I received this via an email this afternoon. Excellent letter in my opinion.

By Jared Law (Founder, The 9.12 Project Network) | December 28th, 2010

House Republicans have a sacred responsibility to taxpayers, Tea Partiers/Conservative Republicans (who unquestionably handed them their victories in November), and to every American, whether they agree with us or not, to begin fulfilling their Constitutional duty to limit the size of government, to reduce federal taxation and spending to match the original intent of the Constitution of the United States of America, which document I believe to be inspired by God himself.

Republicans and independents, those of us who kicked Nancy Pelosi and her co-conspirators out of their leadership positions (for betraying the trust the American people mistakenly placed in them in 2008)…WE know what’s coming, WE know what must be done, and if the House Republicans don’t begin moving in this direction, IMMEDIATELY, they’ll have nobody to blame but themselves for a third party or total irrelevance, as the Whigs also did to themselves long ago. I am not a fan of the idea of a third party, but Republicans REALLY, REALLY need to do what we’ve asked them to do if they expect to remain in office, much less earn an expanded majority in the House, and control of the U.S. Senate, and the Presidency in 2012, or any of the above.

America is awake. We know what ‘Progressives’ are, and that they are a cancer on America, they infest both parties, and they are a cancer which must be removed ASAP. We must undo the damage they’ve done, or America will be nothing but a tragic footnote in the history of the world. America is literally fighting for our life, and after Nancy Pelosi & co. pumped America full of toxic progressive policies while America was under the knife, we’re at the brink, right at the razor’s edge.

You must be extremely careful, but you MUST eliminate the destructive ‘progressive’ policies, legislation, and government spending which has brought America to her knees, and laid her low on the operating table of the surgical center. Her life is in your hands. DO NOT FAIL AMERICA! We’re watching you like hawks. Scratch that…Eagles. Millions of Bald Eagles with attitudes.

Like the rest of the Tea Party/9.12 Project/Freedom movement, I love America with every fiber of my being. I am so incredibly grateful to be an American, and thankfully, I woke up years ago, and was educated by myself and others, over the past few years (especially the past 22 months), so that like most Tea Partiers, I know of what I speak. While I am not perfect, nor am I a lawyer, not a Senator or Congressman, and certainly not a politician (in fact, perhaps FOR this reason), I have studied the Constitution and the Principles of Freedom enshrined therein, so I know what my rights are. I know what natural rights and natural law is. I understand the laws of nature and of Nature’s God. We all do.

The whole Tea Party /9.12 Project movement has been studying, self-educating, through books, seminars, videos, and discussion. We know what we want. And the first priority of the mandate we handed to House Republicans on November 2nd, 2010, is to END THE GROWTH OF FEDERAL SPENDING IMMEDIATELY, and END DEFICIT SPENDING ASAP. The great decline of the wasteful, unconstitutional spending by the federal government MUST FINALLY BEGIN!

In addition to this reality, we must also begin the final repayment of America’s national debt. We know the true number is many times the $13.9 Trillion that is officially being reported. National Debt interest payments in FY2010 were about $164 BILLION DOLLARS. That’s a bit absurd, don’t you think? Why is the most powerful, successful nation on earth the largest debtor nation? This is absolutely unsustainable, and you know it. Sadly, for Americans, the window of opportunity to pay it off in a RELATIVELY painless fashion has passed. It’s going to be painful, but it must be done. The time for easy solutions is long gone, and the 111th Congress made your job indescribably more difficult. And if you fail, they’ll blame you, and spend $Billions convincing America it’s your fault. Only the Tea Party MOVEMENT (not individual Tea Party leaders, groups, etc.) can and WILL defend you, assuming you do the right thing.

Now we realize you don’t have all the power you need to get everything done this first year, but don’t think you can let off or compromise. You have a sacred duty, and if you fail to honor your duty, you will not only be thrown out of office, but your name will become a hiss and a byword. Nancy Pelosi has destroyed her name among honest, tax-paying Americans. Now it’s your turn to either shine or self-destruct! Show us what you’re made of, Republicans! We have granted you the power of the purse; use it to the fullest extent possible so we can praise, defend, and re-elect you in 2012, with an expanded majority in the House, and a Majority in the Senate, not to mention the Presidency!

