Must Read: Nuke Strike on US?

I haven't been blogging alot lately, because things have been busy. In what little free time I've had, I've been researching issues connecting Al Qaeda to infiltration along America's southern border. I'm not ready to write yet on what I'm finding out, I still have more research to do. Meanwhile, Yankee Doodle over at Stop Islamic Conquest has an article that is related.

That dang Yankee ;) found some information that Al Qaeda may already have nuclear weapons, and may smuggled them across the border from Mexico into the US. So far, I can't prove YD wrong. I wish I could!

Please read YD's article. If you have any good leads or links about Al Qaeda and our southern border please leave them here in comments.

Meanwhile, thanks for visiting and thanks for patience with me for not posting. Writing a researced article ain't easy. I haven't done nothing like it in a long time. I'm probably going to have to stop using "ain't" so much.


2/27, early AM:
Yankee Doodle posted this at some point yesterday:

House of the Rising Sun

The post itself is short but it has alot of links to back it up. I was up a good chunk of the night reading them.

This is scary.

Gun Control is the Coward's Way Out

So I was checking the news this morning. As soon as I began to blog, some of the first things I saw were blogs from the UK. I had no idea things were so bad over there. So, now I try to follow news from the UK a little closer. And, this morning I saw this: Blair announces measures to tackle gun crime

Basically, what happened is a man got shot. There's been alot of that lately. Prime Minister Tony Blair complains about it, like any good liberal, and wants to do something about it, like any good liberal politician.

This is dangerous, because when a liberal wants to do something about a problem in society, you'd better hang on to your guns, your freedom and your money, because they're gonna try to take the first two from you so they can say they're doing something about the problem, and they're gonna take the last one from you to pay for whatever they're doing to take the first two.

The article addresses how there's been other shootings, so Blair and the liberal establishment start talking about "gun crime".

It's almost as if the guns just jump up, run out into the street, and fire themselves. There are these terrible, evil machines that are killing folks. We don't know how these things got there, except that traditional, conservative society must be involved somehow. Let's ban the guns!

This is a smart thing to do, because it makes it look like you're doing something about the problem. And, while the politicians try to make you think firearms have a life of their own, the truth is they don't, so banning them is easy to do. Because guns aren't alive and can't vote, they won't take it out on you at the next election. And, by the time most folks figure out you goofed things up worse, you're probably retired and can blame it on your conservative successor who's trying to fix the problems you helped create.

An added advantage is that gun control laws are aimed at people who obey the laws, and they're not going to hassle you as much. It takes far less courage to deal with a law-abiding citizen who is unarmed than it does to deal with a criminal who is armed.

The article links to another one, Third schoolboy shot dead within a fortnight.

In that article is a premium quote:

Three days later, 15-year-old Michael Dosunmu who was described as "easy going", was shot dead as he slept in his bedroom in Peckham.

His home was just yards from the spot where 10-year-old Damilola Taylor was stabbed to death with a broken bottle in 2000.

Notice the part about the 10-year-old who got stabbed with a broken bottle.

Why don't they outlaw bottles? Why don't they pass a law that says you go to jail if you break a bottle? That way, they could throw you in jail for having a bottle, and, if that fails, they could throw you in jail for breaking the bottle that you have illegally. That's two chances to throw you in jail before someone gets hurt!

Your problem ain't the guns, you dumb-ass liberal. Your problem is the punks using them. They're the ones breaking the law and doing stuff that's illegal and wrong.

Outlawing guns does no good. Criminals get firearms the way they get narcotics: illegally. If they're smuggling in heroin or cocaine, and selling that, there's nothing to it to throw a few guns in the shipment, some for the drug dealers and distributors, others to sell to folks who want to buy a gun with their drugs. You go to a fast food place and get fries and a drink on the side, why not a 9mm with the your drugs? It'll help you rob the money you need for your next fix.

The problem is the punks. The "bobbies" can't be everywhere, so they won't be able to enforce your gun laws, they same way they can't stop the crime you already got.

Why don't you try loosening up the gun laws? Allow certain folks to not only have firearms, but to carry them concealed. You can require these folks to go through special training on firearm use, so they know how to use them safely, as well as learning about the laws in society, so they understand when they can use them to defend themselves or others. Once enough of your decent folks are armed, the problems with the punks will begin to go away.

