My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the tag “American Pride”


Hey, just wanted to let everyone know of the good work that this troop, 0318, did on their “THANKS TO VETERANS” assembly this last week. I was lucky enough to score an invite as an old VET and it was a great get together. We had all the girls and families in attendance; but, I was also one of six veterans who attended the function. I really thought of maybe not attending. Although I am a Vet, I do not feel special and did not want anyone making a big fuss about my service. Looking back in retrospect, it was my honor to have served this great nation. Boy am I glad I did attend! It was an additional honor to address and associate with these wonderful young ladies.They made me and all the Veterans feel appreciated in every way possible!

I happened to take along my “dog tags” and they were interested in them; but, the thing that caught their eye the most was my “Basic Training Book” from the time I spent in training at Fort Bliss, Texas. The book is a walk back thru time in all aspects of the training we received during our 8-week time on base. We also spent some time training in New Mexico; and when I completed my training, I was shipped to Fort Huachuca, Arizona. The girls really got interested in the what’s and when’s of the training and listened intently to the stories this old VET had to tell. There were many questions about the old days and the old ways from back then.

I received the invite as my granddaughter is a member and my daughter is one of the wonderful group of lady councilors who are furnishing guidance to these young girls. They are trying to instill in them the respect and reverence for the flag, their country and for their elders. From what I saw, they are doing a great job. The girls had made gifts for the Vets, and they furnished snacks for everyone.

I wished I had thought earlier about what I wanted to take; because I would have taken the song,”My Marine” that I wrote for a friend whose son had joined the Marines and it was really hard on her to let go! The song might have helped the girls realize even more so of the sacrifices made by the soldiers themselves; and, also the sacrifices made by the families of all military personnel. If you would like to hear the song, please check the link below.

And once again, I’d like to thank all involved for the work in making all of the VETS feel such appreciation! Believe me it will be remembered! I visited with each, and every VET and they all felt the same. It only makes COMMON SENSE to teach our young people about what our VETS have done for this country.



Well folks, we are about to celebrate once again the founding of this great experiment, we call AMERICA! It will be, or has been, about 246 years since our founding; and, we have had more than a few milestones. We had a revolution at our start which was hard; and, then we have had things such as CIVIL WAR, WORLD WARS, ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENTS AND ATTEMPTS, PANDEMICS, RIOTS AND SO MANY OTHER OBSTACLES, way too many to mention them all. It is amazing that we have survived all of these trials and here we are at the threshold of another “BIRTHDAY”! IF YOU REALLY STOP AND CONSIDER WHAT WE HAVE GONE THRU, IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE THAT WE ARE STILL HERE, AS A COUNTRY! Now, let us look back over our achievements; but, maybe we should look at where we are today and where we want to go in the future. So, hold on tight, while I give my thoughts, ideas and opinions on that subject.

We have arrived here, after all the above-mentioned trials, to a place where we might be more divided than ever before, other than maybe during the Vietnam War! That was a time of division, that to be honest, I did not think would ever heal but it did. They say, “TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS” and so it is! Search far and wide and you will find no other so dedicated to the religious right or the conservative side than myself. I have many times criticized the “LEFT” as “liberal bastages” and meant every word of it and will continue to stand behind what I’ve said and how I said it. I know that some on the “LEFT” are just as committed to their opinions as I am to mine and so it should be. They have every right to those opinions; and, as a VET that has served this great country, that is what we, as VETs, were fighting for in all the battles. We wanted for everyone to be free to practice the freedoms that our “CONSTITUTION” guaranteed each of us. It does not say as long as you agree with me “you are free”; but, even if you disagree with me, you have the right to do so although you are most likely completely wrong. It also works in the reverse and that is where most “LIBERAL BASTAGES” go wrong in thinking: that, if I disagree with their way of thinking, I’m some “EVIL BASTAGE” worthy of spending time in prison until I change my mind. Look no further than the January 6th Committee hearings and the persons in prison today for a year and a half and never have been charged with a crime. It is the “LEFT” that has locked up people for their thoughts and actions without being charged nor a trial to defend themselves. This is wrong no matter which side you are on! Remember the saying about Hillary of “LOCK HER UP”? But she was never really locked up!

