My Country Tis of Thee . . . .

Whose heart doesn’t stir with pride as the Star Spangled Banner is played
or as the Thunderbirds do a dramatic fly-over for a patriotic event?

What parent’s eyes don’t well up when gazing upon their newly born,
miraculous gift of life?

When, since 9/11, don’t most Americans hearts melt with gratitude over the
young men sacrificing their all, to thwart the Islamic threat to our way
of life?

Which of us shouldn’t be weeping over the largest assemblage of human debris,
ever to disgrace our nation’s Capitol?

Close to a half million people – mostly “women” joined a death march on April 25, 2004
to celebrate the signing, by Colorado, of our nation’s first abortion law April 25, 1967. Oh, they claimed they needed to “Abort Bush” because of his “pro-life” policies. But what they really did was embarrass our nation in the world press.

While our nation daily mourns tragic deaths and sacrifices - for the noble cause of
defending us - from those who seek to destroy our way of life; these selfish minions heaped scorn upon us in the international community.

To the young father who proudly marched, wearing his one month old son in a
Snuglie - sporting a “choice” sticker, “You should be ashamed of yourself! Your baby
is a gift from God and you are marching with those despicable baby killers, who want to rip the arms and legs off of helpless pre-born infants?”

To the pink clad women wearing “Peace” on your backs, in English and Arabic,“Wake up! We are in a global war against Islamo-fascists who want you in a burqua - and you are screaming in the streets for more dead babies? What about the rights of pre-born women? Could you be anymore deluded or selfish?”

To the grey haired Grammas screeching for Choice, “Let those grandbabies live!!!
They are fun, they are adorable, they are a blessing!”

To the African American women who don’t realize that every day 1,400 black babies
are killed by the racist Planned Parenthood, “Get a clue – Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, believed that minorities were human weeds. Do some research and wake up.”

To the Jewish marchers, “Yes abortion is America’s holocaust! Never forget.”

To Ashley Judd, Hillary and Whoopi, “It’s really not all about you. Try reading
the bio of Florence Nightingale to learn about sacrificing, that another might
live. Dust off those old fashioned notions like dignity, nobility, charity and
chastity. They really are far more appealing than that tired, shallow and robotic
chant ‘my body, my choice’”

And finally, to the young mom on the flight home from the madness, “The pro-choice
stickers on your 4 year old twin girls are depraved and sick. What message are you
sending into those precious lives? Do you really want your daughters to grow up realizing that they were expendable? Snap out of it and stop exploiting your
children for your pathetic political cause!”

Sweet land of liberty?

“We hold these Truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Our nation is in grave danger of forgetting what really matters. Do we really believe
that our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor in order that
we might destroy our posterity?

While heroes like the NFL’s Pat Tillman quietly surrender their millions to go fight and die to save us; these poor pathetic souls gleefully shamed America, with their pleas for more death and destruction on our own soil.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him,
but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they
claimed to be wise, they became fools . . . .” Romans 1:21-22.
