"The Dad I Never Had"
     a poem by Mark Hall

The Dad I Never Had

To both my sons I love so dear I really want to say,  
The gift that you've given me,
is more than just Okay.

The bond that we have made,
Is a love only we can share.
The joy that you have given me,
is love that makes me care.

As a boy I always wanted a Dad to show me the right way.
To teach me how to throw a ball,
to teach me how to play.
A dad to pick me up,
every time I'd fall.
A man that I could count on,
to love me most of all.

A dad who would love me,
just like I love you today.
Back then I wished he loved me,
every single day.
A love that would fulfill me.
That's what I used to pray.

As time went on I learned to be,
the man I am today,
A man with out the help of a man,
the man that would not stay.    
A Dad that I could love, a dad that would belong.
To be there when I needed him,
to help me grow up strong.

But that was never meant to be and it felt so bad.
So I just smiled and changed my prayer to be,
The Dad I Never Had.
I thank both you boy's, you think of me and take me as your DAD
Because of you my life's fulfilled,
now life's no longer sad.
For that I'll always love you, you made me very proud.
You gave me all I wanted and that I'll shout out loud.

It's when you say I love you DAD that gives me such a smile.
A smile I never thought could be,
I've prayed for all the while.

To be the Dad I Never Had,
yes that is what I'd pray.
And now that you belong to me,
your love with me will stay.

That's why I thank you both,
on this Father's Day.
With the gift you gave me,
I no longer feel so bad.
I hoped to be just what you made me,
the Dad I Never Had.

A love much more than I deserve,
Is not all you did for me.
And so I want to thank you both,
for making me so glad,
It's what I really want to be,
The Dad I Never Had.

 Love Your Papa

2  Topics of Interest / General Discussion / Florida Representative Bill Posey once again proves his worth in salt on: September 18, 2009, 06:53:29 AM
Thank you Florida Representative Bill Posey

A friend of mine, Mike, a decorated veteran of the conflict in Viet Nam was bewildered by the bureaucracy he was up against with the department of Immigration and Naturalization. It seems the woman whom he had been married to for over 30 years was under orders for deportation as an illegal alien, he had been writing back and fourth to the D.I.N. for over two years.                                                             

Let me tell you something about Mike. Mike has been an inspiration to everyone who has known him; his outgoing and helpful nature made him a favorite son of our city and his bravery to the nation.     
He has worked at the auto body repair shop he has owned for over 25 years I have known him in downtown Kissimmee and provided an honest and professional service to the community.   
His wife had always been one of the most respectful people I have ever had the pleasure to have served as I was a waiter in a restaurant in downtown Kissimmee some years back. Always showing me respect as an equal, not a servant. This quality and the love of her adopted nation to me, more than qualified her for the honor of being accepted as an American citizen.                                     

After two long years of trials and tribulations, threats of deportation and just plain disrespect that was shown to this decorated veteran, Mike noticed you advertised you would be in his area to hear from the people you represent.                                                                       

He thought of contacting you Mr. Representative Bill Posey, as you more than any other legislator have been known continually travel though out your constitutes to hear their views and yes, complaints. He wished to ask why he was ignored by our government and to see if you could possibly help his situation. Unfortunately he was too late to get an appointment to see you in person on your limited visit to Kissimmee. 

So he had taken it upon himself to write your office. He immediately was introduced to a case worker and, to his surprise, he received a response in 3 short days and was issued a case number.                       
His thoughts were uplifted but still unsure as the experience he had received from bureaucracies in his previous attempts were less than helpful.
But to his utter joy your hard working staff under your supervision achieved the impossible, for only 6 day’s after his first contact with you Mike received a letter from The Dept. of Immigration and Naturalization informing him it was time, not to go over more paper work, but to his surprise it was an invitation to have his loving wife be sworn in as an American citizen. A privilege she all these years deserved and she now enjoys.
Her pride swells and for the first time since I have known Mike, this strong brave man who placed his life on the line for our country, well I could swear his eyes teared up. I just have to tell you this, Mikes’ words to me, “Bill Posey has done more for me than anyone in government had ever done before and even though I am a fervent Democrat Bill Posey will always have my vote”                                                                                 

Congressman Posey, I as another life long Democrat, knew there were several reasons I will always support you, this has just been one of them. May you continue to serve our nation in good health, may G/d Bless you and you’re hard working staff.

Barack Obama Lying About His Relationship With Zbigniew Brzezinski .............lied to Jews

After I viewed the Ultimate Jew I found this. What truly upsets me, is most of my fellow Jews in New York are so Liberal that they refuse to see the truth, it will bite my people again, just as we were bitten in 1930's Europe.
Just wait and see.
The only difference is this socialist administration will change the lives of all Americans, what religion you are will make no difference, just the fact that you believe in G/d will be enough to make you a target.
A Socialist society can not allow G/d and country.
Stalin and Lenin were not prejudice they just hated G/d and anyone who believed in him.

