11 September 2001 updated 9/19/01

Surely 11 September 2001 will live in national memory for a very long time. If you don't know what happened, I can't imagine what cave you've been sequestered in. Evil men hijacked 4 planes and crashed 2 into the World Trade Center, destroying it, one in to the Pentagon, badly damaging one of the 5 sides. And a fourth crashed in Pennsylvania thanks to the brave passengers who prevented the terrorists from completing their mission. The terrorist killed thousands and we a still answering the questions who are they, why did they do these unspeakable horrible things? We morn for those who have been killed and their families and friends who have lost loved ones. How ever I know they have gone on to a far better world and God will take care of them.

President Bush has started mission "Infinite Justice", I fully support his efforts to bring those responsible to justice. President Bush has declared war on terrorism which is a big mission and will take years. We need to be patient while all this progresses. We need to encourage him to wipe out any terrorist groups, their supporters and make it known to all nations we will not tolerate any nation that sponsors or harbors terrorists. There are already pansies calling for peace, and even some saying it is our fault the attacks on us took place. They are full of crap. We need to speak out against these idiots.

As for us, we need to go about our lives as best we can, just as we did before 11 September. If we change our life styles, our country because of this terrorist attack then they have won! Go out and travel just as you would of before, take your vacations, etc. Live your life to it's fullest! Seize the Day! Thank God for every day that you have and enjoy his blessings.

One thing that concerns me is the restriction of passengers on airlines of carrying anything that could be used as a weapon. This is not what we need to do, if anything we need to arm everyone so the next time some terrorist stands up and says they are taking over the plane everyone who can attack them and kill them right there. We need to close off the cockpits of airliners so the pilots can not be attacked. We also need to keep a much closer eye on our boarders and immigration to keep those who are anti-American out of this country.

No internet taxes, save a Baby. updated 8/12/01

I haven't had time to compose any particular thoughts. Right now Congress is in recess, thank goodness! I believe it was Samuel Clement who said no man's liberty or property was safe while the legislature was in session, he sure had hit that nail on the head. I have a couple of items for you to take activist roles in. The first one will open a new window that will allow you to e-mail the congress men who can keep the current moratorium on taxation of the internet.

The second is one I'm sure many of you feel strongly about, the issue which both sides feel strongly about, abortion. Those on the side for claim it is about choice. I submit that the choice was made when it was decided to engage in an action which pregnancy can result. To do so outside of marriage is wrong, and producing a child which isn't wanted is even more wrong. Using abortion to change the consequences of such actions only compounds a sin and is plainly wrong, a mortal sin I'm quite sure. I'm not saying abortion is wrong in all cases, but most cases it is. The only times it is acceptable is when medical care determines that the mother's life is in danger and there is no alternative, the baby is deformed or not viable, or the result of rape or incest, even then alternatives should be prayerfully sought. The vast majority of the million or so abortions in this country each year is for the purpose of birth control. Birth control should take place before taking the chance of contraception. For those not married (to each other) it should start with abstinence which is the only 100% proven effective method of preventing unwanted pregnancy's.

Third "McCain-Feingold/Shays-Meehan" Campaign Finance Reform bill is still a threat to your freedom of speech and does little to reform campaign finance corruption in elections. What we need is to elect honest men not dangerous bills like this. If you care about liberty please sign this petition as well.

Dear Friends,

The Internet tax moratorium, prohibiting discriminatory taxation of the Internet, is set to expire this October. Already, self-serving politicians from 7,600 different taxing authorities are salivating at the thought of being able to take another chunk out of your wallet.

NoInternetTax.org would like to invite you to join the battle against burdensome taxation and regulation of the Internet.

NoInternetTax.org is leading the fight in Congress to permanently extend the moratorium, and protect the Internet from these money-grabbers. For more information, please visit our web site at www.NoInternetTax.org

In an effort to further educate the public about this issue, we are requesting that like-minded web sites, and NoInternetTax.org supporters place a link from their web site back to our main page. We have enclosed a banner for your review, or you may take one off of our web site. Thank you for your time and your support of common sense tax policy.

Sincerely,

Josh Dazey
Deputy Communications Director
NoInternetTax.org

Take a stand against Internet Taxation at NoInternetTax.org No Internet Tax!

Grassfire.net invites you to join the 143,678 who have already signed the Petition For Life!

8/9/01

Dear Pro-life citizen,

Would you take five minutes to take a stand for one unborn baby?

Then, please help rally 1.1 million people to sign Grassfire.net's "Petition For Life" - one person for each of the 1.1 million unborn babies who will be aborted this year.

Mr. Scott has just signed the Petition For Life and now is inviting you to join.



We believe the time has come for real pro-life victories. We have identified seven key pro-life initiatives that we are targeting this Congress.

--PRESSING FOR A BAN ON PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION

--REStrICTING THE DANGEROUS RU-486 ABORTION DRUG

--STOPPING FEDERAL FUNDING OF RESEARCH THAT DEStrOYS HUMAN EMBRYOS

--PROTECTING BABIES WHO SURVIVE ABORTIONS

--PROTECTING UNBORN VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE

--PROHIBITING THE TAKING OF MINORS ACROSS STATE LINES TO HAVE AN ABORTION

--BANNING THE CREATION OF HUMAN EMBRYOS BY CLONING

We can win each of these fights THIS CONGRESS, but it will take a massive grassroots effort to make it happen. That's why we are asking you to sign this nationwide "Petition for Life."

Will you help? Once you sign, you will receive a custom "E-Link" that will help you multiply your impact, along with access to an online reporting web site customized for you!

Thank you for standing for the unborn!

"Real impact. Real feedback. Real results."

Dear friend,

This e-mail could be illegal, unless you take action now...

On Monday April 2, the Senate passed a bill that will stifle your free speech rights and cripple pro-family groups that defend your values before our elected leaders.

And it will totally silence our voice during elections!

It's called the "McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform" bill. But don't believe the nice-sounding name, it is really nothing more than a "Gag-Order"). This bill represents an ominous threat to our freedoms.

The battle now moves to the House of Representatives where the bill is known as the "Shays-Meehan Campaign Finance Reform" bill.

I need you to sign this petition RIGHT NOW to block this measure because the House vote is imminent!

Click here to sign:

This bill restricts your free association rights by shutting grassroots organizations like the CENTER FOR RECLAIMING AMERICA out of the policy debate!

THIS E-MAIL COULD BE CALLED "COORDINATED ACTIVITY" THAT MAY WELL RESULT IN FULL INVESTIGATION BY THE FEC OR OTHER FEDERAL AGENCY!

This bill is a "Trojan Horse" that could destroy our free speech rights and cripple the pro-family grassroots movement.

I have already signed this petition. Now, I need your help. Click here to find out more:

It takes just five minutes. We'll gather your petition and rush them to the House. Then, help me start a grassfire that will let our Representatives know that we won't sit by silently while they strip us of our free speech rights!

We must move quickly!

Thank you so much for taking a stand with us!

P.S. "McCain-Feingold/Shays-Meehan" is really a government issued "GAG-ORDER!" And the so-called "finance reforms" are "FREE-SPEECH REStrICTIONS"! We must move quickly. Please sign the petition today. Then, alert all your friends.
