An open letter to the first lady from a father: Re: Not just any day

Madam first lady,

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely message about fathers day with us. However, the indictment of the fathers of our country for their inability to practice “responsible fatherhood” is an outrageous oversimplification of the problems facing parents in our failed state!

The problem of low wage jobs with few if any benefits will not be solved by your husband’s continuing the corpoRATe welfare fraud bailouts of the criminal corpoRATe banksters and other corpoRATe executhieves. Present and future parents and their children will pay the price for such corpoRATe giveaways in higher taxes and fewer government benefits! Money for social services NOT corpoRATe bailouts! People NOT profits!

The problem of more and more people losing their access to health care will not be solved by your husband’s “down payment” plan. Only a single payer plan like HR 676 will do that. The phony “government option” will just perpetuate the current failed system, and the cost of the ever increasing profiteering of the corpoRATe wealth care insurers and corpoRATe big pharma drug cartels will fall on present and future parents and their children by ever higher premiums and ever lower levels of care! SINGLE PAYER NATIONAL HEATH CARE OR BUST!

The problem of ever higher pork barrel military spending will only kill more present and future parents and their children over there, and more of our young people in uniform who are our parents and children. This is an outrageous price in blood! While the monetary cost will be borne by present and future parents and their children over here! Your husbands continuation and escalation of the criminal war will continue to harm us all! Cut the pork barrel military budget by 50%, US MILITARY OUT OF EVERYWHERE NOW!

Please don’t blame we impoverished parents for our inability to offer spiritual parenting to our children while we are forced to bear the brunt of the failure of your husbands policies! It rings hollow and even a bit mean coming from you who has the presidents ear every night! Please help us by speaking to these issues with your husband. We are suffering far too much for far too little in return, and so are our children…

The scientifically impossible I do right away
The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
