SOME CARE FOR OUR VETERANS!

My great friend, Dr. Peter Forrest, shared this wonderful story that I hope everyone that reads this will share it with everyone they know. Every golfer on Earth needs to read this and even if you are not a golfer it should put a tear in your eyes. Even Snopes (who are politically biased) stated this story is true! Please help circulate this wonderful story.

I played the Disney, Lake Buena Vista course. As usual the starters matched me with three other players. After a few holes we began to get to know each other a bit. One fellow was rather young and had his wife riding along in the golf cart with him.

I noticed that his golf bag had his name on it and after closer inspection, it also said “wounded war veterans “.

When I had my first chance to chat with him I asked him about the bag.

His response was simply that it was a gift. I then asked if he was wounded and he said yes. When I asked more about his injury, his response was “I’d rather not talk about it, sir”.

Over a few holes I learned that he had spent the last 15 months in an army rehabilitation hospital in San Antonio, Texas. His wife moved there to be with him and he was released from the hospital in September. He was a rather quiet fellow; however, he did say that he wanted to get good at golf.

We had a nice round and as we became a bit more familiar I asked him about the brand new set of Ping woods and irons he was playing. Some looked like they had never been hit.

His response was simple. He said that this round was the first full round he had played with these clubs. Later in the round, he told me the following.

As part of the discharge process from the rehabilitation hospital, Ping comes in and provides three days of golf instruction, followed by club fitting. Upon discharge from the hospital, Ping gives each of the discharged veterans, generally about 40 soldiers, a brand new set of custom fitted clubs along with the impressive golf bags.

The fellow I met was named Ben Woods and he looked me in the eye and said that being fitted for those clubs was one of the best things that ever happened to him and he was determined to learn to play golf well enough to deserve the gift Ping had given him.

Ben is now out of the service medically discharged just a month ago. He is as fine a young man as you would ever want to meet.

Ping, whose products are made with pride here in America (Arizona), has the good judgement not to advertise this program.

God Bless America and the game of golf.

Thank you PING.

May God Bless our Military!

This one deserves to be shared with everybody!  Author Unknown

This put a tear in this 86-year-old Navy veteran who took up golf seriously when I retired 23 years ago. I enlisted at 17 and after 5 years I was honorably discharged over 64 years ago. I will remember this story every time I use my Ping putter. If I ever buy new golf products, it will be from Ping if they make them.     Clyde Brewer

OBAMA – FACT OR FICTION?

An example of government decision making.

Once upon a time there was a President who wanted to go play golf.

He called in his Weather Czar, VP Joe Biden, and asked when would be the next day he could be sure there would be no rain.

Biden assured him that there was absolutely no chance of rain for tomorrow. So the President and Reverend Al Sharpton departed early the next morning for a round of golf.

After they teed off they were riding and when they stopped before the next shot a farmer who was plowing with his mule, John K, in the adjacent field hollered and said, Mr. President you need to return immediately to the White house as we will shortly be having a torrential rain storm.

Obama responded in his usual caustic way, My VP and Weather Czar Joe Biden is the best forecaster in the world. He is extremely experienced, well-educated and paid a very high salary to give me advice. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him so we will finish our round of golf

Before they finished the second hole the bottom fell out as torrential rain fell from the sky and Obama and Sharpton were totally soaked.

Their entire entourage, including the Secret Service, chuckled upon seeing them in such a drenched condition. Furious, Obama returned to the White House and fired Biden as his Weather Czar and told him to go hide out of his sight!

Then Obama summoned the farmer & offered him the prestigious & high paying role of his new Weather Czar.

The farmer said, “Mr. President, I do not know anything about weather forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey, John K. If I see his ears drooping, it means, with 100% certainty that it will rain.”

So Obama hired John K, the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring asses to work in the Obama government & occupy its highest & most influential advisory positions. Now John K is Secretary of State and negotiating a treaty with Iran.

GO FOR A RUN IN THE RAIN!

