Bring it

These socialists want violence. Listen to the way they talk, they sounds just like soviet communists. Well, if they want a war, let them bring it.

Troubled Patriot Update - October 2011

A good friend of mine has started a blog called, "The Bible and the Briar."  He's a Conservative Christian with a good grasp on theology and politics.  I recommend that you hop over and check out what he has to say. 

As for me, this past month has been... interesting.  I wrote before about the confrontation with a liberal.  He later apologized and claimed that he was drunk at the time.  He seems to be trying to make amends, but also has a knack for slamming conservatives whenever possible.  As I've discovered how impossible it is to talk to the man, I just let his comments roll of my back.  I actually feel sorry for him and the many others of like mind.  They have no clue that they're wrong.  They have huge hearts, but its all misplaced.

Speaking of which, as you previously noticed from my last posting, the liberals are out in force making free comedies for the rest of us to enjoy.  When I first saw the chanting video on YouTube, I kept thinking about how much this reminded me of a scene in "An American Carol."  I loaded up the movie, and there, in an almost perfect mirror example, was a scene where a crowd of American young adults mindlessly repeated liberal lines through robotic chanting.  There is of course the laughable chant, "What does nefarious mean?" but it suffices to point out a truth - these kids really have no clue what they're protesting.  They've listened to their leftist teachers (authority figures) demean capitalism for so long, that they strongly believe that it is the reason America is failing.  They have no idea that its actually leftist policies that have put this nation into its current, dreadful, situation.  There has to be some way of reaching them, I just have yet to figure out how. Its difficult battling an indoctrination that has consumed the majority of their young lives.

And then there is the debate surrounding Amanda Knox and the verdict of "not guilty."  I read WorldNet Daily every morning and stumbled upon an article by Ilana Mercer called "America's angelic OJ" where she crucifies Knox. Not having the ability to keep my opinions to myself, I posted a comment as to where I basically stated that I am unsure at this point if Knox is guilty.  I gave a few reasons why and also pointed out that this is not a mirror Simpson case. Obviously, I did not make any friends with that post.  So, for any others who have come here to find out if I'm a "clueless liberal" or not (as one commenter said), let me give you some reasons as to why I'm unsure.  Yes, I know the first trial ended up with a conviction, yet the second trial seemed to be about sloppy investigative work by the police force and questionable evidence. If the initial investigation itself was sloppy, that puts the evidence and police account of the murder into the realm of the "very questionable."  In the article referenced above, Mercer gave a list of "facts" that were discovered during the investigation.  She also proceeded to label Knox as a "sex addict."  In regards to her being a sex addict or not, I have no clue.  But having that addiction does not automatically encourage or lead one to commit murder.  As well, if the investigation itself was sloppy, how reliable are those "hard and fast facts" that Mercer referred to?

In the end, the jury found Knox "not guilty" based upon the testimonies and evidences submitted during the trial.  Some articles have reported that a few jurors had tears pouring down afterwords.  Now unlike Mercer and quite a few others, I do not believe for one second that the jury was influenced by "the American government, a media blitz, and or big business."  It makes no logical sense as to why an Italian jury would wish to overturn the conviction of an American simply to please various sects of a society foreign to them.  One or two maybe, but not the entire jury.  Believing otherwise colors both America and the jurists themselves in a dark and mistrustful light.  I am not prepared to do so.

It is also a great injustice to compare the jurists with those of OJ Simpson when he was acquitted.  The Simpson jury overwhelmingly voted "not guilty" purely based upon his race and a desire to "get even" with the white man. It was social justice during its finest hours. As such, there can be no honest comparison between the two.

The key issue appears to me to be one of elevated emotional responses. The murder of Meredith Kercher was a heinous act.  Thus, both sides of this case have been electrically charged. I truly believe what we are witnessing in this instance are emotional outbursts more than anything else. Since I am not influenced as such, perhaps that is why I view things differently.

On the other hand, I am not a supporter of Knox. I am not trying to advocate for her innocence, nor portray her in any other light what so ever. I simply am unsure as to what the truth really is.  She was convicted at the first trial, yet set free after the appeal. I've read that the Italian prosecution is seeking to appeal the "innocent" verdict.  Perhaps during the third trial, the truth will be finally known.

Until then, I remain unconvinced as to her guilt or innocence.

Ok, on to one other matter: I really have been trying to get back to the examination of Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and hope to have something up this week.

