Hammers Required

My life has always been pretty simple in regards to those who like to run their mouths or give me unsolicited advice.

When something is said that I don’t like I tell the person to stop.

If they do it again I invite them to deal with this issue in a nonverbal way.

Most of the time as a child, adolescent, or an adult the idiots stop running their mouths.

Now this is not to say there haven’t been times when something was said that I didn’t catch right away or it just took me a little while to get angry.

On this issue I have no doubt EVERYONE knows what I am referring to.  That stupid comment some relative, friend, or co-worker said that you stewed on the rest of the day and sometimes even longer.

I don’t “stew” very well.

Never have.

If there is something you’ve said or done that irritated me I will deal with you as quickly as I can and purge you from my life.

Whether you like the way I deal with you, or not, is irrelevant.

Your mouth is causing you your problems, not me.

Sounds like you think you are some kind of tough guy Jason?

I’m not Pat Miletich but who is.

I have a brother from another mother with a nickname of Caveman who has been reminding me in person for a few years that I’m not even the toughest guy in the Rocklin, CA area but aside from UFC Hall of Famers or wrestling/grappling/jiu jitsu physical freaks of nature with nicknames like Caveman, I’ll be your Huckleberry.

That’s just my game.

Again this is the way I was raised and most Americans understand what I am saying but sadly things have changed dramatically in these United States.

The concept of live and let live coupled with turn the other cheek has created tens of millions of humans who believe they can say or do anything they want from their “safe spaces” without repercussion.

These safe spaces used to be their cars.

The problem these days are the cowards have graduated from their cars and onto the internet.

I cannot tell you how many “keyboard warriors” I’ve dealt with over the years.

I’ve heard it all.  If you can think it I have read it.

Now I put my columns up for FREE.  If you don’t like something you’ve read move on.

You may as well.

I just delete your comment and you from the page.

I read items on social media all the time that are lies, half-truths, or just wrong but I don’t comment negatively on these things.

On the net?

What’s the point?

I have a life.

In person I will gladly engage in providing knowledge to the ignorant.  If they don’t like it they can walk away or if they have enough courage take it to the next level.

Not once have I had someone attempt to do so in person.

Not once.

Maybe it’s because of my big smile.

I doubt it.

On the internet though it’s any entirely different world.

I’ve had people call me things that even in my most angered state have never come out of my mouth.  One time a rather disturbed soul said such vile things to me I told him, “I am easy to find. That is my name and my picture.  But when you coming looking pack two lunches.  I’m going to eat the first one and feed you the second.”

His response:  “You’re crazy.”

Lucky for him I’m not.  These weasels think they are safe behind their computer screens.

Finding them isn’t hard at all.

I didn’t bother to respond.

As stated earlier I’ve been called anything and everything and I am just one guy with a website and a decent presence on Facebook.

Imagine what Donald Trump goes through on a daily basis.

He’s been called a Nazi, a rapist, a child molester, and a traitor.

His wife and children have been attacked.

Twenty-four hours a day seven days a week hate is spewed at him on the Internet, television, and radio.

Well he’s President Jason.  He’s going to have to turn the other cheek.

Nope.

Not anymore.

That’s how we got here in the first place.

We are out of cheeks.

We are out of turns.

Actually THEY are out of turns.

It’s OUR turn as in it’s OUR country.

Liberals have taken advantage of our “kindness” and now believe we are weak.

I don’t care what Donald Trump tweets, states, or yells, I will back him every step of the way.

It’s time to choose sides.

Literally.

If the House actually puts his impeachment on the floor or somehow the 25th Amendment is attempted (which still goes to the House)  I will be on my way back to Washington D.C.

I won’t be alone.

That is our line in the sand and if this is attempted we must ensure it is not successful.

WE MUST ENSURE IT IS NOT SUCCESSFUL.

Many have asked over the years what will it take for Americans to rise up?  Who will make the call?

Any attempt at Trump’s impeachment is what it will take for me and although I will make the call right here I doubt I will be the only one.

Regardless it will be made.

We are coming off the 4th of July Weekend.

The Birthday of The United States.

The Declared Independence of Americans.

From this day forward let it be known that in order for a house to stand the nails must be driven purely, forcefully, and literally into the structure.

There are nails aplenty.

Hammers required.

Lunch will be provided.

