President Bush selects Norman Mineta as Secretary of
Transportation. Although all of the terrorist attacks
were committed by Muslim men between 17 and 40 years
of age, Secretary Mineta refuses to allow profiling.
Does that sound like we are taking this thing
seriously? This is war! For the duration, we are going
to have to give up some of the civil rights we have
become accustomed to. We had better be prepared to!
lose some of our civil rights temporarily or we will
most certainly lose all of them permanently.
And don’t worry that it is a slippery slope. We gave
up plenty of civil rights during WWII, and immediately
restored them after the victory and in fact added many
more since then.
Do I blame President Bush or President Clinton before
No, I blame us for blithely assuming we can maintain
all of our Political Correctness, and all of our civil
rights during this conflict and have a clean, lawful,
honorable war. None of those words apply to war. Get
them out of your head.
Some have gone so far in their criticism of the war
and/or the Administration that it almost seems they
would literally like to see us lose. I hasten to add
that this isn’t because they are disloyal. It is
because they just don’t recognize what losing means.
Nevertheless, that conduct gives the impression to the
enemy that we are divided and weakening. It concerns
our friends, and it does great damage to our cause.
Of more recent vintage, the uproar fueled by the
politicians and media regarding the treatment of some
prisoners of war, perhaps exemplifies best what I am
saying. We have recently had an issue, involving the
treatment of a few Muslim prisoners of war, by a small
group of our military police. These are the type
prisoners who just a few months ago were throwing
their own people off buildings, cutting off their
hands, cutting out their tongues and otherwise
murdering their own people just for disagreeing with
And just a few years ago these same type prisoners
chemically killed 400,000 of their own people for the
same reason. They are also the same type enemy
fighters, who recently were burning Americans, and
dragging their charred corpses through the streets of
And still more recently, the same type enemy that was
and is providing videos to all news sources
internationally, of the beheading of American
prisoners they held.
Compare this with some of our press and politicians,
who for several days have thought and talked about
nothing else but the “humiliating” of some Muslim
prisoners — not burning them, not dragging their
charred corpses through the streets, not beheading
them, but “humiliating” them.
Can this be for real?
The politicians and pundits have even talked of
impeachment of the Secretary of Defense. If this
doesn’t show the complete lack of comprehension and
understanding of the seriousness of the enemy we are
fighting, the life and death struggle we are in and
the disastrous results of losing this war, nothing
To bring our country to a virtual political standstill
over this prisoner issue makes us look like Nero
playing his fiddle as Rome burned — totally oblivious
to what is going on in the real world. Neither we, nor
any other country, can survive this internal strife.
Again I say, this does not mean that some of our
politicians or media people are disloyal. It simply
means that they are absolutely oblivious to the
magnitude, of the situation we are in and into which
the Muslim terrorists have been pushing us, for many
Remember, the Muslim terrorists stated goal is to kill
all infidels! That translates into ALL non-Muslims –
not just in the United States, but throughout the
We are the last bastion of defense.
We have been criticized for many years as being
‘arrogant.’ That charge is valid in at least one
respect. We are arrogant in that we believe that we
are so good, powerful and smart, that we can win the
hearts and minds of all those who attack us, and that
with both hands tied behind our back, we can defeat
anything bad in the world!
If we don’t recognize this, our nation as we know it
will not survive, and no other free country in the
world will survive if we are defeated.
And finally, name any Muslim countries throughout the
world that allow freedom of speech, freedom of
thought, freedom of religion, freedom of the press,
equal rights for anyone — let alone everyone, equal
status or any status for women, or that have been
productive in one single way that contributes to the
good of the world.
This has been a long way of saying that we must be
united on this war or we will be equated in the
history books to the self-inflicted fall of the Roman
Empire. If, that is, the Muslim leaders will allow
history books to be written or read.
If we don’t win this war right now, keep a close eye
on how the Muslims take over France in the next 5
years or less. They will continue to increase the
Muslim population of France and continue to encroach
little by little, on the established French
traditions. The French will be fighting among
themselves, over what should or should not be done,
which will continue to weaken them and keep them from
any united resolve. Doesn’t that sound eerily
Democracies don’t have their freedoms taken away from
them by some external military force. Instead, they
give their freedoms away, politically correct piece by
politically correct piece.
And they are giving those freedoms away to those who
have shown, worldwide, that they abhor freedom and
will not apply it to you or even to themselves, once
they are in power.
They have universally shown that when they have taken
over, they then start brutally killing each other over
who will be the few who control the masses. Will we
ever stop hearing from the politically correct, about
the “peaceful Muslims”?
I close on a hopeful note, by repeating what I said
above. If we are united, there is no way that we can
lose. I hope now after the election, the factions in
our country will begin to focus on the critical
situation we are in, and will unite to save our
country. It is your future we are talking about! Do
whatever you can to preserve it.
After reading the above, we all must do this not only
for ourselves, but our children, our grandchildren,
our country and the world.
Whether Democrat or Republican, conservative or
liberal and that includes the Politicians and media of
our country and the free world!
Please forward this to any you feel may want, or NEED
to read it. Our “leaders” in Congress ought to read
There are those that find fault with our country, but
it is obvious to anyone who truly thinks through this,
that we must UNITE!

I know I have been away for a long time, but I was totally blogged out and after starting a new job, I was not able to blog as much as I have before.
But I will try and blog more often. I might not be able to blog every day, but I will at least try and blog once or twice a week.
Please give me some feedback.

