The Project For a New American Century!Written by Frank Reilly
In recent months we have engaged in many conversations with Christians and non Christians alike, on matters concerning American Government, and its activities in world today. On a universal level, those of faith AND those who do not share our faith agree on one thing, and that is that none of what we have been saying here at 11th Hour for last 14 months is actual fact, and that it is all "OUR opinion and OUR misinterpretation of George W's policies and intentions", purely speculation and our conjecture: no supportable facts". The following article will summarily place that statement in wastebasket... where it belongs. The document outlined in this article was inspired by foreign policy outline drawn up by Dick Cheney and his colleagues in 1992, when he was secretary of defense for Senior Bush's administration. It is a documented fact that these men had sent letters to Bill Clinton and raved about these mandates that they felt were essential to America's future. The Project for a New American Century, (so called), is an initiative of "The New Citizenship Project", which is made up of a startling group of names, which will be mentioned here. It is absolutely sobering and even chilling when you read process of world domination laid out in this document, when you consider fact that Men who wrote and endorse this document, are very men who are in control of White House, Pentagon, and Defense Dept! Let's take a look at their motives and their intentions, how they have played out recently, and what we can expect from our government going forward...

Feeling Squeezed by Political CorrectnessWritten by Terry Mitchell
I'm starting to feel squeezed by all political correctness being imposed on us by both Left and Right. Both sides are constantly trying to infringe on our freedoms by telling us what we can and cannot say or do. I'm getting sick and tired of it. Below are just a few examples of what they are trying to impose on us.
The Left tells us: (1) Being simply tolerant of all kinds if sexual variants like homosexuals, bisexuals, transvestites, and trans-gendered is not good enough. We must accept their lifestyles as natural and normal. We must never, of course, say anything negative about practitioners of those lifestyles. Ideally, we should worship ground they walk on like Hollywood crowd does. My take: I'm all for tolerance and I'm basically a live-and-let-live kind of guy, but this is over top. Tolerance, yes; forced acceptance, no. (2) Women are equal to men in every way (except those ways in which women are better or do not choose to be equal). They must be given every opportunity men are given, but must not be held to same physical or emotional standards. In addition, women are considered minorities (even though there are more of them than there are men), so they must be given special preferences and opportunities that are not afforded to men. Violence to women is always unacceptable but men often deserve it. Any depiction of violence to women is no laughing matter and must be abolished, but depictions of violence to men are usually quite funny. Anything that can be perceived as degrading to women is horrible but most men deserve a little degradation at times. My take: Any woman should be given opportunity to prove that she can do any given job as well as a man could do. If she can, then she should be given equal access to that job and paid whatever a man would be paid. However, if she can’t, then she shouldn’t complain about lack of access to job or unequal pay. It is every woman's right to determine whether or not she wants to be treated differently because of her gender. However, no woman has a right to have it both ways. Either she wants to be treated differently from a man or she doesn't. Also, violence to either sex, except to defend oneself or someone from imminent physical harm, is totally unacceptable. (3) All races and ethnic groups are equal, but those who are considered to be minorities must be given special preferences in order to succeed. More specifically, African-Americans must be given preferential treatment to offset way white males treated them during 18th and 19th centuries. All of problems that exist in African-American community can be traced back either to direct actions or indifference of white males. My take: I totally agree with premise that all races and ethnic groups are equal. I've always endorsed "color blind society" school of thought, with no special preferences for anyone. I think we would all do well to quit identifying ourselves and one another by racial and ethnic categories. (4) Trees, land, and animals are all more important than making life better for humans. You cannot develop life-saving or life-enhancing drugs if some small animal will be hurt in process. You cannot build what you want nor can you do what you want on your own land if it requires cutting down some trees or forcing some animals to go elsewhere. You cannot cut down trees to develop land and/or build new homes. You cannot drill for oil if it will ruin pristine nature of any piece of land or interfere with any animal's habitat. Besides, you're supposed to drive small, cramped economy cars to conserve oil supply. You're also supposed to carpool and/or use public transportation, even if it's not convenient. My take: Any person or organization should have a right to do what they want with their own property, as long as no human being is directly harmed.
