          Political leanings aside, we owe our very way of life to those serving in the Armed Forces today and all who have gone before them.

            [/quote]Man we got our own people going crazy with bombs and stuff. It will not stop and the end of the world will be near for all of us. There will be another World War that will destroy a lot of faiths. This will set up the coming of the anti-Christ. Then all of the things of the holy bible will come to pass in another 100 years when most of the faith have been gone. Before that.. I was just joking. hahahahah.

              [/quote]Our way of life is still not that good. We have to look inside our own Country for the other half of the solution. We are failing in a lot of things like Education. Without it, the enemie can easily come here as business owners.




              As an Indian-African American-Irishman, I will still solute the tropps. I wish they didn,t have to go over there to fight. Also we need to start to educate more people in our countryso thatit can not go back in hard times. I feel that we are headed in that directionin even with the Troops overseas.

                Fine, but the problem is "over there" should be Afganistan. Had we focused all of our attention there, this entire thing may have been over now........with Saddam still vertiually no threat to us.




                It s bogus war, and my support for the troops is about getting them out of harms way. Sadly, nothing will change no matter who gets into office. The entire system is 'on the take.' So you Liberals will be in for a shock if you thing "change" is coming. It isn't.

                  Nice idea, by the way RF. But this thread will be deleted shortly.




                  I really wish we still had the CE sforum again. I wanted to really get into a discussion about George Carlin as a philosopher, but I can't find a place to do it. His death affected me.

                    I guess the fact that you see it that way makes it "indisputable" huh? I happen to think that the 300billion dollars a year could have went to improve a whole lot in this country rather than forcing our will upon the rest of the world.
                    We want the rest of the world to be as we are yet every single process we have in this country is either completly inneffective or is corrupt.
                    Our pub schools are a mess
                    our justice system is a mess
                    our health care system is a mess
                    social security is a mess

                    We throw stones living in a glass house. Secure our borders, bring home our troops, get ourselves fixed and THEN lets fix the rest of the world.

                    If this was all about the innocent people getting slaughtered why exatly aren't we in Africa?....or Berma?..........because they have nothing we want.

                    I served my time. I have seen the things many of you think you may want to see and our boys shouldn't be where they are right now.

                        "In a conversation recently, I mentioned as an aside what a great president George Bush has been and my friend was surprised. I was surprised that he was surprised.




                        I generally don'ttalk about the manifestly obvious, but, yes, the man responsible for keeping Americans safe from another terrorist attack on American soil for nearly seven years now will go down in history as one of America's greatest presidents.




                        Produce one person who believed, on Sept. 12, 2001, that there would not be another attack for seven years, and I'll consider downgrading Bush from "Great" to "Really Good."




                        Merely taking out Saddam Hussein and his winsome sons Uday and Qusay (Hussein family slogan: "We're the Rape Room People!") constitutes a greater humanitarian accomplishment than anything Bill Clinton ever did -- and I'm including remembering Monica's name on the sixth sexual encounter.




                        But unlike liberals, who are so anxious to send American troops to Rwanda or Darfur, Republicans oppose deploying U.S. troops for purely humanitarian purposes. We invaded Iraq to protect America.




                        It is unquestionable that Bush has made this country safe by keeping Islamic lunatics pinned down fighting our troops in Iraq. In the past few years, our brave troops have killed more than 20,000 al-Qaida and other Islamic militants in Iraq alone. That's 20,000 terrorists who will never board a plane headed for JFK -- or a landmark building, for that matter.




                        We are, in fact, fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them at, say, the corner of 72nd and Columbus in Manhattan -- the mere mention of which never fails to enrage liberals, which is why you should say it as often as possible.




                        The Iraq war has been a stunning success. The Iraqi army is "standing up" (as they say), fat Muqtada al-Sadr --the Dr. Phil of Islamofascist radicalism -- has waddled off in retreat to Iran, and Sadr City and Basra are no longer war zones. Our servicemen must be baffled by the constant nay-saying coming from their own country.




                        The Iraqis have a democracy -- a miracle on the order of flush toilets in that godforsaken region of the world. Despite its newness, Iraq's democracy appears to be no more dysfunctional than one that would condemn a man who has kept the nation safe for seven years while deifying a man who has accomplished absolutely nothing in his entire life except to give speeches about "change."




                        (Guess what Bill Clinton's campaign theme was in 1992? You are wrong if you guessed: "bringing dignity back to the White House." It was "change." In January 1992, James Carville told Steve Daley of The Chicago Tribune that it had gotten to the point that the press was complaining about Clinton's "constant talk of change.")




                        Monthly casualties in Iraq now come in slightly lower than a weekend with Anna Nicole Smith. According to a CNN report last week, for the entire month of May, there were only 19 troop deaths in Iraq. (Last year, five people on average were shot every day in Chicago.) With Iraqi deaths at an all-time low, Iraq is safer than Detroit -- although the Middle Eastern food is still better in Detroit.




                        Al-Qaida is virtually destroyed, surprising even the CIA. Two weeks ago, The Washington Post reported: "Less than a year after his agency warned of new threats from a resurgent al-Qaida, CIA Director Michael V. Hayden now portrays the terrorist movement as essentially defeated in Iraq and Saudi Arabia and on the defensive throughout much of the rest of the world, including in its presumed haven along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border."




                        It's almost as if there's been some sort of "surge" going on, as strange as that sounds.




                        Just this week, The New York Times reported that al-Qaida and other terrorist groups in Southeast Asia have all but disappeared, starved of money and support. The U.S. and Australia have been working closely with the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia, sending them counterterrorism equipment and personnel.




