What Do You Think Of This Letter Written To Obama?

Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and ‚class’, always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‚blame America’ crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer ‚wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use ‚extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Are There Any Betting Pools Going On That You Can Refer That Pres. Obama Will/not Be Caught In A Sex Scandal?

Since it seems to be the in thing these days. I think I’ll get a little extra money from Christmas this year that I can gamble with.
Thanks for your kind responses. Merry CHRISTmas, Happy Hanukkah and Kwanzaa to all!!

Was Obama Wrong To Seize The Funds Of 24,000 Online Poker Players?

I thought he was in favor of freedom of the internet. Poker is not illegal, unless you lump it with the kinds of degenerate gambling intended by anti-gambling laws. But then online chess for money would be illegal too, as would dozens of other popular games.
I heard a rumor that the feds who seized the money had to hurry, because they were almost out of money, because they lost too much playing online poker. That’s probably not true, but, in any case, the fact that Obama lets them do it, and doesn’t do anything to stop it or reverse it, shows that he’s a two-faced lying politican like all the rest, and never really did believe in freedom of the internet.
What can we do about people like Obama, who deceive us into voting for them, then turn around and start restricting our freedom?
Maybe we could reduce their terms to one year instead of four years, so we could vote them out sooner? A constitutional amendment to reduce the terms of presidents, senators, etc. to one year, and easier ways to vote them out, could make a big difference. Such as letting people vote on the internet. Maybe a law that we could vote them out easier than voting them in. Maybe a trial period. They start their term of office, and if we don’t like what we see, we can vote them out via the internet at any time.
Or what?

How Many Businesses Will Move When Obama Gets Elected?

Im 1/2 owner of a buisness here in the US, based out of Las Vegas, NV. We already pay huge taxes on our profits and from our gambling winnings. We have 9 full-time employees.
But if Obama gets elected, we have been talking about moving our business to Ireland since they only have an 11% business tax and we wont be taxed on our gambling winnings since we can bet over the internet instead of going into the sportsbooks here in Vegas.
How many other business will move and employees laid off if Obamas tax plan goes into effect?

Question To Republicans About Obama?

I keep seeing people write that McCain will wipe the floor with Obama and that McCain is certain to win.
Are there any people out there who realise that it will be difficult for McCain to win. Are there any out there who think it is almost impossible.
I know that republicans want him to win and hope he will but all reports showing Obama will win by aroudn 100 votes even if they are wrong its unlikely they will be that wrong.
Las Vegas is giving crazy odd on McCain winning and hardly taking bets on Obama at this stage.
Bookmakers in Europe have started to pay out on Obama winning, thats right they are already paying their own money.

Did You Know That Bookies Are Taking Bets On Barack Obama Getting Killed Within A Week Of Winning Presidency?

Some bookmakers have taken so many bets that they have closed their books. Should bookmakers be able to do this ? and if so…. what celebrity situation would YOU make a bet on happening ?
I don’t think its right… but my bet would be Amy Winehouse dead this year, and, Arsene Wenger will resign as Arsenal manager…

Do You Think It Fair For Irish Bookies To Pay Out Today On Sen. Barack Obama Winning The U.s. Presidency?

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power said this morning it is to pay out in excess of ?1 million to punters who have bet on the Illinois senator taking over the world’s top job in three weeks time.
More than 10,000 bets have been placed on the 2008 presidential election with Paddy Power in Ireland, with the majority placed in support of Obama over the past 12 months.
?We declare this race well and truly over and congratulate all those who backed Obama, your winnings await you. Although the Senator seemed a little off sorts in last night’s final debate we believe he has done more than enough to get him across the line on November 4th. The overall betting trend has shown one way traffic for Obama since the start of the summer and punters seemed to have called it 100 per cent correct.”

Is Giving To Obama ‚lottery’ Called Illegal Gambling?

Obama’s fundraiser, distributed via Internet inside Colorado, said: „If you make a donation of $5 or more between now and midnight on July 31st, you could be one of 10 supporters chosen to fly to Denver and spend two days and nights at the convention, meet Barack backstage, and watch his acceptance speech in person. Each of the ten supporters who are selected will be able to bring one guest to join them.”
„All 50 states explicitly forbid commercial gambling activities, unless expressly authorized by the state.
Is he licensed by the state? No,” he said. „In fact, in 37 states this is a misdemeanor.”
„I think he’s walking a very thin rope and probably is in violation of state and federal laws by doing that,” he said. It would be different if Obama fans were given the option of entering their name for the prize of a trip to Denver without contributing money, he said. But Obama’s e-mail didn’t include any such option.http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?f?

The Bookmakers Have Weighed In —- Obama Wins By A Mile?

The bookmakers are not talking about „polls” where if they are wrong, oh well. They are talking about cold cash where if they are wrong, they are out of business, and after 100 years, they are still here.
The odds MC Cain win—- 11/2 you bet two dollars and if he wins you get 11 They don’t give away money folks, they just don’t.
My question: Do you believe the bookies or do you think they are wrong like some think the polls are wrong?
And do you believe if MC Cain does win against the bookies, and Polls, the only way he could do that is if the electronic machines are fixed?

Irish Bookie Calls Election For Obama, Pays Out?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081016/ap_o?

A bookie in Ireland has paid out $1.35 million to people who bet that Obama would win the election. He is not accepting any more bets.
Why would a reputable bookie pay off before the election? Does he know something we don’t?
