Flag Day Wrap Up

It was good to see a lot of familiar faces tonight. The county GOP party sold out the dinner for the first time in its history. It's not a bad haul....1100 people times $250 per head....that's about $275,000 by my math that the party added to its coffers plus the money from the corporate sponsors who were there. They were all there to hear Rudy Giuliani speak, most of them. I was there because it's a fun event. I was reminded when I pulled into the Hyatt parking lot why Rudy Giuliani is going to have a hard time winning the GOP nomination, social issues. There were lots of pro life protesters outside holding up signs of aborted fetuses and other stuff. There were also a bunch of Tom Tancredo supporters outside waving American flags and holding up signs saying "no amnesty". I gave them the thumbs up as I drove by.

Speaking of illegal immigration, Rudy must be reading the polls and following the news about the Senate's failure to pass an amnesty bill because he spent about half the time during his speech talking about the issue...a "Johnny come lately" to the issue if you will. He thinks he will be able to waltz in as President, pass a National ID card bill, build the wall, cut down on illegal immigration by 90% and then without him saying it(but definately implied), give all the illegal aliens in our country amnesty. Why do we need a national ID card Rudy? That might come in handy to confiscate guns like he is proud of...circa his days as NYC mayor. Again, we just need to enforce current laws Mr. Mayor. He also talked a lot about the so called war on terror. He kept uttering the lie that "they(jihadists) hate us because of our freedoms. No Rudy, they hate us because we are over there occupying their land just as we would hate the Chinese or any other foreigners who invaded and occupied our country if that ever were to happen...oh yeah it is happening, Mexico, duh. I would characterize the response from our crowd as respectful applause, but he didn't set the audience on fire exactly. Thank you though Mr. Mayor for showing up. I think he would be a good Cabinet secretary like Secretary of State or something, but not President.

    Sorry to correct you, but they hate us because we are infidels. The Koran directs "true believers" to force infidels to either convert to Islam, become a dhimmi, or die.

    Read the Koran. It has nothing to do with "occupying their lands."

    Wrong anonymous!

    The conversion was intended only for population present within the Mohamed's territory. That includes occupiers too.

    It was not intended world wide!
