RE: Here it comes - the Schiavo autopsy.....
For the record, I have had reasoned discussions with dissenters who are citizens of this country. I am not offended at their dissent. They have that right. Do some dissenters behave seditiously and treasonously? yes. I have told them so on occasion. They have a right to dissent, I have a right to react.
Outsiders also dissent. They have that power. I will defend my country's honor to them every time though in which ever way I see fit. I have that reponsibility.
I see it as the same dynamic that can be found in a family. A family member can be a total loser and it's okay for other family members to say so. But, if an outsider calls that family member a loser to his family, they have the right to defend him.
Another example. Ever wonder why Americans of African descent call each other the "N" word continually? I have no idea. My great grandmother used to use that word when I was a little kid. It made me cringe then and still does to this day. To the point, a caucasian calling an American of African descent the "N" word is absolutely hammered for doing so, while they do it among themselves regularly.
Same principle. Same reaction....at least from me.
