We Don’t Belong to the Government, the Government Belongs to US!

we-dont-belong-to-the-government-the-government-belongs-to-us

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time.

We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together.

Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone
party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag.

We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.”
You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 did it again in 2012 and are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid again and again. It’s time you folks Sobered Up!

Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom.

This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014 we are going to begin to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in 2014 we’re going to the polls by the millions.

This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to “We the People” and “We the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.

So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the

“Grey-Haired Brigade.”

Amen and God Bless America

ISIL IS NOT ISLAMIC? -OR- IS ISIS Really ISIL or ISISn’t It?

Strong reaction to Obama statement: ‘ISIL is not Islamic’

By Ashley Killough, CNN

(CNN) — President Barack Obama was trying to make a broader point when he uttered “ISIL is not Islamic,” but the four-word phrase could still come back to haunt him.

Critics on Twitter quickly fired off on the President for making the assertion, with many noting that ISIL in fact stands for the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.” (CNN refers to the group by the acronym ISIS in its news reports. The group recently started calling itself the Islamic State).

In full context, here’s what Obama said in his prime-time speech Wednesday night:

“ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state; it was formerly al Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government nor by the people it subjugates.”

“ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple, and it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

Glenn Beck Knows Why Obama Prefers ‘ISIL’ to ‘ISIS’

During his debut as moderator of Meet the Press last Sunday, Chuck Todd attempted to explain why President Barack Obama prefers to term “ISIL” over “ISIS” to describe the terrorist network that the U.S. may or may not be at war with currently.

In Todd’s view, calling the group “ISIL,” or the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, avoids the direct reference to Syria in “ISIS.” And since the Obama administration had mostly tried to keep the idea of fighting the group in Syria off the table, they wanted to keep that specific reminder out of the group’s name. With the president’s speech to the nation last week, that inclination may have shifted, but either way, at this point the administration is committed to the term “ISIL.”

But Todd is not the only commentator trying to figure out why Obama says “ISIL” while the media tends to prefer “ISIS.” Fox News’ Harris Faulkner recently said she believed the president is “tipping his hat” to the group by using an “L” instead of an “S.” “Levant is a bigger territory,” she said on Outnumbered. “That’s why they want to embrace that name and it includes many, many more countries than just Syria.”

That theory is closer to the one Glenn Beck espoused in his “daily briefing” with TheBlaze staff Monday, though, unsurprisingly, his ideas are a bit more convoluted.

Beck noticed that technically, “the Levant” includes Israel, along with Lebanon and Jordan. “We actually should be flipped,” he said. “I should be saying it’s ‘ISIL’ and the president should saying it’s ‘ISIS,’” because in Beck’s view, the president wants to minimize the threat while he believes including the Levant better represents the group’s true aims. So, does that mean Beck actually agrees with Obama on this one? Not quite.

Beck accepts that the group should be called “ISIL” and not “ISIS,” but he thinks it should be called “ISIL” as a “warning,” which is apparently not what President Obama is doing.

When Obama uses the term “ISIL,” Beck sees it as a “slap in the face” to Israel. For the president to say that it’s “ISIL” and not “ISIS” and not at the same time “double down” on Israel and warn that the group is “taking over the Holy Land” is somehow disingenuous. “There is no more Israel if it’s ISIL,” Beck declared, ominously.

“So if I’m ISIS, and I hear the president say ‘you’re really ISIL’ and ‘I’m kind of wishy-washy on that whole Israel thing,’ you’re on my side,” Beck concluded. “For him to say ‘ISIL’ is sending a message overseas to them: ‘I know who you are. I’m not doing anything, I’m not doing anything.’”

Get all that? Beck agrees that the group, which calls itself simply “the Islamic State,” should be called “ISIL,” but not for the reasons Obama is using. And somehow, escalating missile strikes against the group in Iraq and possibly now Syria is the same as “not doing anything” because he uses an “L” instead of an “S.”

