Trump, and some things that came from..?

October 25, 2016

There is a viral posting about Donald Trump, and his assassination. It is a rather long essay that just happens to be on target. However, it isn’t true. At least as far as who actually wrote it. Read the whole thing because it is serious thinking from someone that has a very fertile mind. Myself, I happen to think that the obama will be the first President assassinated after he is out of office. The reasons are many, and race is only a minor one.

Life, in these not so United States is in for some dramatic changes irrespective of who is installed as President…

Stolen from Texas Fred.

I do NOT celebrate this *other* so-called holiday. You can celebrate YOUR heroes and holidays as you wish and I will celebrate MINE! I bear no ill will to those that celebrate the *other* holiday, I hope they are open-minded enough to feel the same in return.


Robert Edward Lee (January 19, 1807 – October 12, 1870) was a career military officer who is best known for having commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War.


January 30, 1975, Senate Joint Resolution 23, a joint resolution to restore posthumously full rights of citizenship to General R. E. Lee was introduced into the Senate by Senator Harry F. Byrd, Jr. (I-VA). The resolution was to restore the U.S. citizenship to Robert E. Lee effective June 13, 1865. This resolution was the result of a five year campaign to posthumously restore Robert E. Lee’s U.S. citizenship.

On September 28, 1870, Lee suffered a stroke. He died two weeks later, shortly after 9 a.m. on October 12, 1870, in Lexington, Virginia from the effects of pneumonia.

Here in Texas we take our holidays, traditions and heritage quite seriously.

Full Story

Read the entire story, Fred went way beyond what was needed to present a factual and well written piece.

56 Men Of Conviction « ELLIOT LAKE NEWS & VIEWS

I came across this well researched and finely written piece this morning. It tells the stories of the lessor known signers of the Declaration of Independence.

 I fully expect to get hammered by the Hate America First Brigade, as I also expect the blog that I found this in to be. Having said that; Those men suffered for the freedoms that we enjoy today, many did in fact die for them. These were not, just a bunch of “Old dead white men” as they are so often characterized. They had hopes, and dreams. As well as honor, and no small amount of raw courage.

When, I ask, have the NeoComms ( My term for Neo Communist) done anything that even comes close to what the men written about did?
