FW: Thought this was pretty interesting!

One detail that is never mentioned is that in Washington , D.C. there can never be a building of greater height than the Washington Monument .

With all the uproar about removing the ten commandments, etc., this is worth a moment or two of your time. I was not aware of this amazing historical l information.

On the aluminum cap, atop the Washington Monument in Washington , D.C. , are displayed two words: Laus Deo.

No one can see these words. In fact, most visitors to the monument are totally unaware they are even there and for that matter, probably couldn't care less.

Once you know Laus Deo's history , you will want to share this with everyone you know. These words have been there for many years; they are 555 feet, 5.125 inches high, perched atop the monument, facing skyward to the Father of our nation, overlooking the 69 square miles which comprise the District of Columbia , capital of the United States of America .

Laus Deo! Two seemingly insignificant, unnoticed words. Out of sight and, one might think, out of mind, but very meaningfully placed at the highest point over what is the most powerful city in the most successful nation in the world.

So, what do those two words, in Latin, composed of just four syllables and only seven letters, possibly mean? Very simply, they say "Praise be to God!"

Though construction of this giant obelisk began in 1848, when James Polk was President of the United States , it was not until 1888 that the monument was inaugurated and opened to the public. It took twenty-five years to finally cap the memorial with a tribute to the Father of our nation, Laus Deo. "Praise be to God!"

From atop this magnificent granite and marble structure, visitors may take in the beautiful panoramic view of the city with its division into four major segments. From that vantage point, one can also easily see the original plan of the designer, Pierre Charles l'Enfant ..a perfect cross imposed upon the landscape, with the White House to the north. The Jefferson Memorial is to the south, the Capitol to the east and the Lincoln Memorial to the west.
A cross you ask? Why a cross? What about separation of church and state? Yes, a cross; separation of church and state was not, is not, in the Constitution. So, read on. How interesting and, no doubt, intended to carry a profound meaning for those who bother to notice.

Praise be to God! Within the monument itself are 898 steps and 50 landings. As one climbs the steps and pauses at the landings the memorial stones share a message.
On the 12th Landing is a prayer offered by the City of Baltimore; on the 20th is a memorial presented by some Chinese Christians; on the 24th a presentation made by Sunday School children from New York and Philadelphia quoting Proverbs 10:7, Luke 18:16 and Proverbs 22:6. Praise be to God!

When the cornerstone of the Washington Monument was laid on July 4th, 1848 deposited within it were many items including the Holy Bible presented by the Bible Society.Praise be to God! Such was the discipline, the moral direction, and the spiritual mood given by the founder and first President of our unique democracy "One Nation, Under God."

I am awed by Washington 's prayer for America Have you ever read it? Well, now is your unique opportunity, so read on!

"Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

Laus Deo!

When one stops to observe the inscriptions found in public places all over our nation's capitol, he or she will easily find the signature of God, as it is unmistakably inscribed everywhere you look. You may forget the width and height of "Laus Deo ", its location, or the architects but no one who reads this will be able to forget its meaning, or these words: "Unless the Lord builds the house its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain." (Psalm 127: 1)

It is hoped you will send this to every child you know; to every sister, brother, father, mother or friend. They will not find offense, because you have given them a lesson in history that they probably never learned in school. With that, be not ashamed, or afraid, but have pity on those who will never see this.

Fwd: How the roel [sic] of celebrity has changed

From Krista,

"I really love my mother, and she knows that I am a 'bleeding heart liberal' and a pacifist. I think she thinks if she keeps sending these, I will see the error of my ways and convert. I especially love the quote in her e-mail sig. She put it there after we had a long discussion about the war. She thinks that I can't be patriotic if I am a pacifist."

Talk later, Cindy

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Thank you Andy for sending this, a resignation speech by George W. Bush. Let me just write that again.. ahem... A RESIGNATION speech from George W. Bush. Ahh. Is that as fun to read as it is to type? This email is a variation of an older entry, only with a nice intro and illustrative pictures of our chief executive. I must say, his speeches are much more impressive without actually hearing the delivery.

---begin forward---

The following "speech" was written recently by an ordinary resident of the People's Republic of Maine. While satirical in nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. This is by a person who does not write for a living.
The speech George W. Bush might give:

Normally, I start these things out by saying "My Fellow Americans."

Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who

more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has

happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.

I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in a

lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution

or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or

impeachable offenses in this office.

The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people.

I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really

going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great

nation of ours. And the majority of you are too blasted lazy to

do your homework and figure it out.

Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians

and the news media. Polls show that the majority of you think

the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers

of homeowners, including record numbers of MINORITY

homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point

out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our

unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton

administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it

doesn't seem to have sunk in.

Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market

has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever

are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do

is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too darn stupid

to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased

demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful

of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront

property than your economic security.

We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this "blood for

oil" thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already

seized Iraq's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell.

And don't give me this 'Bush Lied; People Died' mess either.

If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had

chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.'

Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty.

Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam

had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime

change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office.

Some guy named 'Clinton' established that policy. Bet you didn't

know that, did you? Now you morons are considering another and

more evil Clinton for president !!!! Go figure that one!! She wants

to take your kids away and let the "Whole Village" raise them!

i.e. governmental indoctrination..... Look this one up you dummies!

