War! What is it good for?...

Let me tell you a story about sacrifice, terror, honor, pride, and the righting of wrongs.

On a bright, sunny morning, while the world was just barely waking up, terror in the skies came barrelling down on America.

Buildings fell, humans burned and died in the horrible attacks.

We were hit by a small country, part of the Axis of Evil. They struck us fast, hard, and by suprise. We had people who might have seen it coming, but predicting the day time and location of the attacks was nearly impossible.

Immediately after the slaughter of American lives, we went to action. We went after the country that hit us. We bombed the crap out of them and paid them back. Death and war is never pleasant, but this was revenge. They had awaken a dangerous, powerful beast that was lulled to sleep by peace and its own power. We went to work to kick their hind parts into oblivion.

Then, we also went to work on an ally who had similar intentions for us. While they had not directly attacked us, we knew they were coming and we had to stop all of this evil force at once. We were hit hard by their little buddy, and we were sure as we could that we needed to stop everyone who had destruction and violence planned against us and our people.

We beat the two countries into submission. We defeated the evil powers. Then, we went to work rebuilding the same countries. In time, they became as strong, if not stronger, in many areas than the United States.

We are a powerful country who reacted to a swift and painful blow to push evil back and out of power. We restored the people of those countries to power and helped them prevent future dictatorships from returning.

Now, as you read the above, today, the somber anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, were you thinking of World War II...or the current War on Terror? Whenever you want to trash our country for going into Iraq, remember: Germany never attacked us, either.

We are a great country. We have the greatest military. Our troops are excellent. They always have been. They always deserve our support.

Foley is SICK...And the politics of Children's Safety.

Okay, so by now I am sure you have heard something about the Republican congressman that e-mailed or instant messaged a young male page. The content of those messages was rather explicit, on occasion, and definitely showed some inpropriety on the part of Foley.

Let me preface the following paragraphs with this bit of information. I have no problem with homosexual people. I do not in anyway support their lifestyle or their choice in partners, but, as a whole, as it pertains to the individual person, I do not hold ill will or other prejudice towards homosexuals. I would rather they choose the natural order of things and love the opposite sex, but I do not have that power. So, to be straight and clear, I do not hate or judge or discriminate against gays, lesbians, or homosexuals in general. I don't agree with their choices. That doesn't make me a bad person. I disagree with their opinions on certain issues.

So, that being said, I want to say that I think Foley is sick for abusing his position of power to coerce a teenage boy into a homosexual relationship. The whole story is sick and dispicable. His solicitation of a homosexual relationship from a young boy is wrong on every level. I think Foley is sick and I am glad he resigned. If he committed any crime, throw him in jail! Throw away the key.

Now, what is almost as bad as Foley is the liberal left's handling of the situation. A group funded by billionaire liberal whacko George Soros had the incriminating documents as early as April of this year. Instead of turning it over to authorities immediately, they held it until we are just over 1 month from election time. Makes sense, right? Use a scandal to regain the House and Senate.

Why not?

I will tell you why not. I will also tell you why our country cannot afford to allow this tactic to work.

First, this evidence was not just some incriminating documents...this was proof of a child/sexual predator. So, they held evidence that could stop one young man from being taken advantage of, and possible prevent future abuses, for political gain. Makes you wonder what they would NOT have hidden. Is there any level at which the left will not hide evidence until it suits their needs?

Its scary to think what they might cover up until it is politically beneficial, no matter how much suffering and pain and criminal activity may ensue by their irresponsibility. Do you think that information that could prevent a terrorist attack would be immune from being held up if the liberals thought it could help their cause?

Second, the liberals are always trumpeting their support of gay rights and NAMBLA and such. Yet, they don't care to throw gays under the bus when they think they can step on them to move forward. The democrats are threatening to out gay republicans and go after any gay person to hurt the rebulicans as we go toward the election. Their hypocrisy is scary.

I really think that anyone who held documents that incriminated Foley should be arrested for obstruction of justice.

I hope the voters can see the truth through the smoke screen of the left and the liberal media. I hope they don't give the power of the US Congress to a bunch of cut-and-run, never-get-the-job-done, raise-your-taxes, throw-gays-and-minorities-and-anyone-we-choose-under-the-bus-when-it-suits-our-needs liberals.