                        But no one notices when 9/11 doesn't happen. Indeed, if we had somehow stopped the 9/11 attack, we'd all be watching Mohammed Atta being interviewed on MSNBC, explaining his lawsuit against the Bush administration. Maureen Dowd would be writing columns describing Khalid Sheik Mohammed as a "wannabe" terrorist being treated like Genghis Khan by an excitable Bush administration.




                        We begin to forget what it was like to turn on the TV, see a tornado, a car chase or another Pamela Anderson marriage and think: Good -- another day without a terrorist attack.




                        But liberals have only blind hatred for Bush -- and for those brute American interrogators who do not supply extra helpings of béarnaise sauce to the little darlings at Guantanamo with sufficient alacrity.




                        The sheer repetition of lies about Bush is wearing people down. There is not a liberal in this country worthy of kissing Bush's rear end, but the weakest members of the herd run from Bush. Compared to the lickspittles denying and attacking him, Bush is a moral giant -- if that's not damning with faint praise. John McCain should be so lucky as to be running for Bush's third term. Then he might have a chance."

                          lol.........The weakest minds always have the weakest reasoning. There are FAR more many evil people in this world doing things as bad or worse than Saddam.............the problem is, there's nothing "in it" for corrupt leaders to profit from.

The Iraqi army is "standing up" (as they say), fat Muqtada al-Sadr --the Dr. Phil of Islamofascist radicalism -- has waddled off in retreat to Iran, and Sadr City and Basra are no longer war zones. Our servicemen must be baffled by the constant nay-saying coming from their own country.




                            The Iraqis have a democracy -- a miracle on the order of flush toilets in that godforsaken region of the world. Despite its newness, Iraq's democracy appears to be no more dysfunctional than one that would condemn a man who has kept the nation safe for seven years while deifying a man who has accomplished absolutely nothing in his entire life except to give speeches about "change."




                            (Guess what Bill Clinton's campaign theme was in 1992? You are wrong if you guessed: "bringing dignity back to the White House." It was "change." In January 1992, James Carville told Steve Daley of The Chicago Tribune that it had gotten to the point that the press was complaining about Clinton's "constant talk of change.")




                            Monthly casualties in Iraq now come in slightly lower than a weekend with Anna Nicole Smith. According to a CNN report last week, for the entire month of May, there were only 19 troop deaths in Iraq. (Last year, five people on average were shot every day in Chicago.) With Iraqi deaths at an all-time low, Iraq is safer than Detroit -- although the Middle Eastern food is still better in Detroit.




                            Al-Qaida is virtually destroyed, surprising even the CIA. Two weeks ago, The Washington Post reported: "Less than a year after his agency warned of new threats from a resurgent al-Qaida, CIA Director Michael V. Hayden now portrays the terrorist movement as essentially defeated in Iraq and Saudi Arabia and on the defensive throughout much of the rest of the world, including in its presumed haven along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border."




                            It's almost as if there's been some sort of "surge" going on, as strange as that sounds.




                            Just this week, The New York Times reported that al-Qaida and other terrorist groups in Southeast Asia have all but disappeared, starved of money and support. The U.S. and Australia have been working closely with the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia, sending them counterterrorism equipment and personnel.




                            But no one notices when 9/11 doesn't happen. Indeed, if we had somehow stopped the 9/11 attack, we'd all be watching Mohammed Atta being interviewed on MSNBC, explaining his lawsuit against the Bush administration. Maureen Dowd would be writing columns describing Khalid Sheik Mohammed as a "wannabe" terrorist being treated like Genghis Khan by an excitable Bush administration.




                            We begin to forget what it was like to turn on the TV, see a tornado, a car chase or another Pamela Anderson marriage and think: Good -- another day without a terrorist attack.




                            But liberals have only blind hatred for Bush -- and for those brute American interrogators who do not supply extra helpings of béarnaise sauce to the little darlings at Guantanamo with sufficient alacrity.




                            The sheer repetition of lies about Bush is wearing people down. There is not a liberal in this country worthy of kissing Bush's rear end, but the weakest members of the herd run from Bush. Compared to the lickspittles denying and attacking him, Bush is a moral giant -- if that's not damning with faint praise. John McCain should be so lucky as to be running for Bush's third term. Then he might have a chance."

                            Ann Coulter?? Really? You're going to use Ann Coulter as a reasonable arguement? Why didn't you just say "Mega-Dittos"? It would have saved a little cutting and pasting.




                            Listen, I am not arguing for the Liberals in this country..........the ENTIRE system is broken. Nothing is going to change no matter what happens in November. The lack of actual demorcacy in our own government is astounding.

                            I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                              Its a sad world we live in , but we gotta keep it going over there so they don't bring it over here, again!

                              Such a simple and indisputable fact and yet it completely mystifies those on the left. They would prefer leaving it up tothe criminal justice system because that approach was oh so successful under Bubba.




                              We owe everything to those folks over there.fficeffice" />>>

                              Fine, but the problem is "over there" should be Afganistan. Had we focused all of our attention there, this entire thing may have been over now........with Saddam still vertiually no threat to us.




                              It s bogus war, and my support for the troops is about getting them out of harms way. Sadly, nothing will change no matter who gets into office. The entire system is 'on the take.' So you Liberals will be in for a shock if you thing "change" is coming. It isn't.

                              So I guess you think it was cool that Sadam butchered millions? Sadam's kids put soccer players through a woodchipper when they lost. We would not have Eli.

                              lol.........The weakest minds always have the weakest reasoning. There are FAR more many evil people in this world doing things as bad or worse than Saddam.............the problem is, there's nothing "in it" for corrupt leaders to profit from.
