    It's true, I can't believe I've held this incredible pain inside me for so long but I have to tell somebody how cruelly and unfairly I was treated, Oh so long ago.I was new to the Army, heading to Basic Training in 1969, wanting to make a difference and serve my country and America but what I encountered shook me to my very core.Me, a wide-eyed recruit, got off the bus at Fort Lewis Washington and was immediately yelled at and verbally abused by this looming, big, (and mean), Staff Sergeant named SSG Gritman.He singled me out immediately because he...

    It read like something straight out of "The Onion". "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections." So spake Mitt Romney, would-be King of the Establishment Republicans. This one sentence shows a complete betrayal of all American mores and morals. In every walk of life -- law, elections, even reputations -- Americans have cherished the concept that one is innocent until proven guilty. This shows how dangerous Establishment Republicans are. They are every bit as dangerous as the most liberal Democrat.... and if given enough freedom to act, they would happily join Democrats in rounding up and killing...

  • My ideas for tax reform

    My bad self | October 23, 2017 | Me
    Greetings all: Here are my ideas for tax reform: Two brackets: 15% and 28% (instead of 12% and 25%), with said 15% bracket covering an amount of income equal to that taxed for Social Security (2X that for married couples and 1.5X that for head of household). There would be no higher 3rd, 4th or 5th brackets. Standard deduction of $12,000 ($24,000 for married couples, $18,000 for head of household), but keeping the personal and dependent exemptions (currently $4,050 apiece), with dependents including all dependents, not just children. Get rid of ALL deductions and credits, except for charitable giving and...

    Two places to donate money to help the California fire victims! All of your money will go to that effort! The family that owns Hall’s Winery has started a matching fund drive to help the people in the fire areas needing financial aid. Every $ donated will be matched and will go to help those in need and not line some rich liberal so called charity’s pockets! Many of the evacuees left their homes at night with minimal clothing and basically what money they might have had at home. Many will have no homes to return to and maybe no...

    My own thoughts | 10/08/2017 | Doughtyone for Free Republic
    While working on another study this afternoon, I stumbled across some figures that might be enlightening to others.  It was surprising to me. You see, I'm a member of a very special group.  Born white, male, and over 65 years of age, I'm guilty of white Privilege, (according to some people). Yes, I am hanging my head in shame, moving it from side to side.  ( /s )  How did I ever sink to this level?  Clearly there is a problem.  (Or is there?)  Can I ever atone for this?  Can you? Our white youth are considered to have an...

    According to the FBI-- a hate group's "primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin which differs from that of the members of the organization." Okay so lets run Islam through that criterion and see how it stacks up. Does Islam promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a--- race-no religion- YES definitely, they hate Jews, Chiristians, Hindus, etc every religion besides their own, and they very often kill people because of it. disability- no Sexual orientation--Another big YES, they throw gays in prison,...

    9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. 10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. Job 2:9-10 When Texas receives hurricanes they make lemon-aid. God works in mysterious ways as we are witnessing some of the greatest Christian outreach in the Country being brought to bear in Houston. We are seeing what the Church and good old...

    White is the New Black There was a shameful period in post-Civil-War America -- that war undertaken to rid us of a heinous national moral outrage, slavery -- in which the freed slaves were treated incredibly poorly. Denied opportunities, facing racism throughout the land, these African-Americans suffered indignity after indignity. They were denied access to good schools, or, sometimes, any education at all. They were passed over for all but the most menial jobs. The legal system was especially harsh to them. Welfare and other forms of government aid were shoved at them, in the effort to buy their votes...

    In late 2011, when the Fast and Furious Obama-gunrunning scandal broke the news media logjam, I noticed something very odd: Almost immediately thereafter, two other major scandals broke open almost simultaneously. Soylandra, a 'green energy' startup, was shown to have misused and diverted millions of dollars, and there was a heavy political involvement by the Obama administration. Secondly, it emerged that the IRS was bending rules for liberal political advocacy groups and slow-walking the approval of conservative ones. It seemed to me, at the time, to be an Alinksy-style tactic: Overwhelming the system. By introducing and nearly-admitting several scandals at...

    Statuary Rape A curious madness has swept the American left as of late: There is a hatred and a desire to tear down every monument and statue that 'offends' them. Leaving aside the fact that there is no American right to remain unoffended, what started as a focus on Confederate statues has spread to every manner of marker or memorial. Let us consider: A Houston man attempted to destroy a Confederate statue at the General Dowling Monument.... with a bomb! The 'offending' statue need not even be of a particular person, when, in Durham, protesters illegally toppled a statue of...

    I think its time we played the "you must condemn and apologize for ___" on liberals, democrats and their leaders. They must Condemn and apologize for James T. Hodgkinson's shooting of Steve Scalise and the others he shot. They must condemn and apologize for the 15 murders of police associated with black lives matter, as well as the hundreds of people beaten and the hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage and looting. They must condemn and apologize for the rioting and beatings at Berkeley surrounding the Milo event. They must condemn and apologize for all the violence toward...

    History proves you cannot appease Marxist/fascist/socialist/globalist totalitarians. They will never be satisfied and will never stop. Trump is absolutely correct. If you allow them to tear down these historical Civil War monuments, then they’ll be coming after Washington and Jefferson next. In fact, they’ll be coming after the American flag, our national anthem, our Judeo-Christian heritage, the Bible, and anything to do with the founding of this great nation while leaving the institution of slavery intact. And that includes the constitution itself. It did not ban slavery and must therefore be destroyed. And they will continue destroying monuments, burning books,...

    I know this is a Vanity/Editorial but someone needs to ask a series of questions to those trying to trash Trump. Is a bat wielding KKK, White Supremacist worse than a bat wielding Leftist, Antifa, protestor? If "yes", why? Is it worse for a business owner if his business is looted, torched, damaged, by a KKK, White Supremacist instead of their business being looted, torched, damaged, by a Leftist, Antifa protestor? In the past 2 years who has spewed more hate and violence towards LAW enforcement the KKK, White Supremacist movement OR the Leftist, BLM, Antifa movement? If a member...

    1. Leftist/media claim--Trump hasn't condemned racist and violent groups enough. *BUZZ* false He has several times. Contrast that to the democrats. Did Obama EVER condemn black lives matter and their murder of 15 cops, and weeks of rioting and looting? No he never did. has any Democrat condemned the leftists rioting at Berkeley or James Hodgkinson, the murderer who shot Steve Scalise? No, never. fact finder results. Trump has condemned violent racist groups several times. Leftist leaders have not condemned leftist violent hate groups even once. 2.Leftist/media inferred claim-- Only the right is violent, extreme and hateful. *BUZZ* false The...

    I am not a writer but will do the best I can. I arrived about 10:30ish. Was actually surprised that I was able to find a parking space relatively close to Lee Park. In fact I thought that perhaps the turnout wouldn't be as big as I was anticipating because I didn't see much at first and I was only 5 blocks from ground zero but I was wrong. By the time I had walked one block toward the park the police presence was strong. Many in riot type gear. They had most streets and walkways blocked off funneling everyone...

    I was shocked reading a number of posts today about the incident in Virginia, specifically about the car crash incident. It seems to some that that car crash was the entire sum of the protest. Naturally it is now being used as a weapon against Conservatism, so it is necessary to begin to think clearly about what actually occurred and what we shouldn't be agreeing with the media on. The Federales are even launching a "Civil Rights" investigation over what the media is calling an act of "terrorism": When you have the Feds coming in to investigate whether civil...
