Montanians Want A Fiscally Sound State-Their Governor Accuses the Tea Party of Creating a Civil War -

Maybe Montana is the place to go--
The state has LOTS of liberals from CA -now--too bad-
Perhaps more sound minded folks could move there- because it looks like it may become one of the most FREEDOM loving states in the Union..
Their governor has to be voted out at some point -he does not get it!
Governor of Montana is 'concerned ' about the Tea Party
Montana-Freedom- Gun Rights-Militias

To remind-I will be highlighting all links affecting FREEDOM in this great Nation -in RED!!! for all of 2011>>>

1st Lt. Daren Hidalgo-KIA-Prayers to His fAMILY.-Rest in Peace Brave One....

First Lt. Daren Hidalgo came from a family that followed a philosophy in which each member, somehow, should contribute to their country.

"My boys all decided to go into the military," said Jorge Hidalgo, father of the late Daren Hidalgo.

A 2005 graduate of Dallastown Area High School, Daren Hidalgo, 24, was killed Sunday near Mama Kiriz, Afghanistan, while conducting combat operations, according to the website of the 2nd Cavalry Association and Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations.

He was assigned to G Company, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, Rose Barracks, Germany.

After high school, Daren Hidalgo received a U.S. Military Academy appointment to West Point. His father

Daren Hidalgo (SUBMITTED)
and older brother, Miles Hidalgo, also attended West Point.

Daren Hidalgo graduated from the military academy in 2009 and then completed a year's worth of training before heading to Afghanistan, Jorge Hidalgo said.

Daren's father described his late son as hard working and willing to take on a challenge. He remembered his son's smile. He said Daren was kind-hearted and the "sparkle in everyone's eye."

muslims take over properties-harrass women-French woman - Marie is Braver than most men I know...

Marie is braver and smarter than the men of my former church - who sold Christian (church) property to muslims in 1998-a few of us women-who know what the take over of Christian property meant to muslims (a finger in our eye) tried to stop the sale- we were met w/ 'eye rolls' (those pesky women)--
Marie is a French shop keeper who is brave and stands up to tyranny-this is a WOW -eye opener...
thanks crusader rabbit NZ

UC Davis-Students Taught That CHRISTians Are Suppressors-

but- wait a minute - Christian students are afraid to speak up because they would be 'backlashed' an or SUPPRESSED!
It is time that the students sue the University-Thomas Moore Law- or ???

I have often thought of going back to U and becoming an advocacy lawyer-but- there would go my art - again---
up-date:my further take--
turning the other cheek is OK-one cheek / then the other >then we start tuning over the money changers' tables!!!...

Dog Handler-General Rhonda Cornum-prisoner of war -First Gulf War

I used to believe that women should NOT serve in the front lines- then my off - spring-who trained with women at one of the military academies -stated that they were every bit as good as the guys -(and I am known as one who believes that women are MORE THAN EQUAL @Carol)
Interestingly- I read about Gen. Cornum (remembered the stories about women being taken prisoner and molested -by the followers of the religion of peace during the first Gulf War) as a dog handler in the great Dog Show at Madison Square Garden this week because I was reading about the winner -Hickory-Scottish Deer Hound--
See- It pays to read the entire article-that is how I found Gen Cornum..again.:

When U.S. Army flight surgeon Rhonda Cornum became one of two American service-women taken prisoner in the 1991 Persian Gulf War against Iraq, her story of resilience helped convince Americans that female soldiers could serve in expanded roles in wartime. Her memoir about the conflict and her eight days in captivity, She Went to War: The Rhonda Cornum Story , was published to critical acclaim in 1992.

Why Are WE in the US helping Mexico-

w/ its drug 'problems'?!~
We are we continuing to send billions of our US tax $$$ to Mexico-for what!
And- just like our troops are in a vice with the new Rules of Engagement-our border patrol and ICE agents are put in a vice w/ the Rules set by bureaucrats in Washington..

and remember the rancher who was protecting his own PROPERTY -stopping illegals - and then found 'guilty' and has to pay -$87,000 - FOR PROTECTING HIS OWN PROPERTY!!


Christians are few- Women are not allowed...

Horrors of War..From One Who Was There

Most of us do not understand the awful mental toll that those who battle have to suffer-
Mud Puppy has shared his turmoil-and has given me permission to link to his written expose...I'll give you a few words from his post and then- I hope you will go to his site and read the rest-
and - then read his_ VALENTINE_--Find!!

Resurrection- Mud Puppy

I can't hardly explain what's happened to me in the past few months since I've written to you.

Crashed, burned, drank, cried, laughed, and I stared....

Dead eyed at a loaded gun for about 6 hours...and never picked it up.

I didn't want to die. Had no interest in it really. I believe in God, but I'm not going to be the one to test the theory. Know what I mean?

Its been about 18 months since I came home from Afghanistan and luckily for me, the nightmares have become bearable dreams. Not sure if they're wearing off or my body and mind have simply adapted to them.

My family relationships have all returned to what I like to call, "the new normal" Basically, that's me plus the war equals what you've got now.

Work has gotten back normal as an incarceration center is ever going to get

Tocqueville-His view of Muhammad and Admiration for America...
You all remember this from Alexis de Tocqueville:
America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good America will cease to be great.-
I have listed two others-AWESOME--
the link above will give you more from this Admirer of the New US..
Wouldn't it be great if our ed system was such that it would produce 'log cabin' citizens w/ Shakespeare on their a norm and- don't get me started on the Muslims- he wrote the quote about them 200 years ago!!
1. Muhammad brought down from heaven and put into the Koran not religious doctrines only, but political maxims, criminal and civil laws, and scientific theories. The Gospels, on the other hand, deal only with the general relations between man and God and between man and man. Beyond that, they teach nothing and do not oblige people to believe anything. That alone, among a thousand reasons, is enough to show that Islam will not be able to hold its power long in ages of enlightenment and democracy, while Christianity is destined to reign in such ages, as in all others.

2. There is hardly a pioneer's hut which does not contain a few odd volumes of Shakespeare. I remember reading the feudal drama of Henry V for the first time in a log cabin.

3. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her fertile fields and boundless forests, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her public school system and her institutions of learning, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good America will cease to be great

Islamification of Our Military...

I have stated many times that I worry about the number of Muslims in our military under the guise of 'diversification'-the links tell the story-if you have time-try to scan them all--they will make it clear that we must be watchful...

It is written in the Kuran (5:51 [19]): “O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.”

According to our tipster, Jarrett was seated at the head table along with several other big-name politicians and a handful of high-ranking military officials. As an officer sporting several stars walked past Jarrett, she signaled for his attention and said, “I’d like another glass of wine.”
