A few of us were discussing friends and honesty and trust over at a blogger buddy's site. 
We all have acquaintances, but who are those you can't truly call friends? 
Mine are categorized as such:
People I Know- just that, I know your name (maybe if I can remember it) and a little information about you.
Buddy- Folks I know and maybe hang out with regularly, but just not close enough to depend on.
Good Friend- the select few that know things about me that even the CIA doesn't, and me about them. To be included in this elite group takes many years of trust, honesty, and usually a trip through Hell and Back.
These are the real Keepers.

Thanx North for the inspiration for today's entry.

First "Use rubber bullets" Now- "Stay off the grass"

We need to secure our borders, I think we can all agree on that. But how are we supposed to accomplish that task when our Border Patrol Agents hands are all but tied?
I had read earlier in the year about units ordered to use rubber bullets and bean bag shots as a first round of defense, because, well we don't really want to hurt anyone.  What?  This great plan cost the life of  U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

Now I find that are agents are being told to stay off the grass, so to speak.  The Department of the Interior is hampering operations along the border in order to protect possible endangered species, some of which no one has seen in years.  There are millions of acres agents are not allowed to drive/ chase illegals onto unless it is on foot or horseback.  What?  When did the life of a frog or some sort of cactus become more important than of the security of our nation?  Read more on this subject here:  http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=44433

As long as I'm alive and breathing.......

I like most all music, but my roots are in Country music, and artists like Justin Moore are the reasons why.  True, honest music about the important things.  Love, Life, Trucks, Bucks and Firearms. (oh and the occasional Beer)

Cannot wait for the the album on June 21, so I can load it into my MP3 player and make all the sheep at work uncomfortable!
Edit today's the day! I shall mount my trusty steed, Maxim, and aquire myself said audio recordings!

I Was Never There, But I Still Care.

Although I have never served, and have no family lost in the Viet Nam conflict ( one uncle went and came home), Welcoming the traveling wall with fellow Patriots alongside my son, was something to behold.  Great care was taken to erect this half scale model.  The veterans standing guard day and night.

 Today I took both my kids to see the wall completed, and as I stated I do not know any names personally, but I couldn't help feel both sorrow for those lost and pride for them at the same time, because whether they felt it at the time, but they where helping to spread democracy and root out communism.  In essence, we as a free nation tend to stand up for the little guy against the big bully. I felt compelled to read each and every name; 58000+ heroes, one and all.
