WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out

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 hopelessness.)
> 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?
> 1. Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British ?
> 2. Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War ?
> 3. 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.
> 4. 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 telling 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 mission, give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier 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.
> Sincerely,
> Harold B. Estes

Amen, needs. Thank you VERY much for sharing this.....really appreciate it. Nice to hear some of us aren't asleep at the wheel while the country is headed into the oncoming traffic lane.

I was skeptical about this story being true so I went to Snopes to verify it. It is a true a true story.

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:

Great blog and there's nothing I can add except that there are actually idiots who disagreed with him. Of course, that is their right which apparently the following fool did. Reminds me of similar comments I've read on this site. (our resident Anarchist)

Congratulations Harold, you were in the Navy and you’re very old. Now why on earth do I give a damn what you think? What credentials do you have to criticise a president? When you enlisted did they train you in foreign diplomacy or economics? Or have you arrived at all your wisdom sitting around white sanding beaches checking out all the tail. I don’t find this letter offensive because old Harry is just speaking his mind, well whats left of it. And I don’t blame the media for being too sensitve. I blame the people that circulated this crap that made its way into my in box.

Dr. H,

You’re an IDIOT!!!! This man has more right to speak than the President….he has actually served our country unlike the man elected to the white house. He is condemning our country and people like you are helping.

Dec 3 @ 7:28PM  
Yes your right my friend, sorry to upset you your highness, but i believe you think the old man had no right to his opinion........... to each his own, no sleep will be lost!

Dec 3 @ 8:02PM  
No, you've completely misunderstood my comment. I totally stand behind Mr. Estes email and unless I misinterpret your blog, I'm agreeing with you and applaud your posting.

Dec 3 @ 8:07PM  
Oooh-RAH, Mr. Estes.

Dec 3 @ 8:14PM  
Congrats are in order here for Mr. Estes- he speaks of that of which has been on my mind for quite a while now- which is becoming more and more evident, as time goes on!


Dec 3 @ 8:32PM  
Harold B. Estes...........FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!

Dec 4 @ 12:38PM  
gosh darn straight. we need somebody a bit older and wiser leading this place.....Obama bin laden is too young, ignorant,and too anti american. he needs a good swift steel toe to the nuts and his wife needs that phone pole removed from her anal cavity....and a good tittie twister just for good measure.

I say we kidnap Bruce and blackmail him into runnin for office.

Dec 4 @ 1:17PM  
although....I guess you could just ask him too...never thought about that...besides...he could kick my ass for even maybe asking would be less painful. But i do have a question...kind of a stupid one, there anyway the american people can de throne a president....i know the government can impeach...but what about the average joe....? I mean besides the obvious way of gettin rid of a president.

Dec 4 @ 1:53PM  
I say we kidnap Bruce and blackmail him into runnin for office.

That would go over real well with people on here!!!

Elect me president and I promise you pot in every chicken. Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your cunt. Women's clothing is a wall that impedes transparency between the sexes. In the interest of piece, tear down that wall. Now is the time for all good men to cum to aid of our nation.
