EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC, THIS IS EYE OPENING.............
The Catholic Church is the oldest Christian religion in the world.
When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no hospitals. Today, one out of five people in this country receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital.


When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no schools. Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3 million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools.

Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the world.

The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the tax payers would have to make up the loss.

Also, all Catholic adoption services would come to an end. A human disaster.

There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country. It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president. I am asking all of you to go to the polls and be united in replacing our present president with a president that will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions besides Islam.

Mr President, you said, "The USA is not a Christian Nation".

You are wrong we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to Worship & Practice Freely.


Oh, by the way:
MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America :
Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital ?
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you seen Muslims, shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scouts?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?
Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life ????

It's time to PRAY!

Just so you’ll be clear, it’s ALWAYS time to pray!  But, as your Pastor, I just sense in my heart, from the Lord, that I need to call all McGregorites and friends to PRAY for our nation.  Consider the following:
  • We face a crucial election.  Cliché but true, perhaps the most philosophically, fundamentally, “two different visions” election in my lifetime. 
  • Christians must put on our spiritual armor and be warriors for Christ.  We fight best and strongest on our knees!
  • The only hope for our nation and world is Jesus!  Let’s stop being dependent upon pundits and start praying to the God of the universe!
  • We are crashing because of carnality, sinking because of secularism, drowning in national debt, hiding behind our humanistic philosophy, and Glee-fully (pun intended!) mocking our God!  Our nation is just plain sick!  Our nation is obviously on the wrong path, and no politician of any party can offer the answers we need most – we need revival!  We MUST pray.
  • God promises in His Word that if we “pray and seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways,” THEN we will hear from heaven and Him!
That’s what we need!  Folks, we need Him!  Neither Republicans nor Democrats will destroy us; our own sin will do that, but neither can either party save us.  Only God can do that.  Join me as we turn to Him in prayer.  I am very often asked by folks to speak to politics from the pulpit.  Honestly, I don’t have enough time to speak to such temporary issues.  But I DO need to lead us to PRAY!  And I will.

I’m asking you – all of you, to join me in two things:

First, for us to PRAY!  Make a commitment with me to spend time in prayer each day, praying specifically for our nation.  For our nation to turn to God like never before.

Second, for us to FAST.  The Scriptures encourage us to fast and pray.  Fast, as you can, for God to sovereignly rule over our people and our nation and our world.  To fast is to sacrifice something valuable (food!) in order to obtain something of greater value – God’s blessings and presence!  Pray and fast for our nation, for this election, for our people.  We need that now more than ever!

Be God’s people – let’s go to Him – He’s our only hope.  He IS our Hope!!

Florida Senator Bill Nelson is not the “moderate” he claims to be, but rather one of Barack Obama and Harry Reid's liberal allies in the Senate.
Free-spending Bill Nelson and Harry Reid have found time to pass a failed $833 billion "stimulus" plan and trillions more in ObamaCare, but haven't even passed a budget in over three years.
Which is why we've given the aloof Bill Nelson a new nickname, "Senator Space Cadet":

If we want to reform spending, cut the deficit, and reduce our national debt, Florida cannot afford to send liberal Bill Nelson back to Harry Reid’s Senate. Click here to stop Nelson.

Direct Quote from "Larry, the Cable Guy"
"Even after the Super Bowl victory of the New Orleans Saints,
I have noticed a large number of people implying, with bad jokes,
that Cajuns aren't smart. I would like to state for the record that I
disagree with that assessment. Anybody that would build a city
5 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone and fill it with
Democrats who can't swim is a genius."
THIS CABLE GUY HUMOR IS FUNNY BUT UNFORTUNATELY ITS TRUE! THE MANS A GENIUS!!!

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in Our Country lately: Illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida . .. .. . Not me -- I concentrate on solutions for the problems -- it's a win-win situation.
* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees.
* Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?
Think about this:
1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

THE CONSTITUTION
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ....
why don't we just give them ours?
It was written by a lot of really smart guys,
it has worked for over 200 years,
and we're not using it anymore.

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this --
you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal'
'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and
'Thou Shall Not Lie'
in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians,
it creates a hostile work environment.

Also, think about this .....
If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone --
YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

GET ER DONE!

Never buy a Pit-bull from a one armed man!