I guess what I’m trying to say here is although we may never see “EYE TO EYE” on some subjects can’t we at least come to some agreement that “ALL MEN SHOULD BE TREATED EQUAL” in the eyes of the law. Let us set aside what we disagree on and look for “COMMON GROUND”! After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so. I can and will try hard to look past your stupid, dumb-ass statements so that you might see the wisdom of my statements and be convinced to join me come November in voting these “LIBERAL BASTAGES” out of office. That is how the system was set up in the beginning! No riots or burning of towns just getting results at the voting booth much as conservatives did with the abortion issue although it took some 50 years. So, if you disagree with me then get off your lazy ass and try to beat me at the voting booth! We as conservatives will not burn your house down as liberal bastages like to do.

If you think I’m wrong, then you have every right to say so and you can respond to this blog. The response will be posted for all to see, and you can try your best to convince me to change my mind. After all, that is the American way and what this July 4th thing is all about. Vote, vote, vote as it only makes common sense to do so.

Now, for my opinion on guns, let me ask all you “TOWNIES” if you have ever cat napped sitting under the stars between the barn and chicken coup with a gun across your lap all night long to protect your livestock/chickens from coyotes, foxes and coon asses? If not, then do not even try to discuss guns with me! Our lifestyle is completely different from your “LBTQC plus lifestyle” and you could never understand our way of life. Just as I cannot understand why you want to live on top of each other. I will allow you to live your way, but do not expect me to understand, condone or to join in. Just as I cannot ask you to do the same with our Hill Country/BRUSH Country Texas Cowboy style of life. We are different and must live differently just to survive. I’m sure it is the same in your “Urban Jungle” also. So, live your life and we will live ours and as the old saying goes, “LIVE AND LET LIVE”! We will all be happier if we just do that and do not try to change one an other’s way of life.

Happy 4th of July and may God Bless You!


Holler all you want! But, to kneel during our “National Anthem” is disrespectful of the flag and of our country.  The President was perfectly on point by calling out these cowards.  Most of these players do not have the “guts” to enlist and serve their country.  A few, like Villareal of the Steelers, did and do and for this I say “thank you”.  These over-paid cry babies know nothing of the real world and the hardship of making a living.  They have been coddled their entire life, beginning in high school, simply because they played football or basketball well. They were given a chance at education which most rejected.  They seldom went to class and now they are coddled again as so-called “professionals”. Maybe, just maybe, one out of a hundred of these “liberal bastages” could make a living outside of the sports arena. Call me racist if it makes you feel good; but, this has nothing to do with race–it is all about patriotism.  Although, if you look at the pictures of the “kneelers”, they are mostly blacks.  Pictures don’t lie.

If they are such “upstanding citizens”, let’s review their arrest records.  They are a bunch of “coddled thugs”.  They started showing the “rap sheets” of the NFL players on TV the other night and after about a minute they quit and were not but in the middle of the list. Like I said, “coddled thugs”.  I’m 72 years old and the only thing on my record is a speeding ticket for running 75 in a 65.  This does not mean I wasn’t a problem; but, it shows that when the police arrived I had enough “COMMON SENSE” to not call them “pigs in a blanket” and to be respectful and use the term “yes sir and no sir”.  These people are being paid hundreds of thousands and some millions of dollars to play a game and then do not have enough sense to keep their mouths shut.  If attendance falls and it hits them in the pocketbook, they have only themselves to blame.

The owners should have a meeting and explain the situation to these “dummies” and insist that they stand quietly then go about playing the game.  The fans have come to a game, not a political rally.  They do not want to have the controversy as they simply want to be entertained.  If these “thugs” worked for me, they would adhere to the rules I set forth in my company or they would be on the outside looking in.  The owners should make it clear to the players that they work for the owner and it is he that calls the shots. So, some of this nonsense is the owner’s fault.  The owners need to “grow a pair” and tell the players how it really is out in the business world.

I, for one, am sick of this crap and will never attend a game of the NFL or NBA.  In fact, I have even stopped watching on TV; so, advertisers take note.  If you ad people want to reach me, then you will or can stop putting ads on during the games.  I’ll take my dollars and give it to the “veterans groups”.  I’ll donate to help the people who helped afford me my freedoms; and, not anything that might help these “coddled thugs”.  If they insist on “kneeling”, why not visit one of the veterans hospitals and “kneel and say thank you to a vet”. After all, without their sacrifice, you would not have the freedoms afforded you in this great country.  You know, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.


