The Field Narrows

Today is Saturday Jan 21st, 2012
The South Carolina Primary will be held today.
Michelle Bachman is OUT
Herman Cain is OUT
John Huntsman is OUT
Rick Perry is OUT

Mitt Romney -Newt Gingrich - Richard Rick Santorum - Ron Paul REMAIN - at least for now.

Bt the end of the day and going into Florida we likely will be narrowed once again and a Nominee will emerge over the next few weeks.

I was reading TOWNHALL.com this morning and came across the following
endorsement of great interest and I believe it is well spoken, direct
and thoughtful.

Understanding that the field of candidates have narrowed greatly in recent weeks the fact remains that our next President will have a monumental task in leading US (us)forward to face global challenges and at the same time restoring the damage inflicted on the American populus since 2008.

Please read and decide for yourselves, vote your conscience and convictions.

The ten questions Norris poses below are pertinent, thoughtful and
extremely important in my view.

I want my country back.

Perry out
Huntsman out
Cain out
Bachmann out

Your preferred candidate for President of the United States may no longer be in the race. If that's the case for you, then you have a decision to make.
Whether you agree with the following endorsement or not - it is still worth the time and our futures for you to inform yourselves, friends and families of the following Endorsement made by Chuck Norris.

*M.R. Allen*

Our republic as our Founding Fathers created it is under assault from extremists outside our country and anti-constitutionalists inside our country. Combine that with the flailing American economy and global markets and you see that Western civilization is on the brink, as experts and all the GOP presidential candidates agree.
President Barack Obama has tried and failed miserably to fix our economy, deepening us and our posterity into more than $6 trillion of additional national debt -- something he criticized former President George W. Bush for as "unpatriotic" and "irresponsible." Yet the unemployment rate remains at a higher level than it was when Obama was elected, and the dollar is as unstable as the Middle East.
Now is not the time to be mincing through minutiae and fighting with fellow party members. Rome is burning, and we need to appoint the best firefighters possible to rush in and put out the fire. What's critical at this point is to appoint a commander in chief who can clearly lead America to a more solvent and secure future.
No man or candidate is perfect. We all have skeletons in our closets. If buried bones become unforgivable bones of contention, the world will never know another Benjamin Franklin or King David. We must remember that we're electing a president, not a pastor or pope. The mainstream media and a billion-dollar campaign coffer are on the president's side, so we need a veteran of political war who already has fought Goliath, because he will be facing Goliath's bigger brother.
In the past few editions of my weekly column, I detailed 10 questions to find our next president, in no particular order of importance. I proposed that the name of the candidate that fills the majority of the answers deserves readers' votes.
1) Who is most committed to follow and lead by the U.S. Constitution?
2) Who has the greatest ability to rally, unify and mobilize citizens across political and societal spectrums?
3) Who has the best working comprehension of America?
4) Who has the best ability to influence a volatile world away from the brink of destruction?
5) Who has clear and present moral fortitude?
6) Who has the best chance of beating President Obama, in and outside of debates?
7) Who has the best abilities to lead Washington politics and politicians?
8) Who has the best plan and leadership ability to restore America's economy?
9) Who is the most fiscally prudent?
10) Who has demonstrated the highest regard for human life?
My wife, Gena, and I sincerely believe that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is the answer to most of those questions and deserves our endorsement and votes.
We agree with our friend and governor of the great state of Texas, Rick Perry, who suspended his campaign and endorsed Gingrich. He said Newt "has the heart of a conservative reformer." We believe that Newt's experience, leadership, knowledge, wisdom, faith and even humility to learn from his failures (personal and public) can return America to its glory days. And he is the best man left on the battlefield to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his campaign machine.
I would only challenge and call on Newt to fulfill the rallying strategy he outlined in South Carolina in November by utilizing the expertise and skill sets of the other GOP presidential candidates (even those who have bowed out) in his future administration. Newt explained:
"I do approach this whole campaign, I think, differently from everybody else. We have a number of friends who are also running. We have no opponents except Barack Obama. I think that's very important. I think (Abraham) Lincoln was very wise, as was captured in a book called 'Team of Rivals.' ... Literally everybody who was his opponent ended up in the Cabinet because he needed all of them in order to be able to put together the political power during the crisis that we faced. I would say the same thing. I don't know of a single person currently running who wouldn't be a very effective member of an administrative team and who doesn't have real talent and, in some way ... a unique strength. So I don't have any opponents on the Republican side."
As Gov. Perry said during his "strategic retreat" (citing Gen. Sam Houston) from the GOP presidential race, "this mission is greater than any one man."
I'm tired of watching our country be torn to shreds by those who think the answer is more government debt and control. I'm tired of being in bondage to a tax system that robs U.S. citizens as the king of England did before the Revolution. I'm tired of watching our sovereignty be sold by foreign loans and loose borders. And I will not sit back and merely watch this decay and degradation of the U.S. and then hand it over to my children and grandchildren to deal with.
That is why Gena and I have committed the rest of our lives to help Old Glory rise again to its heights of splendor. And that is why we are endorsing and standing with Newt Gingrich, because we believe he can lead all of us who have committed to the same.
If you're ready to keep fighting the good fight and once and for all restore our republic, then I invite you to join Gena and me by endorsing, rallying behind and voting for Newt Gingrich as GOP nominee and then president of the United States.

Lyla Grace 6 Months

Happy Baby Girl!

