Have we forgotten?

Wise words from a Republican:

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children…
This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.”

–Dwight D. Eisenhower, US President, 1953 -1961

    • Trump and his cabinet are dismantling democracy and the constitution itself. It’s very, very scary. I’m glad this helped you get through your day. I have good days and bad ones but this president and his actions are extremely triggering for many of us.
      BTW, it’s good to see you here again! I loved your latest article — I am going to link it here so others can read it!

      • I haven’t been keeping up with blogs the way I’d like to. A lot of people are suffering high anxiety and stress (ptsd symptoms) because of the election…the hate between people is so vitriolic it makes want to me shut down and isolate. That’s not good so I’ve been forcing myself to write and get those feelings out there where I can deal with them.

        Recent cuts in the budget have left me bewildered. The cost of maintaining three homes for our new president is ridiculously expensive—who could possibly think cutting food-for-kids would be a reasonable way to balance the budget? Heck—just make 45 stay in the White House one week-end and send the savings to Meals-on-Wheels.



    • The Republicans used to be decent people — think of Abraham Lincoln. It’s gone downhill ever since Reagan to become the Part of Greed and the Party of No.


      • To think I used to quietly say, “R-R… R-R…) reference to the ‘two minutes hate’ in 1984.

        Now, though:

        “My leader, tis of thee,
        Sweet lack of liberty,
        For thee I toil.
        Land where my mother fried,
        Land where my father cried,
        From ev’ry factory-side,
        Let slavery sting!
        Baaaa, men.”
