My Heroes Are Almost Gone

Coming from a small Texas town most my heroes were athletes.  At 70 years of age most of my heroes are gone.  The next to last one passed away this week, Darrell K. Royal.  In Austin he is just known as "Coach".  I was fortunate enough to have friends who arranged a couple of golf games with Coach when I first arrived in Austin.  These were some of the best experiences of my life.

Coach was a kind, tough, competitive gentleman, and a damn good golfer.  We played at a fast, in fact, frenzied pace.  When groups in front of us saw Coach coming they pulled their golf carts over to the side of the fairways and let us through.  Not out of fear, but out of respect.  After our golf games we went into the dining room for lunch and, Coach removed his golf cap.  He expected others to do the same.  It was not my practice at the time.  It has been my practice ever since and will continue to be.  Associations with Coach improved peoples lives.  God bless him.

All of my other heroes except one are gone now.  They include Mickey Mantle, Johnny Unitas, Don Meredith, and Tom Landry.  I am not sure what qualities these gentlemen share that appealed to me so much.  They were all great at what they did.  They loved their professions.  They were intelligent.  They were fierce competitors.  They were winners.  They weren't perfect but they never let their fans down.  They were just plain old fashioned heroes.

And to no ones surprise I have one hero from the political field, "The Gipper".  Ronald Reagan served in politics as he played the role of the famed Notre Dame coach, Knute Rockne.  He had every trait listed above and was gifted with the skills to communicate his values in simple understandable terms.  He stood on his principles like a rock.

I have one female heroine, Audrey Hepburn.  The actress who captured my attention in Breakfast At Tiffanys had many of the traits of the gentlemen, and she was gorgeous.  She concluded her career serving the world in UNICEF.  I made a sales call on them years ago in New York City and there was this huge picture in the lobby honoring her.  She was the real thing.

I have one hero left, and he is not a sports hero.  He is a minister for the Lord.  His name is Billy Graham.  He has the same traits:  greatness, pride in his mission, intelligence, competitiveness (a genuine Christian soldier), a winner in every respect, and he till this day and at this advanced age, he has never let us down.

These are men we will never measure up to.  I wouldn't want a hero who wasn't way better than me.  However, we can strive to be just a little bit better by following their examples.

I had a feeling in the last couple of months that Mitt Romney could be one of my heroes.  I think I see in him all the traits cited above.  But, he lost his race.  But then everyone of these other gentlemen lost at times as well.  My hopes are that Mitt doesn't quit his service to this country.  There are so many things he can do.  He could take the leadership of a Conservative Republican Party.  He could create an organization with a big cause maybe pulling together business leaders to influence those awful people in Washington.   

How about campaigning for the 10th Amendment of the US Constitution?  You know the one that says "powers not granted to the federal government by the Constitution, nor prohibited to the States, are reserved to the States or the people".  Powers outside of the Constitution are not granted to Obama and his thug Czars from Chicago nor are they granted to Liberal Judges, nor are they granted to a Democratic Senate (like forcing citizens to buy health insurance with other taxpayers money).  With Mitt's contacts and clout he could create a movement like the Tea Party, call it something like "Feds Suck".  OK, maybe that's not the name but you know what I mean.  This organization could lawyer up and sue the bastards every time they violate the 10th, which happens allot.

I would be interested in your heroes  or your ideas as to what Mitt should do.  Drop me an email and let me know.  Heck, maybe we bundle them up and send them to Mitt.

Meanwhile, thanks for trying Mitt.  And thanks for everything, COACH.

Why American Voters Chose To Arm Islamic Terrorists With Nukes

American voters by re-electing Obama have chosen to leave to our children and grandchildren a world with Extremist Islamic Terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.  How does this happen?  Pretty simple. 

Iranian born Valerie Jarrett arranges a one to one meeting between Obama and the Iranian Supreme Mullah (now that Obama is through the election AND HAS MORE FLEXIBILITY- REMEMBER THIS WITH THE RUSSIANS?).  These two come to an agreement in which the Middle East Leader of Islamic Terrorism makes public concessions that give the impression of only developing nuclear capabilities for peaceful means.  Meanwhile the Iranians continue their development while reinforcing their capability beneath the ground and out of reach of Israeli bombing. 

The world applauds Obama's peace efforts and the Iranians return to sanity.  Obama gets his second Nobel Peace Prize.  Israel has no ally left that would support any kind of a preemptive strike.  Issue closed.  Israel is toast, first.  Others come later.

Three years later the Iranians have nukes.  They arm their friends just as they have provided assistance in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, etc. in killing Americans.  Now back to today's headline, "Islamic Terrorists are armed with Nukes." 

But there was more to the headlines.  It also posed the question, "Why American Voters chose to do so."  This explanation is not as simple.  There are many, many reasons.