The truest explanation for why President Obama says “ISIL” instead of “ISIS”? He and his team started using it at one point and have stuck with it long enough that it would be awkward (and somehow perceived as weak) if he started saying “ISIS” now.

It’s kind of like how Obama insisted on using the “Affordable Care Act” before finally giving in and accepting that everyone was going to call it “Obamacare” no matter what he did. And we’ve all seen how well that turned out.

America’s Point of No Return…November 2014

1454873_513239662140166_7105046639957626549_n

All the eloquent speeches from the Anointed One will not improve our economy nor, is it in any way shape or form, going to create jobs. We now have a President that is so full of himself that America is suffering another financial setback that all the kings men and all the kings czars cannot put back together again.

The good news is that America is waking up and come November we will put real American Patriots in the seats now filled with Corrupted and stagnant career politicians who have forgotten the Power of We the People. These are people who have become absolutely Corrupted and morally challenged in their day-to-day lives.

We the People have vowed to take back our Country from these so-called Progressive Socialists who have no place here in our Republic. We will not, as a Free People, ever surrender to Socialism, Marxism, nor Communism and the sooner the Progressive Elitists get that through their thick skulls, the better off and safer this world will be.

Mr. President, do not underestimate what the American People will fight for. If you do, you will find yourself on the losing side of history. Americans are now busy resetting the course of American History and yes we are even going to correct our school books so that we have an inclusive, complete, and accurate documenting of American History and not some super altered Progressive evolution of our minds. The truth is out there now and Americans are flocking to it in record numbers to reinforce our resolve to end once and for all the Progressive Movement in the United States of America.

We are united like never before and we will not go silently into the night Mr. President.

My Enlightening Encounter at the County Fair

2010839-portrait-of-the-elderly-woman-on-the-park-bench

Last Year I went to the County Fair with my oldest son and his family to enjoy a day watching the grand children’s wide eyed excitement of the wonders to be seen at a County Fair.  After a few hours of walking the grounds and taking in the sights and sounds of this wonderful event I decided to take a break on a park bench where I sat next to a senior lady who seemed to have the same idea as me.

What happened next will remain etched in my mind for the rest of my days.

Shortly after taking a seat at the opposite end of the park bench this this soft spoken lady turned to me and said, I enjoy just sitting here people watching these days but I can’t help but notice very few are smiling as they walk by.  She then asked if I have noticed the same thing to which I replied, yes I do, I see it also.  She then continued on to say it is as if they know something very bad is about to happen and they are not quite sure what. Again I replied, I see it too.

After a short pause she turned to me and said the America you and I once knew is lost and a terrible time is about to befall us all. 

These people walking by can feel it but you and I have lived long enough to know what is happening.  She then asked, are you a Christian?  I replied that I was and that I too know what is about to happen.  She smiled softly and went on to say it is too late to turn back the hands of time. 

The American people have fallen for a great deception and walk about refusing to believe that a great evil has taken hold of our country.

Somewhat taken back by this whole conversation I could not help but ask what she was planning to do about it.  She simply replied that she had thought about becoming a ‘Prepper’ but soon realized that in today’s age of technology there was no longer any way to escape the government scrutiny of our lives. 

She then went on to tell me a short story about an experience she had using her lap top. She stated that her lap top had a built in camera on it that she never used and how one day when she stepped away from her lap top for a short while she returned to find a picture of herself on the screen that was taken while working on her lap top.  Her computer had been locked and a message read that she had downloaded sensitive materials and that her computer has been seized until she contacted the government agency at the number provided. As it turned out it was a hacker who froze her computer and demanded a  payment of $250.00 to release her computer.  She contacted the manufacturer of her computer and they were able to unfreeze her computer for a small charge after which she immediately taped over the camera lens on her computer. 

What concerned her the most about this episode was the thought that if a hacker could do this then imagine what our government could do.

The Lord’s return is upon us my friend she said with a smile of relief and I pray that you and your loved ones are ready.  I said that we were and wished the same upon her and her family.  She replied that they were and yet grieved for all those who have been so deceived by a society that has turned their backs on God for those earthly pleasures that will soon be gone.  With that she rose up, turned and bid me farewell.  

