Yes, Pilgrims ... Yet Another ... Non-Poem!

If You find any 'COMMON SENSE' in this Treatise, please advise ... OK ?

OH ... the Pic ... 'EAGLE-SENTRY' ... ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!!









MY TAKE...


© - Tom Hyland - 9/19/12

1. Close All of our Embassies in the Middle East - All Arab Countries!
Also, Africa, and a few Others. Let All their Tribal and Religious
Sects Fight and Kill One Another! Let ‘them’ try to Build their own
Democracies! FAT CHANCE!

Bring ALL Our Americans Back Home to SAFETY!

ALSO - Warn all American Corporations, who have ‘invested’
Overseas there (by ELIMINATING American JOBS Here) to bring
All their People Back Home also ... for their Own SAFETY, because
We will no longer Be There to Protect them!

ALSO - Change the Tax Laws for Corporations who have been
Reaping Huge Profits for Decades by ‘Farming Out’ Jobs in Foreign Countries that ... forever into the Future, if they continue to do so,
THE TAX WILL BE 50 PERCENT OF ALL GROSS PROFITS!

2. Stop Buying All Oil from OPEC and Venezuela!
Let ‘them’ see what happens when the Largest User of Oil, the US,
Cuts off our Demand! These Arab Sheiks and ‘Royal Families’ have
had more Money (Hundreds of Billions) for Decades now ... Let them
Wallow in their own Oil!

Most of our Oil now comes from: Canada, Mexico, California, Texas,
the Gulf, and Latin America anyway!

3. Close All Military Bases over there in the Middle East, as well as South
Korea and Bring ALL Troops Back Home! Let those egotistical
suckers TRAIN Themselves ... especially Afghanistan and Iraq!
See how great they do ‘Getting Along’ with one another!

Some rough ‘Math’ - IF we bring back home about 100,000 Troops,
Using a 6-Foot span, from Soldier to Soldier, place them all along the
Mexican Border, while a WALL is Built! I estimate it would be about
130 Miles initially ... then move them All West, and do another 130
Miles. Doing this repeatedly, about 12 times, would cover around
1,500 Miles!

While this process is occurring, let all Local AMERICAN Fast-Food
Companies, like: Pizza Hut, MacDonald’s, Burger King, Kentucky
Fried Chicken, Royal Farms, 7-11, et cetera supply ALL the food
For our Troops. This would provide LOTS of Employment for this
Deployment, creating All Kinds of Jobs, both Cooking and Delivering!

4. Change the Friggin’ Pentagon Defense Budget - No More: Tanks, Trucks,
Hummers, Battle-Ships, Cruisers, Aircraft Carriers ‘Flat-Tops’, et
Cetera ... Build a huge Armada of DRONES Instead! Let a Few ‘Desk
Pilots in Texas, or wherever, fly ‘Round-The-Clock’ Reconnaissance
Missions, keeping an ‘EYE’ on the Middle East, and Striking when
appropriate, as necessary!

5. STOP ALL IMPORTS FROM CHINA! ... ALL!

MAKE AMERICA A MANUFACTURING COUNTRY AGAIN!

BUILD TEXTILE MILLS, FACTORIES, START SEWING CLOTHES
AGAIN, RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA! AUTO PARTS, APPLIANCES,
AND MORE, MORE, MORE!


BENEFITS:

NO MORE SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN ‘HARM’S WAY’ !!!

NO MORE: DEATH - DISMEMBERMENT - DISABILITIES -

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF JOBS CREATED!


I HAVE MORE ...

THIS IS JUST A ‘START’ IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!

While I find your ideas quite amusing and perhaps sensible, I have traveled to some of these countries and have found that they are not oppressive even while under martial law. Like watching the daily burglaries and robberies in my city, one would think that terrible activities are going on all the time when actually most people are living in peace, engaging in commerce and happy.

When we take an American centric view we tend to go back in time when things were different (most likely worse, but forgotten). To end world trade now would bring great disaster on our economy, so dependent upon corporation activity that we don't even comprehend, because we are so removed from the source of our food, fuel, and core values. For example, football, NASCAR, and golf have become our religion, and shopping has replaced working for our daily needs.

Sadly, the complete opposite of what most of our so called 'leaders' want today. You have a long, hard, probably impossible task ahead of you.

Well, you seem to have it all well laid out, Tom. You do give much to ponder upon. Love and peace to you,

Oh yes, one clear thinking brain, but will the politicians listen, if the powers to be have all bought them, and the usually suave ordinary citizen have been defranchised of their vote, or .....
I have a job creation plan, build millions of guiloutines, for all the scumbags and new greedy kings, that have bankrupted America, Eisenhower warned us of the defense industrial complex, he was already wise of it then, yes drones, and electronics are the new defensive walls to protect ones perimeters, no need to be fighting somewhere else, beat them off at home, should they dare come, bless ya!
