Patriotism and American Spirit Shined at McKenna’s

I wanted to take a quick moment to recap the event today! I am so grateful how smooth every thing went. I had so many key people that stepped up and helped our event be such a success. It began with a great DJ Jason, and Amazing singing job by Lou Galterio. The rest of the event was a blast with music from Jim Hunter playing guitar and a terrific speech (if I say so myself) by my husband Doug. The crowd was really encouraged to hear about where our group began and where we are and where we plan to go in the future. The team work that I have and camaraderie and Patriotism in our group is very deep. We have made  friends here, real true friends. There was approximately 200 Patriots that came out to our event and it was such a blessing. The McKenna’s staff fed everyone well and quickly and we are grateful for that. The best part of the afternoon for me was when the candidates had a chance to speak and tell people about who they are and why they are excited to be standing up and hoping to make a difference in our community by running. Please get to know these terrific candidates and help them with financial contributions as well as your time. Finally I just want to say a special thanks to the true patriots who worked the welcome table. Carol,Roger, Sandy, Sue, and Jeanne and Ken.  Boris thank you for putting the video together and Melissa for the donation of the wine. Thanks to all my leaders who are so very dear to us and a great help. I also would love to thank my kids for working hard to help out today and had such a great spirit. WE do this for them. Thank you to all who came, Keep up the momentum and dont give up the fight. We are making a difference!

God Bless,

    It was great to see everyone one year after it all started, Ground Zero if you will, for the SF9.12, to celebrate all we’ve accomplished in 2009. It’s good to stop and take stock every now and then, pat ourselves on the back for a job well done, and harden our resolve for the battles yet to fight.

    Break’s over.

    1) Pelosi, Reid, and Obama are looking to have the Health Care bill — in whatever form — passed before Easter. Don’t be surprised if the vote is held on Easter Sunday! Remember last Christmas? New Year’s?

    2) The special election to seat Ed Lynch in Florida’s 19th is on April 13th, a few days more than 1 month away. Get involved with us next weekend phone banking for his campaign, walking precincts a few weeks after that, and poll watching on election day.

    3) Glenn Beck’s all day event in Orlando, called “the American Revival” is on March 27th, from 10am to 5pm. Tickets are still available.

    . . . . . .and this is just the next 30 days! Resolve to do your part TODAY!

  6. Umm I must confess the guy in the picture is Hot! – Yea and he is my hubby too! Lucky me! Thanks to all who came out it was a great time. See you today at the Kill the Bill Rally at 4pm.

    WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out !

    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
    For his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

    Dear President Obama,

    My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
    I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
    One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man
    So here goes.
    I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
    I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
    You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like: ” We’re no longer a Christian nation” ” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even Announced to the world,” America is mean-Spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching That nonsense to 23 generations of our War dead buried all over the globe who
    Died for no other reason than to free a Whole lot of strangers from tyranny and Hopelessness.)
    I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
    After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”
    Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.
    I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
    Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.
    Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue . You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
    And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
    One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.
    You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
    You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
    And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…

    Harold B. Estes

    When a 95 year old hero of the “the Greatest Generation” stands up and speaks out like this, I think we owe it to him to send his words to as many Americans as we can. Please pass it on.
