Not just another pretty face!

No Sir, not on your life!!!

An article posted on Family Security Matters:
"Be Careful What You Wish For-
You Might Just Get It."

This article written by Peter Farmer:  Historian, commentator, scientist and medic. 
  A story printed in U.S. News/MSN by Jeff Black was entitled:  "Women in the infantry?  Forget about it, says  female Marine Officer."  I regret that I've been unable to find the name of the Women Marine Officer that allegedly made that statement.
  As a Marine from the Vietnam Era, the story caught my eye almost immediately.  Considering the Marine Corps, the statement that was supposedly made is totally uncharacteristic of a Marine Officer, either male or female.
  In Peter Farmer's article he points out many reasons why women Marines should not consider infantry as a goal in their Marine Corps career.  Number one Mr. Farmer, the Army calls their ground troops infantry, the Marines call their ground troops "grunts".  In pointing out that women Marines should stay behind the lines of combat, I feel I must point out that the Vietnam war ended any visible lines.  There has been no behind the lines since the end of WWII.  In Vietnam, the line was wherever "Charlie" decided to show up.  The wars we are fighting in the Middle-East, are similar to Nam, except we have traded swamps and jungles for deserts and stone villages, six inch long jungle river leeches for camel spiders.  However, the enemy is similar in many aspects.  Like the Viet Cong, the Insurgents, the Taliban and Al Queda choose the time and place for the fire-fight.
  Before I start having a flashback, allow me to get back to the subject at hand, that being, Women Marines in combat situations.  First, let me say this:  Women Marines are not your run of the mill teenage girl that enlisted to accumulate educational grants for higher education.  Women who enlist in the Marine Corps are tenacious, and have the hearts of lions, just like the men.  Few people understand, that Marine is a Marine, first we are all riflemen, all grunts, and it doesn't matter the gender.  I would caution a person to NOT underestimate the ferocity of a unit of Women Marines.  The Marines are the best trained fighting force on the face of the earth, and it doesn't matter what gender you're speaking about.  Once a male or female earns the title "Marine" they will always be a "Marine". 
  For those who wish to read Mr. Farmer's article please click on the Family Security Matters link above.  In his article you will find a list of all the things he wrote to discourage Women Marines from volunteering for combat.  In my opinion, after reading Mr. Farmer's list, it will do nothing but make Women Marines more resolute in their choice of MOS.  One thing I learned, was that every Marine, male or female has a job to do, Marines fight as a team, always have, always will.  No Marines job is menial, but all are crucial to the success of the mission at hand.  Women Marines have been and are an intricate part of the Corps, and are not to be demeaned by coddling, or underestimated in the exercise of their endeavors.  The list you compiled is gives scenarios that certainly will make a women think twice about volunteering for a combat mission.  Unfortunately however, the list goes equally for all Marines, in combat, male and female.  For example sir:  I never enjoyed defecating and urinating outdoors, especially the trench I happened to be occupying at the time.  I did not enjoy being infested with parasites, or covered with leeches either.  Could I handle seeing my best buddy's arms and legs get blown off, no, honestly it wasn't something you handled, it was something you dealt with.  I know that Mr. Farmer was a medic, I just don't know how much time he actually spent as a combat medic.  In the Marine Corps, we have Corpsmen, and there are many of us that owe our lives to the bravery of these men.  I understand that today Corps also has female Corpsmen, I salute you!  If Women Marines can handle Corpsmen duties, then I believe our Women Marines can be just as aggressive as male Marines in any given situation.  (Just in case President Obama reads this, "corpsman" is pronounced "cor-man".)  Your list Mr. Farmer will not discourage Women Marines from combat, but in the end, I believe it will encourage them to execute, to improvise and to adapt and overcome with equal skill as any Marine in the Corps. 
  Mr. Farmer quotes Captain Katie Petronio as saying "infantry is one of those fields we need to leave alone."  She may be right, but then again, in Nam I heard men say they didn't want to be there either.  No one enjoys being shot at, mortared, or killing for that matter.  It's not a matter of choosing, it's a matter of duty!
