Anyone need a better reason to withdraw troops from around the world and be like Switzerland!

Let the backwaters places settle their own problems.

All we do is give them a unifying target.

Just make it clear, you, or your unruly citizens, attack us, we’ll retaliate tit for tat. So, these two bit “leaders” better get their people under control. Or resign. 

And, just to be clear, I’m anti-war pro-choice pro-life little L libertarian, but I’m not an isolationist or a pacifist. Live and let live. But, don’t mess with me or mine. But by the same token, “sticks ‘n’ stones”.


I read this obit on Mother’s Day and felt bad for that woman and baby! 


I’d make every politician attend every funeral. Think they’d get the message?

    I’m sorry for your loss and that of your family. I am ashamed that your loss was done in “my” name.
