Weekly Comments: Freeing Kidnapped Hostages. Protests for Hamas. Millennials Want How Much??

#1183, Nov. 26, 2023

President Biden is happy that the Hamas terrorists are releasing 50 hostages, traded for 150 Palestinian prisoners who attempted to murder Israelis. One American, 4-year-old Abigail Idan, was released today and the President was pleased she could be reunited with her family. It’s sad that he didn’t remember Hamas murdered her Mom and Dad on October 7.

Does Thailand have more clout than the United States? While we seem to be negotiating through Qatar, a key ally and financial supporter of Hamas, the Thai government went directly to Iran and demanded all of their citizens be released. Why doesn’t President Biden demand that Iran order Hamas to immediately deliver ALL kidnapped hostages? We have enough military within easy striking distance of Iran; just let the Ayatollah ponder his future.

Is the Hamas terrorist organization winning the propaganda war? Ignorant protesters continue to rally support for Hamas and hatred for Israel and Jews everywhere. Protesters may think they are generating good will for Palestinians. But they won’t sway anyone with common sense. The young American women protesting have no idea how they would be treated in Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Who is paying all these young protesters and their leaders? Paying their transportation and providing their disgusting signs? George Soros has given these groups millions of dollars. Does Iran also contribute millions? I’m sure the protesters are not donating their time.

We just finished a week in America of wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving. For a lot of young folks, it’s going to take a lot more than “wishing” to make them happy. According to a recent survey by The Harris Poll, our Millennials (age 27-42) claim they need a $525,000 salary to be happy. Yes, a half a million a year. Do they realize how hard most people in that salary range work? Definitely not 9 to 5, for 4 days a week, with 2 months’ vacation. Most millennials say they are glad to spend $7 for a cup of coffee every morning ‘because of the joy it brings.’

In the same Harris Poll, old folks said $124,000 a year is plenty. Perhaps because we know how to brew our own coffee from a can of Maxwell House.

Historic quote by Will Rogers:

“In the days of [our] founders they were willing to give thanks for mighty little, for mighty little was all they expected. But now neither government or nature can give enough but what we think it’s too little. Those old boys in the Fall of the year, if they could gather in a few pumpkins, potatoes and some corn for the winter, they was in a thanking mood. But if we can’t gather in a new Buick, a new radio, a tuxedo and some government relief, why we feel like the world is agin’ us.” DT #2594, Nov. 28, 1934
