To date, the USA Olympians have won 100 metals in London; 42 gold, 29 silver & 29 bronze. Congratulations to our Olympic teams. Now to a less exciting, but more important topic: Today we know who the “beat Obama team” is. Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan is a great choice and Ryan can also make a good President in the future. Now the “team” needs about 70+ million friends and voters to help restore American and protect our children, grandchildren and their grandchildren from the looming $26 trillion national debt if we continue down the same path. We need a new and better path, smaller, less costly government and for all people to play on the same level playing field and get a fair shake in life. We don’t need to be further dependent on government. We just need a fair chance to succeed and live a life with liberty and a chance for the pursuit of happiness.

Two of the World’s best, and my favorite women’s soccer teams faced each other in the Olympics’ Canada vs USA semi-finals match today. Christine Sinclair, Canada’s team captain scored the first goal in the 22nd minute and then scored 2 more goals bringing her career goal total to 143.
Abby Wambach, the US’s leading scorer scored bringing her US Soccer total also to 143. At 90 minutes, the teams were tied 3 to 3. Two minutes into overtime, following 2 – 15 minutes halves, Alex Morgan headed in the winning goal for the USA…in the 122nd minute of fantastic play. I congratulate both the USA and Canadian teams for a super, fantastic, exciting game.
The USA will play against a very skilled and tough Japan team for gold in the finals on Sunday, 17 Aug at 2:45 pm. Congratulations to USA and Canada, and especially to Alex Morgan and her team mates for their win today.

Posted 4th of July 2012: Today Americans celebrate the 4th of July, the 236th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence.
We celebrate the vision, determination, wisdom and courage of our founding fathers for creating our Constitution and the standards which has allowed us to become the greatest nation on the face of the Earth.
We remember with reverence and distinction our military men and women how have fought to preserve our freedom and protect our way of life. We thank them for their service, and promise to help them transition back to their homeland and their families.
We pray that our National and State leaders will show some of the same common sense, wisdom and courage exhibited by our founding fathers, and eventually coalesce their ideas, legislative and executive actions and court rulings resulting in what is good and right for the majority of Americans and not just for a political party or special interest groups, and certainly not as vindication for those in opposition.
We appeal to all Americans and those who are legally trying to gain citizenship, to stand for what they know is right, not falling for false promises, or sitting and waiting for someone else to do your work, but to get off your dead asses and make your voice heard and your vote count, and do your part to ensure America is the great land of the free, the home of the brave and the country you will be proud of with liberty and justice for all.
Remember the old cliche´- If it’s to be – It’s up top me. So Americans, do you part. God bless all of you and God bless America.
Big Brother is watching you! So you need to be aware and do nothing to get on the watched list, the no-fly list and certainly not on the kill list, or any other list. That of course, will be difficult unless you do nothing, say nothing, write nothing or do anything that might piss off someone of authority and get you on the bad list. Have you thought of what society will be like in a hundred or even twenty years from now….heck, even four years from now 😕 I like having AC and TV and my iPhone, etc., but I also liked the World the way it use to be not so long ago.
I’m not trying to be pessimistic, extremely negative or the gloom and doom wicked witch of the West. I am trying to alert anyone who may read this article and not understand that “for the sake of security and quality control,” our liberties are being rapidly diminished and that your every move and action is about to be monitored. Your telephone/cell phone calls and your emails are monitored, you are watched as you walk down the street in many places cities now. Your credit card activity is monitored, your purchases recorded and your travels in your car can be tracked.
Some monitoring can be good of course. If your car or your cell phone is stolen, it may be found. Thieves can be identified and caught, which helps keep the cost of goods you buy down. So there is some good to all this new “big brotherism.” But remember if you scratch your ass, pick your nose or shop lift a candy bar, someone may be watching.
The new NSA Data Center approved by President Obama will be built about 20 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, will cost over two billion dollars and will be several times larger than the White House. Billions… no, trillions of pieces of data will be stored there in the future. So, unless you are a totally self sufficient hermit up in the hills, miles from nowhere, your files, your actions, your conversations will be stored in this mega Data Data Center. Now, realizing that this article will become one of those “data files,” I will go no further, and only say two more things: 1- Watch what you do and say, because you are being watched, and, 2- I liked society and the World the way it use to be, even without my iPhone and huge TV screen. Thanks Liberty.

Memorial Day is our day to remember those and the families of those who have given their lives to defend our great nation, our freedoms and our way of life. God bless and thanks to all who have fought to preserve or liberties.
