Putting America first honors nation’s warriors
I just read a long article in the Feb. 9 issue of the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette about the confirmation of Jeff Sessions of Alabama to be the U.S. attorney general.
It seems President Trump thinks more of his Southern friends than he does of many from New England states. There’s got to be a reason for this. I think he knows of lot of “Yankees” are fast-talking deal-makers who may or may not be people of integrity and trustworthy. I especially like Sen. Sessions for attorney general because he has no time for the ACLU and has some doubts about some of the “goals” of the NAACP.
I don’t know about DeVos as secretary of education. She may need some good advisers to keep her thinking straight.
Mr. Price is a rich man, but I doubt he’s a crook. He’ll probably make a good secretary of the treasury.
I’m sure a few years ago the Republican senators (who were in the minority then) could have worked harder to support bills introduced by their Democratic colleagues. And I think now that Democrats (who are in the minority) could try a little harder to work with the Republican majority.
If we love our country and want to see it move forward in every respect, then make America (USA) our No. 1 priority and ourselves No. 2.
Our representatives could no nothing better to honor the thousands of United States military (and ambassadors) who have given their lives for the freedoms we enjoy (even many countries of the world). When we think of the many 19-year-old boys who were denied a happy life at home after World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, etc., how could we not put America first in their honor?
