In keeping with our daily Christmas video, I knew we had to blog about America's favorite pet - the dog.  We love dogs in America.  They are so much a part of our culture and a part of our family.  Many Christmas cards I receive include the family pet as part of the Christmas photo.  So you can imagine my horror when I saw this headline on a facebook posting last night.

I was shocked to read that the rulers in Tehran are deeming cute, cuddly little puppies as dirty. 

This is the difference in our culture and many others who wish to come to America and change us to their way of living. 

In honor of our beloved pets, I thought you would enjoy a couple of Christmas videos made just for them. 

We know this year has been "ruff" but the one who made us and made cute puppies is still on the throne!

The Heritage Foundation was a result of Ronald Reagan, and it's goal is to restore and preserve Conservative values.  Here is what they write about "Isolationism".


There are, however, many misconceptions about America’s early foreign policy. Perhaps no misunderstanding is as widespread as the belief that the Founding Fathers of the United States were isolationists who made non-interventionism their guiding principle.


The erroneous belief that America’s early foreign policy was isolationist is a fairly recent one. According to historian George C. Herring, the term isolationism did “not become fixed in the American political lexicon until the twentieth century.”[3] The term itself soon came to be understood as the antithesis of the increasingly trendy concept of internationalism. By the end of the 20th century, few objected when historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. described America’s reaction against Woodrow Wilson’s internationalism as a return to the “womb” of “familiar and soothing isolationism” which, according to Schlesinger’s Progressive narrative, had been articulated by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.[4]


What some historians and politicians dismissively (or winsomely) consider eras of virtuous and glorious isolationism are in fact better understood as periods of uncontested independence when the U.S. was afforded the luxury of following a policy of neutrality. The young American republic did try to remain outside of the torrential affairs of the old and bloody continent. In Washington’s words, the United States endeavored “to gain time for our country to settle and mature its recent institutions, and to progress, without interruption, to that degree of strength and consistency, which is necessary to give it, humanly speaking command of its own fortune.”[5] Yet this prudential policy should not be mistaken for weakness or passivity. Indeed, America’s early foreign policy was remarkably engaged, and the United States stood for freedom around the world. Why, then, have the Founders been labeled isolationist?

My Goodness!!! We sure have been duped by Progressives since Ronald Regan passed.

An Important question: Do we believe in the Constitution, and what the Founding Fathers taught, or do we believe in preemptive war? 

See what the Heritage Foundation has to say about it in the following article

"How The Progressive Movement Transformed American Politic".  Please pay particular attention to # 7 Foreign Policy.


Also keep in mind that we are told these unconstitutional  wars are to protect us. Why then have they not secured our borders, but instead put border patrol agents in prison while freeing drug dealers, given guns to drug cartels (Fast and Furious), launderrf drug cartel money, ext ? Why do they continue to use the same threats they have created from such practices to convince us to give up our liberties.


Read the Heritage Foundation's article to find out why, and who is behind it.

I have a stray dog that had 9 pups, 8 survived. I love coming home and seeing one of the pups (now 3yrs old) running around in the front yard when she sees my truck. They are my friend and protector. I would kill to protect them. Ron Paul is so off base on Iran. Now they threaten me personally. 

Merry Christmas everyone.

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
