An Email That I Needed To Share!

If you have a man at home let him know how you feel. I can only post pictures....no one to feel here. hahaha Sorry Tinkerbell but your a girl.

Sorry this picture has nothing to do with this email! Just thought it had to be shared.....

This email was forwarded to me by sister-in-law Linda who received it from a friend of ours from Colorado. The strange thing about this email besides the contents it was forwarded by a friend of mine Gene,who lives of all things half of a mile from me. His wife Barbara and I were best friends and lost her to Breast Cancer in Sept 2002. Strange how emails go all around the world and end back at your neighbors home.

I need to call Gene and find out when this was happened. He is retired from Nasa so I know if it were not true he never would of sent it out.

The email:
One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th,


I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen

a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston

due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff.



It was on Fox. This was NOT what happened.



I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire.

2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout

the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the

runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so

Familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called

one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the

Phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st

stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man

That cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if

she was not there.



The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same

and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane

at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back aisle, and one in

front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had

Taped the night before, and were very loud about it. Now..they are

only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. If a Muslim man goes

into a strip club, he has to view the woman via mirror with his

Back to her. (don't ask me..I don't make the rules, but I've

studied) The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have

electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men

Said "shut up infidel dog!" She went to take the camcorder and he

began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all

11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I

had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard

A voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say "I got

Your back." I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm

And said "you WILL go sit down or you Will be thrown from this plane!"

As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan

grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed

out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the

same!" He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was

going to go. As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and

3 TSA agents and 4 police officers entered. Me and my new Texan

friend were told to cease and desist for they had this under control.

I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion

in the back, but within moments, all 11 were escorted off the plane.

They then unloaded their luggage.



We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happen, when

suddenly, the door open again and on walked all 11!! Stone faced, eyes

front and robotic (the only way I can describe it). The stewardess from the

back had been in tears and when she saw this, she

was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and

saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY

she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her

they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with

a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston.



The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent "we and

our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew,

luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened

again and a whole new crew walked on.



Again...this is where I had had enough!!! I got up and asked "What

the hell is going on!? I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for

the delay and I would be home shortly. I said "I'm getting off this plane".

The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off.

(now I'm mad!) I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose

time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door,

or I'm going through that door with you under my arm!! But I

am going through that door!!" And I heard a voice behind me say

"so am I". Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the

same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane where I

Was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had

5 hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of

people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be

in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.



Look up the date. Flight #297 Atlanta to Houston.



If this wasn't a dry run, I don't know what one is. The

terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew

Would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.

I'm telling this to you because I want you to know..


The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes..

My guess this happened a year ago or longer but still it reminds us to remember how we are not loved by others. Sad so Sad

I am getting ready for a concert at Festival Hill this afternoon. They have ask me to hand out Programs and I was glad to be included in this event. Hopefully I can sneak in a few pictures of inside the Concert Hall. I have posted the outside gardens and chapel but not the inside.

Wish I you were here to share this with me. The weather is beautiful and I pray it stays this way because we are having a small family reunion next weekend.  Oh boy grandbaby hugs and kisses coming soon.

Enjoy your weekend
Love to all
Maggie

Wow, Maggie!! What a sory...I felt the little hairs on the back of my neck rise! You are right, it is sad and we have to be mindful that after 911 America was never the same. Interesting post.
Hope things are well with you and that you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Hi Maggie:
This is important to remember. Never again will American planes fly into American buildings, landmarks or fields in Pennsylvania. We will never forget, and we will never again act as sheep in the face of such a threat. The wicked need to know this of us. NEVER AGAIN!

This just goes to show ya, as you well know as a law enforcement officer, how easily those who want to hurt us can slip through the cracks. We truly, more today than ever, need to be aware of our surroundings.

Ya'll have a terrifically blessed weekend girl!!!

OOOooow, ' love givin' out those 'Grandma Kisses'. I have yet another Granddaughter party to go to tomorrow. With eight grannies it's a full time job...love it!