Ummmm.... Yeah.... Edited

I was going to write a large article tonight about the clueless protesters around the country, but then Drudge had to go ahead and post this.  You've probably seen it, but if not, grab some popcorn.  This is great!

Remind you of something?

Christianity and Evolution

This particular entry isn't geared towards atheists or agnostics. Instead, this is for those who call themselves Christians.  It also deals with the evolution vs. creation controversy.  First, let me make my stance perfectly and unabashedly clear - I'm a bible literalist, six day Creationist.

For the past few years, I have been scratching my head and wondering how Christians can fall for the man-made theory of evolution.  Obviously, the secular state institutions preach evolution and anyone who disagrees soon becomes demonized and ostracized. So, I can understand converts to Christianity not knowing that there could be anything else other than evolution to explain our existence.  But once one starts reading the bible, God's position is made very clear.  In fact, in the first chapter, verse 1, the bible states: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  Notice the word, created. The bible then goes on to list what God did, day by day. Those who read Hebrew and understand linguistic rules (if they are honest) must come to the conclusion that the bible means literal days. Yet, Christians ignore this.

Lets look on a couple initial contradictions in a believer's life who holds firmly to the view that evolution is true. First, after finishing creation, God said that everything was very good.  Not partially good, not ok, not a "whoops," but very good. The bible also says that death did not enter the world until sin entered the world.  The bible states that sin entered through Adam.  Thus, how can evolution be true if that before man "evolved," there were countless millions of years where, in the survival of the fittest, countless lives suffered torment and ultimately ended in death?  How could death have existed before sin? The Christian who believes in evolution has no answer for this. Second, if God saw His creation as "very good," then according to evolution, God considers death and suffering to be "very good."  As Christians, we know that this is not the character of God.

Then there is the issue that the facts simply do not support evolution.  Let me refer you to two great scientific ministries - Answers in Genesis and the Institute for Creation Research.  ICR has started a new monthly video series called, "That's a fact."  Their first entry raises the most simplistic of refutations to evolution, but ones that must be addressed. Both organizations are staffed with scientists who received their doctorates through secular universities.  A good portion of those scientists were once evolutionists who were faced with the facts.  In being honest, they became Creationists.

All of this information is out there, and every Christian is faced with these facts. Even I was an evolutionist before being saved.  When I started looking into the creation vs. evolution conflict, I let the facts determine the truth, not some atheist theorist (Darwin).  Why then, are there still Christians who hold fast to evolution?

That's when it hit me:  they do not really believe that the bible is the inspired Word of God.  Thus, they feel free to pick and chose what to believe.  But if that's so, how can they believe that Christ was God come in the flesh (fully man and fully God), lived a sinless life, died on the cross bearing our sins, and then rose from the grave?  Probably because it makes them feel good.  These are the same Christians who deny Hell.  Yet the same Jesus who they claim to worship also preached on the existence of Hell and eternal damnation.  Thus, they chose once again what to believe. At this point, I have to ask, what makes a Christian who holds these beliefs different than someone who follows any other religion (or has no religion at all)?  If everything is based on feelings, then there is no such thing as truth.  They follow their heart.  Yet the bible states that man's heart is deceitful and not to be followed.  These Christians might have heard of verses that mention this, but again chose not to believe.  Simply put, they have absolutely no foundation on which to stand.

In conclusion, I want to issue a challenge to every Christian who holds firm to the man-made theory of evolution: Examine the facts.  I posted links to two very reputable and scientific organizations.  I've mentioned some contradictions between what the bible says is the character of God, and what evolution says.  Honestly look at them.  I also challenge you to re-examine why you call yourself a Christian.  Is it because it makes you feel good?  Or is it something more?  If what Christ said about his conquering of sin true, then examine His other claims.  Be forewarned though, Christ was a Creationist.  Is man greater than God?  If not, why do you hold on to evolution? What exactly is your faith based upon?

Either God is true, or man is true.  Which one are you going to believe?  The evidence is out there.  Its up to you to decide.

An Attempted Discussion

I had an interesting experience tonight.  I got to talking with a neighbor at the apartment complex here and he started attacking jews and claimed that the two nuclear bombs dropped on Japan equated to a holocaust.  He obviously is clueless when it comes to the facts of the matter - of which the bombing actually saved hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides if America had simply invaded.  He also called Israel of being hardline killers of innocents, and when I tried to talk to him about the human shields that the terrorists used, he wouldn't let me finish. He stated that Israel was incredibly racist, but when I tried to mention how the Muslims and Christians in Israel are free to worship as they please and have the greatest freedoms than in any Arabic nation, he again cut me off.

