If something is presented as an accepted truth, alternative ways of thinking do not even come up for consideration.

[To start off, #IncompetentDonald hasn’t made America great again.  He wouldn’t know where to start or how to go about doing it even if he really wanted to make it happen.  So, to now claim  he’s “done” it (made America great again), and now wants to be re-elected to keep it that way, is even more laughable.  (Yes, we haven’t even had the mid-terms and #DonTheCon is already running for re-election.)  It reminds me of “W” standing in front of his “Mission Accomplished” banner at the start of the Iraq war (1 May 2003).  We are still there (in Iraq and Afghanistan) over 15 years later…  If you are not in the 1% which the Republican tax cut greatly benefited, ask yourself: “Will I be better off without healthcare and with reduced Social Security and Medicare coverage?”  That is surely where we are headed if Republicans retain control of both Houses of Congress.  John McCain is gone.  Obamacare will go down if there is another Republican controlled vote to kill it.  The tax cut has already worsened the federal debt AND deficit, and despite their claims they will protect Social Security, Republicans are already targeting “entitlements” (SSA and Medicare benefits) in their rhetoric.   How long will it be before they are reducing benefits in their legislation?  America, it is long past time to wake up and smell the coffee.  —  KMAB]

Having a breadth of intellectual experience is vital among those who have great responsibility and authority, and in our history we have seen the occasional, sad result of having leaders who were narrow-minded simpletons.
 

–  Colonel Jack Jacobs (Ret.)
Medal of Honor recipient
from his book “If Not Now, When?
 

[The Colonel’s words are lifted from their original context, but as I first read the words I was struck by the damaging blows to freedom in this country of eight years of Bush/Cheney and the  potential costs of having Sarah Palin near the White House.  Ten years ago, I thought John McCain was a decent and honorable man (even if he is a Republican), but I will never forgive him for two things: accepting the torture of prisoners and inflicting Sarah Palin on America.  His actions and inactions dishonored himself and every other tortured POW/MIA he ever served with in Vietnam.  His decision to have Sarah Palin as his running mate (VP) and place her within one heartbeat of the Presidency showed an equal disregard for the future safety of this country.   I still can only question the sanity and intelligence of anyone who would support her in a future run for ANY political office.  —  KMAB]
