Morgan's Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer

"Heavenly Father,
We come before you today
To ask your forgiveness and
To seek your direction and guidance.

We know Your Word says,
"Woe to those who call evil good"
But that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium
And reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and
Called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness
And called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn
And called it choice.
We have shot abortionists
And called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline
Our children and called it
Building self esteem.
We have abused power
And called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's
Possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air
With profanity and
Pornography and called it
Freedom of speech and expression.

We have ridiculed the time-
Honored values of our forefathers
And called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh, God,
And know our hearts today;
Cleanse us from every sin
And set us free.

Thanks our good friend Morgan for bringing us this gem! Happy Monday!

Terrorists Ecstatic With Dem Debate

Terrorists Ecstatic With Dem Debate
WND Editorial

Democratic presidential hopefuls flashing their anti-war credentials last night at a national debate by stating they would immediately withdraw from Iraq, encouraged Palestinian terrorist leaders here, who labeled the debate a victory for Iraqi insurgents and "resistance movements" throughout the world.

The debate was widely covered today by the Palestinian and pan-Arab media.
"We see Hillary (Clinton) and other candidates are competing on who will withdraw from Iraq and who is guilty of supporting the Iraqi invasion. This is a moment of glory for the revolutionary movements in the Arab world in general and for the Iraqi resistance movement specifically," said Abu Jihad, one of the overall leaders of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror organization.

I think democrats will do good if they will withdraw as soon as they are in power," he said.


Key Democrats Shun General Petraeus

Key Democrats Shun General Petraeus
By Jeffry Gardner

Not only is the war lost, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says, but two of his more influential colleagues in the debate don't even care to hear the Army's current assessment of the situation.

As if Reid's reckless remarks didn't do enough damage - no doubt lifting the spirits of al-Qaida and leftists from France to Hollywood - House Leader Nancy Pelosi and one of the biggest cheerleaders for bailing out of Iraq, Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, didn't even show up this week when the Army's top dog in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, provided his first report to congressional leaders since the troop increase.

Apparently the president's mind isn't the only one made up about war policy.
Historically, House speakers get to pass on such briefings. And Pelosi said later she'd talked with Petraeus before his briefing with Congress. But this wasn't the quarterly General Accounting Office's review of Social Security.

The war is the Democrats' sledgehammer, breaking all big matters into little ones by comparison, and in a town built on appearance, Pelosi and Murtha's absences deserve notice.


Remembering Daniel Pearl

Remembering Daniel Pearl

(Daniel Pearl (October 10, 1963 – February 22, 2002) was an American journalist who was kidnapped and murdered in Karachi, Pakistan. At the time of his kidnapping, Pearl had been investigating the case of Richard Reid the shoe bomber, and alleged links between Al Qaeda and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

In March 2007, at a closed military hearing in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed reportedly boasted that he had personally beheaded Pearl. A transcript of the hearing quotes Mohammed as saying: "I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan." Then he added, "for those who would like to confirm, there are pictures of me on the Internet holding his head.")

By Batya Dagan

A lamb is being caught in the thicket
trapped in the green was it there all this time
when Abraham bound his only son
the light of his eye the heart of his life
to the altar he built because so commanded his God
Abraham does not ask
does not wonder and just does
for God knows and he does not know.

He only knows that his heart is exploding
that his veins are freezing
that his mouth is full of ashes
then God's voice is being heard
a voice sweeter that honey
clearer than a running brook
and the voice says to Abraham
leave the child alone.

Here in the thicket is your sacrificial lamb
my son my beloved the father of my nation
all I gave you you gave me
never will I try you again
but the sweet voice of God was not heard
when Daniel was bound
and there was no lamb in the thicket
only death was caught in the green.

I am a Jew says Daniel
and to this altar he was tied
and on this altar he was sacrificed
and all of Israel is crying
and all of Israel is mourning
the loss of Daniel
Daniel who stood the test
and gave his God all that God gave him.

Defeat Accomplished

Congress Clears Iraq Bill, Veto Awaits

In a bold wartime challenge to President Bush, the Democratic-controlled Congress cleared legislation Thursday to begin withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. by Oct. 1 with a goal of a complete pullout six months later. The White House dismissed the legislation as "dead before arrival."

