Don't know if this speech to the Federalist Society on Nov. 16, 2001 has been posted on here before.

His remarks pretty much hit the nail on the head.

"Our Constitution -- always with the support of our people -- has extended its embrace to the unpopular, the unusual, the unconventional and the unorthodox. We protect not only those who will not salute our flag, but those who would spit upon it or burn it. We pledge our allegiance to a Constitution that shelters those who refuse to pledge their allegiance to it."

Big BKO bump. Wish we could drum up Ted's email address so we could let him know how fondly his wife is remembered.

But it's a darn good one.

Thank you so much for posting this article. The Opinion Journal, Wall Street Journal's opinion website, posted this today for non-subscribers.

Paging Clinton and Carter, paging Chomsky and Arafat, Daschle and the DNC.....

"Ronald Reagan often said that "every once in a while, each of us native-born Americans should make it a point to have a conversation with someone who is an American by choice." Mr. Reagan was fond of quoting from a letter he received from a man who wrote, "you can go to live in Turkey, but you can't become a Turk. You can't go to live in Japan and become Japanese, [and so on for Germany, France, etc.]. But . . . anyone from any corner of the world can come to America and be an American."

Lump-in-the-throat BUMP for Ted and The Gipper.

And there are seven million Muslims in America, nearly the population of New York City.

Clearly, about 7 million to many.

They had one thing in common. They were nearly all Americans.

Twenty-four Canadians were included in the WTC toll, IIRC.

Just including this for the record.
I wouldn't be suprised if some of them were like two of my cousins...transitioning
to being US Citizens.

Egads. We've got a beacon alright. But we shouldn't bash the rest of the world over the head with it, even though they're too dumb, cynical, and hateful to realize what we've got. I hate to say it, but we've got to watch out how we entangle ourselves in foregin affairs.

Sheez. We've got enough enemies in our own midst, let alone the cave dwelling bastards who killed our own.
