The joke isn't funny anymore...

I admit it. I sent Barack Obama an online birthday greeting the other day as a joke. It wasn't a very nice greeting, actually. It was a very straight forward critique of his job so far as POTUS, an earnest request for him to stop dividing this country by playing the race card non-stop, and to drop the golf outings in favor of a trip to our Southern borders, along with my best wishes for a one-term presidency. I thought it was kind of fun and got a giggle out of it.

Evidently, not only did his handlers not bother to READ the greeting, they sent me a thank you note. That thank you note from Mitch Stewart was followed up by another one from the Emperor himself. And now, if all the thank you notes weren't enough, I am being spammed by OFA to request my help in supporting their Marxist, Banana Republic agenda.

This is freakin' ridiculous. I guess it's got to be the first time in US history that a President has ever trapped email addresses for his brown shirts to use to spam the resistance. Geez. This is nonsense.

STOP THE SPAM, POTUS... or is that SOTUS?!

Dawn --

Right now, my job -- along with those of my colleagues -- could be in jeopardy.

I'm a public school teacher in Philadelphia. And, like most states across the country, Pennsylvania is facing some bad budget shortfalls.

Without federal help, a lot of teachers like me -- as well as other public servants like police officers and firefighters -- will lose their jobs. Maybe you know some of these people. Maybe it's you.

Democrats in Congress are trying to do the right thing, proposing emergency assistance for states to preserve more than 100,000 jobs like mine. They're racing back to the Capitol for an emergency session this week to pass this bill and save these jobs.

But Republicans are standing in the way. Minority Leader John Boehner is calling the bill a "payoff" to "special interests" and attacking every Democrat who is fighting for us.

But I'm not a special interest. I'm a teacher.

Can you join me in telling House Democrats that they have our support as they fight for our jobs?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- and the entire Democratic Caucus -- have decided to rush back to Washington to make sure that hundreds of thousands of workers like me will get to keep our jobs. In addition, the bill will actually create even more job growth by closing tax loopholes for companies that ship American jobs overseas.

But the Republicans are going to do everything they can to prevent this aid.

Please stand with me, in support of Democratic leaders who are standing up for folks like me:

Thank you,

Wendy C.
