THE UMBRELLA – A TOUCHING STORY   

 

One rainy afternoon, a group of protesters were gathered outside the grocery store handing out pamphlets on the “evils” of America.       

I politely declined to take one.               

There was an elderly woman behind me and a young female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined.    

The young protester gently put her hand on the old woman’s shoulder and in a patronizing voice said, “Don’t you care about the children in other countries or our black children in America?”   

 The old woman looked up at her and said: “Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea, and a son in Vietnam.   

All three died so a naïve, ignorant, self-centered  bimbo like you would have the right to stand here and badmouth our country. If you touch me again,

I’ll shove this umbrella up your ass and open it.”

The Kabul fiasco is a complete failure of the Pentagon and Joe.  They can lie forever.  This is all we know.  It’s a SNAFU.

Kabul Not Cat:  Here are some new and old clips of the DISASTER in Kabul.  The first several are about the plane and chaos when people are trying to get on board.  One shows 2 people falling off the plane after it is about a half mile high.

Would Nancy want on this flight of her and Joe’s well organized DISASTER ?  There were over 20,000 Americans left in Kabul.

I wonder if the Americans left behind while others are rescued first will vote Democratic, if they aren’t killed ?

Joe, you are no good.  Have any Democrats criticized Joe ?
