Checking in

Hello all.

I am checking in with you. I’ve been busy for the last year getting prepared to retire. It has been a good run. But, after 34 years of service it is time for me to take a knee and catch my breath.

I am thankful to all those who have stood beside me throughout the years. Karen, you have been there for me for 27 years. Thank you.

So, as I transition to the “post military me” I will check in on occasion.



In 1790, the Congress of the United States enacted that:

“If any person or persons, owing allegiance to the United States of America, shall levy war against them, or shall adhere to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States, or elsewhere, and shall be thereof convicted on confession in open Court, or on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act of the treason whereof he or they shall stand indicted, such person or persons shall be adjudged guilty of treason against the United States, and SHALL SUFFER DEATH; and that if any person or persons, having knowledge of the commission of any of the treasons aforesaid, shall conceal, and not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President of the United States, or some one of the Judges thereof, or to the President or Governor of a particular State, or some one of the Judges or Justices thereof, such person or persons, on conviction, shall be adjudged guilty of misprision of treason, and shall be imprisoned not exceeding seven years, and fined not exceeding one thousand dollars.”

President Obama traded a deserter (quoted below) for five prisoners. These terrorists are soon to be released back to the war front to command our enemy.

…life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american…The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. … The US army is the biggest joke the world has to laugh at. It is the army of liars, backstabbers, fools, and bullies… I am sorry for everything. The horror that is america is disgusting.

The President sighted that he would not leave an American behind as the major rational for the horrible trade. The irony of that notion is not lost on the families of those that died in Benghazi.

Is this not the very definition of treason?

“To knowingly trade captive enemy for a deserter.”

Served as President with “honor and distinction”…. my ass.


Hi guys,

Some may have noticed my absence from Facebook (others haven’t.. and still other don’t care).

I could go on about how Facebook keeps changing it’s privacy settings, blaa blaa blaa. But, to clear things up I’m taking a much needed hiatus from social media. I may come back or I may not.

I’ve been busy being a husband, father, grandfather and working on several suicide prevention mobile apps. SaveThe22 being the latest project.

Thanks for being friends.

call me sometime (;

Happy Thanksgiving to all

Thank you pig for bacon. (; you rock!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Jeff and the gang.

Thanksgiving Proclamation

[New York, 3 October 1789]

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be– That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

The truth is…

Once in a while even the worlds biggest liar comes off script and

Tells the truth.

“Now, you’re absolutely right that there have been significant numbers of deportations. That’s true. But what you are not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law.”

Welcome to Obama’s America.

Right, it looks nothing like the utopian state you were promised.

America the beautiful

This is the divide and conquer “hope and change”. Black/Whites Young/Old Hispanic, Women, Gay, the 1%, middle class… it’s endless the many ways he can divide us.

And the media are the happy accomplices.

No,no, please keep the Obama bumper sticker. It looks nice and says more about you than it says about me.

Enjoy your “hope and change” you deserve every bit of it.
