Put Your Car Keys Beside Your Bed At Night.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.

If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.

This may save a life!

When A Woman Lies

When a woman lies.
One day, while a seamstress was sewing when sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river.  When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"  The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.  The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.  The seamstress replied, "No".
The Lord again dipped into the river.  He held out a golden thimble studded with rubies.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.   
Again, the seamstress replied, "No".
The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.  The seamstress replied, "Yes".
The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the river bank and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water.  When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are you crying?''

"Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!"

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.  "Is this your husband? The Lord asked.

"Yes", cried the seamstress.  The Lord was furious.  "You lied!  That is an untruth!"
The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord.  It is a misunderstanding.  You see, if I had said no to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt.

Then if I said no to him, you would have come up with my husband.  Had I then said yes, you would have given me all three.  Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said yes to George Clooney.  And so the Lord let her keep him.

The moral of this story is:  Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honourable reason and in the best interest of others.  That's our story, and we're sticking to it.
All Us Women

Laughter is like jogging on the inside. Exercise your 'innards' every day.
"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
Women are Angels.
And when someone breaks our wings,
We simply continue to fly....on a broomstick.
We are flexible like that.

Not A Good Sign ...

What do you Navy guys say about this?

What is wrong with this picture?

The  picture is of the five nuclear carriers... Just like Battleship Row,  Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.

This picture was  taken the other day in Norfolk. The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into  harbor for "routine" (?) inspections. Heads of the Navy were  flabbergasted by the directive. NORFOLK, VA.  (February 8, 2013). The first time since WWII that five U.S. aircraft carriers were docked  together. 

USS Dwight D.  Eisenhower (CVN 69),
USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), 

USS Enterprise  (CVN 65),
USS  Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and 

USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all  in port at Naval  Station Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station.

Sources stated  that this breached a  long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to  avoid massive  enemy strike on major US forces. (U.S. Navy photo  by Chief Mass Communication  Specialist Ryan J. Courtade/Released)

Watch out  America..... If there was ever ANOTHER real big false flag  brewing....this would be  perfect for it.

Wait 'Til You See This

First, there was this gun...

It was developed by General Electric, the "We bring good things to life" people.

It's one of the modern-day Gatling guns.

It shoots very big bullets...

It shoots them very quickly...

Someone said, "Let's put it in an airplane."

Someone else said, "Better still, let's build an airplane around it."

So they did. And "they" were the Fairchild Republic airplane people.

And they had done such a good job with an airplane they developed back in WWII .....called the P-47 Thunderbolt!

They decided to call it the A10 Thunderbolt ...AKA the Warthog

They made it so it was very good at flying low and slow and shooting things with that fabulous gun.

But since it did fly low and slow, they made it bulletproof, or almost so.

A lot of bad guys have found you can shoot an A10 with anything from a pistol to a 23mm Soviet cannon and it just keeps on flying and shooting.

When they got through, it looked like this.

It's not sleek and sexy like an F18 or the stealthy Raptors and such, but I think it's such a great airplane because it does what it does better than any other plane in the world.

It kills tanks.

Not only tanks, as Sadam Hussein's boys found out to their horror, but armored personnel carriers, radar stations, locomotives, bunkers, fuel depots... just about anything the bad guys thought was bulletproof turned out to be easy pickings for this beast.

See those engines. One of them alone will fly this plane.

The pilot sits in a very thick titanium alloy "bathtub."

That's typical of the design.

They were smart enough to make every part the same whether mounted on the left side or right side of the plane, like landing gear, for instance.

Because the engines are mounted so high (away from ground debris) and the landing gear uses such low pressure tires, it can operate from a damaged airport, interstate highway, plowed field, or dirt road.

Everything is redundant.

They have two of almost everything.

Sometimes they have three of something.

Like flight controls, there's triple redundancy of those,
and even if there is a total failure of the double hydraulic system, there is a set of manual flying controls.

Capt. Kim Campbell sustained this damage over Bagdad and flew for another hour before returning to base.

But, back to that gun.

It's so hard to grasp just how powerful it is.

This is the closest I could find to showing you just what this cartridge is all about.

What the guy is holding is NOT the 30mm round, but a "little" 50 Browning machine gun round and the 20mm cannon round which has been around for a long time.

The 30mm is MUCH bigger.

Down at the bottom are the .50 BMG and 20x102 Vulcan the fellow was holding.

At the bottom right is the bad boy we're discussing.

Let's get some perspective here: The .223 Rem (M16 rifle round) is fast.

