Dear Former President

I will never forgive you for stealing four years of my life!  You created 4 years of misery, caused many people guilty of nothing more than being born poor!  They did nothing wrong, but you didn’t care about the millions that were unlucky enough not to be born with a silver spoon in their mouths.

We did not ask, nor did we want charity or more than we deserve.  We only want the chance to make our lives better than our parents.

How could you be so small-minded as to hate that other President for nothing more than being black, brilliant, and a moral man?  I understand being jealous of someone that had an easy road to success, but he worked hard to succeed.  We have all felt that green-eyed monster setting on our shoulders.  We have heard the screaming vile invectives in our ears!  “How it is fair for that person to have everything, and I have nothing.”

Did you enjoy being adored by shallow wealthy, greedy old white men?  Did you really think that those uber-wealthy individuals needed more money? Did you think they would be grateful to you forever for the massive tax break? Well, I am here to tell you they won’t!  They will throw you in the trash just like yesterday’s newspaper when they don’t need you anymore. 

You may very well “get even” with all those that hurt your little feelings, but in the end, your generosity to the “chosen few” will be rewarded with contempt!  Not one of them will reach down when you are lying in the gutter and give you a hand.  They will walk over and on you to get to the next person that will flatter their ego and pad their pocket! 

They didn’t love you then, and they won’t love you when you are yesterday’s news! They will make fun of you, just like you made fun of your idea of the “Lesser human’s!” All those that fawned over your golden image will drop you like a hot potato the minute you cannot help them step up the ladder or fly to the moon!

And the rest of us will feel somewhat sorry for you, but not much!  My mother used to say, “You reap what you sow!”  You should listen to her; she would have boxed your ears! 

I read somewhere that you should be nice to the people you meet climbing the ladder of success because you may have to kiss their ass on the fall back down.  So “Pucker up, buttercup!”

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.