Basically, it was Conservative vs. Liberal, and near the end he called me an idiot, a bigot, and insinuated to a passerby that I was going to hit him when I had no desire to do so at all, and said that he had no respect for me.  He then went on to state that he hates America's military (to quote, "F&^% America!") and really attacked them verbally.  At this point in the discussion (which he started), I realized that I was talking to a brick wall.

I guess the real issue is that you can't debate liberals.  You bring out logical arguments, and when they can't refute them, they resort to name calling and demonizing of character.  I truly feel sorry for my neighbor and people like him.

Cordoba Mosque Opens

Well folks, its happened.  The Cordoba Mosque has opened.  the UK's Mail Online reports:

The first part of Park51, the controversial Lower Manhattan Islamic community centre, is opening on Wednesday with an art exhibition featuring photographs of children.

Just a few blocks away from the site where the Twin Towers once stood, the exhibition marks Park51’s first big public event.
If this isn't a slap in the face to the victims of 9-11, I don't know what is.

Re:Painesville Mother of 4 Faces Deportation to Mexico

Painesville Mother of 4 Faces Deportation to Mexico

She's been here illegally for 16 years but can't speak English. She had a ton of anchor babies, and lived all that time off of the welfare system. I have not a single ounce of sympathy for her. She had plenty of time to apply for citizenship. The fact is, people like her don't seek to assimilate. She never wanted to be a Mexican-American. She wanted to be a Mexican who lives in America. Why she got benefits is thanks only to the socialists who want to see a one world government.

The sob story isn't about her risking deportation, the sob story is how she fed off of Americans for 16 straight years and didn't even respect the country enough to learn its language. Send her back to Mexico where she belongs!

Idiots Rage

Today is the so called "American Day of Rage" where a bunch of ill informed college students along with Communists descend upon Wall Street to protest banks and corporations.  Idiots.

Where do these people think jobs come from?  The government?  Hardly.  Its businesses, both big and small, that provide jobs.  Protesting capitalism reeks of communistic propaganda.  The Liberals wants to tax the rich and big business, reducing their income and accordingly their ability to create jobs.  How is any amount of tax against corporations going to succeed when those businesses no longer produce a strong stream of revenue?  By these acts, the buffoons are dooming America even further.

Students are upset about graduating with $100k in debt, and I do feel for them.  However, attempting to take down big business isn't going to help their cause.  Jobs are tanking now as it is, and anyone with any common sense knows that by taxing the rich and businesses, there will be even fewer jobs. Why not attack the universities for charging so much?  That's a much grander idea.  But no, the professors and academics balk at the idea of their money tree being pruned.

What America needs is to reduce taxes on the rich and big business.  Government needs to step back and ease all the restrictions along with the already draconian tax codes in existence.  Only then will the job market rebound.  And with more workers, a larger base for taxation will arise.  Its acknowledge that government needs taxation to function, and I agree.  But with wasteful socialistic funded programs and the bleeding dry of corporations, things will only get worse.

Liberals accuse Republicans of being in the "pocket" of big business.  At the least that's a misunderstanding, and at the most a lie.  Republicans - indeed Conservatives - are in the "pocket" of the every day American.  We know that governments can't produce revenue, only businesses can.  So that's why we fight against what the Communists are attempting.

At this point, a well informed person would think that the leftists would get a hint from Greece and the majority of the European Union (along with California) that big government run socialized programs do not work.  But then again, we have generations of drones who have "graduated" from our liberal universities.  They don't know how to think for themselves and either knowingly or unwittingly are attempting to tear America down from the inside out.

So today, the "educated" buffoons of America are trying to attack the core of America's greatness and Her ability to create jobs.  They're signing their own death warrants - and haven't a clue.

Listen below and you'll hear it from the man himself - American is responsible for 9-11.  Disgraceful.

Sep 12, 2011

Proud American

Folks, I'm going to say it - I'm angry.  I'm angry at people who blame America for the travesty of 9-11.  I'm furious at people who say that America acts like a bunch of thugs killing civilians by invading Middle Eastern countries.  I'm pissed off at Americans who hold their country in such a dim light.

