Since the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, I’m hearing and reading a lot of people asking why this happened, what could have prevented it, do we need more gun control , why did God allow this to happen, why do bad things happen to good people. I’m reminded of what the Bible says. God gave dominion over the Earth to MAN and gave MAN free will. God didn’t allow this, MAN did.
God is just as grieved over this as we are. It breaks His heart to see His creation suffering so much. He doesn’t force His will on mankind, but offers the solution. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM, SHALL NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. God sent His son to teach us the right way to live, and to die for our sins and MAKE US EACH A NEW CREATURE LIKE HIM.
The people who don’t accept this solution far outnumber those who do. They affect the world we all live in. Strait is the gate and narrow is THE WAY and FEW there be who find it. The solution: Be one of the few and help others find the strait WAY.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
Chief Justice John Roberts swearing in new Supreme Court Judge Sotomayor, whose hand is on a Bible, “SO HELP ME, GOD.”
“So help me, God,” is heard in court rooms all over America every day and is spoken by judges of the Supreme Court in government buildings, and it is not unlawful. This began in the earliest days of America’s existence. Some people have refused to swear on the Bible, and they have not been forced to. Supporters of “Separation of Church and State” say that proves our founders wanted separation. This is an incorrect assessment. “Congress shall make NO law respecting an establishment of religion…” Therefore, they shall not force anyone to swear on a Bible. “…OR prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” requiring government to allow religion and that includes in government buildings, in government functions, on public property, even in schools. Government shall not FORCE TO nor PROHIBIT FROM. That’s quite different from “separaton of church and state.”
Before the Supreme Court of the United States (or any other court in this country) makes any further judgments on the issue of “separation of church and state”, they should be required to read the statements of the very FIRST CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, a man totally involved in the founding of this country, Chief Justice John Jay. He said on September 9, 1777:
“We should always remember, that the many remarkable and unexpected means and events by which our wants have been supplied, and our enemies repelled or restrained, are such strong and striking proofs of the interposition of HEAVEN, that our having been delivered from the threatened bondage of Britain, ought, like the emancipation of the Jews from Egyptian servitude, be forever ascribed to its TRUE CAUSE, and isntead of swelling our breasts with arrogant ideas of our power and importance, kindle in them a flame of gratitude and piety, which may consume all remains of vice and irreligion. BLESSED BE GOD.”
This man recognized, as did the other Founding Fathers, that this country was founded precisely because God willed it so, and interceded in all manners necessary to insure its survival and success. If God founded the country, how can anyone legitimately support “separation of church and state.” The Constitution that our founding fathers wrote and ratified after experiencing the many miracles and interventions of God, included the express guarantee of FREEDOM OF RELIGION NOT FROM RELIGION. These men guaranteed that government shall not impose an official restriction or requirement on religion, which is exactly what government is doing today. The Founding Fathers shouted God’s intervention from the platforms available to them, as well as in their writings, on their monuments and in their speeches. Their very lives were affirmations of God’s hand at work. Common sense demands the acknowledgement that these men DID NOT write law contrary to their own beliefs, experiences and statements.
For those interested in the truth, read the original documents and writings of the original Founding Fathers. See how many of them were actually reverends and pastors and preachers. Note that church services were routinely held in the halls of Congress, that they called for days of prayer, and that Samuel Adams established the first national day of Thanksgiving to God on Thursday, December 18, 1777, which was devoted to thanking God for his protection, provision, forgiveness and blessings, and had nothing to do with dinner.
Many books have been filled with the stories, details, facts and experiences of the Founding Fathers, the Patriot armies, the colonists, and the churches, attesting to God’s inextricable presence and actions to secure the birth, success and longevity of this nation. It defies logic to suggest that these same people then wrote a Constitution prohibiting religion in public places, prohibiting any government entity to be involved in any way with religion or government prohibiting citizens’ expression of religion at government functions or on government property. And as for religion in public schools, the first schools were started and held in the towns’ churches.
