Sacrifice and the Future.

We must never forget!………….

Meet Landon.

His father, Marine LCPL Carpenter, gave his life defending our country in Afghanistan last year, a month before his son was born. Baby Landon’s Mom wants his story to be known. Take a moment to share this photo with your friends and reflect on the price of freedom.

Never forget the price of freedom.

 

Back to the Moon—For a Fraction of the Old Price

Gingrich is right that America needs to retain its lead in space.

To recap: During the Jan. 26 Republican primary debate in Florida, Mr. Gingrich proposed that we return to the moon within eight years to establish a lunar colony, asserting that the benefits to America would be tremendous. Mitt Romney retorted that if somebody came to him to ask for “a few hundred billion dollars” to return to the moon, he would say: “You’re fired.”

Thank You, I needed the one single and clear reason to reject Mitt Romney as my candidate and that will do it.

Twentieth Century, the three sterling accomplishments of the USA; WWII, Winning the Cold War and the Race to the Moon. Creating the largest welfare state in the history of Mankind doesn’t win us any medals, its more of a handicap that makes the others things we have done more spectacular.

God-damn that white bread bland bastard, doesn’t he dream? What is this country to him, a cog in China.inc? The riches, the mysteries of the universe, the future of Mankind is out there and we have the technology to do it, to go there. So show me something that will change my mind, prove to me I’m wrong about “I_Like_To_Liked” Mitt Romney. In what way would he be any different than the current socialist how is so busy striping the country bare to funnel money to his cronies and buying votes.

One Response to Sacrifice and the Future.

  1. So, the question is do I suffer from writer’s block? The answer is no, because I am not a writer, thus, impossible! I just suffer from non-writer’s block, nope, not that either. You see, I am an entrepreneur who writes about his knowledge, observations, education, research, innovations, thoughts, and various business, sports, hobbies, nonprofit, and philanthropy endeavors. The reality is that until I became a writer I had never really met any writers that I actually liked as a person. Today, I can no longer deny that I have become a writer and author, but I still don’t think of myself as one.