You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy.

Back during the cold war, there were two major competing

political and economic models squaring off. We won that war,

but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted

to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to out spend

and out-tech them.

That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new

enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die.

That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to

taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are.

They want to kill you, and the rascals are all over the globe.

You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us

here in the United States since September 11. But you're not.

That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of

intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security

people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess

started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight.

I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult

fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'

Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing

things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do.

You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

Making matters worse, you actively support those who help

the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every

time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political

campaign, well, dang it, you might just as well FedEx a grenade

launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.

In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's

all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New

York Times USA Today or on NBC News. But even if it

were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would

rather watch American Idol.

I could say more about your expectations that the government

will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to

leave a city that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching.

I could say more about your insane belief that government,

not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've

come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over

your heads.

So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient

house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to

be fully self-sufficient for years. No one ever heard of Crawford

before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much

no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to

die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.

Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi

is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does

carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are

just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this

thing around in 2008.

So that's it. God bless what's left of America.

Some of you know what I mean.

The rest of you, kiss off.

FW: Malachi 3.3, This is great

"...this forward about god burning me was sent by my well-meaning mother. I don't want to be melted into liquid but I guess it's for my own good. I also love the unnecessary quotes around the word highest. I'd file this one under GOD, SILVER, and, ? Keep up the good work." -Kevin

---begin forward----
Silver is Latin from Ancient Greek meaning 'white,shining' it has the 'highest' level of electrical and thermal conductivity and acts as a mirror in photographic film used today. Only non-metal diamonds are higher! Thank you Father for 'sitting' and taking the time to refine me today to be a pure as white, and shining for you. Amen

Love to all who read this today, be blessed in the refining fire of our Father.

Malachi 3:3 says:

'He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.'

This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver.

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says:
'He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.'

She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined.

The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, 'How do you know when the silver is fully refined?'

He smiled at her and answered,

'Oh, that's easy -- when I see my image in it.'

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.

Pass this on right now. This very moment, someone needs to know that God is watching over them. And whatever they're going through, they'll be a better person in the end.

'Life is a coin. You can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

FW: Illegal Immigration & Cheap Tomatoes

Cheap Tomatoes


This English teacher has phrased it the best I've seen yet.

Tomatoes and Cheap Labor

This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent

From a California
school teacher - - -

"As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:

I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic
and income levels

Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens , Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have
cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing
funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America .

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less then 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas"
(whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical, free education, free food, day care
etc., etc, etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society be cause they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of ed ucation in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans, We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won't have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an
American culture that has become so weak and worried about "political correctness" that we don't have the will to do anything about it.

If this makes your
blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know.

CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage.

Consumers don't want expensive produce.

Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs.

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a
myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for
$5.00 or 6.00/hour. At t hat wage, with six dependents,
he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.

He qualifies for
Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.

He qualifies for
food stamps.

He qualifies for
free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.

children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.

requires bilingual teachers and books.

qualifies for relief from high energy bills.

they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer's expense.

He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers provide
Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in

Working Americans
are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills and his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT!
Wake up people!




FW: General Patton's Ghost

From Stan, "Despite my repeated pleas to not be sent right-wing forwards, I got this one from my hardcore Republican aunt. Patton's ghost scared me so bad that I immediately dropped everything and enlisted. OK, not really."

This is crude, but so TRUE!

Ghost of Patton!!

I think this is how General George S. Patton would sum things up... and then catch holy hell from Ike. He sure had a unique way of expressing his thoughts.

Ghost of General Patton

A Message from the Ghost of General Patton....


To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Maggots, it's time for a little refresher course on exactly why w e Americans occasionally have to fight wars.

See if you can tear yourself away from your "reality" TV and Starbucks for a minute, pull your head out of your flabby ass -- and LISTEN UP!!

Abu Ghraib is not "torture" or an "atrocity". This is the kind of thing frat boys, sorority girls, and academy cadets do to newcomers

A little fun at someone else's expense.

Certainly no reason to wring your hands or get your panties in a wad.

Got that?

THIS IS an atrocity!

So Was This!!!


Islam a peaceful religion???

My Ass!

Millions of these sons-of-bitches are plotting, as we speak, to destroy our country and our way of life any way they can.

Some of them are here among us now.

They don't want to convert you and don't want to rule you. You are a vile infestation of Allah's paradise. They don't give a shit how "progressive" you are, how peace-loving you are, or how much you sympathize with their cause.

They want your ass dead , and they think it is God's will for them to do it.

Some think if we give them a hug or listen to them, then they'll like us... and if you agree? Then you are a pathetic dumb ass!

If they manage to get their hands on a nuke, chemical agents, or even some anthrax -- you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

How many more Americans must be beheaded ??

You've fallen asleep AGAIN, maggots!

And you may not get another chance !


and pass this on to any and every person you give a damn about.. if you ever gave a damn about anything


Do you have enough guts to forward this email.. The truth shall set you free!!

George S. Patton

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you,

Jesus Christ and the American Soldier

One died for your soul;

the other for your freedom.
