Sorry Folks – We’re Screwed

There will be a lot of potential first-time voters in 2016. Young people who were born in 1998. Many of them will not vote, of course, (especially the men) because when you are an 18 year old male your primary concern is getting into some girl’s pants. And I’m fairly sure they won’t be reading this blog, because it is written by an old man, and they are busy texting each other across the table.

Nonetheless, on the off chance that they may stumble across this essay, I think it is my duty to give them a short history lesson. And I think that is imperative because they are the ones who are going to have to live in a world where the whole Middle East will be rife with atomic bombs. If Israel doesn’t step up to save the world, the dangerous plan negotiated by John Kerry and Barack Obama will surely cause death and mass destruction.

Why would two people agree to a “contract” that guarantees Iran will develop an atomic bomb or two, and we are even going to give them billions of dollars to help them do it. And, if anyone (say, Israel) tries to stop them, the monstrosity that Kerry and Obama are so happy about agrees that WE will protect Iran against anyone attempting to sabotage or curtail their path to the bomb. (Oh, and we also allowed them to keep developing (or buying) ballistic missiles that can reach the United States.)

I just re-read the preceding paragraph and, although I know ever word is true, I still can’t believe it. So let’s look at it logically. We know that Obama has shown great animosity toward Israel, while bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia. In his autobiography he plainly states that in a time of strife he would stand with the Muslims. Maybe he just hates Jews. We know his former pastor, Reverend Wright certainly hates them.

And then there is John Kerry. Young people have no idea of what a hollow man Kerry is. While every other draftee served at least a year in the Vietnam War, Kerry was only there four months. He did shoot a NVA soldier – who was already dead and lying on the ground. He did put in for a Purple Heart because he scratched himself on a bush. He did return and testified before Congress that American Soldiers were killing innocent civilians. He did make a show of throwing his “hard earned” medals over the White House fence. (He really threw phony medals, but it was the thought that counts.) He did appear with Jane Fonda in anti-war protests when our soldiers were still fighting that war. And, he did search out the richest widow he could find to marry so he wouldn’t have work for a living.

So is anyone really surprised that the Iranians (whose Quran tells them it is fine to lie to “infidels”) made a pretense of negotiating an atomic bomb deal where America gave up everything, and they got just what they wanted? Of course, Kerry and Obama will be long gone (Kerry on his sailboat and Obama on some Chicago syndicate’s jet) when the next holocaust takes place. It is those young 18 year olds who will have to face the prospect of annihilation. Maybe if they realized that, they might give up chasing the elusive poontang long enough to vote in 2016. But, I doubt it.