Happy Birthday to the Red White and Blue

Born in Southern California every 4th of July celebration I can remember was pretty much the same.  Playing in the neighborhood all day while stopping to eat a wide variety of foods usually only available on holidays.  I’m sure some type of large firework show took place but I don’t really remember them.  I do remember Whistling Petes, Black Snakes, and Sparklers.  The acrid smell of smoke and burnt vegetation as a Spinning Flower once bounced off a street curb and into one of our neighbor’s ivy.

That left a mark.

It wasn’t too long after that my family moved to Trinity County.

Northern California.

Even back then things were different.

The hub of Trinity County was and is a town called Weaverville.  Those of you who’ve read Late Bird I’m sure recognize the name.

Weaverville is surrounded by little mill towns that hold anywhere from thirty to one hundred people each.

Certainly not sprawling metropolises.  Probably more coyotes than people and without a doubt more snakes and scorpions.

I sometimes laugh when I hear “snakes are more scared of you than you are of them.”

They should be.  We have a corpus callosum and opposable thumbs.

At least those of us who voted for Trump.

In Weaverville the 4th of July was an event because the citizens and community leaders loved the United States.

Flags and bunting decorated the town.

Red, white, and blue hats, shirts, and bandanas were found everywhere.

Veterans were shown respect because of their courage to serve, protect, and defend.

The same type of courage found more than two hundred years ago.

The courage of men and women who if caught would be hung as traitors to the Crown.

The term American back then was whispered by many as it could get you beaten, robbed, or killed by the English or those loyal to the King.

American heroes like Francis Marion known as the Swamp Fox and John Paul (I have not yet begun to fight) Jones engaged in the battle on land and sea and American legends like Nathan Hale were created when unmeasurable courage met an unbreakable noose.

In the name of the United States.

In the name of Freedom.

Fireworks are a large part of most 4th of July celebrations.  Many ooh and aah at them.  I have done so as well.  We are gifted with their visual beauty because nothing horrific follows the streaking of light through the sky followed by a large explosion.

“And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.”

The flag was still there but many Americans were not and would never see the Stars and Stripes ever again because “Don’t tread on me” actually meant DON’T TREAD ON ME.

I hope each and every one of you enjoy your 4th of July celebrations.

My point of this article is to continue the knowledge, lessons, and stories that were given to me by my parents, teachers, and books.

That before we partake in the ice cream, hot dogs, and apple pie we pause for a moment or two to appreciate those who made it possible that we see fireworks as a beautiful sight because we don’t live in a war zone.

That before we run off to the lake to barbecue and swim that we say thank you to the Big Fella Upstairs for whom this nation was found under.

That before the carnivals start, the cotton candy sticks to too many little faces, that before the rockets red glare, we understand the ultimate truth.

Freedom isn’t Free.

Thank you Dad

In this day and age the verbiage used in everyday discussion is neglect and void.

Neglect of substance.

Void of humility.

Too many are self-proclaimed “geniuses” or “experts” or the “greatest of all time”.

Lost souls referring to themselves as God, Jesus, or followers of Bernie Sanders .

Oy vey.

It appears the axiom “there are no new thoughts, only those new to thinking” is right as the rain.

Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.

I have never had much usage for overindulgent vernacular, nor found those who needed it, to be of any use at all.

I’ve always believed in action rather than blather.

In right over wrong.

Truth over lies.

Good over evil.

In fact Good is the ultimate prize to my way of thinking.

We have millions of written documents but only one is referenced as the Good Book.

Good morning, good afternoon, and good night set the tone and temperance for a quality 24 hour period.

“Good morning America how are ya?”

This would be a very difficult answer for me to give in these current times if not for one thing.

I was raised by a GOOD man.

I was raised by a man whom I watched work three jobs to make sure our family was fed.

I was raised by a man who never once complained while he drove a tractor trailer for almost a year on a broken leg to make sure his family had a roof over our head.

I was raised by a man who told me I could do anything I wanted in this world, and because I could, I had the responsibility to do it, whatever it was, to the best of my ability.

“When someone gives you a job you give them more than they expect.  Be grateful.  They could have given that job to someone else.”

I was raised by a man who told me to never look for trouble but if it found you to hit first and hit hard.  “There are no winners in a fight but there will definitely be a loser.  You don’t want that to be you.”

Amen Dad.  Amen.

To be raised by a Good man isn’t always an easy thing.  There are expectations, requirements, and rules. There is right and wrong and when you are raised by a Good man you better be right and more importantly you better not be wrong.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When one is raised by a Good man fear is a very real thing.

Fear of ever letting him down.

I hope while you are reading this Dad you smile and nod and understand how loved you are.  Because of you I understand the definition of unconditional.

