what puzzles me…

Just when the economy is on the upswing, real estate has climbed out of the tank into which it took a nosedive, Wall Street is back to hedging its bets, health insurance is spreading its coverage to include the less prosperous, veterans are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel…Speaker of the House Boehner and his congressional cronies are trying to stir the Middle East pot in the hopes that America will muscle its way back into another war.

Perhaps Netanyahu and those supportive of his hawkish stance should stop hiding behind words and take up weapons to defend their beliefs. They don’t need to convince us to do their fighting for them. They should try some sacrificing on for size instead of sitting back in relative comfort, while thousands of men and women leave jobs, families, and homes behind…some even dying…to effect others’ politics.

Politicians have taken to playing with peoples’ lives. We’re like pawns on a chess board being sacrificed for the good of the king and his minions. 

While I hope I’m wrong, it seems the pendulum will swing the other way in the 2016 run for the White House. It’ll be interesting to see if all fall in behind the leader, or if in-fighting breeds discontent.

And where does that leave us?

…sliding backwards into oblivion???

    • I’m with you. However the way Speaker of the House Boehner and Majority Senate Leader McConnell were speaking on 60 minutes this Sunday…they’re inclined to do more than President Obama. They want the U.S. to speak more hawkishly, rather than holding to sanctions imposed against Iran as leaders from other countries agree is the better position for now. Boehner and McConnell seem ready to commit billions and boots on the ground. No skin off their teeth. They’re hiding back in Washington.


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
