FREEDOM IS AN ACHE IN THE HEART

For optimum viewing pleasure, Sherri recommends that you open two windows and go to this link. Listen to Proud to Be an American as you enjoy the pictures!!!






FREEDOM Posted by Hello


Freedom is courage conquering despair
It is the swell of hope that rises in each breath.


Be not wary of a race, a religion, or a uniform
Know the enemy by what scares him.

Freedom is what we are willing to die for
It is what the enemy fears most.



Words could never fully express the MAGIC and GLORY of today, so here are some images instead.


The next two photos are brought to you by mich-again from LGF! Thank you mich-again!!!

  • Well said, Sherri! A new chapter dawns in the middle east. This is the beginning of a trail of tears. But the trail leads to self-determination, to freedom. The human spirit does yearn to be free. Those who say otherwise fall in to two groups:
    Those who would rule others, to be the masters of the masses.
    Those who do not wish to be responsible for their own behavior.

    What puzzles me is the willingness to accept the tyranny of others to avoid personal responsibilty, but then always be the one to suffer for what you do wrong. (Wrong being defined now as pissin' off the master). Theocracies are the worst, usually, since they put the divine stamp of approval on the evil of individual men.

  • I really like this picture of the young women. She looks happy and free. Even though I've never experiance what she has, I understand happiness to just be FREE!

  • Isn't 21st Century American neo-conservatism a theocracy?

    Wait and see on Middle-East stability, Iraq is not the question or the cornerstone. American funding of the Israeli nation and the subsequent oppression of the Palestinian race is still the fire that needs dousing.

    Sorry to be a prim Brit - Thomas Paine in that quote was referring to revolution - revolution in France, the US and at home in the UK not independence from a state.

  • blah blah blah-"isn't American neoconservatism theocracy. Sherri, looks like you have a loyal troll. Congrats to the Iraqis and to the Americans that stood for doing the right thing-and God bless our men and women in uniform.

  • Anyone think Rusty Hand will ever answer the questions he's been asked? I'll ask again:

    Mr Iron Fist. You say you are a convicted felon. How do you explain your gun collection?

  • Hey, Rust Face:
    What were you thinking when you posted this message to a woman living in NY state?

    Word up, holmes.
    Bitch don't have a clue what she just bought into, does she?
    Real world, those Molotov's through the front windows would have really sucked.
    Dudes with the gauges wouldn't have been much better
    Fortunately, for her, it's all virtual.
    She gets a pass.

    "Fortunately, for her, it's all virtual."

    What's all virtual, Rust Brain? Oh, I get it. Your fantasy about firebombing or shotgunning this woman's house is just 'all virtual'. So that's okay?

  • Sherri, I know you aren't the type that deletes comments from your blog, but I'm pretty sure none of your readers will be hurt if you delete the stalking spam of that self-absorbed namejacker.

    This topic is about the celebration of a new day in Iraq! Whooo hooo!!!

    I'm still tearing up, just at the thought of those images. What a start! I know much hard work is yet to come - but 72% voter turnout demands celebration!

    God bless George Bush, our military and their families, our allies, the courageous Iraqis who stood for and are taking office and those who VOTED!

  • (This is mich-again from LGF, I just didn't feel like going through the registration stuff right now.) I love all the pics, especially of the old lady with tears in her eyes. Wow! Thanks for putting those out there. With the leftist cynics (led by John Kerry) trumpeting ad-nauseum doom and gloom about Iraq and her future, it was so awesome to see the citizens there so excited about having the opportunity to vote even with the threats of violence. Many pessimistic, complacent Americans can learn a lot about the price of liberty from the Iraqis. I may even die my finger purple just to piss off some moonbats I work with tomorrow!

    The truth will always eventually overpower lies, but it takes time. Mark Twain said "A lie can make it half way around the world before the truth can even get its shoes on." The truth of the bravery of our soldiers and the spirit of the Iraqi people will soon enough drown out the sour grapes nonsense from the Blame-America and Saddam-wasn't-so-bad crowd. God Bless the USA and may the new Iraq be a beacon of light for the whole Middle East.

  • Sherri can't say much right now, but fans of SUWS: We know who this is. Steps are being taken. The 'person of interest' has already been 'outed'.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:23 PM  

  • I think Frank has the right idea: anytime he posts, just let him know we know. He's posting a lot less now (hooray). That's why he's using this place to 'get at' IF.

  • Lyana, please keep in mind the turnout was around 60%, not 72% as first reported. Still great news! But the less we exaggerate the better for all.

    well, can we at least get him banned from LGF?

