Don't Want To Miss It Folks
FIRST HOUR: RICHARD MACK
Sheriff Richard Mack (Ret)
Sheriff Mack is best known for challenging the Brady Bill, a gun control scheme requiring local law enforcement to perform background checks on prospective gun purchasers. He maintained that the Federal Government had no authority to command local officials, and became the first sheriff in American history to sue the Federal Government (under the Clinton administration) and win at the US Supreme Court. The case was based on the Tenth Amendment, states rights and local sovereignty.
Mack is the son of an FBI agent and began his own law enforcement career as a street cop in Provo, Utah. After graduating from BYU in 1978, Mack became an officer with Provo P. D. He was soon promoted to corporal, sergeant, and detective. He spent one year as an undercover narcotics agent. In 1988, Mack moved home to Arizona where he ran for sheriff. He was elected Graham County Sheriff and served as such for eight years. It was during this time – in 1994 – that federal agents informed all sheriffs that they would be required to work for the Federal Government under the mandate of the Brady Bill, and Mack's court case began. Since that landmark ruling Mack has written seven books and appeared at over 120 Tea Party rallies nationwide. He has stood against the incursions of the Federal Government and has fought for civil rights from Hawaii to Bangor, Maine.
He is the Founder and President of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) and is on the Oath Keepers Board of Directors.
Depression, suicide, relapse and the Third Step are the topics for God Box Mike and dougananda for their March 21, 2015 Blogtalk Radio broadcast. Depression, cross-addictions and suicides are the ugly ugly side of recovery. Depression hammers alcoholics and addicts who slip back into their addictions and even some who despair despite being in recovery. Suicide often looks like a way out.It is hard to "turn it over" to a higher power when you've been living for years in the negativity of addiction. Let's face it, being clean and sober requires a mammoth effort to find a transformation that will bring about serenity in the face of all the problems stacked up against recovering people.
Suicide is a hot topic these days. National Public Radio reports that suicide was the third largest cause of death for people between the ages of 10 and 19. Anyone with time in recovery has known at least a few people who took their own lives, either before or after a relapse. Mike and dougananda have known a few. They as for only one thing: Please don't do it.
Our operation was named after Chris Eggle, a National Park Law Enforcement Officer who gave his life protecting our great country. In March of 2015 a group of Men gathered together to continue defending and protecting this great country in his Honor. Men from the east cost to the west coast to the central part of America came together for one cause, Protect America.
The Team hit the trails and mountains hard! We flushed out an area of approximately 8 ROUGH DESERT MILES, and rid it of drug and human trafficking. Our team initiated no less than 3 foot pursuits with cartel, and did a search for additional the last two nights. The area that we hit enabled us to push the cartel straight into Border Patrol, which affected directly the apprehension of at least 57 total individuals, 23 of which were drug mules, 30 illegal aliens, and at least 798 pounds of narcotics. For our team this operation was a success, but more importantly, for the men and women of this country this was an opportunity to show Americans what is possible if we just stop talking and start acting. We could run these operations all year round if enough people would walk the walk and back up the talk. I love my country and am proud to say that I did something to actually protect it, and I urge every man and woman to stand and do the same.

In the interest of demonstrating our sanity, Jeff, Matt and I went to a SMART Recovery meeting. Then we talked about it.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan wants to fight Heroin. He has quite a bit of work to do. That heroin is simply flooding out of Afghanistan daily. In fact, this is the biggest drug epidemic America has seen since the 1980's cocaine/crack epidemic while the CIA was helping those Contras down there in South America where the cocaine is grown from the coca plant then processes for delivery to America by the plane load. That crack scourge rivaled the old heroin epidemic in the 1960's and 1970's when the drug mostly came from Southeast Asia where by coincidence America just happened to be fighting a war with Vietnam keeping the world free from the communists playing dominoes or something like that if I recall correctly.
Here's an idea. Now I don't want to tell the generals how to fight their wars and such but every place our military fights that happens to produce illegal drugs ends up flooding those drugs into our country. My humble suggestion is if you want to fight a drug war wouldn't it be better to do it right where you already have our military? I noticed on FOX Geraldo did a story about our GI's protecting the poppy crop so those Taliban don't get at it. It worked too because it all turned up on the streets of America where we hardly have any of those Taliban.
Now if we could only find out who snatched the tons of refined product when the military obviously must have been preoccupied fighting the Taliban. Then we could really put a stop to this latest heroin outbreak. Maybe you might share this broadcast so that it could make it's way to the military leaders who obviously haven't noticed that right where they are always are fighting, narcotics are found as well then they find their way to America somehow.
Maybe Blogtalk will permit this broadcast.

Reggie had always been famous for how many beers he could drink without feeling any effects. But something had changed. He'd been drunk several times recently, according to friends. You're called in when he's arrested for a DUI.
In 2001 there were 1.4 million arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. That is 1 out of every 137 drivers.
