I love free stuff 

Thanks goes out to Cait of Caiterwauling for first telling me how to get free image hosting at www.freepicturehosting.com and then giving me a picture to post.

Via Cait:

If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That's because they're praying. The incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. "These are federal employees," says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, "on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately." When asked about the ACLU's charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Corps said (cleaned up a bit), "Screw the ACLU."

What was I just saying about the present church/state situation in America?

Thanks Cait. Free blog. Free pictures. Freedom.

UPDATE: Snopes says the story is bogus. Screw Snopes.