Well folks, here we are trying to complete the election process and the democrats are out in force interfering with the process which was put in place by our “FOUNDING FATHERS”.  The process is supposed to be free from “undue influence”; but someone needs to inform the democrats what that means.  The voting, notice it is voting, is by the electors which have been elected to represent their states preference.  That is a simplistic view but that’s it in nutshell.  These protestors/harassers are calling by phone and texting, approaching electors at work and demonstrating outside their homes.  This is wrong in so many ways.

Now, the same bunch of malcontents are in an uproar over Russia’s possible interference in our election process, but they have brought forth no true evidence.  It is supposed to be the “email dump” that the Russians might have been backing that has these people calling for an “interference flag”.  None of the democrats have stated the emails were false. But the fact is they wrote them and just did not want you, the public, to know how they thought.  It simply showed how the democrats really think about the public.  It showed they are elitist and think of the “working man” as beneath them and that they the elitist democrats need to make decisions for these poor stupid souls because they are too stupid to make decisions for themselves.  We, on the other hand, know better and that is exactly why they got the “boot”, their “elitist attitude”.  They still do not realize what happened. And if they did, they would not be trying to interfere with the process.  They still think they, the democrats, know better.

Now let me ask you a question, please?  Russia, as I see it, may have been somewhat involved with the “email dump”. But, that in no way changed the election other than the people got the info the democrats were hiding.  After getting the info, I will admit that some might have said, “well I’m not voting for that puppy”.  Now back to my question as I think I got off track a bit.  Is this interference involving them and the “electors” not what they are “bitching” about Russia doing?  It is even greater because they are “directly trying to influence the elector’s vote”.  This would not be allowed at the voting booth and should not be allowed in this situation either.  Plain and simple it is “voter fraud”.  It is lucky for them that OBAMA’S DOJ is still in position to fade the heat.  The DOJ stood by and did nothing in the election when they had video of two “black panthers” trying to harass voters with bats.  Even with a video, the DOJ hides under its desk.  The AG at that time was Eric Holder just a flunky for Obama.  I wonder were this SP has landed.

Think about this long and hard and you will see that it only makes “COMMON SENSE” that they, the democrats, are trying their best to spoil our “free and lawful” election.  We will by the time this hits the presses already know that the “AMERICAN PEOPLE” have once again spoken and rejected their ideas altogether.  Just another win in the process to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”.

If you like  the following video “Make America Great Again” you can download the song at:

Thanking you for your help in advance.

HANDS UP, DON’T SHOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, now there is a slogan that every person in the country can use.  If and when I decide to commit a crime and the law shows up, I think I will use it.  Maybe, just maybe, I’ll not use it after all because it might insult the officer.  Maybe, just maybe, I’ll not commit any crimes and I will not have to worry about it at all.  Now, if I, who am not a rocket scientist, can come up with such a thought, surely all these young black men, thugs/gangstas, presented as “choir boys” should be able to figure this out also.  These fools have never, nor have their parent, notice it is singular, ever figured it out.  This is explained slightly more by the photo to follow.

When or how are we to ever explain the concept of getting married before having children, getting educated, getting spiritually nourished, getting a job and working hard and in general, “keeping your nose clean” and how it benefits all people?   Sure sounds nerdy when compared to the gangsta rap which most of the black community kneel to and worship.  The new generation of “blacks” are very liberal and it has not served them well.  The “black” community of years past knew the value of the “work ethic”, spiritual guidance and FAMILY values.  This generation of “young blacks” have been corrupted by the liberal movement and by the drug culture.  They have not realized that the “DNC” is the new “slave master” and they are just puppets being manipulated by the masters.  They have not taken full advantage of emancipation; but, simply traded or moved from one plantation to another.  Their ancestors worked the “cotton plantations” to just get by and this generation has or is working the “welfare system” to just survive.  Check this out now, watch this really close, I am going to give you “thugs” the secret to survive well and prosper. “READ THE FIRST SENTENCE OF THIS PARAGRAPH OVER AND OVER AT LEAST ONE HUNDRED TIMES OR UNTIL IT TRULY SINKS INTO YOUR THICK HEAD”!!!!!!!!!!! I may be over simplifying or asking to much of them because most will think “paragraph” is the way old “blacks” listened to “gangsta rap” in the “old days”. (CLUE, not phonograph) Here I go again using those big “college words”. I know this is harsh, but everyone loves a little comedy. This just all makes “COMMON SENSE”.

