Writing To Obama
Posted by Kyle L. Varnell (+3742) 12 years ago
I am going to send a letter to the White House and President Barack Obama. I fully don't expect a reply but it'll be pretty cool to do. My Grandma got a birthday message from Bush II (autopenned) so who knows.

I will post what happens.

Well that's not very nice. I don't hate Obama contrary to popular opinion. I don't agree with his policies but I don't hate the guy.

Ask Obama if he has any help for your OCD...Obsessive, Compulsive Disorder...Also what job do you have that you are on the computer constantly posting most days?? Don't you have a home life??

Actually Howdy a lot of times I'm either in class (College and not Primary) or at home working on my degree. For those times I use my iPhone.

Didn't know you were still a student...How old r u?
Top
Posted by Kyle L. Varnell (+3742) 12 years ago
I'm 35. After working for a few years (and a little personal trouble) I decided to go back and finish my degree.

It's not easy but pretty worthwhile.

Ha! I knew it! Still in school! But much further ahead than I thought...

Which Cosmetology program are you enrolled in?

Dill, again, what I'm studying is not your concern.

Which Cosmetology program are you enrolled in?

Grow up.

Good for you going back to school, Kyle! Will you post the content of your letter to the prez as well the reply, if any?
Top
Posted by Kyle L. Varnell (+3742) 12 years ago
Absolutely! I don't expect a reply but it'd be cool to get one.

Even if it IS an auto-penned one.

I bet you'll get one back. You could probably threaten his life and get a thank you note in return.

Comedian Don Novello, under the name Lazlo Toth, has been writing to Presidents and similarly busy folk for decades. He has demonstrated that no matter how insane your letter, you always get a polite reply telling you they value your opinion.

Don Novello - wasn't he Fr. Guido Sarducci as well?

Just googled Don Novello.

He did portray Fr. Guido Sarducci - a bit back when SNL was funny

Ladies & gentlemen we have a winner! To give everybody a mild pause here, yes I will be educating America's youth when I am finished.

Brian, where can I send you an autographed picture of A-Rod?

Send it to me here at work. I'll put it in the bathroom. In the urinal. He'll give me something to aim at.

Considering his nickname A-Roid, Brian shouldn't you have said SHOOT AT instead?
Top
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6023) 12 years ago
Not touching that one.
Top
Posted by J. Dyba (+1347) 12 years ago
I'm sorry Brian but if you're aiming at it you are in fact touching it.
Top
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6023) 12 years ago
Good point, J. But that's not what I wasn't going to touch.

What I wasn't going to touch was the phrase, "shoot at."

Kyle,

Since you are getting an education degree I will expect perfect grammar from you. Be ready!

Also, Don Novello wrote a book that was a collection of his letters and the replies. It's pretty old, maybe published in the late 70s or early 80s? It's a hoot!