If you fail to honor the Principles of Freedom which are enshrined in the Constitution of the United States of America, if you ignore us, if you fail to honor your oath of office, in which you will “solemnly swear (or affirm)” that you will “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…” and that you “will well faithfully discharge the duties of the office” you are about to enter. So help you GOD…then you’d better pray for God’s help. Because you’ll get none from those who love America if you refuse to honor that oath of office!

For this reason, here are some of my suggestions, as a 9.12 Project/Tea Party organizer and network creator of the largest 9.12 Project-specific social network in the world. We don’t number in the millions, only the tens of thousands nationwide, but we are quite representative of the cross section of principled Tea Partiers nationwide. You would do well to heed our message.

So with our purpose crystal clear, and with a solid understanding of what’s at stake, let’s define Constitutionality:

Any part of the United States Federal Government which fails to be justified, using the Founding Fathers’ original intent, by Article I, Section VIII of the Constitution of the United States of…, is inherently UNCONSTITUTIONAL, and must be eliminated from the federal budget. EVERYTHING.

The only question is how fast do we eliminate them; not if. Just when.

And please note, Republicans, that the so-called ‘General Welfare Clause’ of the Constitution isn’t a clause, it’s a statement of intent, or in other words, it’s a purpose, and the Constitution does that by LIMITING government as Congress would if it stuck with justifying every single bill passed by Congress with Article I, SectionVIII. Here is the preamble, the statement of intent, of the Constitution of the United States of America:

of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Basically, the ‘general welfare clause’ isn’t a clause, it’s part of the statement of intent, or the preamble, and the structure they laid out in the Constitution IS SUPPOSED TO PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, BY LIMITING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, WHICH GIVES WE THE PEOPLE THE GREATEST AMOUNT OF FREEDOM WHILE MAINTAINING A PROPERLY-POWERFUL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, that is, when compared to inadequately-powerful governments, such as the previous ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION. Those created a federal government which was TOO WEAK to allow America to become what we have become, but our federal government is now so incredibly powerful and large, so UNCONSTITUTIONAL, that is is severely limiting America’s potential! We need to abolish every federal agency and department which IS NOT justified under Article I, Section VIII of the Constitution of the United States of…:


Article I Section 8.

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow money on the credit of the United States;

To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;

To provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States;

To establish post offices and post roads;

To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;

To constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court;

To define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the law of nations;

To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;

To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than two years;

To provide and maintain a navy;

To make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces;

To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;–And

To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.


And remember, the NECESSARY AND PROPER clause (the last paragraph above) does NOT mean you get to make up new powers, gobble up the states’ or the peoples’ rights, and ignore the ninth and tenth Amendments:


Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.


The ‘Necessary and Proper’ clause simply means Congress can make common-sense laws which enable the carrying out of Article I, Section VIII (and the rest of the Constitution). It is NOT a blank check of unlimited power.

So let’s get into some common-sense details.

To avoid riots, I would start it by an across-the-board freeze in the budget of every federal department, without exception, rather than eliminating all of them and starting over. In addition, I would insist upon an across-the-board federal pay cut of all taxpayer-funded salaries over the average salary of the American people (let’s say $50,000/year), INCLUDING Senators & Representatives. All federal salaries should decrease by something on the order of 20% each year until we reach private sector parity. For those making UNDER $50K/year, they can accept a $10% pay cut in each of the first two years.

On the other hand, I think that active-duty servicemen (& women) deserve an immediate 20% raise, with another one the following year, to help make up for the fact that they’ve been vastly under-compensated ever since they signed up. All raises should not be allowed to increase somebody’s salary beyond $100,000.00/year. All such individuals would get a 10% raise instead (these are rough figures, and could be adjusted as needed to make for a more smooth transition). And anybody who is killed while active duty should be immediately paid $100,000.00 to their estate (plus $20,000 additional for each child dependent under the age of 18). And everybody who completes a tour of duty in harm’s way should get a $5,000 ‘thank you’ from the American taxpayers ($10K if they have children under 18). Every time.

Also, in the first year, I would insist upon a 25% funding cut for all unconstitutional agencies/departments, and a 25% workforce reduction in those departments/agencies, with equal (25% of the original funding/payroll) cuts each of the following three years. In the fourth year, we would celebrate the total elimination of the unconstitutional departments/agencies.

See? A ‘Managed Decline’ of unconstitutional tax expenditures! I would prefer to do it immediately at 100%, but I would also like to avoid a civil war.

