Great Read -

This should be taught in schools. Americans have no clue as to how our Tax system works and how small businesses are effected.

Yes = $100 Million

It isn't looking good. $100 Million speaks loudly to the Senator of Louisiana.

Welcome to the 11th Hour

America is on the brink of Socialism and our fate lies in the hands of two Democrat Senators. Most Americans assume that tomorrow will come and be fine. Nothing really will change and that this Country is the greatest place and magically will continue to be. That is the problem. Stupid breeds stupid. We need a cleansing of this mentality. Taxing the rich and giving to the poor won't last, won't work and has never worked.

Hard work, drive, determination and a competitive nature is what has made America great. Not the notion that everything should be fair. What is fair? Who determines what fair is?

I have had enough - done - put a fork in me! Today as I read all this crap about Healthcare reform - the $100 million payoff to the Louisiana Senator I decided that I might stroke. Then I thought...Why do we take this? Why do I continue to pay taxes? What if everyone that feels this way went into Human Resources at work on Monday and filed tax exempt. We just stopped funding this. That is our RIGHT! The Gov't exists because we pay for it and as a taxpaying, hard working American I am sick of it!

Audit me - NO ONE in the Obama cabinet pays taxes, Rangel from NY doesn't pay - so why do we? The entire Tea Party movement should become - STOP PAYING TAXES PARTY! Senators and Congressman only have the money we pay to spend!! So let's stop paying!!

Why bring Terror back to NY?

Wonderful insight by John Yoo former Bush Administration Attorney. John Yoo sheds light on issues that must be considered. This article also makes one ponder the true motives behind the Obama administration's decision to try the 5 terrorists in US Criminal Court. Is this truly a trial for the terrorists or a trial to persecute Bush, Cheney, & the CIA?

Thank You to all the Veterans!

What a wonderfully patriotic - yet, sad day.

My paternal grandfather joined the Army at 18 and began a journey that took him far away from the farm he grew up on in rural Alabama. He was a handsome young man with a head full of black curls and a crooked smile.
Shortly after basic training and the the attack on Pearl Harbor he was sent overseas. He didn't talk much about his experiences in WWII - just a comment here and there. It wasn't until his funeral that I heard this amazing story.

In a dark fox hole somewhere in the Philippines, my grandfather sat watch with his then best friend. Their job was to peer above the fox hole and follow enemy movement. In the dreary confines of this fox hole they endured something I will never experience. They decided to take turns peering above the fox hole. It was my grandfather's turn, but his best friend told him to sit back down. You see, my grandfather wasn't a tall man and had to jump up or step up on something to see over. As his friend made a joke about his height he stood and took my grandfather's shift, stuck his head above the fox hole, and almost instantly he was shot in the head. He died in my grandfather's arms.

Today my thoughts and prayers are for that man and so many others. I don't know his name but I pray his soul is at peace. He sacrificed everything and if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here. God Bless all the men, women and their families.
