Ignore that...

Hitler rose to power; across the Atlantic Ocean in America banks shuttered, out of work fathers stood in bread lines, the Great Depression deepened.

German stormtroopers marched into the Rhineland, Austria, Sudetenland, Czechoslovakia – standing in bread lines people shook their heads, Hitler doesn’t matter to us.

Hitler rolled tanks into Poland, Belgium, Holland, France, Denmark, Norway, British soldiers fled Dunkirk, bombs fell on London – still struggling in the Great Depression isolationists howled, Don’t send guns to Britain – that’s not our problem.

Ignoring Hitler didn’t work out well.

Biden was elected, food prices soared, gas prices soared, Putin rolled tanks into Ukraine, Iran’s Ayatollah started a war in Israel, out to hobble us the most powerful dictator of all, Xi, cheered them on.

In Congress, howling, No guns to Ukraine, no aid to Israel, isolationists blocked both. How will that turn out? Remember what happened the last time we said: That doesn’t matter to us.
