PLACE:  Hickory Gardens     DATE:  June 24 2013   TIME:  5:00 P.M.

Come to enjoy the fellowship, good food, and a productive meeting.  We will have information about out Picnic (inside not outside).  Because of the storm, I did not attend the June 24th meeting.  I would have told you that our indoor picnic has been scheduled for September 15 at Biaggi’s Ristoranti Italiano @ 5195 Utica Ridge Road in Davenport, Iowa.  The time is 5:00 p.m.  You MUST make reservations or you may not have a seat at the table!!!


When we vote we put our faith and trust in those we elect to office.  Today, we know that some of these people disregard the “Oath” they take and violated your rights under the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The revelations by a whistleblower and some of the media has exposed spying upon a vast number of citizens of this country is most alarming.  For those who have read Orwell’s 1984 it has come to pass.  We are not safe from the spying of our Government in the safety of our own home.  An abuse of power greater than anything we have known in the History of the United States.   I can tell you I am concerned and you should be also.  We must demand Congressional investigations be conducted.  The Speaker of the U.S House of Representatives has indicated that if all of this spying is true that people need to go to jail.  The leaders of this spying need to be put in jail!  Elected officials who have been involved need to be removed from office.

Every veteran needs to write the Speaker and ask him to do what he said.  We need to call our two Senators and Congressmen to start action.  I believe we have a legal right to be safe in our homes.  Amendment IV (1791) James Madison wrote the following:  “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, house, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be search and the persons or things to be seized.”  Madison said it then and it means the same today!
