Pray for Fred

I feel sad today. My best friend, or even more so my self adopted brother just 52 years of age had a stroke yesterday. He is in Michigan, and I am in Florida trying to put together all what just happened in the past 24 hours. It all seems like a whirl wind, a bad dream that you don't want to believe. The stories of Fred keep rolling in over the phone like a strange montage collage of the twilight zone.

You see things like this are not suppose to happen to guys that are physically fit and at such an early age.

Fred always wanted to be rich, and he tried many ways to achieve his dream. The problem was he was to nice, to honest, and couldn't be corrupted in his endeavours.
If you were cold he would give his jacket to you. I you were hungry he would feed you. if you needed some money he would give some to you with no questions asked. I know of two businesses today that would not exist if it weren't not for his generosity. People have gotten there homes and restaurants on loans from Fred that were never paid back. There were also Christmas gifts, and airline tickets that were never paid back. The thing was Fred loaned money on the idea that it would probably never be paid back anyway, To Fred, friends and family are more important to him money.

When somebody says don't worry I'll be there for you, he was. By shoveling snow, mowing lawn, fixing the neighbors car, raking leaves, moving, lifting, what ever it took to make someone else's day better.

But the best part of Fred is, listening, making you feel good and believing in yourself. I have known Fred for the 48 years out my 50 years of age, and he has never given up on me. I owe allot of what I am, and who I am because of you buddy.

Fred, I just want to say you are rich. Maybe not in monetary gains, but I don't know anyone else who is far more richer than you, in Christian Spiritual gains. People love you, your family loves you, and I love you, but most of all God really loves you.

People please pray for Fred to heal his stroke.


Your Brother Lee

Christmas, Faith, and Love

It's Christmas morning the day the world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. Some people say that this day is really not his birthday, it's just a symbolic day of celebration. I disagree, for the simple fact of faith. You see December 25th is the day the majority of the Christian world have set aside in faith to celebrate his birth. This day the world celebrates the gift of unconditional love. The day our Lord God has sent his only begotten son to save all his children from despair, in the name of love.
Remember we are a all family created as one, from the heart of God.
Have faith, and Merry Christmas.

Create American Jobs Now!

We as Americans have to stand by our fellow citizens. The time is now to stop deleting the jobs we have. This is done by creating, and recreating employment for our own people in our country.
1. Don't let the politicians make the decision any more. They are only looking out for themselves, and lining there own pockets. Remember the best government is no government at all. We have to wise up and take our own country back, and put it into our own hands once again.
2. Job creations for thousands of people can be very simple, as long as we treat our countries brother and sisters as family. Here are a few examples. There are over 20,000 gas stations in America that are self service. If we pay just 3 cents more per gallon for pump attendants it would create 80,000 new full, and part time jobs. There are a few states that mandate this already, and it works fantastic.
If Wal-Mart, Grocery Stores, and the other large shopping facilities stop the all the self service lines. We pay just 3 cents per bag checked, this would create another 80,000 thousand jobs.
Theses two changes in our life would cost us only about 1 dollar a month to feed 160,000 people. I find it very hard to believe that we as a human race have that much greed built up inside us, not to make this happen.
3. Stop bringing in foreign workers to do the jobs that us American citizens can do.
Here are a some examples of that: Textile working, Crop picking, Construction. There are over 150,000 of theses jobs alone that foreigners are doing in the U.S. Charity begins at home first. The two reason these three jobs don't exist for us Americans is because we are either to lazy to do the jobs, or the employers of these jobs hire the foreign workers at a poverty level of pay so they can line there own pockets. Just by changing this would cost us only about 50 cents a month.
4. The politician need to stop sending our jobs over seas and get rid of the NAFTA agreement. The NAFTA agreement was made to create more revenue for the stock holders, and cheaper goods for the American public. This never happened.
The CEO's and Major Stock Holders lined there pockets with million dollar bonuses. I ask you, who are theses people, the CEO's, and Major Stock holders of these companies. The Answer is: American Politicians. That is why we Americans have stupidly spent 3 trillion dollars repairing all the companies that they had so greedily raped. This is so they can keep lining there own pockets with ill gotten gains. Three trillion dollars equals out to approximately $3000 dollars for every man woman and child in America. So I ask you, wouldn't our country be more stimulated if every American got $3000 dollars. It would made for one helluva' Christmas wouldn't it! The sad thing is we lost our great trade jobs that no one in the world did better than us, until recently, ask Japan. I warn you you if this keeps up, we are going to be a third world country fast! The time is now to stand up to our Politicians and take back our country!
Just a quick note: Over %50 of our Politicians make over $1,000,000 million dollars a year!
People we have a crisis on our hands.
