Veteran Writes to Sen Barbara Boxer

This letter is from a National Guard aviator and Captain for Alaska Airlines named Jim Hill. I wonder what he would have said if he were really angry. Long fly Alaska !!!!!

Babs:
You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the term, "ma'am," instead of "Senator". After all, in the military, "ma'am" is a term of respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position. The general was totally wrong. You are not a person of superior rank or position. You are a member of one of the world's most corrupt organizations, the U.S. Senate, equaled only by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Congress is a cesspool of liars, thieves, inside traders, traitors, drunks (one who killed a staffer, yet is still revered), criminals, and other low level swine who, as individuals (not all, but many), will do anything to enhance their lives, fortunes and power, all at the expense of the People of the United States and its Constitution, in order to be continually re-elected. Many democrats even want American troops killed by releasing photographs. How many of you could honestly say, "We pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor"? None? One? Two?

Your reaction to the general shows several things. First is your abysmal ignorance of all things military. Your treatment of the general shows you to be an elitist of the worst kind.. When the general entered the military (as most of us who served) he wrote the government a blank check, offering his life to protect your derriere, now safely and comfortably ensconced in a 20 thousand dollar leather chair, paid for by the general's taxes. You repaid him for this by humiliating him in front of millions.

Second is your puerile character, lack of sophistication, and arrogance, which borders on the hubristic. This display of brattish behavior shows you to be a virago, termagant, harridan, nag, scold or shrew, unfit for your position, regardless of the support of the unwashed, uneducated masses who have made California into the laughing stock of the nation.

What I am writing, are the same thoughts countless millions of Americans have toward Congress, but who lack the energy, ability or time to convey them. Regardless of their thoughts, most realize that politicians are pretty much the same, and will vote for the one who will bring home the most bacon, even if they do consider how corrupt that person is. Lord Acton (1834 - 1902) so aptly charged, "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Unbeknownst to you and your colleagues, "Mr. Power" has had his way with all of you, and we are all the worse for it.

Finally Senator, I, too, have a title. It is "Right Wing Extremist Potential Terrorist Threat." It is not of my choosing, but was given to me by your Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. And you were offended by "ma'am"?

Have a fine day. Cheers!

South Hill , WA 98374

This letter was sent to me by email from Wofat and it makes a good read.

Hat Tip Wofat.

That's one of the best reproofs, retorts, or simply truth-telling letters I've read! One concern, Opie - do you have his permission to post name and address?

Opus #6 said...

Good point, Velcro. I deleted the name and address info. Although this guy sounds like he doesn't mind standing by his words. Best to be safe about that sort of thing. Thanks for the reminder.

Fuzzy Slippers said...

Fantastic! Standing ovation!!

I do want to say, though, that I didn't think the general needed to feel humiliated at all. It was clear that he was being respectful (maybe because I'm a military brat, but still, he was clearly not being demeaning, even without the context so well provided in this letter). She looked like a shrew and a b*tch, so she revealed far more about herself than she made the general look bad.

I so LOVE this letter. Thanks for posting it. (I'm tweeting it, too, now you have that handy button there!)

(L) said...

Now that was hell of a letter!

The only problem is, that letter could have been addressed to the entire United States House of Representatives and United Staes Senate!

As far as Janet Napolitano, she should be fired immediately!

Opus #6 said...

Fuzzy, thanks again for teaching me how to get the retweet button for my blog. I am SO excited about it!

Yes, Boxer made herself look bad. That is no reflection on the General.

Bungalow Bill said...

I get the feeling the Senators are coming back to Washington with some nasty e-mail. I know I sent a very nasty e-mail to the dunce Senator from Missouri named Claire.

Opus #6 said...

(L), You mean that Napolitano, who thinks that American War Veterans are a terrorist threat, should be fired? But she is working so hard APPEASING Muslims by not investigating them, and by not charging them as enemy combatants when they are caught literally red-handed. (sarcasm)

Opus #6 said...

Bill, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but
CLAIRE DON'T CARE.

And neither do the rest of them. This past year has been the most sickening display of raw power by the ruling elite that I have seen in my lifetime.

Huzzah - Huzzah. May the anger grow and grow until it is felt within the hallowed halls of government.

Opus #6 said...

Nickie, come November, they will Hear Us Now.

Teresa said...

That was a Fantastic comeback to an arrogant, worthless, disrespectful Senator. That woman is so shrill and full of it that she needed to get the smackdown from Jim.

Opie, I have to echo this ... "Finally Senator, I, too, have a title. It is "Right Wing Extremist Potential Terrorist Threat." It is not of my choosing, but was given to me by your Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. And you were offended by "ma'am"?"

I wrote her myself about a week ago. I got a form letter saying she welcomes my impute and thanked me for sending it. I don't think it was read ... I know it wasn't read I should say.

Barking Spider said...

That letter is bloody marvellous, Opie, what a guy!

Arby said...

Ditto!

The_Kid said...

Oh, HELL YA!

I've often said "You're not a man until you stop trying to prove it."

Obviously, Babs is not a Senator until she stops trying to prove it.

Babs, you are an ignorant (lack of intelligence) tool (a&&hole) of the government. You wouldn't know Courage, Honor and Commitment if you sat on it. You wouldn't know common courtesy or decency if it erupted from your chest looking like a naked bat. Your various screw-ups have proven you to be about as much a moron as nanna pelosi. The both of you couldn't hold a job at McDonalds keeping the french fry bin full. The rest of what I would say doesn't belong on Opus's blog.

Honestly, who votes for this vermin.

LL said...

It was my first re-tweet.

Opus #6 said...

Teresa, Jim ROCKED the smackdown letter, didn't he?

Opus #6 said...

Odie, are you telling me you spoke your mind in that letter? Well done!

Opus #6 said...

Spidie, thanks for the retweet! I thanked you on Twitter as well.

Opus #6 said...

Arby, thanks!

Opus #6 said...

Kid, you got that SO right! That is what bothered me so much about Boxer's horrifying tirade. She must feel very insecure in her position to go off about her title like that.

Opus #6 said...

LL, you did it perfectly. I thanked you on Twitter. :-D

TRESTIN MEACHAM said...

I doubt she even read it, they do not even have time to read the what they are voting on. But, if she did I would have liked to have seen the look on her face

Opus #6 said...

Trestin, they can run but they can't hide.