5  Topics of Interest / Health Care / This is the Health Care bill that will be up for vote on: July 30, 2009, 10:47:16 PM
I sent this email is to everyone in my mailing list.

You are important to me, or you would not be there.
Please read this, it’s not a chain email this is from me Mark  this is the a copy of the Health Care Bill up for consideration soon to be voted on.
My question is; does Obama want to kill us all?
That’s a thought and here is what congress is going to vote on.
The following link is the governments:
House Ways and Means Comity.   
 ‘‘America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009’’     
If you think it’s a fake site here is the site you can copy and paste in your search window.
Everyone will be covered, but to pay for it you will lose quality health care and trade it for an x-ray or 2, an aspirin, if it's not to expensive some cheap flue medicine, and be thankful for that. It will be illegal to get better coverage than what the government offers.
Once you are eligible for Medicare, that is age 62 or 65 depending on when you wish to retire, by Law your health care provider must give you classes in how to dehydrate yourself refuse nutrition and to make end of life more comfortable, they must teach you how to contact and receive the benefits from Hospice Care and they have to visit this consultation upon you every 5 years, yes that’s write every 5 years your doctor or provider, will by law have to teach you this bile. You don’t believe me? read page 425 of the ‘‘America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009’’.
Will you be able to keep your currant health plan offered by the provider you now have?
No matter what after 5 years from the date this bill goes into effect your plan will automatically convert to the only plan the government allows. See page 17 line11 paragraph A. if you think you are immune think again. Did you vote for this kind of reform, no more joint hip replacement, no more heart bypasses, no major medical procedures that would extend your life, the cut off age is when you are eligible for Medicare. And you know that lady Obama said should take the pill. The joke is Medicare won’t cover it. Do you think your coverage will not change? It will and automatically if not then within 5 years no more! Everybody goes! Unless you are a member of the government, then you’re covered for life. You will have no choice. Read the whole bill. If you don’t you will pay more than money you will pay with your life.
Do you have a Mother or Father say 60 years old maybe 55 or 57, maybe it’s you how old are you 40, 46, are you ready to let someone else tell you it’s time to quit.   
Its no joke this is the actual bill up in congress now!!!!!!!!!!
Write to your House Representative and your Senator now let them know you will vote them out if they pass this bill. Tell them you read it, and then ask them if they did. You can find out who represents you and links to contact them by going to and you do not have to be a member.
This is not a chain letter it is not a way to collect email addresses this letter is from Mark please read this letter and if you find it informative as I hope you will, pass it not just to 10 people but to everybody in your contact list. It’s up to us and nobody else. is a free information site, please visit the site if you wish, if not its okay but don’t sit there and do nothing.

I Remember Heshi

While growing up in N.Y. in a single parent home I was fortunate to have people that loved and cared about me, People like Heshi. He was my closest friend’s father, I called him Pops and I called his wife Moms, and their daughter was my closest confidante.

As an adolescent I had a small 65cc Honda motor cycle and would ride it in the back driveways of our apartment complexes, I did not have a license at 15 but Heshi would take the time and watch me ride and cheer me on.

And how did I repay him? Well one day while giving his daughter a ride I was showing off with no hands on the handle bars, this allowed me to pretend to grope at the girl behind me just to show my Pops what I could do with the girls. Now when I stopped and said, "See what I can do pops."

He did not smile he just said with a sigh, "That’s my daughter", his head went down almost to the point were his chin hit his chest he turned and went up to his apartment. You know I apologized even though it was not necessary, this loving man knowing teenagers and me; he had forgiven me as soon as he it happened. He even helped me write my final final English report on Horse Soldiers so I could graduate.

Nothing could change the fact I knew how I insulted him and hurt his feelings. To my dying day I will never forget the disappointment in his eyes. Heshi I am so very sorry and I pray for you often. Thank you for being there for me and the love you gave me.

Now it just so happens that Heshi had taken his daughter age then age 14 to the 1969 Mets game I think it was the World Series. And as I watched David Letterman the night he said what he did about Sarah Palins 14 year old little girl, in my mind I could not help but go back to when I was 15, I thought of how Heshi would have felt if David Letterman had made his remark about Heshi’s little girl at the game. Again I saw that same face, and I cried.

The fact is Letterman would not apologize, not with meaning. It was wrong and I do not believe that David Letterman would even lose one minute's sleep over it, I would say all he thought of is how can I degrade her some more. I was a kid and I realized how I hurt a man that was better then I ever will be, but Letterman is a fully grown adult with an audience of millions. You could even see the glee on his face; he enjoyed being a bully.

He must have been the kind of kid that made fun of the all the less fortunate kids just to embarrass them and get a laugh. Well I think Mr. Letterman is a coward and a manipulative intellectual moron.

Governor Palin should be and I am sure she is, very proud and a better parent then David ever could be. Can you see David caring enough to take his boy to a ball game? Give it up Dave, your nothing but a looser with a capital L. and I will never watch your show again. More importantly, I will not support your sponsors.
