    I checked snoops and it is true, the President has authorized the post office to produce a stamp to honor the Muslim holiday. Don,t buy any of these stamps, I can't beleive this is going on, what a slap in the face to the United States.
    I am so pissed off, I can't beleive this is going to happen, pass this on to all your friends.

    What is the picture of, a man with a bomb around his belt going into a crowded area. The religion of peace, pieces of human flesh flying around.

    I'm calling bullsh!t on your post. These stamps have little if anything, to do with socialist president Obambi.

    According to the USPS, these stamps were first issued less than a month before the cowardly attacks of Sept. 1, 2001. They were reissued in 2002, 2006, 2007, and again in 2008.

    Kindly direct your ire at any of the MANY legitimate atrocities actually associated with Obambi.

    Obama didn't come out with the stamps. He is the guy letting the terrorists out of our prisons. We are so much safer now with Hussein in charge.

    Releasing incarcerated terrorists from Gitmo is but one of many examples of the things thoughtful citizens should be raising h@ll about. The extention of constitutional rights to foreign murderers from foreign battlefields is another. Putting them on trial in U.S. courts is a third.

    Foreign terrorists have no legal, ethical, or moral standing for Constitutional protections - none. In the event a judicial process is appropriate, military courts (as used in prior wars) would be the applicable venue.

    This isn't about shop lifting. They didn't buglarize an apartment, steal a car or commit arson. They were captured while doing their best to kill members of our military and indiginous civilians. Experience has shown that when released, they promptly return to killing. It doesn't take much thought process to conclude they should be detained as the enemy combatants they are and held in perpetuity, if necessary.

    In the meantime, Gitmo is a perfect place for them. However, since communist Cuba with its government run universal medical system is such a darling of the libs, maybe we should cut a hole in the fence and push the murdering scum thru to Cuba's side.

    PS: If I were one of Obambi's toadies, I might suggest engaging in a dialog with the bad guys as a viable solution. That's sure been a winning stategy with North Korea, Iran and various other international rotters - not.

    The tone of my response to your original post was unnecessarily harsh. Please accept my sincere apology.

    It's a damned shame that all people of the Muslim faith have to be lumped into one group because of their faith. Roscoe Parker has been my shooting buddy for about 40 or more years, and he has been closer than a brother. I also have a Jordanian Muslim friend that I consider in the same class as Roscoe. Roscoe can vouch for this statement, as both have been by my side through all my hospital stays here in Maryland and Washington, D.C. There is nothing under the sun that either one would not do for me if they could. I even call my Muslim friends son, my adopted son, as I could not be more proud of him than my own son. Just like in farming, you have to separate the chaff from the wheat, and that is what you have to do with people throughout your life..................Rick Johnson

    Interesting use of the term ""educated class".






    Op-Ed Columnist
    The Tea Party Teens

    By DAVID BROOKS
    Published: January 4, 2010
    The United States opens this decade in a sour mood. First, Americans are anxious about the future. Sixty-one percent of Americans believe the country is in decline, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey. Only 27 percent feel confident that their children’s generation will be better off than they are.




    Second, Americans have lost faith in their institutions. During the great moments of social reform, at least 60 percent of Americans trusted government to do the right thing most of the time. Now, only a quarter have that kind of trust.

    The country is evenly divided about President Obama, but state governments are in disrepute and confidence in Congress is at withering lows. As Frank Newport of the Gallup organization noted in his year-end wrap-up, “Americans have less faith in their elected representatives than ever before.”

    Third, the new administration has not galvanized a popular majority. In almost every sphere of public opinion, Americans are moving away from the administration, not toward it. The Ipsos/McClatchy organizations have been asking voters which party can do the best job of handling a range of 13 different issues. During the first year of the Obama administration, the Republicans gained ground on all 13.

    The public is not only shifting from left to right. Every single idea associated with the educated class has grown more unpopular over the past year.

    The educated class believes in global warming, so public skepticism about global warming is on the rise. The educated class supports abortion rights, so public opinion is shifting against them. The educated class supports gun control, so opposition to gun control is mounting.

    The story is the same in foreign affairs. The educated class is internationalist, so isolationist sentiment is now at an all-time high, according to a Pew Research Center survey. The educated class believes in multilateral action, so the number of Americans who believe we should “go our own way” has risen sharply.

    A year ago, the Obama supporters were the passionate ones. Now the tea party brigades have all the intensity.

    The tea party movement is a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against. They are against the concentrated power of the educated class. They believe big government, big business, big media and the affluent professionals are merging to form self-serving oligarchy — with bloated government, unsustainable deficits, high taxes and intrusive regulation.

    The tea party movement is mostly famous for its flamboyant fringe. But it is now more popular than either major party. According to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 41 percent of Americans have a positive view of the tea party movement. Only 35 percent of Americans have a positive view of the Democrats and only 28 percent have a positive view of the Republican Party.

    The movement is especially popular among independents. The Rasmussen organization asked independent voters whom they would support in a generic election between a Democrat, a Republican and a tea party candidate. The tea party candidate won, with 33 percent of independents. Undecided came in second with 30 percent. The Democrats came in third with 25 percent and the Republicans fourth with 12 percent.

    Over the course of this year, the tea party movement will probably be transformed. Right now, it is an amateurish movement with mediocre leadership. But several bright and polished politicians, like Marco Rubio of Florida and Gary Johnson of New Mexico, are unofficially competing to become its de facto leader. If they succeed, their movement is likely to outgrow its crude beginnings and become a major force in American politics. After all, it represents arguments that are deeply rooted in American history.

    The Obama administration is premised on the conviction that pragmatic federal leaders with professional expertise should have the power to implement programs to solve the country’s problems. Many Americans do not have faith in that sort of centralized expertise or in the political class generally.

    Moreover, the tea party movement has passion. Think back on the recent decades of American history — the way the hippies defined the 1960s; the feminists, the 1970s; the Christian conservatives, the 1980s. American history is often driven by passionate outsiders who force themselves into the center of American life.

    In the near term, the tea party tendency will dominate the Republican Party. It could be the ruin of the party, pulling it in an angry direction that suburban voters will not tolerate. But don’t underestimate the deep reservoirs of public disgust. If there is a double-dip recession, a long period of stagnation, a fiscal crisis, a terrorist attack or some other major scandal or event, the country could demand total change, creating a vacuum that only the tea party movement and its inheritors would be in a position to fill.

    Personally, I’m not a fan of this movement. But I can certainly see its potential to shape the coming decade
