I sent my response to Lou Pritchett. [Free Republic folks: Be sure to read that response to Pritchett. A typical corporate people-hating hack -- if you think he sympathizes with you, you're more than a few flakes shy of a full box of Ivory] He responded in e-mail:
Since my ‘you scare me’ letter got your shorts in such a knot I hope the following two will increase the discomfort. Lou Pritchett

Farewell America–We’ll really miss you!
Farewell to the America we have loved for two centuries and hello to a new far-left driven president who promised change and will most likely deliver on it,
Farewell, to an America driven by individuals with strong work ethics to one which will resemble French, German, and British societies where big government, big welfare, union controlled labor, four day work weeks, ten week vacations are the rule. Societies which constantly ask “—where’s mine?”
Farewell to capitalism, job creation, lower taxes, smaller government, fewer entitlements, safer cities, personal responsibility and sound work ethics.
Farewell to adequate military defense spending to protect us from our enemies who wish and plan to kill us.
Farewell to close ties with our best and only friend in the middle east—Israel.
Farewell to maintaining a conservative Supreme Court.
Farewell to any chance of keeping Health Care out of the hands and control of government.
Farewell to the famous American standard of living–a magnet to the world.
Farewell to conservative ‘talk radio’ as an antidote to the biased media. The Fairness Doctrine will return.
Farewell to any hope for educating our college kids in something other than liberal mush.
Today is truly a sad day for millions of Americans as they slowly allow the election results to sink in. Today, for the first time in modern history, America took a giant step toward changing not only the direction, but the entire character of the country from free enterprise driven to big government driven.
Our only hope is to start now planning and building a strong conservative base which can reclaim the Presidency and Congress in four years and start repairing the damage. God help us if we fail. Lou Pritchett (www.loupritchett.com)

Take heart America! In only six months President Obama has finally awakened the ’600 pound average American gorilla’ by his “Ready, Fire, Aim” approach with the auto industry, the unions, the banks, Guantanamo, health care, czars, credit cards, and energy. His strategy of deliberately overloading the system with program after program designed to both confuse and deceive the public is right out of the anarchist play book and clearly proves how dangerous he, his administration and his agenda are. A universal truth states that the best indication of what a man will do in the future is what a man has done in the past. Given this, another three and a half years of Obama will be totally disastrous, both financially and morally, for this country. Our only hope is to dump the Congressional clowns and elect adults in 2010 in order to stop the bleeding and then to finish the job by sending Obama back to the thing he does best–community organizing—in Chicago in 2012. Failing this, we fail our children and we fail our country. Lou Pritchett
“Anarchist handbook?” Well, if Lou Pritchett is reading such things, you can bet it’s not because he wants to know what anarchists might do to him. He’s looking for tactics.
Some of the things he claims he fears now, a rational patriot might hope for. Talk radio replaced by fair discussion? Certainly George Washington would have been encouraged by that.
If Pritchett goes on long enough, he starts making Obama look good. Sunshine does not favor the pathogens.
Voltaire’s prayer still applies; one worries when so many come up looking so foolish, however.
One wishes Pritchett would go back to lecturing businesses on how to partner with Wal-Mart. The cynic in him appears to have abandoned all hope in any entrepreneurial spirit left in America. Too bad.
Can somebody get Pritchett a library card?
