I am just another patriot who loves their country.
“Nine of diamonds, nine of diamonds
Lord, that’s a lucky card.”
I am number nine out of ten children. I had one sister and eight brothers. 6 of my brothers served their country in the armed forces. Several made it a career. My father (WWII), his father (WWI), etc. clear back to the Revolutionary War (on both my father and my mother’s side of the family) fought for the freedoms of our nation. All of them patriots. I remember as a kid going to the Memorial services and watching with pride as they raised the flag. I remember how I felt (and still feel) every time I see a person in the uniform of our armed services. It warms my heart and I am proud to be an American.
I spent 20 years in the Trucking industry as a Safety Manager. I spent that time teaching adults the rules and regulations that the federal government has imposed on their industry. I was also the compliance officer and at times was obligated to enforce the regulations. So I am familiar with the legalese that our illustrious congress uses. It has served me well the past year and a half as I have tried to keep up with the barrage from Washington.
I am 58 yrs old and have 6 grown children (4 of my own and 2 step-daughters from a prior marriage). I also am the proud ‘gramma’ of 17 grandkids. It is because of them that I am now more involved than I have ever been and will never give up the watch. I was like a lot of people on this blog and others. I would do my homework on the candidates, vote my conscience, and go on about my business. NO more!
I do not get the chance to post as often as I would like, but I read every day, and I appreciate all the “Gang” here at Rosetta’s for your dedication to sounding the truth trumpet.
