When God Closes a Door He Opens a Window

Most of us have heard this saying at some point in our lives. Many have lived it and others go through life depending on it to be fact and sometimes never have to stand on that faith.

I am living this today. I am standing on the faith that God will see us through our troubles and continue to bless us with the amazing grace He has shown all the prior days of our lives. I guess I'll explain what has happened, what is happening and the outcome, as far as we know it now.

I have never been one to share my personal strife or trials online or in person unless the one with whom I am sharing is a very close family member, IE: Mother, sister, wife. That being said, I am changing my policy because of the support we have received for our mission with the 9-12 Project Truck. The story goes as follows.

On the 17th of October, on our way from Salt Lake City UT to Atlanta GA I was driving through the Smokey Mountains in TN between Chattanooga and Nashville. Mont eagle is the town at the top of the mountain.
View Larger Map

As you descend the mountain headed southeast, the scenery is unbelievable at all times of year but this morning seemed especially gorgeous. It was mid October, the leaves were changing, the sun was just cresting the mountain tops to the East, and it was cold enough that there was a heavy frost on most surfaces. The air was brisk but refreshingly clean with the windows of the truck cracked just enough to feel the cool breeze.

I had the radio on and had, just prior to topping the mountain, been listening to Cowboy Church on XM 13 (Willies Place), now renamed Cowboy Camp Meeting I believe. By the time I started down the hill on the south east side, Bill Mack's Sunday Social had started on that same channel. I was looking out the window in awe of the beauty that morning. The sun was heating up just enough to start to warm the roofs of the few buildings you can see off to the south east. Many of the leaves had already begun to fall off the trees and that made the view of those buildings somewhat better though still a bit obscure. As the sun was warming the roofs the frost had started to melt and a fog or steam from that was rising off the roof of an old, somewhat dilapidated, small metal shed and the song below came on the radio behind Bill Mack's booming, easily recognizable voice. The song is Kris Kristofferson's "Why Me".

I'm not sure how any one man can be so blessed but in that moment, and actually in retrospect all moments, I feel I was and am the most blessed man on earth. Since I started driving I had always wanted to be in the Smokey Mountains at this time of year and under these conditions because I had always heard about the beauty that abounds. Words can do it NO justice. Even pictures cannot capture all the many facets of nature's beauty and God's gracious gifts. I could go on about this five minutes for a lifetime...but I'll not.

We continued down the road and near Atlanta I noticed an SUV riding beside me and reading the side of the truck. The road there, reading, taking pictures and waiving for several miles, probably 10 miles or more in all reality. Finally I decided, in the interest of safety and traffic flow, to pull off the road and talk to the people and let them take some good pictures and learn about the 9-12 Project. I pulled off on an off ramp, exited the truck and gave them some reading materials. They signed the truck and allowed me to take a picture of them and their family. This was a very kind Christian family that was eager to learn about the mission.

Following a brief exchange we all moved on and Tina and I continued on to our Atlanta terminal for a Sunday afternoon delivery.

After arriving at the Atlanta terminal we were asked to run a load into Miami that evening for Monday morning. The load was to be ready at 2100. We received a call at about 1600 that there was an earlier Miami load and asked if we could pull it instead of the later one. We complied and off to Miami we headed.

Just south of Macon, at mile post 133, I pulled off the road due to shoulder, jaw and neck pain, and blurred vision. Any guesses? That's right, I was having a heart attack. Tina called 911 and I was picked up by an ambulance and transported to Medical Center of Central Georgia and into the emergency room. After some tests and preparatory procedures they rushed me to the Heart catheter unit and placed a stent in one of the coronary arteries. The artery was 100% blocked by a clot that had broken loose from another location and moved to the heart causing a blockage.

On the night of the 17th of October, after all was said and done, the attending physician informed Tina and me that I had suffered a significant Heart attack but that most of the damage had seemingly been averted with prompt action by the first responders and my quick recognition of a problem, not to mention the amazing Emergency room team and the team in the heart catheter lab.

I stayed in the hospital until the 22nd and was released to go home. Tina drove and we arrived there late Friday evening. Since that time, the news has gotten somewhat worse.

After much testing and many doctors visits, it has been determined that I have suffered a massive heart attack with substantial heart damage. The damage that I have encountered is bad enough that the F.M.C.S.A. (page 94/95)will not allow my re-certification as a commercial driver. Further, it appears at this point that I will need an I.C.D. device implanted to regulate when necessary and shock when necessary, my heart function.

Moving forward:
Unfortunately, as mentioned above, the F.M.C.S.A. will not allow me to be re-certified as a commercial driver with the condition of my heart nor will they permit driving with an icd.

I find it heartbreaking that we will have to sell the 9-12 Project Truck. Many of you know our passion for the 9-12 Project and for the mission at hand of helping to wake up and educate the public on the demise of liberty as granted by God to our country.

That being said, when God closes a door He opens a window. I am faithful in the belief that God will provide the path that we are to follow and will lead us down that very path through fervent prayer and his answers thereof.

Finally, though the 9-12 Truck as you have grown to know it will no longer be on the road, at least not with the same vigor as before we will, in whatever endeavor we partake, be promoting, advertising and continue to espouse the Principles and values of the 9-12 Project, and we will be as loud and boisterous about it, just like before.

I will still, in the future be posting at Stop the Destruction of America about current events and my disgust for our out of control government, local, county, state, and national entities all. Please follow along and find out, when I do, about our next venture.

In closing...May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

God Bless you all.

