Every year around this time, an old email FWD keeps popping up. Same ole, same ole, right? Any one who has seen it before, probably just figgers, yeah, yeah, yeah - and DELETES it.
Well, Pardners - this time it "ain't necessarily so!"
WHY? Cause some hard-headed, dumb Irish Mick like me has had ENOUGH! As G.B. 1 used to say:
"READ MY LIPS!"
You wanna make an omellette? Then ya gotta break some FRICKIN' EGGS! You want to start a new American tradition of Kneeling, Facing East toward MECCA, and praising Allah? That's OK - IF THAT'S WHAT YOU TRULY WANT! After all, we enjoy Freedom of Religion, right?
But if you DON'T - ya betta getcher heads outta yer ASSES and WAKE UP!!!
What's the SCORE? Do you have a CLUE?
Although at this point in my life - AGE 66 - I don't give a RAT'S ASS about ANY ORGANIZED RELIGIONS - lines are being drawn in the SAND - NOT IN IRAQ - BUT HERE IN the good ole U.S. of A. !!!
Christians - YAY! "Turn the other cheek!"
Muslims (Islams) - "Kill the INFIDELS!"
Atheists - "Alas, woe is me, there is no god!"
Agnostics - "DUH? - I DUNNO! Eenie-Meenie-Minee-Mo"
For many years now, Americans have been known abroad as "The Ugly American." Now, using our wonderfully adopted second language, "Muy Stupidos" might be more apropos!
GEE, do I sound just a tad "miffed?" Read on, Mac Duff!
IRONIC !!! This stamp was announced by USPS on August 1st, 2001 and First Day of Issue was September 1st, 2001 - THEN 10 DAYS LATER THE TOWERS WERE DESTROYED !!!
I would strongly suggest that ALL of you go to the link I've included here and READ the entire description. This was a branch of OUR GOVERNMENT, offering a POSITIVE APPEASEMENT to the Muslim world - NOTE that it actually says SEVEN MILLION LIVE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES - and a handfull of fanatics SHIT IN OUR FACES!

This is NOT a new stamp - At the time 9/11/01, the American public did not have a CLUE as to what this stamp represented. I PERSONALLY STOOD AT THE COUNTER AT JOHNS HOPKINS POST OFFICE AND SOLD THEM !!!
People bought them - WHY? - because they were PRETTY & NEW - NO CLUE !!!
Just another perfect example of American IGNORANCE - we did NOT KNOW THEN - and we SHOULD know now, 6 YEARS LATER - BUT WE STILL DON'T, as evidenced by this FWD stating it is NEW !!!
IT IS NOT NEW! WAKE UP AMERICANS! READ! GET INFORMED! WATCH DOCUMENTARY FILMS! LEARN!
Sadly, some of you will just delete this, as more of Tom's CRAP. Some will READ and not believe. Some will read and believe, but be too damned APATHETIC to take a stanch.
Sometimes the handwriting is right up there on the WALL - (IN THIS CASE GOLD SCRIPT IN ARABIC ) - but the reaction is: "GEE, AIN'T THAT PRETTY?" DUH!
If I woke you up, I apologize - go back to sleep!
If I offended you - as they used to say in the Russian Army --- "TOUGH-GIE SHITZ-GIE" !!!
