I am tired of watching my rights be trampled daily. I would LOVE for there to be more power for the people and actual consequences if our constitutional rights were violated.

The people have had enough!!!

Justice for Caesar…the pot-bellied pig murdered by the DNR

This is Caesar…

The pet pot-bellied pig murdered by the DNR.

The pet pot-bellied pig murdered by the DNR.

A pet pot-bellied pig, who was shot to death by a DNR officer on April 2nd, 2015. Please read this family’s story and share.

Justice for Caesar

Help us avenge our murdered pet and all of those murdered before ours. Here is our story.

Justice for Caesar

On Thursday April 2nd, 2015 our house pet miniature pot bellied pig, Caesar, went missing. My girlfriend Brandy and I, our 3 month old baby boy, our two dogs and our piggy live way out so we were never worried about letting the animals out on our property. Caesar wanders our property and grazes on nice days as happy as can be eating grass and rooting.

We yelled for him and shook a box of cereal (usually food noises get him moving) but nothing. The ground was soft still so we were able to follow his hoof prints down our driveway onto our dirt road.

To our shock and disgust, we found a puddle of blood and short drag mark several feet off of our property line. No piggy though. There were no other animal tracks so we knew he hadnt been attacked. We were clueless so we took to Facebook hoping someone would have information on weather someone might have hit him with a car and taken him to the vet or anything, we were worried sick.

Justice for Caesar

On Friday the 3rd, a Department of Natural Resources officer (game warden, conservation officer, whatever name you want to give him) pulled up and knocked on our door. We figured he had information so with excitement, Brandy answered the door asking if he knew anything about the pig. The man responded “Actually, I am responsible for the missing pig…” Not knowing what he meant, we asked. His answer being, “He came out of the woods at me running at a trotting pace and I felt threatened so I shot and killed him”. Jaws dropped in disbelief, tears and anger flew. Not very nice things were said (as someone would expect when you tell them you just murdered their family pet for no reason at all).

The man then began to change his story to “I was following orders” rather than the lie he first told about Caesar running out of the deep snow woods and charging him. (Caesar was about 15″ tall with legs that are about 6″ long, 30lbs. Not much bigger than a Boston Terrier.. can you see an animal of that geometry charging through the snow or being a threat at all?.. not to mention the man was in his TRUCK! ) So I knew he had no true remorse for what he did. Pulling the trigger without thinking or identifying the target as an officer with 15 years experience. He was several feet off of our property line and right next to a “Safety Zone” sign, also very very close to our house with our family and animals . I asked for his body and he told me that we could not have him and that he is going to be sent to the USDA for testing like a wild rabid animal! We cant even have the poor baby’s body to lay at rest on our property that he loved. I got his superior’s information and had him leave.

As you see we are in a horrible situation. We are begging for the body back so we can lay the poor baby to rest. We have a family pet murdered and no answers. We are contacting attorneys and state officials seeking representation and answers. There are many horror stories out there of pets being wrongfully murdered by people that have no heart and should not have the authority to make that decision. To make a true difference so no one ever has to go through this kind of pain and the poor animals have a fair chance at life, we need as much publicity as possible. We need the right people to see and enough of them so this doesnt get swept under the carpet like so many before. We want to make a different. Doing so is not going to be cheap. We are here asking for funding to help our fight:
-We need to fight to get his body back so we can get our own necropsy (animal autopsy) done so we can prove that he was shot in cold blood and not actually charging him.
-We plan on fighting the Department of Natural Resources and whoever else it takes to get laws changed on these types of things. They need to be held accountable for their own actions. It will not be a short battle, but we are not going to give up.
-We want to ensure that current officers are trained further so they are able to tell the difference between a threat and a pet. We want to fight to get rid of the ideas of free shooting of pigs that they were cruel enough to put into action. (In Marquette County where we live, in the last 4 years, there has been one sighting of a wild pig, and he was causing no trouble. Just being a wild free animal is enough for the DNR to want them all dead. This is not right.)
Attorney costs will start piling up very soon and we need your help to make this difference. Every bit counts. Anything above the attorney costs will be put toward the effort of changing these cruel pointless laws and the retraining of the people put in charge of maintaining our precious outdoors. Change is a necessity.
Please help our cause!
Thank all of you very much for the support.

Interesting enough I was at a meeting last week in which a representative from the Attorney General’s office told a group of us on Thursday, that it is the Michigan Attorney General’s job to defend the DNR when it is sued. Being concerned I asked “who defends us?” The response was we need to hire I own attorneys. So tax dollars pay for the DNR to be defended and “We the People” need to help Caesar’s family, because the DNR has an unlimited budget for legal fees. Meet me under the liberty shares this family’s story to shed light on why standing for liberty is important. If we do not stand for others, there will be no one to stand for us!