An Unwanted, Forced Sabbatical of at Least Two Months

While I won't go into full detail, I have been forced, for health reasons, to take a minimum of two months off.

It has come to my attention...again, through an eye opening event, that we cannot and must not continue to treat our God given temples(bodies) like a mere clunker vehicle with which to muddle through life and take us from point to point. We must treat it as a precious piece of equipment, supplied for our use, and it must be taken care of like it is your only worry in life.

I will be posting here from time to time in case you care to continue reading but there will be little news on the issue of the truck travels. I am going to try to arrange with the company to whom we are leased, for me to make the truck available, as well as myself, for appearances at venues and gatherings where we might be invited. If you have a gathering which you would like the 9/12 Truck, myself and or both to attend, please let me know here or at my twitter or Facebook page and I will do what I can to see to it that we are there.

Unfortunately these appearances can no longer go uncompensated. It does cost a lot of money to run the truck up and down the highways but our fees will be as reasonable as can be expected with this administrations energy policies driving up fuel prices and the cost of living.

I hope you will all continue to check back often to see when the 9/12 Truck will be up and running again. Again, thanks for all your continued support. It is truly appreciated.

In the mean time...Here is a novel item for the coming election year.

A useful, bipartisan doll to give you something to throw while watching the news and listening to the politicians lie with every motion of their lips.

A Tea Party Stop for the 9/12 Truck

While we were on vacation last month with friends and family, my sister asked if we could attend a tea Party event that she was hosting in Collinsville IL on the 25th of September. I suspected it was going to be tough to get the time off after just having 3 weeks the month before but we made the request anyway.

The company to whom we are leased and specifically Todd Haerr not only authorized the time off but made a special effort to help us arrive there in time to get the truck ready for the event. Thanks Todd.

We got to the St Louis area on Friday morning, we went to my mother's place south east about 50 miles and spent Friday working on and cleaning the truck to get it ready. I also had a great visit with my mother as Tina did with her family.

Early Saturday morning we got up and headed back north to Collinsville to the American Legion Hall. What a great group of Veterans there is at that hall. The memorial out front of this hall is amazing. I neglected to get pictures but it was and is one of the nicest I have seen.

The event started at about 1400 with some young ladies called the Gateway Girls singing and dancing for the crowd. I actually compiled the following video from many clips shot on that day. They didn't just stand and sing for 12 minutes or so, they would sing, then a speaker would babble on about something and they would sing some more. Here is the video of their songs on that day.


After the star Spangled Banner was performed by these amazing young ladies Mike Ortiz, a Tea Party Organizer and 9/12 organizer and conservative blogger from Danville Il, spoke to the crowd about the NRA's recent capitulation on the 1st amendment and then He spoke about what is known as "The National Popular Vote" Mike's speech is below in it's entirety.

We had another speaker who spoke about constitutional law but his was more of a hawk for his personal website than a speech about the constitutionality of what is going on in America so I chose not to include it here, nor will I mention his name or website. I believe he is a hindrance to the conservative movement and certainly to constitutional law. I just don't believe He knows more about the constitution than David Barton of WallBuilders does but he certainly made some disparaging remarks about Mr. Barton who wasn't there to defend himself. It is certainly easy to attack what someone says or their person when they aren't there to defend themselves. Just another shameless, slimy attorney looking to make a name for himself. I will not be a party to furthering his cause, which seems to be Himself.

After my sister spoke for a few more minutes it was my turn. I was asked to speak about activism and activism with honor. My speech, in it's 3 part, 20 minute, entirety follows.

After the singing and dancing, the speaking and babbling was all said and done we mingled and had some great visitation and fellowship. I so love being around folks of like mind and those who are working towards the same goal... that being, Stopping the Destruction of America.

Here are a few pictures of some of the folks who attended and some of those who signed the 9/12 Truck. The first two here are family members of Tina's. The lady in the red top is an avid reader of my pointless ramblings, she is Tina's Aunt Marlene. The second lady here, in the peach colored top, a life long Democrat, is one of Tina's cousins, Janet.

Speaking of attorney's, here is Carment Durso of Durso Law Offices in Belleville IL. Another of St Claire Counties finest and most loyal Dems at a Tea Party. Carmen is a very good friend of mine and my mother's employer. He has been very good to my mother so what could I possibly say that might be bad about a guy like that...Democrat attorney or not.

Below are pictures of Josh, a brother to the Gateway Girl with whom he is pictured. These are some amazing kids. Their parents have obviously spent numerous hours teaching them right from wrong, good from bad, and that hard work will always conquer an apathetic, lethargic attitude.

Finally, a few pictures of the crowd.

Just another quick note here about a lady we met at this rally. her name is Marcia Fish and she is director of an organization called Mission of Moms. This is an amazing organization driven by donations. If you can see your way to helping this organization, Marcia and especially the troops in theater would be most appreciative.

Burning the Quran, Building the Mosque, Is there a Difference?

Why in the world would the President of the United states weigh in on the burning of the Quran in Florida by this limelight seeking pastor, Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville FL.

This dirt bag lying miscreant that is our President has done everything but tell The Imam in the Cordoba House controversy that he agrees with what he is doing. All he had to say about that idea was that they have the constitutional right to build the Mosque. He didn't ask the Imam not to build the mosque, he didn't say it was a bad or ill conceived idea, he didn't say anything but that Rauf has the constitutional right to build.

