No more USSA. Bring Back the USA!

Each war is different, each war is the same

I have been trying hard to decide how to best pay tribute to all our troops, past and present who have served one nation. I joined the USMC a week after graduating from High School. It was my life long dream. I can’t really say when that dream began to grow inside me . It was just there one day and I worked hard to achieve it. You hear a lot all the time about the “boomers” and the “greatest generation!” I remember as a child “the War” was always talked about in this respectful and fearful voice. Sometimes I felt like “the war” was still going on somewhere and I suppose it was in many people’s minds either as PTSD, remembering the bread and food lines or working in the factories to build the planes and everything else needed for our “boys!” To this day my mother has to go to the store if the front row in her cabinet is empty or not full all the way across. I heard her tell her cousin recently, “she was the same way, whatever that meant, she remembered the rationing and all and she felt compelled top keep her cabinets completely full.”

When usually had a garden when I was a preteen. We grew almost all our vegetables and some fruit. Mom canned many things, made jams, jellies, preserves, etc. It was all delicious. IT also cut back the grocery bill for a family of eight considerably.It seemed to me everyone we knew had a garden. We also had Bantam chickens for eggs and for food. You haven’t seen anything until you see a Bantam hen defending her baby chicks or have been chases by a Banty rooster. They can be quite ferocious.

At our house we all knew not to ask Dad too many personal questions about the war. When John Wayne, Henry Fonda , or any one of those other great stars came on TV in a war movie, my dad always watched them almost reverently! We all knew we better be quiet and watch the movie too. He also loved that show, “Combat” that came on every week until the star got killed by a chopper because he forgot to duck during taping of an episode. Vic Marrow was a good actor. Dad always said real heros never talked about their medals and the war. So when I came home from school one day and told him about this kid at school talking about his dad’s medals, dad just said, that famous line, “heroes don’t talk about their medals. After my Dad died mom found Dad’s medals. She didn’t even know he had them. He never told her about them.

When I joined the USMC all my dad said was it was no game. The military owned me for the duration of my enlistment. No talking back or discussion, just do as you’re told. He was right! I wasn’t an outstanding Marine. I did my job. I tried to do it well. I had a great deal of pride in the Corps. My three brothers were in the Army at Ft. Bragg. One of my sister also joined the Corps and served at Quantico with me. When we all came home at the same time, it was a constant loud discussion over which was best, the Corps or the Army. We drove my Mom nuts. Naturally, my Dad got into the fray at times. I think all these boisterous encounters had a lot to do with my nephew Mike going into the Navy after the Twin Towers were bombed. One brother was an MP and later a local Deputy Sheriff. This started a law enforcement trend in the family. First with Mike and later, my own daughter.

We are not a rich family. I’d have to say we are middle class. We have some very bright people and some not so bright. I’ll leave this at that. We’re not special. I think the service side of us all comes from my mom and dad teaching us values, ethics, morals. We were taught, you work for everything. If you don’t earn it you don’t usually respect something. We were taught to respect adults and our elders, manners were insisted upon. Don’t lie, steal, oe cheat. No one can take away one’s dignity or self-respect; but, one could give them away by one’s misdeeds. We were taught about God. To respect those teachings in the Bible. We were taught about the freedoms we have here in America and to be grateful for them and protect them. If I hadn’t been taught these values as a child, I might not have taught them to my own kids. Any more it seems that the way I was brought up is gone for good. Many parents don’t tech kids anything but about alcohol, drugs, & what is “owed to one” from the guvment!!

Flying the Flag, parades and speeches are nice tributes to our troops now and the memories of the sacrifices of the fallen. But a greater tribute would be not to fail to protect what our troops defend with their lives every day or else the boomer generation will be remembered as the generation that allowed what the greatest generation died defending slip away. What a tragedy? What a sad tribute to our deceased veterans and those serving now. I don’t want to serve or do anything else for the USSA but I will defend with my life the USA until my dying breath.

So you want to honor our troops and our past Veterans; then, vote in November in a way to help restore the USA and let’s get rid of everything that symbolizes the USSA! Don’t try to pretend it never was, ,et history record its coming and passing so we can learn from our mistakes!! This is my Memorial day tribute to the troops and the memory of those gone. That I salute them every day and love and support the USA in every way I can. God Bless our troops. God Bless America!

