Let Freedom Ring

I saw this van with all this messaging about “Communist China.” 

Guy from the truck asks me:

Do you know what CCP is?

Not having heard that acronym, I started to mumble something about communism, and before I could finish, he goes:

It stands for Chinese Communist Party. 

He continued:

That’s dictatorship. Do you know what that is?

I responded:

Of course, and the people want to be free.

He goes:

Yes, freedom! We want freedom. 

It’s hard to believe that a generation ago the Cold War ended, but here we are still with people battling Communism and repression of basic rights.Β 

How lucky we are in America, Israel, and other western countries to live in freedom and have basic human rights. 

People around the world fight and die trying to earn their freedom, and we wake up with it every day, and it’s just there for us. 

It’s an incredible blessing to be free to think, speak, worship, and live how we choose.

We have to safeguard freedom and even fight for it: to have it, to keep it; and we should use it wisely to do and grow good in the world.  πŸ˜‰

@Lake Needwood July 4

Beautiful July 4th.

The great outdoors with the family. 

Hiking and sitting by the water just taking a relaxing breather.  Grateful for Independence here and in the Promised Land!  πŸ˜‰

All American Hummer

Hummer is a large mother car. 

Based on military Humvee, so rules the road. 

They should’ve never gotten rid of these. 

Big and rugged like you’d expect in America. 

This one has the red, white, and blue colors to prove it!  πŸ˜‰

Motif For The U.S. Economy

This seems like it could be a major theme of the U.S. economy.Β 

“Buy Now, Pay Later!”

And then…

“Foreclosure”

You can’t borrow infinitely.

It eventually has to be repaid. 

Where will the money come from?  

Print more.

Worth less!  πŸ˜‰

Graffiti Over Urban Blight

What can one really say about Baltimore?

It’s a city in gross decay and it needs help.

“This land is your land. This land is my land.”

This land needs a serious helping hand. 

A wealthy country where “the roads are paved in gold.”

But the inner cities are crying out in poverty, crime, and neglect.  πŸ˜‰

High Kicks Not City Riots

This is when on the Washington D.C. Mall there were high kicks and not riots.Β 

It was a carefree spot and not a war zone. 

The city wasn’t filled with anger but with hope. 

Politicians weren’t giving each other a kick in the ass every day, but rather reaching across the aisle to try and get something done. 

The country was trying to go forward, but now it’s having trouble keeping up with the problems caused by China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. 

Then we stood tall and wore our colors proud, today we wonder about the crisis of the day and what tomorrow will bring. πŸ˜‰

Can Anyone Say Election Fraud?

  • Vote rigging.
  • Dumping of valid ballots. 
  • Counting invalid late ballots.
  • Changing the postmark of ballots. 
  • Preparing phony ballots.
  • Accepting unsigned ballots.
  • Voters who voted multiple times. 
  • “Software glitches” switching votes

If this isn’t considered fraud, then why are we even bothering to hold an election in the first place? 

And moreover, why do we pretend that we’re a democracy? πŸ˜‰

Truth or Lie?

Our election system is the envy of the world?

Our pollsters know what they are talking about?

Our news media is honest and unbiased?

Our political system is rational, mainstream, and values integrity? 

Our democracy is safe and not under serious threat from within?

If The Other Side Wins The Election

Still no firm results on who will be the next President of the U.S. of A. 

I think this is how a lot of people feel…

Β Β  Β ifΒ the other side wins the election (look where he’s picking from)!

A picture is worth a thousand words. 

One thing we know for sure is that the polls and the “Fake News” media got it all wrong again! πŸ˜‰
