Cody’s Flag; An Act of Patriotism

[photo via Google]
It warms my heart to know that the gestures of one 13 year old, Cody Alicea has impacted this nation with his simple act of patriotism. Cody rides his bike to school like many children today and on the back of it he proudly displayed our flag, the American Flag. However, caving into the fear of problems to come the school asked Cody to remove his flag to avoid confrontation due to the fact that he attended a multi-cultured school and could possibly face adverse reactions. It must be hard to be so patriotic while living in the midst of such cultural diversity. The school was apprehensive about this flag because of the upset when the Latino children waved the Mexican flag celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Fears of racism, bigotry over shadowed Cody’s ability to express himself as set forth by our bill of rights and Constitution.
It wasn’t long before the community rallied together to offer support and challenge the decision which was quickly reversed.
Cody, being from a home of veterans clearly was honoring not only our troops but of a grandfather who had served our country. So his act was not only one of love for country but of family. How refreshing it is to see this type of love resonating from this young man. What a brave and courageous statement he was making by displaying our flag. What a valuable lesson we all could learn from his unselfish act.
Cody was said to be both, “nervous and proud” by all the support that rallied around him. There is even a facebook page that support Cody’s patriot’s heart. He will be going to Washington and deserves all the fan fare he has received and I pray that we, the adults, can all learn a valuable lesson, one taught to us by a mere 13 year old……

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.  I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.  ~Abraham Lincoln

Lally signs The Contract From America..Support Him Now and Bring Real Change To DC

In October of 2008 John Yarmuth (D-KY) made this statement,

We can’t change Washington unless we change the people we send there

These words ring true today as we face the mid-term elections and its time to send new people to Washington to replace the liberal elitist that are intent with changing the foundation of our country for years to come. This why it is of grave importance that we send Todd Lally to DC this November. Todd has signed the contract from America, by signing this contract Lally proves that he is willing to stand by the values and principles as set forth in the contract

Protect the Constitution
Reject Cap & Trade
Demand a Balanced Budget
Enact Fundamental Tax Reform
Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government
End Runaway Government Spending
Defund, Repeal, & Replace Government-run Health Care
Pass an ‘All-of-the-Above” Energy Policy
Stop the Pork
Stop the Tax Hikes

Monday June 28, 2010 a money bomb for Todd will start and I am calling for Patriots across this great nation to donate what you can for this man that has chosen to step up to serve our great nation once again, the first by serving her in the military and now defending her honor once again!
Any denomination is not too small…We need to bring real change back to our country and support those who are willing to be our voice and stand strong in resistance to the tyranny we now face…..

Conservative Change For Kentucky:Lt.Col.Todd Lally

A Patriotic Nurse is proud to endorse Todd Lally for Congress. Lally is running to unseat incumbent John Yarmouth (D-KY) who has aligned himself with Pelosi, Reid, and Obama and has supported them with their attempts to dismantle this country and usurp the very principles in which this nation was founded upon. Like Sen. Scott Brown Todd is a private citizen who has decided to answer the call to duty once again to restore, protect and defend America. Some interesting facts regarding Todd Lally is that he:

Is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Kentucky Air National Guard and a pilot on the C-130 Hercules. Having served in the military for 22 years, he is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. He is graduate of the Academy of Military Science and the Advanced Airlift Tactics Training Center and the Air-Operations Officer for the 123rd Contingency Response Group, a rapidly deployable force that can open and conduct airlift missions out of remote or damaged airfields. This group is the first Air Force personnel to arrive at a location to survey the airfield and perform combat or humanitarian operations. Lally is the recipient of two Air Medals. The first medal was for flying 50 missions into war torn Bosnia supplying the civilian population with food and medicine. The second medal was for saving a Seattle man’s life in the Atlantic Ocean. He also is a crash investigator for the U.S. Air Force.

On the issues Lally is a strong candidate and therefore my choice to be my voice in Washington:

The only candidate who has a record of supporting right to life, traditional marriage, and believes our country should have judges on the Supreme Court who strictly follow the Constitution and will resist judicial activism. Todd is very proud to have been endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life in his run for the Kentucky’s Third Congressional District.

On the topic of health-care Lally feels:

Our healthcare system is in more trouble now than it has ever been. With the passage of Obamacare, we have stepped into new territory. We have redefined the relationship between taxpayer dollars and funding for abortion, we have enacted the first federal mandate that every US citizen must purchase a product.

