The Presidential Elections are getting into high gear. It is normal in our Nation that every four years one side tells us how well we are doing and the other side tells us how poorly we are doing. That has become the American way. Regardless of which side is in Office at a given time, the other always says the opposite. Our job, as voters, is to figure out which side is closer to the truth?..If that is possible. News coverage now is so swift and rapid, and you can bet there is always a small army of news analysts and experts ready to dissect whatever just came out of any candidate?s mouth within three seconds of the words being spoken. It is just the world that we live in today, I suppose. Mitt at present is taking it on the chin because of remarks captured on a hidden camera?.And Barack is under fire because our U.S. Ambassador and aides in Libya were killed and we didn?t know in advance that it was going to happen.
To complicate the matter further, demonstrations and threatening attacks have been suddenly made in multiple countries in the Mideast, mostly aimed at our Embassies. Of course, I do believe these ?events? have been orchestrated to some degree by our old friends in Al Qaeda. What outwardly appears to us as ?spontaneous? flare-ups, were probably having plans laid a year before for the actions to occur when opportunity presented itself. And now, with the release of some fourth rate movie made in our country, unknown to nearly anyone, we find ourselves suddenly staring that ?opportunity? in the face?.. embroiled in an extension of the multi-Nation politics of the Arab World. Foreign Embassies are an extension of the country they represent and are viewed in that manner by all foreign countries under International Law. Through the years our nation has pumped millions of dollars into these countries through our Embassies, but in truth, the monies that we contributed were probably siphoned off before much of it got into the hands of those we had hoped to help, but went instead into building up local palaces and playgrounds for those in power?..or directly into Swiss bank accounts under the ownership of some nation?s ?leader?. After a half century of sending money, I believe we did it wrong?..We should have been sending foodstuffs, schoolbooks and means for them to eke out and improve their living scale and situation in life. Probably, we just sent money because it was easier to transfer?.That is the sad aspect of the whole deal. Most of those folks that we were trying to help didn?t need money??Their most basic need was something to EAT! I think we have forgotten and overlooked that one, simple aspect. There is one common denominator for relief of hunger and that is namely FOOD. As I recall, fifty years or more ago, I believe we did start off sending food, shovels, hoes and seeds through the CARE program, but somehow the radish seed, wheat and goose-necked hoes turned into money just sent direct.
