The Proud American

The Proud American

Greetings to all of my followers and readers.

 

It has been since March of this year since I have last posted on my blog page.  For this I am sorry.  I know how much you all enjoy reading about Pig’s adventures and such.  There have been some personal issues I have had to deal with at home.  But there also have been some other issues I am still dealing within our society, our current political climate and how people view life in today’s world. 

 

I respect the fact that each and every person in this country has the God given right to their own opinion.  I also believe that each person has the right to express their own opinion.  What I don’t believe in is when a person thinks they have the right to intrude their over someone else’s rights.  To force someone to give up any freedom to accommodate others is wrong.

 

I believe our founding fathers of this great nation did the job right in setting up the rule book of how this country should be run.  I do believe that all men are truly created equal.  I believe in the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence.

 

I also believe that we, the people of this great nation, have lost our pride as Americans.  It is almost as though to be an American is considered to be dirty or no good or rotten.  We don’t puff up our chests and cheer for the USA anymore.

 

What happened to us?

 

Why did this happen?

 

Do you feel the same way too?

 

I’m not ashamed of America but it sure feels like I’m being told I should be.  Have you felt that way too?

 

How do we get our sense of pride back?

 

How do we become that great nation that stood for so much once again?

 

I see everyone’s opinions on Facebook, twitter, in the news and in talk on the street but I don’t see anyone doing anything about it. Why is that?

 

Are we living in fear of reprisal from our government, lawsuits, backlash of public opinion?  I know that I fear none of the above. 

 

I was taught and raised with respect. I was taught to show respect and I was taught to have manners towards people.

 

But I was also taught to stand up for myself too.  Back in my day if you had a problem with a bully at school you didn’t run and cry to the teacher.  Oh No, we were taught you catch ahold of that S.S.O.B. upside the head when he isn’t looking then pounce on him and beat the crap out of him.  If that bully was smart, he didn’t get back up nor did he mess with you or anyone else ever again. You just let him know you were not going to take it from him anymore.

 

I know that I am old school and to the younger generations that may not be cool. But when something is not working right it has to be fixed properly.  One technique I was taught and that I use quite often is to find the solution you need to go back to the beginning and start over.

 

I think that is what we need to do here in this country.  I think we, as a nation, forgot what it means to be an American and that we have lost our pride and our drive.  And we need to get it back.

 

When was the last time you read the three most important documents an American needs to know?  You know what ones I’m talking about.  I’m talking about the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution. I bet it hasn’t been since high school if not earlier than that for most of us.  If you haven’t read them, you need to.  They tell you what being an American is all about.  They will restore your pride.  They will give you something to believe in again.  Most importantly, those three documents will show you what is wrong with this country today. 

 

Do yourself a favor, and one for your country.  Take the time to read them.  Study them.  Know them.  I’m even leaving you a link to them.  And then pass it on to your family because they need to know them too.

 

May God Bless the USA!  Hey guess what?  I’m back

One More Step Up


 

Greetings to all my Pig fans out there.

 Best Buddies

I have great news today. 

 

There are times in our lives when we achieve great accomplishments.

 

Like drinking our first beer.

 

Or scoring your first (real) phone number from a hot babe.

 What a smile

Perhaps it could be the first time you reach 100MPH on a motorcycle and still be in 3rd gear.

 

For writers it could be your first cover story on a magazine.  And that is what has been accomplished for me.

 

Yeap, squeeze me til I squeal cause I just got my first cover story writing for Thunder Roads Texas Magazine.

 

I’m so happy about; I wanted to share it with you all. 

 

It’s a story about two people falling in love and riding off into the sunset together.

 Isn't she pretty

Read it and tell me what you think.

 

Ride HARD or Stay Home.

This is God’s Country, Don’t Ride Through it Like Hell.


 

Greetings,

 

For those of you who didn’t hear, yesterday I spoke of an event so powerful it will change your life. 

 

An event so awesome that there will never be another one like it. 

 

This event is guaranteed to remove any and all symptoms of cabin fever or broken heart syndrome.

 

“Is there a catch to it” you ask?

 

Only one, you just have to be there.

 

We are three days and a awake up from the St. Valentines Day Massacre hosted by the Alamo City Gypsy’s.  This year the Rally will be in Hondo at the Medina County Fairgrounds.

 

There will be beer & B.B.Q..

 

There will be babes.

 

There will be bands with live music.

 

I am sending this out as a personal invite for all to come and enjoy a weekend of the biker lifestyle.

 

Leave me a reply if you are going or not.  For those of you who cannot be there letme know so I can drink a beer in your honor.   

 

The Winter Months Take Thier Toll


 

Pig Writes

 

 

Greetings to all my fine friends and companions.

 Got a Light?

Has the winter months been getting you down?

 

Did you NOT get everything you wanted for Christmas?

 

Did the 49’ers loss in the Super Bowl put you into a state of depression?

 

Or maybe you have a touch of the cabin fever?

 

Let me guess: Your girl friend just dumped you so she wouldn’t have to buy you a Valentines Gift?

 

Stop all that flubbering.  Put down that bag of Cheetos.  Dry your eyes and blow your nose.  Because I have great news just for you. 

 

We are 4 days and a wake up from a great event.  It is an event so powerful it will change your life.

 

Are You Ready For This?

 

It is now 4 days till the St. Valentines Day Massacre.

 

Yeap. Starting this Friday and running until Sunday there will be 3 days of pure biker partying.  And let me tell you buddy; this is one rally I am pumped up for.

 

I want you to make plans to be there, because come rain or shine we are gonna tear it up and I want you to be there standing (or leaning) right next to me.

 So come on down to South Texas for a party you will not soon forget. (Unless you wake up that way)

I’ll be back soon with more details.

 

Ride HARD or Stay Home.

Writes Block


 

Greetings Piglets,

 

It’s your master of home
disasters here once again for another bull session.  Ever have one of the kind of day when you try
to come up with a new blog page to post, but you just can’t come up with
anything new to write about.  Well that
is just what I am going through.

 

I read a post the other
day from the word bitches that addressed the very problem I am having.  Trish Loye Elliott had 10 ways to help
motivate those with a little bit of writers block. I have to say they were all
good ideas for me to try.  Unfortunately
none of them worked for me.  Please allow
me to explain.

 

It was suggested to
have/use a “clean and quite work area”.
Pig Pens don’t work that way, they are muddy, dirty and loud.

 

It was suggested to
“schedule time for writing”.  Hard to do
when it interrupts your beer drinking.

 

I tried jogging like it
was suggested.  Nope, I spent all my time
running from the dog catcher.  Can’t
write when you are out of breath.

 

Trish also said to take a
shower.  Now this did start to work.  I began to relax and thoughts came to my
head.  Sadly, they all left when I got
out of the shower.  Mom started yelling
at me for all the mud I left in the shower.
Now I think she is going to need therapy.

 

I tried the writing
friends too.  But that didn’t work, they
all drink wine instead of beer.

 

So I switched to
music.  Nope, kept hearing beer drinking
songs
.

 

I had one last try to
make.  I tried reading quotes.  I’m not sure if it worked or not.  But I did find one quote I liked

 

“Our greatest weakness
lies in giving up.  The most certain way
to succeed is always to try just one more time”
Thomas A. Edison

So I wrote this blog
page.  Does that count?
