LONDON – “Surface-to-air missiles could be stationed on the rooftops of an apartment block in east London as part of Britain’s air defenses for the Olympics, the country’s military confirmed Sunday.”
How EXCITING! What FUN! Quick, where can I buy tickets? Can I get a seat close to the missiles?
Are they serious? Exactly what threat from aircraft, coming from where, are they expecting, and why would anyone in their right mind be within 50 miles of the Olympics if an attack is expected? Good Grief!
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN AMERICA
The Veteran of Foreign Wars post in Barstow and the Veterans Home of California-Barstow can restore a memorial cross in the Mojave Desert under a court settlement that ends a ten year legal battle, the National Park Service said Tuesday. Atheist protestors, most likely Communists and ACLU types, had fought against the cross being there on public land for years.
This finally worked out that the Park Service is giving that acre of land to the patriotic organizations in trade for 5 acres elsewhere. The Park Service will also fence the area for the cross and put up signs that this is Private Property.
This is the way a group of patriotic Americans choose to honor our war dead. The symbol is religious, yes, but the patriotism that inspires this memorial is greater than the symbol. I’m glad this worked out in a way that shuts down the anti-American element, which is what the “atheists” really is, and allows these people to be left alone at last.
If religious symbols are not to be allowed on public or Federal lands, will someone please tell me what the Hell all those crosses and Stars of David are doing at Arlington Cemetery? I guess what the atheist idiots need is a symbol of their own, and I have one for them: A zero with a / across it.
