Bay County's fallen heroes were honored Monday in a Memorial Day ceremony at Kent-Forest Lawn Cemetery.
All of the grave sites were adorned with a small American flag, and a closer look revealed the final resting places of those who answered the call to military service.
Dozens of veterans and civilians gathered to remember the human cost of freedom. "It's a… Continue

Hello people, what I would like to discuss here today is a fear many of us feel, that is, we are clearly running out of time with which to appreciate and enjoy the freedoms many of us have taken for granted far too long. The threat is large and looming greater with each and every passing week that Barack Obama is allowed to remain in office. Granted what is going on with the loss of our freedoms, our way of life is far bigger than he, but, he is none the less the figure head for which this… Continue

Well its Monday 22 May 2011 and the weather here is wet and warm or maybe humid, but first lets bow our heads in prayer forr the lives that were lost in Missouri from the twister or bad wind storm . . . . . . . . . . ., Amen.
I may complain about the snow, rain and the cold weather we get but I am sure glad we don't get the mud slides, flooding and the flooding we do get is nothing like them in the south, also we don't get the twisters or hurricanes. I feel sorry for them people and… Continue

"Liberty is the prevention of control by others.
This requires self-control and, therefore,
religious and spiritual influences;
education, knowledge, well-being."

Hello America, I want to share a few words with you today, words that many of you very well may simply choose to ignore as you have everything else that speaks to to our fateful demise! It is unconscionable for me to fathom that we have people in this country so blind, distracted or naive, that they would ignore or fail to heed the endless warning signs popping up one right after another that clearly indicate our nation is teetering on a cliff of disaster! I ask you one and all; where is your… Continue

I do not know about the rest of you out there, but I have just about had it with organizations such as 'CAIR' attempting to dictate terms to us in our very own country! I am not a racist, and have no issue or quarrel with anyone who is of a different race than I, except with Muslims! We allowed them into our country, we opened our hearts to them and what have they done? They have spit upon our western ways, they have 'Arm Twisted' our government officials to make their laws our laws, they… Continue

"Far from failing in its intended task, our educational system is in fact
succeeding magnificently, because its aim is to keep the American people
thoughtless enough to go on supporting the system."

It has been said many times "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but, not all of the people all of the time"! It would seem that Obama thinks he can fool all of us all of the time, and that we are so naive, dumb and smitten with his charm that we will just accept for face value anything he puts out there! Well I am here to tell you Barry, or whatever the hell your name is, you do not have all of us under your spell! Some of us see you for the snake you really are and the poison… Continue

I find this quite shocking on many given levels, especially given that the White House used to stand for something uplifting, positive and or patriotic besides a venue for Ghetto Rappers who rap about killing police and other disturbing subject matters! It is indeed a very sad day for America when we… Continue
