Decoration Day or Memorial Day

May 27, 2017

On May 5th 1868, General John A. Logan declared that May 30th would be known as Decoration Day Nation wide, that date was chosen because it held no significance as an anniversary of any past battle in America.

This day is set aside for the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice by giving their all, its also to honor those who are currently serving and for those who have served in the military for this nation willing and for those who were drafted as well.

We have places in this country who are attempting to whitewash history by removing monuments to soldiers and generals and important figures from the civil war. It is because of the civil war that we have Decoration Day/Memorial Day, the civil war was not fought over slavery but it eventually has been taught that is all it was about.

Prior to the start of the civil war, the federal government was taxing raw products and finished products that came from the southern states. The representatives in the house and in the senate told the federal government that if the excess taxation did not stop that they would leave the union and form their on nation. About that time the southern states were also looking at freeing all slaves and giving each male slave a 1/4 or 1/2 acre for each year they lived on a plantation.

In President Lincoln’s own words “we can not let the southern states leave for they fund the federal government” The federal government struck first by invading the southern states to prevent succession of the southern states.

President Lincoln issued the Emancepation Proclamation, on January 1st 1863, freeing all slaves, there was caveat to his speech, it only affected the slaves in the southern states while the civil war was going on. It wasn’t until 4 years later that the slaves in the northern states and southern states that was loyal to the union were freed.

Prior to the civil war as I had stated the southern states were looking into freeing the slaves the same at Russia had in 1859. Prior to Lincoln starting the war with a surprise attack on Charleston harbor on April 8th 1861, to occupy Fort Sumter which at that time was a federal tax collection fort. The southern states were starting the process of freeing the slaves. The occupation of Fort Sumter by the federal government military and navy altered that course of action by the southern states.

After the civil war had ended and congress initiated the process of reconstruction which in turn allowed for people from the northern states to move to the southern states became known as carpet baggers. It as during the era of reconstruction that majority of the representatives from the southern states were former slaves that were freed by Lincoln’s emancipation proclamation. The southern Democratic Party had created its response to the reconstruction time period which became known as the KKK party.

The klan was created as a response to the northern states using reconstruction era to have blacks in congress. The klan terroized and even killed blacks to get their point across. Up until the civil rights bill as passed by congress in the 1960’s, there was 7 other attempts to pass civil rights legislation by congress but the democrats in congress blocked them all.

It as the democrats that created the Jim Crow laws, the separate but equal education system, the whites only and blacks only laws. It was the democrats in power in the southern states that used the police, the police dogs, water cannons, and the states national guards against the civil rights marchers in the late 1950’s and the early 1960’s.

The civil rights bill that was voted on in the house in 1964 was filibustered by Al Gore Sr in the senate until another senator from Minnesota rewrote several sections that dealt with voting rights, the original version ould enshrine in the constitution the right to vote regardless color, religion, or gender, the rewritten version had it so that the senate had to revote on the voting rights act every so often, that is when enough democrats in the senate agreed to vote to pass the civil rights bill so the president could sign it into law.

What is now known as Memorial Day is because of the civil war, there were to many men killed during the civil war and to think we have people who have been elected feel it’s their right to remove monuments and to erase history because a few are offended by our nations past. To erase our past means that we as a nation are bound to repeat history. We need to embrace our past so that we do not repeat our past, but we are on the verge of repeating our past because a single political party prefers to keep groups of people as 2nd class citizens so that they will keep voting for them.

The civil war was not fought to keep a political party in power but to keep a young nation as a whole, every single soldier who has given their all in battle or in defense of this nation should be honored as well as those who are currently serving in the military and those who served and those who have retired from the military for they truly know what sacrifice truly means.

The song “If Your Reading This” best fits the term “giving it all”
It as first sung by Tim McGraw in 2007

If You’re Reading This
Tim McGraw
Lyrics
If you’re reading this
My Mommas sittin there
Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here
Sure wish I
Could give you one more kiss
And war was just a game we played when we were kids
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up boots
I’m up here with God and we’re both watching over you
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading this
Half way around the world
I won’t be there
To see the birth of our little girl
I hope she looks like you
I hope she fights like me
Stand up for the innocent and weak
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up boots
Tell dad I don’t regret that I followed in his shoes
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading this
There’s going to come a day
When you’ll move on
And find some one else
And that’s OK
Just remember this
I’m in a better place
Where soldiers live in peace
And angels sing amazing grace
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home

There is another song that I will post the lyrics to as well for the soldiers who are still living, that fits them.