Then again, there is only so long that the loud, obnoxious screams of the liberal media and Hollywood will stay ineffective. Perhaps this November will be painful for the Conservative cause...and only the new media of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity will point out the obvious problems with this situation.

Liberal Ignorance

Appearantly, calling for a renewed focus on upholding the laws of our sovereign land is racist.

Wanting to rid the US of illegal immigrants is bigoted.

On May 1, 2006, I posted a blog about the national walk-out by many Hispanics. The theory was the walk-out would demonstrate the importance of illegal aliens to our economy. Nice theory except the walk-out included MOSTLY legal citizens, including many liberal WHITES.

My blog attacked that walk-out and called for tighter borders and for people who wanted to be a part of the US to go through the proper channels.

Somehow a call to follow and strengthen the enforcement of LAW is racist. I still do not grasp the logic. Now, the question is, what inspired this blog about a 4 month old blog? The following response to my blog typed today will show you my inspiration.

This is the exact response, word for word, cut and paste exactly as posted, typos included.:

I understand now that you are a very sick individual who is not only ignorant to life but a bigot with no moral values what so ever. I stumbled across your page today and so far I find you to be a racist, a bigot and someone with no moral values what so ever.

You are now encouraging everyone who reads your words to go out and shoot someone, but direct this mostly to immigrants. Are you aware Mr. "I have a college degree" that everyone in America is a immigrant except for the Native American of which you are not one of? Do you suggest that we just go around and eliminate everyone unless they have blond hair and blue eyes, which again would not include you.

You make claim to having a degree from college and I wonder just which university of higher learning taught you all of these values? You claim to be from West Virginia; however there must be another one because I was never brought up to hate other races.

Our country was founded on protest; take the Boston tea party as a great example. In this country people have rights to protest and boycott without fear of someone gunning them down. This right is not found in other countries but our rights are etched in the Bill of Rights as well as the Constitution.

Today I have found so much hate in all your words for all you post. In college they should have taught you how civilized people sit down and discuss issues and find a peaceful resolution to them. It was not too many years agao that dr. Martin Luther King lead peaceful marches though out the south to gain civial rights for the blacks. Blacks who protested were shot, killed whipped and beaten. Blacks were treated unfair and though peaceful methods things changed in the south.

Do you fear change? Do you condone violence as the way to resolve this issue? Your words rightfully could inside violence and result in death should anyone take you serious. I will once again suggest that you select your words with the up most caution and place your anger and violence where no one could read it as not to act upon it. Your words could cause another columbine, or an act as the one committed by timothy McVeigh or even the World Trade center.

I strongly feel you are a threat to our homeland security and should be closely monitored for fear of what you may do with the anger you seem to hold on to. Please seek immediate help from a professional mental heath counselor for your own good ant the welfare of others you may come in contact with.

Incredible. On some levels, I am flattered because this kook thinks I have enough influence to encourage someone on to go out and shoot someone. For anyone with any sense, they know that the line about "Trespassers will be shot" is a tongue-in-cheek remark, much like when Rush Limbaugh claims to have "talent on-loan from God!" or claims to be "America's REAL anchorman," an obvious rib or a famous liberal "news" anchor (news in " " because liberals do not report "news," but propaganda and lies and spin, see Dan Rather forged document story...).

So, I am flattered that my little old blog has that much influence. Thank you, Harold.

Now, to the more serious issue purported by a bitter person. This is the matter of me being full of hate, being a bigot, and being racist. In communications classes, I learned that publishing lies such as this is called LIBEL, but I won't sue. I will merely point out the idiocy of people like this.
First, I have NO PROBLEM AT ALL with any man, woman, or child of any race, religion, sexual orientation, or origin. I may not agree with parts of their lifestyle, but in AMERICA we can actually disagree and move on with our lives.

I have no problems with, and actually welcome, people of all walks and origins and races and creeds to my country. It is a great country. But first, ask permission. We are a sovereign land with boundaries, laws, and millions of people waiting in line to become a citizen legally. So, why should you get to cut in line because you know how to sneak inside our borders? As in my own home, I would welcome anyone who is looking for a better life. Just have the respect for me and my land to ask to come in the front door and don't try to climb in the back window.

