Dear Patriots:

Dear Patriots:
William G Burmer

During the 2008 campaign Barrack Husain Obama was accused by some of plagiarism when he quoted from Deval Patrick's "Just Words" speech of 15 October 2006. Not lost in this event is the fact that Governor Patrick is a Democrat and Black. He was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2007.
Barrack quoted Governor Patrick by saying "Don't tell me words don't matter, 'Obama told the Wisconsin audience,' "I have a dream" Just Words, We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal" just Words, We have nothing to fear but fear itself, just words."
I remember clearly the impression I had at the time I heard him make this quote that he had no real reverence for these particular quotations as did Governor Patrick; on the contrary, Obama was callously, in vial tones, making fun of them. Those who chided him for plagiarism, writing long articles on the subject, missed the mark all together.
For months now "Words, just words" has troubled by mind as echoed from Obama's lips, and were regurgitated by him again in 2012. Matter of fact, for those who have followed his speeches with any degree of regularity cannot escape the notion that they have heard the same words over and over and over again. One is left to conclude that he has nothing really original to say or express, since he lacks any obvious sense of integrity, or convictions other than his bloated ego.
It is too obvious to be ignored that on January 24 at his inauguration his "Oath of Office" sadly and forever were, and became "Words, just words." Obama's view of our constitution, the Bill of Rights, Americas heritage, history and World Power status are meaningless to him. If The majority of the Congress and The Senate cannot find it in themselves to observe the moral decay he has created, and be critical of his total disregard for his oath of office, they must in the eternities share responsibility for Americas fall from the grace of God.
As an American, as a Veteran, as a human being I grieve for my country that I have loved all my life, that I would live to see it devoured by vicious wolfs, trampled on by those whose hearts are hard, vial and past feeling. Where are our patriot leaders, those who will choose the right, and be valiant in truth and stand for liberty, those who eschew evil?
Our Nation and its people ought to be crying for mercy day and night from almighty God. I pray this is the case.

Liberty For Security

Liberty For Security

Kevin Bryant 

Our founding fathers knew there was no better way for men and women to protect themselves than to allow them the liberty to use whatever means available to them including firearms.  

It was not uncommon when the “the colonies” were still under British rule for women and children to be gang raped by British soldiers. Of course this was done after the soldiers confiscated the owner’s weapons. Many times this was done with the men of the house were away. 

It was not uncommon during the civil war for both Union and Confederate soldiers to gang rape women and children of the south. Rarely was there distinction between black and white women and children. Both were brutally raped and beaten regardless of skin color. 

There are multiple rapes and attempted rapes happening every day in America and other countries. What the media never tells you is there are more rape victims per capita in almost every country other country of the world than here in America. The media will tell you a rape attempt was foiled by mace, pepper spray, even a stun gun, but when was the last time the media told you more attempted rapes are foiled by a handgun than all other methods combined.   

Lastly, when was the last time you heard of an on duty police officer stopping a rape in progress? I never have. I have seen it happen on television but not once have I seen or read about it in the news. 

Here we are, our own government telling us we would be safer as a society if we place more restrictions and limits on firearm ownership. We have cities on the both coast paying as much as $200 for every gun they get turned in. How many believe by turning in these weapons, a crime was stopped before it started? Only a fool would believe that. Anyone with criminal intent will find a way to commit his/her crime. My father once told me “locks are only in place to keep an honest man honest”. He was right. 

Over 1200 murders a year, more than 3 murders per day, are committed in ways other than the use of a firearm here in America. 400+ are done with the use of a hammer alone, 500+ done with a knife or ball bat.  

Restricting firearms does not name us safer at all. The only thing firearm restrictions do is make a criminal more likely to complete his crime.  

The police are not going to stop a crime. They get called at best, when one is in progress. Most often it is after the criminal has already left the site. Police on average have just over a 5 minute response time. In smaller towns and rural areas, the response time could be upwards of 1 hour or more.  

After the vote in congress, our whiner-n-chief cried about not passing tougher gun legislation. He flat out lied to the public saying 90% of Americans were for tougher background checks. NO, 90% of Americans are for making it more difficult for criminals to get weapons. This bill did nothing to stop them. He cried out to Americans to punish their senators…. I say praise those who voted against it. He stated the “gun lobby”, meaning the NRA and its allies lied about the bill. They stated nothing that wasn’t true. Obama claimed these “gun lobbies” lied about a national data base. Truth is, in the bill it requires all states to hand over “upon request” of the federal government all information pertaining to gun licensing, background checks and registration to the federal government.  

Once again, the whiner-n-chief used the still mourning parents of Newtown as props so he could shamefully exploit them. He has ZERO shame in using people for his political purposes. Now he going to use them again as he tries to get by executive order what he didn’t get in congress.  