Preachers could preach about the government and its officials, and express a Biblical view of the issues, before 1954, when Senator Lyndon Baines Johnson, running for re-election, faced a tough challenger, Dudley Dougherty, who was supported by a tax-exempt organization, The Committee for Constitutional Government. This organization produced material which advocated limiting of the President’s treaty-making authority and more importantly, supported Johnson’s opponent. When Johnson learned of this, he found a way to silence them, resulting in Section 501 (C) (3) of the IRS code, which now limits what churches can say as tax-exempt entities.
One of the most important freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution is freedom OF religion, prohibiting the government from making ANY laws governing our exercise and expression of religion. This was stolen from us in 1954. WE’VE BEEN ROBBED AND SAT STILL FOR IT. Silence has not served us well. We should have marched in the streets and swarmed our representatives’ offices until this egregious law was repealed.
Churches have always made substantial differences in our liberties and the fair and just treatment of our people, an admirable fact until 1954. Americans will never forget the contributions, tireless work and fearless efforts of a Baptist preacher named Rev. Martin Luther King, who is credited with achieving civil rights for African-Americans, which has spread to all minorities. Christians fought slavery in the early decades of the newly born United States of America. Today, Christians are fighting abortion, which kills untold numbers of babies lawfully everyday. As black slaves were not counted as full human beings, but only as 3/5 of a human, unborn babies in the womb are not counted as human beings. The 1954 IRS Sec. (C) (3) ban on political speech of churches must be repealed as unConstitutional, and the myth of separation of church and state refuted and abandoned.
For those who are happy with the current loss of religious freedom, consider that governments are run by people, many of which love their position of power, fame, privilege and money. If the government is allowed to steal one of our freedoms, it can and will steal another. Any freedom that is seen as a threat to the power and money of its representatives, can and will be taken away. Lyndon Johnson is one example. Someday, they will steal a freedom that is important to you. Freedom of speech? Freedom to assemble? Freedom to travel outside of the U.S.? The Right to Privacy? Freedom to own private property? Which one of your most prized freedoms is next?
We have lost too much already. It’s going to be an uphill battle, but we must regain every right, protection and freedom guaranteed us in the Constitution. Fight Congress, the President, his czars, the EPA, the Federal Reserve, the FCC, whomever is usurping our rights. Don’t put it off. Fight for ALL of the guaranteed freedoms, even religion, because yours might be next, and probably will.
REFUTE THE “SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE” MYTH. REVERSE SUPREME COURT RULINGS LIMITING OUR RELIGIOUS EXPRESSIONS AND PRACTICES. REPEAL THE IRS CODE SECTION (C) (3) OF 1954.
THERE IS NO MORE TIME TO DO NOTHING.
On another note: This nation was clearly founded on Judeo/Christian principles. There is NO doubt. It’s well documented, no matter what anyone says. Barack Obama has no right to declare that this nation is not a Christian nation. It is and always has been. He talked about the contributions of the Muslim religion in the founding of this country and that’s a flat out lie. There is no evidence of that. It may be his design to separate this country from its Judeo/Christian heritage and elevate Muslims, but millions of Americans will not sit quietly for that. Not again. We’ve learned our lesson about sitting quietly by while our freedoms, rights and heritage are stolen from us. NEVER AGAIN.
See, NO BIBLE! This is the second swearing in at the White House in the map room. His first swearing in at the inauguration was botched slightly.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
A reader commented on the previous post about the Cash for Clunkers a Gov’t Worm Hole. The point was worth researching and discussing, so here it is.
The comment stated that Beck was off base with his conclusions about the agreement that must be provided before a “Cash for Clunkers” participant could continue with the transaction online at the cars.gov web site.
“These disclaimers on gov’t computers are necessary due to the Wiretapping Act. It is illegal to monitor the activities of a user without their consent. To do the necessary monitoring (if your site is defaced you want to try to figure out who did it, y’know?) you must allow everyone an opportunity to leave without entering. That’s all. We’ve had a similar disclaimer here for 15 years.”
