    THE DEADLY SHOOTING DEATHS OF NINE BLACK AMERICANS IN A CHARLESTON, SC CHURCH LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT LEFT MANY THINKING THAT ANOTHER FULL BLOWN RACIAL RIOT MIGHT VERY WELL ENGULF THIS BEAUTIFUL SOUTHERN TOWN.  AFTER ALL, THE ALLEGED GUNMAN, DYLANN ROOF, WAS DEFINITELY A RACIST FILLED WITH HATE AND HE SHOWED LITTLE EMOTION AS HE GUNNED DOWN CHURCH MEMBERS ATTENDING A BIBLE CLASS WITH THEIR PASTOR, REVEREND CLEMENTA PINCKNEY, WHO WAS ALSO KILLED.

    What Happens When the Marines Can't Get There?

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE IS AT PEACE WITH LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP ALL AROUND. OKAY, YOU CAN WAKE UP NOW, FOR UNFORTUNATELY WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE GOOD AND EVIL ARE BOTH PRESENT AND GOOD PEOPLE MUST ALWAYS BE READY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM BOTH INDIVIDUALS AND OTHER NATIONS.


    SEVERAL DAYS AGO AN ARTICLE SURFACED TALKING ABOUT THE MARINES AND THEIR LACK OF TRANSPORTATION.  IT SEEMS THAT THE NAVY HAS BEEN DRAWN DOWN SO DRASTICALLY THAT THE MARINES ARE LOOKING FOR FOREIGN SHIPS TO USE WHEN THEY HAVE TO DEPLOY.  SO AMERICA'S 911 FORCE IS NOW IN A POSITION OF A FIRE COMPANY LACKING A FIRE TRUCK TO FIGHT A FIRE.  WHAT KIND OF DEFENSE ESTABLISHMENT IS THIS?


    SADLY, IT'S NOT LIMITED TO THE NAVY AND MARINES.  THE AIR FORCE IS HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING ENOUGH PILOTS AND THE ARMY HAS BEEN CUT TO MANPOWER LEVELS NOT SEEN SINCE THE 1930S. HMMM! ISN'T THAT INTERESTING.  JUST BEFORE HITLER MADE HIS MOVE AMERICA WAS AT A SERIOUS POINT OF WEAKNESS VERY SIMILAR TO TODAY.  AND YET, WE HAVE THREATS ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT HAVE OUR MILITARY SPREAD SO THIN THAT SUCCESS IS BECOMING DIFFICULT AT BEST.


    WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS TONIGHT.  AND IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AS A PART OF OUR LIFE BECAUSE WHEN AMERICA PUTS HER GUARD DOWN, THE IMPACT IT HAS ON OUR LIFE AND LIFESTYLE BECOMES CRITICAL IF NOT DOWNRIGHT DEADLY.


    HERE'S A LEAD IN ARTICLE FROM MY WEB SITE THAT MIGHT BE OF INTEREST:
