I'm 70, by, Robert A. Hall, Five term member of the Massachusetts State Senate and a former US Marine
I’m 70 - Since I was 18, except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but still job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.
I'm tired of being told That I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I'm tired of being told That Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers;" of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery;" of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Quran and Sharia law tells them to.
I'm tired of being told That, out of "tolerance for other cultures," we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund Mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada, while no American nor Canadian group is allowed to fund a church, Synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance..
I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.
I'm tired of being told That drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off?
I'm tired of hearing Wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.
I'm real tired of people who Don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the Government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 70... because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughters and grandsons.

REGARDING YOUR HEALTH CARE: The
alternative: further debilitating attacks on health care providers of
all kinds, then a "One-Payor System" (ie. the Government), and then a
Committee deciding who gets Health Care at all.
WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR SOME PEOPLE TO BE TRUTH-TELLERS? Chris Powell, of the Journal Inquirer in Connecticut, has it down pat.
See his most recent article entitled: "FOCUS SOLUTIONS ON POVERTY AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION", in The Day (www.theday.com), Sunday, August 28, 2016, Opinion, pB4. "Danbury
Mayor Mark Boughton explains it: Democrats want more illegal immigrants
so the party will get more impoverished voters who become dependent on
government, while Republicans want more illegal immigrants for cheap
labor, and the losers are the native middle class."
in this election it's so important for the majority of voters to throw
all the Establishment (Republican and Democrat) OUT. And if you decide to vote for a third party candidate or to stay at home, SHAME ON YOU.
"VAPING"...AND VAPID. A GOOD DESCRIPTION OF TEENAGERS WHO "VAPE".
Read this carefully: Among
other effects, including very likely on the respiratory system, it will
take ten years to understand the health effects; and those who "vape"
are much more likely to take up nicotine smoking in the future.
on top of everything else, this is an entry-level agent, as the Tobacco
Industry well knows - those "DISSEMBLING MISCREANTS".
As I have said several times before in recent years, "Amnesty" is a
fig leaf of "Conservatives" who don't know what the hell to do with
this self-manufactured problem...to cover a flaccid organ. Trump's
current approach is a clear sign that he is a realistic problem solver
and not just another cynical and self-serving politico.
FREEDOM OF THE PRESS:
vital Right for American citizens, a shield against tyranny, has become
a sword in the hands of those despots inhabiting our Government, our
colleges, our main media, and the so-called academia.
A MUST READ:
The comments of Sheriff Clarke of Milwaukee, WI. on the riots this week
in his city. Please look them up.
The Sheriff, a Black man, has it exactly right. He says it
with experience, with conviction, and with clear sadness.
ONCE AGAIN, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA:
stupid and inexperienced...or the Manchurian Candidate?
THIS IS A TEST.
On the evening of August 16, in West Bend, Wisconsin,
Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump gave an important speech
the the American people.
described many of the serious ills, systemic and chronic, facing
America. In citing the causes of these problems, he named
In offering solutions, he was clear, direct and specific.
Donald Trump's presentation should be read and reviewed by every
American and especially by every American voter.
AND HERE IS THE TEST:
to find his speech, exactly as offered, in any of the major print or TV
or social media - except on Fox News. Many media outlets won't
dare. But the search will be very worth-while, if you are
interested in the facts and in understanding Donald Trump.

TRANQUIL MIDDLE EAST...UNTIL AMERICA BUNGLED INTO IT"
is the outrageously revisionist "History" that many of our idiotic
Leftists would have you believe as they accuse the Bush administration
of lies and worse when leading America into war in 2002. And forget
about 9/11; and forget about the strong evidentiary case that was then
being made for WMD's in the hands of the international criminal Saddam
Did our leaders, especially Donald Rumsfeld,
conduct the war there effectively? NO, as a review of my Rapid Response
entries for years between 2003 and 2008 will attest.
But the Middle East has been a dangerous cauldron since at least the
1960's, and actually since the end of the Cold War.
we did belatedly, since 2002 and until Obama beat a hasty retreat, was
self-defense - better on enemy foreign ground than on American soil. It
was then called "pre-emptive"...but we had already been hit numerous
times, including 9/11.
And what has Obama's approach produced? A
much greater disaster in the Middle East, many millions of displaced
persons, a nuclear Iran and international ISIS.
As George W. Bush probably has said in the privacy of his home since
"YOU'RE DOING A HELL OF A JOB, BROWNIE".
See the references posted below for the true history of the last 60
"HE WHO DOES NOT KNOW HISTORY IS DOOMED TO REPEAT IT".
See the article by Fred Lucas in this week's Newsweek magazine
"ARE WE HEADING FOR A RIGGED ELECTION?
IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE".
NOW, THIS IS PHILOSOPHY.
GOD'S PLAN FOR AGING
seniors do not get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that
seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their
glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking. And God looked
down and saw that it was good.
Then God saw there was
another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they
would drop things requiring them to bend, reach & stretch. And
looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God considered
the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional
calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing
more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.
if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s
God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter
under your breath.
Nine Important Facts To Remember As We Grow Older
#9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.
#8 Life is sexually transmitted.
#7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which
one can die.
Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell
them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use
the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
#4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the
hospital, dying of nothing.
#3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no
attention to criticism.
#2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now
the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
#1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today
may be a burning issue tomorrow.

