Subj: A Nun Speaks About America (S289, DU)
From: drribeiro on 8/12/2002
A Nun speaks up
I think everyone on this planet
needs to read this. This
was sent by a 78 yr. old former nun. The thoughts are pure
and we all understand the point...
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! There
are a few things that those who
have recently come to our country, and apparently some
native Americans, need to understand.
First of all, it is not our responsibility
try not to offend you in any way. This idea of America
being a multicultural community has served only to dilute
our sovereignty and our national identity.
As Americans, we have our own
culture, our own society,
our own language, and our own lifestyle. This culture,
called the "American Way" has been developed over centuries
of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and
women who have sought freedom.
Our forefathers fought, bled,
and died at places such as
Bunker Hill, Antietam, San Juan, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea,
We speak English, not Spanish,
Arabic, Chinese, Japanese,
Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to
become part of our society -, learn our language!"
"In God We Trust" is our national
motto. This is not some
off-the-wall,Christian, Right Wing, political slogan -- it
is our national motto.
It is engraved in stone in the
House of Representatives in
our Capitol and it is printed on our currency. We adopted
this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian
principles, founded this nation and this is clearly
documented throughout our history. If it is appropriate
for our motto to be inscribed in the halls of our highest
level of Government, then it is certainly appropriate to
display it on the walls of our schools.
God is in our pledge, our National
Anthem, nearly every
patriotic song, and in our founding documents. We honor
His birth, death, and resurrection as holidays, and we
turn to Him in prayer in times of crisis. If God offends
you, then I suggest you consider another part of the
world as your new home, because God is part of our
culture and we are proud to have Him.
We are proud of our heritage
and those who have so
honorably defended our freedoms. We celebrate
Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Flag
Day. We have parades, picnics, and barbecues where we
proudly wave our flag.
As an American, I have the right
to wave my flag, sing
my national anthem, quote my national motto, and cite my
pledge whenever and wherever I choose. If the Stars and
Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you
should seriously consider a move to another part of this
The American culture is our way
of life, our heritage,
and we are proud of it. We are happy with our culture
and have no desire to change, and we really don't care
how you did things where you came from. Like it or not,
this is our country, our land, and our lifestyle.
Our First Amendment gives every
citizen the right to
express his opinion about our government, culture, or
society, and we will allow you every opportunity to do so.
But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping
about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our
way of life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one
other great American freedom: THE RIGHT TO LEAVE!
Another thing: To those who do
complain about the usage
of words like 'God' and 'American' and speaking the
language of our great nation, TRY GOING TO ANOTHER
COUNTRY AND SPEAK AGAINST WHAT YOU DON'T LIKE. YOU WILL
MORE THAN LIKELY END UP JAILED OR EVEN KILLED.
In America, you take your right
to complain for granted.
The more patriotism that is removed from where our
children are taught, the less our children will learn
about what it is to be an American and our nation's spirit
will slowly be killed. Keep patriotism alive!
If you agree, pass this onto other Americans!!
Subj: Root Out Terrorists! (S278, DU)
From: gowest42 on 5/25/2002
The President of the United States,
George W. Bush, has
asked that all Americans and Canadians unite together in
a common cause to root out terrorists hiding in our community.
Since the Taliban cannot stand
nudity and consider it a sin
to see a naked woman that is not one's wife, on Saturday
afternoon at 2:00 p.m. EST, all North American women are
asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help
weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block
for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.
All men should position themselves
in lawn chairs in front
of your house to prove that you think it's OK to see other
women nude. (Since the Taliban does not approve of alcohol,
a cold six-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-
Names and addresses of non-participants
should be sent to
CIA Headquarters, Langley, Virginia. The United States of
America appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists
and applauds your efforts.
Please by all means, send this
to your fellow Patriots to
ensure 100% participation.

Subj: Oliver North Video (S249, DU)
From: ICohen on 11/9/2001
Remember when? Most vets
supported Col North but our
government made fun of him and made him out to be another
crazy Marine. Not what do they say?
From a student.
I was at a UNC lecture the other day where they played a
video of Oliver North during the Iran-Contra deals during
the Reagan Administration. I was only 14 back then but
was surprised by this particular clip. There was Olie in
front of God and Country getting the third degree. But
what he said stunned me. He was being drilled by some
senator I didn't recognize who asked him, "Did you not
recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security
Oliver replied, "Yes I did, Sir."
The senator continued,
trying to get a laugh out of the audience, "Isn't this
just a little excessive?" "No sir," continued Oliver.
"No. And why not?" "Because the
life of my family and I
"Threatened? By who." "By a terrorist, sir."
"Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?"
"His name is Osama bin Laden."
At this point the senator
tried to repeat the name, but couldn't pronounce it. A
couple of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator
"Why are you so afraid of this man?"
"Because sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of."
"And what do you recommend we do about him?"
"If it were me I would recommend
an assassin team be formed
to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth."
The senator disagreed with this approach and that was all
they showed of the clip. It's scary when you think 15
years ago the government was aware of bin Laden and his
potential threat to the security of the world.
I guess like all great tyrants
they start small but if left
untended spread like the virus they truly are.

Subj: A Bill Of No Rights (S233b, DU)
From: agrief on 7/13/2001
The following has apparently
been attributed to State
Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA.
"We, the sensible people of the
United States, in an
attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance
of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe,
promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of
debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-
grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and
establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally
whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other, bed-wetters.
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that a whole lot
of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so
dim that they require a Bill of No Rights".
ARTICLE I: You do not have the
right to a new car, big
screen TV or any other form of wealth. More power to you
if you can legally acquire them, but no one is
guaranteeing you anything.
ARTICLE II: You do not have the
right to never be offended.
This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom
for everyone - not just you! You may leave the room, turn
channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world
is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE III: You do not have
the right to be free from
harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be
more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make
you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
ARTICLE IV: You do not have the
right to free food and
housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be
found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are
quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after
generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve
nothing more than the creation of another generation of
professional couch potatoes.
ARTICLE V: You do not have the
right to free health care.
That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing,
we're just not interested in public health care.
ARTICLE VI: You do not have the
right to physically harm
other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim,
or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us
want to see you fry in the electric chair.
ARTICLE VII: You do not have
the right to the possessions
of others. If you rob, cheat or coerce away the goods or
services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest
of us get together and lock you away in a place where you
still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a
life of leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: You don't have
the right to demand that our
children risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your
aching conscience. We hate oppressive governments and
won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if
you'd like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire
world and do not want to spend so much of our time battling
each and every little tyrant with a military uniform and a
ARTICLE IX: You don't have the
right to a job. All of us
sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along
in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the
opportunities of education and vocational training laid
before you to make yourself useful.
ARTICLE X: You do not have the
right to happiness. Being
an American means that you have the right to PURSUE
happiness - which by the way, is a lot easier if you are
unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created
by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights."
If you agree, share this with
a friend. No, you don't
have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don't.
I just think it is about time common sense is allowed to
flourish - call it the age of reason revisited.
The Bill of No Rights was written
by Lewis Napper in 2000
and not by Mitchell Kaye as verified by Snopes.com at
