The Iraq War: Legal or Illegal?

The Iraq War: Legal or Illegal?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n63PnML6irA

Many Americans filed their income tax returns last week just prior to the April 15, 2013 deadline. Amazingly, last week, I also was shocked to discover that one of my favorite movies had been deleted from my FACEBOOK profile. Concomitantly, several movies, books, and musical artists I don’t like were added to my profile without my consent. Is it possible that Big Brother’s Thought Police don’t approve of my erudite selection of television shows, movies, music, and books for the enlightenment rather than for the entertainment of America’s Youths? I just woke up one day and the profile I created was gone. Wow! Interestingly, “The Iraq War: Legal or Illegal?” also has vanished from my public library’s DVD data base as well as the book, For God and Country, by Yusuf Yee. Ergo, I encourage pastors, parents, high school and college students to view this profoundly enlightening movie on YouTube posthaste before it vanishes. For fun, I challenge autodidacts and students alike to try this abridged IQ [Interesting Questions] Exam, which I included in VICE’s [www.victoryNchrist.net] textbook in its entirety. Political Science and History majors also may want to watch and discuss YouTube’s Illuminati Overview, which was recorded [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n63PnML6irA] twenty years ago in 1993. Indubitably, the paradigm shift in our nation’s moral position on politics, religion, and sexuality is not coincidental. With well over one million convicted felons in our communities, VICE affords them a second chance to lead more virtuous and productive lives via an income opportunity in our book club’s Not Guilty Program. After all, have not all of us made “moral mistakes”? For example, Moses and King David were murderers; were they not? Yet, what better prototype of victory in Christ can one find than Victor Hugo’s Jean Valjean? College students and other members of VICE who have spent at least 90 days in a juvenile facility or in foster care also are eligible for this same $200.00 discount for Independent Agents distributing and discussing books with their customers. In the context of Biblical morality, the USS Titanic has stricken an iceberg and already has begun to sink. Of course, the Scriptures declare that it won’t be water, but fire, the next time GOD’s judgment and retribution will destroy the Earth! May GOD incessantly bless your intelligent, critical thinking as you examine World War II History and the perpetuation of our own axis of evil in Iraq. Implicitly, is the United States of America’s government of the People, for the People and by the People vanishing away…or already gone? Ergo, are our high schools, colleges, and universities truly educating America’s Youths or creating a new generation of Orwellian proles and Manchurian candidates? I rest my case. Hopefully, this DVD will enlighten and empower at least some of you to unplug from the Matrix and to bend the spoon.

                        THE PINKY SHOW PRESENTS: The Iraq War: Legal or Illegal?
