“AM I A FIREMAN YET?”

My friend DR. Peter Forrest sent me this story that brought more than one tear to my eyes. One of my best friends and his wife, who I worked with for over 25 years, Elmer and Mary AAmodt, also caused more tears when this brought back sad memories. Elmer was Fire Marshall in Grand Prairie Texas for many years and about 8 years ago, he and Mary were driving to the State Fireman’s Convention in Beaumont when a car crossed the median on I-45, hit them head on, both going 70 and they both died. Elmer was an inspiration to my youngest grandson, Nick Stone who is now a fireman in Arlington Texas. This story is one every American should read. Get a tissue ready, you will love this.   C Brewer

 

In Phoenix, Arizona, a mother stared down at her six-year-old son, who was dying of terminal leukemia. Although her heart was filled with sadness, she also had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent, she wanted her son to grow up & fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible, the leukemia would see to that. But she still wanted her son’s dream to come true.

She took her son’s hand and asked, ‘Billy, did you ever think about what you wanted to be once you grew up? Did you ever dream and wish what you would do with your life?”

“Mommy, ‘I always wanted to be a fireman when I grew up.”

*Mom smiled back and said, ‘Let’s see if we can make your wish come true.’*

Later that day she went to her local fire Department in Phoenix Arizona, where she met Fireman Bob, who had a heart as big as Phoenix *

She explained her son’s final wish and asked if it might be possible to give her six-year-old son a ride around the block on a fire engine.

Fireman Bob said,” look, we can do better than that. If you’ll have your son ready at seven o’clock Wednesday morning, we’ll make him an honorary Fireman for the whole day. He can come down to the fire station, eat with us, go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards!”

“And if you’ll give us his sizes, we’ll get a real fire uniform for him, with a real fire hat – not a toy – one-with the emblem of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, and a yellow slicker like we wear and rubber boots. they’re all manufactured right here in Phoenix so we can get them fast.”

Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Billy, dressed him in his uniform and escorted him from his hospital bed to the waiting hook and ladder truck. Billy got to sit on the back of the truck and help steer it back to the fire station.

He was in heaven. There were three fire calls in Phoenix that day and Billy got to go out on all three calls.

He rode in the different fire engines, the Paramedic’s’ van, and even the fire chief’s car. He was also videotaped for the local news program.

Having his dream come true, with all the love and attention that was lavished upon him, so deeply touched Billy, that he lived three months longer than any doctor thought possible.

One night all his vital signs began to drop dramatically and the head nurse, who believed in the hospice concept that no one should die alone, began to call the family members to the hospital.

Then she remembered the day Billy had spent as a Fireman, so she called the Fire Chief and asked if it would be possible to send a fireman in uniform to the hospital to be with Billy as he made his transition.

The chief replied, ‘We can do better than that. We’ll be there in five minutes…. Will you please do me a favor?

When you hear, the sirens screaming and see the Lights flashing, will you announce over the PA system that there is not a fire? It’s the department coming to see one of its finest members one more time. And will you open the window to his room?”

About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck arrived at the hospital and extended its ladder up to Billy’sthird floor open window, 16 fire-fighters climbed up the ladder into Billy’s room with his mother’s permission, they hugged him and held him and told him how much they LOVED him. With his dying breath, Billy looked up at the fire chief and said, “Chief, am I really a fireman now?”

“Billy, you are, said the Chief, Jesus, is holding your hand, the chief said with those words”, Billy smiled and said, “I know, he’s been holding my hand all day, and the angels have been singing.” He closed his eyes for the last time.

There is no cost, but a lot of rewards, let’s continue to uplift one another!

This is a true story.

ELECTORAL COLLEGE EXPLAINED!

It seems few know what it protects.

My great friend, Dr.Peter F0rrest shared this rather simple explanation of why the Founding Fathers did not want the larger states to combine power and be able to harm the smaller states. We have equal representation with each state having 2 Senators instead of the Senate being biased if population were used like the House. Reading blogs, Facebook exposed that few people, Republicans and Demoncrats had any understanding of this statute. A reflection of how our schools including Universities have failed just like they are doing by eliminating Cursive writing in our education systems. C Brewer  

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC.  62% to her 19%.  Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.  Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821.  61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates.  Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges.  But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57.113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%. So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.

This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one populous state from overriding the vote of the others.  Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of 6 pathways to the White House”.  This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.  It worked and our country is safe.

 

 

HILLARY OR TRUMP?

 

My great friend Dr. Peter Forrest sent this E mail and I nearly fainted. I do not wish to paraphrase, correct or edit one word from this great article. I have no idea who the name of the correspondent who wrote this but if anyone can send me their name I will certainly give them credit. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I have. Trump is the last hope to save our Constitution and Republic form of Government. I hope my previous article will blow away the massive smoke screens.This article deeply impressed this old Conservative.