This has been a hectic week for the Brewers. After a week of company we had to make a three hour drive last Sunday to watch an old and dear friend, Mr. Prentice Holder celebrate his 100th birthday Monday in Baytown Texas. We enjoyed visiting our daughter, Lisa and granddaughter, Emma before another three hour drive home Tuesday.

Rain has been our constant companion this month and Wednesday morning I went fishing with John Sommers and it started a light rain and he asked me if I was ready to go in and I said no. Less than five minutes later the rain was so heavy you could not see 50 feet and we raced through the rain to my boat house and got soaked. During the trip back the rain was painful hitting our faces and when we got inside the boat house we both had a long laugh.

Fishing was terrible as the lake is above full and the water is muddy. So far this month we have had over 17.5 inches of rain, golf was near impossible, as I said fishing was no good and we had over 7 inches of rain just this week. When I got up this morning I was tired and a little despondent with the exception of a wonderful birthday party and a chance to see our siblings, this week was a bummer.

So I decided to take some time to read some 200 E messages that I received in the last two days and thankfully found the following message from my friends, Mike & Emma Cobb. Reading the story below made me realize how lucky I am to still just be alive.

It made me remember the events in my life with children and how fragile and inquisitive they can be. In addition to having 44 children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, I have a 10 year old pen-pal in Pennsylvania, Miss Emily Perser.   

I have no idea who wrote this message or if it is actually true. It did impact me to share this with as many people as possible and it put a smile back on my old wrinkled face. I hope you will smile, remember your events with children and have a wonderful day. The sun just came out here for the first time in five days, what a happy event. C Brewer  

A MOM RESPONDS TO HER DAUGHTER.

A little girl had been shopping with her Mom in Wal-Mart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of innocence.

It was pouring outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the earth it has no time to flow down the spout. We all stood there, under the awning, just inside the door of Wal-Mart.

We waited, some patiently, others irritated because nature messed up their hurried day.

I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memories of running, splashing so carefree as a child came pouring in as a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.

Her little voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in, ‘Mom let’s run through the rain,’ She said.

‘What?’ Mom asked.

‘Let’s run through the rain!’ She repeated.

‘No, honey. We’ll wait until it slows down a bit,’ Mom replied.

This young child waited a minute and repeated: ‘Mom, let’s run through the rain….’

‘We’ll get soaked if we do,’ Mom said.

‘No, we won’t, Mom. That’s not what you said this morning,’ the young girl said as she tugged at her Mom’s arm.

‘This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?

”Don’t you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, ‘ If God can get us through this, He can get us through anything!

The entire crowd stopped dead silent… I swear you couldn’t hear anything but the rain… We all stood silently. No one left. Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say.

Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child’s life. A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.

‘Honey, you are absolutely right. Let’s run through the rain. If GOD lets us get wet, well maybe we just need washing,’ Mom said.

Then off they ran.

We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They got soaked.

They were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars. And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.

Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your precious memories…So, don’t forget to make time and take the opportunities to make memories every day.

To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.

I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

Send this to the people you’ll never forget and remember to also send it to the person who sent it to you. It’s a short message to let them know that you’ll never forget them.

If you don’t send it to anyone, it means you’re in a hurry.

Take the time to live!!!

Keep in touch with your friends, you never know when you’ll need each other and don’t forget to run in the rain!

Thanks Mike & Emma, you made my day!  CB

WHO RUINED THE AMERICAN DREAM?

The average American over fifty dreams of those golden years of their life that they worked so hard to enjoy. Unfortunately far too many do not take the responsibility to adequately prepare themselves. What scares me is that more than half of all Americans today depend on someone else to work and pay for them to just survive. Can you imagine the chaos when these people reach retirement and the welfare “well” goes dry? Thanks to Obama, Eric Holder and the Democrats, the Dead, those on welfare and illegals can still vote in most states but they don’t pay taxes.

Why does Congress, our President and the media ignore the basic facts that our country used to be the most creative, successful and free society to “EVER” last over 225 years. We did this because people from all over the world saw an opportunity to be free from ruling power oppression. They came here, or were raised like myself, to work hard, create their own opportunity and enjoy their dreams.

