Thankful

I have so much to be thankful for this year. Thankful for my family. Thankful for the freedoms we enjoy every day. Thankful that I am home with my family this year. Thankful for all the men and women that have missed holidays with loved ones. Thankful all those that have sacrificed some and for those that have sacrificed all.

I am thankful every time I turn on a faucet and water comes out. I am thankful that my younger brother is back from Iraq and was able to spend Thanksgiving with the family. I'm thankful for my wife and my two healthy boys.

I thank all that frequent my blog. I thank all the people that posted today. I thank all my brothers who were with me in the box.

"If you can read this, thank a teacher, if you can read it in English, thank a vet." I've heard that quote before, and it always rings true. There are many who would think otherwise, but that is the nice result of all the sacrifice and struggle, the ability for some to be sheep and live a life of ignorance and bliss.
I know that this is only a few, and most that frequent my blog know truth. I am thankful for that. I am thankful that we still live in a country that is free, and we should be thankful for that every day...who knows when freedom will be jerked from our hands, or slowly pulled away?

Thanks to all of you, and God bless America.

Sad day

It was with a heavy heart that I read about the new president this morning. The knowledge that many investigating agencies turned a blind eye to incidents that would have crashed any other presidents, gives me faint hope that perhaps this could still turn around.

Allegations that Obama is in league with Gaza and accepting terrorist money has gone un-investigated, as well as the concerns of citizens that Obama is not even a natural born citizen.
Philip Berg attempted a lawsuit demanding Obama show an original birth certificate from Hawaii that, thus far, he has failed to show. Obama's own Kenyan grandmother claims she was at the hospital in Kenya where he [Obama] was born. What is the reply by a liberal judge who decided the case?

"Plaintiff would have us derail the democratic process by invalidating a candidate for whom millions of people voted."

Sounds like he's saying, "Lets not let facts get in the way of what we want, we can't introduce anything that would disbar Obama from becoming president!"

For now, I'm still "clinging to my outdated values of religion, family and guns." Never mind that those values are what this country was founded on. Here's praying this fiasco can still be overturned...
