Memorial Day and Freedom

The Memorial Day program this morning reinforced my belief that I want to be free.  I want my children to be free.  I want my grandchildren to be free.  I do not want to be the subject of any government foreign or domestic! 

I will continue to work for less government and more personal responsibility and freedom.

An Afternoon Blog: We the Tree

RYAN NICHOLS - Hardened Criminal?? Seriously??

If you're not already aware. This is what's going on in DC while dangerous criminals are allowed back out on the streets.  It's horrifying that this is happening to our citizens and veterans for protesting the hijacking of our election process. This is still happening! They are STILL being tortured and treated like full on terrorists. 

You may not be aware of the typical things they're forced to go through...…