It’s easy to write things about Good men but I know this particular man will find them uncomfortable to read as with all Good men he is filled with grace, substance and humility.

Good Works over glad handling.

Peace over Pride and always at the front.

A Good man always fights the good fight because Good men must and a good fight is happening as I write this now.

To the man who left me a bear claw on my pillow on my fifth birthday.  You raised me to stand and fight and I stand with you.  We fight Dad and we win.

Just a few more weeks Hero and we will be victorious.

A good man can.

A good man must.

A good man will.

Happy Father’s Day Dad.

Thanks for being a Good Man.

Love,

Your son.

To be an American moral choices must be made

As always there is a lot going on in the world.  Information and misinformation flows continuously.  The days of taking anything at face value are long gone.  I’ve received many questions from concerned Americans about what is happening to our country and what they can do to stop this runaway train.  Of course voting properly is the key but as we’ve all seen even doing this still doesn’t guarantee the correct decisions will be made.

Paul Ryan is the perfect example.

Yet here we are.  More questions than answers or answers that are incorrect, false, or outright lies.

How do we change this dynamic?

First we must understand our own needs.

For the most part water, food, and shelter is being fulfilled in these United States.

Security has slowly been weakening over the last three decades and is the primary reason Donald Trump was elected.

Still the reason we are having so much pain right now is the wildly damaging ways we are attempting to meet our need to belong.

For decades American children have been told such things as oral sex isn’t sex, marijuana isn’t bad for you or is the same as drinking beer or wine, debt and deficits don’t matter, food is comfort, and certain crimes are acceptable.

Think about that as a lifestyle.

Sex, drugs, debt, criminality, and EBT cards.

Sounds like the Democratic Party.

Food is energy.  It isn’t comfort or love.  Love is the giving to others without expectation.

Hammering down a box of donuts isn’t love…or comfortable.

Talking about physical fitness and nutrition is now body shaming.

Type-Two Diabetes is now thought of as actual Diabetes.

It isn’t.

Diversity is no longer a responsible economic plan but rather synonymous with color of skin.

Bernie Sanders has become the voice of the millennials.

Black masks, black clothing, hijabs, and suppressing speech is now the measurement of fighting the “man”.

We wonder why the kids don’t want to talk to anyone anymore.

Energy is a physical thing.  It can be touched, used, and measured.

Your energy, and how much you have, depends upon your diet, amount of exercise, and your understanding of anatomy, specifically your own body.

All of this information is widely known and available at our fingertips.

What we do with it is the key.

“Government” isn’t our friend.  It never has been and never will be.

Until humans evolve into the process of “being” government will “be” a “necessary evil”.

Today’s government, especially in States like California and New York are no longer necessary yet are still evil.

La Raza, CAIR, and support for Hamas are all examples.

Sadly too many in these States do not recognize these names.

The hate, control, misogyny, bigotry and financial oppression raining down on American citizens in these States must be stopped.

Those who continue down the path of debt, drug usage, and obesity are now being hit with the reality of “only living once” as they are physically suffering and are clawing and screaming for things like medical care that they were unwilling to earn, causing others who have, to suffer by too many trying to live off systems, they never paid into.

What do we do?

We must understand the power of the Individual.  Your life is exactly what you make of it.  Each breath, each step, each word uttered must be put forward in service or in search of Freedom.

Only you can provide this.

The opportunity to do so has been granted by the generations before us.

We are Americans.

We must push forward to ensure that being an American always means more in America than it does around the world.

Freedom is a choice.

Choose wisely.

Your future, or whether you will have one, depends on it.

We can’t be Kind-Of-Free

It was the early nineties and some of my teammates and I were in a van riding to a baseball game in Southern California.  I don’t remember how the conversation began but one of my teammates started in about no longer being black but rather an African-American. This was the new verbiage being introduced reportedly by Jesse Jackson. I liked my teammate. He was kind of a quiet person (my kind of guy) who also happened to not play very much.  I always felt for the guys who didn’t play much.  It wasn’t like they didn’t want to be out there but this was college athletics not Little League.  The best play because most coaches need to win to keep their jobs.

I listened until he finished and then told him he was wrong.  As stated earlier I liked my teammate.  This wasn’t one of those yelling at each other conversations but I had facts (or so I thought) and I stated them clearly.

I had taken an anthropology class and in the class we had been taught that there were three types of humans.

Caucasoids, Mongoloids, and Negroids, not black, white, brown, or African-American.