Everyone can agree that any computer must be protected from hostile activity and employ a program to identify the perpetrator. Disclaimers must make consumers aware and give them the opportunity to leave the web site without giving up their Fourth Amendment Rights. No problem here.
The cars.gov web site goes far beyond what is necessary in the following paragraph, which consumers are obliged to agree to if they participate in the Cash for Clunkers program:
“This application provides access to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the U.S. Government. Any or all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT, and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign. “
This agreement usurps your Fourth Amendment Right and waives your rights under the Wiretap Act, Privacy Act, etc.
Privacy: Statutory Protections
From Internet Law Treatise
With the passage of the USA PATRIOT Act, the Homeland Security Act and other laws focused on national security, Congress has been active in changing the legal landscape for access to real-time and stored communications. Despite these amendments, detailed below, the legal regime for obtaining wiretaps and stored communications remains ambiguous.
Privacy: Searching and Seizing Computers
From Internet Law Treatise
Reasonable Expectation of Privacy
Accessing information stored in a computer ordinarily will implicate the owner’s reasonable expectation of privacy in the information. See United States v. Barth, 26 F. Supp. 2d 929, 936-37 (W.D. Tex. 1998) (finding reasonable expectation of privacy in files stored on hard drive of personal computer); United States v. Reyes, 922 F. Supp. 818, 832-33 (S.D.N.Y. 1996) (finding reasonable expectation of privacy in data stored in a pager); United States v. Lynch, 908 F. Supp. 284, 287 (D.V.I. 1995) (same); United States v. Chan, 830 F. Supp. 531, 535 (N.D. Cal. 1993) (same); United States v. Blas, 1990 WL 265179, at *21 (E.D. Wis. Dec. 4, 1990) (“[A]n individual has the same expectation of privacy in a pager, computer, or other electronic data storage and retrieval device as in a closed container.”). See also United States v. Long, 64 M.J. 57 (CAAF 2006) (finding REOP in emails defendant sent from her office computer and in emails stored on government server); Quon v. Arch Wireless, 445 F.Supp.2d 1116 (C.D. Cal. 2006) (gov’t employee had REOP in text messages sent through his city-owned pagers).
The Tenth Circuit has cautioned that “[b]ecause computers can hold so much information touching on many different areas of a person’s life, there is greater potential for the ‘intermingling’ of documents and a consequent invasion of privacy when police execute a search for evidence on a computer.” United States v. Walser, 275 F.3d 981, 986 (10th Cir. 2001). But see United States v. Gorshkov, 2001 WL 1024026, at *2 (W.D. Wash. May 23, 2001) (holding that defendant did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in use of a private computer network when undercover federal agents looked over his shoulder, when he did not own the computer he used, and when he knew that the system administrator could monitor his activities).
In the offline world, the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized legitimate privacy interest in confidential letters. United States v. Jacobsen, 466 U.S. 109, 114, 104 S.Ct. 1652, 1657 (1984) (“Letters and other sealed packages are in the general class of effects in which the public at large has a legitimate expectation of privacy.”). See also Ortega v. O’Connor, 146 F.3d 1149, 1163 (9th Cir. 1998) (under circumstances, employee had legitimate expectation of privacy from employer).
The contents of telephone communications are fully protected by the Fourth Amendment. Katz v. United States, 389 U.S. 347, 353-354 (1967). The Government must satisfy stringent procedural requirements, discussed below, before it can acquire the contents of communications. Berger v. New York, 388 U.S. 41, 63-64 (1967) (“[I]t is not asking too much that officers be required to comply with the basic command of the Fourth Amendment before the innermost secrets of one’s home or office are invaded. Few threats to liberty exist which are greater than that posed by the use of eavesdropping devices.”).
The Privacy Act
The Privacy Act regulates the “‘collection, maintenance, use, and dissemination of information’” about individuals by federal agencies. Doe v. Chao, 540 U.S. 614, 618 (2004) (quoting Privacy Act of 1974 § 2(a)(5), 88 Stat. 1896). It “authorizes civil suits by individuals . . . whose Privacy Act rights are infringed,” Sussman v. U.S. Marshals Serv., 494 F.3d 1106, 1123 (D.C. Cir. 2007), and provides for criminal penalties against federal officials who willfully disclose a record in violation of the Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552a(i)(1).