  • I can't say much publicly, but Sherri has positively identified this pathetic loser. Email me for details if you'd like.

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 6:37 PM  

  • Just so it is clear-- when in doubt as to who which comment is that of the real jlfintx from LGF or the troll-- very easy--- just click the blue link of its comments "jlfintx" and you will see that if it reads about gay men-- it is the troll...

    kinda cute how pathetic one's life must be to spend so much time obsessed with others.......

    Thank GOD I have a life.......

    By Blogger Straight Up with Sherri, at 6:44 PM  

  • Proof Rusty Fist is as dumb as a rock:
    1) Posts zillions of anti-Muslim messages (including 'nuke Muslim city messages).
    2) Organizes a public meeting for him and his fans.
    3) Posts time and location of that meeting on the internet.
    4) Challenges various people to some kind of 'showdown' at the venue, no thought for what that might mean for his guests.

    This is proof of his incredible stupidity. He could have had a 'meetup' organized by email. But no, showboat that he is, he has to post the whole thing on the world-wide web. Ball Bearings for brains.

    Ask yourself, how stupid is that?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:19 PM  

  • What are you implying? That I.F. put his ego before the safety of his "guests?" No way...I.F. has more honor than that.

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 7:25 PM  

  • How stupid is it that everyone else you know is spending their time on things that matter???

    How stupis is it that you have spent this much time and energy (researching all the posts of IF, posting, trying to scramble the tracking of where you connect to Sherri's blog from, blah, blah, blah) trying to get attention.

    How stupid is it that you do all this to try and make IF look bad, and all you have done is make YOU look like a pathetic infant.

    No one cares what you say about IF. No one cares.

    You look stupid

    In fact, I hope you keep it up. Sherri is getting a lot of help from your temper tantrums.

    BTW- I hit the tip jar for you Sherri (anyone patient enough to deal with this mental giant deserves it)

    God bless you and your children.
    You have talent, guts, and a GREAT SMILE.
    Glad to know you and call you friend.

  • Not to give too much credit to the troll creep but he has raised at least a few eyebrows (mine included). I'm not going to judge Iron First based on just the troll's posts, but at least my eyes are open (that's all anyone can ask I suppose).

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:33 PM  

  • Well, Sherri,

    I see the moron is continuing to post as me. The last word I wrote before this one was "bask in victory". The others are a montage of someone trying to say things I did not say. Pretty pathetic for someone to hide beyond someone else's name. I hope the law puts this person in the slammer and I am sure whoever it is needs to be prepared for quite an awakening. Their coming to get you troll. How does it feel?

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 8:15 PM  

  • Well, when all this is shown to the law, perhaps the law will ask, 'who is this Iron Fist Felon' and why does he have guns?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:19 PM  

  • jlfintx - just out of curiosity, what 'law' do you supposed the 'other' jlfintx has 'broken'?

    And why aren't you concerned about Felon Iron Fist owning guns? Now that's breaking the law.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:22 PM  

  • I can just see the newstory now: "When blogger 'Iron Fist' posted on popular website Little Green Footballs about his skill with weapons, he had many interested admirers. When he also posted something of his history, and his felony conviction for manslaughter, some people wondered what he was doing with any gun, let alone a collection. 'Iron Fist' also posted that his criminal record had been 'expunged' from the national database 'NCIC', an immpossiblity. More questions were asked and last week, a task force from Knoxville ATF....

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:30 PM  

  • lol -- you don't need to make a lame threat even lamer by misspelling it -- lol. You probably meant "they're coming," not "their coming" lol

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:32 PM  

  • Actually, my understanding was that Iron Fist' record was expunged and that is good enough for me. Since whoever you are (and you and Sherri know indeed WHO you are) you should not pretend to be me and then try and figure out what crimes you have committed while name-jacking me. I did make the their/they're boofoo in case anyone wonders and I am indeed the REAL jlfintx, but just so everyone knows:

    The bask in victory
    Their grammer error


    was the real jlfintx deal. I will refrain from posting anymore today, as the imposter is obviously trying to muddy up the waters. It is easy enough for the authorities to find out what websites and so on have been visited by what ISP addresses. See you all later and I will email Sherri tomorrow from work and get my nic changed until this fraud is INCARCERATED.

  • I am a regular at LGF. While I don't approve of trolls in general, I have to say this one has done us a great service. Reading Iron Fist's posts from the above thread has confirmed what I've long suspected: he's either a pathological liar or a nutcase or maybe both. He has done much to damage the reputation of LGF with his bloodthirsty rants and ridiculous chest thumping. I wish Charles would get rid of him.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:42 PM  

  • L., you are such a pathetic little man. Don't you have anything better to do than lash out in such a juvenile fashion? You, sir, are creepy. VERY creepy. Leave Sherri's blog alone. Leave the LGF family alone. Try opening the curtains in your dark, musty little house, and let some light in.

