This article is about the type of government the Islamic jihadist group that calls itself “the Islamic State”, for the Foreign and Domestic Terrorists that are wreaking Havoc in and on our lands and for the acts of Treason that have been committed by our people.

Please pardon my expletive nature in the title but I had to grad your attention.  Folks – this is serious. You really don’t understand the full gravity of the ever developing circumstances that have been happening around the world lately. Over the course of the last 6 years, there have been more and more attacks both foreign and domestic. Up until recently, these attacks have been sparse and “at arm’s length” but now more than ever we need to be vigilant as there has been a rise in Domestic Terrorism. My intention is NOT to alarm anyone but moreover to make you aware of what is really going on in the world and in our back yard.

Have you seen these people?

Or even these People:

These people look just like or eerily similar to people that we see here every day (in America). They may live next door or run a Shop in your neighborhood. The fact remains, that we should have Immigration Laws and Guidelines to ensure our safety. We should have strict laws that deal with Domestic Terrorism and strict laws that deal with Treason (remember Treason)?  In law,  treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts of violence and non-violence against one’s nation or sovereign.

Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as a “citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, to make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]”. In America, it is also considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavor. I think I have recently seen this in the news and is going on now as a matter of fact.

As a young child, when I did something wrong or against my Parents rules, we received a Whooping, a Spanking, we got grounded, sat in a corner and we got our toys taken away.  Hmmmm, so what happened if we did it again, well we got punished even worse the next time until eventually we learned that that type of behavior was not acceptable.  We learned from our decision and actions. We learned that those actions had consequences.

I have brought up all of that to say this – we, as a Nation – have sat back and let ourselves become complacent, become so slack and in a sense transitioned into the “United States of the Offended” for so long that we are now scared or unable to speak up and do the right thing for fear of retaliation. This younger generation that has been brought up and raised to be more accepting and tolerant of certain situations need to realize the severity of what is really going on. The more we “give” the more they “take”. – Plain and simple. Most people will think that I am being too harsh or paranoid – but I have seen a lot in my short time, I know the patterns and I know what is coming.

Nothing before or since the terror attacks of 9/11 in terms of lives lost, scope, and impact have been so devastating. We know that the al Qaeda led and inspired operatives still seek to strike our homeland to include the use of weapons of mass destruction.  Globally fueled terrorism continues to occupy much of our attention to this day. As we were reminded by the shootings in Kansas, Arkansas, and the nation’s capital over just 11 days this spring, the threat of domestic terror—Americans attacking Americans based on U.S.-based extremist ideologies—is alive and well. Today’s domestic terror threats run deep, from hate-filled white supremacists… Black supremacists…to highly destructive eco-terrorists…to violence-prone anti-government extremists…to radical separatist groups.


It’s an especially tall order to try to prevent these attacks given the civil liberties we all enjoy as American citizens, including the right to free speech. Hate and anger are not crimes; neither are hard-line and poisonous ideologies. It’s only when actions by groups or individuals cross the line into threats, the actual use of force or violence, or other law-breaking activities where it then becomes terrorism.

Carrying Concealed…….


As many of you know, I was a Law Enforcement Officer and a Fire Fighter for many years. I started with the local Police Department under Chief James Champion. “Champ” as everyone called him was a small framed – white-haired, old-time Policeman – one who knew everybody and everybody knew him. After my first year, I was promoted to Sergeant and put in charge of the Department when Champ was Off-Duty or Out of Town. Now Champ was married and had a son named Greg who was full of energy and loved his daddy. Champ was also a Volunteer Fireman with the Norlina Fire Department as was I. We had 3 full-time officers and 5 reserve (part-time) officers who would work as needed.

After my 5th year with the Police Department, I was vetted by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office for a Sergeants position. After some deliberation, I accepted the position but was thrown for a loop by the Sheriff who informed me that I would have to spend the first year as a Deputy before he could place me in the Sergeants position. Nevertheless, I accepted (mainly due to the raise in pay) and reported as instructed. Soon afterwards, I did in fact earn my Sergeant stripes and then two years later became the Lieutenant. Our Chain of Command consisted of the Sheriff, the Lieutenant, Sergeants, and Detectives followed by the Deputies.

After 10 years with the Sheriff’s Office I decided it was time for a change and as of 2005, I have dedicated my entire life to my family. I enjoy watching my two sons and my daughter grow up and I enjoy living life with my family. I’m not on the outside looking in anymore, I am deeply involved with everything on a daily basis. I cook, I clean, I escort and transport, I wash clothes and I even vacuum – which my wife totally loves.

For the last 20+ years, I have always maintained my sidearm whether on the job or off. It’s just like grabbing your nail clippers, pocket knife, wallet and keys. It’s hardwired in and I have always had it with me. Now, after 12 years, I have come to the realization that I really needed to start legally carrying my weapon with me. My Wife and I have been talking about it for the last couple of months and have decided that it was time to get it done. As it turns out, “Champ” my old Police Chief, who has since retired and has passed away, his son Greg is going to be the Instructor for the Concealed Carry Weapons class coming up in a few weeks – my how time flies. It turns out that Greg has made a very successful career in Law Enforcement and has even started his own business called Person Safety NC where he teaches the Concealed Weapons courses along with First Aid/CPR and is a state certified instructor for Vance Granville Community College in the Basic Law Enforcement Program.

I am so proud to have watched him grow up and I am totally looking forward to this concealed weapons course……………..
