    A special shout out to all who served, and to all who made the ultimate sacrifice. Your service can never be fully understood by many of us, but we know enough to respect and appreciate what you've given.

    Thank you thank you thank you



    RIP Dad
    Living & loving life, despite the bumps. Always stay humble and kind.

    This weekend is unlike many others in our lifetime and for very different reasons

    This weekend is the first weekend many of us get to start reliving and rebuilding our lives, enjoying the freedoms we're blessed with

    Have a great weekend, enjoy your families and friends, and stay safe (by that I mean no DUI's )

    All the best to my American friends and Veterans.
    How did a generation raised on South Park and Family Guy become sooooo sensitive?

    You can’t tell a vet just by looking. What is a vet?

    He is a cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn’t run out of fuel

    He is the bar room loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th parallel

    She or he is the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang

    He is the POW that went away one person and came back another - or didn’t come back at all

    He is the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat, but has saved countless lives by turning no-account rednecks and gang members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other’s backs

    He is the parade - riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand

    He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals pass him by

    He is the three anonymous heroes in the Tomb of the Unknowns, whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies unrecognized with them in the battlefield or in the oceans sunless deep

    He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket - palsied now and aggravatingly slow - who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and wishes all day long his wife was still alive to hold him when the nightmares come

    He is an ordinary yet extraordinary human being - a person who offered some of his life’s most vital years in the service of his country, and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice theirs

    He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known

    So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean over and say, “Thank You”

    Happy Memorial Day Willie. I'd say it's a time to celebrate those that gave us our freedom, and mourn those who are so quick to give it up.

    The New York Times cover rejects this selfishness and reminds us that we are all in this together… or should be. At least, this has been our principle in our better moments, and some people have taken it quite seriously indeed. On Monday, Memorial Day, we will honor those young men and women who did not believe that being an American meant refusing to inconvenience themselves to help their neighbors.



    Instead, to protect their fellow Americans, they laid down their lives.


    We should really think about this day in regards to what is going on currently as well. Being respectful and considerate goes a long way. In today’s times it may save someone’s life.
    If I slide thru....I wouldn’t be there if I was you

    Don’t say I never taught you anything

    Not true because if they thought like me they wouldn’t have waited until March 11th to stop the games.

    So you can throw that out the window. Let’s try again....


    If billion dollar businesses have no direction and have to decide for themselves....they will wait until the last possible second. As evident of what happened in Utah/OKC. They waited until a player had contracted it and spread it before shutting everything down.


    No doubt in my mind if Obama was President during this he would’ve advised to close sports down at least 5 days earlier. At least.

    We will honor those young men and women who did not believe that being an American meant infringing upon others right to earn a living, take care of their families, and put food on their table.

    We will honor those young men and women that didn't allow a fear mongering media to dissuade them from continuing on with their lives and falling prey to brainwashing about an infectious disease that results are showing is not producing the numbers their outrageous models predicted.

    We will honor those young men and women that allowed us to use our own critical thinking skills and use a rational thought process to make decisions about our own lives.

    In other words.....FREEDOM!
