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.

California

May 1, 2016

I am not surprised that the media is all agog in regards to the illegals rioting in Costa Mesa all because Donald Trump went to speak and exercise his right to freedom of speech.  Because the illegals disagree with his speeches they have the right to riot and destroy public and private property in Costa Mesa.

Freedom of speech is for everyone as long as you are a progressive, liberal, democrat, socialist, and or illegals.  If you are a conservative in anyway form or fashion your right of free speech or the right to gather or assemble for meetings and or conventions of any kind that is never to be tolerated.  Proof is in the media and they are glorifying the rioting and blaming trump for his speeches, for the cause of the riots.

If a republican or conservative disagrees with a democrat, liberal and or progressive they are considered to racist, homophobic, religion hating, and gender hating.  If a conservative disagrees with Obama regarding his politics that person is considered 100% racist.

I do not feel that a person breaking our nations laws by entering this nation illegally should not be rewarded and we need to get rid of the notion that if you are an illegal and your baby is born an American citizen, that was already decided by the Supreme Court that citizenship is passed onto your children only if one or both parents are already citizens of the United States.

The illegals should be arrested for making threats against legal citizens and legal immigrants who wish to have legal political rallies that the illegals disagree with so they have threatened to use violent demonstrations and rioting to disrupt all and any rallies for Donald Trump.  What’s fascinating is you do not see republican or conservative to even libertarians using violence at any Hillary or Bernie political rallies.

Hillary and Bernie are both accomplices to those who are using violence and riots because they disagree with what Trump is saying in his political speeches.  So if you disagree with Trump it is okay to destroy both public and private property because you do not hear or see either Hillary or Bernie asking their followers to stop the rioting it’s more of a wink and nod to those who riot.

Just because Trump is making speeches that people disagree with that does not give them the right to riot in the first place.  Demonstrate peacefully to get your point across, is more effective than rioting, Dr. Martin Luther King had the right approach. Demonstrate peacefully and let the other side commit the violence, during the civil rights marches you had the democrats fighting back with the police and national guard against peaceful demonstrators.  Dr. Martin Luther King had all peace marchers sign pledge cards not to respond with violence no matter what happens.

It’s time for those that are here illegally to go home demonstrate against their own governments, instead of demanding the right to vote and live in a country where they are living illegally.

The Media And The Democrats Lie Again

March 31, 2015

The latest attack on conservatism has been happening since the Governor of Indiana,
signed into law a bill that is nearly 100% identical to the bill that then president
bill clinton signed into law in 1993. The law that I am referring to is the Freedom Of Restoration Act that then president bill clinton signed into law and 25 other states had signed into law similar or identical to the federal law.

Here is a little bit of history on the bill that was signed into law by then president bill clinton, a group of native american indians were arrested and jailed for possession of peyote that they stated was for religious purposes. In 1993 when the democrats held congress and the presidency the bill Religious Of Freedom Restoration Act was passed with near 100% in the house and near 100% in the senate and bill clinton signing it into law.

Now that a Republican Governor and Republican legislature have passed the nearly identical Religious Freedom Restoration Act to the Federal version is to be deemed discriminatory against gays, lesbians, transgender but yet wont protest the same federal law that has been on the books since 1993. Here is the Federal Law Link, and Indiana’s law Link, as you can tell the laws are nearly identical the only issue is that a Republican Governor did the same thing that the democrats rushed to protect the use of peyote by native american indians.

Now that liberals are having to deal with the state of Indiana having the same law on their state law books, they had to come up with a farce of claiming discrimination and will not allow the truth to be known. The law has what is called the Sherbert Test which mandates strict scrutiny if a law has violated the freedom of religion in the 1st amendment.

liberals and democrats and the media hate that a state with a republican governor, and state controlled legislature are applying the same federal law and having it on the state law books. They now see this law only in one light and will not accept any other story line other than it is based on allowing sexual discrimination against gays and lesbians and transgendered.

