OK this is a bit off topic but you really need to read it.

Just a few thoughts from my desk.

A couple of days after 9/11 in 2001 I felt I had to get something off my chest so I sat down and wrote what I was feeling. I ended up writing a poem or verse as it where. I hope you enjoy it, you may feel the same as I did then. I still feel the same now as I did when I wrote it. I would also like everyone who visits my post to please read on as I have even more to say. Thank You.

I am a Son a Father and a Husband
I am an American, a Patriot, a Soldier
I am a lover of Freedom, a Fighter for Freedom
An American Patriot, A Soldier of Freedom
A defender of the American way of life
I cried for the first time on September 11th 2001
My Freedom was challenged
My Passion grew deeper
My love for my Country Stronger
I CRIED for those lost
My Patriotism more Passionate
I Will Stand, I will Fight, I will not forget
I Am a Passionate Patriot

Okay where do we start? The Constitution? The Mosque? Freedom of Speech? The World Trade Center? Freedom of Religion? Immigration? Oh please don’t get me started on immigration.

The Constitution gives me an American Citizen born and bred the right to choose my own religion. I can worship any God I want, I can even choose not to worship any God If I so choose. This does not give you or anyone else the right to force your God or belief s on me. I also have the right to defend my own belief whether with words or by force e.g. the right to keep and bear arms. I do not care if your God was a rock and I don’t care if you pray to that rock, put once you throw that rock at me then You have thrown the first stone. The rock in this metaphor is your God or your belief if some of you didn’t pick up on that. Again I do not care what you think just don’t tell me what to think.

Well I guess that covers about half of my talking points. I like to try to keep everything short and sweat or straight to the point.

The World Trade Center and the Mosque, that almost sounds like the name of a children’s book doesn’t it. This is nothing more then child’s play in that the Muslims are only trying to force their beliefs on us the US, kind of like they did in the year 691 when they erected the Dome of the Rock in Israel. If we allow the Muslims to create a Mosque this close to Ground Zero we would be giving them a foot hold on our beliefs and our way of life. Please do not get me wrong. I have no issue with Muslims or the faith of Islam as long as they afford me the same courtesy.

Lastly, a few choice words on Immigration.

For the love of God people close the God Damn Boarders. Once the Boarders are closed then and only then can you fix the problems with in the Department of Immigration. Do not think for one moment that Boarder Security and Immigration Reform is the same thing. Look If you fix the problems inside the Department of Immigration with all the RED TAPE and APLICATION WAIT TIME there wont be a problem on the boarder. The only GOD DAMN way to fix it is to FIRST CLOSE THE BOARDER AND DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL IMMAGRENTS. Then and only then can you fix it.

Thank you, for your time.

  1. Most of your post here was thought-provoking. However, I have to comment on what you said about the mosque - literally being built city blocks away from Ground Zero - and how Muslims are trying to "force" their religion on the U.S. First of all, they aren't doing anything the rest of the religions in this country haven't done. Secondly, there are many other churches right next to that location, what gives them the right to be any closer? Third, stop blaming an entire religion for the actions of a few extremist morons.

    People need to put an end to the hype and look at the facts. The government is responsible for the attacks. Plain and simple. Terrorists wouldn't have been able to do ANY of it without the government's neglect, and outright refusal to stop them. The media is telling us all that it was the Muslims that did it, but reality is that we are being manipulated by government and corporate interests that are VERY focused on something other than religious hysteria - it's called OIL.

    All of the extremist Muslim actions that have happened around the world since Islam was born are comparable to the actions of Christian branches. Please explain to me why crashing a couple of planes and killing 3,000 people is worse than the Grand Inquisition, the Hitler regime, or Christians bombing abortion clinics. For that matter, please enlighten us all as to why no one is focused on the tragedy of our economic depression that resulted from corporate greed, which got Wall Street a nice payout of $700 billion by the way, which has ended far more lives than 9/11 did.

    I completely agree with your comments about immigration.


Let me know what you would do different.
