Continuing Nuclear Threat from North Korea

The little runt in North Korea fired a missile over Japan on Thursday and made a statement that he would destroy Japan and turn the United States into ashes. What do you do with this piece of shit? I believe he WILL at some point, fire a nuclear weapon at Japan and/or the United States-or both. Must we sit and wait for that eventuality?

I am not keen on war but this is a very dangerous situation. I am not sure sanctions will bring this rat to the table as he really doesn’t give a crap about his people. It does not leave many choices and China seems either powerless or unwilling to do what is necessary to relieve the situation.

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….

Have a great weekend…. God bless America!  

Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.

If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.

By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.


In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed,  or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
