    This was an interesting read. I was sent the original letter, and before I reprinted it, I checked it out on Daniel's website and found he REALLY did write Obama the following letter:

    WARNING if you love Obama, DO NOT READ this letter... :laugh:

    http://www.charliedaniels.com/soapbox-2012/soapbox-2012-0720.htm

    Okay...some of you didn't take my warning seriously, and you read the letter. You were properly forewarned, SO DO NOT JUMP ON ME FOR WHAT Daniels said. After all, he is only practicing his right to free speech. At least, he had the GUTS to send it to the WH. :applause:

    Well, I can say an "amen" to that letter!!

    My husband started a business. He had an idea and knew he could do it. He got 4 other men who believed in what he though he could do and they started a company. My husband quit his job to begin working 16+ hour days in our basement with some of these other men (two of them provided finances, business experience and legal help since one was a lawyer). I had at one time 3 other men living in my home when my husband and I had only been married a few years. I remember waking up one night to go to the bathroom early in my first pregnancy and finding a group of 8 guys sitting around my kitchen table eating leftovers from dinner. I personally spent a fortune feeding these guys as they worked around the clock to get the product designed, tested and manufactured. Eventually, they were able to get office and manufacturing space thanks to people investing in the company.

    Through time, my husband built the business so that he was meeting with executives from Disney Studios, Todd AO Glenn Glenn, Skywalker Sound and many large studios both in NY and LA. He had stiff competition and had to work hard to bring this product to market at a very competitive price and beating the others out in design. He eventually sold his business for a number in the millions.

    How much did the government help? Zero. But they were there with their hands out when he sold the business and they took just about 1/2 of the profits of the company my husband built. That was unbelievable.

    President Obama is right. Doesn't lessen anyone's accomplishments in the business world, it takes tremendous dedication and sacrifice to start and maintain a business. That being said, you didn't get there all by yourself, you had help.

    Mr. Daniels should stick to playing "smokey beer joints" so he can pay his bills.

    My husband didn't have one speck of help from the government and many other businesses never did either.

    First Obama's statement was made to give government credit so he could justify more taxes and downplay the reality. And Charlie Daniels no longer does that. He is now a sold out Christian.

    Saw my dad build two very different and successful businesses from the ground up, was even involved myself for awhile, but we had help, no doubt about it.

    Why the aversion to admitting that you had help and that some of it came from different government entities?

    Perhaps I have a different idea of what help is. It was helpful to have public schools while my dad built the business. It was helpful to have the VA underwrite a loan so we would have a place to live. It was helpful to have city planners do their job so my dad could know where to buy property and set up an office. It was helpful to have well maintained roads. Etc....

    There where lots of long work days and sacrifices made by my dad, but even he would say he didn't get there without help.

    BTW - the businesses where an auto repair shop and an insurance agency, if that makes any difference.

    Because we didn't.

    I was working at the time and by the time my children were big enough to be in school, he had already sold the business and the government took millions from us in taxes.

    We didn't have any of that. I worked through my pregnancy so that we'd have food on the table. We had investors for the business but all that money stayed in the business. He didn't even take a salary until there was enough money to do so.

    We paid for that through our property taxes.

    That's great - but not all businesses are started and supported with help from the government including this large business my husband started - and then his subsequent business doing consulting. Oh wait - he did get help from the government with his consulting - they were one of his customers.

    With the exception of this comment...

    ...Mr Daniels needs to keep his mouth shut.

    If not, he might go on a crazy tirade concerning his (((GUNS))) :BangHead:

    Just a display of the level of anger that pervaded many during this past election cycle. His letter stinks of disrespect for the man that GOD placed in the office.

    He is President Obama, not Mr. Obama. That continued display of disrespect is enough to not pay Charlie Daniels any attention.

    I agree that it should be "President Obama" but even the news here in NY calls him "Mr. Obama".

    I think we as Christians need to be really careful with that type of thing. I'd just as well he disappeared into the sunset and took all of his cabinet and staff with him. But until said time, he is Mr. President until God gets him out of there.

    Now if he came to my house, I might have to call him Barack or Barry. :laugh:

    And here is the crux of what Charlie is saying. Why is there an aversion to Obama's agenda and words? Because he is insisting that if someone else has more than you it is bad and you need to give up the difference and spread it around to be more "fair".

    It is a victim mentality that only comes from a deranged liberal mind set. Liberalism is evil and a disease, and cancer on society that needs to be cut out and needs to be eradicated. We see that now more than ever.

    Your new Pharaoh is pathetically wrong about everything and you are pathetically wrong about him. Obama has a narcissistic mentality and wants to destroy this country's economy remaking it in the image of Socialist Europe.

    Daniels is correct. Obama doesn't like this country! In fact I believe he hates us all. I have been saying this since 2007 and on this Forum!

    Daniels is simply telling the truth. Some don't want to face the truth!

    I didn't say he wasn't telling the truth. But he's also telling a lot of other stuff about himself. And I can't for the life of me figure out why so many Christians are so upset to the point of pure hatred over the things of this world? It just looks foolish.

    I can't figure out for the life of me why so many liberals label dislike and disagreement "pure hatred"?

    Was Jesus upset to the point of "pure hatred" and did He look "foolish" when He overturned the money changer's tables?

    Guess when Christians put on the full armour of God they become foolish looking believers filled with pure hatred. Is that what you're saying Zaac?
