According to an ABC report. American high-powered rifle sights manufacturer Trijicon has been apparently inscribing Bible verses passages on their firearms. On every firearm is a series letters and numbers telling the reader where to find it in the bible some of those enscribed are:
2COR4:6 : “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
JN8:12 : “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Trijicon confirmed to ABCNews.com that it adds the biblical codes to the sights sold to the U.S. military. Tom Munson, director of sales and marketing for Trijicon, which is based in Wixom, Michigan, said the inscriptions “have always been there” and said there was nothing wrong or illegal with adding them. Munson said the issue was being raised by a group that is “not Christian.” The company has said the practice began under its founder, Glyn Bindon, a devout Christian from South Africa who was killed in a 2003 plane crash.
Not only does this violate the U.S. military rules that specifically prohibit the proselytizing of any religion in Iraq or Afghanistan and were drawn up in order to prevent criticism that the U.S. was embarked on a religious “Crusade” in its war against al Qaeda and Iraqi insurgents.

“It allows the Mujahedeen, the Taliban, al Qaeda and the insurrectionists and jihadists to claim they’re being shot by Jesus rifles,” he said.
This is pretty obvious so I’m just going to put the videos up one right after the other. This is Barack talking about the surge before and Pelosi talking about it after as well as a host of others commenting. Barack tried to purge his hopefull failure of the surge off his website but thank you Al Gore for inventing the internet. Man-Bear-Pig. Apparently it was the Iranians that made the surge work, not our fighting men and women. I can’t seem to figure out how the “party for the people” could be so wrong about so many things but still be called the “party of the people” when they know nothing about “the people”.
Here’s the truth…
On the view today Nancy Pelosi needed to remind Hasselbeck that she’s talked about this with her before and her annoyance was being worn on her sleeve. After years of saying that the war was lost, that the surge couldn’t and wouldn’t work the Dems. are incapable of admitting they were wrong. I know this is a hard thing to do because I have a hard time doing it with my wife let alone the American people and the world. You’re wrong, just admit it. But then again they are the do nothing congress and why not be the doing nothing I was wrong about the surge too. I hate these bastards.
Over at Hot Air they got old San-Fran-Gran-Nan nailed…
Especially charming is how Pelosi blames her 14 percent approval rating, or whatever hideous depth Congress might now have reached, wholly on her failure to stop the war — a mighty interesting interpretation considering not only is Iraq a distant second to the economy these days among voter priorities but those swing state voters both sides are battling over don’t seem to be in a particular hurry to leave. Ah well. Never let it be said that she lacks message discipline.
The face of the left shines it’s ugly mug towards the camera once again. This is the voice of those who purport to represent you. Do you agree with them? More can be found here at Zombietime as well as photos of the traitors pretending to be interested in what they are goose stepping to. I wish their fathers had held them more as babies. Basically this way of thinking does nothing for their cause. Ignorance is bountiful on the streets of Berkley. ‘
Today’s Summer Solstice showdown featured Move America Forward, the Marines Motorcycle Club, the Patriot Guard Riders and other veterans’ and pro-America groups facing off against their traditional adversaries: World Can’t Wait, Code Pink, the Revolutionary Communist Party, assorted 9/11 Truthers, far-left activists and their fellow travelers.

Girl won Hannah Montana tickets with fake essay
GARLAND, Texas (AP) — An essay that won a 6-year-old girl four tickets to a Hannah Montana concert began with the powerful line: “My daddy died this year in Iraq.” While gripping, it was not true and now the girl may lose her tickets after her mom acknowledged to contest organizers it was all a lie.
The sponsor of the contest was Club Libby Lu, a Chicago-based store that sells clothes, accessories and games intended for young girls.
The saga began Friday with company officials surprising the girl at a Club Libby Lu at a mall in suburban Garland, about 20 miles northeast of Dallas. The girl won a makeover that included a blonde Hannah Montana wig, as well as the grand prize: airfare for four to Albany, N.Y., and four tickets to the sold-out Hannah Montana concert on Jan. 9.
The mother had told company officials that the girl’s father died April 17 in a roadside bombing in Iraq, company spokeswoman Robyn Caulfield said.
“We did the essay and that’s what we did to win,” Priscilla Ceballos, the mother, said in an interview with Dallas TV station KDFW. “We did whatever we could do to win.”
She had identified the soldier as Sgt. Jonathon Menjivar, but the Department of Defense has no record of anyone with that name dying in Iraq. Caulfield said the mother has admitted to the deception.
“We regret that the original intent of the contest, which was to make a little girl’s holiday extra special, has not been realized in the way we anticipated,” said Mary Drolet, the CEO of Club Libby Lu.
Drolet said the company is reviewing the matter, and is considering taking away the girl’s tickets.

House Speaker (D) San Fran Gran Nancy Pelosi disgraced herself, the Democratic Party which she represents and the job she was elected to do. In a statement made to the press today she said…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is drawing heat for suggesting her political opponents are fond of the war in Iraq.
“The grassroots are justifiably disappointed and I am too that we could not do something to end this war,” Pelosi said at a press conference today. “The assumption that I made that the Republicans would soon see the light and listen to their constituents was not an accurate one.”
She continued: “They like this war. They want this war to continue. We thought that they shared the view of so many people in our country that we need a new direction in Iraq. To affect that we need redeployment of our troops with a goal of a year to do that. But the Republicans have made it very clear that this is just not George Bush’s war, this is the war of the Republicans in Congress.”
Asked to clarify her use of the word “like,” Pelosi backed off her statement of moments before.
“When I say ‘like,’ I shouldn’t say they ‘like’ the war. They support the war, the course of action that the president is on and they are not questioning in terms of his implementation of the war, the execution of the war.”
For this worthless piece of San Fran crap to stand in front of the American people and pretend to profess that she knows what the American People want is disgusting and quite frankly belittling. She’s completely worthless and if nothing hindering to the American People. Go home and roost you chicken shit Nancy Pelosi. Go back to where it’s actually a good thing to suck, San Fran.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2007 – For those seeking a quick way to show appreciation for the troops’ service far from home this holiday season, look no further than “Giving Thanks,” a new initiative from the Defense Department’s America Supports You program.
Americans can send text messages of thanks and get responses from active-duty troops through the “Giving Thanks” initiative of the Defense Department’s America Supports You program.
America Supports You connects citizens and corporations with military personnel and their families serving at home and abroad.
“This is a simple way to connect our citizens to our soldiers using modern technology,” Allison Barber, deputy assistant secretary of defense for internal communications and public liaison, said of the text messaging program.
The program, which already has received nearly 4,000 messages, officially kicks off at 6 a.m. EST Nov. 17 and concludes at midnight PST Nov. 22. Between those times, people wishing to express gratitude to the troops for their service can text a brief message to 89279. Each text message sent will receive a response from an active-duty service member in return.
Major mobile wireless providers, including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint Nextel, and T-Mobile, will provide access to the Giving Thanks text messaging program.
“We know that thousands of families will be sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner and thinking about loved ones who are far away from home serving their country,” Barber said. “We are counting on other American families to take a moment during their holiday celebration to think of those families and their family members who are serving and say, ‘Thanks.’
C’mon. Give it a shot. It’ll take just a few seconds and you’ll make some troop’s day.
