    However, the problem arises when some holier than thou types come on and get all in an uproar when someone with a different opinion makes a comment. If you go back and read through my posts, I'm pretty sure that you will not find my mentioning my own religious affiliation. So my "rantings" are just my way of standing up to those that have the "I'm better than you, because I have .... religion" attitude. Feel free to keep your religious retoric to yourself, and there wont be a retailiation. Or, be prepared to defend your beliefs, since I will question them.

    Oh yeah, thanks for reffering to me as a troll... I guess thats the upstanding christian way of dealing with people with a different opinion than you, and who is not afraid to make a comment stating such. But, from what I have seen by the examples set forth by you, and the "better than you" christians, is to throw insults at those who don't agree with you.

    As for the "ignore" list. I have noone on my ignore list, because I am not afraid to have a discussion with anyone. Especially if it involves defending, or explaining my beliefs. So go ahead and ignore me, show how much you do fear the unknown, and those that question your percieved authority.
    No one is afraid of your views or to debate you. They simply find it tiresome to deal with your tirades. If you wish to believe as you do, NO ONE is going to stop you. You made your point a long time ago and since then you have added nothing at all. I think we get it, you don't believe in the Bible or in Jesus. Sorry, but I forgot to put you on my ignore list as well. Enjoy your life my friend, we are not your enemy.

    At a time when our president and other politicians tend to apologize for our country's prior actions, here's a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our country.


    JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when de Gaulle decided to pull out of NATO. de Gaulle said he wanted all U.S. military out of France as soon as possible.

    Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"

    de Gualle did not respond.

    When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of 'empire building' by George Bush, He answered by saying, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."

    There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?"

    A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: "Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?"

    A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S.., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"

    Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."

    AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...

    Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

    "You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

    "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

    The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

    "Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !"

    The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to."
