I dont think obama really takes his time to read this but this is to who really reads this letter!

Mr. Obama i' am sorry but i can not call you my president because while in election you promised so many things for people and i have yet to see any of it happen. You have made things worse in my point of view. I believe strongly against everything you have done you dont even believe in god how can you be president of AMERICA when america is evolved around god and you dont even believe in him. Our past presidents have took action against the terriosit but you, you have befriended them. We as people need to have  a relection because the people have made the wrong choice.

MARIJUANNA

Marijuanna shouldn't be illegal! If Marijuanna was legal the crime and murder rate would drop. Marijuanna calms most be down. And for the medical patients it eases the pain!! and the only reason it doesn't get legalized is because it can't be taxed!!!!! please legalize marijuanna

Homeland Security

Dear President Obama, I am a 55 year old unemployed individual with an Associates Degree in Hazardous Materials Technologies.  I have been unable to be employed in this field since my environmental,health and safety incorporation failed in 2001 (I possess 15+ years of experience in this industry, my father was a pioneer in this field).  Drawing on my former background, I have worked in a variety of administrative fields since that time.  I have been unemployed since April 2009 and have actively pursued all realms of employment only to be either interviewed several times for the same position, or received a "thanks, best of luck in your future endeavor" letters.  My Tennesee State unemployment ran out the week before Christmas.  Although I requested a State extension, I was refused and refered to the "EUC08" option.  I have now been advised that this option ran out 12/31/09.  Oh Well. The purpose of my letter is homeland security and airline security.  Is there any reason that individuals that have been flagged as a high risk desiring to board a specific flight could not be rerouted to a designated flight with other individuals who are also flagged as high risk?  I feel that this would perhaps be more cost effective for both airlines and ground safety personnel; but, also would allow the mainstream individuals to continue to maintain their personal and economic freedoms.   Respectfully submitted, Judith Glaze Swanson      

One Nation Under God?

    Did you know that in South Carolina it is ILLEGAL to have the words “I Believe”, or even a cross on your license plate? What ever happened to freedom of religion? Adam Lambert, runner up of American Idol last year, can stand on stage at the 2009 American Music Award show and kiss another guy, and yet we can't express our religion. What kind of freedom is that? Is our world beginning to say “Do what you want, it doesn’t matter?” Have we all forgotten what this country was founded on? Have we all forgotten that the reason this country was even formed was so that we may have freedom of religion?     Whatever happened to “One nation under God?” We all know the pledge. We listen to it daily at school, but we don't understand the meaning.  "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Here’s what this means: I promise to be true to the symbol of our country and each state that has joined to make our country where the people choose others to make laws “of, by and for” the people. A single country united together that can't be split into parts, a country under God with freedom and fairness for each person. That is what it really means.     People are so judgmental it's ridiculous! You're not supposed to be judgmental. Now don't get me wrong, nobody is perfect, but at least give the person a chance. Just because they may be a different race than you, or hang out with different kind of people than you do doesn't mean you may not even like the person. For all you know, they could become your new, life-long friend.     Prejudice is just as wrong. It separates us as a community, a state, and a country. Like I stated earlier, there’s a part in the pledge that says “one nation, under God, indivisible..” That means for us to be one single country, under God, that cannot be split into parts. Does that sound like our country at the current moment? I think not. I think that what our country needs is Jesus. We all need him. Through him all things are possible, and without him all else fails. That is one nation under God. This, our country now, is not.     The Pledge Of Allegiance is like a promise, and so far we haven't kept that promise. I think it is time to start keeping that promise. Without God nothing is going to go as you planned. Even with God things won't always go as YOU planned, but how GOD plans. Don't blame him for how the economy is now, because we haven't allowed him to have anything to do with it. We have been in control, and look where it has gotten us. If you don't believe that this country needs God, then look around. If you say you need proof that this country needs God, look around. We need God everywhere, especially in schools. We need to start keeping our promise. "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." -Kaitlyn Skinner

An Invocation to Fight for Women and their Unborn. In Defense of Health Care Reform.

