    95 year old hero!
    Letter To Obama at White House sent
    from 95 year Old Pearl Harbor Survivor !!
    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
    for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country.
    A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until
    now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

    Dear President Obama,

    My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.
    People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I
    remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

    I enlisted in the U.S.Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring
    as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home"
    located on the western end of Pearl Harbor
    allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

    One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

    So here goes.
    I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I
    do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
    I can't figure out what country you are the president of.
    You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
    " We're no longer a Christian nation"
    " America is arrogant" - (Your wife even
    announced to the world," America is mean-
    spirited. " Please tell her to try preaching
    that nonsense to 23 generations of our
    war dead buried all over the globe who
    died for no other reason than to free a
    whole lot of strangers from tyranny and

    I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America ,
    nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the
    obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or
    gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

    After 9/11 you said," America hasn't lived up to
    her ideals."
    Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that
    11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the
    British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another
    man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn't mean
    the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I
    knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about
    not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.
    I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than
    discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people
    understood when they helped to get you elected.
    Take a little advice from a very old geezer,
    young man.
    Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don't, I'll do what
    I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue.
    You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of
    murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

    And just who do you think you are tellin g the American people not to
    jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his
    fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don't want us to
    do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black
    college professor in Massachusetts,
    who was putting up a fight? You don't mind offending the police
    calling them stupid but you don't want us to offend Muslim fanatics by
    calling them what they are, terrorists.

    One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never
    had to defend your country with your life, but you're the
    Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened
    field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mi ssion,
    give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out.
    The life of one American soldie r is not worth the best political
    strategy you're thinking of.

    You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest
    challenge ever presented to any president.
    You're not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our
    bloated economy. That's not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and
    soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
    And I sure as hell don't want to think my president is the enemy in
    this final battle...

    Snopes confirms as true:
    snopes.com: Letter to President Obama - Harold Estes
    When a 95 year old hero of the "the
    Greatest Generation" stands up and speaks out like this, I think
    we owe it to him to send his words to as many Americans as we can.
    Please pass it on.

    That truly is a great letter.
    He was far too kind.
    The marxist in chief deserves 300 million more just like it.

    I agree what this American Hero wrote. I have to say though, what would those that fought in the Civil war, think of those who led the nation at the turn of the century, or those that fought in 1812 thought of the generation that fought in the Civil war. Everything changes but yet its the same.
    May God bless these men who gave their lives to make this nation what it was and what it is and what it will be, hopefully for the better.

    Obama is not American, Obama is not Christian, Obama and his crew are socialists at the very minimum. The sooner they are called what they are, the sooner this Country will begin to improve. Until that time comes, I have no President, and don't call me a racist, Joe BidenReedPoulosie etc. and any bubbleguming Repuplican that say's, Well Joe is my friend, but we disagree on this, falls into the same crap pile that the Obama is. SIMPLE, YOU ARE AMERICAN OR YOU ARE NOT. I will be dead long before I get to meet the Honorable Mr. Estes. :flag:

    My father was a WW2 vet and I believe it was a blessing he didn't live to see what has happened even in the last 10 years to this nation
