I salute thee…


To the country that has played a big part in keeping my hopes alive, the country known to many around me as “The Great Satan”—United States of America, I salute thee!

When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea. He means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect. Adlai Stevenson

If you take advantage of everything America has to offer, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. Geraldine Ferraro

Of all the supervised conditions for life offered man, those under U S A's constitution have proved the best. Wherefore, be sure when you start modifying, corrupting or abrogating it. Martin H. Fischer

We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls. Robert J. McCracken

Ours is the only country deliberately founded on a good idea. John Gunther

If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace. Hamilton Fish

Only Americans can hurt America. Dwight D. Eisenhower

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

The leftists should think about the above two quotes.

I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Francis Bellamy, The Youth's Companion, 8 September 1892

I salute that flag out of gratitude and enormous respect.
Not an American (alas) I'm very aware of the debt we who live in freedom owe your country.

Kg,

I, too, am not an American. It might sound weird to many but today whatever I have I owe it to this country. If it weren't for the US, I'd still be living in the darkness thinking and praying about killing those who disagreed with my creed.

There are many different things that inspire people to search for the truth, for me it were the values and principles of the US.

May God bless this country.

"There are many different things that inspire people to search for the truth, for me it were the values and principles of the US."

I was very lucky, AA coming from a society that adhered to many of the same values as the U.S. and being the son of migrants who moved to a country that also shared those values.
But the United States has always for me represented the "gold standard" of those values, whatever her faults.
Because at the end of the day that flag, more than any other represents liberty. In these days of anti-Americanism I just hope our friends remember how many of us are allies.

La Cucaracha Hugo:

La cucaracha, la cucaracha
Ya no puede caminar
Porque no tiene, porque le falta
Marijuana que fumar.

(The cockroach, the cockroach
Now he can't go traveling
Because he doesn't have, because he lacks
Marijuana to smoke.)

Ya la murio la cucaracha
Ya la lleven a enterrar
Entre cuatro zopilotes
Y un raton de sacristan.

(The cockroach just died
And they carried him off to bury him
Among four buzzards
And the sexton's mouse.)

I agree. The Star Spangled Banner is beautiful. Whenever and wherever it waves, it gives hope to millions around the world.

In these days of anti-Americanism I just hope our friends remember how many of us are allies.

Its a shame how many people around the world are against America, even though many of them don't know why they're against her, why they're burning her flag, why they're chanting 'Death to America'. The world doesn't like it when the Americans believe in and stand for their values, they have the same attitude toward Israel.

Well I have one message for them, To hell with your whining, I stand by America and Israel.

I love my country. I want to fight the Islamofascists. However, it is worse than you think. The conservative White House, with its "compassionate conservatism", is worshiping at the alter of diversity by its silence regarding the supposed "moderate" Islamists in the US.

I am glad to see the new posture that Bush is taking. It is definitely needed. However, I am very disappointed with Bush's lack of addressing the Islamists in this country. Mr. President, read the Quran and the Hadith. Islam is NOT a peaceful religion.

The supposed moderates in the Islamic community in the US are anything but. The enemy is here amongst us.

The MSM is worshiping at the alter of diversity as well when it comes to "moderate" Islamists in the US. If these "moderate" organizations were privately raising money for the Klan, they would be all over them. The country would be inundated with special reports on the evil two faced "moderates". The nation would rally to the cause and address the enemy in our midst.

Yet the media gives a complete pass on:
WAMY - inspire muslim youth in America to become martyrs, DAR AL-HIJRAH - The 9/11 mosque preaching hate and Jihad, Muslim World League and its spin-off the International Islamic Relief Organization both suspected Al-Qaida fronts, Dar al-Arqam, led by cleric Ali al-Timimi rejoiced at the Columbia Space Shuttle exploding claiming it as a "good omen", SAFA GROUP large organization fronting several money laundering organization for Islamists, and my favorite CAIR, whose leader is video taped praising Hezbollah and Hamas. CAIR is even recognized by the White House as an example of peace-loving Islam.

Research these, especially CAIR. Bush needs to awaken. The fox is in the hen house, and the owner of the hen house seems to be just fine with it.

It's true, and my family on both sides have worn the uniforms of the USA. I was raised an Air Force brat, this country is in my blood, because my blood has been spilled on and for her!
AA- Got a note from ExP, you now have a strong warrior on your side! Prayers go up for you, you are in another type of battle! G*D will prepare you for it, remember what David said, "HE teaches my hands to battle and my fingers to war!"

Amen to that. If it was not for the USA AND ISRAEL we would soon be forced to chant: Allah al akhbar (spelling, but I don`t even want to know how to spell it).

Shalom and peace.

Forgot to mention:

Without USA and UK we would have been forced to chant: Heil Hitler... for the past 60 years...

And we, the faithful and staunch, salute you, AA, for your courage embodies the very passion upon which this country was founded. God bless and protect you, Sir.

AA,
Ours is the only country deliberately founded on a good idea. John Gunther

I haven't seen that statement from John Gunther for many years. What an excellent writer he was! Have you ever read Death, Be Not Proud? The book is not Gunther's usual; rather, it is a tribute to his son, who died of a brain tumor.

I'm so glad to read that my country gives you hope. Once again, I am grateful to be an American. I should meditate upon that blessing more often.

You are in my prayers every day. And in the prayers of many.
