    Has anyone noticed on US currency it is, "In God We Trust." Our trust in government failed about the same time as, "We the people" were ignored!

    Of course, it's the 69th anniversary.

    Anyone recognize this guy?

    I think the Islamic terrorist have gotten most of what they wanted. They have us ceding our Liberties in the name of some false security. They are the reason for the TSA, Patriot Act and other unConstitutional acts. All the while we buy Saudi Oil to the tune of billions a year and they get to support the spread Wahabism.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    This being D-day I thought that perhaps the HISTORY!!! channel might have some good stuff. They ran "Pawn Stars" all day long. Just insulting.

    The Military Channel has been airing, "The Color Of War" all evening. Great series if you haven't seen it. And., "Saving Private Ryan" has been on HBO all week. Even the classic movie channel has been airing Normandy Invasion movies from the 40's and 50's.

    Sen Lindsey Graham (R) stated today that he thinks this is a good thing and will help them curtail terror. Well, they might catch a few. But, like everything else the Government has done, it won't be long before the abuse starts. Example; The IRS. 100 years ago they told us the Top Rate would be 3% and others, less. It's a gradual theft of our Liberties and Freedoms! Now, they want to takeover Healthcare. As far as I'm concerned, the Government has been abusive of our military! Both the Repubs and Dems have abdicated themselves of "Monetary Policy" and turned it over to foreign and domestic bankers. Now, the Repubs want to act like they have the "financial" highground. Yet, most of those hypocrits voted 7 times to raise the Debt Ceiling under Bush.
