My Hoosier Republican ladies are at it again! With the side note "I'm stirring the pot again" she has forwarded the message below to me that she has not written, but believes. Now I would like your help in answering these two farmers in ways beyond my usual efforts. I thought of asking your help because I have already told them if it had not been for a Democrat named FDR bringing rural electrification they would have to read their farm subsidy checks (also a program from Democrats) by candlelight. That is assuming they could afford a candle.
The one that sent me this is also a Republican Election Judge so I guess she has had extensive training in pregnant and dangling chads. She has just returned from a luxury river cruise in Germany, after working for many years for a major public funded university (yet she decries public spending). She treated herself to some jewelry while she was in Europe (and her major income for many years has been in a job that was government supported with tax dollars and from which she will receive a pension).
Although she works for a university, she seems unaware of student scholarships and, because of who she listens to, thinks that Obama has been a charity case his entire life.

This is what showed up in my inbox:
Do I Have This Straight?
*His father was a Black African Muslim from Kenya.
*His Mother was a White American Atheist from Kansas.
*His father left his mother when he was two and went back to Africa by way of Harvard. was his father rich?
*His mother remarried an Indonesian Muslim and moved him to Jakarta where he was enrolled in a Muslim school.
*At high school age his mother sent him to Hawaii and his White grandparents placed him in an expensive private school.
*He later went to Harvard, were his grandparents rich?
*He lives in a 1.4 million dollar house obtained through a deal with a fundraiser. How?
*He worked as a civil rights activist in Chicago; he has never held a productive job that was not government supported.
*He entered politics at the state level and then the national level where he has minimal experience.
*He belonged for over 20 years to an Afro-centric church that hates Whites & Jews and blames America for the world's problems including Aids. He could not confront his pastor, but now he wants us to believe he can confront N. Korea and Iran?
*He has the most liberal voting record in Congress and has consistently voted for big government and higher taxes while curtailing America's ability to fight terrorism.
*I think that the truth is that he hopes no one will put the pieces together.
*He is a good orator, but have you never heard the story about the wolf hiding in sheep's clothing?
*He could destroy us from within, do you not have eyes to see it?
This ended with a request to forward to everyone you know. This is what much of Indiana and middle America believes and what are your reasoned arguments against these perceptions...There is a brief article from the Chicago Tribune covering Obama's real estate purchase because I would like to know more about this issue myself...
I have to ask you projectors at Bilerico Project how you would answer. Please, no profanity, she is a church lady!