The 51-46 Senate vote was largely along party lines, and like House passage a day earlier it underscored that the war's congressional opponents are far short of the two-thirds majority needed to override a Bush veto.

Democrats marked Thursday's final passage with a news conference during which they repeatedly urged Bush to reconsider his veto threat. "This bill for the first time gives the president of the United States an exit strategy" from Iraq, said Rep. David Obey of Wisconsin.
The legislation is "in keeping with what the American people want," added Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

The White House was unmoved. "The president's determined to win in Iraq. I think the bill that they sent us today is mission defeated," said deputy press secretary Dana Perino. "This bill is dead before arrival."


The Clinton Crack-Up

The Clinton Crack-Up
By Bill Steigerwald

Conservative columnist and author R. Emmett Tyrrell has not really spent half his career reporting scandals about Bill and Hillary Clinton. It just seems that way.

The American Spectator, the conservative monthly magazine he founded in 1967, broke some of the earliest stories about "Troopergate," "Travelgate," and "Filegate" in the early 1990s. And two of his books, 1997's Boy Clinton and 2003's Madam Hillary, were unflattering but best-selling biographies of his favorite Democrat power couple.

Now the irrepressibly troublemaking Tyrrell has updated the Bill Clinton saga with The Clinton Crack-Up: The Boy President's Life After the White House. I talked to him Thursday, April 18, by telephone from his offices in Washington.


The Trouble With Harry

The Trouble With Harry
By Rick Moran

If I were George Bush right about now, I'd wrap my arms around Harry Reid and give him a great big kiss on the cheek. And I might even consider sending Speaker Pelosi a dozen roses, thanking her for playing her part to perfection in this Democratic Party defeatist extravaganza.

The Democrats are handing the President the one thing he desperately needed in order to maintain the surge, veto the Iraq supplemental with its timetables and withdrawal stipulations, and unite the Republicans as they haven't been since the election last November: a political club with which to beat his opponents and re-energize support for the war among his base.

Oh, the Games People Play

Pelosi Won't Attend Petraeus Briefing

As the House and Senate prepare to vote this week on the final conference report on the $124 billion troop funding bill — which would also mandate that U.S. combat troops begin withdrawing from Iraq on Oct. 1 at the latest — Gen. David Petraeus is scheduled to come to the Hill tomorrow to brief lawmakers on the progress of the recent troop escalation.

ABC News has learned, however, that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will not attend the briefing. "She can't make the briefing tomorrow," a Democratic aide told ABC News Tuesday evening.


Playing these games are what really makes me mad at the Democrat Party--particularly it's top 'leaders'. When she doesn't have to fly back to her cave at night (you know, the one with that box of dirt from the Old Country in it in which she sleeps) Nancy Pelosi wants to seem like she's got her finger on the pulse. She wants to be top dog. She's busy proving to America, and the rest of the world, that the Democrats are just better people than Republicans, better because they care so much more, and really govern.

Yes, they are going to do something about that Iraqi war, they are going to fix it, they are the only one that can do it. They are going to 'take the solution to Mr. Bush' and 'show him the way'. They REALLY care about the troops--much more than WE do. They'll show Mr. Bush how it's done, they'll bring this war to an end--and in the right way, too--because they're always thinking of those poor kids!

EXCEPT: Nancy can't seem to find a speck of time with which to meet with General Petraeus tomorrow for an important briefing he's giving on the situation there. She has time to take days to fly to Syria and meet with all manner of terrorist leaders, but she hasn't got a minute in her schedule to hear about the MOST important issue facing our nation today.

What do you mean you can't spare a half hour? Are you so insufficiently organized, Nancy, that you can't scrape 5 minutes off 6 other activities that day? (Do without lunch, for heaven's sake!)

A few weeks ago, she refused to go to the White House and to a meeting with President Bush; she wanted to meet 'on her own turf'. 'Bush will have to meet with me in MY office, or I simply won't go'. She DOES want to visit Iran and meet with Ahmadinejad, though... (have-Armani-bag-will-travel!)

