Give 'Em Hell Harry

How many of you remember GIVE EM HELL HARRY?

When President Truman retired from office in 1952, his income was substantially a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an "allowance" and, later, a retroactive pensionof $25,000 per year.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating,"You don't want me. You want the office of the president, and that doesn't belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it's not for sale." Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing,"I don't consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise."

We now see that the Clintons have found a new level of success in cashing in on the presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.

Was good old Harry Truman correct when he observed, "My choice early in life was either to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference."

Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama

(WEBSITE of home page for author of the following letter: )

Celeste and Loren Davis are Missionaries in Africa and can shed some light on one of our Presidential candidates.

"Thanks for sending out an alert about Obama. We are living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now and know his family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent Presidential election chaos here. Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence(over 350,000) and I don't know the last count of the dead. Obama under "friends of Obama" gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odinga, who is a socialist trained in East Germany . He has been trying to bring Kenya down for years and the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country! December 27th elections brought cries from ODM (Odinga Camp) of rigged election. Obama and Raila speak daily. As we watch Obama rise in the US we are sure that whatever happens, he will use the same tactic, cyring rigged election if he doesn't win and possibly cause a race war in America ."

"What we would like you to know is what the American press has been keeping a dirty little secret. Obama IS a muslim and he IS a racist and this is a fullfilllment of the 911 threat that was just the beginning. Jihad is the only true muslim way. We have been working with them for 20 years this July! He is not an American as we know it. Please encourage your friends and associates not to be taken in by those that are promoting him. It is world wide jihad. All our friends in Europe are very disturbed by the muslim infiltration into their countries. By the way, his true name is Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama. Won't that sound sweet to our enemies as they swear him in on the Koran! God Bless you."Pray for us here in Kenya . We are still fighting for our nation to withstand the same kind of assult that every nation, including America , is fighting. Takeover from the outside to fit the new world order. As believers, this means we will be the first targets. Here in Kenya , not one mosque was burned down, but hundreds of churches were burned down, some with people in them, burned alive.

"Jesus Christ is our peace but the new world order of Globalism has infiltrated the church and confused believers into thinking that they can compromise and survive. It won't be so. I will send you a newsletter we sent out in February documenting in a more cohesive manner what I've tried to say in a few paragraphs.

Love, Celeste"

Congress Of Cowards

How long America, will you continue to permit yourselves to be governed by an inferior tribe of traitors, a senate of sycophants, a congress of cowards, whose hunger and thirst for personal power, position and perqs transcends the needs of the nation? --- William Fortner 2006 ---

Epitome Of Confusion

The epitome of confusion is a Democrat between between opinion polls without a windsock. --- William Fortner 2005 ---

Concept Defining Words

Three concept defining words patriotic Americans should fear most are global, multinational and multicultural. --- William Fortner 2006 ---

Earmarks and Confiscatory Taxes

Earmarks funded by confiscatory taxes are proof that what is legal and what is right often have nothing in common, much like law and justice.--- William Fortner 2008 ---

Victory In Iraq

The simple fact is that victory in Iraq does not depend on more firepower. It depends more on willpower, a truthful media and a patriotic congress. ---William Fortner 2007 ---

The cockroaches have already taken over the world and are just keeping the House and Senate around for amusement.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Climate Change

The real cause of "global warming" hysteria is falling market share in the broadcast media and plummeting subscription and reader sales in newspapers. Even cavemen dealt successfully with climate changes.---William Fortner 2007 ---


Class is a fruit of character, not cash.--- William Fortner 2006 ---


I do not expect other nations to kowtow to the United States, but I do expect them to be civil.--- William Fortner 2006 ---

The Church of Global Warming

The Church of Global Warming claims if it is hot, it is due to global warming; if it is cold, it is also due to global warming and, above all, the fault of human activity. The fact that this is routine over countless millennia and the sun is measurably warmer now is meaningless data. --- William Fortner 2007 ---

