Has this recent election results (Nov. 4, 2014) indicated the American people are finally on a road to “restoration” of ideals, principles and common sense! I think so! I also realize that if the “establishment Republicans” think the election was an indication that they need to cooperate with the anti-American, socialist agenda of President Obama, they will throw away this opportunity of sanity that the American people have given them! If McConnell throws this opportunity away, he should be tried for treason, along with all the others that have recently attempted to usurp the best system the world has ever experienced!
Remember when Hollywood was filled with patriots?

On July 1, 1898, at San Juan Hill, Colonel Theodore Roosevelt charged forth on horseback to lead the Rough Riders up the hill.

“Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction, ‘I served in the United States Navy,'” wrote President John F. Kennedy in August 1963. In October 1941, Kennedy was appointed an Ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve and joined the staff of the Office of Naval Intelligence. Seeking combat duty, Kennedy transferred on 23 February as a replacement officer to Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron TWO, which was based at Tulagi Island in the Solomons. Traveling to the Pacific on USS Rochambeau, Kennedy arrived at Tulagi on 14 April and took command of PT 109 on 23 April 1943. On 30 May, several PT boats, including PT 109 were ordered to the Russell Islands, in preparation for the invasion of New Georgia. After the invasion of Rendova, PT 109 moved to Lumbari. Kennedy was later awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for his heroics in the rescue of the crew of PT 109, as well as the Purple Heart Medal for injuries sustained in the accident on the night of 1 August 1943.
Despite his Quaker pacifist upbringing, Richard Nixon answered the call of duty and volunteered to be close “to where the action was.” He joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 29 and was commissioned as a Naval officer in 1942. Nixon volunteered for sea duty and reported to Commander Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet where he was assigned as Officer in Charge of the South Pacific Combat Air Transport Command at Guadalcanal in the Solomons and later at Green Island.

NAVAL SERVICE Jimmy Carter, (the man that is no longer the worst American President)
On Wyoming, Carter served as radar officer and CIC officer. Detached when Wyoming was decommissioned on 23 July 1947, he was assigned that day to another similarly used battleship, USS Mississippi (E-AG 128) as Training and Education Officer. After completing two years of surface ship duty, Carter chose to apply for submarine duty. Accepted, he began the six-month course at the U.S. Navy Submarine School, Submarine Base, New London, Connecticut from 14 June to 17 December 1948.
When Admiral Hyman G. Rickover (then a captain) started his program to create nuclear powered submarines, Carter wanted to join the program and was interviewed by Rickover. On 1 June 1952, Carter was promoted to Lieutenant. Selected by Rickover, Carter was detached on 16 October 1952 from K-1 for duty with the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, Division of Reactor Development in Schenectady, New York. From 3 November 1952 to 1 March 1953, he served on temporary duty with the Naval Reactors Branch, U. S.

In addition to filmmaking while in uniform, he served in New York City in 1944 to participate in a war bond drive. He returned to Culver City. His film unit eventually helped to make 300 training and propaganda films and was responsible for 3,000,000 feet of combat footage.

Reagan was recommended for promotion to major on Feb. 2, 1945, but never pinned on gold oak leaves. He returned to Fort MacArthur, Calif., where he was separated from active duty on Dec. 9, 1945.
It was September 2, 1944. Lieutenant Junior Grade George Bush, 20 years old, was a pilot with Torpedo Squadron Fifty-One (VT-51 ) aboard the aircraft carrier USS San Jacinto (CVL-30), a light carrier which was deployed in the North Pacific.
Just two years earlier, on June 12, 1942, Bush had graduated from high school and joined the Navy as a seaman, second class. But, in less than a year, he completed flight training at NAS Corpus Christi, Texas, was commissioned an ensign, and went on to fly TBM Avengers with VT-51. For a time, he was the youngest pilot in Naval Aviation.
George W. Bush joined the 147th Fighter Interceptor Group of the Texas Air National Guard on May 27, 1968, during the Vietnam War. He committed to serve until May 26, 1974, with two years on active duty while training to fly and four years on part-time duty. In his 1968 Statement of Intent (undated), he wrote, “I have applied for pilot training with the goal of making flying a lifetime pursuit and I believe I can best accomplish this to my own satisfaction by serving as a member of the Air National Guard as long as possible.”
In November 1970, Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, commander of the 111th Fighter Squadron, recommended that Bush be promoted to First Lieutenant, calling him “a dynamic outstanding young officer” who stood out as “a top notch fighter interceptor pilot.” He said that “Lt. Bush’s skills far exceed his contemporaries,” and that “he is a natural leader whom his contemporaries look to for leadership. Lt. Bush is also a good follower with outstanding disciplinary traits and an impeccable military bearing.” Bush was promoted.
WAR ON AMERICA
On January 20, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama officially began an unrelenting war on America. Trained as a Communist “community organizer” aka “communist agitator”, inculcated by the most learned Marxist professors and revolutionaries, Barry Sotero learned how to best undermine and destroy the greatest nation in the world.
His war is not over…
Some men serve their nation; others serve themselves.
Judge a man not by his words, but his deeds. Actions speak louder than…
When a man with absolutely no distinction has been elected to the highest office in the land, it signifies of how far the greatest nation in the world has fallen…
…but the last election gives us some hope again!
Here we go round the prickly pear Prickly pear prickly pear Here we go round the prickly pear At five o’clock in the morning.
Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom
PASS IT ON.
Have you heard about the Social Security card and number used as a display in thousands 0f newly sold wallets? No! Well, here is the story as published in Yahoo News:
Thousands of people used Whitcher’s number (078-05-1120), despite the fact the display cards were half the size of actual cards, printed in all red and said “specimen” on them. Use of Whitcher’s number peaked in 1943 when 5,755 used it as their own, and it was used as late as 1977, the Social Security Administration notes. Overall, more than 40,000 used the number, as the wallets were mass-produced and sold in department stores across the country.
Based on the SSA’s post about this number, it doesn’t seem Whitcher ran into too much trouble because people used her number, though the FBI apparently showed up at her house once to ask about the situation. She was amazed people took the number in the first place, according to a quote posted to the SSA website:
“They started using the number. They thought it was their own. I can’t understand how people can be so stupid. I can’t understand that.”
