  1. With all the bad news, it is easy to fail to recognize what things are going right. Check out the below interview for what the US military is doing right all around the world.

    1. I’ve never doubted our military. Can’t say the same for the Commanders-in-Chief, their advisers, and Congress. So agreeable, fast-acting, and generous when it comes to aid for other nations. So inept, selfish, partisan, and utterly gridlocked when it comes to doing what needs to be done here at home.

    1. I like Biden. I really do. He’s a good man hamstrung by a hopelessly divided Congress and a Supreme Court ready to throw a Molotov cocktail into the middle of it all.

      1. johnthecook…Joe Biden has been in American Politics for more than 40 years and has been President for more than two years and I dare say America is no better off now than when Obama or Trump were in charge. Let us all remember the job of the Supreme Court; THEY DO NOT MAKE LAW. It is their job to ensure the Constitutionality of it. If Americas hope rests in Politics…we are doomed!

    1. Thanks. I came across that quote of mine last night and was stunned and depressed to see it was posted in 2014 and nothing’s changed since then! If anything, the situation is worse.