This is absolutely brilliant.  A surprising article from the New Yorker Magazine.  This magazine has always been a left-wing apologizer so this article is even more amazing.  Don’t pass it up.  

The author is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and wrote extensively about Obama even before he was nominated.

“Who is Donald Trump?”  The better question may be, “What is Donald Trump?”   

The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment.

Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their parents.  But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the “Republicans In Name Only.”  They know there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates.

Ben Carson is not an “establishment” candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson ; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) be tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio).  The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse.  Besides – lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things.  Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an[islamo-]Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)

Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious.  They gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016?  Why?

Trump did not come from out of nowhere.  His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures.

No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems or reps] will slash federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.).  Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education.  (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.)  No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation’s major problems will be solved by Rodham, Bush, and the other dishers of donkey fazoo now eagerly eating corn in Iowa and pancakes in New Hampshire .

Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:

Anyone named Bush

Anyone named Clinton

Anyone who’s held political office

Political correctness

Illegal immigration

Massive unemployment

Phony “official” unemployment and inflation figures

Welfare waste and fraud

0f  People faking disabilities to go on the dole

VA waiting lists

TSA airport groping

ObamaCare

The Federal Reserve’s money-printing schemes

Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine

Michelle Obama’s vacations

Michelle Obama’s food police

Barack Obama’s golf

Barack Obama’s arrogant and condescending lectures

Barack Obama’s criticism/hatred of America

Valerie Jarrett

Holiday trees”

Hollywood hypocrites

Global warming nonsense

Cop killers

Gun confiscation threats

Stagnant wages

Boys in girls’ bathrooms

Whiny, spoiled college students who can’t even place the Civil War in the correct century… and that’s just the short list.

Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these issues, and that few Republicans have the courage to address these issues.  They certainly know that none of the establishment candidates are better than barely listening to them, and Trump is their way of saying, “Screw you, Hillary Rodham Rove Bush!”  The more the talking head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the more supporters he gains.  (The only pundits who seem to understand what is going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and Republican John LeBoutillier.  All the others argue that the voters will eventually “come to their senses” and support an establishment candidate.)

But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage.  It needs a new engine installed by experts – and neither Rodham nor Bush are mechanics with the skills or experience to install it.  Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic; she merely manages a garage her philandering husband abandoned.  Jeb Bush is not a mechanic; he merely inherited a garage.  Granted, Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage.  He won’t hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and breathes cars.

“How dare they revolt!” the “elites” are bellowing.  Well, the citizens are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it.  “But Trump will hand the election to Clinton !”  That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved “Maverick” McCain down GOP throats in 2008 – knowing he would lose to Obama.  But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would not be dramatically different than Bush or most of his fellow candidates.  They would be nothing more than caretakers, not working to restore America ‘s greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively in-debt nation.  A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps survive a generous welfare system.  But no nation can survive both – and there is little evidence that the establishment candidates of either party understand that.  The United States cannot forever continue on the path it is on.  At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.

Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but the truth is that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house, and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at war with radical Islamists; all the world’s glaciers are not melting; and Rosie O’Donnell is a fat pig.

Is Trump the perfect candidate?  Of course not.  Neither was Ronald Reagan.  But unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are irrelevant. One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands.  One jihadist poisoning a city’s water supply could kill tens of thousands.  One electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions.  Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don’t care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  While Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look, most Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed [islamic] lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who thinks 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.

The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation.  They are afraid he will upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts.  While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much.

You can be certain that if an establishment candidate wins in November 2016 their cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we’ve seen before.  The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Bush administrations will be back in charge.  The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots.  Whether it is Bush’s Karl Rove or Clinton ‘s John Podesta, who makes the decisions in the White House will matter little.  

If the establishment wins, America loses.

Please share this with anyone who will vote in November,  C Brewer

 

CONUNDRUMS!

I have been under the weather for over five weeks and they can’t isolate ant reason why. One trip to the ER, three different Doctors and every test imaginable have been punishing but it appears that approaching 86 is the cause. I still read every day but concentrating required to write has been difficult.

Thankfully I have many friends who share articles and until I can improve I will share some of the most interesting with you. The article “Conundrums” was sent by my old friend Dr. Peter Forrest. I hope you enjoy the unique analogies as much as I did? I have no idea who wrote this and if you know I would be delighted to give credit if known. C Brewer

Conundrums

“A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.” 

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing. 

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America

1. America is capitalists and greedy – yethalf of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims. 

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government. 

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer. 

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about. 

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries. 

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. Makes you wonder who is doing the math. 

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment: 

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.     

Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering… 

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.  But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money !What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t. 

Think about it…..and Last but not least : 

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens. 

Am I the only one missing something?

“If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.” – Plato
