Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

What do the letters ACLU stand for anyway?


OK..if you need a gentle reminder as to how your 'rights' as Americans are being looked after...seek no more. One of the ACLU's many claims to fame:
Some of you, no doubt recall this:
In May 2005, the D.C. Fire Department announced that it would discharge any firefighter who had a beard. The Department requires firefighters to take a “fit test" to show that the facemasks they wear form a good seal with their faces. The Department says that facial hair prevents a good fit--but it prohibits bearded firefighters from taking the test to show that they can get a good fit..

On August 11, the U.S. District Court extended a preliminary injunction protecting our clients--three Muslim firefighters who wear beards as a matter of religious observance--from being dischared by the D.C. Fire Department, pending a final decision in their case.
ACLU Rationalizations

O.K. so they claimed: "The Religious Freedom Restoration Act" requires government agencies to accommodate the religious needs of employees whenever possible."

Did I miss something ?..Accomodating religious observance is something the ACLU fights for??
Oh..wait...Muslim religious observance.
Well, now that explains it.

    Ironic how we feel the need to cater to these "terrorists" while they so blatantly desecrate our land and country. And we claim were not scared of them!? ha! this is just one of the million ways our liberal govt is trying to show them that we respect these "people", so please stop bombing us! My gosh, show some strength America! Sheesh!
