Signs like this one have been posted in all the Iraqi Army compound port-a-potties. Initially there were no signs, but over a short period of time, it was determined something had to be done.
I saw it at Lost in Iraq
Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement in recognition of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins today:
“As Muslims around the world recognize the holy month of Ramadan, we take this opportunity to celebrate the contributions of millions of Muslim Americans. They enrich our country while deepening America’s respect for Muslims here at home and around the world. As they observe this sacred month, they honor Islam’s teachings of self-discipline, compassion and commitment to family.
“As we celebrate Ramadan, we are reminded that we are a country of many faiths, and as such, we must continue to work to promote religious tolerance; our diversity as a nation is one of our greatest strengths.”
Hmmmm…..Let’s see, the Muslims don’t like the little Pig with Winnie the Pooh. So they want anything to do with pigs banned….i.e. calendars, statues etc.
The benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, instructed employees that all pig-related novelty items are henceforth banned from its offices, so as not to offend Muslim staff. This includes pig toys, porcelain figures, calendars, and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. There’s no mention of piggybanks, but presumably those must go too. The edict came down after a Muslim complained.
“Some kindergartens and smaller shopping centres in Australia have banned Santa, deeming the festive philanthropist politically incorrect for religious reasons, potentially offensive to Muslims…”
“An Italian school’s substitution of a nativity play with Little Red Riding Hood so as not to offend Muslim children”
“Burger King will be withdrawing and changing the logo for its ice cream cups because, if one looks very closely and has a good imagination, the logo appeared to some Muslims to look sort of like the word Allah in Arabic if it was viewed from just the right angle. Not wanting to offend, Burger King caved in to the constantly complaining and whining Muslims…”
“Muslim or Arab prisoners could take umbrage if staff wore a red cross badge. It’s also got associations with the far-right. Prison officers should be seen to be neutral. Doyle added that it was now time for England to find a new flag and a patron saint who is “not associated with our bloody past and one we can all identify with.”
If the British give in it will add more fuel to discarding their own identity. Every time any of us give in to Muslims complaints like this, or any country caters to the whims of the Muslims, we give them more power to take control. Cair is an enabler of terrorists. We need to say NO to their demands and complaints, tuff s$%^ if they don’t like something, close the mosques and emplode them (they use these Mosques in America to meet and plan terrorists acts), close down the Saudia Universities on our land ( they teach hate for America at these schools) and my list could go on and on.
This is Islam’s plan for us, step by step and many of these things have already been in play……………
Terminate America’s freedom of speech by replacing it with statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills
Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting Christianity is for whites only. What they fail to tell African-Americans is that it was Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves. In fact, the Arabic word for black and slave is the same “Abed”.
Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.
Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about favorable Legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.
Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a controlling stock.
Yield to the fear of the imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America – black gold. America ’s economy depends on oil and 41 percent of it comes from the Middle East.
Yell “foul”, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un-American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran anytime Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.
Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamists who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions and get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. (Ever notice how numerous Muslim doctors in America are, when their countries need them more desperately than America?) Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way.
Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:
– Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961).
– Use no birth control whatsoever – every baby of Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later.
– Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them (10,000 annually). Then divorce them and remarry every five years – since one can’t legally marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America
– Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants (so far 2,000 released inmates have joined al-Qaida worldwide). Only a few “sleeper cells” have been captured in Afghanistan and on American soil.
Reading , writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1,500 should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are currently 300 exclusively Muslim schools in the U.S. which teach loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution. In January of 2002, Saudi Arabia ’s Embassy in Washington mailed 4,500 packets of the Quran and videos promoting Islam to America ‘s high schools– free of charge. Saudi Arabia would not allow the U.S. to reciprocate.
Provide very sizeable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish “Centers for Islamic studies” with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher-education institutions.
Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, when in truth, Islam hijacked the terrorists.
Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.
Nullify America ‘s sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans with reports of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls.
Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not America ‘s justice system.
Open numerous charities throughout the U.S., but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.
Raise interest in Islam on America ‘s campuses by insisting freshman take at least one course on Islam.
Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by Internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media.
Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by hook or crook.
Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the U.S. by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethic groups in America.
Oriana Fallaci, an Italian journalist, who is one of the few journalists in the world who dares to attack Islam and the fact that Europe has surrendered to terror, wrote a passage in her book Apocalypse that is appropriate for the struggle against the Arab enemy, and for the struggle against Islam.
“Resignation leads to apathy. Apathy leads to inertia. Inertia leads to indifference. Indifference paralyzes the instinct for self-defense, that is, the instinct to fight back.”
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5, 2005 – The devil may have gone down to Georgia, but the Charlie Daniels Band went to the Association of the U. S. Army convention here Oct. 4 to pay a musical tribute to the troops and thank them for their service.
Daniels, a rock-solid supporter of the U. S. military who’s been entertaining troops around the world for some 35 years, dazzled a foot-stomping, hand-clapping crowd in a jam-packed ballroom at a reception hosted by U. S. Army Europe.
Army Gen. B. B. Bell, USAREUR and 7th Army commander, said he invited Daniels to the event after the legendary performer fiddled his way into the hearts of U. S. troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Those visits, as well as the Oct. 4 performance, were part of the “Stars for Stripes” program, which brings top entertainment to U. S. troops, particularly those serving in remote locations not typically visited by United Service Organizations tours.
“He went to the most difficult and dangerous places” in the U. S. Central Command area of operations and entertained deployed military members without accepting a penny for his services, Bell said of Daniels and his band during an interview with the American Forces Press Service.
“He gives of himself selflessly,” Bell said. “He’s got all the qualities of a great soldier. ”
As a tribute to Bell, a Tennessee native, Daniels played a rousing rendition of “Rocky Top,” then slowed the action down with a solemn delivery of “Amazing Grace,” encouraging those in the crowd to sing along.
“You should consider Charlie one of us,” Army Brig. Gen. Russell Frutiger, USAREUR’s deputy chief of staff for personnel, told the group.
Frutiger called Daniels “a relentless morale booster” who not only goes into harm’s way to serenade the troops, but also launched “Operation Heartstrings” in partnership with Stars for Stripes to put musical instruments, recorded music, and DVD and CD players into the hands of deployed troops.
During the concert, retired Army Gen. Gordon Sullivan, former Army chief of staff and now president of AUSA, presented Daniels an award honoring his years of service to the military. “Thank you for what you have given to the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines . . . and the American people,” Sullivan said.
Just as during Daniels’ overseas tours, when he typically spent hours following his concerts signing autographs for every deployed servicemember who approached him, Daniels wrapped up his Oct. 4 performance meeting the troops, signing autographs and posing for photos.
Army Staff Sgt. Wendy Cooper from the 200th Theater Distribution Brigade, based in Kaiserslautern, Germany, was among those who stood in line for an opportunity to meet and get photographed with Daniels following the performance.
“He truly shows his support, and that means a lot,” said Cooper, who stationed herself at the front of the group during the performance for a close-up view of Daniels and his band. “It’s great to know that people support us. ”
“He’s absolutely awesome,” agreed Army Capt. Elizabeth Barnaby, an occupational therapist assigned to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, in Germany. “I can’t thank him enough for being that supportive. ”
While signing autographs, Daniels told the American Forces Press Service he remembers the day Pearl Harbor was bombed in 1941 and has had a love affair with the military ever since.
“Everyone in uniform is a hero to me,” he said. “I’ve felt that way since I was 5 years old, and nothing has ever changed. ”
In closing his concert, Daniels expressed his ongoing support and hinted that the Charlie Daniels Band will continue to visit troops when they’re deployed.
“Thank you for what you’re doing around the world,” he said. “And wherever you happen to be, don’t be surprised if we show up. ”
“This is a pick that was made from weakness. There was an opportunity here to show strength and confidence, and I don’t think this is it. There are plenty of known quantities out there who would be superb for the court.” – Rush Limbaugh
One of the things I will never understand is this….. we are in power and Bush has won twice and we are in the majority. We do not have to cow tow to the left, kiss up to them and yet time and time again I see this happening. It angers me beyond words. I watch the political talking heads on Sunday mornings and it is ONLY the Republicans that come on and say things like “My friend” so and so (a Republican saying to a Democrat) My Friend? You will NOT hear a Democrat say that…..I never have never heard it !!!!! That is major kissing up and it is NOT necessary.
