Comment: Dear Sirs, I have just received some neo-con propaganda, via a
well meaning but misguided friend in Australia.
It refers to Jane Fonda's attempts to depict the Vietnam war. I spent some
time working in Vietnam two years ago, the effects of 'Agent Orange' are
still prevalent there, and probably will be for centuries to come.
The humiliation America suffered in this war was well deserved in my
opinion.
America is becoming universally despised, due to the efforts of the
present anus in charge.
It seems incredible to me that America can produce people like Jane Fonda,
Michael Frantine, Michael Moore then elect an ignoranus, (Washington Post
word), like George W***** Bush. He has brought this once great nation to
represent little more than brutal ignorance, like many Englishmen I feel
ashamed about our spherically challenged Prime Minister's support for
America. Fortunately most people are capable of drawing a distinction
between America, Americans and its allies.

Comment: This is TRUE!! These people do not want to leave our country
because it's so 'horrible', they want to TAKE IT OVER!!! Their goal is to
eliminate our way of life. They do not want to come to this country to
become Americans, they want to come here to expand ISLAM. Do not be
fooled. We as Americans must stand up for our rights and what we believe
in. Our country was founded on the beliefs of JUDEO-CHRISTIANS. Do not
let the generosity of our 'open border's' change what our country is all
about.

Today in America, Boy Scouts have been banned from all Military Bases
because they pay tribute to God! For the 24 Muslims in uniform at Marine
Base Quantico, a mosque is being built, Islamic chaplins are being
demanded for all our Muslim troops throughout the military, over 400 in
the Marine corps alone. America, WAKE UP!!!

Yes, how truly terrible that our rights should be extended to those who help protect them.

Comment: I think it is a disgrace that no has anything better to do with
there time then report lies about the deaths of stars. What does that do
for them???? Especially in a case where god forbid one of the stars
children may go on the computer and see that something like that was
written about their father or mother!Both of my sons kept saying that Kel
Kimble had died as they did with Jaleel White! Grow up and find something
better to do with your time then make up lies about someones death! I
don't think they would appreciate it if someone put on a web site that
something had happened to one of there loved ones, when in fact it didn't!
Worry about more important things then something that has no bearing to
your life!

Comment: This comment is in regards to the article about Professor Wichman
and his anti-muslim e-mail. First of all, all individuals living in and
claiming residence in this great land of the United States is PRIVILEGED
by its Constitution; which essentially means that both sides have the
right to voice their opinions and express their thoughts freely. And to
that, whether you or I, or they, agree or disagree with the other side.
Instead of being able to accept another's opinion or thought as his or her
own, we spend more time arguing our own points trying to convince an
unconvinceable of why they should feel the same as we do. The world is
made up of diversity on so many spectrums, and we should all be thankful
it is so; simply we would need no one if we were all the same, and just
think how systematic and robotically we would act and evolve? There would
be no culture, no languages to learn, no theories or philosophies to
study, no rationalizing or reasoning to be understood, no vast music
genre, no voice because there would only be one voice - it would be a very
mundane, hum drum existence. Now, I don't agree that people from other
cultures who have taken residency in the US should bash the country in
which they live. If it is so bad here, then 1) why did you leave your
country to start with or 2) why don't you return to the country from which
you either came from or have ancestry? If you are fleeing a homeland that
has war and strife, famine or hardship, instead of blaming the US for what
it is doing or not doing, be thankful you have a place to which you can
flee to. I read an e-mail sent to me about a supposedly true incident
that occurred I think in California where a Muslim woman was in line at a
convenient store and upon her turn at the counter proceeded to verbally
barade the cashier with accusations and harrassment as to why did "he" do
this or that overseas and why didn't "he" stop doing this or that. A
gentleman in the line stepped up, putting his arm around a US soldier, and
proceeded to explain that while people over in her country were fighting
and killing and the US troops were over there trying to keep peace it was
by them doing so that allowed her to be here in the US and allowing her to
express her anger and frustration. He also added the point that if it
were so bad here then she should return to her country. Of course the
e-mail was much more eloquent than that and more dramatic but that was the
overall gist. Being that the Professor wrote the e-mail of his own accord
and of no representation to the University it is private and he should not
receive any reprimand whatsoever. Had anything he said be false or
slanderous then he could be liable on those grounds. Otherwise, what is
so different about what he is saying from his point of view than what the
students of the association are saying from theirs? The only thing I
found embarrassing was the incorrect spelling of "Moslem." I'll close
with this: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot
change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting
hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
Amen.

