There Are Givers, and There Are Takers

Cross-posted at American Daughter Article © 2005 Allan Erickson America is in a fight for her life, both at home, and abroad. Abroad, as we wage a righteous fight against terrorism on behalf of all people, we also fight at home against people who cannot see the larger picture because they are blinded by self-interest. They don't understand the sacred dimension of sacrifice because for them, the only thing sacred is Leftist rebellion, a self-centered preoccupation with convenience and comfort. American "insurgents" now join our enemies overseas, essentially calling us the Great Satan, insisting America is not worth fighting for,... ... more

Comments by Winston Churchill

Cross-posted at American Daughter: Here are Winston Churchill's comments on militant Islam of the 1890's -- a warning for the 21st century -- taken from a book that Churchill authored: "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!

Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
