Red Skelton's Pledge

Fred's Quote of the Week

“It’s more and more apparent to me every day that the average 20 year
old who is serving us in Iraq knows more about national security than
many of the 20 year veterans in Congress.”

A Sign that Property Value is Going Down

Three houses down, a car with a "Ron Paul for President 08" bumper sticker.

I do not mind having hard working Mexicans as neighbors, but a 'Paulbot' on the same street, ugh.

Folks, get a candidate who has a grasp of reality, like Fred Thompson.

Unknown Soldier

By Scott Ott.

In Arlington National Cemetery, just a few miles from here, you can
visit the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, where the unidentified body of a
brave soul rests and receives daily visitors on pilgrimage to honor his
sacrifice. On the side of the sarcophagus you can read this inscription:






The Tomb of the Unknowns symbolizes a nation from which millions
have arisen to fight for freedom around the world at the cost of their
own comfort, safety and even breath. These are folks who know there’s
something more precious than this fleeting life. With eternity in their
hearts, and pictures of loved ones in their wallets, they thrust
themselves into the breach where evil had threatened to break out and
overwhelm. They showed themselves willing to go the distance, even to
go to a nameless grave, in order to preserve something with blood that
can’t be bought with money, or negotiated with subtle speech.

9/11 statement

Six years have passed since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon. Today is a day to remember those who lost
their lives at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists who despise our
values and way of life, as well as those men and women who have made
the ultimate sacrifice helping their fellow citizens that tragic day,
and defending freedom in the years that have followed.

must never forget that America has shed more blood defending freedom
here and abroad than all the other countries in the world combined. And
it was no different on 9/11. Before the twin towers fell, before the
smoke had cleared from the Pentagon, before the brave men and women of
Flight 93 had made a stand over Shanksville, Penn., Americans were
fighting back.

America’s heritage of defending freedom has
fallen to us. It is a great trust that our generation willingly accepts
and must uphold. But the best way we can do that – while honoring the
tragic loss of our fellow citizens six years ago today, and in all of
the years since – is to make sure our nation continues to stand for
freedom, remains strong and united in the face of threats, and secure.

Word: from a Marine

The message is this: Trust Freedom. Remember, tyrants never learn. The
restriction of Freedom is the limitation of human choice, and choice is
the fulcrum-point of the creative process in human affairs. As earth's
choicemaker, it is our human identity on nature's beautiful blue planet
and the natural premise of man's free institutions, environments, and
respectful relations with one another. Made in the image of our
Creator, free men choose, create, and progress - or die.

men should not fear the moon-god-crowd oppressor nor choose any of his
ways. Recall with a confident Job and a victorious David, "Know ye not
that you are in league with the stones of the field?"
