America Will Never be a Socialist Nation / I’d Rather Die Standing

(Scroll down please)

Does anyone remember the terrorist attack?  On 7 January 2015 at about 11:30 local time, two brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Armed with rifles and other weapons, they killed 12 people and injured 11 others. Wikipedia

“I am not afraid of retaliation. I have no kids, no wife, no car, no mortgage. It surely is a bit dramatic but I’d rather die on my feet, than live on my knees.” – Stephane (Charb) Charbonnier, publisher and editor of Charlie Hedbo.

More Democrats to Skip Trump’s State of the Union speech

Rep. Hank Johnson (D, GA) and at least three other members of Congress have said that they will not attend President Trump’s State of the Union address tonight. Read this story at presstv.com.

You might remember that this is the same congressman who during a House Armed Services Committee hearing in January 2011, expressed his fears while questioning Admiral Robert Willard, head of the U.S. Pacific fleet, about a proposed increase of forces on Guam, that the island might capsize if we sent more troops, families and logistics there. I’m relieved that Democrat congressman Hank Johnson won’t be attending the State of the Union address. I was really concerned that Washington DC might TIP OVER into the Potomac if he were there – ADB.

Johnson, an attorney, is also a former county judge.
