I would be remiss if I did not begin this with a very heartfelt tribute to our soldiers and their families on this Memorial weekend. If it were not for the sense of love, duty and honor that these brave warriors gave for our nation, we would not be a nation. When I think back in just my lifetime, I have lived through a hundred thousand of these great men and women giving the ultimate sacrifice for America. Since the 1770′s, America has lost untold amount’s of her treasure to the cause of Liberty. Why?
It is human nature at its core to desire to be free. Freedom and liberty to choose what I want to eat tonight, or what occupation I want to serve humanity with for my day’s on earth. The ability to choose whom I want to marry and spend my life with. How do I want to worship, or who do I want to worship? Do I want to worship at all or do I want to not believe in a God or this fellow named Jesus?
In America, we have the ability to do all the above. Would it surprise you to know that in China for instance, your limited to one child! If you and your wife have a girl, you do not have the ability to ” try ” again to give birth to a son to carry on the family name. For nearly a hundred years in Russia for instance, you were told by the government what occupation you have for your working years. If the government needed plumbers, then you became a plumber. That simple! If you wanted to be an engineer, too bad, the government needs plumbers.
Early on in America, had it not been for a few brave souls, we would be worshipping today at the Church of England. There would no LDS Churches, Baptist, Church of Christ or Lutherans on American soil. These great men and women took it upon themselves to give you the ability to worship or not worship as you desired.
This weekend, between your grilled burgers, hotdogs and cold beer, do bow your heads and say a special thank you. For had it not been for these heroes, you would not be grilling that hotdog or drinking that iced down Budweiser. You would not be gathered around the flat-screen today, watching the greatest spectacle in racing either. Keep in mind, it is not just the soldier that we revere today. We also say thank you to the mother that gave her son for freedom and the dad, uncle and grandparent that gave their precious grand-daughter to the cause. We at Restoring America Project offer our deepest love, respect and gratitude to the families of these fallen heroes.
Onward to the business of ” Celebrating Liberty Festival “!
This past week has been an interesting one to say the least. On Tuesday we had the good folks from the Audio/Visual company, meet our esteemed event coordinators at the site to measure footage and blue-print the site for staging, sound and visual effects. Your’s truly had teleconference calls with these folks, plus the tenting folks and got our quotes in. Oh my, while I know that they are giving us outstanding pricing on tents for this little weenie roast called a festival, it is still a very large pill to swallow. Between staging and tents alone, we are in this at nearly $100,000.00! For a one day event? You guys had better have a real good time or I am gonna be one more upset patriotic cowpoke. And to think, I have yet to rent a portable out-house or buy a hotdog.
Had several great conversation’s this week with potential speakers and their staff’s. You guys are going to be stunned when you see who show’s up to speak at this event.
We also have put a couple of great press releases on behalf of the some of the good guys. We are inviting a great American hero or at least I believe he is a hero to speak at the Celebrating Liberty Festival. His name is Jim Bridenstine and he is running for Congress. This fellow is a Lt. Commander ( now in the Naval Reserves ) and used to fly F-18′s off the deck of aircraft carriers. He was active in Iraq and Afghanistan. I had the hair raising experience of landing on the deck of the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk CV-63 once. There is not a snow balls chance in ( you know where ) I would have done that hundreds of times like Commander Bridenstine did. Hat’s off to the Commander and I do hope he can fit us into his hectic schedule and speak. He is up against a true politician in Oklahoma’s first district. This guy named Sullivan, it turns out ( now keep in mind these guys are paid astronomical salaries ) has missed some 679 votes since being sworn in as a United States Congressman. How do you miss nearly 700 votes in Congress? If I am paid what these guys are paid and I am serving you the America people, I am not missing votes unless my house has burned down or I am running 104 fever, am contagious and bed ridden. This guy is absolutely a sham as a Congressman. Disgraceful is about all I can offer about that, and my hero Forest Gump would say.
Under the radar!
As promised, this is your weekly ”Under the Radar ” segment. This is the behind the scenes stuff.
O.K., as you know we have to raise boat loads of money to pull off these grand events known as ” Celebrating Liberty Festival’s “. One of the way’s to do this is through email fund-raising. Well our internal computer genius, was finally able this week to complete the code for allowing us the ability to do this. My heartfelt thank’s go out to our “un-named hero ” and you know who you are. Bottom line is, we can now put together through this maze of computer stuff “ that your’s truly doesn’t understand “, the messaging necessary to convince patriotic Americans to assist us.
tidbit of inside info. I am having serious problems finding a Ferris Wheel! We want a Ferris Wheel. Not a baby one either. I want a nice Ferris Wheel. If anyone knows a fellow that knows someone’s cousin who lives next door to a guy that is related to the Ferris Wheels owner’s third cousin, could you please have them drop me a line.
Almost forgot, if you do not know much about Ms. Krista Branch, do catch this video. It is a very enlightening video and you learn just how truly wonderful she is. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NczsSvyh6nI&feature=g-upl )….
That’s it for this week. I won’t even give you a sneak peek, but next week is going to be a barn burner. Don’t miss next weeks updates.
Until then, feel free to write me with concerns, problems, updates or gripes.
