To all of the Veterans of the United States wars who have given their all,







so we at home could enjoy the fruits of our labor, and the freedoms we are letting slip through our fingers…

And to those heroes who returned to us missing limbs, blind and mentally burned out,

to inadequate medical and mental help and sometimes even end up living on the streets, or worst.  







And to the modern warriors who were lucky enough to return with sound minds and bodies, ready to go to work and build new lives,

to find there are no jobs and many of their homes have been taken from their families due to greed at the highest levels.









I say to you… pray with us at THEI as we hope that those of us who have remained in the Homeland wake up soon and have the courage and guts to reclaim those rights and freedoms as seen by our forefathers that are being shredded under Executive orders and secret society deals every day. 

 At any rate, America’s Heroes one and all, today is YOUR DAY.  Relax and enjoy yourselves .. you gals and guys deserve it.


We salute you and AIRBORNE!

Rand Paul proposes bill to prevent warrantless drone surveillance (w.video)

It’s about time one of our glorious leaders did something about this ever-growing intrusion into our rights. It’s just too bad that the only political family in our government to care about people’s rights when it comes to the intrusiveness of big government/business into our lives is the Paul family. I guess most of the politicos are either to busy trying to get re- elected or trying to stay out of jail, or both. Thanks Rand for caring . . . EDITOR

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced legislation on Tuesday that would prohibit law enforcement agencies from using unmanned aerial vehicles to conduct surveillance without a warrant.

“I’m not against technology per se,” he explained on CNN. “What I am for are the constitutional processes that protect our civil liberties. So, you know, it’s not like I’m against the police using cars or against them using airplanes or helicopters or robots. But I am for personal privacy for saying that no policeman will ever do this without asking a judge for permission.”

This year’s Federal Aviation Administration funding bill contained provisions that made it easier for law enforcement agencies to use drones within the United States. The new law requires the FAA to speed up the process by which it authorizes government agencies to operate drones. The law also requires the FAA to allow agencies to operate any drone weighing 4.4 pounds or less as long as it is operated within line of sight, during the day and below 400 feet in altitude.

The American Civil Liberties Union has warned the law could usher in an “era of aerial surveillance.” . . . Read Complete Report
