On 9/11 the passengers and crew of flight 93 armed with the knowledge of what had taken place with early hijacked planes that day, took a stand and fought back. In doing so Flight 93 crashed into the Pennsylvania country side, forever ingraining this small group as patriots of the highest order, people who where willing to die to protect others, to protect there country. This flight, these people will be remembered always, we many not know there names, but we will always remember there actions.

Now in an effort to build a shrine to these people, that government which on that day in September these most wonderful people died to protect is going to steal the land to build there shrine. You can call it what you will, but when anyone takes something that doesn’t belong to them, it’s stealing. Once again people have shown there need to glorify the dead without any consideration for the living.
If you really want to honor these people then do so by respecting the living for the dead have been cared for, now leave them in peace.

Live and let Live

Could someone explain to me just what the hell is going on in this world of ours. What is it with everyone wanting to control each others lives. What? You haven’t screwed your own life up enough, now you want to screw with the rest of the people around you. Damn people, live and let live, worry about your own life and you’ll have plenty to do. Let other’s live as you want to live, FREE.

Sad but True

I am very disappointed in the California state legal system, I was pretty sure that the United States Constitution insured free and equal rights to every citizen of this country, I guess that’s everyone the majority accepts. Once again religious and personal freedoms are only free if you have enough votes.

Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh now here is a seriously demented piece of work. This man would bitch about anything and everything the Dems do. This man is so Republican when he sleeps he doesn’t snore, he brays. So here’s a bit of a challenge for you Rush, come get some you old jackass, your parties ass was kicked in the election of 2008 for President wait and see what’s done to your party in 2010. The RNC has to be the most miss managed, under achieving mass of miss fits to ever have joined a political party, and all you have is a group of followers with the inability to think for themselves, and I would bet hard earned money that most of them never had the balls to put on a uniform and serve. How about you Limbaugh, what branch of the service did you serve in?

America, born in of battle and sustained by blood. This is how much we love you.

Gaints Among You

One by one through the ages we have dawned the uniform
We have fought for that which we love
Our homes
Our family
Our country

In each conflict we have held our heads high
We have fought with honor
We have fought with bravery
And some have died

Some have been blessed
They are the lucky ones
The ones who return unharmed
Unlike there brothers in arms

Some have taken wounds
Lost limbs
Lost self
And lost hope

Others continue to fight in there minds
That place that is all confining

I tell you from the heart there are giants among you
Yet they prefer to hide
For like all brothers they knowThe true heroes, they never came home.

Do you believe in God?

I was asked a rather personal question today, “ Do I believe in God”, and do you know what? I don’t think I do. I was raised in a Lutheran church, took the classes and the whole nine yards, and over the course of my life I have been in most every church there is, not all, but most. Guess what I found?

I found some preachers dressed up real pretty and some in old suits, I found churches that looked like they came right out of the renaissance and some old buildings with leaking roofs. I found people who were right and righteous on Sunday or Saturday whichever day they attended and on Monday they forgot what it was they preacher had said the day before. But the one thing that was most common in all of them was the preacher plea for money. Religion is the biggest business in the world. In any country religion is the biggest business there is bar none, I defy you to prove that this is wrong.

I had aunts and uncles that were preachers and there was never a time that I can remember that they weren’t having some type of function to raise money for something the church needed. Yet in all my years I have never seen a church have a function to help a person pay there mortgage, make a car payment, or buy them clothes. Oh they have used clothes you can have and some are nice, but you try explaining that to a teenager in high school. I want to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.
If you have faith in God, ok it’s your life. But you would be better served to have faith in yourself cause if there is a God he’s been on vacation for quit some time now. I have read the summed up Bible from cover to cover, a couple of times and let me save you the time because it can be into three words. “Do What’s Right” if you do that each and every day then, if there is a heaven you got no problems.
