So on Facebook there is this post flying around about this woman who may lose her job because she wrote a nasty letter to Obama. Well, that’s what they’re claiming. If you read the whole thing you’ll see that isn’t the reason why she may get fired at all. It’s because her dumb ass put her school address instead of her own. Here is the letter:
A TEACHER FROM THE GREAT STATE OF MISSOURI WILL LOSE HER JOB FOR STANDING UP FOR ALL OF US.
Give this teacher and true American a standing ovation.
This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was brave enough to attach her name to it.

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia …. You didn’t show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey …… You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the
economic mess we have right now?
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.
I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
Every real American
P.S. I rarely ask that emails be ‘passed around’……………..PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST……it’s past time for all Americans to wake up!

LOL…well this is misrepresented as shit. As a teacher I’m disappointed in her lack of knowledge.
It’s not the content of the letter itself, it’s that she attached the school and its address to it. By doing so she is falsely representing her school and that is not okay. You just can’t involve your place of business because you’re pissed off about something. She’s like the dude that worked at Taco Bell that was seen jokingly licking taco shells and got fired. Well, duh, his action showed negative press for the company, same as the school. She doesn’t deserve to be fired because of her letter. She deserves to be fired because she included the address. People that support her need to be smart enough to realize that.
She is wrong about the Christianity thing. Sure, it was founded by people with Judeo-Christian beliefs but we’re NOT OFFICIALLY a Christian nation because we have the freedom of religion. In fact, we went out of our way to state that the US does not have an official religion. Sure, 2/3 of the American population believe in a Judeo-Christian God but unlike other countries we are not required to believe in a certain religion. That teacher should know it is the first amendment is what makes us a non-Christian nation. Having a heavy influence is not the same as being an official Christian nation.
That’s right, the 1st is for the freedom of religion AND speech.
She took the bowing thing out of proportion as well. In some countries its considered polite. I don’t see her getting up in arms when he bows to officials for Japan. It’s POLITE in some cultures. It’s the European-origin of bowing that she’s upset about. Again, she’s too emotional and ignorant to know the difference. Greeting foreign diplomats/royals/misc. government officials according to their native custom is considered proper. They do it for us. Some countries don’t shake hands, but in our culture it’s considered polite so they do it. In Saudi Arabia it’s also considered proper to hold hands and Bush was seen doing that with the King of Saudi Arabia. (It may have been a prince, don’t remember) I hardly hear people freaking out about that.
(Obama seen bowing to the Emperor and Empress of Japan)
(Bush seen holding hands with the king of Saudi Arabia)
WWII is not an example of us caring about other peoples. Roosevelt repeatedly tried to stay out of war while trying to remain sympathetic and it wasn’t until Pearl Harbor that we actively entered the war. (World War II: US Entry & Alliance) We entered the war because they attacked us first, before we were like “Oh man, that is so awful…well…we recognize there is a problem…how about we escort a convoy or something?”. It didn’t matter that our allies were suffering, Churchill begged us multiple times. We were hardly saying “Oh no! They’re attacking our friends! I’ll help you!” it was more of a “Well, they got us too, so we’re gonna clean up house now”
I agree with her Fannie-Mae and Freddie Mac thing though but that is hardly anything new. Where are the republicans bitching about all the bonuses during Bush? The need to get rid of the golden parachute? It’s hypocritical. I don’t say that to be one sided. I fully believe if the next president is republican and they pull more bullshit (which they will, because they’re politicians. It’s kinda their thing) the democrats will cry out their rage when they held their peace on similar things Obama has done. That is the way of things. Idiots make up both sides.
So yeah, to sum it up this woman was an idiot for putting her place of work on there. She should have put her home address if she wanted to be daring. She was too emotional to think about what she was doing. She also made a big hoo-hah (lol I love that expression) about facts she clearly didn’t really know much about. Takes all of 2 minutes of internet searching. So she embarrassed herself without realizing it.
