Texas Spy: An Exclusive With Ralph Thomas


Ralph D. Thomas is from Texas and when you look at him you know it. He is passionate about his craft. His interests are high tech electronics for law enforcement, investigation and security. He is passionate about Native American culture and their heritage. He loves Jennifer Lopez and anything she sings. He’s a fan of The Rockford Files. old Westerns and American Idol. He is a fan of Clint Eastwood’s movies and, as one might suspect, a fan of James Bond and Mission Impossible. His favorite books include John Adams by David Mccullough (ArtChix likes anything Mr. Mccullough writes as well) and is somewhat of a scholar on the events surrounding the Kennedy Assassination. Ralph D. Thomas loves history and he loves his country. While he may not be fond of a particular president, he makes clear that his passion and respect for the institution of the Presdiency is far greater than any one man. Ralph D. Thomas is all-American. He’s about as American as American can get.

When you first meet Ralph Thomas, you are somewhat intimidated by the piercing eyes and the serious, “We’re comin’ to get ya” look on his face. He’s handsome, with his silver hair and Texas-cowboy style. One is drawn to him. You want to know him. You have to know him. But how does one do that? It is not as difficult as it appears. Thomas is lovable, funny and one of those people who will help anybody who is willing to work hard to achieve their dreams. He believes in dreams. The kind of dreams from which the “American Dream” is born. His faith in the founding principles of the country are as strong as any these days, if not stronger. And, quite simply, he loves people.

A Personal Statement About Jana Mashonee From Ralph Thomas
As many of you know, Barbara and I have always been passionate about Native Americans and Native American Culture and you have often heard me remark that Barbara is the best looking woman who is part Cherokee! Well folks we have developed a relationship with the people at Miss Molly Records who has a rising star that is a singer/songwriter and actress who is Native American from the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. Her name is Jana Mashonee. Jana has had a successful singing career in the Indian Music market and is now considered one of the top performers in that market. She is now breaking out of the Indian Music Market and going mainstream and we need your help and support to take Jana all the way to the top and watch music history made. This will be the first time in the history of music that a Native American makes it all the way. Please come and join us in this exciting trip to the stars by helping Jana. You can do that by stopping in at her web site and buying her CDs and songs as well as join her fan club and Facebook page. Come and join us in this great journey because Jana my friends is going all the way to the top! -Ralph