The obvious exception to these cuts would be the following departments: Education, Energy, Environmental Protection. HUD, and Labor, as well as 100% of Medicaid/SCHIP payments (let the states pay for such things if they wish to keep those programs). Since these departments/agencies all contribute directly to the ‘fundamental transformation’ of America from a Constitutional Republic to a fascist state, they must go immediately, as in de-funded 100%. Welfare would immediately be slashed by 25%/year until it’s totally phased out in year four.

The steps listed above, alone, would save an estimated $579 billion in year one, $722 Billion in year two, $866 Billion in year three, and just over a $Trillion dollars in the fourth year, based on FY2010 numbers. This only reflects the elimination of welfare and the unconstitutional departments/programs listed. The cuts in the additional unconstitutional departments/agencies, when combined with federal pay cuts, would add another half $Trillion in savings by the fifth year.

In fact, by the end of the fifth year, we’d be spending about $1.5 Trillion less than before, not counting savings from reduced Social Security and Medicare costs. I would estimate we would realize another half-$Trillion in savings there by the half-decade mark. That means $2 Trillion/year savings from year five going forward, and adding to that as we continue to reduce our interest payments, SS/Medicare expenditures over time, etc. From year five onward, there is A REAL BUDGET SURPLUS, assuming the freeze remains, we don’t enter additional wars, and our interest rates remain close to what they are today, since we’re paying down the debt, for once!

As for Social Security, I would privatize all accounts for those under the age of 40, extend the age of eligibility to 75, and do a thorough audit of all accounts, eliminating all which are paying fraudulent ‘benefits.’ (Note:  SilenceDogood2010 does NOT completely support this portion of Jared’s letter)

Medicare? That’s the trickiest one, but we’d need to rescind Medicare Part ‘D’ ASAP. Probably phase it out over a 5-year period, by reducing benefits by 20% of the original amounts each year for a half-decade. Perhaps that sort of thing would work for Medicare itself, as well, but stretch it out to 10% annually for a decade.

And ‘Federal Employee Unions’ would be immediately abolished. There should not be unions capable of extorting additional cash from taxpayers! (Note: SilenceDogood2010 DOES support this one 100%. Let me also add that ‘State Employee Unions’ should also be outlawed)

This may seem simplistic, but imagine the amount of investment which would begin to flow into America again once we got into surplus territory, started paying down the national debt (once we had cleared a couple $Trillion, people would take us seriously, and borrowing costs would plummet!), and cut corporate and income taxes to reasonable rates, in preparation for an eventual flat tax of no more than 10%!

We’d have the “official’ national debt paid off within 15-20 years, depending upon economic growth. As for the ‘off the books’ national debt, such as the unfunded liabilities from Social Security and Medicare, well, those start to look much, much better once we restructure them and prepare them for eventual phase-out. Two decades down the road, we’re where we would have been today had we started ten years ago, rather than waiting until near-total collapse!

Of course, that PRESUMES that we’ll continue our efforts to eliminate Progressivism from polite society, and keep it on the run from then on. You leave that to us.

But the best thing is that we don’t have to cower and fear the future. It may take us five years to show the world we mean business, but it CAN be done, and without bloody, violent revolution! And seriously, the accomplishments begin to be realized, and especially once we cross that critical line to a real, no-gimmicks BUDGET SURPLUS, our opponents will become politically-toxic to even moderate, ignorant Americans, for an entire generation (assuming we have restored our education system)!

Then it will be up to our children to keep up the good fight, to defend America from progressives, Communists, Fascists, and other evil leftists who wish to destroy America. Yes, there are people like that out there. Many of them meet regularly at (or via secure videoconferencing, in) the White House. They are progressives, fascists, and communists, and they despise what America is, and what she can become, if only we’ll rid her of the cancer that is progressivism!

Addendum added after the original letter:

Tax Reform

Few things are as destructive to America’s economy than confiscating too much from those who produce America’s wealth. It removes much of the incentive to work hard and innovate. If we continue to strangle the incomes of hard-working Americans as we do, then we’ll continue to reap the pathetic single-digit economic growth we’ve been reaping for decades. America’s tax code should be reduced to a single page (single spaced, 12-point font, one side), and while taxes would need to be TEMPORARILY higher than the optimal level, they are far too high right now. Another, deeper tax cut than George W. Bush & the Republicans pushed would give the incentive Americans need to risk capital (wealth), and create the new jobs America needs, to help re-start our economy, and to grow the economy so that tax receipts can rise to help us repay the debt. The optimal level of taxation is far below the current rate, to maximize federal and state government receipts. Right now, we’re shooting ourselves in the foot with a ridiculously complex tax code, and an oppressively high tax rate.

