VETERAN ARRESTED FOR ASKING BOARD TO SPEAK UP

Mug shot: Eddie Overholt was arrested for asking local politicians to speak more loudly during a town hall meeting

A 76-year-old veteran was arrested in Greenville, Tennessee for asking members at a town board meeting to speak up.   This apparent danger to society stated the board had assembled at a roped off table well in front of citizens in attendance to discuss a pipeline that would dump waste into a local river.   According to Overholt the board was speaking softly enough the audience could not hear.    After asking the board to speak up the veteran was charged with disorderly conduct.   He then ask to sit down as he was tired, but instead was cuffed and placed under arrest for resisting arrest.

The company that is asking for a permit to build the pipeline was rejected once before due to community opposition.   They are seeking another permit for this same line.

This little community, has its big government corruption of its own apparently.    One of the board members, according to Overholt sold property to the company building the pipeline.  The veteran wants the board member removed for a conflict of interest.

Another potential river pollution site waiting to happen.   Good to see a veteran still willing to hold his ground.   He should not fight this alone.

GOP Maine gov. is doing something revolutionary with food stamps and welfare

A. L. Luttrell:

To reblog or comment? More people will view the reblog……..and this is certainly worthy. Good to see a government official thinking, inside or outside the box. Is the Maine Gov. presidential material?

Maine’s Republican governor on Wednesday launched a push to make more “able-bodied” people work for their food stamps.

“People who are in need deserve a hand up, but we should not be giving able-bodied individuals a handout,’’ said Gov. Paul R. LePage.

LePage will reportedly stop seeking a federal waiver — issued at the height of the Great Recession — allowing some food stamp recipients to bypass requirements that they work or volunteer, according to local news channel WCSH.

About 12,000 of the state’s residents receiving $15 million annually in food stamps are considered to be able-bodied by Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services DHHS, which administers the aid. That means that they are between the ages of 18 and 49, have no dependents and are not pregnant or disabled.

In the next three months, those who are deemed able-bodied must work or volunteer with a community organization for 20…

UN PERSONNEL CONTROLLING SOUTHERN BORDER?

immigration borders its our country

 

Border agents are claiming UN personnel are in control of the border, determining who crosses and who does not.   If this is true, in an age of cell phone photos we have no evidence for the public?

If it turns out to be true, who authorized the UN (foreigners) to manage our border.   I believe most Americans would consider UN personnel to be illegal immigrants as any Mexican or South American immigrant.  The UN has no business on our soil outside of the UN Building.   I know this would not be the first time.  This is on Obama!

ADDICTED TO WRITING AND JUST GETTING STARTED

I introduced myself a day or so ago as a rookie to blogging and freelance writing.   I normally write about politics and current events, focusing on issues the mainstream media does not report.  I said then that I would like to post articles in the writer’s category occasionally to break the monotony and break to a lighter side.

As a newbie to writing I find myself becoming addicted to placing my body at this keyboard and writing something.    I already posted two political articles today……didn’t feel like a third, but I had to write.  I believe in the 6 to 7 weeks of experience I have now gained I see improvement.  I have a question for the more seasoned writers.   Is it good that I am addicted so quickly and can’t get enough?   I don’t want to just put words down, I really am striving for quality and content.   Is there a point where it is too much?   I know once in a while you need a break, even a vacation.

I was given a Nook a few months ago as a gift.  I bought books to read and found like most items you purchase, you get what you pay for.   Because I like to read a lot I would buy some books rather cheaply and some I ordered that were free.   I became quite frustrated with the lower valued readings, as the grammar and spelling errors were ridiculous.   I got to thinking, I can write better than this.   By all means I don’t believe writing is easy, it is not.

I had thought about writing before, but never really knew how to get started, and was I articulate enough?   My nook readings convinced me I should give it a go.  So, here I am and enjoy it more than my day job as an International Banker, which is not as glamorous as it sounds.

I could use some tips on the addiction thing, and critiquing is also encouraged, but don’t beat me up too bad.   Thank you for reading.

BORDER PATROL AGENTS REVEAL THE UN IS IN CONTROL OF THE BORDER

A. L. Luttrell:

If this is true, why no photos showing up on these blog pages of UN personnel. I did a Google search for photos of UN at U.S. and Mexican Border……none came up. All I got was one story, the above…..and another that the UN wants the immigrants to be called refugees. But let me repeat, no photos of the UN on the border. If they were there wouldn’t someone have taken a picture for all to see. I know I am not the only American against the presence of UN personnel. If the
border agents or anyone else have seen the UN, in an age where cell phone photos are a snap, why haven’t we seen the proof. I and many other Americans would consider UN presence no differently as illegal immigrants. They have no business on our soil outside the UN Building. We are capable of managing our own border and we need to do so. UN personnel on our border if true, THIS IS ON OBAMA.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) has previously met with officials from the U.S., Mexico and various Central American countries on the pretense of labeling the thousands of illegal immigrants as refugees. Indeed, the United Nations is now categorizing the present wave of immigrants as refugees from political and domestic violence that are merely seeking asylum in the United States. By declaring this to be the case, the United Nations is “lawfully” exerting their international power to force the United States to openly take in any and all refugees with welcoming arms, at the expense of the American taxpayer.

Some senators, including Harry Reid, rarely go home

A. L. Luttrell:

No wonder he is out of touch, I mean really how do you stay in touch with your constituents if you never see them. I would actually like to see Harry take the first flight out of D.C, on the tax payers, back to Nevada and STAY.

harry reidSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid rarely makes time to travel back to Nevada and listen to the voters who sent him to Washington, according to a Washington Examiner review of Senate disbursement records.

Reid’s office budget showed only 11 trips in three years, far fewer than any other senator.

At the rate of three to four trips per year, Reid was one of seven senators to travel to their home states 11 times a year or fewer.

Other high-profile senior lawmakers have records that aren’t much better. Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein averaged only nine trips to California annually, according to Senate office travel logs. That’s one-third as many as most lawmakers.
