From my Colonel ............................................ ;-)

A Gun in the House

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important
than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

As John Steinbeck once said:

1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll
just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter
recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do
you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on
his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle.'

8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

But wait, there's more!

I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I

She said 'Well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!'

To which I said, of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets!'

She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your

My reply was, 'No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire
either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.'

To which I'll add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like
having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez OKs ID Theft For Illegals Who Just “Want To Work”

Posted By Dave Gorak On 29 July 2008 @ 8:42 In General | Comments Disabled

The [1] Democratic congressman from Chicago, who has been using his office of trust to preach to “xenophobic and anti-immigrant” Americans that illegals are people “who [2] clean our toilets, make our beds, watch our children, pick our produce,” is now on record as approving of them stealing our Social Security cards as long as they’re used only to gain employment, [[3] Politics led to Postville raid, Democrat alleges, by Tony Leys, Des Moines Register, July 27, 2008]

Gutierrez said federal authorities filed unfairly tough criminal charges against the workers. He said most of the workers were charged with aggravated criminal identity theft, which means they allegedly stole someone’s Social Security number with the intent to gain something, such as a credit card.

“Well, we haven’t heard testimony here that anybody did anything with Social Security cards other than going to work,” he said.

Memo to “The Honorable” Rep. Gutierrez: Here, allow me to draw you a picture using the same [4] writing tools that you and many of your House colleagues use to mark up legislation aimed at advancing your amnesty agenda. And, please, try to stay with me on this, OK? When you use a legitimate Social Security card that has been stolen to [5] get a job that many [6] Americans used to do but for wages that allowed them to support their families, have you not “gained something”?

OK, so I'm looking at the back of my Social Security card ................. verbatim, it clearly states:

"This card belongs to the Social Security Administration and you must return it if we ask for it.

"If you find a card that isn't yours, please return it to:
Social Security Administration
P.O. Box 33008, Baltimore, MD 21290-3008

"Improper use of this card or number by anyone is punishable by fine, imprisonment or both." {Emphasis added - DM}


From my Colonel ............................................ ;-)


The Democrats are my shepherd; I shall not want.
They leadeth me to stilled factories and abandoned farms.
They restoreth my doubt about the future.
They anointeth my wages with taxes and inflation;
My expenses runneth over my income.
Surely poverty and hard living shall follow
And I shall work on a rented farm forever.

Five thousand years ago, Moses said,
'Pack up your camel, pick up your shovel,
move your ass, and I will lead you to the promised land'.

Five thousand years later, Franklin Delano Roosevelt said,
'Lay down your shovel, sit on your ass, light up a camel,
this is the promised land'.

This year, the Democrats will take your shovel, sell your camel , kick your
ass and tell you they gave away the promised land.

I'm glad I am an American. I'm glad I am
free. Sometimes though, I wish I were a dog,
And all Democrats were trees..

From my Colonel .............................................

I hadn't realized the power/non-accountability of the Fed - for 45+ years, whenever I heard of them, *I* thought they were an entity of the federal government - this info DEFINITELY justifies a letter to our "representatives" {read: "CongressCritters"} - it's past time to ABOLISH the Fed AND the IRS!!

WebPage here.

Just in case you didn't know, the Federal Reserve is a private company of bankers with twelve branch banks that confiscate our money and they have been doing this for almost a hundred years,--- this time! They are not part of the United States Government. Yet today they collect hundreds of billions of dollars from American taxpayers every year.

Pay attention now, you're about to read about the biggest and most successful scam in History.

"Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who writes its laws" --- Meyer Rothschild

A Little History Lesson

Alexander Hamilton

It was Alexander Hamilton who lobbied for the first private Federal Bank, and in 1789 Congress chartered the bank.

Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was adamantly opposed to the idea of a privately owned federal bank and said " I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies".

