Hey Obama

Remember me? I'm one of those small town Pennsylvanians - you know - the bitter ones?

I live in a Pa town of about 497 people. Small enough for you? The surrounding Township has another 500 or so people. Most of us, me included, have carry permits and mini-arsenals at home. Many of us attend church services weekly or at least as often as we are able. A lot of us are anti-illegal immigration, but not for the reasons you suggest.

We don't cling to guns or religion or anti-illegal immigration because we are bitter about job losses. Sure, some are bitter about the dearth of jobs in Western PA, but that bitterness isn't what causes us to cling to guns or religion or anything else. No, if bitterness comes into the equation at all it is because the government, people like Clinton, Obama, Pelosi, and their ilk are constantly suggesting that our guns are bad or religion doesn't have its place in a free society or that we should turn a blind eye to illegal immigration because they have.

Small town Pennsylvanians like many Americans are bitter that the government, and Dems in particular, are continuously chipping away at our freedoms. "No you can't have that handgun because you could get hurt" or "You don't have a say because you are Christian and Christians are bad" or "Your law abiding, self sufficient relative can't come live here in the U.S. lawfully because so many live here unlawfully." Here is my bitterness.

My bitterness is aimed at Dems and at the government who thinks it is ok to tell me how to raise my child, how to discipline my child, how to hunt, fish, work, drive, when to see a doctor, who I can sell my property to, how many guns I can buy, when I can buy guns or to whom I can sell them, to which school I should send my kid - or that is ok to tell me that once I do send my kid to school, I don't have a say in who teaches him, that teachers here making 70,000 a year can go on strike so they don't have to spend 10 a month for insurance. I can go on. Oh, and there is more. I'm bitter because my aunt who wanted to live here lawfully, was told it would take 10-12 years - she is 63. She doesn't have 10-12 years to wait. But my taxes pay for illegals seeking medical treatment and going to public schools.

I'm bitter because I don't have a say. I'm bitter because the choice for President is two communists and a communist disguised as an idiot. I'm bitter because I hear asshats telling me we are fighting a war for oil but I just paid $3.40/gallon for my gas. I'm bitter because my religion is constantly excoriated while I have to pay lip service to muslims because it is PC.

I'm bitter because no matter how hard I work, how long I work, how much I make, nearly 40% of my pay goes to some government in taxes. Yep! 40%. I did the math. Local taxes, State taxes, property taxes, school taxes, Federal Taxes, medicare, social security and that doesn't include the sales taxes I pay, which likely bring the percentage up even more. I'm bitter because I am the so called rich that the Dems are always bitching about. Yet this weekend I couldn't afford to buy a gallon of milk except on a credit card.

I'm bitter because I'm looking at the prospect of universal healthcare. You know, the kind in Europe? The kind where if you have an elective surgery scheduled, you will never get it done. The kind where if you have a history of mental illness or depression in your background the government can take your child from you? The kind where you stand in line for any doctor because the good doctors have left for better opportunities.

I'm bitter because jack-off Messiah wannabes are telling me that I am bitter. Do you know why there are no jobs in Western PA? Because we sold them to the chinese, or the mexicans. It is cheaper to make the same goods elsewhere so the plants left. Steel mills throughout Western PA shut down because the unions wouldn't bend and it was cheaper to do it elsewhere. It wasn't the government it was the unions. It wasn't the government, it was American's willingness to buy a cheaper product made in another country.

I am bitter because Obama can spout racist and bigotted statements or can disassociate himself from his racist and bigotted pastor without anyone calling him to the carpet. I am bitter because I am a forgotten minority. The Hapa, the half and half. I'm supposed to be thrilled that half and half is running for president, instead I'm sickened.

I am bitter.

But listen to this B. Hussein Obama - I will go from bitter to enraged if you take my right to my gun from me. I will go from bitter to enraged if you strike out at my religion. I will go from bitter to enraged if you force an illegal immigrant upon me.

I won't vote for you because you pointed out that indeed I am bitter. I won't vote for you because you are a communist. You are a bigot. You are a wolf in sheeps clothing. I won't vote for you - not in spite of being bitter - but because I am!

I'm glad I ain't B. Hussein Obama. Crap, I'd love to hear you lay it on Hillary.(since you were up).

Send me an Oddybobo for president sticker... I'll buy it and fly it.