These are just deliberately stupid schoolyard games, folks. They are immature and they betray the lengths to which the Democrat Party will go to stamp their feet--even if it hurts us and our soldiers. They're thinking of no one but themselves. With all the continual complaining the Democrats do about the management of the war, if Petraeus is here, in from Iraq, there would be NOTHING more important Pelosi would have to do that day, but meet with him!

How would you like to be a soldier fighting in Iraq and hear that your own Speaker--3rd in line to the Presidency--refuses to meet with the top man running the war? A war in which you may, perhaps, give your life? Especially after the Democrats made such a big deal out of, and based an important election upon, the 'poor' management they felt the troops were getting, and feel they still get? Nancy can't sufficiently rearrange her schedule? Come on!

I don't know how you'd feel, but I'd feel awfully used by the Dems.

Phony As They Come...

Hillary's Best Game Face: Survivor
By Dick Morris & Eileen McGann

Polls suggest that the leading attribute attracting voters to Hillary's presidential candidacy is her "experience," a virtue which contrasts, presumably, with the lack of it in Sen. Barack Obama, her chief rival.

But a close examination of her record as first lady and as New York senator suggests that her experience is largely in the avoidance of death by scandal.

Were it to be captured in a television series, it would certainly not rise to the level of "Commander In Chief" and probably not even to that of "West Wing."
It would find its televised metaphor in the reality series "Survivor."

NY Civil Rights Lawyer Is Disbarred

A civil rights lawyer convicted of helping an imprisoned terrorist sheik communicate with his disciples was disbarred Tuesday.

The New York Supreme Court's Appellate Division denied Lynne Stewart's request to voluntarily resign from the practice of law.

Stewart was convicted in 2005 of providing material support to terrorists.
She had released a statement issued by one of her clients, Omar Abdel-Rahman, a blind sheik sentenced to life in prison for plotting to blow up five New York landmarks and assassinate Egypt's president.

The appellate panel said Stewart became subject to losing her law license immediately upon being convicted of a felony. Her request to resign was in a letter dated Nov. 14, 2006, after she was convicted, and therefore could not be accepted, the court said.

Stewart was convicted of one count each of conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to provide and conceal material support to terrorist activity and providing and concealing material support to terrorist activity. She also was convicted of two counts of making false statements.

The state appellate court said the federal convictions of making a false statement were analogous to a state felony statute against filing a false written statement. "Accordingly, the federal convictions provide a proper predicate for automatic disbarment," the appellate judges wrote.


The Big White Lie

The Big White Lie
By Andrew Klavan

The thing I like best about being a conservative is that I don’t have to lie. I don’t have to pretend that men and women are the same. I don’t have to declare that failed or oppressive cultures are as good as mine.

I don’t have to say that everyone’s special or that the rich cause poverty or that all religions are a path to God. I don’t have to claim that a bad writer like Alice Walker is a good one or that a good writer like Toni Morrison is a great one. I don’t have to pretend that Islam means peace.

It Depends What the Meaning Of “Support” Is
By David Limbaugh

One is entitled to wonder how the prime movers in today's Democratic Party would behave differently if they were trying to dispirit our troops and embolden the enemy.

Early on in the Iraq war I watched in disbelief as Democrats, one by one, then group by group, with malice aforethought, fraudulently accused President Bush of something they knew to be false: that he deceived the nation about Iraqi WMD to start a war he had been predetermined to launch since before he was conceived because a) he wanted revenge against Saddam for his father, b) he wanted Iraq's oil for the United States, c) he wanted Iraq's oil for Dick Cheney or d) he is a neoconservative dogmatist who believes democracy is a panacea and preemptive wars to convert tyrannies to democracy are our new Manifest Destiny.

Yes, they accused our commander in chief of lying us into war — thus savaging his reputation and that of the United States before the entire world — all the while complaining that President Bush had damaged our reputation in the international community.

Let Us Not Forget...

A Hero's Death: Remembering Liviu Librescu
By William Kristol

Tolstoy, I suspect, had it wrong. Examples of unhappiness are more like each other than instances of happiness. Mass murderers, for example, tend to be all alike. As David von Drehle pointed out in last week's Time, these killers are almost always "raging narcissists"--emotionally isolated, envious and resentful. They are at once sick and uninteresting.
Heroes, on the other hand, are each heroic in their own way.

