Merry Christmas

Despite what any corporation, store, or company says, I will be wishing you a Merry Christmas this season. Of course that is a whole other post topic in and of itself.

I am away in Western Tennessee near Memphis at my cousins’ house just hanging out for the next two weeks. During that time I will not be online much but will be out and about just having fun.

So I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year. And don’t forget the families who will be without a member of their family this holiday season. Remember those who are giving up their Christmas at home so you can be free. Pray for their safety and if you know someone who is spending Christmas without a loved one this season, do something nice for them. Let them know their sacrifice is appreciated.

So I hope you have a very wonderful holiday season and I will see you the first of the year.

Merry Christmas American Soldier

I just finished talking to a friend of mine whose husband is over in Iraq right now. He left about a month ago with a group deployed to the heart of the fighting. This month has been a tough month for her as these will be her first holidays away from her husband.

Here are some of her words to me about where her husband is:

“He told me that he can hear bombs outside the FOB (Field Operating Base) all the time and at least one vehicle gets hit by one of the roadside bombs each day.  They haven’t had any casualties yet but he says it’s just a matter of time.  He said the other day they were all watching two terrorists planting a IED (Improvised Explosive Device) on the road and they let them finish and then sent a helicopter in and blew them all up…”

These soldiers don’t have time to stop and celebrate the festivities this season. There will be no turkey dinner, only rations; no Christmas tree, only a barren desert; no stockings by the fireplace, only sweaty fatigues; no Christmas carols, only exploding bombs.

So as you take time to be with your family this Christmas season, take time to say a prayer for those men and women who are fighting so you can sit in peace and celebrate. Don’t let the festivities of December 25 cause you to forget about the true heroes of our land–the soldiers fighting overseas.

God bless you soldiers.

Thank You?

In a news story released by Foxnews comes one of the saddest stories I have heard recently. They report that a commercial, created by a non-profit organization to thank our troops for their sacrifice, will not be airing on NBC. NBC claims it will not air the commercial because the organization’s website is on the last shot of the commercial.

Here’s one commercial. And the other one.

I watched those and personally see nothing wrong with them. In fact, I thought they were heart-warming and very appropriate. I mean, after all, how often do we get to thank the men and women who are sacrificing so we can sit here in our warm homes and enjoy this holiday season.

The fact that NBC pulled these commercials just blows my mind. There was nothing inappropriate, extreme, or even political about it. It was simply a thank-you to our troops. This just shows me how leftist NBC is.

If you would like to see these commercials air, visit Freedoms Watch’s website and sign their petition.

After all, don’t those brave men and women deserve our thanks this Christmas?

Republican Presidential Debate: A Few Days Later

I didn’t get to see the debate on tv but I just watched it online. From what I can tell, there was a clear winner. See for yourself.

I have been a big Mike Huckabee supporter from the very beginning as most of you know. I believe he has the right policies, beliefs, and ideas to keep our country going. He has shown poise, knowledge, and confidence in every debate I’ve seen and although he hasn’t gotten near as much airtime as other candidates, I believe he has made the most headway.

So, keep your eye on Mike. He’s going to make a big impact on this race.