Dear President Obama,    I would first like to thank you for engaging the Congress and our Country on this highly emotional and difficult issue of health care reform. I understand that you would like to make a difference and pass a bill with some improvements rather than nothing at all. I understand that you are walking a fine line in your negotiations with Congress in order to make some great accomplishments, but some of us would like to hear your voice in the health care debate more unequivocally for the principles that will really make a difference for those of us with…. no options.  I would like to invoke you on the current health care bill by sharing a real-life experience as a woman who is ineligible for health care because of a pre-existing condition. What is this condition that would be so repugnant to the health insurance industry, you ask? It is the "condition" of expecting a child. My husband and I were not expecting to get pregnant, and have been struggling as small business owners of our recently closed retail furniture store for the last two years. My husband is an architect and unable to find work in his field. We’ve scarcely had the money to put food on our table or pay our mortgages, let alone buy a health insurance plan for our 19-month-old daughter and ourselves. So, when we found out we were expecting another child, we scrambled in attempt to find insurance for maternity care. We have since learned that we are not eligible for Medicaid, not because of our income levels, but rather because we own real estate of which is heavily leveraged against our failed small business. I am ineligible for insurance coverage from the private sector due to my "condition". Additionally, the HIPA Utah government program, designed to protect those denied coverage in the private sector, also underwrites their insurance to exclude those with pre-existing conditions such as mine from coverage for the first 10 months. Because I do not trust my local government to protect its people, I look to the Federal Government to make a difference. So, it is with immense sadness and hopelessness that I express great disappointment in a State (Utah), that claims to be family oriented and to value the sanctity of life; yet, the very same conservatives will allow insurance companies to deny women and their unborn access to medical care. There is tragic irony in these so-called values. I look to my delivery with optimism and pray that all goes well, that I will not be admitted to the hospital with complications; for such an event will most assuredly bankrupt my self-employed and hardworking family. I believe that it is your intention to protect the most vulnerable in this debate, and even stand up to those conservatives and moderates who oppose a public option or health care reform on a purely ideological or political basis'.  I understand that the public option is dead as of now, and that an insurance exchange was the negotiation in the Senate bill, that something is better than nothing; but the fight is not over yet. I invoke you to rattle those Democrats in Congress to improve this bill before it is signed, and expose Democrat and Republican hypocrisy for what it is. Their fight is not about the sanctity of life or fiscal responsibility; neither does excluding a public option protect the interest and future of the American people. Let us not line the pockets of private insurance companies with federal funding when they are less than willing to sacrifice and join the good fight. Why must the American middle-class carry the burden of tax increases and not the insurance companies that will be enlarging their customer base and profits from an insurance exchange?  They say that where you stand on the issues depends on where you sit in life. It is akin to when one sees a homeless person on the street and averts their eyes, for it is difficult to accept that there are those in this great country suffering. It is painful to acknowledge the existence of suffering. Do not let Congress avert their eyes. Stand up to Congress and ask for the best bill we can get. Protect women and their unborn children with a competitive public option and comprehensive health care reform…and if it must be the private insurance industry that benefits from this legislation, that they share adequate burden of its cost, and not middle-class Americans alone. Lastly and most importantly, protect those of us with no options…we cannot wait until 2014 for the protections of health care reform.               Respectfully, Sara Bradford Lee

