The Drug Problem in America

    The other day, someone at a store in our town read that a methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farmhouse in the adjoining county and he asked me a rhetorical question, ''Why didn't we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?''

    I replied: I had a drug problem when I was young:
I was drug to church on Sunday morning.

I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.

I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.

I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.

 I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did
not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didn't put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.

  I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a profane four-letter word.

I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and flower beds and cockleburs out of dad's fields.

            I was drug to the homes of family, friends, and neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline, or chop some firewood;

and, if my mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness, she would have drug me back to the woodshed.

    Those drugs are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin; and, if today's children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place.

This was sent to me today.  I'm not sure if Mitchell Kaye said it, but it's interesting to read......what do you think about this???  Let me know...fill in the guest book below and make a comment!!!  I love to hear from all of you from all over the world!!!


Would George Washigton Be Happy Today?

We The People Of The United States

The following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA. 

"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for all of the terminally whiny, guilt ridden & delusional.

We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused
by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights."

: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II : You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III : You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV : You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health care.

ARTICLE VI : You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII : You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII : You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX : You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!

Dear President Bush,

Many of us were deeply touched to hear you recite a portion of a Psalm in your address to this great nation in the dark hours following the terrorists attacks.

I, Sugar Bush Squirrel of the United States of America, am requesting that you lift the prohibition of discussing religion and prayer in schools. As the pledge of our great country states, we are to be "One nation, under God." Please allow teachers to discuss prayer and religion with students for open discussion.  Teachers are the ones who have an 'obligation to instruct our youth' in all matters, including prayer and religion, as they might not receive any guidance on these topics in other walks of their lives.  Please allow these teachers to help our youth make very serious decisions as to the religions available to them or whether they choose to have any religion at all.  To help our children learn about different religions could make all the difference in the future of our great world, even if it is only a minute of personal silence to worship individually while together, without the threat of punishment.

P.S. My middle name's Bush, too.  Are we related?

sugar bush squirrel as a prisoner of war


by Senator John  McCain

As you may  know, I spent five and one half years as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam  War. In the early years of our imprisonment, the NVA kept us in solitary  confinement or two or three to a cell. In 1971 the NVA moved us from these  conditions of isolation into large rooms with as many as 30 to 40 men to a  room. This  was, as you can imagine, a wonderful change and was a direct result of the  efforts of millions of Americans on behalf  of a few hundred POWs 10,000 miles from home.
One  of the men who moved into my room was a young man named Mike Christian. Mike  came from a small town near Selma, Alabama.  He  didn't wear a pair of shoes until he was 13 years old. At 17, he enlisted  in the US Navy. He later earned a  commission by going to Officer  Training School. Then he became a Naval Flight Officer and was shot down and  captured in 1967. Mike had a keen and deep appreciation of the opportunities  this country and our military provide for people who want to work and want to  succeed.

As  part of the change in treatment, the Vietnamese allowed some prisoners to receive packages from home. In some of these packages were handkerchiefs, scarves and other items of clothing. Mike got himself a bamboo needle. Over a period of a couple of months, he created  an American flag and sewed on the inside of his shirt. Every  afternoon, before we had a bowl of soup, we would hang Mike's shirt on the  wall of the cell and say the Pledge of Allegiance. I  know the Pledge of Allegiance may not seem the most important part of our day  now, but I can assure you that in that stark cell it was indeed the most important and meaningful event.
One day the Vietnamese searched our cell, as they did periodically, and discovered  Mike's shirt with the flag sewn inside, and removed it. That  evening they returned, opened the door of the cell, and for the benefit of all  of us, beat Mike Christian severely for the next couple of hours. Then, they  opened the door of the cell and threw him in. We cleaned him up as well as we  could.  The  cell in which we lived had a concrete slab in the middle on which we slept.  Four naked light bulbs hung in each corner of the room. As  I said, we tried to clean up Mike as well as we could.  After the excitement died down, I looked in the corner of the room, and sitting there beneath that dim light bulb with a piece of red cloth, another shirt and his bamboo needle, was my friend, Mike Christian. He was sitting there with his  eyes almost shut from the beating he had received, making another American flag. He was not making the flag because it made Mike Christian feel better.  He was making that flag because he knew how important it was to us to be able to Pledge our allegiance to our flag and country.
So  the next time you say the Pledge of Allegiance, you must never forget the sacrifice and courage that thousands of Americans have made to build our nation and promote freedom around the world. You  must remember our duty, our honor, and our country...

"I  pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to
the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Someone wrote me last week and said they heard the ACLU is trying to pass a law where no crosses would be allowed on Federal Property!!!! 


What are they thinking??? We'll never do away with these crosses!!! They can forget about it!!!

                     JOHN GLENN (ON THE SENATE FLOOR)
                          Mon, 26 Jan 2004 11:13

Some people still don't understand why military personnel do what they do
                               for a living.
  This exchange between Senator John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum
           is worth reading.  Not only is it a pretty impressive
           impromptu speech, but it's also a good example of one
            man's explanation of why men and women in the armed
                  services do what they do for a living.

              This IS a typical, though sad, example of what
             some who have never served think of the military.

              Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn):
                        "How can you run for Senate
                    when you've never held a real job?"

                          Senator Glenn (D-Ohio):
           "I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps.
             I served through two wars.  I flew 149 missions.
          My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different
           occasions.  I was in the space program.  It wasn't my
          checkbook, Howard, it was my life on the line.  It was
        not a nine-to-five job, where I took my tie off to take the
                     daily cash receipts to the bank."

          "I ask you to go with me ... as I went the other day...
              to a veterans' hospital and look those men ...
            with their mangled bodies in the eye, and tell THEM
                          they didn't hold a job!

You go with me to the Space Program at NASA and go, as I have gone, to the
                            widows and orphans
              of Ed White, Gus Grissom, and Roger Chaffee...
             and you look those kids in the eye and tell them
                    that their DADS didn't hold a job.

             You go with me on Memorial Day, and you stand in
          Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends
              buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch
                            those waving flags

             You stand there, and you think about this nation,
           and you tell ME that those people didn't have a job?

                             What about you?"

                      For those who don't remember ..
             During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an attorney
               representing the Communist Party in the USA.

                            Now he's a Senator!

                  If you can read this, thank a teacher.
             If you are reading it in English thank a Veteran.

If you're free, thank a veteran

News from Alum Creek State Park in Ohio

We would like to thank all the people who organized, sponsored, volunteered and supported the 4th of July parade and the boating and fishing festival at Alum Creek State park in Ohio.  It is a beautiful thing to see so many people come out and share what is a lifelong passion and love of ours and to spend time on and near the water enjoying the companionship of fellow boaters. Below are the two winners of the boat parade.

Sugar Bush Squirrel would like to add, "There's not a spin squirrel in the forest who could make this look like a contest!  In fairness to all involved, I think it would be best to just have a fun day in the spirit of Liberty, Justice and Equality!"

Did you know that there is a town called Sugar Bush in Minnesota? 

Neither did I until today!!! 

Upon further investigation, I found out that a little boy disappeared from his home on Sept. 30, 1982 in Sugar Bush, Minnesota.  He would now be 25 years old.  Here's the story...Two year old, Kevin Jay Ayotte and his brother were upstairs playing in their summer home.  Their mother went outside briefly and when she returned, Kevin was gone!  He has a scar on the right side of his chin.  His speech is limited and he is hearing impaired.  The photos below are of him as a little boy and age progressed as he might look now.  If you see anyone matching this description please contact

the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children!!!

Or you can call them:
