The War on Tragedy

by SANFORD KELSON

President Obama declared that the bombing in Boston was a ‘tragedy.’

No investigation is needed. It is self-evident that the bombing was a tragedy.

Delay will be interpreted as weakness.

The US must declare a war on tragedy immediately.

The biggest tragedy in the world today is North Korea and its evil leader Kim – Hitler incarnate.  The US must attack and attack and attack until it wipes out tragedy from the planet.

Some may worry about the cost in treasure at this time of great austerity.

No problem.

The Treasury can print another trillion dollars and workers’ wages can be cut in half, social security and medicare eliminated.

And after the US finishes off Korea, the next tragedies to wipe out are Syria and Iran.

Go Team.

Our country.  Right or Wrong.

Nuke ‘em.

I encourage all citizens to report all known tragedy to the government immediately.

God Bless.
