enigma, ignorant that I am, I had no idea that the SG didn't do print on Wednesdays. But, since you brought that bit of info to my attention at least, you raise a very good point. It can't be a coincidence....nothing Trosi does is coincidental.

"I want to know which Christian organizations are listed on the DHS as extremist" - Chuck

The DHS has called the Family Research Council an extremist group. Since there is no list of "extremist groups" there are no organizations on the list. Worse, the DHS in its training points to all Evangelical Christian groups as possible domestic terrorist groups. So if you believe the Bible is the Word of God, then you are a terrorist as far as the government is concerned and you need to be watched. Maybe that's why they don't have a list. With that kind of thinking, the list would be way too long, about 40% of the churches in the country would be on it. Does that answer your question?

A prisoner released from Guantanamo by President Obama is linked to the terrorist attack against Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi, Libya.

On a related note; I wonder why this letter and the Phil's letter were not included in the print version of today's paper. Was it an accident or was it done purposely to keep the larger number of people from seeing them? Or maybe they want people to stop buying the print version. Oh well, maybe they'll print them tomorrow.

radioactive, Common Core may have come down from the Obama administration, but if the teacher's union opposed it, it wouldn't happen. To be fair, I'm sure that the politics of the teacher's union is far left of most teachers. Unions are basically Communist organizations, who represent that ideology first and the members second. Individual teachers are only to blame in that they do not stand up to the union and just blindly follow their instructions.

Today, we find out from former Defense Secretary Gates that the entire Obama Administration military policy is nothing more than politics with a total distrust of the military leadership.

CMReeder History should be about facts. The problem is our history books are so muddled with opinion the facts are lost.

Sorry that is to Hitler not top Hitler although some on the right thinks that Obama does in fact top Hitler.

Right rewrites history everyday.

This letter fits nicely with Phil's.

More comparisons of Obama top Hitler. The right continues to do their goose step and give a one finger salute to Americans.

I want to know which Christian organizations are listed on the DHS as extremist along with the names of Catholic priests on that list.

Speaking of history repeating itself. Is this Obama or Hitler?

Supporters followed him blindly, and without question

Used political power and coercion to conceal and hide his birth certificates

Rules in direct disregard to the will and wishes of the people.

Hid his real religious identity

Held rallies in outdoor stadiums to excite and inflame the people's passions

Wrote ghost-written autobiographies prior to the start of his run for political office

Originally had a last name that was changed later in life

Don't forget that warning to "conservative-psychics"...who are CONSTANTLY telling everyone what the Future "holds"!!! -Shaman

This coming from someone who calls himself Shaman; a priest or priestess who uses magic for the purpose of curing the sick, divining the hidden, and controlling future events.

"Those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it." So wrote the Irish philosopher Edmund Burke ( 1729 - 1797 ).

I'm reminded of this quote as I read Dr. Charles Krauthammer's excellent book, Things That Matter." - Jon Smith

That quote reminds me, more, of Republicans (like John McCain & the T-Baggers) who are so anxious to go-to-War with Iran.

"We're lucky that, for the time being anyway, we're fighting Iraq and not Iran because Iran is four times as big as Iraq and we're having enough trouble with the little country." - Andy Rooney
