Fort Worth Officer Smoked Pot in Police Car

A citizen saw him sitting there in his patrol car, smoking pot, and turned him in.

Perhaps FW should run an IQ test for all  incoming new hires.

David Brown, Dallas’s New COP

He won out over 5 other guys under consideration for the same appointment. One of them as far away as Louisville Kentucky.

David Brown spent the last 5 years working second in command to the current Chief, who’s imminent retirement demands a new chief be named to replace him.

Chief Brown is from Texas, actually born/raised in a Dallas suburb. His stake is here, along with his fam and friends.You don’t get any more real/local/native than that. Brown is a hardliner, a by-the-book man. I imagine he’ll do very well. And with all the scandals involving Dallas law enforcement and city council members over the past few years, Dallas needs a good name and a good rep.

Some articles just released on Mr. Brown’s appointment:

Texas Woman Told US Flag Is Offensive

Honor_Fukengruvin

A local woman, in the DFW Metroplex area, was forced to remove Old Glory from her office because of a complaint made by a co-worker who is an immigrant to the U.S.

The woman’s supervisor removed her flag and placed it on the FLOOR, adding insult to injury. This took place right before the Memorial Day weekend no less (adding further insult to injury).

Debbie McLucas, a supervisor at Kindred hospital in Mansfield, Texas had a 3’x5’ flag hanging in an office that she shares with the other 3 hospital supervisors. One of which was the complainer and is also an immigrant here from Africa.

This is both unbelievable and OUTRAGEOUS!

The one who complained was the one who took it upon herself to remove the flag and then laid it down on the floor. That is inexcusable behavior and gross misconduct! This goes against protocol and is a slap in the face to our military, their families, and every American patriot. It is a most grievous insult, and should be treated as such.

“When McLucas came to work Friday, her boss told her another supervisor had found her flag offensive. ‘I was just totally speechless. I was like, ‘You’re kidding me,’ McLucas said.

McLucas’ husband and sons are former military men. Her daughter is currently serving in Iraq as a combat medic.

McLucas said the supervisor who complained has been in the United States for 14 years and is formerly from Africa. McLucas said that supervisor took down the flag herself.”

Incidentally, I submitted a comment, but it called me Anonymous. I didn’t see a place to sign in. My comment is the one that starts with “Shame, shame, SHAME . . . . “ I’ll figure out how to sign in and repost under my name. I’m not ashamed to tell the truth.

I hope that enough people will take offense at this and let Kindred know it. We need to be showing support for our country and our troops, esp at a time when our current administration is doing SO much to undermine our country and our troops.

Used to, immigrants to our shores were so very THANKFUL and GRATEFUL to be allowed to come live here, in a land where they could prosper and do better for themselves than what their previous prospects had been. They would join the military and took GREAT pride in displaying the American flag and in participating in acts of freedom granted to them by being citizens of these United States of America!

Now we have a bunch of spoiled rotten little babies on the bottle,  that are not only fault-finding grumbling murmurers, but also most ungracious and unappreciative. This type of person really should consider leaving America and moving somewhere else entirely. Let them go to France or better yet–CUBA!

National Tax Day Tea Party–Revolution Begins

Make no mistake, Americans are getting sick and tired of the games that Washington law makers are playing with our monies.

People of all ages, all races, all walks of life are uniting for the overall good: to send a clear and distinct message to our administration in Washington (and in political seats all across the country,  local and state) that EVERY lawmaker can be replaced. He/she can be retired, and a better man/woman that actually loves this country can take their place.

We need to throw out all the politicians and replace them with TRUE STATESMEN. Understand that there is a world of difference between a ‘politician’, and a ‘statesman’. Learn the difference. Ronald Reagan was a statesman, the head of our current administration is a motivational speaker full of empty promises and hot air.

On Greta Wire, she has a pole asking if this HUGE event that took place all across our nation today was a one time event, or the beginning of a serious movement.

When I took the poll there had been 28794 votes taken at that point. 26437 (or 99%–yes, NINETY-NINE PERCENT) all voted YES, that this is the Beginning of a movement. Only 357 (or 1%) voted No.