The dolly in front of her is "Sophie" My Christmas Gift to her in 2011 !!
Yeah, She likes it !!


Why ? Why Do We Allow This To Happen ?

About Time Changes Are Made-

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.

Monday we learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed while citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

Big Rocks

Dear All:
In life there are choices we make that OFTEN cause us pain and inner
turmoil. Such is Life.
Life is hard. Life is unfair. Lessons learned come at a price.
Life is a series of choices. Responsibility is mine. I offer this to
you as a reminder that it is never to late to examine our lives and make BETTER choices.

I don't always do it, I have often failed miserably, but am trying to
focus now on "big rocks".
Go to GOD, He is OUR strength, OUR Heavenly Father,

I am a sinner, but am saved through GRACE, Praise be to GOD.
I am Forgiven.


One day an expert in time management was speaking to a group of
business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration those
students will never forget. As he stood in front of the group of high
powered overachievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz." Then he pulled out
a one-gallon, wide mouthed Mason jar and set it on the table in front
of him.
> Then he produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully
placed them, one at a time, into the jar. When the jar was filled to the top
and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, "Is this jar full?"
> Everyone in the class said, "Yes." Then he said, "Really?" He
reached under the table and pulled out a bucket of gravel. Then he dumped
some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work
themselves down into the space between the big rocks.
> Then he asked the group once more, "Is the jar full?" By this
time the class was on to him. "Probably not," one of them answered. "Good!"
he replied. He reached under the table and brought out a bucket of
sand. He started dumping the sand in the jar and it went into all of the
spaces left between the rocks and the gravel.
> Once more he asked the question, "Is this jar full?" "No!" the
class shouted. Once again he said, "Good." Then he grabbed a pitcher of
 and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim. Then he looked at the class and
 asked, "What is > the > point of this illustration?" One eager beaver raised his hand and
said, "The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really > hard > you can always fit some more things in it!"
> "No," the speaker replied, "that's not the point.
> The truth this illustration teaches us is: If you don't put the big rocks > in
 first, you'll never get them in at all," What are the 'big rocks'
in your life? Your children....Your loved ones ... Your education.... Your
> dreams.... A worthy cause ... Teaching or mentoring others.....
Doing > things that you love... Time for yourself..... Your health....Your
Significant > other.
> Remember to put these BIG ROCKS in first or you'll never get them
in at
> If you sweat the little stuff (the gravel, the sand) then you'll
fill your life with little things you worry about that don't really matter,
and you'll never have the real quality time you need to spend on the big,
important stuff (the big rocks).
> So, tonight, or in the morning, when you are reflecting on this
short story, ask yourself this question:

What are the 'big rocks' in my life?
> Then, put those in your jar first.

This is the first stab at putting this song together - Collaberastion in process - It appears there are some updated versions of this song - This DOG song as set down by a Confederate veteran in Dublin, Laurens County Georgia and handed down to me by his great grandson:

My father, Bill Allen and youngest son (my brother Vic age about 10 ) traveled throughout GA in the early '60s to various political meetings. Vic was told the story and he came up with the tune played his six string flat top and entertained the crowds.

Onc't th' dawgs had a meetin; They come from far and wide...
Some come from city swells and some from th' mount'nside.

Before they cud be seated, they had to sign a book,
Then each Dawg had to take and hang his asshole on a hook.

Now as they got assembled, each Mother's Son and Sire,
A mangy little pooch outside began to holler "FIRE!!!"

So now they wuz a panic, they hadn't had time to look,
But each one ran and grabbed hisself an asshole off a hook....

A poodle got a pointer's ass and a bulldog got a houn'
That's why a white dogs ass is black and a black dog's ass is brown...

That's why when they're in the field or walkin' down the streets
A dawg will stop to sniff and smell of every dog's ass he meets.

And when you give him T-bone steak or ripe and juicy bone,
He'll leave it to smell of another dawg's ass--in hopes he's found his OWN !

After collaborating with brother Keith ( KP ) this morning he came up with the
correct and final version of the song.


I think you got it EXACTLY like Vic sang it !

I'll edit my version to fit yours !

No I don't remember his name I just remember listening to it on your tape recorder!

Here Goes my remembered version:

Once the dogs had a Meetin
They came from far and wide
some came from city swells
some from the mountain side
Before they were admitted
or in the hall to look
each dog had to take his asshole off
and hang it on a Hook
before they were seated
Mother,sons and sire
One Mangy little Pooch stood up
and Began to Holler FIRE
Up they got and started
they didn't have time to look
so each dog at random
took an asshole off the hook
a fiest got a Poodles ass
a poodle got a Hounds
Thats why a white dogs ass is black
and a Black dogs ass is brown
Thats why when you see a dog
Just prowling around the streets
he'll stop and take a leak and
smell of every dogs ass he meets
Thats why when you feed him supper
a steak or juicy Bone
He'll leave it to smell of another dog ass
and hope he finds his own!!!

Thats IT !!!!---kp

Gun Control

The world's largest army... America 's hunters!

I had never thought about this.

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin .

Allow me to restate that number.

Over the last several months, Wisconsin 's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

More men under arms than in Iran .

More than in France and Germany combined.

These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan 's 700,000 hunters,
all of whom have now returned home.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that
the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
The point?

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.

Hunting - it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security.

That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

Food for thought when next we consider gun control.