Once again, President Barack Hussein Obama is speaking out of both sides of his mouth in a meaningless gesture before the United Nations …
President Obama called on nations Tuesday to end the modern slavery of human trafficking …
It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime,” the president said. “I do not use that word — slavery — lightly. It evokes obviously one of the most painful chapters in our nation’s history. But around the world, there’s no denying the awful reality. When a little boy is kidnapped, turned into a child soldier, forced to kill or be killed, that’s slavery.”
Just last week, Mr. Obama gave seven countries listed by the State Department for poor records on controlling human trafficking — including Libya and Saudi Arabia — a pass on government-mandated sanctions and a loss of foreign aid, citing national security concerns.
The president said it was in the “national interest” not to punish the seven countries ranked by the State Department as among the worst when it comes to combating human trafficking and to give partial waivers to six other countries. Obama garbles U.S. history in human trafficking speech - Washington Times
>Bottom line …
An empty suit, reading on a TelePrompTer a speech written by others, using lofty rhetoric and saying nothing. The quintessential “don’t do as I do, do as I say” limousine liberal who is insulated by power, position, and wealth from the consequences of his actions.
Can’t upset those Muslim nations that perpetuate human rights violations and deal in slavery. Can’t anger our “friend” Saudi Arabia whose funding is said to be behind much of the global terrorism – including the attack on the Twin towers.
Fire Obama now before he drags America over the abyss.

