Why I will always support Senator Jim Bunning (R-Ky)



...Okay, well that's just one example of why I support Jim Bunning.

Need another example? Bunning was awarded the "Taxpayers' Friend Award" from the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) for his votes on fiscal policy in 2008. He was the ONLY member of the Congressional delegation from Kentucky to receive this award.

What?... you mean our Senior Senator from Kentucky didn't get that award too? Isn't he a Conservative like Jim Bunning? No, actually, he's not. Only Senator Bunning has stood firm on Conservative ground the whole eight years of the Bush Administration and the first 100+ days of the beginning of Supreme Leader's reign.

I'm proud of the way Jim Bunning represents Kentucky Conservatives on the Hill. Despite the bad attitude of his own party at the state level, I hope Senator Bunning is successful in his run to retain his place in Washington, DC.

It seems to me that we Conservatives have been represented for far too long by too many "Republicrats" -- maybe it's time you and I find ourselves a truly Conservative party and switch teams, Senator Bunning!

A Message from Debbie Lee, Gold Star Mom

Remember my son, Marc Alan Lee on Memorial Day

Support Our Heroes
with Care Packages

for this Special Holiday
Memorial Day is just a day away and time is running out to send your support to the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. I remember as a child I could always look forward to a long weekend filled with lots of fun, maybe a trip to the lake, camping, or our famous Memorial Day picnic. I remember visiting the graves of my Great Grandmother or Grand Father a few times, but I never knew that Memorial Day was to remember those who died who had served our country in the military. Many people aren't any different than I was. They don't understand the reason for this holiday.

Memorial Day will never again be just a three-day weekend to me. I urge you to pray for the families of those who gave their lives for this country, and to support those who protect us against our enemies today.
Sponsor a Care Package today and write
a personal note of thanks to our troops:

 
 
The past several years I have walked through National Cemeteries from Arlington, VA., to Fort Rosecrans in San Diego. I thought about each hero and wondered about their stories. It is staggering to see the rows and rows of marble headstones with the names of so many warriors who faithfully served their country and defended our freedoms. Many have the designation KIA after the date of their death, noting that they were "Killed in Action."

I have memorized what is etched on the headstone at Fort Rosecrans space #1255. That is where my youngest son rests.

I personally know so many who gave their life and blood for this nation. I also know those who served, returned home, silently carried the scars left from combat, and died in old age. This Memorial Day, I will honor and remember those who served and are no longer with us. I will place flowers on Marc's grave, thanking him and all of those who rest alongside him for their selfless sacrifice. I know there will be tears as I long to see his smile or feel his e
mbrace. One day I will see Marc in Heaven.
 

My Son and I, after his graduation from BUDS training

I still am amazed that so many go to battle knowing they may give their life so that others may live. My mind wanders to Iraq and Afghanistan where right now we have brave warriors fighting for our freedom. They are thousands of miles away from home
, wondering if we remember them and their sacrifice away from their families. I can't think of a better way to remind them that they are not forgotten than to send them a care package to lift their spirits and let them know we love and appreciate them.



 I know this means so much to them.  I just received a letter from one of our warriors in Afghanistan who received a care package from me. "I promise to you, your family, and to Marc I will do my best."

This wasn't from someone I had ever met or who knew Marc. He was just touched by knowing that someone else cares and remembers our troops.

Please join me this year in remembering our fallen heroes and help me to continue to support and honor those who are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan by sponsoring a care package.

Michelle Obama recently served food to the homeless at a government-funded soup kitchen.


Cost of a bowl of soup at homeless shelter: $0.00

Having Michelle Obama serve your soup: $0.00

Our very own Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old Texas rancher, whose hand got caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his successful election to the presidency.

The old rancher said, 'Well, you know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle.'"

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor felt compelled to ask what he meant by "post turtle."

"Well," the old rancher said, "When you're riding down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'."



The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain.

"You know he didn't get up there by himself; He doesn't belong up there; he doesn't know what to do while he's up there; and, you just have to wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place!"
