it, yet it is not MANDATORY? It is up to the discretion of employers? In a few states Representatives have introduced it into law, as with the fed’s issuing an ultimatum that all contractors/subcontractors must use E-Verify.
    Justifiably bloggers should be either criticized for their anti-sovereignty stand, or praised for informing the unaware public of the taxpayers money needed to fund a 2009-2010 Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Rewarding the millions already illegally squatting here, with the costs to support families, children and those kin who will come here through sponsorship. THEN THE MILLIONS MORE WHO HAVE HEARD THE CALL FOR AMNESTY AND RUSH TO GET HERE FROM POOR NATIONS, BEFORE THE NEW LAW MATERIALIZES?

    House Judiciary Committee’s Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) wrote an op-ed for the Washington Times today He stated that the Washington Times had slammed the Obama Administration for hardened enforcement. While the opposite reaction came from the open border advocates saying there was too much enforcement. However Rep. Smith determined the opposite? This is his statement:-

    * Rescinding of the “no-match” rule that prevents the Social Security Administration from contacting employers when a new hires name and social security number don’t match their records. “Without this protection, many employers will continue to employ individuals they know are illegal and are taking jobs that should go to citizens and legal residents,” Smith said.
    * Repeal of REAL ID in lieu of PASS ID, which makes it easier for illegal aliens to obtain a driver’s license. “This makes it easier for illegal immigrants to stay in the country. And it can provide terrorists with a legitimate ID – as we saw with the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists, who between them obtained 30 driver’s licenses and ID cards,” Smith said.
    * Lack of funding for an airport biometric exit system that is part of a DHS proposal to monitor when foreign visitors leave the country. “40 percent of all 12 million to 20 million illegal immigrants in the United States entered the country legally but overstayed their visas. This program will show who did not leave the country when they should have,” Smith said.
    * Restricted the 287(g) program by limiting the ways local law enforcement officials can help federal immigration enforcement officials.
    * No funding for border fence, which was required by the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
    * Signing the CHIP bill making it easier for illegal aliens to get health care.
    * Reduced work site enforcement by shifting the focus away from the illegal workers and onto the businesses that hire them.
    * Allow states to provide in-state tuition to illegal aliens even though it violate federal law.

    Reading the Washington Times indicates to me, that they are pro illegal immigration, that is not in the American workers interest. They have consistently reacted to any enforcement of laws. They are obviously adverse to any immigration restriction, as the majority of the national press have indicated to us. Unlike the rural media who do not condone DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s rush to OVERPOPULATION through another BLANKET AMNESTY? Grade your Senator of Congressman/Woman on NUMBERSUSA website. Call them and reprimand them for approving another AMNESTY or anything else at 202-224-3121. The people of America have been blindsided to long and must become more involved. We all no by now we cannot trust our government anymore to do the right thing for all of us. To survive we must fight back or financially–SINK. Washington is truly a corrupt place, where taxpayers money is the bargaining chip. Read all at JUDICIAL WATCH, CAPSWEB, ALIPAC, AMERICAN PATROL & THE DARK SIDE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
