WWW As My World Turns

Saturday, November 18, 2006


I am in a really grumpy mood this morning and I know why, but it's not anything that I care to divulge to the world at large. A dear friend of mine sent the following my way and it fits my mood just fine. I agree with it 100%.

I'm off to start getting ready for tonight's Gala. I have to get nails put on, feet done, car cleaned out and washed and b/c of the tension I'm feeling I just might splurge on a massage. It would be the first massage I've had in years. I do promise pictures of this Cinderella before she turns back into a pumpkin.

The lady who wrote this letter is Pam Foster of Pamela Foster and Associates in Atlanta . She's been in business since 1980 doing interior design and home planning. She recently wrote a letter to a family member serving in Iraq ....... Read it!

Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001?

Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don't. I don't care at all.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.

I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.

When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest assured that I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank that I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and ---- you guessed it - - - I don't care ! ! ! ! !

The more this gets passed on, sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

If you don't agree with this then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country.

Good for you, Nic!

I agree with you 100%.

Here in Britain, all too often, a lot of things are banned for fear of 'offending muslims', but no thought is given as to whether it offends Christians.

A check-in girl was ordered to remove the cross that she wears in case she offends anybody, but check in staff who wear turbans, faquas or who are fully veiled can do so.
