Islam, Islamists And Muslims, What You May Not Know!

The Patriot’s Editorial:

It’s often confusing trying to understand the difference between Islam, Islamists and Muslims based on how they are presented and referred to in various articles and the media. As someone who lived and worked in two Muslim countries and understands their religious mindset, I still find it difficult to determine exactly what we are being told and why. The simple fact is: There is only ‘one’ difference between all Muslims, the language they speak (based on their country of origin). That’s it! They all follow the same religion, Islam. Read More »

The Ten Commandments Were Written In Stone

The Patriot’s Editorial:

Until I created a meme last week to make a point about the Second Amendment, I had never considered the significance of why God had written the Ten Commandments in ‘stone’. The more I thought about it, the more it intrigued me and sparked my interest. Papyrus paper was widely used in Egypt for writing and recording information and the Israelites escaping from Egypt would have known that. God could have easily told Moses to write the commandments on papyrus, but he didn’t. Why was that? Read More »

The Patriot’s Editorial:

All of us have heard the saying: ‘One man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ and that is certainly true when it comes to ‘Crumbs’! Nothing could have put this into perspective more than the recent political statement regarding company bonuses immediately following the tax cut. So, I thought it might be enlightening to examine this ‘junk versus treasure’ comment to determine what was really said and why. Read More »

Toxic Male Masculinity! Is It Contagious?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

When I first heard about this a couple of months ago, I couldn’t believe my ears. It’s difficult to fathom the reality and seriousness of what I’ve been reading. The left is claiming Toxic Male Masculinity is a disease and must be eradicated with great haste. Wow, really? Do I have it? Read More »

Gun/Weapon Education Versus Misunderstanding

The Patriot’s Editorial:

I recently read a Facebook post that was asking why do we need semi-automatic and automatic weapons. Well, the first thing we need is some education on the difference between those two types of weapons. Individuals that own and love guns as I do, know and understand the difference. There are three types of weapons and I will explain each one and show how they actually operate and why some are legal to own and others are not. Read More »

Distasteful Behavior: What’s in a Word or Words?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

In this ‘It’s All About Me’ world we live in, people believe they have the right to say whatever comes to mind. That includes: saying/writing anything to hurt, impugn or punish someone they disagree with. After listening to it in ‘ad nauseam’ for the paste couple of years, I thought I would try to make some sense of it. Read More »

Challenges of Draining the………………What?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

What does ‘Draining The Swamp’ actually entail? That seems to be the million dollar question simply because new revelations about the depth and magnitude of problems in Washington seem to grow exponentially by the hour. Trying to make sense of this, and figure out what swamp draining involves, has proven to be a convoluted mess and thus, difficult to sort out. Like the ecosystem, many things are going on at once and all have to be addressed and corrected before all negative ‘cause and effect’ issues are eliminated. So, you can not just fix one thing without fixing something else. The obstacles to ‘Draining the Swamp’ are (but not limited to): Read More »

Our Country Is Under Siege

The Patriot’s Editorial:

Today, marks one of the lowest points in this country’s history. I’m witnessing our Republic be replaced with ‘Absolutism’, our Congress reduced to a mere ravel and our Constitution systematically shredded. To many, a government shutdown doesn’t mean much. Life will go on as usual and they will experience little (if any) ill-affect by it. Much as was the case during the obama years. But for others and for various reasons, they will be impacted deeply. Why does it have to be this way and what good can be gained by it for us as individuals, a people and nation? Read More »

Is ‘Drain The Swamp’ Working?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

Much has been said and written about ‘Making America Great Again’ and ‘Draining The Swamp’! Like many of you, I assumed President Trump’s initiative would be limited to eliminating over-reach regulations, passing new laws and changing mindsets. Little did anyone realize the impact those efforts would have peripherally after just one year. The unforeseen consequences we are beginning to witness are both disturbing and surprising a lot of people. Read More »

Hillary’s California Primary Dilemma

As I continue to watch the drama of the Democrat primary unfold in California, I asked myself, ‘what if Bernie actually beats Hillary next Tuesday’? Granted, she has managed to harness the majority of the ‘super delegates’ and will have the votes necessary to outright win the nomination, but will her party’s detractors (those that do not want her), combined with the Bernie supporters, derail her aspirations for the nomination, once again. To compound the party’s woes, it is anybody’s guess what will come out or be leaked regarding Hillary’s email and Benghazi problems? Your thoughts?

