The church may host large crowds in their worship services; they may deposit millions of dollars in their accounts; they may receive applause from politicians, but they are not confessing Christ! Why? Because they are totally absent from the field of batt

I mean totally absent! For the record, the real battlefield today is not abortion. It is not homosexual marriage. It is not Social Security. It is not al Qaeda. It is not taxes. It is not inflation. It is not electing conservatives. It is not posting the Ten Commandments. That is not to say that those issues are not important and not deserving of our best efforts and attention. We have fought and continue to fight for those issues. But those issues do not represent the major battlefield today.

In the most ethnically diverse county in the nation, Independence Day is celebrated again and again and again.

In Astoria, American flags are often seen, and Greek ones, too (Independence Day March 25). Across Queens, March 26 is Bangladesh's turn. Many immigrants welcome July 4 as a day to share one identity. Independence Day is celebrated once a year in most of America. In Queens, the most ethnically diverse county in the nation, where an estimated 44 percent of the 2.2 million residents are foreign born, it is celebrated again and again and again. But July 4 is different. It is a day that looks forward, not back.

Press 3 for the destruction of America's most important national 'glue' if we lose our country's language: English!

Nothing irritates Americans more in our country than being forced to choose between our English language and Mexican Spanish being forced upon us by millions of illegals. We suffer becoming second class citizens in our own country. Our language takes a back seat to a foreign language by foreigners that don't respect us enough to learn English.

They're the students who go abroad to boost their CVs, have a laugh - and help out in the developing world at the same time. But this week a charity claimed that young people on gap-year trips risk doing more harm than good.

Buoyed by three A-levels and a place at university, Jonty and Bunty and a quarter of a million of their mates set out to save the world. First they went climbing in Kathmandu. Then they stumbled into a local school and taught English to baffled Nepalese. Fifty spliffs and a thousand emails later, they returned home with a Hindu charm and tie-dye trousers. They had lots of great stories but the world remained thoroughly unsaved.

In the neighborhood President Bush visited right after Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. government gave $84.5 million to more than 10,000 households. But Census figures show fewer than 8,000 homes existed there at the time.

Now the government wants back a lot of the money it disbursed across the region. The Federal Emergency Management Administration has determined nearly 70,000 Louisiana households improperly received $309.1 million in grants, and officials acknowledge those numbers are likely to grow.