Arlen Specter likens American voters to ‘cannibals’

Posted by devildog6771 on May 15, 2012


Arlen Specter AFL CIO 2009

From GLENN BECK.com comes an interesting report on Arlen Spector! Spector is crying over spilt milk. Does Spector realize the Constitution gives all Americans the right to vote for whomever we feel can do the job? The extremism Spector speaks of is a public out cry over entrenched elected officials who lost their way and forgot who put them in office and why we put them their. Accountability is not extremism. Accountability is the public taking back its responsibility to monitor the work of our elected officials. Had elected officials done their jobs as elected to perform, the tea Party and the “radicals” Spector speaks of would not have had any election influence.

I became one of those radicals Spector talks about after hearing an elected official say ,”often the public doesn’t know what is best for the nation. So it is my job to do the right thing! for the nation!” I was furious at the official’s pompous attitude. Perhaps this official did not inform his constituents as mine, Randy Forbes, does on a regular basis. Go rest on your laurels Arlen. Maybe after a while it will come to you why you are just another citizen like the rest of us clowns you look down on!

Arlen Specter likens American voters to ‘cannibals’

Tea Party, if you needed any more evidence that you’re on the right track look no further than the latest comments from Arlen Specter. The former Senator, who was booted after flip flopping between the parties, is now going after GOP voters for wanting to boot Orrin Hatch in Utah. He claimed that Dick Lugar has already been ‘cannibalized’, and that Orrin Hatch was next. “The cannibals are devouring senators,” he warned. Glenn, of course, said this shows the Tea Party is just holding their representatives to the fire.

“The Republicans are freaked out. No matter what you want to say the Tea Party is not invisible,” Glenn said.

For further information on Spector’s voting record while in office and his political views, check out these source:
The US Congress Database on Arlen Spector
The Washington Post Arlen Spector News
NY TIMES
Spector Switches Party H/T: The NY Times
WIKIPEDIA!

*A while back Spector Jumped Party lines and became a Democrat, openly, again!! Spector began his political career in Pennsylvania as a Democrat

So come on Arlen, don’t cry sour grapes. We are working within the “system” as you and elected officials have developed it. You guys all think you are invincible in Congress. We have warned Congress for some time that as elections come up, public memory would not be forgotten. We warned both parties to do their elected jobs, the ones they took an oath for or be booted out! We consider you all have had adequate warning. Let these words be further fore warning of where the people stand with regard to “all’ elected officials!” None are immune from public scrutiny!!
DO YOU ALL BELIEVE US NOW? Or will you all continue to use blinders and conduct business as usual which is no longer going to be acceptable to “We the People!” “Read and HEED!”
I Thank God for patriots like Glenn Beck and the Tea Party every day as should we all!!

Out of the mouth of a Babe! “How about cupcakes?”

Posted by devildog6771 on May 14, 2012


Sprinkles Cupcakes in New York

From Freedom by the Way comes another great post: How about Cupcakes?
As one who grew up reasonably slender and healthy; and, later gained an enormous amount of weight due to medication [size 12 to 20 in 6 months] and am still struggling to get rid of that damn “FAT” .. yeess there it is!! I’ve said it and I wasn’t swallowed up by a giant hole that appeared before me out of nowhere!! Amazing.

I don’t mind being called fat. I am! Heat in the winter, shade in the summer! Nor is it cruel to me, rather I am offended by all the efforts made on my behalf to place a label on me that makes me a more acceptable person! Actually the only major difference in the thin me and the heavier version is the size of my clothes. As a sexual assault survivor, self-esteem always took a lot of work.. All the rhetoric back and forth over what to call me instead of fat is a lot like being assaulted again. Listen up people, I have ears and eyes. Stop talking at me or about me. Hell, why not ask me what I like to be called.

I look at all this the same way I looked at “Affirmative Action.” While I understood the intent, I am still angry at what was taken from me, the knowledge that I earned every dollar I made and that no-one gave me anything. I earned every advancement and get this, I did it on my A$$ not my back! I apologize for my colorful language, this is a very intense topic for me.I spent over 23 years developing skills to get around male bias.

