Today is the 70th Anniversary of the Start of World War Two, September 1,
1939. Fifty Million people were estimated to have lost their lives in the ongoing years till War's end.
Something to think about when then, like today, we were not prepared Mentally nor Militarily to respond to a threat from a
National Socialist Party of Brown Shirts and Black Shirts who simply wanted to Right the Wrongs of the Past
Administration. History can and will be repeated if common people lose their Faith. This Video urges us to Remember ...
watch then join the Tea Party.

A Tribute to Our Soldiers
~ Past and Present ~
NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS ...
... HE LIVED ALL ALONE
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE
OF PLASTER AND STONE.
I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE
AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS
SMALL HOME DID LIVE.
I LOOKED ALL ABOUT, A
STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS, NOT
EVEN A TREE.
NO STOCKING BY MANTLE, JUST
BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF
FAR DISTANT LANDS.
WITH MEDALS AND BADGES,
AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT ...
FOR THIS HOUSE WAS
DIFFERENT, IT WAS DARK AND
I FOUND THE HOME OF A
SOLDIER, ONCE I COULD SEE
THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR IN
THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.
THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE, THE
ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED A UNITED
WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM
I'D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO, THE
FLOOR FOR A BED?
I REALIZED THE FAMILIES THAT
I SAW THIS NIGHT,
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE
SOLDIERS WILLING TO FIGHT.
SOON ROUND THE WORLD, THE
CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE
A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.
THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM
EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS LIKE
THE ONE LYING HERE.
HOW MANY LAY ALONE ON A COLD
IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.
THE VERY THOUGHT OF IT ALL
BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE,
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND
STARTED TO CRY.
THE SOLDIER AWAKENED AND I
HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
"SANTA DON'T CRY, THIS LIFE
IS MY CHOICE.
I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, I DON'T
ASK FOR MORE,
MY LIFE IS MY GOD; MY
COUNTRY, MY HOME."
THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER AND
DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
I COULDN'T CONTROL IT, I
CONTINUED TO WEEP.
I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS, SO
SILENT AND STILL
AND BOTH WE SHIVERED FROM
THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.
I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ON
THAT COLD, DARK NIGHT,
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR SO
WILLING TO FIGHT.
THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED
OVER, WITH A VOICE SOFT AND
WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA,
'TIS CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS
ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH AND I
KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT.
This poem was written by an
unnamed Soldier, pass it on
this Christmas season to
family and friends and
reflect on the reason.
Do you think
Crusade is too harsh a word after the "holy war" was just visited on our American civilians and five more of our proud young Marines in the Rat Hole near Baghdad? I believe before we see the fields of Iraq flourish by turning swords into plowshares we should turn some Sunnis into fertilizer. Terror and mayhem be blessed upon the wretched.
I HAVE AN IDEA ! Women of America, DO YOUR DUTY !!
We all know that it is a sin for an Islamic male to see any woman other than his wife naked, and that if he follows the rigid doctrine of the Koran, he must commit suicide if he does.
So next Sunday at 4:00 PM Eastern time, all American Women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists.
Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort. All men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not terrorists, and to demonstrate that they think it's okay to see nude women, other than their wife and to show support for all our Patriotic American Women.
And since the Koran also does not approve of alcohol, a cold six-pack at your side, or Martini is good too, is further proof of your anti-terrorist sentiment. Please also have a long knife handy for hari-kari if you see any Islamics contemplating suicide.
The American Government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti terrorist activity. I'm sure even George would say, "God bless America and GOD BLESS AMERICAN WOMEN!"
CONSIDER IT YOUR PATRIOTIC DUTY TO PASS THIS ON.
I always thought this rendition apropos.
With all the discussion at this time about what should replace the towers I think the simplistic approach is best. If they were good when they were built I see no reason for change. Perhaps the paint job would be much too overwhelming for the liberals to digest.
I LIKE IT !!
What better way to introduce the Middle East to our culture than providing the current residents with our view of the solution.