Reading through biographies of recipients of decorations for valor in combat recently, I was struck by the quality they all shared--extraordinary courage, demonstrated in remarkable ways. In this, these men are alike. Yet in other ways they are a strikingly diverse group. Some are religious and some secular, some family men and some bon vivants, some self-improvers and some cut-ups. All heroic individuals aren't alike, even if heroic deeds have a family resemblance.

A healthy society will recognize such deeds. It will remember and honor the doers of those deeds. It will turn its gaze away from the killer at Virginia Tech. A hero of that sad tale, by contrast, received only passing mention in many stories. So let's take a minute to recall the life and death of Professor Liviu Librescu.




I find the arguments for "gun control" whereby no one is permitted to own a gun to be part of a growing phenomenom in the Western world where we deny the means of effective self-defense to law-abiding citizens. Regardless of what the gun control advocates say, the truth of the matter is the whole world is full of violent people quite willing to kill other people using any means at their disposal. Anyone reading the headlines today knows this. But is that any different than at any other time in history? I doubt it is with one exception: there are far more people and statistically that means there are more madmen who want to commit carnage, given time and opportunity,

So, the answer is: take the guns away. The trouble with that is that a determined killer will find a some means to kill hundreds of innocent people because, by the very definition, the "determined killer"is NOT going to respect the "no gun" laws. The 9/11 hijackers used box cutters as their primary weapon to seize control of a much larger weapon, the airplane itself. In fact, a gun is just one instrument used by killers. As many people die in the world from blunt-force trauma as die from gunshots, a statistic rarely cited by any of the gun control advocates.

But beneath it all is a gradual erosion of our notion of self-defense. The reason so many died at VTec is because the killer knew, with confidence, that no one would resist him, at least not effectively. With no means to defend themselves against someone with lethal power and the evil intent to use it, most were reduced to cowering or running. Only running helped but, as is often the case in urban-like environments, that is a limited option based on escape avenues that are not always readily available. Further, mass panic often ensues in such situations and it should be clear the dangers such a situations creates.

So, it's not just the fact no one other than the killer had a weapon, it was because everyone there other than Cho had been robbed of any sense of real empowerment and, even worse, of any right to self-defense. They were all reduced to fleeing or hiding or throwing themseleves on the mercy of the killer until someone WITH force arrived to stop the madman. But, as we see and as Farrah has pointed out, questions remain about how the police responded to the situation (both at VTec and at Columbine).

One person, man or woman, properly trained in the use of sidearms, could've brought Cho's short reign of terror to a quick end. I use the term "could've" because their efforts might've failed. But their efforts could've also succeeded and how many lives would've been saved? How many families would've been spared the heartache that has visited them even today? If one security guard at Columbine had been armed and trained to use that weapon, confident in his or her right to use deadly force when called for, how many lives would've been spared there? In the case with Columbine and VTec, the police did not really enter the scene until after the gunmen had committed suicide.

One thing is certain, so long as Cho had the guns and the ammo and his victims did not, he was free to kill as he wished. It is quite clear that is what he did, shooting many victims more than once.

While Mary was getting a third bullet pumped into her already mortally wounded body, Joe Shmoe cowered in the corner, unable to stop the assailant because he had nothing with which to act but, even worse, he had been robbed of his sense that it was right to do so. Well-meaning but wrong-headed social engineers had carefully weeded out his ability to defend himself and his fellow victims by making it immoral or unfashionable or non-progressive to defend one's own life or that of others and then ensuring victim status by outlawing any means to effective self-defense. But Joe Shmoe won't have to live with his emasculation because Cho finally got around to him, as well. But Joe and Mary died heroes in the minds of some because he and Mary died unarmed and without resistance.

They went quitely to their graves, victims but gun-free.

Meanwhile, the next set of victims are getting up and going about their defenseless way of existence, secure that the police will handle any emergency and confident that the gun-free zones will keep them safe, while somewhere a killer looks over his guns and ammo clips and dreams of a final statement to the world.

And so we become a world of sheep, so afraid that Joe Shmoe might -- just might -- blow his girlfriend away in the heat of the moment that we take away his gun -- and Mary's gun -- and ensure they will be the next victims to get memorialized at candlelit homages.

