thanks for stopping by!!

Remembering those that have given all…

Your sacrifice will never be forgotten


Answer to trivia question:

“As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.”

~ Noam Chomsky



The Constitution

is the lifeblood of the American Patriot. Liberty is her child and she is your birthright. Defend her with your last breath; for without freedom, democracy shall forever suffocate beneath the dregs of tyranny.


take care
stay safe
much love
