Dear Mr. Giles, I used to be one of your defenders when you were attacked by what I considered religious bigots because you did not speak or write like your average minister. However, having just read your column above I realize that in fact you are a religious bigot and a twit yourself. The scurrilous attack against the twin sisters for their views about the commercials by the Carl's Jr.fast food franchise goes beyond good taste. Of course that is only the opinion of a heterosexual American who likes pretty girls as much as the next guy. Please remember that one of the first "pretty girl commercial from Carl's Jr. featured Paris Hilton whose claim to fame was a homemade porno video widely shown on the internet. Your attack against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church is beyond ludicrous and bordering on the insane. It truly shows us the irrelevance of your opinions since they are clearly based on a great lack of knowledge on your part. I'm sure that your closest Mormon church would be happy to invite you to one of their services and you would be welcomed politely despite your claims to some secret knowledge of that church denomination. In closing, I must say that you have not only become a disappointment to me personally but I'm sure to many other people for this particular column. Sincerely yours, Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
Geraldo Rivera has finally come out of his pretentious world where he pretends not to be a progressive liberal any longer. He is the perfect example of Fox News hiring liberals to balance their viewpoints. His comments are not only absurd but truly border on lunacy. There isn't one conservative supporter of the 2nd Amendment or of the NRA that doesn't find the instructor to have been negligible in his own death. It is also true that the father and any responsible adult who did not object to this "instruction" taking place with a 9 year old of either gender. No 9 year old or for that matter 14 year old should ever be handed a semi or fully automatic weapon. This was simply a failure of common sense by the instructor and family members present. It was also a failure of any common sense by Mr. Rivera, he truly showed his bias and ignorance once again. In my humble opinion he has always been a sensation seeking twit and should have been retired from the tv screens everywhere long ago. This incident is of course only one of many where his arrogant and irrelevant behavior has been given an opportunity to be seen and heard and he should be on MSNBC along with all the other nitwits.

I'm truly sorry to have to state the obvious, these terrorists have morphed into an army that not only covets their neighbors lands but truly believes it can conquer the world in the name of their religion. Mr. Buchanan, you are simply wrong in your belief that these people will be satisfied by anything less than the destruction of Israel and the United States of America. To them we are the only people with the power to stop them from slaughtering all Christianity and Judaism. I say this as a german born Immigrant who served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam era and I knew that communism had to be stopped. Thankfully ronald Reagan accomplished that feat, but sadly our present administration fosters weakness for our nation. There was a time in recent history when you understood that, but sadly age seems to have diminished your ability to see the truth in the world. WW I, WWII and even to a point, Korea and Vietnam were successful in stopping the then scourge upon the earth, communism and yet you don't see the danger facing us now.

It is good to see someone in the media that actually understands history and war. I was born in East germany and became a U.S. citizen in 1967. I joined the U.S. Marine Corps because I understood the meaning of freedom, something that American born citizens seem to have trouble understanding, never having lived without it. I hear the excuses of not having been able to negotiate a "Status of Forces Agreement." Did President Truman negotiate a "Status of Forces Agreement" with germany or Japan at the end of WWII? What nonsense of an excuse for allowing Iraq and Afghanistan to fall back into the dark ages and continue to be a threat to the rest of the world. Mr. President, please took a look at history and learn from it. You are not the all knowing and most powerful being. You "serve" at the pleasure of the citizens of this nation, please remember that simple fact. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com

Re: Paolo3, I can only ask, what are you smoking? While much argument can be made over whether George Bush was a good or bad president, but the comparison to Obama is truly ludicrous. At least Bush was able to understand that we had enemies in the Middle East and remembered that Israel is our only and staunch allie in that part of the world.

Re: william 4830, Very good analogy. The only difference was that Nero knew he was ignoring the problem. Obama isn't even aware of there being one. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
As I read the many comments by people trying to argue against the premise of a strong U.S> Military that can and should be used to instill the fear of God into these terrorist nations. And for those of you that want to argue that these terrorist nations have many innocent citizens, please allow me to remind you that the Nazi era in germany and 1940's Japan was not populated by innocents. Yes, some were, but their citizens were supportive of those maniac regimes. Evil can only exist when good men do nothing. Mr. Schlichter's column is right on point and should be read by everyone. For those of you who find fault with his opinions, please offer an alternative, that is assuming you have any understanding of the evil times we live in. I was born in East Germany and grew up in the post Nazi era under Communism, the difference was minor. My family had to escape to the west in order to have even a small amount of freedom. I served in the U.S. Marine Corps, gladly, because I knew that despite the manner in which the Vietnam War was run, I at least understood what the Vietnamese would suffer if the Communist won. Just look at the death that came to their citizens after Vietnam fell. Yes, you can point to a fairly good economy thew compared to the 60's, but that is because even the Vietnamese government can see that total communism has failed and they were smart enough to adopt a freer economy. Totalitarianism always fails and combined with fanatical religious beliefs it will not only fail but kill millions. Strenght is the only thing these fanatics understand and American strength is not the same as what these fanatics believe in. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
Re: Fidel Castro Denounces 'Fascist' Israel’s 'Genocide' of Palestinians The sentence at the end of your article makes no sense whatsoever. "Political power does interest me in the least. I will never assume such power.” (Fidel Castro, April 1959.) I believe that the author meant to quote Castro correctly, but the words "power does interest me in the least..." should have been "doesn't. It seems that your publication no longer bothers with editors or any sort of proofreading. I realize that newspapers around the country no longer seem to care whether the English language is grammatically correct and I don't know whether to blame the schools, including colleges. They no longer seem to teach English grammar, but the sheer laziness of so called journalist is just unacceptable. Is there any wonder that newspapers and magazines are dying. does no one understand the concept of spell and grammar check? By the way, this is not the first time I've written to you about this problem, but the courtesy of a response is also non existent. Shame on the laziness that is so evident.

Dear Miss Coulter, It's not often that I am even in slight disagreement with you, but this column was just a little rough on the volunteers that go to the pits of the earth. While everything you wrote in your usual superb sarcasm and dare I say even a little cynicism, there is a need to try and bring civility and some modern medicine to the darkest parts of the world. It is A Christian duty to help the most desperate of this world. There is no question that you are correct that some may do this type of volunteer work out of reasons other than just be willing to share their knowledge with others in those parts of the world, it is also true that the numbers that volunteer there are indeed few. Yes, there is no doubt that we have plenty of needy people here in the U.S., and more should be done to help them. On the other hand, just like the governments of those "other" countries are the root cause of their problems, so is it true right here in the U.S. and it's getting worse daily because of our incompetent, so called leadership. We had and despite the best efforts of this administration still have the best health care system in the world at least for now. Do you honestly believe that we can't spare a couple hundred medical professionals? as you have often said, we live in a free country and therefore this doctor and nurse had the right to fulfill whatever need they saw wherever they saw that need. Keep up the good work Ann, but please let this one go. Respectfully yours, Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
