The Fox Guarding the Hen House


Recommended Posts

Well, boys and girls, today the fox is guarding the hen house.


Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts.


Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).


NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering.


Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already?? That should make our home land much safer, huh!?



Checked this on Snopes.com and its TRUE!

See http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/dhs.asp



Thats like saying all catholic priests are child molesters - and im sure they didn't get to their previous positions and keep them as long as they did if they were terrorists. Im glad your church teaches you not to judge lest ye be judged.

What am I saying that is like saying all catholic priests are child molesters? I am saying that I am not comfortable with Muslims in these positions. I think more than 50% of our citizens would agree with me.


What has church to do with being uncomfortable on a national security issue. If we were in any of the Muslim countries we would not find non-muslims appointed to key policy positions. I have Muslim friends so I do not think every Muslim is a terrorist but I do not think that Muslims should be in key position on national security since that is the biggest threat to our national security. It is certainly not a comforting thought to me.


What i am getting at is this - first , i am SURE anyone at that level of government has been investigated so deeply they wont be able to sit down for a week - and 2- the u.s. is a muslim country, and a catholic country and christian and Buddhist and any other religion you can think of - thats what makes it better than the "muslim countries" you mentioned. Just because they are muslim does'nt mean they dont deserve the same opportunities as everyone else. If as you said, you dont feel like all muslims are terrorists then there should be no issue that 2 of them were appointed to HS. I can see the prez's thought on this - if your gonna catch a muslim extreemist - you need to think like a muslim-


as for my "catholic priest" comment - it is toward not your outright words - but where you are leading the reader with your choice of words- i wonder - would you have any problem sending your kids to a small daycare for 8 hours a day that was run by a catholic priest? I did not see your post as a "security issue" i took it as a bigotry issue (i am white) which is not what church is supposed to teach people. If i look at it as a security issue... i can see your concern as a valid one - my apologies.


When it comes down to it - we are all business owners and leaders of our community - we serve all the people that walk into our stores and spend MONEY - i dont know about your part of the country but where i am, if one of my muslim customers saw me write something like that with my stores name and logo next to it, i would be out of business in a matter of months- we as business owners need to think about everything we do and say in a public forum - you never know who could be watching.just my 2 cents - did not mean to offend on my first post as a member...

      Key Talking Points
      What people forget- NAPA isn’t a chain or a franchise; it is owned by people in your neighborhood. His dad was a dealer technician- he was his dad's mechanical assistant  Told team owner last September he wasn’t coming back- Announced the launch of his own team, Ron Capps Motorsports, in December 2021. The team, with Capps serving as owner-driver, made its NHRA debut in 2022 2022 marks Capps’ 28th season competing professionally in the NHRA (first event: Phoenix, 1995) One of 17 drivers in NHRA history to have claimed a win in both the Top Fuel and Funny Car categories “I was in my mom’s belly at my first race,” he says, adding his mom, Betty, met his dad, John, at a drag race. “I’ll never forget when I was at the Denver airport going up an escalator, and a woman at least 80 was coming down,” he recalls. “As she came closer, she started singing the ‘NAPA Know How’ song and was shaking her head as we do in the commercials “You can’t win the Kentucky Derby on a mule.” Intrigued by hearing the stories of NAPA Auto Care people and fans while attending events and networking  Hired his world championship team to join him- the manager is critical and the trust to let the team members do what they need to do with processes and procedures. There is a team goal to be successful.  Advice for son- get a basic business degree Behind the scenes before a race- sponsor event (like indoor go carting, top golf, dinners etc) 8 crew members take apart an engine and put it back together in 33 minutes. 11,000 horsepower 300 mph+ in a quarter mile 0 to 100mph in 7/10 of a second in 60 ft His wife is involved in the business- invoices, insurance, etc “Crash course to be an owner…but you can do it.”
