Texas Woman’s Viral “THANK YOU” Letter to Obama

Texas Woman’s Viral “THANK YOU” Letter to Obama

As Lana Vestal puts it, she is nothing more than an average American like you and I. But after posting on her Facebook wall a post that received nearly 63,000 shares, she says she is getting messages from all over the country about her rant to President Obama. It’s not just her that feels this way either.

According to Rasmussen, only 30% of voters think the health care system is likely to get better as a result of Obamacare. But most voters (52%) still believe the system will get worse under the new law, while six percent (6%) expect it to stay about the same. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided.

Of course, Lana’s post touches on much more than just Obamacare and the actual ideology of President Barack Obama. While Obama’s campaigning has always touched on the fact that Obama can relate to the lower and middle class of America through his upbringing, it holds little truth.

Yes, the same 48% LIVs who are on the gov’t dole. Coincidence? No, of course not!

Here is Lana’s viral post on Facebook. Let us know in the comments if you agree with her.

Dear President Obama,
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you have done and are doing. You see I am a single Mom located in the very small town of Palmer,Texas. I live in a small rental house with my two children. I drive an older car that I pray daily runs just a little longer. I work at a mediocre job bringing home a much lower paycheck than you or your wife could even imagine living on. I have a lot of concerns about the new “Obamacare” along with the taxes being forced on us Americans and debts your are adding to our country. I have a few questions for you Mr. President.

Have you ever struggled to pay your bills? I have.

Have you ever sat and watched your children eat and you eat what was left on their plates when they were done, because there wasn’t enough for you to eat to? I have.

Have you ever had to rob Peter to pay Paul, and it still not be enough? I have.

Have you ever been so sick that you needed to see a doctor and get medicine, but had no health insurance because it was to expensive? I have.

Have you ever had to tell your children no, when they asked for something they needed? I have.

Have you ever patched holes in pants, glued shoes, replaced zippers, because it was cheaper than buying new? I have.

Have you ever had to put an item or two back at the grocery store, because you didn’t have enough money? I have.

Have you ever cried yourself to sleep, because you had no clue how you were going to make ends meet? I have.

My questions could go on and on. I don’t believe you have a clue what Americans are actually going through and honestly, I don’t believe you care. Not everyone lives extravagantly. While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years, there are so many of us that suffer. Yet, you are doing all you can to add to the suffering. I think you are a very selfish and cold hearted man, who does not care what is best for the people he was elected by (not by me) to represent, but more so out for the glory of your name attached to history. So thank you Mr. President, thank you for pushing those of us that are barely staying afloat completely under water and driving America into the ground. You have made your mark in history, as the absolute worst and most hated president of the United States. God have mercy on your soul!

Sincerely,
Yolanda Vestal
Average Americ

Obama hates who he is and what he is.

He is a true pshycopath, bordering on insanity.

He has decided that it is Americans who should be punished for his personal agonies.

You might hope... but the DEA is trying to make your “pain pills” some of the hardest to get medicine by attempting to switched regular hydrocodone to a controlled schedule II narcotic. Of course, it’s for the “safety” of the masses.

You are an optimist if you think 48% is about right for the American slobbering idiocy rate. After all we elected someone hellbent on dismantling our country as we know it and transforming it into something...else. He even told us so.

Sorry, Barky's FDA is placing additional restriction on pain pills. Lower power pain pills: Hydrocodone/Vicodin/Lortab, will now have greater restrictions on the perscriptions, similar to those of Oxycontin.

No NARCO for you!

Maybe, but I’m sure he knows he has always been treated with the soft bigotry of lowered expectation; he is still regarded by many as just an incompetent affirmative action token.

Oh I think that Obama does have a clue what Americans are actually going through, but actually likes it.

Really. I think he is a sadist. He hates this country and everything it stands for. That is why he and his administration have taken a perverse pleasure in ripping off everything from this country that wasn’t nailed down.

Obama would, if it gained him votes, make fun of this woman and her suffering through his proxies. This woman just painted a target on her back along with her family. Wait for it, it’s coming. The more traction this letter gets, the more pressure will build to attack her personally.

Wait for the personal attack on her in the Daily Kos, New York Times, and the Huffington Post. Bill Mahar will invent a new insult especially for her- wishing even greater tragedy on her. They will call her a ‘right winger’. They will blame the Tea Party. They will attack her for being a Christian- or worse a Jew.

