I letter to Barack Husein Obama

            It is not a simple task being President. I was the president of
    R&R Round House. It included Michael Wild, Andy Chicket and me.
    We combined our s-scale trains into one railroad. I had my dad's
    American Flyer trains. Michael had the Lionel version and Andy was
    very skilled at model building. The wiring was like spaghetti. Back in
    the 70's, the switch throttle was a box with two plastic levers. These
    boxes threw the switches on the rails. Red and white wire ran from the
    boxes to the terminals at the switches. All of the switch throttle wiring
    was run to the transformer, which had a single throttle. The transformer
    had a splitter panel for accessories, like the train horn box or building lights.
    It was a lot of fun to run those trains.

            However, there were issues over access to the train set. The train
    set was at my home in the basement. Michael and Andy wanted a key to
    the basement door. That way they could work on the layout and play with
    the trains, when I wasn't home. Dad was concerned about passing out keys
    to the house. He put a different key entry on the door from the basement to the
    upstairs house. I would have many debates over how the landscape and
    buildings should look, but my decision was final. I was the President.
    It was my house. Hence, we come to the point. President Obama, this
    country is your house. Franklin Delaware Roosevelt declared a state of
    emergency at the beginning of the his administrations economic crisis.
    He called it the "New Deal."  You have that right.

            I suggest you act quickly. Popular opinion is fickle. If the Republicans
    have their way; all the trains will stop running. All they care about is electing
    a Republican President. Sean Hannity,  "I'd vote for any Republican, running
    against Obama." They want to shut down the Federal Government. It is an
    old Rebel ploy: "Less government is good!" Rush Limbaugh. Take control of
    the train, before it is derailed. Do you really want Rufford Murdock's politics
    for the next four years?

    That's my two cents.


    PS: I'm sure you can find my number. Call me anytime.
          If you need some more advice.
