Folks your state is responsible to you, not your state is responsible to the federal government with it’s citizenry(you) as a secondary notion. Hence the reason there are state constitutions. If you are a parent, you better pay attention and write letters and emails. If you are a grandparent, you better pay attention and write letters and emails before your children and your grandchildren are unable to write you back…
This is a very well written and eye opening article–j
There isn’t a day goes by i don’t wish to be back in the heat, wearing kit, and praying someone would give us a reason, or something would explode, somewhere, anywhere. I miss combat and combat zones i miss the freedom and the clear sense of purpose. As I check myself weekly back into why i don’t go anymore, it helps to know there are others who feel the same, and maybe we need a support group, or a chatroom or our own space in the VFW? I miss it and i miss those friends, but today, reading about someone else and their desire to return, or having made it back, is enough.–j
Take time from your Sunday to read how assumptions and sacred cows allowed the common sense of the average person to intervene.
I have never asked for a “big-brother” world, to each their own, that’s a good rule, for all to follow. But if it’s wrong, it’s wrong and we owe others our voice when they haven’t one of their own.
Your mind knows when some thing is off, take a time to learn how to listen to yourself and pay attention, these poor “boys” almost lost all of nothing, AND their lives because people assumed things were good, even though they mention noticing things “had changed” over the years.
The golden rule, just use the golden rule to help you make the tough decision to stand up, life isn’t that hard.
Is this an expose of America or the cultures represented? I don’t care! If you see something like this and take the chance to intervene the possibility exists that you save someone from an embarrassing and potentially painful life event as well as you may run the risk of being embarrassed for being caught on film doing the right thing or you may also run the risk of someone trying to throw you a beating; let them! If you are on the side of right, you have done your part. If someone sees the humanity in you and through your actions they may become empowered to do the same, maybe for you or someone else one day. If you want a better world for yourselves and your family YOU have to build it, politicians and pop stars could care less about your needs, safety and happiness.–j
and i don’t mean the banned commercial, i mean the fact it was banned when the protection of one’s self, possessions and family are our creator given rights, not to be infringed by man. Our Constitution and the construction of this country were built on the fact that as British citizens we had no rights not explicitly given by the state. America your time has come fight this fight as you see fit, preferably at the voting booth, and while you ask yourselves who Colion Noir is, make sure you have a higher degree than his law degree…
Similar to AL Gore and his carbon credits, when he himself has such a huge carbon footprint, those who have money seem to believe that they know what is best for everyone else, yet wish to make no true changes of themselves or their lifestyles. People around the world wake up!!! Realize you are ants and the grasshoppers are in control, and that the fact is, in the end, there are more ants that survive the winter than grasshoppers.
Disclaimer, I hunt, I believe in the right to keep and bear arms, I believe in the right to be free of unwarranted search and seizure, my home is my castle, collecting rainwater for my garden and orchard isn’t against the law, it is saving for a later day.
I also believe if you hurt a child, a woman, or a country of people who you intentionally kept uneducated for monetary and aristocratic reasons, that you should be hurt and healed multiple times until the scales are balanced. I also believe that if you are a hypocrite I no longer have to listen to you and that any words you proffer as advice, leadership, or caring from your last hypocritical point forward, are all lies and I don’t care what comes out of your sub-nasal blow-hole, because I quit listening one lie back. That said I also believe we need the Erin Brockovich of the world, that the small man needs someone to keep out big industry, mom-and-pop shops are the life blood of America, and that everyone can use a hand up from time to time, and that growing your own food should be a standard of practice, not “those weird hippies at the end of the street”.
But when the liberal media and liberal actors tell us that shelters are bad, and eating animals are bad, and Sarah McLachlan guilt’s us into sending money in every time we hear her songs on the radio, and that it all might be a lie; I’m lost. You mind yours, I’ll mind mine, but don’t use sad images and guilt to get Legend and MonkeyHead to talk me into liberating multiple dogs from the local shelter, because “we have a big yard”.
i try not to be too political, but really i bust my butt to teach my children and my Sailors how to be personally accountable and then our government makes promises, overextends the peoples treasury, and has yet to take personal responsibility for any missteps
E. The use of diminishing entitlement programs as bait to ensure the uninformed blindly cast their vote.
Fix it now, stand in front of Wal-mart (Target doesn’t like it when you stand in front of them) have people sign the petition, and recall your Senators and Congressman, Colorado did it over the loss of one Company, 1 civil right infringement, and the loss of 1750 jobs, what did the shut down cost us as a people?