They will point out all the suffering that America has dished out and insult anything about America, going back to it’s founding fathers and hold her personally responsible.

Wait for it.

There is a difference between being cold hearted and being so twisted with hatred that he would revel in the suffering of ones he blames for slavery, for world war, for capitalism, for gun ownership, for being anti-muslim.

Wait for it.

It was for this woman and her children he shut down the national parks and let it fall into disrepair. It was for this woman that he killed the coal industry, while handing out Solyndra type deals to his cronies like candied nuts on ‘winter solstice’. It was for this woman that he made sure to insult the veterans and to take away their benefits. It was for this woman he attacked our Military and made very sure that many more came home in coffins or damaged. Then took away their pensions and right to own arms.

He could care less about our history or his place in it. He wants to rewrite it and erase the names of people like this woman. Oh, be sure that he read this letter. They are preparing a response as I type this.

Wait for it.

Stalin Plucked Chicken...

On one occasion, so it was narrated, Stalin called for a live chicken and proceeded to use it to make an unforgettable point before some of his henchmen. Forcefully clutching the chicken in one hand, with the other he began to systematically pluck out its feathers. As the chicken struggled in vain to escape, he continued with the painful denuding until the bird was completely stripped. “Now you watch,” Stalin said as he placed the chicken on the floor and walked away with some bread crumbs in his hand. Incredibly, the fear-crazed chicken hobbled toward him and clung to the legs of his trousers. Stalin threw a handful of grain to the bird, and it began to follow him around the room, he turned to his dumbfounded colleagues and said quietly, “This is the way to rule the people. Did you see how that chicken followed me for food, even though I had caused it such torture? People are like that chicken. If you inflict inordinate pain on them they will follow you for food the rest of their lives.”

I’ve done all the things mentioned by Yolanda. I expect I’ll do them again and that things will get much worse than now. Most of us are that way. We are tapped out and the nation is running out of money. We can’t go on with more than half the country not producing a dang thing and expecting to live like the people who do work and produce. They are going to have to take less, much less.

She is wrong on some counts though. His vacations cost more than most of us will make in 2-4 lifetimes. His golf excursions cost more than most of us will make in 2-4 years.

She is also wrong about him being hated. The drones that are on the take just LOVE him and their number is growing. They are lazy bastards without one shred of honor or dignity. They are the lowest and slimiest of slugs.

I’m not going to invoke or appeal to God as to how obastard is judged. I’m pretty sure he knows just what to do.

I thought all this spreading the wealth was supposed to help Yolanda?

That is how I read it too.

She is correct about Barry being the most hated president. But what does she think the govt. is going to do to fix her troubles?

Now, maybe if the govt. will stop controlling our lives she could get a better job. But it sounds like she wants “big daddy government” to make everything better. Kinda like a liberal.

This was the same technique that Mao Tse Tung used in China. He terrorized the populace. They became his obedient servants. And today he is venerated as a national hero.

I’ve done all the things mentioned by Yolanda.

My main meal this week is a PBJ sandwich, soup, and an orange. As I sit and contemplate how the holiday season is going to play out, how much work will be coming through the doors, how to make payroll, etc. This minor sacrifice this week will mean a holiday meal on the table this time next month.

I just hope & pray that the family understands that sometimes the things we need to be grateful for is the roof over our heads, heat, and a meal every day.

The extravagances of the 0bama family, which will be on full display this holiday, to a Nation suffering under the weight of their taxation is sinful.

My father grew up during the depression. He had hardly any food and holes in his shoes. He had to put cardboard in the shoes to keep out the bitter cold from the Ohio winters.

And I am certain he NEVER wrote a letter to the President and/or expected the government to fix his woes.

We need a better President so we can get as many of the freeloaders off of the government welfare rolls.

What we DO NOT need is a better President so single mothers can get their problems solved by getting government “help”.

I am sorry for her plight, but I sure as hell don’t want money taken away from me and mine to give away.

Barry is a piece of garbage. That is a fact. But why do we have to whine like liberals to get the point across? Writing a letter like that just feeds into the socialist narrative.

I can almost hear the liberal response to the letter.....
“See...this poor woman needs help! Those mean republicans want her to starve! We need to raise taxes to help this woman!”
