The Department of Defense isn’t telling us the whole story about Religious Freedom in the Military!
From Liberty Institute, 05/17/2013 –
There is an emerging pattern of abuse of religious freedom taking place within the U.S. military. This pattern has intensified under the Obama Administration, and its now reaching crisis level.
We’ve uncovered a series of disturbing instances in which our brave service men and women – the very people who fight for our freedoms – are having their First Amendment rights taken away.
How many times have you heard City Officials tell the citizens of Weatherford how much better off they are with the socialized monopoly commonly called Weatherford Electric (WE)?
Is it because WE employees are more efficient than electricity providers who routinely compete in the marketplace?
How many times have you driven past a TXU work site and observed only one employee out of ten actually working?
This morning at about 9:30 am, I observed Weatherford Electric (WE) employees (see photos below) going about the business of looking out for the interests of Weatherford citizens. What would John Stossel say – “give me a break”! Is this not a disgusting insult to you – the tax payer who is not allowed to search the market for a more efficiently ran organization who can provide power at a reasonable rate?
Let’s reverse the rules between jails and nursing homes.
This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their rooms.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool, and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an outdoor exercise yard, with gardens.
Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V. radio, and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors, to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.
The “criminals” would get cold food, be left all alone, and unsupervised.
Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.
Live in a tiny room, and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Nursing Homes have been called “Living Museums”. Their occupants made our way of life possible. The abundant life we enjoy was made possible through their generosity and sacrifice. Chances are, you pass by a Nursing Home on your way to, or from work or from shopping. If you stop for a visit, I believe you will be shocked and saddened to learn how many residents haven’t had a visitor in weeks or months, if ever. You could learn first hand how “efficiently” government healthcare (Medicare & Medicaid) is administered.
It may be wise to learn all you can about Nursing Homes – before your kids choose one for you!
