EMAIL TO THE WHITE HOUSE: THERE ARE SOME "FISHY" IDEAS OUT THERE!
August 6, 2009

Dear White House Bureau of Acceptable Ideas;

I received some "fishy” ideas about the government today. As anyone with the approved ideological bearing knows, in 1776 the king and Parliament only wanted what's best for us all--but he was thwarted by a bunch of radicals who were obviously under the pay of foreign billionaires. Such ideas as individual rights, if not rooted out today, could undercut the government's ability to control our lives in ways we are unable to do for ourselves.

This is only an excerpt. Below it are three pieces of fishy writing that appeared recently. It's as if the writer actually understands individual rights and wants to protect them. He has also read the bill for socialized medicine--something which should not be allowed. With that kind of information floating about, it's no wonder people are starting to question the motives of the government.

But as I am sure you agree, unless we submit to authority blindly and without question, we can never be free.

Your Loyal Subject
Dr. John David Lewis

President Obama told CEOs of financial industries: "My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks."

This is thuggery. He behaves like a Mafia boss.

Here is an example of an undefined, flexible policy: Cybersecurity Act of 2009 http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opi...

If people fighting for freedom accept undefined, flexible, contradictory laws: the country is doomed.
