Weakness breeds contempt
Some wonder why it gladdens others that America will not host the 2016 Olympic Games. It’s not that citizens of other countries don’t like us – travel outside the U.S. and you will personally experience the hospitality shown by people in other countries to Americans. No, the problem is we are showing weakness and those who would take our place as “king of the jungle” | Read More »
