Is the press Homophobic?
It certainly seems so; the press is incredibly Selective in their reporting, of the "Gay Community."

It isn't so much what they say, it is what they don't say. Anything that may be seen as negative related to homosexuals, is almost never reported; only those things that seem to promote that group's agenda is reported. It is as if the Press is afraid of gays. 

Main Entry: ho·mo·pho·bia
   Pronunciation: "hO-m&-'fO-bE-&
   Function: noun
   Date: 1969
   : irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against
   homosexuality or homosexuals
 - ho·mo·pho·bic /-'fO-bik/ adjective
Events like Gay Pride marches, where confrontations often occur, the press is scrupulous about their editing and camera angles, as evidenced by any comparison between the main stream media's coverage and C-Span's coverage. C-Span just turns on their cameras and microphones, and lets the chips fall where they may--NO EDITORIALIZING.

Another example of their selectivity, is their inability to "connect the dots" when reporting on Pedophiles, or for that matter, Serial Killers; it turns out that almost all of these people are Homosexual. Of course, if you depend on the media for all of your information, this has to come as "news to you." 

Maybe, I have it all wrong: could it be that the the Press isn't really afraid of gays, it is only a case of their not having come out of the closet  yet themselves?

Vietnam War

Vietnam was not a Civil War, it was a Proxy War, fought by the North on behalf of the Soviets, which means it was part of the ongoing Cold War. 

If Ho Chi Min had given a Shit about his people, he would taken our Money, not our Napalm!

Blacks in America

Instead of Pissing & Moaning about Slavery, and how they are owed Reparations for their ancestors being brought here as Slaves, they ought to thank God for that fact. If anybody owes anything, it is they! 

If but for that fact, they would be running through the jungle with a spear in their hand, looking for their next meal; instead, some have their next meal brought to them already killed, Skinned, cured, and cooked!

Being Black in America

I don't have any idea what it is like to be Black in a predominately White society.

As a young man newly in the military, I recall being on a train heading to my new station in Illinois. As I started into the dinning car to have a meal, I was stopped by a burley man who sternly informed me I couldn't go in. When I asked why not, he said service men weren't allowed in the dinning car. This really pissed me off, and I gave him a ration of Shit, where upon he informed he would report me to my OIC. Having just finished basic training I was conditioned to take orders, so I backed off.

I have never forgotten that episode in my life, and the feeling of being discriminated against, as well as not standing up for myself; it left a "bitter taste in my mouth."

From this experience I can only guess how I would feel if I were confronted by this kind of treatment every day of my life. I probably would not handle it nearly as well as those who swallow hard, bite their tongue, and continue on...

And how would I feel seeing this happening to my Mother, my Wife, or especially, to my children.

 The Myth of a Free Press

If by Free Press, one means the Press is free to choose sides, then yes, it is Free.

The so called "Forth Estate," is the most undemocratic, unrepresentative, and powerful arm of our Republic. A very scary thought indeed!

 Recycling

Duh!
As Gomer Pyle would say, "what a Dumb, thing, what a Dumb, thing; Dumb, Dumb, Dumb!" 

It is a 'P C' thing to make the Very Stupid among us, feel good about themselves: "Oh, look at me, I Recycle." 

Recycling hasn't "Saved" a Damn thing! 
We as taxpayers pay more to recycle our "garbage" (read that HIDE) than we save. The only demonstrable savings comes from aluminum cans--and that's from power consumption not the material itself.

If recycling were profitable, you can bet we would see the Hype as to "how much we are saving."

A PRAYER

From Rush:
A few weeks ago a friend of mine faxed me a copy of a prayer and I'd like to share it with all of you. If you are offended by prayers, consider yourself warned. A prayer follows, so if you don't like prayers, stop reading. 

This particular prayer caused quite a stir. A Kansas minister named Joe Wright was asked to give the opening prayer for a session of the Kansas Senate. He offered the senators a bit more than they'd bargained for and, in fact, some of them were so offended that they walked out. Afterwards, the minister's church was swamped with supportive phone calls and he has been receiving requests for copies from all over the world. 

Here is what Rev. Wright said: 

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to ask 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 confess that We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.

We have worshiped other gods and called it multiculturalism. 

We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle. 

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 political. 

We have coveted our neighbors possessions and called it ambition. 

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of statement. 

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. 

Search us, Oh, God, and let know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of your Will, and we ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Amen."

A VISITOR FROM THE PAST By Mr. Thelen Paul, Route 2, Box 53-C
Eau Claire, Michigan 49111 
© 1986 by Mr. Thelen Paulk
I had a dream the other night, I didn't understand. A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand. His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed. He took off his three cornered hat, and speaking low, he said: 

"We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty. We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny. For future generations, this legacy we gave. In this, the land of the free and home of the brave." 
 

