How I feel about it all: patriotic
Soundtrack: John McCutcheon - Our Flag
Read this.

Read it all the way to the end. It starts like a rant but ends very differently.

I may not sound like it all the time, but I really believe that the USA is a great, wonderful country. I think that's why I get so darned angry at TPTB.

Happy Thanksgiving, America!

P.S. When reading, note unobtrusive Rufus reference. *g*

Your icon bothers me because there's no apostrophe in "it's".

a jagged scar on the heart of a wary America that other countries point to in years to come and say wow that's a nasty scar where'd you get that, and we reply, George W. Bush, and they go, oh my God, that's right. So sorry.

Good article, really good, thanks for reccing it.

*remaining calm* *breathing deeply* *counting to ten*

This article offended me on so many levels. The writer is certainly entitled to his extremely misguided opinion. However, I chose to completely disregard it because the writer levies personal potshots at the president that are at about the grade school level ("bumbling", "inarticulate"). As one who considers herself a writer - as well as an adult - I am disgusted (but not surprised) that the left has sunk to such a level as to be hurling these types of childish jibes at the president. How petty. Any points the writer may have wanted to make are wiped out by his infantile ranting. What's next? The left hiring Chevy Chases to reprise his old Gerald-Ford-as-bumbling-idiot routine? The writer should also take a trip to the heartland and stop speaking as if he speaks for us all. The the vast majority of us who don't live on one of the coasts support our president and are quite proud of the job he's doing overall. And God bless him for going to Iraq on Thanksgiving. The act speaks volumes about the man's character. The left will spin it as a PR stunt, but I couldn't care less, nor will anyone who realizes that the one of the end results of the trip was a huge morale boost for our beloved troops. That Bush will get a jump in the polls is irrelevant compared to that.

Kel, when am I going to learn to not click on your stupid political links???

I almost forgot....

<< brutish occupying army no one asked for that is right now laying waste to whatever remains of your once semi-proud oil-rich nation... >>

How f**king dare he. "Brutish"???? The troops are out there taking the hits so the ungrateful author doesn't have to and he has the *gall* to call them brutish? HE should get down on HIS knees and thank God for each and every one of them. So should we all.

<< We offer humiliated apologies to our former allies, and to the 200,000 Bush/war protesters in London, just last week...>>

The author should speak for himself. Personally, I offer zero apologies.

Re: I almost forgot....

Oh, sweetie, I didn't know you were still reading my journal. I didn't get my email yesterday or today (I've been away), so I don't know if you answered my letter. I'll start with the cut-tags right away. I really do write a whole lotta stuff that's NOT political...I think I did four posts in a row that were about books or music. *hugs*

I'm really glad he went to Iraq on Thanksgiving. I think the troops needed the morale boost. Whether it is politically motivated or not is indeed irrelevant. Those poor kids who are spending the holidays away from their families and friends shouldn't be a political tool for anyone, Republican or Democrat (although I'm not R or D, myself). I'm just thankful that my own loved ones who were over there are home now (Well, relatively home--they're in Hawaii, which isn't such a bad thing a'tall).
As for whether my links are stupid, they're reflecting opinions, not intellect. I don't think anyone's political opinions should be a reflection of who they are as a person. I think it would be pretty boring if everyone thought the way I did *looks at eclectic friends list*. I'm sure, no, I'm positive, that there are other people on my flist who don't agree with me at all.
