" Find the cost of freedom, buried in the ground "

Crosby Stills Nash : Find The Cost Of Freedom

Bowe Bergdahl, who is from central Idaho, has been held by the Taliban for the last two weeks. In the 28 minute video that was released on the Taliban's website, the 23 year old soldier is seen talking about how he was captured. He says he was lagging behind while on patrol, but the U.S. Military says that information is under investigation.

How much longer will we spend American lives and dollars to fight in countries where we are not welcome.

Bigger government, higher taxes, protecting other counties to the point of not being able to defend our own boarders, abandoning our industry in search of cheaper products is not the way to a brighter future for America.

Too many Americans are brain dead by mindless television dancing stars, talent shows and reality shows while our nation slips behind in education, longevity, and employment opportunities. Pray, send good thoughts or what ever you can do for this young service man being held captive. Pray for our nation, be an informed voter, elect statesmen and women who will work for the good of the country not further their own greed and corruption. How much further can we go in the wrong direction before we say this is enough?

We may not have the control over what we want in our nation, however, we do have control of what we eat and whom we eat it with. I healthy meal to share with family and friends. Here is an excellent colorful salad I created last night to go with my baked Haddock and homemade Parmesan garlic biscuits.