Then, along comes an American, Terry Jones, and no matter how whacked this guy may seem or be, I believe he too has the constitutional right to Burn this book...Not that he should but he does have the right. The President now comes out against this idea, against this pastor and says he should stand down. He didn't say that the pastor has the constitutional right to burn the quran, he simply said it was a bad idea.

Really!!!! Why is it a bad idea for the pastor to to burn the quran in defiance of the Muslim religion being shoved down our throats but the Imam Rauf has the constitutional right to forge ahead with his Cordoba House project, no matter how incendiary?

Well, in my humble, usually less than popular opinion, the President knows that Christians aren't going to cut off heads to stop the Cordoba project and that the hate filled, religiously misguided, intolerant Muslims will do just that to stop or to protest the burning the Quran.

Maybe it's time that Christians stand up and be counted. Maybe it's time that we let these intolerant people of a hateful religious cult that we are tired of them coming here and telling us that WE are the intolerant group. Is it really intolerant to say you disagree or more so to show your disagreement by killing the opposition?

I don't agree with Pastor Terry Jones intention of burning the quran or any other religious symbol of any group for that matter, but I do absolutely believe that we as Christians had better stand up and be heard, regardless of the backlash. The backlash at the second coming of Christ will be far worse for not standing for Christ than being murdered by a group of hateful cultists for burning a book.

Finally, I definitely believe that if the President is going to ask the Pastor Terry Jones to stand down on the burning of the quran, I believe that he should also ask the Imam Rauf to stand down on the building of the Cordoba House as a Temple of Conquer of the Trade Towers. And make no mistake, that is the whole meaning of the Cordoba House Project.

There is just no consistency in this administration. Well, that isn't exactly true. The consistency is in the idea that the administration must do anything they can to make the United States and her Judea Christian populous look weak or intolerant or even abusive and in making all others feel or look like the down trodden or abused.

Wake up Mr President, love America or get the hell out, and that goes for everybody.

Our Vacation was Great

Wow, what a vacation. Busy, busy, busy but very rewarding. We spent the first week, from the 14th to the 19th or so, catching up on things at home. Collecting the mail, making emergency well repairs, again, and finding someone to mow the unkept mess that we call a lawn.

The second week, at least the first part of the week was spent getting ready for the "Restoring Honor" rally in D.C.. Words are inadequate to make known the true impact of this event. The estimates as seen in the Lame stream media of 87000 to 300,000 are absolutely ludicrous.

Though I have no experience or hidden abilities to count or estimate a crowd size, I can tell you that I think even I can tell the difference between 87000 "normal roamers" on the mall and what is to be believed as well over 600,000 attendees standing around enjoying an onstage event. Never the less, here are some pictures so that you can decide for yourself.

While we were away from home for the rally, we stayed at a lodge type resort in Gordonsville VA, about 90 miles or so south of D.C.. This lodge was amazing. We had with us my sister, her husband and a long time friend and his wife. We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath log cabin with a hide-a-bed couch at the resort which was called "Shenandoah Crossing". Man, what a beautiful, well kept, scenic, even all inclusive resort.

The top picture is of one of the three pool areas. Obviously, this is one of the outside area, but there also 2 others and they have indoor pool areas as well.

The next photo is the view from our living room area at or near sunset. We had a screened in deck with a barbecue, a full kitchen, all the amenities for which you could ask. The third picture down is a picture of the outside of the cabin we rented. Honestly, this place was phenomenal. We could not have asked for a better place to stay, or for better company with which to spend our week of solitude. An entire week of no truck talk, very little political talk, no work, no worries other than where to go, what to eat, who's historical home site to visit, and where to spend next years time off.

We met some great people in and around Gordonsville VA and Charlottesville VA area while we were there visiting Thomas Jefferson's palatial estate and James Monroe's place as well. It seemed that everywhere we went, we met and spoke to several people that were going to attend the "Restoring Honor" rally in D.C.. Even though we were at least 90 miles from D.C., there was no shortage of God fearing, Bible toting, America loving Patriots ready for an amazing day of "Restoring Honor".

We met Charles F Knight and his wife of Cedar Log Systems who came all the way from Colorado to be at the rally. Again, even 90miles south of D.C., it was as if everyone we visited with came for the rally on Saturday.

The third picture here is a picture in this group of a couple of young ladies we met while touring Thomas Jefferson's home in Charlottesville VA. They are Alyssa on the left and Angie on the right. What a great couple of nice young ladies touring and learning about one of America's great founders and presidents.

On Sunday morning, after the rally on Saturday, it was time for us all to head our separate ways. Head for the house. After breakfast at the lodge restaurant, we, Tina and I, took the other four in our party to the airport in Charlottesville VA and we headed south in our rental van from Enterprise RAC. The other flew into St Louis and then drove the last 50 miles or so from there to their respective houses. Tina and I arrived home on Monday morning at about 0200 and went directly to bed. We needed a day or so to catch up on rest after our time in D.C..

As a quick programing note here. We have been invited to speak at a Tea Party event in Collinsville IL. at the American Legion Hall. We will be there, with the 912 Truck and it would be great to see some of my truck driving friends and area 9/12er's and Tea party Patriots alike.

I will be attempting to speak on honor and honor in activism. I hope to see some of you there.

In the mean time...Here is a novel item for the coming election year.

Obama's Religion...Not Muslim, Not Buddhism, Definately Not Christian

I suppose to understand one's religion, we must first understand what "Religion" or being "religious" really means. The best definition I can find is in Miriam Webster's online dictionary. Following are the definitions. Just click the words for the definitions.



Many years ago, I remember a preacher preaching a sermon on religion. I remember the point being that to be religious, one only has to do something, anything, including going to church to Worship God, with devotion and or regularity. The point being that anything can be done religiously.

We've all heard sayings or phrases like, "he goes to the bank religiously on Friday evening", or "I take my health supplements religiously".

This word, like many in our vocabulary, has been morphed into things not necessarily intended for it's original meaning. I'm not nor do I intend to imply here that being religious is not a good thing. I believe it depends on what one is religious about and ones goals and beliefs as to whether or not it is a good religion.

More to the point is to figure out what we believe "O"'s religious beliefs are or what "O" is religious about these days. Following is my observation concerning "O"'s religion.

I believe Barack Obama worships at the alter of power. Power being his only god. I further believe that his only religion is politics. Stay with me here. You see, Obama's ride, or vehicle, to power is politics just as Christianity through Jesus Christ is our, or at least is my ride, or vehicle to God which is who's alter at which I worship.

If we watch Obama, we invariably see that his faith depends on to whom he is speaking. When he speaks to the Muslims, it seams that he likes to talk about his deep rooted Muslim back ground from his father's. When he speaks to a Christian audience, he likes to talk about his Christian mother and how his faith is grounded in Christian beliefs. Though I haven't seen, because I refuse to watch all his speeches, I suspect the same is true at speeches in front of Catholics, Jews, Budists, Etc.

Being not sure whether I've made my point, let me say here, Obama is a panderer. He worships at the alter of politics, meaning whichever god is politically expedient to the audience to whom he is speaking. Pandering is politics. That makes politics Obama's only real religion and power his only god.

10 Rules for All Conservatives.

Earlier today, in an attempt to make a new friend, I approached someone, another trucker, with whom I thought I may have some like-mindedness. Man was I wrong. My goodness, how stupid of me to think that because we may disagree in one are or more that we can't agree in others.

With that in mind, I compiled a list of rules. This is an ever growing list and one that has been in the making since my political awakening 10 years or so ago. The more I learn about "the other end of the spectrum", the more rules I add.

This is the statement that sparked the compilation of the list.

"By looking at your page I really don't think you want to add me. You claim to be ultra conservative and I am at the other end of the spectrum. You claim that god rules your life and I think he is a really good fairy tale. Not to mention that I am also a Lesbian and think that one groups god should not rule everyone's life."

Now, The list...10 Rules for All Conservatives No 11 Rules.

Rule #1. Those from "the other end of the spectrum" are always matter what!

Rule #2. Diversity can only be required of Conservatives BY those from "the other end of the spectrum."

Rule #3. No Ultra Conservative Christian my be friends with a God denying person from "the other end of the spectrum"

Rule #4. Those of other than "the other end of the spectrum" minds must not ever befriend those from "the other end of the spectrum"

Rule #5. We must introduce ourselves as heterosexual, God Fearing, Bible Thumping, Conservative, gay bashing, homophobic, haters when approaching a lesbian, homosexual, or bisexual, God denying person from "the other end of the spectrum...but only when asked to do so by the person from "the other end of the spectrum as not to be deemed presumptuous of ones beliefs or sexual orientations.

Rule #6. Freedom of speech only applies to those from "the other end of the spectrum"

Rule #7. Profiling is only allowed by those from"the other end of the spectrum" to place all non lesbian, non Homosexual, non bi sexual, non God denying, Christian, Conservatives in one barrel. That would be the hater barrel according to those from "the other end of the spectrum.

Rule #8. There is no allowance for like mindedness unless ALL opinions on ALL subjects are ALL the same as those from "the other end of the spectrum"

Rule #9. Difference of opinion or a different viewpoint is only hate when applied to the ones who disagree with those from "the other end of the spectrum". Otherwise it is only a difference of opinion or a different view point.

Rule #10. When all else fails, refer to Rule #1.

Rule #11. Always assume that when our message can no longer be attacked by those from "the other end of the spectrum" with facts, that the discussion will end with a hateful, usually vial or vulgar slur.

Finally, my response to the one I approached and to whom prompted this list and the eventual posting of the list...

Seriously, I find it terribly disappointing that you believe that because my principles and values are different than yours that we can't have likes or dislikes that are in agreement in other areas of life.

Likewise, I find it discouraging that in an America that preaches diversity of opinion and lifestyle, even thrives on it, that two people who disagree on the existence of God or difference in policy or in politics not only can't but some are even unwilling to search out some like-mindedness in other areas of our lives.

Oh, and I don't believe, in any way, that My God belongs to any one group, as you implied. Salvation, Redemption is there for all who are willing to ask and make an effort to live for the God to whom they look for that Redemption.

Be Well.

So for all you folks out there who may not have the list, feel free to copy as necessary or refer to this site as often as you like. For those of you who wish to add a rule to the list, please leave a comment and once someone from "the other end of the spectrum" is consulted and agrees, I will add it to the list appropriately.
Thanks for your input.

This is their response to the rules...I have tried to remove the vulgarity
Well actually I was just trying to save you from being offended when at some point or another someone pisses me off and I post as my status message "I really wish all those god loving bible thumpers would go be with their god and leave me the f^@# alone". But I ended up offending you anyway just trying to save you from that. I guess thats what I get for trying to be nice.
My bad!

My response to their response to the rules and Rule #11
Well now, imagine that, someone from "the other end of the spectrum" taking it upon themselves to make decisions for others. Isn't that kind of the mantra of those from "the other end of the spectrum"?

It seems that those from "the other end of the spectrum" believe that we, conservative Christians or capitalists, or anyone else with whom they disagree, just aren't smart enough to fend for ourselves so they, those from "the other end of the spectrum" are always setting up blockades to avoid allowing the downtrodden, the simple mined, the less fortunate among us to learn from their perceived mistakes. I just didn't realize that I, as a Conservative Christian, was so fragile of mind, so unable to protect myself.

Quite honestly, madam, what you need to know is this. I am never offended. You see, to be offended one must wear a chip on ones shoulder. To wear a chip on ones shoulder, one must have something in ones life of which they are ashamed or about which they are confused.

I could never be "offended" by anyone's lack of mental clarity, their confusion about or shame of something in their life, not by ones choice of sexual preference, and not even by ones inability to think clearly past a vulgar, filthy diatribe almost always ending in conservative or God, or Bible thumping hater, or homophobe or the most commonly used bigot or racist. You, madam trucker, could never offend me.

Further, I need not any salvation that might be offered by a truck driving lesbian from "the other end of the spectrum".

Finally, While I would never invite an unarmed assailant into my house and start shooting, my partner has advised me that I should not continue a battle of wits with an obviously unarmed assailant.

Good Day Madam and Be Well

By the way, with every proverbial dip of your quill you seem to provide another rule.

Rule #11 for All Conservatives

Rule #11. Always assume that when our message can no longer be attacked by those from "the other end of the spectrum" with facts, that the discussion will end with a hateful, usually vial or vulgar slur.

Be well and God Bless You and Yours

Who is this Guy, I Don't Think Even He Knows.

I was roaming around a bit ago on the net and found a couple of posts from the same guy that are so diametrically opposed to one another you'd think they came from two different people.

I can't figure out how this guy can reconcile these beliefs in his little pea brain. It is obvious to me that he has no idea as to what he truly believes and why he has those beliefs. I have found this to be true in most if not all liberals.

The two posts follow, you decide.

We need to stand for all our people. Just as we stood against slavery and segregation we need to face the problems of today and be prepared to face the problems of tomorrow!

We have to educate our people to stay a step ahead of the world...we have to continue educate our people!

We have to protect our people against fraud and opportunist who feed on the vulnerable!

We have to protect and defend our people and our country...we have to protect and defend our people against disease and infections

We have to provide health care for our people...we have to provide for those who can provide for themselves

We have to guard our people against enemies both foreign & domestic! We have to provide opportunity & insure equality for our people

We have to protect our people...stand up for our people...we have to the land of freedom and opportunity

We are progressing towards a better tomorrow. We have to keep up with the present and stay 10 steps ahead of our enemies!

We need to continue to progress forward! There is no way for the country to go back! There is no need! We need progress...we need to to keep moving forward!

We have to be able to face the challenges of today!

Happy Independence Day
Sunday, July 4, 2010 at 10:38am
As we celebrate this great day, let us remember those who dug our great well of freedom we so freely drink from. Let us remember those who fought for liberty and justice, let us remember those who fought for the American way of life. Where everyone is equal and free, where women are their own persons with the freedom to wear what they want and go where ever they want, let us remember those who lived and died for the civil rights of African Americans, let us remember those who rebelled against the greatest nation of their time and fought a war they couldn't win and let us remember those who dedicated their life...who risked their life...who sacrificed their life for America.

Happy Birthday & May God Bless America!

Hey Arizona, I Think I have a Plan

Okay, so I.C.E. and D.H.S. says the border is more secure now than ever and that they aren't going to work with Arizona officials to deport the Illegal aliens that are jailed in conjunction with Arizona's new immigration law. The law is to go into effect on the 19th of July barring a stay from the courts.

So, if I.C.E. won't work with Arizona for deportation, I say Jan Brewer should put out a call to all illegal aliens and say that if they will come forward between now and the 19th of July, that the state will purchase for them a Greyhound Bus Ticket to any Sanctuary city in the country with no fear of prosecution by the state of Arizona.

I believe that if she would start broadcasting now and promise a ticket to any "sanctuary city' or back to Mexico, their choice, that most illegal aliens would come forward in lieu of capture and prosecution at a later date.

If these tickets were bought 21 days in advance or if buses were chartered they expense, in my humble opinion would be far less than the drain on the state by letting them stay. A ticket form Phoenix to Portland ME would cost about $128.00 if purchased in advance.

I further believe that if they don't come forward on their own and are caught sometime in the future in the state illegally, that they should be jailed, put on work crews in the fields and made to work for their keep in jail. The pay that they would normally receive from an employer, who would be employing them illegally, should be paid to the state by the person whose field in which they are working.

An added portion of the law, if not already there, should be back breaking, crippling fines to the employers caught employing any illegal alien. Between these fines and the wages paid to the state for the work crews, the costs could be offset.

Hello, Remember Me? I'm Your Flag.

I received the following video in an email last week, just before Flag Day. I just really think it goes straight to the point. I believe this is exactly what the progressive movement has been striving for in erase our history, America's History, and to make America; history!

Please watch this video, take it to heart, and make as many copies as you can to pass out to the young people in America. We must recount our history, our greatness, and the memories of those who have fought and died for our Liberties if we are to truly Restore American Exceptionalism.

When is Suicide, Murder?

Okay, look, like everyone else, I don't know the specifics of this case, but what I do know, or believe to be true or "right" is that unless the 9 "mean girls" who were harassing Phoebe Prince actually put the rope around her neck and purposely took away the footing where she was standing, then they are not culpable in her death.

I realize there is a lot of pain for the parents of Phoebe Prince, a lot of fear on the part of the school officials, of a law suit for not intervening, and a political expedience on the part of the DA or the prosecutor in charge of the investigation to place blame somewhere and to get a conviction. That being said, where does the responsibility of the parents and the personal responsibility of the young lady who killed herself come into play?

I believe the key words here are suicide, killed herself, and personal responsibility. Some people have weak minds. Some people just can't deal with life. I have seen many times in the past where someone tries to commit suicide, they fail, and are placed in a mental ward or forced to undergo counseling and placed on medication to "cure" them. I don't know, has anyone who tried to commit suicide and failed ever been successful in placing the blame and getting a conviction of someone driving them to that suicide? My guess is no. So what's the difference?

Well, in my little pea brain there is none, but to the politically motivated prosecutor, the law suit weary school, and the accusatory parents, it must be someones fault other than the poor little dead girls. I believe the "9 mean girls" are guilty...just not of murder. I think they a bullies and should probably suffer some consequences for the crimes they committed. I think if they threw a can of Red Bull at the young lady, they should suffer whatever consequences that crime holds, If they pushed her, shoved her, beat her, or otherwise assaulted her, those things have legal consequences. I don't believe, however, that they should be convicted of, indicted for, or even accused of murder if they didn't place the rope around the girls neck and remove her sound footing from where she stood.

I too was bullied in school. I think everyone, at some point, was bullied. Everyone has someone with whom they disagreed. That usually led to some level of bullying by one or the other. I can't tell you how many time I had my rear end kicked in school. I had a gang of guys who were a year or so older than me, who just had to back me into a corner once a day or their day wasn't complete. Sometimes I fought my way out. Other times a teacher or some of my friends helped me get out, but either way, I usually ended up black eyed or bloody nosed. I had a group of guys who done the same things to a couple other guys smaller, fatter, uglier, smarter, richer, poorer weaker than we were. It's a kid thing. It wasn't something we killed ourselves over though.

Bullying is just a part of life, sometimes you bully, other times you get bullied. We grow up and grow out of it, or we become a politician where bullying your constituents has seemingly become the way of governance in today's government. I don't see the constituency, for the most part, committing suicide though. However, if they did, and left a suicide note that said they were just tired of being bullied, pushed around, and harassed by the government, would the government be prosecuted for murder? I had a friend, a close friend, who committed suicide because he owed the IRS a bunch of money and they continuously harassed him by phone and mail for payment. Are those IRS agents culpable in his death? I mean...I'm just sayin'.

So you tell me. When is suicide murder?

Is the Health care Bill a Suicide Vest?

Okay, so here’s the scenario. Barack Obama is the leader, Osama Bin Laden. Nancy Pelosi is Ayman al-Zawahir and Harry Reid is Abu Yazid, Al Qaida’s number 3 man. The 435 House of Representative members and the 100 Senators are all their minions, the suicide bombers and the 2700 page health care bill that is on the table is the suicide vest meant to steal liberties, and reek financial ruin throughout America while leaving the masses stunned and dumb founded . The 72 virgins are being represented by the power and or job that each of the minions is being promised in exchange for the vote or strapping on the vest.

So the leaders, the ones who are pretty safe at this point are all standing at point telling the minions, it’s for you country, it’s for your party, it’s for the poor, the wretched, the downtrodden, the children. We’ve got your back, we’ll see to it that you and your family are cared for in the end. The voters will forget by November. Just strap on the vest run in there and carry it across the line for us.

We the people know what will happen if the vote yes. We know we won’t forget. We know that some, most of us will survive regardless. We know that many will be hurt. Many of the ones that get hurt will be those that can least afford to be hurt. We’re screaming at the suicide bombers, don’t do it, do strap the vest on, don’t you dare strike out at America in favor of your party politics.

They continue to listen, most of them, to their party leaders, Osama, Zawahir and Yazid. They keep suiting up, strapping on the vest, and right now it appears that they are headed for town square to hurt and maim as many Americans as possible. All in the hopes of more virgins or in this case more power or a job with the administration after the November elections.

In the end, if the bill passes, all 435 jobs of the House of Representatives and 30+ Senators are in trouble. Two of the three leaders are without a doubt secure in their positions and the third, if he loses his Senate seat, will be placed among the other appointed leaders in the administration. I just wonder if it will be worth answering to the true supreme leader when the time comes for them.

Who, who will or will anyone be able to stop the “hell bent on destroying America” suicide bombers. What else can we do to make a final stand? I feel as if we need to make a final march on D.C. the week of the 22nd. I can’t be there before then, but if anyone is willing to go with me, I am in the planning stages now to make that trip if the bill doesn’t pass by the 19th.

It Was Funny “till an Eye Got Put Out”

I remember one time when I was young, my younger brother and I and a few neighbors were having a Bottle rocket war. We were aiming and shooting bottle rockets at each other and having a blast, no pun intended. My mother came out and after a few choice words she demanded we stop shooting bottle rockets at each other before someone got an eye put out. We complied, it was that or suffer the consequences, and I don’t mean standing in a corner for 10 minutes with no toys. Our consequences were real and showed real results.

The next day, mothers at work, we decided to have a BB gun fight. Now, most men my age have done this. That isn’t to say it was smart but we were all John Wayne wanna be’s at one time. About 30 minutes or so into the fight someone got hit, near the eye. It’s been so long ago now, I don‘t even remember who, but the BB was actually embedded into the skin and we had to remove it before our mothers got home from work. No doctors, no Emergency room, no DCFS worker arresting anyone and taking us to a foster home, none of that, but it was fun until an eye nearly got put out.

The best I can tell, there may have been two similar incidents over the weekend. The first one I’ll mention is Carl Edwards in NASCAR purposely wrecking Brad Keselowski after Keselowski seemingly caused Edwards to wreck and destroy an otherwise good chance at a win. Edwards, after his team repaired his ride well enough to get back onto the track and finish the race, purposely waited until Keselowski got near him and without thinking of all the possible outcomes, bumped Keselowski in the left rear ¼ panel area, Keselowski went air born and came down on the driver’s side roof area. Potentially, a very dangerous way to land, luckily, a safe landing and probably a good lesson learned for Keselowski. Now, right or wrong, Edwards couldn’t have known the outcome of his actions, but at 195 mph, anything can happen. It’s kinda like shooting at you neighbors with a BB gun. Somebody is gonna get an eye put out if the horseplay continues.

The second incident involves Congressman Massa from New York. Massa was all about playing the political games, switching parties, giving and getting what he wanted or needed until he was poked in or near the eye. Now I don’t have any idea what happened as far as his votes or his sexual innuendos towards male staffers, or whatever, but my guess is that both sides were playing pretty rough. It certainly appears, on the surface that when he nearly got his eye put out, the game was no longer fun. It was funny ‘till an eye got put out.

Have the Terrorists Already Won?

Have you seen the security at the Superbowl? Have you noticed security at different venues when a crowd exists?

My wife and I were in Miami last Saturday night, early Sunday morning before the Pro Bowl. On the way to our terminal we pass by the stadium in Miami. When I passed the stadium, I looked and seen a massive show of force of homeland security, Miami Dade Police, State Troopers etc.

Today, i was on the phone with a friend of mine who is at the Superbowl which is being held in the same venue as the Pro Bowl last week. He said that the show of force, the unbelievable show of a near militia type police presence is amazing. Armed with automatic weapons, bomb dogs, military like movement throughout.

I look around and we have cameras everywhere, from street cams to stop light cams, security cameras on seemingly every corner.

Have they, the terrorists, already won and we are just too stubborn, proud, mindless to acknowledge the win? I have friends who laugh at me because I won't go to a movie theater with them. I try to stay out of shopping malls and other crowded arenas. Scared, not really, just pessimistically cautious I think. I just would rather not be on every security camera, in the line of every police officer, seen by every security force that exists. I feel invaded every time I have to go into an area that requires that I show I.D. that I wouldn't have had to show before 9/11.

You tell me, have they already won? I believe an argument that they have does exist.

What the???Stop funding "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

Okay, I know I'm just a dumbA%$ truck driver, but what kind of funding is necessary for the infamous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy? Why does it cost us taxpayer money to not ask and not tell that someone is gay?

I just don't get it. My guess is that it will cost more taxpayer money to get this bill, that Congresswoman Gillibrand has apparently introduced, defunded or to stop it's funding than the policy itself costs.

How much can it possibly cost for me not to ask and you not to tell? Look, I wouldn't give a darned whether or not the guy next to me in a fox hole is gay or not. I don't want to be involved with him more than to defend his life or he defend mine, but his choices in life are his. He has his God to answer to, he need not answer to me. My belief is that if the military has vetted him, trained him, and moved him forward with his training in the defense of our country, I can trust him to fight when needed and die if asked. Why would I question the military leaders who have defended this country for so many years.


I'm telling you, these people that we have placed in office in D.C. are despicable. These folks will not only waste taxpayer funds on hand, but they are now wasting borrowed taxpayer funds.

I'm begging you folks, anyone in America, who cares about America, get these dirt bag, spend thrift, low life, caterwauling, thieving, misguided, miscreants out of Washington D.C., out of our seats, out of power, and back to the failing households from whence they come.

My Brain is Tired

I am truly sorry for the lack of posting to this site. Please understand that as much as I want to post here, my brain is just tired. I have grown tired of putting forth the effort to provide my opinion. Unlike many other blog sites and web sites that have grown out of the conservative movement in America, I don't just copy and paste or provide opinion on articles from other sites or sources. Mine are mostly opinion on current events.

I will be back. Please continue to check back as often as you can. I am merely resting and trying to get my thoughts together on many fronts.

In the mean time, if you want some good reading, valuable information and a great conservative opinion, please visit I really like this site.

Again, don't give up on me, I am merely resting my pea brain and trying to get it back into shape for the upcoming fights on health care, cap and trade and the 2010 election cycle. Check back when you can and I will be writing, just not as often as I once wrote.

Health Care? Judge Them by Their Works

Usually, when one goes for a job interview, their past is researched to find at what level of performance the person performed. Many things are taken into consideration. Length of employment, at each job prior, job performance, attitude, attendance, pay scale and increases, etc.. that being said, let's have a look at the job performance of our U.S. Government and determine whether or not they should be allowed to control 1/6th of the largest economy on earth.

In 1775 the United States Postal Service was created. It was created to stand on it's own. Money derived from revenue to be reused as operating funds. It is said, on the USPS website, that they get no tax dollars to operate, however stamps go up consistently to cover the red ink of the prior years. 235 years later, not much more efficient than 1775 and still broken. I was always fired when I didn't make money for the company in the current year. I didn't get the next year to cover my rior losses. Where's congress? Still on the horse, runnin' the mail.

In 1935 the Social Security Administration was created to start stealing your tax dollars and redistributing them to the folks who didn't work, wouldn't work, wouldn't work hard enough or couldn't seem to save enough for retirement. This started a, now 75 year old, Ponzi Scheme destined to fail when the retired outnumber those contributing. Today,we are about 7 years from the tipping point. Bernie Madoff went to jail for his job performance. Where's congress? Well, they are still at the helm stealing and spending, frivolously, your tax dollars.

F.D.R. has his place in history, on several occasions, but one of the most famous was Fannie Mae. Fannie Mae was created in 1938, during the Great Depression, to make more available, mortgages, to low-income families during the Great Depression. In 1968, the Government converted Fannie Mae to a private, share-holder owned corporation. In 2008, the government bailed out the "private share holder corporation, fired its ceo's, and now owns about 80% in preferred stock against the, hmmmhmmmm, private share holder corporation. Where's congress? 72 years later they are still running the organization into the ground, guaranteeing mortgages, with your stolen tax dollars, that shouldn't be made, for folks who shouldn't have a mortgage and blaming the problem on conservatism.

In 1964, Congress passed the "Economic Opportunity Act" which culminated from Lyndon B. Johnson's, Jan 8, 1964, State of the Union address. This created the Office of Economic Opportunity to steal and re-distribute, locally, your federal tax dollars to combat poverty. Thus, the War on Poverty was declared. 46 years later, the war is still on, it seems to be expanding to a "Global War on Poverty", and we are still losing the war. Those who won't, continue to want, those who do, continue to contribute to those who want and won't. Where's congress? Stealing more tax dollars from those who work, for those who won't. It seems they have found a way to stay in the peoples employ. They'll just fund the ones that won't, with the stolen tax dollars from those who do.<-(I know mother, I ended that one in a prep. so what?)

Another of Lyndon B Johnson's miscarriages was Medicare and Medicaid for the elderly and indigent.Created in 1965 as part of the Social Security Act, and that started us on a downhill roll headed for...well you know. Today, Medicare and Medicaid, have been expanded over the years to cover, poor, indigent, disabled, unwilling, unable, and it's for the children too, through SCHIP. Where's Congress now? 45 years later, still trying to cover more people with less money and stealing more of your tax dollars for funding these intellectually challenged programs.

A replacement for Fannie Mae was created in 1970 in the form of a younger brother, Freddie Mac. It was destined to fail, and that destiny is reached each year.Where's Congress? 40 years later, still funding, with more of your stolen tax money, and still reaching is destiny of failure.

In 1977, Jimmy Carter birthed, from the many subsequent agencies that followed the Atomic Energy Commission after WWII, the Department of Energy. The real purpose of this, as stated by Jimmy himself, was to reduce and eventually eliminate the need for foreign oil. Where's Congress today? Today, that cabinet level department of the United States Government, consists of about 16000 employees, another 93,100 contractors and about 24 billion dollars in funding from your stolen tax dollars. We are no closer to energy independence today than in 1977, as a matter of fact, we import more oil today than ever, all the while, more oil rich land, and sea floor, is discovered in this country, nearly daily.

In 1979, oh yeah, another Carter abomination, the Department of education was created. The department of education was charged with creating programs to generate funds for education and for the enforcement of privacy and civil rights laws...according to Wikipedia. Now, I'm not sure what the enforcement of privacy and civil rights laws has to do with education so I suppose I'll leave that alone. Where's congress today? Though this is supposedly the smallest of the cabinet level departments, it housed about 5000 full time employees in 2007 and has an annual budget of nearly 63 billion dollars and another 97 billion in funding from the ARRA "American Reinvestment and Recovery Act" of 2009. That's 160 billion dollars for the Department of Education, and in 2008 the United States ranked 21st out of 27 industrialized nations for a graduation rate.

The ARRA, "American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009" 787 billion dollars of stolen tax dollars, was to keep the unemployment rate below 8%. That promise was made by Barak Obama. Today, the government reports an unemployment rate of around 10%, yes 2 full points above the promise. But if that isn't bad enough, the realistic number stands at about 17%, when you include those who have given up looking for work, run out of benefits, are working part time(underemployed), and those that have never looked for work on welfare, homeless etc. Where is Congress? They continue to insist that a 2nd stimulus package is needed, more tax dollars for the needy, from the working. They continue to pump your stolen tax dollars into the unemployment benefits program and all that does is encourage the out of work to stay that way. The unemployed, now, can draw nearly 2 years of benefits, at least they can in Illinois.

Lastly, our, America's unfunded Liabilities total about 112 trillion dollars. Unfunded liabilities are entitlements are entitlement programs that have been promised but aren't yet funded. Would you still have a job if you ran a deficit of 112 trillion dollars over what you had money. I would suggest your job would be in jeopardy.

So why all the afore mentioned failures? Again, when we go for a job interview, our past is researched, when we apply for a Concealed Carry permit, our past is scrutinized, If I, as a Commercial Vehicle Driver, apply for a Hazardous Materials endorsement to be added to my license, I am fingerprinted and a background check is performed by the FBI.

Congress has applied for the job of reforming Health Care in the United States, I have given you here, a brief summary of a minuscule number of the many failures of our United States Government. This summary doesn't even touch on absenteeism, pay, attitude, budget overruns etc.. Are you really considering hiring this bunch of incompetent miscreants to overhaul and administer your health care in America?