In 1811, under President James Madison, Vice President George Clinton broke the tied vote in congress to cast the bankers out refusing to renew the charter for the bankers. Unfortunately it was President Madison who proposed a second United States privately owned Central bank and it came into existence in 1816

Andrew Jackson

However, in 1836 President Jackson, overriding Congress, closed it commenting, "The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it." (we now have another one like it)

Andrew Jackson also said, when speaking to the bankers: "You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God I will rout you out."

When speaking to his closest friend, Martin Van Buren, Jackson said, "The bank, is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!" (and he did)

The first two Federal Reserve Systems lasted about 20 years each and we are now almost a hundred years into the third one.

Woodrow Wilson

The year is now 1913, the year after Woodrow Wilson was elected president of the United States. Prior to his election he needed financial support to pay for his campaign, so he reluctantly agreed, that if elected, he would sign the Federal Reserve Act, in return for that financial support.

In December 1913 while many members of Congress were home for Christmas, the Federal Reserve Act was rammed through Congress and was later signed by President Wilson. At a later date, Wilson admitted with remorse, when referring to the Fed."I have unwittingly ruined my country".

Now Comes the Income Tax! !!!

We didn't have nor did we need an income tax until we got the bankers back. The income tax was only needed to pay interest to the bankers for our money that they loan to our government. Yes, you read that right, the Fed, mostly on paper and computer, creates money or pays the treasury a small printing fee for currency, and then loans this money to our government. Our taxes pay them interest on this loan that cost the FEDS virtually nothing to make, what a sweetheart of a deal they have going for them.

As of March 6, 2006, the national debt stands at 8.2 trillion dollars. The American taxpayers have paid the FED banking system $173,875,979,369.66 in interest on that debt in just five short months, from October, 2005, through February, 2006. No con artist or group of con artists in history has ever perpetrated a scam that even approaches the scope of this one.

According to the two volume work by Bill Benson and Red Beckman , "The Law That Never Was" the 16th amendment, which created the IRS, was never properly ratified, not even by one state! These gentlemen traveled the then 48 states to verify that fact. So in a very real sense the income tax isn't legal, as many have proclaimed, but try not paying it and see how far you get before the Feds come after you and confiscate everything you own.


Henry Ford once said "It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning".

In the nearly 100 years of the existence of the Fed, it has NEVER been audited and they don't pay income tax on the billions of dollars they take from us.

According to Congressional record the U.S. Government can buy back the FED at any time for $450 million. That's about half the amount of money we pay them daily.

Do we have the most stupid and/or the most corrupt leaders in the world, or what? It seems their # 1 concern is getting re-elected, they seem to think nothing of shirking their responsibilities to the people who elected them to their powerful prestigous high paying jobs.

Congress likes the Fed because they can spend all they want with no restraints, they just put our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren into debt.

A Federal Reserve note is just what it looks like, it's just a piece of paper with no backing whatsoever. This is why Congress hates gold and silver backed money, it forces them to live within their means. Of course they also get other perks from the Fed. perks far too numerous to mention here.

Article 1, section 8, of the Constitution reads:
The Congress shall have the Power.....To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof,....
Nowhere in that document does it give Congress the authority to delegate this responsibility to anyone, much less a bunch of private bankers.

It may be that you were never a big fan of John F. Kennedy, but you may see him in a different light after you learn how he took on the FEDS. He had the foresight to see what a bad deal had been struck in the creation of the Federal Reserve. He also had the courage to do something about it.which unfortunately, may have cost him his life.

On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy signed a Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110. This order virtually stripped the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Government at interest. President Kennedy declared the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. This order gave the Treasury Department the authority to issue silver certificates against any silver in the treasury. This executive order still stands today. In less than five months after signing that executive order President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

The United States Notes (silver certificates) he had issued were taken out of circulation immediately. Federal Reserve Notes continued to serve as the legal currency of this nation. It is estimated that 99% of all U.S. paper currency circulating in 1999 are Federal Reserve Notes.

Lincoln also took on the bankers and that brave bold step may also have cost him his life.

