It is time for comparisons that give us doses of reality. Fresnans currently pay $0.61 per hundred cubic foot of water; Los Angeles residents pay $4.90 per hundred cubic foot. An L.A. friend of mine pays more for water than for gas and electric. Even doubling our water charge in five years is a California bargain.
Since World War II 70 years ago, we have had troops in Japan and Germany. Whose dumb idea was it to remove troops from Iraq and from Afghanistan? Welcome to ISIS, Mr. President.
When South Koreans were attacked, President Harry Truman mobilized the United Nations to defend them. While Ukranians are dying, President Obama micromanages the distribution of coats and gloves for their defense.
President Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union, “an Evil Empire,” America acted accordingly, and the USSR collapsed. Obama charges America and Christianity with evil, and Islamic terrorists act accordingly, beheading Americans and butchering thousands of Christians.
Never miss a local story.
In the much-maligned Iraq war we flew 800 bombing sorties in one day and Saddam Hussein was history. Now we fly 12 sorties a day against ISIS and America, the world’s best peacekeeping nation, is becoming history. How do these all compare?