Now, to prove my point about education and “COMMON SENSE”, hopefully, the following photo will open your eyes.  It demonstrates the “blacks” starting point in this whole discussion.  If we are that far apart or we have to start our “sales pitch” there, we will never find “COMMON SENSE GROUND” so to speak.  If this does not explain it all without me defining it for you, then the problem is much worse than I thought.  If you do not comprehend the picture or the thought that went into the sign, then please rush to find someone with “COMMON SENSE” to explain it to you.  Please do not call or e-mail me to help you because if you do not understand this photo then you are “way too much of a dumb ass for me to even try to explain it to you”.  Thanks, but “no thanks”!!!!!

P.S.  Not all “blacks” are to be painted with this brush.  Many such as Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Allan West, Alan Keyes, Thomas Sowell or Condoleezza Rice are all great Americans.  All should be thought of as “HEROS” in the black community.



Hey, now here is a real question that may have never been answered.  I may not answer the question to many readers liking; but, at least I’m going to give all of you “food for thought,” or better yet, let you take a look at information from a “COMMON SENSE” angle.  My hope is that each and every one of you will pass this on to any “democrat” you may run into.

I know I will offend the democrats. But, do you really think I care? Although, it is the democrats that I want to reach so that maybe, just maybe, I might convert their mindless thought into something close to a “COMMON SENSE” thought.  I know, I know, you are screaming at me for thinking I might rewire their brains from “backwards” to “COMMON SENSE” but I must try.  The information about to be presented is on many sites; but, no one ever takes the time to look it up.  Most democrats know it is there; but, they really do not want the truth to be known as “truth to a democrat is like sunlight is to Dracula”.  It really does destroy them and their argument and I guess that hurts.

I will try to explain or present the information so as not to offend and I will try to keep my personal feelings hidden so as not to influence a readers decision about the subject.  YEA, RIGHT !!!!! So here we go democrats, read’um and weep.

Here is a list of the nation’s top listed crime cities in no particular order.  They all have bad crime rates and this is a list of the “top ten”, as David Letterman might say.

     Top Crime Cities                White/Black Ratio  

  • East St. Louis, IL                   4/95
  • Saginaw, MI                        48/42
  • Atlanta, GA                          34/58
  • Birmingham, AL                 42/52
  • Detroit, MI                            10/81
  • Memphis, TN                       35/58
  • Miami, FL                            11/19/70
  • Baltimore, MD                   28/63
  • Kansas City, MO                62/26                 
  • Cleveland, OH                    39/51 

Now, aren’t all you residents proud of yourselves for making the list?  I bet every Mayor is just jumping with joy since their leadership is working so well.  If you didn’t notice, these are all in areas where the democrats are in control and have been in control of government for years.  Quite a “testament” to democrats.  These democrats are going to squirm under this type of exposure; but, maybe the folks that elect these “clowns” will have their eyes opened to the facts.  What is that old saying, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome”.  The people keep electing democrats over and over again and expecting a different outcome.  For example, the “black” population continue to be a “block” vote for the democrats and the party does nothing for them.  The “black” population has just moved from one plantation to another plantation.  For goodness sake, open your eyes.  It was the democrats that owned the “plantations of the south” and it is the democrats that own the politics of the cities, “new plantations”,  in which you live.  Get the hell out or change your leadership!  It will not get any better until you make the change.  The numbers to the side of each city represent the percentage of whites verses black population (note that in Miami, the third number is the Hispanic and others).  This is a very interesting and telling comparison also.

Cities by Poverty Rank         Democratic Since

  • Detroit, MI                             1961
  • Buffalo, NY                            1954
  • Cincinnati, OH                     1984
  • Cleveland, OH                      1989
  • Miami, FL                             forever
  • St. Louis, MO                        1949
  • El Paso, TX                            forever
  • Milwaukee, WI                     1908
  • Philadelphia, PA                  1952
  • Newark, NJ                          1907

Now let us look at the poorest cities list.  Notice that only three show up on both list. But, if we ran down the list a bit farther, we would find more of the cities on both list.  No one is pro-poverty; but, the two parties have completely different ideas on how to solve the problem.  Democrats want to raise taxes so as to “give” the poor (black or white) a small token, “the new plantation effect”, while the republicans  want to create jobs/opportunities to move the poor (black or white) off of welfare, or off “the plantation”.   Much like what President Clinton did by co-opting the republican’s “Welfare Act”.   It worked and the welfare rolls went down until we got democrats back in control and here went the “give me programs”.  It really has nothing to do with size of the city.  If you elect democrats to run small towns, they simply make smaller messes than their counterparts do in the big cities.  Like, “two peas in a pod”, so to speak.

