4th of July, 2005



1744 American deaths and 13,074 Americans wounded since Bush started Iraqi war on March 19, 2003.

God bless the dead and wounded, the men and women who serve, and their families and communities.

This is a day to celebrate what our military died for. Not a day of morning. Get your holidays straight.

Frank,

Our oldest is an active duty member of the armed forces. Your post is ABSOLUTELY appropriate.

Thank you.

Frank,

Nothing like using the 4th of July to politicize the suffering of the dead and their families!

I understand you have strongly held views, but really, your post and pic was terribly inappropriate.

Do you EVER have any positive ideas of your own? EVER?

The 4th is supposed to be the day we celebrate our independence from The crown. I also saw this post as nothing more than another opportunity to slap Bush. It strikes me how liberals have the utmost disrespect for people serving in the military until they have a chance to use those men and women's sacrifices as a political statement. From one side of their mouths they feign support for the troops and the other side of their mouths compare OUR troops to NAZIS. I was disgusted to see a yellow ribbon with a circle and slash through it that said "The Germans supported their troops too" on a bumper while driving up I-75. Real nice.

Sorry, wasnt trying to sound like "limbo". It's just my oppinion that soldier's lives shouldn't be used to slap Bush. Plenty of other areas to slap at Bush but, by capitalizing on a persons sacrifice for a political jab is plain sick. Especially when those same people who are pretending to care, openly call our soldiers nazis from the other side of their face.

don't know anyone who'd say a thing like that. I'd like to see our soldiers back home with their families. Don't want our generation to make the same decisions they made with Vietnam. Don't generalize about Democrats and progressives - we are fiercely patriotic, sincerely proud of our troops, and heartsick about Bush sending kids to their death in a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.
