snopes.com ^ | 10/24/10 | Lou Prtchet

Posted on 10/24/2010 7:56:07 PM PDT by Nachum

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 upscale lifestyle and housing with no visable 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 American.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

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 Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys 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

That is a powerful letter. The man has a way with words, and the kind of insight that is becoming increasingly rare.

“We know who rund P @ C”

You are joking, right?

The charge of satanism at P @ C is a classical urban myth.

Dear leader Zer0, you scare me because you are a follower of Saul Alinsky who dedicated a book you likely follow, to Lucifer.

You scare me because many of your czars and aides have been taped stating that they idolize Mao, the world’s worst mass murderer.

You scare me because you seem to hate the United States and you are punishing her for being prosperous.

We know you’re joking, but P&G has a pretty thin skin on the Satan hit. Ask Amway:

Well, said Lou!

Obama is truly scary.

He hates his own country and wants to “fundamentally transform” it into something of his own making.

He is a colossal disgrace and a disaster as leader and president.

April my FRiend, he’s not a wimp. And, remember, courage is the ability to control your fears, not the absence of fear.

As for Obama, my anger is gone, it has been replaced with intense rage.

—9 days to Victory.

Proctor & Gamble is fairly left wing, advertising on soap operas funding left wing campaigns, etc.

I’m iffy on this. Isn’t “snopes” a liberal husband/wife team that kind of have their own leftist agenda? And somewhere on FR while back was a brief Proctor and Gamble tirade. Don’t remember now what that was about, but I still don’t buy P&G products. So even if the P&G letter is true — although Snopes authenticating doesn’t mean a thing except that they got it in an email — why would Snopes go there at all? Maybe the lefty Snopes showing that the lefty P&G is turning on the way lefty Zero.

Thank you for posting that letter. I went to copy and past it and it, for some reason, failed to let me do it.

The Pritchett letter is legit. It dates to right after the inauguration. He's retired from P&G.

The "brief P&G tirade" you refer to concerned somebody "discovering" something that looked vaguely like "666" somewhere in P&G's moon and stars logo.

So far as could be determined, it was just another rumor started by another Amway distributor.

You are now free to buy your Crest, Charmin, Crisco, Tide, Head & Shoulders and Vicks Vapo-Rub, etc. again.

I work as a contractor for P&G and they can be a little to PC in their marketing, but the employees are top notch. The current CEO (Bob McDonald) is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and has impressive credentials.

McDonald was born in Gary, Indiana, and grew up in Chicago. He graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering. At West Point he served as the Brigade Adjutant for the Corps of Cadets and was awarded the Silver Medal from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacturing and Commerce. After graduation, he served as a Captain in the U.S. Army for 5 years, primarily in the 82nd Airborne Division, and earned an MBA from the University of Utah in 1978. Upon leaving the military he received the Meritorious Service Medal.

I've never heard of the 666 and would have dismissed that as a bunch of dumb arses.

Exactly. This guy's preaching to one of the elite class of DILLIGAF! (Do I Look Like I Give A F*ck. And HE doesn't. It's been apparent for awhile now, and nothing anybody says is going to change the mind of a true f*cking maniacle Marxist prick who outright in plain sight hates this country and who has an agenda to have his own way regardless of what anybody even light-years smarter or more worldly than he. This POS is the scourge of our time and I will not stop until he is run out of this country he hates so much if I have to do it myself!!!!

Agreed. I also worked at a P&G facility many moons agone, and the people there were first rate, from the top on down...

P&G is the only company I ever worked for or with where you didn't have to worry about anything but how well you did your job.

Never a hint of politics in hiring or promotions. Only merit.

You won't be alone. Let's all meet obozo at the side door of the White House as he tries to sneak out when he's kicked out. Try him in court, sentence him, and make sure he pays in full for his crimes of treason, for starters.

Make this a-hole suffer for his crimes against the United States of America.

Check out the three curls at the end of the Man in the Moon’s flowing mustache, at the 4-o’clock-to-5-o’clock position on the logo. Easy to see how a dumb-arse who wanted to raise a squawk could find the justification.

This was proven to be untrue. I work for P&G and they are a wonderful company that hires thousands of people. I believe the idiots that started this myth to hurt P&G paid dearly for it.
