Does anyone else think this administration is releasing the prisoners at Gitmo so they have room for America's real threat, U.S. Veterans?

24 April 2009,

Not sure how much longer I can hold out, being on the run from the authorities can be exhausting. I've dived into a local internet cafe, I'm sure I only have a few moments to jot down some comments and then I will have to leave, another town, another state. This guy I met in at the bus station said he could get me some good "clean" documents that I might be able to cross into Canada with, it's that or try crossing into Mexico, either way, it's a long trip to France. Ok, let me start from the beginning........

Apparently, two weeks ago, Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano identified me and about 400,000 returning veterans as "individuals needing to be watched" as we could be considered possible terrorists to this country. It's strange being on this side of the hunt. Knowing that in just a few days after that announcement the FBI would release their new list of "Most Wanted" I had to make a break for it before I was black bagged in my own home in the middle of the night. I grabbed the twenty dollars I had hidden in the sock drawer, my Gerber multi-tool and a couple of MRE's. There was no time to say goodbye to the family. I was an optimist and always believed in hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. I had no idea....none......that the worst would be me on the run. My problem, I don't have a mythical one-armed man or a molecular reconstruction that will clear my name. France, yes, France, it seems highly unlikely, almost unfathomable, but France is now more conservative that the U.S. So, for now, it's France that I'm trying to get to, until we get things turned around here. If anyone gets a chance to check the Most wanted, leave me a message and let me know if I'm on it yet.

Well, I didn't intend on taking a month off between postings, but my procrastination set in and since the medical field hasn't developed a medication for that yet......
I have noticed several blogging friends have been taking sabbaticals from the posting and I am certainly one who understands. I usually only share what my time has been like and every once and a while my opinion on the topic of the day, while I see much more effort being put into the content and context of what you say.
I have been staying very busy working between the police department and the National Guard. Good grief, I could use a couple more of me. I did manage to get the yard mowed yesterday before the winds picked up to 35-40 mph and several fires broke out from Texas to Kansas. I can't recall a time when I have heard of entire communities being evacuated although with my training I know it's to be expected. Reports last night where that the damages associated with the fires who exceed those of the May 3 tornadoes we had in 1999.
Mrs. Dub mentioned to me that a new television channel needs to be started that only reports good news. You can't turn on any of today's programs without falling into despair from the stories out there. Either we are as bad off as they are reporting, or it is some one's desire to lead us to believe such things so that when they offer the "solution" we buy into it hook, line and sinker.
Well, remember the outcome of your day rests solely on you. You can't control what happens, just how you respond to it.
Be safe and have a great day.
