Flag Draped Coffins


Many Republicans complained that Democrats have shown the famous picture of flag draped coffins being unloaded when returning to America. It seems to me that the Republicans are OK with the soldiers' death for a useless, fake war but not with allowing the American public to see them dead. After discarding other reasons for the Iraq War, like WMDs about to be used on us, the BushCo has settled on the idea of spreading Democracy and showing our hegemony over the troubled Mideast. Once again, real events show that this is nothing more than an RNC talking point.

The current mess between Palestine and Israel shows exactly how much authority the U.S. exercises over the Mideast. And oil is headed for $80 a barrel. This administration can't get anything right.Unless, of course, they want the oil companies to make even larger profits. This administration wouldn't do that at the expense of the general public, would they ?

To quote Al Franken- Operation Ignore is in full effect. It seems to be working. After months of ignoring the problem it seems that everyone has just settled in to the fact that we'll pay 3-4 bucks a gallon for gas. Notice how much of the press has forgotten about the war.

No, they would never do that. It's simply that they're even dumber than we thought. And we thought they were pretty dumb. Our mistake. We should never have given them the benefit of the doubt.

Gas costs too much, blame Exxon-Mobil or use less?

I am overweight, eat less and exercise, or blame McDonald's and Burger King?

Don't vote in elections, blame the "process", or look up how and where to register and actually join a party?

TV and the Media go to far, stop watching and read books, or sit around and complain?

Hmmm......

Awesome book but oh so sad.oops. Dumb or conniving,I don't care, I say we send them away for a long time and I aint talkin bout elections bxcapricorn. Vote for hillary if it makes you feel better but like drugs or drinking, the relief is only temporary.

Hey Coldflame, David Sedaris, Lawrence of Arabia and Coltrain are the ultimate Trinity.
