This is Real Torture- Don't Keep it a Secret! - 09/30/09 12:27 PM
Our NATIONAL HEROES are not afraid to speak up,Let's hear the rest of America, great read pass it on. "I got shot down over N Vietnam in 1967, a Sqdn. Commander. After I returned in 1973..I published 2 books that dealt a lot with "real torture" in Hanoi .. Our make believe president is branding our country as a bunch of torturers when he has no idea what torture is. As for me, put thru a mock execution because I would not respond... Pistol whipped on the head...same event.. Couple of days later... Hung by my feet all day. I (6 comments)
Recession increase in 2010 and guess Why? - 09/29/09 07:08 PM
Ok so I am listening to my favorite radio show in Los Angeles, 99.5 KKLA, actually he almost beats Cable TV in getting the news out fast.. Now I hear the latest missle shot from the Obama Care and this is really unbelievable...Did you know that the small business that hires new employees and does not provide health insurance gets a 8% tax charge. So now guess what the Small Business Owners are thinking for 2010...I will not hire any new employees because I can not afford insurance in this economy so I better not expand my business with new employees (9 comments)

So how much Down Payment do you really need in 2009 to get the home? - 09/26/09 07:19 PM
Yes, you will hear that you can get into a house with as little as 3-5% down from the Fianance Business but what does a buyer really need to buy a home in the South Bay and not get your offer rejected! Well the current market place depends upon what neighborhood and type of home you are looking to buy. Here are some examples of the current kinds of Buyers that are successful in getting to purchase the home they want. I am finding that my buyers in the Palos Verdes Peninsula that are shopping foreclosures or 1st time buyer homes (1 comments)
I just love this picture! - 09/25/09 10:27 PM
I was never one to get into Politics but this administration has scared most Americans that I speak to, this is not a change for the better. I never had strong feelings about Bush, I did like him and yes we all know he left a big debt but the fact that the Current President tripled our debt in 3 mos and planned this stimulus package with his cronies in Apollo 2 years ago and now has appointed more czars in 6 months than BUsh Administration did in 8 years is more than a change.. WE HAVE NOW GONE FROM THE FRYING PAN INTO (19 comments)

Check out the Article below on more about Acorn and Obama! Obama Ties to ACORN Date Back Nearly 20 Years President Obama took great pains (4 comments)

Oh Lord God, I love you so with all my heart. You are so good and I am so unworthy to receive your love so much of my days.
Please forgive me Father of my sins, of my bad temper and fits of anger, of the days I forget to pray, of the days I forget to trust in you and wait for you. Instead you have poured your grace on me when I (1 comments)

Gangster Government - 09/15/09 01:06 AM
If you have not understood the dynamics of this government's agenda then you may need to watch this video and it says it all. I am so happy to hear that there is justice in this government when ACORN stops getting funds for more whore houses and corruption... This agenda will stop at no one or nothing to show how moral-less they are and corrupt. My mother always said "Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are" THat could not ring more true in life. Or there is always that good old stand by" birds (7 comments)

This is a great website and very user friendly. I sent my letter to my senators and congressman in just 2 minutes. Well, here is another group that will keep us abreast of all the latest issues. I use to be one of those that thought oh great sex education..Now I am furious at the promotion of sex to our youth. It is one thing to educate but to pass out protection in the schools is just unbelievable.. This promotes sex just like The Entertainment industry. Now schools are telling your children to go ahead have sex everyone does and if you (5 comments)