America did not cause 9-11.  There was no government conspiracy, and our support for Israel is no excuse for the 2,996 people who were murdered ten years ago.  The United States supports numerous other countries, why is it that our support for Israel is evil?  It isn't.  Israel is a recognized nation.  They did not displace the Palestinians.  In fact, before Israel's existence, there wasn't even a group called Palestinians! They are a bunch of refugees who were supposed to be repatriated into Egypt and other Islamic nations, but were left to rot so as to be used as an excuse to attack Israel on the battlefield - both moral and militarily. Israel is the only truly democratic state in the area, and a staunch ally of America.  To turn our backs on them because a bunch of blood thirsty killers don't like it amounts to cowardice.

Concerning the civilian deaths in the conflicts, there is no one to blame but the islamists themselves who purposefully hide behind human shields.  In our country's paranoid rules of engagements, our troops can't even shoot at thugs setting up roadside bombs if they are in the vicinity of a civilian population.  They have to watch those death traps being constructed and wonder how many of their brothers and sisters will die because of them.

America went to war as a result of war being declared upon us.  People seem to have forgotten that nations such as Iraq were giving money to the families of suicide bombers and that the entire Middle East raises its children up in hatred and with a desire for death.  While Americans are fighting to live, these people are fighting to die. People say that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11.  They forget that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and used them on its own people - the Kurds.  As well, people seem to forget that prior to our invasion, military convoys were photographed via satellite heading into Syria.  That, my friends, is how Syria's nuclear program advanced so quickly.  As well, we did indeed find traces of WMDs in Iraq.  It was our folly to announce a date for invasion, giving Saddam time to shuttle off his incriminating evidence.

People say we were wrong to invade Afghanistan.  They forget about the Taliban and how Osama hid out in that country as well as Pakistan.  The Taliban (still in existence today) is an Islamic organization fully bent upon forcing the populace into following strict adherence to Sharia law - an evil law that subjugates and tortures people in the name of Allah.

Should we be in Afghanistan now?  Personally, I think not. Why?  Because our politicians are not allowing our military to fully propagate war.  Just as in Vietnam, our military's hands are tied politically and as a result, thousands of our soldiers have perished.  If we are not going to fight a real war, then we need to get out.

I'm upset at those who say that America is a terrorist nation because we used nuclear bombs to finish the second World War. These people are grossly ignorant of history.  They forget that on the islands of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, the Japanese fought to the death.  They do not understand that the entire island nation of Japan was preparing for a fight to the end.  Civilians were being trained in warfare and if we had invaded the home islands, the casualties calculated were tremendous.  To gauge the fanaticism of the Japanese empire of the day is the fact that it took two bombs to force the nation to surrender.  Even after the first nuclear bomb was dropped, they were still ready to fight to the death.  That was the resolve of our foe.  Those who decry our use of nuclear bombs seem to think that multiple hundreds of thousands of deaths - on both sides - were preferable to the bomb.  Are they bloodthirsty?

Unlike Obama and those who spit hatred and disgust towards this nation, I will not apologize.  In fact, I'm proud of this country's history and am blessed to be one if its citizens. Because of this nation's efforts, Nazism was stopped cold, and France, Britain and many other nations were spared dictatorship.  Communism, that evil humanistic policy of so called "equality," was destroyed.  The USSR fell and the wall between East and West Berlin was torn down.  This country was founded on individualism and greatness.  Her history is full of excellence from all walks of life: science, religion, freedom, technology, education, medical, etc.  How anyone can appologize for this blows me away.

Yes, America does have its faults, and is currently embroiled in a fight for its life thanks to the Progressive Communists at the helm and in our public institutions.  Yet there is still hope as the salt of the Earth Americans are standing up and shouting, "No more!  This is our country, and you can't have it!"

No, my friends.  Don't look to me for apologies.  This nation has nothing to be ashamed of, but instead, has everything to be proud of.  God bless the USA!

9-11: Ten Years Later

Ten years ago today, terrorists shouting “Allahu Akbar” slit the throats of innocent men and women, and then proceeded to fly passenger jets into the World Trade Center buildings, the Pentagon, and during a struggle for control, nosedived into a field in Pennsylvania. Ten years ago today, selfless men from New York's Police and Fire Departments rushed into buildings set ablaze by hundreds of gallons of jet fuel in a heroic attempt to save victims caught inside.  They and the victims were crushed to death when the buildings collapsed. Many others had jumped to their deaths in a final act of desperation to avoid burning to death.  Some jumped in pairs and held on to each other as they plummeted to their doom.  For a while, this act of war unified Americans of all political persuasions.  But not for long.