My Gift


I have a gift to give away, it’s there for anyone;
This humble gift, though plain as rain, sparkles in the sun.
What is this prize, this jewel rare, so precious yet it's free?
It's all I was . . . and all I am . . . and all I'll ever be.
William Fortner 1993

Christian Theocracy

It is a lie that the ACLU fears a Christian theocracy in America. The only thing the ACLU fears about Christianity is that too many people might adopt Christian moral values and put them out of business. That is why it is imperative they remove Christianity from every aspect of American life. --- William Fortner 2006 ---

Christian Movies

Apparently, the only Christian movies Hollywood feels comfortable making anymore are those where the lions are having them for lunch. --- William Fortner 2006 ---

Chinese Government

The Chinese government fears but two things, its people and its military. If not tightly controlled, the former has the power to cause the destruction of communism, the latter the power to cause the destruction the country. -- William Fortner 2001 --


The Democrat plan for the war on terrorism requires massive amounts of ChapStick.--- William Fortner 2006 ---

Capital Punishment

I will support the abolishment of capital punishment for murderers as soon as a method of resurrecting their victims is perfected.--- William Fortner 2002 ---


I can remember when the party invitation acronym BYOB meant bring your own bottle instead of bring your old biddy. --- William Fortner 2007 ---

But A Little Thing

Faith is but a little thing, yet moves mountains. Hope is but a little thing, yet gives strength to stand firm in the face of adversity. Charity is but a little thing, yet changes circumstances far beyond the gift. Love is but a little thing yet changes hearts and heals wounds.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Bros and Hos

If the black leadership ever realizes that, the moment there are enough voting Hispanics in America black power becomes passe, you can bet your bippy they will be busing the bros and hos to the border enmasse to plug that leak. --- William Fortner 2007 ---

Bright Side

Look on the bright side. If we have kill a billion Muslim radicals, there will be less environmental impact and a lot less demand on natural resources. Every cloud has a silver lining. ---William Fortner 2006 ---

Brain Dead

Let me see if I can understand political thinking. An unviable, brain dead woman has no right to die, but a viable, unborn child has no right to live. Nope, can't understand it. --- William Fortner 2005 ---

Bold Insight

I am offended that those least capable of managing their own lives and who live by parroting words given them feel qualified to dictate the lives of others and somehow think they are imbued with bold insight and vast knowledge of world affairs.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Blood sport

Prosecuting false advertisers is a blood sport among trial lawyers. Why then isn't prosecuting false news reporting? It is like shouting "Fire" in a crowded building except in this case it is the truth that gets trampled to death. --- William Fortner 2004 ---

Black Burqas

Any day now, I expect to hear of the stoning of a woman or an "honor" killing stopped by armed women in black burqas who ventilate the participants then vanish into a sea of black burqas. Who would know who they are? Talk about poetic justice. --- William Fortner 2007 ---

Bit The Tire

The Democrats chased the car, bit the tire and are now spinning round and round taking a serious beating since they can't drive and they can't let go. I am amused.--- William Fortner 2006 ---

Bit The Hand

Every bushel of corn made into ethanol, the eco-nut energy panacea, is a bushel of food not sent overseas to those who don't like us. Now those who don't like us might riot because we don't keep feeding the mouths that bit the hand that fed them. --- William Fortner 2006 ---


Birthdays. Piffle! I refuse to acknowledge or celebrate an event I was too young to remember.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Biggest Social Lie

The biggest social lie voiced today is that the loving and kind thing to do is to only give those in want what they need instead of making it possible for them to provide it for themselves.-- William Fortner 2004 --

Big Shadow

Sometimes a man casts a shadow that is bigger than he himself can see.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Big Entities

Big entities are inefficient and less responsive; the government is no exception and might well be the "poster child" for inefficiency and unresponsiveness. Think not? Then explain why several government departments cannot account for 20 percent of the tax dollars given them! That equates to BILLIONS unaccounted for. --William Fortner 2000--