It shoots a 55 or so grain bullet at about 3300 feet/sec, give or take.

It's the fastest of all those rounds shown (except one).

When you move up to the ..30 caliber rounds, the bullets jump up in weight to 160-200 grains. Speeds run from about 2600 to 3000 fps or so.

The .338 Lapua is the king of the sniper rifles these days and shoots a 350 grain bullet at 2800 fps or so.

They kill bad guys at over a mile with that one.

The 50 BMG is really big.

Everyone who picks it up thinks it's some sort of fake, unless they know big ammo.

It's really huge with a bullet that weighs 750 grains and goes as fast the Lapua.

I don't have data on the Vulcan, but hang on to your hat.

The bullet for the 30x173 Avenger has an aluminum jacket around a spent uranium core and weighs 6560 grains (yes, over 100 times as heavy as the M16 bullet, and flies through the air at 3500 fps (which is faster than the M16 as well).

The gun shoots at a rate of 4200 rounds per minute, Yes, four thousand.

Pilots typically shoot either one- or two-second burst which set loose 70 to 150 rounds.

The system is optimized for shooting at 4,000 feet

OK, the best for last.

You've got a pretty good idea of how big that cartridge is, but I'll bet you're like me and you don't fully appreciate how big the GA GAU-8 Avenger really is.

Take a look.

Each of those seven barrels is 112" long.

That's almost ten feet.
The entire gun is 19-1/2 feet long.

Think how impressive it would look set up in your living room.

Oh, by the way, it doesn't eject the empty shells but runs them back into the storage drum. There's just so dang many flying out, they felt it might damage the aircraft.

Oh yeah, I forgot, they can hang those bomb and rocket things on 'em too, just in case.

After all, it is an "airplane"!

Like I said, this is a beautiful design.

I'm glad it's ours.


A veteran - whether active duty, retired, National Guard or Reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

Little Known Historical Fact...The battle of Athens, TN. United States

What you see in the video is Hollywood but the event itself was real.
Little known American Historical Fact

I was completely  unaware of this event that took place in Athens, TN in 1946. I did not know an armed revolt on American soil by WWII veterans ever took place during our lifetime.
A very sobering video to say the least.

The Battle of Athens was an armed rebellion led by WWII veterans and citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the tyrannical local government in August 1946.

A movie made about the incident -

There’s a lot of info to read at the beginning – it will be easier to read if you full screen it

A Passing Generation Unnoticed!

We deserve to remember, they deserve to be remembered!

By Capt.  Steven Ellison, MD

This should be required reading in every  school and college in our country. This Captain,  an Army doctor, deserves a medal himself for  putting this together. If you choose not to pass  it on, fine, but I think you will want to, after  you read it. 

I am a  doctor specializing in the Emergency Departments  of the only two military Level One-Trauma  Centers, both in San Antonio, TX and they care  for civilian Emergencies as well as military  personnel. San Antonio has the largest military retiree population in the world living here. As a military doctor, I work long hours and the pay is less than glamorous. One tends to become jaded by the long hours, lack of sleep, food, family contact and the endless parade of human suffering passing before you. The arrival of  another ambulance does not mean more pay, only more work. Most often, it is a victim from a motor vehicle crash.

Often it  is a person of dubious character who has been shot or stabbed. With our large military retiree population, it is often a nursing home patient.  Even with my enlisted service and minimal combat experience in Panama, I have caught myself groaning when the ambulance brought in yet another sick, elderly person from one of the local retirement centers that cater to military  retirees. I had not stopped to think of what citizens of this age group represented.  

I saw 'Saving Private Ryan.' I was touched deeply. Not so much by the carnage, but by the sacrifices of so many. I was touched most by the scene of the  elderly survivor at the graveside, asking his  wife if he'd been a good man. I realized that I  had seen these same men and women coming through my Emergency Dept.. and had not realized what  magnificent sacrifices they had made. The things  they did for me and everyone else that has lived  on this planet since the end of that conflict  are priceless.

Situation  permitting, I now try to ask my patients about  their experiences. They would never bring up the  subject without the inquiry. I have been  privileged to an amazing array of experiences,  recounted in the brief minutes allowed in an  Emergency Dept encounter. These experiences have  revealed the incredible individuals I have had  the honor of serving in a medical capacity, many  on their last admission to the hospital.

