"Can't make this up!" Obama's latest fund raising letter.

Latest email letter from Obama. The below is as unedited as it is unbelievable that anyone could buy into it. Enjoy....

Subject: How the sequester affects Little Bo Peep.

Organizing for Action

Dear Little Bo Peep--

Prepare yourself for job layoffs, reduced access to early education, slower emergency response, slashed health care, and more people living on the street.

This Friday is the final deadline for congressional Republicans to stop disastrous automatic spending cuts (known as the "sequester") that will hurt everyday Americans -- including you.

These budget cuts will take a sledgehammer to the budget, and indiscriminately cut critical programs vital to economic growth and middle class families.

If Congress fails to act, we'd see budget cuts pretty much across the board to critical services that teachers, first responders, seniors, children, and our men and women in uniform rely on every day.

It sounds bad because it is. And with all these cuts on the line, why are congressional Republicans refusing to budge?

Because to do so, they'd have to close tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires, oil companies, vacation homes, and private jet owners. I'm not kidding.

It's on each of us to speak up. Share what these budget cuts could mean to you -- or someone you know -- today. Congress needs to hear it.

President Obama has offered a balanced plan to reduce our deficit, asking the wealthy to pay their fair share so that we can protect programs that are incredibly important for working and middle-class Americans.

But congressional Republicans so far are refusing to compromise.

Here are some of the consequences if Congress fails to act by Friday:

-- 10,000 teachers would be laid off, $400 million would be cut from Head Start, the program that makes sure at-risk preschoolers are ready for kindergarten, and 70,000 kids would be kicked out of the early-education program completely.

-- The budget for firemen and other first responders to react when natural disasters strike would be cut by $35 million.

-- Nutrition programs that help make sure seniors don't go hungry would be cut by $43 million.

-- A program that helps provide housing for the formerly homeless, including many veterans, would be shuttered, putting them at risk of going back on the street.

-- A number of programs that help the most vulnerable families and children would be slashed -- including the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children dropping 600,000 women alone.

Right now, each of us has a responsibility to step up and make sure Congress hears our voices.

Whether you'd be directly affected by these sequester cuts, or whether they'd affect a senior, veteran, or teacher you know, please share what they mean to you:

Let's keep the pressure on congressional Republicans to do the right thing.

Thanks,

It's really talking about

Obamacare.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Unbelievable!

that so many will hear this and believe it.

I'd love to see that commercial with the guy and the little kids ("Strap a cheetah to her back") asking them where to make budget cuts.

My guess is that they will come up with more sensible ideas than "First Responders"

Also since we are cutting "First responders" we had all better go out and buy a gun to protect ourselves.

nothing about cutting back on

nothing about cutting back on the drone strikes or the CIA black sites

Indeed. Nah, that sort of (non-)cuts, not their problem.

Translated: Attention all

Translated:

Attention all government persons benefiting from fleecing the American people. Government revenues are under direct assault. I hereby declare a state of national emergency exists and declare war on the right not to be taxed without consent.

Friends, I do not need to remind you our very existence as human energy sucking vampiric parasites is at stake. If we lose this war we will have no choice but to get real jobs and actually do something productive. Worse, we will be forced to perform work which helps our fellow man.

I urge everyone to immediate action.

The PERFECT COMMUNIST letter to one's fellow LEECHES.

The PERFECT COMMUNIST letter to one's fellow LEECHES.

That's directly coming from the COMMUNIST DIALECTIC MOLD they've been using for, like... what? ... about a hundred years or so, now.

Few people realize it, but communists, socialists, and other collectivists, are VERY CONSERVATIVE (in a deranged way, I can gladly grant that) as a matter of fact.

They are, indeed, VERY FAITHFUL to their good old bunch of gross lies for the attention of the useful idiots.
