In Remembrance September 11, 2001

Today is a day of remembrance for those who died at the hands of militant terrorists whose minds are so filled with hatred they would rather see us dead, than learn to be peaceful and co-exist. Those who died gave the ultimate sacrifice for being American. We CANNOT forget this. We CANNOT forget these terrorists who want to pull off another attack greater than what we saw on September 11, 2001.

  • Terrorists want to see us die.
  • Terrorists do not care if you like George Bush or if you hate George Bush.
  • Terrorists have been given the authority by Islamic clerics to kill 2,000,000 children and in America
  • Like the Terrorists of 9/11/2001 who trained to be airline pilots, todays terrorists are training to be school bus drivers.
  • Terrorists do not care if you are an elephant or an ass. They want to kill you.
  • Terrorists do not care if you have a nice house, a nice car or a closet full of designer clothes. They want to kill you.
  • Politicians who are only concerned with getting re-elected or destroying anyone who gets in your way. They want to kill you.


The following video is a moving tribute to those who lost their lives and a call for those who are here today to be vigilant and remember that we are a target, we have been and we will continue to be. It may be difficult to watch or think about, but we must NEVER FORGET THESE ATTACKS AGAINST US.

The following essay was written the day after we were so brutally attacked on our soil by the same enemies we still fight today. Here is a link to this essay

September 12, 2001

Today as we wake, the reality of the destruction we witnessed yesterday digs deeper into our minds, hearts, and souls. The events that unfolded on our country’s soil have given us an unexpected example of how little everything else means. Monday night we watched our favorite TV show, played our favorite video game, or ate our favorite night time snack…we said our goodnight’s and our I love you’s to the ones we cherish. Tuesday morning we made it in to work grumbling about our jobs, credit cards, and bad cell phone service. Around 9am co-workers began to spread news of a plane that crashed into the World Trade Center. Wow, we thought what could have caused this? Then the reports came in that a second plane had also hit the WTC. At this point the stark reality began to cross our minds that something was dreadfully wrong. As reports began to flood TV and radio stations that we were under terrorist attack…..WHAT? We are the United States of America, this can’t be happening here! These were the thoughts that went through many Americans minds. The report of the plane crashing into the Pentagon all but concluded that Our America…”Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” was under foreign attack. Suddenly, our very lives were changing right before our eyes. Attacking the WTC was an attack on all nations who considered it to be a symbol of freedom for the world. The attack on our Pentagon was an attack on The United States Of America. The Pentagon represents the backbone of our nation’s defense. The reaction of our country was that of shock, which throughout the day slowly turned to that of anger. These terrorists had taken our pride and our fearlessness away, but only long enough to recognize what had happened. Today we return to work and school…in some cases, not because we want to…but because we HAVE to. We don’t have to because our boss tells us we do. We must continue on to show these people that they cannot take away THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA. We will not let cowards such as these people break our spirit. I Love this country and I am sure everyone else out there does too! Today we must return to our lives with a renewed understanding that the small thing are even smaller when put into the perspective that we all now possess. We as Americans need to stand strong for The Country that we love….Democrats, Republicans, Black, White, Male, Female…….. we should put aside petty issues and understand that we are vulnerable when WE let ourselves become so. Be strong America stand up for your country, protect your loved ones, protect your friends and neighbors, if we all do this we can protect AMERICA!…If you don’t have one, go get an American flag and display it with pride!!

A Day To Pause, Honor and, Remember

On this, the day we observe the founding of freedom in our country, it is important to remember that freedom comes at a cost. Without our brave soldiers, who are fighting now, those soldiers who have fought and those who have given all, we would have no freedom.

Without those who are willing to fight and willing to put up with hatred and criticism fired along with bullets in their direction, there would be no freedom to protect.

Without those that have died for you and me, there would be no America to protect.

 In honor of and rememberance of those who protect me and those who have sacrificed their very lives, thank you!

Honoring Our Military

With our service men and women putting their lives on the line day in and day out for our country, it can be easy to take what they do for us, for granted. It is a shame really. I feel that we live in dangerous times and at any moment, like September 11, 2001, our lives can be changed forever. Some of you may feel the same way. It is important to remember our military men and women who have, so graciously put their lives on the line to protect America.

It saddens me to hear our elected officials denigrate these fine people by politically motivated comments that seem as if they come from nowhere like a drive by shooting, or a homicide bomber. Sen. John Kerry told us that if we were stupid, we would get stuck in Iraq. Sen. Dick Durbin compared our troops to nazis and communists. These kinds of comments cast a cloud over the armed forces that the soldiers do not deserve and no politician should be allowed to prepare themselves for re-election by speaking badly of them.

With the war on terror’s main front in Iraq, it is easy to forget about other troops who work and fight elsewhere to provide the blanket of security we all pull close. Our military is engaged in thousands of missions around the globe that keep America safe and help out those in need. I recently read an article about a squadron of American troops that is currently in Nicaragua, building medical and educational facilities for the people there.

