International Free Press Day- 9/30/09

In honor of the courage displayed by Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that had the cojones to publish the Mohammed cartoons on 9/30/05, the International Free Press Society (IFPS) has designated September 30 as International Free Press Day. To commemorate the day, the IFPS is sponsoring 73-year-old Kurt Westergaard on a tour of several U.S. cities-including Yale, Princeton and New York city. Westergaard was one of 12 artists who created cartoons of Mohammed in response to Denmark's caving in to political correctness with regards to Islamic shariah law. Not surprisingly, since publishing his Mohammed with a bomb-atop-his-turban cartoon, Westergaard has needed state security for protection, since his life has been threatened. Because, well, there's no freedom in Islam, let alone freedom of speech.

So here's to Kurt Westergaard and all those who dare to exercise their right to free speech.

School Kids Praising Obama- Hero worship at its worst

There is something fundamentally wrong with worshipping a man as if he was God, which is what has been happening since the campaign days. This is not N. Korea.

And you know the parents would have been up in arms if this had been about Bush, or if these kids were being encouraged to sing some religious songs.

Song 1:
Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama

Song 2:
Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"

Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!
The first black American to lead this great nation!

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again!

Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!

So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick
So here's a hearty hip-hooray ----

Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!

9/11- Lest we forget!

It's been 8 years since that dreadful day; a day that some of us, who witnessed the true face of evil, will remember in vivid, horrific detail. The 3,000 innocents who died. Those poor souls who chose to jump to their deaths rather than burn alive. The massive destruction and devastation. But for others, as the years pass by, the memories start to fade and what happened on that fateful Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001 has less impact, and in some cases forgotten. A few days ago I mentioned to someone that we were approaching 9/11- they asked what was so important; they had simply forgotten what had occurred that day.

What transpired that tuesday was not a terrible accident, or a tragic act of nature, it was a deliberate, flagrant act of aggression against this country and its citizens by religious Muslim fanatics. And although those Saudi Arabian funded jihadists who hijacked the planes on 9/11 would be considered extremists, what about all those people who were dancing in the streets in the Middle East, celebrating the death of 3,000 men, women and children? Should they too be considered extremists? I think not.

The problem with the passage of time is that complacency settles in, and with complacency we become less vigilant. Back when the memories were fresh, we understood how real the threat of Islamic fundamentalism was and were being proactive. But things have changed since then. We have become politically correct, appeasers, unwilling to offend those who would love to do us harm. What was once coined "the Global War on Terror", is no longer part of our government's terminology in describing our fight against global terrorism. Suddenly, the terrorists have rights and our CIA are under scrutiny. With Obama's naive and frankly dangerous belief that we can reach out and touch an Islamic fundamentalist, by trying to negotiate with the likes of the Taliban and other crazies like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will lead this country to destruction, or at least another terrorist attack on our soil.

I realize that there are times when it is best to forget and move on, but there are certain events that we should never forget, and 9/11 is one of those. And we need to be even more vigilant.

God Bless the victims, their families and all the heroes of 9/11!
