Sam, you make good points.  I don’t disagree with you that we need regulations and taxes, but…  in the end it really doesn’t matter. 

George Carlin says it better than I.  Oh, I did verify that this was him 🙂

Good old George, He always had an eye for entertaining thoughts. People who laughed were just living on borrowed time.

Now I am inclined to use Mahatma Gandhi quote “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

The letter is almost satirical in content. But still only a person who would care would write with such passion, and be so informative to his work force about his personal life. Some how I dont think this letter is real.

When interested in the facts, I check them out.  Along with several hundred others, I received this email.

Cat

 

In reference to the “To all my
valued employees” letter currently circulating the
internet:

This letter was forwarded to me by a
colleague.  While the letter may indeed be authentic, I was not the author and I
do not know the identity of the original author.  I forwarded it to the “John
McCain Joe the Plumbers” email group prior to the election.  Someone moved my
contact information into the body of the message making it appear that I was the
author of the letter.  I would appreciate your removing my contact information
prior to forwarding this message.

 

Michael A. Crowley,
PE

Cat233 –

You beat me to the punch. I emailed Crowley’s company and got the same reply. Clearly we were not the first to draw this to his attention!

Now my next question is, why is your name cat but your avatar is a dog? Smile

    Real Letter From A CEO to His Employers

To Michael and the others in similar position:

While I was reading the (your) email that was forwarded to me, I wanted to say how true (even though I realize now that it was fabricated). The fact is – I did just what the letter described in the end. Even though we were not as fortunate to be able to support all of our employees until the end, I have moved to South America now where every day is paradise, the cost of living is less than 1/3 of the USA and we live very comfortably. I do not miss the corporate grinder, and the lawyers and swindlers calling daily trying to squeeze an honest business with their "legal" extortion schemes. There is not one day that I have looked back. I am also seeing or hearing every day of more and more business owners (even Bill Gates, etc.) who see the writing on the wall of a sinking ship and are cashing out (under the pretense of "retirement") while they still have value. I also watch the dollar decline daily in the world market and thank the Lord that I got out when I had a better exchange rate. If you have similar feelings, do NOT hesitate (even though I am very loyal to my country) as remember history – every world empire has lasted approximately 300 years and I am sorry to say that it may be our time. Should you have questions I will try to assist as I am able if you care to write.

    The letter may be fictional but the point is dead-on!

This class warfare being fostered by a desperate Obama administration and being supported by an established elite who know corrupted socialism, not true free market economics, is their ticket to securing their wealth and increasing it monopolistically through crony capitalism.

Everyone should read Ayn Rand’s ATLAS SHRUGGED and better familiarize with the true words, intent and warnings of our founding fathers. Our current politicians are absolutely wiping their a**** with the constitution.

If enough people would sincerely educate themselves about what is truly taking place in the US perhaps we’d have a chance at truly meaningful and positive change. At present, we’re not even close so that’s why individuals and small communities/groups need to do their best to prepare and protect themselves from the age of turmoil ahead and spread the word as best they can.

    the fake Michael Crowley letter

The fake Crowley letter was forwarded to me today 12/10/2012 to make the case for less taxes. Below is my response to my sender to

the fictional letter before I learned of its real nature:

I beg your pardon, but I think that is the stupidest thing I have read in a long
time. It is as close as one can get to violating election laws as I can imagine. It is
in essence the epitome of what I think the Right is about; if you don’t get your way,
go out an bully someone, anyone into giving you what you want. Like most bullies, he
is a coward and a quitter.

Look at his whining about his life. Who does he think his is? I had paper routes when I was in grade school, I worked weekends and in the summer on farms and in a grocery store in high school, worked as a longshoreman
and in the Alaska salmon industry to put myself through college and through law school with help from my ex-wife (studying consistently to 1:00 or 2:00AM  for 3 years during school.) I employed people for 20 years (only 1 at a time,) paid my taxes and payroll taxes and didn’t complain about how hard my life was, nor did I threaten my employee with going AWOL when my taxes went up or customers did not pay their bills. There is a word for the kind of guy the writer would be; it refers to an orifice.

From what I read lower taxes do not automatically lead to increased employment or vice versa.

Let the fake writer go, actually kick him out and take his citizenship too, so he cannot vote, he is not a good example of a dedicated, patriotic American. Sure he worked hard to get his company going (from what he says himself and we do not know the entire back story which may be filled by evidence of a golden spoon, friends in high places, etc.,) but he benefited from the U.S. taxpayer paid for infrastructure, government agencies. He made his money, so he has the opportunity to say "I’m going to take my toys (money) and go away". We used to call that spoiled and selfish. And it is greedy when he threatens to kill jobs and take food out of the mouths of 12 people and their families.

    Questioning The Authorship

I think it is because a lot of people say things like, "if he were a real veteran" when a veteran writes something antithetical to what veterans are supposed to stand for. Or bring some other ad hominem attacks or question the authorship of an otherwise moving story or letter or testimonial that advances a cause they do not agree with.

Poet

[quote=Erik T.]

Forgive me guys, but I don’t see why anyone should care whether or not the letter was legitimately from the "real" Mr. Crowley.

The letter offers strikingly candid insight that might help those who feel inclined to cry out that "the government should bail out the people next" to see the real picture. I assume that’s why it was posted here.

I think the author of this letter makes several excellent points, and don’t much care myself whether or not he is or isn’t the "real" Mr. Crowley.