So don’t call me anything but my name. After all isn’t that who I really am?

Margaret Thatcher – The Iron Lady

Posted by devildog6771 on May 13, 2012

If you haven’t seen the new movie about Margaret Thatcher you don’t know what you’re missing. The acting was superb. The storyline was awesome and very moving. I have always admired Thatcher and used her as an example when I talk to idiots who feel women can’t handle leadership roles in nations. The movie takes an unusual perspective. It was nicely done and did justice to Mrs. Thatcher, probably the last British leader with any backbone now that those succeeding her let the country be over run by socialist and Muslim extremism! Never thought to see such an end for England. Hitler and many outside enemies tried to bring her to her knees without success. Now a bunch of immigrant  radicals have succeeded where even Hitler and Napoleon failed. multiculturalism has torn down nations that existed for centuries. How short-sighted people are!

 

It is absurd to go to another nation and expect that nation to welcome you with open arms and tear down the fabric of its culture to make one feel welcome. I like that old saying, “when in Rome do as the Romans!” I think there is much wisdom in that remark. The are jokes throughout the extremists worlds that Democracies are the easiest nations to assimilate or take over. One only has to use that nation’s own laws against itself. When that enemy comes to a Democracy, he/she already knows our laws better than those of us born and raised here or in those free nations. Where is it written that free nations must be stupid and self-destructive in their efforts to assimilate immigrants? Personally, if an immigrant doesn’t like it here then he/she can go back home and work to fix their “Country” and leave our the hell alone!

 

Well I have veered off topic. Sorry! Lol. Guess I hit a nerve. Back to the movie. If you get a chance go see, “Iron Lady.” You won’t regret it. Right now it is #1 on able. Awesome! After, actress, Meryl Streep is excellent as Mrs. Thatcher. I found myself having to remember that she wasn’t the real, Thatcher!

New Zeal Blog, A true Friend of America and freedom.

One of my favorite blogs is New Zeal by Trevor Loudon. Trevor does a better job of defending our rights than most American bloggers, seriously. He is a true ally. and friend of America!

Read his post below about the communist infiltration in America. If a blogger from the “Down Under” can see what is happening in America, what does that say about us pampered, lazy, couch potatoes here in America.  I have been often surprised by the blogs posts by Australian bloggers and Bloggers from New Zealand. We have friends folks. Lets hang on to them as long as we can.

You’ve Been Treading on U.S. Mr. President….. Thanks for the Wake Up Call

From Voting American comes this great post. When you’re done reading his post go to his site and check out the rest of his posts. He is prolific and an excellent writer.

Mr. President,

Because you control the Media and what Americans read and hear on the news it seems you are under the illusion of being popular and unbeatable come November. You Sir, have an awakening coming that will dwarf your wake up call from the 2010 Mid-term Elections.

You see Mr. President We the People are fully awake and We Have Not Yet Begun to fight. Conservative Talk Radio Hosts and Conservative Bloggers have been busy these past 31/2 years alerting the American People to your real agenda all the while exposing your deceptions and lies.

Mr. President, America will not go down without a fight and this is one fight you and your Marxist Comrades cannot win.

It’s About Freedom Mr. President and when it comes to Freedom the American People have a Rich History of Victory !

Treason in the Congrress and government at all levels un-checked by our own security Agencies and people! Why, Washington must be shaking in his grave with diigust

Posted by devildog6771 on May 9, 2012


I found this ridiculous and very ignorant site,Democratic underground.com tonight by accident.They really blast the Tea Party. It is obvious they are clueless about the real purpose of the Tea Party. They don’t seem to have done much research either. It’s all very hateful and demeaning! I am so sick of the left’s assault on anyone who loves the Constitution. What really galls me to no end is how we fought the rise of communism all over the world and let them get a sleazy toe hold in America. We were so sure real Americans would never go for communism!It never occurred to any of us that the enemy of freedom would work their way into America through our schools and our kids!Will this “entitlement society” running things turn America into the U.S.S. ,instead of the U.S.A.?

In the related articles below.e are links to stories where a audience listener confronted Romney about whether or not he felt Obama ought to be tried for treason. Today Romney slinked past the issue by saying “no?” Will this  be our new fls]g?
