Clinton gave them our missile guidance technology.
Obama gives them our oil. And state dinners.
The last 3, 4, maybe 5 Presidents have given them our manufacturing. And our money.
What’s not listed, they’ve stolen, while we talk restraint, and civility, and incentives.
And even the military is dumbfounded by their tenacity.
The time it took to build the Great Wall having been removed from history books.
And in Delaware, the newest new thing in schools is to teach foreign languages to

The money we waste on unreliable alternative energy should be put to work building reliable and inexpensive natural gas generation, not smart meters, or wind and solar projects with expensive transmission requirements.

This is just another Progressive idea from the Federal government.
