Heros in the War on Terror

Oregon Army National Guard’s Sgt. Nathaniel “Brad” Lindsey

Sgt. Lindsey and his convoy were attacked when Taliban fighters set up a false checkpoint in Afghanistan on Sept. 9, 2006. The enemies hit the convoy with either a roadside bomb or a rocket-propelled grenade, and then opened up small-arms fire on the vehicles. Lindsey, a gunner who had recently switched from a desk job at a secure base in Kandahar to a job training Afghan soldiers, died in the attack. He had volunteered for deployment to Afghanistan after having already served in Iraq and during Hurricane Katrina to protect an officer he had driven for since June 2004. Lindsey was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medals on Sept. 22, 2006

Coulter: Jihad is fun! Vote Democrat

Posted by thebosun on November 2, 2006

In Ann Coulter’s latest column, that was posted at WorldNetDaily, the take-no-prisoners commentator skewers the “Donkey party” again.

“As millions of lunatic Muslims plot to murder Americans, some Americans – we call them “Soccer Moms” – will cast a vote to save Michael J. Fox this year. In the process, they will put all Americans at risk by voting for a frivolous, dying party.”

“Democrats can’t not be crazy,” Coulter writes. “They will instantly set to work enacting a national gay-marriage law, impeachment hearings, slavery reparations and a series of new federal felonies for abortion clinic protesters.”

Read Ann’s other predictions about what might happen should Democrats take control of Congress now at Coulter’s latest: ‘Jihad is fun! Vote Democrat!
