    Sometimes, the level of courage and character attained by our military is astonishing to me.
    Sometimes, I think they're the only guys who care about the Constitution they've sworn to uphold.

    Nice find, F_B.

    No matter which way the urling went, I'm glad that this guy was afforded a full-throated legal defense.
    That is what we're supposed to be fighting for.

    I actually like the timing of this article, and the Supremes' decision. This is absolutely a lesson in America.

    We should always strive to be better than our enemy, despite what our enemy has done to us.

    We should always strive to set a good example to the world, even if the world doesn't want to follow our example.

    Fenian - nice find. What a great story of courage given the fact that this weekend we as a country celebrate our own independance.

    thank you for linking.

    these stories always having a way of renewing my faith in america just when you think all is lost.

    We all should celebrate this small victory for Hammas.   His freedom is ours as well. 

    Thanks again for linking such a meaningful story.

    Feeling fine and dandy Ace - why do you ask?
  7. Boom and I respect each other's patriotism.
    We just disagree on the advisability of electing various of our fellow citizens.
    Happy Fourth, my quote-happy brother!

    Re: An Independence Day Lesson

    This is a nitpick of mine, but I prefer referring to the holiday as Independence Day. Much more meaningful that way.
