Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

(Taken from of Nov. 23) KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A 20-year-old Marine from Kansas City has been killed in Afghanistan.

Lance Cpl. Nicholas J. Hand was killed during combat operations on Sunday.

Hand, who was the third oldest of 10 brothers and sisters, graduated from Oak Park High School in December 2007. His mother, Dawn Hand, said he graduated early so he could join the Marine Corps.

He was only 17, but his parents agreed to sign him up if he could "prove to us he really wanted to go," Hand told KMBC's Martin Augustine. "When he was ready, in February, we signed for him. And he went to California."

His boot camp was in San Diego. Soon after, he was off to Iraq, serving one tour of duty there, before his deployment to Afghanistan.

Hand told his mother he was fighting for freedom.

His mother said Nicholas had a lot of friends in high school.

"Nicholas was a socialite," Hand said.

She said he always made time for everyone in the family.

"Instead of mourning, we're going to celebrate him because he was dedicated to both his family and his friends. And not just us, but for his cause. And he definitely deserves some respect for that," Hand said.

The family plans to have Hand buried at Leavenworth National Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are pending.
