Our leaders in Washington, some if not all, are liars and crooks. They're selling and giving away our America. The leader in most of this is our President. I just read in the paper that the Chinese have offered to buy the big hotel companies, they're out-bidding the others.
Some of the leaders at Myrtle Beach are willing to sell Myrtle Beach to the Chinese. No one should be allowed to buy American land unless you're a citizen of this great country.
The decent hard-working people of this country have stayed silent and let the others demand entitlements. It's become sad to hear farmers say they can't get help to gather their crops. This is not the America I was brought up in.
I have lived through the Great Depression and World War II. At the end of World War II, our military if so desired could have taken the world and this president is afraid to stop ISIS from killing innocent people and some of ISIS sooner or later will attack over here.
Never miss a local story.
In going through WW II, my ships were in major battles: North Africa, Sicily, Italy, Iwo Jima, Okinawa. I watched the flag being raised after the invasion - what a sight. I also saw some Marines go down and not get up as they landed. I woke up at night with these Marines on my mind. This letter is just part of what's on my mind at this time.
