THE FINAL
INSPECTION
The Soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass..
‘Step forward now,Soldier ,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?’
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
‘No, Lord, I guess I ain’t.
Because those of us who carry guns,
 Can’t always be a saint.
I’ve had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear..
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.
I know I don’t deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears
If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
‘Step forward now, you Soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.’

PATRIOTS
It’s the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.
 
It’s the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
 
It’s the Soldier, not the politicians
That ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness..
 
It’s the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
 
Patriots,If it weren’t for the United States military,
there would be NO United States of America .
 
 JUST A REMINDER TO ALL FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS
Patriots,less than 1%of our entire population fight for us, less than 1% of the American population wear the uniforms of our military services.  Yet, there is a fairly large population of Americans that would not serve under any circumstance, you see they have been told it is their RIGHT to refuse service!
 
United States military are serving 3-4-5 combat tours in the middle east they are tired,broken, they have families too, they miss their girlfriends,boyfriends, their wives, their children, their country, yet they fight on.  
Our military is the best educated,motivated,military in the world and we should give them praise ever time that chance presents itself.!
GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES

OBAMA COMMANDER AND CHIEF A BOY AMONGST MEN

Michael Hastings’ new book, The Operators, jabs at what could be a vulnerable spot for the Obama Administration, the president’s relationship with the troops.

The book describes a visit to Baghdad:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official
who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me.

“Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my
eyes after I did.

These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take fu.king pictures with them?”

Gary Gatehouse Comments

I’m sure Code Pink and all those anti war left wing limp wristed Marxist are proud of what Obama done,shunning the military, I’m sure that all of those who sit on the Obama staff are proud of their fearless commander and chump.  

Ladies and gentlemen this is a prime example of who is in charge of our country, who is the commander and chief of armed forces -what he really thinks of our men and women in uniform.

Bottom line, anyone and I mean anyone who votes for this poor excuse for a human being again is damn sure not American!  

Vote for Obama and you vote for a Marxist you vote for someone who hates America, vote for Obama and you are are a communist supporter.

AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK!!

MAINSTREAM MEDIA DICTATING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC

11 Dec
MAINSTREAM MEDIA DICTATING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC
The East Coast Main Stream media (PRAVDA WEST)  still think they dictate to the American people all we should know about  POLITICAL issues via their established socialist media outlets ABC CBS NBC CNN PUBLIC BROADCASTING.

The mainstream media looks at we the people as dolts especially conservatives, we have to be guided through the presidential candidate selection process, the media knows it all, and we the great unwashed are just too damn stupid to make a decision on our own…

Well hell,here is a message to  all you East Coast talking heads, we the people (who have common sense) have figured you out, you don’t count anymore!

Have you heard of the WWW (internet) we conservatives get our news there.  We know today’s media  is nothing more than a propaganda machine built and ran by socialist tied to the hip of the socialist “Democrat Party”

Bottom Line, mainstream media take a hike you have lost all trust of we the people, take your propaganda,your spin,your lies,and stick em where the sun don’t shine…

PATRIOTS WE ARE LIVING IN VERY TRYING TIMES
WORDS HAVE MEANING

Never before in the history of our country have we been threatened by political,military armies working within the borders of our country.  We have Muslims that come here to change our country using our own constitution against us, we have large populations of illegal aliens residing in our country and neither of these groups have any allegiance to our constitution or our way of life. We have huge populations of gangs (mostly illegals) like MS-13 that have established themselves in most of our large cities, they are armed, they hate America, they are a ticking time bomb..

We have a political party (Democrat) that has finally came out of the political closet, they have shown their actions,deeds, spoken word,legislation, socialist,Marxist,communist affiliations that they are indeed working to bring this country down. They have declared political war on the American people..

Christians in our country (over 80% of the population say they are Christian) are being persecuted, the left has attacked our Christian beliefs, they have taken God out of our schools, they have taken God out of our government, they have taken God out of public events such as displaying the Nativity Scene on public grounds during Christmas. 


We have a so called mainstream media that is nothing more than a 24/7 propaganda machine for the left, for the Democrats, for Obama, they will not and do not report the news as it happened they report it as they see it with a left wing,socialist,Democrat supporting SPIN. 


We have a president through his actions and deeds and affiliations is a knows Marxist, and he is working overtime to hoodwink the American people.  We Patriots know he is not eligible to serve as president, and most of us believe the Republican Party knows he is not eligible to serve as president, yet they say and do nothing.

Obama, hoodwinked a large segment of the American population in 2008 with one buzz word CHANGE a word that appeals to many Americans,they were lost in the rhetoric of Obama and his slick presentation of words, we who have common sense know words mean things and the word “CHANGE” as used by Obama and his minions means change everything about our country, change our political approach to governing, change our constitution, change our very way of life.

We have heard Obama say many times that America is not fair, not everybody gets a fair shake, that we should spread the wealth around–SOCIALISM,he is speaking from, the ideology of Socialism/Marxism. Many dictators have used the word change to hoodwink whole populations Germany comes to mind,Hitler used the word CHANGE many many times is his speeches to the German people, they bought into it and we would read our history know the outcome of Hitler’s change.

This is not the time to hide our thoughts, our opinions, this is not the time to be complacent, this is not the time in our countries life to hide under our desk, this is not the time to expect others to carry the water…..

PATRIOTS as the old saying goes

“NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY”

A Christmas Poem

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS,
HE LIVED ALL ALONE,
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF
PLASTER AND STONE.

