I have gotten pretty tired of the racist anti-Obama rants that this (in my so very humble opinion) flaming idiot keeps sending to my inbox. The email is addressed to another presumed racist, listed as the vice-president of RWC Inc and whose email address is at rwcinc.COM not .NET.
Now, I could be totally wrong about, LYLE J. BINIECKI, Vice President Phone: 989-671-6905 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, in fact there is nothing to indicate that Lylye J. Biniecki is, in fact, a racist. My only evidence is the email keeps hitting my inbox. I scrolled through my email this evening, sure that Pat Barber is racist idiot and found an email that I will post below. Pat – and I’m not sure if Pat is a man or woman, only that Pat Barber is a racist revisionist right wing wacko… in my personal opinion. Well, the wacko is the only part that I’m not completely sure of. Right wing, yes. Racist, apparently. Revisionist, absolutely. The email below talks about Lee Iacocca’s book, Where Have All The Leaders Gone? and it states, “Iacocca speaks up about Obama”. A MUST READ!!! & he is a democrat..”
First. First… first. I read this book. I own it. I could not believe what I read in my inbox, so I turned around and less than three feet from my keyboard I found Iacocca’s book on the shelf. Yes, some of the language has been left intact. But guess what? If you had just read this intellectually dishonest email you would have believed that the man who ran Chrysler, brought it back from the brink and only took $1.00 as his annual salary thinks that Obama is a Socialist. In fact, the email is an outright lie and rewrites Iacocca’s words. Words he could not have written in 2007, the copyright date for the book. He was talking about that imbecile George (whom I have developed a minor amount of respect for in his last year of presidency and beyond – his ability the shut the f*ck up and disappear has impressed me) when he wrote this book. I will now, un-rewrite the racist bile that hit my inbox:
Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president?
Sorry. I was trying to wait until there was something for me to interject. But here it is. Right on page three. The racists can’t get past the second sentence before rewriting Lee’s words. The actual sentence, reading from the book ends at the word “outrage”. It looks like this:
Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage?
Note that the grammar is incorrect, it would have read “so-called” and tell me again, who was president in 2007 when the book was written? Oh, yeah. Adding words doesn’t help your racist case…
We should be screaming bloody murder!
My copy of the book has a period, not exclamation point – maybe I nitpick.
We’ve got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff,
Um… looks like Lee wrote
gang of clueless bozos
we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers’ money, much less build a hybrid car.
For real. Enron. Arther Anderson. Read, Enron: The Smartest Guys in The Room. But let me direct you to the actual words,
…we can’t even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car.
And he means Katrina.
But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, ‘trust me the economy is getting better…’ Better? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned,
Man, what a great quote… except the liars changed it from
when the politicians say, “Stay the course.” Stay the course? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned, ‘Titanic’.
See how much better that analogy is in context?
I’ll give you a sound bite: ‘Throw all the Democrats out along with Obama!’
Is anyone counting? Did the racists make it through a single sentence without co-opting it? It really reads
Throw the bums out!
Nothing about Obama or democrats, but I can see how what Lee wrote doesn’t back up the racist mantra.
You might think I’m getting senile, that I’ve gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore… The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs…
Whups! You missed something there after that first ellipsis. I’ll add it back
The President of the United States is given free pass to ignore the Constitution, tap our phones, and lead us to war on a pack of lies. Congress responds to record deficits by passing a huge tax cut for the wealthy (thanks, but I don’t need it).
While we’re fiddling in Afghanistan,
Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and
Strike that whole section
the Middle East is burning
and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving ‘pom-poms’ instead of asking hard questions.
It’s just “the press”, as in,
And the press is waving ‘pom-poms’ instead of asking hard questions.
Written in 2007, remember?
That’s not the promise of the ‘ America ‘ my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for… I’ve had enough. How about you?
And why the ellipsis after “for”? Nothing was removed there. Dramatic effect. I use it for that sometimes.
I’ll go a step further. You can’t call yourself a patriot if you’re not outraged. This is a fight I’m ready and willing to have. The Biggest ‘C’ is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C’s of leadership, with crisis being the first.)
Ahem. His first, was in fact, curiosity, on page 6. Crisis is important, but he writes it last on page 11. Half point to the racists, Iaccoca calls it the Biggest C – but it is not the first.
Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It’s easy to sit there with thumb up your butt
feet up on the desk
and talk theory. Or send someone else’s kids off to war when you’ve never seen a battlefield yourself. It’s another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down. On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes.
The email drops several sentences about how baffled Bush was while reading my pet goat, how Bush went into hiding and eventually led us into war with Iraq. None of this is helps to stir the racist bile, so it is conveniently dropped.
A hell of a mess, so here’s where we stand. We’re immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving.
Lee meant Iraq – 2007 copyright
But our soldiers are dying daily.
Hmm… I didn’t read this in the book.
We’re running the biggest deficit in the history of the world,
Country. The word you wanted was country
and it’s getting worse every day!
must have been added for effect.
We’ve lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs. Gas prices are going
to skyrocket again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil
reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.
To nitpick again, he says we’re losing to Asia, not lost, gas prices are skyrocketing not skyrocketed and finishes with
nobody in power has a coherent energy policy.
schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers union.
Looks more like,
schools are in trouble
Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegals amnesty and free healthcare.
Is more like,
Our borders are like sieves.
The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.
The middle class is being squeezed every which way.
These are times that cry out for leadership. But when you look around, you’ve got to ask: ‘Where have all the leaders gone?’ Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point. Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo? We’ve spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened. Everyone’s hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them.
Man, this email was on a roll. I thought I could just quote to the end. Just after, “react to thing that have already happened is the beginning of a new paragraph.
Name me one leader who has emerged from the crisis of Hurricane Katrina…
the email drops two or three sentences.
Now, that’s just
crazy… Deal with life.
Now, that’s just crazy. Storms happen. Deal with it. Make a plan. Figure out what you’re going to do the next time.
Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when ‘The Big Three’ referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!
How did this happen – and more important, what are we going to do about it?
Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry. I have news for the Chicago gangsters in
I have news for the gang in
We didn’t elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don’t you guys show some spine for a change?
We didn’t elect you to sit on your asses and do nothing and remain silent while our democracy is being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bobblehead on Fox News will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don’t you guys show some spine for a change?
It goes on like this a bit more. I’m tired. Time for bed. Time to stand up to these racist forwarding their emails to the friends at RWC Inc at that other domain…. with the .com extension. This email was forwarded to me by Pat Barber, obvious racist, mental midget. Just look at the copyright date on the book. It’s revisionist history at best but more likely just plain, bald racism.