Freightening Prediction For America

I received this video from a friend yesterday and found it to be so profound and telling, I feel the urgent need to share it. It is not political! The information presented comes straight from the source and is most credible. This is from a CPAC panel discussion on March 3, 2016, by Mr. Paul Weston.

Hi, This takes a little more time to listen to than the average email but well worth it for the information imparted. And, the problem with demographics and political correctness.

Memorial Day – Thoughts and Remembrance – Click Title to Read

Memorial Day provides us the opportunity to solemnly remember and say thank you to all who have sacrificed and served. Without exception, I think back to the days my family members (father, uncles, nephews and cousins), friends and myself were in harms way and the sacrifices made to preserve the freedoms of the people of this great land.

I firmly believe it should be mandatory for every American to watch the movies ‘D-Day’ and ‘We Were Soldiers’. By doing so, it would provide an understanding of what is required to preserve the freedoms, so many today, are willingly giving away by turning a deaf ear and blind eye as their freedoms are being eroded and stripped away!

As we honor the soldiers, airmen and sailors (men and women), we must never forget to pay tribute to the spouses who stayed behind, always alone and afraid and forced to raise their families under the most financially and mentally challenging conditions. Beverly was a Squadron Commander’s wife and was responsible for providing assistance, guidance and referrals to 154 wives that remained behind, some just barely out of high school. Some of the stories she tells of what she was confronted with are heart-wrenching. Unfortunately, these hardships seldom make the news or receive the recognition they so rightfully deserve. Over the centuries, it has taken them all to make America GREAT!

God Bless America! Please, fly your flags proudly this weekend!

Homemade Ice Cream Tips – Click on Title for Recipe

Making homemade ice cream at our house is a weekly event throughout the summer and Sunday will be our first freezer of the season. If interested, here is our recipe with some helpful hints.

Beverly’s Ice Cream Recipe

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

4 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 quarts of whole milk
1 can evaporated milk

Combine eggs, whipping cream, sugar salt and vanilla in bowl and mix thoroughly with mixer. Pour into can, add evaporated milk and stir well. Add whole milk to fill line on can and stir. Makes four quarts. (A four quart freezer requires 1 1/2 bags of ice)

1- You can add puréed banana’s, peaches, strawberries, etc. prior to adding the whole milk. Purée in a blender reduces the bulk and heaviness of the additives. This is helpful because as it freezes, it will settle in the bottle of the can and also freezes to the paddles.
2- The original recipe called for 2 cans condensed milk (Eagle Brand), but it made it way too rich, so we opted for one can of evaporated milk.
3- You can freeze the remaining 1/2 pint whipping cream to use next time.

1- Mix up and place can in refrigerator for an hour or so until it is cold. By doing so, it reduces the time it will take to harden in the freezer.
2- Cover the top of the freezer with a bath towel once ice and ice cream salt has been added. Be sure to leave the motor cooling vents uncovered. Check ice level and drain hole periodically. Add ice and salt as necessary and stick your finger in the drain hole to ensure it stays open. The towel enables it to retain the cold and freeze faster.
3- When the freezer stops, turn off switch or unplug, remove the towel and the top couple of inches of ice, life up the can 4-5 inches and remove the lid. Slowly lift the paddle out, using a spoon, remove the ice cream in the paddle. Once done, smooth out, replace the lid and immediately place in the freezer (refrigerator) and let sit for a couple of hours so the soft ice cream can firm up. Leaving the paddle in causes a scooping nightmare.
4- I find it much more convenient to place the ice cream freezer in the kitchen sink to make it. When done, I pour the salty ice/water down the non-garbage disposal side of the drain. Rinse and put away for the next time.
