A Friends Letter

September 9, 2008

As many of you know I pretty much stay away from politics but when I received this letter from a good friend of mine I felt it deserved to be aired on the blog for all to see. This gentleman has convictions and isn’t afraid to voice them to anyone no matter the race. He’s an Air Force veteran and an honorable man. I’m glad to call him my friend!

I was listening to Obama today and he wants us to sacrifice and not spend money. Sheesh!! What money? He wants me to sacrifice more than I am already! Why not ask the auto CEO’s and oil company CEO’s who get the multi-million dollar bonuses every year, that’s right bonus. I have been on a fixed income for ten years now and I get exactly $180.00 more now than in 1998, Gasoline prices have, well you know about that. I am sick and tired of politicians telling me to sacrifice and work harder for a better America. Obama made me so mad when he said it was beyond his pay scale to know when life begins, what a cop-out. The race issue is being used against black people and most of us don’t see it. Just because he is black is not the reason to vote that man into office. He has to have an agenda, he has to have merit, he has to be able to stand up like a man say what he means and not say what people want him to say. I am so tired of Obama, you hear me, tired! It takes such a small mind to vote for a candidate solely on his color. I remember a time when black people were all going to vote for Rev. Jackson to be president. What a catastrophe that would have been! I feel so ashamed when I see the news clips on the OJ verdict. Here we are as a race cheering for a guilty man just because he is black. It is a shame that we have been deprived of justice for so long that we cannot recognize it.Soon there will be no America. . Black people that I know tell me I am a traitor to my race well so be it I would rather be a traitor to my race than a traitor to my country. Every time they play the Star Spangled banner in the Olympics I sing it loudly because it is the greatest song that I know. I would rather be born in America than any country in the whole blamed world. Thank you to whoever brought my ancestors to these shores. I just want to be treated on my merit as a man and not mistreated because my skin is not white. I am a man first and a black man second. God bless you, my friend and God bless America!!

    Did you see the video LawDog posted?
    If you didn’t, make sure to watch it all the way to the end. I get chills every time I see it.

    It just goes to show you, color matters not with respect to character and integrity. Mr. Horace pointed this out by showing his own strong character and integrity.

    That was well said, sir, and I appreciate your service to our country!

    Michael,

    Thanks very much sir! I was really impressed with what he wrote and how he stands up for what he believes in. I just had to put that one on the blog:-)
    I’ll pass along your comment to him. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.

    Many thanks,
    Phil