 

“Almost 250 U.S. military members, under the lead of the 820th Expeditionary Red Horse Squadron out of Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., in conjunction with the Nicaraguan government, are scheduled to build a two-room schoolhouse in San Martin de la Calera and a five-room medical clinic in Buena Vista. They will also provide free medical care during three scheduled Medical Readiness Training Exercises and will donated a water well the 820th ERHS members built for Camp Red Horse to the town after the exercise.”

“Camp Red Horse Commander Lt. Col. Aaron Young praised the Nicaraguans’ hospitality and commended the Airmen’s, Soldiers’ and Marines’ hard work that has already poured into the community since Feb. 5. He closed out with expressing his expectations of his team – nothing less than excellence.”

“We’re making a huge impact,” he said. “For Red Horse, that’s our business, we do full-up construction. Once we leave Nicaragua, we’ll definitely impact the community and leave permanent structures that will benefit them for many years to come. Everybody is proud of being able to contribute and work together.”

These are the kind of stories that our media should present to the American people alongside those daily, if not hourly reports from Iraq. Without these kind of stories, one would almost think the media in this country had an agenda. I salute the 820th Red Horse squadron and all of the troops who are under it’s command. You all do so much that America can be proud of and we are. Thank you.

Hillary Clinton, The Convenient Anti-Racist

Hillary

During a campaign visit to South Carolina, Senator Clinton announced that she would like to see the Confederate battle flag removed from the Statehouse grounds. The Associated Press article describing the event quoted Hillary,

“I think about how many South Carolinians have served in our military and who are serving today under our flag and I believe that we should have one flag that we all pay honor to, as I know that most people in South Carolina do every single day,”

“I personally would like to see it removed from the Statehouse grounds,”

Knowing full well that the press in this country cannot be trusted to tell the whole story, it is with caution that I assume that Hillary did not say she wanted the flag to be taken down because it is represents the racism to many in this country. Then again, why should caution be used in assuming this? Hillary’s statements are classic Clinton excrement. Her statement shows the fake campaign promise nobility that she and the former excrement in chief are so good at. Clinton had the perfect chance to take a stand against the Confederate battle flag but decided that might be to polarizing and detrimental to her campaign. She chose to deny black people a true ally in the fight against the symbol of racism that flies in their faces everyday, just to not offend too many supporters (constituents) of the flag.

The funny thing is, it is nothing new. Hillary has been doing this for a long time now. She is after all, married to Bill Clinton. When Bill was the Governor of Arkansas his reaching out to African-Americans was over and above,

“In April 1985, Governor Bill Clinton signed Act 985 into law, making the birthdates of Martin Luther King Jr. (the preeminent leader of the civil-rights movement) and Robert E. Lee (the general who led the Confederate army) state holidays on the same day. Of course, the word “segregation” never passed Clinton’s considerable lips, but the (uncoded) message he was sending to certain of his white constituents could not have be clearer. His support for the Lee day seems as bad — if not worse — than a gaffe at an old man’s birthday party and Lott’s opposition to an MLK day.”

“Clinton had a Confederate flag-like issue of his own. Arkansas Code Annotated, Section 1-5-107, provides as follows:

(a) The Saturday immediately preceding Easter Sunday of each year is designated as ‘Confederate Flag Day’ in this state.

(b) No person, firm, or corporation shall display an Confederate flag or replica thereof in connection with any advertisement of any commercial enterprise, or in any manner for any purpose except to honor the Confederate States of America. [Emphasis added.]

(c) Any person, firm, or corporation violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined not less than one hundred dollars ($100) nor more than one thousand dollars ($1,000).”

This law existed on the books and in twelve years as Arkansas Governor, he never sought to have it repealed.

“Governor Clinton was among three state officials the NAACP sued in 1989 under the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965. “Plaintiffs offered plenty of proof of monolithic voting along racial lines, intimidation of black voters and candidates and other official acts that made voting harder for blacks,” the Arkansas Gazette reported December 6, 1989. It added: “the evidence at the trial was indeed overwhelming that the Voting Rights Act had been violated.”

“During his 12-year tenure, Governor Clinton never approved a state civil-rights law. However, he did issue birthday proclamations honoring Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. He also signed Act 116 in 1987. That statute reconfirmed that the star directly above the word “Arkansas” in the state flag “is to commemorate the Confederate States of America.” Arkansas also observed Confederate Flag Day every year Clinton served. The governor’s silence was consent.”

“Clinton praised Arkansas’ late Democratic senator J. William Fulbright, a notorious segregationist who opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. He also signed the Southern Manifesto, which denounced the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Brown vs. Board of Education school desegregation decision in 1954. Clinton called Fulbright “My mentor, a visionary, a humanitarian.”

All of this, yet The Democrat Party is silent, liberals are silent.

Hillary was always and is silent to racism that she sees and participates in because of the spineless silence she exhibits when presented with an opportunity to fight against it. The votes that giver her power mean more to her than, the pain and suffering of those who have been beaten down and torn by the reality of racism.
