It's Valentine's Day in America: Will you remember me?


I don’t know what happened.  I have no idea when you stopped loving me.


Now you turn your eyes away from me.  When you do look towards me, you look with disgust.  I cringe and feel the pain of your rejection.  It is so hard to watch our relationship fall apart.  My heart breaks for the love we once had.


I want to scream,  “Why are you doing this?"

Don’t you remember the good times? 

What about the battles we fought and won? 

Do you remember when we stood proudly together and held hands when the going got rough? 

We celebrated our anniversary every year with a huge party.  Friends and families would gather together with us and we were so proud of all that we had accomplished.

We cried when our son came home from war and we buried him with the others who had died fighting for freedom. 

When our neighbors were ridiculed, we stood up for them and marched to their defense. 

Or what about the times when we sacrificed for others who were down and out or were hit by sudden storms in their lives? 

Is that what happened?  We always rushed to others in their time of need and together we helped them rebuild their lives.  We were always giving to others.  I guess we got so involved in helping others, that we lost sight of our own relationship and we didn't protect it as we should have.


Where did we go wrong when we did so much that was right?


When did you stop loving me?


Could it have been when you no longer prayed for me?  Remember when we prayed together and you were not ashamed to do so publicly when needed?  You were never ashamed to admit you loved God.


Or do you think it might have happened when you turned your back on the children so you could continue to do what you wanted to do?  They cried and moaned, yet you just turned away from their pleadings and ignored them.  I could not believe it when you hardened your heart towards those precious babies of ours.  I still feel their pain and feel the loss of their lives around me.


Was it when the drugs were easy to get and you explored a new world of “its all about me” with your new friends?  You didn't care about anything except what would make you feel good.  We pleaded with you to stop, but you were hooked and nothing would pull you away from the dark road you went down.


Maybe it was when you found the world wide web of pornography?  You changed and called me a prude.  You said it would not change anything and we should declare "free love" for all.  "Free love" instead put shackles on your heart.


Or maybe it was the day you threw your fist in the air and declared, “God is dead!”  I was shocked that you could say such things.  He had been the one you trusted and believed in for so long.  We had built a new life together on the foundation of Godly principles and life was good.  You turned your back on Him and then you turned your back on me.


And I think maybe it had something to do with your new friends.  You listened to those who said not to worry about your old fashioned ways.  Change was good and times were new.  The past was the past and the future would hold a better life for you.  You believed their lies and you walked away from the ways of your past.


And look where all that has gotten us.


We are in distress.  The life that we made together is now on rocky soil.  We are financially, emotionally and spiritually broke; our home is not worth what we owe on it; and yet you keep spending more and more every day.  You are living the good life while our home is destroyed under us.  Our children and grandchildren are watching as you party and pretend that life is good; things aren’t so bad; and we just need to sit down and shut up while you go about your life.  We are scared and we want you back to protect us and lead the way to our future.  You once were strong and now you are weak. But -- you do not see your weakness.  That scares me more than anything else.


It’s Valentine’s Day in America.  Expensive roses will be sent to loved ones; boxes of chocolate will be opened with delight; and restaurants will be filled with couples toasting to their love.  I wish them all happiness while my heart breaks for the love I lost.


I hope as you celebrate Love in America today, you will remember me. Will you raise a glass and toast all the wonderful memories we once shared.  And maybe, just maybe, you’ll make a decision to come back to me?  I hope so.  Time is running out and I'm here waiting on you.


It’s Valentine’s Day in America.  Will you remember me?

My Political Valentine , a little over three years ago my Wife and I Joined Millions of Patriots in Washington D.C., We walked the Halls of Congress, We Meet with our Elected Representatives, One direct Question I ask of My Congressman as I pointed to the White House, "WE HAVE A REAL PROBLEM,WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?" Answer, WE just have to vote them out. We Marched, Rallyed, We prayed, We were even told BY THE ("ONE") " I didnt even know you were there",  The million plus  went back to our homes all over this Great Land, We worked  Hard, many politicians all over this Country Were VOTED out in 2010. We enjoyed small Victories all over the United States, a very short lived Victory, As of Today This Describes My Valentine ( My Country) The Constitution has Basically been Destroyed. Ban of our Flag, Prayers, Speech, Christianity, food, drink, Independence, Oil, Electricity, Coal, Automobile, Space Travel, Freedom in the class room for our Children, A health Care System for whom all were given Health Care, if Needed, to the most cruel and Inhumane Health Care System known anywhere  in the world. "WE THE PEOPLE" KNOW THE ANSWERS ARE NOT IN WASHINGTON D.C.  Only by the Grace of God and Love for our  Country Will we have  America on Valentine Day in 2013.  Time is Short We Are At The Eleventh Hour, As Our Governor Would Say " LETS GET TO WORK".

ONE LAST THOUGHT, HAS The Main Stream Media Ever Reported On The Largest, Cleanest, Most Well Organized , Ever Assembled in the U.S.A. Or any where else??   I DIDN'T THINK SO. Give Billie another pat on the Back, She deserves it.

America is coming back, but it is a painful rebirth.  Too long we lived complacent and unaware lives.  The pain of loss is now all arounfd us,  but the strength of Patriots is increasing mightily each day.  This is not the time for Sunshine Patriots. 

On Valentine's Day speak to one new person about your efforts, your concerns...invite them to a meeting or to have coffee with you to discuss concerns...tell them to bring a frind with them.

Thank you for the post Billie. We are here and have not forgotten where we've come from and where we want to remain. We will fight the good fight...

I love America. I pray at least two times a day for this country. I'm beyond worried. Our beloved country is being hit by too many things. We have commies right here, we have Muslims who hate us right here and are using creeping Sharia Law. We have Judges who are not following the constitution. We have a man in the White House who actually HATES America and wants to  fundamentally change it. We have Eugenics going on. Yes, My beloved country we must do something  and soon. By the way has anyone else checked out DirectDemocracy with Gerald Celente? would like input.

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…
