Within the backdrop of the world and the world's economy we have our economy, then our stock market, then our stock and we realize that we are so interconnected. I have a hard time watching this president, speaking from Cuba. He spent just a sentence or two on the attacks in Brussels. Sad. Almost shameful.

We'll do okay, but the world will suffer. Until people realize that the world is controlled and shaped by the aggressive use of force, we will continue to be at the mercy of these thugs. We need our "rough men" on the wall to protect us. Weakness only invites more attacks.

I watch the TV screen with the images of the blasts and sadly feel a shame for America. I love this country so much, but when others do not, especially within our ranks of leadership, it saddens me.

They are rank.