We had leaders who understood that people must have jobs to even be able to ever retire. What happened to change our government’s objective to provide opportunity to continue to enjoy our freedoms to that of just buying those votes and let someone else worry about the chaos later? Will my generation be the last to even dream about having any golden years?

The Golden years should be a time in your life when you should not have to worry about anything. Eliminate the alarm clock, walk in the park, go fishing, play golf, pray if you want to and smile when you wake up each day. Ignore all of life’s distress and the people who create it. Smile all day, surround yourself with friends and family who make you laugh. Love those who treat you well, pray for the ones who are unable to be happy for whatever reason. Life is too short to be sad or worry about anything. If our government would refocus its desire and create jobs everyone could again focus on the American dream.

Think about some important facts. There must be peace within all Americans. Every American and most legal immigrants used to understand that you are exactly where you are meant to be. All people are born to achieve every possibility that your health and mind can perceive. We are all filled with infinite possibilities that are born in yourself and others. Use these gifts to meet every objective you set for yourself. Pass on the love that was given to you. Accept the facts of any physical or mental defects you inherited and just try harder. Be yourself just the way you are.

What can you do to support the critical need to refocus our Congressional priorities, vote for those who pledge to stop the destruction of our Republic form of Government? Vote for those who promise to create jobs instead of entrenched Democrats who just promise more welfare to keep the poor people poor. Poor people and illegal aliens can’t create jobs.

Ladies, you are primarily responsible for the leaderless government we suffer with today, so I have two questions.

1. Is having free contraceptives for men and women, old and young, your prime reason to vote for Democrats?

2. Is having free contraceptives for your teen age daughters your prime reason to vote for Democrats?

Ladies, birth control is a parent’s responsibility, not the governments. Roe vs Wade is the law of the land and no one is powerful enough to reverse it now or ever. We need jobs instead of more illegals who do the work we pay lazy ass Americans on welfare to avoid that work. This is just “common sense” not rocket science.

Vote on November 4th to restore the American Dreams.

ObamaGolf!

(Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to ObamaGolf. My name is Trina. How can I help you?

(Customer) Hello, I received an email from Golfsmith stating that my Pro V1 order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your web site, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.

(Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the web site. It should be fixed by the end of 2014. But I can help you.

(Customer) Thanks, I ordered some Pro V1 balls.

(Receptionist) Sir, Pro V1’s do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with a choice of Pinnacle, Top Flite, or Callaway Blue.

(Customer) But I have played Pro V1 for years.

(Receptionist) The government has determined that Pro V1s are no longer acceptable, so we have instructed Titleist to stop making them. Top Flites are better, sir, I am sure you will love them.

(Customer) But I like the Pro V1. Why are Top Flites better?

(Receptionist) That is all spelled out in the 2700 page “Affordable Golf Ball Act” passed by Congress.

(Customer) Well, how much are these Top Flites?

(Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package?

(Customer) What’s the difference?

(Receptionist) 12, 24, 36 or 48 balls.

(Customer) The Silver package may be okay; how much is it?

(Receptionist) It depends, sir; what is your monthly income?

(Customer) What does that have to do with anything?

(Receptionist) I need that to determine if you qualify for the government Golf Ball subsidy; then I can determine how much your out-of-pocket cost will be.  If your income is below the poverty level, you will qualify for a subsidy. In that case, I can refer you to our Ball-Aid department.

(Customer) Ball-Aid?

(Receptionist) Yes, golf balls are a right. Everyone has a right to golf balls. So, if you can’t afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.

(Customer) Who said they were a right?

(Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.

(Customer) Whoa…..I don’t remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding golf balls as a right.

(Receptionist) There’s no explicit mention of golf balls in the

Constitution, but President Obama is a former constitutional scholar and he believes it would have been included if the Constitution had not been drafted by a bunch of slave-owning white men. The Democrats in the Congress and the Supreme Court agree with the President that golf balls are now a right guaranteed by the Constitution.

(Customer) I don’t believe this…

(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land, sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is your monthly income, sir?