Comment: Muslim EID Stamp
Upon reading your comments on the Muslim EID stamp one would reasonably
assume your support of such a stamp. This is not about money. What do you
know about the Koran or the Islam religion and it's primary intention? You
have sighted things that do not include the basic goals of this faith.
Have you seen PBS Steve Emmerson's Jihad in America? Do you know why this
was censored from American broadcasting? Tell me why you have not
suggested even one of the following Muslim bombings that most of us do not
wish to "celebrate" by buying this stamp:
The Muslim bombings of Pan Am Flight 103, World Trade Center 1993, Marine
Barraqcks in Lebanon, Military barracks in Saudi Arabia, American
Embassies in Africa, USS COLE, SEPTEMBER 11th 2001 Twin Towers??? Just to
mention a few atrocities.
What is your religious affiliation?

Comment: Americans are beginning to suffer greatly with financial
difficulties. I would like to know who is really responsible for credit
card companies to double interest rates if late. Some are as high as
29.9% This needs to be stopped. Many are looking at foreclosure and a
slump in the economy. What happened to Greenspans replacement?

Comment:
Pope Benedict had the nerve to quote a 14th century cleric who accused
Muslims of being violent. Understandably the Muslim world is upset. So
to prove that Islam is a religion of peace they rioted, burned the Pope in
effigy, chanted "Death to America," and then just to be sure we all get
the message they ... GUNNED DOWN A NUN!


I think the world is getting the message JUST FINE.

Comment: Regarding the Aid we give to all Arab countries who vote against
the USA (most of the time) at the U.N . Comment: I don't care if they vote
for us or against us, we need to cut aid by 60% to ALL these countries and
start worrying about OUR country! The Dollar is a joke and is weakening as
I speak ( remeber when the Euro was 89 cents to the dollar? now its $1.27)
and we used to joke about taking Canadian coins? They are almost par to
our coins now!The deficit is Outrageous and this so called "War on Terror"
in Iraq was a dupe! Why the majority American people still haven't vented
their outrage over this is a mystery to me. We as a people, need to do
what is best for us and stop meddling in other countries affairs and
distance ourselves from many of them, especially Israel as they seem to do
whatever they want regardless of world public opinion, (much like the U.S
huh?) Don't get me wrong. Following 911 we had the right and duty to go
after Bin Laden and AQ ( Whatever happened to Bin Laden anyway? ) but
this War in Iraq stinks of corruption and special interest ( can you say
Haliburton and big oil Mr Cheny, Mr.Bush and Ms.Rice? ) it really makes
me sick! We should have 120,000 troops in Afghanistan and 0 in Iraq! I
know Saddam is a Murdering scoundrel but he had nothing to do with 911 amd
AQ and actually did not want to cooperate with them at all! This is a true
fact that Bush does not even argue anymore So what was the REAL reason to
go into Iraq when there are so many other dictators just as bad or worse
than S.Hussein around the world that we ignore? Cmon people, do I have to
draw a picture? We need to hold these corrupt Politicians accountable for
their obvious Lies/deceptions and the horrific cost in Terms of lives and
mutilations, Tax dollars, and reputation to the American people! Wake up
America! We need to get back our respect globally and the way to do that
is clear house and rethink our foriegn Policy as to Matters of Aid,
currency strength, domestic investment, and military action just to name a
few. If I were the President I would go after the real culprits!I would
stop feeding the mouths that bite our hands! I would start withdrawng
troops from places like Germany, Japan, and Especially South Korea,( let
the S. Koreans fend for themselves as all they do is backstab us anyway,
all they have to do is look North and they can see what their destiny
would be without us...but how soon they forget huh? ) None of these
countries want us there anyway! Its time for Americans for America! Once
we get our country stable we can start thinking about helping others!
Lets stop kidding ourselves and face facts, we have serious problems right
here at home. The Gangs and murder rate is truly Scary!jh Have you seen
the decay going on across this country? The abandoned homes and factories?
It is sad but we can do something about it now before it is too late. I
hope this has not offended anyone but I just have to say what I feel is
best for this country and my fellow Americans.

