Senators Need To Act on Priorities

A judge resigns from FISA. Very adolescent behavior if you ask me. President Bush was elected by a majority of the citizens to make the tough decisions necessary to protect our nation. The judge seems to feel he is in a position to second guess the CIC and is therefore more powerful. Since he was not given the opportunity to have the president ask his permission, he now picks up his toys and leaves. I am tired of judges who place themselves above the wishes of the majority whether ruling on a local. state or federal matter. I am more fearful of a runaway judiciary than I am of a chief executive exercising authority over our nation during what is a limited term in office. My right to privacy which may at one time or another be infringed to protect our country is far less fear provoking than knowing the local government could decide they like the location of my home or church and can therefore force me to leave what I hold dear to allow a developer to create a greater tax base. Let the congress get their priorities straight. We are at war and need the provisions of the Patriot Act to protect us. Listening in on a conversation between terrorists and someone in this country is not that important to me. I want protection from terrorists. Our country needs to use every means to achieve that goal.

Liberty to Remain Free and Alive

This is my civil liberty. When terrorism wants to take from me the right to live in freedom, I expect the government to do everything it possibly can to safeguard my life and liberty. Terrorists and those who cooperate with them do not deserve the protection of our laws. If my personal telephone calls or Emails should be listened to or read, this is of no significance to me. Let the government use all of its technologies to protect America first of all. If those who scream the loudest about loss of our civil liberties are so afraid of the government knowing about their reading habits and their communications, I have to wonder what they are hiding. The New York Times has not done any favor to our nation by announcing how the government is able to track down terrorists among us. The NY TIMES is selling out our nation in order to sell a few more papers. The Times is AIDING and ABETTING the terrorists.

For those on the government payroll who are leaking this information which hurts our nation, you deserve to be tried for TREASON and incarcerated in solitary confinement for the rest of your miserable lives. Americans placed their trust in you, paid you well and expected loyalty to our nation. You are worse than the misguided Islamofascists since you at one time pledged loyalty to The USA. Playing political games with our national security angers and disgusts me.

Thankfully, we have some leaders who have done all in their power to safeguard our nation. They deserve our appreciation instead of condemnation.

Americans Can Learn From Iraqis

Mohammed writes, "Me and my friends were sitting discussing 'who's best for Iraq?' and the reasons on which each one of us based his/her opinion. I was seeing a drastic change in the sense of the historic responsibility we shoulder.
I see my friends call their friends and acquaintances encouraging them to vote for this candidate or that list and putting effort in convincing them with this or that idea."

I cannot help but think that if more Americans truly evaluated candidates as to who is best for the USA, we might have more competent people in Congress. We might elect true statesmen instead of voting a party line.

Mohammed goes on to say,"I’ll go and vote tomorrow and I will be adding one more brick to the building.
I’m very proud of my nation for it didn’t surrender in spite of all what it’s been through; this nation is fighting, deciding, challenging, falling and rising and trying to learn."

Evacuees Sue To Extend Hotel Plan

Evacuees Sue To Extend Hotel Plan: "Evacuees' attorneys want a temporary order extending the hotel program, which has cost $350 million so far and housed 85,000 families at its peak. They say that FEMA has failed to provide aid to many who qualify and that information on aid has been slow to reach those who need it most."

Perhaps I am a grinch but I wonder just how long the federal government needs to support the victims of Katrina. How many families across the USA have met tragedy of one type or another that left them without a home or money in the bank. Were all of these people housed then by the federal government for four months? I donated to Katrina relief because the plight of the people truly concerned me. I was more than willing to lend a helping hand to meet the needs for food, water and shelter. Millions of people helped and gave services, shelter and money to buy essentials. The federal government gave two thousand dollars to victims along with the shelter and food. Agencies provided shelter, medical care, clothing and helped many in various ways. Now, four months later we see attempts to sue for continued provision of housing. Have they not yet been able to find work or looked for housing if they receive the government payments they lived on before Katrina. I realize this was a devastating storm, but when does self reliance begin and the dependence on others end? The ill and infirm may need continued assistance, but I think those with reasonable health should be able to provide for themselves. Am I a grinch?

Put an End to Architectural Treason

A. M. Siriano has made it easy to let the "powers that be" know that we do not want a memorial to the terrorists who attacked passengers on Flight 93. Click on the link below, fill in your name, email address and click to forward your concerns. Let us honor those patriots who died preventing the terrorists from accomplishing their goal of distruction.

"December 02, 2005 04:32 The tireless Alec Rawls of Error Theory dissects the redesign of the Flight 93 Memorial, which was supposed to remove everyone's concern that it was a shrine to Islam. Alas, those rotten New Left lowlifes at Paul Murdoch Architects are at it again, and it stinks to high heavens. It still is a memorial to our enemies, perhaps even more so. Read the evidence here and get very angry.

It is time for some letter-sending again, so I have set up a new one that will go to

Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton, who has the power to stop this nonsense;
Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO), who stepped up to the plate when this first came to light;
Christopher Martin, the PR man for the Memorial;
Flight 93 Memorial Superintendent, who must be retarded;
The White House, because the Prez should know;
Vice President Dick Cheney�ditto;
Paula Reed Ward, a journalist following this story;
Paul Murdoch Architects, who should be kicked out of the country;
Somerset County Chamber of Commerce, who will be ill-served by an angry America.

Please add your name and click away. Let these people know that America has had enough! "

Redesigned Flight 93 memorial still an Islamo-fascist shrine

Alec Rawls writes a very comprhensive critique of the Flight 83 Memorial as redesigned. Read this well thought out post and then consider writing to the National Park Service to demand a memorial worthy of the passengers who fought back.LINK
My own response:

National Park Service
109 West Main Street, Suite 104
Somerset, PA 15501-2035

Dear Sir:

Please, please reconsider the design of the flight 93 memorial.

This new design is not an improvement and continues to honor the terrorists and
demean the sacrifices made by the bravery of the passengers who fought back.

A memorial should not honor the Islamofacists who wanted to destroy Americans and
architecture in Washington. Get rid of the red crescent, arc, circle or whatever term is currently in vogue. Get rid of the red trees.

The memorial is to recognize the bravery of the passengers and will be paid for by Americans. It will be maintained by Americans via our taxes which support the
National Park Service.

Get rid of the designer and select someone who understands American patriotism.

If a memorial cannot be designed to exclude any possible connotation of honor to Islam,
just leave the hole in the ground alone. That will remind visitors of what happened and who the heroes were. I completely reject the right of Islam to be represented since it was the distorted view of Islam that led the terrorists to pursue their goals.
