Subject: FW: FYI - We're Moving FInally - and up in the world,too!

Dear President Obama:  
 I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico and I would like to ask you to assist me. 
 We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. Into Mexico , and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements. 
 We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. 
 I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I'm on my way over? 
 Please let him know that I will be expecting the following: 
 1. Free medical care for my entire family. 
 2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not. 
 3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English. 
 4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers. 
 5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history. 
 6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school. 
 7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch. 
 8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services. 
 9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico , but, I don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn local traffic laws. 
 10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer. 
 11. I plan to fly the U.S. Flag from my house top, put U S. Flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.
 12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start. 
 13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy. 
 14. I want to receive free food stamps. 
 15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies. 
 16. I'll need Income tax credits so although I don't pay Mexican Taxes, I'll receive money from the government. 
 17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov't pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car. 
 18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement. 
 I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. From Mexico. I am sure that President Calderon won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely. 
 Thank you so much for your kind help. You're the man!!!

Subject: FW: Letter from Grandpa

*John  G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He's a life-long Republican  and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated.

With  the stock market crashing and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has  a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barak Obama.

After  the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other
Republican  family  members) received a big  I- told-you-so earful on  how the world  is  going  to be a much better place now that her party is  taking over.

Having  lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash  and
cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse.  Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her  grandfather asking for some  financial help. Here is his reply:


I received your  request for assistance.  Ashley, you know I love you dearly and  I'm 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 Empowerment Plan."   Let me explain.

Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning  tax payers. We  have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had  the  fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc. We have  worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan  has  changed.        Your president is raising our personal and business taxes  significantly.  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 for  us, and we must cut back  on many business and personal expenses.   You know the  wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for   more than  23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you
came over to visit?  I had to let her go last week. I can't afford to pay her  salary and  all of the  government mandated taxes that go with having  employees.  Your grandmother  will now work 4 days a week to answer

phones, take orders and handle the books. We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even  more income to Wal-Mart.
I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer  be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this  morning.  He already knows about it and he's upset because he will  have to give  up skydiving  and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey  the polar  bears.    That's just the business side of things. Some personal  economic
effects 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. But by your vote, you have  chosen to help others  –  not at your expense -- but at our expense.
If you need money now  sweetheart, I recommend you call 202-456-1111.  That  is the direct phone number for the White House. You yourself told me how  foolish it is to 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 on everything you've told me, along with all the promises we heard  during the campaign, I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me  for the account number which I memorized years ago.
Perhaps  you can now understand what I've been saying all my  life:   those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves.. What Obama supporters don't seem to realize is all  of the money he is  redistributing  to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans  (the so-called  "less fortunate") comes from tax-paying families.
Remember  how you told me, "Only the richest of the rich will  be  affected"?  Well guess what, honey? Because we own a 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.
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.
I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over. 

I have no money to give you now.

So, congratulations on your choice for "change." For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash

you have received from us, just since you went off to college, andcompare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next4 (or 8) years.
I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the  gift of our hearts.
Remember, we love you dearly....but from now on  you'll need to call the number mentioned above. Your "Savior"  has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it  from him.
Good luck,  sweetheart.

Subject: FW: Health care



WOW!! Let's hear it for the Judge! 

I read an excellent article in our local paper, the River Cities Tribune, published in Marble Falls , TX.  It was written by our former county judge, David Kithil.  He voiced his opposition to HB 3200, and gave EXACT SPECIFICS, to include page and paragraph in the bill on why this Health Bill is BAD. 

Thomas Edwards, editor of the River Cities Tribune, was contacted to get legal permission to quote David Kithil's comments. Permission was granted, so here are excerpts from the article, giving EXACT pages and paragraphs in the bill and why it is so bad. 

You can forward this to all of your email contacts.  I think Judge Kithil hits everything right on the head,and the opposition you may encounter cannot argue over these points: 


"I have reviewed selected sections of the bill and find it unbelievable that our Congress, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, could come up with a bill loaded with so many wrong-headed elements. 

H ow many of us believe our federal government can manage a new program any better than the bankrupt Medicare program or the 
under funded Social Security program? 

"Both Republicans and Democrats are equally responsible for the financial mess of those two programs. 

"I am opposed to HB 3200 for a number of reasons.  To start with, it is estimated that a federal bureaucracy of  more than 150,000 new employees will be required to administer HB3200.  That is an unacceptable expansion of a government that is already too intrusive in our lives.  If we are going to hire 150,000 new employees, let's put them to work protecting our borders, fighting the massive drug problem and putting more law enforcement/firefighters out there." 

NOW, here comes the good stuff: 

JUDGE KITHIL continued:  "Other problems I have with this bill include: 

** Page 50/section 152:  The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally. 

** Page 58 and 59:  The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts. 

** Page 65/section 164:  The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as  the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN). 

** Page 203/line 14-15:  The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax.  (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?) 

** Page 241 and 253:  Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees. 

** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age. 

** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception. 

** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations.  Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. 

** Page 429,  line 13-25:  The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.

HAD ENOUGH????  Judge Kithil then goes on: 

" Finally, it is specifically stated this bill will not apply to members of Congress.  Members of Congress are already exempt from the Social Security system and have a well-funded private plan that covers their retirement needs.  If they were on our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick "fix" to make the plan financially sound for the future." 

Honorable David Kithil 
Marble Falls , Texas

All of the  above should give you all the point blank ammo you need to support your opposition to Obamacare.   Please send this information on to all your email contacts.
