America under attack

America is under assault from key oil producing states.

The energy prices and policies of these radical regimes are systematically undermining our economy, our national security and our way of life.

We pay a hefty ransom for oil - $2 billion every day to the likes of Saudi Arabia, Iran and Venezuela, as well as other foreign powers.

Americans are sick and tired of our broken energy policy, and we want solutions.

We have the power to abundant energy resources, including the vast amount of oil and gas offshore in the Outer Continental Shelf and in Alaska's Artic National Wildlife Refuge. It also explores fascinating topics, including hydroelectric, wind power, oil shale, natural gas, hydrogen, plug-in hybrids, electric cars, biofuels, solar, clean coal, nuclear power, the need for new refineries and the problem of runaway litigation.

We have the power, America! As Americans, we all have the power, and the time to act is now!

Can anyone please explain how this happened?

I was born in America. When I was old enough, I joined the army during the Viet Nam era.

I watched, as four of my closest high school friends died horrible deaths. Still today, I thank God I made it home.

I went to work until 1983 when I got hit by a truck and became disabled. Even though they knew this, I got refused. It wasn't until 1992 that I was accepted and started getting a disability income. Now here comes the rub.

I know a man who was born in Trinidad, he comes to this country and tried to become a citizen, but fails. He then changes his first and last name, and all of a sudden he now gets a check, $100 less than me right away.

It took me 21 years to get what I get, and this guy right away gets $100 less than me.

Now, here is what needs to be explained.

This man is now living in Sweden, while someone here in America is getting his check! Does this make sense? Not to me, it doesn't.

Oh, when he needs to be here he comes for a little while and goes right back to Sweden.

What this is coming to is that more and more people from other countries can get these benefits right away, while Americans have to fight for the little we get; and we deserve more!

They didn't even work here and get these benefits and more! Something needs to be done!

I am looking forward to seeing this and hoping that someone out there can stop this right away!

Enjoying the food

It would appear that (George) Zimmerman is truly enjoying the food in jail. He's put on at least 50 pounds.

Perhaps the cook at the facility is too good.

If his stay in jail is supposed to be punishment, you'd never know it by looking at him.

Responsible people, come forth

I don't know who to blame for what's happening in the world, but I have a hint, which is: those who are responsible for this mass never appear to be in the front line and (are) always hiding behind the curtains and their expensive homes and ranches and mansions, as they make us hate each other.

They call themselves "man and women of the Lord," but they rape, molest children, steal and so on and have a comfortable life; where we, as ordinary man, have to struggle for ends (to) meet.

So I ask you to use your Godly gift, which is your brains, talk to each other and analyze it for yourself, because, by listening to the disturbing news these days and some rich to the max "man of God," we will never reach the truth, which seems to me that's what they are trying to avoid.

God bless.

New rules

1. No lawyers are allowed in any elected government position anywhere. All lawsuits will be arbitrated by independent people and capped.

2. There will be term limits on all elected officials.

3. There will be a flat tax for everyone, rich and poor.

4. Instead of making life hard on all Americans because of terrorism, we need to switch roles. We need to scrutinize all Muslims in this country, plus their comings and goings. I am not saying don't let them practice their religion; however, this is the group of people who are killing and hacking our people to death. If they do not like it, fix the radical people or go home.

Finally, Margaret Thatcher said Socialism isn't a bad idea until you run out of everybody else's money!

Have a nice day!

End abortion now or incur the wrath

Abortion is a national sin because it breaks God's commandment, "Thou shall not kill."

Yet, we continue, without mercy, slaughtering a million innocent, unborn babies a year.

Many Americans think there is no downside to abortion, because they have no one to defend the unborn.

America, wake up, because these unborn babies do have an advocate, who is quick and powerful.

Believe me, we don't want incur the wrath of their advocate on our nation.

The good news is that we can avoid God's wrath by ending abortion now.

Thank you.

Bette Midler, the Tea Party and the IRS

I just destroyed my one and only CD of Bette Midler.

I did not do so because we have opposing views on the matter of the Tea Party.

I did it because I don't agree with Bette Midler that the Internal Revenue Service should have the power to deny organizations, such as the Tea Party and others, the right to free speech.

So, I'm sorry, Bette Midler, you lost a fan. Bye.

Memorial Day tribute

On this Memorial Day, I would like to pay tribute to those brave people who are serving, those who have served and those who gave everything.

But, it is very troubling what is happening to our nation, while our people are dying on foreign soil and spilling our blood for ideology.

But it is heartbreaking to see how our nation is coming apart at the seams with all of the scandals and what is behind them. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

What is more confusing and more dangerous is that no one is going to be held accountable.

They are literally trashing our Constitution.
