Flag Day – June 14th


June 14, Flag Day, was Grandpa’s birthday. My Grandfather was my best friend on earth. He was the very first person to hold and greet me into the world after I was born. He and Grandma would steal me away almost every summer and take me traveling with them. One time, I was around 7, we were staying at a hotel by a river that I loved so much that they decided to stay a couple more days. Even then I felt that they probably planned their vacations just for me.

When they didn’t travel anymore, I stayed at their house in the mountains. With Pink Floyd playing in the background I was able to “find” myself in the completely boring fresh mountain air. Grandpa and Grandma showed me love no matter what. It was a good break from what was at home. «Read the rest of this article»

Voter registration drive District 5


Dear friends,

Since my last email, I have attended the “Meet the Candidates” event at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library and the Clarksville NAACP Community Voter Mass Registration Drive & Rally. Both events gave me the opportunity to introduce myself. I really appreciate all those who came out to support me.

Saturday, June 17, 2006, 11am – 3pm

Plans are underway for our own voter registration drive this Saturday. We are targeting an area in District 5 that has low voter registration. I will setup my canopy in the parking area of the Quick Stop Market, 902 Greenwood Avenue. It is on the corner of Greenwood Avenue and Woodmont Boulevard. We will be giving away hotdogs and plan to canvass the area around the market. The purpose of this Saturday’s Voter Registration Drive is to activate the community of people who are not registered and to better inform them of the election process. «Read the rest of this article»

We’ve Got Your Number Soldier


The Department of DefenseToday I received one of those letters the government is sending out telling vets that their personal information may be at risk. I was somewhat surprised as the U.S. military and I permanently parted company back in 1972. Evidently one federal employee is capable of carrying around information dating back as much as 35 years ago on (according to the letter) “up to 26.5 million veterans and some spouses”. This includes DOB (date of birth) and SSN (Social Security Number) — which can enable an identity thief to hijack your identity and wreak havoc with your financial life. «Read the rest of this article»

The risks of amending the constitution to define marriage


ConstitutionThe constitution states that the Congress writes the laws; the Executive branch approves them, and then enforces them; the Judicial branch interprets the meaning of what they say. Another duty of the judicial branch of our government is to ensure that the laws which are written and passed by Congress then approved by the President are constitutional. «Read the rest of this article»

This is my ribbon rant


This is my ribbon rant.

You know, those yellow “support our troops” ribbons plastered on the ass-end of just about every SUV you drive behind.

Don’t get me wrong, I agree with the sentiment of the ribbons: “Support our troops”. What makes me mad about the ribbons is that most people who decorate their SUVs with those ribbons have given little, if any thought to what “supporting the troops” means. «Read the rest of this article»
