The Irish wonder why we are even voting

Tony sends this thought from across the pond.


An email from Ireland to the brethren in the States...a point to ponder despite your political affiliation:


'We, in Ireland , can't figure out why people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States .


On one side, you have a pants wearing lawyer, married to a lawyer who can't keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer who goes to the wrong church who is married to yet another lawyer who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run.


Now...On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate Mc terminology, married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship.


What in Lords name are ye lads thinking over there in the colonies??

Miss Ladybug remembers Lt.  West's birthday.

Reader Terri sends this letter that seems to capture the sentiments quite well after the jump


 Letter       from one 'Angry Woman'


I       don't know who wrote it but sheshould have signed it. Some powerful       words. This woman should run for president.


Written       by a housewife from New Jersey       and sounds like it! This is one ticked off lady.




'Are       we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by       Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001?


Were       people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered       that day, in downtown Manhattan , across       the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?




Did       nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or       crushing death that day, or didn't they?




And       I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was 'desecrated'       when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet?...Well, I       don't. I don't care at all.




I'll       start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents       for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.




I'll       care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring       about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi       Arabia




I'll       care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for chopping off Nick       Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.




I'll       care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Iraq come       out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by       hiding in mosques.




I'll       care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of       nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide .




I'll       care when the American media stops pretending that their First       Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law       instead of the United         States Constitution's Bill of Rights.




In       the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an       Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.




When       I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been       humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest assured: I       don't care.




When       I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to       move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I       don't care.




When       I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed       'special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that       his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your       heart of hearts: I don't care.




And       oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and       other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and-you guessed it-I don't       care!!




If you agree with       this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later,       it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!




If       you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you       choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities       committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I       add:




'Some       people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in       the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem' -- Ronald       Reagan




I       have another quote that I would like to add AND.......I hope you forward       all this.




'If       we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation       gone under' Also by.. Ronald Reagan




One       last thought for the day:




In       case we find ourselves starting to believe all the Anti-American       sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister       Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his       Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said: 'A simple       way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in.. And how       many want out.'




Only       two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G I.




One       died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