It's not the guns. It's the attitude behind the disarmament of the law-abiding individual that is the problem.

Arnold, at Tarheel Redneck (see sidebar for link) has written a masterful article on gun control (it should be published).

I feel very strongly about owning guns; dad had a bucket of them and filled his own shells in the basement. Everyone in Colorado has one; I can't imagine a man not having one. He took me shooting when I was 8.

I believe in the right of self defense. What the heck does the Constitution provide for if not this?

The Dilemma

The Dilemma

Today, I finally got it about the Jews. My mental disconnect ended and I realized their eternal dilemma. I mean, these people have been beset with various nations and groups trying to assassinate them for centuries. And, now, they are being pushed to the edge of having to guard their own survival (no less because no one else will).

However, they do not want to be genocidal themselves. It's abhorrent to them; they are too moral a people. It's not just a matter of it having been done continually to them.

I finally understand because I am at the point where I am done. My tolerance is gone. I hate the muslims and wish they were off the earth--and I am so far gone it is only in some moments that I feel badly about this. I can just imagine how the Israelis feel. Living next door to people who want nothing more than your death, ones who call you apes and pigs. Living down the street from an Iranian madman who says he wants the bomb with which to do it with even more dispatch.

Then, the Jews, thinking of Hitler--and having him forever imprinted on their collective memory and wanting SO badly to never be equated with him--and, yet, having to make sure they endure and that maybe they cannot do that without taking out a large swath. That conundrum is surely the definition of hell: to be genocidal or exterminated yourself.

You see, I've never quite understood why Israel has not done more to defend itself (though I do understand the United States has had a hand in this, wanting 'stability' in the middle east...) Instead, I think this forever-dilemma has more to do with it, sometimes.

Fortunately, Ahmadinejad may make the question moot (and the mullahs, understanding these issues more closely, might be what is making him unchampioned in Iran). He is playing a fools game because, of all the people on earth that would be willing to believe a peoples are really trying to kill them, it would be the Jews. Ahmadinejad does not understand this; they are quite serious, and one bad move on his part will give them the justification they currently may not feel they have.

They've had it for years.

Pardon me for appearing to speak for a people, perhaps assuming without first asking (or being off base entirely); these are only my mental ruminations this morning.

Blue Angels Jet Crashes, Killing Pilot in South Carolina

Blue Angels Jet Crashes, Killing Pilot in South Carolina
By Fox News

A Navy F-18 Blue Angel plane crashed during an air show Saturday, plunging into a small neighborhood of homes and trailers and killing the pilot.

Witnesses said the planes were flying in formation during the show at the Marine Corps Air Station and one dropped below the trees and apparently crashed, sending up clouds of smoke.

Raymond Voegeli, a plumber, was backing out of a driveway when the plane ripped through a grove of nearby pine trees, dousing his truck in flames and debris.

"It was just a big fireball coming at me," said Voegeli, 37. "It was just taking pine trees and just clipping them."

He said wreckage hit "plenty of houses and mobile homes." Other witnesses said metal and plastic, some of it on fire, peppered the neighborhood and that one mobile home was destroyed. The witnesses were unsure whether that home was occupied.

John Sauls, who lives near the crash site, said the planes were banking back and forth before one disappeared, and a plume of smoke shot up.

"It's one of those surreal moments when you go, 'No, I didn't just see what I saw,' " Sauls said.

Ismail Ax: The Shooter Was Another 'Son of Sacrifice'

Ismail Ax: The Shooter Was Another 'Son of Sacrifice'
By Jerry Bowyer

First it was Johnny Muhammad, now it was Cho Sueng Hui aka Ismail Ax. Precisely how many mass shooters have to turn out to have adopted Muslim names before we get it? Islam has become the tribe of choice of those who hate American society. I'm not talking about people who grew up as Muslims, confident and secure in their faith, good fathers, sons and neighbors. I'm talking about the angry, malignant, narcissist loners who want to reject their community utterly, to throw off their 'slave name' and represent the downtrodden of the earth by shooting their friends and neighbors.

