>> This is probably the best e-mail I've seen in a long,

>> ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big

>> ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended.
>> This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for

>> ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from

>> you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
>> ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and

>> ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care.
>> That would be nice, but if it would turn out the same way as

>> health care.
>> ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm
>> other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or
>> kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want

>> ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions

>> rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where
>> you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV
>> or a life of leisure.
>> ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right

>> gladly help you along in hard times,but we expect you to
>> take advantage of the opportunities of education and
>> vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
>> (AMEN!)
>> ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being
>> an America means that you have the right to PURSUE
>> happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are
>> unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by
>> those of you who  were confused by the Bill of Rights.
>> ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We
>> don't care where you are from, English is our language.
>> Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!
>> (and last but not least....)
>> ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right

>> If you agree, share this with a friend.
>> No, you don't have to, and nothing tragic will befall

>> I just think it's about time common

Now, how could this possibly happen  today in this country


This sort of reminds me of the news reels I would see during WWII showing how the Gestapo would show up at peoples home and drag the family out when their views were not what the nazis wanted.  Scary…………Also reminds me of the 30 attorney investigators sent to Alaska to see what they could pin on Gov Palin.  Really scary……..

Sent to me from a friend who says, …

"This woman called in to Sean Hannity show while I was listening.  Click on the link to the newspaper account.  If Obama wins, I fear those who oppose him will be carted off to jail!  This is very very frightening!!!"

This actually happened in Lufkin , TX    —

Dear Friends:  We have had some interesting things going on our street this week but this ‘takes the cake’. The election is less than a month away – people need to be aware of this information of the tactics that have been used this week on my neighbor.

This is not a political agenda I am on, this is a matter of principle.  She is not a ‘mental case nor political activist’ just your everyday young Mom with small children and a husband out of the military.  If this is the kind of ‘change’ Mr. Obama is referring to, we are definitely in for more than what has met the eye. What has happened here is not only appalling but frightening to think we may no longer have the freedom to speak against ‘the powers that be’ without the Secret Service showing up at your door. Keeping in mind, there is no taped conversation – simply a disgruntled volunteer who was not getting the response she was looking for. Jessica has contacted several politicians and news organizations – some who have told her ‘this is out of my jurisdiction’. Please! Enough is enough – I for one will stand behind this young woman and notify every person I can possibly think of to make people aware of this travesty! I hope you will forward this on as well to as many people as you possibly can – especially to our elected officials and news organizations. Feel free to email me for verification.

On Wednesday the 1st of October I received a call on my cell while in the car with my husband.  It was a woman who identified herself as calling from the Obama Campaign.  The phone # she called from was 903-798-6020 which lists as ‘Obama Volunteers of Texarkana ‘ ( Texas ).
She asked if I was an Obama supporter to which I replied:
‘No, I don’t support him, your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the State Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time.’  I hung up.
Thursday, October 2, I answered the front door to find the Secret Service.  Immediately I thought of the call and was furious that apparently you are not allowed to call Obama a Socialist without the Secret Service coming to investigate.  Instead, they asked me about the following comment, relayed by the Obama Volunteer of Texarkana who called me, unsolicited on my cell phone:
‘I will never support Obama and he will wind up dead on a hospital floor.’

My husband laughed and told them No, she called him a socialist but she never said a word about him dying.  I gave them my actual quote.  The woman asked insolently Oh?  Well why would she make that up?

I replied that I supposed she wasn’t happy about what I said about her candidate and the Agent said Thats right, you were rude  The last time I checked being rude wasn’t a crime in America.
Luckily the big file they had gathered on me didn’t indicate mental instability or a past life of stalking/crime, however they did want to know how I felt about Obama.  That was my limit.  I told the Agent in no uncertain terms that my thoughts were not pertinent to their investigation, that this was America and the last time I checked I was allowed to think whatever I wanted without being questioned by the Secret Service.  In fact, even if I had said what she claimed, that isn’t a threat.  I told them (again) and my husband verified that the statement reported by Obama’s volunteer was a lie.  I asked them if there was a tape of the call and they said no.  I said, ‘So on the word of a ticked off Obama supporter you are on my porch with no other evidence and you want to question me about my THOUGHTS!?’