You need to deal with the problem. The problem isn't guns, it's punks. If you ain't got the guts to deal with the problem, maybe you can get a gut-injection somewhere, but stop trying to come down on decent law-abiding folks as your way of avoiding having to deal with punk criminals.

Turning the Tables

Racism is wrong; sexism is wrong; and so on. I wish we all knew that, but too many people don't. Many folks are raised hating, and never know any better. Other folks know better, but get caught up in what's going on around them, and lose sight of what they once saw.

I've been reading about how some of the radicalized, extremist Islamic schools teach young folks. These schools are Wahhabist, a brand of Islam from Saudi Arabia. Thanks to monetary and other support from Saudi Arabia, they are now not only in Saudi Arabia, but in Pakistan, elsewhere throughout the Islamic world, and now even in the West, including right here in the US. They're teaching young people to hate. They teach people that Christian people are apes and that Jewish people are pigs. They teach young people that it is good to kill other folks just because those people believe differently from them. They teach these young people that it is good to die in the process.

It's not racism; it has nothing to do with how a person looks, or where that person's ancestors are from. Anyone can become a Christian or a Jew, or a Muslim for that matter. But, it is every bit as evil. It is every bit as wrong. God created us all, we are all His children, and He expects us to live like sisters and brothers. Sooner or later, we are all going to be in front of Him, explaining our conduct here on Earth. And there's no excuse for teaching young people who don't know any better to hate folks. It's going to be pretty hard to explain to our Creator.

Mohammed told his followers that paradise was in the shade of swords. No wonder. If you think like all that, if you hate folks, if you teach others to hate, if you teach others to kill and to die while killing, then where you are going, you will have to fight for all eternity, because that is what you preach, that is what you cause, and so, that is what you deserve. Maybe it will be paradise for you to fight and kill and hate forever. Then again, maybe it'll grow old after a while.

I love my country. God bless America! I love my state. God bless the Great State of Texas!

America is far from perfect. We had terrible racism in this country. People from Africa were treated as less than human, they were considered property. They were bought and sold, they were forced to work. They were mistreated, raped, abused, killed. Back in the day, this was legal right here in Texas.

Slavery was finally outlawed here, thank God! But, the aftereffects continued for many decades. Even as late as the 1960's, there were many places where black folks were treated much worse than white folks, just because of the color of their skin. Finally, there was political action so their rights could be exercised.

The situation for women was in many ways similar. For a long time ladies couldn't even vote. It took years of political organizing and struggling to change that.

These are not all the problems we've had, just some of the better-known problems. These problems have not been completely solved. In many ways, they are still with us today.

However, some of the political movements that got started to change these situations and solve these problems became radicalized. They lost sight of the goal of "liberty and justice for all", and came to seek merely to turn the tables. Radicalized feminist and "black power" movements came about, which seek to discriminate against males, or against non-blacks. These movements lost their way, got hijacked, and, instead of the solution, became part of the problem.

This is important to recall as we defend ourselves and our culture against what I can only describe as violent conquest. Tyrrany is coming at us dressed up like freedom of religion. Incitement to terrorism is coming at us dressed up as freedom of speech. We have to be careful that we keep our eyes on our goal of "liberty and justice for all". We can't get caught up in what's going on and lose sight of the goal. If we go too far, and try to turn the tables on our enemies, we may find out that we ourselves become enemies, and destroy the very things we are trying to protect.

Think about these words, please:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

There Ain't Gonna Be No Debate!

And ladies and gentlemen, that's the first point I want to get across to y'all!

You think this is about religion, but it's not. It's about freedom.

Read your history books, do some research. These people are gonna take away your freedom.

Some of you want charter schools, or home schooling, others want more money in the public schools. Guess what! If these radicals take over, your kids are gonna be in those Islamic schools like what they got in Pakistan, and they're gonna be learning how to hate folks. They ain't gonna be debating this with y'all.

Some of you are screaming for universal healthcare, others just want a tax cut. All of y'all need to be one the same side, because if these radical Muslims take over, there ain't gonna be no debate!

I hate abortion. Abortion is murder of an unborn child. But, I try to convince you peacefully, because I want you to learn that you're hurting your child, and yourself. But if these radical jihadis take over, they ain't gonna be telling but once, and if you don't toe the line, they'll abort you! They don't care that you're 20, 30, 40 years old! They'll abort you on the spot, and there ain't gonna be no debate about it!

