Dear Mr. President,
How you doing? I hope things are well with you and your family. Sure is getting cold here in the eastern states, isn’t it? I saw some pictures of the White house the other day. Looks like you folks are ready for a great Christmas…oops, I mean holiday season.
Things here are not so bad either. I am grateful for the social security disability I get to live on. Shucks, what with my wife’s social security benefits added to my disability, we take in $1,800.00 a month. We can make it because we live within our means. Christmas…rats, I said it again…well, this holiday will be especially bright for us because God…oops, my higher power has been so good to us. We were able to share a little of what we have with others less fortunate than us because He…uh, you know who I am talking about, has seen that we don’t go lacking bread.
I see that you, along with your cronies might send five billion dollars to the Palestinian folks way over there in the Middle East. I sure hope they don’t suck it into their ever growing Swiss bank accounts, again. I don’t mind my hard earned tax dollars helping those less fortunate than I, but I am concerned that that five billion won’t make life here in the U S of A any better for us who give up so much so you can play Santa to folks who don’t believe in the giving spirit of Santa or the God this country was founded on. Yep…that God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
I sure hope this letter doesn’t offend anyone. Golly, it’s so hard to be politically correct when one sees their country’s sweat equity going into the pockets of those who use it to murder our volunteer service men and women and the good people we used to support in the small areas of the Middle East.
I just got charged $110.00 for a 30-day supply of my heart medicine because my insurance has hit the donut hole, what ever that is. Hum…Wonder if those Palestinian leaders know what that donut hole is?
Well, don’t let me cause you any grief this Christmas…my, it’s so hard not to say that, I mean this holiday season. Say, to what does that holiday season refer to anyway? It sure can get confusing today.
Mr. President, I sure hope you and the misses have a great………………….(fill in the blank) and don’t worry about the likes of me. We have a Father who sees to our needs. Fact is, He is sending His Son to gather us up for a real festival in Heaven, any time now. Wish you could make it.
Got to go for now. Be blessed, or…whatever.

Be blessed, or…whatever. I love it ! When we try to be politically correct at this time of year we realize just how stupid it all really sounds and is. Hope to visit your chur_h if we ever get to Va. If it's still legal, that is... May God stretch your SSD...and awaken your readers... Thank God, He's comming back soon... PS: if this letter lands you in jail I'll take it as my call to get back into the prison ministry... Merry C_r_s_m_s to you and yours and, "Be blessed, or…whatever."
Aha! Good job. I chuckled through the entire letter. So, are you going to send it? Too bad there's no way to make sure he would read it! Well, merry CHRISTmas, and may GOD bless you richly!
You certainly made some good points -- obvious, as well as between-the-lines! lg~
lol lol, I laugh about this but this is a serious situation because there are some folks in the USA who needs the money more so than the countries where the money is being sent to. So many are homeless, so many are lost on the streets on drugs,so many cant pay the bills, so many without heat this christmas, so many cant afford to pay for their meds, so many cant go to the dentist or doctor. There is shortage of housing for the poor, low paying jobs that causes people to live in poverty. I wonder if a newspaper would print this letter to the President?