During the Civil War (from 1861-1865), President Lincoln needed money to finance the War for the North. The Bankers were going to charge him 24% to 36% interest. Lincoln was horrified and greatly distressed, and he would not think of plunging his beloved country into a debt that the country would find impossible to pay back.

So Lincoln advised Congress to pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender Treasury notes to pay for the War effort. Lincoln recognized the great benefits of this issue. At one point he wrote: "... (we) gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had - their own paper money to pay their own debts..."

The Treasury notes were printed with green ink on the back, so the people called them "Greenbacks". Lincoln had printed 400 million dollars worth of Greenbacks (the exact amount being $449,338,902), money that he delegated to be created, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the War. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. He printed it, paid it to the soldiers, to the U.S. Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for the war.

Lincoln was assassinated shortly after the war and Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted, in its place, the National Banking Act. The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest-bearing. The Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes.

Follow The Money!!!

When you follow the money you find there was no-one in the world who had a better reason to kill these two Presidents than the bankers. It seems inconceivable that anyone could still think there was no conspiracy in the assassination of JFK, especially when you consider the many people that were murdered or had suspicious deaths and who were associated in some way with Kennedy's assassination.

Is this proof?


Is this strong circumstantial evidence?


Concern Without Action Is A Waste Of Time!! The Federal Reserve, United Nations, Council of Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, the Illuminati, the Bilderbergers and other elites of the hidden government are leading us into The New World Order and they are leading us fast. You are not going to like it when we get all the way there, and we are over half way there now.

Only we can save this Republic!!!

This article was written by my friend Norman Chenoweth. He graciously consented to allow me to edit it down to a more appropriate size for making into a web page. He also allowed me to add a few words of my own throughout the article. I can only hope that everyone I send this web page to will read it and share it with others, the American people deserve to know these facts about the FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM.

Norman has written some other articles that I hope you will take the time to read as they are about things every American should know but sadly most don't. He also has a wonderful free gift for you, be sure to check to see what it is, you won't be sorry, believe me I know!

So, Jesse Jackson wants to neuter Obama ......................................

{not that that hasn't already occurred - sorry, but "metrosexual men" is just another oxymoron to me ................... :-( } and is wailing & gnashing his teeth that the microphone was 'hot' ................... I just CAN'T work up a lot of sympathy for Jesse - I've always viewed mikes much as I view firearms - firearms are ALWAYS loaded, microphones are ALWAYS ON ............................ ;-)

OK, so Obama is going to sponsor a NASCAR "something" ....................................

doesn't that kind of indicate a bit of tone deafness/insensitivity, since Americans who live in 'the real world' are struggling daily with HOW to pay for gasoline? I am NOT advocating stopping events such as NASCAR - I'm just saying that, with all the struggles us 'regular, Joe SixPack' Americans are facing, and with Obama's most recent 'stands' {of course, with the understanding that they can change at any moment} on energy issues, AND given that his appeal to NASCAR fans might be less-than-anticipated, couldn't he have found a more sensible option to appeal to blue-collar folks? I've NO IDEA how much gas will be consumed in the course of the race, but I'd bet that it's sufficient to provide at least a couple of families with enough gas for them to cover their needs for a year ................................

Yes, yes, I know it's not 'gasoline' per se, but you get my drift ........................ ;-)

Lainy, like you I LIKE turkey for holiday meals .............................

UPDATE: Turns out, per the A/C shop, the "suction hose" on the underside of the vehicle has holes in it ................... the shop will do the replacing for ~ $300.00-400.00 - the hose itself, they want to charge over $250.00 for - M. found some on eBay for ~ $40.00 ...................

I don't prepare it, since my spousal unit isn't too much for any fowl - unless it's skin-on, salt-soaked, batter-dipped {repeatedly} deep fried chicken - he's eating more chicken, as both of us have had rises in our cholesterol levels - but if it's HIS choice, it's a rare steak, baked potato with butter, MAYBE a salad ........................ ;-)

But, ya gotta admit, that young Tom I'm holding IS ........................ unusual .......................... ;-)

And M. is trying to get our friend's mother's A/C working - after several hours of the two of them taking things apart, sending me for 'stuff', etc., it still wasn't holding an R134 charge, so our friend's mother has to take it for diagnostics - M. DID find a complete replacement 'set' {from the firewall forward in the engine compartment} on eBay for $299.00 ............................

