Evil Makes A Better Foe

eBay exposes a funny side of society. I'm on my third attempt to sell a Babolat Aero Storm I bought a few years ago. The first two auctions ended with buyers getting a fair deal, but defaulting and never sending me payment. This has been going on for months. I wonder about the thoughts that go through a person's head as they bid sixty bucks on a used tennis racquet. Do they impulsively bid without knowing what they are bidding on? For the sake of mankind's destiny, I hope that's the case. I hope the latest buyer thought he was getting a real deal on the newer Aero Storm model and only discovered that this is the 2009 model after he won the auction and just saying screw you, I'm not paying for that. I'd rather fight willing deceit than plain ignorance; evil makes a better foe.

An Open Letter to President Obama

Lou Pritchett is a former Vice President of Procter & Gamble. He retired in 1989, wrote a book on business strategy in 1995 and sent the letter below to the New York Times in 2009. Snopes confirmed its authenticity later that year. Not surprisingly, given their complicity in Hussein Obama's efforts to re-make America, the New York Times never published the letter. Despite three years of news, vetting and revelations, every point remains right on the mark. I wish I had written it myself. Thanks Lou.


Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything You do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, Conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett
