Since 2006 when the Democrats took control of the House and Senate, our Country has spiraled down a dangerous path; amnesty and immigration, high fuel prices, rising unemployment, bank failures, the completely manufactured ‘housing’ crisis, Government bail outs, and now, the election has become all about The Economy.
Today, the future of our nation as we know it hangs in the balance, and today, we vote and there are so many more crucial items that we should consider before casting our ballot. All of the following are extremely important to me and should be to everyone:
Second Amendment Rights and Gun Control
Halting Illegal Immigration
Reducing Our Reliance On Foreign Energy Sources
The Rights of The Unborn and Partial Birth Abortion
Judicial Appointments Including Supreme Court and Federal Judges
Free Speech and The Reimposing Of The ‘Fairness Doctrine’
Isn’t it strange that these topics were glossed over during the debates? I wonder why. We all know why, that it was because of Obama’s extremely liberal/socialistic/Marxist views of them!
I have already chosen to cling to my gun and my religion and have cast my vote, straight Republican, for McCain/Palin.
Today, please do the same.
The Second Amendment of our Constitution guarantees us a fundamental right to bear arms. It reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. It can’t be any more plain than this!
Monday a week ago, June 28, 2010, our Supreme Court, in a close 5-4 vote, ruled that this right cannot be violated by state and local governments. It was a great victory for gun owners and gun rights advocates. But stop and look at this vote, four judges on our Court voted against this case along with the 2008 Heller v. District of Columbia case. In the Heller case, the Court first recognized an individual gun right under the Second Amendment. This decision blocked a very restrictive federal ban on handguns in the District of Columbia.
Back to the Judges, are these four judges are voting against our Bill of Rights and our Constitution? Obviously these four Judges are anti-gun. How about the current nominee to the Court Elena Kagan? She’s anti-gun too, replacing “anti-gunner”, Justice John Paul Stevens, but, luckily, this nomination will not upset the fragile pro-gun balance.
Call, or e-mail, your Senators and tell them not to vote to confirm this woman. This is our last chance to stop her. Just think, if these nomination hearings were to be held in January, 2011 there is no way she would be confirmed.
On this past Monday I joined [Oath Keepers], an organization of men and women who have taken the oath to support and defend our constitution. The group is made up of present and former military, police and fireman. I took the oath in March 1959 when I was sworn in as an Army officer and it is a lifetime oath.
From their website, “Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution”
Our motto is, NOT ON OUR WATCH!
Orders we will not obey are:
1. Orders to disarm the American people.
2. Orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people.
3. Orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or subject them to military tribunal.
4. Orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.
5. Orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.
6. Orders to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
7. Orders to force any American citizen into detention camps under any pretext.
8. Orders to assist or support any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or “to maintain control”.
9. Orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.
10. Orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
Pretty simple, isn’t it.
One of my right wing radical friends sent me this picture of the anti-government protesters in one of our unnamed cities. I agree with this fellow whose sign reads, “Spread My Work Ethic, Not My Wealth”. Our Country would be well served to do this very thing!
Over one million, dangerous right wing radicals, turned out in force for the many Tea Parties across our country. The liberal media portrayed them as anti-American and one CNN reporter said the protesters were anti-CNN. Once CNN becomes “fair and balanced”, I’m sure us radicals will support them too.
Our rulers Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently issued a Threat Assessment regarding the potential threats posed by right wing extremists, read “conservatives”. Being one of those potentials, I take exception to the entire nine pages of liberal trash!
Early this morning, Fox News interviewed Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the DHS. Fox’s Steve Doocie really pressed her about the latest Threat Assessment from DHS. She was quick to say that this was just an assessment of potential threats, then for the next five minutes she hemmed, hawed, erd, you knowed, well uhd and so on. This woman was governor of Arizona? What a joke and embarrassment this woman was and is. How in the world could she be placed in charge of our homeland security?
One part of the assessment highlighted that our veterans returning from combat may become far right wing extremists. This, like the entire report, was not based on any known fact, only some left wing whacko’s thoughts or wishes. On Wednesday she apologized to our returning veterans saying, “If there’s one part of this report that I would rewrite … it would be that.”
This morning, Steve also took her to task about the reports stating the potential dangers abortionists face from those that don’t agree with their line of work. She fell for his trap! He told her that he was Catholic and that his Church was adamantly opposed to abortion. Was she lumping his Church into the potential “threat” list? She replied, “If there’s one part of this report that I would rewrite … it would be that.” The woman repeats herself.
In my humble opinion, she should rewrite or dump the entire Threat Assessment!
This past Tuesday I sent the following e-mail to my two Senators, Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn and to my Representative, Mike Conaway asking them not to vote for Obama’s staggering budget proposal. This budget, if passed in its entirety, would cripple and bankrupt our Country.
“Please vote against Obama’s soaring trillion dollar debt, his $2 trillion in new taxes to help fund his global warming (cap and trade) schemes and his national healthcare plans.
Not only will these schemes triple our national debt over the next ten years, they will also destroy our Country as we know it!”
Please contact your Senators and Representatives and ask them not to support this ruinous budget! If you don’t have their phone or e-mail go to[www.congress.org] for the information.Â Also, they can be reached through the Congressional switchboard at 1-866-349-9281.
If regular folks like us get involved, we can make a difference!
While waiting for Brad to see his doctor, I was reading through the Feb/March, 2009, issue of “Military History” and came across a Letter To The Editor from Mr. Gerhardt B. Thamm, and two lines of his letter came blaring out at me, “he (Hitler) converted, via a self created national emergency, his reign into a totalitarian dictatorship.” The hair on the back of my neck stood up as these lines triggered a recent memory of someone quoting White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, saying “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste!”
Maybe I’m scared? Maybe I’m cautious? The reason I’m having these concerns is because of what’s happening in my country and the plans and actions of our rulers! Listing out these plans and actions those hairs stood up again!
1. The creation of a Civilian Security Force manned and funded equal to the U.S. military – sounds just like Hitler’s Brown Shirts!
2. Controlling/managing private business – sounds just like the Fascists!
3. Violation of our Second Amendment rights with gun control through quasi-regulation using the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009 that is quietly worming its way through Congress – sounds just like the Fascists!
4. Expansion of government into our lives and our homes. Obama said that government will watch over your children from the day they are born – sounds just like Hitler Youth and the Fascists to me!
5. Silencing of dissent and violation of our right to Free Speech through informal implementation of The Fairness Doctrine. Obama’s nominee for FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski, believes that radio and TV station ownership should be more diverse and government should control that ownership! Sounds like Hugo Chavez nominated this guy!
Does history really repeat itself?
If regular folks like us get involved, we can make a difference!
This past Monday Brad and I had gone to meet with one of his Doctors at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio and finishing early, stopped and met Randy at Rogelio’s Mexican Restaurant for another fine lunch, Driving back home, Brad said, “Dad, why don’t we stop at Cabela’s.” Enough said, even though we had stopped there 2 weeks ago!
Driving in, the parking lot was almost half full and this at 1:30 PM on a work day. Once inside we headed for the gun department and most of the crowd, truly a testament to diversity, was there. Signs were up to the effect that they couldn’t keep adequate supplies of reloading supplies. I wonder why? We even had to take a number.
We bought some .22 bullets and Brad stepped up and bought a single action, .22/.22 mag. pistol. Since Brad has a “carry permit” this transaction went quickly. When you buy a gun there, you check out at a register in the gun department and, for the appearance of safety, the salesman walks you out of the store. As we were walking out, our salesman leaned over to me and said, “We’ve been Obamanized for over a month.” I smiled and walked on to Brad’s truck.
It looks like the folks in central Texas are stocking up for the long haul!
Yesterday, our “rulers” in Washington rammed the pork laden, stimulus package down our throats, even though polls showed that almost 70 percent of the American people were opposed to it. These same “rulers” want our guns!
As shooters, hunters and gun owners, we are already being targeted by this new administration with subtle threats that all point toward the taking away or seriously limiting our access to our guns and even our ammunition! Some of our adversaries are all to familiar; Eric Holder, Attorney General, Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff and Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State.
These politicians, our “rulers” and their anti gun cronies, are all to eager to force us into gun registration, gun licensing, ammunition bans and the imposition of huge Federal taxes on our guns and ammo. All of this with the intent to neuter our Second Amendment!
You ask, “But what can I do.” You’d be surprised at what one person can do. Make a lot of noise! Join the National rifle Association who speaks loudly for our gun rights! Upgrade your NRA, membership to a Life or Endowment member. Call and fax both your State and Federal Congressman, and Senators and don’t forget your Governor. Let them all know that you oppose any efforts to weaken or dilute our Second Amendment.
If we sit on our thumbs, we’ll lose this right that so many Patriots have fought and died for. Everyone must get involved and get active!
Being a Christian, a hunter and a fisherman is my choice of ‘things’ I prefer, not politics. But at times like this, especially this ridiculous Stimulus Package, our great silent majority needs to stand up and be heard. Saturday I sent the following e-mail to one of my Texas Senators, John Cornyn, a member of the Senate Finance Committee. I also sent a very similar one to our other Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchinson.
“Subject: The Stimulus Package
I know that I don’t have to tell you that the bill passed by the Democrats in the House this past week provides very little stimulus to our economy! However, it does stimulate the various special interests groups that were crucial to the Democrat Party’s win this past November. The Wall Street Journal calls it the list of forty years of pent up Democrat demand!
Senator Cornyn, in your position on the Senate finance Committee, I certainly hope you can ‘drum’ it in the rest of the committee members heads, that we don’t need a stimulus package like this one, we need meaningful tax cuts. Tax cuts like the elimination of the capital gains tax, the reduction or elimination the business tax, the making permanent of the Bush tax cuts, all coupled with an elimination of wasteful spending (that last item is kind of an oxymoron).
Thank you for being a conservative voice for our Senate and thank you for all you have done for the State of Texas!

Everyone should ‘burn up the internet’ with e-mails or faxes to their Senators about this farce of a Stimulus Package and we, perhaps, can bring some sanity to this ‘astute’ group. Maybe that’s an oxymoron too!
