    Here is my opinion about flying the flag on December 7 based on living on Army posts in the 50′s and early 60′s. Many of our parents were WWII vets. When we lived in Shrapnel Village, the dependent housing for Camp Drew and Camp Bender, Japan, our fathers would get together talk. You could hear their anger. My dad almost resigned his commission when he received orders for Japan. He absolutely hated the Japanese, as did many of his friends. I think that they viewed 12/7 as a day of mourning and retribution. Not celebration like July 4.

    I am concerned that children born after 9/11 will just consider this a beautiful light show. “Remember Pearl Harbor” was the rally cry. “Remember New York” should have been our rally cry. Instead we got “go shopping”, “mission accomplished” and “the AQ has been destroyed”.

    We are only war weary for the same reason the US was war weary in Vietnam. We don’t fight to annihilate. We use ROE.

    Ah, community organizing in action.

    While I have a concealed carry permit, I believe open carry is the true answer to these savage times.

    When I was in the Army, fatigues could only be worn off post when going to and from your off post residence and to get gas. When traveling a soldier was required to wear Class A uniform. Many of us wore tropical worsted or khakis trusting that no MP would give us a DF.

    Superintendent Shaner, a veteran, acted like any other stand up vet. He apologized and dealt with the security guard issue.

    As you take the medication made in India, stop for a moment and wonder how pure is the water used in making the medication.

    Thanks. I have sent a message asking to be taken off any Panera online offers and that I will no longer do business with them.

    The human mouth and vocal are capable of producing or not producing sound. If you don’t like “under God”, don’t say it.

    To me Osteen is a motivational speaker and good at it. But he is not a pastor. His televised talks are really thin on scripture.

    My prayers to your friends. Sometimes even though you are in back in the world but you are still in country.

    Tell your friends that many of us are praying for them.

    I absolutely have to be the only one commenting who memorized the multiple table provided on a Pee Chee.

    I have no Constitutional obligation to respect the religious freedom of ISIS adherents in the ME. Since when does the American 1st Amendment right of freedom of religion transfer to non-Americans?

    Maybe you should catch up on what ISIS, AQ and its’ franchises, the Muslim Brotherhood and the assorted other muslim groups say they will do and what they want. The extremist of islam seem to be on the fast lane to dominating the ME and they have no compunction against killing non-muslims. Maybe you should watch the beheading videos of Mr. Foley and Mr. Sotloff and listen to the words spoken by their beheader, who may be a British citizen.

    I guess I am just an uneducated former military intelligence officer but I do pay attention especially since my son has 4 deployments under his belt.

    Finally, where are the Americans of the Islamic faith who stand up publically and denounce the religious violence in the ME? After 9/11 where were they? After the Boston bombing where were they? Do you not see what ISIS is doing to non-muslims?

    I feel sorry for you. Have you ever had someone try to kill you? It creates great clarity of mind. I suspect you need either obtain clarity of mind or tattoo victim on your forehead.

    Here is my world view:

    You sleep peacefully at night because rough men stand ready to violence on your behalf and si vis pacem, para bellum.

    I am going to climb aboard the “way back machine”. (Rocky and Bullwinkle)

    Lost in the mist of time lives a year called 1963. In 1963, boys couldn’t wear jeans to school. Girls skirts had to be below the knee. Some how we knew what the rules were. We learned from our parents. The high school sent letters to the parents listing all the rules, including the dress code. Clothing costs were predictable which most parents loved.

    I have no white guilt over the what happened to the American Indian. My ancestors had a foreign country invade their country, outlaw their religion, kill their ministers, convert or die, confiscate their land, outlaw their language and destroy their culture. My ancestors rose up in rebellion and failed to win. Sounds like what happened to the American Indians except it was in Ireland and the English were the culprits.

    The sooner that every American man, woman and child realize they are soldiers in an unwanted war, the better off we, as a nation, will be.

    What Schultz and other liberal talking heads don’t seem to understand is that Islamics draw no distinction between them and other Americans. They want to kill or convert and rule over all of us. They are very clear on their agenda.

    If my brother were an atheist, I would hope that he loved me enough not to ask me to not pray. If he did ask that of me, I would pray anyway. To an atheist, this should be kind of like no harm no foul.

    By the way, your arrogance is showing.

    “Not in a combat role”. What BS. Any country where the people shoot Americans is a combat zone.

    If you drill down on the Catholic Church, you will find we Traditional Catholics and the Pentecostal Catholics are in the upper left quadrant. We Traditional Catholics are about where the Baptists are on the graph.

    Bachman is correct. Islam is the announced enemy of Western Civilization. It has been defeated in the past but has reconstituted. Now is the time to eradicate Islam from the face of the earth. We may be sick of war. I know I am soul weary for my son who is now in Afghanistan on his 4th deployment. But, we are in a war regardless of our war weariness.

  • [2] September 3, 2014 at 8:29am

    Mr. Foley and Mr. Sotloff died as soldiers engaged in warfare and didn’t know it. Our enemy has declared there are no innocents in their war against Western Civilization. From the most elderly to the most young, we are all combatants. They do not recognize the Geneva Convention on the Rules of Land Warfare. Maybe some day it will dawn on Americans that we are all soldiers whether we want to be or not.

    The only true answer to the war that Islam has created is, sadly, the eradication of Islam.

    My prayers are with the families of Mr. Foley and Mr. Sotloff.
