I'll refine my "inner Trump" and try not to bend any ones feelings. In case I do, I have plenty of "internet butt hurt forms" so don't worry.
I'm kidding of course. And Mao.. Carter was President when the current muslim republic of Iran was formed by the then exiled ayatollah Khomeini, by driving the Shah out of power, who was a friend of America and we did a lot of trade with Iran, under his rule. During his rule, I spent 2 yrs in Iran on a government contract, so I got to know the country pretty well. It was known then as a center of high fashion and culture. The Persian women are among the most beautiful in the world, [something I remember, being a young man at that time], who dressed in stunning ways in the latest European fashion.. not in hijab and burka like now. The Ayatollah and his muslim minions took over the country, seized the United States Embassy and held all the occupants hostage for a very long time. Mr Carter was not effective in recovering them, or setting the hostage takers straight. An Embassy is Sovereign Soil, so seizing it is an act of war, by all known rules.. yet nothing was done that made any difference and America was made to appear a weak country, which set the stage for the current circumstances. The steps going forward would make a history thesis so I will hold back on those, they are easily found as a matter of record. Terrorist demands were made and not dealt with by the office of President in a way that marked Mr. Carter forever as weak as a leader. Mr. Regan was elected to replace him and announced his plan to recover the hostages who had grown nearly gray while waiting to be rescued, and they were released within only a few days of him taking office...which further empathized how non preforming Mr. Carter had been. In the interest of "list purity" I submit this only to give closure to my earlier comment.. so everyone stand at ease.. nothing further on the subject. I understand Mr. Carter is given very little chance of survival at this point. We have a remarkable number of former presidents still living. More than ever in history. On the Mercedes side, I just located TWO complete sets of 15 slot 15 inch rims, while looking for a set for my "new" CD which is coming into restoration. So I now have 10 each 15 slot, 15 inch rims.. and a bunch of Bundts [so many I've lost count]...17 I think.... Wheels anyone? Grant...
