Let Them Do Their Own Fighting…

2014-04-08_09-21-05If we can just let other people alone and let them do their own fighting. When you get into trouble 5,000 miles away from home, you’ve got to have been looking for it.” – Will Rogers, 9 February 1932

Thanks Will for reminding us what common sense, which seems to be a rare commodity these days, sounds like….

My Republican friends like to say that they are dismantling the country’s safety net in order to rescue those trapped in it. That is the reason many give for cutting so many programs to the poor.   Well I say we need to rescue the rest of the world from their dependence on our boys and their guns. Let’s cut our military budgets in half and let them do their own fighting.  Think what a few hundred billion bucks a years would do to reduce our deficits!

    You are so right. I think other countries who want to fight should fight. Fighting in the long run does not get you any true success. President O’bama has realized that from Iraq and from Afghanistan. He believes in diplomatic conversations and other countries sharing in the cause of talking things out. bravo!

      So true Mary. I can’t see where any of the wars we have fought in my lifetime of almost 70 years have resulting in any difference at all in the long term. They cost us perhaps 200,000 American kids; that is the sad part of it all.
