“Taps” – For the Fallen this Memorial Day

Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep,
peaceful sleep,
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.

Fades the light;
And afar
Goeth day,
And the stars
Shineth bright,
Fare thee well;
Day has gone,
Night is on.

Thanks and praise,
For our days,
‘Neath the sun,
Neath the stars,
‘Neath the sky,
As we go,
This we know,
God is nigh.

Liar, Liar – Pants on fire

I’ve said it before:
Republican, Democrat or Independent… Black, White or Purple, …… Christian, Jewish or Muslim…. Regardless – A Liar is a Liar!

At every turn, the American people are being lied to by their elected representatives. They lie to GET in office, they lie to STAY in office and they continue to lie, even once they’re OUT of office (Slick Willy).

In most cases, these lies are obvious ones, to the point that a simple fact-check will open the door. We have wrongly assumed the press would do this “investigating” in the past. Boy, were we gullible!

What really concerns me at this point is that we can’t CHECK Obama’s past because so much of it has been hidden from American Citizens. If nothing else, I’m a realist. He’s from Illinois, he’s a democrat, he has a harvard degree, he has already broken almost every one of his campaign promises (not that I personally believe any of them), he’s skirted issues, delayed explanations, bowed to every other country on the planet, he’s denounced our way of life and twisted our constitution to near non-recognition – All in 18 months.

Fellow Americans, please, vet your representatives yourself, at EVERY level. Read their official bios, read their voting records, read their books (use the library, don’t line their pockets), Ask QUESTIONS of the officials and of the media.

We are, in my opinion, already in a civil-war of sorts – Let us pray this one is fought, not with guns and weapons of destruction, but rather with knowledge and our VOTES. We, the American voters, are the sharp-shooters of this conflict – We must ensure our ammo is true and our eye focused.

My sister sent me this great forwarded email… I had to share it with you all …..

Barack H. Obama, during his Cairo speech said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

An American Citizen’s response:

Dear Mr. Obama,

Were there Muslims in America when the Pilgrims first landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving Day?  Sorry again, Those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence?
Bill of Rights?

Didn’t think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England?  NO
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America?  No, they did not.  In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.  Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.”  Says a lot of what the Muslims world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama.

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?  Not PRESENT.
There are no pictures or media accounts of Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era?  Again – Not PRESENT.  In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture.  So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the “hajib” or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.  Yep, the Muslims are for women’s rights, aren’t they?

Where were the Muslims during World War II?  They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.  The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were the Muslims on September 11, 2001?  If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil,  They were rejoicing in the Middle East.  No on can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, FOX News, MSNBC and other cable news networds that day.    Strangely, …  the very ‘moderate’ Muslims who’s (rear ends) you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.  To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.  They were Muslim.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soliders at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soliders returning from battle in Iraq andAfganistan.

And that, Mr. Obama, is the ‘rich heritage’ Muslims have here in America.

Bob Bennett.. The first of many….

Bob Bennett may be the first Scalp of the Democratic Party!  It seems he may not win his (incumbent) party’s nomination for the upcoming election.  In interviews he feels, once the convention starts… He may be able to “convince” them.  Well, I think he’s about to learn that politics has changed……..

Bob… Let me try to explain something here, … The “one-on-one” time and the “let me explain it clearly” crap isn’t going to flush anymore. See, for too many years now we’ve listened to your spin, … Frankly, its made us sick to our stomachs… So- Instead, we – the American Voters – will be taking the time to read your voting history, pull up bios and news articles on our own. The MSM is a less effective tool now, – their bias is unquestionable. Sooo.. Now that the sleeping giant has awakened, we’ll be making up our own minds, we’ll be voting from our hearts and not because of a flashy logo, or a ‘pat-excuse’, well scripted as it may be….
I’m sure, as we bid you farewell, that you and your family will continue to receive a generous retirement package, unlimited benefits and, no doubt, a cushy little czar job – if you play your cards right….

Illegals

Certainly, the illegal immigration issue is one that must be tackled. In my opinion, it is by-far the most pressing issue of the day. Amnesty is not the answer, however. To back away from law, to forsake those words – debated, voted upon and enacted- are we not sending a toxic message to the world? Are we not expressing contempt for our own process? Are we not saying that anyone, anytime – at their whim – can simply walk onto our soil and DEMAND the right’s of a citizen? Are we not, thereby, stealing from citizens to sustain a NONcitizen’s every need, and many of their ‘wants’?

I too, remember how much better our home-life was in the 60’s (rural Virginia)… I remember the pride I felt while learning American History. I felt the deep love of country that pride produced. But sadly, that pride has been usurped, stolen from our children. American Pride has been diluted by the flags of many nations. Our “progressive” friends, in all their bleeding-heart glory, have taken from my children something I value greatly!

I grew up believeing I was special… because I was an AMERICAN. I was special because of the words, deeds and actions of our founding fathers. That they believed soooo strongly in freedom for themselves and their children’s children… That they fought and died to save us from future tyranny.

I remember studying about the Statue of Liberty, about the wonderful immigrants that flocked to our great land, searching for individual freedom. They had to work to learn our laws, our language, and our fundamental beliefs. For this effort, they not only gained a new homeland, but they too, felt PRIDE… Anxious to work, grow and profit as an American. They too, were exceptional!

Illegal immigration is an entirely different matter. There’s been no petition, no respect – for our laws, our history, or our citizens. They’ve not had to consider the responsibilities of citizenship.  They don’t understand the difference in “pursuit of happiness” and “happiness” itself….

Benjamin Franklin once said, “The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness.  You have to catch it yourself.”

Far too many, both citizens and non-citizens- need to understand the difference.
