lobbyist handshake

Today, a citizen concerned about an issue can’t get a word in sideways because “Citizens United” made it legal for those with great wealth and corporations to literally buy a politician.

It used to be that we could trust the news reporter to do the right thing. Not so today. They toe the corporate line. Twist the news stories to fit their agenda. They have all the republican candidates on and ask them soft questions and allow them to say whatever they want.

WAR

The republicans hurry to war but refuse to care for the veterans their war created. With that in mind, I believe that more veterans than ever are going to vote for a Democrat who is against senseless WAR! Bernie Sanders has been against all our wars since he has been a Rep. or Senator. Nearly all the GOP candidates are in favor of said wars. They even want to start another with Iran.

Bernie has always said he is a “socialist” with a small “s”, which means he cares about all Americans. He wants everyone to have equal rights, equal chance to succeed, and equal pay for equal work. So many times I see where he is called a “communist” but he believes in democracy with a twist of socialism.

We are running on borrowed time, folks. Every country needs to do all it can to lessen their effects on our environment.Every person should do all he or she can to cut their own carbon footprint. To speak out against polluters. To encourage others to take action. If we don’t start now our children and theirs will not enjoy the wonderful things that nature has to offer. The beauty of forests, lakes, rivers,and all the other resourses nature has given us.

As far as Sgt. Bergdahl is concerned, I think he should be given the benefit of doubt. We don’t know what he witnessed to make him walk off into the enemy territory. Some soldiers are more attuned to combat while others are less so. I feel that he was overcome by his experience.

My question is; Is it a hate crime for Republicans in Congress to obstructing and disrupting the Congress because they hate the President?

Why not ship the oil to the nearest refinery and distribute it from there? We don’t need to put a pipeline across one of our biggest aquifers. Both North and South Dakota have refineries.

People dressed in military uniforms attend a ceremony to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, in Old Bethpage, New York

Guys in Vietnam (I talk from experience about Nam) saw buddies wounded or killed. Many of us helped get them on choppers to get medical help. Most of us had to shoot enemy soldiers. Believe me that is not easy for some of us. I know it haunts me. It goes against human nature to kill other human beings. Oh, there are some people who like killing, no doubt. But I think most folks do not enjoy taking life from another human.

          I enjoyed the super Bowl, Patriots are my team. I like football as a sport. However I can’t understand how the NFL can accept corporate welfare? How can a business be a nonprofit if they pay the commissioner 44 million a year? I admit that […]

      If there were really such a thing as “justice” the bush administration would be in prison, the cop who killed Mike Brown would also be in prison, and Boehner and his bretheren would NOT be in their lofty positions. ISIS would not have a hold on any […]

Extremists of any religion are the downfall of their religion. Those extremists hurt people of their religion and others as well. For proof, you need look no further than the Muslim extremists killing indiscriminately which gives Islam a black eye or worse. Of course Christianity has those vile “Westboro Baptist” extremists. They don’t like anyone. Seem to hate other religions and soldiers and just about everyone. There are examples of extremists in most all religions.

Cuba-vs-US

Cuba and the US have had a long history of adversarial relations. Yet we have diplomatic relations with Vietnam. Cuba didn’t kill 50,000 Americans, but we have ostracized Cuba! Why? Why have we not done what President Obama has just done long ago?

When the veterans who served their country are retired after 3 or more years of service, they are excellent possible employees for some business.

Many veterans are injured either physically or emotionally or by some illness brought on by (in my case) Agent Orange. We all carry memories that we wish we never had to.