  I am not in favor of women in combat, regardless of the service branch.  I was brought up chivalrously.  I was raised as the man, the protector of what we then called the weaker sex.  Since I've grown, I've seen women, mothers, wives deal with wounds, that would make the strongest of us men cringe and turn away.  Oh, I think the women can handle what is comes their way, and maybe even more so in some cases than men.
  It would be good to remember, the "no one hates war more than the warrior"!  I admire Women Marines for their courage and the strength they lend to the men.  If I was to ever face a combat situation again, God forbid, I would be honored to serve with today's Women Marines.
God Bless All Of Our Military Personnel

  There were several news items that crossed my laptop screen this morning, but this one stood up and slapped me right in the kisser. 
  The headline read:  Government Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned By Illegal Alien!  At first, I read the article on FSM website, then I followed up with a similar one on USA Today, CNN, CNS and Global News.  They all reported the exact same information.  Yes, for sure it was exactly 25 Illegals, and yes the flight school was also owned and operated by an Illegal Alien, and yes the school was located near Boston, MA.  The whole scenario is a bit unnerving, especially if you were around on that fateful 9/11/2001, and you watched the entire attack play out over and over again.  I personally, was in shock, I was sad and I cried, my wife and spent the whole day trying to console one another, and trying to make sense of it all.  I was employed by a major U.S. Airline, I was off on 9/11, but I returned to work a Nashville International Airport on 9/12.  I have rarely felt the kind of eeriness I felt when I entered the terminal, the silence was deafening.  On the ramp where I worked, there wasn't a sound, no jet engines winding up, not even a general aviation private plane was humming.  Like I said, it was extremely eerie.  The point I'm trying to make is the memories of 9/11/2001 are permanently etched into my brain, and will be there forever.  I am sure most of you share those same memories.  When 9/12/2001 arrived, the lives of every American would be changed forever, and they were. 
  Here is the question; if I can remember that day so vividly, why isn't that day in the minds of the Department of Homeland Security (which by the way was created because of the events of 9/11)?  Why isn't the sub department known as the TSA (Transportation Security Administration that was also created due to the events of 9/11) doing the job they were created to do?  The combined agencies DHS & TSA are supposed to vet foreign nationals when application is made to attend, train, and apply for flying certificates and private pilot licences.  After all, as taxpayers and citizens, we pay dearly with our blood, treasure and liberties for these two agencies to do all possible to keep us safe.  So, how is it the 25 Illegal Aliens were allowed to take flying lessons at a flight school owned and operated by another Illegal Alien?  Who awarded the owner Illegal Alien a license to operate a business in the first place?  A flight school at that!  Aren't local agencies aware that the suicide murdering Muslims on 9/11 took flying lessons in a number of American states?  Has it been that long, that those who are handing out business licenses in the Boston area, (just a hop, skip and jump) from NYC, didn't even question the flight school owner when he applied?  Can the American people be so apathetic, that an Illegal Alien can obtain permission to operate a flight school, and worse yet give flying lessons to some 25 more Illegal Aliens.  I find this unfathomable, really I do!
  As if the school scenario isn't enough to scare you, how about this?  Not one single article mentioned the nationality of the flight school owner, or the national origin of the 25 flight school students.  Oh, believe me I hunted the Internet to see if I could glean nationalities of any of the people involved, NO JOY!!!  I also wonder how the number of "25" un-vetted students came up?  Was it a calculated guess?  How long has this flight school been in operation?  Could a more realistic number be 250 or 2,500 Illegal Alien students?  Were the students from Mexico, Canada, South America, or could they possibly be from the Middle-East?  Was the owner of the flight school from the Middle-East?  If he was a Muslim, where did he get the financing to start a school.  Flying schools can't be cheap to open up!  The the training airplanes alone could run the overhead well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. 