Title III does not preempt state statutes that are more protective of privacy. “Congress intended that the states be allowed to enact more restrictive laws designed to protect the right of privacy.” People v. Conklin. 12 Cal.3d 259, 271 (1974); see also Roberts v. Americable Intern. Inc., 883 F.Supp. 499, 503, fn. 6 (E.D.Cal. 1995); United States v. Curreri, 388 F.Supp. 607, 613 (D.Md. 1974); Bishop v. State, 526 S.E.2d 917, 920 (Ga.Ct.App. 1999) ; People v. Pascarella, 415 N.E.2d 1285, 1287 (Ill.App.Ct. 1981).
The Wiretap Act, the U.S. Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, were all dealing with wiretapping and eavesdropping needed to combat terrorism and to facilitate criminal investigations. They required reasonable suspicion and warrants from judges.
Trading a clunker in for a new car hardly designates citizens as criminals or terrorists and does not generate reasonable suspicion of crime or terrorism. Our Fourth Amendment Rights should not be compromised or stolen.
I don’t believe Beck was off-base in his assumptions. Citizens should refuse to accept this disclaimer and realize that buying a car on the taxpayers’ dime isn’t worth forfeiting Fourth Amendment Rights. Our founding fathers fought to gain our freedoms and we should never throw them away, especially for a car that will only last a few years. Freedoms last forever, unless you throw them out with the clunkers.
The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the Bill of Rights
Search and Seizure
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers,
and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated; and no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

With all the talk of what’s broken in America, it’s time to get to the root of the problem. Our government is broken. Our health care system is NOT broken. It’s just so expensive that many can’t afford it,especially if faced with something of catastrophic magnitude. We need to deal with the cost of health care and keep the best system and care in the world.
There are many reasons why people may not be able to afford parts of their care. Some have no jobs. Some have low-paying jobs. Some experience catastrophic illness or accident. Some change jobs and their insurance doesn’t cover them in the interim. Hospitals charge exorbitant prices for everything used during a stay. Prescription drugs cost way too much.
Let’s deal directly with these issues and not nationalize our health care, putting it in the hands of a group of power-hungry elites who only see you as a dollar sign – a taxpayer. These people don’t have the same view of your life plans as you do. They see a dream for one world government with extraordinary people at the top running everything, experimenting with ideas, all the while enjoying the lifestyle of the rich and famous.
Where do you fit in? You work hard and pay the bills that support their crazy ideas. You’re the subject of their experiments in one-world everything, environmentalism, utopia-chasing and personal wealth building (theirs, not yours).
America has been successful all these years precisely because it championed and protected freedom for every man. It took a while to perfect that concept, but Americans never stopped working towards that goal. And that is the key. Americans truly covet and value freedom for every man. They will never stop working to achieve it.
Now comes along, and gets elected, a group of morons who are hell-bent on taking our individual freedoms away, one by one, in short order. Obama is moving as quickly as possible, before the sleeping giant awakens and throws him and his thugs out.
Is the term, “thugs”, fair? Pick any Obama czar or cabinet appointee you choose and research them. You will find that “thugs” is an accurate description. Obama doesn’t seem to know any honest people.
Have you wondered if the health care reform bill will take away our freedoms? Find out for yourself.
Don’t be discouraged when you try to read it and give up. Very few have been successful at reading this monstrosity. Even lawyers have trouble with it. Here’s a sample guide that may help. This was emailed around the country and warrants our attention.
From a letter to Sen. Bayh from a practicing physician, Stephen Fraser, MD. Whether this letter is authentic or not doesn’t matter. If you compare the list, page by page, line by line, to the Health Care Bill posted on the government web site, you can see if they are accurate or not.