World Net Daily ran the story, “Taxpayers descend upon politicians in numbers far beyond expectations

Ning Results for Tax Day Tea Parties across the nation are here.

Pajama TV is running an article instructing individuals on starting their own tea party protests.

And Glenn Beck’s site announced the governor of Texas announcing that we can indeed secede, it’s completely doable, and at this point fiscally responsible to the tax payers of this great state. (But that’s another story entirely, which I’ll have to add later. I’ve already written two articles on that subject in this blog site at an earlier date.) My point is, people are fed up and ready for REAL change. not ‘chains’.

There is some totally awesome video footage taken from the Tax Day Tea Parties from around the nation. They really stir the patriotism. And if you haven’t heard Lloyd Marcus’ Tea Party Song, then you’re missing out! 🙂

I’ll include some videos here for your viewing pleasure: 🙂

Who’ll Protect Our Protectors?

badge-5

In defense of our law enforcement men and women that are are being charged/held erroneously while the criminals were let off easy.

It is a grave injustice and real shame upon America when good people are condemned and confined while the baddies are set free.

The stories are sad, utterly disgusting, and absolutely true. I’ve met too many law enforcement personnel to think that any of the officers on this website deserved what they’re getting. In addition, I’ve heard the factual accounts from eye witnesses from a few of the stories posted there right now. Some of the stories involve illegal aliens who were armed and attempting to harm either the police officers themselves, other officers, or helpless civilians.

If we don’t get hold of the soft-headed liberal judges and take America back, we won’t be America much longer.

If you can catch a recording of the Dave Levine Show from the Patriot’s Heart Broadcasting Network  for March 18, 2009 9 pm-http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PatriotsHeartNetwork-He interviewed Mike Cutler, frequently called on by Fox news to consult on certain issues. Mike is a former cop who is very active in issues involving illegal aliens and terrorists.

On Dave Levine’s show he always mentions the account of the insanely injust treatment of officer Stephanie Mohr who was wrongfully charged and incarcerated for doing her job.

And on the show where Cutler was interviewed, Mike Cutler told more involved facts about Ms. Mohr’s case.

She was on duty and had her police dog with her. A thief/robber (also an illegal alien) was running away, wouldn’t halt and she sent her dog to stop him.

The caught-dead-to-rights repeat criminal was not even injured or harmed in ANY way. But Officer Mohr was tried and found innocent by 10/11 jurors. They could not agree on one point (I can’t remember what it was, but the whole case was pretty cut-and-dry to begin with. Anyway, they tried her again and then she was found guilty (of WHAT exactly?) and sentenced to several years in THE PENITENTIARY.

She’s served like 10 years already for doing her job. THAT is so totally twisted, it’s a shame on all Americans when we treat our protectors that are decent and doing their jobs like criminals.

Fort Worth Star Telegram is on the Endangered List

An article released today (03.11.2009) from our local MSNBC affiliate suggests that the Star Telegrams’ days may be numbered:  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29623133/

MSNBC cited an article from Time Magazine article: http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1883785,00.html?iid=tsmodule  (under the Business & Tech tab) titled, The 10 Most Endangered Newspapers in America by 24/7 Wall ST. Monday, Mar. 09, 2009.

The Star Telegram has been around as long as I can remember and is Fort Worth’s main paper.

It’s always been a legitimate news source without the bias you find in papers like the New York Post or Washington Post.

The Fort Worth Star newspaper was started by Amon Carter in 1905. The paper was doing badly and losing money so in 1908 Mr. Carter bought out the competition (Fort Worth Telegram) and merged the two papers to form the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Here’s an interesting quote from the Wikipedia article on the Fort Worth Star:

“From 1923 until after World War II, the Star-Telegram was distributed over one of the largest circulation areas of any newspaper in the South, serving not just Fort Worth but also West Texas, New Mexico and western Oklahoma. The newspaper created WBAP in 1922 and Texas’ first television station, WBAP-TV, in 1948.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Worth_Star_Telegram

A few other interesting facts on the paper from Wikipedia:

Pulitzer prizes

Online presence

The Star-Telegram is the nation’s oldest continuously operating online newspaper.[citation needed] StarText, an ASCII-based service, was started in 1982 and eventually integrated into the paper’s current website.
