In some families owning black slaves and treating them like animals was tradition...did that make it right?
That is all I really have to say. I`m not posting to bash Bush or defend him at, "all costs", I`m here to hopefully help both sides realize that arguing ove
No. When I became diabetic, I was in the greatest physical shape of my life. 5`9", 168 lbs. A month previous to the discovery, I scored my highest ever on a P.T. test.. two miles in 13 minutes!
I have type 1 diabetes, which is juvenile-onset. No known factors led to it. It shows up in people between birth and approximately 25 years of age.
Jiriki- It`s stupid comments like yours that make so many of the consevatives think that all liberals are just hateful idiots.
As for the protest, the squeeky wheel gets the grease man. Just cuz he`s the prez, doesn`t mean we have to respect him... plenty of ppl lost respect for Clinton... many of the same ppl sayin we have to respect Bush. Bu__Sh__ . It`s what America`s about, saying your opinion, no matter how small your voice, no matter how mis-informed, no matter how bias, or wrong. Spin it how you want. Listen to who you want, ignore anyone who disagrees. Beautiful systm aint it?
Freedom isn`t cheap... hence our country is in so much debt. Yet most ppl are more willing to spend their neighbor`s son on a war, then have their hard earned cash go towards taxes to pay for some more armor to keep him alive. (Thou I think he shouldn`t be there to begin with...
I don`t think you understood me. I know what this was. It was a protest. I want to see a tribute.
Did you become diabetic because you`re fat?
If you read the opening line, nowhere does it claim to be a tribute, It is a protest the whole way. It says its a protest. Interesting how you can not see the facts when they are right in front of your eyes. It`s as if your mind is already made up and you just want to hear yourself complain.
Isn`t it the same media complaining about the lavish spending, that was before complaining that Bush goes to bed too early and has dulled the Washington night-life. There are no special parties for them to attend where he is the featured guest. Perhaps they are pissed about that..
ANYONE that has made a comment about the humvees, social security, whatever, SHUT THE F*CK UP!!
The next time you are going to buy a beer, a bag of potato chips, or even a magazine; the next time you are going to purchase anything that is not a necessity, think about all the people that would just like you to know that your money would be better spent on armor plating for non-combat humvees. The next time you enjoy an ice cream, rememer that there is a soldier on guard duty unsure of the safety of the vehicle driving up to his post. Whether your lavish purchase is $40 or $40 million, it is your f*cking money. Spend it however you want!
That implies that anyone who doesn`t agree with you is a moron who just listens to what other people tell them to believe.
Sorry, don`t watch MTV. I watch Jon Stewart, but I watch because he`s FUNNY. Not because I need him to tell me what to think. I come to my own conclusions from paying attention to world events, I don`t need ANYONE to tell me what to think. You apparently can`t accept that two intelligent, educated people can disagree on issues. Maybe YOU need to sit back and think for a bit. People have different opinions on things, this is not neccessarily because they are stupid or listen to everything that someone else tells them, but because people are DIFFERENT, and therefore have DIFFERENT opinions.
Errant stereo type there. I`m Anti Bush, and arrived at my conclusion via an education in an institution of higher learning, personal ethics and experiance. I do not watch MTV nor John Stewart, I`m a professor with an m.div., world traveled and highly intellectual. I resent your comment that liberals only arrive to their conclusion via mtv. The majority of the world`s population is left, whether it be democractic, socialist, communist or communalist. Capitalism is a minority when it comes to world governments. Certainly you aren`t saying all of these political conceptions are a result of the media. After all, the the media is only as liberal as the conservative CEOs who own them, and last I checked MTV only had significant popularity here.
That said, the protesters give a powerful tribute, although as was said before, a tribute does not have to have a democratic theme, a "get us out of iraq" theme, or an anti-bush theme.
I`m with you there, all the Anti-bush mumbo jumbo from MTV clones who have no idea whats going on unless Carson Daily or John Stewart tells them need to sit back, think for a bit, and try to come up with a valid point.
that`s the site that the new lyrics are posted on, if you`re interested.
Anyway, this was on C-Span yesrterday. As for the inaugural parties, they are mostly traditional. (yes, clinton had them too). and most of the funding for them came from private parties, not government funding. And i agree 150% with what zooks said. all of the videos we see nowadays honoring the troops have democratic views.
Why do we need to spend so much money on the inauguration of a sitting president anyway?
