United Nations Nonsense

What an oxymoron. The United Nations is anything but united. Every time we get involved with them we get the short end of the stick. It is not bad enough that we pay most of the freight, we now have less and less influence. I don't know about you but I am getting sick and tired of getting taken advantage of and having to stand there and take it.

That is why I have placed a link to the National Association for Gun Rights petition on the Wayne County Taxpayers Association website. I know that in these hard times you may not choose to make a contribution, but please sign the petition.

I used to laugh at people who talked about one world government. No more. The crashing of the money supply around the world due to debt and greed has me convinced that at least some people are working together and not for our benefit. Control should come from the people not the other way around.

Never Give Up

November is fast approaching and while we think we might know what will happen, we can not be sure. The one thing we can be sure of is that if we do not make changes we will be in worse trouble than we are in already.

I keep hearing people ask if the Tea Parties can make it all the way to November. I have news for those people. We have to be committed to be there long after the election.
"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
--Thomas Paine: The American Crisis, No. 4,1777

Throughout history, you will find similar comments made by people who others have labeled great minds. It is not coinsidence that they have come to the same conclusion. Their analysis is based on common sense and observation.

The Tea Parties may seem ragtag at times but that is because they are not made up of polished politicians. They are made up of people who love their county and their way of life and are afraid they are losing it. While I am not one to trust the mainstream media for their acuracy, there was a survey done by CBS that was pretty extensive. The Tea Party members are not made up of the faint of heart. For that, I thank God.

An American Model

Emery McClendon at RightOnline 2010 from AFPhq on Vimeo.

The first time I met Emery McClendon I thought he was sort of a quiet guy. Boy was I wrong. I met him three years ago at the Americans For Prosperity, Defending the American Dream Conference. We shared ideas and at the end of the conference, because there were few from Indiana attending, he came with the Michigan delegation to a revolving restaurant on top of a hotel for dinner. We shared more thoughts and exchanged email addresses and have been communicating since.

This man has impressed me greatly. His dedication to this country through his service, his willingness to speak out, his sincerity and determination have impressed me permanently.

He does what we should all be doing in these difficult times. We need to be fighting to hold on to the thing hat have made America Great.
