Article about the President

GREENVILLE — To the editor:

On June 28 the London Times ran a full three-page article about our current president, including a full page color picture of him. Their reporter, Chris Ayers, gives detailed information about his life, before politics, that our left wing reporters do not publish. It tells us something of how he is viewed in other nations around the world.

The headline title of the article is “The President Who Did Inhale.” Ayers includes many quotes from a new biography of Obama written by a Pulitzer Prize winning author, David Maraniss. He tells of “Barry” Obama’s gang activity as a member of the Choom Gang.

Everything in my letter except for my comments in this paragraph and the last paragraph, are word for word quotes from the Times article.

Obama wrote in his school’s yearbook, “Thanks Tut, Gramps, Choom Gang and Ray for all the good times.” Ray was a “freakin’ scary” dope dealer supplying the young Obama with mind-altering herbs such as Maui Wowie, Kauai Electric and Kona Gold. The Choom Gang actually seemed to have a blast most of the time. Obama didn’t just smoke pot, he created his own pot smoking trends. He developed a technique for maximizing the high from any given puff on a joint that was being passed around. “Total Absorption” or TA he called it. You had to hold the smoke in your lungs for a predetermined length of time to make sure the drug was being fully uploaded into your bloodstream.

Premature exhalation was considered such a crime, it was punishable by missing your next turn. Obama was a pioneer of “roof hits.” These were administered in the Choom wagon by lighting up and keeping all of the windows tightly closed.  That way nothing went to waste. Obama’s enthusiasm for the magic weed didn’t stop there.

When the joint was making the rounds from Choomster to Choomster, he would jump the queue (line) while shouting “intercepted.” Thus he would get more than his fair share of hits. The article quotes famous people’s comments including Ronald Reagan’s, “Smoking one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-Bomb blast.”

My comments:  If that is true, maybe it may explain some of our president’s thinking, or lack of thinking. If we can vote him out of office, we will also get rid of his cabinet members and czars that had to pay delinquent taxes before they could take their jobs. We will replace Treasury Secretary Timothy Giethner, who has been as lost as his boss for four years, and Attorney General Eric Holder (what a joke). I rest my case.
