About Me

Life is a pilgrimage of learning, a voyage of discovery, in which our mistaken views are corrected, our distorted notions adjusted, our shallow opinions deepened and some of our vast ignorances diminished. (by Stott)

"Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath?" --Thomas Jefferson (1781)

“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” ~Mark Twain

Privacy is the essence of liberty. Without it, individual rights cannot exist. Privacy and property are interlocked. If both were protected, little would need to be said about other civil liberties. If one’s home, church or business is one’s castle, and the privacy of one’s person, papers and effects are rigidly protected, all rights desired in a free society will be guaranteed. Diligently protecting the right to privacy and property guarantees religious, journalistic and political experience, as well as a free market economy and sound money. Once a careless attitude emerges with respect to privacy, all other rights are jeopardized. ~Ron Paul

I can be selfish, impatient, opinionated, and a bit more than just a little insecure. I make mistakes, sometimes I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But I am faithful so if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell can't handle me at my best

Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul.
Take time to think, it is the source of power.
Take time to read, it is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to love and be loved, it is a God-given privilege.
Take time to work, it is the price of success.

"The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave." - Patrick Henry, Speech in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.

I'd like to meet

Some of my Sodahead Friends


I love History, early America being my favorite, long drives and old movies with Westerns and old Alfred Hitcock Mysteries probably being my favorites. I enjoy hugs, good conversation, good music, reading, blogging on Sodahead, picking through yard sales and flea markets, target shooting, attending church on Sunday, playing checkers, Dunkin Donuts coffee and quiet times.

Talk to me about:
The future of this country

Favorite Quotes

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. ~ Author Unknown

"When will there be peace in the Middle East, ... when they love their children more than they hate us." ~ Golda Mier

"...Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law,” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."
~Thomas Jefferson~

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich."
"You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong."
"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift."
"You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down."
"You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred."
"You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence."
"You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."
~ William J. H. Boetcker

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~ Benjamin Franklin

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."
~ Benjamin Franklin

Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.
~ James Madison

"The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits." ~ Albert Einstein

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction." ~ Albert Einstein

"Obama hasn't given us change we can believe in - he's trying to change what we believe." ~ Arizona1950

There were protesters at the grocery store handing out pamphlets on the evils of America .
An elderly woman politely declined to take one.
A young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice the young lady said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq?"
The old woman looked up at her and said: "Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea , and a son in Vietnam ... All three died so you could have the right to stand here and badmouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella where the sun don't shine and open it."
God Bless America

[Jesus] was, as you say, "the most benevolent Being that ever appeared on Earth." ~ John Adams toThomas Jefferson, Feb 2. 1816. Cappon, Adams-Jefferson Letters, vol. 2, p. 462.

First do what is necessary, then do what is possible, and before long you will find yourself doing the impossible. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. " ~ Mark Twain

“Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
