Should we trust each other?

December 3, 2013

Do you trust your neighbor? Your co-workers? The employee swiping your credit card at a store or restaurant? Members of your local government? Drivers on the road? A new poll by the Associated Press......

In spite of all the controversy over Viet Nam--our efforts took a big bite out of communism and in my opinion started the downward slide of the iron curtain. Iraq caused a complete lack of trust in our Government for many.

The information following comes from fish we like to shoot with a rifle. For some reason my bud bill seems to think I need to provide information about my military service. My disdain for his deception should serve as evidence that I have served this country. He claims that he was shot in the bum and that is where he received his purple heart medal, eh. My contention is that he is a total fake and not even an American citizen. If he is a citizen, he is a transplant. All really need to look at this to expose billyboy blue for what he is, a fake. I know this doesn't follow the original post but needs to be said again.

My Vietnam experience has been well documented on here. Started tour on May 15, 1968 at Bien Hoa Province, South Vietnam..My rank is Captain, Us Army. My MOS {training} is 4800D Maintenance Officer for Ordnance and Civil Affairs...Units served; A Co. Army Depot Long Binh Army S>P>T>, CMD Saigon, 1st LOG CMD, USARV... Medals: Purple Heart

The Obama Legacy:

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know my Rights,(Obama)Someone Else is to Blame,(Obama) and I'm a Victim(Obama)

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar can sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know my Rights, Someone Else is to Blame, and I'm a Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student; but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion..

Don't know who the Author is of this piece: but wanted to share it.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, why life isn't always fair, and how, on occasion, maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children are in charge) .

Yup there are the liberals out in full force DEMANDING proof from everyone.. These guys voted for a guy who had to be FORCED to show his birth certificate.. The guy they voted for sealed his college records.. Its apparent he was not Proud of what was in them..and then their is NOtea.. the lady with kids..living in mums house.. drawing welfare, food stamps and all the rest of the free and still screaming for FREE medical for everyone..

But then this he/she never worked so they have no idea that when you have a business you need to pay the bills. NT4M doesnt pay her bills mama and the Government pay his way..

No shame in being a welfare qeen anymore.. They brag about it..

willgrr, Veritas, NT4M:

When it comes to snark delivery, you guys are the pros, while the rest of us are seemingly stuck in amateur night.

That's not necessarily a compliment.

NT4M, your songs make me feel as though I've been hearing the jingling for more than 12 days.

Brave effort, but I don't mind. Keep them coming.

It can't be something your proud of or want anyone to see again. There's no possibility of have a constructive conversation with you. I will relent for now.

Willgarr,

You and friends want to politicize religion. Saying that religion is in ya'll conservatives and recognizing God would be bowing down to all conservatives and republicans. God gave us the choice to accept him or not. It's not political.

Every day I wake up, still breathing is a second chance. Not liberal or conservative, just another chance to hopefully do better for whoever.

If you hadn't noticed God gave you another chance to be civil. It doesn't matter if you served in the military or if you're even and an American citizen, He forgives your failures and offer everlasting salvation if you will accept him.

Notea your nothing more then a punk kid with a big mouth.. female living off the system.. Welfare food stamps and the like..]

Your a taker, lazy and a taxpayer leech. You own nothing, you have no job, you live with your kids in someone else house, you pig out on fat food all day and do nothing.. your the poster child for the liberal/democrat party..

defend that Garr.. Tell me why he had to attack the portion of the population who was doing the American thing?

Why did he attack these people? Why did he lie to these people?? He deserves the 27 years Mandella spent in prison for what he has done to my friends and neighbors..

Come on back Garr tell us all why that was OK for him to do....

Talk about discrimination.. Obama has just discriminated aginst the working class who were minding their own business working, buying insurance and being responsible.. He*****all over them.. Cancelled their insurance and left them out to go find another policy..

That SOB deserves to be brought up on war crimes on the American people.. Hate isnt a strong enough word for that creep anymore..
