Remember what is important...and why we fight for this place we call America..

Family..... The Mrs., kids and I are in upstate NY on one of the fingerlakes visiting family. Last night, we all gathered around a fire, toasted marshmellows, made banana boats, smores, laughed and just enjoyed being with each other. I looked up at the sky...it was amazing and felt tremendously blessed. I thought to myself...I'm tired of bashing my head against the proverbial wall of stupid government programs, supposed representatives, and those just seemingly bent of squishing this once great nation into some perverted socialist, lowest common denominator, nightmare. Maybe if I ignore it....it won't affect them. Hearing their laughter, seeing their smiling faces........whoa! Nothing like the Almighty tossing a hot ember on my bare foot to snap me out of the REMF mode.
There is no way I will let that happen! Years ago I served this wonderful country with some of the finest people on the planet. Today, our warriors continue to stand and fight whether they be in uniform, in front of a computer, making a tea party sign or merely doing a good deed for another. Though getting this country out of the mess it is in seems like a rather daunting task, it can be done. Time to hug the family and friends, roll up the sleeves and get back to work.

The U.S. is like no other country, it should not be modeled after some other country.We are unique, we love our freedom. Many want to change this, want to think for us, want to make us all the same....why? Why the heck do we all want to be the same? Freedom is about being different NOT the same. People in America have become helpless crybabies that believe they are entitled...what the heck happened? Why have we become so lazy? How do we reverse this seemingly infectious, weak minded attitude?

I'm the handsome one on the right.