Colorado does not have this law on their books and case in point is when a lesbian couple knowing full well that a specific bakery ran their bakery based on their religious beliefs. They went in and tried ordering a wedding cake knowing that they would be turned down for the cake only, for years they had been customers for other bakery items. The couple never turned them away from buying any of their products they only turned them down for the wedding cake based on their religious values and beliefs. They were put out of business by the lesbian couple complaining to the state for the bakeries discrimination against them based on sexual orientation.

This law in Indiana now has the state making sure that bills passed and signed into laws do not encroach on the first amendment of the Constitution. George Stephanopoulos on ABC tried to redirect the interview many times by implying that the law was blatantly discriminatory only against gays and lesbians. The Governor would have nothing to do with that tactic and kept on message and even educating George that the same law was passed by the democrats and signed into law by bill clinton in 1993.

The democrats passed the bill in 1993 and signed into law the same year praised it for being all inclusive. Now that the law is being used for practical reasons and it fits squarely into conservative views and values they are in a catatonic state of anger that their law is being used for good.

Bill Clinton signed the bill into law in 1993 and obama voted for a nearly identical bill in 1998, democrats hate when a law can be used by conservatives in the same manner to protect individuals and businesses

This Law means that the person or business is considered innocent until the state can find that a law was not burdensome on a person or business now……..As does the Federal Law…….

THE NAZI STATE OF MINNESOTA

October 15, 2007

There was a time that Minnesota used to be a fantastic place to live and work, but slowly over the past 50 years the residents of the Nazi State of Minnesota, have seen the erosion of personal and property rights taken away thru the guise of healthier living and alleged dangers.

The latest is taking away the rights of individuals to smoke a cigarette in public and soon to be in private, and the property rights of business owners by enforcing some notion that people cant think for themselves when it comes to patronizing any establishment or businesses that allowed smoking.

The state has also allowed cities to decide what is more important between basic protection or some idea that government sanctioned social programs are better than Police,Fire, Sanitation, and public utilities, the quality of life and property rights that have been created by the current regime in the Nazi State of Minnesota  are in a nose dive due to choices made by the elitist elected to office who oppose personal and property rights by individuals.  They wish to create a class of people to be solely relying on the govt. to think for them, and make all the choices so that they wont ever have to for themselves.

Minnesotans no longer are allowed to think for themselves because it might be against the law.  I left the state and have never looked back, because I think and decide for myself and not worrying if the Nazi Thought Police aren’t around making sure that I don’t step out of the box.

The current radio and television ads that are proclaiming fresh air are based and false testimony and lies and it was admitted that the persons lied about which establishments they couldn’t attend because of the smoke presence endangered their lives.  Why would a political party even consider holding their convention in a state that doesn’t advocate personal responsibility.

The current slate of elected democrats see the people who are nothing more than cattle to tax them while they work to take away more of individuals paychecks, because individuals are smart enough to spend their money on their own.  Soon I will no longer have any attachment of any kind to the NAZI STATE OF MINNESOTA.  I will no longer have to support the liberals and the nazi democrats that live within the state borders.  Minnesota shouldn’t be thought of as the education state but as MINNESOTA MURDER INC. since the 1990’s there has been a upswing in murders in the twin cities and in outstate Minnesota because the state doesn’t allow safety for its citizens who live there.

REP. OBERSTAR CONTINUES TO ENRICH HIMSELF!!

August 12, 2007

Mr. Oberstar continues to steal from the American taxpayers to enrich himself by taxing, do you see him or his Democratic party offering to cut their pay, or to actually do work other than find ways and senseless reason to gouge the american taxpayer. Mr. Oberstar’s immediate response to the bridge collapsing is to raise the gas tax, to fund the repairs of the roads and bridges but it would then be turned to other forms of transit and not for the roads or bridges.

Mr Oberstar looks like he is not suffering with his many years at the trough of the taxpayers back pocket. He will not consider cutting his own pay or cutting needless and senseless govt. spending instead he wishes along with the other democrats in his party to take away our rights and freedoms.

Isn’t it time for Mr. Oberstar to find a real job instead of living on the backs of the American taxpayer. He hasn’t had a real job in over 30 years, his main goal in life is to live in the life of luxury by taxing Americans so that he can live his life of comfort.

