Must-Read: Texas Single Mom's Viral 'Thank You' Letter to Obama

A single mother in Texas by the name of Yolanda Burroughs-Vestal has written a ‘thank you’ letter to President Obama that just demands to be read:
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 you 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 too expensive? I have.

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

Psychopathic and sociopathic personalities are attracted to

the seats of power.

When they capture those seats they proceed to feed their own pathology, living like kings, pretending they are aristocrats, and generally destroying what they touch because deep down they are hollow.

They create poverty by enacting laws to favor the few at the expense of the many, and then pretend to solve poverty they created by plundering the middle class and using the proceeds to bribe the poor to vote for them. And is more than a willing pool of fools to bow down to them and vote them in, again, and again, and again.

Unless the collectivists segment of the population comes to their senses, there will only be one choice and that is civil war.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

The POTUS can not now or never can do anything to help

anybody , he has only the power you give him. You have the power within yourself to help yourself.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

could care less

Label Jars, Not People!

well, yes, she's angry--

and I can relate.

But, she didn't say what the president had or hadn't done--

she did mention obamacare, but she didn't talk about how she couldn't afford it--just that she couldn't afford insurance, so it's very vague--

she just told him he was the worst president. I guess she got her feelings off her chest, and my heart goes out to her--

but the fact is that the letter wasn't effective, and Obama isn't going to care anyway; none of them will care.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Blaming the muppet for what

Blaming the muppet for what the one's with their hand up is his ass do is useless.

Those controlling our government, offshoring our industry and destroying our currency, leveling our once great (now increasingly ignorant) middle and working class down to the level of every other country instead of setting an example for other to rise to, that is the crime we are all letting perpetrate each day. I don't care if you put a black face it or a white face, GOP or DNC it matters not any more.

About the Elites:

"The justifications for empires are characteristically unexamined to conceal an unflattering truth: they are all fueled by a base, animalistic craving to dominate other nations and other people for the sake of domination."

Gun Control:
"In the mindset of control freaks of the socialist world view who believe arrogantly enough that they are to be the ruling class and tell every one else what to do, it kind of goes without saying that if they are going to pull that off they sure don’t want us ignorant boobs shooting back at them.” Larry Pratt – Gun Owners of America

I hope that letter gets read by every member of Congress,

every wannabe president; every clueless, free riding person all over this hungry, broke, suffering, nation!

Audited? She'll probably have

Sadly, Obama is so good at killing people, (his own words) she

will probably be dead by morning - no doubt.

And her kids will end up in "Child Protective Services" a.k.a. "Child Prostitute Supply-chain."

The really really sick and sad thing isn't that anyone could conceive of this, but rather its very real plausibility.

Drudged it
