Red Skelton's Pledge of Allegiance

God Bless the USA - Lee Greenwood

Letter to our Vets

Thank you beyond words to the Veterans of this great country. The sacrifices you have made and are making takes a love of America and the courage to stand up for the rights and  beliefs espoused by our founders. I know too many people take our freedoms for granted and don't even seem to notice us slowly loosing them. I for one and thankful and appreciate all you do.
Around the world America has been a beacon of freedom and sacrifice for the benefit of others. We are an exceptional country with an exceptional and unique beginning; we owe that in large part to our military and each person individually that takes that oath of service. We all built this country together and you represent us well.
So we set aside this day to honor you, but we need to remember to always thank you. I love to stop and shake the hand of our servicemen and, beyond that, our law enforcement and firefighters as well. They all give greatly to keep us safe.
Every day.
I'm proud to be an American and proud of what this country stands for. Thank you vets, you are greatly appreciated!

In just over a year we will be electing a new president. I don't know that I will stay sane as we go through the process. With the amount of people running it seems more like a circus at this point. This election is crucial to our countries' survival and I hope it's not too late to fix things.
It seems that so many Americans don't really know history and what makes America great. There is all this talk of socialism now. It's been tried. It fails. Everytime.
There is talk about equality and tolerance and heaven forbid someone gets offended by something, we wouldn't want anyone's feelings to be hurt. The liberal elite try to tell us we have to accommodate the one to the detriment of the rest. Behaviors that are commonly known as deviant are now pushed on us as normal and traditional values are now considered deviant or radical.
I think some of this is due to the extremely poor leadership in the country for the last 7 years. Granted things were degrading before that but they have accelerated lately.
We need to bring morality back and common sense.