This morning I read that the Virginia Tech shooter died with the name Ismail Ax written in red ink on his arm. The mainstream press doesn't seem to have a clue as to what this might mean. To quote Indiana Jones, "Didn't any of you guys go to Sunday School?" The story starts with a man named Abraham. He is the father of the Jews, the Muslims and the Christians. He was born in Iraq, the son of a wealthy idol manufacturer. He came to believe that there was only one true God and, according to tradition, took up his ax and destroyed his father's idols. Eventually he left Iraq and moved to what is now known as Israel. He had a son with his concubine whom she named Ishmael.

The Muslim world prefers the Arabic spelling of the name: Ismail. Eventually Abraham had a son by his rightful wife and named the son Isaac. Ishmael and his mother were disinherited and sent out into what is now Saudi Arabia. Isaac became the heir. Eventually, God decided to test Abraham by telling him to kill his son, Isaac. Abraham took up the knife, but God stopped him at the last moment. Isaac lived and eventually became a man of great wealth. Ishmael became a desert warrior chieftain.

The Jews are the descendants of Isaac, the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael. In the 7th Century, Muhammad, the founder of Islam, re-wrote the story, claiming that Ismail was the true faithful descendant of Abraham and that it was he, not Isaac, who God told Abraham to sacrifice. Ismail was the one saved. For Muslims, Ismail (not Isaac) was the true 'Son of Sacrifice.'

In the original version of the story, Abraham used a knife, in some of the later Muslim versions, he used an Ax. Flash forward 1,400 years: a sullen, angry young man who rages against rich people and apparently against Christians, writes a play in which a mother and son try to kill his step-father, but in the end the boy (age about 13, the age many think Ismail was when he was exiled) is murdered by the step-father with 'a deadly blow'. Father issues? Yeah, I think so. Cho Sueng-hui cum Ismail Ax hated the American society to which he had been brought 15 years earlier. His play McBeef (a poor pun from an English Lit major on Macbeth) is one endless screed against the corruption of American culture.

A cheesy re-telling of Shakespeare's Hamlet, it involves a young man abused by his step-father, a former NFL football player. The son, throws epithets at his father calling him a 'Catholic priest'. And makes derisive comments about McDonalds. It seems that none of the foundational structures of Western Civilization, Christianity, capitalism, family, are spared his rage. In other words, he really meant what he said in his last words: "you (that is us, America) made me do this."

AMERICA: Peaceful Muslims Are Welcome

AMERICA: Peaceful Muslims Are Welcome

After reading the letter from the board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, I felt compelled to respond in order to clarify some of his statements and correct some of his misrepresentations.

The letter writer stated, "According to a Gallup Poll, four out of 10 Americans are prejudiced toward Islam and Muslims." That's an astonishingly low number based on what Americans and the rest of the world have had to deal with as the result of Muslim terrorism. Did he actually think that percentage was high?

The letter writer pointed to India's 20 percent Muslim population as proof that Islam can live peacefully as a minority within a non-Muslim country. The main problem with this contention is that it is a falsehood.

In December 2001, a Muslim suicide bomber attacked the Indian parliament building in New Delhi. In September 2002, Muslims launched a machine gun attack on a Hindu temple in Ahmedabad, India, killing 31 and injuring 86.

In October 2005, Muslim terrorists attacked a crowded market in Delhi, India, killing 60 and injuring 180.

In March 2006, a Muslim bomber killed 28 and injured 100 in the Hindu holy city of Varanasi, India.

According to the Indian police, countless attacks were thwarted or abandoned altogether. So why did he point to India as an example of Muslim religious co-existence?
He pointed to Spain as "intolerant" of Islam, specifically the city of Cordova.

He failed to mention that Muslim terrorists murdered 191 Spaniards and injured 2,050 in March 2004 in the infamous Madrid train bombings. I would say that Spain has exercised amazing restraint in light of injuries at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

I don't want to convey the wrong message. Peaceful Muslims are welcome in America, as are peaceful adherents to any of the world's great religions. America has always welcomed those who want to live in peace and prosperity and become good Americans.

The letter writer claims that "the U.S. Constitution is consistent with the aims and objectives of Islamic Shariah." Shariah law is inconsistent with the founding principles of this great republican democracy.

