I love my Country but I hate the Government

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 2:31pm 1 Comment

The constitution says "We the people" not "I the king and my stupid minions" my representative and government are not representing what we want to see happen, ITS TIME TO RECALL THE WHOLE DAMN GOVERNMENT AND START OVER, or they can have the same healthcare and 401K's we do.I pledge not to vote for any candidates that supported socialized healthcare.

I promise to vote against any one supporting the health care plan!

My daughter made it! Her and her div worked thier butts off and earned all thier flags! just short of the Cheerio cup! Im proud of her and her Div 077.

I like what I see in my daughter now, theres a confidence that wasnt there. I no longer get, yeps and nopes or huhs? for answers. Yeah she still disappears into her computer, but at least she'll come outa her room to do it.. She's ready to do her A school, and more....

Boot Camp

Boot Camp. This is where the amazing Navy transformation from civilian to Sailor happens. You’ll report to Recruit Training Command (RTC) in Great Lakes, Illinois. Be advised: RTC is a huge campus, but you’ll never feel alone. On it are hundreds of recruits just like you finding… Continue

Hey Clay - I'm sure he'll be fine but probably not liking it, we're from the Norfolk area so you know we're used to mild weather. He finished up last part of ATT last night and he now on the HOLD list like everyone else, Got our fingers crossed for Dam Neck he's an FC.

ha! hope she gets that out of her system...our son went all the way to hawaii!

That is interesting information about your daughter's car. Our son graduated one year ago in January and at that point, single ET and FC students were allowed to have their car there. Our son sold his thinking/hoping he was going to Japan but ended up in Hawaii...not all bad! It's nice that you live so close to the base -

Just seen your blog on the government....couldn't agree more!

Hey Clay, hope all is well. I think we are all so bust trying to defeat Obamacare that we don't have time for NavyDads or any other website. I for one am tuned to Rush, Mark Levine and Sean Hannity to get marching orders on what to do to fight from our country going Socialist. We will be back of course. Luis

Don't know the specifics, but if I had to is either 1 of 2 things; 1) there are a some folks that are not meeting expectations physically or 2) (most likely) there are a few real screw-ups in the unit, and right or wrong 1 acts like a fool or really draws the attention of the RDC..........everyone pays the price. They have to learn to work as a team/unit, and some folks need a bit more "encourgement" then others. I was in back before "the PC Police" ran the Army and it wasn't all that rare to see an entire platoon in basic out doing PT at 0300 because the soldier on fire watch fell asleep or other reason found by a DI.

I "celebrated" my 18th birthday in Great Lakes. Getting mail with cards, many of them homemade, got me through it.

Hey Clay ~ My daughter has been sending our son cards about once a week ~ she makes them in school, and I print them. Nothing Hallmark-ish.. just some pics and a note or two. It is saying that he is loved, and how proud we are of them all for the sacrifice they are making to protect us!

I remember my 19th, 20th and 21st birthday was in the "field" sleeping under the tree's and snow of Germany, in the middle of march .. under snow, ice, wind.. it sucked! No other words to describe it.. well there are, but :) .. anyway.. they are 3 of the birthdays that I remember Most! All my Army Buddies were there with me... it was all of them that we survived many a cold night! And knowing we would get mail when we jumped back into Italy.. it always was something we all looked forward too! :) Hang in there.. .We are all praying for you and your family.. :)

Send your daughter a B-day card, just make sure it doesn't have music, no glitter or tinsle that will fall out when they open it. I have made some homemade cards and sent them. They can have them but we just don't want to draw any extra attention to them with the music etc. Even if its late she would love to get a card. Mail one tomorrow so the Holiday mail service doesn't delay it anymore. Good luck our prayers are with you and your family
