Not Ready to Make Nice

    I’m not sure the Chicks intended this particular angle. But I made this a while ago, and thought it appropriate for the 7th anniversary. -TS

    Seven Years Ago Today, I Became An American

    Promoted by absentee (I write this after midnight due to RL issues, but I did want to get this down.) Seven years ago today, on September 11, 2001, I became an American. There was no swearing-in ceremony. There was no recitation of the pledge of allegiance to my new country. No judge in black robes. All of those things had already happened five years earlier. | Read More »

    Catharsis

    I’m one of those people. You know, I never have really talked about 9/11 in terms of how it impacted me. I mean a few people know, but you know? I remember it quite vividly actually, I had the experience of being a participant in the Georgia Youth Summit held at Rock Eagle, in beautiful Eatonton, Georgia. I had been to Rock Eagle many times | Read More »

    “Obsession” in Dearborn: A Recap

    The Dearborn screening of “Obsession” was more than I had bargained for. In a city that boasts the largest proportion of Arab Americans for a city of its size (nearly a third of the total population), the outcry over the film screening was quite minimal, perhaps even non-existent. This is quite something. Unlike the University of Florida, who, fearful of backlash from Arab students, banned | Read More »

    He Never Forgot You

    In both Denver and St. Paul, I interviewed dozens of people on dozens of topics. I’m going to try to post some profiles over the next few days. This one is from St. Paul. Bob Hemenway I met Bob at the “An American Carol” reception in St. Paul last week. Today of all days, I am so grateful to have met him. He was walking | Read More »

    9/11 From The Leftist View

    Just thought I would share with you this piece of filth I found. I have been looking around at different site’s to see the feel of the country today. I never dreamed I would see such a reprehensible opinion on a day like today. This make’s it clear as day that the enemy of this country is actually the far left lunatic’s who occupy the | Read More »

    “We have met the enemy and they are ours.”

    Yesterday marked the anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie, September 10, 1813. On that day, Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry led the young United States of America to naval victory in Put-In-Bay, Ohio, against the British during the War of 1812. A super-quick history: Perry was aboard the USS Lawrence, which had been named after Captain James Lawrence. Lawrence had died earlier in the year, | Read More »

    How soon we have forgotten

    9/11 — We all have our stories. I was caught 2300 miles away, with 5 children. We were to fly out that morning. We had to drive from San Diego to the Midwest — in a mini van. Along our way, we saw American Flags over every overpass. People would wave to us. Folks were handing out American Flag T shirts. We got to see | Read More »

    Cry Out

    My two observations on 9/11.

    First: our prayers for the dead and their families and loved ones. May the latter, especially, have the strength to get through this day, and the days the follow. Second: I’M STILL HERE, you miserable, misogynistic, homophobic, anti-Semitic, hate-filled, cowardly fantasy ideologist son-of-a-bitch. I just went out to feel the wind and the sun on my face. When’s the last time you got to do | Read More »

    The proximity of 911 Anniversaries to Election Days: An example of Providence? [updated]

    By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report If a President won’t defend America, it won’t be defended. I think this adage is driven home at a most opportune time before we choose Commanders in Chief. Does anyone doubt that President Bush benefited from the third anniversary remembrance of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against John “international test” Kerry? | Read More »

    A Brief Reflection on September 11, 2001

    It began as a wonderful summer morning in New York- crisp and clear, with a touch of fall and its bounty. Unsuspecting travelers boarded aircraft, perhaps looking forward to flying in such beautiful weather and the stunning views to be had with a cup of coffee by the passenger window. It ended in fire and ash and tragedy. There were countless displays of courage under | Read More »

    Screening “Obsession” in Dearborn, Michigan

    (Updated below.) Today I am flying to Dearborn, Michigan, where I will be attending a screening of a documentary titled “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West” – a film that I have discussed here before – which is being sent nationwide, included in newspapers and magazines as a way of reminding voters of the threat we face from Islamic terrorists, and how the result | Read More »

    9/11 research could make fusion power breakthrough

    BBC reports that research into the building collapses on 9/11 has illuminated properties of steel at high temperatures. Fusion power researchers hope that research into the effects of magnetism on very hot steel will lead to the creation of new materials that can take the heat, which would allow the construction of better nuclear fusion chambers.