Like I said earlier, an optimal situation, once our national debt is retired, would be a 10% flat tax, be it a consumption tax (my strong preference) or an income tax. If 10% is good enough for God, it should be good enough for the limited government our Founding Fathers intended!

Finally, let’s discuss other abuses of the constitutional rights of the American people. There are six areas where we MUST liberate the American people from the oppressive federal government’s unconstitutional tyranny!

1) Second Amendment Violations – all federal gun laws need to be immediately repealed. There is no reasonable explanation for the unconstitutional usurpation of American Citizens’ right to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS; that right, according to the Constitution, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED:

Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Federal firearms regulations are not only unconstitutional, they are tyranny embodied. The founding fathers wanted the American people to always remain free, and when the Constitution was drafted, a militia was, basically, every able-bodied male citizen! And they MEANT for us to be an armed people, since they knew that if the people were sufficiently armed, the government would never become as tyrannical and oppressive as King George was to them. They MEANT for the entire citizenry to be armed and dangerous to tyrants, foreign AND DOMESTIC! When the citizenry is disarmed, the only ones who are safe are criminals and tyrants!

2) The United Nations – It is past time to end America’s flirtation with a global government. The United Nations was created to stop wars, but it has only increased their frequency, and it has enabled genocide and corruption on a global scale, to boot. It’s past time for America to pull out of the corrupt United Nations, and resume individual nation-to-nation diplomacy. That’s what the State Department is FOR!

3) The Federal Reserve – It is past time for Congress to resume her constitutional obligation to ‘coin money,’ and to take back control from the Federal Reserve. It was created to eliminate recessions, but they have failed miserably in that task. So long as we end deficit spending, there is no need for the Federal Reserve, a private corporation, to continue to exert so much control over the nation’s currency, as well as profit so handsomely therefrom.

4) Term Limits – It is past time for term limits for the House & Senate. If the Presidency is so powerful that it must be term-limited (as the ‘progressive’ FDR proved that it must, with his thirst for power and control over America), then so, too, should the House & Senate. Three terms in the House, and Two in the Senate, should be enough for any man who really wishes to SERVE the American people, rather than serve themselves. We need a constitutional amendment to make this a reality.

5) Repeal ALL of the corrupt 111th Congress legislation which imposes new regulations, expands government power, and is longer than a few pages! If something needs to be hidden in hundreds (or thousands) of pages of text, you can be certain it’s unconstitutional, and against the will of the American people! Please repeal, in their entirety, the single bill passed by the 111th Congress, which was over a couple dozen pages. Start with Obamacare, don’t forget to undo the union bailout that we called the automaker bailout, including the transfer of ownership, and end with specifically denying the FCC and other executive branch appendages the ability to regulate anything not specifically authorized by Congress and the Constitution. The Internet, and the rest of our communication abilities, must remain intact, without Big Brother’s heavy hand anywhere near.

6) Return all federal lands to the states which aren’t necessary for military bases, post offices, and other constitutionally-justified federal buildings. This includes every national park, forest, etc. The land must be available for the states. Nowhere in the Constitution does it allow the sort of tyrannical gobbling up of land that the Federal Government has been doing ever since the beginning of the ‘Progressive’ Era under Theodore Roosevelt. It’s time to undo this unconstitutional tyranny. Let the states do what they want with their land. Let them drill, develop, etc. how they please. Some will just keep the land off-limits (as I suspect Oregon and California may very well do), but some will finally make use of the land they’ve been denied for far too long, including Alaska, Utah, Nevada, and others. The west is tired of being oppressed under the steel thumb of the federal government.

Now please, Republicans, please get to it! There is much to do, and little time in which to accomplish it! America’s future rests in your hands. Do your absolute best the first two years, and that means do well, actually accomplish as much of this as possible, and you’ll not only get another two, but the Senate and the Presidency, as well! If you fail to begin doing what’s right for America, you will go the way of the Whig party.

NC Leaders declared a statewide “State of Emergency” on Christmas Day 2010.


By NBC17 Staff –  Published: December 25, 2010

“RALEIGH, N.C. —   North Carolina leaders have declared a State of Emergency for the entire state as winter weather is expected to bring significant snowfall to the Triangle region.

