Dropping bombs

Bomb

This is the bomb President Donald Trump dropped today on Afghanistan, the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb, the MOAB for short or the Mother Of All Bombs. Today was the first time this $314 million, 21,000 pound, non-nuclear bomb has ever been used in combat. How long has Donald Trump been president? 83 days. How many bombs has he dropped in those 83 days? More than President Obama dropped in 2016. “If you look at what’s happened over the last eight weeks and compare that to really what’s happened over the last eight years, you’ll see there’s a tremendous difference.” President Trump said proudly today.

How long would it take Donald Trump to launch a nuclear strike? About five minutes. Better yet, who can stop him from pushing the metaphorical nuclear button? No one.

“Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule in foreign policy: Don’t do to other nations what we don’t want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?” – Ron Paul

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

    This is one issue that I agree completely with Ron Paul on! There was a time when Republicans believed in Isolationism. They focused only on our country! Oh, those were the days! 😉 ❤

  3. I said that he would start a war. Why? His billionaire way of finding jobs for the poor as cannon fodder while his play mates will build ammunition factories all over the country bringing work to make America great again he is and always will be working for his future and non of his children will fight, no the poor take what they are given and they should be given good schools and education.
