The use of your educational web site to preach hate and bigotry is irresponsible and stupid. You are providing a prime example of the ignorance and self-righteousness that has made this great country of America a target for terrorists. If by some miracle God helps you to see the light it will say, "Meeting violence with violence only incites more violence." Not that I'm saying we shouldn't kill a few people first, but that acts and language such as that on this web site is what is likely to draw the world into a Third World War.

Hey Benjamin,

Thanks for writing.

After reading your email over several times; I find it such a load that I'm at a loss to know where to begin.

So I will just assume that you are a prepubescent who owns a spell check and let it go at that.

Thanks again for taking the TIME to write.

Your response is not surprising considering the content on your site. I would go as far as to assume that you rarely think before you act. It's a relatively good thing that you fall in the minority, but unfortunately it is your extremely vocal minority that brings terrorists knocking at our doors.

That's good advice for us all!

Hey wolstencroft, 

Thanks for writing. 

The web site to which you refer belongs to me. 

The Bill of Rights'  Amendment #1 protects my right to say whatever I deem appropriate--especially on my own web site. 

Fortunately, for you & me, and everybody else, the First Amendment does not require that the speech be listened to, nor that it be taken seriously. 

As Jack Parr once said to those who complained about what he said on his TV show, "God made the human wrist to turn at least 180 degrees, which was more than enough to change channels." 

I feel sure there is a mouse/URL equivalent to that wise observation. 

Surely you have better things to do with your TIME than grouse about such inconsequential writings. 

Function: intransitive verb 
Inflected Form(s): groused; grous·ing 
Etymology: origin unknown 
Date: 1887 
      1 : expression of grief, pain, or dissatisfaction 
      2 a : something that is the cause or subject of protest or outcry 
         b : a bodily ailment or disease

Amendment 1 
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

While I appreciate all the nice stirring words and sentiments on your website, it occurs to me that you may perhaps be falling victim to the media frenzy in the wake of the WTC tragedy. I present some ideas to you below- This was forwarded to me by my sister. While I don't agree with all of them, i find it interesting to say the least. If you examine the actual "falling WTC" footage, you will see the building drop straight to the ground- characteristic of 'demo' explosions or implosions rather- designed to bring a building straight down with minimal side spill. Those buildings did not fall >from the impact of two airplanes on the upper floors. No, there were base explosives planted there. Its pretty obvious. And don't forget the economy was lagging horribly and in the news the week before the attack- There are reports that India and Israel, among other nations, knew up to three weeks ahead of time that these events would occur. I can only assume that our 'intelligence' was aware and plotting. Sir, I find that your main mistake is identifying YOUR interests as an AMERICAN with that of YOUR GOVERNMENT and who they serve: TransNational Corporations in the Petrochemical, Military-Industrial, and Pharmeceutical industries. OUR government is using this opportunity to take away our civil rights (the ones we have left- >from our original document- the constitution.) (Echelon and Predator for email snooping for instance...) Mark my words, we are on the path to fascism- if there are any Hitler comparisons to be made, you can forget about Osama Bin Laden (CIA trained nonetheless- thats a fact!) Its our own police state of a government that is toying with fascism. You just watch and see- One day, even you will see the threat to individual GOD GIVEN freedoms the false Government of the US poses.

Fake Terror has been the Road to Dictatorship for thousands of years. It's the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times. 

   Create the enemies you need! 

 A wise philosopher has unveiled the irony of it all: "To restore
 our freedom, we will need to be deprived of it. To recover from
 senseless murder, we will need to perpetrate more of it,"  or so
 says the President. 

   So, Who's Responsible? 

      The Answer is: Who Benefits? 

 You figure it out!
