Yesterday was absolutely my best day in the whole year of 2020.

My alma mater The Oregon State University football team, upset the ranked team of the University of Oregon, 41-38! My son was with me while we watched it. Special times.

It didn’t look good it the first half. We were down 11 points, but in the fourth quarter the guys ran off 22 points and won. We own the state of Oregon for a whole year.

I think even the cardboard people in the stands loved it.

It is very hard to find any positives in this year, but I will ride this pony as long as I can.

There is still no decision on who our next president will be.

I see that the Republicans are claiming that they have proof of bad stuff happening at the polls. We will see what the supreme court has to say.

I am a Christian and I am sure God will put a man in office that HE wants and not what any people want.

I have been showing you some of the latest equipment that the military is putting together.

There are a lot more coming. We should be a great shape if some horrible war starts up.

Speaking of the military. Remember that our brothers and sisters are away from home for the holidays. Yes, they are surround by many buddies, but it is not the same as having your family around you.

There are some veterans who are members of congress.

They have been doing some good things. U. S. Senator Joni Ernest from Iowa is a retired officer who led troops in Kuwait and Iraq

She introduced a bill calling 0n the VA to disengage a National Buddy Check week to reach out to veterans probably struggling with mental health.

Here are some great things the American Legion is doing:

  1. Participants from Pony Express 2,330 mile ride from California to Indianapolis donated $83,562 to the National Commander of the American Legion
  2. 65- number of American Legion Grants disbursed during 2020 totally $114,848.

The Good Guys Are Losing the “War” in Portland, Oregon

I know that I am overdoing the reporting of the mess in Portland, Oregon, but it is breaking my heart. It has been over 100 days since the rioting first started and there is no end in sight. There have been people murdered, beaten, stores burnt down, and police officers being accosted.

People fear going outside. They see what is happening on the TV’s and it is right outside their doors.

President Trump has repeatedly offered to send in help to stop it. The governor and mayor have told him to leave them alone. Such weakness, is killing people.

As a veteran I KNOW what I would do and it wouldn’t be pretty. I am sure there are many of you who may agree with me. I would go in and start pushing back, and anyone that tried to stop us would be taken down and arrested. AND PROSECUTED!

Here is a side story that has me screaming. One of the antifascists (their name) shot and killed an innocent young man at point blank. The gunman got away. (Only because he was arrested for carrying a weapon. He was released the next day and not prosecuted.) That was about three days ago. Today there was a stabbing death of a young couple up in Washington. It was the same man that the local police in Portland had identified as the killer.

Because they released him without any charges he killed two more people.! I CAN NOT ACCEPT THAT. If they would had prosecuted him in Portland, the two people in Washington would still be alive, and they would also find out his was the killer in Portland. They should have put him away right there for the rest of his life.

I know this doesn’t have too much to do of what this site is all about, but maybe it is!!

I am going to get very political here. I hope I don’t lose too many of you.

I am fearing a civil war. A real civil war. Both sides of these happenings are very sure they are right and seem to think they would die for it.

The democrats are almost applauding the rioting. They think this will end the President’s White House visit. The democrats run every major city that is rioting. All of them want President Trump to leave them alone, because they think they are doing fine.

I need to stop here, and cool down! Sorry I ranted on you.

PERMANENT GUTTERS

As you probably already know – maintaining gutters is the most important thing you can do to prevent water damage to your home and thus preventing mold growing into a serious problem! But cleaning them is not only a dirty but also dangerous and tedious task.

Fortunately, Servicemembers & Veterans can claim LeafFilter’s spring offer for their patented & award-winning permanent solution to prevent clogged gutters in addition to their 10% year-round military discount! This means you get 10% + 10% + $100 Off – in addition, they’ll throw in a transferable lifetime warranty for your peace of mind!

MORTGAGE RELIEF

One of the many perks of being a veteran is access to benefits that are otherwise unavailable to civilians. Unknown to many active duty and former military members are some amazing government refinance programs available to them through their VA/GI Bill benefits which can help them save money on their existing house payments.

Currently, Congress’ mortgage relief program can lower veteran homeowner payments by as much as $3,252 per year!

The bad news? This program is very temporary, as the banks want it eliminated as soon as possible. The good news is that once you match with a lender you’re in for good.

_____________________________________________________________________

For years insurance rates have only been going up and up, BUT starting this year 2020 rates can be cut down. Most military personnel are shocked to find out how much they can save by simply switching to a new 2020 policy!

Most insurance companies and brokers will not tell you this because they are getting paid on commission and want you to keep paying high rates but if you live in a qualified zip code and had no DUI in the last 2 years you might be eligible for a huge discount on your current rate! In our self-test we were able to lower our rate from almost $120 to only $40 with the same coverage!

That was fun to share with you the many ways to save money. We all sure can use it.

So how are you doing my friend? There are so many terrible things happening around us right now. I live close to Portland, Oregon, and I am sick of what is happening. The mayor is an idiot, and is fighting President Trump for sending Federal Agents. He is even suing him. That is absolutely crazy. There is rioting, burning of businesses, people shot, and many beatings. It has to stop and I am embarrassed to say this is happening in my home state.

Are you under a lot of stress because of what is happening? Is it hard to go through your day?

You are not alone. There are 8.651 fellow veterans here, and they have your six. Just make a comment in the comment section below and we will get you help.
