DameronDigestSmr2012-THUMBSStockton’s Dameron Hospital employee suspended for ‘God Bless America’

My wife received this story in an email last night from AFA.  It made my blood boil!

As the Domain Registrant and Webmaster of Conservative Watch News I am really motivated to write a story wrap around for my web news sites.  This story is personal and my personal exercise of Free Speech.  May God bless and help this brave Veteran, Boots Hawks for his service and his bravery in standing up for truth and freedom of speech.

Nothing angers me more than the direction our nation is going. It’s bad enough that my home state of California is turning it to a socialist liberal progressive cesspool.

My wife and I, along with our two grown children are native Californians.  So, when it comes to my home town this is now personal.

We conservatives knew, before Obama was elected in 2008 that nationalized health care was part of his agenda.  It’s been the agenda of the left for God knows how long. We knew that when government controls health care the can control all aspects of your life.  We are being led as fools towards, as Mark Levin call it, a Utopian government (Ameritopia) that will control everything they can.

When you realize that this is full blown Socialism, even Marxism, you may not really like it.  The freedoms you once knew will no longer be there.

Now, in light of the liberal lies, deception and recklessness that is coming from Washington, D. C., it’s time to STAND UP for PATRIOTISM!  It’s time to call for a momentous effort back to FREEDOM, back to LIBERTY!

The liberal progressive leftist minority is trying to slip Socialism (which will eventually lead to Communism) under our Constitutional Republic as Founded in 1776-1791.  I believe the direction this nation is going is dead wrong.  They are trying to destroy our economy using a Columbia University Professors’ Cloward and Piven.

These professors, in the faculty lounges and through their committees came up with their tactic to destroy a nation by driving it’s economy to bankruptcy.  You have been duped by the left with lies and tactics from Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”  Bankruptcy: does that sound familiar, Stockton?  Does a $17 Trillion deficit make sense?

President Obama has been hiding this nefarious agenda behind the complicit liberal left media for more than the entirety of his presidency. Many of the spending laws and regulations that his administration have placed upon us have helped this president become the biggest spending administration in the history of our nation. The damage that has been done by this PROGRESSIVE LEFT AGENDA may not be reconciled for a long time, especially for those whom Rush Limbaugh calls the “low information” voters or citizens.

My late father, Augustin DeSoto, Sr., was a veteran of World War II.  According to some people, that’s the last real war to defend freedom.  D-Day at Omaha Beach on the shores of Normandy taught my dad how much freedom cost. He personally witnessed the terror and carnage of war and taught us, his children, what he went through in that awful theater of war.  By the Grace of God my dad survived that battle, but became a POW missing in action (MIA) until the end of the war in 1945.  There is nothing that could ever take that away from the heroism of my father and the legacy he has left on my family.

All of our wars have been fought by brave soldiers who sometimes put their lives on the line for freedom.  Notwithstanding, I believe all of our War Veterans deserve honor, especially the story about the Veteran working at Dameron Hospital in Stockton, California that is the center of this story that follows from AFA – OneNewsNow.  His story will make national news.

The political correctness that is mainly coming from the LEFT has gone too far.  It’s the LIBERAL PROGRESSIVES through a non-workable socialist agenda that have subtly and slowing been destroying our nation to the core. We must do whatever we can to stop this ugly momentum.

It’s OK to say “God bless America” and “In God We Trust” or even “God bless you” and “Merry Christmas” … they are not just words or a cliche, they are REALITY!  We who remain strong in patriotism and Faith must stand up for what is RIGHT.

Thanks to AFA for bringing up this story from my home town, Stockton, CA:

A retired military veteran was placed on administrative leave after his employer denied his right to display “God Bless America” with his e-mail signature. The veteran, Boots Hawks, was asked to remove the statement from his signature block by his employer, Dameron Hospital, in Stockton, California.

When he said he wanted to obtain legal counsel about his rights, he was placed on leave for insubordination.

“Here we are right after Veterans Day recognizing individuals like this veteran, who fought to defend freedom and liberty for our country,” said Hawks’ attorney, Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), “being punished simply because he wanted to have the display ‘God Bless America’ on his own email signature block.”

Hawks returned to his job after Veterans Day to find his computer password suspended and lock combinations changed.

“No employee should ever be punished and disciplined for a patriotic statement like ‘God Bless America,’ and unfortunately this is exactly what this hospital decided to do,” Dacus told OneNewsNow.com.

PJI sent a strongly worded letter to supervisors reminding the hospital that Hawks has been a dedicated employee for 10 years and even earned “Employee of the Year” for his work.

Since then, Dameron Hospital has cleared Hawks of insubordination, but continues to ban him from using “God Bless America” with his signature.


Contact Dameron Hospital president Lorraine Auerbach today and urge her to drop the hospital’s anti-American attitude by allowing employees to openly express their patriotism.
