For most of the Americans who are old enough to well remember 9/11, which means most of us because it’s only been less than eleven years, we know the kind of pain, sadness and especially anger that we felt after those planes crashed into buildings and killed so many Americans. We also know the exhilaration we felt when we discovered that a Navy SEAL team took Osama bin Laden out.
Osama bin Laden’s death was one of those rare moments that we were all Americans and it didn’t matter if you were Republican or Democrat, rich or poor, black, white, Hispanic or even Muslim; we were all overjoyed that the man who had masterminded the attacks on 9/11 was dead, except maybe those who agreed with the machinations of an evil man.

“OH MY EFFING GOD, YOU GUYS!” began one of many letters found after the Navy Seals raided Bin Ladin's compound in May of last year. In his letters, Bin Ladin shared concerns about the way senior leadership was handling offshoots of the organization around the globe. “What the hell is going on with our satellite offices?!” he said in one letter, “Can these guys even tell their assholes from the holes in their ground? I swear to god, it's like I hired a bunch of monkeys!”
Interviews with unnamed sources have confirmed Bin Ladin's temper and complaints about his managerial style. “I mean, I'm not going to bullshit you here,” said a former lieutenant of Bin Laden's, speaking anonymously, “he was a difficult man to work for. Al Quaeda is a shame-based organization. It's just criticism after criticism after criticism – 'why didn't you blow up this', 'why didn't you kill that', 'if you were any good at your job you'd be dead by now'.......it's tough to stay motivated.” Read more
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 King James Version
Ever since World War 2, America has been a nation on the defense. The bombing of Pearl Harbor was much like our more recent 9/11 which caused a great deal of grieving in America but also a sense of fear because we know now just how easy it is for another country to take advantage of a weakness in our security and harm us badly. It also threatens our way of life which is very important to all of us. Read more

I’m sure those that read this are first wondering; who is the Devil that I refer to? In a biblical sense, the Devil is the destroyer and seeks the destruction of his enemies. I’m not quite referring to the Devil, or Satan himself but I do refer to those who would cause harm to Barack Obama’s chances to be reelected by standing in the way of anything he does. So at the risk of being a bit overboard, we all know who we’re talking about. Read more
