Where do Our Values Lie?

This is taken from Tim Wilson’s Facebook page 

Today a funeral was held for a young black man that was tragically killed. Minutes before he was shot by a police officer with a perfect record he robbed a convenience store and roughed up the manager. The young man also tested positive to pot in his bloodstream. The rest of this is yet to be determined due the ongoing investigation.

The problem I have with this is that this tragic death is that its been the top news story for weeks. The young man that for sure robbed a store and attacked it’s manager is been made into a heroic victim and martyr before the full story is revealed. His funeral today was attended by political leaders, famous entertainers and thousands of people that paid homage and respects to him. The event was televised on national TV on almost every channel.

The most troubling thing to me is that a United States Marine from Wilmington named Sgt. Arron Torian was recently killed defending this country. He had a perfect record and spent many years of his life rising to the rank of Sergeant. While his family, friends and fellow Marines paid their respects, there were no stars of entertainment or national public figures or national coverage at his funeral. No pictures of him lining the streets of Wilmington and no protesting the Islamic fanatics that killed him. Just those that truly loved him.

What we do know…minutes before he died, Michael Brown was robbing a store and beating up a clerk. Minutes before Arron Torian died he was defending his country. One got a national heroes funeral and the other did not. This experience tells a lot about the integrity of those public figures, stars and news media. I makes me wonder where our values and have gone.

Thank You Sgt. Arron Torian and all those Marines that I have died for this many times ungrateful nation.

Being a guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is an honor that is a life style commitment far beyond the mettle it takes to be a Marine.

We thank all the young men who guard this tomb every minute of every day.

Veterans, PTSD and Fireworks

Not everybody enjoys fireworks.  Some Veterans would like to raise awareness that these noises may bring back some awful memories to men and women of war.  Please think of others and be considerate.

Rules for Homeowners Taken Too Far

Imagine, decorating your yard for Summer, 4th of July, or just to be patriotic and being told that you can’t fly the American flag.  Well, you can, but only if it is the sort of flag allowed.

Vietnam Veteran, Larry Murphree, was told that he was not flying his flag properly and will have to remove it.

The Meaning of Sacrifice?

I don’t think, when submariner Matthew Hindes volunteered to sacrificed for his country, this is what he had in mind.

A Michigan judge has ordered that Hindes show up in court or lose custody of his daughter.  This normally, would not be an issue.  But currently, Hindes is on a submarine somewhere in the Pacific.

Stories like these are what motivate us at AmMo-PAC to take action.

We are (Am)erican (Mo)thers, and we are on a mission.

Whether it is the selling out of our children and their future, the abandonment of our veterans after risking their lives both at home and abroad, or the erosion of our most basic rights as human beings, America is now under attack. This land of liberty has been remade into something else entirely and we here at AmMoPAC come together as one to say, “NO MORE!”

Our mission is to protect:

OUR RIGHTS
From the Bill of Rights to our bodies to our own backyards, our right to live our lives as we see fit, according to what is best for us and for OUR families is slowly dying. From our right to protect our lives, families, and property as ensured by the Second Amendment, or our right to decide for ourselves what we put into our bodies, government and special interest groups have for far too long been allowed to trample those rights. We will no longer stand for this. We will fight repressive policy, and we will expose those men and women who support such policy.

OUR CHILDREN
We protect our children, because that is our job. We will not stand idly by as bureaucrats and collectivists work side by side to destroy the concepts of identity, personal morality and beliefs, independence, self-reliance, and self-worth in our children. We will not allow power-hungry politicians to use our children as data-collection portals. We will fight destructive and intrusive policy, and we will expose those men and women who support such policy.

OUR VETERANS
Our veterans are our parents, our grandparents, our sons, our daughters, our brothers and our sisters, our aunts and our uncles. Our veterans stood up and answered a call; they readied themselves and did what was asked of them, sacrificing more than most of us could fathom. They signed a contract promising to do this, and in return were promised just compensation that included healthcare and pay, and with them respect and dignity. BUT our veterans are being abandoned, and because their contractor is also their arbiter, they have virtually no recourse.
We protect our veterans, because they protected us. We support a strong military, one that protects America and is given what they are promised. We do not support unnecessary use of our military around the world that risks lives and keeps families apart. We will fight to keep our men and women in uniform home whenever possible, cared for and protected when not possible, and honored when they are through. We will fight policy that abandons our veterans, and we will expose the men and women who support such policy.

We are AmMoPAC, and this is our mission.