A State of Emergency declaration enables the governor or lieutenant governor to mobilize resources to respond to storm related issues.

As temperatures continue to drop, state highway patrol and emergency management officials are warning that travel could be treacherous later tonight and through much of Sunday. Falling nighttime temperatures could lead to patches of black ice again Monday and Tuesday morning.

“We know many people are traveling for the holidays and we want everyone to be extremely cautious,” said state Emergency Management Director Doug Hoell.”

Read the full story HERE.

In a nutshell, if you’re NOT a Law Enforcement Officer, ‘On or Off Duty’ then you have had your gun rights — ‘…to bear arms’ — taken away. You can NOT transport any weapons or ammo; You can NOT purchase any weapons or ammo because YOU can NOT POSSESS Weapons or Ammo except on your own premises.

What part of “Shall not be infringed” don’t these Democrats get?

Here are the general statutes that back up my statements;


NC General Statute 14-288.7

14-288.7.  Transporting dangerous weapon or substance during emergency; possessing off premises; exceptions.

(a)        Except as otherwise provided in this section, it is unlawful for any person to transport or possess off his own premises any dangerous weapon or substance in any area:

(1)        In which a declared state of emergency exists; or

(2)        Within the immediate vicinity of which a riot is occurring.

(b)        This section does not apply to persons exempted from the provisions of G.S. 14-269 with respect to any activities lawfully engaged in while carrying out their duties.

(c)        Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. (1969, c. 869, s. 1; 1993, c. 539, s. 192; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)

For reference only: Here is the GS referred to in section (b) 14-269


Also noteworthy, is that the ‘Governors Office’ website has

yet to post any executive order at the time of this posting.

(Copied from the internet… and a great story. Merry Christmas.)

The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn’t been anywhere in years since his wife passed away. He had no decorations, no tree, no lights. It was just another day to him. He didn’t hate Christmas, just couldn’t find a reason to celebrate. There were no children in his life. His wife had gone. He was sitting there looking at the snow that had been falling for the last hour and wondering what it was all about when the doors opened and a homeless man stepped through. Instead of throwing the man out, George, Old George as he was known by his customers, told the man to come and sit by the space heater and warm up. “Thank you, but I don’t mean to intrude,” said the stranger. “I see you’re busy. I’ll just go.”

“Not without something hot in your belly,” George turned and opened a wide mouth Thermos and handed it to the stranger. “It ain’t much, but it’s hot and tasty. Stew. Made it myself. When you’re done there’s coffee and it’s fresh.”

Just at that moment he heard the “ding” of the driveway bell. “Excuse me be right back,” George said. There in the driveway was an old 53 Chevy. Steam was rolling out of the front. The driver was panicked. “Meeester, can you ‘elp me!” Said the driver with a deep Spanish accent. “my espousa is with child and my car is broken.” George opened the hood. It was bad. The block looked cracked from the cold; the car was dead. “You ain’t going in this thing,” George said as he turned away. “But meester. Please ‘elp…me” The door of the office closed behind George as he went in. George went to the office wall and got the keys to his old truck, and went back outside. He walked around the building and opened the garage, started the truck and drove it around to where the couple was waiting.

“Here, take my truck,” he said. “She ain’t the best thing you ever looked at, but she runs real good.” George helped put the woman in the truck and watched as it sped off into the night. George turned and walked back inside the office. “Glad I gave em the truck. Their tires were shot too. That ‘ol truck has brand new…” George thought he was talking to the stranger, but the man had gone. The thermos was on the desk, empty with a used coffee cup beside it. “Well at least he got something in his belly,” George thought.

George went back outside to see if the old Chevy would start. It cranked slowly, but it started. He pulled it into the garage where the truck had been. He thought he would tinker with it for something to do. Christmas Eve meant not many customers. He discovered that the block hadn’t cracked, it was just the bottom hose on the radiator. “Well, shoot, I can fix this,” he said. So he put a new one on. “Those tires ain’t gonna get ‘em through the winter either.” He took the snow treads off of his wife’s old Lincoln. They were like new and he wasn’t going to drive the car.

As he was working he heard shots being fired. He ran outside and beside a police car an officer lay on the cold ground. Bleeding from the left shoulder, the officer moaned, “help me.” George helped the officer inside as he remembered the training he had received in the Army as a medic. He knew the wound needed attention. “Pressure to stop the bleeding,” he thought. The uniform company had been there that morning and had left clean shop towels. He used those and duct tape to bind the wound. “Hey, they say duct tape can fix anythin’,” he said, trying to make the policeman feel at ease.

