    I couldnt believe this article. I was wondering what security risk a piggy bank gave. Take a look at the article on PIGGY BANKS

    What silly thing will happen next.

    Well here it is!!

    CHRIST/MASS STAMP

    How ironic is this??!! They don't even believe in Christ and they're getting their own Christ//mass stamp, but don't dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property?

    USPS New Stamp

    This one is impossible to believe. Scroll down for the text.


    If there is only one thing you forward today.....let it

    be this!

    ðäÆ

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of PanAm
    Flight 103!

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World
    Trade Center in 1993!

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine
    barracks in Lebanon!

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military
    barracks in Saudi Arabia!

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American
    Embassies in Africa!

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

    REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001!

    REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!


    Now the United States Postal Service REMEMBERS and HONORS the
    EID MUSLIM holiday season with a commemorative first class
    holiday postage stamp.

    REMEMBER to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp
    when purchasing your stamps at the post office.
    To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those
    AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.

    REMEMBER to pass this along to every patriotic AMERICAN you know


    Note: it didnt come with the "copy" but it is a US Postal Service stamp featuring Mulsim greeting.

    Ken, Thanks. I got it. My two year old son has more intelligence than all the CEO's of these British Banks combined. Those people are just plain dumb.

    My piggy bank is an old moonshine jar I found at a garage sale for a quarter in Kentucky. Does that offend anyone? How silly.

    One would have thought Jews would have been offended eons ago by piggy banks, but I guess they don't count. All that counts nowadays is being politically correct because of islamophobia.

    You don't have to register - on the right hand side is a pass (ad shown instead of registration).

    From the article:
    LE, yeah, pork is an abomination to Jews as well as Moslems, but these little piggies aren't being eaten. Some bank officials are just silly.

    Yet another example of a vocal minority causing a ruccus.

    Look at France folks.
    They "gave in" and "gave in" and "welcomed and welcomed" and then their cities burned for 12 days because they "didn't do enough."

    I heard this a little while ago. Several muslim groups have said they don't expect this to catch on. It's quite over the top. Likewise, Jewish groups (Jews similarly have a ban on swine) think this is just plain silly.

    A local radio talk show host, who is Jewish, played off the stereotype of Jewish bankers and the piggybank story. I nearly spit my diet vanilla coke all over my windshield.