  When I consider that main stream media are almost always less than truthful and forthcoming with accurate and unbiased information for the American people, I will attempt to use my own powers of deductive reasoning.  "The reason that no names have been mentioned in any of the press releases is in my opinion, because the owner operator and all his students are Middle-Eastern (Muslims, that is!).  Had the owner been from Mexico, his name would surely have been mentioned.  Had the unvetted Illegal Alien students been for Mexico, Canada, South America, surely the press would have released the names of all involved, along with their nations of origin.  No, I believe in my heart of hearts, that no names have been mentioned, because the authorities fear Islam, and because of that fact alone, I don't even think charges will be filed.  If for some fluke of the system, charges are filed, Mr. Eric Holder and President Obama, will not pursue or in-dict.  If left alone, the entire thing will be quickly and quietly swept under the rug in the Oval Office (which by the way, that rug should be really lumpy by now.)! 
  If my deductions are in fact correct about the national origin of the flight school owner, and all (not just the 25 mentioned)Napolitano (who is paid some real serious dough) to see to that things like this do not happen, would be thrown into the slammer in the deepest bowels of the earth, never again to see the light of day.  In my mind, there is no excuse for this degree of incompetence in either DHS or TSA, regardless of the national origin of the owner or students.  It isn't like there hasn't already been ample time to set up a reasonable and responsible vetting system for Illegal Aliens attempting to get flying lessons.  I think that Janet Napolitano (Dir. of DHS) and her counterpart at the TSA, have been spending way to much time frisking wheelchair bound grandmothers, feeling up little children and attractive ladies of all ages, squeezing coloscopy bags of senior men and women, steeling valuables from traveler's luggage and eating the candy stolen from a deaf passenger's carry-on right in front of him, while calling him derogatory names.  Oh but wait, there's more.  One of Janet Napolitano's target terrorist groups is of course the TEA Party people.  Never mind the New Black Panthers, they're cool friends of Obama and Eric Holder.  In my opinion, and I will more than likely be put on the DHS/TSA no-fly list, but the entire organization is a complete joke!  Everything from Janet Napolitano's "there's a skunk on my head hairdo, to the burkha wearing Muslim TSA agent screening American citizens."

If you live in Tennessee, and you think your legislature voted to ban Sharia, well then why didn't they tell Governor Bill Haslam?
  Islam has a name for Christians and Jews who refuse to convert to their way of thinking, that word is "Dhimmi".  A dhimmi, in essence is a slave of Islam, and is required to pay jizya, a fine for not being Muslim.
  It seems, according to the Governor's economic plan for Tennessee, it requires Tennessee to become familiar with "Sharia Finance", in other words, it means that the government offices and officers, Tennessee banks, and other lending institutions will soon be required to become "Sharia compliant".  In actuality, when His Honor the Governor hired and appointed Samar Ali to be Tennessee's International Business Director, he immediately became "Sharia Compliant" without even knowing it.  One of the questions that has been sticking in my craw is:  Why, in the past 5 or 6 years has it become so very important for our federal, state and local governments to become "Sharia Compliant"?  If this is still America, then why isn't it necessary for Muslim businesses to become "American Compliant"?  It is apparent to me that Tennessee's governor has not spoken with Dr. Bill Warner, an expert on Islam and it's workings.  Dr. Bill Warner is easily accessible as he is a resident of Tennessee.  By accepting "Sharia Finance" as part of the business plan for Tennessee, Governor Haslam has no idea of the size of the cow-pie he just stepped in, and for that matter, shoved his state and his state businesses in also, face down!  I'm sure that the Governor sees this as a positive step toward opening business relations with Islamic countries, but in essence, Muslims see this as a submission to Allah.  Agreeing to anything from real estate deals to business loans, if you are required to transact business according to "Sharia Finance" you have just bowed and submitted to the will of Allah and Mohammad. 
