It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.
A lot of people trash our government, but have never lived in communism or under tyranny.
People complain about taxes, but drive on the roads their taxes pay for.
They protest wars, but don't take thought for their freedom of speech that allows them to protest.
They outrage about the economy, but buy products made overseas.
They denounce the president, but have never had to pay homage to a king or emperor.
I love my country.
I love the USA.
I thank God I was born here and have the freedoms, privileges and opportunities I have.
I thank the Veterans, who have fought, served, and been buried under our flag, for preserving my quality of life.
GOD bless the USA!

The Wii Fit sold out completely in Japan in less than a week when they released it there.
This game/ exercise tool a little more expensive than most games. Standard new Wii games run about 5o bucks. The Wii Fit is $89.99.
The price makes sense considering the additional hardware, ie. the wireless board. And I'm sure Nintendo figures America will pay, especially since this product crosses 2 of our favorite things to spend money on, video games, and health and weight loss tools/ gimmicks.
And the Wii Fit sold out completely in Japan in less than a week when they released it there.
I think they are right though, when I checked the Game Stop website this morning it said they were already sold out. I am only counting on getting mine because I reserved it.
You can check it out more at the >>>Nintendo Wii Fit<<< site.
So the next thing I am excited about today: Odd Hours by Dean Koontz
This is the 4th book in the Odd Thomas series.
They are about a unique and interesting young man who can see the dead.
"The dead don't talk, I don't know why."
The first book, Odd Thomas is my favorite in the series, but I have enjoyed all of them immensely. I even suggested Odd Thomas for my book club and they loved it.
I will be downloading the audiobook today so Chris and I can listen to it on our ipods.
(We don't share books well and have had to buy 2 copies of every Harry Potter book. We have learned that audio books we can buy once, but both use at the same time.)
So maybe I can listen to Odd Hours while doing yoga or running on my Wii Fit.