It’s sung by Toby Keith the title is American Soldier

Lyrics
I’m just trying to be a father,
Raise a daughter and a son,
Be a lover to their mother,
Everything to everyone.
Up and at ’em bright and early,
I’m all business in my suit,
Yeah, I’m dressed up for success,
From my head down to my boots.
I don’t do it for money
There’s bills that I can’t pay.
I don’t do it for the glory,
I just do it anyway.
Providing for our future’s my responsibility,
Yeah I’m real good under pressure,
Being all that I can be.
And I can’t call in sick on Mondays
When the weekends been too strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growls at the door,
Hey, I’m solid, hey I’m steady,
Hey I’m true down to the core.
And I will always do my duty,
No matter what the price,
I’ve counted up the cost,
I know the sacrifice.
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you,
But if dyin’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with honor,
‘Cause freedom don’t come free.
I’m an American soldier, an American,
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right,
I’m out here on the front lines,
So you can sleep in peace tonight.
American soldier, I’m an American,
American soldier,
An American

I found the soldiers Creed and its a good one and i hope that I am not offending anyone by just changing one word in the creed for it is meant to honor all soldiers.

A Soldiers Creed

I am an American Soldier.
I am a member of the United States Military – a protector of the greatest nation on earth.
Because I am proud of the uniform I wear, I will always act in ways creditable to the military service and the nation it is sworn to guard.
I am proud of my own organization. I will do all I can to make it the finest Military.
I will be loyal to those under whom I serve. I will do my full part to carry out orders and instructions given to me or my unit.
As a soldier, I realize that I am a member of a time-honored profession—that I am doing my share to keep alive the principles of freedom for which my country stands.
No matter what the situation I am in, I will never do anything, for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country.
I will use every means I have, even beyond the line of duty, to restrain my comrades from actions disgraceful to themselves and to the uniform.
I am proud of my country and its flag.
I will try to make the people of this nation proud of the service I represent, for I am an American Soldier.

Thank you for taking the time to read my view on Decoration Day/Memorial Day,
A ordinary mans view.

The Big Lie

April 7, 2017

What’s surprising is for almost 6 months now the media and the Democratic Party has been feeding a lie to the American voters. Past history of the senate rules were changed by Harry Reid during the 108th congress(2003-2004) that required all President George W Bush judicial federal nominees be required to get 60 votes to be confirmed. Prior to this liberal democratic senate rule change it only took 50 or 51 votes to confirm a judge to the federal position.

It was Harry Reid and the senate democrats intent never to let a conservative judge be confirmed that were nominated by President George W Bush. Harry Reid once again with the majority being the Democratic Party in the senate, Harry Reid again changed the rules in 2013 for district court judges and for the appellate courts. Harry Reid called it the nuclear option but in reality it was just going back to the rules in the senate prior to 2003.

Prior to the rules changes in 2003, the U.S. Constitution only required a super majority in the senate to do the following five things: 1) presidential vetoes, 2) removing or impeaching federal officials, 3) ratifying treaties with two-thirds voting in favor., 4) expelling congressional members either in the house or the senate., 5) Consititutional amendments

Harry Reid’s intense hatred of anything conservative was always on display when he was the senate majority leader. Harry Reid saw that the best way to further advance policies the american tax payers didnt like was the judicial branch if it couldn’t get past congress.

All this moaning by the media about wrecking the history of the senate is total garbage, harry reid did all that in 2003 and then again in 2013 just for two reasons political agenda and political ideology. Case in point is the court case that redefined what marriage was, the court case occurred because the democrats created all gays into being victims. It came to a boiling point when congress passed the bill D.O.M.A.(Defense of marriage act) willingly signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1996.

In reality all federal agencies could have rewritten regulations that permitted the recognition of gays being married without involving congress or the judicial branch. Because judges are appointed for life and can only be removed thru the impeachment process the judicial decisions often affect all americans nationwide. A small segment of gays who were tired of being the poster kid of victimization for the Democratic Party chose to go the judicial court route to get what they wanted after being lied to and bilked by the democrats for over 30 years.

It gets tiresome to hear over and over the untruths uttered by the legacy main stream media and the democrats on a daily basis. All Mitch McConnell is doing is bringing the senate judicial nominees rules back to pre-2003 and pre-harry reid.

E.E.O.C.

April 28, 2016

It is time for the EEOC to take the leap forward that the democrats have been complaining about for the past 100 years about equality in the work place.  It is time for the EEOC to do away with quotas in every way and form and function.

The EEOC can do something totally mind boggling that would make every liberal head spin by requiring all employers public and private by redoing the employment process that is currently used for one thing called quotas in the work place.

Its time to end the use of full names required on applications or resumes and require last names only.  It’s time to get rid of gender identity identification on applications.  It’s time to rid the application process of race related identification as well.

its time that applications should have at the top of every.  Application the following statement: The best qualified applicant will be selected for the job posted.