Yet, I am racist because I ask immigrants to come to my home legally and properly. How so? Really. Explain it to me.

I never told anyone to shoot anyone. I didn't say shoot immigrants. I said there might be a warning, "Beware: TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT." A tongue-in-cheek remark as stated previously. However, the key word in the sentence is "trespassers." Is the word "trespasser" assigned to one race or nationality? Did I miss something? If so, should I stop saying "forgive me my trespasses as I forgive those who trespass against me" because the word trespass is a racist term? Hmmm.

Now, to address the funniest part of this rambled response.

This paragraph cracks me up:

I strongly feel you are a threat to our homeland security and should be closely monitored for fear of what you may do with the anger you seem to hold on to. Please seek immediate help from a professional mental heath counselor for your own good ant the welfare of others you may come in contact with.

I am a threat to homeland security. WOW!!!!!!! From the desk in my home on a free website where I have less that 10 people a day looking at my blogs, my call for a tightening of our borders is a threat to homeland security. I hold on to so much anger...I might...just...WRITE ANOTHER BLOG!!!! Oh, my GOD!!! HELP US ALL!!!! Somebody please take the keyboard from my hands. Someone call the FBI, CIA, DOD, NSA, IRS, ASPCA, NCAA, RSVP, and anyone else that can help. I just might voice an opinion that my mom, dad, and a few friends may read.

Who in the heck gave me the right to free speech? Who would let someone of a conservative mindset that wants secure borders and people to come to my home LEGALLY and with PERMISSION use a right granted by the US Constitution (and guarenteed, sometimes in blood, by the US Soldier)???

Harold, grow up. You demonstrate what is wrong with the country and what is wrong with liberals. You freak out over something your ignorance took out of context while missing the entire point. You're the type of person whining about your privacy when the government is tapping in to terrorist phone calls. The only way its a violation of your privacy is if you are on the line with a terrorist. You're the kind that wants rights and protections and an easy lifestyle for terrorists in our prisons. The people who would kill you and your children and grandchildren are the ones you cry about and scream about if they get a splinter, yet you hit the mute button or turn the channel and forget it when a US citizen has their head sawed off by the cousin of the jerk we have in jail in Gitmo.

Enjoy your freedoms. Enjoy your country while you have it. Lord knows, if liberals ran the country...well, the US would be run from Kabul by now....

Five Years Ago...

Five years ago today, I was sitting at the controls of WWJD Eagle 91.7 FM, Alice Lloyd's college radio station. My friend Aaron Goff and I were hosting a morning show and just having a good time trying to entertain. At a little past 9 am, we get word that the World Trade Centers are on fire.

We start to watch the news. We see plane number 2 hit. We see the split screen where a plane has hit the Pentagon, but at first we thought it was just a different view of what is going on. The whole time we are so confused. What is going on? Then, the tower fell. Then the second. I knew that we were at war.

I was sad. I was confused. I was pissed off. I was running in circles wanting to help. What could I do? Drive to DC or NYC and just pitch in? Here is the greatest tragedy in American history and I am powerless to help.

There is rarely a day that goes by that I don't think about that day and the anger, rage, sadness, and fear I felt. Being a child of the 1980's, the movie Red Dawn kept playing in my head. I knew that if it came to that, I would definitely be a Wolverine. But, I was stuck in Kentucky powerless to do anything. All we could do was pray, talk to each other, and be scared, sad, and mad.

As did most Americans, we did what we could. There was no way I could drive my car 1,000 miles to NYC to help. Most likely, I would be sent home and be kicked out of school. So, I did, and continue to do so, what I can do to make sure that 9-11 isn't just a bump in American history.

Every year I watch a 9-11 Documentary and every year I will help spread the word and spread the reminder of what we lost that day. Sadly, more and more people are tuning out their initial response to 9-11. People are forgetting. They are ignoring. They are letting 9-11-01 drift into historic obscurity.

We cannot forget. There are still empty chairs at dinner. There are holes in family trees. There are broken hearts still healing. There is a gaping hole in the middle of Manhattan that resembles the hole in America. We cannot forget the true meaning of what happened 5 years ago. Remembering is the best way to prevent it from happening again.

