Will Memorial Day 2011 be the last one that we have? Will Memorial Day 2011 be the last one where “we the people” have the freedom to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice? Will “we the people” still hold the freedom that so many shed blood for in 2012 and earlier? I am not so sure.

Our nation was founded on a few simple truths, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”

Today in our nation we have let ourselves stray far from where we started; we have cut out the GOD given right to life, we have had much of our personal liberty torn from us by an over bearing self-serving government and that has stolen, at last, the GOD-given right to pursue happiness.

Now one of the core beliefs this nation was founded on is threatened like never before. The freedom of Religion is under assault on a daily basis. The ACLU uses our very laws meant to protect our freedom against us and does all it can to remove from all public places any sign of religion. They have fought to get the cross removed from the war memorial in the Mojave Desert; they fight to have the 10 Commandments removed from Public property; and of course we cannot have prayer in school. The ACLU is one of the chief proponents of the downfall of our nation and it uses our own laws to destroy what was meant to protect us.

Our nation was built on the freedom of religion not the freedom from religion. Our founding fathers were not perfect men by any stretch but they were men of great faith. They knew that without a basic belief and adherence to basic Biblical morality we would fall. Today that very foundation is under assault from those on the far left and also the Anarchist on the far right.

We are a government of the People and when the people lose their Basic biblical morality so will our nation. If one will take an honest look about history one can see that as we have strayed from our moral foundation we have simultaneously declined as a nation. In 1954 the government gave churches the ability to become 501c3’s and be tax exempt. By doing this the churches gave up their rights to be politically active, 1962 the US supreme Court made it first an assault on prayer in tax funded schools,  in 1973 the US supreme Court redefined life so we could kill babies without violating anyone’s rights. What about the rights of the unborn?

As all this was going on what was happening to our American Culture? Marital infidelity and divorce started to rise and today is an acceptable part of our society. Without the moral foundations our youth became more susceptible to drugs and alcohol. Now today those kids are teaching our kids and the slide to moral depravity and the decline of our nation is so fast that I wonder if we can stop it and turn this ship around?

Memorial Day is a day to honor those who loved our nation so much that they laid down their lives for us here at home and for the cause of freedom around the world. America is the last hope for many nations in the world. Our freedom inspires many around the world and if our light goes out who will be left standing up for the cause of freedom?

Last week the Obama administration made another assault on all of us and all those who died for the cause of freedom when the Director of the Houston National Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio, told Pastor Rainey to submit his prayer before the ceremony so she could be sure it was acceptable to her and the Obama Administration and then responded back to him prohibiting him to use the word Jesus in his prayer. I thank GOD that that there are still a few courageous organizations like the Liberty Institute and the Harris County Republican Party Chairman Jared Woodfill who are willing to stand up and fight back against all those who are Anti-Christ . Without those few we would have less freedom today.

So as you remember those who died for all our freedom, also remember all those in the military and those here at home who are willing to continually stand in the gap for all of us!

    Bill, thank you for a great article which is very timely on this Memorial Day. To win the day for freedom we must convince more people (e.g., Conservatives who are not vocal and Moderates who are not engaged) to understand that freedom requires virtue and virtue requires thoughtful action and thoughtful action requires learning. Happy Memorial Day to All Americans!

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