I don’t like our country to show weakness, our Republican leadership to show weakness, it goes against everything I believe in about America. I want our military to be feared by our enemy and respected by those they fight for. That is why I despise the anti war commies that live in the freedom our military fight for them, but they do not respect our military. I want our country to be feared and respected for our strength as well as our fighting for freedom for others to have freedom in their countries like we enjoy.
If you show you are weak to others, in sports, in chess, in war, as a parent, as a boss, in decision making, if you show weakness to your opponents you give them the upper hand, you encourage them to continue to bully you, to attack you, to take you apart.
But if you stand by your convictions and stay strong, not giving in to be well liked, to avoid confrontation in matters of character, honor and choices you make in life…..many times the bullies soon disappear and give up, the enemy will know how strong you are and know they don’t have a chance. Oh the enemy will still hate you but so what. I would rather be hated by the enemy then be mediocre and wishie washie on things I believe in to try and appease anyone.
So as I said earlier, I want these choices for the Supreme Court to be held higher than politics. Most definitely not choices made to avoid confrontation between parties, or to appease those that show so little regard to our Constitution as the Democrats have done over the years. The Constitution is NOT about politics it is our very bone marrow of what we are about.
I want my President to stand tall in his beliefs, those beliefs that were the ones that caused me to vote for him in the first place. And NOT to cave in to the crowd of agitators and attackers from the left that are trying to wear him down little by little with their constant barrage of lies, innuendo’s and slander over the years. If Bush had stayed strong from day one and not given in to them over these two terms as he has periodically he would not feel the pressure he does now if this is a decision of appeasement.
If you talk the talk then by golly you damn well better walk it.If you get my vote on the premise you will be strong and not weak against those wanting to destroy our Constitution and our freedoms in this country….then you damn well better keep your word, stay strong and not let the anti- American crowd get to you no matter what. Bush was so strong about going after the terrorists, I felt so proud of him, I beamed with pride in our President and in our response to the attacks on us. I have always known President Bush is not, has not been and will never be a true Conservative. The borders etc. have shown me this, his kissing up to the left when I felt it was wrong and not necessary when we are in the majority on several issues.
Our nation’s future depends on decisions made today by those we entrust with this duty for the Supreme Court. This decision must be made from strength not weakness for someone that will put our Constitution first and foremost. If Meirs was so strong so right for this position, this country, those of us that are political junkies……well my bet is we would have heard of her before now and would already be impressed. As for me, I am NOT impressed and right now I am extremely disappointed and hell I am furious!
“History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid” – General Dwight D. Eisenhower
“There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which
will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation
of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to
repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful
instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we
are at all times ready for war.” –George Washington

“Her dedication to the U.S. Air Force and serving her country was evident in all aspects of who this young lady was,” he said.
“Team Goodfellow and the San Angelo community are deeply saddened by this tragic loss of one of our cherished family members,” Colonel Bethel said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time. We ask that all Americans keep Airman Jacobson, her family and the men and women serving in the military, overseas and in the United States in their thoughts and prayers as they continue to keep America free.”
Airman 1st Class Elizabeth Jacobson she will be remembered as an American Hero. We all owe her so much. She was there for all of us, defending our freedom, helping us live in a safe country here in the USA, and helping to bring freedom to a country that has never known the freedoms we have here.

ONE MORE ROLL
We toast our hearty comrades who have fallen from the skies, and were gently caught by God’s own hand to be with him on High.
To dwell among the soaring clouds they’ve known so well before. From victory roll to tail chase, at heaven’s very door.
As we fly among them there, we’re sure to head their plea. To take care my friend, watch your six, and do one more roll for me.
— Commander Jerry Coffee, Hanoi, 1968
