Never Forget 9-11

Thank God For The Unsung American Heroes: Hundreds of small boats pulled by pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They're using their own property, sacrificing their  time, spending their  money, and risking their  lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need. “Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there's a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump. These are the people THE LEFT LOVES TO HATE, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *KNOW* they're so much better than.

     These are The Quiet Ones. They don't wear masks and tear down statues. They don't, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods. But they'll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They'll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.

      When disaster strikes, it's what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they'll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they've never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.  And the next time they hear someone talk about "the patriarchy", or "male privilege", they'll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed. In the meantime, they'll likely be UP AGAIN BEFORE DAWN. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work's done. They're unlikely to be reimbursed. There won't be medals. They won't care. They're heroes. And it's what they do. - Author unknown

Congressman Martha McSally will participate in the 6:30 am, 9/11 Tower Challenge at the University of Arizona stadium in Tucson in memory of the 414 first responders who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. There were 110 floors and 2,071 steps in the Twin Towers. McSally will join hundreds firefighters, law enforcement, military members and their families in stadiums across Arizona who will also take the journey of 2,071 steps in memory of those who bravely gave their life in the service of others. The “9/11 Memorial Tower Challenge" memorializes those who died, as well as raises funds for charities that support first responder and military families.

Senate-Blocks-Rand-Pauls-Bill-To-Give-Money-To-Hurricane-Victims-Instead-Of-Foreign-Dictators As estimates to fix the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey reach over $100 billion, the U.S. Congress has pushed for a bill that would raise the national debt in order to pay for it. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul suggested a different solution—why not make cuts to foreign aid in order to help Americans in need? “In Washington, we have a disease—or a syndrome, rather. I call it the ‘dinosaur syndrome,’ big hearts, small brains. Unfortunately, it’s a reoccurring problem. Year after year, bill after bill, day after day,” Paul said during a speech on the Senate floor. “In Washington, it is argued that you are more compassionate if you give away more of someone else’s money. I would argue that true compassion is in giving your own money away. I would argue that truly rational policy is giving away money that you have. So it’s one thing to give away other people’s money, it’s another thing to give away money that you don’t even possess.”

Senator John McCain On 16th Anniversary Of The September 11th Terrorist Attacks: “It was a terrible tragedy and we will never forget. And we will always mourn their loss. But it was also a coming together – it was a coming together to make sure that that kind of tragedy could never happen again. And I’m proud of the men and women who are serving, who have been out there for now all these years, far away from home – many of them as much as four or five times, or more. They are the best of America and we thank them.”

PC Art Olivas: They Came To Roost, We Must Purge Them -- Not all but most of the people that I have suspected of being part of John McCain's- Jonathan Lines sewer brigade - with their own admission have admitted the contempt they have for our country our citizens our constitution and rule of law. You were to think that if they had an ounce of intelligence they would know that they will destroy the future of their own children and grandchildren as well. How can I or you be politically correct with RINOs who are making and keeping Arizona and our country a cesspool of corruption. politicians that are with George Soros, Jon Kyl, John McCain, Jeff Flake and their army of self-proclaimed Republicans in name only! I ask myself why do we keep this people in office? One that comes to mind is Chairman George Ortiz and his Chips and Salsa show! What can we think? I think that if we don't wake up now and get purge this RINOs pretty quick they will hand us over to Mexico on a sliver platter and you will speak Spanish!  They are now saying that the dreamers deserve protection. O' hell no. I believe just like Gabby S. Mercer; send them back to their own country! Make them prove their worth by fixing their own country. If they don't have any rights over there, they sure as hell should not have any rights here! See print and save it so you can see it every day hope it turns your stomach and remember them!

LD20 State Committeeman Wes Harris: This will be short and sweet.   I have read HB 2022!  While I agree with Francine Romesburg that we should observe the proceedings at the State Legislature as they work out the rules covering the C Article V Convention, I most vehemently disagree with her assessments and the invocation of fear of "a run-away convention".  9-10-17-briefs.html  Unfortunately the HB 2022 did not adopt the "Compact of States" as part of the Article V proceedings.  The beauty of the Compact was that it precludes the discussion of anything not contained in the Compact and would allow the Legislature to decide, among other things, the penalty for those delegates that would try to bolt from the confirmed agenda.  HB 2022 does specify that the Convention is for passing a Balanced Budget Amendment , but, on the other hand, should we have a convention that indeed puts forth suggested amendments other than a Balanced Budget Amendment, I would hardly call this a "run away Convention" because any and all proposals must be approved by the States (ratified) afterwards and if off the wall these proposed amendments will be rejected by this process.  Article V and the right to petition our government for redress as contained in the First Amendment are the only ways that WE THE PEOPLE can curtail our 'run-a-way' Federal Government.  We are fools if we think that Congress will change anything along these lines and continuing to trust them to do so, as we have for over 200 years, is folly.
