Dear Mr. President

According to you meatheads in Washington, we need to cut expenses. Also according to continuing investigations, we are a major source of financing for the Taliban through bribes to allow supplies to get through. And many US military are reluctant to upset the systems because it keeps the beans & bullets arriving where needed.

To a normal person, this would be a clarion call to end your shitty little war in Afghanistan. Most Americans do not want to support the Taliban when they try to kill our family and friends. Most Americans do want to save Medicare and Social Security because it does save our family and friends.

Do you see a pattern here?

You sure have got yourself in a fine pickle. After ignoring jobs, jobs and more jobs which is all people want you and the Republicans to work on, you are less than a year away from the re-election campaign and on the verge of pushing the economy into a second Depression. Either you fail to raise the debt limit which pushes the economy right into it or you get your "Grand Bargain" and take $3 Trillion out of the economy which removes the last feeble support there was and we all slip back into Depression. Danmit sir, you are one hell of a negotiator.

Perhaps you should turn your efforts to negotiating a long term continuation of your shitty little war in Afghanistan. With your mad skilz we could have everyone home by Christmas and save half the spending you want to cut.

Whaddaya say Mr. President? About time for you to earn that Peace Prize.

Dear Mr. President,

I was just reading about your efforts to make our presence in Iraq permanent. This is a hugely bad idea and you can believe that the cement heads in the Pentagon and State are pushing their own interests over those of the nation. Some may say that after 8 years the Iraqi security forces still need training. If this is so, they can spend some of their oil money to hire Blackwater or one of the other private mercenary armies to do so. You have a whole lot of nation building to do in your own country, you can't afford to waste US lives and treasure halfway around the world. This would also be a good time to end your shitty little war in Afghanistan. All the same reasons for leaving Iraq apply to Afghanistan. The alternative would be to return your Nobel Peace Prize because you failed to work for peace.

When you meet with the Dalai Lama, do you think about there being two Nobel Peace Prize laureates in the room but only he deserved his? When you call for shared sacrifice do you have trouble not laughing, knowing that neither you nor the old white men you are working with will be making any sacrifice. Nor will the people who have bought you.

You just gave a Medal of Honor to a brave man who sacrificed his hand to save his buddies fighting in your shitty little war in Afghanistan. Would you or anybody in Washington make one tenth that level of sacrifice for anybody but your self?

Now that research has shown that the projected shortfall of Medicare over the next 75 years is 1/4 the amount wasted in Iraq and Afghanistan, you have a clear reason to end your shitty little war in Afghanistan, bring everyone home from Iraq and stop trying to kill the only effective health insurance plan this country has. I swear it is very disconcerting to watch you get giggly with delight at the thought of slashing Medicare and Social Security. In addition to the millions of Americans you intend to harm, it is sad to think that the only people who would approve of this measure will never, ever vote for a black man or a Democrat.

Now aren't you a right proper evil doer. You, who have the guaranteed best medical care for the rest of your days, sit in a room with a bunch of old white men who also have the guaranteed best medical care for the rest of their days, and scheme how to take away what inadequate medical coverage the seniors of this country still have. Those people who accused you of not being a christian have no idea how right they are. But you are not alone, that same lack of christianity is shared by those you deal in these trumped up negotiations. Jesus said, as you do unto these the least of my people so you do unto me. You and the boys in these meetings say, how much more can we take from these who have the least. All of you wouldn't last a snap in the presence of the Lord.

I am only now realizing how your willingness to continue your shitty little war in Afghanistan and never leave Iraq should have shown me the hollowness of your soul.

Have you heard of Central Falls, RI? The city is about to go bankrupt because they did not properly fund their pension fund. This should be an example to all you political types. When you make a contract with people you have to maintain your end of the deal. Republicans break their word, Americans don't. If the Republicans won't consider tax increases then you have to remove Medicare and Social Security from the table. And if they do agree to revenue increases then you have to replace Medicare & SSI with defense cuts and more tax increases, like the voting public wants you to do.

You often speak of shared sacrifice, how about you publicly offer to slash congressional pensions and put in place a large buy in so you folks can have some skin in the game?

PS: Don't forget to end your shitty little war in Afghanistan and bring home our targets in Iraq.

I see that despite the Republican attempts to pull away the football, you are still going for the Big Deal. Lord knows why you people cocooned in DC think the deficit is important when no one has a job, but if you must continue, please do it with tax hikes and defense cuts.

I didn't vote for you so you could take away my Medicare and Social Security. I voted for you to create an environment that would create jobs. Instead you give tax cuts to people who failed to create jobs. Mr. President, no one ever rewarded me when I failed but if you want to, you have my address.

Speaking of failure, please get us completely out of Iraq and end you shitty little war in Afghanistan now. What part of "going nowhere" is hard for you DC people to understand?
