…”dream of bein’ a Princess”…

I’m an American Male. Why oh why is there NOTHIN’ News Worthy on a major TV Channel or even Cable Network this mornin’?

{{{{{ What’s the BIG DEAL ? }}}}}…OK! OK! OK! The Royal Weddin’ is over & done with! Now let the fightin’ begin over furniture, colors of paint for the Mini Palace, how many maids (no that’s not racial) will she need, & who will be doin’ the cookin”? WHO CARES? Has Las Vegas started postin’ Odds as to “how long the Love Story will last”? As I told my Bride, as she was sippin’ her Mug-O-Joe, as she was watchin’em board the Royal Carriage “I truly wish someone in the crowd would have popped one of those horses, with a rock from a sling shot, on the butt & watched them tear off wildly thru the streets”. Now THAT would have been {{{{{ EXCITIN’ ! }}}}} & well worth the broadcast time, to ME. I truly do not understand the infatuation with it. Other than mostly all the women, & some men, of the world dream of bein’ a Princess. Yeah, well those odds are slim & none…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”in THEIR best interest”…

A PATRIOT: Noun, a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.
Patriots were those colonists of the Thirteen Colonies who rebelled against British control during the American Revolution and in July 1776 declared the United States of America an independent nation. Their rebellion was based on the political philosophy of republicanism, as expressed by spokesmen such as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Thomas Paine. They were opposed by the Loyalists who instead supported continued British rule…Wikipedia

A Politician: A politician is a person active in party politics, or a person holding or seeking office in government. In democratic countries, politicians seek positions within a government through elections or appointment. In non-democratic countries, they employ other means of reaching power through appointment, bribery, revolutions and intrigues…Wikipedia

A Career Politician: Very Similar to His/Her Cousin as described above. They’re “Low Lifes” from either party (but it seems as thought the “DemocRATS” have the upper hand in this field @ this time in History). Career Politicians, how ever, have much more of a focus centered on Their Personal Gain in Position & (most importantly) Financial Gain. This is reflective by comparin’ their Entry Level Positions & Financials to their Exit Levels. Check’em out! The VAST Majority WILL prove this out…BG>

Politicians & Especially Career Politicians are staunchly against Patriots enterin’ their chosen career fields. Patriots are not afraid to do what they say they will do. Politicians & Career Politicians Do not/Will not! Just look at this scenario currently playin’ out in our country RIGHT NOW!

Democrats ▸ Hillary (The Loser) Clinton. Lincoln Chafee . Lawrence Lessig. Martin O’Malley. Bernie Sanders. Jim Webb.
Republicans ▸ Jeb (“Cry Baby”) Bush. Ben Carson. Chris Christie. Ted (“Lying Ted”) Cruz. Carly Fiorina. Jim Gilmore. Lindsey Graham. Mike Huckabee. Bobby Jindal. John Kasich. George Pataki. Rand Paul. Rick Perry. Marco (“Little Marco”)Rubio. Rick Santorum. Scott Walker, (& oh yeah The Patriot) Donald Trump.

I guess I don’t need to, but I choose too, REMIND you that “The UNDERDOG WON”! 99.9% of the Political Gurus, Experts, News Annalists, Main Stream Media (MSM) Syndicates (& I mean Syndicates) had already hand picked The Winner…WHO turned out to be “THE LOOSER”! Now, all of the Career Politician Losers seem to be gatherin’ on all sides to take down The Winner/The Patriot/The President Of The United States (POTIS) before he can bring an end, “Drain The Swamp”!, to their Chokin’ Grasp on our Great Nation & their “Cash Cows”. There’s also a horrible side effect that has seemed to follow that election & the issues it has spawned. I refer to it as “SSDS” (Sudden Suicide Death Syndrome)! An Ole Game Show Host used to ask a question, of his participants, in order to win the Game, “Do You Know The Count & Amount”? It’s scary to think about, isn’t it? The Game isn’t over yet…

It’s sad that in our country, today, the vast majority of the Career Politicians are more Socialist than anything else. They are doing their best to give away all that has been Fought for, Bled for, & Died for through the many Generations of our Forefathers & all the way up to Current Military Men & Women Of These United States (well except for California). The “wolf is at the door”! I {{{{{ SALUTE ! }}}}} these Brave Warriors, for THEY truly knew/know the Cost Of Freedom!