The application and resume should only have the following: first initial and last name only, instead of full name which will identify the applicants gender.

Remove the gender identity boxes

Remove race identifying on the application.

Remove age as well unless it is a job requirement of OSHA

Using the new system would require the employers to select which applicatants based on the qualifications in the resume and interview accordingly and have no preset notions of each applicant.

The New World AKA America

June 30, 2015

Before America became its own nation in its own right, slavery was brought to the new world by the following nations

Portuguese, Great Britain, French, Spanish and the Dutch Empire.  The first blacks came to America as indentured

servants,but soon all pretense was ended when those 5 nations had established outposts along the coast of the African

Continent. Those five nations started buying African slaves from local African leaders that had captured in raids from other

African tribes.  The local leaders saw that selling the slaves into slavery and taken away from the African continent was far

better than to outright kill the captured slaves.  Between 1607 and 1732 with the establishment of the 13 colonies so had

slavery been established by the 5 nations and until 1776 when the 13 colonies declared its independence as a new nation

slavery had been in America for 169 years.  Slavery existed legally in the states for another 85 years with the federal govt

turning a blind eye to it because the federal govt benefited from the sale of slaves in the south, even sold slaves in the

south on federal ships.

America had been founded on Judeo-Christain beliefs that concept today annoys every single liberal to their bones. The

Constitution includes a clause that has the liberals more upset than anything else, it prohibits the federal govt from creating

or establishing a national religion.  The fact that this nation was founded on judeo-christain beliefs means that we can learn

from our past and accept our past to become a better nation.  For the past fifty years liberals have been getting a free ride

when it comes to the past, it was conservatives that opposed slavery and they were concentrated for the most part in the

northern states, where as the liberals were the ones who held onto the notion that slavery was legally and morally accepted

in the world at that time, but there was a growing movement to free all slaves in 1860, but before that had happened Lincoln

invaded confederate states to keep them from leaving the union because it was the money from the southern states that

paid to keep the federal govt in business. ( The above information can be found but it does take time because the liberals hate the truth so they bury it deep, very deep. )

Today’s culture is to rewrite history so that the good history is removed and only the bad and horrendous are only taught

because this country is not exceptional because of how the nation was founded.  The liberals do not want the education of

the country has actually inspired other nations to expand the freedoms that they did not have prior to the formation of this

nation.  The founding Fathers decided it was the people who granted the govt. the powers to govern not the other way

around where the govt. ruled by decree and decided what rights the people were allowed.  In 1788 George Washington ran

for President against John Adams, Washington received the most electoral college votes, John Adams became George

Washington’s Vice President  under the rules of election in the constitution. George Washington served two terms until 1797

when John Adams was elected the 2nd President of the United States and the first ever peaceful hand over of power to

govern a nation.

This nation has given more opportunities to minorities to succeed than any other nation before, most of our amendments to

the constitution has some basis of the ten commandments in them, that is another reason why the democrats and the

liberals hate the country and the constitution.

I will be posting more to this as I read more about the history on this nation, that is the truth and not rewritten history  to

reflect how bad this nation is according to everything obama and the democrats and the tv media proclaims it to be.

Obama Lies Again

May 2, 2015

Since 1949, the federal government has spent nearly 495 billion dollars just on urban renewal in the cities across the

United States.  Over 300,000 communities have been ruined under the guise of urban renewal since 2010 the government

spends 9 billion on housing subsidies since 2000 on structures that are substandard and the federal herded U.S. citizens

into them knowing just how substandard the buildings are.  H.U.D., has been racked with scandal after scandal since its

inception from H.U.D. officials grafting and skimming the federal budget.  H.U.D., has been spending over 27 billion since

2000 on rental subsidies, scandals. The democrats have been using H.U.D. as a vehicle to get rich, the republican officials

have as well but but the democrats have had over 40 years experience in using federal agencies to enrich themselves.

States and cities that have been decimated by the democratic party used grants from H.U.D. under the guise of urban

renewal have ruined  neighborhoods thru the guise of a better city.  They raze perfectly good neighborhoods thru eminent

domain for the good of the city or state.  The cities have used eminent domain to line their pockets and take land away from

law abiding citizen in favor of high density living.which is proving to be just another boondoggle along with light rail transit

and heavy rail transit just another H.U.D. program under the guise of urban renewal.

On April 29th 2015 obama literally lied that the G.O.P. led house and senate have not spent enough on urban renewal,

since the current H.U.D. budget was agreed to last year and runs until august 2015 which is 45.5 billion this fiscal year.