I can only take it so long. I haven’t;t posted in a long time, but I am just so pissed off at the Left in our country that I just have to blog to vent my frustrations.
Here is a letter from am one of our heroes over in Iraq:
Mom,Be my voice. I want this message heard. It is mine and my platoonÂs to
the country. A man I know lost his legs the other night. He is in another
company in our batallion. I can no longer be silent after watching the
sacrifices made by Iraqis and Americans everyday.Send it to a congressman if
have to. Send it to FOX news if you have to. Let this message be heard
My fellow Americans, I have a task for those with the courage and
fortitude to take it. I have a message that needs not fall on deaf ears. A
vision the blind need to see. I am not a political man nor one with great
wisdom. I am just a soldier who finds himself helping rebuild a country that
helped liberate a couple years ago.I have watched on television how the
public questions why their mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters
and dying in a country 9000 miles away from their own soil.
Take the word of a
soldier, for that is all I am, that our cause is a noble
one. The reason we are
here is one worth fighting for. A cause that has been
the most costly and sought
after cause in our small span of existence on our
little planet. Bought in blood
and paid for by those brave enough to give
the ultimate sacrifice to obtain it.
A right that is given to every man,
woman, and child I believe by God. I am
talking of freedom.
word but yet countless words could never
capture itÂs true meaning or power.
ÂFor those who have fought for it, freedom
has a taste the protected will
never know.Â I read that once and it couldnÂt be
more true. ItÂs not the
average AmericanÂs fault that he or she is Âblind and
deafÂ to the taste of
freedom. Most AmericanÂs are born into their God given
right so it is all
they ever know. I was once one of them. I would even dare to
say that it
isnÂt surprising that they take for granted what they have had all
life. My experiences in the military however opened my eyes to the truth.
Ironically you will find the biggest outcries of opposition to our cause
from those who have had no military experience and havenÂt had to fight for
freedom. I challenge all of those who are daring enough to question such a
cause to come here for just a month and see it first hand. I have a
many voices would be silenced.
I watched Cindy Sheehan sit
on the PresidentÂs
lawn and say that America isnÂt worth dying for. Later
she corrected herself and
said Iraq isnÂt worth dying for. She badmouthed
all that her son had fought and
died for. I bet he is rolling over in his
Ladies and gentleman I ask
you this. What if you lived in a
country that wasnÂt free? What if someone told
you when you could have heat,
electricity, and water? What if you had no sewage
systems so human waste
flowed into the streets? What if someone would kill you
your government? What if you werenÂt allowed to watch TV,
connect to the
internet, or have cell phones unless under extreme censorship?
What if you
couldnÂt put shoes on your childÂs feet?
You need not to have a
understanding of the world but rather common sense to realize that it is
duty as HUMAN BEINGS to free the oppressed. If you lived that way would you
not want someone to help you????
The IraqiÂs pour into the streets to
us and when we liberated the cities during the war they gathered in
thousands to cheer, hug and kiss us. It was what the soldierÂs in WW2
experienced, yet no one questioned their cause!! Saddam was no better than
Hitler! He tortured and killed thousands of innocent people. We are heroes
here, yet AmericanÂs badmouth our President for having us
station here has a dozen or more memorials for
officers that were murdered
trying to ensure that their people live free.
These are husbands, fathers, and
sons killed every day. What if it were your
country? What would your choice be?
Everything we fight for is worth the
blood that may be shed. The media never
reports the true HEROISM I witness
everyday in the IraqiÂs. Yes there are bad
oneÂs here, but I assure you they
are a minuscule percent. Yet they are a number
big enough to cause worry in
this countryÂs future.I have watched brave souls
give their all and lose
thier lives and limbs for this cause. I will no longer
stand silent and let
the Âdeaf and blindÂ be the only voice shouting. Stonewall
said, ÂAll that I have, all that I am is at the service of the
these brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice, including your
Sheehan, I will shout till I can no longer. These men and women are

My fellow countrymen and women, we are not overseas for our
alone but also another. We are here to spread democracy and freedom to
who KNOW the true taste of it because they fight for it everyday. You can
see the desire in their eyes and I am honored to fight alongside them as an
Infantryman in the 101st Airborne.
Freedom is not free, but yet it is
everyoneÂs right to have. Ironic isnÂt it? That is why we are here. Though
will always have the skeptics, I know that most of our military will
this message. Please, at the request of this soldier spread this
message to all
you know. We are in Operation Iraqi Freedom and that is our
goal. It is a cause
that I and thousands of others stand ready to pay the
ultimate sacrifice for

no matter what country it
is! And after the world is free only then can we
hope to have peace.

And then we have this idiot Rep. John Murtha:
It’s time to bring them home,” said Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting
record), a decorated Korean War and Vietnam combat veteran, choking back
tears during remarks to reporters. “Our military has accomplished its
and done its duty.”
WTF!!!!!!!! We are giong to let Zarkawi (spelling?) take over
Iraq and from a Caliphate in the Middle
East and then destroy Israel. This is just the most idiotic thing I have
heard from a congresssman in a long time.
Now I don’t know exactly what happened to the republicans, but they have finally figured out that they are in power and they control congress.
It will be interesting to see what the Democrats will do. Are they goint to follow Moveon and the other leftists, or are they going to vote for what is best for America.
I think this is going to be a win/win for the Republicans. they finally got some balls and it will show the country who is out for the best of the country.
