    So this is to stop people from talking???? I do not write off the money I donate because I look at it as the government trying to purchase my thoughts so I will donate to what I believe in regardless of the IRS saying well you can not write it off as a Tax deduction.. If we did not have IRS then we would not have to worry about being targeted by them… Flat tax of 8% no write offs, that way no special classes….

    I tell people I was green before green was cool…Just wish people or families did what mine did teach to live without power, raise your animals and eat them, reuse everything because it has a purpose.. Not a global alarmist. If more people had to do without they would learn that what they have is precious, I do not want to go without electric, car, or other conveniences so when I hear green people talk it make me sick…Was taught everything cycles even our climate in and out of Ice ages…..

    I heard a story this weekend that people are moving to solar because it helps the environment.. I contend people do it to protect their pocket book, I do not cut back on anything for the environment I do it because I want electricity and not pay the man as much. With what our government is doing to the power grid by getting rid of power plants I want to be able to still have some power…. I know what it is like not to have power ( lessens taught by family). At the time did not understand but I do now!!!!

    To all of those who think the Rancher is wrong…. Think about this if you sent a check or (monies) to your apartment management, car payment, car registration, property tax,or house payment, electric bill, gas bill or any bill weather it be state, city, federal or just any company and they refused your payment how would you feel? Would you think it was right? Then what if they told you they are going to take your home, car or cut off your electric or gas or what have you….Then find out it is because of a Senator wants to use whatever it is for his or her personal gain. How would you feel???? Would you think it was right? Remember this can happen to anyone once Government gets involved in your personal well being and it does not matter weather it is state, city, county, or Federal…..I just want you to think about it…

    Here is my problem with all of this what happens to a person that is prescribed medication such as this person was and they do not have a mental condition we know the warning of such drugs, cause suicidal thoughts,anger or they may kill. Being able to know what military doc’s do not all but to many just give these drugs like candy and some times do not address or look for the real cause…It could be something else thyroid problem, hormones even in men can cause feeling of anxiety, aggression and as well as many other things other that PTSD or mental condition…. People need to be very careful when any doctor gives drugs like this sometimes they cause more harm than good!!!!!!

    The flag of the United States is the emblem of our identity as a separate nation, which the United States of America has been for more than 200 years. Therefore, citizens should stand at attention and salute when their flag is passing in a parade or being hoisted or lowered.

    The custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on flagstaffs in the open, but it may be displayed at night upon special occasions to produce a patriotic effect.

    When the flag is hung vertically on a wall, window or door the Union (blue) should be to the observer’s left. When the flag is hung either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the Union (blue field) should be to the observer’s left.

    The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously.

    It should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement.

    The flag should be displayed on all days, especially on