Lally feels strongly about Taxes:

In this greatest land of opportunity, “wealthy” has become a dirty word with certain politicians. Given that many of these people are entrepreneurs and small business owners, attacking them into submission doesn’t just hurt them, but the dozens and hundreds of employees they may lay off. I will not continue the congressional policies of creeping up the middle-class tax burden or punishing small business owners. Instead, I favor a tax code that lets ALL Americans keep more of their hard-earned money.

As for jobs Lally feels that:

Jobs are created by business, not by government. Government serves to protect businesses and consumers from collusion, corruption, and misuse of monopolistic control. Government should manage these tasks with as little extraneous impact on business as possible

I feel very strongly that Todd Lally is the man we need to fight the cap and trade that is currently being supported in Congress. The legislation is merely taking money out of our pockets and putting Americans out of work.
I am humbled to know how he feels about the men and women that daily put their lives in harms way to protect the rights we enjoy and often take for granted. His stance on National Security is:

No one loves peace more than the soldier that bleeds for it. As your Congressman I will continue to support a strong national security policy that provides for the world’s most dominant military, but one that also integrates the other instruments of national power into a cohesive, comprehensive and seamless defense strategy.

The race is on in Kentucky and Johnson is leading the Pack

Bill Johnson’s resume speaks for itself, he is not only a leader in business but has an extensive background in energy.

“While at GE, he was a corporate auditor and global information security manager. In addition to GE, Bill has worked for Kroll-O’Gara and Logical IT, both located in Cincinnati. Most recently, Bill was part of an international leadership team at BP, responsible for contracting and buying of over $1.2 billion of 3rd party goods and services. Throughout his career in business, Bill has cut costs, managed multi-million dollar budgets, led international teams, and delivered projects on time.
Bill’s military and business leadership has taken him to Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, China, Azerbaijan, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Panama, Belgium, India, and Canada. Through these travels, he has interacted with diverse cultures and witnessed first hand why America is the land of opportunity.”

There is a lot of mud being slung here in Kentucky, Rand Paul and Trey Grayson appear to be trying to co-opt themselves as being the only true crusaders for the coal industry. I find this somewhat amusing. Paul is a successful opthamologist while Grayson is your career politician. However, both men feel as though they have the expertise to speak out on this most important industry not only for Kentucky but for America as well as we continue to try to resolve the energy crisis in which we face.
Paul makes this erroneous claim while attempting to sling the mud against the Grayson campaign.

There is no candidate who will stand up for Kentucky’s Coal Industry more than Rand Paul.

David Adams [Paul’s campaign manager] continues with this jab at Grayson.

“So we feel like going forward, that this is a zero emission, um, process, and as where some of these coal fire plants are being phased out, we need to probably, we need to bring nuclear on,” Grayson said. “And from a cost effectiveness standpoint, uh, they’re much more cost effective just because the cost to make a clean coal plant is so expensive that nuclear becomes a viable option.”

This bit of mud slinging has prompted Johnson to release a news release, I was shocked to see that it was written about by one who seems to be backing his opponent. You can view the news release here.
So voter’s in Kentucky, I ask you, who would you trust in making informed decisions regarding the energy crisis we face? A doctor, career politician [more of what we already have in Washington] or one who actually is “informed” on the issue.

Kentucky Bill: Campaign in Full Speed Mode

I think that we can most assuredly say,
Bill Johnson’s campaign is full speed underway.
As a combat Naval officer he knows just what to do,
To protect and defend this nation for me and for you.
You can get his personally recorded US Constitution on-line,
And listen for yourself to his Reagan conservative bottom line.
You see, it’s the citizens’ owners manual, the seeds of our liberties’ tree.
The Bill of Rights comes directly next and is for our Democracy a written lifetime warranty.
His opponents scoff, they snarl, they even stomp and whine,
For they know sure enough in their hearts,
The will never live up to the Johnson straight Constitutional line
DUTY-HONOR-COUNTRY

There was a debate this past Saturday in McCracken County in Kentucky that featured three of the top contenders for the retiring senate seat of Sen.Jim Bunning. From all the feed-back that I have received Bill Johnson’s campaign has turned it up a notch and is now bringing on the heat! He is up against Dr. Rand Paul and Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Paul is a Libertarian that is co-opting the Tea Party movement claiming to support smaller government, less taxes etc. but clearly is only trying to bring to Kentucky what his father Ron Paul tried to do in the ’08 presidential elections and the citizens of Kentucky are far smarter than given credit for. Having personally been attacked by members of the Campaign for Liberty by merely asking that my name be removed on their mailing list!
I wasn’t able to attend the debate but have been kept informed with comments and emails about how Johnson stood firm on his conservative platform, holding proudly the Constitution. This, for me, resonates; HONOR-DUTY-COUNTRY three very strong characteristics I look for when selecting a candidate to support.
There was a lot of rumbling throughout the state by one site or another but I suggest you read “Paul, Grayson snipe at each other“, the comments are actually better than the post itself and is a good indicator of the sign of the times here in the Kentucky political scene. My all time favorite comment on my site about this event has should be shared once again, it pertains to the “whining” and “foot-stomping” of one Rand Paul…