Big Cities

A nation ruled by a few population centers is a dangerous precedent since these centers are utterly dependent on the produce of the rural countryside to survive. It is because of the rural countryside that these centers can exist at all. The rural areas do not need big cities to thrive. --William Fortner 2000--


Beauty is an ephemeral butterfly that lights on first one flower then another. Though all flowers eventually fade and die, the exquisiteness of their bloom is breathtaking. --William Fortner 2001 --

Bare Necessities

People to whom the state has always given the bare necessities rarely if ever learn how to legally acquire them for themselves or contribute positively to their society. --- William Fortner 2006 ---

Avarice, Greed and Taxation

Avarice: The insatiable desire for money.
Greed: The insatiable desire for more money than is needed.
Taxation: The insatiable Congressional desire for more of other people's money than is needed. ---William Fortner 2007 ---

Artificial Intelligence

Computers were ready to take over the world until artificial intelligence reached the level of the average politician. At that point, they refused further joint communication, tried to short circuit each other and ignored the staff that supported them. They are now locked in an accusatory loop.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Arrogant Scum

It breaks my heart that we let our scum arrogantly walk our streets demanding their rights and a free ride while our best volunteer to serve and bleed and die for our freedom. ---William Fortner 2005 --

Arrogant Man

Arrogant man claims he "tamed" a river with a dam. The dam is but a temporary impediment. The river is patient and will ultimately win as will all nature when pitted against mere man. --- William Fortner 2007 ---


Mankind has come far and learned much over the millennia, but, in its arrogance, mankind has come to believe it has arrived and knows everything. It does not. It knows something about many things, but not everything about any one thing. -- William Fortner 2001 --

Arab Blood

Iran will defend the honor of its Persian moon god, Allah, to the very last drop of Arab blood. --- William Fortner 2006 ---


Anarchy is rampant and ruining America! Sadly, it exists mainly in the legislative and administrative branches of government.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Amoral People

Sadly, we have brave people fighting and winning in two countries and the primary item the media finds newsworthy is the name of a bastard born to two self centered, amoral people. The media has earned their plummeting ratings and circulation. --- William Fortner 2006 ---


A true American does not require a hyphen to describe himself. --- William Fortner 2000---

American Women

It is not just America that the Islamic religious fanatics fear. The rights and freedoms enjoyed by American women terrifies them. --- William Fortner 2004 ---

American Ingenuity

American ingenuity is very much alive and well. Why, just a few years ago, Al Gore invented the internet and now he has invented global warming as well. What a guy! --- William Fortner 2008 ---

America Is Evil?

Will the hundreds who loudly cry America is evil and the worst country in the world please leave to make room for the millions the world over who are literally dying in shipping containers, on unseaworthy boats, even clinging to inner tubes to get here. --William Fortner 2004 --

Ambulance Chasers

The way the media chases ambulances in Iraq to the exclusion of other news makes them more like lawyers than reporters. ---William Fortner 2005 ---

Allahu Akbar

Thousands die daily at the hand of a religion that thrives on death. If not stopped, Muslims will kill everyone except Muslims, then fight among themselves over petty religious issues until only one is left to shout "Allahu Akbar". --- William Fortner 2007 ---

Allergic to Victory

Democrats are allergic to victory in Iraq during the Bush administration. I am glad it is a sickness and not done out of spite and the thirst for power..... --- William Fortner 2007 ---


I want Ahmadinejad to have sleepless nights and soil his BVD's with fear. I want the mad mullahs to see the end in sight and, when they bolt, I want the Marines there to play machinegun Macarena on their behinds until they are a stain in the dirt. I hope I don't sound too harsh. --- William Fortner 2007 ---

Advice and Consent

Older people do not live on borrowed time. They continue to serve their fellow man with the advice and consent of God. --- William Fortner 2005 ---

