Neilizms, is the political voice of artist, actor, and writer Neil Feigeles. After spending most of life quietly on the side watching the Powers That Be throw us practically in a ditch, as racism and greed have taken over the political world we live in. As I watch the rest of the world seemingly catching up to ours, I find it hard to believe ours is going backwards...

“THE STATE OF OUR UNION” IS STRONG Then why can’t the Republicans see it?
Talk about devided government. Our President stands in front of the American people and spends hours telling it like it is. Good, bad, and ugly… oh sorry, that was how they on the other side of the aisle treated our Commander-in-Chief. Ugly… Nothing he said, the rate of unemployment, the success of Obamacare, his recent achievements. Even his killing of Bin Laden… nothing could get them to at least acknowledge his accomplishments. The eye opener for me, was seeing them practically yawn at his announcement of his goal to rid our world of Cancer.
Not one Republican, as far as I could see, cracked a smile, not one stood up, nothing. No applauds… Me thinks the only thing that would make these ‘patriots’ smile was if our President resigned and appointed ‘W’ King of the World.
Whenever he’s questioned about how he couldn’t warm up to Congress, he always say’s “thats one of his big regrets”. Sorry Mister President, this one I can’t agree with you. This ‘unfriendliness’ has nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with the prejudice against you. If not your color, then at least your politics. Remember for a while when they tried to take credit for Bin Laden’s death…
A few months back as the War Mongers scream blood murder when you ‘forced your will’ on the world and forced them against their wills to your Iranian Nuclear agreement. How many people said they knew best. How weak was how President. You can never believe a word they say.
Well today the world applauded the news that Iran was releasing hostages. A trade of some kind was happening. They were freeing hostages that the right had complained weren’t included in the original deal.
Remember as they screamed bloody murder? I do, as if it was yesterday. They whined that without the freeing of the hostage, that Iran was pulling the wool over our President’s eyes. As usual he was giving away the world. As if they were making him the fool.
Well, all the news isn’t available yet, but at least today it seems diplomacy has worked again. Instead of a possible Nuclear war in the foreseeable future, thanks to our President’s initiative, we now have gotten to the point that Iran has done everything they agreed to do. And even before they got their sanctions removed, which wasn’t a part of the deal (as far as we know now), they are releasing the hostages. A win win for diplomacy. A lose lose for the haters of the deal. ou know the ones who have been wrong on every major policy issue for years.
As as expected the right can’t budge an inch. During the most recent Republican debate, this is what Governor Chris Christie said, when describing our President. “petulant child.”
And after the release of the Iranian hostages today:
The prisoners “should have been released without condition, but you know, the Iranians have treated this president with disrespect for years and he continues to take it.”
Really, well, if anyone knows about “Disrespecting” our President… what, have the Republican’s been hospitable? They’ve been trying to remove any memory of his legacy, before he even got into office… just saying.
