Dear Editor:

Reader Joe Campbell opines, "Kudos to C.W. Griffin, one of the best contributing writers in the Ahwatukee Foothills News" (AFN, Aug. 13).

If you're in need of an emetic, Dr. R. Michael Brady "educates" us on the origins of SB1070, saying all SB1070 supporters are not racists, then implying we all really are.

Right here in Ahwatukee Foothills we seem to be over-run by Obama acolytes (more realistically, sycophants), with egos so hyper-inflated that they arrogantly self-rank themselves as superior to any other form of thought.

The country is in financial collapse ... real unemployment is at 18 percent-plus, yet Obama steals money from the food stamp fund to buy votes from teacher and police unions. Nice!

But that's the way things are going to be from now on ... Chicago-style politics ... watch Blagojevich walk ... watch elections get bought.

We've arrived at a twisted world ... arrogant carpetbagger politicians, posing as elitists, telling us how they know what's best for us, forcing "change" down our throats, thumbing their noses at the common sense of the common man ... calling any disagreeing debate "racist."

It is sedition to suggest overthrow of the government of the United States. Yet Islam extremists preach that very thing ... force us to follow Sharia Law. Do we resist? No! The Obama-nation says that freedom of religion is absolute. The Islamist extremists are laughing up their sleeves ... they're destroying us using our own political correctness as the ultimate weapon. You can easily find this quotation on the web: "We Muslims know the idea behind the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation to thumb our noses at the infidel. The proposal has been made in bad faith and in Islamic parlance, such an act is referred to as ‘Fitna', meaning ‘mischief-making' that is clearly forbidden in the Koran."

We are headed hell-bent-for-leather toward a deep depression. Obama thinks adding more government jobs will fix it. It won't. Our money, our "paper" (bonds and notes) are becoming worthless. That is why the Chinese are placing export restrictions on rare earths, cokes, phosphorus and other "feeder items" that are needed to produce technological goods; they will not swap precious resources for mere paper. Russia feels the same about wheat. When this catches on it is effectively hyperinflation: Money cannot buy what you need, making money worthless, only real goods and services have value and we have none of that. A whole new world.

And it will be bad. In the last depression we had a fall-back position ... we were primarily an agrarian society. No more! Nowhere to go home to now.

Can we do anything? Sometimes I doubt it. But clearly any Democrat you elect will immediately be a bought-and-paid-for Obama-lackey. You see it happening before your very eyes.

So get out and vote ... and hope!