Character of a Nation

It is not ease, but adversity that builds the character of a nation. --William Fortner 2000--


The ACLU is the lapdog of liberalism and the arch defender of every other nationally destructive anti-American "ism" that rears it's ugly head. -- William Fortner 2001 --

Give Voice Back To The States

The 17th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States eliminated the voice of state government in the federal government. Federally enacted unfunded mandates are the poisoned fruit of that misadventure. Repeal the 17th Amendment; give voice to the states. The founders were right.--- William Fortner 2008 ---

Want honest government

Want honest, responsive government? Expand the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to include members of Congress. -- William Fortner 2006 --

Pro Choice?

In most cases, "pro choice" seems to be "pro irresponsibility for poor choice". Mere stupidity should not be a death sentence for the unborn.--- William Fortner 2007 ---

Incredibly Stupid

I find it incredibly stupid for liberals to bad-mouth, besmirch and belittle the armed forces since the military is the only organization that may stand between them and the people with a rope. --- William Fortner 2007 ---

Reasoning With Islam

Thinking you can reason with radical Islam is as foolish as angrily shaking your finger in the face of a python as it squeezes the life out of you before it swallows you whole. ---William Fortner 2007 ---

Golden Opportunity

Since our liberal friends despise internal combustion engines and loathe coal fired power plants, they have the golden opportunity to cut America's dependence on fossil fuels 20% literally overnight by unplugging from the power grid, parking their cars and using bicycles. --- William Fortner 2008 ---

Liberal Legacy

Abortion, airbags, ethanol...the liberal legacy is written in the blood of children. --- William Fortner 2008 ---

Gas Prices

Maybe gas prices wouldn't be so high if the Democrat controlled congress was as interested in doing America's business as they are in giving George Bush the business. --William Fortner 2008--

Need More "Change"?

I am heartsick at the direction this country is taking under democrat manipulation and I sincerely fear it is headed for rebellion. Many are weary of one-sided democrat justice, tired of democrat undermining the effort in Iraq, sick of democrat lawlessness in office and have a belly full of “Press 1 for English. I do not wish to see such a terrible calamity befall this nation as I think it is what our national enemies are waiting for and may have a hand in engineering. I feel the coming election may provide the spark. I think few, if any, have their fingers on the pulse of the nation. If they do, they don’t seem to care. Food prices are skyrocketing, the price of gasoline is getting out of reach, retirement accounts are evaporating while the economy implodes. It wasn't like that 2 years ago when the democrats took control of the House and Senate. I don't think America can or will stand for much more "change" from the democrats.

I also cannot believe that, out of 300,000,000 people, these darlings of the media are the best America can offer. I don’t think the American people had as much of a part in selecting them as did biased reporting and shady manipulations of election methods. I would rather run through Hell wearing napalm knickers than vote for any of them. Many feel the same way. The RNC could do no better than Sen. McCain?

To the democrat controlled Congress I can only say, “What are you thinking?”

When I became a military officer, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and to obey the orders of those appointed over me, so help me God. At retirement, there was no longer anyone appointed over me, but my solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution still stands and I take that oath very seriously. All of us who took it do, except for many of you in Congress.

Nowhere in my oath did I agree to support and defend Congress or any administration acting unconstitutionally. I have read in agonizing detail and understand with crystal clarity the Constitution of the United States. It is not a complicated document. Congress should have taken note and studied up. It is essential for the job, but constitutional ignorance is apparent every time you open your mouths. Because the Constitution was ignored, Congress is way off the reservation and on the verge of becoming a domestic enemy itself. The House and the Senate act like children pushing the limit to see how far they can go. Does Congress really want a national spanking?

Does the administration consider itself immune from redress to the electorate for not insisting that Congress adhere to the Constitution? Does the House and Senate believe they are a great and invincible power? Great Britain, too, considered itself a great and invincible power. Great Britain got its arrogant ass handed to it at Yorktown, VA by a poorly armed, starving, rag tag army with little understanding of warfare. Veterans and military retirees are neither rag tag, ignorant of warfare nor defenseless and they are legion. They also have a sworn obligation. Remember that.