People ask for a national day of rememberance, a day of no work and no school. I think that is stupid.

9-11 should be the one day where attendance is 100%. As a nation, we should simply show up. Go to work. Go to school. Do what you normally should be doing. Attendance has to be 100%. The reason 9-11 happened was a bunch of renegade animals who have corrupted a peaceful religion decided to interfere with America and our daily lives. They wanted to scare us into our homes and scare us from going through our normal routine. So, in response to that, we should, as one nation UNDER GOD, show up. And, in one voice, tell those scum that we will not surrender, we will now cower to their cowardly attacks. We are Americans, dammit, and there's not a damn thing you can do to stop us.

Happy Birthday America!!!

Happy Fourth of July!

Every single country and every single person on this Earth has the 4th of July on their calendars, but only those 300+ million of us AMERICANS celebrate this day. Why? Because in 1776, a group of men decided that this country wanted to be free, to be independent. We celebrate the birth of our great nation the day that John Hancock put his large signature on the Declaration of Independence, a letter that proclaimed that tyranny and unfair taxation and unfair governing from 3,000 miles away would no longer be tolerated on the other side of the Atlantic.

Since then, the beauty and grandness of the freedom of America has been tested, detested, and has faced some terrible threats. From the vicious red coats to the battles between our own people to the Axis powers to the terrorists of today, and every threat in between, there has been one force standing between our freedoms and anarchy and chaos. That one, strong, true, diligent force is our Armed Forces.

Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard all stand in the way of fear, invasion, and the tyranny we deposed in 1776. Men and women from all walks of life have taken part in that line of defense for you and me, far too many have given the ultimate sacrifice for us. It is unfortunate that so many lives must be lost to save so many others, but that is the nature of the beast. When you have something so precious as freedom, others want it or want to destroy it. It is our men and women in uniform that fight, get injured, and possibly die to protect that freedom for us.

Today, as you grill and mope about the work you have to do this shortened week, consider this. There are thousands of men and women who do not get today off. They are fighting for a free Afghanistan and Iraq so we can be safer at home. With Bin Laden on the run, Al Zarqawi dead, and Sadam Hussein in jail, our world is much safer. There are men and women suffering and sacrificing for you and me while we eat grilled hotdogs and burn our thumbs on sparklers.

Today, remember those who dont get a short work week. Just because you arent at work, dont think for one second someone else isnt picking up the slack. If you get a chance, thank a soldier. Thank them for serving. Thank them for signing up to be a part of something so selfless as to be willing to die for your freedom.

That is a major part of what today is all about. Its about enjoying our freedom and what makes America great. It is also about remembering why and how we got our freedom in the first place.

God bless the United States. God bless our soldiers.

Teddy Roosevelt

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat."
-Teddy Roosevelt

The Nerve of people

Throughout the country today, millions of Hispanics and their supporters came together with the intent to disrupt our country. They wanted to prove the impact of illegal immigrants on our economy. They wanted to prove how invaluable undocumented workers are to our economy. They wanted to show this by doing a nationwide boycott and work walk-out.

As with every liberal idea and grand scheme, it is nothing but propaganda and the forcible dumbing-down of our society.

First, how can we see the true impact that illegal immigrants have on our economy when 55-75% of the protestors are CITIZENS and DOCUMENTED EMPLOYEES? How does this work? As with all other liberal ideas, this one is full of garbage. We have people shutting down stores, gas stations, and thousands of other businesses to show the impact of illegal immigration on our economy. The argument does not fit the purpose. Its like arguing that chocolate is the best ice cream flavor and drinking Coke to prove it.

That isnt even the biggest problem I have. The biggest problem I have with this is the fact that we have thousands to millions of illegal immigrants using OUR right to peaceably assemble and OUR right to free speech. No where in our constitution have we EVER guaranteed illegal immigrants the same rights as legal citizens. The essence of the term immediately devoids them of many rights. The name says it all: ILLEGAL immigrants, as in breaking the law and cheating and lying and stealing. Yes, crossing into the US without proper documentation and working without proper documentation is ILLEGAL, and ILLEGAL activities are not to be encouraged. NOT EVEN WITH AMNESTY!!!!