Dear Mr. President, First of all , I would like to congratulate you on your masterly win in the 2008 presidential campaign and I hope you succeed in your responsibilities of solving some problems your nation faces. My name is Moharram sharifi, and I come from Iran . Regardless of the tensions between the two countries , I am writing this letter to you and I hope you answer my letter soon. Dear Obama, Ever since I was a child , I have loved English language ,so I have studied English language Teaching in the university. I have master of arts in English language Teaching , and I am fluent in it, I have always wanted to visit the United states, but because of political problems between the two countries, We have not been able to come and see there, therefore ,we lose the opportunity of studying in the great and highly equipped American universities. When I see in my country those professors who studied in American universities such as UCLA, I wish I could visit and study in the United States. Dear Mr.Obama. I am writing this letter to you because I need your help and assistance. As a matter of fact, I want to continue my studies in English language Teaching in PH.D in the United States , and due to financial matters , I cant afford all the expenses. I hope you kindly grant me a scholarship and student visa to come to the U.S.A. Please don’t let me get disappointed. Let me tell you that I can provide other university requirements such as TOEFL and GRE scores. I hope the two nations live in peace together without any problems.

Dear Obama, Ever since I was a child , I have loved English language ,so I have studied English language Teaching in the university. I have master of arts in English language Teaching , and I am fluent in it, I have always wanted to visit the United states, but because of political problems between the two countries, We have not been able to come and see there, therefore ,we lose the opportunity of studying in the great and highly equipped American universities. When I see in my country those professors who studied in American universities such as UCLA, I wish I could visit and study in the United States. Dear Mr.Obama. I am writing this letter to you because I need your help and assistance. As a matter of fact, I want to continue my studies in English language Teaching in PH.D in the United States , and due to financial matters , I cant afford all the expenses.

Let me tell you that I can provide other university requirements such as TOEFL and GRE scores. I hope the two nations live in peace together without any problems. Sincerely yours Moharram Sharifi

Dear Mister President ( I'm french but i think it is the official words to adress to you ! )

Dear President,   I did follow from Australia your whole campaign for presidency , we lucky enough to watch american news early in the morning here in Australia, I generally wake up at 3.30 in the morning and can get ABC Good Morning America at this time. I  always been a big fan of yours during your campaign, with my french back ground and not so stupid eyes , I saw from the begining your potential for the job ( my father used to be a public elected figure in France aswell , so i know  a bit about value of the right person, not such in politic itself, but more in involvement for the community or any other level of the nation involvement). Excuse me for my poor english but i guess you will understand most of my points. Anyway , I did cry for real when you have been elected as President of United States !!!! And to be 100 % honnest with you : American Image , specially with Bush, has not been at the top of my consideration for years now . But with you I believed in a change , even a new era... As far as you go , I'm not disapointed !!!! Now ... why I did writing to you.... I'm in trouble in my business , I will say  good size financial trouble !!!! Everything I said before about you and what you represent  for me as  a new figure of America, you are not obliged to believe it, but it is the true. Yes I need money to keep my businees survived, around US $ 50 000 , will save me out of bankrupcy. I know my request seems crazy !!! But you are a hope  for the world , so I thought  why you will be not a hope for my business. I guess 100% of my request will be not take in consideration but at least I'm happy to adress you this request , and again my feelings for you , your actions, your attitude, your family.... will not change with no answer from you or a logical negative answer from you ( why you will help a bloody Australian business owner with what you have to solve in your own country and in the world ?) Anyway thank you, Mister President, to spend a bit of your busy time to read me, and I'm open to talk any time. Best regards from Australia , from one of your fan. Philippe Mehel

Foreign made products

Dear Sir: I am a veteran of Korea. I am mad as hell at ALL of the politicians for letting our country go down the drain. WE all know the problem but no one(including yourself) will not do anything about it. The politicians have lined their pockets by sending all the jobs overseas;and we all know how to stop the border crossings, but no one does anything about it. You people in Washington think you are fooling the avaerage American; BUT your not. It's just that we can't do anything about it.....YET. One of these days; YES; one of these days we are going to get enough of it and kick all of your asses down the road. As far as I can tell; you are trying to get some things straight ..... BUT..You need to stop all of this "CRAP" that is foreign made that's coming into our country. I do know that we need some foreign trade; but not everything. You know and I know that there is too much "graff" going to politicians. YOU know because I know that you have seen it with your own eyes and ears. Do pretend you haven't. Like I say; the politicians are lineing their pockets and the American public knows it. I for one am tired of haveing to buy everything made in China. There goods are poorly made and the material they use is junk. I remember being overseas and mailing things home; if you looked close you could see the metal they used was from beer cans . The American people are getting sick of the politicians in Washington ; every last one of them. Please remind Mr.McCain that during the race for the oval office that he said" I know where Ben Laden is and I can get him" . Thanks for your time; although; I know that you personally will not read my letter. At any rate good luck and may God Bless you. Tell you lovely wife hello .   Derrell Reagan