They're cutting off heads of folks in Saudi Arabia, they're stoning folks in Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan. They're beating their lady-folks, and there's no debate about it over there. They abuse their wives here in the West, and they're trying to change the laws and impose their own, called Sharia.

Sharia is Islamic law, and it says you can beat your wives ALL FOUR OF THEM, stone them for adultery, stone them if they say they've been raped. There's honor killings of people's daughters for having a boyfriend, not having sex, just talking to him. And that's what they are trying to bring over here.

You're worried about the environment, gun control, whatever. Once these folks are in charge, your gonna do what the mullah says, and that's it. Some mullah reads his Islamic texts, and he makes the decision. You don't like it, they whoop ya, or worse, and there ain't gonna be no debate about it.

You're tired of religion? You want to be atheist or agnostic? The wahhabis will kill you, and that's it. It's not about religion; it's about freedom! Freedom to be Christian, Jewish, Hindu, or whatever; freedom to be religious or not! Freedom to be gay or straight or bi; freedom to be pollute or "go green". Freedom to carry a gun, or freedom to work for gun control.

Folks, this ain't rocket science. We all need to agree on this, and we all need to speak out now, because if these folks take over, THERE AIN'T GONNA BE NO MORE DEBATES!

We Do This for Allah (and Our Seventy-Two Virgins)

This was sent to me by a friend in the e-mail. It did not say who wrote it. The text is as I got it. I tried to reconstruct the line breaks as I think it goes. It kind of reminds me of something Dr. Seuss would write. At the end are Biblical passages.

We Do This for Allah (and Our Seventy-Two Virgins)

"I have the words of the Prophet!"
The sheikh began to talk,
Explaining to us the law,
Saying "In this way you must walk!
Be good believers,
And follow these rules,
And in heaven you will have women,
Great riches, fine jewels."
"Tell us of these heavenly women,"
We asked of the sheikh,
"Whose are they? And,
How many may we take?"
"Virgins all," he answered;
"To each seventy-two.
But only for believers!
Not for kuffar, Christian or Jew.
So live your life as a good Muslim,
And do not be discouraged.
Do this now for Allah
(And your seventy-two virgins)."

We did as the sheikh commanded,
And lived as the Prophet spoke.
"But more is required,"
Said the sheikh, and I quote:
"We must spread the word;
To the nonbelievers do go!
Speak the words of the Prophet,
That they, too, may know.
But if they should not believe you,
Do not be discouraged.
We do this for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins)."

We spoke to the nonbelievers,
But the infidels did balk!
They would not hear our words;
In our ways they would not walk.
We told this to the sheikh,
Asking "What now must we do?"
"They will submit to the sword,
Those kuffar, Christians and Jews!
And if some should escape,
Do not be discouraged.
We do this for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins)."

So off we went,
And many infidels did heed.
But the sheikh was not satisfied;
"Of more believers we have need!
Give them then these choices:
Convert, submit, or be killed!
And have ye no fear;
You do Allah's will.
But if the battle goes to them,
Do not be discouraged.
We do this for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins)."

Many infidels submitted,
But others, oh how they fought!
We reported all to the sheikh,
Saying "We did as you taught!"
Enraged he yelled "Go ye now forth,
And the infidels do slay!
But spare ye their women!
With them ye may play....
But if they should smite you,
Do not be discouraged.
We do this for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins)."

"But if to Islam they convert,
Themselves your brothers they do make.
Otherwise, slay them,
And what is theirs you may take!
All the world to Allah must come,
Other religions are hereby banned!
Those are the orders of the Prophet;
That is Allah's command!
Do as you have been told,
And do not be discouraged.
We do this for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins)."

So off to battle we went;
The infidels we attacked!
But the infidels were strong,
Their armies pushed us back.
Many brothers did fall;
The nonbelievers did win.
Angered, the sheikh said:
"This is because you have sinned!
Be ye now more faithful,
And do not be discouraged.
We do this for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins)."

Again we attacked them,
But our attack completely failed.
Our brothers were struck down;
The infidels prevailed.
To Allah they sent us
As happy as we could be.
Although we lost the battle,
Surely Allah will see
We did as Allah commanded;
We did not get discouraged.
We did this all for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins).