Picture your home, the place youve worked your whole life to build, maintain, and protect. Picture a stranger breaking into your home. He eats your food. Drinks milk straight from your carton. Calls home on your phone long distance. He is unwelcome and you want him out. As you try to call the police to have him removed from your home, hundreds of criminals arrive on your front lawn to protest. They call you racist. They demand that that man, who broke into your home, became a drain on your life and wallet, now gets the same rights that you, your wife, and your kids get under that roof. They demand that he gets to use your computer. They demand that you translate everything in your home so he can read it. They demand you start a savings account so he can go to school. They demand you give him a car before your kids can get one. The second you pause to think about it, you are called a racist, heartless, scum, communist, selfish, spoiled, and a million other names. You wouldnt stand for it. So why stand for it when your home is no longer a house but your country?

Why let these illegals take your tax dollars? Why allow the government to spend money that should go to paying for your tax-paying children to go to college on illegal immigrant health care? Its time America get back together and reunite for the greater good. Its time to reunite and protect our borders, national security, and national economy.

Its not racist to protect our borders. Its not racist to force LAW BREAKERS to follow the law or get out. I dont care if it is a white man, black man, middle eastern man, or other ethnicity. I do not care. If you are here illegally, get out. Now.

I have had a thought for a while that I want everyone to consider. To hell with the nay-sayers and race-baitors. I say we keep tabs on where these illegal immigrant rallies/protests are going on and send 5,000 NSA agents there to round up all the illegals. If you are a documented American worker, you may be released as long as you have ID. The rest will be processed and deported. I like the idea. If you are illegal and brash enough to come out in force, well, I believe your just dumb enough to be arrested and deported for being here illegally.

You know, being from West Virginia-Virginia for most of my life, I know of an old way of thought. You trespass on my land, I will give you a warning. But bewareTRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT.

(This Blog earned a nasty response, to which I responded in a blog in September of this year.)

Liberal Activist Judges....

In case you haven't heard, liberalism hit a new low this week. A convicted and confessed child rapist was given the softest sentence possible.

Raping a girl repeatedly over a 4 year period will earn the rapist only 60 days in jail. SIXTY. TWO MONTHS. As with all liberal whining, Judge Edward Cashman said he does not believe in punishment. He believes in rehab. He believes that this scum is a low risk repeat offender.

How in the hell does that figure? If it was a one time event in a drugged out stupor, I could see, but not agree with, the conclusion. BUT! HE IS A REPEAT OFFENDER. He raped that little girl many, many times over the course of 4 years. To me, Repeat involves doing a crime more than once. Thus, he repeatedly raped this girl. There is the real possibility that this scumbag is serving one day per rape. How sad is that?

This is sick and extremely sad. This is where the modern day liberal is headed. Oh, yeah, there's outrage now, but Cashman will be thought of as a pioneer in 5-10 years. Liberals love the rights of the criminals. Screw the victims.

Who is the criminal? Remember this name. If you ever see or meet this scum, hock a loogie in his face. This scum, I refuse to call him a man because I call myself a man and men do not rape little girls, is named Mark Hulett, age 34, of Williston, Vt. If I ever came across this scum, I might be sent to prison longer for assaulting him (because I would kick the ever loving shit out of him) than he is going for RAPE.

(Editorial note: This story made it to Bill O'Reilly and the "No Spin Zone," and within a few days, the barrage of phone calls and emails to the Governor's office in Vermont was too much. The ridiculous sentence was changed. )

A New Era in Sports...I Hope!

A new era of sports is merging upon us, and I am loving it.

Ron Artest, Marcus Vick, Latrell Spreewell, and Terrell Owens are all examples of what has been wrong with sports for many years. The spoiled, ME-first attitude of the athlete has been nourished and, at times, encouraged by fans, coaches, agents, and other people of impact. However, the limits of what a star can get away with are becoming more clear and the world will be better for it.

