"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

My Thanks

I love this country. When I see the flag flapping in the wind I still get emotional. Each day that the flag continues to fly over my home I am reminded of those who have made that possible.

To all the veterans of the United States Armed Forces~ thank you.



The Double Nickel Farm is proud that three generations of our family have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. It truly is the least that a family can do for a land that has given us so much. I say this as the daughter, wife, sister, and mother of the most incredible men that one could ever know.

p.s Son we love you so much