I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE,
AND TO SEE JUST WHO
IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.

I LOOKED ALL ABOUT,
A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS,
NOT EVEN A TREE.

NO STOCKING BY MANTLE,
JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES
OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.

WITH MEDALS AND BADGES,
AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT
CAME THROUGH MY MIND.

FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT,
IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER,
ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.

THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING,
SILENT, ALONE,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR
IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.

THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE,
THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED
A UNITED STATES SOLDIER.

WAS THIS THE HERO
OF WHOM I’D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO,
THE FLOOR FOR A BED?

I REALIZED THE FAMILIES
THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS
WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.

SOON ROUND THE WORLD,
THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE
A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.

THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM
EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS,
LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.

I COULDN’T HELP WONDER
HOW MANY LAY ALONE,
ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE
IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.

THE VERY THOUGHT
BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE,
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES
AND STARTED TO CRY.

THE SOLDIER AWAKENED
AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
‘SANTA DON’T CRY,
THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;

I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM,
I DON’T ASK FOR MORE,
MY LIFE IS MY GOD,
MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS.’

THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER
AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
I COULDN’T CONTROL IT,
I CONTINUED TO WEEP.

I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS,
SO SILENT AND STILL
AND WE BOTH SHIVERED
FROM THE COLD NIGHT’S CHILL.

I DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE
ON THAT COLD, DARK, NIGHT,
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR
SO WILLING TO FIGHT.

THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER,
WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE,
WHISPERED, ‘CARRY ON SANTA,
IT’S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE.’

ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH,
AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
‘MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND,!
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT.’

SHAME ON AMERICA SHAME ON OUR MEN AND WOMEN WHO SHUN AWAY FROM THEIR DUTY TO SERVE THE CAUSE OF AMERICAN FREEDOM

REMEMBER ONLY ONE PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION IS FIGHTING THE WAR AGAINST TERROR ONLY ONE PERCENT OF AMERICANS ARE DOING THE WORK OF PROTECTING US ALL.

He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists. He’s told he will be held over an  extra 2 months. 

You call your girlfriend and set a
date for tonight.
He waits for the mail to see if there
is a letter from home.

You hug and kiss your girlfriend,
like you do every day.
He holds his letter close and smells
his love’s perfume.

You roll your eyes as a baby cries.
He gets a letter with pictures of his
new child and wonders if they’ll ever meet.

You criticize your government, and
say that war never solves anything.
He sees the innocent tortured and
killed by their own people and
remembers why he is fighting.

You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.
He hears the gunfire, bombs and
screams of the wounded.

You see only what the media wants
you to see.
He sees the broken bodies lying
around him.

You are asked to do some thing by
your parents. You don’t.
He does exactly what he is told even
if it puts his life in danger.

You stay at home and watch TV.
He takes whatever time he is given
to call, write home, sleep, and eat.

You crawl into your soft bed, with
down pillows, and get comfortable.
He tries to sleep but gets awakened by mortars and helicopters all night long.


REMEMBER our Troops and their Families





All of us that have served our country on the battlefields of the world know a letter from home is gold, a picture of a loved one is a reminder of what we are fighting for.  

Patriots, our troops have been on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan for going on 11 years now, they have served countless tours.

They are fighting for our freedoms and while they are giving up everything our congressmen and senators play politics!






Please pray for our troops and their families, prayer will see them through this time and prayer will help those families who have lost loved ones in this war and past wars.

SUPPORT THE UNIVERSAL NATIONAL SERVICE ACT
((Rangel Reintroduces Measure to Impose a Draft))

Dear Colleague:

The test for Congress, particularly for those members who support the war, is to require all who enjoy the benefits of our democracy to contribute to the defense of the country. All of America’s children should share the risk of being placed in harm’s way. The reason is that so few families have a stake in the war which is being fought by other people’s children.

If there were a Universal National Service Act, there would be no shortage of troops to fill the ranks without repeatedly deploying the same exhausted troops over and over.

I urge you to support my legislation for the Universal National Service Act as a co-sponsor.

• Requires all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 if called upon by the President during a declaration of war, a national emergency or a military contingency operation to perform national service for a minimum of two years with few exceptions.

• Cuts down the number of deployments for active duty and reserve military units who now see multiple deployments during the course of their enlistment due to troop strength shortages.

Provides a National service to work education, health care, ports, security and other services as deemed necessary by the President.

• Benefits us ALL as Americans by helping ensure the United States is ready to protect and respond to our nation’s needs at home and abroad at times of peace, national emergency or war if necessary.

The question of whether we need a Universal National Service Act will be important as long as this country is placing thousands of its young men and women in harm’s way. We make decisions about war without worry over who fights them. Those who do the fighting have no choice; when the flag goes up, they salute and follow orders.

I urge each of you once again to cosponsor this bill as I bring it to the floor for legislation

***Fox News has obtained a copy of a “Dear Colleague” letter from Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y. in which he reintroduces a bill to require “national service” or a draft.

The letter comes on a day the House is debating a bill from Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, that would require the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

Rangel introduced a similar draft bill in 2004 but it failed in the House by a vote of 402-2.


Comments from Gary Gatehouse

Patriots, we all remember Obama saying he wanted a Civilian National Police force as large and as powerful as our military, could this act that Rangel is pushing be camouflage (cover) to create such a force?

Very strange indeed, is there a more sinister  motive here?  Don’t know, but I would not trust Charlie-Obama or any of those Marxist/Socialist in congress….