  • I personally think that although the troll's issue with Iron Fist appears to have some validity, it would have been better expressed using a user name other than the one he apparently "namejacked" (it's just too distracting...why not post using a legitimate user name?) Still, though, from what I have learned from google, it's unheard of to get that "NCIC" record expunged.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:50 PM  

  • for pete's sake

    you are having conversations with YOURELF!

    Yes-- you troll

    are having conversations with yourself..
    (yes, I can tell when it is you that posts, even if you do try bouncing off other blogger sites, and nice touch with the site meter thing)

    it was cute...
    now it is just truly pathetic..

    but I thank you for all the attention you have brought to my blog..

    I will be laughing all the way to the bank..

    By Blogger Straight Up with Sherri, at 8:53 PM  

  • "Actually, my understanding was that Iron Fist' record was expunged and that is good enough for me.Clearly you are not interested in the truth. Records do not get expunged. Doesn't happen. But if you're okay with Rusty Felon lying to you and bragging about his guns, that's your problem.

    Note this: Iron Fist has had plenty of opportunities to say something on this topic. After he was called on it by the former P.O. he said absolutely nothing. He's been caught out. And it's very clear that you 'Lizardoids', who are so proud of your 'fact-finding' have a double standard. Why don't you ask Iron Fist to clear this up? Is it true he's a convicted felon, and if so, how is it he owns guns?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:55 PM  

  • Sherri, your best writings occur when you're able to shrug problems off or somehow observe the beauty in the world and all of God's creations. When you say things like "laughing all the way to the bank" it just appears, well, ugly. Please don't allow yourself to be dragged down like that. Please stay your course. - A fan

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:01 PM  

  • Cowardly troll - What possible interest could you have in IF's life? His history is none of your business, and whether or not he owns guns is none of your business. Why the vendetta? What has IF ever done to you? And why are you such a sniveling coward about it? You make me sick.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:04 PM  

  • Let me quote the good witch Glinda for the benefit of your little troll...

    "Rubbish, you have no powers here. Now begone before someone drops a house on you!"

    I could care less about your little pissing contest with other LGF posters, and frankly your routine is growing quite tiresome. This thread was about the Iraqi election and the bravery of those who voted. They think they have you figured out as LS, but from the thread-jacking behavior, I'd say you are acting like Gord Voldemort himself, perhaps your idol? Shove off now beeeyotchh!

  • Cowardly anonymous poster:

    A gun-owning felon is everyone's business. And from the way he talks, he's itching to pull the trigger again. He has debased an important forum for public policy and said things on the global internet that can only help our enemies. He is an advocate for genocide and deserves to be reviled.

  • point taken, A fan

    thanks!

    THis is quite exciting and fun though!!

    LOL!

    GLORIOUS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Blogger Straight Up with Sherri, at 9:14 PM  

  • Wow, who would have thought that Iron Fist would have some troll so inflamed with love that they had to stalk him at this blog? Why not at LGF? Been banned already?

    To troll: Go ahead and buy that blow up man doll, and try not to hyperventilate in your excitement.

    Go ahead, it's easy....mail order. Then, maybe you can blow off all that excess repressed homosexual steam and get on with your life.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:44 PM  

  • By the way. Larry Schmerer is nothing to do with any of these posts. That is just a ridiculous idea that Iron Fist came up with and wildly accused LS of. Why he accused him, only Iron Fist would know.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:20 PM  

  • In fact, Iron Fist owes Lawrence Schmerer a HUGE apology for the accusation and repeating it many times. As does Frank IBC. These accusations were made without any proof at all and represent a severe discourtesy to a fellow LGF member.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:24 PM  

  • Btw, I do not think it is Schmerer, but Schmerel.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:50 PM  

  • Yeah. It is Schmerel. And I'm not dangerous or anti-LGF. I love LGF. Sure, I post a lot of BS on LGF, but it is all in fun. Some readers have told me they appreciate my sense of humor. I realize that not every one does, but I am not trying to please every one. Go to LGF and read my comments. About 75% of them are jokes and the other 25% are serious comments. Some readers told me they appreciated my serious comments too. To those who don't appreciate them, I suggest not reading them. None of this really matters to me. I think LGF is the best Web site on the internet and Charles Johnson is a jolly good fellow. So here's to Charles Johnson, long may he ride.
