Let’s get out of Afghanistan. Trump’s Right, we’re losing… just like we lost Vietnam and Nicaragua…

August 6, 2017

If we leave Afghanistan, those people over there will figure out solutions to their own problems. OR… Maybe they won’t. How could we possibly care? We have problems of our own and the era of the USA being the Daddy of the world is over. Those people over there have to get along without our help… We went to war in Afghanistan because the Afghan people needed our help fighting the bizarro-world Islamic FUN-da-Mental-Twists… As it turned out, dropping bombs on their country did not help at all and actually helped recruit people to Freedom Fighter [Terrorist] organizations. Who wouldn’t want to fight against destructo robots in the sky [drones] raining death? If some foreign country bombed MY home town, I’d be angry too. Have you seen photographs of Mosul? If freedom=devastation, most people would decline. The wars in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan are simply evil marketing schemes to sell weapons to the Pentagon… Big profit for easy work.  I read now that ISIS has spread to the Philippine Islands… This war between the Christianity and Islam has been going on for a Thousand years and is likely to continue for a thousand more. It’s a waste of taxpayer dollars and American lives to continue this pointless fight.

I oppose the NDAA as it funds the F-35 airplane. A corporate welfare program for Lockheed.

July 17, 2017

The F-35 is an incredibly expensive new airplane that the USA has no need for. If we simply reduced spending on war we could afford to pay for healthcare for all Americans. As it is we are stuck in Forever-War in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. We recently defeater ISIS in Mosul but the victory was not greeted with Parades and Cheering in the USA because ISIS has now spread to different countries and different towns… This huge increase in spending for the military encourages Trump to start another war in order to justify the spending… and get even more for the corporate greed machine.

An open letter to Republicans. by Tom Nash

June 3, 2012

Do you miss the good old days when conservative Republican statesmen were thoughtful, considerate, kindly gentlemen like Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan? Do you yearn for a time when civility, propriety and decorum ruled the day? Are you fed up with the regressive, belligerent, obstructionist stridency of the current Republican Party?

On behalf of the Democratic Party, I am putting out the welcome mat to any patriotic Republicans who are unhappy with the decline of your party. You will find us to be a friendly, civilized party who champion the American principles of freedom, fairness, justice, tolerance, integrity and truth. We appreciate civil discourse and diverse opinion, so there’s plenty room over here for anybody who truly loves America.

You could be one of those Blue Dog Democrats. They are basically reasonable, conservative, decent Christian folks who believe that we can all work together to solve America’s problems. They would probably be Republicans if they could tolerate the smell over there. Most of them are about as conservative as President Reagan was.

Christian patriots are welcome too. All of the Democrat Presidents down through history have been good Christians. Despite what you hear on Fox News about President Obama being an Islamic terrorist, he is actually a devout Christian who practices good family values. Jimmy Carter was even a born again Southern Baptist. What would Jesus do? He was a man of peace who healed the sick and fed the poor. With values like that, he wouldn’t feel very welcome in today’s Republican Party.

So anyhow, come on over here and join with the Democrats for the betterment of America. We can all work together to undo the damage caused by that radical Republican free market agenda that concentrates all the wealth at the top. We can rebuild the middle class back to those good ole days before trickle down economics. We can create new opportunities for our children to prosper. We can rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and make our schools great again. Even rich Republicans would be wise to join with us. When the middle class is healthy again, they will spend lots of money, and you can get even richer.

Your new Democrat friend,
Tom Nash

Peace Rally in Eureka, CA. “Aware, Awake and Appalled” says the sign…

For years we have held Peace Marches and Rallies in Eureka. Starting in 2003 before the War in Iraq started and every year since… Eventually, the President of the United States got the message and the War in Iraq ended. Except for the Blackwater Mercenaries… They remain… but, they are civilians and employed to protect our oil companies… The 1% feel it’s a good investment. That’s why our Peace Protest has turned into an OCCUPATION.

End War in Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

May 1, 2011

Do we still have thousands of soldiers in Iraq? Do we still employ thousands of mercenaries? Sub contractors? What ever happened to the Iraq War? Is it really over or is there just less media coverage?

What a fine Peace March we had today

What I really like is the Samba Parade Band… Even on a rainy day, they are fun to dance in the streets with…

Spy on the Government... It's a felony. When they spy on you, It's a Patriot Act.
