John G. Is 63 years old and owns a small business. He's a life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated. With the stock market crashing and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has a granddaughter.. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama. After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other Republican family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that her party is taking over.

Having lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse.. Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.

Here is his reply:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sweetheart, I received your request for assistance.

Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I 'm sympathetic to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed. With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our own..."The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan." Let me explain.

Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc.. We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan has changed. Your president is raising our personal and business taxes significantly. He says it is so he can give our hard earned money to other people. Do you know what this means, Ashley? It means less for us, and we must cut back on many business and personal expenses.

You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week. I can't afford to pay her salary and all of the government mandated taxes that go with having employees. Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle the books. We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income to the Wal-Mart.

I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this morning.. He already knows about it and he's upset because he will have to give up skydiving and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey the polar bears.

That's just the business side of things. Some personal economic effects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other than you You know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts, etc.., etc. But by your vote, you have chosen to help others -- not at your expense -- but at our expense.

If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call 202-456-1111. That is the direct phone number for the White House.. You can also contact the White House here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/CONTACT/ .

You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote Republican. You said Mr Obama is going to be the People's President, and is going to help every American live a better life. Based on everything you've told me, along with all the promises we heard during the campaign, I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me for the account number which I memorized years ago..

Perhaps you can now understand what I've been saying all my life: those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves. What Obama supporters don't seem to realize is all of the money he is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans (the so-called "less fortunate") comes from tax-paying families.

Remember how you told me, "Only the richest of the rich will be affected"? Well guess what, honey? Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich. On paper, it might look that way, but in the real world, we are far from it.

As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper.. You understand what that means, right? It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less money; less money for everything, including granddaughters.

I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry.. The free lunches are over.. I have no money to give you now. So, congratulations on your choice for "change." For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash you have received from us, just since you went off to college, and compare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8) years. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the gift of our hearts.

Remember, we love you dearly....but from now on you'll need to call the number mentioned above. Your "Savior" has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it from him.

Good luck, sweetheart.

Love, Grandpa

Grandpa sounds like he has Alzheimer's or is just a dick. I don't know which.

@boomerang,
Bottom line though appears to be that Ashley didn't do her own financial situation any favors by supporting Oinkbama...

Well, see here's the problem: grandpa is suffering from end-stage dementia. He thinks that the federal government has raised his taxes. It hasn't. He's clearly delusional.

EDIT: I see boomerang had the same idea. Great minds think alike.

@gungasnake,
Actually, it seems that Ashley didn't do herself any favors by losing her roomates.

Other stuff has already been addressed, but to take this part, did the economy START to go kerblooey when Obama took office? No. It did that under Bush, and it wasn't incidental.

That's true. Given that she's apparently a privileged, aimless brat living off the largesse of her wealthy ancestors, she clearly should have voted Republican.

@djjd62,
Yes, djjd, there is a Ashley. She exists as certainly as politics and propaganda and the need for archetypes exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its confusion and dispair. Alas! how lovely would be the world if there were no Ashleys. It would be as lovely as if there were no jackass grandpas.

The stock market just hit a 17 month high yesterday. I wonder about John G's sanity if he thinks the market is "crashing".

Clearly Grampa is an illegal alien since he refers to "your" president. Any REAL American would refer to Obama as "our" president

Clearly Grampa isn't much of a businessman if he competes directly with Wal-Mart but has kept a receptionist for the last 23 years. I wonder what kind of raises he gave her to keep her working for that long answering the phone in a retail store, which he must run if he competes with Wal-Mart.

@gungasnake,
You can fool some of the fools some of the time, Gunga. You can fool complete fools pretty much all of the time.

Yes, but in my world, taxes would be higher the more douche baggy you are. So I'd be in a small percentage bracket, whereas that turd with a keyboard would be getting about half his income taxed, just like George W. Bush and Sarah Palin.

Anyhow, I can't even visualize a conservative Republican naming a kid Ashley, Tiffany, Morgen, or any thing of the sort.

Leave it to a conservative to name their kid a liberal name like "Ashley" and then expect them to turn out to be a conservative.
