    I couldn't find any other section to put this, so I will post it here. I snoped it, and it was not found to be false. This kind of spells it out to young people.

    Letter from Granddad:

    John is 63 years old and owns his own business. He is a
    life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next
    year is now all but gone. With the stock market crashing and
    all the new taxes coming his way, John knows he will be
    working for a good number more years.

    John has a Granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad.
    She drives a late model car, wears all the latest fashions,
    and also likes going out and eating out a lot.

    Ashley
    campaigned hard for Obama, and after he won the election she
    made sure her Grandfather (and all other Republican family
    members) received more than an earful on how the world is
    going to be a much better place now that Obama won the election.

    Ashley recently found herself short of cash and cannot pay
    her bills, again. As she has done many other times in the
    past, she e-mailed her Grandfather asking for some financial
    help. Here is his reply:

    "Sweetheart,

    I am replying to your request for more money. Ashley, you
    know I love you dearly and am sympathetic to your financial
    plight. Unfortunately, times have changed. With the election
    of President Obama, your Grandmother and I have had to set
    forth a bold new economic plan of our own...the 'Ashley
    Economic Plan'. Let me explain. Your grandmother and I are
    highly productive, wage-earning tax payers. As you know, we
    have lived a comfortable life and in return have forgone
    many things like fancy vacations, luxury cars, etc. We have
    worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But
    this plan has changed. Your president is significantly
    raising our personal and business taxes. He says it is so he
    can give our hard earned money to other people. Do you know
    what this means, Ashley? It means less income for us. Less
    income means we must cut back on many business and personal
    expenditures. One example is, we were forced to let go of
    our receptionist today. You know her. She always gave you
    candy when you visited my office. Did you know she worked
    for us for the past 18 years? I can't afford her anymore.

    That is a taste of the business side. Some personal economic
    affects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other
    than you. You know very well that over the years your
    grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in
    cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts,
    etc., etc. By your vote, you have chosen another family over
    ours for help. Judging from your Email requesting more
    money, I recommend you call 202-456-1111. That is the direct
    telephone number for the White House. You yourself
    repeatedly told me I was foolish vote Republican. You said
    Mr. Obama is going to be the people's president and is going
    to help every American live a better life. Based upon
    everything you have told me and things we heard from him as
    he campaigned, I am sure Mr. Obama will be happy to send a
    check or transfer money into your checking account. Have him
    call me for the transaction and account numbers, which by
    now I know by heart.

    Perhaps you now can understand what I have been saying for
    all my life: those who vote for the president should
    consider what the impact of an election will be on the
    nation as a whole, and not just be concerned with what they
    can get for themselves (welfare, etc.). What Obama voters
    don't seem to realize is all of the "government's" money he
    is 'redistributing' to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying
    Americans (deemed "less fortunate") comes from tax money
    collected from income tax-paying families. Remember how you
    told me, "Only the richest of the rich will be affected"?
    Guess what, honey? Because of our business, your Grandmother
    and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich. On
    paper, it might look that way. But in the real world, we are
    far from it. But, as you said while campaigning for Obama,
    some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of
    America can prosper.. You understand what that means, right?
    It means that raising taxes on productive people results in
    them having less money. Less money for everything, including
    granddaughters.

    Congratulations on your choice for "change". For future
    reference, I encourage you to attempt to add up the total
    value of the gifts and money you've received from us over
    the years, and compare it to what you expect to get over the
    next four years from Mr. Obama.

    Remember, we love you dearly... but from now on you'll need
    to call the number referenced above when you need help.

    Good luck, sweetheart.
    Love,
    Grampa.

    PS: How was your recent trip to Jamaica? I have never been
    there but I hear it is lovely this time of year."

    1. snopes doesn'thave it in their site at all as far as I can see.... so your saying you "snoped it and it wasn't found to be false" is misleading at best, dishonest at worst.

    2. you didn't provide a link

    3. what ignorant trash.... you should be embarrassed posting it anywhere. and if you want to know where it belongs, you can try "flame". or "conspiracies" or maybe even "humor".

    "John is 63 years old and owns his own business. He is a life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next year is now all but gone. With the stock market crashing and all the new taxes coming his way, John knows he will be working for a good number more years."

    One can read this a number of ways. John is a nitwit if nearing retirement he was still in risky securities. If 63 he can collect social security, and if retiring why would his taxes be high? John and the poster of John's idiocy are both idiots.

    Notice he doesn't complain about HOW his retirement got killed and WHO was President and Congress for 6 of the last 8 years as his retirement was getting killed.

    Hey, for all you nut job right wingers, REPUBLICANS were in charge and killed this economy and REPUBLICANS were in charge when 9/11 hit. Take some responsibility

    I think my dad lost the bulk of his retirement a few months before Obama became President, like everyone else.

    He owns his own business, and has been investing in the stock market all of his working life. The stock market has been trashed, and he can no longer retire with a comfortable income as he had planned so he needs to work a few more years to get passed the Obama tax scheme and hope that the stock market comes back to life so his securities and investments are once again making a profit. Obviously, you don't have an understanding of the stock market or the retirement system of the investment programs or you wouldn't make such an ignorant statement. Social security may give John about a thousand dollars a month. Could you live on that? Again, you are making really dumb statements.
    However, the point of this whole post was to make it clear that young people in the United States think that Obama is the saviour, and that is why they voted for him. Obfviously, he is not leading our country into anything but bankruptsy, and these kids thought he knew how to save us.


    You DID NOT provide a link when asked. You violated the TOS of the USMB. Thread Closed.