“Something for pain,” George thought. All he had was the pills he used for his back. “These ought to work.” He put some water in a cup and gave the policeman the pills. “You hang in there. I’m going to get you an ambulance.” The phone was dead. “Maybe I can get one of your buddies on that there talk box out in your car. ‘ He went out only to find that a bullet had gone into the dashboard destroying the 2-way radio.

He went back in to find the policeman sitting up. “Thanks,” said the officer. “You could have left me there. The guy that shot me is still in the area.” George sat down beside him “I would never leave an injured man in the Army and I ain’t gonna leave you.” George pulled back the bandage to check for bleeding. “Looks worse than what it is. Bullet passed right through ‘ya. Good thing it missed the important stuff though. I think with time your gonna be right as rain.”

George got up and poured a cup of coffee. “How do you take it?” he asked. “None for me,” said the officer. “Oh, yer gonna drink this. Best in the city. Too bad I ain’t got no donuts.” The officer laughed and winced at the same time. The front door of the office flew open. In burst a young man with a gun. “Give me all your cash! Do it now!” the young man yelled. His hand was shaking and George could tell that he had never done anything like this before. “That’s the guy that shot me!” exclaimed the officer.

“Son, why are you doing this?” asked George. “You need to put he cannon away. Somebody else might get hurt.”

The young man was confused. “Shut up old man, or I’ll shoot you, too. Now give me the cash!” The cop was reaching for his gun. “Put that thing away,” George said to the cop. “We got one too many in here now.” He turned his attention to the young man. “Son, it’s Christmas Eve. If you need the money, well then, here. It ain’t much but its’ all I got. Now put that pee shooter away.” George pulled $150 out of his pocket and handed it to the young man, reaching for the barrel of the gun at the same time.

The young man released his grip on the gun, fell to his knees and began to cry. “I’m not very good at this am I? All I wanted was to buy something for my wife and son,” he went on. “I’ve lost my job. My rent is due. My car got repossessed last week…” George handed the gun to the cop. “Son, we all get in a bit of squeeze now and then. The road gets hard sometimes, but we make it through the best we can.” He got the young man to his feet, and sat him down on a chair across from the cop. “Sometimes we do stupid things.” George handed the young man a cup of coffee. “Being stupid is one of the things that makes us human. Comin’ in here with a gun ain’t the answer. Now sit there and get warm and we’ll sort this thing out.”

The young man had stopped crying. He looked over to the cop. “Sorry I shot you. It just went off. I’m sorry officer.” “Shut up and drink your coffee,” the cop said. George could hear the sounds of sirens outside. A police car and an ambulance skidded to a halt. Two cops came through the door, guns drawn. “Chuck! You ok?” one of the cops asked the wounded officer. “Not bad for a guy who took a bullet. How did you find me?” “A Mexican guy pulled into the ER, said he thought he’d heard gun shots as he was leaving the fillin’ station”. “Who did this?” the other cop asked as he approached the young man. Chuck answered him, “I don’t know. The guy ran off into the dark. Just dropped his gun and ran.”

George and the young man both looked puzzled at each other. “That guy works here?” the wounded cop continued. “Yep,” George said. “Just hired him this morning. Boy lost his job.” The paramedics came in and loaded Chuck onto the stretcher. The young man leaned over the wounded cop and whispered, “Why?” Chuck just said, “Merry Christmas boy. And you too, George, and thanks for everything.”

“Well, looks like you got one doozy of a break there. That ought to solve some of your problems.” George went into the back room and came out with a box. He pulled out a ring box. “Here you go. Something for the little woman. I don’t think Martha would mind. She said it would come in handy some day.” The young man looked inside to see the biggest diamond ring he ever saw. “I can’t take this,” said the young man. “It means something to you.” “And now it means something to you,” replied George. “I got my memories. That’s all I need.” George reached into the box again. An airplane, a car and a truck appeared next. They were toys that the oil company had left for him to sell. “Here’s something for that little man of yours.”

The young man began to cry again as he handed back the $150 that the old man had handed him earlier. “And what are you supposed to buy Christmas dinner with? You keep that too,” George said. “Now git home to your family.” The young man turned with tears streaming down his face. “I’ll be here in the morning for work, if that job offer is still good.” “Nope. I’m closed Christmas day,” George said. “See ya the day after.”