Today, conspiracy theorists blame either the government, the Jews, or big business for the attacks.  They say that there was no way that fully loaded jetliners could cause the Twin towers to collapse. They claim that Islamic hatred towards America is due to our “criminal acts” committed in the Middle East. Not only do I find this highly insulting, but treasonous.

The fact of the matter is that America was called the “Big Satan” way before 9-11.  Why?  Simple.  America is the world leader in personal freedom and democracy.  We encourage all faiths (or those with none). Even though America supports Israel, the Islamists would hate us even if Israel didn't exist as we are the largest Christian nation in the world - and they can't stomach that.

Since the events of 9-11, I have become a student of Islam – or more to the point, its history and existence as of today. From my research, I've come to conclude that Islam is demonically inspired.  Now, I've heard people tell me that all religions are “evil,” and the cause of wars.  To those who say such things, I respond by saying that “your ignorance is repulsive.”  The 20th century was filled with wars from the two World Wars through conflicts such as those in Vietnam, the Cold War, and other minor conflicts throughout the world. 

Neither World Wars were influenced by religion.  Both times, Germany attempted to bring the world to its knees, and it was not done in the name of Christ.  Japan murdered an untold number of victims in its attempt to become an empire, and that was not done in the name of any religion.  The rise of Communism (along with the Russian and Chinese revolutions) saw the deaths of millions – this certainly wasn't done in the name of religion.

People then point to the Crusades, but they are either ignorant of or unwilling to admit that the Crusades were a response to Muslim aggression and capture of the Holy Land. The simple fact is that atheistic humanism has caused more deaths and destruction in the past century alone then in the entire history of Christianity.

Now, there is one religion that has caused an untold amount of death and suffering.  That religion is Islam.  Indeed, in just the past ten years, Islam has racked up 17,720 terrorist attacks as of this date.  These attacks have resulted in many thousands of deaths, and hundreds of thousands more maimed for life.  Every single one was committed in the name of “Allah.”  Yet for some reason, people turn a blind eye to these facts and actually coddle up to these barbarians.  Now, before I begin, I must claim that I do not hate Muslims.  I do hate Islam itself, but not those who follow it.  There is a difference. I want to see those trapped under the wing of Lucifer freed.  I have a sincere heart for them.

9-11 should be a reminder to us all that Islamists (those whom are fully “sold” to the religion) seek death over life.  To die in Jihad is their ultimate goal, as it promises them “paradise.”  One cannot argue with such a mindset.

So while today we remember those who were lost, and weep for families that have been destroyed, we must also remember why and who committed these acts.  Is it to do so simply for revenge?  God forbid!  But we must remember so that it will never happen again.  Until Islam truly moderates itself, acknowledges that it cannot co-exist with free societies as it is today, we cannot turn our backs blindly to those who practice this demonically inspired religion.  Already they are building the Cordoba Mosque mere blocks from the remains of the Twin Towers.  In fact, the building they are replacing was damaged from the 9-11 attacks.  The memorial in Pennsylvania horrifically represents the Islamic symbol - the crescent, and each year we give more and more concessions to Islam that we wouldn't dare think of giving to Christianity – or any other religion.

We must stop being afraid and every time Islam attempts to influence America, we should think back to the 2,996 victims of 9-11.  They are 2,996 reasons why Islam cannot be trusted in its current state.

“But they are only radicals hijacking a religion!” you may protest.  I disagree.  In fact, many converts to Islam suddenly become aggressive and have been convicted over the past few years for either attempting or aiding and abetting terrorists attacks. Those who truly believe have a surplus of scriptures from their “holy Koran” that incites violence, jihad, and murder.  Those we call “moderates” are those who, for some reason, are the equivalent to liberal Christians – denying much of what is written in their own scriptures.

Today, let us drop our conspiracy theories, stop calling our own nation “criminal,” stop apologizing to the world for this nation's greatness, and accept the facts as they are.  To do otherwise shames the memories of those who died ten years ago on September 11, 2001.

Our Lady of Freedom
By Philip Damon
Born in conflict this nation was,
A hope for the world to see.
A fight for freedom from tyranny’s jaws,
By a people who must be free.

A nation to be ruled by a people as one,
No matter what the cost.
So off we sent our daughters and sons,
That this freedom would not be lost.