  1. not former, current and past presidents, not just American presidents yet other country presidents as well!!!!!!!!!! Their all guilty!!!!!!!!!!! They all must be removed form office and from enacting on behalf opf any human being what so ever and must all give all the money back to each and every human being of every cent that they ever collected in any form of tax for any purpose what so ever as the tax they had collected lead to the mistrust of the public the hate between all walks of life and the cruel and unusal displayments they had been seen speaking even if it was one ward statements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. i had a bad day when i wrote that yet with the expression of some truth yet didnt mean ther former us president. my writing that day might had been on the fear mongering the media had done that relys on trajic events to makde their daily living and felt as the US Presidents should had prevented many of the things aired on media numerous differant years. they have a tool called speaking, when a US President speaks people tenderly listen then try to weigh what they have stated to their daily lives, applicable to some yet might not be to all. For the sake of common decentcy everywhere the truths must and need to still come out no matter where that truth is found. Being a President isn’t supposed to be somelaughing matter where at times it appears there was serious issues unattended that those issues should ha been listened to by someone way up the ladder in regards to any President that had served. yet if a crime had taken place then it’s up to congress to amend what the people need amended to each of their claims even if it’s cyber attacks that happened and say ya might not be a corporation and your just a homeowner or some common citizen trying to make it day to day, i feel many people lacked help in their times of stuggle, not some generally overly casted thing where they try to help everyone due to a act of spending unbelievable amounts of money. i havent had much money my entire life. i have written up to the white house a few times and had replys, one thing is however, i really had issues pertaining to cyber security myself that stems to the other side of Earth where intellectual property that was my own childhood things id make id futher make better as an older adult, ie the shakeable flashlight that became intellectual property theft and or the walk in bathtub or even glasses i made that would be hands free phones and radios and cammeras worn ment for Veterans in the first place, yet i dont list any of my inventions on the internet what so ever anymore in the name of Jesus because i had real problems of intellectual property thefts, lawyers titled it intellectual property theft when i had spokjen to them, their things i made with my own two hands and a lot of inspiration and its just gone forever credited to some other whoever they are collecting money of designs stolen from myself besides others. when i had written to donald j trump when he first got in office i know he took notice of my letter i written to him in regards of a place across earth that had gotten into an email account i had and stolen in invention i made, and i had been doing all my opwn investigations, trump had it investigated and it was found china was stealing $400,000,000,000 billion dollars in intelletual property theft year after year the p;ast 40 years reported by lou dobbs on tv that i use to have recorded. im tired of the thefts that happened to me and the lack of help, yet trump at least had it investigated as that was passed to a couple honest news anchors. i wrote a letter to biden currently pertaining to that infilstructer thing, yet wrote on the real need of that mopney he is speading should had been invested into the water supply not just in my town yet every city and state, things wear out underground the tiles and mainlines and even the rings under the storm curb side drains, yet the water get affaceted badly by how the hiuman race lost the ability to take care of one thing eveyone must have and that is water, there is a tremendous amount of people that buy their water from the stores filtered bottled water instead of drinking their own citys water supply, the law suits against citys of their water supplys i feel are damaging lawsuits that take money away from the ability to have enough money to replace an entire water system. ive written each president by us postal mail since i was a kind and am sure many others had too, yet some complants had gone ignored and im upset beyond imagination due to how many other people the same things have happened to and intellectual property theft is a huge one and a huge area where our own economy been ruined, the wealth of a nation is sometimes the ideas people come up with to make a country that they live in credible and fair with things like the USPTO or even that help with inventions and Lord knows i have been in contact with them a few times inregards to thius same issue im mentioning here, i had had proof of theft of my own innvations, about four of them i can put my finger on that was caused by china! I have close to a good 1,000 inventions i have eaither made and or illustrated, theones mentioned up above im not worried about now because like one person stated what can i do? Then what can anyone do to protect their own ideas from being stolen? There are people making money off of stolen ideas! Im beyond upset. when i complain to law enforcement and or state people, what tools do they have to help a person like myself recover from such thefts as one customer at a store told me directly? Their not computer geeks, they lack intell knowledge of many of them, they should take at least basic classes as poloticians where democrat or republican regardless what so they can beging to grasp some of that bad things that had been happening, those polititions aren inventors such as myself and or many like me and theyt cant grash how miseraable a person feels when their lifes worth had been ripped out from under their feet of decades of study such as myself. man, there are many people that knwo i can cuss right along the rest of them, here i had been trying to refrain from all the bad words or profanity thats morally bad for any country expecially expressed by people in public offices, the same people that wouldnt take their time out of their day when such as my phone calls when ive called varrious places you people have everything running on internet systems where people have to hide behind pc’s all the time to express their vulgar words and many times with fake names attached, yet ive called, ive asked how are you protecting me from being stolen from if im to use the internet, they never give any answers, m0ost of their opperators cant comprehend basic pc stuff, im no genis in pc related terms and or things yet i know what i need to get by and know basic things. i have in mym past randomly asked questions to people at random no matter whom anyone was, id collect and collace the information and forward it and there was a tremendous amount of simnularitys everyone had. now, after what ten years go by of repated attempts to wake government up in regards to pc related attacks where if they would had listened becasue i know what i suffered from as a user, now there is ransomeware attacks, malware being installed on home pc’s and or bussinesses where by the way the work at home thing during covid hoem pc’s didnt have the same form of structal security with routine maintenaqce as place have at work with IT people, yet whaqt tools do they have to protect American People from cyber attacks and or theft of personal identification and or protect from intellectual property thefts? There isnt any! If there was the problems that had been ongoing wouldnt of been a problem as they persist, go to: and review their posts of all knids of stuff as one suffering insider me from knowing i was stolen from of my lifes work in study, personal study, where i thought i was going to make people happy by the things i was working in with my own two hands or then atleast the studys thereof yet to only be stolen from by a country on the other side of Earth that doesnt give a dam about anyone other then theirselves. I have paper journals, i have college ruled notebook paper where i sketch and illustrate my own inventions if i get one a day, ive also mailed mtyself four letters in themail of inventions ive had yet to make illustrated on paer mailed to myself over 14 years ago and their still unopened with thefederal postage stamp still on it. i had ID theft once so dam bad that it scarred my credit reports so bad i could get a graqnt from some so and so that stolen my personal identity that took almost 11 years to correct yet hadnt been paid back of the lost of time money and effort i put in to restoring my name with a bank.

  3. Amen too. Sadly, the effect and work he created is bearing so much bad fruits. Now he has mini me’s following his footsteps. Florida Gov is leading prodigy of them all which is why the State looked like what our country was last year. I’m not really sad anymore nor heartbroken, because people are where they are because of their choices. We can’t change others , we can only change ourselves and how we react. Take care and stay safe.

  4. This is one of those truths that leave a bitter taste in your mouth and make you burst out with nervous laughter. There are leaders like him and probably worse all across the world. I love your humor. It goes perfect with your writing. 🙂

  5. Unfortunately the Republican party in the last 15-20 years has moved further to the right of the political spectrem, pandering to the Tea Party, Anon, and other radicals on the fringes rather than having a moral centre. Abraham Lincoln would spin in his grave if he could see how far his party has fallen. Protecting the interesting of big business whatever the cost.

    Change needs to happen to the political system, but it wont until the fund rasing for Presidental and other elections is slashed and capped. In the age of the internet, campaigns don’t need to go on for 18 months. In the process candidates sell their souls to raise funds. Lobbying also needs to be seriously curtailed so the voice of ordinary voters is not drowned out by special interests.

  6. I wrote this in response to the millions of solicitations from DNC for donations for various reasons and from various politicians. If the requests were written to “give” a few logical reasons why I should part with my hard-earned money, they might have received a buck or two, but they continued the “same-old, same-old” line.
