A clear message

Part 1 - In honor of our veterans

“Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few!” When Winston Churchill made this famous statement, he was talking about the costly but successful battle waged by the Royal Air Force against the German Luftwaffe over England during WWII. These brave airman and the skilled ground crews that supported them staved off a devastating attack by the most advanced and deadly air force in the world. Despite overwhelming odds and little if any rest, these brave pilots returned to the air day after day in patched together planes to confront waves of attacking German bombers and fighter escorts, eventually inflicting such damage on the aggressors the attack was abandoned. Churchill recognized the event as a defining moment of the conflict and immortalized the successful defense of the English homeland forever in his stirring speech.

I wish it was within my power to compose a speech that expressed my gratitude to veterans of the American Military as well as Churchill did. Where would America be if not for the unselfishness and sacrifice of American Military personnel? From 1775 to 2014, Americans have gone willingly to serve their country in conflicts all over the world. The words of thanks uttered by Churchill apply to all these brave and patriotic men and women no matter when or where they have served.

Veterans, on behalf of myself and millions of others who enjoy freedom because of your unselfish conduct, please accept my sincere, heartfelt, and undying gratitude. We salute each and every one of you!



Part 2 - Who will be the adult in the room?

The 2014 mid terms are over. The American people have sent a clear message: We The People are, for the most part, sick of the false claims of racism, the war on women, being lied to and treated with condescension and contempt. We are sick of a partisan and corrupt IRS and Department of Justice, and angry that journalists doing their jobs and ordinary law abiding citizens are spied on like terrorists while the mosques that breed terrorists and spread hate are exempt from surveillance. We have had it with gridlock at the federal level caused not by conservatives (as liberals would have us believe) but by the Democratic leadership in the Senate, where 352 bills passed by the House sit dead in the water because Harry Reid refuses to allow them off his cluttered desk. (And Libe .....
