A&M Conservatives Honor the 9/11 Victims

Posted by Tony Listi on September 15, 2008

The Young Conservatives of Texas at Texas A&M University joined students across the country in remembering the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. On the week of the anniversary of the attacks, YCT A&M created a memorial in the Academic Plaza comprised of 2,977 American flags, one for each person tragically killed in the attacks.

“Seven years after the tragic terrorist attacks, it is important that all Aggies take a moment to remember those who died on 9/11,” said Tony Listi, chairman of the YCT A&M Chapter. “We should never forget the price of ignoring the deadly terrorist threat posed by radical Islamic extremists.”

Each year Young America’s Foundation helps students across the country properly remember the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks through its 9/11: Never Forget Project.  Young America’s Foundation began this program in 2003 when it discovered that most college campuses were either completely ignoring the anniversary of the terrorist attacks or scheduling a politically-correct activity instead.

Over 180 schools across the country are participating this year in the 9/11: Never Forget Project.

    John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison both voted FOR the bailout last night.

    Today I dropped my support of Sen Cornyn and his re-election to the post of Senator, and I sent the Cornyn campaign and Sen Cornyn himself an email letting them know, it can be read in the thread linked above.

    In a very short time I was contaced by Vincent Harris, wanting my phone number, their campaign manager wanted to talk to me, and I told him NO, I could not, and would not support ANY candidate that voted to bailout $700B, a figure that is still low, actual figures are reported closer to $820B, and that I was pulling their logo from TexasFred’s, The American Conservative and The Texas Connection, and I did.

    Jimmy Kerr of But That’s Just My Opinion posted a message in my comments saying he had done the same thing. Jimmy and I are trying to contact and encourage as many Texas bloggers as possible to contact Vincent and let him know that YOU are doing the same thing as well, lets send Cornyn a HUGE, Texas sized message!

    Please, if you believe that this is a very important issue, PLEASE contact Vincent and tell him that you’re dropping the logo too, and ask to be removed from their blog roll, no LINK is that important, request that your blog be taken OFF of their roll…
