Minorities

We need to show more sympathy for these people.
*
They travel miles in the heat.

*
They risk their lives crossing a border.

*
They don’t get paid enough wages.

*
They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.

*
They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
*
They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~ every day.
*
I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans
~
I’m talking about our troops!

Doesn’t it seem strange that so many are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don’t support our troops? Wouldn’t it be great if we took the $360,000,000,000 (that’s billion) we spend on illegals every year, and spent it on our troops!!!

A veteran is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for any amount, up to and including their life.

The Battered Badge

If you have 50 minutes to spare, please watch this video. It will give you some insight as to what we, in law enforcement, go through on our day to day jobs.

I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones. I was sent to the hospital twice, shot at twice (they missed both times) and sued in federal court once during my 31 years of service.

About 5 years into the job I lost a partner. He was ambushed outside his house at 1am. He lived in a changing neighborhood and didn’t want to move. He was killed because the hood rats didn’t want a sheriff living in the hood.

(Approximately 30 seconds of black screen starts the 1982 video)

Totally awesome

On Jan. 14, 2005, ESA’s Huygens probe made its descent to the surface of Saturn’s hazy moon, Titan. Carried to Saturn by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, Huygens made the most distant landing ever on another world, and the only landing on a body in the outer solar system. This video uses actual images taken by the probe during its two-and-a-half hour fall under its parachutes.

Huygens was a signature achievement of the international Cassini-Huygens mission, which will conclude on Sept. 15, 2017, when Cassini plunges into Saturn’s atmosphere.

Owen J. Baggett – August 29, 1920 – July 27, 2006

May this World War 2 hero rest in peace.

Owen John Baggett was born in 1920 in Graham, Texas. By 1941 he graduated from college and went on to work on Wall Street, but by the following year, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps (now USAF) when the United States entered the war.

A studious man, he graduated from pilot training in just five months and was sent to Burma, flying a B-24 Liberator. What happened the following year is one of those amazing stories that I love.

On March 31st, 1943, Baggett and his squadron were sent on a mission to destroy a bridge of strategic importance. On their way, the B-24s got intercepted by Japanese Zeros which hit the squadron hard. Baggetts’ plane was riddled with bullets to such an extent that the crew was forced to bail out.

While parachuting, a Japanese pilot decided that downing the plane wasn’t enough. He circled around and started shooting at the bailed out pilots, killing two of the crew. Seeing this, Baggett did the only thing he could. He played dead.

Not convinced Baggett was dead, the Zero pulled up to him at near stall speed, the pilot opening his canopy to check on his horrendous work. Not wasting any time and thinking on his feet (no pun intended), Baggett pulled out his pistol and shot 4 times with at least one hitting the pilot in the head.

45 cal. M1911 pistol

This is considered the best shot by a .45 Caliber M1911 pistol of ALL TIME.

The last thing he saw was the Zero spiraling toward earth.

When he landed, he and the other bailed out crew members were captured and sent to a POW camp where they remained till the end of the war. They were liberated by OSS agents (World War II version of the modern CIA) and Baggett was recognized as the only person during the war to shoot down a Zero with a pistol.

America’s “Snowflakes” are melting, and this time, global warming isn’t to blame.

The media may not choose to expose this atrocity, but the Media Research Center, through our Save the Snowflakes initiative, is doing much more – we’re taking action! We won’t rest until we save each and every special snowflake from the horrors of exposure to … things they simply do not agree with.

I meant this to be funny because the outcome of the election.

However

suicide is not funny.

Suicide in the United States

Each year, 34,598 people die by suicide, an average of 94 completed suicides every day.

More people die by suicide (34,598) than by homicide (18,361) in the United States.

Suicide is the eleventh-leading cause of death across all ages.

If you are feeling down and depressed, don’t give up hope. Help is jusr around the corner. Call someone and talk to them. Share your burden. Your problems will go away, maybe not right now but they will go away.