First, Ron Artest. Yeah, he is kind of like Dennis Rodman, who I support and would like to see back with the Bulls. However, I never saw Rodman punch a 16-year-old kid after getting hit with a plastic cup. In no way was Artest in danger. No one would be in danger from that cup. A security guard could have removed the out of line fan. Instead, Artest punches THE WRONG FAN, starting the ugliest fiasco in the history of American sports. In spite of all that, Larry Bird and the Indiana Pacers stood by and supported Artest and welcomed him back with open arms in 2005-06. Then, Artest stabs them in the heart by openly asking for a trade. So, the Pacers did what was painful, but right, and deactivated Artest. They may pay a price financially as well as in victories, but I think the Indiana, and all NBA fans, should applaud the Pacers for their strength and backbone and moral code.

Second, a young man I cheered and booed at times this year. I love my Hokies, but now I, and all Hokie fans, have a big black eye thanks to this spoiled brat. Marcus Vick has had a tough act to follow being in his brother's shadow. However, there comes a time when Michael can no longer baby his little brother and Marcus must grow up. Marcus refused to grow up. He flipped-off WVU fans, elbowed a coach, choked when the season was on the line versus Miami, and then stomped on the leg of Elvis Dumerville in the Gator Bowl. All this caused me to doubt his character and leadership ability, things required to be a successful quarterback. His off-the-field exploits further diminish his attractiveness to fans and NFL scouts alike. And, after Virginia Tech, like Indiana with Artest, gave Marcus one more shot, he stabbed them in the heart by not growing up. So, they, too, had to cut their losses and replace a great talent. With this kind of baggage, the negatives become longer-term than the successes, so Frank Beamer and Virginia Tech did what was hard, but right, and cut him loose.

Now to Spree. Mr. "I-have-a-family-to-feed," turned down $21 million because he couldn't feed his family on that salary. What is he feeding them? Rare 50 lb. lobster and filet mingon everynight? There are millions of minimum wage burger flippers that find ways to feed their family on $150 a week. This guy turned down $150 per, the Minnesota Timberwolves let their problems and a major contributor to their success go and the rest of the league has stayed away. I applaud the NBA execs for not picking this guy up. He has serious issues and does not deserve the privilege to play in the NBA.

Last but not least, for this blog, is TO. TO got exactly what he deserves. I just feel bad for the town of Philadelphia and Donovan McNabb. McNabb has put up with all sorts of crap and still stands strong and leads. He plays through pain. He tried to maintain a civil lockerroom. However, TO would not allow that. He had to get his dollars. He had to get his, Eagles be damned. So, Andy Reid and the Eagles said, "Adios!" and TO was no mo. TO will play again, but his value is extremely diminished because of his selfish, team-disrupting attitude and behavior.

I applaud these teams and leagues for beginning to turn the tides. Keep turning the tides against these spoiled, selfish athletes. They are by far some of the most overpaid people on the planet, but I won't complain as long as they give 100% on the field to their team. And is it THAT hard to ask these athletes to ACT like they are civilized human beings? Part of the job of pro athlete is the fact you are a role model. It comes with the territory. Its an occupational hazard. If you don't want to be a role model, get a job in an office building somewhere.

So, in being a role model, could you please, as an athlete, set a decent example for the kids who love, adore, and emulate you?

Happy New Year 2006!

Happy New Year!

Just an idea...this goes out to my women friends. Please tell two of your friends, and tell them to tell two more and so on.

Stop letting yourselves be cheapened.

Stop letting yourself be convinced that you have to look slutty and or act slutty to get a man's attention or to get somewhere in life. Stop encouraging my fellow menfolk to think from their zippers by giving in to their childish demands.

Stop being so forgiving of men for cheating. Cheating is the ultimate hurt and insult. Forgiving is just slightly different than encouraging. Forgiving a cheater gives them them the power to cheat more often because they know they have you around their finger.

Stop acting like the women on TV. Women, like us males, have so few positive role models. The only time a woman should let a man into her bed on the first date is if that first date didn't come until after they fell in love and were married.

I am not trying to be holier-than-thou. I am not trying to insult or berate or come down on. It is merely an idea I propose. I did, in fact, lose a friend of three years over a difference in ideas over the I know how overreacted people can get. But I hope you can take this in the spirit in which it is intended.

Happy New Year! May God bless your 2006.

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