If these lists and the information presented does not enlighten you, then you must be a “thick-headed liberal” whose brain is hardwired backwards.  If the “light does not come on” after reviewing these facts and lists, then you have no “COMMON SENSE” and must be ” written off as a lost cause”.  I would love to help you; but, you must want to help yourself.





What a mouth full!  The title says it all.  We really are a country founded by geniuses, but run by idiots.  We are the country that founded “freedom for all”, we are the country that stopped Hitler, we are the country that freed the slaves, we are the country that gave women the “right to vote,” we are the country with the strongest and most ethical military in the world, and we, along with our ally, Israel, have given the world more advances in every field of life than any other country.  Yet, have you noticed that the “liberals” look at our country as some kind of monster.  They opine about how we murder so many innocents, such as with Japan.  Do they not realize that it was Japan that snuck up on us in the middle of the night to try to destroy our country?  Do they not realize that we saved thousands of lives by the dropping of the bombs on Japan?  Those lives saved were of Americans and Japanese both; so as it turned out, it was a positive.  Do they not realize that we have not heard a “pip” out of them since and it has been some 69 years and they still realize and respect our power.  Maybe, just maybe, we ought to do the same to these idiot murders named Islam/Muslim terrorist, or what ever name our President has decide to use today.

We have, as a country, elected a President that has surrounded himself with idiots.  “COMMON SENSE” will tell you that “birds of a feather, flock together”.  They are leading this country in the wrong direction; and we, as a nation, are no longer respected for our position of leadership or power because of the President’s policies and those decisions of his administration.  We need to change course ASAP and this November needs to be the starting point.  Vote the “liberal idiots” out of office!

The following is an article from the internet but it is simply full of ” COMMON SENSE” so I wanted all to have a “look-see”.  Please read it and see if you agree or disagree.  If you disagree, then “YOU” are part of the problem and you need to remove your head from that “dark passage”.

How Did We Let The Democraps Lead Us To This?…

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but 
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not
 to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but 
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman 
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free 
cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment 
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country!

How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

Hopefully, after reading this, everyone can see that we need a change of direction for our country.  It will not be easy; but, we must “give it the old college try” this November.  By the way, if your life style gets in the way of you going to the poll to vote these “liberals” out of office, then all I can tell you is “COMMON SENSE” tells us that you are also part of the problem and you have no grounds to “bitch” if you do not do your part by voting.  Now, go “suck on them there sour grapes”.

By the way, this blog does have a comment section if you so desire to do so.


“My brothers in arms” is a reference to the “brotherhood” that exist between all branches of the “ARMED SERVICES”: Army, Navy, Coastguard, Reserves, Air Force and Marines.  The “brotherhood” is real and is felt to differing degrees by all that have served this great nation.  I served six years and truly feel that I am better off today, as a man, because of that service.  It taught me a number of things, some being: self-respect, team work, loyalty and patriotism.  As all that know me personally will attest, I am very patriotic and it all streams from my time in the service and my respect for the flag.  I get tears in my eyes when the flag goes by or during the “National Anthem”.  I even got emotional during the recent Olympics when one of our people won “gold” and they played the “National Anthem”.  Laugh if you must, but it really does mean something special to me; and you might just get “my boot in your ass” if you laugh too long or too loud.

I have always said that all who “served”, no matter the branch, have this feeling and  I would really like to have some of you respond under the comments section.  Please, give me your take on how “patriotism” effects you.  It will be very interesting to see if I am correct. I think it only makes “COMMON SENSE” that those who served have more dedication to the country and her well-being.

I will tell you that I could not agree more with what you are to read in the following “Open Letter To The President”.  This soldier says it about as well as any I have heard, while all the time disclosing information that I have never heard about the President.  This man was elected without any real knowledge of “who he really is”!!!  I knew from the start that he had no real character; but he has shown me time and time again that as bad as I thought he was or might be; he is much worse.  Pay close attention as you read this soldier’s letter and I’m sure you will hear a thing or two that was never disclosed by the media during the vetting process.  I have not fact checked every word but believe it to be true; and if it is true, it sheds a lot of light on how he reacts today.

