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…

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.

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…
