   One of our Founding Fathers called today...I believed it sounded like George Washington, but then again he tends to sound a lot like Thomas Jefferson.  He was in quite a lather, so I never did get a chance to ask for sure who he was.  He kept wanting to speak to someone that was in charge.  I told him he may as well speak to me because I really can't tell who's in charge.  He explained that he feels like a dad who died and left everything to the kids in his will and then the kids turn on one another.  He feels he and the other guys left a pretty good thing ( I assume he means the Constitution) and wants us all to knock off the bickering.  Here is a direct quote.....

"Its soul, its climate, its equality, liberty, laws, people, and manners. My god! how little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!"

I felt ashamed.  Damn when he originally said this, they were still riding horseback to get anywhere.  There was no real good way to communicate.  They didn't have Internet, phones, electricity, indoor plumbing,(for reading the newspaper on the Lou)  or Fox News.  WHAT!  NO FOX NEWS, CNN, CNBC....Good grief, how did they know who to vote for?  Who was there to uncover and record Washington hittin' the peace pipe?  I mean that cherry tree thing just came out of no where.....Yet, even in his day, they still had it better than anyone else in the world.  Imagine how much better we have it now and we take it for granted. 

 Washington assured me he hated actual war, but he firmly believed our country needed to be war ready and very strong.  He went on to re-quote a quote....( I mean I couldn't get a word in, he was so upset)

"Experience teaches us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession."
"If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War."
He then went on to quote Thomas Jefferson: 
"For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security."

I said  "ok George I really need to get going, I have a cake to bake for the picnic. Perhaps we can hook up again on the Fourth of July or something.  I will spread the word that you are very upset and don't really care for the direction we are going.  If you still need to talk, please call my mother. She has some very strong opinions and would love to hear from you.  I will spread the word of what you trying to remind me"   

So from George's mouth ( Jefferson's also) to my ear what they were trying to say is this:  instead of complaining about our military or cutting spending to our military, we should be making sure that not only are we war ready, but our soldiers and those that have served are very well taken care of. Wouldn't you think our military, at the very LEAST, should have the same health insurance as our congressmen?  They are, in fact, a government employee who works really hard for our country.  They literally put their own lives at risk and for less than should be expected.  When government is talking spending cuts, this group of employees shouldn't even be mentioned. 
 We only have a soldier to thank (and God of course) for our freedoms and our liberties.  Unfortunately we didn't gain these privileges through talking and reasoning with the enemy.  I wish that could be done, then there would be no need for war, but unfortunately, others cannot listen to reason.  (remember there are still countries where human rights do not exist.  Women get hung for "letting" themselves be raped!)
We, The United States of America, need to stay strong and be proud of what so many of our military have laid down their lives for.  They didn't do it for nothing.  We owe them and our forefathers more than we can ever return. I, along with every other Miss Universe wanna be, would love to see World Peace.  However, the Bible says in Matthew 24:6 "there will be wars and Rumors of Wars....." We cannot become weak....
God Bless our Servicemen and women, both past, present and future.   let's please give them the respect they deserve!  Our country needs to remain militarily strong!


  1. FYI: The military has health care, and in the past two years, when NO OTHER GOVERNMENT WORKER got a pay raise, the military DID.

  2. "Unfortunately we didn't gain these privileges through talking and reasoning with the enemy. I wish that could be done, then there would be no need for war, but unfortunately, others cannot listen to reason."

    This quote applies to some past wars, but not recent wars. WE started the recent wars, which means WE cannot listen to reason.

  3. Anonymous number one....I know the military has health care....I bet its not as good as what congress has.....I hope I'm wrong.