“The “wolf at the door” refers to any danger or predator that seeks to ravage the inhabitants within, ranging from starvation and poverty to physical death. when the wolf is at the door you are starving, the outside is coming in and your security is gone. If a hungry wolf is at your door, you are in serious trouble”…unknown

Career Politicians…NO! I cannot put my trust in THEIR best interest, because their best interest is NOT MINE! “God Bless America”!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Illegal Immigrants are Invading our Country”…

I am confused about one of the most important issues that’s facin’ our Country today. I really can’t grasp the reactions of people concernin’ this most important issue…Our Southern Border…

{{{{{ BORDER ! }}}}}…Definition: “a line separating two political or geographical areas, especially countries”.

A single word. {{{{{ BORDER ! }}}}} that has so many divided against one another. We use, mostly, an open Border around our Country. In some areas we have NO structure at all to control entry. So people just come & go as they choose. Some are Desirable & many are Undesirables. But we just can’t seem to control’em. Some areas have natural barriers such as Rivers. At times those may just slow those entries down but NOT control’em. Some areas have, maybe, just a Barbed Wire Fence. Those have more of a tendency to keep some wildlife or domesticated animals contained. But people climb over or under’em or just cut them down & enter as they please. In recent years we have gone so far as to put up larger barriers, in selected areas, that slowed the flow until people decided to Climb them. Why our Government hasn’t {{{{{ ELECTRIFIED ! }}}}} them still amazes me. We have even tried to re-enforce our Southern Border with Manpower, our Border Patrol personnel, limited in scope as to what they can do, to prevent Illegal entry & Electronic Surveillance to assist, that gets damaged or taken down by Undesirables.

As I think about this I wonder why people are so opposed to “A Border Wall”. Think about this for a moment. Now, direct your thoughts to say “YOUR HOME”! Whether you live in a House, an Apartment, a Trailer, a Tent, a Make-Shift Lean To, a Yurt, a Cave, a Tree House, or any other abode YOU call HOME. Don’t YOU, in a manner of speakin’, consider “the outer barriers” of your abode as “A Border”? Do you not decide who does or does not cross that Barrier/Border & enter into your protected space? Why?… Do you have Locks on your entrances? Do you use them? Why?… I would think to keep unwanted people out & to protect what you perceive to be yours! Do you have a fence around your abode, yard, farm, or acreage with gates at certain locations to control entry? If not, do you ever wish you did? Why?… Is it/Would it be to keep protected what you happen to have within it or to keep others from enterin’ your space & take or abuse what is yours? Do you feel the urge to protect yourself, your family, or your animals? Why?…Maybe because those that pass through your property just abuse it & move on. Maybe they are movin’ Illegal substances across you property & bringin’ with them undesirables, undocumented (un-vetted) Illegals not to mention all of the illness & diseases they bring with them. Then possibly other undesirables want to engage them for those Illegal substances or even Human Traffickin’. If you had exhausted many/all other options would you not choose a taller Border device/Border Wall to keep you & yours safe? Yet maintain an area for entrance & exit to control those who do pass through your property…Now think of it on a much larger scale. Do we not need to do the same for our Country? I am one of those that think we do. Illegal Immigrants are Invading our Country unchecked!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Remember The Alamo”…

I hope all of you that are, or are plannin’ on, celebratin’ “Cinco De Mayo” enjoy this day. It means so much to The Country Of Mexico. They SHOULD be celebratin’ it, THERE!..
As for me, I have NO TIES to Mexico. I have received some Flack & Differin’ Opinions from mine. But I respect their opinion as I would hope they would respect mine. Though some are questionable. Nuff said…

I don’t Celebrate Mexican Wars:

