Thank goodness the National Association for Gun Rights was not carrying a real weapon when they pulled the political trigger last week. Except for the fact that it was premediated, this would be a deadly incident of “Friendly Fire,” and as all of our military and veterans know, on the battlefield there is nothing “friendly” about it.
There are few places in America which can truly be called “sacred ground.” Our battlefields where the brave have fallen are truly sacred ground. Our local and national cemeteries, from Valley Forge through this very day, where we have buried our sons and daughters who “gave the last full measure of devotion” … this can truly be called sacred ground.
Let's get this straight. The 2nd Amendment of the U.S. does not give Americans the right to bear arms. The 2nd Amendment of the U.S. does not give Americans the right to protect themselves and their families from personal and political harm.
2001 My friend Mike shot himself. It was Christmas Day and the pain was unbearable, help was on holiday. Rest In Peace My Friend.
It is heart wrenching, and an ill comment upon the state of our nation this solemn day, that the vast majority of our people, young and old, do not know, nor do they care, that our Memorial Day has been set aside to remember and honor our sons and daughters who have given their lives in defense of our national union, in defense of the freedom of our country, under the blanket of which we sleep in warmth and comfort this very night.

Special Edition on Blog Talk Radio

I would like to invite you to join me November 18th for a special edition of On Point Broadcasting on Blog Talk Radio; "In Response to Paris."
Many, hopefully most Americans, stand in solidarity with the French as they mourn their innocent dead and wounded. We have seen pictures in the press of people holding signs in support, “We are all French”.
Join me as we delve into the America's relationship with Kurdistan.
The race to take over House District 4 got a little more crowded Monday with a fifth Republican jumping into the field to take over forÂ Matt Gaetz, who is skipping his fourth term to run for the Florida Senate.
Claiming legal precedents, lawyers for a Wisconsin-based “charity,” the Freedom From Religion Foundation, have threatened to bring down the wrath and awesome power of the federal government upon duly elected Chairman Cathy Thigpen and the rest of the Okaloosa County School Board.
State Rep. Matt Gaetz has crossed another item off the AccountabilityOkaloosa to do list. A Gaetz-sponsored bill that requires judges to order restitution and 250 hours of community service for public officers caught taking bribes or misusing their office was signed into law last week.