We the People…Merry Christmas

A few months ago I was on the phone with my sister and I received a God nudge. If you have had one, you know what I am talking about. I had an idea to give out baskets to my Uncle’s mission Matthew’s House for Christmas. The great thing about God’s nudges is that if you obey He works out the rest.Matthew's house

My sister called my aunt in September and shared the idea and asked how many families to expect for the upcoming holiday. 40 families…40 baskets…and a bunch of stuff to fill them. As the months went on we picked up items and received donations through family and friends. Donations always seemed to come in when we feared this project was too big for us.

matthew's house

Instead of games, our family got together and made crafts to fill the baskets with love. One of my aunts knitted 13 hats. A woman at my Bible study, almost weekly, gave me baskets she bought at Salvation Army. Family arrived at our Christmas party early to drop off even more donations and help pack up 28 baskets.

matthew's house

My sister and I met up this past weekend to finish up the rest…we planned that there was 6 baskets to finish up, my sister found 12 more in her basement (don’t you love when God has a sense of humor). At the end we had exactly 40 baskets!!!

matthews house

My Uncle said the baskets were a big hit at the Matthew’s House Christmas Party. I encourage you to act on those God nudges, because it is so fulfilling watching Him work through everyone around you. If you are looking to support a charity this year please consider Matthew’s house, Merry Christmas!!!

13 Things Mentally Strong People Avoid… list written by Amy Morin

I made a video, inspired by a list 13 things mentally strong people avoid, written by Amy Morin.

Amy Morin wrote this list of attributes that she observed within patients that were more successful in treatment…

1. They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves

Mentally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn’t always easy or fair.

2. They Don’t Give Away Their Power

They don’t allow others to control them, and they don’t give someone else power over them. They don’t say things like, “My boss makes me feel bad,” because they understand that they are in control over their own emotions and they have a choice in how they respond.

3. They Don’t Shy Away from Change

Mentally strong people don’t try to avoid change. Instead, they welcome positive change and are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is inevitable and believe in their abilities to adapt.

4. They Don’t Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control

You won’t hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams. Instead, they focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes, the only thing they can control is their attitude.

5. They Don’t Worry About Pleasing Everyone

Mentally strong people recognize that they don’t need to please everyone all the time. They’re not afraid to say no or speak up when necessary. They strive to be kind and fair, but can handle other people being upset if they didn’t make them happy.

6. They Don’t Fear Taking Calculated Risks

They don’t take reckless or foolish risks, but don’t mind taking calculated risks. Mentally strong people spend time weighing the risks and benefits before making a big decision, and they’re fully informed of the potential downsides before they take action.

7. They Don’t Dwell on the Past

Mentally strong people don’t waste time dwelling on the past and wishing things could be different. They acknowledge their past and can say what they’ve learned from it. However, they don’t constantly relive bad experiences or fantasize about the glory days. Instead, they live for the present and plan for the future.

8. They Don’t Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over

Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their behavior and learn from their past mistakes. As a result, they don’t keep repeating those mistakes over and over. Instead, they move on and make better decisions in the future.

9. They Don’t Resent Other People’s Success

Mentally strong people can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life. They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.

10. They Don’t Give Up After the First Failure

Mentally strong people don’t view failure as a reason to give up. Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.

11. They Don’t Fear Alone Time

Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

12. They Don’t Feel the World Owes Them Anything

Mentally strong people don’t feel entitled to things in life. They weren’t born with a mentality that others would take care of them or that the world must give them something. Instead, they look for opportunities based on their own merits.

13. They Don’t Expect Immediate Results

Whether they are working on improving their health or getting a new business off the ground, mentally strong people don’t expect immediate results. Instead, they apply their skills and time to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time.
This basic principles need to be relearned to generations that were never taught the real meaning of strength!

We the people…No longer possible…

Why do I constantly hear it is no longer possible for kids to buy themselves a car, or pay for college? Now, as parents, we are told to save up for their car and their college and to invest in their future. I love my child, but I do not think this is what will make him be successful. Kids will just start waiting for help and not try to do things themselves.

When I first planned to talk about this subject, I was going to talk about how I saved for a car and bought it myself, this car was the one that lasted me through college, that I had multiple jobs in college and graduated without paying any interest in student loans. But, it just became a bragging story.

I have a better to story to tell. One of a young man doing what I did 10 years ago. His parents had the money to buy him a car, and gave him everything he wanted. These parents pulled themselves up with their boot straps and wanted to teach their child how to work for what you have. He first earned money by going to his neighbors and detailed their cars. Then he got himself a job he could ride his bike to. Then, this young man worked there after school and homework, weekends, and holidays. He then was hired full-time through the summer. That is when I meet him at my father’s company.
His parents had him pay for the cost of their car insurance increase when he was put on it. Oh that was on an Audi, and a 16 year old on a car like that is not cheap. He pays for what he does on the weekends. He was still able to save and get himself a car.

When I meet this young man and heard his story it made me happy. To know that a kid can still buy a car, and can still save up for college. Only if the parents push them and do not tell them they cannot.