"The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you'd always keep. But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep. Your freedoms lost, you're no more than a slave. In this, the land of the free and home of the brave." 

"You buy permits to travel, permits to own a gun, Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one. On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent.  Although you have no voice in choosing how the money's spent." 

"Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate. Your Christian values can't be taught, according to the state. You read about the current news, in a regulated press. You pay a tax you do not owe to please the IRS." 

"Your money is no longer made of Silver or of Gold. You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled. You pay for crimes that make our Nation turn from God in shame. You've taken Satan's number, as you've traded in your name." 

"You've given government control, to those who do you harm, So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm, And keep your country deep in debt, put men of God in jail, Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail." 

"Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn. Your daughters visit doctors so their children won't he born. Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores, And send your sons to slaughter fighting other peoples' wars." 

Can you regain the freedom, for which we fought and died? Or don't you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride? Are there no more values for which you'll fight to save? Or do you wish your children, live in fear and be a slave? 

"Sons of the Republic: Arise and take a stand! Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land! Preserve our Great Republic, and each GOD-Given Right. And pray to God to keep the torch of Freedom burning bright!" 


As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from which he came. His words were true, we are not free, we have ourselves to blame. For even now as tyrants trample each GOD-Given Right. We only watch and tremble, to afraid to stand and fight! 

If he stood there by your bedside, in a dream, while you're asleep, And wonders what remains of our Rights he fought to keep, What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave: "Is this still the land of the free and the home of the brave???"

The USS COLE

From: Kramer, C. YN2
Sent: Thursday, October 19, 2000 12:07 PM
To: ENG DEPT; NAV/ADMIN DEPT; OPS DEPT; SUPPLY DEPT; WEPS/CS DEPT
Subject:  USS COLE and her crew

One of my friends in Norfolk, forwarded me this letter that was sent to his command.  It was written by an officer who flies SH-60B’s off the USS Hawes.  I thought you might like to read it.
v/r, YN2 Kramer

"It wasn’t until a few days ago though, that we started doing something that I feel may be the first thing I’ve seen in my short Naval career that has truly made a difference.  Right now we’re supporting the USS COLE and her crew in Aden.  When the attack occurred we were a day away.  Just by luck we happened to be on our way out of the Gulf and headed towards the Suez and could get here in a relatively short amount of time.  I know what you all have seen on CNN, because we have seen it too.

I just want you all to know that what you see doesn’t even scratch the surface.  I’m not going to get into it for obvious reasons.  But I will tell you that right now there are 250+  sailors just a few miles away living in hell on Earth.  I’m sitting in a nice air conditioned state room, they’re sleeping out on the decks at night.  You can’t even imagine the conditions they’re living in, and yet they are still fighting 24 hours a day to save their ship and free the bodies of those still trapped and send them home.  As bad as it is, they’re doing an incredible job. The very fact that these people are still functioning is beyond my comprehension.
Whatever you imagine as the worst, multiply it by ten and you might get there.  Today I was tasked to photo rig the ship and  surrounding area.  It looked so much worse than I had imagined,  unbelievable really, with debris and disarray everywhere, the ship listing, the hole in her side.  I wish I had the power to relay to you all what I have seen, but words just won’t do it.  I do want to tell you the first thing that jumped out at me - the Stars and Stripes flying.  I can’t tell you how that made me feel...even in this God forsaken hell hole.
Our flag was more beautiful than words can describe.  Then I started to notice the mass of activity going on below, scores of people working non-stop in 90 plus degree weather to save this ship.  They’re doing it with almost no electrical power and they’re sleeping (when they can sleep) outside on the decks because they can’t stand the smell or the heat or the darkness inside.  They only want to eat what we bring them because they’re all scared of eating something brought by the local vendors.
Even with all that, the USS COLE and her crew is sending a message guys, and it’s that even acts of cowardice and hate can do nothing to the spirit and pride of  the United States.  I have never been so proud of what I do, or of the men and women that I serve with as I was today.  There are sixteen confirmed dead sailors who put it on the line for all of us, and some of them are still trapped here.

Please take a minute to pray for their families and say a word of thanks for their sacrifice - one made so that we can live the lives that we do.  All of you that serve with me, thank you.  All of you that have loved ones that serve, thank you."

Please feel free to pass this on to those you think will appreciate it.
V/R
LT Landry

A Most Remarkable Picture

Click on image to enlarge
This awesome picture was taken in Bitteroot National Forest in Montana on August 6, 2000.  The photographer, John McColgan, is a fire behavior analyst from Fairbanks, Alaska.  He took the picture with a digital camera.

Because he was working at the time he took the picture, he cannot profit from it; however, we feel the picture is a once-in-a-lifetime shot and should be shared."  [quote presumably from professional colleagues who put this picture on the Internet.]------- Thanks to Nick England for passing along this truly remarkable pic.