The Taliban practiced a strict form of Shariah in Afghanistan. Adulterers (always women) were stoned to death, and little girls were kept functionally illiterate as state policy.
Americans are amazingly accepting and tolerant people. The letter writer and his flock are welcome, too, but we demand the truth.

Bush Offers Condolences at Virginia Tech

Representing America's anguish, President Bush said Tuesday that he prays for comfort for those victimized by the "dark turn" of the day at Virginia Tech that turned into the nation's deadliest shooting spree.

"Laura and I have come to Blacksburg today with hearts full of sorrow," he said in six-minute remarks at a convocation on the campus where 33 people, including the suspected gunman, died in two separate shootings the day before. "This is a day of mourning for the Virginia Tech community and it is a day of sadness for our entire nation."

Dear God, We Offer Our Profound Sympathy...

Virginia Tech Campus Reels From Shooting That Leaves at Least 32 Dead
By Liza Porteus

Students and faculty at Virginia Tech University were in shock Monday after a gunman shot and killed at least 32 people and injured 21 during the most deadly shooting spree in U.S. history.

Federal law enforcement officials told FOX News that the 32 dead includes the shooter. Police at the campus in Blacksburg, Va., said there was only one shooter responsible for the two shootings, which occurred about two hours apart from each other.

But there are still many questions left unanswered, including who the shooter was, whether he was a student, why no one saw or stopped him in between shootings, and why he decided to launch the killing spree.

"The university was struck today with a tragedy of monumental proportions," Virginia Tech President Charles Steger said during a press conference shortly after noon. "The university is shocked and horrified that this would befall our campus ... I cannot begin to convey my own personal sense of loss over this senselessness of such an incomprehensible and heinous act."

'It's Not Just Imus,' Warn Talk-Radio Headhunters

Democrat Party Shows It's Ass:

Bare-Bottomed Democrats on Display
By Phil Harris

Never have I witnessed a more short-sighted bunch of spoiled brats in positions of leadership, or aspiring for leadership, than we have in the Democrats today. We have the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Nancy Pelosi is apparently not satisfied with that job, because she simply cannot keep her hands off of the duties and roles assigned to the Presidency. Just a few seconds of self reflection, should send every one of the usual suspects under their mother's skirts from shear embarrassment.

Now, embarrassed is a funny word when you stop and think about it. It describes a feeling of shame, or a state of existence where one would rather not be. It describes a feeling, where you know critical eyes are watching in disapproval.

Words rarely exhibit such an exquisite construction of components that so accurately describes human emotion as does this word. Think how you would feel if suddenly your pants were to fall down, and you are left standing in public, bare (bottom) hanging out for all to see.

Anti-War 'Easter Bunny' Colors Holiday at Walter Reed
By Payton Hoegh

With temperatures dropping into the low 30s, Easter weekend felt more like Christmas in the nation's capital -- and with anti-war protestors dressing in creepy costumes, it looked more like Halloween to some critics, too.

CodePink, Veterans for Peace and other anti-war groups have been holding weekly demonstrations outside Walter Reed Hospital for almost two years.


This is absolutely inexcusable! It's no better than how our vets were treated after Viet Nam. The Code Pink Commies need to be banned from the property; if I were a wounded vet, they be a MOST egregious sight from my hospital window!

Bad News Is Ticket to Political Power

Bad News Is Ticket to Political Power
By David Limbaugh

It is hard to overstate the arrogance and bellicosity of the congressional Democratic leadership.
When they're not playing footsie with our enemies, they're savaging President Bush, gleefully naysaying every aspect of the Iraq war and harming the troops they pretend to protect.
Everywhere you turn, Democrats are working their partisan destruction.

Turn to the Washington Post and read about Sen. Joe Biden contradicting the administration and the military's claims that the "surge" in Iraq is producing dividends. Don't be misled, chides Biden. Don't dare focus on any good news coming out of Iraq that doesn't fit into our anti-Bush, anti-war template.

Good vs. Evil

The Problem Of Evil: Why Do “Good” People Do Bad Things?
By Lauren Green

One of the interesting things about “The Lucifer Effect” is how a secular psychologist is embracing a theological term like “evil.” The secular world has many psychological and medical terms to describe the various human conditions. But “evil” conjures up images of the supernatural, a throwback to an age of ignorance, where there was a lack of “understanding” about simple psychiatry.