I'm sure most of you have heard of lap dogs, lap cats ..............................

allow me to introduce you to ......................... Lap Turkeys ......................... friends of ours have a couple of young Toms who seem to believe that they were created to be "snuggle turkeys" ........................ yes, that's me holding him ............................... ;-)

Lap Turkey

And to satisfy all y'all's overweening curiosity ........................ my spousal unit is the gentleman directly in front of the vehicle - our friend who owns the young Tom I'm holding is on the passenger side ...................... ;-)

In honor of OUR 232nd birthday .....................................

On Independence day, may the fourth be with you.

The Star Spangled Banner, like you've never heard it

Added 03 Jul 2008 - I don't recall this {never been much of a baseball fan} but thought it well-worthwhile

Also, for those of you so inclined, 1776 will air on TCM @ 2300 {I'm presuming eastern time zone} on 4 July 2008 .............

It's a masterpiece, I say!
They will cheer every word, every letter

I wish I felt that way

I believe I can put it better
Now then attend, as friend to friend
Our Declaration Committee
For us I see immortality

In Philadelphia City

A farmer, a lawyer, and a sage
A bit gouty in the leg
You know it's quite bizarre
To think that here we are
Playing midwives to an egg

We're waiting for the chirp, chirp, chirp
Of an eaglet being born
We're waiting for the chirp, chirp, chirp
On this humid Monday morning in this
Congressional incubator

God knows the temperature's hot enough
To hatch a stone, let alone an egg

We're waiting for the scratch, scratch, scratch
Of that tiny little fellow
Waiting for the egg to hatch
On this humid Monday morning in this
Congressional incubator

God knows the temperature's hot enough
To hatch a stone

But will it hatch an egg?

The eagle's going to crack the shell
Of the egg that England laid

Yes, so we can tell, tell, tell
On this humid Monday morning in this
Congressional incubator

And as just as Tom here has written
Though the shell may belong to Great Britain,
The eagle inside belongs to us!

And as just as Tom here has written
We say to hell with Great Britain!
The eagle inside belongs to us!

From my Colonel ............................................ ;-)

A conservative believes that our inalienable rights do not include housing, healthcare or Hummers.

A conservative believes that our inalienable rights DO include the pursuit of happiness. That means it is guaranteed to no one.

A conservative believes that those who pursue happiness and find it have a right to not be penalized for that success.

A conservative believes that there are no protections against the hardship and heartache of failure. We believe that the right to fail is just as important as the chance to succeed and that those who do fail learn essential lessons that will help them the next time around.

A conservative believes in personal responsibility and accepts the consequences for his or her words and actions.

A conservative believes that real compassion can't be found in any government program.

A conservative believes that each of us has a duty to take care of our neighbors. It was private individuals, companies and congregations that sent water, blankets and supplies to New Orleans far before the government ever set foot there.

A conservative believes that family is the cornerstone of our society and that people have a right to manage their family any way they see fit, so long as it's not criminal. We are far more attuned to our family's needs than some faceless, soulless government program.

A conservative believes that people have a right to worship the God of their understanding. We also believe that people do not have the right to jam their version of God (or no God) down anybody else's throat.

A conservative believes that people go to the movies to be entertained and to church to be preached to, not the other way around.

A conservative believes that debt creates unhealthy relationships. Everyone, from the government on down, should live within their means and strive for financial independence.

A conservative believes that a child's education is the responsibility of the parents, not the government.

A conservative believes that every human being has a right to life, from conception to death.

A conservative believes in the smallest government you can get without anarchy. We know our history: The larger a government gets, the harder it will fall.
