Happy Father's Day Guys !


I would like to honor my father and all the other fathers who faithfully do what is expected of them each and every day without much fanfare. A real father knows that this is just the way it is and accepts it. Today is a day to take the time to appreciate them.

So my hat's off to all the guys out there who do exactly that. Happy Father's Day!

That's it for now. More soon !

Remember Our Soldiers


Today we honor the men and women of America's Armed Forces, past and present, for this wonderful weekend and the freedom to enjoy it. My father, my brother, my nephew, many friends and myself served our country when called.

When Dad was alive, he and Mother always made this very special day memorable because they always attended Memorial Day services. Dad served during World War II and on this special day, I thought I show you a picture that was taken of him by the Miami Herald.




My Army years were a mix the seriousness of the Vietnam War and serving as a combat medic. The war took the lives of many young men my age and injured even more. The true severity of the war is still being revealed as the veterans age and their injuries take their toll. 



Looking back, I am proud of all the members of my family who served. My prayers are with the men and women of the armed forces.


This weekend, take the time to say a prayer for these valiant warriors. It is because of their efforts that we are able to safely enjoy this weekend.

That's it for now. More soon !

White House Censors French President Fran├žois Hollande For Saying "Islamist terrorism"


Obama is so paranoid about linking terrorists to the Muslim faith that when French President Fran├žois Hollande used the phrase "Islamist terrorism" at a meeting in Washington, White House officials posted their official press video with audio of the words cut out completely.

The 8-minute clip was posted on the White House Web site and showed Hollande discussing the global terror threat at a Nuclear Security Summit meeting with Obama and advisers on Thursday.

The White House’s transcript of the event shows the French leader declared at the 4:49 minute mark that "the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq."

But rather than include Hollande’s remark in its entirety, the Obama administration posted footage in which his interpreter’s English translation of the words "Islamist terrorism" was missing.

The audio gap was first reported by the Media Research Center, a media watchdog. After initially posting the video without the edits, the White House took it down and uploaded it again with the interpreter’s voice muted, the MRC reported.

The nonprofit group reported that the White House’s official MP3 recording of the meeting was also censored, but that the transcript was not.



A user wrote in a comment on the White House’s YouTube page,"Thanks, of course, Ministry of Propaganda offices at WH for going ahead and simply posting the proof!" Another wrote: "Nice backtracking, White House. You tried to censor Hollande and you know it."

Obama, who has come under fire for refusing to say "radical Islam" or "Islamic terrorist", made three mentions of terrorism throughout Thursday’s meeting, uttering the phrases "hands of terrorism," "scourge of terrorism" and "counterterrorism."

A White House official said the audio gap was the result of a technical error that (just) happened to come as Hollande was uttering the controversial words (Nice try, no cigar).

The official told The Post, "Nothing was edited out. A technical issue with the audio during the recording of President Hollande’s remarks led to a brief drop in the audio recording of the English interpretation. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we posted an updated video online with the complete audio, which is consistent with the written transcript."

As of 6 p.m. Friday, the White House had posted footage with the words "Islamic terrorism" included.

Happy Father's Day


Happy Father's Day to my father in heaven and to all of the dads and step-dads who are there every day to watch over their families. It takes a father and a mother to raise a child as each one uses their particular knowledge and skills to help a child grow.




I was fortunate enough to have caring parents, who, despite their faults, managed to educate and raise three healthy and somewhat normal children.



The reality of it all is that if you were fortunate enough to have caring parents and you lived to be twenty-one and older, they have done their jobs.

Remember to acknowledge your parents each and every day as we never know when they will be called.

That's it for now. More soon!

Pearl Harbor - Remembering Our Soldiers


On Dec 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, killing more than 2,300 soldiers and civilians and injuring many more. The unprovoked attack woke up a sleeping giant and came to an end in 1945 when Japan surrendered to America after two devastating H-bomb drops on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.


Today is a day to remember the men and women, both past and present, of our armed forces.
