About Me

I am a 100% service-connected disabled veteran. So my wife doesn't have to write this every time I want to post, I have Parkinson's Disease or maybe I don't. I have been to 10 neurologists and it is split 6-4 for. I am on Rasagline which has stopped most of my tremors. Unfortunately nothing stops the brain cells from dying.

We have Muslims in our town.

I don't talk to the women without an okay from their husbands. There aren't any orthodox Jews living here, but when I lived in Florida I did not talk to the women without an okay from their husbands. In both cases, I never tried to touch the women, I mean like shake their hands. In Turkey I would hold hands with my male friends when we went for a walk. In the South, I live in Eastern NC, there have times when meeting a woman for the first time, they hugged me. I am straight, but even in the Castro District of San Francisco I would walk with my male friends and hold hands. It has never bothered me.

If it is Medicare,

why would the government need a new government-run health care program?

How many job openings are there in Ohio?

Is the state government going to hire all Medicaid recipients who apply?

I may be totally wrong,

but after reading the posts, I have a thought on why there is so much anger shown by some of you to others. Those of you who watched the video and those of you who only know about it do not know how to cope with it. Excuse me, but sometime it is difficult for me to find the right words. Catharsis comes to mind. You need to find some way to scream. Me, I just cry.

I know of someone else who would write something and then write that he didn't write it.

By writing the 40s and 50s, I was just showing that I grew up in a more civil time. In other words we learned how to debate which seems to be different now when people would rather use profanity and name calling. Debating shows style and intellect where profanity and name calling show a lack of intelligence. If you decide to reply to my post without using your intelligence but only wishing to bait me, I will disregard you totally in the future. So far you have not shown me anything for me to waste my time with.

I don't "alert".

I say what I have to say and leave it that at. If others want to "alert", let them. Not what I do. In my day, 40s and 50s, we fought our own battles.

No,

it was a personal attack. If you do not personally know this person, then your last paragraph was a personal attack.

If I was asked if I am a socialist or a white nationalist my response would be,

what is your definition of a socialist or a white nationalist. Other wise, if I did answer a socialist or a white nationalist he or she might misinterpret what I answered.

I hope this finds you in good health.

I am 75 and in good health. I will continue driving until I am incapable of driving because of ill health or death.

Too many people in the US voted for Trump because he wasn't part of the establishment.

Too many people should have read Paul Krugman before voting. "A country is not a company"
