The way it SHOULD be sung…

March 29, 2011 Comments off

One thing that just chaps my spurs is for these so-called professional performers to get up and desecrate our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, and looking like they are trying out for “American Idol” or something!!

It’s the national anthem… and it should be sung with reverence and with respect.  With that rant said, I love the way this group of gals sings it!!

The Meaning of Blue Candles

December 14, 2010 Comments off

Most folks will be following the tradition of burning blue candles throughout the holidays.  The blue candle symbolizes the soldier that will not be able to come home during the holidays to spend it with their loved ones.

Folks I can tell you from experience this is one of the hardest times a soldier must endure.  I hated the holidays when I was deployed overseas.  I hated looking at my 1 foot tall Christmas tree with pics of my family hanging as ornaments.  I hated watching men and women talking to their spouses, children and family on the phone and trying to sound cheerful only to watch them break down weeping when they hung up.  I wanted to be home…. but, we had a duty to fulfill.

So for those that have served, I’m sure you can relate.  For those that are serving, you have those that have been there and those that are applauding your service!!


Illegal Immigration: According to the Gospel of Ray Stevens

May 20, 2010 Comments off

No matter how you look at it…. illegal immigration is fast becoming an epidemic of proportions that folks really don’t have a grasp of how big it really is.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m posting this to show how the government is fueling this explosion of illegal immigration by making it easy for them all the while taxing U.S. citizens to no end in order to combat this onslaught.  Talk about burning the candle at both ends and U.S. citizens are right in the middle of that huge fire!

In this video, pay close attention to the lyrics as Ray Stevens has nailed this issue!

If you’re gonna come here and live off our lands and within our economies, by golly do it the legal way!!!
