Don’t appreciate rhetoric


My family, wife and her family immigrated to America and the first stop was Ellis Island. My point – to enter this country, U.S. laws/policy must be adhered to not overlooked for the political vote. I am a Christian, great grandfather of 19 Christian children, enjoy my many friends of many nationalities and colors and respect everyone’s religious beliefs and refrain from using offensive language.

An American and WWII veteran I resent being referred to by the “left” as being racist, a capitalistic pig, etc. I am not a Tea Party member but I don’t remember seeing offensive signs or riots during their gatherings as Americans are now seeing during these so-called “Wall Street” marches. When questioned some could not even read the posters they displayed explaining they were paid. Most replied they wanted jobs but were referring to the jobmakers as capitalistic fat hogs. In plain words these rioters (some carrying signs “Support Socialism”) did not know what the hell they were talking about. Hundreds arrested, officers assaulted – some injured, and our illustrious president stated these people were just frustrated and expressing themselves like the Tea Party marchers, Pelosi stating God bless them.

Financing Brazil to drill for oil to be sold back to America, throwing away a half billion financing a failing solar company, “Fast and Furious,” lie after lie, idiocy, verbally degrading America before the entire world. Four more years of this joker and this country may be changed for ever. The president’s wife stated “this was the first time she was proud of this country.”

This writer says this is the first time I have no respect for this man – as the president. Close the borders, heavily fine business that hire illegal immigrants, bring back lost manufacturers, drill for oil and let Americans pray and wear the American flag pin and display the flag whereever they please. Easy to do but not with this administration.
