  1. TREY: JUST BOUGHT YOUR BOOK: “FANTASTIC” IS THE BEST TERM I CAN FIND TO DESCRIBE MY ADMIRATION OF YOUR WISDOM AND EXPERIENCE.

WE NEED YOUR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE AND POSSIBLE LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OBTAIN FURTHER “FUNDING”. IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR YOU TO LEAVE HOME.

  9. So you say your math skills are nothing to brag about . How is it that Congress gets a very nice retirement and benefits after just six years ? Is there any other job in the US with better or equivalent benefits ?

  10. Congress man Gowdy: I’m now 87 yrs old living in Las Vegas, Nev
    I see your program every sunday. Todays Sunday night in America 13 feb 22 program was wonderfully accurate.
    I am a Vietnam Vet and I was drafted 1958. My father was an officer with Admiral Nimitz from Dec 7, 1941.. I was 6 yrs old and my 4 children couldn’t believe I remembered those times with such clarity. I’m t remembered on dec 7 1941 running down the streets in NY city to my grandparents house.. I didn’t know then why everyone was running.. I remember the blackouts at night, the lines of men and women joining the military, my mother taking me to the garment industry to make uniforms,, all my relatives working in war plants, my aunt telling general Doolittle to get off the tar mat because the New Bromberg needed to leave the factory.. sh said he saluted het and thanked her..
