Senator, it would be good if you or a staffer can keep tabs on what’s going on there in Palestine. You might wind up in the position of defending atrocious actions on the part of city law enforcement there. You REALLY need to know what’s going on. Corruption in a Small Town 2.0 has a lot of information. I’m trying to let people know so that everything can get settled one way or another. These delays are for the birds.

Please join me in honoring our Purple Heart heroes who have lost their lives or have been injured while serving our country. We will never forget their service and sacrifice. ... See MoreSee Less

We have 236 dog tags hanging in the museum in Rusk Heritage Center of Cherokee County, Texas -- all from Cherokee County -- WWI - WWII - Korea - Viet Nam. All who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. God Bless our military and keep them safe.

Larry Boggs received the purple heart while stationed in Vietnam. God Bless Him.

Cherokee County has many that have received Purple Hearts. We need to be 'Thankful' for them and other soldiers helping to keep USA a free country. 🇺🇸 🇨🇱

Amen

Blessings to each of them

💜💜💜✝️🇺🇸

Thank you for sharing!!!

Hi! Are you aware aliens walk among us? Are you aware aliens make some humans hear voices? No? Why not? Why haven't you seen them? Simple. They do not look like you would expect them to look. They do not look like the aliens that you would find on the movies. They look like humans. Your next door neighbor or someone at school could be aliens, but you would never know unless you knew what to look for. The act weird because aliens do mindsex all the time, which may lead to weird dancing or smiling all the time. Also, they hear your thoughts, so if someone who has their back turned toward you and you walk toward them and they look at you right away, then those people are aliens. Also, the aliens have infiltrated the government, the police, the news media and many other organizations, so be on the look out for them. Want to know for sure if you have found an alien? Well, aliens are not human on the inside. Have an x-ray done and find out. Keep in mind, aliens have infiltrated the hospitals too, so be sure to make sure none of the doctors doing the x-rays are aliens or they will just do a misdiagnosis and lie to you. Some of my neighbors are aliens. They have responded to my thoughts on several occasions. Try talking to everyone you see with you 'thoughts' and see if any respond by talking accidentally, children are especially easy to find as they are more careless than the adult aliens.
