Troops: Skipping Christian Concert Got Us Punished

Right here in our own back yard, it appears that someone in the military is practicing religious oppression.  According to the Huffington Post:

RICHMOND, Va. — The Army said Friday it was investigating a claim that dozens of soldiers who refused to attend a Christian band’s concert at a Virginia military base were banished to their barracks and told to clean them up.

Fort Eustis spokesman Rick Haverinen told The Associated Press he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the investigation. At the Pentagon, Army spokesman Col. Thomas Collins said the military shouldn’t impose religious views on soldiers.

“If something like that were to have happened, it would be contrary to Army policy,” Collins said.

Pvt. Anthony Smith said he and other soldiers felt pressured to attend the May concert while stationed at the Newport News base, home of the Army’s Transportation Corps.

“My whole issue was I don’t need to be preached at,” Smith said in a phone interview from Phoenix, where he is stationed with the National Guard. “That’s not what I signed up for.”

“Christian” Minister Endangers Americans around the World

The Reverend Terry Jones misses the point. In trying to destroy his enemy, he becomes like his enemy. What has he accomplished? His reckless advocacy of a book burning day endangers Americans around the world and accomplishes nothing other than serving as a recruitment tool to those who would do us harm.

Rick Sanchez’s interview with Jones proves that Jones is little better than Westover Baptist activists with their hate-mongering. Apparently Jones is trying to ‘grow’ his church. Is he going to take responsibility when one of his parishioners commits some vile act, all in the name of God?

SPLC Posts Top Ten Conspiracy Theories

There is no end to conspiracy theories.  Conspiracy theories are a big part of Americana.  However, most are urban legends and few have been proven, if any.  From the Lincoln assassination conspiracy theory to the Roswell Cover-up to the moonlanding being a hoax by NBC, some Americans are convinced that their government is up to something sneaky and un-American.

Southern Poverty Law Center has listed the top 10 current conspiracy theories.



01 Chemtrails
02 Martial Law

03 FEMA Concentration Camps

04 Foreign Troops on U.S. Soil

05 ‘Door-to-Door’ Gun Confiscations

06 9/11 as Government Plot

07 Population Control


09 The Federal Reserve Conspiracy

10 The North American Union



My favorite one isn’t on the list. I like the one that exposes the government hiding UFO information from us since Roswell. I believe that one. These others are strange. I have heard of about half of them. The rest are tin foil hat theories, with accompanying Xfile music.

The explanations are given. It is far too long to provide exerpts. Plus I wouldn’t want to leave out anything.

Do you believe any of this? How far fetched is some of it? Sell us on a theory.

Sorry, sound effects weren’t working.
