9/11 THE DAY THAT THE NEW YORK TWIN TOWERS OF THE WORLD TRADE WERE ATTACKED,WAS AND REMAINS A DAY THAT AMERICANS WILL NEVER FORGET,IT WAS AN ATTACK NOT ONLY ON THE TOWERS BUT AN ATTACK ON THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE,THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS LOST THEIR LIVES IN THIS ATTACK.
AFTER THAT ATTACK,AMERICAN FLAGS BEGAN TO POP UP OUTSIDE ALMOST EVERY HOME IN AMERICA,BUT HAVE YOU NOTICED RECENTLY?MOST OF THOSE FLAGS ARE NOW MISSING! OH YOU CAN STILL SEE THE FLAG ON SOME HOUSES,PROUDLY WAVING IN THE BREEZE,BUT I THINK THESE ARE MOSTLY HOMES OF U.S.VETERANS,AND FOR THE MOST PART,THE FLAGS ARE NOW MISSING ALL OVER AMERICA.
I RESPECT EVERY ONES RIGHT TO WORSHIP AS THEY PLEASE BUT TO EVEN CONSIDER THAT SHARIA LAW COMES BEFORE ANY OTHER LAW IN AMERICA IS WRONG!.
I ALSO READ AN ARTICLE ON YAHOO NEWS THAT INFORMED THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT MR.OBAMA HAS REMOVED THE AMERICAN FLAG FROM THE OVEL OFFICE AND REPLACED IT WITH A YELLOW CURTAIN BEARING ARABIC SYMBOLS,THAT HE HAS REMOVED A LOT OF FURNITURE AND REPLACED IT WITH MIDDLE EASTERN FURNITURE,WHILE THIS IS VAGUELY DISTURBING TO ME,THE MOST DISTURBING THING IN MY MIND IS THAT AMERICANS ARE SO FICKLE AND FORGETFUL, THAT AMERICANS WHO WERE SO PATRIOTC A FEW YEARS A GO ARE NOW SEEMINGLY LETTING GO OF THE TWIN TOWER DISASTER,DOES IT TAKE AN ACT OF WAR TO GET PEOPLE FLY THE AMERICAN FLAG? I AM NOT SAYING THAT THE 2 WARS WE FOUGHT OVER 9/11 ARE RIGHT OR WRONG,I AM MERELY WONDERING WHAT IT TAKES FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO HONOR OUR FLAG BY DISPLAYING IT IN A PROMINENT PLACE?
IN ANOTHER ARTICLE ON THE SAME PAGE (YAHOO NEWS) I READ THAT A PENN.JUDGE (CONVERTED TO ISLAM IN IRAQ)HAD THROWN OUT AN ASSAULT CASE OF A MAN DRESSED AS A ZOMBIE MOHAMAD ASSAULTED BY A MUSLIM DURING A DEMONSTRATION IN THAT STATE,THE ARTICLE ALSO NOTED THAT ANOTHER MAN, DRESSED AS A ZOMBIE CATHOLIC POPE WAS "NOT" ASSAULTED!
YOU DEAR READER, ARE FREE TO CHOOSE HOW YOU TAKE THIS ARTICLE I HAVE POSTED HERE,IF YOU READ IT AT ALL,I WILL PROBABLY GET A LOT OF FLAK OVER POSTING IT ANYWAY,BUT ALL I AM ASKING IS FOR YOU TO GO OUT AND LOOK FOR YOURSELVES,LOOK AT THE ALMOST NONE EXISTANT AMERICAN FLAGS THAT ARE NOT BEING DISPLAYED ANY LONGER.