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on
welfare. Over 70% of the
United States' annual population growth, (and over
90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from
immigration. 29% of inmates in federal
prisons, are illegal aliens.
We are fools, for letting this continue.

WHERE DO WE GET
Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. Adding a tax to your
retirement, is simply another way of saying
to the American people; you're so darn stupid that we're going to keep
doing this, until we drain
every cent from you. Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax, on Retirement
Income. In other words,
tax what you have made; by investing toward your retirement.
This woman is a nut case!
You aren't going to believe this.
Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax, on all stock market profits
(including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds)!
Alas, it is true -- all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants, and
other unemployed Minorities!
This woman is frightening. She quotes...' We need to work toward the
goal of equalizing income,
(didn't Marx say something like this?) and in our country; and at the
same time limiting, the amount
the rich can invest. (I am not rich, are you?)
When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:
'We need to raise the standard of living, of our poor; unemployed, and
minorities. For example, we
have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need
our help; along with
millions of, unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall
profits taxes, could go a long way to
guarantee these people; the standard of living they would like to have,

outmatching sixteen other Republican wanna-bees, after breaking all
records for popular primary support, after bearing the failure of many
of the other potential candidates to honor their pledge to support the
winner of the process, after dealing with the treachery of the
Republican Establishment before and especially since the Republican
Convention, all the while dealing with a Yellow Press that puts
Heinrich Himmler in perspective and a Federal Government ordered by
Obama not to do its duty regarding evidence of Clinton corruption and
"extremely" negligent behavior in office...after all of this and more,
Donald Trump now announces that HE MIGHT LOSE THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
of course he might lose, you IDIOTS. And that prospect does not even
begin to address the ultra-liberal Democrats and their blind hangers-on
who have literally lost their ability for rational thought.
only thing that will save this candidacy, the Presidency and the Nation
from the steep downward spiral that is already underway is THE WILL OF
THE PEOPLE, all the people, expressed through their Vote in
November. No one can stop that - except the People.
To that end, I suggest the following three references:
1) the book "Armageddon", a portrait of Hillary Clinton in living color;
the book "Legends and Lies: The Patriots", reflecting the feet of clay
that some of our greatest leaders had at times, only to be rescued from
themselves by the will - and the blood - of the People;
section on my web-site (www.asthma.drsprecace.com) entitled "The
Clinton Years" - published with great relief immediately after those
years had concluded.
ONE MORE THING: DONALD TRUMP IS A GOOD
MAN AND A PATRIOT: well - educated, accomplished, experienced, a family
man, a superb negotiator with solid ideas, and a man who owes nothing
to and fears nothing from the Establishments of both Parties and their
legions of dependents.
For once the PEOPLE have a clear choice...but not the Establishment
types whose only choice is their cynical self-interest.
Now, for once: PAY ATTENTION!

