Speak Softly and Carry a Big Tweet


A.F. Branco captioned this one:

Speak softly and carry a big tweet. Boko Haram must be trembling in fear with all the #saveourgirls and #bringbackourgirls hashtagging.

If only we still had the clout to convince anyone that we might actually do anything with a big stick (a la Theodore Roosevelt). But I seriously doubt anyone around the world would consider us to be cause for caution at this point. Our federal leadership has not flexed any muscle and empty rhetoric with zero follow-through doesn’t keep terrorists at bay.

Our military is still the finest in the world, but the American people aren’t the only ones who’ve noticed it’s reduction in size and effectiveness through shutdowns and cutbacks.
