A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

R.I.P. Staff Sgt. Richard J. Jordan

Army Staff Sgt. Richard J. Jordan
Died March 16, 2010 serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom

29, of Tyler, Texas; assigned to 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas; died March 16 in Mosul, Iraq, of injuries sustained during a vehicle roll-over.

(The following was taken from of Mar. 20, 2010) HARRISON TWP. - Family members of a 29-year-old Fort Bliss, Texas, soldier with ties to Michigan who died after a vehicle rollover while serving in Iraq said Friday they hope that the U.S. can soon end the war.

Family of Staff Sgt. Richard J. Jordan held a news conference in Macomb County's Harrison Township, where he lived with his 26-year-old wife, Jennifer.

She told reporters she wants "all our troops to come home" safely.

"I don't want another wife, another mom and dad, another brother to go through this," she said.

The soldier's parents, Richard and Kimberly Jordan of New Boston, agreed.

"We don't want to see any more troops coming home in a box," Richard Jordan said. "This is the most devastating experience I've had."

The Defense Department said Jordan died Tuesday of his injuries from the crash in Mosul. The agency listed a hometown of Tyler, Texas, but his family said he had been an Army recruiter in Detroit before going to Iraq.

As a recruiter, he was not required to deploy to Iraq but volunteered to do so to make a contribution for his country, The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reported. He left for Iraq in November.

"He loved being in the Army," his father said. "That was his life."

Richard Jordan had two daughters, ages 9 and 2.

"He had an infectious smile," his sister-in-law, Carin Poole told The Detroit News on Thursday. "He was loving, fun and kind."