There  was a frail, elderly woman who reassured my  young enlisted medic, trying to start an IV line  in her arm. She remained calm and poised,  despite her illness and the multiple  needle-sticks into her fragile veins. She was  what we call a 'hard stick.' As the medic made  another attempt, I noticed a number tattooed  across her forearm. I touched it with one finger  and looked into her eyes. She simply said, '  Auschwitz ..' Many of later generations would  have loudly and openly berated the young medic  in his many attempts. How different was the  response from this person who'd seen unspeakable  suffering.

Also,  there was this long retired Colonel, who as a  young officer had parachuted from his burning  plane over a Pacific Island held by the  Japanese. Now an octogenarian, he had a minor  cut on his head from a fall at his home where he  lived alone. His CT scan and suturing had been  delayed until after midnight by the usual parade  of high priority ambulance patients. Still spry  for his age, he asked to use the phone to call a  taxi, to take him home, then he realized his  ambulance had brought him without his wallet. He  asked if he could use the phone to make a long  distance call to his daughter who lived 7 miles  away. With great pride we told him that he could  not, as he'd done enough for his country and the  least we could do was get him a taxi home, even  if we had to pay for it ourselves. My only  regret was that my shift wouldn't end for  several hours, and I couldn't drive him  myself.

I was  there the night M/Sgt Roy Benavidez came through  the Emergency Dept. for the last time. He was  very sick. I was not the doctor taking care of  him, but I walked to his bedside and took his  hand. I said nothing. He was so sick, he didn't  know I was there. I'd read his Congressional  Medal of Honor citation and wanted to shake his  hand. He died a few days  later.

The  gentleman who served with Merrill's Marauders,  

the  survivor of the Bataan Death  March,

the  survivor of Omaha Beach ,  

the 101  year old World War I veteran.  

The former  POW held in frozen North Korea

The former  Special Forces medic - now with non-operable  liver cancer

the former  Viet Nam Corps Commander..  

I may  still groan when yet another ambulance comes in,  but now I am much more aware of what an honor it  is to serve these particular men and women.

I have  seen a Congress who would turn their back on  these individuals who've sacrificed so much to  protect our liberty. I see later generations  that seem to be totally engrossed in abusing  these same liberties, won with such sacrifice  

It has  become my personal endeavor to make the nurses  and young enlisted medics aware of these amazing  individuals when I encounter them in our  Emergency Dept. Their response to these  particular citizens has made me think that  perhaps all is not lost in the next generation.  

My  experiences have solidified my belief that we  are losing an incredible generation, and this  nation knows not what it is losing. We should  all remember that we must 'Earn this.'  

Written By  CAPT. Stephen R. Ellison, M.D. US Army
My own  personal note:
If it were not for these faithful, loyal, strong persons, there would not  be a United States of America .

Some Shocking News!!

"This is an outrage.  
This man should be commended not disparaged.   
Obama has tainted the office in which he now sits and Gen Dempsey is
a moron sycophant who has derogated his standing as a flag officer….
and harmed the best interests of our count

Lt. Col Matthew Dooley, a West Point graduate and highly-decorated combat veteran, was an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College at the National Defense University. He had 19 years of service and experience, and was considered one of the most highly qualified military instructors on Radical Islam & Terrorism.

He taught military students about the situations they would encounter, how to react, about Islamic culture, traditions, and explained the mindset of Islamic extremists. Passing down first hand knowledge and experience, and teaching courses that were suggested (and approved) by the the Joint Forces Staff College. The course "Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism", which was suggested and approved by the Joint Forces Staff College, caught the attention of several Islamic Groups, and they wanted to make an example of him.

They collectively wrote a letter expressing their outrage, and the Pro-Islamic Obama Administration was all too happy to assist. The letter was passed to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey. Dempsey publicly degraded and reprimanded Dooley, and Dooley received a negative Officer Evaluation Report almost immediately (which he had aced for the past 5 years). He was relieved of teaching duties, and his career has been red-flagged.

He had a brilliant career ahead of him. Now, he has been flagged. - Richard Thompson, Thomas More Law Center.

"All US military Combatant Commands, Services, the National Guard Bureau, and Joint Chiefs are under Dempsey's Muslim Brotherhood-dictated order to ensure that henceforth, no US military course will ever again teach truth about Islam that the jihadist enemy finds offensive, or just too informative." - Former CIA agent Claire M. Lopez (about Lt. Col Dooley).

The Obama Administration has demonstrated lightning speed to dismiss Military brass that does not conform to it's agenda, and not surprisingly, nobody is speaking up for Lt. Col. Dooley.