Off to work cattle, it's the annual fall cattle workin' day here on the Ponderosa, 'just waitin' for all the 'crew' to show up!

Susan said...

Wow. And right now, those knuckleheads are probably screaming to those other knuckleheads, the ACLU, that their rights were violated. If you or I had done that, we'd be in jail for it!

Susan said...

I checked this out on Snopes.com, which said the airline had tried to cover it up, but they had a link to a news program. A security officer of some sort said that most of this stuff had happened. I tried to paste the link here, but my crummy computer wouldn't. You can go to Snopes and look under religion or type in Flight to Houston cancelled when passengers all get off.

Hi Maggie,
I am so glad to hear that there are Americans who just aren't going to stand for it! These Muslims are pushing our buttons because they know they can get one over on the "politically correct" Americans and our dumb liberal laws!
Oh, don't get me started!

Anyway girl, I'm glad you stopped by the other day. I'm over here now to catch up!

Big ole hugs to you!

Hey Maggie, hope you have a great time at the festival.

There are all kinds of things that happen that the government doesn't share with the American people.

Sadly, incidents like this give Muslims a bad name. My husband is Muslim and he certainly isn't going around terrorizing anyone (except me). HA!

Wishing you all the best, Tammy :)

I can only begin to imagine the horror that you all felt on 11/9 we watched in disbelief as they reran the planes going into the towers, I am sure it is something as a nation you will not recover from.

I went over and read the Snope's account, too. Not quite as spectacular as this account, but still interesting in that there was some truth there.

Really scary!

Linda said...

I've read this before, and it is scary now as it was in the past. And those idiots on The View had their noses bent out of shape because Bill O'Reilly stated the obvious when he said the mosque shouldn't be built at ground zero because it was Muslim terrorists that crashed their planes into the towers. What a bunch of lefties we have in America.

yaya said...

We need more Americans like those fellows to stand up and not let anyone intimidate us or our nation again. Bravo to that group of citizens! Have a ton of fun at the concert and enjoy your fall weekend!

Kathy said...

Holy Moly !! I clicked on your blog post due to the "cute" picture of the older couple -little did I know I wold hear this terrible ordeal you had to experience. I am praying for all on the plane with you and boy if I ever need to fly I want you by my side:-) Now I am a little upset that Americans don't know the true story of why this flight was cancelled. You , big Texan and first flight crew need to be uplifted for your heroic manner.

Hi Maggie,

Love the sweet photo you have shared.
This sounds like such a such a scary ordeal.

Hope that all is well with you and that you enjoy the concert and have a lovely week ahead.

Hugs

Maggie, this is mostly an urban legend. The actual incident was quite banal, and the businessman who wrote the e-mail (Mr. Petruna) was not even on the flight. This is what happened: "According to all available records, Mr. Petruna’s trip originated from Akron-Canton, Ohio (CAK) on AirTran flight 205. This flight arrived at the gate in Atlanta at 5:06 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Flight 297, the flight which Mr. Petruna allegedly wrote a first-hand account of, originally pushed back from its gate in Atlanta at 4:40 p.m. EST, a full 26 minutes before flight 205 arrived at the gate in Atlanta making this flight connection impossible.

While Mr. Petruna was originally scheduled to begin his journey on AirTran flight 202 from CAK and connect to flight 297 in Atlanta he did not make that original flight."


We do, however, need to be really vigilant. For whatever reason, Muslim terrorists seem to be intent on killing everyone who is not a Muslim. It scares the heck out of me.

Libbie said...

Flying just isn't the smae anymore is it? but THAT would have been freaky! I had an experiance where I almost walked off because of VERY odd behavior by men in turbans, not sure why I stayed on....one man did refuse to sit by them though...sometimes I thonk those men were just trying to instill fear in all of us on the plane...& they did. But hereI am thankgoodness!

How are you moving these days? Praying your pain i s minimal!

Take care!!!