Loosing faith due to ecomony situation

Dear Mr. President Obama, I know you must get thousands of letters from American citizens about concerned issues.  I sincerely pray you will read this letter.  I am a 59 year old american woman.  My husband and I have worked hard all our lives to make a good living and care for all of our seven children.  We owned our own excavating company for many years in Newburgh Ny.  Our last final job took away all we worked for.  That job was putting in a new fuel farm at Stewart International Airport.  It was through the Department of transportation who put the bid out and we acquired the job.  The job was awarded us with so many left out items and change orders to get the job done right.  We did our job, and did it well.  When the DOT did not have enough funding to complete this project, due to poor project engineering, they did not pay us using many excuses why they shouldn't.  In the meantime we fronted thousands of dollars up front to complete our responsibility.  We exhausted all of our funds and lost our home of 28 years as well as bonding to continue working on other projects.  We are still in litigation with DOT today.  It has been financially and emotionally stressful.  My husband has been a diabetic for approximately fifteen years and his condition has worsen over the years due to this lawsuit. We moved to Cape Coral Florida in 2007 after the loss of our home.  We needed to reduce living expenses such as high fuel bills and hope the warm climate would be better for my husband's health.  To date our income is my husband's disability and social security checks.  He has medical coverage and I do not.  I have not been to a doctor since I left NY two years age.  I self medicate when I have a problem because I cannot afford to go to a doctor.  Honestly I order my antidepressant drugs overseas because I do not have a prescription for them anymore.  The reason they were prescribed in the first place was for all the anxiety I was faced with at the time.  I do not want a hand out, but I have tried desperately to find a job that could help our situation, but nothing is out there.  We applied for food stamps and were denied.  The reason I am writing to you about my situation is because I have always believed in the American way but now I feel hopeless and discouraged.  At my age I would never believed that I would have to struggle through my older years.  I am a woman with no means of taking care of my health when I need a doctor or tests.  I have no extra income to pay for clothing and household needs after the rent, utilities, food, and insurances are paid.  I know I am only one of many Americans struggling today.  This country needs jobs to be able to afford to live in our once great nation. I am hoping my story like many others, will be addressed and recognized as a real problem in this country.  I know Mr. President you are aware of the country's financial situation as a whole, but I felt compelled to let you know how this actually effects people like me who have no light at the end of the tunnel and have no direction to turn to.  Unless you Mr. President or any other public paid official have experienced what each and every one of us desperate citizens endure everyday, you cannot possibly know what a living hell it is.  I believe greed put us where we are today, and those who have contributed to our crisis, probably sleep at night without a second thought of the impact their control had on us citizens who believed and had faith in them.  Mr. President I heard part of a speech by Mrs. President awhile back after election.  I turned off the TV when I saw Mrs. President smile and say living in the White House is great.  Everyone should have someone cater to their every need.  Although I respect that honesty, I shut the TV off crying.  I do not want or expect someone to cater to me or those like me, I just want the same right to live comfortable in our American.  I am sure I speak for many like me and some who are even in worse situations. I pray for you Mr. President to be able to bring back our American dreams.  Hopefully sooner than later.  I pray you are given the compassion and wisdom to make the right choices.  Maybe we should spend less money with NASA projects.  Put that spending towards the people who need it.  I am just a simple woman Mr. President, which you can tell by my writing, but I am not a stupid person.  I know wrong and I know right and this is not right!!!   Respectfully, Toni M Serviss