Senior Airman Brian Kolfage is a U.S. hero.  He is a triple-amputee veteran of the War in Iraq who has surpassed all odds and made the most incredible recovery of any veteran to ever survive his injuries.  He is a patriot – the kind of man you want your son to grow up to be.  This is his letter to Obama on President’s Day.

My Open Letter to Obama on Presidents’  Day.

I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended. I would notice the Bentleys, Maserati’s, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school and the upper class citizens who attended it. The tuition to attend your exclusive, private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.

After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend Ivy League schools, and I sought out a military career to in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually sets the tone for what we will face later in life that will make us successful. I worked to get where I am today, and YOU WERE HANDED IT….Mr. Inequality.

I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn’t selected, which ultimately got me placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm. I’ve never asked myself was losing 3 limbs in a war worth it, even though many Americans were against it.

I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq. Children, who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It’s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor would so frequently play the inequality card.

While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that’s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin. However, since the day you busted onto the scene you’ve been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqi’s invested. And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn’t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that’s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said “Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely. Clearly, you’re unfit for duty as a Commander in Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America’s agenda, and now you have single handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that you’ve personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and we’ve watched families destroyed by war’s aftermath.

I’m not placing blame on you for the war, I’m placing blame on you for destroying what we’ve worked so hard to build. You’re not a leader, you’re a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America’s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can’t help but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. They’re probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it’s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again; all because of your poor leadership qualities. Regardless of why we went to Iraq, its water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA’s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and you’ve wasted every death and every limb, it’s all for nothing. And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures

You’re just another elitist rich thug who’s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner-city. You’re only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans. Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. You’ve been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

Did you catch the part about the “private school”?  Isn’t it strange that this President went to a private, elite school but resists “school vouchers” for the “under privileged” children of today?  Damn near all the blacks fell all over themselves to vote for this “community organizer” never realizing how he felt about them.  He is an elitist; and he was and is saying to the black community that he is black but that you are just “niggers” and do not deserve a chance at a first class education.  This term does not just refer to the blacks but to all the “under privileged”!  This is not only racial discrimination, but class discrimination as well.  We as a nation need for all our children  to get the best education possible so that they develop into first-rate citizens.  This education need not be void of “spiritual education” and knowledge of “GOD ALMIGHTY” and the sacrifices he made to make you whole. It must also include education in “morals and ethics” backed by scripture and the “TEN COMMANDMENTS”.  It only makes “COMMON SENSE” that you need reading, writing and arithmetic  along with spiritual guidance as well.


Boy howdy, am I going to stir up some liberals! We have just recently come off of the MLK holiday so I thought I might present some thought provoking ideas. They, the liberals, may have a heart attack after reading what I have to say.  That is OK with me as I have for sometime been trying to rid the world of their plight.  I truly believe that MLK would indeed be a conservative today and here is a news flash: he may have, or was borderline, at the time  of his death.  Just like Governor Martinez said after a meeting with the republican committee in New Mexico, “Damn I’m a Republican”; and just like her, I think, MLK probably said to himself, “You know I find myself agreeing more with conservatives everyday.”  Now I realize that this is a hard pill for some to shallow; but, I will make my point in the words to follow.

First off, MLK was a “man of the cloth”, a “God-fearing Christian,” which tells me he had to be more conservative than all those so-called Christian “Dixiecrats”.  There is no way you can be a Christian and be a democrat.  As I have stated before, the two are opposing ideas and are 180 degrees at different ends of the scale.  So, MLK was a Christian thusly more conservative.  He also believed in equal pay for equal work which is a conservative principle.  Democrats believe in the union where you get paid the same, but that you can not be fired so the guy next to you can get the same pay for half the production.  MLK applied for a gun permit but was denied.  He surely believed in the 2nd amendment or he would have not applied for the gun permit.  Yet another conservative principle.  By the way, the blacks, as slaves, were not permitted to own a weapon or gun powder for that matter. Just another restriction of rights, so the black community of today better be careful of what they wish.  He as a Christian would never have thought it a great idea to pay a person unemployment for almost three years and to allow welfare to be spent on other than basic survival items.  Again, another Christian, but also conservative principle.  He was big into a man being judged by “his character rather than the color of his skin”.  Yet another conservative principle.  The republicans are the party that freed the slaves and yet the “old yellow dog democrats” convinced the blacks to vote for them because of the welfare system.  That system is just another form of keeping people on the plantation.  It is truly amazing that the democrats preach one thing in the light of day and practice something completely different in the dark of night.  Be a man, stand on your own two feet, take care of your own family, get a good education and get in the game.  That is not only what republicans stand for but it is the “AMERICAN” way and shall I say makes “COMMON SENSE”.

