Shame on Me, Memorial Day Honors Belated

I FORGOT TO HIT THE POST BUTTON!!  I’M MORTIFIED SINCE I HAD VOWED TO MYSELF THAT I WOULD GET THIS POST OUT 😦  BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, RIGHT?!

 

 

 

 

Monday’s Military Honors!

With Regret Via My Mother – Sadly, So True!

   |: WITH REGRET:|

America idolized and memorialized Whitney Houston, yet looked the
other way concerning her well-known substance abuse and tumultuous
life with singer Bobby Brown.
Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a
Substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a
Celebrity drug addict and thief.

Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian’s stupid wedding [and
Short-lived marriage] was shoved down our throats like they count for
something, WHILE……..

Justin Allen 23
Brett Linley 29
Matthew Weikert 29
Justus Bartett 27
Dave Santos 21
Jesse Reed 26
Matthew Johnson 21
Zachary Fisher 24
Brandon King 23
Christopher Goeke 23
And Sheldon Tate 27…

Are all Marines who gave their lives last month for us. There is no
Media for them; not even a mention of their names.

Young Men who most likely came from rural America seeking a chance
To better themselves and to serve this county.

My Veterans Day Salute

  

For my father, uncles, nephew and every other Service Member of The Armed Forces, both active and inactive or retired, MY DEEPEST THANK YOU TODAY AND EVERY DAY!  MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL!!

A Picture Worth 1000 Words – E-mail Via Mom – Sadly Disgusting

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.
 
 
 


 

 
Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?
35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government
 
Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.
 
This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.
 
This is an idea that we should address.
 
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform… in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.
 
If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.
 
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”

Prayer request
According to the weather reports, it is our understanding that it is 122 degrees in
Iraq right now — and the low will be 111!
Our troops need our prayers for strength,
endurance, and safety…
If it be God’s will, give these men and
women the strength they need to prevail. 
I am sorry but I am not breaking
this one… Let us pray.
 Prayer chain for our
Military… please don’t
break it.
Please send this on
after a short prayer.

Prayer:

‘Lord, please hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them
as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for
us in our time of need.. Amen.’
 Prayer Request:
When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer
for our troops around the world.


Just send this to all the
people in your address book.
Do not let it stop with you,
please.

Of all the gifts you could give a Soldier, Sailor, Airman,
Marine & others deployed in
harm’s way,
prayer is the very best one!
