Next up is this CNN chick (?) who came up with the idea that ISIS are terrorists because they are poor and have no jobs. Never mind that they might have jobs if they hadn't spent most of the last 36 years destroying the infrastructure needed to HAVE jobs... much of which the US of A built FOR them because 50-100 years of British rule never helped them to learn how to build anything in the first place. In all fairness, let's see what she actually said...
"We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether…. "She went on to suggest that the United States government should work with governments in the Middle East to help boost their economies.
What she didn't tell you- but I can with just a little research and not the Poly-Sci degree she got from IU- is that of the five countries that have contributed the most per capita fighters to IS, three of them are considered "high income" by Gross National Income per capita (#8 Sweden, #9 Denmark, and #20 Belgium), and the other two are in the "Upper-Middle group" (#103 Jordan and #111 Tunisia). All that time studying the Middle East and like so many others, just can't grasp the concept of simple hate.

But, God taught me another valuable lesson tonight. I never found it in Proverbs, but it sure belongs:
"It's no use talking to a horse's rear. It has no ears- it won't listen."
