On Freedom

Interesting post by Captain Freedom over at Freedomloversunite!.
follow up: Since the beloved pig's blog was mysteriously broken for serveral days(no doubt has something to do with the dispatches he has smuggled out of Gitmo), I re-post a snippet from his latest one that appeared over at Blogcritics ezine.
On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of 9/11, the day that will go down in freedomhating infamy, I, Captain Freedom the beardedpig, have decided, in the name of those nearly 3,000 fallen for freedom on 9/11; those 3,000 Americans fallen for freedom in Iraq; and those nearly 50,000 Iraqi civilians fallen with the sweet taste of freedom on their lips—to celebrate the unwavering devotion to freedom our greatOn the occasion of the fifth anniversary of 9/11, the day that will go down in freedomhating infamy, I, Captain Freedom the Beardedpig, have decided, in the name of those nearly 3,000 fallen for freedom on 9/11; those 3,000 Americans fallen for freedom in Iraq; and those nearly 50,000 Iraqi civilians fallen with the sweet taste of freedom on their lips—to celebrate the unwavering devotion to freedom our great Freedomlover has demonstrated amid the catcalling slings and arrows of freedomhaters for five long years.
