Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Perhaps the scheduled Qur'an burning outside a Florida church was cancelled but that didn't stop an unidentified man from ripping out pages of a Qur'an and burning them on 9/11 near ground zero. Caught on film, this is likely to lead to a reaction from the Islamic world before long. Regardless of your opinion of whether this man should have done what he did, arguing with his statement would be grossly hypocritical.

The New York Daily News quoted him as saying:
"If they can burn American flags, I can burn the Koran," shouted the unidentified man. "America should never be afraid to give their opinion."
Ill-advised or not, the man stated a reality our Constitution guarantees.

The AFP reported that both Mitch McConnell and John McCain publicly denounced the planned Koran burning on September 11th at the Dove World Outreach Center. However, in light of McConnell's vote on an amendment to make burning the United States flag illegal, he appears to have a consistency problem that could use some explaining. At least McCain's statements on the Koran burning are consistent with his vote in 2006. McConnell's screams hypocrisy. Making it even more relevant is the fac that he was the ONLY Republican in office today who voted against the amendment (Lincoln Chafee was the other).

HERE is how the Senate voted. The flag burning amendment went down by one vote - McConnell's was the deciding one.

Contrast that with these statements from McConnell on September 9th regarding the Koran burning. Via the AFP:
Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned that the "stunt" risked endangering US troops in the field, while urging the news media to show restraint amid global outrage at the pastor's plans.

"If this group insists on going forward, I would hope that members of the media will not reward them with what they crave most: News coverage," McConnell said in a statement.
In order to stay consistent, McConnell should have either kept his mouth shut or defended the church's right to carry through with their plans.

Regardless of where you come down on this Koran burning issue, McConnell seems to be more willing to prevent Koran burnings than U.S. flag burnings.

Houston's big AM talk station, KTRH 740 has an afternoon drive talk show host named Michael Berry. He's definitely one of the good guys and a very strong conservative. If you are not inspired after this rant, there's not much anyone can do for you. Berry hits on a common theme by mocking those who say they want to get involved but don't know what to do. His response is not one I've heard before but I really like it. He RIPS them for not being able to figure it out on their own.

He basically rips the Tea Partiers for not being angry enough. Awesome. Scary, but awesome.

The two most prominently corrupt members of congress - who also happen to be Congressional Black Caucus members - are Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Charlie Rangel (D-NY). It appears, courtesy of newly uncovered recordings, the Republicans will have even more ammunition against the Democrats in the run-up to November 2nd. It's been said that the last refuge of scoundrels is the race card. In light of these two corruptocrats, I'm re-thinking that.

The last refuge for Charlie and Maxine may be the poverty card - exploiting the poor under the guise of caring for them. Both are members of the Socialist Caucus so should we expect any less?

There is no one in the media who touts America's founding fathers more than Glenn Beck. Posters of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Samuel Adams seem to follow him everywhere he goes. That leads me to wonder if he will ever dig in to what our founders thought of Islam. To this point, the subject of America's Islamic enemies is rarely broached by Beck. While he admirably fights the Big Government abuses, he rarely broaches the subject.

One of the times he did, albeit briefly, was on March 8, 2010. During this segment of his television show, he seemed to imply that Dutch MP Geert Wilders - a vehement critic of Islam - is a fascist. Though Beck doesn't overtly say that, the implication seems very clear.

Fast forward to September 10, 2010. Courtesy of an excellent article by Laura Rubenfeld at Pajamas Media, we learn quite a bit about what the founding fathers thought of Islam at the time:
Correspondence from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson on July 16, 1814, reveals John Adams’ true feelings about Islam: Adams states that Mohammed is “a military fanatic” who “denies that laws were made for him; he arrogates everything to himself by force of arms.”

John Adams did indeed own a Quran — the copy he owned contained the following in the preface:

This book is a long conference of God, the angels, and Mahomet, which that false prophet very grossly invented; sometimes he introduceth God, who speaketh to him, and teacheth him his law, then an angel, among the prophets, and frequently maketh God to speak in the plural. … Thou wilt wonder that such absurdities have infected the best part of the world, and wilt avouch, that the knowledge of what is contained in this book, will render that law contemptible …
How about Ben Franklin?
In a March 23, 1790, letter to the editor of the Federal Gazette [7], Ben Franklin wrote:

Nor can the Plundering of Infidels be in that sacred Book [the Quran] forbidden, since it is well known from it, that God has given the World, and all that it contains, to his faithful Mussulmen, who are to enjoy it of Right as fast as they conquer it.
John Adams' son may have perhaps the most incendiary writings about Islam.