They informed me that there was no evidence she was an Obama supporter

APoem That Gives You Goosebumps…

A drunk man in an Oldsmobile

They said had run the light

That caused the six-car pileup

On 109 that night.

When broken bodies lay about

‘And blood was everywhere,’

‘The sirens screamed out eulogies,’

For death was in the air.

‘A mother, trapped inside her car,’

Was heard above the noise;

Her plaintive plea near split the air:

‘Oh, God, please spare my boys!’

She fought to loose her pinned hands;

‘She struggled to get free,’

But mangled metal held her fast

In grim captivity.

Her frightened eyes then focused

‘On where the back seat once had been,’

But all she saw was broken glass and

Two children’s seats crushed in.

Her twins were nowhere to be seen;

‘She did not hear them cry, ‘

‘And then she prayed they’d been thrown free, ‘

‘Oh, God, don’t let them die! ‘

Then firemen came and cut her loose, ‘

‘But when they searched the back, ‘

‘They found therein no little boys, ‘

But the seat belts were intact.

They thought the woman had gone mad

‘And was traveling alone, ‘

‘But when they turned to question her, ‘

They discovered she was gone.

Policemen saw her running wild

And screaming above the noise

‘In beseeching supplication, ‘

Please help me find my boys!

They’re four years old and wear blue shirts;

‘Their jeans are blue to match.”

‘One cop spoke up, ”They’re in my car, ‘

And they don’t have a scratch.

They said their daddy put them there

‘And gave them each a cone, ‘

Then told them both to wait for Mom

To come and take them home.

‘I’ve searched the area high and low, ‘

But I can’t find their dad.

‘He must have fled the scene, ‘

‘I guess, and that is very bad.’

‘The mother hugged the twins and said, ‘

‘While wiping at a tear, ‘

‘He could not flee the scene, you see, ‘

‘For he’s been dead a year.’

‘The cop just looked confused and asked, ‘

‘Now, how can that be true? ‘

‘The boys said, ”Mommy, Daddy came ‘

‘And left a kiss for you.” ‘

He told us not to worry

‘And that you would be all right, ‘

And then he put us in this car with

‘The pretty, flashing light. ‘

‘We wanted him to stay with us, ‘

‘Because we miss him so, ‘

‘But Mommy, he just hugged us tight ‘

And said he had to go.

He said someday we’d understand

‘And told us not to fuss, ‘

‘And he said to tell you, Mommy, ‘

‘He’s watching over us.’

The mother knew without a doubt

‘That what they spoke was true, ‘

‘For she recalled their dad’s last words, ‘ ‘ I will watch over you.’

The firemen’s notes could not explain

‘The twisted, mangled car, ‘

And how the three of them escaped

Without a single scar.

‘But on the cop’s report was scribed, ‘

‘In print so very fine, ‘

An angel walked the beat tonight on Highway 109.

‘The 7 Second Prayer, Just repeat this phrase and see how God moves.

‘Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless my

family, my home, my friends, and me. Amen. ‘

Pass this message to 7 people {EXCEPT YOU AND ME}.

You will receive a miracle tomorrow.

He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare.

This morning when the Lord opened a window to Heaven, He saw me, and

He asked: ‘My child, what is your greatest wish for today?’ I responded:

‘Lord please, take care of the person

who is reading this message, their family and their special friends.

They deserve it and I love them very much.

‘ The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginning,

but not its end.This message works on the day you receive it.

Let us see if it is true.

ANGELS EXIST but some times, since they don’t all have wings, we call them FRIENDS.

Pass this on to your true friends.

Something good will happen to you at 11:11 in the evening; something that you have been waiting to hear.

Do not break this prayer; send it to a minimum of 5 friends
