Remember that slogan from days past? Boy, I do!
I admit it in the past I was an unashamed radical…..anti-war protester from the 60 and 70’s….and there is one thing that sticks out in my mind about those days……..during protests were met with a chant of “America: love it or leave it” by well meaning conservs and liberals alike….what would become known as the “moral majority” or whatever they called themselves in those days…..we were an enemy within…….according to them we were trying to destroy our beloved homeland….nothing was further from the truth but few listened…….
My question is where are those concerned Americans now? The same Love or leave it bunch are the ones that are doing the destruction not some radical like myself…….it seems those same “patriots” are the ones doing the most damage to this country…..far more so than anything we did back in the day…..
This brings me to my point……in my readings I found an interesting piece of information……..interesting to me because of the abuse I suffered at the hands of those “patriotic” Americans………
Land of the free … to move to another country? A recent poll of 2,000 adults concluded that 35% of Americans would consider quitting the US and living abroad. That number jumps to 55% in the 18 to 34 demographic, per the poll by Transferwise, a UK-based money transfer service. But maybe we’re a little more patriotic than that: When asked the same question, with “within the next five years” tacked on, the overall percentage drops to 14%. (One caveat: These percentages include both Americans born here and abroad.) So how many people make good on the inclination? Only .001% of the country—3,415 people—actually gave up citizenship last year, reports CNBC.
Really? Now you tell me who has done more damage to this country…..the nits today or the radicals of yester-year?
About a week ago I saw a report that Rick Perry was not paying his staffers, apparently he is out of money. Remember last year when he was one of the “anointed” ones…..a front runner if you will…….and now he is barely hanging on by his toe nails.
This news got me to thinking…..4 years ago the presumptive front runner of the 2012 election season for the GOP was Tim Pawlenty and he dropped out before the Iowa Caucasus….
Now on to this election…..Perry looks like he will have to bow out either before or just after Iowa….that is unless he can find a treasure chest with campaign cash inside…..will there be others?
There are 18 GOP candidates and Iowa looms but can all the candidates make it through to South Carolina?
Of course they cannot……..by South Carolina there will be 10 or so candidates left in the field…..it may surprise you to learn that some of the most popular candidates from 2012 will be the first to crap out.
My how times have changed……huh?

Since I am doctor bound today I will be posting stuff that caught my fancy on Twitter…..this one is just too damn good to pass up…..
People know that I do want most everything to be historically accurate…….this one is so far off base that it is beyond ignorant……
Really Michele? Mexicans in China? I really do not think the Chinese were worried about job loss…..more like dying at the hands of the Mongols….but what do I know?
And she was on the intelligence committee (I believe)…….now I see why we are in so much crap in the World…..rampant ignorance!
I reiterate……CAN’T FIX STUPID!
2016 will most certainly be an election that has foreign policy as its center piece…….we have not had something like this since the Vietnam War…..2008 was a kinda Foreign policy but it quickly turned into an election of personalities…..
I have pointed out just how wrong I believe most of the GOP candidates are on foreign policy…..and a friend ask me about the Dems….just what are their stands on the major foreign policy issues……
Thank God I like research or I would be writing that post days…….but I found an article that explains the subject……
If you are thinking of voting Dem then maybe you should see which one of the Dems has the country’s interest at heart…..

Every time we have a news story about ISIS then they, the Repubs, come out of the woodwork to scream at the country about how they will defeat ISIS…..something, they say, Obama is incapable of doing….
Thought I would bring my readers up to date on how these candidates would go about defeating ISIS…..all in one place and NO one has to use any brain power to find the answers……
Personally I do not think that any of these people has an adequate idea……all they will accomplish is putting more Americans in harms way and getting a lot of cash for their campaigns from the M-IC…..