  "Sharia Finance", imposed on American companies and governments is submission to Islam, plain and simple.  "Sharia Finance" is the first step of "stealth jihad".  A foot in the door, as it were.  Because so many Americans are either misinformed, or totally uninformed they will be hammering nails in America's coffin, and they won't even know they are wielding the hammer.  Ignorance of true Islam, is a death sentence.  Entering into business arrangements with Muslims under "Sharia Finance" is like cutting your own throat.  When one understands Islamists and how they practice deceit like honing a fine edge, you will realize that is exactly what the Muslims are doing, honing a fine edge on the sword that will cut through the life-blood of America's financial system. 
  I find that I can't emphasize it enough;  it is imperative for Americans, especially for those in places of authority, to actually pay attention to what the outspoken Muslim Imams in this country are saying!  If you just listen, you will hear what Islam's intent for the West is, and exactly how they intend to accomplish that goal.  Their first step is to convince uninformed and misinformed local governments that "Sharia Finance" is necessary if you want to do business with Islam.  I contend, there is absolutely no good and justifiable reason to do business with Islam in the first place, especially under their demands and laws.
  I strongly suggest that Governor Haslam obtain a copy of "A Teacher's Guide To Muslim Students".  It was sent out to the teachers of the Rutherford County School District by the new Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, TN.  The first page and a half deals with Islam itself, but the bottom of the second page is where the demands of Islam on behalf of Muslim students begins.  The following appeasements are discussed (demanded):  1.)  Changes in school menus to accommodate Muslim students, and special rooms set aside for their special fasting times.  2.)  Accommodations for Muslim students to pray during school hours.  (I wonder how many schools in Tennessee make special arrangements for Christian students to pray during school hours?)  3.)  Special physical education and showering arrangements, i.e., Muslim students should not be forced to participate in joined swimming classes.  Muslims students should all have their schedules arranged so that they have P.E. at the last class of the day, so they may go home and shower.  4.) Family and Sex education classes must be approved by the local Islamic Center, as Muslim students are more modest than American students.  5.)  Muslim students are required to attend congregational worship called Jumaha, and that takes place every Friday at midday, at the Mosque.  (So special arrangements need to be made for Muslim students to be released from school at midday every Friday for worship.  When was that last time your child was released early on a school day to attend church for a Holy Day?)  6.)  Schools will be expected to keep track of Islamic Holy Days, and of course they change every year on a lunar month which is marked by the appearance of a new crescent moon.  7.) Gender Relations, Islam prescribes certain parameter for children who have reached puberty.  Many Muslim students will not even shake hands or be touched by someone of opposite sex.  This is not to be taken as an insult.  (It's just the way we are, deal with it Dhimmi.)    (I saved the best demand for last.  This is where Muslims throw our 1st Amendment Constitutional rights in our face.  Because Christian and Jewish students are not even afforded these rights in America's Public School System.)  8.)  " Prayer, fasting, pilgrimages, religious celebrations as well as dietary and clothing requirements are Islamic practices.  The First Amendments to the Constitution, which protects the free exercise of religion, protects such religious expressions as the activities noted above in this letter.  Moreover, the Equal Access Act of 1984 (upheld by the Supreme Court in 1990) affirmed the right of student initiated religious activities in public schools."  (Of course there are additional demands in dietary menus, curriculum issues and last but not least Islamic Holidays.  Located on the letter's final page.)
  It is imperative that the people of Tennessee understand that these Muslims who are infiltrating your community, know the U.S. Constitution better than you do.  The fact that the above paragraph "8", was even included in this letter and guideline to Rutherford County Schools, is where the threat lies.  The above paragraph is telling the school administrators and teachers, that non-compliance (appeasement) to the demands of Muslims in Murfeesboro, will result in expensive litigation, and the school district, the county and the state will lose, and eventually submit to the demands of Islam.
  A Mosque/Islamic Center in any neighborhood, whether it be in Tennessee, New York, California, Washington or Oregon, and all the territory in between, the demands will always be the same.  
  Islam has but one goal, and contrary to popular belief, all Muslims have the same goal, that is Islamifcation of America.  American Christians, Jews, Agnostics, and Atheists need to have a common goal also, that being, the "Stopping of the Islamification of America."  Appeasement of Islam is viewed as weakness by Islam, keep that in mind Governor Haslam.
