I was born in the great Depression when one out of four people lacked a job. It was a time before Social Security, before unemployment insurance, before minimum wage laws and before the government provided assistance to children. I was a teen during World War II when in 1942 the Japanese navy had nine aircraft carriers and we had three. I lived when Germany had an army of eight million and they were the first to develop guided missiles and jet planes.
But, for some strange reason we did not have political leaders who nonstop warned us of dire things to occur. According to Republicans, America is “facing the worst threat to its survival in history.” ISIS has about sixty thousand fighters, no planes, no aircraft carriers, no artillery, no guided missiles and certainly, no atomic bombs.
What has become of the American people who fought a terrible civil war and its leaders were convinced of victory? FACTS: Since 9/11 fewer than 200 Americans have been killed in this nation. Oh, over 300,000 have been killed by guns wielded by native born Christian Americans.
As President Franklin Roosevelt calmly told us: “You have nothing to fear but unreasonable fear.” There is NO threat to America –other than the one posed b God-fearing Christians who want to kill and kill–themselves!
