Confused Yet?

Shared Sacrifice.

President Obama calls for shared sacrifice- -but when republicans and governors try to reduce cost by cutting or changing the so called entitlements and pensions Democrats oppose the proposals and call for tax increases. I guess they think “shared sacrifice” means the tax payers need to sacrifice.

Debit Limit.

Speaker Boehner calls for reduced spending before raising the debt limit - - The Republican leadership has been saying that they will only increase the debt limit if Democrats agree to spending cuts. How does that make any sense?

If the debt limit is not increased the Democrats will have to cut spending. If they agree to spending cuts why do they need an increase in the debt limit?

What’s his name says that if the limit isn’t increased we will default. If so how does he think we will be able to pay the debt if he can borrow more?

Since it his responsibility to pay the debt why doesn’t Congress call him before them and ask him to explain why he won’t pay it since we have enough money to service the debt at this time.?

Religious Freedom.

Atheists and the ACLU sue in court about prayer and God in the public. Claiming Christians cannot force their views on everyone quoting the first amendment as proof “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” but leave out the second part of that sentence “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech”,

- - But they seem to think the Constitution gives them the right to force their views on the rest of us and the ability to limit our freedom of speech.

Government Pay.

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense

Entitlement programs.

If we have to raise the debt ceiling to fund the so called entitlement programs why is this president and administration sending money to Haiti, Chile, Pakistan, Libya, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece. Why isn’t the government spending this money on Americans?

Big Oil responsible for price increase - So says President Obama.

Obama went to Brazil in March and offered to help that country expand its oil reserves.

“And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers,” Obama said.

BUT - - -

So why did the Obama Administration cut these?

The withdrawal of 61 oil and gas leases in Montana as part of a settlement over climate change.

Withdrawal of 24,000 acres in Wyoming from oil and gas leases.

Withdrawal of 77 oil and gas leases in Utah.

Delayed oil shale research and development.

Prohibition on energy production on three million acres of public lands.

The administration also limited 30 million acres of public land with solar potential, to development within only 670,000 acres.

A de facto moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico on the heels of the Deepwater Horizon spill was meant to protect the ocean environment, but industry officials say it has decimated the region.

Founders Quote on Democracies And Republics

"In Europe, charters of liberty have been granted by power. America has set the example … of charters of power granted by liberty. This revolution in the practice of the world, may, with an honest praise, be pronounced the most triumphant epoch of its history, and the most consoling presage of its happiness." --James Madison, National Gazette Essay, 1792


"What was the primary and principal object in the institution of government? Was it -- I speak of the primary and principal object -- was it to acquire new rights by a human establishment? Or was it, by human establishment, to acquire new security for the possession or the recovery of those rights, to the enjoyment or acquisition of which we were previously entitled by the immediate gift, or by the unerring law, of our all-wise and all-beneficent Creator? The latter, I presume, was the case…" --James Wilson, 1790


"If we resort for a criterion to the different principles on which different forms of government are established, we may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior." --James Madison, Federalist No. 39


"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." --Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 1779


"[D]emocracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths." --James Madison, Federalist No. 10, 1787


"Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them." --Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833


I don't know who wrote this but I agree.

I Am the Democratic, Republican Liberal-Progressive's Worst Nightmare.

I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, American Veteran, Gun Owning Biker.

I am a Master leather worker. I work hard and long hours with my hands to earn a living.

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others.

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and drive American-made cars, and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don't work!

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English.

I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are Malcolm Forbes, Bill Gates, John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G. Davidson, who makes the awesome Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, nor was I a slave. I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you!

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

This is AMERICA ...We like it the way it is and more so the way it was stop trying to change it to look like Russia or China , or some other socialist country!

If you were born here and don't like it... you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the White House, the seat of our biggest problems.

I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution.

Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are, but not just because you happen to ride a bike.

And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license. I think it's good.... And I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money..

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause.... Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family!

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents....

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA!

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

We want our country back!

My Country.....

I hope this offends all illegal aliens and America haters.

My great, great, great, great grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in the Revolution & the War of 1812.

My great, great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Mexican American War.

My great, great grandfather watched as his friends & brothers died in the Civil War.

My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Spanish-American War.

My grandfather watched as his friends died in WW I.

My father watched as his friends died in WW II.

I watched as my friends died in Vietnam, Panama & Desert Storm.

My son watched & bled as his friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq.

None of them died for the Mexican Flag. Everyone died for the American flag.

Texas high school students raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole, other students took it down. Guess who was expelled...the students who took it down.

California high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo, because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.

Enough is enough!!

This message needs to be viewed by every American; and every American needs to stand up for America.

We've bent over to appease the America-haters long enough. I'm taking a stand.

I'm standing up because the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the American flag.

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.

AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS!

Let me make this clear! THIS IS MY COUNTRY!

This statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration!

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

1. Get a sponsor!

2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!

3. Live by OUR rules!

4. Get a job!

5. Pay YOUR Taxes!

6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for it!

7. NOW find a place to lay your head!

If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

We've gone so far the other way . . . bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

Only AMERICANS seems to care when American Citizens are being offended!

WAKE UP America!! !

Made in the U S A & DAMN PROUD OF IT!!!!!

I do beleive the White House is using unions and Acorn to threaten America.

Over the past 2 years I have written and spoke about President Obama wanting to form a civilian army as well trained and equipped (Armed?) as our military when he was elected.

When he spoke of a civilian army I immediately thought of A.C.O.R.N.. He went so far as to tell a gathering of A.C.O.R.N.
members that he was one of them and they had the Whitehouse now.

