This thread isn't about politics, but about a man who was my father, my mentor, a role model....

and a man of his word. It was 17 years ago on March 3, 2002, while I was delivering a load in California. My mother called me and said that my father had taken a turn for the worst and his kidneys were starting to fail. A couple of hours later, he was gone. I had just left home a couple of days prior. I was not home when he passed away. It is something that I regret to this day. When I left a couple of days prior, he was seemingly getting better.

He taught me so much about life, how to treat others with respect, how find a solution rather than a bigger problem. He was hard on me and my siblings, sometimes to hard. But as I look back, he was forcing us to see the beauty in life. No, he wasn't there all the time, but he was a truck driver trying make a living for his wife and 9 children. He made no excuses, never blamed others and always looked out for others with a helping hand if he could, even if it was a total stranger.

I called him Dad, for a reason. I am and will always be proud to have been one of his children and youngest son. I followed in his footstep driving a truck for a living. I wear his pride in my heart.

Dad, I miss you and know you are always watching over me and the rest of our family.

Thank you letting me share this with everyone.

I caught a couple of seconds of Trump's speech at CPAC!

To me, he looked sick? Paler then normal and looked like he was fighting himself to speak in complete sentences! But the cowards were
buying every word he was spouting out! Pathetic way of expressing leadership!

Hey Mark Meadows! You say that you don't have a...

racial bone in your body? Well, your mouth and mind sure is! Your PATHETIC idiotic apology falls flat!

Ugh! Even when Trump family lie, they lie with a bigger lie to cover another lie!

That must be quite the family gathering! All lies! What a PATHETIC family!

In another thread someone asked about Chris Matthews, "where has he gone"?

I am not sure, but I think MSNBC needs a total change. They have some good shows with good people, but they have been there for too long! It is like listening to Rush Limbaugh(which I don't), he talks and talks and talks! This is what is happening at MSNBC, the host(not all of them) talk over their guest and won't let the guest finish speaking. I know I could not do what they do and smart enough to ask the hard questions, but I can't listen to their shows anymore. I feel the same about CNN anymore, too! I think every couple of years, these outlets needs bring in new people, just so we don't get burned out with the same thing over and over. I know ratings and sponsors are what keep these shows going, but in the end, I am burned out listening to them!

Wait for it?

A 3rd summit, but here in the states and in the White House? Yikes? And Putin will be there too! It will be the UnPutin-Idiottraitor Summit!

The only one who has succeed from any Trump failures is Putin!

Trump is destroying everything Putin wanted do himself!

I learned something about the GOP yesterday!

They are absolute idiots when it comes to their involvement in any hearings! They come unprepared and yell a lot!

A loser, a fake, a moron, a total disaster!

Trump was played by Kim Jung Un and Kim Jung Un got what he wanted! A another stage spotlight in front of the world! Trump is a child in a man's world! He is going to blame everyone, but he will not take any responsibility for the failure no "art of the deal"! Trump's play on words is making a fool in front of the world once again! And this was while he was overseas, but meanwhile here in the states. Trump has bigger problems to "deal" with! This whole presidency is embarrassing and total disaster! The new book from Trump will be "How to be a Total Failure"! One thing that I am will worried about now? Where will Trump pick a fight or start a war with? He is coming home with his tail between his legs and will want to get his base riled up, so he can save face.

So, the very GOP committee say this is a waste of time?

How convenient they forget they spent a whole 6 months in a investigation on Hillary's emails! Pathetic!

About imanamerican63

I am just someone who believes in treating others with respect and give those who need help a hand. I don't like it when other peolple think they are better than me. I feel God made us all the same. I know there are different types of people, just like democrates and republicans, but I do think that the republicans use their platform to show they are better than us. I am a catholic, who is against abortion, but know I that can not tell a woman what she can do or not do. I am for gun rights, but against guns that can shoot 4 or more rounds at once. I live life as it comes, but always look to make it better for tomorrow.