I’d been given just enough information to sound as though I knew what I was talking about.

In today’s world this is called “education” and as we know “education” and knowledge are two different things.

We are Homo sapiens.

Colloquially known as humans.

This doesn’t change regardless of the color of our skin, the size of our skulls, one’s like or dislike of certain foods, or our ability or inability to dance.

Races created because of sociological or “social construct theory” is pure propaganda otherwise Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal would both have created different “races”.

The conversation ended with my “facts”.  I truly believed everything I was saying (I’d been “educated”) and when you are using verbiage that others aren’t familiar with (cue Bernie Sanders followers) it’s pretty easy to sound as though you are right.  Furthermore I knew (on this I was correct) that African-American was not a new type of human, or a nationality, as there was no nation called the United States of Africa-America.

As college aged adults my teammate and I were both introduced to skin color bigotry.

Mine came from those who called themselves Professor.

His came from someone who called himself Reverend.

Is it any wonder most of have zero respect for many of our elders?

Whether it’s too many in the Catholic Church covering up sexual abuse (still happening), thousands of physicians medicating hang nails (still happening), or most of our politicians lying about EVERYTHING (still happening) the concept of fact, truth, respect, and ethics has disappeared a long time ago.

I digress.

As stated earlier my teammate and I were both given false verbiage based on the color of a human’s skin.  Sadly this has only gotten worse.

Examples?

Of course.

How about Latino?  When asked what a Latino is, you will hear it all, including it is a “culture”.

What do you mean by culture?

Many will answer, “It’s the language spoken, the food, the music, etc.  The “culture”.”

Okay, so then Latinos would speak Latin right?

“Uh no…they speak Spanish,” is the usual response.

Then why are they called Latinos?

This is usually followed by a blank stare or “they come from Latin America,” with an eye roll.

You mean Central America?  What about South America? What about Mexico?

Return of blank stare.

Let’s come back to that one.  How about this?  Are Brazilians Latino?

“Yes. Brazilians are Latino,” they answer emphatically.

You know Brazilians speak predominately Portuguese?

“Uh…no I didn’t know that.”

You also mentioned food.  What exactly do you mean by that?

“You know, beans, rice, salsa, guacamole, hispanic food.” (Incredibly these conversations happen every day.  In fact every single one of us has heard a version of it over the airwaves in America. Taco Bell tells us repeatedly to “Make a run for the border”)

I like and consume all of those things.  If I eat them am I a Latino?

“NO!”

What if I eat all of those things and speak Spanish am I now a Latino?

“NO!”

Why not?

“Because you are white.”

There we have it.

The term Latino is skin color bigotry.

It means brown skin (La Raza) and for those of you who are a bit skeptical, this type of conversation happens every day in homes, businesses, on busses, and most commonly on-line.  We hear it about hair straightening, rap lyrics, or the media trying to feed us that the “Chinese people are boiling mad because one of their own was dragged off of a plane”.

The individual dragged off the United plane was reportedly from Vietnam but I guess “they all look the same” to the press.

Hence the term Asian-American.

More skin color bigotry and completely false as there is no nation called the United States of Asia-America.

Everything I just stated is completely true but because too many Americans are infested with another form of skin color bigotry known as “White Guilt” (yes this is actually a title of a book) the United States is not only struggling as a country but as a People as well.

As Americans.

As Humans attempting to Be.

Skin color has nothing to do with success or failure regardless of your personal opinion.  If this were true humans would group themselves by their own skin color and live happily ever after.

Both of these issues are based on behavior, not the evolutionary process of proximity to the sun over tens if not hundreds of thousands of years, but it takes a willingness to embrace the truth to stop all this ridiculousness.

Truth.

Something that will not happen as long as we continue to hyphenate these United States.

If after all this you still choose to put African, Asian, Irish, Mexican, or Guatemalan before American I STRONGLY suggest you search out those continents or countries and live there.

This is a FREE society, as in you are FREE to leave, at any time.

Your presence isn’t required or needed.

If after all this, skin color is your primary issue, I STRONGLY suggest you search out countries with humans whom you believe look like you.

Regardless of your color there are lots of options.

Your Constitutional Rights will disappear, protection by the most powerful military in the world will hasten to exist, a job might be hard to come by and water might be scarce but the color of your skin won’t matter anymore.  Your life won’t get better because of it, as it is behavior that will still dictate this, but OUR lives in America will benefit, as your behavior, is removed.

