"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

Happy Thanksgiving!

This picture of President George W. Bush was from his trip to Iraq for Thanksgiving in 2003.  Despite the media spin, the picture of him carrying the turkey was the real deal not plastic as even the NY Times admitted in 2004.  This is what we have been missing in the last two years.  President Bush has always put the military first.  We are so thankful he was our President when 9/11 happened less than eight months into his administration.  President Bush and his wife Laura brought class to the White House during their eight years in residence.  No one could ever doubt his his love for America.   Thank you President Bush for giving America eight years of your life during some of the most trying times.  We will never forget what you and Laura did for the Country following 9/11.   

One item of good news from South Texas.  The unthinkable happened yesterday with Solomon Ortiz finally conceding his Congressional race in South Texas to newcomer Blake Farenthold.  If someone bet on that race, they won a bundle of money if they bet against Ortiz because frankly we thought he was unbeatable and are still in shock he lost.  He lost by around 800 votes on election day and lost by the same number on a hand recount.  Congratulations to Blake Farenthold the newest Congressman from South Texas.

We want to wish all you a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends.  If you are traveling, have a safe trip -- hope you are not flying because it most likely will leave you in a not so good mood after clearing security. 

This is our last post for the Thanksgiving holidays and we leave you with this beautiful video with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir providing the music for 'America the Beautiful!'

We will be back on Monday!

God Bless You and Yours and God Bless America!