Take the first one in the letter. Page 22: Mandates that the government will audit the books of all employers that self insure. This violates the Constitutional Right to Privacy, individual liberty and freedom and the right to pursue happiness. If you don’t like IRS audits, you won’t like these, either!
Here’s the letter:
Subject: An Indianapolis Doctor’s Letter to Sen. Bayh about the Health Care Bill
Here is a letter I sent to Senator Bayh. Feel free to copy it and send it around to our other representatives.
July 23, 2009
As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the healthcare
bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked
by the brazenness of the government’s proposed involvement in the
patient physician relationship. The very idea that the government
will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not
helpful in designing a healthcare system that works for all. Every
physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our healthcare
system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through
congress will be a disaster if passed. I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow citizens.

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.
Furthermore, If you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on the country and destroys the doctor/patient relationship, I will do everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next
Stephen E Fraser MD
Pay special attention to the last few which deal with “end of life” orders. How can we do this to our parents and grandparents?! The greatest generation, who built the America we grew up in, who sacrificed, worked hard, defended freedom so we could live happy and free and be prosperous, will now be told by the government when, where and how they will face the end of their life!
NOT ON MY WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s the current government that is broken, not the health care system. We must get back to the form of government that our founding fathers worked out and implemented for the good of each of us. It begins with ‘WE THE PEOPLE” AND GUARANTEES THAT WE GOVERN OURSELVES. We are not to be governed by officials. They are supposed to work for us. Currently, they don’t. They decide how we must obey them and their wacky ideas.

I’M NOT ASKING FOR MUCH!
Whether or not Obama is a U.S. citizen, I’m surprised at the people who don’t care to be sure of it. This is a basic Constitutional protection for U.S. citizens. It prevents our enemies from planting someone in the highest office in the land and protects U.S. from those who don’t have American beliefs from becoming our ruler. If we allow anyone to usurp the office of the President and don’t even care if he is eligible, then it’s over. Nothing else will make a difference.
I applaud those who were willing to suffer ridicule to make sure that the Constitution is upheld. This is just as important to our liberty as any of the amendments. Whether or not someone is eligible to be our president is just as important as any of the issues we are debating. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. We can debate it all.
We all should know by now that “proof” offered by Obama doesn’t necessarily close the case. He’s not known for being completely truthful when he wants something. Everyone knows how to “Photoshop” documents and Obama hired a technology czar. His campaign caused a lot of the controversy by giving two different hospitals as his birthplace. His grandmother complicated things by stating that he was born in Kenya and she was there.
Then Obama refused to release the long form and put this whole controversy to rest. Why not? It’s so simple. He could do it today and everyone would drop it. Blame him for the life of this controversy.
Those who say that the State of Hawaii has verified that he was born in Hawaii should read their statement again. All it says it that they have it. They don’t say anything about his citizenship or place of birth. In fact, they say they can’t comment on any of that. They can only give that information to Obama by law. According to Hawaiian law, he could have been born anywhere and his mother, upon her return, could have filed the information and received a document that certifies that he was born alive. That’s all if proves. They had to take the mother’s word for the specific information. If he was born in Hawaii, then the delivery doctor would sign the long form. He can release that today and stop all of this. Why not?
Newspaper birth announcements? Did Stanley Ann Dunham or her parents place them there to create a proper situation for a 17-year-old teenager who became pregnant by a 23 -ear-old Kenyan that she barely knew? Who knows? Obama won’t clear it up.
As for McCain’s staff looking into this, I regard that as little proof. He also thinks he knows enough about cap and trade to be in favor of it. I wrote him during the election and asked him to really research cap and trade because I was sure he’d be opposed to it, if he knew more about it. Nope. He remained in favor of it. So much for his ability to “look into” something.
The documents we have seen include a school record of Obama from Indonesia where he is listed as a Muslim son of Lolo Soetoro named Barry Soetoro. I find no record of Obama disputing this document.
I apologize to those who are aggravated by the controversy and want it to die. I do understand why they would feel this way. However, I can’t say that I “KNOW” Obama is eligible to be POTUS and that is a shame.
