"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free"

This is the inscription that's written on the Statue Of Liberty. I was looking at pictures of the statue and it got me thinking, how ironic is it that it was the French that gave us the statue. This symbol of freedom and hope. Read the inscription. Does that not discribe the Iraqi people under the iron thumb of Saddam Hussein? The irony is that the French were opposed to the Iraqi's being freed. Why? Because they didn't want to loose their oil and money from Iraq. Saddam owed millions to France, and that's all they wanted. Money. So the next time you want to bitch and moan about the U.S. being in Iraq, read the above. And the next time someone throws up one of their tired "No Blood For Oil" signs, just think about France and their connection to Iraq.

Two new sites for you all to visit. Ted's Blog and Real Clear Politics. Both Conservative sites. I don't know about you, but I feel those are the best kind.