NewsMax.com has obtained exclusive photos of a buried Iraqi jet fighter being recovered by U.S. Air Force troops. The Iraqi jet, an advanced Russian MiG-25 Foxbat, was found buried in the sand after an informant tipped off U.S. troops.
The MiG was dug out of a massive sand dune near the Al Taqqadum airfield by U.S. Air Force recovery teams. The MiG was reportedly one of over two dozen Iraqi jets buried in the sand, like hidden treasure, waiting to be recovered at a later date.
Contrary to what some in the major media have reported, not all the jets found were from the Gulf War era. The Russian-made MiG-25 Foxbat being recovered by U.S. Air Force troops in the photos is an advanced reconnaissance version never before seen in the West and is equipped with sophisticated electronic warfare devices.
U.S. Air Force recovery teams had to use large earth-moving equipment to uncover the MiG, which is over 70 feet! long
and weighs nearly 25 tons. The Foxbat is known to be one of Iraq's top jet fighters. The advanced
electronic reconnaissance version found by the U.S. Air Force is currently in service with the Russian air force. The MiG is capable of flying at speeds of over 2,000 miles an hour, or three times the speed of sound, and at altitudes of over 75,000 feet.
The recovery of the advanced MiG fighter is considered to be an intelligence coup by the U.S. Air Force. The Foxbat may also be equipped with advanced Russian and French-made electronics that were sold to Iraq during the1990s in violation of a U.N. ban on arms sales to Baghdad.
The buried aircraft at Al Taqqadum were covered in camouflage
netting, sealed and, in many cases, had their wings removed before being buried more than 10
feet beneath the Iraqi
desert. The discovery of the buried Iraqi jet fighters illustrates the problem faced by U.S. inspection teams searching Iraq for! weapons of mass destruction. Iraq is larger in size than California, and the massive deserts south and west of Baghdad were used by Saddam Hussein to hide weapons during the first Gulf war.
U.S. intelligence sources have already uncovered several mass grave burial sites in the open deserts with an estimated 10,000 dead hidden there. In addition, Iraq previously hid SCUD missiles, chemical weapons and biological warheads by burying them under the desert sand. U.N. inspection teams found the weapons in the early 1990s after detailed information of the exact locations was obtained. Top U.S. weapons inspector Dr. David Kay is known to favor human intelligence as the primary means to find Iraq's hidden treasure trove of weapons and secrets.
While there are rumors of Iraqi chemical and biological weapons being shipped to nearby Syria, the weapons may
very well still remain inside Iraq buried under the vast desert wastelands. Some critics of the Bush administration have claimed that the inability of U.S. forces to uncover weapons of mass destruction is proof that the
president misled the nation into the war with Iraq. However, in recent days the critics have fallen silent as word quietly leaked from Iraq that major discoveries have already been made and are now being documented completely.
Congratulations to all who helped get Saddam!! Still some left
Now I know one of you soldiers has got to have a real photo of this guy crawling out of his hole. I would love to share your joy with the world and put it on our site. Please be careful out there in getting your tough job done. And Thank you all very much.
This jewel arrived in my e-mail ....
The ACLU has taken the view that crosses should be removed from all public property.....
.... Let them try and remove these! What are these people thinking? At what point do we say, enough is enough? Please pass this on to as many people as possible as quickly as you can even if you normally don't do this type of thing. Some messages just need to be forwarded and this is most certainly one of them. Please take the time.
Just copy and paste.

This picture of the statue below was made by an Iraqi artist named Kalat, who for years was forced by Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted
. This artist was so grateful that the Americans liberated his country, he melted three of the fallen Saddam heads and made a memorial statue dedicated to the American soldiers and their fallen comrades. Kalat worked on this night and day for several months.
To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrade in arms. It is currently on display outside the palace that is now home to the 4th Infantry Division. It will eventually be shipped and shown at the memorial museum in
A Soldier just sent me some
new photos of this statue in Fort Hood,
Texas and I will get them up soon.
