Let's Tell Obamas We Are Tired
Every day people ask me what they can do to make a difference. I hear from people saying they feel helpless, they ask me what they can do – well I have something you can do. It’s going to take approximately 15 minutes of your time and it will cost you about one dollar. First let me explain the reason for action.
A few weeks ago I wrote a syndicated column entitled “Why Is Michelle Obama So Tired.” (http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/why-is-michelle-obama-so-tired/) Last summer I wrote a syndicated column entitled “Nero In The White House.” (http://www.wnd.com/2011/08/331497/) Both of those columns dealt with the total disregard the Obamas have for the American citizens, and specifically the flamboyant diva lifestyle and contempt displayed by Michelle Obama.
Millions of jobs have been lost, and the jobs that could have been created were not because of Obama’s EPA and NLRB, and his defying a court order instructing him to reopen the Gulf for drilling. Increased fuel prices have increased every aspect of our daily lives from the price of groceries to clothing to being able to afford a modest vacation. Thanks to Obama, we have nearly 50 million people on food stamps, people have not only lost their life savings, but retirement accounts, and millions of homeowners have lost the equity in their homes. And I’m speaking of those who have been able to keep their homes.
Then just over a week ago, continuing their disgraceful disconnect with how difficult it is for the American people – they send their 13 year-old daughter to Mexico for spring break with 12 of her best friends and a 25 man secret service team, plus police support, presidential aircraft, helicopters, ground vehicles, logistical support, cooks, doctors, and additional support staff. The rest of Americans are warned about travel to Mexico, but it was okay for her.
Now, Michelle Obama has taken her daughters to Las Vegas on a “private family trip,” landing and unboarding all of the vehicles etc, so they could stop along the way to take a 10 car caravan to Mount Rushmore. Then it’s on to Vegas and off for California for her daughters to have a private meeting with musician Taylor Swift. Then Michelle is off to play presenter at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles. The Nickelodeon Awards is being used as cover to mask their continued spending and disregard. How many family vacations and private vacations do they need? If they wanted to go to Mount Rushmore, why didn’t they go there instead of going to Mexico and Vail? It’s insulting that they think we are too blind to see what they’re doing.
Folks this is a blind, i.e., a cover designed to shield them from ridicule. Their lives in the White House have been a three year taxpayer funded vacation. We, the taxpayers, have spent upwards of $100 million in total cost for their vacations, trips, shopping sprees, etc. If you are as outraged as I am by the Obamas shameless disregard for how hard the rest of us have it – if you are as outraged by the arrogant and “we’re better than you” attitude of the Obamas, then now is your chance to speak up.
I’m asking for you, and as many patriots as we can reach, to write the White House. That’s right, write the White House. Tell the Obamas that we are tired of their disregard for our difficulty, while they parade around at our expense, behaving like royalty. Tell them you’ve had enough of their over-the-top behavior as we struggle to fuel our vehicles, and put bread and cereal on our tables. Tell them that they were elected to serve, and that all they’ve done was make things worse – play golf, spend our money on lavish vacations and shopping sprees.
Now, listen carefully, what I’m going to say next is very important. Do not, I repeat, do not under any circumstances curse, threaten, or suggest hostility of any kind in any way, shape, or manner. It is important to write them because they ignore phone calls, faxes, and emails, but with a million envelopes – they may not respond, but the message will be clear that we have had it with their disrespect and disregard for us. Will you join me in telling them to stop spending our money? Tell them that they were elected to serve the country, not have a four year world vacation and golf tour.
The White House address is: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20500. You might also consider sending a handwritten letter to your congress person. It is very difficult for them to ignore a few duffle bags of mail. Someone in their office will open and at least skim your mail because they will be afraid of ignoring a check in one of the envelopes.
This is a small step, but it’s a step that will get attention, even if the media ignores it. The question is do we really want to make our voices heard or do we want to continue complaining as we rely on our representatives who ignore us?