Comment: Reference the late lamented Steve Irwin. Nice guy. Genuine man.
Unfortunately the hysteria and public hair-tearing over his untimely death
has reached galactic proportions on Australian media and you may start
getting reports of him being sighted alive and well in Argentina, his zoo
may become an antipodean tourist trap Graceland, and there will be khaki
clad impersonators shouting crikey and waving babies in front of
animatronic crocodiles. Already dozens of dead stingrays with tails
amputated are being found as the dim witted take 'revenge' on the species.
Paul Hogan could sue his estate for infringement of crocodile protocol! I
can think of half a dozen good urban myths just waiting to be promulgated.
Pity he has to be so cheapened in death.

Comment: Please check this out. Please don't send just send me something
that you already have done about "operation dear abby" ... I have been
sending letters on line to service persons for a good part of the year. It
mentions that if you want to you can put your e-mail address in so you can
be contacted. After a few months I put in an e-mail address and have not
received even one e-mail from the "operation dear abby" site. I write
chatty e-mails about fishing and the weather and what is happening in our
local community. I wrote to Dear Abby and got quite a snotty answer about
my motivations. I also mentioned to her that I wondered if the e-mails
really went anywhere because some of them were very inflamatory and not
appropriate (the govt censors would agree) for people who are in harm's
way. Then I started enclosing my e-mail address and saying that I was
becoming skeptical and wondering if anyone was reading these e-mails and
asked for just an "i got it" from anyone reading. Still nothing. I have to
admit that I am becoming quite cynical and wondering if this site is to
make the writers feel good and has nothing to do with our military
personnel's morale. please check this out and don't just send me old
stuff. or let me know who else I can check with. "Dear Abby" is NOT an
option.

Comment: Re: Ben Stein & Anne Graham Lotz:

Have we not had quite enough of the smarmy sanctimony that trots itself
out this time of year, whinging about the "Lost Meaning of Christmas" and
the self-destructive rejection of the "One True God" in our lives?

I have yet to witness ANYONE giving any sort of religious celebrant a hard
time (not counting devout Muslims, who are all suspected of being
insurgent terrorists). What is NOT allowed under the Constitution (so
far) is that hyper-religious, in-your-face/middle-finger US Govt.
subsidized Christianity that so many True Believers want to cram down the
throats of those of us who just don't "get it."

Ben Stein and Anne Graham Lotz make me sick to my stomach. I don't care
if he doesn't care, but no amount of self-righteous breast-beating is
going to get me to accept official govt. support of religious messages,
and THAT is what all this is really about. Anyone who says otherwise is a
fool or a liar. Billy Graham is just another cheap, money-grubbing
anti-Semitic (I heard it myself on the Nixon tapes) tent preacher who
managed to outlive most of his "flock." His fascist son and daughter are
tiresome in the extreme. Spare me.

Well, not only have you contradicted yourself there, you haven't been watching. In my own experience, I have been accosted outside church by over-zealous Jehovah's Witnesses, and attended a community religious event that some other locals picketed because they didn't like the speaker (a famous name, but by no means famous for reasons that Falwell and those sorts are) and felt the need to pester those who attended.

When I watch the news, I see church burnings, synagogue vandalism, the occasional shooting at services, etc.

Comment: Google is in effect a hate mongor. They selectively use anti
semitism as a 'tool' assuring more of the same. How ignorant. America is
based on Judeo Christians ethics. Our laws, our customs, our liberty. If
Google continues 'spinning' facts to slander both Jews and Israel, they
are playing right into the radical Muslim terrorists hands. Shame on You
Google. You insult the memory of 6,000,000 Jews and the United States of
America who defeated Nazi Germany for all of our liberty. You shame what's
holy in America and other democracies when You slam the Jew. There
wouldn't be an America if not for the financing by Solomon and his gift to
America when she fought for her liberty from England. Google, learn Your
history. God bless America for she blesses the Jew. You shame Yourselves
and all of us who use Your service. Osama must love You. A disgrantled
Google user.
