Dear editor: Why does the Obama government hate me? I was born and raised in a poor family. I was an average student in school. I dropped out of school and joined the Air Force and honorably served my country for 4 years. Afterward I got my GED and I went to college for 4 years at night while holding down a fulltime job. After graduation, I was employed in a career field I liked and worked my tail off to make a successful career.