It used to be a standing joke among economists and Wall Street Traders that if you understood what then Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan was saying, you were likely wrong. Greenspan was known for long, complicated recitations that said absolutely nothing – while sounding meaningful. Unlike Greenspan, current Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is relatively understandable – but still says nothing of substance.
So what is the game?
Is it to whipsaw the markets for the benefit of the financial industry; namely the commission brokers who buy and sell stocks, bonds and commodities for others? Generating good news one day and bad news the next to generate buy/sell orders? Or is it that the Federal Reserve really does not have a clue to the future of the economy and the marketplace and must hedge their bets – lowering expectations by sending Federal Reserve governors and others out with a variety of viewpoints. Some supportive and comforting, some not so comforting. For over a decade, I used to analyze Federal Reserve statements for the financial industry and using my FedWatcher system to compute the Federal Funds rate that was necessary to achieve a neutral inflationary stance in both the five-year and ten-year outlooks. I delighted in capturing the Chairman’s words or the official statements and tracking the so-called weasel-words that were tantamount to announcing “don’t blame us if it doesn’t work out.”
Now we find Philadelphia’s Federal Reserve President, Charles Plosser explaining …
I wish we had better numbers to report.The sizable shocks that hit the economy resulted in a loss of 8.8 million jobs from the peak of employment in January 2008 to the employment trough in February 2010. We have regained fewer than half of these jobs. In my view, unfortunately the frictions and structural adjustments that are holding back improvements in labor markets cannot be cured by monetary policy, nor can monetary policy do much to speed up the slow progress we are making on the labor front.
Turning to inflation, it has been running near our longer-term goal of 2 percent. Although the drought in the Midwest and higher gasoline prices are likely to push up inflation in the near term, these effects should be transitory. Thus, I do not see much evidence that we will have an outbreak of inflation in the near term, nor do I see elevated risks of deflation. Indeed, over the medium to longer term,I expect inflation to be near our 2 percent target. But this expectation is incumbent on appropriate monetary policy, and my assessment is that the appropriate policy is likely to be tighter going forward than anticipated by the Committee at this point. Thus, I do see some risks to inflation in the longer run given the current stance of monetary policy, as I will discuss in a few moments.
Of course, other risks cloud the forecast. While the recent policy actions in Europe may have calmed markets and eased financial conditions somewhat, many fundamental issues remain unresolved. Thus, there is still a great deal of uncertainty as to whether the Europeans will make the difficult choices needed to put Europe back on a sustainable fiscal path.
Our own fiscal policy is also uncertain.While I believe we will avoid the worst-case scenarios related to falling off the fiscal cliff, the U.S. needs to forge a path toward sustainable fiscal policy. These uncertainties constitute significant hurdles for the economy and are retarding near-term growth.
Plosser has often been regarded by the financial community as a contrarian, although many would simply accept the fact that his is speaking his mind, honestly and openly …
At its latest meeting in September, the FOMC decided to begin a third round of quantitative easing, commonly known as QE3, with the purchase of additional agency mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $40 billion per month. The FOMC statement indicated that if the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially, the Fed would make these purchases and more and would employ other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved within a context of price stability. I interpret “within a context of price stability” to mean so long as the inflation outlook remains near the Committee’s goal of 2 percent. The FOMC statement also said that the Committee expects a highly accommodative stance of monetary policy to remain appropriate for a considerable period after the economic recovery strengthens. It also stated that the Committee currently anticipates that exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate are likely to be warranted at least through mid-2015.
The Committee’s decision was based on the view that with unemployment far above the level typically seen in normal times and inflation near its goal, increasing the amount of monetary accommodation should help bring unemployment down without jeopardizing our inflation goal. And since the Fed said it expects to keep substantial accommodation in place even after the recovery strengthens, people and businesses should be reassured that the recovery will remain intact, even in the face of future adverse shocksThis should make households and firms comfortable spending more today rather than saving, which should, in turn, spur hiring.
I opposed the Committee’s actions in September because I believe that increasing monetary policy accommodation is neither appropriate nor likely to be effective in the current environment. Every monetary policy action has costs and benefits, and my assessment is that the potential costs and risks associated with these actions outweigh the potential meager benefits.
Given the magnitude and nature of the shocks that hit our economy, one should not be particularly surprised by the slow recovery. Both the housing and the financial sectors suffered large declines, and it will take time for the economy to adjust. While unemployment is expected to remain above FOMC participants’ range of estimates of its longer-run level for some time, it is not at all clear that monetary policy can speed up that transition. In other words, the slow pace of the recovery should not be taken as evidence that the stance of monetary policy is inappropriate or that ever more aggressive accommodation can speed up that pace.
Indeed, many economists expect thatfurther asset purchases by the Fed are unlikely to reduce long-term interest rates by a significant amountsome studies suggest that the effect will be quite small and transitory. Given our current economic situation and my reading of the empirical evidence, I do not believe that lowering interest rates by a few more basis points will spur further growth or higher employment.Business leaders who have talked to me continue to cite uncertainty about fiscal decisions — here and abroad — as the greatest hindrance to hiring and investment. Hopefully these uncertainties will abate over time, but the central bank can do little to alleviate them.
And as far as households are concerned, they continue to try to repair their balance sheets in the wake of substantial losses of housing wealth, as I indicated earlier. They are deleveraging and saving more. It seems unlikely that a small drop in interest rates will overturn the strong desire to save and, instead, induce households to spend more. In fact, driving down interest rates even further may encourage consumers to save even more to make up for lower returns.
Thus, in my view, we are unlikely to see much benefit to growth or to employment from further asset purchases. If I am right, then conveying the idea that such action will have a substantive impact on labor markets and the speed of the recovery risks the Fed’s credibility. This is quite costly: If the public loses confidence in the central bank, our ability to set effective monetary policy in the future will be harmed and households and businesses will feel the consequences.
The recent actions risk the Fed’s credibility in other ways as well. The rationale for the actions leading to increased spending today depends on the Fed’s ability to convince the public that it will conduct policy in a fundamentally different way than it has in the past. People must believe that we will delay raising interest rates compared to when we normally would and, by so doing, make the economy stronger than it otherwise would be. At the same time, people must believe that we will ensure that inflation expectations do not take off and threaten longer-run price stability. Making such a change in the policy regime believable will be very hard to do.If the public doesn’t believe that we will delay raising rates, they won’t bring spending forward and the policy will be ineffective. But if they do believe we will delay raising rates, they may infer that the Fed is willing to tolerate considerably higher inflation. This may spur an increase in inflation expectations, which would require a response from the FOMC, or else risk the credibility of its commitment to keep inflation low and stable. I do not think it prudent to risk that hard-won credibility. The subtlety and complexity of successfully managing expectations in this manner make this quite a risky policy strategy in my view, with little evidence of quantitatively meaningful results for employment.
Continued expansion of the Fed’s balance sheet has other costs as well. By greatly expanding the size of the Fed’s balance sheet, the new asset-purchase program will exacerbate the challenges that the Fed will face when it comes time to exit this period of extraordinary accommodation, risking higher inflation and harm to the Fed’s reputation and credibility. I have been a student of monetary theory and policy for over 30 years. One constant is that central banks tend to find it easier to lower interest rates than to raise them. Moreover, identifying turning points is difficult even in the best of times, so timing the change in the direction of policy is always a challenge. But this time, exit will be even more complicated and risky. With such a large balance sheet, our transition from very accommodative policies to less accommodative policies will involve using tools we have not used before, such as the interest rate on reserves, term deposits, and asset sales. Once the recovery takes off, long rates will begin to rise and banks will begin lending the large volume of excess reserves sitting in their accounts at the Fed. This loan growth can be quite rapid, as was true after the banking crisis in the 1930s, andthere is some risk that the Fed will need to withdraw accommodation very aggressively in order to contain inflation. At this point, it is impossible to know whether such asset sales will be disruptive to the market. A rapid tightening of monetary policy may also entail political risks for the Fed. We would likely be selling the longer maturity assets in our portfolio at a loss, meaning that we may be unable to make any remittances to the U.S. Treasury for some years. Yet, if we don’t tighten quickly enough, we could find ourselves far behind the curve in restraining inflation.
While these risks are very hard to quantify, it is clear that the larger the Fed’s portfolio becomes, the higher the risk and the potential costs when it comes time to exit. And based on my economic outlook, that time may come well before mid-2015. In my view, to keep the funds rate at zero that long would risk destabilizing inflation expectations and lead to an unwanted increase in inflation. In fact, some are interpreting the FOMC’s statement that we will keep accommodation in place for a considerable time after the recovery strengthens as an indication that the Fed is focused on trying to lower the unemployment rate and is willing to tolerate higher inflation to do so. This is another risk to the hard-won credibility the institution has built up over many years, which, if lost, will undermine economic stability.
Some of my colleagues on the FOMC have advocated giving quantitative triggers or thresholds for the level of unemployment and inflation to explain the economic conditions that would lead the Fed to consider a change in policy stance. For example, the Fed might indicate that extraordinary accommodation would remain in place if unemployment were above, say, X percent, so long as its outlook for medium-run inflation was not higher than, say, Y percent.
I believe that policy should be state-contingent and systematic, and that the FOMC should strive to explain its policy reaction function — how it expects to change policy as economic conditions change. A Taylor rule is one such reaction function, but research indicates that other simple rules are good guides to policy even when the true model of the economy is uncertain. These rules involve policy responding aggressively to deviations of inflation from its target and also responding to deviations of output from some concept of its potential. In addition, the rules tend to involve some smoothing of the policy rate over time rather than sharp jumps in rates. Using such robust rules as guides to policy is, in my view, the appropriate way to communicate policy guidance. As a result, as many of you know, I have never been an advocate of calendar-date forward guidance. I thought it was a mistake when we implemented that language, and it remains a nettlesome communication problem.
Finally, I also opposed September’s decision to purchase additional mortgage-backed securities. In general, central banks should refrain from preferential support for one sector or industry over another. Those types of credit-allocation decisions rightfully belong to the fiscal authorities, not the central bank. Engaging in such actions endangers our independence and the effectiveness of monetary policy.
The Fed’s most recent actions carry with them significant risks. I am not forecasting that those risks will necessarily materialize and I hope they will not. But if they do, they could prove quite costly to the economy. It is therefore important that we understand those risks and evaluate them in assessing policy. A common error in policymaking is an excessive focus on the short term and an underestimation of the longer-term consequences of policy choices. I take the longer-term risks I have outlined today quite seriously. In my view, the potential costs outweigh what appear to be meager potential benefits of further asset purchases and extended forward guidance.