“Evil” is a place with many unopened doors and untraveled, darkened corridors of the mind — something that's out of control. And in a sense, that's what Zimbardo means: the turning of a screw can happen so slowly. The vast distance that one travels, from a place of goodness and safety, to a place of horrors and mayhem, is almost imperceptible.


Perhaps--and I don't know if the average person thinks about who they are, in relation to this, and what they're about... However, when I worked in the group home, we had to think about it constantly; obviously we had dominion over the boys (and that was why). Many of them were mute and had no way to protest something except to act out.

Our group home's goal was to give the kids as many 'life chances' as possible. Thus, whenever we did anything, we had to ask ourselves if we were being unnecessarily controlling, simply for the sake of control.

So much abuse is an overdoing of control. When you ask yourself about your own motives everytime you give a direction, abuse is very easily extinguished. However, you have to be aware that it's too easy to fall into over-managing a situation, that your own agenda, problems, and ego can trip you up. You have to learn to put yourself away entirely and consciously think about someone else's best interests.

In that way, it's easy to see evil as something mired in one's narcissism; it is a relentless selfishness.

Navy Memorial

Three Of Our Whidbey Island Sailors Killed In Iraq
By Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Three sailors based at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island were killed in Iraq -- the first from Whidbey to die in the war.

The Defense Department on Monday said Chief Petty Officer Gregory J. Billiter, 36, of Villa Hills, Ky; Petty Officer 2nd Class Curtis R. Hall, 24, of Burley, Idaho; and Petty Officer 1st Class Joseph A. McSween, 26, of Valdosta, Ga. died Friday near Kirkuk.

The three sailors were members of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 11 at Whidbey Island.

The three were killed by enemy forces during combat operations, the Pentagon said. A Navy veterans' Web site said the trio were traveling in a convoy that was attacked. Their detachment was sent to Iraq earlier this year.


Please join me in mourning these fine men stationed up here on our Whidbey Island who were killed in Iraq this week. We will remember them for their bravery.

Bunny Pancakes!

After that crap from DU, I thought I'd put up something nice!

Easter Prayers From DU For President Bush:

--May the fortunes of every nation you brought blessed upon, be blessed upon you ten-fold. And may you be blessed to know, for all of eternity, each and every soul that died for your sins. God Bless President Bush. AMEN

--I have a slightly different prayer for Shrubya, it goes something like this: Burn in hell. Amen.

--Please give Presnit Boosh an inoperable brain tumor.Yours in Christ, MLF

--May George W. Bush discover his soul, and repent mightily, as a hermit.

--May the Universe bless president bush with a long and healthy life.Long enough that his grandchildren will one day open their history books to see what a criminal despot their grandfather was;Healthy enough to serve out his long life behind bars.

--I would only pass on to him the famous inspirational words of our great Vice-President. Go fuck yourself.

Pardon me for putting this up on Easter, but I want the world to know what the Leftists are made of. They are truly the ulgliest-hearted people I've ever seen in my life!

And for all you Lefties who think these were one-in-a-million, kook fringe posts, (Les Ismore, your famous for thinking this...) there's more crap up over there:

--I was watching the Ten Commandments last night. During the scene where Moses is talking with Pharoh about the plagues, my wife looks at me and says "Moses is a terrorist!!!".

--Eight minutes past three, on this very good Friday. Call us on the open line and tell us what you think.Well, we got him. It's been a long time coming, but, finally: he's confessed.

Egg on the face of all his supporters this afternoon, as self-confessed terrorist Jesus Christ gets exactly what he deserved. And some would say crucifixion is too good for the likes of him.

It's my understanding he was arrested at approximately eight thirty last evening, hiding out in a mountain of olives, after government authorities - working with the religious leadership - employed one Judas Iscariot, who had infiltrated his network of supporters, to lead them to him.

Then, in a rapid series of late night sittings and early morning hearings, the Sanhedrin, the Roman governor Pontius Pilate AND King Herod himself ALL came to the same conclusion: this grubby threat to the civilized world had to be dealt with, and promptly.

There's TONS of this nonsense up at the Democrat Underground; Leftists, go clean your house--you're a disgrace!