The Battle of the Alamo

In December 1835, in the early stages of Texas’ war for independence from Mexico, a group of Texan (or Texian) volunteers led by George Collinsworth and Benjamin Milam overwhelmed the Mexican garrison at the Alamo and captured the fort, seizing control of San Antonio. By mid-February 1836, Colonel James Bowie and Lieutenant Colonel William B. Travis had taken command of Texan forces in San Antonio. Though Sam Houston, the newly appointed commander-in-chief of the Texan forces, argued that San Antonio should be abandoned due to insufficient troop numbers, the Alamo’s defenders–led by Bowie and Travis–dug in nonetheless, prepared to defend the fort to the last. These defenders, who despite later reinforcements never numbered more than 200, included Davy Crockett, the famous frontiersman and former congressman from Tennessee, who had arrived in early February.

On February 23, a Mexican force comprising somewhere between 1,800 and 6,000 men (according to various estimates) and commanded by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna began a siege of the fort. The Texans held out for 13 days, but on the morning of March 6 Mexican forces broke through a breach in the outer wall of the courtyard and overpowered them. Santa Anna ordered his men to take no prisoners, and only a small handful of the Texans were spared. One of these was Susannah Dickinson, the wife of Captain Almaron Dickinson (who was killed) and her infant daughter Angelina. Santa Anna sent them to Houston’s camp in Gonzalez with a warning that a similar fate awaited the rest of the Texans if they continued their revolt. The Mexican forces also suffered heavy casualties in the Battle of the Alamo, losing between 600 and 1,600 men.

From March to May, Mexican forces once again occupied the Alamo. For the Texans, the Battle of the Alamo became a symbol of heroic resistance and a rallying cry in their struggle for independence. On April 21, 1836, Sam Houston and some 800 Texans defeated Santa Anna’s Mexican force of 1,500 men at San Jacinto (near the site of present-day Houston), shouting “Remember the Alamo!” as they attacked. The victory ensured the success of Texan independence: Santa Anna, who had been taken prisoner, came to terms with Houston to end the war. In May, Mexican troops in San Antonio were ordered to withdraw, and to demolish the Alamo’s fortifications as they went.

In 1845, the United States annexed Texas. For many years afterward, the U.S. Army quartered troops and stored supplies at the Alamo. In 1883, the state of Texas purchased the Alamo, later acquiring property rights to all the surrounding grounds. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas, a women’s organization including descendants of the earliest Texan residents, has managed the Alamo since 1905. Today, more than 2.5 million people a year visit the 4.2-acre site, which includes some original structures dating back to the mission period. History…

#2) Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. Wikipedia…
To me it’s kind of like celebratin our loss at The Alamo. “Remember The Alamo”! I don’t celebrate THAT Mexican War either. Just one man’s opinion…“Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”afraid of future competition”…

This country has always Protected it’s IMPORTANT PEOPLE with Weapons/Guns! As do other nations around the world.

Just for example, for those Idiots who don’t understand that, maybe this might help you. In our country we protect The President, with Secret Service Agents, both while in office & even once he (so far there has never been a HER) has left office for LIFE. The Vice President for as long as he (again, there has never been a HER) is IN office. All of our Legislative Offices, Judicial Offices, Military Bases, and on and on and on.

In this Country Children (Elementary School, High School, & yes even Colleges) have pretty much been considered  as “Hands Off”. But it seems as thought that has changed too. For some strange, Charles Whitman decided to change that in Austin, TX. back in the 1966. And the most recent down in Parkland, FL.

Crazy People come in all shapes, forms, sizes, colors, & religions. I’m sure there are probably many other categories that could be listed. Some influenced by politics, video games, religious beliefs, drugs, dropouts, unsuccessful students, lack of love or supervision at home, and on and on and, on. But for some reason it doesn’t seem to be of the utmost importance to protect the future leaders of this country. Does that show that current Career Politicians want to eliminate the completion in future years? I sure as hell hope not. Although some I DO wonder about!

I realize that Federal, State, County Governments, & Local Municipalities would have to work that into their budgets. And like ALL good politicians none of them want to raise taxes to cover such issues. But throw “A Little PORK” item out there that they can steal from & they’ll all vote for it. Nor do any of them want {{{{{ GUNS }}}}} in schools for possible protection situations. They would rather let Law Enforcement handle that. Then they have dodged that “Budget Bullet”.

