Let us restore

American patriotism

I’m a patriot because of what my country used to be. But my country has left me. The United States of America is very different today than only two or three decades past. We’ve become a collective conglomerate of people, so very many of which don’t speak our language and they have come here to live in America but want to continue the culture and strange religious order of the country from which they came.

We’ve also passed laws in favor of a select few citizens who are abnormal; and a high percentage of people detest the execution of a violent murderer and at the same time lecture in favor of killing unborn babies by the tens of thousands.

We’ve been propagandized to be politically correct, giving up the reality of true honesty and the strength of fact. Our faith in God is constantly under pressure to be put asunder. And freedom of speech is deemed improper if it fails to comply with zealots that wish to press their thinking as the only freedom of speech.

College students are becoming products of a majority of professors who disavow America and epitomize socialism, deeming it a “one-size-fits-all” social order. And if a student comprehends that individual motivation and self betterment is vital in achieving financial success, he is considered to have a disease.

Lord, help America! Bring back belief in our Constitution and give the rite of common sense another opportunity. Help us to restore deep American patriotism.

Islam is violent

and intolerant

The Kansas City Syrian refugee al-Abboud says “I am Muslim.” Those who have traveled in the Middle East expect a Kansas City Syrian refugee to say “Very blessed to be here.” The living conditions of the average U.S. citizen is far and above of that in the Middle East.

What should concern every American (Christian and Jew) is Ahmad al-Abboud stating “I am Muslim.” Islam 10 Commandments, number 7 states: “Thou shall not kill, except.”

Verses from Quran states:

Sahih al-Bukhari (52:220)... I have been made victorious with terror.

Tafsir al-Tabari (7:97)... Slain an innocent Jew for merely for being non-Muslim.

Tafsir al-Tabari (9:69)… Killing unbelievers is a small matter to us.

President Obama wants to increase the number of Syrian refugees to come to the U.S. I do not want Kansas City to become a San Bernardino, Paris or Brussels; I want people to follow the Bible, not the Quran.

Fourth grade

student in N.C.

asks for help

Hello! I am a fourth grade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we do state reports and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Missouri as I work on my on report.

Most of the information that we get for our reports will be from books and websites. We also like to get information from people who live in the state, too. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that would be useful.

You can mail items to Ashley McGlee, Mr. McConaughy’s Class, Charlotte Latin School, 9502 Providence Road, Charlotte, N.C. 28277.
