I have not ONCE made a stupid comment or a childish joke - i state cases and back everything up - When you see that I am right - it scares you quite a bit and the only defense you have......... is a blatant personal attack with childhood banter.
Repeating lies because you have elected to repeat them instead of examining the facts for yourself and posting your assessment, and then claiming you don't engage in posting stupid or childish comments is, well, revealing. It reveals a set of values that could be held dear, I suppose, if used to justify a generally self centered, greedy outlook on life that is characterized by mental laziness. Not very attractive attributes and not very likely to make people here think highly of someone.
The issue is that it is fundamentally an American characteristic to doubt the word of those in authority. From the colonists to modern times. Without that healthy doubt, the government feels no compunction to justify its decisions to the people it serves. Americans know this. Bush was given carte blanche for several years, an undeniably un-American characteristic of the press and the people. All in response to the attack of 9-11-2001.
Bush subesequently made bad decisions and America let him off the hook for reasons that still baffle me. He continues to make bad decisions that are flawed from their inception because they assume starting conditions that do not exist. Like the surge. It was never described in any terms of how the failure to secure order in Iraq was understood and that this change would fix those flaws, and why anyone would believe that. It was just a bunch of empty rhetoric about the "surge" and that it had to be supported to give us a chance to "win."
When even the concept of "win" had not been defined in any terms that could be used to measure whether or not it had happened.
To invoke a bunch of "liberals are traitors" rhetoric, or suggest that those advocating not sending more troops to their deaths because the no-mission mission was a waste of the lives of those who have already been victims of Bush's private agenda is "disrrespecting the troops" is utter nonsense. Think hard about this. Wanting to save the lives of the troops is not disrespecting them. Making the "decider" 'fess up to sending our sons and daughters to be killed and maimed on a no-mission mission, which means his mistakes have cost the lives of American troops needlessly, is demanding un-spun, brutal honesty. Something that is required if one is to make such decisions, and something we don't have now and have not had since 9-11-2001. Jim
