Quotable Quotes

"We believe that God used our holy war in Afghanistan to destroy the Russian army and the Soviet Union,'' he said. "We did this from the top of this very mountain on which you are sitting - and now we ask God to use us one more time to do the same to America, to make it a shadow of itself. We also believe that our battle against America is much simpler than the war against the Soviet Union because some of our Mujahedin who fought here in Afghanistan also participated in operations against the Americans in Somalia [during the doomed UN mission] - and they were surprised at the collapse of American morale. This convinced us that the Americans are a paper tiger. -- Robert Fisk on September 15, 2001, quoting Osama bin Laden

I am Andrew Nowobilski and I work at the Heritage Foundation, a think tank in Washington, D.C. I see that you have taken quite an interest in Social Security reform, and have linked to our websites before. I thought that you might be interested in a new gadget that we've recently added to our website.

It is called the NOdometer, and it ticks off every second how much money saying 'no' to Social Security reform is costing younger workers today. To take a look at the NOdometer, follow this link:

http://www.heritage.org/Research/SocialSecurity/NOdometer.cfm

We invite you to put the NOdometer on your site. At the link above are simple one-step instructions to embed the NOdometer on your weblog--perhaps in a sidebar or in a post. It is vital that more politically active Americans, such as those who read your weblog, know that failing to reform Social Security carries with it a steep cost, rising by the minute.

If you have any questions about or problems with the NOdometer (perhaps you need a hand putting it on your site), please email me at andrew.nowobilski@thfintern.org.

Sincerely,

Andrew Nowobilski