If after all this you still choose to put Islam or Muslim in front of American I STRONGLY suggest you search out those countries that practice Sunni or Shiite Islam and are ruled by Sharia.  Your life will get dramatically worse as living under systemic oppression always has that effect but you can remove the American completely along with many of your “rights” as men, most of your “rights” as women and all of your Constitutional Rights as an American.

Finally if you choose to put Hispanic or Latino in front of American I STRONGLY suggest you stop as neither of these places are in existence.

Jesse Jackson is a bonafide moron to assume that only humans with black skin live on the continent of Africa but at least Africa can be found on a map.

The usage of Hispanic and Latino might be worse for those who use them, as they are both fictional labels created by hateful souls, whom have brainwashed too many humans, who are simply looking to meet their need to belong.

One last thought.  There’s no such thing as Native-American.

They’re called Chippewa, Seminole, Kickapoo, Apache, or wait for it…AMERICAN.

Hyphens are suppose to connect words, to bring ideas together, and by doing so, strengthen the concept.

They aren’t meant to be used to push the agenda of one by negating the other.

We can’t be Kind-Of-Free.

We are free or we are not.

We are Americans or we are not.

Freedom First.  Freedom Only.

America First.

AMERICAN ONLY.

Liberals in La La Land

Liberals before the Obama “red line” in Syria was enforced:

“Trump is a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigot who was elected because of Vladimir Putin.”

Liberals after:

“The bombs are beautiful (cue Brian Williams), Mr. Trump is now our President. Vladimir who?”

Liberals 24 hours later:

“Trump is getting us into a war with Russia.”

Liberals lost in space:

“Trump is wagging the dog.  I told you he was in Putin’s pocket.”

How about another?

Liberals on both coasts before an election on Tuesday to replace now CIA Director Mike Pompeo in the Kansas 4th Congressional District:

“We are winning and going to send a message to the hateful bigoted Trump!”

Liberals on both coasts after the election:

“The Republican candidate only won by seven points! We are on our way back!”

Once and for all it is time to proclaim that liberals are not Americans or sane.

Those that support La Raza, CAIR, Hamas, and create Sanctuary Cities to protect the free flow of human carnage through our open border by gangs like MS-13 are traitors and ignorant traitors at that.

Can’t we all just get along?

No.

I will never “get along” with child abuse, with rape, with human trafficking.

I will never “get along” with murder.

Benedict Arnold is probably the most famous American traitor of all time.  He wasn’t stupid.  He was ethically weak and because of this is now looked upon with scorn, at least by those of us who support America, and have heard of him.

Of course unlike brain dead Brian, Benedict Arnold was actually “under fire” and wounded in battle.

Something Williams and Hillary only dream of and then say out loud.

Liberals are stupid and I mean that in the strictest of definitions in that they are unable to learn.  What we have witnessed and continue to witness is the biological devolution of certain portions of the population in these United States.

A new version of Stockholm Syndrome has arrived due to too much tuning in, turning on, and dropping out combined with participation trophies and zero consequences.

They aren’t snowflakes.

They’re just flakes.

Then again how would a liberal know?

Punxsutawney Phil has a better understanding of the world.

Jason, you are being pretty Viagra on them right now.

I’m not being hard enough. (Thanks to the “mainstream media” and millions in advertising, I don’t have to explain that joke)

No American woman (or women in general) should ever support Islam.

No one who is homosexual should ever support Islam.

No one who is Jewish or connected to Judaism in any way should ever support Islam yet tens of millions of voting Americans who fall under these categories support the Party (Democratic) that supports Islam.

Let’s make this painfully clear.

Abortion is ILLEGAL under Islamic or Sharia Law yet that is the most important issue to tens of millions of Democratic voters.

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?

Can’t you just see it now?  Finally a hand is raised from the liberal brethren (look it up libs) with a quizzical stare.

“What is Sharia Law? Who is this Shari person?”

Progressives don’t know who “Shari” is, or why she has her own laws, but they can tell you all about Kanye and Kim because Enquiring Minds want to know.

If the concept of devolving hasn’t already been shown, the stupidity of wearing black masks and make believe vaginas (on their heads, obviously a health and human services class is needed for these poor souls), should be more than enough to group these cowards into the five cans short of a six pack, one fry short of a happy meal, or a sandwich short of a picnic crowd.

In other words utensils not needed for those who don’t understand opposable thumbs.

The black mask stick carriers were too embarrassed to show their faces (hope for them yet) whereas the make believe vagina enthusiasts were loud and proud and traipsing around, with the Material Girl and the less talented Judd sister, cheering on Like a Virgin’s call for murder.

