Iraqi Freedom Goal!

Revised and Retitled form of IF THE TABLES HAD BEEN TURNED 2


                        IRAQI FREEDOM GOAL!


Survivors of the Germany where Hitler’s henchmen reigned,

Would surely have more sympathy for those ruled by Hussein!

Instead of criticizing the “Iraqi Freedom” aim,

They’d realize that liberation is a noble claim.


Our men and women fighting there ‘gainst degradation’s rule

Are teaching many children what it means to go to school,

To have a goal of living, and their longings to fulfill!

Pursuing dreams of happiness, not thousands they might kill,


The common people soon perceived our troops mean only good,

To give them hope of living in a peaceful neighborhood,

Where fear and apprehension could be taken far away,

Instead of their “companions” every moment of the day


There’s really no comparison with Hitler’s vast blitzkrieg,

Determining to overthrow all Nations in The League,

It’s not the common people who resist our troops’ advance,

The war would soon be over if the people had a chance.


Our troops face opposition from the tyrants, for control

Of ev’ry thought and notion, lest the people reach their goal

Of self-determination, a respectful livelihood,

To stop the subjugation, and the wanton shedding blood!


Imposing western ways on lands of Japheth, Ham, and Shem

Is not the aim of those who dream of liberating them.

Devising ways to reach their goals; though Poet’s words repeat*

That “East and west shall never…” in the Bible’s God we’ll meet!

Any TRUE American

How can any TRUE American so easily forget the mind-crushing events of September 11? 

CLICK HERE for a very clear reminder, if you need one.  

It makes TRUE Americans sick to hear the whining of those who blather on, claiming that the USA should play nice with the Islamic driven terrorists who have nothing else in mind but to distroy and completely inaliate our people, our goverment, our freedom, our schools, our children, our elders, our parents, our military, our colleges, and OUR FUTURE! 

If you are in that group of whiners, you need to read the book “Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America”. This true account makes the Islamic intentions crystal clear. Hopefully America will hear and heed this warning. If we don’t, we will pay with the Future and the Freedom of our Nation. WAKE UP AMERICA! 

From the “About This Book” page:
Brigitte Gabriel lost her childhood to militant Islam. In 1975 she was ten years old and living in Southern Lebanon when militant Muslims from throughout the Middle East poured into her country and declared jihad against the Lebanese Christians. Lebanon was the only Christian influenced country in the Middle East, and the Lebanese Civil War was the first front in what has become the worldwide jihad of fundamentalist Islam against non-Muslim peoples. For seven years, Brigitte and her parents lived in an underground bomb shelter. They had no running water or electricity and very little food; at times they were reduced to boiling grass to survive
Because They Hate is a political wake-up call told through a very personal memoir frame. Brigitte warns that the US is threatened by fundamentalist Islamic theology in the same way Lebanon was— radical Islam will stop at nothing short of domination of all non-Muslim countries. Gabriel saw this mission start in Lebanon, and she refuses to stand silently by while it happens here. Gabriel sees in the West a lack of understanding and a blatant ignorance of the ways and thinking of the Middle East. She also points out mistakes the West has made in consistently underestimating the single-mindedness with which fundamentalist Islam has pursued its goals over the past thirty years. Fiercely articulate and passionately committed, Gabriel tells her own story as well as outlines the history, social movements, and religious divisions that have led to this critical historical conflict.

Read the Book, America, and take heed before it’s too late! CLICK HERE for book information.




When Winston Churchill was a young man, his father concluded that Winston was unfit for a career in law or politics because he did so badly in school. 

Barbara Streisand’s mother told her she wasn’t pretty enough to be an actress and she could never become a singer because her voice wasn’t good enough. 

Conrad Hilton, who created a business empire with his Hilton Hotels, once overheard his father say to his mother, “Mary, I do not know what will become of Connie. I’m afraid he’ll never amount to anything.”


When Charles Darwin was getting ready to set sail on his five-year expedition on the Beagle, his father was extremely disappointed. He thought his son was drifting into a life of sin and idleness.

[Note: In his later years Charles Darwin recanted his theory of evolution, and fully embraced the Bible as the true word of God… including the biblical account of creation.] 


George Washington’s mother was a harping, complaining, self-centered woman by all accounts. She belittled Washington’s accomplishments and didn’t show up at either of his presidential inaugurations. She was always whining that her children neglected her, and she was especially enraged when her son George ran off to command the army for the American Revolution. She honestly believed it was his duty to stay home and take care of her. 

In his youth, the late Leonard Bernstein, one of the most talented and successful composers in American history, was continually pressured by his father to give up his music and do something worthwhile, like help out in his family’s beauty-supply business. After Leonard became famous, his father was asked about that, and he answered, “Well how was I supposed to know he was THE Leonard Bernstein!” 

People may criticize you or make fun of your ideas or actively try to stop you. Often their efforts are only attempts to protect you from failure. But failure is only fatal if you stop. If you keep going, a failure is just another learning experience. And besides, giving up on a heartfelt aspiration is worse than failing. “Many people die,” said Oliver Wendell Holmes, “with their music still in them.” That’s true tragedy. 

So listen politely to the worries and criticisms of your friends and family, and do your best to put their minds at ease, but then carry on. Listen lastly to your own heart.  You know yourself better than anyone on earth. Make sure your song is sung.


Editors Note:
Consider this – What if these people would have let their critics remarks destroy their hopes, dreams, ambitions? We can agree that the world would be forever changed if these people had not fulfilled their destined roles (God given assignments in life).

How many times have you let critiicism defeat you, destroy your dreams and crush your potential? When we give in to these destructice forces, lives and events may well be forever changed because we did not fulfill our destined role. Hmmm…

Then, here is the Challenge…

Next time you feel like giving up when others are critical and negative and do not see the God given worth in you, or do not understand the God given dream in you …. just remember, you have a destiny to fulfill, and God gave you that assignment for a purpose. Only you can fulfill this assignment, exactly as it is supposed to be, for the right eternal outcome. It may not seem like something great or world changing. and maybe it isn’t. But every time we do something that makes a difference, even to one life, it counts!

Welcome to the Tribute page for Frank Tuthill

Frank Tuthill was a person who was more comfortable with as little attention as possible. He held his feelings and his thoughts to himself more than ever letting them be known. Frank was an accomplished artist, working in oils, pastels, pen and ink, charcoal sketching. He made his subjects live on the canvas or paper with a realism that was unique. He had a particular gift for portrayal of people, nature and wild life.  

Frank lived from December 1913 to November 2005.