Then there is the argument about Law Enforcement Response Time! Hum-m-m…recently in Florida it took 20 some odd minutes! WHY!!! How do YOU feel on this? Maybe YOUR child, niece or nephew, neighborhood children will be next? Hum-m-m…Oh well, lets study it & MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, vote on it in a few years. We’ll just wait on our Career Politicians to decide on that, if they’re really NOT afraid of future competition…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Timin’ is everything”…

Thank God the Senate Race here in Alabama is over. MY Party, the Republican Party, didn’t win. So be it! That’s a big disappointment for me. I wasn’t especially proud of the Republican candidate, a former Judge & The Chief Justice for The Alabama State Supreme Court. But he was the Party Candidate. He had a lot of Political Baggage in his past. He was twice removed from “The Bench” durin’ the “Obama years” for defyin’ (Democratically Appointed) Federal Judges on issues not yet ruled on by The US Supreme Court! But the biggest issue was that 4 weeks prior to the “Special Election” all of sudden women from his past, I believe 4 or 5 of’em, it was hard to keep up with “the count & the amount”, some from as many as 40 years ago just appeared with rumored unwanted sexual touchin’s & such. Nothin’ was ever proven! 40 years ago or recently? The accusations were enough to get press, Bad Press. Oddly enough there had NEVER been charges brought up on him in his past. And this man had been thru many political races & won most of’em. That’s rather odd I think. Now, could it have been attributed to all of the “Out-of-State-Money” showing up to fund the opponent, huntin’ any dirt they could find/buy on the Republican? It raises too many questions. The DemocRAT candidate was a former Federal Prosecutor runnin’ on his past history, which isn’t especially impressive (to me) either. But bein’ the DemocRAT candidate the DNC was really funnelin’/spendin’ money, by the MILLIONS, tryin’ to snatch a Senate Seat from Alabama. As Alabama is prominently a Republican State. Several of the accusations brought froward were quickly shot down & the people that brought them forward just seemed to vanish as quickly as they appeared. Hum-m-m-m? The main one finally admitted she ALTERED some “Evidence” she produced, on her own, that was 1st reported to have been written in an old year book, that her “Female Shyster” wouldn’t let anyone see, by the Republican candidate. The DemocRAT won in the end. “Timin’ is everything” I guess. I’ll close by simply sayin’ “God Bless America”! Cause we’re goin’ to need it…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Someone HAS to know!”…

Watchin’ the News this mornin’ I am again reminded of a question I have asked many times, of many people, & NEVER gotten an answer to it. It seems as though NO ONE wants to talk about it! Oh, and YES I am an ALABAMA Fan. But NO I’m not a “HATER”! So, I’m goin’ to ask it AGAIN! “WHO PAYS for the Clean-up @ Toomer’s Corner” after Auburn wins a football game & then Fans ROLL The Trees there with all of that Toilet Paper (TP)? On the News this mornin’ it showed someone pushin’ a Powered Blower, a couple of people/men with rakes werea rakin’, a Street Sweeper runnin’ along the gutters of the street there with one man walkin’ along pointin’ down at the mess, & several standin’ around watchin’. They must have been the Supervisors or Stand-by Rakers waitin’ their turns. And just by circumstance, they were ALL wearin’ those Reflective type Safety Vests.Which I guess is a good thing. Either way I’m sure they’re bein’ PAID! BUT BY WHO? Do The City Tax Payers (pay a hidden Tax charged on purchases)? Does The University (in the form of a Tuition increase for a slush fund)? Does the University add a $2.00 (+/-) increase on the 100,000 (+/-) Game Tickets Sold? Is there a surcharge on every Roll of TP sold within a 50 mile radius? Are the Local Businesses around town required to kick in a % of their Sales Profits? OR is it a combination of ALL of the above? WHO PAYS FOR THIS! Someone HAS to know! An inquirin’ mind wants to know…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
