Dear President: Do not be
a wimp or show weakness
The U.S. is still on the world’s hit list. Why are we paying Iran $1.8 billion to “help” their nuclear power program? Why are we selling stealth technology to Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries who claim to be our allies? F-22 and F-35 technology to Japan, Taiwan and other Asian countries?
Pull all our troops and all our military technology and equipment out of all Muslim countries. Prepare to seal our border, especially the southern border. We have electronic capability to monitor the whole border. That, with guard towers every 300 yards manned by U.S. military personnel authorized to use deadly force under certain rules of engagement. If I were a large property owner on the southern border, there would be a lot of bleached bones at the border. No trespassing!
In the last couple of years, there have been several incidents of evidently paranoid and trigger-happy cops. If a cop is that paranoid and scared, he needs to not be in uniform, nor carrying a firearm. Maybe they need various ammo loaded with rubber projectiles. Less civil liability and needless deaths.
Politicians in both parties are scared to death of Donald Trump. They’re afraid Trump will do everything he says he will if elected. He has the intestinal fortitude to do it, whereas all the other so-called leaders are sucking wind.
I’d love to be his secretary of state. As I am not politically correct, nor do I care whose toes I step on, I would probably have made at least 15 countries mad at us in about two weeks.
Future President Whomever, do not be a wimp and show weakness to any country. Do not try to disarm us. We will fight. Respect us and put God and state back together again. Or we will fail as a nation.

Rethinking March Madness
The NCAA Final Four games were not televised on Channel 3. Could this be considered discrimination or what?