George turned around to find that the stranger had returned. “Where’d you come from? I thought you left?” “I have been here. I have always been here,” said the stranger. “You say you don’t celebrate Christmas. Why?”  “Well, after my wife passed away I just couldn’t see what all the bother was. Puttin’ up a tree and all seemed a waste of a good pine tree. Bakin’ cookies like I used to with Martha just wasn’t the same by myself and besides I was getting a little chubby.”

The stranger put his hand on George’s shoulder.

“But you do celebrate the holiday, George. You gave me food and drink and warmed me when I was cold and hungry. The woman with child will bear a son and he will become a great doctor. The policeman you helped will go on to save 19 people from being killed by terrorists. The young man who tried to rob you will make you a rich man and not take any for himself. That is the spirit of the season and you keep it as good as any man.”

George was taken aback by all this stranger had said. “And how do you know all this?” asked the old man. “Trust me, George. I have the inside track on this sort of thing. And when your days are done you will be with Martha again.” The stranger moved toward the door. “If you will excuse me, George, I have to go now. I have to go home where there is a big celebration planned.” George watched as the old leather jacket and the torn pants that the stranger was wearing turned into a white robe. A golden light began to fill the room.

“You see, George…it’s my birthday. Merry Christmas.”

George fell to his knees and replied, “Happy Birthday, Lord.”





Luke 2
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Update: Please refer to the comment below for explanation of this. It makes perfect sense now. The Search Warrant is issued to obtain ‘Evidence’ and it provides the court the Proper Documentation for when these offenders are brought to justice.

Side note to any and ALL LEO’s. The original intent of this post was for info. I will apologize if I have offended any of our fine LEO’s. Before the explanation, I could not figure out why a SW would be a SOP.

Thank you for the response Mr. Taylor.

More issues with Durham NC. From the Raleigh News & Observer dated December 10, 2010.

Sample image of a Search Warrant

A homeowner was awakened by burglars in the wee hours of the morning. He armed himself to protect his family and because he fired his weapon at the intruders, the Durham Sheriffs Department “AUTOMATICALLY” gets a Search Warrant for his Residence!

What is happening here in America?

What would be the reason listed for “Probable Cause” that would justify Law Enforcement to search his Premises? And this is considered SOP (Standard Operating Procedures)?

I would really like to know the “Logic” behind this action.


A Durham County homeowner shot and wounded three intruders who broke into his house this morning around 10:30. The homeowner was not injured.

Two suspects, Devine Thorpe, 20, and Gary Brady, Jr.,19, were caught and incarcerated in the Durham County Jail, where they remain under a $300,000.00 bond. Two others, Omari Mitchell, 20, and Timothy Nelson, 17, are hospitalized and under guard awaiting warrant service.

According to Maj. Paul Martin of the Durham County Sheriff’s Department, the homeowner was asleep when he heard a crashing sound and glass breaking.

He picked up a pistol and went downstairs where he was confronted by three masked men in a very small, confined and dark area. He fired multiple shots at the intruders who then ran from the residence. All three suspects were hit in various parts of their bodies.

One suspect was apprehended near the residence by a deputy sheriff, Victor Buchanan, who was responding to calls reporting gunshots. A fourth individual, who drove two of the injured suspects to a hospital, has confessed to being involved in the burglary as well.

Investigation is continuing and, as is usual in such a case, a search warrant has been obtained for the residence.

Early reports identified the crime location at 1017 Hamilton Way, the residence of Charles M. Dellerman according to Durham County tax records. The Sheriff’s Office will not confirm the homeowner’s identity or the location of the breakin.

A letter written to The Waco Tribune

Put me in charge…


Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Bag of Rice


Pot of Beans


Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test all recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercings. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke, or get tats and piercings, then get a job.



Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.



In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you to do. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good”.


Dodge Charger w/ 22" Rims


Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem”, consider that is wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.


Here is his comment from http://www.blackshards.com/?p=2415


Thanks for posting my letter. I wrote it as a letter to the editor at the Waco (Texas) Trib. My cousin (a Democrat) works on Ft Hood and a co-worker handed him his I-Phone and asked him to read a letter his brother in Mich had sent him. Half way through it he said “My cousin could have written this” and as he scrolled down he saw my name. It’s a small digital world.

I googled “Put me in charge” and found it on many sites. Thanks again for getting what I consider common sense out to the people.