I would have given applause to him had he stated that until all roads and bridges in the United States were back up to safe standards, that he will propose a bill to cut all house members pay by 15 percent to help pay for the repair efforts, and that he will propose that the house cut their extravagant retirement benefits and take social security just like the average American taxpayer when they retire.

Mr. Oberstar’s real goal in congress is to remake the United States into a western form of Europe.

Mr. Oberstar please go out and get a real private job that doesn’t include living off the American taxpayer, its time you stop stealing the taxpayers monies and misspending it needlessly.

The conditions of the roadways and bridges can be laid squarely at feet of the Democrats in congress both the house and senate, for their failure to spend the taxpayers money the way it should be spent and not on earmarks and pork barrel spending. How many kickbacks is Mr. Oberstar receiving for all his time in congress. Mr. Oberstar please leave congress you do us all a disservice by staying in congress, you are a cancer on the American society please stop taking away our rights and freedoms.

FREEDOM

July 4, 2007

I started my road to freedom on may 18, 2007th, that was the day I started working for my current company and they have me living on the road going from state to state. This has been quite fascinating and a stark change of state of mind for myself, I no longer had to walk on egg shells around my wife, and I could relax and since then. A lot has occurred that has made me realize the stress that I was under trying to see to her needs 24/7 day in and day out I no longer care about what she does even though I care, and love her dearly.

I have come to realize that we didn’t have a marriage but a co habitation living arrangement with the marriage document which in all was a sham on her part because she never once acted like she was married and tried very hard to keep me separate from her life, she didn’t want to have one checking account she stressed that we keep out monies in separate checking accounts, not once would she confide in what she wanted out of life in general, but make constant criticism of what i wasn’t doing right and mainly wrong. The latest is she sent an email that demanding that I no longer have contact with friends that I have made and contact with her side of the family.

Her parents don’t realize that she has been going down hill with the depression, she has been become quite adept at lying and deception. She has tried to make them believe that it is what I had done that made her decision to get a divorce, but I had been contemplating in leaving her and saying please get the divorce I cant stand being in this charade of a marriage because its more of a living arrangement to benefit her and only her. I feel hurt and abused emotionally and mentally, but the best thing that I can do is get the annulment from the church so that basically the marriage never truly was a marriage, but more of room mates living together she made it plain that we would literally never sleep in the same bed even after getting married, to me that isn’t a marriage at all. I tried to have her attend my side of the family functions but she made every attempt never to attend one function and if she did it was always that she became ill, I stopped making excuses for her and just said it laura what can I say. Her excuses were real flimsy at best but my family still welcomed her into the family no matter what.

It will soon be two months that I have been living on the road and the accusations by her have now started thank heavens I am not even in the same state as her, since we have separated I have been to our place to pick up my 3 suit cases, and garment bag, then to pick of some meds for my neck and therapy, and the final time to drop off a laptop that my oldest daughter will be picking up. and all three times I had called to inform her that i would be stopping by and to either pick stuff up or to drop something off, and I never stayed for more than 10 minutes at most. The further away from her I feel safer mentally and emotionally.

I have limited contact with her and she doesn’t know where I am at and I feel that it is in my best interest that she doesn’t know. I now wake up feeling that I have slept and not on edge the moment I wake because I never who I would wake up to each morning lately its been not the lady that I thought I had married but somebody else and a complete stranger filled with hatred because she wont accept responsibility for her actions, she always tries to make it so that she is and will always be the victim at all costs even if it means to do so will harm others.

Again i hope that her family recognizes the fact that the depression has gotten worse not better and that she needs a therapist that will see that she puts on a great act so that it will always be that she is the innocent bystander. I have my freedom by living on the road and no walking on egg shells for me an I feel relieved since then, I am calm not wondering what will set her off or that i have to be there for when she starts crying because of some alleged harm has befallen her. The relief is mind boggling to me, at first I thought that I wouldn’t know what to do, but I actually am relieved and I go for walks, work out, chat with normal people that I have to take care of emotionally. it feels like 500 lbs have fallen off my back.