The predations of "Isis" have been active in America for a very long
time, first as Slavery and then as Abortion.
a military mom could write such a fantastic testimony and rebuke to the
Muslim pawn used by Hillary’s campaign at the Dem Convention to trash
Donald Trump. The Facebook letter below is so great and so powerful
that it’s gone viral. We hope you will read and share because it’s time
to support our military 100% in this war against terror!
the Muslim Gold Star father that spoke at the DNC…..I have some
thoughts on your comments. I am a Blue Star mother. My deepest
condolences on the loss of your son. No family should have to endure
such a loss. That being said….while your son is a hero, you Sir, are
NOT. My son has served three tours of combat in the countries you and
your family came from. Iraq and Afghanistan were his introduction to
adulthood and service to something bigger than our individual selves.
He was blown up by an IED set by your countrymen. His Purple Heart is a
testament to his love of America and our freedoms. I have suffered
through his multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan….never
knowing from moment to moment if he would return home in a flag draped
coffin. It is torture when a mother wakes up to this day after day and
sees the atrocities happening over there on the news and being helpless
to change a thing. My comments to you will probably offend you. I do
not apologize. These things need to be said. Unlike you, I could NEVER
use my son’s death as a pawn piece in support of a woman that left
“America’s treasure” (Hillarys words) to die unaided in Benghazi. The
same woman that says vile things to her military details there to
protect her. You, Sir, are supposed to be a witness to your son’s
bravery and sacrifice. Instead you stood on a stage and promoted the
woman that upholds the very people that killed your son. You became a
political PAWN that promotes pandering to our enemy. You desecrated
your son’s memory by your words. You did not utter one word of outrage
at anyone but Donald Trump. Are you forgetting that Trump did not kill
your son. He had nothing whatsoever to do with these wars. His memory
should mean more to you than five minutes of fame on the stage of the
party that voted to send your son to war. The same party that for eight
years has denied and cheated our veterans out of their deserved medical
care. Who for the last three years has cut our veterans pay.
note…your wife stood SILENT. She stood with her head covered, never
uttering a word about her loss. She submitted to you being her voice in
front of the country. She abdicated her free voice to you…..as would
any good Sharia wife and mother. Let me say, this was not lost on the
other American military moms….myself included. Had it been my son being
“used” as a political PROP, no one could have silenced me. I would be
voicing my grief, my pride, my love of him to the world. A man cannot
speak to a mothers loss. No man knows her heart at the loss of a child.
She did her heroic son a disservice by her silence. She should have
uncovered her head and her heart to be the American mother you claim.
And last if all….you dared to flash your picket Constitution and ask if
Trump has read it. I dare to ask you, Sir….HAVE YOU READ IT? If you say
yes, then I dare ask you HOW you could represent that party? HOW can
you support this woman? How can you affiliate your family with a party
and candidate that cannot even call the radicals that killed your son
what they are? How can you support a current administration that
diminishes your son’s death by denying he had an enemy? And if you have
read our Constitution, how could you cover your soulmate in colorful
submissive sheets and have the audacity to speak FOR her? Your son died
for that Constitution you so carelessly waved around on national TV in
support of the very party that exists to destroy it. As a soldier’s
mother….NO ONE could ever speak for me. I find your outrage artificial.
I find your party affiliation offensive. I find your wife’s silence
atrocious and offensive. I find YOU a political FOOL. I find your son
to have been your greatest accomplishment, and you, Sir, have
dishonored him. I hope you memorize that picket constitution so you
will understand what it means to be a REAL American and hero. You are
not one. You were USED. Your son WOULD NOT be proud of you. My only
hope is that when MY son goes a fourth time to combat radical Islamic
terrorist’s, ( and he WILL) he will know that his mother never stood
submissively SILENT about an American hero. Yes, your son was a hero
that could not be manipulated but, you, Sir, are a weak minded FOOL. I
would love to hear your thoughts this morning about the 1500 American
soldiers on the air base in Turkey being held as basic hostages as I
type. Not a word from this president or party you adore…or the media
that so thoroughly manipulated and used you and your wife. So…what say
you Sir??? What will you say to a Blue and Gold Star family if these
heroes die? In my opinion, you will say NOTHING.

GOVERNMENT IN ACTION:
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, CRIMINALS...CATCH AND RELEASE.
This is what is CRIMINAL!
DEMOCRAT or REPUBLICAN,
everyone should watch this short video. PLEASE !
This is a must see, totally mind boggling, only 3 minutes
This message is very troubling!
This is why Trump’s platform about illegal immigration is resonating
with so many Americans. Watch this and pass it on, only 3½ minutes.

REGARDING IMMIGRATION TO U.S.
What's this? History. Logic. Reason.
Can we handle all that?
IF DONALD TRUMP LOSES THIS ELECTION,
HE WILL HAVE LOST TO DONALD TRUMP.
Before the events of the last week, even respectable liberal columnists
like David Brooks and Tom Friedman were waxing hysterical over the
prospect of a Trump win...to say nothing of the rest of the fevered
main Media, especially the New York Times.
But the last week has given everyone who is against Trump - including
the Establishment of Right and Left and their dependents - new hope and
an opportunity to pile on.
Everyone, that is, except THE PEOPLE, whose massive small donations
have raised Trump funding nearly to a par with that of Bonnie and Clyde
- overcoming an earlier wide gap in this critical campaign element.
The "man in the street" will stick with Trump. But what about
some of the others: women and Latinos? Incredibly, many women - whom I
will henceforth call females - have staked their entire effort at
parity with men on their "right" to kill human beings at will. This is
insanity; and it will continue to hurt them and their goals throughout
And can Latinos not learn from the graphic lesson of the demise of the
Black community under the burden of the "support" of Washington, of
their cynical and self-serving "leaders", of the self-destruction of
their family life...and also of their rampant destruction of human life
But none of this will count in November if Donald Trump does not learn
to elevate his game and his persona to the legitimate demands of the
Only Donald Trump can defeat Donald Trump. And he will have failed THE
PEOPLE who have placed such faith in him. That would have
long-lasting toxic results for broad participation in future elections
- and for the future of this nation.
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY "LOVE FEST ".
We expect political conventions to require "suspension of credulity" in
order to just enjoy the spectacle...if that's your thing.
But the level of hypocracy demonstrated by the DNC and its headliners
this week is clearly revealed in Cal Thomas' recent column:
"WIKILEAKS OUTS DNC AND ITS HYPOCRACY", in The Day Friday, July 29,
Now aren't you glad you went to bed? I am.
Once again: Anybody but Bonnie and Clyde. And there's much more to
Donald Trump than you will ever read or hear about in the main Media.
This movie gets all "A's" from me. And I believe that it is
also Academy Award material in several categories.
only minor criticism I might offer is that the demolition derby toward
the end of the film is a bit too long. Perhaps the price for
metal is was peaking when the film was being made.