So, here we are after taking a look at the material presented; and, I for one can only conclude that MLK, if alive today would not only be more conservative today than he was before he was assassinated; but might very well be promoting the election of conservatives over liberals to public office.  I can only imagine how he would have changed and how he might have changed the landscape of American politics.

It is hard to view our America in the shape it is in today knowing all the while that with a few simple “COMMON SENSE” changes we could get back to the ideas that led us to the  greatness of yesteryear.  Please inform yourselves on the issues and vote for the people who really want to turn this ship around.  We need people in office that are not concerned with their own well-being, but with the well-being of our country. After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to support the true patriots.


Well, here we go again.  I’ve given the readers a break and I have taken a little break to try to refresh my thoughts.  As you can see from the title, I have been thinking about being an American and what does it really mean.  I can and will tell you what I think it means; but, what I really want to accomplish is for each of you to study the title and decide for yourself what it means to you.  I think that you might agree with me after giving it some thought.

You see, I think this is the greatest nation on earth and I am both proud and thankful to be an American.  We have a “Constitution” and a “Bill of Rights” that guide us each step along the path of being an American.  As important as these documents are, we must realize that our “rights come from our Creator” and that these documents only support the “rights from our Creator” in a legal manner.  America was founded on basic “Judeo-Christian” beliefs.    So, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” that each of us thank “GOD” for the opportunity of being born here instead of anywhere else, like maybe Indonesia, Kenya or Iran.  The people born in these places, as well as all Communists countries, have no basic instinct into the freedoms of this great country.  Therefore, when someone emigrates to this country they must be educated in our ways, language, culture and laws.  In early America, most immigrants came to this country through “Ellis Island” and there were requirements and a test which had to be passed to prove each immigrate deserving of the title of “AMERICAN”.  Boy has that changed!  I have a dear friend that became a U.S. citizen a couple of years ago and she was so proud.  We had a really big party for her with all her friends in attendance with all the red, white and blue decorations.  There were tears in everyone’s eye when she said in her speech “Just how proud she was to finally be an AMERICAN”.  It took her about five years to get through all the red tape and to take her nationalization test.  After she passed, she told me “I studied so hard because it was so important to me; but, I was disappointed in the simplistic questions on the test. It was so simple that I could have passed it and never studied.  It really should be much more demanding a test for such a prize as citizenship”.  Stop for a moment folks and think about this.  We, as a nation, are giving this wonderful prize of citizenship and not demanding very much in return.

Not only have we cheapened citizenship; but, we no longer even care if the immigrants become citizens.  We have cheapened it by bestowing all the rights of citizenship without requiring that they become citizens.  We have lost our way.  Not only have we lost our way; but, we have, or, are in the process of losing our culture.  In an effort to not offend the immigrants, we have robbed not only ourselves but the immigrants themselves.  We have robbed them of that prideful feeling of EARNING citizenship and TRULY BECOMING AN AMERICAN. Some of my most prized processions are the ones I had to “work my ass off to get”.  The two that I prize the most are my wife and daughter and believe you me when I tell you they made me earn their respect.  Of course, the “Runt” is making me work also.

Now to prove my point I’m going back to 1907 when a President, Theodore Roosevelt, made a speech about immigration.  I have mentioned how I feel; but, I will never be able to say it any better than he did.  It is something that should be said again and again and every “AMERICAN” should hear it and never forget it.  The following is a exert from his speech:
Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American….There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

I know that some liberals will hardily disagree with this “one American” thing, but I do not care.  It is time for us to become “ONE AMERICA” again and that truly does require no more of this African-American or Mexican-American or Jewish-American.  We are all and must be AMERICANS – FIRST AND FOREMOST!  Maybe we should pay more attention to, “ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE  WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL”.  “How sweet the sound”!  That truly is what being American is all about and it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to spread the word.
