Bill of Rights
Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

WHERE, pray tell, does this Amendment say one word about the BANISHMENT of religion from our society?

What I do not now, and never will, understand is HOW that very clearly worded, unambiguous amendment has been so misinterpreted over the years – and by some very well educated, supposedly intelligent men and women.

Regardless of how it has happened, the fact remains that the “secularists” are doing everything in their power to remove faith and values entirely from the decision making and public processes in this country, entirely to our nation’s detriment.

So what can or should we do about this relentless assault on the foundation of our nation’s most basic structure?

To start with, we must rigorously adhere to OUR own personal faith and values, whatever that might be. I have been pretty casual about my Catholicism for years, but in recent years, not so much! Many things have conspired to draw me back toward my faith, including the despicable examples of immorality and licentiousness exhibited by our former President, the appallingly amoral William Jefferson Clinton, to whom it has always appeared to me, faith is only a stage prop for political purposes.

In addition, the clear and absolutely unwavering faith of our current President has been an inspiration. Perhaps the greatest refutation of the “Bush lied” canard is my strong belief that George W. Bush’s own spiritual and moral compass would not permit him to do so.

There is so much evidence in our daily “bad” news of the compelling need for a return to the morality and belief structure of former generations. School shootings, rampant promiscuity (and the accompanying diseases), amoral politicians (well they’ve mostly always been that way to some degree but in my view, they are far worse than ever), the attitude that “if it feels good, do it”, the utter garbage being foisted upon us by the moral bankrupts of this world – in books, movies, television and particularly music, the incessant and dangerous drug dependency of so many Americans (prescription drugs are STILL drugs). People don’t try to get through tough times supported by character all that often any more. Instead they pop a Xanax or have a couple of shots of Scotch!

We have a great example of steadfast morality in our President. As individuals and as a nation, we should be striving to emulate his example.

In the April 17, 2006 issue of the Telegraph (UK) a writer named Amir Taheri examines why Iran wants the bomb. Amir Taheri was formerly the Executive Editor of Kayhan, Iran's largest daily newspaper, but now lives in Europe. He seems to know what he’s talking about in his analysis of the present political landscape in Iran.

Mr. Taheri basically claims that Iran’s intentions are to (falsely) appear to back off on nuclear ambitions (which are directly related to a desire to provoke a "clash of civilizations" in which the Muslim world, led by Iran, takes on the "infidel" West, led by the United States, and defeats it in a slow but prolonged contest that, in military jargon, sounds like a low intensity, asymmetrical war.

The theory is that they must delay moving forward until George W. Bush is no longer an issue. Their timetable to dominance has been frustrated by the presidency of W because he is an aberration among Western leaders – not the kind to “cut and run”. Iran's current strategy, therefore, is to wait Bush out. And that, by "divine coincidence", corresponds to the time Iran needs to develop its nuclear arsenal, thus matching the only advantage that the infidel enjoys.

According to Taheri, Iran and its leader Ahmadinejad believe that hundreds of millions of Muslim "ghazis" (holy raiders) are keen to become martyrs while the infidel youths, loving life and fearing death, hate to fight. (Tell THAT to the Marines!) Islam also has four-fifths of the world's oil reserves, and so controls the lifeblood of the infidel. All of this sounds all too plausible, given the non-stop screeching of the Defeatocrats in Congress and the assorted leftwingnut pinheads on both Coasts in the neverending campaign of the useful idiots to lose Iraq and humiliate President Bush.

Mr. Taheri’s prediction is that at the end of the 12 days still left of the United Nations' Security Council "deadline", Ahmadinejad will announce a "temporary suspension" of uranium enrichment as a "confidence building measure". Taheri also predicts that, some time in June Ahmadinejad will agree to ask the Islamic parliament to consider signing the additional protocols of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT). Such maneuvers would allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director, Muhammad El-Baradei, and Britain's Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, to congratulate Iran for its "positive gestures" and denounce talk of sanctions, let alone military action. The confidence building measures would never amount to anything, but their announcement would be enough to prevent the G8 summit, hosted by Russia in July, from moving against Iran.

All of this is truly terrifying in scope, but more than that, it sounds pretty familiar. Isn’t this more or less what North Korea pulled on our government during President Clinton’s administration?

I guess we’ll know when the Security Council’s deadline runs out. In the meantime, more than ever, I thank God for George W. Bush.

Donald Rumsfeld has been called the most capable and successful Secretary of Defense in our nation’s history. I don’t necessarily know if that is true since I’m no expert on military matters. What I do know is that the calls for his ouster started on practically the first day he showed up at the Defense Department for work and have continued pretty much nonstop since then. What I also know is that this is a man with no patience for fools or knaves and the bureaucracy at the Defense Department and the Pentagon was absolutely loaded with both.

