#ThankAVeteran for the Freedoms that you have today
The men in my family have a military history & all have served in the fight for freedom
It makes me feel happy to see the honor paid to our veterans on the holidays
The widget below shows some of the Twitter Moments posted on #VeteransDay in 2016
#VeteransDayIsEveryDay for those of us who have husbands & wives & sons & daughters who have or are active duty in our military services
Tonight Hubby & I will go to a local eatery that is offering a free entree to my husband because they respect his time serving our country
Unfortunately my son said there isn’t such a place near him when he gets off the ship tonight down in LA but I do hope that one of the small diners near him in CutOff LA will in fact be offering free meals for our veterans too.
Who knew how much our lives could change in only a few short years?
This time last year I was merely a member of my RTC helping our local town council & board of ed members get elected, this year…. well surprise surprise I’m an actual candidate for state senate. LOL who saw that coming? I didn’t see it but I have gone ahead & made the choice to take an active part in the political process & work to make positive changes in our government at the state level.
Seeing politics from the eyes of a civilian that has not been politically active, it has been quite an eyeopening experience Not just about the all the things which go into trying to run a campaign but also the process of it all. It’s been both a positive thing as well as negative in seeing just how dirty our elected officials have been in making certain that they stay in power.
I’m not liking the nastiness from people who have been friends fighting over their candidates, I do now understand why people say the 2 things never to talk about are politics & religion – some of the things I’ve seen & heard by people who have been at rallies together & picnics & bbqs… well some of it is way past mean & hurtful but down right heartbreaking to see from people that I respected & once held in high esteem
I’m also saddened by just how many people in the state do not even know what is going on but actually chose ignorance because they do not want to take an interest but only complain about what is wrong & nothing at all to fix it
So LIFE Changes Quickly sometimes for the better sometimes for the worst
We have choices in some of the changes & others we do not.
The most important thing is like the well known Serenity Prayers says “Change the Things that We Can”; I’m not 100% sold on the idea of accepting the line about “Accepting the Things We Can’t Change” because I’m not 100% sold on the idea that there isn’t anything that can’t be changed in some manner by Prayer & by Action of some sort
I pray that people near & far take some time to seriously consider life & what it offers & start to get active in it & start making positive realistic changes (0;} will you join me on the journey to make at least 1 positive change in life?
This week will be Rant & Rave on the show at Around the Cabin. The 1st of April was another awful nightmare addition of the gungrabbing laws forced upon law abiding citizens.
There will no longer be allowed Long Gun sales if a person doesn’t have a pistol permit.
Where a Hunting license was enough to be able to buy a long gun that is no longer the case now in CT.
No more long gun sales private citizen to private citizen now ALL Sales MUST Be RECORDED WITH THE STATE OF CT APPROVAL
There is a rally up in NY state that I have seen pictures coming back via facebook.
There wass already a 2A Rally scheduled at the Capitol in Hartford on the 1 year anniversary of the signing of SB1160. The Bloomberg funded GunGrabbing Mommy groups actually tried again to get the permits cancelled. When they were unsuccessful in that the racists turned over to the social media tool ThunderClap to use social media to bully the elected to bowing to their will.
This time we law abiding citizens are answering this attempt to silence us & bully us with using the very same tool to send our reply ENOUGH!
The gunowners group CTCarry has started their own ThunderClap demanding the repeal of the unconstitutional law & declaring that CT Chooses Liberty.
We law abiding citizens have been adding our voices to this message.
We invite you to add your social media voices to ours if you Stand With CT & Protecting Our Constitutional Rights including the Right to Keep & Bear Arms.
