Communism Ruled

Turn Out the Lights, the Party’s Over…

This was my response to an e-mail I received earlier and after rereading it aloud, I couldn’t believe that this is how low America has sunk.  This America, I do not know…SCAN5I am doing fine and thanks for asking.   All is well with me, but Obama or Obummer as I like to call him, is destroying America from within.  He has things so screwed up and now not only is he monitoring the U.S. citizens phone-calls and e-mails but he has expanded the, “National Security Administration’s” reach to include spying on other countries ie; Germany.  He has told lie upon lie about the healthcare that he has mandated everybody purchase or pay a fine and the longer you do not pay, the higher the fine.  This is the first time in my 59 years that I no longer feel free and the restrictions are getting tighter all the time.  The uninformed voters elected him to office the first time but when he was reelected, I feel that it was only because of his knowledge of manipulating the vote outcome. I mean when certain counties voted 100% for him, not a single vote went to his challenger, that told me that something was terribly wrong.

I am currently saving a little money so that I will be able to get my daughter and I out of here when the time is right and


before he closes all banks.  I’ve never been put in this sorry state before, but have read about regimes that began this way.  Yes you must pay for your health insurance and and the government decides which plan is best for you?  That is what Obummer is doing to us.  He ran on a platform of, “If you like your doctor you can keep him, and if you like your current healthcare plan you can keep it.” 

Yesterday he spoke saying that, “People say they have to pay more for this plan, well sure, but that is only because the plan they had didn’t include many things, like maternity care. Your old plan was a bad apple,” truth is, Obummer is the bad fruit making his entire administration stink!  Everybody has to pay for maternity care even if you are a single guy!!  I am only being true, this tyrant scares me, for nobody will come to America’s aid because we are touted as the land of the free. 

Sorry for my ranting this morning.  And so please tell me how things are with you?  Will you be going to your dad’s this weekend?  I just left my dad (85) at his restaurant we had a cup o’ coffee together. 

You know I lived in the Philippines for 5 years and they also celebrate, “All Saints Day” on the 1st of November.  Many hold picnics at the cemeteries and spend the night so the 2 countries are the same in that respect.  I’d never heard of that until I lived there.  America has, “Memorial Day” at the end of May every year in which the cemeteries are jammed with people bringing flowers and cleaning the gravesides and surrounding areas.

Well on a lighter note, Stephanie is all excited and brought her costume to school with her today.  This evening she will be going out with a friend whom she hasn’t seen in a while.  I’ll send a couple of pics; she will be trick or treating dressed as Cleopatra.

Cleopatra, really.
Cleopatra, really.

Always be safe.

Your friend,


Steve Richie

Hi folks, Two lives in one lifetime. The first me, lived to age thirty-four. That Steve was overly confident and oozing with pride. Then, on a record heat-setting day (107º) here in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and western Wisconsin, a one car near-fatal wreck left me in a two-month long coma. I emerged much as I was before minus certain physical capabilities, but my mind seemed mostly in tact. The crash and its effects did not change me (I emerged a happy individual) but the deeds perpetrated against me in the ensuing months from my wife of sixteen years scared and humbled me as I was dragged down with nothing left by my wife who now had guardianship over all of our accounts. And neither would she allow me to see our kids. She took everything out of, "Our" names and changed them to her name only; then would not allow me to our home and divorced me. I was angry, but no more. I spent half of 1988 and more than half of 1989 in hospitals, nursing homes and a three month stint at a head-injury rehab center where I was being taught how to re-enter society as this different person, that I didn't know. I was not able to return to my previous line of work, a self-employed decorator, you know, painting and paperhanging. It was a physical job which required much dexterity, finesse, and a good grasp of numbers. I returned to the beginning, school, but on a community college level. One of the instructor's liked my writing and I began focusing my attention on that. I attended classes at, "The Loft," A Place for Writers in Minneapolis. While there, a classmate of mine was having her friend from New York, a CBS executive, to her home for the holidays and asked me if she could do a critique on a couple chapters of a book I was writing, "A Day I'll Never Remember" and I obliged. When she returned to class the following Monday she told me that the exec wanted a ten-page synopsis of the book for a possible movie; I was excited. After obliging for that also, I never saw or heard from her or the guy from CBS. Next thing I knew I was watching a movie called, "Regarding Henry" starring Harrison Ford and the scenes of therapy were exactly like what I went through and had written about. Regarding Henry - could've been my story except that, "Henry" got his head injury from a gunshot and his wife stayed with him throughout the ordeal. Coincidence I'm sure, though, the therapy scenes entailed what I described in the book so I always wondered..... My hope, my dream is to bolster our income for my daughter and for myself. I am and have been raising this beautiful, talented little girl who was diagnosed with autism at age two, since 2006 singlehandedly. I divorced her mother the same year following complaints that I spent too much time with our daughter. However, Stephanie began school with no need for special education. She has been reading since age four and understanding what she'd read. Stephanie maintains straight "A's" on her report card, has published two books (through school) and has been selected as an, "Honors" student for seventh grade English. My ex moved to New York to be closer to her sister and has been remarried now for a number of years. Well, that's only a snippet of my sixty-one years and I would like to thank you for reading, thank you.
