VOL. II Issue 3M
In reaction to last nights unpleasantness, Iraq launched 40 Scud missiles at the American forces in Kuwait. Interestingly enough, these missiles did not exist in Iraq according to U.N. reports (did you hear that, Susan Sarandon). Said Scuds were taken down by Patriot anti-missile missiles. You may remember that the Patriot missile was credited with the Allies winning Gulf war I 12 years ago. The Patriot has came under some criticism of late as being either ineffective and obsolete. Ask our People in Kuwait how ineffective they are now.
Todays reports include oil fields on fire in Basra, Iraq, which is visable from the Kuwaiti border.
Saddam was supposedly on Iraqi television Thursday Morning. American intellegence claims that it could have been a double, and that it is likely that Saddam is either dead or in hiding. Thus far the only official casulty of the bunker attack, according to Iraq, is one civilian.
American artillery is being fired at Iraq as we speak, yet the military brass insist that war has not started yet. If it's not war, we don't know what to call it. As such, Holabird Advocate Publisher Jerry Hinkle has decided to pull the current poll at noon today Holabird time.

At this time of crisis, Harold and Mary Hinkle have decided to motor home this morning. They were not able to visit Marion Maginnis as some had hoped. Last night the Kennedys and the Hinkles went to a local rib joint in Green Valley, and the usually frugal Harold Hinkle paid the check.
Last Summer,Darrel Hinkle had timed it so that cows would bring forth calves on March 20th. There have beem about 8 premature births brought on possibly by weather stress. There is no snow on the ground today in the Holabird area, even though E.E. Hinkle claimed to be stiff all over. So much for the "Big Storm of 2003".

I think the vast differences in compensation between the victims of the September 11th casualty, and those who die serving the country in uniform, are profound. No one is really talking about it either because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11th. Well, I just can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country.
If you lost a family member in the September 11th attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.
If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable. Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.
Keep in mind that some of the people that are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it's not enough. We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11th families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.
You see where this is going, don't you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over fifty years of entitlement politics in this country. It's just really sad.

Words by Julia Ward Howe
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory, Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory, Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory, Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on!
I have seen Him in the watchfires of a hundred circling camps;
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
"As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal"
Let the Hero born of woman crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never sound retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement seat.
O be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free;
While God is marching on.

Words and music by George F. Root
Oh, we'll rally 'round the flag boys, we'll rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom;
We will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plain,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom.
The Union forever, Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally 'round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
And we'll fill the vacant ranks with a million freemen more,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom.
We well welcome to our numbers the loyal, true, and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
And although they may be poor not a man shall be a slave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom.
So we're springing to the call from the East and from the West,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
And we'll hurl the Rebel crew from the land we love the best,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom.