Freedom called, the nations bled,
As evil played its hand.
So America took this world and led
The charge on foreign sand.

From France to England to the Philippines,
Our nation rose as one.
An army of boys still in their teens,
Sacrificed all ‘til freedom was won.

Terror struck our heart one day,
And mothers learned to weep.
Then American’s rose with one voice to say,
“Our freedom we will keep!”

Through wars and strife our flag yet stands,
Its stars and stripes revealed.
Not on our knees nor on our hands
Will this nation ever yield!

Remember today the cost that was paid,
The price for freedoms held dear.
Many bodies, in graves were laid,
So that our citizens would never fear.

Tyrants and rulers hide in terror,
As America raises her fists.
This lady is our standard-bearer
Flag held by unbending wrists.

Through wars and strife our flag yet stands,
Its stars and stripes revealed.
Not on our knees nor on our hands
Will this nation ever yield!

9/11 Tribute to David D. Alger

How does one perform an adequate tribute to the life of a man?  How does one reach out, and through meager words, attempt to describe the life of one who has touched many?  Though an entire library of books may be written, they would not do justice concerning that individual. As a writer, I have come to the stark conclusion that words become insufferably inadequate when they attempt to speak of David D. Alger. However, this is a task that I have humbly undertaken.

David Alger was born on December 15, 1943.  He entered into the world during a time of crisis.  It seems almost prophetic that he would leave the world at the beginning of another.  Born in California, he grew up in Gross Pointe, Michigan. He attended Harvard University where he majored and then graduated with a diploma in history.  He then went on to the University of Michigan where he not only received his M.B.A, but would eventually earn the Alumni Achievement Award which “recognizes alumni of the Business School whose attainments in their professional fields have brought distinction to themselves, credit to the School and benefit to their fellow citizens.”

In 1968, he started his career as a securities analyst.  With talent promoted by hard work and strong ethics, he quickly ascended the corporate ladder.  By September of 2001, he was the executive vice president and chief financial officer of Fred Alger Management.

David made numerous appearances on financial shows.  A common place to find him was on CNBC’s Squawkbox.  Not content to follow the common practices of others, he developed a successful, yet unorthodox program that involved computer modeling.

Although his professional life was indeed impressive, it was through his personal character that he truly shined.  While researching the life of this great man, I came across numerous testimonies written by those who knew him.  What they wrote of was not his business achievements, though they were many, but of his character.  Some of those tributes can be found at the David D. Alger Guest Book hosted by legacy.com. 

Katie Quinn Harvey described an instance where a client became irate and proceeded to curse over the phone.  She went on to write:

He (David) let me put the call through and told the man that he could have his money back from the fund and if he ever spoke to his staff again in an disrespectful manner that he'd "head butt him"...he then called me at my desk and asked if I was okay. He praised me for my patience with this man and apologized that I had to deal with him at all and assured me it had been taken care of….This big powerful man actually cared about the lowly new phone rep.

Lissette Morales wrote:

Mr. Alger: You always had a smile on your face and always were interested in talking to my parents and me. You have always treated us with respect and kindness and have inspired me in more ways than you can imagine.

Patricia (Pat) Whalen, whose daughter also lost her life on that fateful day, wrote:

My daughter had been hired by David to begin working at the firm upon her graduation from UofM in April 2000. So when she had asked if I wanted to come and meet her future boss, I didn't hesitate. I attended that evening and was amazed to learn what a kind, caring, and loving person he was. Upon seeing us enter the room, he hurried over to greet her with a BIG hug and said, "I wondered if you would be here tonight!" As Meredith's father had died when she was 11 and her sister was 9, it warmed my heart to know another caring male figure would be in her young life--and that she would not be just a "faceless" employee in just another firm in NYC.

There are countless other stories by individuals who were touched by David.  As it is not my place to list them all here, I implore you to go and read them for yourself.  They paint the picture of a man who was not aloof in his concerns for his company.  A charismatic man, he truly cared for each individual employee.  People who worked under him were not treated as mere numbers, but as individuals who mattered.  If only more employers would learn from the example set by him.

Not much could be found concerning his personal life, and perhaps that is best.  Yet it does not take a leap of faith to conclude that he was a loving husband, father and son.  Known for his bear hugs, the depth of love that he held for his family as well as the affection they held in return cannot be fathomed.