(Customer) Forget it, I think I will forgo buying balls this year.

(Receptionist) In that case, sir, I will still need your monthly income.

(Customer) Why?

(Receptionist) To determine what your ‘non-participation’ cost would be.

(Customer) WHAT? You can’t charge me for NOT buying golf balls.

(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It’s $49.50 or 1% of your monthly income…..

(Customer)(interrupting) This is ridiculous, I’ll pay the $49.50.

(Receptionist) Sir, it is the $49.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

(Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a rip-off!!

(Receptionist) Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.

(Customer) Look, I’m going to call my Congressman to find out what’s going on here. This is ridiculous. I’m not going to pay it.

(Receptionist) Sorry to hear that sir, that’s why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone you are using.

(Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of cell phone I am using?

(Receptionist) So they get your GPS coordinates, sir

(Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door)

(Receptionist) That would be the IRS, sir. Thanks for calling ObamaGolf, have a nice day…and God Bless the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Affordable Golf Club Act

Being an avid golfer I could not resist posting this message I received from my friend Dr. Peter Forrest. Golfer or not you should enjoy this message. Without a doubt this is analogy is totally stupid but so is the entire Obamacare program. I agree that Bush‘s Medicare Drug program was just as stupid but that’s no excuse to destroy the entire healthcare of all Americans. Without enough doctors it will shorten life expectancy which is the real objective of the Progressive-Liberals plan. Obama has accelerated the plan at warp-speed with the help of the media. Hope you get a chuckle from this? C Brewer

NEWS RELEASE

The Obama administration just enacted a new law titled, “The Affordable Golf Club Act” that declared that most Americans “MUST” purchase a new set of golf clubs, by April 2014.

These “affordable” sets of golf clubs will cost an average of $1,000-$3,000 each.

This does not include taxes, pull cart, electric cart fees, green fees, membership fees, balls, tees, gloves, range finders, and storage fees, maintenance, or repair costs.

This law has been passed, because until now, typically only wealthy and financially responsible people have been able to purchase new golf clubs. This new laws ensures that every American can now have “affordable” golf clubs of their own, because everyone is “entitled” to new golf clubs. If you purchase your golf clubs before the end of the year, you will receive 4 “free” golf lessons; not including driving range usage fees.

In order to make sure everyone purchases affordable golf clubs, the costs of owning a golf clubs will increase on average of 250-400% per year. This way, wealthy people will pay more for something that other people don’t want or can’t afford to maintain. But to be fair, people who can’t afford to maintain their golf clubs will be regularly fined and children (under the age of 26) can use their parents’ golf clubs to play until they turn 27; then must purchase their own golf clubs.

If you already have a golf clubs, you can keep yours (just kidding; no you can’t).

If you don’t want or don’t need golf clubs, you are required to buy them anyhow. If you refuse to buy a set or can’t afford them, you will be regularly fined $800 until you purchase a set or face imprisonment.

Failure to use the golf clubs will also result in fines.

People living in the desert; ghettos; inner cities or areas with no access to golf courses are not exempt.  Age, skin cancer, bad back, no experience, being spastic nor lack of desire is acceptable excuses for not using your golf clubs.

A government review board (that doesn’t know the difference between a hook or a slice) will decide everything, including; when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your golf clubs along with how many people can ride in your golf cart and determine if one is too old or not healthy enough to be able to use their golf clubs.

They will also decide if your golf clubs have out lived their usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories, (like a $500 range finder with slope adjustment) or a newer and more expensive set of golf clubs.

Those that can afford memberships at expensive golf country clubs will be required to do so…it’s only fair.

The government will also decide the name for specific golf clubs:  pitching iron – the Biden; wedge
– the Reid; putter – the Pelosi. Failure to comply with these rules will result in fines and possible imprisonment.

Government officials are exempt from this new law. If they want a new set of golf clubs, they and their families can obtain golf clubs free, at the expense of tax payers.

Unions, bankers and mega companies with large political affiliations ($$$) are also exempt.

If the government can force you to buy health care, they can force you to buy golf clubs….or ANYTHING else.
