Roy and I currently live in California … the most tax-happy state in the USA.  It’s strangling us and our entrepreneurial spirit as well as our strong support of our 2nd Amendment rights.  California, while being a beautiful state, is burying us in taxes.  It just isn’t worth it, quite honestly.

Texas, on the other hand, strongly supports business and the Bill of Rights.

Texas is also a very beautiful state.  I lived there for a while as a kid.  I’d move back in a heartbeat.

Perhaps that is why we are looking to move to Texas when we retire.

Roy worked in downtown Boston for many years, just blocks from where the historic Boston Marathon and the cowardly attack occurred.  He and I are heartsick over what occurred there.  He is irate.  He knows the area personally.  He knows people that were there and in it.  His family is nearby.  Childhood friends are nearby.  Coworkers are nearby.  We are appalled at the devastation.  We are appalled at the attacker(s) cowardice.

Without a doubt, the attack was cowardly.

Yes … that’s right … *COWARDLY*.

*Cowards* don’t show their faces.

*Cowards* hide rather than stand and fight.

*Cowards* don’t try to work things out.

*Cowards* don’t address issues face-to-face.

*COWARDS* attack innocent people.

That’s true of the 9-11 attacks also … & any other terrorist attack that has occurred around the world.


Plain, flat, and simple


We, as Americans, will not be deterred.  We are not cowards. Do not underestimate our fighter spirit.  Many may have become complacent and lazy due to a relatively calm domestic political life … but when put to the test … the pioneer spirit … the “live free or die” spirit … the fighter spirit … the “don’t mess with me” spirit … the spirit of their ancestors … will rise full bore and the USA *will* fight back.  That’s what makes our country great.  That’s what makes our country successful.

Americans to the core are not cowards like the attackers are and were.

Boston, our support is with you.  Remember Bunker Hill.  Remember Paul Revere.  Remember your history.  FIGHT BACK.  The rest of the country is backing you, all the way to the California Sierra foothills in the middle of the Gold Country … to the Alamo in Texas … to the frozen tundra of Alaska … to wherever in this country you might be able to name.

Stand up and FIGHT!

Don’t let cowards take the fight from you.


Don’t let even our government take your fighting spirit or ability from you.


Don’t let ANYONE take the fight from you. 


Roy and I … as well as people around the country and around the world … have your backs.


Our ancestors … *YOUR* ancestors … are backing you.


It doesn’t matter how hard it is.


Success is achieved in business, life, politics, or personally in this manner.

Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.

This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX , Nov 18, 2011


Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”

Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
