My Take on Recent News

Has it been a month since I last posted? Much has happened in that time which troubles my thoughts.

Our president toured parts of Europe and The Middle East and made a number of speeches. He apologized for what the US has done in the past. I suppose we will no longer seek to free enslaved people, or feed the starving, or stop cruel dictators especially if they are Muslims. That might be good!

This administration "bailed out" two of the big three auto companies. OOPS! They went bankrupt anyway.

The president claimed the government had made a profit on T.A.R.P. money "loaned" to banks because a small percentage had been paid back with interest. REALLY? I thought accepted rules of accounting required all loan monies had to be paid back before claiming a profit.

Two acts of terrorism occurred within our borders. One was the shooting of a "late term" (read viable baby) abortion doctor while in his church by a right wing Christian gun fanatic. The second was the shooting of a security guard while on duty at the Holocaust Museum by a racist white supremacist. OH YEAH! The shooting of two uniformed soldiers outside an US Army Recruiting Station is not to be included as a terrorist act because the shooter was Muslim.

I do so wish I did not care about the future of America. Maybe if I was a minority or at least had a college degree I wouldn't. Hey, come to think about it I am a minority. I'm "elderly". I'm freckled. I'm still married to the same woman after 52 years. I'm a practicing Christian. I'm a legal gun owner and none of my guns ever caused me to rob, threaten or kill anyone.