Let’s describe the opening shall we…Announcer, First opening statement will be Dr. Rand Paul. Then Secretary of State Trey Grayson followed by Bill Johnson.

Dr. Paul opens, Whaahh! I am a Pro Life supporter! Whahhh! I am too a Reagan Conservative. I want an apology Whahh!
Let’s get real here people is this the level of Paul’s pain threshold in the political arena? This guy is moaning like a little twit! Like we need another cry baby in the US Senate.
Mr. Grayson, Opened with a standard opening and didn’t whine.
Mr. Johnson. Opened with a standard intro as well not whining or pouting either!

Back to Dr. Paul, He rudely coughed into his mic during Mr. Johnson’s time to comment without saying so much as excuse me or I am very sorry. Again plain rude.
Through out the Debate Dr. Paul carried himself poorly, rolling his eyes, leaning against the lectern shifting positions regularly. All while the others candidates stood politely not displaying any body language indicating their wish too be elsewhere as did Dr. Paul. At the end Dr. Paul could only be described as having “Tursely given his fellow Senate candidates a brief hand shake and then almost tripping over himself to exit the stage to the waiting arms of one would presume too be his mother given his cry baby outbursts.
Bill Johnson is the stand out winner in this debate, no matter if you counted signs going out the door or the applause meter or if you listened and watched these three candidates present their case for why they should get your vote.
I was impressed with Grayson, even though I have said on more than a few occasions I would not vote for him for anything. He reeks if the establishment. Last night I changed my opinion of Trey a little. For you Rand Paul Fans I was in that camp last Summer and part of the fall. I am looking for the best man for the US Senate not an image.
At end let me describe where the candidates decided too be. Paul and Grayson where in the auditorium with a few big supporters and the members of whatever press were there. Not the everyday folks. As the majority of people were leaving Bill Johnson was out in the “lobby” pressing the flesh and talking to the people. It was a great day for Bill Johnson

So I strongly urge you to get involved and donate what ever you can to support Johnson’s efforts. This can done by simply donating $5.00-$10.00 what ever you can to ensure that our true conservative values are truly represented not only for Kentucky but for all of America as well. You can send your donations here.

From A Massachusett’s Miracle To One For Kentucky

We all saw the “Massachusetts Miracle” and how that a grassroots candidate has made his way to Washington in his pickup truck no less! A Patriotic Nurse takes great pleasure in introducing to you another such candidate. Bill Johnson of Kentucky is making his bid to become the next senator from the bluegrass state. I am not only introducing him as our next senator but endorsing him as well! Let me explain..Mr. Johnson is a veteran of the first gulf war;

Bill served on board the nuclear powered cruiser USS Virginia during the first gulf war. He later served on the staff of the Commander, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, and then onboard the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower. During his military service, Bill received the Joint Meritorious Unit Award three times, Sea Service Deployment ribbon twice, Southwest Asia Service Medal with bronze star, Coast Guard Special Operations ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Navy Commendation Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, and Navy Achievement Medal. He received an honorable discharge after 10 years of military service.

Mr. Johnson does not refer to himself as a politician but that of a Reagan Republican Conservative. He supports,”limited government, low taxes, strong military, gun ownership, marriage between one man and one woman, life begins at conception, and free markets.”
Johnson is one man running against two others and describes them this way…..

One of my opponents was a former Democrat and Bill Clinton delegate while the other has strong libertarian views and helped his father run on the Libertarian ticket for President.

To become better acquainted with the issues that Bill is most passionate about you can view them here. Johnson has been snubbed by the other candidates and has been left out on debating the issues that not only matter to those of us in Kentucky but for America as well. You can view that article here.
I strongly urge all of you to become better familiar with this candidate, he is not only good for Kentucky but will be good for America as we fight to return to our true values and principles. We have all witnessed how the grassroots movement is gaining momentum, lets reeve up the momentum for Bill and send him to Washington!