The retired generals who are now calling for his ouster are very likely some of those who had reached their position of entrenched comfort and were not at all pleased when the seldom tactful Donald Rumsfeld showed up with a broom and a new way of doing things! Or they have a book coming out soon. Or both.

Meanwhile, true to his character (and the man has tons of that on his worst day), Rumsfeld continues to run his department and see to it that the will of the Commander in Chief is done. In addition, Rummy has come out swinging, once again proving that you mess with this completely secure and confident man at grave risk.

Mr. Rumsfeld and senior military commanders in Iraq are planning to meet Tuesday with a group of retired officers and civilian analysts as part of an effort by the Pentagon to stanch calls for Mr. Rumsfeld's resignation from a half-dozen retired generals.

Perhaps the most fascinating and comforting thing about this latest flummery by the mainstream media is that the President, at whose pleasure Donald Rumsfeld serves our nation, is quietly proving once again that George W. Bush is a steadfast and utterly loyal human being.

Here’s something else I know. This country is STILL at war and the calls for Donald Rumsfeld’s ouster are detrimental to our nation’s security and the safety and security of our military who are still in harm’s way. SHAME on these leftwing idiots and the mainstream media. The useful idiots of the left keep saying “We oppose the war but we support the troops!”
To that sophistry I have but one word: Bullshit!

The best part of spring is that it’s a chance for a do-over of sorts. Or it should be. If you are a Christian, the Lord has risen from the tomb signaling a rebirth for the human race. Trees are turning green again; flowers are beginning to bloom and the weather isn’t unbearably hot as yet.

I’m compelled to ponder whether there will be a rebirth of our Nation as a result of the blatant attempts to both invade and overwhelm America by the hordes of illegals from the South – as well as other places it can be disturbing to contemplate.

We have been so hammered by the spewing of American self-hatred from the left and Bush Derangement Syndrome that it almost seems it would take more strength than we really have to push back against this blatant attempt to overthrow our way of life.

When I was a little girl, my father explained to me that other nations had underestimated the will and strength of the mainstream American and had lived (or not) to regret that choice. He very firmly told me that people like Josef Stalin would live to regret underestimating us, and that Adolf Hitler and Emperor Hirohito had already done so. I was probably only about 4 years old at the time and the Second World War had only recently ended and my father was responding to my questions about why people were throwing paper out of windows onto the heads of returning American soldiers in the newsreel at our local theatre. (Told you I was OLD! Yes, I remember newsreels.)

Right now, this Spring, I am praying as I’ve never prayed before that my beloved departed father was totally correct in his assessment. I believe our Republic is in growing peril from the invaders of our nation (illegal immigrants) and from the lassitude of our politicians who are too lazy or cynical to defend us.

Let me ask a question – knowing this is likely a logistical impossibility. If 20 million mainland Chinese came streaming into our country, would you politicians consider THAT an act of war? Why then does Vicente Fox get off the hook for encouraging the same activity?

Throughout my country, millions of INVADERS are demanding the same rights that I enjoy as an American citizen, without the concomitant responsibilities. And at the same time, the Democratic Party has been and is continuing to do everything in their power to exacerbate this situation for their own POLITICAL GAIN, without regard to the security and safety of our nation up to and including registering these NON-American-citizens to vote.

My question is this: What about the nearly 300 million LEGAL Americans? Where are our rights? Where is our REPRESENTATION? In 1776 this country was founded, at least in part, upon the principle that there would be no taxation without representation. It appears to me - and I suspect to many other Americans - that their elected representatives are not representing their interests, but rather the interests of those who scream loudest and have the least right to do so, never mind paying taxes.

The Republicans in Congress - both houses - have done an appalling job of representing the people who elected them in many areas, but particularly in the area of border security and preventing the influx of ultimately disruptive, lawless and damaging ILLEGAL aliens, particularly from Mexico. And our President, despite his stellar record on most fronts, has seemingly supported this spineless pandering to special interests who don't even have the right to be here.

So what then are we to do? I believe that every Senator and Congressman who is up for reelection this November must be required to speak up clearly and without equivocation on this subject. And then the voters will vote on their reelection accordingly.

In the meantime, those bloviating Democrats like Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton, who are PANDERING in the most despicable way to this underclass who are NOT here legally and are thus lawbreakers from the start, no matter what their good intentions may be, really need to be chastised about their absolute disloyalty to American values with clarion tones in no uncertain terms by everyone who believes that to be true.
