Do Black Lives Matter?

If Black Lives Matter - Why are the majority of blacks part of the Democrat Party? Do they believe in the politics of the confederacy?, the KKK, or their Jim Crow Laws?

If Black Lives Matter - Why are so many blacks killed by other blacks? Chicago, Detroit, Etc.

If Black Lives Matter - Why do they support Plan Parenthood founded by Margaret Sanger who wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members,” This is a TRUE FACT, The majority of abortions performed by Plan Parenthood are on people of color. So why are you supporting a white woman who was obviously a racist, and founded a racist organization?

If Black Lives Matter - Why did Democrats after the Civil War ended in 1865, Southern States persisted in prohibiting blacks, now freemen, from owning guns under laws renamed "Black Codes."

I want to say, Black Lives Matte…

Can You Stand For The Truth!

Ladies & Gentlemen the Secession from the Union by the Democrat Party took place on December 20, 1860. They wanted to keep slavery! The states rights argument is just not true! If we branded the Democrat Party a terrorist organization after the Civil War we wouldn't be going through any of the racial injustice we see today. The people who really should be taking a knee are the Democrats! The stars and bars flag belongs to them! If any reparations should be paid to anyone the DNC should make those payments. If you (Vote R.E.D.) Remove Every Democrat from office life will improve! This party wants statutes removed because they are Confederate Democrats. They want you to remain on the plantation and not think for yourself.  The Switch argument you keep hearing about is a switch in tactics.  Don't fall for it! If your teacher didn't teach you the truth about American History you should demand a refund!

Unrest In The Country I Love

I have posted some political replies on Facebook that have been removed by censorship or have left me unfriended by my so called “Fair Weather Friends.” There comes a time in the course of human events that you have to take a stand for the country you love. I served our great nation for 20 years in the United States Air Force. All the time knowing that I was an ambassador in “Blue” representing our nation. No one is perfect we all have flaws. I pray to God everyday to be a better person. I’ve witness a lot of history in my 67 years and a lot was good but some events were very tragic. Our country was horrified by a wave of assassinations, wars without a will to win, and a lot of political discourse, thanks to the likes of Jane Fonda and Bill Ayers. These anarchists and others tried their best to radicalized segments of our society. But despite the radical lefts best efforts some how we found a way to band together and find a way forward. When 911 hit our nation we experienced a wave of…
