    Many times, normal people get frustrated and wonder what they could possibly do to fight an out of control government. This could happen at the local, state or national level.

    Fortunately, at the local level, this is often entirely possible. Two military veterans in Illinois recently placed an entire county board under citizen’s arrest after they violated a state law. The board basically laughed it off and told the pair to sit down and shut up.

    They weren’t very amused when the local sheriff showed up though. According to The Ocala Post:

    In what was one of their most epic displays of political crime-fighting, which was captured on video, Allen and Kraft held the entire Clark County Park District Board under citizen’s arrest on May 13, 2014, for violating the Illinois Open Meetings Act, a Class C misdemeanor.

  • Silly Sunday

    silly-sunday-badge-250-transparent-150x150

    I was reading an article last night about fathers and sons, and memories came flooding back of the time I took my son out for his first drink. Off we went to our local bar, which is only two blocks from the house.

    I got him a Guiness Stout. He didn’t like it – so I drank it.

    Then I got him an Old Style, he didn’t like it either, so I drank it.

    It was the same with the Coors and the Bud.

    By the time we got down to the Irish whiskey . . .

    I could hardly push the stroller back home.

    Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

    This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

    Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

    He’ll be fined $50 a day if he refused to do so. If he doesn’t pay he will be towed. Frank Larison and his attorney Mike joined CNN to discuss the situation.
    Frank said he was shocked; He loves America and loves the American troops.

  • Silly Sunday

    silly-sunday-badge-250-transparent-150x150

    I had everything planned and had told my wife I would not be going to church with her on Sunday.

    My wife reminded me that Sunday was the Sabbath Day and hunting a trophy buck should not be part of the Sabbath.

    1. I scouted the area all summer.

    2. I searched out the best location for my tree-stand.

    3. I set it all up a month ahead of time.

    4. I trailed the herd.

    5. I picked out a trophy buck.

    6. Two days before opening day I rechecked every aspect of the hunt.

    7. Everything was in place.

    8. Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 am.

    9. I put on my camo, loaded my pack, set out for my stand.

    10. This was destined to be an epic hunt.

    11. As I approached my deer stand.

    bear stand

    I called my wife and told her I had decided not to hunt on the Sabbath and would meet her at church.

    The Sunday sermon was entitled “The Lord Works In Mysterious Ways”.

    This is Sybila the Wican cat. She visited me with Puss for a while. I gave her the nick name “fraidy cat” because she would run and hide at the drop of a hat, sock or cat treat. LOL

    Because of a change in the InLinz policy I’m changing to Mr Linkey. It will take me a few weeks to get it right. Please bear with. Hope you know the “drill” by now. Leave a link to your cat pictures. :)




  • Wednesday’s Hero – 12 November 2014 – SSgt. Michael Pate

    SSgt. Michael Pate
    SSgt. Michael Pate
    31 years old from Austin, Texas
    Civil Affairs Team 611
    U.S. Army

    From SSgt. Pate’s Silver Star citation:

    The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Staff Sergeant Michael P. Pate, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in connection with military operations against the enemy. Staff Sergeant Pate heroically distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous conduct in the face of the enemy of the United States as Medical Sergeant, Civil Affairs Team 611, Special Operations Task Force-Southeast, Village Stability Platform Shobar, Afghanistan, in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. On the afternoon of November 1, 2012, while conducting a routine civil reconnaissance patrol, Sergeant Pates’ patrol came under small-arms and automatic weapons fire in an ambush east of the village of Sardar Kala, Afghanistan. The entire patrol was heading east, stretched out over a 400 meter distance and was caught in a freshly plowed farmer’s field that gently sloped upward. The only cover or concealment came in the form of ankle high irrigation berms. Sergeant Pate’s element 4 was the western most squad and was 175 meters from 2 fortified heavy machine gun positions and at least 6 additional enemy shooters who used a dense orchard village which provided multiple egress routes, and also contained a large number of civilians in the area. The trail man in element 4 also carried the heavy weapon system and was critically wounded when a bullet from the initial burst struck him in the back. The enemy machine-gunners concentrated fire on the element 4 members. Sergeant Pate realized the necessity to immediately neutralize the enemy threat and render aid to his wounded teammate, so he risked his own life to run over 50 meters back toward the enemy fighting positions. While the other members of element four were pinned down and returning fire, Sergeant Pate and his team leader, Captain Jacob Allen, chose to run through heavy and effective fire to their teammates position, and dragged the wounded teammate over 25 meters to the only cover available in the form of a 6 inch retaining berm, while continuing to return fire on the enemy position. Sergeant Pate performed flawlessly under heavy enemy fire, performing surgical interventions without cover or concealment while simultaneously returning effective fire for more than 10 minutes. He remained exposed while hundreds of enemy bullets impacted all around them in order to coordinate with his Joint Terminal Attack Controller for close air support and MEDEVAC, and to update the ground force commander with enemy position information so the other elements could maneuver to, close with, and terminate two enemy fighters. His actions are in keeping with the finest traditions of military heroism and reflect distinct credit upon himself,Army.

    These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero. Those Who Say That We’re In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don’t Know Where To Look