Martyred holy warriors,
In heaven we proudly stood.
We lived as good Muslims;
We spread the word as we could.
In holy battle we died;
Great was our reward!
We looked for our virgins
As we were promised before.
We never turned back,
Nor were we discouraged.
We did this all for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins).

But the virgins were not there
To us it was explained.
Instead we were shown more infidels;
We were told to not complain!
"The infidels martyred your brothers!
Go now and settle the score.
Do not worry about the virgins;
I shall bring more.
It matters not how the battle goes,
So do not be discouraged.
Do this now for Allah
(And your seventy-two virgins)."

So off again we went
Against the infidels to battle,
And there we saw something,
And our wits it did rattle!
There was our holy Prophet
Saying "It was all a great lie!
It was not the angel Gabriel!
I hearkened to the wrong guy!
He promised us women,
And taught us to hate!
I was deceived by his words;
Now it is too late.
There are no virgins here;
Only eternal war.
All that is before us,
Is to fight, and fight some more!"
"What did you expect?"
He was answered with a grin,
"That you rape virgins in Heaven,
And kill and plunder to get in?
Deception is all relative;
And now you are all mine!
So fight and fight some more!
This is how you will pass your time,
Here with me in eternity,
Being tormented in this flame,
Because hate is my motivation,
And torment is my game!"

At this point we cried mightily,
And became greatly discouraged.
We had done this all for Allah
(And our seventy-two virgins).
But we had been mocked and deceived;
Satan had played us for fools.
We learned to hate others
And here where we were, hatred is what rules.
We began to wonder,
"Can our Creator be this cruel?"
Even more loudly did we cry:
"God save us! We are fools!"

With these words things changed;
A great light we did see.
One like the Son of God appeared,
Saying "Listen carefully to Me.
I gave you commands,
But these have not been kept.
When innocents suffered,
You should have wept.
Instead you hated,
And to the depths you did fall.
But our Father is merciful and kind;
He truly loves you all.
So another chance you will have,
But you must do as you're now told.
Love one another;
For love is worth more than gold.
Much evil you have done,
And much misery you have made.
Don't worry about that;
Its price I long ago paid."

"Lies!" from behind us
Cried an angry voice.
And then the thought struck us:
We actually had a choice!
It got deathly quiet
As we all looked around;
And, slowly, one by one,
We dropped our swords to the ground.
Our holy Prophet stepped forward,
Saying to Satan "It is through.
A terrible mistake I made,
But I knew not it was you.
Now I see more clearly;
Now I understand the choice:
Those who preach hatred
Do not speak with God's voice."

Satan's anger burned,
As the Prophet spoke to us:
"Fight the infidels no more;
Love them you must."
And to Jesus he turned;
The Prophet's words I can't forget:
"My men wish to leave this place,
If you will permit.
A further request I have,
Take from this place the others.
An important lesson we have learned:
The infidels are our brothers."
Then to Satan the Prophet spoke:
"A lesson for you: set aside your hate!
Learn how to love.
It is never too late."

2 Samuel 14:14 (NKJV) "For we will surely die and become like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away a life; but He devises means, so that His banished ones are not expelled from Him."

John 6:37 (NKJV) "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out."

Howdy from West Texas!

I'm American by birth, and Texan by the Grace of God!

God, guns and guts made America great; but the guns mean nothing if God's not showing you the way, and if you ain't got the guts to walk in the path He's showing you.

A friend of mine sent me a poem that at first I thought was kind of dorky, but then I got to liking it. Whoever wrote it is pretty smart. I'll be posting it next up.

That poem got me to looking around and thinking some. I been reading up alot about Islam, especially here in the blogosphere. It's been confirming what I've been thinking. I'll be sharing my thoughts with you as I post on this blog and as I visit yours.

A couple of thoughts I'll share with you right now:

You jihadis ain't the first to come against us, and you won't be the last. I'll say a prayer over your graves as we send you to Allah, but believe you me the United States of America will piss on the grave of radical Islam.

You gun-control nuts can have my guns when you and your jihadi buddies pry them from my cold, dead fingers -- and good luck trying!

God bless America, God bless freedom-loving people all over the world, and God bless the Great State of Texas, the best State in the best Country on God's earth!
