"Dear Ms. Pelosi..." (a letter rapidly circulating across the US)

Original post made by Amy, Downtown, on Aug 25, 2009

"I write to you out of utter disdain..."

This letter written my a NC attorney is burning up the ethernet in the eastern US. If you haven't read it, it is worth the read. I wholehearted "second" the attorney's comments. Ms. Pelosi represents the democrat party perfectly...reprehensible, loathsome, and other adjectives unsuitable for this forum.

I encourage you to read this letter.

Amy,

I am not even going to look at the letter considering you SPELLING and GRAMMAR here and your choice of descriptive words.

What is "spreading like wildfire" is the fact that less than 1/3 of Americans identify with the Republican party today and the majority of Americans have a "DISTAIN" towards the behavior and attitude, the lies and deceit and flat out child like behavior of some Conservatives and Republicans that are destroying their credibility and there own party with hasty, belligerent actions and words.

Many of YOU parties VOCAL, DISRUPTIVE, spoiled, angry ranting and behavior is worse than doomsday conspiracy theory fanatics and or children throwing a tantrum.

"This letter written MY a NC attorney is burning up the ethernet in the eastern US."

Hope this letter that's "spreading like wildfire" has been edited and spell checked?

I agree that people like you are doing the exact opposite of what your party needs and will be the demise of your party's future.

I personally know a lot of Repubs that are jumping ship. They were ashamed of the party after eight years of Bush and even more ashamed now.

Back at ya!

Here's what the real thing would look like, the questionnaire sent out to all doctors, hospitals and nursing homes in Nazi Germany, starting in 1939, as part of the T-4 euthanasia program.

Notice their interest in epilepsy, Down's Syndrome, senility, Alzheimer's Disease, Huntington's Disease, schizophrenia, and so on, as well as patients still able to work, versus those who could not.

Panels of SS doctors would review these and if they put an "A " in the "Do Not Mark in this Space" area, that meant "special treatment" (Sonderbehandlung). This is where the Nazis got that euphemism that was applied later to the larger genocide program. Many of the personnel from T-4 later set up death camps and gas chambers in Poland and Russia, like Christian With and Franz Stangl. Walter Rauff, the designer of gassing trucks and buses with the exhaust running into the sealed compartment in the back, also got his start in the T-4 program.

Of course, it was always genocidal from the start, and always prone to expanding its reach. In 1940, for example, Hitler ordered the extermination of ALL Jewish patients in mental hospitals and nursing homes, and the extension of the program to all prisoners in concentration camps too mentally of physically ill to work--under the code name 14f13 Special Treatment.

Obviously, Obama is not planning anything like this, but the Republicans just can't seem to let it go, no matter that they are being very offensive to many people who know the real history of the Holocaust.

Amy,

This is a poorly written letter from an Attorney. First off, any recipient would toss out the letter due to the childlike and vile first paragraph! And you wonder why the Republican Party has gone DOWN Hill rapidly in MAJORITY publican opinion? You are loosing voters.

The Letter:

Dear Ms. Pelosi:
I write to you out of utter disdain! You are as despicable and un-American as the traitor Jane Fonda.
I am a soon to be 65 year-old who has voted in every state and local election since 1966. I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats alike. I have worked on campaigns for both Republicans and Democrats, white and black. I served the country that I love in Vietnam, as my son did in the Middle East. I was awarded two bronze stars. I have been involved in politics since age 6 when my father was campaign manager for a truly great American Congressman, Charles Raper Jonas, who worked for his constituents and his country, and was to be admired, unlike you.
You obviously haven't read the Constitution recently, if ever, the Federalist Papers, or even David McCullough's book on John Adams. You ought to take the time while riding around in your government provided luxury executive jet to do just that. You represent Socialistic and even Marxist principals that our founding fathers tried to avoid when setting out the capitalistic republican form of government represented by our Constitution.
I find it interesting that you and your husband are multi-millionaires with much of your fortune being made as a result of your "public service". You have controlled legislation that has enhanced your husband's investments both on and off shore. At the same time you redistributed the wealth of others. Our system of a free market economy is being destroyed by the likes of you, Harry Reid, and now our President. You ride around in a gulf-stream airplane at the tax payer's expense while criticizing the presidents of companies who produced something for the economy. You add nothing to the economy of the United States; you only subtract therefrom.
I would like to suggest that you return to the city of fruitcakes and nuts and eat your husband's canned tuna and pineapple produced by illegal immigrants and by workers who have been excluded from the protection that 90% of the legal workers in the United States have.
I await your defeat in the next election with glee.
Don't ever use the term "un-American" again for protesters who love this country and are exercising their rights upon which this country was founded. By the way, while I served in the Army, I was spit on by the same type of lunatics who support you and who you probably supported in the 60's and 70's. You are an embarrassment to all of us who served so that you would have the protected right of free speech to call us un-American. But at the same time, I have the right to write you to notify you that I consider you to be un-American, as do the majority of the people of this formerly great country. You are a true disgrace to most of the people who served this country by offering themselves for public service in the United States Congress.
I feel certain your aides will not share this letter with you, but I intend to share it with many.
Sincerely,
Dennis L. Guthrie

Margaret:
You are right about my pathetic preamble to this letter. I'd like to blame it on too much espresso and too little double-checking of typos, etc. The preface I wrote does not bode well upon my doctoral level education from Northwestern in Evanston. Nevertheless, the letter in the link above speaks for itself.

Nancy Pelosi is truly disgusting and makes me embarrassed to say I am from California. I travel frequently and when people ask where I am from and I say California they just smirk and ask about our wacko leaders including Queen Nancy. I would not even mind the evil ideas and motives she has but cannot look beyond how stupid she is and how stupid we are for having someone like her. I suspect her days are numbered and bring on Carly Fiorina someone who is qualified and has a brain.

Linda- Would you please list which Pelosi policies and positions you disagree with and your alternative to those policies and positions? Has her governance directly affected you? If so, which policies have affected you?

Speaking of Carly Fiorina - Really? You must not have worked for HP during her tenure there.

Linda - I agree with Curious - if you want to know what Carly Fiorina is like, just ask HP employees who worked for her. Yes, she does have a brain, and she is very quick on her feet and dresses nicely so makes a good appearance; but she was widely loathed at HP and used bribes to make the Compac merger happen.

She acts the queen bee that she believes she is. I've never liked Barbara Boxer, but she's got my vote if it's a choice between her and Carly - almost any other Republican going against Boxer would get my vote.

Barnton,

your post is great! if you just substitute he for she and Obama for Carly you sound like you are describing the same person. On serious not I have met and given presentations to both Boxer and Carly. Carly is by far and away the sharper of the two. Boxer was indifferent and did not seem interested in anything other than a photo op. Not sure about how Carly would perform as our representative but have seen Boxer and would vote for a change.
