    This is great!!!!!!! Why doesn't the media let us in this?

    Guess our national leaders didn't expect this,

    You are kidding right?

    The media for the most part panders to the liberal pukes and entitlement segment of society.

    Secular humanism, a global economy, diversity, gun control and creeping socialism are the order of the day.

    There may be a few out there of a different mindset, but not enough to make a difference.

    Lucky, thank you for sharing this moving piece with us. Halfmile, it is our fault for electing such individuals who want to take away our rights and freedoms. Until such time as our legislature understands they are to convey the will of the people and not their own, we will continue to have these struggles. If we don't react at each and every election with our choice of candidate for office, life will continue to go down this road. We are the only ones who can change our future. We the people can elect who we want, not who they want!

    Send a copy of this to Michael Moore who saw this tragedy as a great profiteering opportunity. Ed

    What an eloquent speech! But you are correct, I have only found this information available here. Thank you for sharing it so that, hopefully, we may do the same.

    This is not recent. It was made in 1999 to a small subcommittee.