What is he saying?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with “Fed Speak” and the manner of economists, here is the translation.
  1. The voting members of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, staff economists, and the Presidents of the Twelve Federal Reserve banks, all have varying opinions regarding the economic data that they are collecting. And while they may use the same data, their viewpoints are often different and it remains up to the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) to develop a consensus opinion on the path forward.
  2. Nobody seems to have answers which may be used to craft an effective monetary policy that would navigate us out of the financial mess in which we find ourselves immersed. Therefore, the Fed is tinkering with the tools at its disposal and waiting to see if the economy improves. Sometimes the tools work and sometimes they don’t.
  3. There is a reluctance on the part of financial institutions to lend money and there is a reluctance on the part of consumers and industry to purchase additional goods and services or to employ more people. A reluctance born of uncertainty. An uncertainty whether or not President Obama will be re-elected and impose confiscatory taxes on anyone earning over $250,000 – thus severely impacting small businesses whose profit is taxes on an individual basis rather than as a corporation. An uncertainty whether or not Obamacare will demand that employee healthcare premiums will drastically increase in the future and thus gut any potential profits. An uncertainty if Obama’s foreign affairs policies and domestic energy policies will result in a major dislocation of energy costs which would drastically increase the costs of goods and services.
  4. That Plosser disagrees with current Federal Reserve policy because his personal risk/reward ratio appears to be calculated somewhat differently from the other members of the Fed.
  5. If everything is not managed correctly, the “fit will hit the shan” and our economy and way of life will take a severe hit.
Bottom line …
Unless Barack Obama is defeated in the upcoming Presidential election and the tax and spend democrat/socialists are fail to achieve a majority in both the House and the Senate, it is likely that we will suffer from continued uncertainty and economic woes – and job problems this economic depression will be extended for many years to come.
On a personal note, the government, as well as the Federal Reserve, are implementing policies – undeclared taxes – which provide that individuals will not earn a decent return on their deposits, investments and retirement accounts due to a stated ZIRP (Zero Interest Rate Policy) until 2015.
For the insiders, the politically well-connected, unions and special interests, they will be doing business as usual – raping the consumer and American taxpayer for more and more money while delivering fewer and fewer benefits. As a prime example, we have pumped BILLIONS into education and the result is a declining education rate. Perhaps we should spend more money on the achievers and less on the troublemakers. Perhaps we should enact severe cuts (or implement vouchers) to force the achievers to reform the system and leave the mediocre slackers behind. In the area of energy independence, open up our reserves full-on and develop more refining capacity – achieve the energy independence and deport the socialists and communists back to their previous “workers paradise” they imagine in their wildest dreams.
In the final analysis, take care of yourself and your family first. The current government is not going to help you survive the crisis, they are going to pick your pocket until the misery – not prosperity – is shared among all.