There was so much more to this conversation that I would have filled up pages upon pages with her insights. I walked away from that conversation knowing that we are not alone in what we are all feeling these days.

531143349772576880_ZK4TpuzX_c

It is not often in this life when we cross paths with like minded individuals but for me this encounter was Heaven sent and I will remember this conversation until that Glorious day when Jesus returns  in all of His Glory.

America’s Soul…by AFVet

EGAL-and-FLAG-640x640America has a Soul,

did you know that ?

By AFVet

She has a Soul because of US.

americas-soul-title

You know,….We the People of the United States of America.

The ones that love Her.

The Bible tells us that the soul never dies and will be reunited with the body for eternity.

The body will die but the Soul remains.

The body of America ebbs and flows due to circumstances sometimes beyond our control but Her Soul has been established throughout the world as the greatest Country that has ever existed.

prayer-blog-artPoliticians come and go and are capable of influencing the direction on a temporary basis.

Our Founders set up a system that we can use to prevent a monarchy, either by a president or our representatives.

It is up to us to use it effectively, and that takes some degree of knowledge.

The accumulation of said knowledge takes some work.

Sad that many people do not feel it necessary to indulge in the effort to educate themselves as to who the potential candidates may be or should be.

On the eve of the 2014 elections, the Soul of America is once again being tested.

I am an optimist.

I think that the Soul of America is alive and well and stronger than ever due to the awakening of the people of this Country that have finally realized the condition this Country is in thanks to:

Patriots Unite !

This magnificent Country is being threatened from internal forces that we…

CAN STOP.

It is up to US.

Are YOU up to the challenge ?

Buck up me Hearty’s…..AMERICA RISING

Pirate-ship-and-sunset

Buck up me Hearty’s………

By AFVet

Sounds like a line from a pirate movie right ?

Well, I think it applies to the Patriots, the Christians, and the Conservatives that are being overwhelmed by the tactics that the left is using to destroy our attempts to take this Country back from 100 years of plotting, manipulating, and nefarious procedures to eradicate anyone that would try to re-inject the Principles that this Country was founded upon into the society.

Voter I.D. ? Not needed.

Voter fraud, never happened, so they say.

Let one of US stand up and voice our opinion and we are ridiculed by the press and the imbeciles that have the press in their pocket.

Racism is the battle cry of the left against the right.

It is a shallow statement, and they know it.

But they are louder than we are, and they don’t have to make sense as their followers are mostly just drones and sycophants

The theme of Voting American will always reside in the hearts and the minds of true Patriots.

The recent response to it’s potential demise inspired this commentary.

Our mission is not complete.

We cannot give up now my Patriotic Friends.

We are too close to at least a small victory to begin to remove the cancer that Washington has inflicted on this Country.

We are more informed now than we have been in many years because we love this Nation and want to see Her survive.

We want to see Her once again be the Shining City on the Hill.

shining city on a hill

The call to arms will come in November,

will you respond ?

I guess the left would call us pirates, so be it !

T’was Apathy that Killed the Dream

mcnaughton-wake-up-america-620x412

We have watched as this President and the former Democratically Controlled  Congress passed legislation behind closed doors and against the will of the people.

 

We have watched as this President has spent us into oblivion and beyond .

 

We have watched as this President encouraged Racial Tensions and blatant Racism in Our Country undoing so much of the gains that were made over the years.

 

We have watched as this President traveled abroad and apologized to our enemies for America.

 

We have watched as this President began to disarm America systematically all the while knowing the Chinese and Russians were smiling in disbelief at his ignorance.

 

This President may choose to bow down before our enemies if he wishes too, but We the People bow down to no one,  especially him!

 

I could go on and on and fill up pages with all the things this President, this Administration and the former Democratically  Controlled  Congress have done to and against the American people but I think you get the point of my message here today.

 

WE HAVE WATCHED AND YET WE HAVE DONE…

NOTHING!