I wrote my Congressman and asked him this question, “Who certifies that a candidate is eligible to hold the office of President?” His reply to my letter avoided that question. So who does certify candidates are eligible? Anyone? Who certified Obama’s eligibility and on what documents? Can anyone say with certainty that Obama is eligible? I can’t. And I should know without a doubt according to the Constitution. I want to protect our Constitutional rights. Just show me the long form and I’ll be happy.
P.S. The Daily Kos admits that one of their frequent commenters forged a BC for Obama as a gag to show how easily it could be done. He was involved in the debate at that time over why Obama refused to release any BC. This forgery had an anomaly on the top near the center. It was a black mark. It looks like someone accidentally touched a black ink pen to it or there was a black spot on the scanner used. Immediately, a BC appeared on Obama’s web site bearing the same anomaly. Coincidence?

H.J. Resolution #5: Proposing an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Proposed to the 111th Congress on January 6, 2009 (just days before Obama was sworn in as President) by Democrat Jose Serrano of the 16th District of New York.
On February 9, 2009 this proposal was referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
If you’ve ever wondered how countries like Germany, Venezuela, Iran and Russia lose their democracies and come under the oppressive rule of a dictator, this is the method. No one is covering this story in the media. American citizens aren’t fighting this take-over move because they don’t know about it. In the meantime, Congress is passing more and more laws that limit our freedoms and make large numbers of society dependent on the government, so that they cannot afford to resist whatever the government does.
America is under attack by the radical left on every front and from every angle. Their intentions are just as serious as those of a country who would attack us with their military. The strategy to win includes overwhelming us with measures, so that we can’t focus on any, long enough to win the battle, and to stretch our resources too thin to be effective.
Those in defense of America’s freedoms must organize, divide the issues among subgroups and then take the actions requested by each subgroup.
One group could take up the H.J. 5 proposal and fight for all of us. When they notify the rest of us that we need to contact our officials, march in the streets, wear ribbons, sport bumper stickers, write blogs, send out emails, or whatever is needed, then we all should do it.
Another subgroup could take up the universal health care issue. Another group could attack the cap and trade issue. Every issue should have its own subgroup, researching the issue, investigating the principles (politicians supporting it, people and companies lobbying for it and standing to gain from it), following the money trail and the perks trail, uncovering backroom deals and corruption, exposing the truth and calling the rest of us to action.
We can and MUST get this done and do it immediately. The Tea Parties awakened the silent majority and are working to figure out how to protect America from the current onslaught. They need to come together and follow the plan above. Of course, that is not the only thing we need to do, but we must start this plan now before it’s too late.
People who have gifts, talents, expertise, special abilities for a particular area must volunteer to form a subgroup, head it up or at the very least, serve in one in the area of their expertise.
If you’re a lawyer, perhaps you could form a subgroup of lawyers who would take cases to the Supreme Court to strike down recent legislation, corrupt political behaviors, Obama’s actions, Obama’s take over of private businesses, Obama’s czar structure bypassing Congress, and the Democrat tactic of forcing votes on bills that no one has read or understands, etc.
Perhaps you are able to propose bills to accomplish the things listed above and get them passed with the help of a subgroup. You may be a talented administrator or public relations person who could co-ordinate the subgroups nationally. Others may be expert fund raisers to bring in the monetary support needed for this monumental endeavor.
Then, above all, we need to vet every volunteer and make certain that this effort is never co-opted by the enemies of freedom, nor infiltrated by the leftists to divide and conquer or cause dissension within. That is another subgroup that should be formed first.
Americans, we are now in the fight of our lives. Our very freedom is at stake. There are things in the 300 page amendment to the cap and trade bill that endangers our liberties and submits U.S. to the United Nations – another bunch of leftist crooks.
Please consider these ideas and do everything you can. Don’t wait. Your children deserve the same freedom you grew up with. We are the last bastion of individual liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. When that’s gone, it’s gone from the world.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
