Obama and Hagel have surrendered our military strength
This week our president and secretary of defense — correct that to manager of appeasement — surrendered the military strength of the United States. This week Obama and Hagel told the enemies of liberty and freedom that it is open season.
Is Obama doing this intentionally? There can be no other answer than yes.
The American flag is being lowered and replaced with a white flag. But I for one will never surrender, never give up.

Who Is the One Conservative That Rush Limbaugh Says Has Every Democrat ‘Scared to Death’?
Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday said Dr. Ben Carson has the entire Democratic Party “scared to death” for several reasons.
“He is able to articulate and explain conservatism in a way that is persuasive, without raising his voice at all,” Limbaugh said. It sounds like your dad talking to you, not your dad, your best buddy talking to you.”
Should Carson ever decide to run for office, like his supporters want him to, the left would have a very hard time demonizing him, Limbaugh explained.
“Partially because of his race, but not just because he’s African-American,” he added. “You can say he’s all these horrible things, then you hear him, see him and listen to him and it doesn’t click.”
“He saves children with his hands. He saves their little brains.”
Doctor Ben Carson, that’s who !

I love stories about Texas. You can just visualize It happening.
I have a friend who is president of his homeowners association in the Dallas, Texas suburbs. They were having a terrible problem with litter near some of his association’s homes. The reason, according to my friend, is that six very large, luxurious new houses are being built right next to their community.
The trash was coming from the Mexican laborers working at the construction sites and included bags from McDonald’s, Burger King and 7-11, plus coffee cups, napkins, cigarette butts, coke cans, empty bottles, etc.
He went to see the site supervisor and even the general contractor, politely urging them to get their workers not to litter the neighborhood, to no avail. He called the city, the county, and police and got no help there either.
So here’s what his community did. They organized about twenty folks, named themselves the “Inner Neighborhood Services” group, and arranged to go out at lunch time and “police” the trash themselves. It is what they did while picking up the trash that is so hilarious.
They bought navy blue baseball caps and had the initials “INS” embroidered in gold on the caps.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand what they hoped people might mistakenly think the letters really stand for.
After the Inner Neighborhood Services group’s first lunch time pickup detail, with all of them wearing their caps and some carrying cameras, 46 out of the total of 68 construction workers did not show up for work the next morning — and haven’t come back yet.
It has been ten days now.
The General Contractor, I’m told, is madder than hell, but can’t say anything publicly because he could be busted for hiring illegal aliens. My friend and his bunch can’t be accused of impersonating federal personnel, because they have the official name of the group recorded in their homeowner association minutes along with a notation about the vote to approve formation of the new subcommittee — and besides, they informed the INS in advance of their plans, and according to my friend, the INS said basically, “Have at it!”
SO, FOLKS, I THINK YOU COULD SAY THAT TEXAS INGENUITY TRIUMPHS AGAIN!

Are you a military veteran who’s thinking of moving to Texas? Living in the Lone Star State could work to your advantage. There are several loan programs and benefits available for qualified veterans living in Texas.
They’re overseen by the three-member Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB), which was created right after Word War II. The VLB provides financing for Texas veterans at below-market interest rates.
The VLB originates the loans, not private lenders. All of these programs are almost entirely self-supported and cost Texas taxpayers next to nothing.
Veterans may have only one loan outstanding at a time. Couples (two married veterans) are also limited to one loan. These loans can only be used for property located in Texas.
Here are the five programs:
1) Veterans Housing Assistance Program
Allows veterans to borrow up to $417,000 for the purchase of a new home in Texas. This loan may be used along with VA, FHA, and conventional loans. Down payment amounts are determined by your lender.
2) Veterans Home Improvement Program
Gives veterans the opportunity to borrow money for home improvements and repairs on their primary residence in Texas. These loans max out at $25,000.
3) Veterans Land Program
Unique to the Lone Star State. Gives veterans the opportunity to buy raw land in Texas. The program is simple to use, and a 5% minimum down payment is all that’s required.
4) Texas State Veterans Homes Program
Offers affordable long-term nursing care for veterans, their spouses, and even some qualified parents. Stays are usually subsidized by the VA, so out-of-pocket costs are low. Provides high-quality, specialized care so elderly veterans can enjoy their golden years in comfort.
5) Texas State Veterans Cemetery Program
Offers free burial services for Texas veterans. Includes a free plot, free headstone, grave opening & closing, and perpetual care. Choose from various well-kept cemeteries spread out all over the state.
So, how do you know if you’re eligible for any of these programs?
VLB Program Requirements
1) 18 years of age
2) Bona Fide Texas Resident – means someone currently living in Texas who intends to remain a Texas resident. Texans on active duty outside the state may be considered residents.
3) Served At Least 90 Days Active Duty – Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, Army, Navy, or US Public Health Service or 20 Years Military Reserve Service.
4) Served after 1940
5) No Dishonorable Discharge
6) Repaid Any Prior VLB Loans
Surviving spouses of Texas soldiers who are MIA (missing-in-action) or KIA (killed-in-action) may also be eligible for these programs.
So, as you can see, Texas takes care of its veterans. Visit the VLB website for more details. Fill out a certification form to figure out if you’re qualified. And remember, final decisions are made on a case-by-case by the VLB Board.