H.U.D.s urban renewal program has ruined Baltimore more than it has helped, there are between 47 and 49 federal jobs

training centers in Baltimore which really are nothing but black holes for wasting federal monies.  The State of Maryland

income tax rate is average 5%.  The City of Baltimore taxes residents at 3.05%, if the democrats were serious about helping

the poor they would actually cut federal spending so that two parent families are not having to work just to live paycheck to

paycheck because of the every expanding federal spending budget.  Baltimore is having to repay 4 million is misspent

H.U.D. funding they must repay the funds from this years funding.

So when obama speaks just remember if he was Pinocchio his nose would stretch across America….

Joe Biden, Idiot Or Just Ignorant

February 25, 2015

Joe Biden, MOST incompetent vice president even more so than Al Gore, he stated in a speech that the govt must emancipate the peoples wealth, just as the democrats emancipated the slaves during the Civil War.

Last time I checked My history it was President Abrahman Lincoln who by presidential decree freed ended slavery while the democrats have done everything under the sun to bring back slavery and they have succeeded beyond theuir imagination by creating the economic slavery plantation.

They have another entire generation thinking that what the govt gives out is totally free such as the following

rental assistance

Medical coverage – subsidies – obamacare –

school: from kindergarten to college now

cars: cash for clunkers

Houses: Community Reinvestment Act: created the savings and loan scandal of the 1980’s, created the housing bubble in 2008, soon will cause another housing bubble again under new rules applied by congress in 2009.

credit scores: 2009 banking reform law: if your credit score is over 650 anytime you check it or it is checked then upto 10 points are taken and given to people with low credit scores

unempolyment benefits: no cut off or deadlines

welfare: all progress has been reversed from the welfare reform act of the 1990’s

Jobs: instead of working one fulltime job you will now need to work 2 jobs because employers are keeping the hours to under 30 hours to escape the penalty under obamacare.

Biden was talking about the 1% holding all the wealth but that is just smoke and mirrors, the democrats true target is the middle class because that is the segment of the population where the total wealth could run the federal govt for years.  Every action the democrats have passed into law has hurt the middle class and the poor making them more relient upon the federal govt.

The democrats  never emancipate anything or anyone, they just ENSLAVE them deeper to the federal govt.

Biden let the cat out of the bag by telling us that the democrats are going after the middle class wealth….

Just remember the DEMOCRATS have always been the party of slavery, they provoked a civil war to keep slavery….

Obama And Living On 15,000 A Year

January 22, 2015

In obama’s state of the union speech he dared congress to live on minimum wage for a year aka 15,000 a year

only one problem in his poorly written speech, regarding the total yearly income.  obama forgot that each state has

income taxes or none at all.  in states like New York and California  an individual will pay total taxes including federal

taxes.nearly 55% of their income (all federal income taxes, obamacare taxes, state taxes, county taxes, city taxes, sales

taxes, gas taxes, (some states the sugar tax), cigarette tax, property taxes(these pay for fire, police, school, infrastructure city

government, county government, roads) , (some states driving on the road tax), utility taxes(water, gas,land line phone, and

cell phone), prescription taxes, doctors office visits.

So basically a single person tries to live on 7,500 or less a year, and that barely gives the single person a chance to actually

live. From the number of federal programs that could be cut is outrageous, there are almost 50 or more federal jobs training

programs that overlap or duplicate older programs that are just as effective, you could cut 39 to 41 programs and nobody

would notice except for the federal employees union would.

I was living in a state that was taking the same as federal income taxes each month because I was single and making over

31,000 a year, I was placed into the top 10% income earners tax bracket all because I had no dependents and no

deductions. Total taxes that I was paying each month was 1600, I was paying 61% of my income in total taxes…….

I am now  living in a state to where I am able to start saving for my retirement, and start investing my spare money that that

it will help with my retirement when I do retire.

We have a federal government that uses what is called base line budgeting that builds in a 10% budget increase for the

next federal budget and when congress gives itself a pat on the back for cutting the federal budget all they are cutting is just

the pace of the increase, not actually cutting the budget. Under the years of Sequester the budget that was used the

federal budget 2007, less than 10 pennies on 100 dollars was lost on each federal agency budget…….

Obama dares congress to live on 15 grand a year, when all the vacations that he has taken is over 44 million dollars,

compared to George W, Bush his vacations cost the tax payers 4 million total…………

Talk about not walking the talk, he challenges others but wont do it himself, he was born with a a silver spoon in his mouth

and expects others to pay for his life style.

I challenge obama himself to live on 15 grand and nothing else pay for his gas when local in D.C., live on bag lunches and

eat ramen noodles 3 to 5 nights a week…….and live on peanut butter toast during the mornings and powdered milk and no

govt programs……….

But like all democrats they are all show and emotions but no substance or ideas to actually solve a problem….
