My First Post In My First Blog

I never thought I would be creating a blog but here it is. To anyone that takes the time to read this let me explain what prompted me to create a blog. Oh first let me explain my saying and what it means for those non World of Warcraft players. Go to Youtube and search for Leroy Jenkins. Watch the video. After you watch him get his team killed and they all basically curse him out he can't think of anything else to say so he says simply "At Least I Got Chicken" That my friends is a great philosophy. He totally screwed up and made a mess but on the bright side he has the food he left to make. He got his chicken. No I'm not crazy, I don't do drugs and I don't drink. I just maybe look at things a little differently. I am just a regular every day guy going through a regular everyday life. For years I payed very little attention to politics and what our leaders were doing in Washington. Well during about the last 10 years I have become more and more interested in what is going on in the world. Mainly because being in the military alot of it affected me. I had friends that were going into harms way and as I watched what politicians were doing on military issues I started watching what they did on other issues. I started not just believing what I heard on TV but started doing some research. Getting my news from other not so main stream people like Hannity, Limbaugh, Bortz, etc. etc. Now just like I did with the news I didn't and still don't just believe what they say. If something peaks my interest I try to get several different angles on it and form my own opinion. Thus my reason for starting a blog.
I don't know if anyone will bother to read what I have to write but I look at it as a way of venting and sharing. Maybe what I say and how I say it will make someone look at something differently. Maybe someone will learn something they don't already know. Maybe my comments will be scorned or slammed by trolls but either way I'm gonna try out this blogging thing and see what happens.
I just feel so frustrated by what I see going on in our country right now that I have to say something to anyone that will listen. Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and all the other far left liberals are taking this country down a path that I believe will lead to ruin. Our country is headed so far from what the founding fathers intended. I know many democrats and very few of them have the socialist mindset that the above mentioned people do. Most of the democrats I know are hard working people that lead simple conservative lives. Steel mill workers, auto workers, mechanics, men that make toner. They have listened to the promises of our leaders and the coaching of some of their union officials and cast a well meaning vote. Only to discover that the people they have put in office are nothing like what they seemed.
The president, congress and senate have taken it upon themselves to pass what they want and do what they want. They think they know whats good for us without asking us. If they do ask they don't pay attention to the answer if its not what they want to hear. They want to "take care of us". Well by God I don't need taken care of. And as for your opinion senator or were not elected to have an opinion. You were elected to express my opinion. The opinion of the voters is what you voice. The only portion of your voice that can echo your opinion is one votes worth. Come November your going to see how much your opinion means when you find yourself voted out of office.
Wow that felt good. Not sure if anyone else will read this but if you are. Thanks for letting me vent. I will close my first post on my first blog with an offering of prayer for my brothers and sisters on the sea and on lands far away keeping us safe.


  1. Hey Chicken,

    Let me first say, that was one hell of a good first post, and I echo your prayers for the brave service men and women who are in harms way giving us the freedom to banter back and forth on these blogs!

    You as many others have taken that important first step toward retrieveing our country from the brink of collapse!

    Please stop by The Born Again Americans when you get the chance and see what a couple of old twin brothers have to say about what's going on!

  2. Hi There, our friend Denise...aka B & G fan, wrote a post about you on here blog today!
    Congrats on your first post. I'm sure you'll get lots of readers and followers! We all start out with our lsts posts.....I wasn't even very political two years ago. Now, when I see what Obama, Reid, Pelousy and all the traitors are doing to America, I want to scream (well I do, at the TV whenever one of them comes on).

    Millions of us feel the same way as you. You articulated it very well.
    Welcome to the fun! Follow people that follow you, comment around, don't feed the trolls (they never listen and it just gives them a forum - that's why DELETE buttons were invented). And you'll be on your way to blogging fame in no time ;-) Good Luck and welcome.