Maybe they were practicing for their ultimate show, 72 at a time, as each Sunni or Shiite male arrives at the gates of Allah or the Eight Doors of Jannah.

Apparently eight is enough.

Where is Dick Van Patten when you need him? What about Adam Rich? How many more entertainment references can I put in this column?

Astonishingly enough this is reading like a stand up comedy routine and yet is putridly all TRUE.

Fortunately Hope, along with Obama, has left the building.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Now am I thrilled with everything the President has done so far?

No I am not.

Keeping Comey is absurd.  Hiring Priebus was as well.

Choosing Paul Ryan over the Freedom Caucus probably won’t work.

Supporting Janet Yellen definitely will not.

Still let us remember who we are.

We are Americans.

We don’t hope.  We don’t wish.

We get things done.

So in celebration of getting things done let us remember why we elected Donald Trump.

“I will build a big beautiful wall and get rid of the bad hombres.”

Get er done Mr. President.

Get er done.

Firing with both fists

Courage is not assertion without fear.

Courage is assertion in spite of fear and comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes.

I was reminded of this a few days ago while having a conversation.

The individual I was speaking with was making jokes after receiving yet another round of chemotherapy.  Because this person is incredibly private and humble, and would be embarrassed by my words, I will respect their wishes of privacy and not use their name.

Their life on the other hand is one to share.

You see this is the kind of person who creates safe spaces with his presence.

Children and dogs love him because they instinctively know they are secure and protected.

This is the kind of person who enlisted in the Army at seventeen and became a medic.

Always looking out for others.

He owned businesses, raised a family, loves his children, grandchildren, and of course his wife.  He’d give you the shirt off his back, the money from his pocket, and has done so time and time again.

Of course if he was reading this now he wouldn’t understand what all the fuss was about and would say something like, “This is what we are supposed to do.  I’m supposed to work hard.  I’m supposed to raise my children and nobody else better be loving my wife.  You know what I’m saying?”

Yes my fellow American I am picking up what you are putting down.

He’d tell you that he isn’t special (he is) rather he is lucky.  Lucky to be a citizen of the greatest country ever.  Lucky to have had 69 years (and counting) on this Earth.  He sees his exhaustion, nausea, dizziness, and pain as a good sign that the chemo is working.

Not one complaint, not one bitter word, not a scintilla of why me?

Although he doesn’t eat sugar, and his appetite has almost disappeared, he still makes birthday cakes for loved ones.

The reason I am telling this story is to show the strength of the human spirit.

The strength of one man unwilling to bend.

Unwilling to break.

When he was told he had cancer his first sentence was “Great. When can we start doing what needs to be done.”

In boxing terms he bit down on his mouthpiece and lunged forward firing with both fists.

Cancer has no idea but it doesn’t have a chance.

It picked the wrong guy.

We have our own cancer in America these days.  It’s called liberalism.  It has overtaken the Democratic Party and done a pretty good job infiltrating the Republican Party as well.

Standing in front of America is a 69 year old man whose body is being filled with drugs aimed at killing the cancer.

Dizzy, nauseous, and exhausted he stands at the ready to make sure we do “what needs to be done”.

He’s also a man filled with knowledge.

In other words he voted for Trump.

Shoulder to shoulder America.

It’s time to bite down on the mouthpiece and lunge forward.

Firing with both fists.

What am I going to do for you?

A conversation took place a while ago.

If you get elected what are you going to do for me?

My answer was simple.

I’m not going to do anything for you.

You are going to do for you!

If elected I am going to go to DC and stop the lies and corruption that are eating away at our country so YOU can live your life with liberty and pursue happiness to the best of your ability!

I continued.

Your greatest asset or largest liability can be found in the mirror every morning…if you have the courage to look.

Take a good look!!!

Besides, I continued, you are asking the wrong question.

It’s not what I am going to do for you it’s what are you going to do for others?

I don’t remember there being much of a response.

Of course this could have been because of my non verbal cues flashing an incredible irritancy.

Then again who knows these days?

With a good portion of the population conditioned to believe they “deserve” things rather than having to earn them the person asking the question could have been genuinely surprised as this may have been the first time they’d ever been told the truth.

Regardless if I get the question again, and keep my temper in check, my answer will be this.

I am going to continue to work hard, save my money, and be beneficial to others, or in other words, lead by example.

My mirror works just fine because the reflection in it says only one thing.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

Okay…two things.
