It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the
VETERAN, not the reporter,  who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the
VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the
VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the
VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the
VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag,  

It is the VETERAN who serves under the Flag, 


I'd be EXTREMELY proud if this message reached as many as possible. We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
Bless them all!!!

Makes you proud to be an AMERICAN!!!!

Happy Memorial Day

By Tena Bastian
I give my life for your life
I give my strength for your day today
My family goes on without me
So that yours can stand up and say...
I am proud to be an American
There is no other country where I would ever be
The sons and daughters, the sisters and brothers
Our sacrifice comes down to me
The soldier who fought for freedom
and the mother who sits alone
Holding in her hand, the letter
That says I did not make it home
I give my life for your life
I do this without regret
I only ask one thing of you
That none of you will ever forget
How priceless is this freedom
To young and old, rich and poor
That all of you live your life to it's fullest
And remember what were fighting for
Not just today but every day
Pause for a moment and bow your head
For those who stepped up and offered their service
And for the wounded and the dead.
I give my life for your life
As does every soldier in every war
On American soil or in a distant land
If I can ask just one thing more...
May God bless the wounded soldier
May he bless and keep those close to him now
May he watch over the ones who stand at arms
And help them find their way home somehow
May you keep them in your thoughts and prayers
May the fighting someday cease
Because I give my life for your life
But I also pray for peace.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. Please keep this going by forwarding it today to everyone in your life. In honor of those who fight for freedom and pray for peace, of their families who make the ultimate sacrifice, THANK YOU!

I'm a card-carrying Right-wing Extremist!

I am sick and tired of the attacks coming from the new congressional and executive leadership against law abiding citizens simply because of their faith or the values they hold. The Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) efforts to label you and me as "extremists" and "terror threats" are outrageous. 

I just requested a free "Right-wing Extremist" wallet card as my way of turning the tables on misguided DHS attempts to marginalize us and label us as extremists. If it is "extreme" to hold pro-life, pro-veteran, or pro-Second Amendment views, then I wear the term "Right-wing Extremist" as a badge of honor! If you would like to receive a free card, go here:

Pastor-silencing bill in Congress

Perhaps you heard about the effort in Congress to pass so-called "Hate Crimes" legislation that is a stepping-stone to regulating the speech of people who support family values.

I just signed a petition to stop such "hate speech" laws from going into effect. Congress is getting ready to vote on this issue and I understand this bill could be passed quickly unless citizens rise up. 

Please join me. Go here to sign:
