This is the accompanying editorial for my cartoon, written by IowaPresidentialWatch PAC chairman Roger Hughes:
"America owns 9-11", editorial by Roger Wm. Hughes
The actions of some of the 9-11 family members makes me want my contribution back. We Americans made these individuals millionaires. I recognize that there is no amount of money that can indemnify someone for the loss of a loved one. However, our courts do it every day.
What is disheartening about these families calling Bushs ads apprehensible is that they think they own this tragedy. They dont. Neither does the greedy Firemans Union.
This tragedy has only one other close equivalency in our history. That similar tragic moment was the unprovoked attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor. The victims of Ground-Zero are like the soldiers and sailors of Pear Harbor. They are both linked to the inevitable fate of other nations and philosophy trying to prevail over others for their own benefit.
The attackers of 9-11 hate us because of who and what we are. To satisfy them we must stone Madonna and all in our society like her and make our women cover themselves from head-to-foot.
George Bush is right to use footage of 9-11 in his campaign commercials. This President is fighting the War on Terrorism, just as Franklin D. Roosevelt used scenes and references to Pearl Harbor in his campaign and rallying of America into World War II.
While I have many differences with the Democratic presumptive nominee for President, Sen. John Kerry, none are more pronounced than his confusing votes and explanations on the two Iraqi wars. He voted against stopping Saddam Husseins invasion of Kuwait. He voted for invading Iraq, and then said he made a mistake in giving that authority to President Bush.
Senator John Flip-Flop Kerry cannot be trusted with the security of this nation.
Bush is right. He is the steady leader who took us through the Pearl Harbor of our times. He is the one who told the firefighter that "You may not hear me but soon the whole world will hear you." He is the President who turned those words into reality. And now, the terrorists are facing their greatest nightmare -- a free and independent Iraq.
Bush, we God-fearing Americans recognize that you are taking the fight to the terrorists, and we support you. It may be uncomfortable for others to recognize this fact, but they need to be reminded anyway.
Mr. President, keep up the good work.

I agree with you. Right after 911 I too was caught up in the emotion and donated to the families fund. I don't regret it but after reflection I asked myself when the next attack occurs will the same emotional impact be felt? 911 was a unique event in our nation one that for a brief moment brought the country together like I haven't seen in my lifetime. I fully expected the initial sympathy in Europe to quickly recede back to the Anti-Americanism they truly feel but I am really concerned about the short time it took this country to fall back into the apathy we were in on Sept 10, 2001.

You are right on point about this being Union Leadership goons.
This is not the firman who said "kiss my @ss" or the priceless gem of boing Hitlary.
I only pray that the rank and file are able to remember to vote Republican in Nov.

Beautiful artwork. You're right in your assessment. When 9-11 happened I donated far more than I could afford to the families. It really angers me that these people are now out there slamming the man who worked so hard to protect them.

True leadership doesn't have to justified. Its self-evident along with character. In contrast, John F. Kerry has a lot of explaining to do over the next eight months about his absence of leadership on the burning issues of the day and on his questionable character. It'll be fun to watch himself tie himself up in knots along the way!

the Rats would have criticized the Prez no matter what the ads would be like - if he rightly shows 9-11, he's insensitive; if he doesn't, they would say he's embarassed. In their ruthless attempts to hold on to, steal, and regain power (media bias during 2000 exit polls, Gore's attempted stealing of the election, memo-gate, judicial filibuster, revoking states rights in the sodomy hearing, then turning around and invoking states rights on gay marriage, etc...) they have no scruples and arrogantly believe that they can set the tone and the issues.
They are Lost... and would lead us down the path of perdition like lemmings over the cliff.
Keep shining the flashlight on them, brothers

Hi IPWGOP, the following email was sent at 1 this morning, indicating that Attorney Gen'l Ashcroft might be needing miraculous intervention. I ask that you help me notify those who would be most effective getting the word out that his situation is more urgent than has been reported and ongoing prayer is needed. Thanks, E.C.

Subject: Urgent Prayer Request for John Ashcroft
URGENT PRAYER REQUEST
An urgent call has just been received from an Assistant Attorney General at the Department of Justice asking us to spread the word that Attorney General Ashcroft is in desperate need of prayer. They are asking all of us to get the word out to our churches and membership immediately. AG Ashcroft is in critical condition due to something called Gall Stone Pancreatitis. It is an infection of the pancreas due to a gall stone. You cannot live without your pancreas but the infection is so bad now that they cannot operate. Please pray that the infection will end and that the doctors can take care of the problem or just pray for healing. Jim Combey has been sworn in as the acting Attorney General for now.
Your friends at www.conservativepetitions.com and www.christianpetitions.com

I am really concerned about the short time it took this country to fall back into the apathy we were in on Sept 10, 2001.
I don't know why you're surprised.The major media outlets suppressed the imagery as fast as they could.The Communist ,I mean,Democratic Party began carping and sniping aided by their media enablers and more than a few right wing sell outs . The nation has been lulled to sleep with junk science and junk history. The media has highlighted scum like Johnny Taliban and John F Kerry whilst denigrating or ignoring the President and the young warriors who are winning.
Lurch came to Louisiana yesterday promising jobs that our Democrat establishment have taxed out of existence .People seem to have forgotten,and this was planned,that without destroying the nihilist neo-Jacobians hiding behind Islam,that all the promises of anything else become null and void.