Resons such as:

1.   Protecting a woman's right to choose
2.   Supporting gay marriage
3.   Protecting against any efforts to save Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security
4.   To force rich people to pay their fair share while protecting "Obama's middle class" who pay no taxes
5.   To continue to get "my stuff" from Obama.  Stuff defined as food, housing, contraceptives, free health care, education, and spending money
6.  To continue to protect illegal immigration by keeping our borders open and not enforcing our laws
7.   To stop any efforts to be the guardian and leader of the free world by withdrawing and shrinking our military when we can use that money to get more "Obama stuff"
8.   Because our re-elected President is a black man and we owe them that
9.   Because I am not an old rich white man and feel that Obama understands me better
10.  Because Obama loans me money to goof off in college and never expects me to pay it back
11.  Because 3 million Republicans, who voted for John McCain, had better things to do than to vote
12.  Because Mitt Romney is a rich, white guy who is guilty of a felony by having illegal bank accounts in other countries and founded and ran a company that raided small businesses, laid off the workers who had to drop their insurance resulting in the death of their wives, sent jobs to China, and made millions of illegal dollars to send illegally to foreign bank accounts (oops, I had already said that once, but you know what I mean, HE IS JUST PLAIN EVIL!).  Besides, he never released 100 years of income tax returns and would not answer the question, "Have you stopped beating Ann Romney?"

The list goes on and on.  These are just a few of the reasons why smart, good, hardworking Americans, "Chose to arm Islamic Terrorists with nukes."

So what do we do?  We don't quit fighting.  But we do have our work cut out for us.

Think about it and spread the word.  The fight ain't over.


P.S.  This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."

Pre-Election Letter From the Chairman of the Hubbard City Cafe

November 4, 2012


Well these months of worrying about an Obama re-election and praying for a national wake up call come to an end on Tuesday of next week. Not sure how you feel about it but I can't help but feel downright sad. Sad that those who love this country and believe the founding fathers were geniuses are having to work so hard to preserve the principles that have made us the greatest and most honorable nation in world history.

I do believe that we have a slightly better than 50/50 chance to attempt to save the United States of America as we know it by electing Mitt Romney, but what a crying shame that it is this close. With it this close you can't help but think of what a calamity it will be if the other side sneaks out a slight electoral advantage and continues the destruction of the last four years.

Just look at current events:

1. A leftist, muslim leaning, anti-colonialist (anti-American) has near 50% of Americans cheering for his re-election as the leader of the free world.

2. There was no mention of Benghazi in Sunday's political shows covering up what will more than likely be the greatest political scandal in our life time. On the other hand if Romney is going to dodge the Benghazi murders, it makes it hard to fault the press. McCain and Fox are doing all they can to keep this in the news. If Romney wins on Tuesday his high road strategy was brilliant. If he loses, he blew it by not taking Obama on regarding Benghazi. In either case Obama is breathing a sigh of relief by not having to invent more lies to cover up those already spewed.

3. Three states (Maryland, Maine, and Washington) go to the polls to vote on allowing gay men and women to have full marriage rights. No state has passed this measure to date (only activist judges) but it seems they get closer and closer. With the current divorce rate and unwed mothers with welfare children all we need is to weaken God's sanctification of marriage even more.

4. Five states will vote Tuesday to legalize marijuana. Two (Arkansas and Massachusetts) are claiming its medical benefits, and three (Oregon, Washington, and Colorado) are calling it "recreational". As if young brains aren't weak enough now we need "recreation like this" to make them complete mush?

5. None other than Chris Christie praises Obama for talking to him on the phone, coming to New Jersey for photo ops that stop the pummeling he is taking from Mitt Romney, and for giving him millions and millions of dollars that Obama and we tax payers don't have for reconstruction of New Jersey in the aftermath of the storm. Sunday's talk shows praised Obama's bi-partisanship and his polls showing a 64% approval rating in handling the crisis. I hope Republicans remember this the next time Christie needs our support. To help re-elect Obama in a blatant act to get more federal aid for your state is what makes folks at the Cafe sick of politics and phony conservative politicians.

6. Reports circling the Internet are giving details of a May 2012 meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlining a Democratic FUND RAISER to take money from Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups. The participating groups published plans to defeat people like Allen West in Florida. Pelosi condemned Republicans Islamaphobes. Meanwhile Harry Reid announced this week that if Mitt Romney thought the Democrats would compromise with him if elected he was out of his mind. All of this as proof Liberals hate Republicans more than those who would destroy our country.

With these current events less than 60% of Americans believe we are going in the wrong direction. Put the negative way, over 40% believe the country is headed in the right direction. So why do I feel downright sad?  Just seems like this great country has more things to worry about then destroying marriage, destroying young minds with dope, and redistributing things from good people to freeloaders, muslim terrorists, and crooked politicians.

Sad or not, this old cowboy ain't going to quit fighting. Tuesday is going to tell us just how big a fight we've got on our hands. In any case, the folks at the cafe ain't done.  Real Americans will always find a way.

As always, hope you are making some headway with those do nothin, scum sucking Libs in our state capital.
