How in the CONUS is the government going to shut down the national parks? Are they all gated parks that the doors or gates can be locked? Are they going to post guards surrounding the parks? What's that expense? With no park tenders, it just might make the parks more accessible even though the government would loose a little revenue in access fees.
Hello Governor! My name is Dan Davey and I just wanted to touch base with you today regarding John Pistole.
He was a college buddy of mine at Anderson University in Indiana. It hurts me sometimes to hear the things that are said about John & the TSA.
Let me mention two things. First, John is a wonderful Christian guy, still married to his college sweetheart and without any hint of impropriety. They have a great family and he is a genuine "stand up" guy. He thought very highly of John Ashcroft & told me they had some great times together with John A. playing the banjo.
Secondly, I have been a pastor for many years and I told him that when I go to bed at night, I worry about the souls & lives of one congregation of people. But I said, "John, it must be tough for you, because you go to sleep with the safety of the free world on your mind." He said he just has to put it into the hands of the Lord.
We need to remember that we lost 3000+ lives on 9-11, which made us aware of the war we are fighting! Radical Islamists probably number in excess of 100 million (that's what some project to be about 10 percent of radicals, compared to the overall number of Muslims world-wide). Yet since that terrible day, we've not had any more tragic incidents like 9-11 on our soil. I believe it is in large part due to the diligence of people like John Pistole and his crew. Yes, their diligence and sometimes pettiness make our lives inconvenient, but in our "new world", think about what might be alternative.
I think it would be tremendous if you could get John on your program, so people could meet the real person behind the scenes.
God bless you Mike, and bless the USA!
Concerning the proposed bill to stop Obama from taking anymore golfing trips until the white house tours resume...It would sound much better if after explaining the bill, he would then say "It's a balanced approach"!!!!!!
I would like to express my view about ICE letting all those prisoners out of jail....you know the Illegal Immigrants....this childish, spiteful act by obama is one for the books....if they are allowing them out of jail, why don't they take them to the border and let them loose.....why in the world are they putting them back on American soil????..........Dennis