Would this bill have stopped a single assault…NO. Would it prevent a single rape, mugging, home invasion or murder…NO. Chicago and Washington D.C. are perfect examples of what the first impacts of this legislation would have looked like. What it would have done was to open the doors for more assaults on the constitution and the bill of rights.  

Unless we have less, not more gun control in this country, you will be no safer than you are at this very moment. The BIG LIE is government can protect you. No they can’t. YOU are your first line of defense. The police can investigate, the police can draw outlines around your body but they can’t protect you any better than you can protect yourself. As things are now, it won’t be MY body that has the chalk outline drawn around it if my home is invaded. Had this passed, it would put me at greater risk, and emboldened the intruder.

10 undeniable truths

10 undeniable truths
Ron Boat

This will be the shortest article I've ever written, because I feel it's important to spend more time thinking about it... than reading it.

1-    You have a president and administration who deceives and lies to you.

2-    You have a president and administration who subverts the very foundation of our country - the Constitution.

3-    You have a president and administration that steals from you to support those who placed them in power or might even harm you.

4-    You have a president and administration that wantonly wastes.

5-    You have a president and judicial branch who promotes lawlessness, racism, disorder and potential tyranny.

6-    You have a national media that denies, ignores, or twists truth.

7-    You have self-serving corruption at every level of our financial structure, banking, unions, and big business.

8-    You have a growing populous lazy, dependent, uninspired, and bereft of morals.

9-    You have a declining, unstable environment for business, creativity, and growth.

10- You have a future left wanting for peace, freedom, independence and prosperity.

Is this any way to live?

I leave you to your thoughts.

Grumpy Old White Guys,

Grumpy Old White Guys,
Kevin Bryant 

I did something over the weekend that I usually only do about 3 to 4 times a year. I went to Al’s page and read the comments on many of the postings. Why do I only do this a few times a year? I do it because I don’t want to get too hung up on the statements then try to tailor the opinions that I do write to the readers. I do appreciate the comments and welcome all, positive and negative and my email address is even posted on the website if someone wants to send me a direct message they do not wish to share with everyone. I do read my emails most days of the week though rarely do I check them on weekends.  

The perception of conservatives in general is that we are all just a bunch of grumpy old white guys who refuse to …… (my favorite word lately) EVOLVE and accept and embrace the liberal ideas for a “more perfect world”. Lenin, Mao, Marx and Hitler all believes they were creating a more perfect world as did our forefathers. The difference is, our forefathers did create a more perfect world by allowing the people of the United States to hold the power and delegate it to representatives. More importantly, they gave the people the power to remove those representatives if they did not do the job they were elected to do, which was nothing more than be the voice of the people whom elected them to office.  

In some ways I guess I am a grumpy old white guy because I do not like the changes I see happening. 

One reader – Barb P.: I don’t know who you are but I spent a lot of time on Sunday reflecting on many of your comments over the past 4 months. With a name like Barb P., I don’t believe you qualify as a “grumpy old white guy”, however I do like the way you express yourself. Have you ever thought about writing?  

Conservatives aren’t just grumpy old white guys. If that were true, my son would be like a fish out of water. Barb P. and my wife and many of my wife’s female friends would likewise be like fish out of water. Poor Dr. Ben Carson, absolutely not a grumpy old white guy, so what in the world we call him? Personally I call him a very courageous and inspirational man willing to take the heat for expressing his beliefs.  

There are many who hold conservative beliefs but do not express them; for fear of reprisal or worry over being shunned by members of their community or for whatever reasons. I still have my “Buck Ofama” magnet on the back of my car and I refuse to take it off except when my wife or daughter rides in the car and I am going through rough neighborhoods. I have been honked at, flipped off and once I had a pistol pointed at me just for expressing my opinion through the use of that magnet. Rarely do I drive through them except to go to my in-laws or to the VA hospital.  

The point of all of this is simple. Liberals will dismiss me, Al, Grant & Ron as nothing but stereotypical grumpy old white guys and why not, they have been doing it for years and have many actually believing it. Rand Paul is really the only nationally known high profile white male trying to change that. Think about it, how many other “white guys” have gone to an all black college and gave a speech on conservatism and the makeup of who conservatives really are.  Sure there are the Ann Coulter’s and Michelle Malkin’s out there but it’s easy to paint them as right wing extremist. It’s harder to paint everyday bill and house juggling housewives, working moms, especially minorities who fit that description as right wing extremist. Write your opinions to your local paper(s), send comments to left wing bloggers and TV/Radio personalities. Let them know conservatives aren’t just grumpy old white guys, they are also high school and college students, housewives, career minded men and women of all colors, creed, sexual orientation, religious/non-religious beliefs.  

Until the opinions of conservatism is changed at the bottom, the ideas of conservatism will struggle to be heard or felt at the top.