When he was forcing the takeover of G.M., threatening share holders and bankers, protesters mysteriously showed up at their private homes by the bus load. More recently in Wisconsin bus loads of protesters (Acorn and Union.) showed up at Republican representatives homes.

When asked about the Wisconsin governor’s bill he immediately took the side of the unions claiming the Governor was “union busting”. During his Governors meeting this week he claims he told the Governors that they shouldn’t disparage or label public service unions. He totally ignored the fact that it has never happened and the disparaging and name calling was being done by the unions.

Now we find out his political committee and the DNC is organizing unions to march on state capitals and that union leaders are going into the White House daily and that the unions are picketing state capitals in an attempt to threaten the legislators before hand.

Looks like he has both. Both before and after the election we have numerous stories of union and A.C.O.R.N. members (thugs) attacking and threatening people the white house dislike. His Justice dept. has refused to prosecute members of the new panther party, and police officers have refused to help Tea Party members under attacked by those thugs. The Wisconsin State Troopers have refused to find the missisng democrat rep.'s and also refused to clear the capital as ordered by Governor Walker.

Homeland security has released a report to all law enforcement departments that declares all veterans and states’ rights advocates as potential terrorist.

Over 30 years ago the government sent us to Vietnam to defend other people’s rights. Even now we have brothers in the Middle East fighting and some paying the extreme sacrifice. Do they think we won't defend our own rights?

How long will he wait until he pulls a Gadhafi and offers arms to these thugs calling them his army, and are you ready for that eventually.

 AT some point law enforcement officers and military personnel will have to make a choice between obeying their oath to protect and defend the constitution and enforcing unconstitutional orders issued by this President.

As a veteran I know how I will stand. Do you?

Tonight I received an email from one of my Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Brothers and I thought it worth posting on this blog.

When a Veteran leaves the 'job' and retires to a better life, many are jealous, some are pleased, and others, who may have already retired, wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because we already know.


1. We know, for example, that after a lifetime of camaraderie that few experience, it will remain as a longing for those past times.

2. We know in the Military life there is a fellowship which lasts long after the uniforms are hung up in the back of the closet.

But..... Once you have put on the uniform of war you can never take it off.

3. We know even if he throws them away, they will be on him with every step and breath that remains in his life. We also know how the very bearing of the man speaks of what he was and in his heart still is.

These are the burdens of the job. You will still look at people suspiciously, still see what others do not see or choose to ignore and always will look at the rest of the Military world with a respect for what they do; only grown in a lifetime of knowing.

Never think for one moment you are escaping from that life. You are only escaping the 'job' and merely being allowed to leave 'active' duty.
So what I wish for you is that whenever you ease into retirement, in your heart you never forget for one moment that you are still a member of the greatest fraternity the world has ever known.

NOW... Civilian Friends vs. Veteran Friends Comparisons:

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Get upset if you're too busy to talk to them for a week.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Are glad to see you after years, and will happily carry on the same conversation you were having the last time you met.

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Have cried with you.


CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.


CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.


CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Will stand by you no matter what the crowd does.


CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Are for a while.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Are for life.


CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have shared a few experiences...

VETERAN FRIENDS: Have shared a lifetime of experiences no citizen could ever dream of...


CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you've had enough.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say, 'You better drink the rest of that before you spill it!' Then carry you home safely and put you to bed...


A veteran - whether active duty, retired, served one hitch, or reserve is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The people of the United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life'.

From one Veteran to another, it's an honor to be in your company. Thank you for your service to our country and defending the freedoms we enjoy.

Agent Orange -The gift that keeps on giving.

Haven't written anything since September but I'll try to do better now. Starting early last year I began to have problems walking. Heavy cramps in both legs would cause me to fall and actually grunt from the pain. :) Having been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I figured that was the cause but I went out to the VA in Orlando any to get it checked out. Good think I did as my Aorta and major veins in both legs were clogged and blood was only getting through by collateral veins.

The doc was real straight with me. Seems that both diabetes and ischemic heart heard disease are caused by exposure to Agent Orange. So I could either wait for my legs to turn purple from lack of blood and have them amputated or I could get an Aortic Femoral by pass but it would be iffy because of my heart condition. The first thing that crossed my mind was how ironic it would be to die from something I was exposed to over 40 years ago when I had survived that war. Well, maybe a couple of zigs when I should have zagged. But they were not serious and I was back in the fun in no time.

Back to the story. I went in at Tampa VA on September 13. I woke up 8 days later. The operation was a success but the patient wouldn't wake up. Seems I wouldn't breathe when they tried to remove my oxygen. Soooo my wife, son and daughter were called to the hospital to say good bye in case I wouldn't breath when the removed me from the respirator for good. I later learned my 16 yr. old daughter had stood by my bed taping my forehead repeating breath Daddy breath with every tap. But the story has a happy ending. Within minutes after being taken off the respirator I began to breathe on my own.

Just like any other good old southern boy I must have figured why do something yourself when you can get a machine to do it for you.

They let me go home on September 27th with 3 months of R&R. By the way I had lost 20 lbs in the hospital but the R&R put 25 back on me.

I had minimal exposure so you guys who were doused with it need to get checked out for both. During the week I recuperated in the hospital I learned how lucky I was to have been unconscious the first week after the operation. Other guys were brought into the room straight from their operations. They had drain tubes up thru their nose, were restricted in movement because of monitors, hoses and cords plus they only got ice to suck on. They were miserable and a couple was close to breaking. Did I tell you that those who smoked were the most miserable? I was lucky that I got over my cravings while I was under.

I want to thank my family and friends for the prayers because they helped. Also my brothers and sisters at Rolling Thunder florida Chapter 8.
I would also like to thank my friends over at the Florida Veterans net for linking my blog. Please visit them at Florida Veteran's Network (FL Vet-Net).
