This is an email I received today.  I have tried to find the video for Sept. 7, 2008 but with no luck.  I thought someone out there would have better luck at finding it.  I need to know if Obama really said this.





From Sunday's televised "Meet the Press" Senator Obama

was asked about his

stance on the American Flag...


Obama Explains National Anthem Stance

  Sun, 07 Sept.  2008 11:48:04 EST

  General Bill Ginn USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

  The General also stated to the Senator that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171... During

rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.  At the very least, "Stand and Face It."

  Senator Obama, live on Sunday, states, "As I've said

about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides," Obama said.  "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message.  You know, the bombs bursting in air and all.  It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose.  I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing.'

If that were our anthem, then I might salute it.

  "We should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.

It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren.  If we as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam, whereas peace prevails.  Perhaps a state or period of mutual concord between our governments.  When I become President, I will seek a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts.  We as a Nation have placed upon the nations of Islam an unfair injustice.  

My wife disrespects the flag for many personal reasons. Together, she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years ago.  She has her views and I have mine".

  "Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred.  I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path of hope.  My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America ."


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right.  This

could possibly be our

next President.


I, for one, am speechless.

This is a matter of opinion and opinions are like
(well you know) everybody has one.
My personal opinion? I agree.

If after reading this email you disagree,
Please, no need to reply back to me.
Your opinion is yours and that's fine, just delete it.


A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that  America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.

Pause a moment, reflect back.

These events are actual events from history..

They really happened!!!

Do you remember?

1. 1968 Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male extremist.

2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim male extremists.

3. In 1979, the   US embassy in  Iran was taken over by Muslim male extremists.

4. During the 1980's a number of Americans were kidnapped in  Lebanon by Muslim male extremists.

5. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in  Beirut was blown up by Muslim male extremists.

6. In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim male extremists.

7. In 1985 TWA flight 847 was hijacked at   Athens , and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim male extremists.

8. In 1988 , Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim male extremists.

9. In 1993 the  World   Trade  Center was bombed the first time by Muslim male extremists.

10. In 1998, the   US embassies in  Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim male extremists.

11. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim male extremists.

12. In 2002 the   United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim male extremists.

13. In 2002 reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and murdered by-- you guessed it-- Muslim male extremists.

No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people... Absolutely No Profiling!

They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss,  but leave Muslim Males alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

According to The Book of Revelations:

The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, he will destroy everything.

And Now:

For the award winning Act of Stupidity Of all times the People of America want to elect, to the most Powerful position on the face of the Planet -- The Presidency of the United states of America .. A Male of Muslim descent who is the most extremely liberal Senator in Congress (in other words an extremist) and in his 40s.

Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason ???

I'm sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the 'unknown' candidate Obama...

Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves -- if they have any such sense.

As the writer of the award winning story 'Forrest Gump' so aptly put it,

'Stupid Is As Stupid Does'
