...*sighs*...grow up, kid. I don't know where you get your so called "facts" from, but I'm gonna give it to plain and simple. And before I begin, let me express my personal opinion that both right wingers and left wingers and people obsorbed in politics in general, are shallow minded losers. However, the liberals, have aquired a new tactic that closer resembles terrorism than anything else I have ever encountered in american politics, save the communist party's ideals. This brilliant little antic basically consists of this:
I have a theory. This theory is not yet proven, yet if it were (and mind you, it will be, we just don't know enough yet!) then the world would be one step closer to utopia. What's that you say? it's not proven yet? well, meybe not, but it sure as hell sounds better than the other guys! *proceeds to spend endless hours shredding opponets ideas without giving any support to his own.*
and there you have it, folks: Modern liberalism in a nutshell. now, I don't mean this personally, but I would venture to guess the majority of your information comes from either news stations, news papers, or internet sources. Well, I know men enlisted in the military fighting in Iraq right now. I've heard the stories. And ironically, no american media quite makes the cut. In all honesty, their pretty much as flat out wrong as you can be without totally bsing what it is that's going on over there. I don't know Bush's motives, and frankly I'm just as displeased with him as the next guy. But I'd be lying to you if I told there was alot of amazing things happening there. Not necissarilly in the government/politics of the situation, but in the lives of the people there. These literally do not know what to do with their lives, because they have never been given the choice to live freely. I don't want o get all preachy like those loser speakers on veterans day, but I'm going to say this: You've got freedom, to a fairly immense degree. And these people have had their lives so thouroughly regimented they never really believed it could be any other way. Yeah, there are still the terrorists who kill marines and the like because they don't approve of what it is that our troops are doing. May I remind you that these guys were pretty much top of the heep before we showed up, shittin' on the little guys like those corporate buisness owners liberals seem to hate so much. Another comment, and a fairly sticky subject; American casualties. scarcely three weeks ago, we topped 2,000 dead service men and women in the three years since we first invaded. That's just under seven hundred a year. Now, let's take a stroll back through time, about 141 years and six months today. The town is Cold Harbor Virginia. I want you to picture, if you can, what it would be like if some one had flooded fields of crops, for as far as the eye could see, with blood. Then pepper tens of thousands of corpses around the field, oh say, every foot, give or take six inches. Now remember, as far as the eye can see. This is Cold Harbor at sunset, June 3rd, 1864. I don't remeber the total number of casualties; I don't want to. but one statistic stuck with me. When fighting engaged earlier that morning, 7,000 men died in the first twenty minutes. Take L.C. and then kill everyone off two times over in twenty minutes. In one day at gettysburg 52,000 men died. That parallels the ten years of the much despised Vietnam war. This is disgusting, how man can do this to man. and yes, a dead man is a dead man. a dead woman is a dead woman. a dead child is a dead child. and 5,000 dead men is 5,000 dead men. and that is how many more men died in twenty minutes at Cold Harbor than have died in this war you so avidly oppose. And like I said. I know people in Iraq. My close, close friend Tod is being shipped off to Marine Boot-camp in March. And yeah, I'm scared, and yeah I hate it. I wish it could all go away, war and all of it. But it doesn't. in all of recorded man there have been three days of total peace. So, even if we achieve one more, we'll make up for lives not taken on the next. I don't like war, but sometimes it's necissary. And if you were in Iraq before and after, you'd see just how badly it was needed there. So I say again, not as an insult, but rather as advice for your well being: grow up, pull your head out of your ass and realize that sometimes things just don't always work out the way we want them to and, as it has been said many times before, shit happens. And when it happens, you just gotta bust your ass and clean it up, regardless of what feels right. Reality and truth cannot be subjective. alternate reality is an Oxymoron. look them up and see for yourself.
Now, I will say this again. I've got bones to pick with the conservatives to, and do so on a regular basis. This isn't a personal attack on you, just a clarification of any misconceptions you might have on the topics stated above.
