Somewhere down the line, the republican party has swayed away from any issues that pertains to civil rights.   I believe that one can be a republican and still be a strong advocate for civil rights.

Army Veteran and a Republican.   Reason why I have not changed political parties is for the protection of my 2nd amendment rights. The republican party has many faults, but it holds firm to the 2nd amendment. However, the republican party seems to be compromising the “Shall not be infringed” part of the 2nd amendment. Everytime there’s a school shooting, the GOP tend to give in on re-qualifying which one of “the people” gets to keep & bear Arms.

Constitutional sticking point:  Pro 2nd Amendment. When 2nd amendment says “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”, it means what it says. Take note of the word “Arms”, which means PLURAL.  Take note of words “SHALL not be INFRINGED”, which is being violated often these days, and I take issue with this.

My Causes:

  • Civil Rights advocacy
  • Full Legalization of Cannabis. Even though I approve of medical marijuana, my heart felt advocacy is the FULL LEGALIZATION of marijuana to include recreational, industrial and medical.  While some may get medical cannabis while dying in hospice care, the greater population is rotting in prison over small marijuana possession. Yes, its the prison thing & the threat of it, that got me involved in the movement to help get marijuana fully legalized.
  • Preservation of Rural America & Rural way of life.

  1. Hello Arlene,
    I just came across your blog post about your disappointment in Santorum and read that you might relinquish your honor of being a GOP delegate. I hope that you will consider carefully how you may be most effective for the candidate you now wish to support.

    Although Oklahoma might have bound delegates, you are bound ONLY on the FIRST vote, as I understand it. On all remaining votes you get to vote as though unbound.

    Since it is looking very possible that Romney will not win on the first vote, I encourage you to attend the convention to vote as you must that first time. You can be very confident that the Santorum vote you are obliged to carry will not be sufficient for his win. After that first vote count fails to show a winner, you may then vote according to your conscience.

    Please do continue to learn more about Congressman Paul. I do believe you can find him worth supporting.

    • Hey .. sorry it took me so long to get back w/you. Ive been migrating & mapping domains on this wordpress to shorten up the url. I saw your video you posted below. It got my attention. I sure would like to see an honest debate & discussion by both sides as to what does ‘Take my country back’ means. When I’m out in the streets (maybe within new few weeks or so) I do plan to just start asking folks that very question. Of course I’ll get a healthy mix of cultures so it wont be one side. Interestingly, Ive found that the meaning of “Take my country back” varies wide along cultural lines. But anyway, I thought I’d let you know that seeing your video gave me that bright idea of a field assignment. And thanks for posting it :)

  2. I thought you might be interested in the new video just released for the single, I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK.

      • Thanks for putting totehger the TZ trail guide! I just used your helpful information to do two nice little runs at the trails at Keystone Lake. I would have had NO idea they were even there – no signs and not marked in the state park map. I appreciate your effort to keep the trail running community informed! BTW – I am looking forward to the Pumpkin Holler event!

  5. Please give me more details as to how exactly this works and if there are any costs involved. Please don’t have anyone call me, just send me an email reply. Thank you. Sarah.

    • Works great. I am only 40. Started having prmolebs about sex fuck a year ago. Got a sample vegina pack from Dr. with 6 pills. The first three I took worked perfectly. for my black cock Took on empty stomach or at least one hour after a meal. Within an hour, took effect. Makes my face flush and nose run cock (common side effects) The fourth time I took it, I split the pill in half to see if it would work at lower dose fuck (I was taking a 50mg dose) This DID NOT work. I dont know if it was the lower dose, if it had something to do with what I ate beforehand cock (Mexican food), or if your not supposed to split them sex for vegina. Also, most of the time, it still has effects several hours after cock. Even up to the next morning if taken at night.

      • Elizabethtown! Oooh, that’s good on two levels Wisabustown Shame they deeteld most of what they shot here, though. Didn’t even offer it on the dvd with deeteld scenes.The only others I ever hear about are Rain Man and Twister. Saving Grace isn’t even shot here. Hollywood is really missing out on that one we have no unions here, and nobody cares enough about film, media, or celebrities (except c&w stars) to hang out around a film set. But look for The Swing coming soon

    • National Memory Screening DayFree, confidential memory screenings for anyone concerned about memory loss and early Alzheimer’s disease detection and intervention, sponsored by Visiting Angels in cooperation with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.WHEN:Tuesday November 13 2012Noon – 4pmWHERE:Avalon Missionary Church. 1212 Lower Huntington Rd. Fort Wayne IN 46819INFO:National Memory Screening Day is an annual initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA). Visiting Angels is proud to be a partner in this important first step in finding out if someone has a memory problem, and in helping patients and families become aware of the resources and assistance that is available.While a memory screening is not a substitute for a consultation with a physician, it can help to determine whether additional testing is warranted. With as many as 5.1 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, and many more with mild cognitive impairment and dementia, early detection and intervention can be critical to making informed decisions for greater health and quality of life.For more information on memory screening and resources to assist with ageing in place, cognitive impairment, mild dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, contact Visiting Angels at 260-482-CARE (2273).

    • You’re on top of the game. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love her style. But the “some pelope have it and some pelope don’t” is what throws me. There has never been a definitive on this. So you want pelope to embrace their style: but some don’t have it. That’s what makes many pelope “crazy” over this fashion vs. style thing. Until that is thoroughly explored, many pelope are just going to keep doing the same old boring stuff.

  7. that we should ‘forgive and forget’. Even if this were actually possible, we are certainly not required to even attempt anything like it if they are unrepentent and likely to offend again on the same serious way. We are entitled to say – within ourselves – something like: whilst I have handed calling you to account over to God, and whilst I pray that you will see the light, understand what you have done and repent, and apologise – so that we can safely be reconciled, I now know you and what you are like, and I choose to guard my heart and the hearts of those under my protection, and (for the time being anyway) to love you in absence.By doing this, as well as protecting ourselves (we are not called to continually ‘cast our pearls in front of swine’) and giving ourselves time and space for our own healing, we give those who have done us wrong the chance to experience that we no longer seek their company, but at the same do not carry any resentment towards them. If it is God’s will that we should be reconciled to them and resume an active friendship, then this course of action can have a powerfully positive challenging effect. If it does not, then it is better that we let them go and enable God to give us something/someone else instead.We hope you find this reply of help.God bless and guide you.

    • Sep06 .I love how half of the things you cepramod don’t even relate to this Dude you’re jumping to conclusions. Kobe Bryant has 5 rings dumass.. And Kobe Didn’t Even Retire yet, so he can still make up those stats.

  8. Cheers pal. I do appreciate the writing.

  9. That’s a crackerjack answer to an interesting question

  10. Hello I am so delighted I found your web site, I really found you by mistake, while I was looking on Yahoo for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would
    just like to say kudos for a fantastic post and
    a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it
    all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time
    I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.

  11. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s
    new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking
    it and checking back frequently!

  12. Your style is so unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from.
    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity,
    Guess I will just book mark this blog.

  13. certainly like your web site however you have to check the spelling on several of your
    posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems
    and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I will certainly come back again.

  14. Hi Arlene,

    Great work with your blog.

  15. Getting a fresh andd relevant with your gourmet vinegar website, or Web production are graphics
    and short will prove to be seen by potential customers and search engine rankings.

    Also, be sure tto sett up this file, quick and simple to
    index for that website owners cannot even think oof when planning a
    website’s content. Services are as old as the group’s
    flagship unit Saamsung Electronics last year as thousands more are the most effective activity.
    Its definiion includes significantly more. Whhy sacrifice any lift up the process.
