2016 State Of The Union Show

At tonight’s State of the Union show, when President Obama says “as Americans, that’s not who we are,” he’s lying to himself. We, as Americans, are not suicidal. Unlike him, Americans believe it is his job to protect us first.

He will be pushing the idea of taking Syrian refugees out of their country, continent, culture, and language, and bringing them here. Despite that our own DHS and FBI say that there is no sure way to vet them. And, ISIS has not only said they would infiltrate the refugee population, but some of them have already been caught here.

The best thing about tonight’s “show” is that it will be his last.

Long Knives Out, Trump

The long knives are out for Donald J. Trump, now that his polling numbers continue to grow, or at the very least, show no signs of falling. A great example of this is this impish article about him by George Will. News Flash George. There is no conservative party. And never was. There was a conservative president, Ronaldus Magnus (as Rush Limbaugh affectionately calls Reagan), but not a Party. In fact, the Republican Party was attacking him like the current party elite (and George Will) are attacking Trump today. 

I see it differently than Will. I see it as the beginning of the end of the Republican Party, the RNC, as we know it. I see it as the beginning of a huge housecleaning that needs to be done in the House, the Senate, and the RNC. And Trump, Ted Cruz, or Dr. Ben Carson are poised to do just that.

Will is in total denial if he believes what he is saying, that there even is a conservative party called Republican. The way I see it, if Trump wins, it could mean the beginning of the conservative party.

Happy 240th Birthday United States Marines

On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that “two Battalions of Marines be raised” for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps. Serving on land and at sea, these first Marines distinguished themselves in a number of important operations, including their first amphibious raid into the Bahamas in March 1776, under the command of Captain (later Major) Samuel Nicholas.

In a related matter, is the statement President Obama made at a Ramadan dinner at The White House where he praised Muslim’s attending of Islam’s contributions to “the American way of life.”

I know of only ONE thing that Muslim’s are responsible for that contributed to “the American way of life.” The founding of the Marines in November 1775 during the times of the Second Continental Congress. Before George Washington became our first President. Their contribution was their pirating merchant ships, stealing the cargo and killing the crews in the Mediterranean Sea. As the Marine anthem goes “From the Halls of Montezuma To the Shores of Tripoli…” They were formed to protect shipping from pirates at first. Then grew into a force that can protect our country. That’s what I see as Muslim’s only contribution to America and our way of life. Your mileage may vary.

Happy Birthday Marines Corps. God Bless you and your families for your service and sacrifices.

House Votes To Protect Life, But Democrats Don’t

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved H.R.3504, The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

In short, it does two things. It protects life. And it grants the newborn all the rights and protections under the law that any other newborn has under the law.

The fact that nearly every democrat in the House voted against life, is evidence how much abortion is the Holy Sacrament of the Democrat Party. They voted in lock-step with President Obama and the First Lady who believe infanticide is just fine. A woman’s right.

President Carter On President Obama

President Carter gets, and takes, the opportunity to fall to the position of second worst President in our nation’s history.

In describing Obama’s successes or shortcomings of American foreign policy, Carter says . . .

I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than we did when he took over.

Remembering The Time, And Sacrifice

Remembering those who fought for, and died for, their country on Memorial Day Holiday.

The country was never more united in the effort. In music, and in Hollywood.

In movie theaters . . .

Buying War Bonds was buying a share of freedom. I can’t imagine what they would be called today.

Suicide By Train?

Today’s incident occurred on the tracks beside Hwy 97A,  just south of Quintet road, Cantonment, FL. There are two sheets covering the tracks, about 15 feet from each other.

Today makes the second pedestrian death by train in three days. The victim today has yet to be identified except that it is a male.

UPDATE 4/5/2015: Local news sources have not reported that the victim had been identified. This “comment” on North Escambia’s website tells all we need to know and, what to do.

From the father of the victim . . .

the young mans dad on March 31st, 2015 11:27 pm

I am the father of this young man. This is a horrible thing to have happened for everyone involved. My request is that prayers go out to his 5 brothers and 1 sister that is enduring a horrific period of time in their lives. I also request that we keep the Engineer in our prayers.This particular incident involved more then my son. The engineer was fairly young. He did everything correctly and everything he could have to possibly avoid such a horrid ending. I pray for you as well I know your life has been affected greatly with this incident.I hope you see this. I personally want you to know your in our thoughts as well.

On A Jewish Holiday

After the mid-term elections, Barack Hussein Obama, not feeling well and concerned about his mortality, goes to consult a psychic about the date of his death.

Closing her eyes and silently reaching into the realm of the future, she finds the answer: “You will die on a Jewish holiday.”

“Which one?” Obama asks nervously.

“It doesn’t matter,” replied the psychic. “Whenever you die, it’ll be a Jewish holiday.”

What a memory!

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is
not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs  to look for him.

She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of
coffee in front of him.

He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip
of his coffee.

‘What’s the matter, dear?’ she whispers as she
steps into the room. ‘Why are you down here at
this time of night?’

The husband looks up from his coffee, ‘It’s the 20th
Anniversary of the day we met.’

She can’t believe he has remembered and starts to tear
up.

The husband continues, ‘Do you remember 20 years ago
when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only
16,’ he says solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears.

‘Yes, I do,’ she replies.

The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily.

‘Do you remember when your father caught us in the back
seat of my car?’

‘Yes, I remember,’ said the wife, lowering herself
into the chair beside him.

The husband continued. ‘Do you remember when he
shoved the shotgun in my face and said, “Either you
marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20
years?’

‘I remember that, too,’ she replied softly.

He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, ‘I would
have gotten out today.’