On that fateful September 11th morning in 2001, David was with other Alger employees on the 93rd floor of the North Tower.  The first to be struck, none who occupied it had any inclination that this vicious attack was about to take place. 

In the aftermath of the attack and our resulting loss of this great man, the University of Michigan renamed the “Alumni Achievement Award” to the “David D. Alger Alumni Achievement Award.”  A fine tribute, it encourages others to follow in his gigantic footsteps.

David D. Alger is survived by his wife and two daughters, as well as his brother and sister.  It is my profound wish that the legacy he started will endure well into the unforeseeable future.

Weekend of Mourning

This entry will be short and sweet.  Tomorrow, I will post a tribute and remembrance of the events that happened ten years ago. 9-11 is more than just a "Patriot Day," its a day where thousands of families will mourn the loss of their loved ones - victims and heroes.  It is not a day for celebration.

Every year I remember, and tears never fail to fall from my eyes.  Sunday I plan to wear my patriotic clothes, and take my motorcycle for a ride.  Mayhaps I will find others and we will link up.

Please return tomorrow and remember the events of ten year ago with me.  Post comments and tell us what you remember.  Let us never forget the dastardly attacks upon this nation, nor the cheers thrown up by the Muslims for the death and destruction that was at hand.  Remember.

More Union Hijinks

The Associated Press has reported on union workers having a little spat in Washington state.  It appears that

[the] International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that's staffing a workforce of other union laborers.
So, in a show of "solidarity" for (I assume) "Workers of America" [sic], they stormed the docks, threatened a police officer with a baseball bat, damaged railroad property, held security guards hostage, and then headed back to their pad for a few brewskies. Interestingly enough, even though they did all this (in addition to ignoring a restraining order),
No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested.
 But fear not, oh selfless and brave union workers!
"A lot of the protesters were telling us this in only the start."
 Keep showing that class, guys.  You're doing wonders for your public image!

God Bless America

Dear readers, the following is something that I got in an email.  It concerns... well, just read and listen to find out! I happened to get a dust mote in my eye while listening to this...

- A side note, I don't know who originally did this, so I don't know whom to give credit to.  But who ever did, thank you!

The video below is the very first public singing of “GOD BLESS AMERICA.” But before you watch, you should also know the story of the song. The time was 1940. America was still in a terrible economic depression. Hitler was taking over Europe and Americans were afraid we’d have to go to war. It was a time of hardship and worry for most Americans.

This was the era just before TV, when radio shows were HUGE, and American families sat around their radios in the evenings, listening to their favorite entertainers – and no entertainer of that era was bigger than Kate Smith. Kate was also large in size, and the popular phrase still used today is in deference to her, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.” Kate Smith might not have made it big in the age of TV, but with her voice coming over the radio, she was the biggest star of her time.

Kate was also very patriotic. It hurt her to see Americans so depressed and afraid of what the next day would bring. She had hope for America, and faith in her fellow Americans. She wanted to do something to cheer them up, so she went to the famous American song-writer, Irving Berlin (also wrote “White Christmas”) and asked him to write a song that would make Americans feel good again about their country. When she described what she was looking for, he said he had just the song for her. He went to his files and found a song that he had written, but never published, 22 years before - way back in 1917. He gave it to Kate Smith and she worked on it with her studio orchestra. She and Irving Berlin were not sure how the song would be received by the public, but both agreed they would not take any profits from “God Bless America”– any profits would go to the Boy Scouts of America. Over the years, the Boy Scouts have received millions of dollars in royalties from this song.

This video starts out with Kate Smith coming into the radio studio with the orchestra and an audience. She introduces the new song for the very first time, and starts singing. After the first couple verses, with her voice in the background still singing, scenes are shown from the 1940 movie, “You’re In The Army Now.” At the 4:20 mark of the video you see a young actor in the movie, sitting in an office, reading a paper – it’s Ronald Reagan. Frank Sinatra considered Kate Smith the best singer of her time, and said when he and a million other guys first heard her sing “God Bless America”on the radio, they all pretended to have “dust in their eyes” as they wiped away a tear or two…

To this day, “God Bless America”stirs our patriotic feelings and pride in our country. Back in 1940, When Kate Smith went looking for a song to raise the spirits of her fellow Americans, I doubt she realized just how successful the results would be – for her fellow Americans during those years of hardship and worry, and for many generations of Americans to follow… Now that you know the story of the song, I hope you will enjoy it and treasure it even more. God Bless America!
