READY ROOM – What is a ready room?

By |December 25th, 2013|

A ready room is the location where on-duty pilots “stand by” their airplanes.  Each flight squadron has its own designated ready room where they can talk and prepare for the upcoming flight. – Wikipedia

On this website, we have a ready room.  You are invited to join Dave Agema—retired fighter pilot, three-term Michigan State Representative, and current State Representative to the Republican National Committee—for a once-a-month live stream conversation.  Stay tuned for the schedule of live chats.

SIDEWINDER – What is a sidewinder?

By |December 24th, 2013|

The AIM-9 missile is a short range, heat-seeking air-to-air missile consistently used by the military since the 1950’s.  It is a significant part of the United States arsenal. – Wikipedia

 

On this website, the Sidewinders are 3-8 minute videos focused on current political issues.  Each Sidewinder will strike with truth leaving no room for political correctness.

I’d like to start with a couple of videos that do a really great job of capturing the spirit of the season:

“A Hallelujah Christmas” by Cloverton
 

I remember sitting in an unheated quonset hut in Korea on Christmas Day 1976 on a remote tour without my family, watching an outdated movie in my Mickey Mouse boots, long underwear, and parka, wondering what my family was doing and how I missed them all.  When I arrived home a year later my 15 month old daughter didn’t recognize me.  Please remember the troops that serve at the whim of a civilian politician.  Never send them to war unless you’ll let them fight to win with everything at their disposal, or don’t send them at all.  They give up a lot at this time of year.  Please reach out to their families here and let them know you care.  There are only two people that died for you, Jesus for your soul and the American soldier for your freedom.  May we never forget!  Let us stand on the principles that made this country great.

 

As you celebrate Christmas remember this:  II Corinthians 9:15 (NLT) “Thank God for his Son – a gift too wonderful for words.”  Romans 15:13 (ESV) “May the God of hope fill you with all JOY AND PEACE in believing so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in Hope.”  In a world that seems hopeless, our hope is in God and His principles, not that of man.  As you celebrate with family and friends, give thanks to God, who blessed this country more than any other because we […]

Before I get started, I’d like to show you the video below, which is, I think, the best deconstruction of the ObamaCare disaster that I’ve yet to see (and it’s pretty thorough).  Even if you don’t read any further, please watch this video:

Oh, and just so we’re clear, even though they’ve done their very best to hide this truth from public view, anyone who registers on healthcare.gov shouldn’t be under any illusion that their private data is protected from public view:

As we approach the Christmas season, let us continue in the hope our forefathers had for a better America.  Christmas has always been a time of family and commitment to our God, who blesses a nation that honors Him.

 

Yes, we have seen much destruction of America as the result of men seeking power and money, yet we are the most blessed nation in the world, because throughout our nation’s history men and women have stood up against tyranny, persecution, and liberalism for the sake of freedom.  I doubt whether there has ever been a better time to get involved in politics than now.  All that’s necessary is to keep on keeping on.  Perseverance wins.  Giving up doesn’t.

 

It seems everywhere in the political realm I look, I see the Judeo Christian ethic under attack.  These principles were the ones our founding fathers used to formulate our Constitution.  They work.  Many of our founding fathers had divinity degrees.  All put their lives on the line when our Declaration of Independence was formed.  We should do no less for the benefit of those that follow us.

 

We are under attack by the democrat machine.  They seek to expose any division they can find within the GOP.  That is […]
