Ole Sarge's

I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Flag of the United States

National Flag Foundation

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

-- Ronald Reagan, President

"The fundamental basis of this nation's law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teaching we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in the right for anybody except the state."

-- Harry S. Truman, President (Democrat)

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have:

  • no federal meddling in our schools;
  • no Federal Reserve;
  • no U. S. membership in the U. N.;
  • no gun control; and
  • no foreign aid.

We would have

  • no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor";
  • no American troops in 100 foreign countries;
  • no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track";
  • no arrogant federal judges usurping states' rights;
  • no attacks on private property; and
  • no income tax.

We can get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget. The government would be small, frugal, and limited."

-- Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman

Almighty Father , whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will.   Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones and Thee without shame or fear.   Protect my family. Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm.   Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance.   Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me.   Make me considerate of those committed to my leadership.   Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold.

If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again.

Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.


"14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

"15Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place."

-- 2 Chronicles 7:14-15 (Holy Bible, King James Version)

Our land is in desparate need of healing.

"18Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall."

-- Proverbs 16:18 (Holy Bible, King James Version)

For Those Who Fought For It,
Freedom Has A Special Flavor
The Protected Will Never Know.

America's Veterans: Noble by birth yet nobler by deeds.

My special thanks to all who answered America's calls.
Darry L. Deaton, Former Staff Sergeant USMC

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.. (1868)

Vet & His Dog

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
who has given us the right to vote.

US Flag
It is the VETERAN,
who salutes the Flag,
who serves the Flag,
who is laid to rest under the Flag.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words!
This picture unleashes a whole range of emotions, doesn't it?
Man in wheelchair photo.
"Soldiers Like Him."

Although his hair was graying and his legs weren't strong, his heart was powerfully full of patriotic song. He had pride for his Country, the same one for which he'd fought, laying down his life, so freedom could be sought. When others began to stare, it changed his mind none, for he had earned the right; he had carried the soldier's gun. With his shakey right hand, he applied it to his chest, stood as straight as he was able, his pride for Nation was above the rest. He had crawled through the mud, on his belly so cold, to protect Old Glory, while she flew so bold. Each star and each stripe, waved forever in his mind.

And his wheelchair carried the results of a long ago land mine. But he mustered the strength, from a place the others would never understand, for he still traveled with the nightmares of the Iwo Jima sands. While the others remained seated, it was he that was in awe, for he knew if it wasn't for soldiers like him, this Nation would surely fall.

What is wrong with this picture?   It is a slap in the face to every man and woman who has answered the call to duty and honorably worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces!

"Ole Sarge's Corner"

Sound Off Loud & Clear!!
Nothing sacred here,
Sarge takes them all on.

Where's The Birth Certificate?

When Ole Sarge enlisted in the United States Marine Corps he had to show a valid birth certificate to prove that he was a citizen of the United States.

When Ole Sarge filed for Social Security he had to show a valid birth certificate to prove that he was a citizen of the United States.

The Constitution of the United States of America requires that the President of the United States be a natural born citizen. Simple logic tells us that if Mr. Obama were a natural born citizen of the United States he would have provided a valid birth certificate as proof. As of March 28, 2009 Mr. Obama has refused to produce such a document.

Again simple logic tells us that if Mr. Obama were a natural born citizen he would produce a valid birth certificate. Since he refuses to produce such a document one must infer that Mr. Obama cannot produce the document because it does not exist. Ergo, Mr. Obama cannot legally hold the office of President of the United States.

Will Mr. Obama produce a valid birth certificate? Or will he continue to defy the Constitution of the United States of America and defraud the citizens of this country? (March 2009)

What happened to Merry Christmas?
Ole Sarge watches quite a bit of Maryland Public Television (MPT), especially the British Comedy programs.

Last December (2008) Ole Sarge observed that while MPT televised numerous "Happy Hanukkahs" and "Happy Kwanzaas", he saw not one "Merry Christmas". There were numerous "Happy Holidays", but Ole Sarge heard/saw not ONE "Merry Christmas".

Ole Sarge cannot help but wonder "Did I just miss the Merry Christmas? Or has MPT has turned its back on our Christian heritage?" (February 2009)

Ole Sarge observes that the most obnoxious music is always played the loudest -- by very obnoxious people.

Other obnoxious people include those who insist that Ole Sarge hears their sides of their cell phone conversations. So they naturally talk very loud ... and, seemingly, interminably.