P.S.  My favorite economist joke involves three economists who went hunting. Standing in a line, they all saw the same deer. The economist on the right fired and missed about a foot to the right. The economist on the left fired and missed about a foot to the right. The economist in the middle starts jumping up and down, scaring the deer back into the woods. The two angry economists turned to their friend and demanded an answer for his noisy display. Hardly containing himself, he replied, “Well done – on the average, we bagged him!”

Chicago’s David Axelrod was a senior political advisor to former President Bill Clinton as well as current President Barack Obama. Axelrod left  the White House position of Senior Advisor to Obama to become the Senior Strategist for Obama’s re-election campaign. If anyone should know the policies and plans of Barack Obama it is David Axelrod.
Yet, listen to him speak about Social Security on the “Morning Joe” television program …
The question is simple …
What is the President proposing to do to reform Social Security? Save it for future generations? And will it involve lower benefits for anyone or higher taxes for anyone?
Listen to Axelrod stumble through a “non-answer.” Proving that Axelrod is unwilling to speak about the issue, except in the most general, bland and benign terms. Highlighting the fact that Barack Obama – like so many other things in his Presidency – is winging it. Leaving the heavy lifting to others and failing to show even the barest signs of leadership.
Bottom line …
Obama is an empty suit and has only a socialist ideology to fall back upon. Without a TelePrompTer and a speech written and focus-group-tested, he has no ideas of his own. He and most in his administration are inept and incompetent.
This is not a man that can be trusted. Trusted with our economy. Trusted with foreign affairs. Or trusted with our lifeline benefits of Social Security and Medicare which we have purchased with our hard-earned taxes over a lifetime in the workforce.
Throw the Obama and his fellow travelers out of office. Preserve your health and retirement from those who want to nationalize all government benefits. Stealing your retirement savings and doling them out as they see fit.

Passing this request along as I believe it is truly urgent.  Thanks!
I have a prayer request. 
There's a lady I've known forever. She's very sick.
On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom she has given everything.....
 
Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just
breaks my heart. 
Seems there's nothing I can do alone but maybe, if we join
in and lift her up together, we can heal her.
 
She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is ' America '...
And I love her and have always been proud of her.Please take time to say a prayer for her - even if it is a short, simple prayer like,
 
"Lord, please heal our land. Amen."  
 
Thanks! 
 
Requesting 40 days of prayer for our country, beginning September 28, 2012 and through election day! 
 
"If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I
hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
(2 Chronicles 7:14)  
 
REMEMBER 40 DAYS OF PRAYER BEFORE THE ELECTION ---
IT STARTS SEPTEMBER 28, 2012!
 

Why not start now?

Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life?
 
The answer is no, you did not. Just ask yourself WHY?
Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's history."
 
AN AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RESPONSE:
 
Dear Mr. Obama:
 
Were those Muslims that were in Americawhen the Pilgrims first landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
 
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving Day?
Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
 
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?  Declaration of Independence?  Bill of Rights?  Didn't think so.
 
Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England?  No.
 
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America?
No, they did not.
 
In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.  Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves."  Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?
 
Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?  Not present.
 
There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
 
Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?  Again, not present.  In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture so much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.  Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?
 
Where were Muslims during World War II?  They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.  The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.
 
Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?  If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.  No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.
 
Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post
9-11.  To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
 
And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here
in America...
 
Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the BarbaryPirates. They were Muslims.
 
And we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hoodby a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle inIraq and Afghanistan.
 
That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" inAmerica.
 
EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD READ THIS & keep this in mind, when you vote!!
Muslim Heritage, I don’t think so, not in this country.  Share this message.
