Link to the image since the port office pulled it from their website. Remember, the president had to approve this.

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103! REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993! REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon ! REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia ! REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa ! REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE! REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001! REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks! Now President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 42 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp! REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office. All you have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!" To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors. ~REMEMBER ~ Pass this along to every Patriotic AMERICAN that you know and lets get the word out!!! Here is something to chew on.... They (MUSLIMS) don't even believe in Christ, & they're getting their own Christmas stamp! BUT, don't dare to dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property! This is truly UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Thanks Mr. President. Just what we needed to take the focus off Obama_SCARE!

While I doubt the President personally reviews and approves all stamps issued by the USPS, George W. Bush was POTUS when these stamps were issued, according the the 8/1/01 date on the press release.

To post an image from the web, put your mouse over it, right click it, on the popup which apprears, click properties, which gives you un turn another pop up with the url address of the picture. Copy that (mouse over the address, left click & hold to highlight, then right click to select copy) then come back to the posting box here on FR and paste it. Now enclose the URL address you've just pasted in quotation marks. Next, put in front of what you've just quoted: img src= then enclose the whole thing in brackets < like this >.

So the code you will eventually have is < img src="the picture's url" >, except without a space between the brackets & your code - I had to put them in there just now so you could see it in this post.

I pointed him toward the HTML bootcamp and HTML sandbox threads.

What an HTML education!

President Obama just approved the price increase to .42 from last year’s .41 and I can’t believe this XXXX! How many Marines and soldiers died at Muslim hands already and for what? The right to chop off their daughter’s head or keep selling opium?

Will there be a problem with people spitting on the wrong side?

Not in my home. Christmas or Christ’s Mass works for us.

The 'X' in X-mas is Christ's first initial. There's nothing inherently un-Christian or anti-Christian about "X-mas."

“X” is the Greek letter Chi, the first letter in “Christ.”

We don’t speak or write Greek and I’ve never seen English words with part of the word in Greek and the 2nd syllable in English...