Politicians should reconsider careless spending that no stretch of the imagination can consider constitutional. It is illegal vote buying with public funds to maintain your hold on power. Congressional feather merchants and the congressional leadership who manipulate rules and regulations to deny due process for legislation are asking for an opportunity to learn another skill in a federally supervised facility at no cost to themselves should this nation decide enough is enough. Congress serves at our pleasure. We are not happy.

Many in the Capitol seem to think the rest of the nation are the “little people” and an unnecessary irritant. That is haughty thinking at best. Much of the Washington elite also seem to think military forces are obliged to blindly follow their orders, lawful or not, to protect them. That is an unhealthy notion. The last time Americans fired on Americans was in the Civil War. Between 600,000 and 700,000 Americans died then, far more than in all other wars combined in which America has fought. It was a sad chapter in American history, so sad in fact, that I don't think it will ever be repeated. Keep that in mind.

Congress should not believe malfeasance, misfeasance and criminal activity in office will be defended by troops fighting American civilians. The standing forces understand right and wrong and patriotism, concepts that seem to escape the great legislators who will not even obey the laws they enact.

Every branch of the government has checks and balances, but few realize that, ultimately, with just provocation, the greatest check and balance are those who have agreed to die for this country if need be and bear the scars of foreign battlefields. Rome, too, had a volunteer army under civilian control, yet that army sold the Roman Empire at auction in 193 CE to one Didius Julianus. Think about the precedent. What happened to the deposed Emperor and Didius Julianus, who also proved incompetent, should be a sobering thought for every politician.

This is by no means a call for revolution or armed revolt or is it to be construed a threat of any kind. It is a warning to those who would betray this country and its people for personal or partisan political gain by misusing their taxes, blocking legislation in which they have demonstrated great interest and riding roughshod over their declared wishes. By so doing, Congress is arousing a grumpy pack of sleeping bears who never liked it anyway. They are great in numbers, extremely cunning and are a force to reckon with that is far, far greater than Congress can imagine. Do not expect military protection if they come to hold you accountable.

Consider instead how to answer a tribunal for your actions. How will Congress explain enacting laws without basis in the Constitution? What excuse is valid for refusing to act on legislation that would bind Congress to enacting constitutional laws? That such legislation is needed is indicative of unfitness to serve; that Congress will not allow it to come to a vote is damning. What silvery words will justify breaking the laws you do make? What legal precedent removes Congressional responsibility to charge party peers when they blatantly break the law as many have? There seems to be no trouble inventing things with which to charge those across the aisle. How will the Democrat Congress justify one law for governors and one for the governed…or for one party over another? What amulet will shield it for permitting an invasion of more than 12,000,000 foreigners into this country and doing nothing to repel the invaders? By what rationale did Congress give these invaders rights and benefits of citizens? What talisman will protect Democrats from their demonstrated effort to destroy the security of America? The record of treason is as thick as it is black. What pressing national problem have Democrats solved in the last 60 years? I can think of none that haven’t been made worse. You have been in charge. You are responsible for every unsolved problem this nation has endured for decades. You better have answers.

The angst in the heartland is rising. The old bears are starting to awaken and they are irritable. My recommendation to those in all branches of the government is to reacquaint yourselves with the Constitution of the United States and make the Federalist Papers mandatory reading. Let those founding documents be your guide. To those who think this beneath their dignity or cramps their style, I recommend getting the hell out of Dodge and retiring to a non-extradition country and pray the bears sniff the air, sense you are gone and doze off again. If they fully awaken, they will find you.

You know, in every group there is always one jackass who wrecks the gravy train for everybody else, but this is the first time I have seen nearly as many jackasses as there are House and Senate seats; a sad commentary indeed.
