On this anniversary of Sept. 11, I am not remembering so much as I am looking forward.

Like Dec. 7, Sept. 11 will be forever seared into our national consciousness. Everyone will forever remember exactly where he was when the voodoo terrorists attacked America and killed almost 3,000 of our countrymen on that September day. It is a day that will live in infamy.

I remember and thank the brave warriors of the U.S. military and their families who have sacrificed so much over these past 10 years to keep America safe. They know that the cost of freedom can be terribly high, heartbreakingly painful and personal. I am humbled to be in their presence.

If we learn anything from that horrible day, it is that there are evil, maniacal subhuman maggots in the world who have no respect for life. They are filled with evil voodoo bloodlust, hate and rage. They believe killing in all forms, including beheadings, brings great joy to their God. Evil is sick is evil.

The list of religious-inspired hate crimes these vermin have unleashed on the world over the past 40 years is proof that these demonic cultists are on a global jihad to crush freedom and implement their psychotic, dogma on the world.

We simply must not let them.

Moving forward, America must continue to identify and eradicate these terrorist vermin. We must never surrender to complacency or apathy as we did before Sept. 11, as they are the weakest link in our chain of security. We must remain vigilant and on the offense. Where two or more of these terror cultists gather, they should expect us to drill a hole in their foreheads.

Like one of my heroes, I also have a dream. I dream of a day when these vermin and their mad-cow religious beliefs are removed from the face of the earth or so marginalized that they and their caveman voodoo beliefs ultimately follow the flight path of the dodo bird. We must continue to kill them at every opportunity. Death and war are all they understand. We must give those to them nonstop by unleashing hell upon them at all times.

Though I have little faith in the public school system to do much of anything right, it should be required to show the film of the planes hitting the towers, people leaping to their deaths from the twin towers, the Pentagon on fire and other video from that day. Ignoring this truth is ignoring reality and has perpetuated the scourge of denial that facilitated our tendency take it time and time again.

Looking to the future - we must study history. The history of the world is a study of a world at war. Global peace is the rare exception, not the rule. Knowing that, our politicians must be very cautious about reducing our military’s ability to kill the enemies of freedom by cutting its budget to further placate the insane federal government’s gluttonous addiction to wanton spending. Fund the military and slash the budgets of all other agencies, departments and programs.

Should we fail to study our history and remain vigilant, we will be emboldening terrorist vermin to plan and implement another attack similar to Sept. 11. That is a risk we cannot afford.

Americans must commit to this struggle for the long term. It will take years, possibly decades, to win the war on terror. That is our future, our reality. It is the most fundamental lesson of Sept. 11.

America either kicks butt as if we mean it, or we will continue to get ours kicked.
