Washington D.C. socialists ruining America's future

June 11, 2014 

I doubt any of you global warming, oops, I mean climate change, proponents missed the article posted twice in the June 7 Bradenton Herald (pages B-7 and A-2).

If somehow you missed it, the good news is that a far left billionaire in California has pledged tens of millions to defeat Republicans in upcoming elections. Doesn't that make you feel warm and fuzzy?

If it doesn't then you should be happy that the socialists in D.C. are spending millions on a legal defense fund to defend illegal aliens who would be called criminals in any other country.

I suppose the Democrats view the tens of thousands of illegals being "imported" and dropped off at bus stations in Arizona and Texas as future "entitlement" voters.

If that doesn't give you a thrill, then the president, having the parents of a deserter in the White House Rose Garden while a real hero rots in a jail of our ally, Mexico, should.

Teddy Roosevelt (and I) would have sent the USMC into Mexico and got him out. The heck with Mexico; they are a bad neighbor and do nothing but damage our economy.

In the 1980s we were concerned about the USSR. In the 2000s we became aware of the damage from China. Now in 2014 I am scared to death of the socialists in Washington and the environmental protection agency.

And you wonder why gun sales soar?
